Naturally, you’ll have the opportunity to browse and buy games from the PlayStation Store through the software, and instruct your PS4 or PS5 to start downloading a purchase remotely. That’s something you could do through the PS Store previously, but on PS5 you’ll also have the option to manage your console’s storage in case you need to free up space for a new game. With the PS5, the app will also allow you to remotely launch games.
Today’s update is something the PlayStation App sorely needed; it was starting to look dated and was missing features. It’s hard to say how much utility people get out of a phone app that allows them to manage their console, but if you’re going to offer an app of this type, best to make it as compelling as possible.
