Newsbrief: Sony has rolled out preloading for preordered games via its PlayStation Network service on PlayStation 4, with select games able to be downloaded prior to their release so they can be immediately played.

The first game to take advantage of preloading is Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, which launches on June 24. Preloading has been a popular feature on PCs for years, but had yet to come to consoles.

It's worth noting that not all PSN games are eligible for preorders, though all games that players can preorder are now eligible for preloading. As of this writing, only 16 PS4 games can be preordered on the U.S. PlayStation Store.
