I just bought a new PS4 and I was asking myself: is it possible to download games on an external hdd using a PC?!
For example: I'm using my PS4 on the WLAN1 at home but I want to download PS4's game on an external hdd using a PC on the WLAN2 at work.
I know it may sound like I'm asking how to download illegal copies of the game but the real reason is very simple: my apartment is not reached by any kind of dsl so I have to use WiMax (and downloading something with a WiMax connection can take from 4 to 6 days). At work instead I have a 100mbit connection.
So, basically, my question is this: is it possible to download games (VIA PSN) using a PC on an external hdd?!

  • There's the possibility to download content from the PlaystationStore from a remote location to your PS4. faq.en.playstation.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/9487/~/… – vkvau Jun 1 '15 at 15:31
  • @vkvau, that's a possibility to start download remotely, actual downloading is still done by PS4. – icebat Jun 2 '15 at 8:17
  • @icebat I am aware of that but failed to point that out. Thanks for your remark. Since it's not answering OP's question, I thought he might find my method useful. I usually access the Store using my phone or computer and order my Playstation to download games. – vkvau Jun 2 '15 at 9:14

Unfortunately not, the only way to download digital games from PSN currently is via a console.

You could take your PS4 + external drive to work and do it that way, but I don't think this is what you're looking to do (And that way you could just take the PS4 itself).

  • I'm just looking for a way to download digital contents with another connection WITHOUT bringing with me the console... :( – Leon Jun 1 '15 at 12:25
  • Yeah, it is strange to me they still don't provide this as standard :/ – djsmiley2k TMW Jun 2 '15 at 11:07
