Game Download Speed on PS4 Will be Reduced

Sony intends to reduce the download speed and performance of its Internet service in Europe. This is to avoid overloading the connections necessary for remote operation and communication.

Concerns are growing as to whether the European Internet can withstand the growing traffic caused by the coronavirus pandemic and quarantine. In the interests of connection stability, the quality of content has been reduced by Netflix, while YouTube has changed the default resolution of videos in its database. Sony decided to join these two sites. Today Jim Ryan, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, announced that the company intends to work on "managing" the speed of downloads. As a result, some of the web services offered by PlayStatiob are expected to operate at a slower pace, but the fun on the Internet itself should avoid any major disruptions.

PlayStation's network services can run slightly slower.

The president of SIE thanks for understanding the situation, because in his words, these actions will enable to keep the Internet available for everyone.
