Unfortunately, this doesn’t seem to match the PlayStation Store. The PlayStationStore seems to have no way to provide the correct version without user intervention, so it keeps accidentally downloading the PS4 version of the purchased game. Nevertheless, there are reports that you can choose which version of the game to download after this server-side update.
Of course, Microsoft solved this problem before the start of the new generation, thanks to the Smart Delivery feature, which allows players to always get the right version for the console without having to do anything other than start the download.
Thank you, VGC.
