I bought a digital game (Rainbow Six) today and I must download the data from play station network. My friend owns that game on a disk. Could I install his game on my ps4 istead of downloading the data from psn?

  • How about trying and then letting us know? :)

  • I'm pretty sure that this wont work. If you got the BluRay just the important things get installed in background for faster access while the whole game get installed if you download it from psn.

    Do not edit your existing questions to ask new ones just because this site is limiting you. If you can't ask for 5 days, there's a reason behind that... Commented Jan 22, 2016 at 22:14

No it won't work. You have two versions of the game: digital and physical. Your friend has physical and doesn't need to authenticate through Sony's servers; digital versions do.


It won't work. I own Bloodborne digitally and physically, but when I want to use the digital version, I need to delete the whole game just to redownload it.
