    This are the rules for games: 

    1. You can buy digital games only from the  region your account is set up on

    2. You can buy discs from any country and they will work with your account.

    3. All DLCs and In-game consumables need to match the region of the disc.

    4. Vouchers will work on your account only if they are for your accounts' region.

     

    Hope this helps!

    Check the CUSA code of the game if you buy the digital version to match the one for your Store. 

    That code will tell you ofr which region the game is. 

    You can find the code in the URL of the Product when you browse the PS Store for you region. Lemme give you an example.

    https://store.playstation.com/en-gb/product/EP9000-CUSA11995_00-0000000000MSMDLX?smcid=web%3Apsn%3Aprimary%20nav%3Asearch%3Aspider%20man

    This is the United Kindgdom as you an see in the first part and the CUSA code for it is the second part which i have Bolded.

    Do the same for your Greek store and check if the digital version you want to buy has the same CUSA code.

    Your account information doesn't match the locale in the URL.
    Proceed to the Greece-English store

    You have to buy the last one. 

    It has GR in the URL . That mean's Greece.

    The first one has US which is for United States and it won't work.
