PlayStation®4 games can be played on any PlayStation®4 system from any region. Game add-on content availability is based on the country/region associated with the country in which your account on the PlayStation™Network was created. This includes downloadable content (DLC) and items that can be consumed (in-game currency).
To ensure you will be able to access your add-on content and DLC, make sure the following match:
If the 3 areas above do not match, you will not be able to access any of the add-on content for the game.
To avoid this, before purchasing a game disc, make sure that the country matches the PlayStation™Store country that you will be using to purchase add-on content. Also, be sure to purchase games from reputable retailers that match the country tied to your account on PSN.
You can check on the back of the game case. There will be printed material that lists which countries the game is licensed for.
The country in which your account on PlayStation™Network and PlayStation™Store was created is the same. You can sign in to your account on PlayStation™Network and check the country.
If the country of your disc and the country in which your account on PlayStation™Network was created do not match, the add-on content will not be accessible. The country code of your account is selected at the beginning of the account creation process and cannot be changed.
