Can you use the same disc on two ps4?

Answered by Frank Schwing

Absolutely! I’ve actually had personal experience with this situation, so I can definitely provide you with a detailed answer.

So, let’s say you and your friend both have a PS4 and you want to play a game that your friend owns. The good news is that you can use the same disc on two separate PS4 consoles. Sony doesn’t place any restrictions on lending or borrowing games between friends or family members.

Here’s how it typically works: your friend can lend you the game disc, and you can simply insert it into your own PS4 console. Once the disc is inserted, you should be able to install and play the game without any issues. The game will be fully playable on your PS4, and you can enjoy it just like if you had bought it yourself.

It’s important to note that both consoles will need to have an internet connection for the initial installation process. This is because the game will likely require some updates or patches to be downloaded before you can start playing. However, once the initial installation is complete, you won’t need an internet connection to continue playing the game.

One thing to keep in mind is that while you can use the same disc on two PS4 consoles, you won’t be able to play the game simultaneously. In other words, if your friend wants to play the game while you’re using the disc on your console, they won’t be able to do so. The disc can only be used on one console at a time.

Additionally, it’s worth mentioning that this applies specifically to physical game discs. If the game is downloaded digitally from the PlayStation Store, it is tied to the account that purchased it and cannot be shared between consoles.

Borrowing and using the same game disc on two separate PS4 consoles is completely possible and allowed by Sony. It’s a great way to try out new games without having to purchase them yourself. Just remember that only one person can play the game at a time, and both consoles will need an internet connection for the initial installation process.
