So it works just like an App Store. You can have different accounts, but anything purchased and downloaded from that account has to be updated while logged into it. Will all work though no matter which account you're signed into.

To create a US account, you just need a valid US address. So I just use my Youshop address. Don't need a US Credit card.

Awesome, thanks. I might purchase The Last of Us from NZGameshop and use a PSN account then :D

JayTaicho: Mines just arrived too. FYI, digital games from the US store are cheaper than buying NZ. Just need to buy credit from Amazon.


Do you have to create a USA PSN account? if you install the games and switch account to an NZ one can you still play them?

NZGameshop sell some cheap games for digital download that require a US PSN account as well. e.g. http://www.nzgameshop.com/ps4-games/the-last-of-us-remastered-ps4-psn-digital-download-game-usa-psn-required


Got my copy of TLoU from here. Legit and cheaper.

Has anyone tried contacting The Warehouse to see if they can get the games? Or at least an answer from them?

I didn't bother as the way I read it on their website it didn't imply free games were bundled, seemed more of a buy one from this list of games at a reduced rate.

Mine arrived today with no games. I agree with Poll, I don't think those games were ever supposed to be bundled with the PS. They could have made it a bit clearer but at $417 I'm not complaining.

I ordered two games at the same time as the ps4 and the codes discounted those items too and the special hasn't finished so could be worth checking out what they have available. Earlier in this thread The Last of Us was linked at a pretty cheap price for download only.

I grabbed Battlefield 4 from EBGames yesterday, they were advertising it as $35 or $38 but for some reason it came up as $28 when I got to the checkout. Bargains all round for me :)

If you get PSN+, you get 2 weeks free when you sign up, you can get Driveclub, Metal Gear Solid V and a couple of arcade type games from the store for free.
