PS4 Game install question

3 replies 119 views Edited Nov 15, 2013

I have pre ordered the digital upgrades for BF4 and COD Ghosts. I understand thats over 80GB's worth of data for the PS4 for both games - which will put me over my data cap. My question is - do I have the ability to start the install from a physical disc? My buddy has bought the physical discs - I was wondering if I install from  his discs - then go to PSN to begin the digital download editions I purchased - will the system recognize most of the data already present and just download what is missing (ala Steam) ?

(Just to clarifiy - I bought the PS3 digital editions of both games - so by upgrades I mean the $10 to transfer to PS4 - and the physical discs I have access too are PS4 also)

No. You can't. 

The disc based games are CACHE files.... not an actual install. 


If your friend doesn't have a data cap, take it to his house to download your games. Or use the local Libraries' internet
