In this post we will explain how to activate your game code in your PS3/PS4.

Note : Make sure your ps4 is connected to the internet.

Using a temporary account provided by the seller
  1. Use the login and password to your temporary account on PS3 / PS4.
  2. Use this temporary account to download the game directly to your PS3 / PS4. 
  3. You can connect using the given login details in the email sent by the seller. Configure that account as your main account. First, deactivate your primary account, then switch to the temporary account then enable that as your primary account.
  4. You can now see the game in your download list and you will be able to download the game from your temporary account.
  5. If you are finished downloading the game, log out of the account and log-in to your personal PSN account.
  6. Repeat step 3 to set up your account as the primary account.

As EASY as that, you now have the game on your personal account 🙂
