Is there a way to unlock a preload game early on PS4. Someone in another post was suggesting you could but I have no idea how.

I think it was Dunny but he also said it compromises your PSN account/ability to play online.

I'm sure your console has to connect online to unlock the game and I think it even downloads some last bit when the timer's up so there should be no way. Maybe if your console's hacked.


Yeah that’s what i always thought. Like you need a seed or something. That’s why I was shocked when this person claimed people had been doing it for ages.


Maybe on a 3DS as TC mentioned. Although I'm not sure if Nintendo really did such a crappy job so you might need a custom fw for that. The PS4 has been hacked too a while ago. Don't know what the current state there is but through normal means there's no way to get around it.

Theme downloads right away.

I'm not sure about the size. One video I watched someone mentioned around 12GB on the XBOX ONE. Seems like a game this size would be more though so don't quote me on that. :)

Since I've just looked into it a bit it seems that it's actually possible to play games on Xbox up to 24 hours earlier than normal in your timezone. It sounds like you can switch regions on the Xbox without having to switch accounts. Definitely not a thing on PS4 but here's the link to the topic: https://www.reddit.com/r/DestinyTheGame/comments/6vbpd7/how_to_play_d2_a_day_early_for_us_xboners/

you will need to do some research to use this

look up using a proxy on your ps4

Care to elaborate further on this? Do you have to connect to some fake Sony server someone set up and is there an actual risk involved? In case it could work because like I said, normally the game downloads a few MB or so once the countdown's up so you shouldn't be able to play before that.

I googled and couldn’t find anything. People don’t like to talk about it.

I don't know about the ps4, but what I usually see is for world wide release games, people make their consoles think they are japanese or such, least with 3ds games since often they can start playing/downloading a few hours ahead.


I've never heard of that working on PSN or eShop. The only place/method I've seen where people were able to do something like that was if the game releases in another region first and you just straight up buy the game in the other region off that region's network. For example, years ago I got a PS3 game called "The Awakened Fate: Ultimatum" a week before the US release because I downloaded it off the EU PSN. Not sure about Xbox systems. Now, on PC I've heard of people using VPNs to unlock games early on certain platforms(like Steam or Origin or whatever). Though that can get your account banned so definitely not worth it.

Just buy digital from australia. They are the most ahead in the timezone and gets to play it first with exceptions to early access like Japan.
