    Re: PS+: Might be worth noting that while the same subscription works across PS3/PS4, you won't be able to access the free PS3 games on your PS4 due to compatibility (maybe this will change with Gaikai streaming?).

    If someone else on the console wants to play online, do they have to have PS+ as well or is it xbox, where if one person has it, everyone does?

    I'm pretty sure this is correct but I wanna make sure. I have a mate over in the US atm, if they get me Killzone: SF I can play SP and MP fine here on a NZ account, I just won't be able to activate/buy DLC?

    Correct. You'll need to buy DLC on a US account, which you'll still be able to play on your NZ account so long as the US account has it's primary console activated on your console.

    Why are you getting your mate to buy it?

    https://store.sonyentertainmentnetwo...ystation-store $39.99usd

    or http://www.amazon.com/Killzone-Shado.../dp/B00BGA9YZK $39.99usd.

    Ok then, that's a deal. Follow my guide to buy the DLC if you want to go down that path.

    When I import a game from the UK or AU (are we an AU state to Sony?) that includes DLC or game codes, will or won't they work? Eg BL2 Vita DLC, FF X-2 Vita download code from NZGameshop, or TLOU1 edition. Or even online pass games like Unit 13 and LBP? I've asked this around the place and haven't been able to find a concrete answer. I understand that it's definitely a no go for NTSC games.

    Both the UK and NZ are PAL games so DLC from the game will work on an NZ account, but there are some exceptions, ie. I think modern warfare 2.

    The only things I know don't work for sure are the Playstation Plus subscriptions.

    When I asked the same question when I first got my PS4 I think someone said the NZGameshop PS+ code didn't work
