Can dlcs from US store be played using SG PS+? I just bought Star Wars Battlefront 2 and the upgrade DLC which is the Celebration upgrade in the US store. Once it downloads, i logged out and login to my main SG PSN account to play but strangely, on the main menu, there's a option to buy the upgrade which i already bought in the US store.
ps plus is only for online play. if your sw game is from sg asia then your dlcs have to be bought from sg psn store otherwise they don't work. only some games can work.

they should work if both your sw game and dlcs are from us store. can try to delete and reinstall both game and dlcs.

Not all. Better get dlc from the original game stores.

Oh, my bad for being unclear. I meant that my Shovel Knight game and its DLCs are BOTH from US Store. And I am able to play them successfully on my SG account instead.

sg or us account doesn't really matter. it is the region of the game that matters.

this is why our local game stores sell europe region 2 games cheaper than asia region 3 or us region 1 games cos their dlcs are hard to buy. if you don't intend to buy dlcs then the region doesn't matter.

thanks all. it finally worked for some reason.

my SW game and the upgrade DLC is from US store. it just took a couple of exits out of the game and relaunched.

From your description, I assume these:
- You bought both the base game and upgrade DLC from US store.
- You switched to SG account to play it, successfully (you can access contents of both the base game and DLC).
- However on the main menu, the game shows you an option to buy the upgrade DLC, which you already owned.

My theory:
- The game's coding is a bit lazy. Since you are using SG account to play, when the game checks for DLC purchase, it checks the SG PSN store, it checks whether your SG account bought the DLC. The right thing to do is to first check whether DLC is present/installed, regardless of region. If found (and it should be found), then mark it as purchased, no need to check PSN store.

- For this particular game, I see that both US and SG PSN versions have product ID "CUSA05770". So in theory the DLCs are cross-region compatible with the base game. (Not sure about the microtransaction DLCs, it's possible they are account locked.) Maybe that's why the game's coding is confused, cos it found that your account playing the game (SG account) does not own the DLC which it found on the store (SG store).

Bottomline, if you can play it and access both contents, just ignore the menu.

I read wrongly. I refer to dlc matching game psn. Yes, any dlc can buy played using any psn plus.

thanks for the very detailed breakdown. i managed to get it working but yeah, ignoring the menu was what i was going to do if it didn't work

Hi. I need to get a original ps4 dual shock controller. I saw some users at carousell selling it at $35. I find the deal is good but after I Google search. There are fake ps4 ds4 controller around. Any ideas those are fake? Then I have to get it from amazon sg which is selling at $46 for the black colour.

Those are all fake. If you want original, it's now $60 on sale at most of the stores(usual price $79).

Why cannot? You change account as well when you change to ps5, no right?

let's set aside ps5.

for ps4, once u redeem the code. u complete the game, u delete the game, u decide to replay again, u can redownload the dlc and stuff which u redeem the code previously.

so in theory, yes u could do the same for ps5
now for ps5, can't advise as ps5 full actual details is not out yet. all we have is leak/rumours here and there

lastly for dlc code, there's a deadline as well.

LOL, WWE 2K20 doesn't work in 2020. Literally, every mode will blue screen the PS4. Just another glitch added to the mountain of glitches (seriously, there are tons of funny youtube videos).
