Can You Really Gift A PlayStation 4 Game To Someone?
You can’t gift someone PS4 game directly, unless you’re buying the disc and then mailing it to them, that’s old fashioned way. another way is through gameshare, but still you’re placing your account at risk, because it involves login into your account and setting it up as your primary account on that console, this will place your PSN account at the risk of getting banned.
Is There A Solution?
For sure there is an alternative that allows you to offer gifts cards to anyone so that they can redeem the code and order any game they want. PlayStation gift cards are available at different retail outlets, both online and offline. eBay and Amazon should be your top priorities since you can find discount and also different amounts are available, right from smaller units that cost $10, to upward of hundreds of dollars. You can order small units such as $10 PSN Cards or $20 PSN cards and more.
When you find a game you want to gift someone, instead of buying and sending them hard copy on CD, you send them PSN gift card in amounts that’s equivalent to the price of the game. If for instance a game costs $50, you just need to order $50 PSN card and then send the code to anyone you wish to redeem the code from PSN Store, it’s as simple as that.
