What's the best way to redeem a Collectors Edition on PS5?



  • I preordered the (physical) Collectors Edition of "Horizon: Forbidden West" for my son for Christmas, and it should get here soon. I understand that it doesn't come with a physical disc (which is disappointing, but it is what it is) but with a code instead (which includes bonus content).

    My son (who is 12) has his own Sony account (with parental controls) which is part of my family settings and this account is also logged in to the PS5 (but the main account is mine).

    Are there any gotchas to look out for when redeeming this game and content? Can I just apply it to my son's account and install it? Or would it be better to apply it to my own account?

    Will we both be able to play the game (including bonus content) as long as we use the same PS5?



  • The question is if your son has an active parental control on his account. Horizon Forbidden West will be rated as PEGI 16, and since he is 12 he won't be able to play it on his own account.

    Probably it's better if you redeem the code on your own account.
