If he has a PS5 why did he buy the PS4 version?

Disc copy prices were the same, £45 ish (PS4 and PS5 version) UK give or take the odd pound do a quick Google if you don’t believe me.

I got the PS5 Disc from Shopto which has the PPSA 01874 code :messenger_confounded:
Looks like its "From Russia With Love"
Only installs 31GB before the PS5 cries in agony
I'm sending it back.

With the old assasins creed you had to make a Turkish account and get the upgrade that way. As it appeared then. Not sure if this will work again in the scenario.

Mines exactly the same number but from The Game Collection and installed perfectly fine.

Region Coding is still a thing?
I thought that practice was a thing of the past.
I was going to say it's because of the price difference (since that's how it works on PC with Steam, for instance, we get locked out to prevent pricing abuse, and that lets us keep game prices two to three times lower than Europe), but then I checked and the physical PS4 edition of the game is the regular, direct-conversion price here. Weird.
