I bought the RDR2 Ultimate edition for PS4. I game share with my buddy and  he's telling me he can't find the game in my purchased games on my profile on his machine. Can anybody help me direct him on where to find it?

If the game is

 

Not Installed:

Library -> Purchased (Categorized A-Z) -> Not Installed Section -> Look for Red Dead Redemption 2 under R

 

Installed: (The game might have installed on his PS4 if he had turned on Automatic Download option)

Library -> Purchased (Categorized A-Z) -> Installed Section -> Look for Red Dead Redemption 2 under R

 

Should be simple as that :)

Thanks, we have never had issues like this with our game sharing, but then again hes never tried to download a preordered game from my profile before.

If your friend still have issues downloading the game, he might as well try it online from a laptop or a computer.

 

Here is what I found on PlayStation.com

Can I start downloading games remotely?

When you purchase a game, you can choose to start the download to your PS4 remotely via a web browser. To perform a Remote Download, you must have Automatic Updates switched on.

  1. On the Order Confirmation page or the Download List on PlayStation Store, select [Download to your PS4] next to the title you want to download. 
  2. If Play as you Download is available, select which part of the game you want to play first. 
  3. Your game will begin downloading automatically. If Automatic Update is not switched on it will begin downloading when you next turn on your PS4 system.

I never downloaded any game remotely so I can't help him much, but only provide you this which might help your friend. So he might be able to download the game before its release :)

So i tried to start the download from my desktop via playstation store. His wife needs to turn on the console when she gets home. He may have to walk her through switching profiles.

 

Side note: Any info beside the basics on the companion app

 

The source of the problem: wasnt signed in on his machine. got it figured out and downloading.  Thanks friends

Nope. The disc will only work on whatever console its currently inserted into
