    Disc-based Installations

    So my sister-in-laws PS3 died, so I am sending her my old 120gb. I have a few discs of games that she has as well, so I thought I'd get them installed for her before hand to save her some time. Will her game discs work with data installed from my discs? Or does that even really matter as long as it is a legitimate installation. Thanks!

    Yeah, it should work.

    Also, that is an extremely nice gesture on your part

    To my understanding he wants to install the game data so when his sister in law receives the game all she has to do is pop in the game instead of waiting for it to to install

    Provided that the discs she has are both the same edition and from the same region, this will work. A very nice gesture indeed.

    Oh, I read it as him wanting to install the games so that she could play without him having to surrender the discs... XD

    Reading through it again, I can see what I missed the first time, but there shouldn't be a problem as long as the region matches up.

    Awesome! lol Fast replies. Yeah I figured it'd work as well (though I hear it works differently on PS4?). She has the oooold first edition 80gb fatty aaaand it recently pooped on her, and my 120gb has just been gathering dust. The game in question is DOA5Ultimate, basically. I was going to install it, get it all updated (to Last Round) and do all the f'n millions of Catalog crap so her 2 outfits will work etc. Anyway, thanks! Just wanted to save some time lol and not have her get the system and it say 'incorrect disc' or some nonsense. Guess we'll see!

    As long as the BLUS match, then you'll be fine. Also, good lookin' out for your family and a fellow gamer in distress.
