Question on purchased pre-ordered game

[ Edited ]
4 replies 144 views Edited Aug 7, 2014

I have two accounts that I use on both my Playstation 3's. On one of  the accounts, I have bought 4 pre-ordered games (Battlefield: Hardline, Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Destiny & Dragon Age: Inquisition.)

 

The first account that I'd made; which was several years ago,  I set the language to German & I because of this, I had to set my system settings to "German", before I was able to download anything.

 

I bought these 4 pre-ordered games on the wrong account (the old german account) and I am wondering, will I be able to download these games from my old German account, on my other system and use these games on my new online account? I'm pretty f*cked if I'm not able too Smiley Sad

 

Please help.

And if you buy DLC for any of those games I think they have to be from the German account. I'm not entirely sure about that although it's better to be on the safe side.

Thank you!

 

I'm new to buying pre-ordered games on the playstation store. Once I had went onto my downloads list and selected these 4 pre-ordered games on my other console, a menu came up telling me that told me the date in which the games would be released.

 

Under that info, there was a box which said once it was ticked, it would automatically download. Once I'd checked the box and clicked next, a loading menu came up; almost as if it was going to download, but no more came up. The lack of info after this was a little alarming.

 

When I try to select the games again on my downloads list, nothing happens at all. Is this playstations way of saying it's already been activated? Will the game automatically download and install on the release date? I'm rather confused  Smiley Embarassed

When I preordered Hohokum it gave me the release date (Aug. 12) and a pre-download date (Aug. 10). I don't know if it automatically starts downloading, but it definately pre-downloads manually.
