Sure we can play and import PS4 games from another region, however, if you bought an imported game and that game has DLC vouchers inside it for in-game content, one is unable to redeem the code. Doing so will result in this:

Hello.

I have a trial of PSNow (2 days yet until it’s over), I tried battle chasers and liked, so this week the game is cheaper and I wanted to buy, but can’t buy because PSN says I have bought the game and only can download. The state of games you played change when PSNow is over? Or you can’t buy again a game you played?

Thanks
