Yes, PS4 can function as a Blu-ray drive. It can play the protected Blu-ray disc(with the same Blu-ray Region Code ) and homemade Blu-ray disc, while not including 4k Blu-ray disc. In this article, I will mainly talk about how to play 4k Blu-ray disc on PS4.
As game lovers, we must know the PS4 and the Blu-ray disc. For better game enjoyment, some game discs are 4K or 3D movies or Blu-ray disc (high definition resolution). In the past, we usually use DVD to storage games so that we can play different games on PS4.
Is the PS4 a good Blu-ray player? Can you play Blu-ray on PS4 without trouble?
It is well known that PS4 and Blu-ray disc are both made by Sony Interactive Entertainment, so PS4 offers native support for Blu-ray discs apparently. It can play the protected Blu-ray disc(with the same Blu-ray Region Code ) and homemade Blu-ray disc, while not including 4k Blu-ray disc.
However, if the region code is different between your Blu-ray disc and PS4, how to solve it? And how to play 4K Blu-ray disc on PS4?
In the next part, I will show you how to solve these problems.
If you don't have PS4, you can also try to play Blu-ray on PS3.
