    Will that stop the code working?
    The game was sealed and appeared new when I had it.
    How did you enter the code, that's only possible if the store is online? Which it is.

    Uninstall the original PC1, or better both. Having 2 Versions of one game installed can lead to confusion.

    Did you actually manage to enter the code without getting this message? If not, forward a screenshot to the seller and ask for advise.
    In case he still claim's that the code was never used before, contact Sony to find out if this is the truth.

    The most important thing is to have a bit more patient my friend. Take a deep breath and relax a bit.
    I'm not a PS4 owner, but there are enough PS4 owners here who are gonna help you.

    It would seem the Play Store is down and this maybe the problem with the "invalid code" ??

    I have accused the seller of selling me a counterfeit game (or pre-used code) when in actual fact, this may not be the case?

    The problem may just be the Play Store being off line? Apparently, according to the people in this house that can use the internet better than me, the Play Store has been broken for the past 4 weeks !!!!!

    I come from the days of games coming in a cartridge and working straight out the box!

    Could this whole situation be Play Stores fault?

    Thanks,

    Here is a link where you can see the status of the playstation network : http://downdetector.co.uk/problems/playstation-network
    This link is from the UK, you can see in a lot of countries the network is down.

    When the playstation network is back, try to enter your code again and it probably will work.

    The Playstation Servers are having issues today that is true. I can assure you that no company be it nintendo, sony or microsoft would 'survive' with it's online store being 'broken' for 4 weeks. I regularly use my PS4 and I know for sure that the Playstation servers and all of its components are online and stable 99% of the time.
    If anyone disagrees with me on this one then sorry but this has been my experience as a day one owner of a PS4.

    Now, in your case: usually if something is wrong with the PS Servers you would not be able to enter the PS Store alltogether. Nevertheless there are issues this afternoon so I suggest you to keep calm, drink a tea and try it again in 24 hours.
    If you do have the same issue then contact the retailer.
    But please do realise that it is your own fault for not buying the game from a certified retailer or even from the PS Store. There is no need to blame it on the 'complicated', which it really isn't, system.
    As I said, try it again in 24 hour if not contact ebay and go through with claiming your money back.

    Just as a fun fact. I have 2 friends that own a Xbox one and more then a handful that own a PS4. I can assure you that the Xbox system is more complicated, this being stated not only by me but also by the 2 mentioned xbox owners I know.

    Too old to try and understand PSN, yet can negotiate forums and raise complaints with PayPal etc... The chances of a fake ps4 game, sealed, that installs and works are near enough nil. Invest the effort in using what you have bought rather than causing a legitimate seller problems is my advice.
