PS4 owners will be able to request Blu-ray activation offline

PlayStation 4 owners can request a Blu-ray activation disc if they are unable or unwilling to connect their console to the internet, according to a post from social media manager Sid Shuman on the PlayStation Blog.

Those interested can request the disc by contacting SCEA Consumer services. The disc will then be sent via mail.

PlayStation 4 requires a day-one system update to enable Blu-ray and DVD capabilities. Once the patch is downloaded, users will need to perform a one-time activation via internet.

PlayStation 4 launches Nov. 15 in North America and Nov. 29 in Europe.
