Do you use the same PSN account on both PS4's?

If not, then you can have both accounts homed on that PS4, download the game from account #1, then logout and play from account #2.

But account #1 still needs to be bound to that PS4.

If you move account #1 to another PS4 then all of the games it had downloaded will be deactivated and account #2 will no longer be able to play them (you'll get an invalid licensing notice).
