    PS4: How Digital Sharing Works..(Or how actually SHOULD work)


    Registering your PS4 as your primary system will allow other users who play on the same console with different accounts access to any games you've downloaded without you having to log in. Additionally, if you have PS Plus and register a PS4 as your primary console, then every account that plays on that system will be able to make use of certain benefits like online multiplayer even without their own PS Plus subscription.

    If you want to play on another PS4 that isn't your primary console, you can download any game you've bought on the PS Store as long as you sign into PSN. Only you'll be able to start the games you've downloaded, and you can only be logged into two consoles at any one time: your primary PS4 and one other secondary one (like a friend's). The good news is there's no limit on the number of systems you can download your games to. You have to be logged in in order to play, but from the sounds of things this means you can share digital games with as many mates as you like, though only one of these secondary consoles will be able to play a title at any given time and you'll have to tell them your password so they can log in.

    As has been mentioned before, the situation with discs remains the same as ever. Sony has reiterated that, "You can share disc games with your friends and play used disc games on your PS4 system just like you can on a PlayStation 3 system. You do not have to connect to the Internet or pay any usage fees to play used games."

    So if you have a close friend and you both have PS Plus accounts and you share your user passwords, then that means you would both be able to constantly share each of the games that you both purchase? Unless I am misunderstanding this, this seems like a great incentive for many people to purchase games via a download.

    Yes and no. There's absolutely no way they'll both let you play the same game simultaneously and anyone can easily understand why (you're meant to buy a game for 1 person not for 2).

    The more I read about the next-gen systems to more I'm happy that I'm a PC gamer, all I see is a Steam with a twist.

    So the way i see it there won't be much difference, except it'll be less problematic for cases where more people use same console.

    I don't see it as anything big, but looks like a step in a good way.

    It should also be nice if you have different psn accounts to let's say have access to asian games but you want to play on your european account, you use your different region accounts only for shopping.

    The password is for security reasons to avoid your account get hijacked or whatever.
    I guess that password when they use the *secondary console example* is one random generated (something similar as steam) to let other friends of yours to log in. Not your PS plus password but like i said probably something random generated or a password of your choice in order to share and not compromise your PS plus main account.
    If that friend which you are sharing your games, suddenly want to delete all your data that's when this *2 step verification* kicks in. After all you don't want a turd deleting your games...while you are away.
    Also similar to PS3 in some point,

    I think IGN tried to explain the basics while is pretty obvious over the Sony's FAQ.

    I hope the same. Region lock over accounts is a pain in the arse.
    I mean i have a EU and US account thus PSN never reach this area so i can't do anything over here, using my own regional account.
