Gaming consoles like the PC via steam and Xbox one comes in handy when it comes to share ps4 games with your friends and family. But if you are thinking ps4 is behind in sharing more games digitally then it’s not far behind in allowing the games you want to share. We used to buy digital copies and share the game which is now harder to wait and have patience to get the disc.
Sharing apps, digital games and other downloads is possible with the primary and non primary account feature of the PS4. The benefit of the sharing games through primary and non primary feature is that when you own a primary PS4 system you can enjoy all the applications which you have downloaded from PlayStation store and other users on the system can also enjoy from that particular account. Which means the main user downloads ant other users get to play isn’t it cool! With some benefits there are limitations too like this sharing method only implies to digital games and apps and you can deactivate a PS4 system from the main system only. You will need an active internet connection while you log in to non primary PS4 for authentication. Who cares with the limitations when we get to play together!
