Gamesharing is a popular practice among PlayStation 4 (PS4) gamers. It involves sharing your PSN account with someone else so that they can play games on your console without having to buy their own. This article will guide you through the process of setting up and using gamesharing on PS4, step by step.

Setting Up Gamesharing

The first step in gamesharing is to create a new user account on your PS4. To do this, go to the "Settings" menu on your console, select "Account Management," and then choose "Create New User." Follow the prompts to set up a new account with a unique username and password.

Next, you will need to enable remote play from another device. Remote play allows you to access your PS4 games from another device, such as a computer or mobile phone. To enable remote play, go to the "Settings" menu on your console, select "Remote Play," and then turn it on.

Finally, you will need to share your account with someone else. To do this, go to the "Friends List" on your console and find the person you want to share your account with. Then, select their username and choose "Share Play." Follow the prompts to complete the sharing process.

Using Gamesharing

Once your account is shared, the other person can access your games by connecting to your PS4 remotely. To do this, they will need to have a PlayStation Network (PSN) account and a compatible device that supports remote play. They can then connect to your PS4 by going to the "Settings" menu on their device, selecting "Remote Play," and choosing your console’s IP address.

One of the biggest benefits of gamesharing is that it allows you to play games with friends who don’t have a PS4. For example, if you have a friend who only owns an Xbox, you can use gamesharing to play games together on your PS4. This is especially useful if you don’t want to buy multiple copies of the same game for different consoles.
