Yes but with the recent update it says on my console the person who shared needs to be signed or is it just me. Any help but it is something to consider

​What console is that?
I've got an Xbox one and a PS4 and I game share on both, the process is pretty much identical. It's very easy to set up and the only thing you need is an internet connection and you're good to go.

You mentioned getting a second console - what's your first one?
how do you game share on ps4?

how do you game share on ps4?



​set your console as your sharing Buddy's primary console and they do the same with your account, each of you will then be able to play each others digital library and your own.

currently have both xbox and ps4 so wondering which to start buying digital on.

So no issue both playing same game at same time?

No problems whatsoever, you can both play at the same time, in the same game (if you want to play coop etc) with a single purchase of any digital game. It's been possible since the 360.
