If you’re looking to share your digital downloaded games with a friend on their PS5, you’re in luck! It’s a fairly simple process once you know the steps. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the process of game sharing on PS5.
Firstly, it’s important to note that game sharing only works with digital downloaded content. If you have physical disks, this will not work. Another thing to keep in mind is that your friend can also share their games with you, so you can both enjoy a wider variety of games. In this guide, we’ll focus on sharing your games, but the process is very similar if you want to receive games from your friend.
To get started, go to your PS5 and jump into your settings. From there, navigate to “Users and Accounts” and then to “Other”. You’ll see a button that says something like “Console Sharing and Offline Play”. Click on it and if you get a pop-up about disabling it, click disable. If you get a pop-up about enabling it, don’t enable it. This is because you’re on your own PS5 and disabling it only affects other accounts on your PS5. You can still play your games. Disabling it will ensure that your friend is able to play the game on their PS5.
Next, log into your own account on your friend’s PS5. Head to “Users and Accounts” and then to “Other”. Enable console sharing and make sure to click on the “Store Licenses” button. This will ensure that any downloaded content is available on your friend’s PS5. You’ll still need to download the games from your library onto your friend’s PS5. Your friend can play the games at the same time as you, even in the same lobby, as long as they’re logged into their own account.
And that’s it! Game sharing can be a bit complicated, so if you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment below. We hope this tutorial was helpful.
