Want To Share PS5 Digital Games? Here’s How You Can Enable It
Game sharing across profiles on Sony’s PlayStation 5 — just as with its predecessors — is one of its best features. Summarily, the company allows a console that you’ve logged into to share your games across other profiles on the console. And that doesn’t just mean the one you use yourself every day. You can, in fact, share your PS5 games with another console, if you know how to enable it. With caveats.
The first caveat is, of course, that you can’t keep sharing games across profiles on more than one console. At least not at a time. For instance, you can log into your PS5 at home and share your games. But you can’t then enable the feature on another PS5 and share games there too. The feature will need to be disabled on one console or the other.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t log in to more than one PS5 and enable sharing on one that isn’t necessarily yours. While keeping your own games on your own profile on your primary console so that you yourself can continue to play them. And that’s exactly what this guide is here to walk you through. So if you want to ready your own PS5 to stop sharing and enable another PS5 to share your games, read on.
Here’s how you can enable game share features on another PS5 console
Now, the process of setting up the game share feature on a separate console is actually not as straightforward as might be hoped. In fact, it requires a complete set of steps on both the console you want to share games with and your own console. That makes the process somewhat more convoluted than it might otherwise be if, for example, Sony was allowing game sharing on any console you’re logged into. And certainly more an involved process than simply sharing game discs.
