PSN (PS3 / PS4) Gamesharing questions help?
Ok so lets take 2 people, we will call them David and Terry. (lets assume David and Terry are flat mates or best friends and trust each other fully)
now on the ps3 game sharing (in its semi intended/ tolerated way) works like this:
ps3 1 is Davids he has his account and Terrys account on the console
ps3 2 is Terrys and he has Terrys and Davids account on the console
any accounts on either of the ps3's have access to the content of David and Terry's accounts, so if David buys Battlefield 4 then terry and david can play it at the same time on their ps3's and indeed if John visited David he could play Battlefield 4 on his account on Davids ps3 or Terry's ps3
There terms and conditions in the sony store for ps3 games clearly state and allow this:
Purchase or use of this item is subject to the PlayStation Network Terms of Service and User Agreement and this item's use restrictions. This item has been sublicensed to you by Sony Computer Entertainment America. This item may be used with up to 2 activated PlayStation 3 systems associated with this Sony Entertainment Network account.
Purchase or use of this item is subject to the PSN Terms of Service and User Agreement and this item's use restrictions. This item has been sublicensed to you by Sony Computer Entertainment America. One-time license fee for play on purchasing account’s designated, primary PS4 system and other PS4 systems when signed in with purchasing account.
Ps4 1 belongs to David, it has Terry's account set as the primary account but he logs into it using his own account.
Ps4 2 belongs to Terry, it has David's account set as the primary account but he logs into it using his account
Both David and Terry then have access to their own stuff and each others but should John visit he can only use his own stuff and terry's on Ps4 1 or his own stuff and David's on ps4 2
So that leads us to the questions that only people with actual ps4's can answer at the moment:
1) does the above gamesharing method work as theory'd ?
2) what is the advantage of having the system as your home system? ie would David have any issues as his home system is actually Terrys and vice a versa
3) can games be used on 2 ps4's at the same time that are licensed this way (as they can on ps3)?
Am pretty sure you need to be logged in on their console so they download it from your account on to their console and then they can use it on their profile on their console.
Game sharing can be wonky ground but if you limit it to one other console/user you should be OK.
