How to configure game share on PS5

With most games being digital only, it’s not as easy as it used to be to share your games. You can already get a digital-only PlayStation 5, and the new version is said to have no disc drive by default.

Fortunately, like the PlayStation 4, the PS5 includes a feature that allows game sharing. With a little bit of know-how, you can share the best PS5 games you have with all your friends or family members. However, every new console comes with a new interface and navigation system. Here’s what you need to know about game sharing on PS5.

Enabling streaming of your best PS5 games can be easier than enabling the feature on PS4. That is if you familiarize yourself with the updated terminology. In the new console, this feature is called “Console Sharing and Play Offline.” Here’s a quick guide to setting it up.

Step 1: Log in to your PlayStation Network account on your PS5.

Step 2: From the main menu, click the Gear icon located between the magnifying glass and your avatar to access the Settings tab.

Step 3: Select Users and Accounts.

Step 4: Scroll down and select the Other option.

Step 5: Select Console Sharing and Offline Play. If the text says this option is enabled on your PS5, that means you’re not able to gameshare and need to select disable.

Step 6: Log out of your PSN account on your PS5.

Step 7: Log in with your PSN on the console you want to gameshare with.

Step 8: Navigate to the same menu and select Don’t Disable in the Console Sharing and Offline Play menu.

Step 9: Log out of your PSN on this console.

Once the person you’re sharing the game with backs up from their PSN account, they’ll have access to any compatible games on their PS5. Use this wisely. As we know, you can share the game only with one other person, so make the right decision. Worst case scenario, you will be able to disable the feature and try again from the beginning to share it with someone else.

You may be wondering if the game sharing feature works both ways. The answer is yes: the person you share it with will have access to your library and you will have access to all the games in their control. Say the release date for all the exciting titles coming to PS5 soon!
