How To Gameshare On PS5- Everything You Need to Know

If you want to learn how to gameshare on PS5, then you will find everything you need to know in this easy step-by-step guide.

Sharing games with your pals is great, not unless you have to navigate through an entire disc collection that’s already neatly arranged just to look for the game you want to share. But thanks to the easier feature of PS5 game sharing, you are now able to share games without breaking any sweat. 

What are the benefits of Gameshare on PS5?

The Playstation 5 Digital Edition came to the rescue by developing a next-level console that comes with features similar to Playstation 4 when it comes to game share. What’s also interesting is that you can also share games from PS4 with your PS5.

This will allow users to share their digital games with any users they please and let them play with them as if it is their own. However, this feature only allows game sharing with one person. Therefore you must make it count.

One handy benefit that this feature brings is that authorized users don’t have to purchase the games. Additionally, they will be able to access any PS Plus benefits that the user is enjoying.  All you have to do is to follow some simple steps.

With a whole new interface, menu, and settings, it can be tricky when you are gamesharing for the first time on your PS5. But it’s actually pretty simple and rewarding.

Here is how to gameshare on PS5.

Set Up Your Own Console

  1. Make sure that your console is connected to the internet before proceeding to the other steps.
  2. Log in to your PSN account by entering your password and username. Once done,  find the Gear icon on the main menu, positioned between your avatar and the search tool to access the ‘Setting’ option.
  3. On the Setting tab, search for ‘Users and Accounts’. Open it and select the ‘Other’ tab. 
  4. After successfully entering, you can see ‘Console Sharing and Offline Play’. 
  5. If the Console Sharing and Offline Play options are enabled, click ‘Disable’ for you to be able to gameshare to another console. This is very important for the sharer. If you find a text saying ‘Enable’,  it means that you won’t be able to gameshare, so change it to ‘Disable’.
  6. Finally, you can log out of your PSN account and proceed to the console that you wanted to gameshare with.

Setup The Other Console

  1. Log in to your account in the other PS5 that you wanted to game share with. 
  2. If your account is not yet logged on to the console, you need to create one and sign in. 
  3. Again, find the Gear Icon,  and go to ‘Console Sharing and Offline Play’. 
  1. Once there, click ‘Don’t Disable’ for you to be able to activate gameshare.
  2. Log out of your PSN account from the console.
  3.  Once the owner logs in again with his own PSN account, he can now access your games and content from the first console.

What to do if Gameshare is NOT working?

Gameshare is strictly limited to one system at a time; thus, if you are the sharer make sure that you have clicked the ‘Disable’ option on your console before you activate it to the other console that you want to share with. 


Note that the gameshare features are two-way, meaning once you are game sharing, other users signed into your PS5 console can have access to your game and media library and can use what you have purchased and downloaded on their PS5 and vice-versa. 

If you wish to disconnect, you can disable it on the person’s console and re-enable it on yours by following the aforementioned steps.
