(As originally asked here...)
Can multiple accounts on one console play a digitally downloaded game?
I skipped Playstation in the current gen, so I'm not familiar with how their games and accounts work on ps3, nor whether it's changing for ps4...
Currently, on the 360, I have gold for my own account and the kids are both on silver.
Ultimately I'm wondering if I download a game onto my console in the front room can the kids log into their profile on that machine and play that game? (as they can on the 360). And if they can access them, do they need ps+ subscriptions to do so? (they don't on the 360).
I'm now worrying at the prospect I might need to pay £120 a year in subscriptions instead of the £40 I've been planning on...
If they can, and I can log into a different console (as per the article linked to above) presumably we could conceivably be playing it simultaneously on two machines...
Brendan's on point in the original post, but this new video has a couple of extra hints regarding the PS4. Apparently one console can be designated as your "home console," which retains your content and SEN ID even if you reguarly sign into other consoles. I assume that all accounts on that particular system will probably be able to access the games and content.
Looks like the kids will be able to access my games, despite me only paying one subscription. Fears assuaged.
