PS5: How to Game Share and Screen Share

If you're feeling a bit generous or just need some help in a particularly tough game, watch this video to get you set up with Game and Screen Sharing on your PlayStation 5.

Game Share allows you to let your friends take over playing your PlayStation 5 games over the internet. Using this feature, you can let your friends take control of your PS5 game and give it a whirl. If perhaps you're struggling with a certain difficult game, using this new feature added with PlayStation 5 they could even help you through a difficult portion.

In addition to game sharing on PS5, your friends can even just sit back and just watch you play. You'll be able to start a party and allow up to 99 friends join in and watch you play.

Stick with IGN for so much more on the PlayStation 5 and the next-generation of gaming.

@PSYCHO Did you even watch the video? This is not the same game sharing. It allows you to control your friends ps5 and play a game they are sharing
PSYCHO - 3 dager siden
Please tell me you're joking. The PS4 has had this feature for the past 2 or 3 years. One person owns the game and your friend from across the world can play it from your system.

What about the session length, are you still restricted to one hour at a time, and always need to restart shareplay after that? And can you still only shareplay with one person in the party? I mean with a maximum of 99 party members, why not 99 pictures in pictures? :P. Nah for real, on Ps4 you could use SharePlay with only one party member at a time, 4 people would be nice though.

Game sharing and play sharing are two different things. You can only share purchased games between two consoles at a time as far as I know.

“Screen sharing is a brand new feature added to the PlayStation 5.”
Uh, no, it’s a feature on PS4 as well, and has been for years. Granted the implementation on PS5 is more elegant with PIP and so on, but the fact that IGN doesn’t even know basic stuff like this speaks volumes.

The key to screen sharing is love. When you're in love the screen shares very easily but when you're not in love the screen sharing is spotty, non-committal, and conditional. Also screen sharing for Last of Us Part 2 stops working after golf club cameo because that's tainted fool!!
