Play With Friends

Both Xbox Series X and PS5 have launched this week, and that means anticipation has reached a fever pitch.

The PS5 is chalked full of new features, including ones to level up your gaming experience. 

This may be your first try at Sony's console, as it appears to be the console of choice.

With so much to take in, there are some handy tips you should read up on before diving into the system.

Gaming online with your friends is one of the best aspects of the new consoles.

One aspect that a lot of players are trying to figure out is the game sharing feature within the PS5.

Here's how! 



The process of setting up and actually using game sharing is a lot simpler than it was on the PS4.

This comes as a sigh of relief to many, as it was tricky to figure out before.

Now, players will only have to follow a few simple steps. 

This feature is now called 'Console Sharing and Offline Play' and it will allow your friends to have access to your entire collection of games.

Doing this should reward you with friend of the year for sure!

Once again you are going to want to head over to your console's settings tab.

This can be found within the home screen of your console, and it will be located at the top right of the screen! 

Then, you are going to want to head over to the 'Users and Accounts' option.

This will prompt you with a screen detailing all of the ins and outs of this setting, as well if it is currently enabled on your console.

Go ahead and enable it and there you go!

Users will have access to all your games on the PS5 no matter the profile.
