Are you a PlayStation lover who's eager to play PS5 games but doesn't have a PS5 console? Then read on to learn how you can do it.

Sharing games has always been easier on PCs, laptops, and other non-gaming-oriented devices, but that's not the case with digital games that you play on console gaming platforms like PlayStation and others.

Gratefully, Sony offers for this purpose a feature called Share Play, which allows you to give and take PS games across all PS models.

By making use of this function, you can play or share your PS game library with friends and family members who are also still using their PS4.

Note: In order to use the Share Play feature, both the donor and receiver need to have a PlayStation Plus subscription and a PlayStation Network (PSN) account.

  • Log in to your PlayStation Plus account on your friend’s PlayStation.
  • After logging in, head to the console’s settings.
  • Click on the option called Account Management.
  • Choose Activate as Your Primary PS4.
  • Confirm Activate if you’re ready to share your games with your friends.
  • The process of Gameshare will begin, and once it's completed, the other PS user will now have full access to your PS4 library.
