Is it possible have multiple accounts on Playstation Plus and Xbox Live Gold?
Same set of questions, but now for Xbox One. Is it possible?

PS4 works the same way. You can share games with one other PS4. Doing it with a friend.

Wait, gamesharing works on PS4? Why don't people talk about it more then? Like, you can both play at the same time?

That's the same idea behind Xbone's system... basically making your friend's console your 'home' and vice versa... but my question is: Can games be played simultaneously on both consoles in the PS4 scenario?

So let's say I buy the digital version of Tekken 7. Can that be played simultaneously on two PS4s?

Wow. That's awesome. Then what's the incentive for buying the physical copy of the game since two people can't play that simultaneously. The only thing that I can think of is that a physical copy can be traded in or sold in the resale market at a later point in time.

From your experience, does the PSN and Xbox Live stores have as many sales on videogames as the B&M stores like BB/Amazon? Is it generally cheaper to buy from the retail stores or buy from the digital app stores?spawn582 wrote: ↑ You nailed it.

However, if you are gamesharing, you're basically paying half price since two of you split the costs.
Yes, digital games and the subs from both Xbox One and PS4 can be shared. Each player gets their own trophies and gamerscore.
There may be certain exceptions. The only one I've come across so far after doing this since the start of this gen was game trials. You needed to be logged in order to play them.

It seems like we're talking about the similarities between PSN and Xbox Live Gold. What are the differences in terms of benefits between the two services when used with multiple consoles?
How do I share games with someone I know if we are both building our own digital libraries of games on both PSN and Xbox Live Gold?

Thanks for the explanation. Are the online saves a problem with Xbox Live Gold as well? In practice, is that limitation a big issue if only one user have PS+?supremekai wrote: ↑ There's also no Tax on PSN.
The home console can play the game offline, while the other account needs to be online.
i.e. your friend has your account on his PS4 as primary. He can play all your games (on his account) etc while your account is offline (or if the internet goes out). While you sign into your account and remain signed in/online you can play any of your games. and vise versa.
If only one user has PS+, Only the PS+ user can use online saves. the non PS+ user won't be able to upload their saves to the PS+ cloud save

I don't have a Xbox so don't know about that. Though I think free xbox live users get cloud saves.
