    Not sure if this is posted before but yea
    If you want to share downloads with friends or your selling gameshes and you don't want them to sign in with your account every time to use it, you have to make their PS4 the primary system for your account. If you don't know how to do this, follow these steps:

    1. Login with your account on your family/friend's PS4
    2. Go to the "Settings" tab
    3. Go to "PSN"
    4. Click on "Activate as Your Primary PS4"
    5. Click "Activate"

    Now they should be able to use your downloads on their PS4. They don't have to login to your account to play your games or use your PS Plus and you could do this vice versa. You can still use your downloads without being primary if your signed into the account that has the downloads

    yes. Smile you leave there system as your primary so they could use all your downloads and you could still use your downloads on your own system. you do the same with your system using there account as primary so you could use his downloads and he could use his ones too

    To bad you can only have 1 ps4 as primary. So you can "not" gameshare because if you let a friend set your accoutn as primary that means you have to first make yours NOT. Then your account will not work on your own ps4.

    Sorry to break everyeones heart but you can infact "not" gameshare on ps4.

    you can gameshare. it aint the same as ps3 but you can. if you make the buyers ps4 as primary then you can still use your downloads on your ps4 without making it primary as long as your signed into your account. the buyer can play the games on any account this means your family members or different accounts on your ps4 won't be able to play your downloads, only you can. If you want then try it Smile remove primary from your account then go into a downloaded game, it will still work.
