Sony has released a comprehensive PS4 FAQ addressing many of the questions PlayStation fans have about game sharing and related topics.
As was revealed at E3 2013, there are no restrictions in place on sharing physical PS4 games but digital downloads are treated a bit differently to how they currently work on PS3. Users can activate one PS4 as their primary console which allows anyone using that system to freely access any items the primary owner has purchased and downloaded from the PlayStation Store, even if they’re not logged into a PSN account. Benefits associated with the primary owner’s PlayStation Plus subscription, such as online multiplayer access, can also be enjoyed by everyone using that person’s console.
Users can also access any purchased items and PlayStation Plus benefits associated with their account on other PS4s provided they are logged into their PSN account on that system. Up to two systems can be used concurrently meaning that you don’t have to worry about your PS4 being switched off when you’re logged into a secondary console.
Meanwhile, the FAQ also confirms that the Friends limit on PS4 is 2000 at launch – 20 times what it currently is on PS3.
