Playsation Share

Unread post by Lanarchy » Wed Dec 31, 2014 10:10 am

TL:DR - Someone can 'share' a game to another player who doesn't have to own the game for upto an hour


Bill and I tried this last night, it was sweet. You have the ability to 'hand over' the controller and let the other person take charge. Or the ability to 'add a controller' and play local multiplayer.

I handed him the controller and he played my GTA5 streaming from my console to his at his house. He said the quality was great and barely any lag at all.

Then we played Madden and I added a controller so he became player 2 and played that way too.

At the end of the hour, it unplugs their controller, pauses the game, and you can immediately reshare again and pick up where you left off. I'm sure the hour time limit is just to keep me form sharing a game then leaving the house.

A+++++++, 11/10, would stream again

That's pretty cool. It lets you do voice chat concurrently I imagine?

Yes, because you're in a party.

And I think that PS3/4 let's you use any bluetooth device for comms. Sounds neat, again. I think the idea in the near future is to be able to use any device as the client (phone, PC, PS3, Vita).

As a remote client yea. Like the PS vita. But you'll still have to own the base hardware for whatever you're playing. I can't wait for that kinda stuff
