Gone are the days where the console required physical disks to play games and gamers had to pay a hefty price to own them. Nowadays you can easily get it on a digital store and share it with your friends. Game sharing feature was something we witnessed in the PS4 era, but it wasn’t as refined as Sony’s fifth-generation console, Playstation 5. Unlike PS4, you can share your entire library of digital games with your friends and family. However, for this to work, they have to own a PS5 as well.
It is one of the best ways to experience games that you missed and your friend and family members own. Another thing that makes “Console sharing and offline play” stands out is that it doesn’t require the other party’s console to be online and will let you have access to the entire library of owned digital games.
