In my opinion Sony has nailed it again with this new upgrade for system update 2.0 for the PS4 that it’s called Share play, in the words of Sony:
- Share Screen – Share your screen with a friend, allowing them to spectate. This is ideal for PS4 owners that want to watch their friends play a game and provide helpful tips. PlayStation Plus is not required to use this.
- Hand over my controller – Pass your controller to a friend, virtually, and watch them play. Your friend does not need to own, or even download the game, in order to use this feature. This is perfect for introducing your friends to new games. The host will need to be a PlayStation Plus member, but the guest does not.
- Hand over another controller – If a game supports local multiplayer, you can have your friend join as player two. Again, the visitor does not need to own, or download the game in order to use this feature. Both players will need PlayStation Plus to use this feature.
So frikkin cool, the thing that love the most is the capacity to play multiplayer even when you don´t own the game, that’s great and also that thing to pass a control, it’s like the old times when you played with the rich kid of the neighbourhood and yo where like: -one life you and one me-….(nostalgic right)
Here is the presentation video and let’s see how it goes for PS4 with this feature and also the response from X1
