Using one PlayStation Plus membership on two consoles

One of the most disappointing revelations during the Sony’s 2013 E3 press conference was the confirmation of paying for online multiplayer. I didn’t want to pay for online multiplayer but in the end I decided $49.99 for online player along with the offerings of PlayStation Plus was worth it.

My brother and I were all set to activate our own PlayStation Plus memberships when I recalled a few salient points made by Sony:

  • If you join PlayStation®Plus, benefits such as online multiplayer features that come with that membership can be enjoyed by users who share your PS4™ system. You do not have to log in to the system for other users to enjoy these benefits.
  • Games you purchase can be downloaded and played on any PS4™ system if you sign in to PSN. There is no limit on the number of systems you can use. * Only you can start games that you download.
