    Hi,

    I have a ps4 and want to share it with my son. Question is can my son play all of my installed games whether they were digitally installed on installed by disc? Also, could we be friends together?

    Eventually he will get his own console so this will be temporary.

    Thx.

    No issue with this on a single console - even online play will be allowed for all users on this console as long as one account has PSN Plus (and has this console set at their primary PS4).


    When you come to get him his own console, in theory you can share a PSN Plus subscription between both consoles, by making "his" PS4 your primary PS4, but then manually logging into PSN on "your" console.

    Okay thanks. What about friends, can we add each other on the two id's?

    Yep, you can add any accounts on your own console or another as a friend.
    I've done this with my niece, I don't think there's a need to add them as a friend on the same console but we did that anyway just in case some games use the friends list to manage multiplayer.
