Well can you draw pictures on the PS4?

I just got a call from the MOD team. They want you to stop derailing the thread. 

They also want you to get a grill cheese sandwich for cycycychris, a roast beef sandwich with a club soda for Pemalite, and a BLT with extra mayonnaise and Mountain Dew with doritos on the side for Ryuu. 

Think you can do all that?

Oh please, I do that for Ryuu every Saturday night for no reason!

Also, yay for digital game sharing! :D

I would call it a cool feature. Though if playing on a non-primary account counts their hours I will not stand for it! The last thing I need is someone else polluting my playtime hours. I need to keep track of that!

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

Same lmao idk why i love keeping track of my play time. Its literally a disease now i need it on every console.

 

The one on 3DS started everything. Idk why Ninty kept making it worst after that but wathever.

 

Great feature tho. Still curious about the special stuff 



i feel it should also be noted that a Nintendo Switch Online membership is not needed to use this feature. Maybe its implied, but might as well make it abundantly clear.



this is great as I just got another switch for my kids

Cool feature for those who want it. Hopefully Nintendo continues to implement more features moving forward.



One thing I'm confused about. If I gave my friend my account details for her switch to play my games, could I play say, cities Skylines while she played final fantasy? Or would her game pause if I started playing any game on my own switch?



Cool feature but too bad there's no one I trust to use it with.



Sounds cool and while at first it looks like you could only be playing a game on one switch at a time, keep in mind your primary console doesn't need to be online, fire up breath of the wild in airplane mode on primary switch and someone else could use your account to be playing rocket league online for example



Why not check me out on youtube and help me on the way to 2k subs over at www.youtube.com/stormcloudlive

If it is like PS4, then your friend could play your game on her console with your account, while you play on your primary console with another account. As soon as you tried to log onto your account, it would kick her offline, and out of the game.

It is not really game sharing, it is a system to allow you to play your games anywhere. You have to give your account info to your friend and stay off your account while they play.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.
