If he isn't playing on your console, then he has to be signed into PSN on your account to play.

you should test it out, ive had to make a new account because this account that im using to post on here is a sub account, this account (jon1234)  has alot of games ive bought over several years, and my new account is not connected to this account in any way,

 

however, i put this account on my ps4 and downloaded soundshapes and played it using the new account

 

when i set up the accounts on my ps4 i added jon1234 to the users, i set it up as the primary, downloaded sound shapes opened it and switched over to my new account, which i then set as the primary account and i was able to play soundshapes :smileyhappy:

 

its the past my bed time and maybe this doesnt make sense, i hope it does but try it out

Log into your account on ps4 from which xyz play and make it a home console for "abc" account. This way he can access "abc" account's content on his xyz. Also, abc will get access to his own content as long as abc is signed into his own account from his own  console.
