Question about PS Plus games across same system accounts

4 replies 132 views Edited Oct 20, 2012
I just got a trial for PS Plus and so far I'm very impressed by there sheer amount of content available. However when my roommate went to play infamous 2 he had to do so on my account as he didn't see the option to when he logged in through his user account on the same system. Are the free games locked to user accounts linked to my PSN account or is there a way to access them from other local user accounts on my PS3?

Apparently the free games are locked to your user account. I had thought that any other user on that same system would be able to access the games, but I guess you have proven that is not the case...

I'lll look into this. from what I understand, you can access games on any account, regardless of who has the Plus. but perhaps certain games might be set up different. I'm going to ask our QA team to review this. I'll get back to you.

All games and content work on any user account, including trials however for trials you need to first launch them at least once on the Plus acct and then they work on other accounts. You can't start a trial on any other account.
