    PS4′s digital library lets you play games anywhere



    Sony has spoken about accessing your PS4 games on any machine, and how PlayStation 4′s ability to ‘play as you download’ makes, “a digital [game] library a practical option in the real world”.


    Speaking at Develop, Neil Brown, Sony’s R&D senior team leader, outlined the process that lets you access your games on other machines at other people’s houses:


    “You can visit your friends house you can log into your account and play any game from your digital library, which is good. But how useful is that if it takes half a day to download the game you want to play? With Play As You Download you get much quicker access to at least the first section of the game so you can start playing quicker. So this makes a digital library a practical option in the real world.”
    He also explained more about how the same system means you’ll never have to wait for games to install. Instead you can play instantly but still benefit from the faster loading and streaming from PS4′s hard drive thanks to more background processes:


    “A similar system also works on Blu-ray, chunks are automatically copied to the hard drive in the background. This means that after the first few minutes your game can rely on having faster read speeds from the hard drive. Which provides a better experience for players, and this is a completely background process for the player. They don’t have to wait for anything to install before playing the game. The game will launch as soon as the disk has been put in the drive.”

    Does this mean they are getting rid of the amount of consoles you can have your account active on

    You can have your account active on an unlimited amount of consoles but the account's games/downloads can only be played while signed onto that account.

    From what I understood you will have a "Home" PS4 that will act as the main one, the other consoles will be able to play your games as long as they are logged in
    Not really sure though
