Play your character in friends PS4

Tue Oct 25, 2016 11:04 am

Can you play your character in a friends PS4? I tried to login to my PSN on my friends PS4 and that worked well but when I join a local coop my saved characters don't show up in my friends device.

Is there a way to do this? Local play is awesome if you can have your already upgraded characters ready :/

Thanks in advance

Upload your save to the PS cloud before you leave home, download it onto their ps4. Should work, I think...

Edit: I'm assuming you have PS+. If not, put your save onto a USB before you leave home and take that.

How do you upload to the cloud and then download? Also how do you save on USB?

IAm assuming cloud upload would then update my home PS as well? Or I need to download cloud when iam back?

I do have ps+

No problems. Sorry I wasn't specific enough, I'm glad you worked it out.

Good thing that you guys were able to figure this out by yourselves.

Just in case that somebody has the same problem in the future, here's how to do this:
1) Go to the settings of PS4
2) Select saved data management
3) Open saved data in system storage
4) Choose the upload to online storage / copy to USB storage device option
5) Choose the save file that you want to copy
6) On your friend's PS4 you can access your save file from saved data management but instead of copying the save file, just move it to the system storage from the cloud / USB.
