    Jim Ryan: PS4 can login to multiple accounts at once

    PS3 had required the devs to include this feature in their game, now it is standard.

    During an “Ask me anything” with GamerNo, a Norwegian website SCEE Boss Jim Ryan has revealed that gamers can log into multiple accounts on the PlayStation 4, much like they can on the Xbox 360.

    “Since the reveal of the PS4 I have been wondering if it will be able to have two or more profiles logged in at the same time like the Xbox 360 is. We really want to play on a Playstation, but have felt that we had to prioritse the 360 this generation because of this feature. I hope it is not the case this time around.[...]

    Good morning Iselin, really glad to hear that you are looking forward to our launch. I have some good news for you – up to four profiles can be signed in on one console on PS4. Thanks for your question, Jim”

    Mainly so people can earn trophies under their own account rather than the rewards being lost to a 'guest' account.

    Not at the system level.
    You could only do it once you were in a game, providing that game was coded with that functionality.
    Most PS3 games incorporate it these days though so people don't tend to notice.

    Hopeful it will be implemented so that you can store the Login and Password if you want for the multiple profiles so you don't have to enter a password for the ones other than the primary account. I want to select the user when I get in by an Avatar or something like that. This will make it a lot easier dealing with my son (11yrs old) who will start playing my games and selecting continue which really F's up games with a story. Trying to get him to start his own game save is about as hard as getting him to do his homework without being told 3 times.

    Well really the wife has to say it about 20 times, I (the enforcer) only have to yell at him 3 times. If it goes past three, he knows I'll start taking privileges away, and I don't fold.

    2hrs for 6 sentences sounds about right for my Dyslexic little 11 yr old angel w/ horns.

    Something I've been hoping to see is saved games linked to accounts. So if I play and save a game, when my g/f plays a game, she doesn't even see my save file. This would stop the accidental overwrite of other files. Playing GTA V has me wishing for this even more! That way when I log in and start playing it continues with my story mode and not hers if she has played it more recently.
