Console Sharing and Offline Play
The concept of console sharing is fairly simple. If a user has an Xbox One and an older PS4, they can connect their wireless mouse to the PS4 and play their games online with other users connected to their system.
The system recognizes the mouse as a keyboard and uses it to enter commands into the game. This is great for those who have difficulty using a controller because it allows them to play more comfortably.
However, if you do not have wireless access, you can still connect your console to your computer and use a wired mouse instead of a wireless one.
In this case, you need to find an adapter that lets you feed your wires through the back of your computer. You can pick up the USB-C cable from Amazon for $9.99 (save $2).
It supports two USB connections simultaneously, so if you have multiple consoles hooked up at once, it’s possible for two people to be on at once with one cable plugged in between their consoles and yours instead of one keyboard/mouse per console in use.
How to Use Console Sharing and Offline Play?
Console Sharing and Offline Play allow a user to grant access to their entire library of games to anyone using the same console, even if that particular system is currently offline.
Public libraries and bookstores are excellent sources of knowledge. The internet is a great medium for information, whether it’s free or paid. It’s the nature of the beast of information to spread like a virus, spreading beyond the bounds of our physical confines. We have to choose what we want to share and how we want to share it because sharing can be as much about value as it is about effectiveness.
