EA has blocked PS4's SharePlay feature for those playing PS4.

GameSpot reports that those trying to stream the game from a friend's console are greeted by a message reading "viewing the game screen that the host is currently playing is not allowed due to content restrictions in your country or region".

It's the first EA title to introduce SharePlay restrictions, but far from the first game.

In fact, it becomes the 14th title, joining the likes of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Minecraft, Wolfenstein: The New Order, Tomb Raider, Metro Redux, Hotline Miami and Thief in blocking Sony's streaming service.

Sony confirmed earlier this month that publishers have the option of blocking SharePlay on a title-by-title basis.

UPDATE: EA's told MCV that FIFA 15 did not block SharePlay. Instead there was a wider problem with the SharePlay service that Sony has now fixed.
