The feature arrives as part of PS4’s v2.0 firmware is released tomorrow. It allows owners to transfer control of their games to friends over the internet, and as it relies on streaming tech the share-ee need not own a copy of the game.

Other v2.00 firmware features include the introduction of folders, YouTube sharing, themes and a USB music player.
