The PS4’s SharePlay feature has met another road bump as Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare absolutely does not work with it. Turns out, this isn’t a bug, either.
The latest iteration of the PS4 firmware, codenamed Masamune, promised a world where gamers could share games with their friends without even leaving their homes. Turns out the highly anticipated Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is not amongst those.
Sony has had a rocky road so far ever since it updated their multi-million selling PS4 to firmware 2.0, and the introduction of shareplay. Their online service PSN has had quite some downtime and performance has been buggy overall, but now, the release of the latest Call of Duty marks the first game that does not work at all with it.
What SharePlay does is allow users to give up control and let someone else on their friend’s list take a turn from their own PS4 – like couch playing, but over the Internet. In the case of Call of Duty, though, the game marks all footage as censored, and this is exactly what Activision intended. As Sony explained to GameSpot, “Share Play is a system level feature enabled by System Software Update 2.0 making it available for all PS4 titles, however the option is available to developers to disable the feature according to what they feel will best benefit the consumer experience.”
