My brother and I got a PS4. we created two separate profiles and found out that for online gaming, PS plus is required.

We can buy a PS Plus subscription for a year but not sure if that subscription will be for both of us? Both accounts have their own PSN accounts.

Can I also transfer a profile from one PSN account to another one?

Yes, as long as the account being used to redeem the subscription code is set as primary on PS4 settings.


No. Every local profile on the system requires its own subscription in order to play online.

    This is not true. The other answer is correct. I am the primary account in my PS4 and it allows all other users to access online features, regardless of whether they have subscriptions or not.
