Hello I just got on Playstation 4 and my NBA 2K16 was opened I had closed it to play Black Ops 3 and now NBA 2K16 is completely removed from my title screen so I did some research and apparently Playstation is trying to PATCH gamesharing completely and I heard from a few people gamesharing can get you banned now.

EDIT : I redownloaded all the games off my friends account and they work now. Not sure what happened

I had 2K16 and Madden 16 from my friend and they were both removed of the title screen and I didn't delete them so they must be trying something.

One YouTuber said it is up to the game developers. So for example that means the owners of 2K don't want their game to be allowed in the gamesharing scene, as well as Madden.

I had gameshared Star Wars off my friend and it is still there so I'm not sure what is going on .

I logged onto my friends account and I'm currently re downloading NBA 2K16 I will update this saying if it works or not.
The person you got it from most likely refunded the game or something. There is nothing to patch. It's a legitimate feature they offer and there is no solid way for them to tell who is doing it just for games. As far as they are aware you have a second house/family somewhere and you gameshare with them which is what its for iirc

I just redownloaded it and it works fine, but do you have any idea why it was removed ?
I gameshare off my friend he lives like 2 houses away and he also lost some of my games.

I buy all the games I like and my buddy buys ones he likes. That way if this happens it reverts. I have bought about ten to his five so no real loss if this happens.

If this is true then I am sure a lot of people will be unhappy. I know a few of my friends gameshare all the time and this would royally piss them off.
