PS4's upcoming game sharing feature Share Play will restrict remote players to 60 minute sessions, it's been revealed.

The time limit was confirmed to GameSpot following an earlier report on French website Gameblog, although there's apparently no limit on the number of times you can use Share Play, meaning remote players should theoretically be able to reconnect and jump straight back in.

So why is there a limit in the first place? Sony hasn't said, but we've contacted them to try and find out more information.

Share Play was announced earlier this week and forms a major part of PS4 system update 2.0. The feature is essentially a modification of Sony's existing Remote Play technology, allowing other users to stream a game they don't own from your console, or join your game remotely.

Every PS4 title that uses a DualShock 4 will be compatible with the service.

Share Play is expected to arrive this autumn.
