After reporting that PlayStation 4’s party chat will support up to 8 people, Game Informer reached out to Microsoft to see how their quota would stack up against it.
It has now been confirmed that “At launch, up to eight people will be able to join a Party Chat at a time on Xbox One”, by a Microsoft spokesperson. This limit mirrors that of the current limit for the Xbox 360, and for the PS4.
Xbox One will initially launch in 13 markets worldwide on November 22nd, for $499.99.
What do you think? Are you surprised the limit hasn’t been raised from the current 8 player limit on Xbox 360? Let us know!
