The Xbox One will allow plenty of friends to have a good time on one system when it releases.
Microsoft revealed on its product page for the controller that up to eight controllers can hook to one system at once. Meanwhile, Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida tweeted that four controllers can be used on the PS4 at once.
While this may not be a big deal for many, local eight-player games could be great for parties or college rooms. How many games will support local eight-player multiplayer will remain to be seen.
