When it comes to Party Chat, Xbox One and PS4 are Even-Steven


With less than a month before Microsoft and Sony’s next-gen consoles launch, the two companies continue to make the case for their systems. There is one area where the two consoles will share something in common: party chat for up to eight players. Both Sony and Microsoft have confirmed that this feature will be available at launch.

Sony’s plans regarding party chat came to light earlier this week through a Killzone: Shadow Fall Q&A (via CVG), with Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman saying, "Party Voice Chat will support up to 8 players on PS4, like PS Vita."

Microsoft responded in kind a few days later by responding to a Game Informer inquiry about their own party chat plans. A Microsoft spokesperson stated, "At launch, up to eight people will be able to join a Party Chat at a time on Xbox One."

PS3 does not feature a party chat option, while Xbox 360 currently supports up to eight players for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Microsoft’s statement to Game Informer did not rule out the possibility of increasing party sizes in the future.
