More controllers with so little number of games to support them. I'm talking to you in particular, third party.

WHY?!! why reduce the total amount of players? it wont hurt to enable 8... like all your consoles SONY!

PS: PS1 and PS2 can reach 8 players with 2 multitaps connected, and i know ps3 supports only 7 =P

Wait, I has a confuze, the PS4 will reduce the number of supported controllers to 4?  Why?

8 controllers isn't a necessity but it's nice to know it's there. it's not hard to achieve...

This is magnificent, I can use 2 controllers per limb! So excited, stupid PS4 only lets me use one per limb :(. Lol @ 8 controllers and the single game that will utilize the option to use 8.

Crazily excited for the Xbox One tweaks, although my country is not listed, I'd be getting the console sometime in 2014, and Chris you forgot the sticker that comes with the box :D

I liked Heavy Rain, because it was story oriented, and the concept was beautiful, if the game was that bad in story, a lot people would have never played it at the first place.

PS4 is so gonna fail!!! only 4 controller while the almighty Xbone can hanlde UP TO 8! because since every game developpers only make coop for up to 2 person anymore, haveing 8 controllers is SO USEFUL!

lol the xbox uhh, will fail, i give it 1 year for the price to be droped. Who ever makes the best multiplayer experience is where im goin to. PS4 so far is the one that is getting my attention, im willing to wait another year till purchasing my new console, im saving for a 3d tv at the moment but seriously considering getting a good projector.

MS tried to screw gamers...thats why I'm getting a PS4.  The only flip floppers between me and Microsoft is Microsoft.

So Sony is not only producing a console that is hardly an upgrade from the PS3, but now they are actually reducing features from the previous generation.  The truth is finally coming out!...not surprised...when will Sony get dedicated servers again????

4 controllers is good enough! Can anyone tell me a game they played where they used all 7 controllers?! I'm thinking maybe Fifa would be good with a lot of people but what else? Let me know

@bu3aDeL_Maz How many times have you had 7 or 8 players on one console? It's a non-issue really.

@Ghostdog201 Because you should hold on to the pre-order or wait until patch on that matter arrive.

@kakisgr guess you've never played FIFA with 7 other friends on the same TV

@Tevenx3 games like FIFA don't split the screen for multiplayer like fps games.

@groowagon Most likely only useful for sports games. SPORTS! TV! XBOX! SPORTS!!! DID WE MENTION TV?!?!?!?! SPORTS!!!!!!!!!

@Darkefka FIFA 8 players is awesome. play something other than an FPS lonely gamer

@pongley It's because it considers Smartglass a controller maybe? They mentioned games like card games, party games, etc, using more controllers & Smartglass enabled phones as controllers.

@UNCStriker88 If the PS4 is hardly an upgrade from the PS3, what does that say about the weaker-specs XOne?

Seriously do you intend to get 7 extra controllers for the Xbox one ? 4 controllers is more than enough any more the games will suffer from spit screen issues

@joshhi @UNCStriker88 its all the other features that make the difference!  i think as purely gaming systems, they are essentially equivalent, nothing exciting to talk about there...

@joshhi then take a look at the games, again Microsoft is getting all these "exclusives" that I missed out on with the PS3, people act like its nothing but it will make a difference when its the one game you want, or when you don't want to have to wait for DLC
