Xbox One to support up to eight controllers


Xbox One will support up to eight controllers at once, according to an official description.

In addition to the above, it's also been revealed that the controller will have a wireless range of 30ft.

It's yet to be revealed how many controllers the PS4 can support, either way though, to have eight in one room you'll either need a lot of friends with a new next gen console, or a lot of money to buy all of these spare controllers.

Bit pointless when local multiplyer is not supported by so many games these days.

Yeah seems a strange thing to have as you dont get games like Micro Machines and Bomberman any more all of it is done online.

One of the biggest games in the world still uses it so it is a good move.

One game though, who in their right mind is going to spend £350 on additional controllers for one game?

This got me interested. I imagine EIGHT people playing on a single screen simultaneously. Seriously? What are they going to play? FIFA on one screen? NBA? Split screen Halo Xbox One (actually I don't want to imagine that). 4 players is enough.

8 player possibilities - Micro Machines/Mashed, International Track & Field, Bomberman, Fusion Frenzy etc. Also, me and friends used to do 6 player ISS Evo back on the old PS2 (all on the same team). We always tried to win the World Cup as England, never did manage it...

PS3 only supports 7 controllers, so FIFA 13 only handles up to 7 controllers current gen.
