Microsoft has updated Xbox One controller's product page to reveal that its soon-to-be-released next-gen console will be able to connect to eight wireless controllers simultaneously.
In response, Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida tweeted that PlayStation 4 supports only four simultaneously connected controllers.
Ironically, this is the opposite of current-gen situation where PlayStation 3 supports seven concurrent controllers while Xbox 360 supports 4 only.
Save for bragging rights, it is really hard to think of games that'd take advantage of 8-players local play. Bomberman and Super Mario Party perhaps? In fact, PlayStation 3 already supports 7 controllers and we can't think of any game that took advantage of that.
