Xbox One Party Chat will support 8 users at launch Microsoft has confirmed that 8 users can use Party Chat on Xbox One at launch.
Allowing 8 users to join a Party Chat matches the limit of the Xbox 360 and that of the PlayStation 4 (PS4) for voice chat, announced earlier this week by Sony.

"At launch, up to eight people will be able to join a Party Chat at a time on Xbox One," a Microsoft representative told Game Informer.

Xbox One launches in selected markets around the world from November 22, priced at $499 in the United States and 499 in the European Union (429 in the UK).

And another piece of the proverbial puzzle of this nonsense waste of money falls into place.

Proven once again..............XBox One simply differs from the last model by insignificant and minuscule changes that most won't give a sh*t about like "sharing" and this crap "Party Chat".

No performance increase with games on either PS4 or XBox One, no gaming graphics increase and nothing is "better" and only "sharing" is enhanced.............which most will disregard.

While I am all about having a console for the occasional game that mandates having one (Like Sony Resistance, GOW, etc), REAL GAMERS use a PC! Better graphics, less crashes (on a system that actually works), faster loads/saves, more frames per second....etc, etc, etc, etc, etc.

Real gamers (lol), just play games on whatever platform it may be. Besides, its a console, it would cost any company a arm and a leg to have high end hardware with a outrages price tag. Its the consumer who wants simplicity and convenience, so you can be there and throw insults all you want, but consoles sales.
