Sorry, but my big screen is made for only one screen. I don't do any of that split screen shit. But imagine a game that's not a party game where 8 people shared the screen controlling different aspects of a ship or Jaeger or something similar. That would be awesome, which is probably why it won't happen.

Good for sports games, and that's basically it. Maybe games like Scene It, etc. But cool that the option is there.

Cool I guess. PS3 supported 7 controllers right? Did any game take advantage of that?

Just had a thought... If you ever wanted to do this it would involve $480 worth of controllers!

Bomberman took advantage of 7 players on the PS3. Outside of that no idea.

I think only a few sports titles. NBA rings a bell.

PS4 only supports four controllers though. Xbox One exclusive advertisement incoming!

I believe I read that GTA V will have a gang rape mode which will support all 8 controllers.

Will there be subtitles? Indian accents are hard to understand...

Kind of a useless feature but I guess it'll be cool for party games.

Maybe this feature has more to do with xbone recognizing the player based on controller profile rather than actually being utilized.

First thing that popped in my head is how cool that would make the WWE games at a party.

Not that it matters all that much, but according to articles today on both IGN and Joystiq the PS4 supports 4 controllers. PS3 supported 7.

I always thought 6-8 players would be fun for a local hack & slash game. Since 4 players are already sharing the screen, adding 2-4 more players could be quite fun. And with HD graphics and more power I was a little disappointed it seemed like no one tried to do it this gen.
