      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

Xbone supports up to 8 controllers

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?

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.

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.

Cool but, sadly mine only needs 1 controller. None of my 35 and over friends come over to play games.

Hard to believe that no one wants to play video games with a nice guy such as yourself.

XB1 wins the generationg -- confirmed! 8 > 4!

I thought there was a thread here a few days ago that said PS4 already won because you can plug in headphones to their controllers...
