PlayStation 4 Supports Up to Four Controllers

Posted on September 4, 2013 AT 04:35am

SCE Worldwide Studios head Shuhei Yoshida has confirmed that the PlayStation 4 will support up to four controllers, three less than the PlayStation 3.

Yoshida announced the figure on Twitter, but didn’t specify a reason for the reduction. The obvious reason is that it’s just not worth supporting more than four as very few games actually take advantage of four+ controllers.

Microsoft announced earlier this week that the Xbox One will support up to eight controllers.
