Video: PS4 Has 2000 Friend Limit, PlayStation 4 Party Chat Free to All 400°
83w ago - Today a new PlayStation Q&A video (below) has surfaced from Sony confirming that Party Chat will be available on the PS4 without PS Plus and that the friends list can hold up to 2000 friends.

To quote: "Sony has confirmed that you won't need a PS Plus subscription to make use of the PlayStation 4's party chat functionality.

In a new Q&A video, it's been revealed that the new party chat feature will be available to everyone, even if they opt not to subscribe to PlayStation Plus.

At the moment, a PlayStation Plus subscription is needed to the online multiplayer of most titles, though services like Netflix, party chat, and free-to-play games like DC Universe Online will be available without it.




Additionally, the video also confirms that PlayStation 4 friends lists will be capped at 2,000 people, DualShock 3 controllers won't work with the PS4 while the PlayStation Move will, and your PSN avatar and username will carry over to PlayStation 4 along with a host of privacy options.

One of the biggest concerns fans have raised about the PlayStation 4 is just how many features will be accessible without owning a PS Plus account."

To quote from Eurogamer.net (linked above): "Cross-game voice chat is not possible on the PlayStation 3 because of memory restrictions, Sony has revealed.

The PS3's RAM is gobbled up by the games it runs, which prevents the much-desired feature from being implemented, Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida told Eurogamer.

"Once a game gets RAM we never give it back," he said. "It's not possible to retrofit something like that after the fact."

Vita has 512MB of RAM and 128MB of V-RAM, compared to the PS3's 256MB of system RAM and 256MB of video RAM. This enables features such as cross-game voice chat to run in the background while games are being played.

On the PS3, however, things are different. "The game has to use its own memory to do [in-game voice chat].

There's always voice chat in the game. But it's a part of a game feature. It's not a part of an OS feature. That's the reason...
