PS4â€²s party chat feature will not be blocked behind a PS Plus pay-wall, and friends lists can hold 2,000 people. Thatâ€™s a lot of friends.
Sonyâ€™s PlayStation Access show confirmed that PS4 has free party chat that doesnâ€™t require a PS Plus subscription to use, and that friends lists are capped at 2,000 people. Xbox One will only have 1000. Given its recent policy reversals, including the opening of the Xbox One's online store allowing independent developers to self publish games, Microsoft may be forced to change its rules once again if it wants to stop fans from defecting to the PS4.The console will not support DualShock 3 but it will work with PS Move. Your current PSN avatar and username will also transfer over to PS4 as well.
Unlike Microsoft, which requires Xbox 360 and future Xbox One owners to sign up to Xbox Live Gold, Sony will provide free access to core services, as well as apps like Netflix and Hulu. Online multiplayer will still require a PlayStation Plus subscription, but it will not apply to free-to-play games, which is another thing that Microsoft charges for.
