Sony really is trying to one-up the Xbox One with the PS4 in just about every way imaginable (whether it is achieving this is another matter). It even extends to friends lists.
Microsoft has previously advised that you’ll be able to keep 1,000 friends in your list on the Xbox One, maximum. Well, Hollie Bennett from Access PlayStation has just revealed that the friends list on your PS4 could be up to double that – a maximum of 2,000 friends. Really I think that once you get up around 1,000 friends the argument becomes academic, but whatever…
Hollie also confirmed the following:
- Party chat exists on the Playstation 4 and it is free (ie you don’t need a PS+ subscription).
- Your current DualShock 3 PS3 controllers will not work with the PS4. Your current PS Move will work though.
- You will be able to swap out the standard Playstation 4 hard-drive (500GB) for something else.
- Your existing PSN username and avatar will carry over to the PS4.
