The PlayStation 4 is getting two enhancements to its social profile when the system arrives later this year. If you ever became upset at the idea of no party-chat or a friends list cap, then good news for you.
In a new PlayStation Access video produced by Sony’s European team, the company answers ten new questions from fans. Not only will the PlayStation 4 offer party chat, but Sony has confirmed that it will still offer free-to-play games, and media services like Netflix will not be behind the PlayStation Plus paywall unlike the Xbox 360.
As was quietly revealed at E3, multiplayer gaming will now be subscription based, just like on Xbox Live. Additionally, both Microsoft and Sony are upping the friend list size in the next generation. Sony’s video confirms 2,000 friends, while Microsoft offers up to only 1,000 on the Xbox One.
