PS4: with the new update it will be possible to create parties of 16 players

PS5: The Authors of Far Lone Sails Comment on the Technical Specifications

As we told you yesterday, the PlayStation 4 update 7.00 will arrive this week, which unfortunately will take away some features of the console, such as compatibility with Facebook functions, but will provide PS4 with other interesting features.

The main one is the possibility to create parties up to 16 players, thus doubling the capacity compared to before. This change had already been introduced in June with the PlayStation Preview Program, and evidently the tests went well and Sony decided to unlock this feature for all users.

So if you have tons of friends to play with, now it’s better to make things together on PS4. And if you lose parts of the conversation in the casino, the new chat transcript can convert the entries into text, to be shown on a second screen.

Among the other features of the update, support for Remote Play also for Android devices, as long as they mount version 5.0 or higher of the operating system, and the possibility of using the DualShock 4 on practically all mobile devices.

As said instead, Sony has interrupted its collaboration with Facebook and therefore it will no longer be possible to share states, images, trophies, and videos on Mark Zuckerberg’s social network directly from the console, as was the case until now.

What do you think of these new features? Do you like the chance to play in groups of 16?
