New console to boast similar chat functionality to PS Vita

PlayStation 4 Party Chat will support up to eight users chatting at one time, a representative for Sony has confirmed.

In a Q&A concerning Killzone Shadow Fall, Sony social media manager Sid Shuman was queried about the functionality.

"Party Voice Chat will support up to 8 players on PS4, like PS Vita," he responded.

Owners of the PS4 will also be able to chat with those using the PS Vita.

While the functionality will be available at launch, certain headsets may not support it. As reported last week, PS4 will not support current-gen bluetooth headsets for chat, and will require a post-launch patch for USB-based headsets to be compatible.

Even Sony's own PULSE headsets will require a post-launch system update before they can be used at all - not just specifically for chat. The PS4 will be bundled with its own mono headset.
