PlayStation Preview Program Doubling Maximum Party Size to 16

PlayStation Preview Program Doubling Maximum Party Size to 16

Alongside an increase from eight participants to 16, member of the preview program will get the chance to test improved audio quality for voice chat and better network connectivity.

"The preview code we'll be providing can be redeemed by 20 different qualifying accounts, so share the code with your friends and try out the new Party updates together!"

The only drawback with signing up for the Preview Program is that you won't be able to join the same Party or use Share Play with others who aren't participating in the program.

It's been a while since the PlayStation 4 had a big feature update, we're still waiting for a way to gift games or trade back in old digital titles, both of those have been covered in patents filed by Sony so they may be on the way.

Jeopardy!: James Holzhauer's winning streak ends short of money record
The pro gambler from Las Vegas needed only $58,000 and change to topple Ken Jennings from the top of the all-time leaderboard. A native of the Philadelphia suburbs, Boettcher got hooked on " Jeopardy! " and competitive trivia as a teenager.


One feature exclusive to the United States as part of the patch is chat transcription, available through the PS4 itself or via a smartphone. Although presumebly PlayStation will provide more info on that shortly, or potentially send out emails to prospective users as they often do with the PlayStation 4 System Software Beta Trial programme.

After recently offering a fresh look at Death Stranding, the company has now detailed some upcoming changes to the PS4's party system, and it sounds intriguing. Sony says these app-focused updates are available to US- and Canada-based users only for the time being, and only in English.

Here is the changelog for Ps4 firmware update 6.71 and it is just laughable since there is nothing to go on here.

But according to a recent leak, the next major PS4 numbered update will give users the ability to gift games from the PS Store.
