Microsoft has revealed that the Xbox One will connect to eight controllers simultaneously. That's no less than double the four that the Xbox 360 supports.
This comes from an update on the official Xbox One website

Another interesting nugget on there is the fact that the controllers will have a range of up to 30ft. If you have a living/gaming room that big, please understand that you are taking up too much space.
There's been no confirmation on how many controllers the PS4 will support so far, though the PS3 could handle seven.
