Microsoft has spent a good amount of energy detailing the controller for its upcoming console, and now we've learned yet another detail — the Xbox One will support up to eight wireless controllers simultaneously. That's double what the Xbox 360 supports, and the One's wireless controllers will also feature a 30 foot range. Of course, it's unlikely that many developers will utilize so many controllers for local multiplayer, but it could potentially be a great way to play Madden or FIFA with a large number of friends. More importantly, it also means that the Xbox One could be home to the next-gen Bomberman game of our dreams.
