Eight players is the standard for PC; I'd be highly surprised if there were any fewer. Warcraft III actually supported up to 12 players ("technically" you could have sixteen if you pulled some strings in the map editor, but four of them would be "invisible" players that could only be controlled by the AI and wouldn't appear on the allies screen, and it had some weird side effects), and I think that worked quite well. I'd like to see DoF support a large range of players so that future systems could actually take advantage of it.

I don't know about the technical limitations of the xbox when it comes to the number of players in the game or interaction between the PC and Xbox version, so we have to wait and see what Reverie has to say about it.
