Splitscreen... last gen?

Splitscreen/localMP is one of the main reasons to have a console. Nothing better than sitting on the couch playing with friends.

Stupidest idea ever.
darthv72  +   486d ago
no split screen but will it support local co-op? As in if you have 2 units networked together you can play.

Or will it only be online co-op?
slazer101  +   486d ago

Buy digital. You get two,for the price of one.
That's if they continue game sharing of course. Have not heard one announcement about game sharing. Which makes me a little worried.
Bundi  +   486d ago
Split screen is last gen? Do you believe this or is this on account that a Sony game is shipping without it?

I'll go on record saying that any mullitplayer game without local split screen is a disappointment. I'm a battlefield fan myself but I've never excused its lack of couch co-op/local multiplayer.
J-R  +   486d ago
I'm way to greedy to play most games split screen. Especially with an FPS. I want every inch of the screen to myself. :)
GiggMan  +   486d ago
Unfortunately that is the only gripe I have about Killzone and Battlefield.

I'm still getting them both but now I have to pick up CoD Ghost because it's the ONLY one with local multiplayer.

I love reliving the Golden Eye days with my friends and accusing them of looking at my section of the screen lol.

Lol...@ bundi

Lack of coop didnt mader in Battlefield 3, story was boring!!!

I don't even remember any of it....other then entering the jet, and not even piloting it!! Haha

Blah, I hate split screen as the quality of the visuals take a dip. KZ3 had it and I didn't use it. I prefer seamless online coop like in Resistance 3 or Halo Reach.

Sure playing with your buds on the same couch is great but I much prefer online drop in drop out co-op.

I won't miss split screen exclusion from KZ:Shadow Fall! Bring on That Awesome Single Player and that 60fps Multiplayer goodness!

"Splitscreen... last gen?

At least killzone used to lets us play with bots while halo doesn't. You need to pay the XBOX LIVE sub to be able to.

By the way PS4 is so much better than the X1. I'm sorry.
webeblazing  +   486d ago
aint the point of consoles is to play with friends. this is why cod sell alot of game do not have split screen. thats one of the main perks of consoles.
KwietStorm  +   486d ago
Now you sound like Kutaragi.
Enigma_2099  +   486d ago
Buy another system and TWO copies of the game just to play two player co-op. Meanwhile games like Borderlands 2 give you a choice.

Every disagree you get is well deserved. I even gave you one as well, cause I'm good like that. Don't thank me. You earned it.
R3DRAIN89  +   486d ago
Split screen is still wanted by many, but only a handfull of games want to support it. Offline MP is just as fun as online if not better, cause you can see their face expressions when they lose :) for example :)

split screen is so last gen
Borderlands 2 spiltscreen, was some of the most fun I had in multiplayer this gen
sonarus  +   485d ago
Split screen is not a major deal breaker for me. High end games have featured it less and less and last gen most of my friends had ps3 so played a lot of online coop that way which is even better than split screen to me. I don't know of any next gen game with split screen confirmed anyway.

I do hope killzone will have online coop though. Lack of online coop in KIllzone 3 really pissed me off
ThanatosDMC  +   485d ago
People still play splitscreen... meh, i guess. I agree with Cell. Buy your wife one. If you smoke, drink, eat expensively, buy guns every few months or go on monthly vacations, that's a lot of money you could have saved for her.

I hate sharing my screen so i buy two of everything for my gf.

@FamilyGuy dude, add an egg, broccoli or spinache, and a squirt of sriracha to the ramen. It adds flavor and tastes good. It's also very filling.

now is up to 2 and most newer digital games have a DRM that to play the game in a different console you first need to wait 24 hours. But 2 persons can't play the same game at the same time.

@Slazer they did comment on game sharing as far as Ps4 only one Psn account can be activated to a Ps4 for the ability to download and okay what's on the Psn account's download list. Ps3 used to be able to do 5 and add we know got reduced to only 2. The Ps4 will be only 1 at a time

HeavenlySnipes  +   486d ago
The Halo games and Gears of War have split screen online

Splits teen online is a big reason to me why I like Halo in the first place on top of its great gameplay
walkincarpet  +   486d ago
hopefully MS continues to split screen. I can't even begin to entertain why devs would take couch co-op and vs away from players. These guys get paid big bucks to be morons, really?

Also, not sure why everyone is hyping KZSF in the first place. Didn't they play these games on PS3? Killzone has always been an average game compared to Halo, COD, BF.
ATi_Elite  +   486d ago
Poor ole Reggie!

The Wiiu is approaching a Year since it's release and has barely reached 4 million units sold (if that much)

Mario Zelda Metroid Donkey Kong can't save WiiU when Gamers are buying camping out to buy XB1/PS4

I expect XB1/PS4 to surpass WiiU in sales DAY 1!!!

Nintendo will be a 3rd party Publisher for XB1/PS4 in a few years
Jay70sgamer  +   486d ago
You really think ps4 or xbox one are gonna sell 3 and a half million units this Christmas season ....they don't even have 3 and half million consoles made ......I don't think so.... maybe over time they will catch up but not this Christmas ....and nintendo said they will never be a software only company and Nintendo has over 10 billion in the bank....so they are hardly hurting in the cash department like Sony
truechainz  +   486d ago
Why are you bringing this up in a discussion about Killzone? Also Nintendo clearly confirmed their IPs will never be 3rd party, which shouldn't be what playstation only fans would want anyway.

Except that maybe dual screen local multiplayer might be a big selling point of the WiiU if the xbone and ps4 drop splitscreen.

or local multiplayer in general...

stevehyphen  +   486d ago
Most devs want to show off the visuals to some extent. To make a game split screen, you have to take away some of that visual flair. At least if the game is making the console put serious work in.

Racing games probably got hit the worst.

TheDivine  +   486d ago
They sell more copies without it. Now you need two consoles, two games, and two subs for ps online. Friends can't sit around like gears and play four player coop. Then again only KZ3 had coop so its not a standard for GG like it is for Halo, Gears, and COD. Il be pissed if there's no bots in this and Mercenery though. I'd like to mess around offline w my bro to practice. I've always loved that KZ still has bots, only that, COD, and Gears still do it well IMO.

KZ is a great series but its always lacked the complete package. Either a great sp w no coop or coop and a short campaign. It needs a campaign, coop, some hoard or survival mode, and mp. It needs to be THE ps4 game for friends like what Gears was for the 360. As is il beat it and move on, maybe play some mp here and there. In gears 3 I could play bots solo, mp, split screen online, coop campaign, coop hoard and any combination. Everything was top notch. GG has the skill obviously but they usually short one side of the stick. Its pretty though.
LiQuiZoN  +   486d ago
Sucks there is no split-screen, but its to be expected from a 1st generation title for the new systems. I'm by no mean surprised by this, but splitscreen is ofcourse a really nice feature.

FamilyGuy  +   486d ago
A lot of people don't use split screen in FPS but it's a great option to have, even if the visuals have to take a quality dip.

I think I read this 2 days ago though, either way it's sad to hear. No one wants to buy 2 consoles just to play a game in the same house/on the same couch. That's ridiculous.

The start of the PS3 gen was like this too with games like Burnout Paradise and MotorStorm launching without split screen and later having it via DLC or in MSs case in MS2.

I'm disappointed :/

No split screen, no 3D, and no Move support. Next gen is almost here but we are taking steps backwards in certain areas.

Sony pushed 3D, I bought a 3D TV from THEM and now they don't even talk about it.

Sony pushed Move, I bought Move with a navigation controller and the gun... Guess what? No move support in the one game it was the best in (KZ3). Very disappointing. I will not be buying their stupid add ons this gen.

I always preferred the top screen myself. It's nice when you have a choice. Right now I play without split screen but when my boys get older then I hope more devs wisen up. Perhaps they should pay more attention to COD and Halo sales. Many gamers need split screen and they will buy the games that support it.
nades_all_night  +   486d ago
Split screen to me is a non factor, however I can understand a good number of people who enjoy it. I would've liked to see them include a game mode to work with the SimulView tech with some of Sony's 3D tv's but, its once again something that doesn't really make or break this game for me.

No split screen is a lot of points taken off. If you can't play with a friend locally online when you want to that defeats the purpose of being a true multiplayer game. I got too many friends to sit there and play in front of them for hours while they just watch. Smh

People keep bashing call of duty but until developers understand that our homes are not dev studios with 10's of consoles ready to have a huge lan game, I'll keep buying it since its light years ahead of all other shooters apart from possibly halo.

We don't care if you need to turn down the graphics settings to make it work. My main issue this gen was the lack of local multiplayer on shooters. If its only going to get worse then consoles have lost their main selling point for me.
KrisButtar  +   486d ago
I thought with the upcoming gen we would finally start moving away from COD, yet after this news Killzone is now on the back burner again to COD with all my friends

Exactly, well said. PS3 had so many great games but almost no great local multiplayer options. I really hope splitscreen makes a proper comeback this gen! Bots and everything :D ...and Timesplitters 4.
king_george  +   486d ago
I couldnt agree more. I hate when people bash the crap outta call of duty but dont stop and think that there really isnt many other shooters out there that do what COD does. say what you will about call of duty but it does get alot of the basics right. im a new Call of duty player so maybe my opinion isnt as valid as others but it just seems that alot of other games dont get called out for half the things cod does
