i would careless about split-screen BTW!

MysticStrummer1545d ago

Split screen is always a good option, but it's not something that would cause or prevent my own purchase.

The only thing this game got going for it is Graphics and DLC.... this game is beyound featureless...
How can a game even be allowed to go too retail in this kinda condition?

SniperControl1545d ago

Expand on featureless please?

DoctorJones1545d ago (Edited 1545d ago )

A racing game without split screen should never be supported. Do people nowadays not play against people in the same room?

Such a narrow concept.

360ICE1545d ago

To be fair, I never ended up making much use of GT's split screen. More accessible games like Motorstorm (Pacific Rift, at least), Mario Kart and ModNation Racers suit split-screen better.

Then again, Driveclub is going to be a hybrid between arcade and sim, so I'd definitely welcome split-screen.

SaxScrotumz1545d ago

Bummed out that split screen is not supported. Aside from this, the game looks very promising and I can't wait to play it.

GameDev11545d ago

Online is pushing more nowadays than local co-op. so as much as gamers would love split screen, there are reasons why devs are abandoning it

I mean Forza Horizon 2 also doesn't feature split screen because of pushing more for social online implementation like Drive club

I honestly cant remember the last split screen game I co-oped with someone, most gaming is socially online nowadays

So that "should never be supported" statement seems a bit harsh.

Torque_CS_Lewith1545d ago

Horizon 2 is an open world game. How many open world racers do you know with split screen?

ScottyHoss1545d ago

I guess I'll be waiting for dying light to get my 4 player split screen fix :(

MysticStrummer1545d ago

"Do people nowadays not play against people in the same room?"

I don't and haven't for nearly a decade. I prefer playing online, though split screen is always a nice option.

You have a narrow point of view if you think no racing game without split screen should ever be supported.

Why are they selling the bundle with an extra controller and Driveclub? That doesn't make much sense to me.

DragoonsScaleLegends1545d ago

To make them feel like they need a second controller for it when they really don't.

ThatOneGuyThere1545d ago

because the battery drains in like 12 minutes. thats why i have 2 controllers..

WeAreLegion1545d ago

Haha. Fair enough. I have one for my PS4 and one for my PC. The battery is just fine for me, since I usually leave it plugged into the wall when I play.

ThatOneGuyThere1545d ago

i do appreciate how it charges your controller when the system is on standby

GameDev11545d ago

Really questions maybe they are doing something for local co-op?!

Rick_Ross_Boss1545d ago

How can you not have split screen on a racer?

MysticStrummer1545d ago

I guess you should ask the developers of many past racing games.

Rick_Ross_Boss1545d ago

Well it is annoying that many games are doing this these days. Love playing split screen with friends and family.

DragoonsScaleLegends1545d ago

Split-Screen gaming were have you gone? :(

aviator1891545d ago

It's still here...just not in all games.

DragoonsScaleLegends1545d ago

Use to it felt like almost every game would have it but now there are a lot that don't have it. Nintendo are the only ones who add in local multiplayer in almost all of there games.

aviator1891545d ago

I agree.
split-screen gaming is still a huge thing at my house and Nintendo is actually pretty great at that. One of the main reasons why we got the wii-u as well.

Torque_CS_Lewith1545d ago

To Xbox. Halo, Forza Motorsport, Fable, Gears of War...
