Resident Evil 5 split-screen co-op demo reinforces need to buy two copies

Good news: Capcom's Resident Evil 5 cooperative gameplay mode will support split-screen play so that two gamers can play from one television. The bad news: that screenshot up there is what splitscreen will look like on your television.

That stinks. I hope there are diff. options of split screen and not just that. Never de less if it becomes unpleasant to my eyes, it will suffer the sever consequences. AKA trading the game in.

This will not stop me from buying it.

because even though this is a mild inconvenience we still have online co-op, thats key

"Update: Reader ryu89 pointed out that he experienced no such issues when playing the demo made available on the Japanese Xbox LIVE Marketplace. I went back and switched my console to 480i standard resolution and sure enough, the screen is split in a different manner. However, the screen is split as shown above when running in 720p, 1080i, and 1080p." (referring to the blackbarred screenshot)

uhh i've played the demo from the LIVE marketplace in 1080p and i have no such bars when i play w/ my bro, i may just fire up the demo and grab some shots in action of local co-op just to prove it...my 360 is hooked up w/ components so could it be a connection thing???

Just like Call of Duty 5.

They wouldn't think of putting the two screens aligned? no! Money first, quality after.

Works great on Resistance 2. I'm sure this one will be fine.

Personal diary excerpt 53:

It seems that my previous accounts of my adventures (save for a couple excerpts) have been lost to that villain that calls himself Jack Thompson. No matter, for I have decimated his village and taken his treasures. However, this one treasure seems strange. Different from the others. It was at the back of the village, and I had to make my way past several undead that were summoned by Thompson's evil shamans. I defeated these evil beings and found that the treasure required two people to lift. However, the handholds were in such strange places that it took more effort than necessary to move it to the convoy. Such a bad design of this treasure cannot be excused. I am not sure if it will be worth much back in the Homeland, but for what it took to reach it, I will not abandon it.
