This is awesome news. Applause to Ubisoft becuase split-screen this gen is either terrible or just completely left out in a lot of games.

mikeslemonade3278d ago

Split screen is stupid. All you need is a system link if other people want to play locally. Stop adding features that I don't need in this game. Give me mercs vs spies instead of these meaningless features.

Time to time I actually miss split screen,

Dear ND could u please include that feature at "Uncharted 3: Among Awesomenes" That would be an amazing party

Edit: Come on mike!! split screen is not stupid, its loads of fun if u want to play with some real friends, oh wait, now i got your point :/

Saaking3278d ago

Great news. I like splitscreen a lot more than online only co-op.

ABizzel13278d ago

This is something a lot of Xbox 360 games have that I wish more PS3 games would have (Split Screen co-op).

silvacrest3278d ago

split screen is back
I missed you

bumnut3278d ago (Edited 3278d ago )

split screen is outdated, it was replaced long ago by online gaming.

i don't know why anyone would want split screen these days. It was great before we had online gaming but is just not needed anymore.

silverbeld3278d ago

Wow Splinter Cell with co-op is great.

I will buy when its out for the PS3.

StanLee3278d ago (Edited 3278d ago )

Split-screen is not stupid or outdated and is still one of the best ways to play with a friend. Being able to play Halo 3 and Gears of War online with a friend on one console was a huge plus for me. One game I wished had split-screen, and it would have added to its longevity, is Pure. Burnout Paradise as well. I'm glad some developers still understand that gamers do still like to socialize and enjoy games with a friend or three ( . . . cheers to Halo 3) on the couch.

one of the biggest features that gets overlooked on blockbuster games is split screen. I love playing with friends online, but enjoy it just as much, if not more, offline. I just wish more devs would concentrate on making this a mandatory feature. I would much rather prefer it over 1080p graphics anyday.

AridSpider3278d ago

I'm exactly in the same boat as you. Sure it's nice to have pretty graphics but when I found out Killzone 2 and Uncharted 2 didn't support split-screen I was definitely dissappointed. Is this the sacrifice we all have to make now for "awesome visuals"?

JasonXE3278d ago (Edited 3278d ago )

You freakin nailed it! That's exactly how I feel about some games this gen. Like everyone forgot about gaming with friends and family locally

we won3278d ago (Edited 3278d ago )

I didn't realize there were blockbuster retail games not getting split screen because they were running at 1080p, nor did I realize the games with split-screen has had there resolutions lowered from 1080p because of split-screen. The only games I see at 1080p are a few retail games with simple gameplay or low quality textures or DDL-ed games.

I'm not sure I understand because developers are not thinking "one or the other" with every game they make, assuming they wan't to do 1080p. Maybe you're saying split screen is more important than 1080p? If so you should know by now, not that many games support 1080p and most devs don't try to run games in that resolution.

You guys are rediculous. Stop living in the past. Split screen is dumb like wired controllers. Either find a way to let two players play on one screen.(like madden, tekken, streets of rage etc.) or not have it at all. This feature is not welcome in my book and is a waste of development time.

ndibu3278d ago

Thank you ubisoft for realising that there are still some of us that have real life physical friends that like gaming in the same room. Online is great but what about my friend sitting next to me?? Day 3 purchase for me!

This will be my first true entrance into the Splinter Cell series. I am very much looking forward to it.

SlipperyMooseCakes3278d ago

Why did someone disagree with my comment when I said that I'm excited and this will be the first Splinter Cell game really going to play. How can someone disagree with that? Is fanboyism really that bad? Wow guys.

Blaze9293278d ago

Just about everyone in here who expressed any excitement for this got a disagree. Just ignore it; the fanboys on this site can at times become really sad. I don't even know the point of the disagree and agree feature here.

Cyrax_873278d ago

you're not excited at all are you!? jks bro, everyone gets disagrees for no reason. I got a disagree in another topic for saying "2010 is gonna be one the best gaming years in my life" or something like that >_>

tokoshix3278d ago

I really enjoyed the co-op in Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory so this news just makes me more excited for the game.

AridSpider3278d ago

ahhh yes, Chaos Theory. One of THE best co-op experiences ever

ProA0073278d ago

I remember when I used to watch X-Play; they used to have some hilarious videos with the co-op feature, Bob and Steve:

Blaze9293278d ago

WOW I remember that! WOOOOOOOOOOW. Lol before X-Play sucked

TrevorPhillips3278d ago

Alright more great news from Conviction, looking forward to this game, I'm a huge fan of splinter cell series completed all parts :)
