The New Tier Of Consoles Will Finally Bury Split-Screen Gaming

"Ever since gaming began playing with a friend has not only been more enjoyable, but it has carried various benefits such as an additional competitive edge, moments that could be collectively remembered by two (or more) people (remember "cheating" by looking at the other player's portion of the screen?) and overall, arguably left a higher sense of achievement (considering you were the 'winner')."

What do you have against splitscreen? That is one of the few reason to get a console.

I'll take a bit of screen watching over a lag kill or cheater online anyday. AT least if the person is douche I can physically deal with them myself.....

Nothing beat being able to reach across the couch and actually hit your buddy for being an a$$ in the old days of GoldenEye and Perfect Dark on the N64... especially when you got to highjack the big screen TV in the dorm lobby on a Tuesday night

As much as I love borderlands 2 on co-op over live, nothing beats playing local split screen.

30 Years Ago, One Video Game System Hopelessly Failed Kids Everywhere

From Fatherly: "The Atari Jaguar never stood a chance. Here's why this forgotten video game system could have been the next big thing, but wasn't."

the jaguar (as a system) was pretty interesting. it certainly had the chops to go toe to toe with the others at the time. The problem was the lack of understanding the architecture. Only very few titles could actually show off some of what the Jag was capable of (ex. AvP) but many devs chose not to get to know the hardware and instead used what they knew which was the 68k processor inside (even though there were more powerful chips at their disposal).

It didnt help things that the controller was atrocious to deal with. Using overlays like it was the good old days... not very user friendly. They tried to correct that by making a pro controller with more face buttons but hardly any games made use of it. And the CD attachment that made the whole thing look like a kiddie potty... yikes. the only saving grace now is the indie / modding community. there have been much better games released for it recently than back in the day.

“Hopelessly Failed Kids Everywhere”

At the time, the Jaguar was not marketed as a kids console. Just look at the games: Doom, Aliens versus Predator, and Wolfenstein 3D. This was basically a PC gaming alternative for grownups. Made sense when the Nintendo and Sega owned the market for kids games. Except of course that grownups already had PCs that played PC games. Keep in mind that back then, graphics ran on the CPU. Gaming PC prices were net yet inflated by the cost of dedicated graphics cards.

A dud console with a stupidly designed controller, and only a small smattering of worthwhile games, with no Japanese support, using carts when the industry was moving to optical media (except Nintendo of course!), never had the chance to be the next big thing in gaming.
