What happened to offline multiplayer?

As much as I love Xbox Live and PSN, I grew up with offline multiplayer and the amazing experiences it produced. Now I can’t help but think: why don’t developers care about it anymore?

It was directed at the disagreer. By "you" I meant the fanboy that cannot stand x360 being spoken about in a positive light

It died when devs decided Call of Doody was the standard for what a game's multiplayer aspect should be.

Give Black Ops its due, they have improved A LOT in terms of offline multiplayer or even split screen multiplayer in general with the implementation of combat training and the ability to have someone else add a controller and join you online

Codemaster002986d ago

I'm not going to bash Black Ops, I've played it quite a bit already, but disagree that it improved offline multiplayer. Combat training is neat, but why have it online only even though it includes split screen.

My main problem is that for local multiplayer, the customization options that they added to online is completely absent. You can't rename classes or customize the rules for the games. (every team deathmatch is 10 minutes or 7500 points). Private online matches and system link let you customize which weapons/attachments can be used, how many points kills and assists are and tons of others.

why do people love to bash COD
if u dont like it u dont have to play it

plus u fail cuz COD has split screen multi

im not even a COD fan

I must say its back in black ops. Black ops have done offline multiplayer like it should be.

It decided that console games are basically dumbed down PC ports so why bother. O well, at least we still have Smash Bros.

what happened to it... Online infrastructure became common place and the need to play friends no longer meant they needed to be in the same room any more

i prefer gaming with my friend in the same room.
and besides...Halo reach
