I will say as much fun is it to play online some times you just want to grab some of your friends and play against them in good old
split-screen. I also like when you hook up two consoles and play with your buddy against two more of your friends. So this way you can see more stuff on the screen plus when you are playing a 2vs2 game no one can cheat.

So as much as online is big this gen I really do not want to see develops skip over split-screen because some times it is just more fun to play with some one you know over some one you do not.

This is the best justification of hd for a gamer outside of improved resolution (and because of it). It only makes sense.
