Fourzerotwo has confirmed via Twitter that there will be split-screen online in Modern Warfare 3.
That's great news. It'd be disappointing not to have that feature after black-ops had it.
FANTASTIC!! yeah but black ops sucked!
IMO it will still be somewhat dissapointing if its not full widescreen or theres frame rate lag like the blackops version. That really made it unplayable competitively for me. But hey, i guess something is better then nothing. Also i hope it has ability to allow UNIQUE player sign in and not just guest.
"Your wife will be very happy" ROFLMAO! Anyways this is good news. Would have been disappointing if it didn't.
i know how it would work....xbox will have double account boot in while ps3 gamers get to play spiltscreen BUT with no double account boot in (which is totally possible, look at LBP, resistance, uncharted 3, warhawk)so ps3 gamers will again be screwed, but what can I do about it? well just bitch about it T_T....
Modern Warfare 2 actually took advantage of some PSN features most developers still don't bother with, like in-game status displayed on the XMB and invites which allow you to accept and start the game right from an invite. I think you could even join a friend's match right from the XMB, but I think you had to be playing the game. So, I don't know about Treyarch, but Infinity Ward has a pretty good track record for supporting those kind of features on PS3. Maybe they'll add dual login.
Yeah it was a bit dissapointing that Treyarch got rid of several PSN features that were in MW2 for Black Ops, hopefully they all make a return in MW3.
yeah but still, i dont have much hope from them to implement dual login. i would be happy if they could implement custom soundtracks for MP (like killzone 2 and 3) that would make me very happy but ill still be down with no dual login :( (i want to play with my little bro with his own account)
your wife wii be very happy?!?????? looooool
Only reason why I'm gonna buy this, thank god they didn't remove it
Always was and always will be a terrible idea. The amount of games that have unplayable lag due to splitscreeners running off mickey mouse broadband is unreal. It should have some sort of bandwidth test so as to stop folk if there connection is not up to it.
just don't use it then... the player get matched up with each other after if they are playing single, go split screen.
OMG yes!!! This was my favorite part of Black Ops, playing online and owning noobs with a friend :-)
Does resistance 3 have dual sign in?
yes. And you can play with the ONLINE PASS with any account on your console with Resistance 3. Even Dual login + online, no problem. The first intelligent pass...
ah, alright, thanks.
great! should I buy this or battlefield? my brother is going to get battlefield, so I can get is for half the price, or I could let him buy it and buy MW3 for regular price
WTF? Here comes all the laggers! This is a stupid ass idea.
Dunno why you consider this stupid. It's a nice feature, especially in the sense that if your friend/co-worker/etc comes over and would like to play with you, instead of having to get a 2nd console, and a 2nd copy of the game, you can quickly sign in and play a couple of matches.
It's stupid because you lag like crazy.
Marvellous :/ That guarantees laggy matches. There's nothing worse than half the lobby being made up of people using split screen. Most of the people who play online have poor connections and split screen multiplayer just exacerbates the problem. It was one of the reasons Black Ops was so terrible... you choose local search, but still get put in matches with people on the other side of the world... and most of them are using split. There's no way you can have a decent match.
