    Default Split Screen?

    I saw someone asked this a little while ago, but what's the word on splitscreen multiplayer? Is it in high demand or is it low priority? How many of you guys are hoping for this feature to make the cut. Will the system be able to handle it at 1080p 60fps?

    I know it hasn't been a staple of the series, but i think it would add a lot to the game. For all of us who have fond memories of 4 player Mario Kart battles, but need something with a little more kick. I also have some friends who, though they love wipeout, never got to the level of obsess... err... dedication that i have. So i'm sure they'd jump at the chance to ram a few Quakes up my arse.

    Also, did elimination make the cut?

    spilt screen in HD? im not sure but im going to say i doubt it. for a few reasons, for me at least i need to see the screen as big as can be, theres so many lights and colors and speed going on that if you squished it into a split screen(especially 4) it would be quite the pain to see a lot of what your doing. also, i dont think it will because most games for next gen consoles have a lot more development time focused into having your multi player expieriences over the net as a opposed to spilt screen. Spilt screen is going out, online multi-play is the new in, thats just how it goes.

    2 players on WO64 was legendary even though it was tacked on. It worked very well and TBH, I have some friends who will enjoy playing the game.

    I hope they do add it on, at least 2 players anyways.

    Yeah, i mean i recall having a lot of fun in W3O (NA version) with a buddy of mine. Didn't they even have some weps just for multiplayer (like reverse control).

    I mean i can understand your qualm about squeezing 4 players onto one screen... 10 years ago. But especially since they're going for 1080p which is really meant for 30+ inch screens, i don't think there would be a problem with visibility myself. I have yet to upgrade to an HD, but for splitscreen i would definitely get a bigger TV.

    I know it's not all that likely, but here's hoping.

    Cool

    Yeah, it's too bad there won't be multiplayer (or likely not). That would be a huge selling point. I mean, you can get other people to love a game a lot easier by playing it with your friends at your place, as opposed to them watching you play it.

    I really hope it has up to 4, because on my roommate's and my new 60" 1080p HDTV (yeah, he's makin the crazy bank), having it split in 4 won't be much of a big deal

    plus, the idea of 4 icaras on one screen is orgasmic.

    It's a 1 player game unless you take it online.

    Perhaps you missed it: 4 Icaras on one screen.
