    i feel i have to comment on this as i feel quite strongly about this, not just in the wipeout series but other games too.

    split screen is awesome, simple as.

    online is great, it's the next step, but by no means a replacement for the experience of sitting next to your best mates and beating the hell out of them at a game. or passing the control around while you chill out, socialise and have a great time. wipeout is one of those games which work great single player and multiplayer.

    ramming a quake up someone's ass, then seeing their reaction beside you is what i'm talking about!

    to not have something that was introduced over ten years ago and is a staple of gaming, would be a real let down and inexcusible. especially a feature present in past wipeout games.

    too many games lately lack this option, today we want, single player, split screen, online and online split screen. it is been done, can be done and should be done with all games that would benefit from it, wipeout been one of them...and on the ps3, it should be possible.

    i suspect this won't be in Wipeout HD, but should be in the next PS3 wipeout.

    Totally agree with everything you say there. I've spent countless hours with buddies in split screen, and those times were great fun and bring back great memories (my friend owning me in Halo 3, as well as many others) It would be a shame to see WipEout HD without them

    Yes I agree. Splitscreen online is the most fun you can have with friends and a game. I really hope they make a fullpriced retail-game and include that.

    definitely agree with you Isa.
    That cuts the friendly part of playing with friends in a same room.

    Look at Pure or Pulse when inviting Dag & the FFF team at home to play through Xlink Kai or right now online with Pulse : it's pure essence of friendship.
    what can we do now with HD if no splitscreens : everyone staying in his own house playing online and that is all ... how may looks like the next Wipeout convention? bring 20 lcds for 20 pilots with their 20 ps3 ( please bring back 2 more in case of...) for what? playing alone in front of our screen and not be able to play ad hoc or lan? and my precious friday sessions with Dag at home ,finished?

    Why do you think the Wii does well? CAUSE OF (OFFLINE) MULTIPLAYER!!!! I'm quite shocked they left this feature out. They really think we have no friends?

    split would be nice, but not at the expense of delay at this point for me. wo3, and 64 both played very nicely in split screen mode.

    Generally speaking I don't care if it has split screen or not. It's not like the good old days here anymore the friends I have that are still into gaming are 360 loving morons now the rest have little interest in gaming anymore thanks to booze and drugs. So it's not like theres any real competition are these parts for me. It's like I'm the only one who hasn't 'moved on' if you like considering my love the series ran all the way through school.

    Different when I travel to see other pilots from here! I was wondering about this if there is a convention next year, its going to be hard getting off HD and going back to PSP, probably be like taking an addicts heroin away.

    About ''moving on'': Some things are worth never leaving, or at least worth always coming back to. Not all moves are forward; many are dead ends. Or quick burnouts. Or slow death [like a bad career]. But we should probably always be trying out new roads.
