ive owned 360 for a while now, and just bought a PS3. I want to ditch my 360 to earn some extra cash but first I need to find a few good games that are 4 player capable, split screen.

for 360 there was perfect dark and forza2, to name my two favorites.

all the game cases I have been reading for ps3 tell me players: 1 (1-X) online, can anyone help?

i want a good party game! dont make me hook up my n64 all over again for goldeneye and mario kart.

Yup, nuttin can beat warhawk now in terms of favorite 4 player co-op game.

so do we have any options for racing, fps or other? something to put in when you run out of girls to bang at a party, that anyone can pick up and everyone wants a turn. you know....

i have soul calibur 4 which is fun to take turns playing but a 4 player split game keeps everyone happy, and i dont want to buy 2 more 360 controllers, id rather get 2 more ps3 controllers.

please convince me to spend another 100 bucks on controllers!

Motorstorm Pacific Rift has 4 player splitscreen racing + online racing you know :P.

And so does R2 actually as far as I understood it you can play that game's single player Campaign with up to 8 people online 4 on one PS3 and 4 on another one somewhere in the world that's pretty cool man :).

Call of Duty 4 is the best 4-player splitscreen I can think of.

No soul calibur 4 anyone?

hopefully ill still be alive in time to see Pacific Rift and Resistance 2.

is CoD4 anything like CoD3 where the deathmatches blew since the maps were so huge you spent 97% of the time not shooting with 2-4 players? these games are truely only good online where the player count reaches heights fit for their maps playstyle.

in perfect dark the game is friendly to 2-4 players by offering small maps where you can 1v1v1v1, or big maps where you can team up against bots, or have 2 bots on each team still on the same system im starting to think i should buy 2 more xbox controllers and pour some of my forty out for the dollar bills i put into ps3 just for metal gear and darth vader.

im playing soul calibur downstairs now, but the players blend in so well with the background it makes it hard for spectators to watch as easily. every super cool move is mashed in behind a pixel paradise all while moving so fast. I liked the contrast of SC1, along with the unlockable boss char that looked like i we would all be worshipping him if he existed, not some douchebag who grabbed the sword last, (sc3 did it better)

"TimeSplitters 2 may very well be the best split-screen multiplayer-focused first-person shooter ever created." (gamespot ps2 review) - if only there was one of these out NOW for ps3.

WARHAWK...seriously its so much fun in split screen with some buddies against 32 players

Id say...

Warhawk, CoD4 or Resistance. Maybe even R6.

You could go for virtua tennis. No online mode though. But doubles games can be really exciting and entertaining.

I didn't know you can play SC4 with 4 players offline... Can you? And how does that work with the 2-D battle system on a 3D plane?

Morning

Does any one know what Expansion pack do you need to play 4 player split screen zombies on COD5 ?

Plus whats the best racing 4 player split screen other than Motor Storm Pacific Rift ?

#22 Posted by JKG33 (656 posts) -

COD WAW, Zombies is really fun in 4 player. Motorstorm PR, LBP, sports games (ie Madden, NHL) and for a party game NHL 3 on 3 arcade is fun.

That's not true at all, unfortunately. In R1, you have 4 player off-line competitive multiplayer, and 2 player off-line co-op, the rest is singleplayer. (up to 40 total online) In R2, you have 2 player splitscreen for both competitive multiplayer and the cooperative campaign (which is separate from the main campaign). The co-op is up to 8 players online, and the competitive is up to 60 players online. However, the max on one PS3 is 2 players for either mode.

Little big planet the best one for 4 players

#28 Posted by G-Legend (7294 posts) -

LBP for sure is the most fun!

Madden. Get a 2 on 2 game going and I guarantee you'll have a blast, even if you don't know the rules of Football.

haze is only 2 player split screen
