Two people play split-screen online from same PS3.

Idea 7201 | Posted in by | March 25, 2010

Let two people both log in to their PSN account on the same PS3, and play split-screen online against others. Would be great in MW2 or other shooters.

It all depends on what the develop chooses to do. Resistance 2 has this and I think LittleBigPlanet does as well.

So has no control over what Infinity Ward and Activision do with MW2.

yep this is def. up to the developers, Modnation racers has already been confirmed to have 4 player split screen, and 2 player online split screen

@Worm – The 2-player online split isnt local off the same PS3 as the idea suggests… But youre right, it should be up to devs – if it makes a better game…

more and more the co-op games are the trend.. why not split screen online.. something like resident evil 5 like games should do..

It is a good idea, but it has already been implemented.

As MrBeatdown said, it’s up to the developers to choose to implement it or not, depending upon what they want their game to do.

developer issue , they are the ones in position to determine what their game can or cannot do .

people keeps posting this idea like 5 times a day and yet not one idea i came up with even got accepted and they are 10 times better and not been posted as often if not at all… and its ideas that we actually don’t have even….

I like how warhawk allows you to do up to four player splitscreen online. They need to have more games that do this. I wish mw2 had this option so i could play online with my friends on the same ps3.



psmitty95  |  March 26th, 2010 at 9:18 pm

i agree, this would be sick if they did this for games like mw2

i know the developers can put it in the game, but isn’t playstation the only one that can make it so two people can go on PSN at the same time?

Warhawk lets you do upto 4 player split screen online. =))

unranked rooms only.


Faaeng  |  March 28th, 2010 at 7:17 am

oh just reread your post.I don’t thin it lets each individual actually log in under a seperate account tho….

This needs to be as mandatory as trophy support is now. No exceptions.

It ALL depends on the game…

If this came out, i would be playin ps3 with my bro EVERY DAY! (especially on MW2)

split screen online is realy fun especially in warhawk all online games should have it.

Im guessing with the OP’s name he is heavily into modern warfar 2, and im also guessing he wants this feature to “Boost” with his little friends.

So im voting this down,, plus its totally up to developers what they do with their games.

Just hope if they allow this that they impliment some sort of booster nerf, like you cant play on opposite teams, or kill each other more than once or somthing!


kirafung  |  March 13th, 2011 at 3:10 pm

It is a nice idea.

If no split screen, at least both user can login at the same time for games like Dead Nation.


sevenlegs777  |  July 24th, 2011 at 9:42 pm

i would love if this worked for games like black ops i really hope the votes win


Scheistee  |  December 21st, 2011 at 12:18 am

This has already been added to Black Ops and MW3!
