Looking for more games to play with my girlfriend... Don't have many multiplayer games so lately it's just been me watching her play Heavy Rain and stuff.

Unlikely.

Very unlikely. The 360 can't handle split screen on a game like this.

If you had looked at the other posts on the front page, one of them being "Co-Op Confirmed!!!" and followed the link, you'd have your answer.

As of now, there is no split-screen co-op for any system.

I saw that topic, and it didn't mention split-screen. This question spun off from that.

It's not impossible to have local multiplayer no matter what.

If RE5 and Lost Planet 2 are any indicators, this game will probably be playable with a friend and an extra controller.

At first I thought it was totally out of the question. But if they use zones like last time, and if they restrict both party members to the same zone, and they reduce gore and bodies disappear like in L4D split screen. Maybe, still very very unlikely, but maybe.

The other thing to look at regarding Co-Op would be Dynasty/Samurai/Orochi warriors, which is third person, involves a lot of on-screen enemies and a large variety of effects.

If you remember, Dead Rising didn't render all of the enemies in an area at once. In Paradise Plaza alone, enemies popped into existence all the time. Co-Op on DR2 is possible, but the draw distance would be much smaller, since a single box has to render two sets of zombies/objects at once.

System Link and Live would allow a shared or distributed burden, making it easier to render without a frame-rate drop.

Do hope they dont tone down the game just to allow split screen, end of the day xbox and ps3 consoles have poor specs.

Again, there will be NO split-screen co-op.
