A while ago I posted a thread requesting suggestions for good multi-player/co-op splitscreen FPS on the Xbox. I asked because I had been playing splitscreen Halo and really liked it. Thanks to the nice members here, I am now the happy owner of Timesplitters 2 (the best!) and Nightfire (also a lot of fun - especially Capture the Flag.) But as the popularity of Xbox Live increases, I seem to read more and more game previews that mention multiplayer ONLY in terms of Live, as if the very idea of splitscreen had faded from the earth. When you don't even bother to mention whether a feature is or is not included anymore, the future for that feature (tongue-twister?) doesn't look good. Is this true? Can games incorporate both, or is splitscreen doomed by the rising popularity of online gaming? If it is, then I think that's a shame. I don't have a DSL connection, but I might not get Live even if I did, because I mostly play multi-player games in a social setting, I.E. I have a couple of friends over or we're having a party or whatever, and it's fun to play against the people you're sitting next to on the big screen... Is this going to become a distant memory? What do you think?
