PS3 Console 2 player Mode?

  • Will you be able to player with 2 or more at the same time on the same console.

    Example, me and my brother both play on the same console in the same game or will it be like the PC version where you can only play w/other that join in.

    Since console games have the ability to have multi players on same console?

    Hope that made sense...lol

    Yes, you will be able to play with up to 4 players on the same console, and same screen. You'll also be able to quickly jump in and out of a game that's currently in session, just like you can for PC.

    How will a player be able to port to town? Four ppl sitting on a couch, one ports to town...how does that work on the screen? Do I drag everyone with me to town?


    That's a good question, and I hunted down an answer for you! If someone cast town portal while you're in a multiplayer game on a single console, then everyone in the local coop party goes back to town. If you're playing a multiplayer game online, however, town portal will just send the caster back.
  • Pretty close...how about what was advertised? Two players on the couch add two randoms from online, so a party of 4. I read your answer as...major grief...in a fight with big pack, my buddy on the couch opens a portal and me, sitting next to him, and the buddy go back to town leaving the two to fight alone.

    Or how about 3 on the couch...1 poor soul online. Wow..he's screwed.


    I edited my original post after reading your comment to clarify how town portal works in situations where local coop is combined with online multiplayer. You're correct on how it works, regarding the local coop players porting back to town while leaving the others in the field. There is some griefing potential there, but we think the usefulness of this feature outweighs the risk.
