Good Local Multiplayer games for PS3 - Tuesday, January 08, 2008 11:06 PM ( #1 )
I really prefer local/split screen multiplayer games to online simply because I enjoy being in the presence of the others while gaming together, and it's also easier in my case to do this since I often take consoles over to another house during gatherings and hook it up (which if done online would require several tv's, several consoles, several discs, etc...). Don't get me wrong online and local are different beasts and not really comparable...Anyways on to what I'm asking, what are some (particularly FPS or action) local multiplayer games for PS3 that are either out, or are going to come out. I go all over the web trying to read previews and first impressions but usually online is the only aspect mentioned. For example, I already know Resistance is a great one to start w/ as I did find it said there's 4 player split screen, and I know Haze is supposed to offer it as well. Army of Two is another. I found out here that UT apparently doesn't have it now, but may in a future update. I know the PS3 library is very young/limited now, but with an enormous lineup in the future, I suspect there's plenty abound....Thanks in advance.

I think Resistance, Warhawk, GRAW 2 and Rainbow Six all have split screen multi-player

As an alternative, if you have about 4-6 controllers accessible a good thing to look for is some good PS2 and even PS1 games online to play as well.  With PS3's bluetooth censors, you wont need a multitap to hook up so many controllers.  Me and some of my friends to this day still play Blast Chamber on PS1!!!

thanks for the replies. I read Warhawk was online only though (meaning I assumed that meant that you either play on PSN or not at all).

COD4, Warhawk, Unreal Tournament, Fight Night Round 3    are the games I have played online...
 
Sometimes COD4 has a little lag...    The other games were fine thus far.
 
Have yet to pop in Motorstorm mp... ( heard it was good.. )  Hopefully this weekend.

It's hard to describe, basically it is a four-player game where everyone has a bomb strapped to their chest and you have to drop this ball in the center to add more time to your bomb.  Kind of like a sadistic version of hot potato.

No its offline too. Yet you can download it or buy it from the Playstation Store on your PS3.

You know how freaking cool it would be to have that game as an online PSN download? This NEEDS a next gen remake or something. Blast Chamber is one of the games that stressed creativity during the peak of 90's gaming.  Come to think about it, the concept of Blast Chamber has never been done since.

the playstation consoles all have had there far share of underrated games. never understood why sony didn't and doesn't market these types of "different" games, cuz there good! i don't think sony can ever tell (when they strive for "different" games) if it will be recived well by the public or even if it's gonna be good sometimes. i think the release of lair warrents there concerns. i doubt they saw that coming

Is this true?  I have yet to download the update for the game... So i have not had the chance to try it online yet.  I did hear that it was pretty difficult.   I wonder if the great players play alot to get good or does it come natural.

I don't have a ps3 yet but when I do, I will be focusing on online mostly. Unless its a really good game otherwise.
