MW3 split screen system link multiplayer?

10
Found 4th Nov 2011
Hi, 1 for anybody who downloaded MW3 early...
I have hardened on pre-order but I only want the game if system link multiplayer allows 2 player split screen like Black Ops. MW2 was single player.

Any ideas anybody?

From a quick Google search only seems to be in multiplayer.

Thanks...but that is online. I want system link (offline). Hopefully it will work on system link if it works online..but who knows.
Xbox states..http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-GB/Product/Call-of-Duty-Modern-Warfare-3/66acd000-77fe-1000-9115-d802415608cb?nosplash=1

Features

* Offline players 2 - 4
* Offline co-op 2 - 4
* System Link 1 - 4

Online features

* Online multiplayer 2 - 18
* Online co-op 2 - 18
* Leaderboards
* Voice chat

However, that could be 4 xboxes all with 1 player each for all I know.

System Link is what it is linking systems.

Offline Co-op suggests 2-4 players not sure I have ever seen a title offer 4 players going for the same objective through one screen.

Have I confused people ..or just myself?

On black ops we play 2 v 2 multiplayer. We play this on 2 XBOX's in the same house via system link (not using Xbox live). Each Xbox has 2 players per console (split screen). 4 players total.

MW2 let you play 4 player split screen on 1 console but as soon as you system linked it only let you have 1 per console. Therefore, 2 XBOX on system link for MW2 was just 2 players total. (quote how they could let you play 4 players on 1 console but just 2 on 2 is anybodys guess).

I am hoping that as MW3 has allowed split screen online it will have followed Black Ops and let people play 2 v 2 system link multiplayer on system link.

Didn't know you could do that on black ops. (Starts digging for another projector)

If you do try it ...both have to have the same update version of the game.
Also, 1 xbox will not find the other game until you you click start and it says "waiting for other players".
We have had 4 xboxes together 4 v 4 (8 total) on wireless system link before. More fun than sitting in different houses and better than pinging back around the country.

Any of you ever tried having a 4 vs 4 split screen system link using only 2 XBoxes or PS3s? This can include either blackops or mw3. If not, do we know if it can be done?

Hey smashed, this is Reza from Tehran, Iran.
