Once upon a time, split-screen co-op was the best we could hope for, but nowadays it feels like a rare treat. Gearbox is in the giving mood, confirming that Borderlands 2 will have the fabled cooperative feature, and that two players on the same TV can go online!
"The only situation you can not do is split-screen plus split-screen because you need a host," said Gearbox's Steve Gibson. "And a split-screen guy uses a lot of CPU, so he can not be the host."
Borderlands 2 will also improve the user interface for split-screen players, meaning you can upgrade characters without having to excessively scroll through information. Couch friends, unite!
