To Repeat: No GTAIV Split-Screen Multiplayer
We figure you have more than enough Grand Theft Auto IV information by now, but as there are millions interested in the title, more questions continue to arise. The MTV Multiplayer blog has noted that many gamers are asking about split-sceen multiplayer in GTAIV, despite most every source - including us - having said in the past this option isn't available.
But we have to agree with the MTV blog; we keep seeing similar questions, and it's a good idea to clarify this once and for all. If you're planning to sit down with a friend and play some multiplayer GTAIV missions, think again; Rockstar themselves has made this abundantly clear. Look, with a city this size, does it really seem logical to have a single system split Liberty City into two different parts at once? Remember, you can go anywhere at any time in most all multiplayer modes available...imagine trying to implement that in split-screen. Besides, the online multiplayer option is a better choice, anyway, so what are y'all complaining about?
GTAIV is going to offer an incredibly well-rounded online multiplayer experience; to limit it to split-screen would be both silly and even counterproductive.
