Its on sale at the playstation store and I'm considering buying it to play with my brothers.
How is the local co-op?
I think local co-op is only two players. So if you have multiple brothers, you guys would have to take turns. Don't take my word for it, though - somebody needs to back me up here.
It's a total blast co-op, though. Difficulty ramps up nicely a couple hours in.
As mentioned, the menu stuff is a bit annoying, but otherwise it is cool. And yeah, splitscreen only works for 2 people. If you want a full 4 person party, you will need 4 ps3s and do it over a lan or online, which is honestly better, but not practical if you dont already have them.
If you end up digging the game, consider that Gearbox has said that Borderlands 2 will fix the splitscreen UI, and will allow two people playing on the same console to go and play online so you could have a full party. Cant wait for that.
Alright thanks guys. Just one thing I'm confused about, how does splitscreen work? Does it have its own profile or does the second player chose a single player profile? And can I use the character that I use to play with my brother is singleplayer?
