Turning PC into Xbox?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I have noticed a lot more Microsoft PC games that I would like that are just the PC version of the Xbox game. I have 1 Xbox PC controller (has the USB wireless transmitter/receiver and 1 Xbox remote)... is there a way to obtain "multiplayer" through the PC games if I get a second/third/4th controller? Or do they remove any of this type of multiplayer on a single PC (two+ people playing on 1 Computer) and leave that only to either online multiplayer or the Xbox?

Or is that dependent on the game and is there a indication or marking on it if it does?

I think its game dependant, and mostly because you can go online with others to play.

most console to pc games remove split screen capability for some reason. im not sure if its graphical horse power, or the fact that most pc users have less than 24" view space, so split screen would be useless. could be a combintation of both. if theres no demand for it due to the market, then it wont be coded in.

Well its not usless if you have your HD large TV hooked up to the HDMI port of your video card.... I noticed Dirt 2 does not have it (only online multiplayer). Wonder if there is any markers on the box that would say it does support it..... Now that multi monitor setups are becoming the norm....

Most PC gamers do not have at least one friend who is willing to come over their house and play games on their 'pee-sea', hence split screen multiplayer has very limited adoption on the PC.
