    Accessing Xbox away from home 1st Apr 18 at 2:45 PM
    Hi,

    My son wants to go to his friends house and play on his Xbox there. They both want to play games at th3 same time iykwim. Other than lugging the Xbox and tv over there, does anyone know if there is another way he can access his login? He has a laptop, so is there a way of accessing it without the machine?
    Thanks for any suggestions

    The death of splitscreen gaming is very frustrating, yes the image quality took a hit but had many fun hours with four player on the N64.

    I recently played A Way Out and the only way to play that game is splitscreen co-op (whether couch or online) but for the type of game it was, it worked. Also, the game devs included a feature where you can invite anyone to play with you - even if they don't have the game. So only 1 of you needs to own the game for both to play it.

    There's a few reasons why split screen was removed but that's not one of them, the first one is to push people to online play - some of the first games that were removing split screen play were ones that offered online multiplayer. It makes financial sense of course because having four consoles, four copies of the game and four online subscriptions is better than just one as well as populating the online community.

    With large 4K TVs and consoles outputting 4K, split screen is far more viable than it ever was and even aside the fact FPS games work fine in split screen, there's a lot more games out there than FPS online.
