Game Creation with XNA/Networking/Split-Screen
The simplest way to create a multiplayer game is the split screen. For two players that means that the screen (TV) is split in half (vertically or horizontally) and one displays the view for player one, and the other the view for player two. Since you can connect up to four gamepads to an XBox, hypothetically, up to four players could play this way. However, dispite what some commercials may suggest it is not really all that much fun to play this way.
