Nope.

I played some 2v2s on XBL with 2k3. Fun for a while, but...meh.

Maybe they fixed the wr problem. Now you can throw to the wr whatever route he runs.





Naw, it was'nt that. It was just when you're playing WR and a friend is playing QB. You'll be doing whatever to get away from the DB(s) and 9 times out of ten you wont follow the route cause you feel if you add your own little touch to it(like stopping, cutting in, then cutting out) then you can get open. And your friend who is the QB wont annouce that he's throwing to you until the last second. An you're not paying attention to him cause you're doing what you're doing. So a second before it gets to you, he tells you, then you jumped and/or stoped and are out of position to make the catch. Ethier that, or he'll never throw you the ball cause you were'nt open.

But I have'nt did that since 2001 so I have no idea what its like now. And plus, we played gainst the cpu. Playing 4 opposing team players might prove to be fun since everyone is bound to make mistakes or bad reads, or missed tackles, etc. It might prove as fun. Now, how are you gonna find a person who has 3 guys oveer at the same time you do?

That sure would be cool.

However, I only like playing coop football on defense... offense doesn't really connect right... if only you could run your own routes with the QB throwing it there, that would be a little better.

Would the FPM mode make you locked on a player or what?

Lot of people go online because as they get older, they can't have people over for multiplayer games. At least not as often as they used to.

So to carry the convenience of online gaming to the next level, the thing would be to support multiplayer online from multiple consoles. NHL Rivals is said to support up to 10 players from 6 different consoles. That means you get cooperative and competitive play.

Racing games allow this so it should be possible for sports games, at least for say 4 players on up to 4 different consoles.

Football would be hard because of more objects or players required on screen plus the coordination problems mentioned by others. But you could use the voice so that you communicate with only your teammates or to everyone in the game.

Other sports like hoops and hockey and soccer would work well, because they're more "flow" games. Even baseball would work out because you don't have to have both guys on same team be active at the same time, except on defense and maybe with one guy batting and the other guy controlling the runners on base.

Well yeah but the problem in baseball is when you're up to bat or pitching, then everyone is watching and relying on you, so if you give up a homer or if you hit into a 6-4-3 double play, you are ashamed...

Yeah and when you do something right, you celebrate more with a teammate than if you're playing by yourself. You'd high-five them if they were there next to you. They should have user-controlled celebrations where you can do different celebrations like high-five, elbow-knocks, chest bumps, etc.
