Console gaming is all about split-screen, local co-op experiences. Destiny, and most new games that are being made lately are taking away from that core goal. If people really want to play an MMO type game without split screen options, they should be gaming on a PC, a system that is meant to have only one person play at a time.
It's funny to me that the consoles all support 4 controllers as a standard now, but the game developers and companies are ruining the console market by not supporting local co-op anymore. Especially 4 players on one console. We have HUGE TVs now so we don't have to squint at our tiny division of the screen. Lets bring back split-screen Destiny, you will make history if you can pull it off.
All true console gamers want split screen to play with their friends when they come over, it's what we do.
