    Any of you play this game? It's available in all platforms, and thus far, PC and PSN could play with and against each other. Soon Xbox, PS4 and PC players could be playing together.

    If you haven't played it, check it out sometimes. It's loads of fun, even if you're the anti-soccer type ;)

    I have been reading about this game and am tempted to try it out, I am sure it would be fun for me and my sun. Does it have local coop? Or at least the ability for us to mplay online at the same time?

    From what I know xbox will be able to play with PC also but for now, not all 34 platforms but Microsoft has put the invitation out there that they will now be open to all networks playing vs xbox owners and it is up to the developers along with other systems. So IE: if COD wants xbox vs ps4 online and ps4 oks it, you will be playing vs people on both consoles. That will be awesome.

    I have it for PC, and currently can play against players on the PSN. It's a lot of fun, and feels so much easier on a gamepad than with M&K. I ended up getting an xbox controller just for this game :). http://www.rocketleaguegame.com/game-info/ says it has 2-4 split screen mode and can be played locally, or online. I think it will do exactly what you're asking based on that info, meaning playing 2v2 games against others online while you and your son are teammates.

    This game is by far the game of the year for me. I have it on all 3 platforms. I have games like Division, Far Cry, Just Cause etc. just sitting there because I can't put down this game.

    I can and then can't believe how incredibly fun and challenging this game is at the same time. I feel bad for Splatoon as well, because I really like playing that game. Those two are my games of the year last year, over Witcher and Fallout even.

    I never thought it would be as much fun as it's been. I wanted to play it, and thought I would enjoy it, but not as much as I have. It's normally $20 and I did get it on sale through Steam, but even at $20 I think it's worth every penny for the enjoyment I've gotten out of it. I did put it down some to play Overwatch (closed beta invite, I'd feel guilty not playing it with so many wanting to try it), but will still load it up for a couple quick matches.

    I will warn you that this game is a bit buggy on Xbox at the moment. It can be even hard to log into the server. If you are on the fence at all, I would wait a month or so and let some of the bugs iron out. I can't believe that I am suggesting that you wait...... if you had a PC or PS4, I'd say buy now. If not, wait a month or until they fix the 'No Servers Available' issue.

    lack of servers is always a pain but I can also just play couch co-op with my son. Either way he wont have a full week at home with me for another few weeks so ill likely wait regardless. Thx for heads up.

    It isn't a lack of servers, vs the game itself not connecting to them. The game doesn't like to wake up after it has been turned off or whatever.
