Starhawk Will Support Combo Co-Op

Good news, combo co-op fans!  Sony's exclusive third-person space shooter, Starhawk will support split screen and online play!  Co-Optimus community member, Kevin Clough, recently posited this question on a PlaystationBlog article concerning the nature of local and online co-op:

Can someone at Sony or Lightbox confirm whether co-op will support splitscreen and online at the same time? I want to be able to play the four player co-op mode with two copies of the game and my two PS3s.

That's a great question.  Luckily for Kevin (and us) PlayStationBlog's Chuck Lacson got back to him:

Co-op will support online split-screen. :)

Huzzah!  That's what we like to hear!  Wait, there's more!  According to the Starhawk forums the game will also support dual PlayStation Network logins, so your local co-op buddy won't get shafted on XP and character progress.

For more co-op action, check out this video from IGN at the Game Developer's Conference.  The vid features some explosive co-op footage.  Looks like tanks are a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield.

Starhawk will launch exclusively on the Playstation 3 on May 8th.  It supports two player local co-op, four player online co-op, and combo co-op.

Thanks to Kevin Clough for the tips!
