You're Right. (Gaming)

I honestly don't know. All I know is, in the specific case of split-screen co-op in Infinite, a representative of a video game company told us, "We can't do it" and a random gamer told us, "We did it, here's how to do it". I don't think that 343i is willingly trying to screw us over—at least, I hope not. But I would have liked to hear an explanation on how that happened, back then.

I am no longer in any inner circle that gets to hear how the sausage is made, but I'd be willing to bet real money that the testing team found enough points of failure that the feature didn't make the cert cut. The fact that a random gamer says it works, for him and his friends, means NOTHING. It's a feature that has to work for MILLIONS of people, all the time, not tens of people, for a while.

And you can thank folks like Crowbcat for being the reason you'll never get an honest answer, unfortunately. Because I can GUARANTEE that anything that they say will eventually be included in a video, out of context, as proof that they don't know what the fuck they're doing, or that they're liars.
