So if you're in splitscreen, both classes don't gain experience?

P1 gains exp.  P2 gets screwed.  From what I read in another thread they are working on a patch.

Im also hoping a patch comes out soon, the stats yes, i want to see that, but also the problem where the online and offline stats not syncing is annoying me, cuz im always seeing my rank change...

It's on their list of known issues, so I would assume they will put out a patch for it.

From our friends at IG:

 

  • Player 2 stats in split-screen mode are not saved. This is a PSN side issue. We would like to allow you to log in two PSN accounts, and when the PS3 firmware supports this, we may be able to fix this.

 

 

I wouldn't hold my breath.  As LBP proved doing it on a single system is pretty simple.  Logging in to a totally separate account seems cool, but hard to do well.  For instance, what if you go to a bud's house log in to your account to play R2 and your significant other is logged in with the 'home' unit?  Who gets priority?  What happens when another one of this guy's friends comes over and is able to hijack your account?  Just playing Devil's Advocate.

Or worse... What if the friend who wants to come play player 2 is an XBOX person and doesn't even have a PSN account to log in to?

 

Saving it locally and then syncing it to a leaderboard IF the local account is tied to a PSN account seems like a better solution... and this is what LittleBigPlanet does, right?

 

Unfortunately, I think this will take a lot of work. :manmad:
