I have been trying to create a LAN party between two PS3 consoles in Call of Duty MW3, and I succeeded but it allows me only 2 players per console.

My question is: Is there a way to create a LAN party between two PS3 consoles that allows us to connect 4 players per console? (as in Halo, for example)

Doesn't Call of Duty have a max of two players in multiplayer offline? Why would that be any different on a LAN? – Jeff Mercado Aug 20 '12 at 6:33
The more graphically demanding the game, the more they will limit the players per console. – CyberSkull Aug 20 '12 at 8:42
@JeffMercado it allows more then two players in multiplayer offline mode. It allows 4... – Nick122 Aug 20 '12 at 13:07

Modern Warfare 3 has the following multiplayer specifications:

Max players for online splitscreen (same console) - 2
Max players for LAN (same console) - 2
Max players for offline splitscreen - 4

For your question in specific, the max players for an offline LAN is 18 players total, but unfortunately, the maximum numbers of players per console is 2; therefore, there is no way to create a 4 vs 4 LAN party. You would need 4 TVs/PS3s.
