My kids have an XBox 360 and they want to play GTA 5 at the same time on the same console. Is this possible? They also have XBox Live if that makes a difference. They can't figure it out and I sure can't. If it is possible how do you do it?

    For what it's worth: the only GTA game I know, that supports multiplayer on the same console is GTA: San Andreas, and even then it's quite hard to find the icon that launches the multiplayer aspect of the game. – Nolonar Jan 26 '14 at 15:30

GTA 5 doesn't have an offline multiplayer. This means you cannot play split screen with more than one player. I wish there was an easy way to fix this but really its how the game was designed.

Its possible to play online multiplayer in the same house but you need 2 consoles and 2 screens and 2 copies of the game.

Sorry for the bad news bears.
