Console Minecraft uses split screen if you play with multiple players on one console. Since Windows 10 edition is practically the same game, it also has this option.

I think Windows 10 edition also allows to play with USB controllers. So you could for example play with one person on keyboard and mouse, three on controllers and a split screen.

I did not confirm that splitscreen actually works, it likely doesn't. There is this bug report for it.

    I've plugged in 2 Xbox 360 Wired Controllers and there was no option to start a splitscreen game

  • Have you restarted the game? If that doesn't work, then maybe I was wrong and there's no controller support. Maybe it's just a dead button that's supposed to start split screen, but it isn't actually implemented. Commented Jan 18, 2018 at 8:03
  • I've tried it multiple times, I think you're right about it being a dead button

    The experts say that the buttons are the same on all platforms. Splitscreen might work, but probably doesn't. Commented Jan 18, 2018 at 16:38
