I can imagine this from Konami/Platinum Games right now:
"HUEHUEHUE. January 22... But I didn't specify WHAT time! 11:59 Hawaiian time it is!"

I just can't get over how dumb the name is.  It's not revenge, it's not vengeance, it just had to be revengeance...

great i never got ZOE HD so now i will have a chance to play this and see what's it like before i decide to pre-order it or not

off topic enough with hate guys Kojima picked Platinum games to do this this game personaly as he and his team couldn't do it but he's still over seeing the game, his team has still done the story and design for Raiden and are still in overall control of the game

i for one think it looks good but i still want to try it first to see if it's worth getting day one

Did they fix the PS3 demo or is this the same crap that came with ZOE that didn't work?  lmao

As a 33 year old gamer this just looks boring to me. I'm guessing that after 30 minutes the game is rinse and repeat until you clock it.

"... But not the Wii U", give over people! No one is gonna stop, and delay a product whilst making even more comprises. It's silly to expect people to do so, and the Wii U only now has caught up to the capability of the 360 and PS3, so developers will have to find a way to develop on the system. A system that hasn't been received all that well.

And the Wii U is a MASSIVE gimmick. No one wants to rapidly swing their remote in the air, for the entire length of the game. It ruined Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword, and it would ruin this.

Snake isn't going to be around forever and after seeing videos for this game I am warming up to Raiden a lot and the over-the-top action is similar to the original DMC so I am excited for this game and look forward to the demo.

Metal Gear without Snake is like making a Rocky movie without Sly.

I'm one of those who own Zone of the Enders HD Xbox 360 version and I can tell you that it will be the same Demo and from my experence, it was fun, the Blade mode for cutting was well done, but the Demo was so short and the boss fight is just as if I was playing MGS. I'm glad he pick Platinum games for this and I like Platinum.

@KillzoneSnake You're confused. This is Metal Gear. It's not Metal Gear SOLID. There's a difference. Metal Gear is a universe of games. Metal Gear Solid is Snake's story

It's a Spin-off, not a sequal and as for me I'm looking forward to MGR.

@SirApathetic005 @JustArtificial i loved Skyward Sword i thought it worked really well and as for Twilight Princess i got that on the Gamecube as that was it was made for plus it meant the entire game wasn't flipped horizontally

@The_Gump @DanteReal69 Uh...they're both highly stylized, over-the-top hack and slash games with moody protagonists, excessive violence, and a combo system. You can't really ask for better grounds for comparison.
