If its preloaded on the 3rd does that mean that pirates can crack it and release it to play before the 9th to play ?

cause that would be some straight up bullshit

Seems like a great deal, but I'd most likely be disappointed if I bought it... I'm not really a MGS fan at all, I only played MGS 4 and I thought there were way too many cutscenes. So, is this the same format, but with different gameplay mechanics? I mean, at least in MGS, the stealth gameplay is great, but if this is just a button-mashing fest with a bunch of QTEs slapped on it, with cutscenes around every corner, it's probably not for me.

This is a promising start. Maybe this is a sign that more Japanese developers are giving PC a chance once again. If this does well, who knows what we'll see next?

Well it's about time, at least they are selling it for a good price considering how long we had to wait.

A year later! Will be good for a purchase when it's cheaper, hopefully they fixed the textures. The game was pretty damn ugly on consoles. Fun, but shallow and short.

Oh, count 'em: all those amazing graphics options. Resolution and AA, revolutionary!


You know that's all we'll get right? Hence why that's all they've mentioned. How about some better textures, as opposed to the hideous blurry mess you get on last gen consoles?

@dante116You can download the game before the release date but you can't play until 9th, this is good for slower connections for example, and for the impatient who can start playing immediately when it's released, no need to start downloading then.

@LordCrash88 Agreed, but it's a good start.  As one of the few people who hasn't played MGS4, I can't justify buying this game just because I presume I'd have no idea what's going on.  The moment MGS4 hits PC though...

@xolivierxcheer up pal. We should be grateful that finally Japanese developers are opening up to the PC gaming community. The pace may be not fast as per you but look at the bright side.
We all are getting a complete package of this game including all DLC's. Who knows what good things will happen tomorrow. Today we are getting MGR. Maybe in near future we may even get full fledged MGS too. So don't get upset.

@xolivierx Come on man... Kojima said on Twitter that the game runs great on the PC and it comes with all DLC and costumes for 13 Euro :D What more do you want ???

@sohail5566If you are a fan of the quirkyness and dialogue-heavy nature of the Metal Gear series, then yes. The game is intentionally not too serious.

@stage4saiyan It was Platinum they make fun games who cares how shallow it was sure it was short but it was tons of fun people forget games are about fun.

@ladies_man_xxxDon't forget the year delay.


Of course it's going to be cheaper with more stuff and less bugs.

@Jaxith To be fair, you don't need to have -that- much knowledge with MGS4 to play MGR, there are references to MGS4 and a couple of the enemy types were in MGS4 first, but it's a pretty blatant spin-off that retcons a part of the end to have Raiden as the main character. Just a heads up.

@tinyname@Jaxith@LordCrash88 I don't recall saying anything about waiting for it.  I don't own a PS3, but good for you, owning one for the past five plus years.  We're all very impressed.
