Solid Snake on silver screen

Kojima Productions to show three-hour movie of Metal Gear Solid 3 in Tokyo; presentation made of cutscenes, in-game footage.

TOKYO--In Japan, Konami is holding a special theatrical event to promote its upcoming game, Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence. The company will be showing a three-and-a-half-hour movie of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater at the Oribe Hall in Tokyo, and series creator Hideo Kojima will be on hand to make some opening remarks.

Before MGS fans blow their top, they should know that the movie is just in-game footage, and it's not a premiere of the series' long-rumored feature film. On the other hand, it won't just be some dude playing the game on a giant screen. The movie features a lot of new elements from MGS3, including new cutscenes, narration, and remastered sound. Director Kojima previously stated at the Tokyo Game Show that its creation took the developers about the same time as editing a real film.

Konami has opened a registration Web page for the event on its official site, and 80 lucky winners will each be able to bring a guest to the show. The movie will take place on the night of December 22--the same date as Subsistence's release. Fans who can't make it to the event can still check out the movie by picking up a Japanese copy of Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence, as the first shipment includes a third disc that features the film.

For more details on Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence, check GameSpot's coverage from the Tokyo Game Show 2005.

3 hours of boring footage ? isn't that the main criticism levelled at most MGS games? mr kojima he has sense of humour after all.

So.....it's just in-game footage? Um, why not just play the game? This has got to be the lamest thing I've ever heard. Thanks for nothing Konami. You and Sony can have you're three hour long episode of Cinematech.

But anyways I noticed people in this topic thinking this was an actual movie. Or at least something like Advent Children. Read the New Story again. Its just all the cutscenes from MGS3 edited together with some new ones to create a 3 hour movie. Which is awesome if you are a fan of MGS3. Most people seem to hate cutscenes so this is probably hell to them. The cutscenes to me are probably the only reason I go back and play every MGS game about twice a year. Now I don't have to play the game over and over! I can just watch it!

Ugh these damn headlines keep tricking me. Anyone who read about MGS3 Subsistance recently knows about this.

Fansubs are ok (as someone predicted), but Snake without Hayter's voice isn't Snake.

That sounds like the ill move, hopefully the movie footage will get here in the us because I'm a metal gear fan.

Hmmm If you played the game or not, would watching the movie make sense or would it jump around like a pogo stick?? the plot i mean.

I dont like the idea i would rather watch a three hour live action movie.

I'm hoping that they bring they sell the movie in America seperately as a DVD. You see, I played MGS1 and 2 on the PC, and I don't have a PS2(nor will I get one as the PS3 is upon us). Since, MGS3 probably isn't coming on the PC after the dismal sales of MGS2 PC version, it would be nice to at least see the story(which I heard is very good), before MGS4 arrives. However, I really don't see the point of seeing the movie if you've already played the game. That would put me to sleep!

The fact that they are making a remixed version of MGS3 and having a 3 hour cut-scene movie seems cool and all that but if you already have MGS3, I don't se the point in getting substances unless you'r a BIG MGS fan.

3 hours, wow, you would have to be a die hard fenatic to sit through that. It was hard enough watching "The Lord of the Rings" movies for three hours without getting distracted.

That sounds really cool. Hopefully if and when Metal Gear will hit the big screens, that they won't screw it up like they seem to do with every other video game movie.
