Plus there's the eastern vs. western market viewpoints to consider. They could be looking more at the gameplay aspects, and not heavily factoring the server issues. While in the west we pride our multi player, and its even causing Giant Bomb and Game Informer to hold off on numbers for Titanfall, because of Battlefield 4."

MGS is a different beast. If famitsu loves it, I'm encouraged.

Do you expect MGS to suffer from server issues?

Oh no. Mi bad. I forgot to clarify. I was referring to their BF4 score when talking about server issues. Figured MGS was mainly just SP as usual.

I've little idea what's going on with Ground Zeroes but I believe Kojima, Shinjikawa (did I say that right?) and the gang will stick with what they can solidly deliver, rather than deal with tacked on features that may or may not hold up.

It has no multiplayer, server issues are a nonissue for Ground Zeroes. I've heard it has some leaderboards and things like that, but nothing that's going to break the game if the server goes down.

Encouraging. Can't wait for Tuesday. Already took work off!

I'm not sure if MGS Ground Zeroes is even worth it, considering this is just a demo/prologue of sorts and that the campaign apparently only takes a few hours to complete. I see this more as a RENTAL than a PURCHASE.

Nice. I'm really looking forward to this game as I'm a big MGS fan and also a big Kiefer Sutherland fan as well.

Are there any bonuses for pre ordering this on PSN? And what is rubber banding in BF4 the dude in the video was talking about?

@HipHopBeats:

Rubberbanding is a phenomenon that creates the illusion of teleporting. A player will repeatedly teleport back and forth between their current position and a previous one on the path they're moving along.
