I'm unfortunately an Iranian. here PS3 games are NOT cheap (blue-ray) and so I bought X360..otherwise I'm a BIG FAN of MGS...so I'm happy they're finally realising x360 version and I hope I see Snake at least at one tiny scene !! and PS3 owners ! don't be so cruel ! there were so many games for xbox that went to ps3 ! I'm sure there are SO MANY xbox owners who love MGS as me...CAN'T WAAAAIIIT
@Sorrow_42 Before recently I wasn't very well-acquainted with MGS, and I hadn't seen any PS3 version. All the same, this game doesn't seem to be in relation to the story of Snake, Liquid, and The Patriots (like the original four games), so I probably won't get it. It'll still be awesome, of course!
@FarisTheKnight well, at least snake is not in it, the 360 will never take snake :), and Hideo is not putting a large input into the game, like he did when he was making MGS4
I am glad that this game is going to be multi-platform and that 360 users will get to experience metal gear solid...but unfortunately..like all multi-platform game..the graphics wont be as good as an exclusive game..not being a ps3 fanboy..but the game must have had to be toned down a bit(graphics,landscape etc) to be able to fit it on a 360 disk ...
I'll keep on waiting for the day we have MGS4 on the 360 Not gonna happen the 360 disk will not fit mgs4
wait! wait! wait! matte hell yo...this is going to be multi-console??? why the hell why??? we just got black balled again same sh*t went down with ACE-COMBAT WTH!!! is going on is money all that these guys consider is that why they want to ruin a perfectly good franchise for the sake of multi platforming this is really bullsh*t! i feel betrayed...:( sniff*
MGS4 is my favorite PS3 game of all time...I have a feeling MGSR will be #2. No way they make it hack 'n slash...I'm sure it will be the same old setup with the option to use the sword when you're out of ammo.
I think this game will be before the events of 4. I just hope it isnt a hack and slash game, maybe a little sneaking involved, you cant completley ditch the roots.
I was so happy with the way MGS4 ended with him being with his new family happily ever after, PLEASE dont ruin it!
The Snake is done with wars. I hope the series will continue to be fun and entertaining, but MGS without Snake is not really and MGS anymore. Its just another game. Snake was the spirit of this game throughout the years. It will take a long time for real fans to adjust and continuation of MGS will just get lost eventually in all the multitudes of new oncoming games. Good bye, Snake. You were a good companion.
I agree with Pat Uno Sete Uno here...it doesn't matter how old you are. A good game is a good game, and when I was 10 if i liked a game it was a good game. One of the reasons gaming appealed so much to me as a kid, and even now as an adult is that it lacks (or should I say should lack) a sense of pompousness (gamers shouldn't put down other gamers, common) ...my 8 bit adventures are not comparable to my PS3 or Xbox Gaming experiences, they are extremely different words and I love them both. And as Far as Metal Gear goes I didn't like the NES versions that came out (which Kojima had nothing to do with) and I unfortunately never got to the the fist MSX2 games (and if you did play those Ultrama I envy you) ...the MGS games for every generation PlayStation I find to be beyond excellent.And I think its Awesome that Madddog can enjoy the games on the PS2 like MSG2 that came out before he was in that demographic. Its great he can enjoy that game and that he is into a Series that really keeps on giving ...As for this new game, I wait impatiently for it, Raiden was awesome in MSG2 and I expect greatness from this game.
just to let you guys know theirs not going to be another mgs sequel mgs4 is supposed to be the last one so this is just a game where you play as raiden either as a prequel or you play as him around the events of mgs4
I liked MGS2, even though it was sadly lacking in Snake. And besides, Raiden was way cooler in 4 than he was in 2, and I'm assuming this occurs around the same time as 4, just judging by Raiden having the same costume? @Ultrama666: You can be a fan of a series without playing every single game. It's hard to get your hands on the original two now. Quit with the superiority complex.
Metal Gear Solid 2, and Metal Gear Solid 4 but the psp one is a 10 out of 10 DZINE da ultimate hip hop gamer has the preview it not out till june
@ Maddog41594, Sir I am 23 and I played every Metal Gear. When I say every metal gear I mean every last one. You younger games are a very sad Generation to me. Game designers dumb down games for you kids. I miss the old Metal Gear yes Metal gear not solid. The story was text based and still amazing. It was like playing an upgraded version of a mud. I know I will come off like a jerk. Yet I just don't like when you younger gamers speak. You have no idea what a good game is or why its a good game. Then claim your a fan even though you skipped the first three metal gears. That is like watching Die hard 3 and never watching the first two. Its just unforgivable. So next time you claim your a hardcore fan at least play from the beginning.
FYI I am 15 and have played every Metal Gear game available to me. I played the first solid demo, I own Twin Snakes, Metal Gear Solid 2, and Metal Gear Solid 4. I've beaten Metal Gear Solid 3. Although I still believe that a good background on Raiden is needed. Snake is done with war, as said in the last game, and Raiden was a main part of it. Raiden was even told to get on with his life and to live. Now I believe this is before the ending of MGS4, but either way I think this'll be a very interesting game. P.S. This series is definitely the best series out there. It's got the fundamentals of a video game but the story shows everything that an actual BOOK would. I've been very touched by this series and would love to see more like it.
Who cares about "the young bloods"? MGS shouldn't change just because of the new audience. Kojima should be catering to the older folks who have been playing MGS since the NES/Playstation 1 days. We got them to where they are today! If little kids want to participate they need to go back and replay the older games first.
@joelwyncott lol man you really thought that they would leave PS3 out??Now I am surprized (in a good way) that it is also for PC as well!He crearly said this is by new bloods and just thinking stealth with sword and lighting action man....I'm soooo going to buy this!!And as Outnertia said this is not a MGS made by Kojima and also many of us know that Kojima will pass on the franchise I hope they make a good work...
I'm really glad that they're still having it on the PS3. I would be really frustrated if they only made it on the 360 . . .
