This could be considered as a very smart marketing move if they plan to reveal the MGS5 cards that were once held very close to the chest at this August 30 unveiling.

interesting...

Yeah, i think kojiPro will announce something on AUG 30. Why? because they cut their online servers and they're going to release MGS4 with trophies again.

While I agree with the idea that something regarding Metal Gear Solid's future will be announced soon (especially with the MGS4 patch coming and the lack of other new MGS titles out in the past 12-18 months) I don't think anything regarding a new title will be announced so soon after this patch is released. I think they'll release it, let people get back into the game (and have a look at just how many people pick up the Best version and how many people go back to the game for trophies) and then maybe early Winter we'll hear something. At least that's my take on things.

Any MGS5 release will likely be released on next generation consoles. Those hasn't been announced yet, so I doubt a serious release will be announced.

so can i start my old save and play the game from beginning to end will i get the trophies? or do we have to start a brand new game and start from scratch?

either way its not like i am complaining i was gonna start playing mgs4 few weeks back than heard about upcoming patch so decided to wait

You need to create a brand new saving. This is due to the saving including the trophy coding so the old one is useless if you wish to get trophies.

I don't mind replaying it at all, I love the codenames it gives you when beating the game.

That's good. Though I wouldn't be so devastated if it did erase the old save data. Sure I might lose a special item or something, but MGS4 was one of my first PS3 games, which was a long time ago (6 years now?). Not just MGS, but with most games I usually just start over, after a long dry spell.

Final Fantasy games are infamous for not finishing them. Regardless on how far I went, I would restart them. Certain moments in games where you need to do something specific. After a dry spell, you're not going to remember much about what's going on.

LOL I do the same thing. Can't remember how many times I've played FFVII over because I go awhile without playing and can't remember what I was doing and would just rather start over.

The exact thing happened to me in FF IX. I was on the third disc and I left it too long. Forgot what I was meant to be doing. Heart broken.
ZeroChaos  +   840d ago
I'm still gonna delete my data and start again, I don't want any possible problems happening if I keep the old data.

Whitefeather  +   840d ago
No the US disc will download the US patch only. Same for each region.

"cant wait till momday!!!!!!"

Unless you live in Japan, it appears you'll have to wait for the north america patch.

No trying to be rude, just trying to prevent a massive disappointment.

Well worth another playthrough after 7 or 8 times. I love this series, can wait for the patch
boybato  +   840d ago
This i don't mind replaying however it was quite disappointing that i needed to replay mgshd for the vita as I had my game saves before the trans faring patch.

Does it have to be a New Game or will a New Game + count, that's what I'm wondering. I'm assuming New Game.

You need to make a brand new saving.
