Really looking forward to this, I'm hoping for an MGS5, MG 1 n 2 remake, Old Snake n Raiden in PSABR and ummm a surprise because that's all I can think of.

Capt-FuzzyPants  +   1261d ago
I usually don't care, but do you have a problem with using the word "it." Cause you made the same mistake on another comment on this page. Just sayin.

Ayway, I hope the remake MGS1. I've never played any Metal Gear games, but I'm interested in them. I didn't get the most recen cause it doesn't include the first one and I want to play all of them in order, since I'm told the story is intricate and can be confusing. So hopefully it gets remade.

"MGS5 = WII-U Exclusive" -> mad?.jpg


Must be MGS5 multi no doubt, there is nothing bigger than that coming from Konami...

A next generation MGS5 will probably get an announcement trailer. Kojima has been saying he wants to show off the Fox Engine, so that seems most likely.

MGS5 PS Exclusive. Please be so.....that abortion MG Rising makes me worried of a MGS multiplat game!

A MGS5 game on 360 now would be like 17 discs anyways ... why even bother?
2v1  +   1260d ago
is mgs4 for 360
zeeshan  +   1260d ago
The MGS4 was probably the last PS3 exclusive MGS game. I pretty sure that the announcement will be of MGS5 for Wii U, PS3 and 360. I don't care if it requires Konami to put the game on multiple disks for 360. The quality should be nothing short of what we saw in MGS4.

I hope that 360, Wii U and PS3 gamers will get to go on another fantastic adventure with Solid Snake!

ALL I CARE ABOUT IS GETTING A NEW MGO (Metal Gear Online), he just recently shut down its servers so fans of it are heartbroken. We need it to come back or at least a new one. Other than that, we dont care. I love the mgs campaigns, but i love me some mgo too.
Whitefeather  +   1261d ago
He didn't do it, Konami did.
Who  +   1260d ago
I agree.

Me, along with many buddies (most of which I met through MGO) miss it! I hope they bring it back maybe as a standalone?

After the recent trophy patch, the way the wording was for the MGO data was a little suspicious. I mean, there were so many warnings about the MGO data being deleted before installing the patch, then afterwards, 'The MGO data has been deleted' or something to that effect. It was like a shot to the face. I just hope it was foreshadowing some form of MGO that can start anew with better servers and log-in system.

There is no other game I can find that can replace or even match the gaming experience I've had with MGO. I wish I'd taken pictures.

doogiebear  +   1260d ago
Then gets dissapointed because he over hypes every announcement before it's made.

How will mgs "shake up the whole industry?". I LOVE MGS and MGO, but that statement is bold considering that one company's game is unlikely to have an effect on other game companies.

UNLESS: He were to say it was coming for PS4. That could possibly shake up the entire industry only because an announcement like that would be the first ever SHOWN ps4 game and the first legal official announcement of a PS4.

But other than that, I dont see how 1 game will shake up the Rest of the industry.

Not likely, there's too much data in MGS4 to make it into an Xbox game. It'd end up being 5-6 discs for a four year old game that probably wouldn't shift as many units as a new game.

It wouldn't be worth the effort.
MrBeatdown  +   1260d ago

An announcement of a next-gen MGS would be a big deal, regardless of which next-gen platforms it's on.

The first actual footage of something targeting that next-gen hardware would be pretty damn huge.

Something like that is the only thing that would actually "shake the industry" if you ask me. It actually has industry-wide implications. It means it's time for the industry to start showing what we all know is happening behind the scenes. Either that, or it's some revolutionary change (at least to Kojima) to the MGS formula.

Something as simple as a port of a four year old game isn't that big of a deal. It's just an excuse for fanboys to argue, not a reason for the whole industry to take notice.

But then again, these things are usually overhyped. Kojima could be announcing a new collection of MGS-themed stickers.
SnakePayne  +   1261d ago
yup, one of announcements will be metal gear solid 4 subsistence for x360 & pc.

MasterCornholio  +   1261d ago
I guess 360 owners will have to change loads of disks.


Anyways on a more serious note I don't think that MGS4 will come to any other platform.

I expect Kojima to announce the following.

1. New character for All Stars
2. Zone of Enders 3
3. MGS5
4. A new game for the Vita based on the Metal Gear franchise.

Jeez, "people" like you still resort to the lazy having-to-change-disc trolling attack on the 360? That's pretty sad.

Revolver_X_  +   1260d ago
@Old Mcgroin

Sad that its fact? Xbox Disc hold 10GB, but can only use 9GBs. Hideo had to postpone MGS4 because the 25GB blu ray disc was too small. MGS4 uses a 50GB blu ray disc, this translates to a 5 disc Xbox game. Microsoft will not cover costs after 2 discs. So disc 3-5 would come out of Konami's pocket. Not profitable. All this was talked about when MGS4 came out. How quickly they forget. By all means keep dreaming.
mynd  +   1260d ago
Wasn't Final Fantasy XIII larger than MGS4 on the PS3, just sayin.....
rezzah  +   1260d ago
that wouldn't be a good thing for Konami.

If a game requires 3 disc or more, the production of that third disc + will come out of the publisher's pockets.
mynd  +   1260d ago
Production of all the discs come out of their pocket, what on earth are you talking about?
Are you referring to the myth in regards to Rage and royalties?

""It was a simple kind of miscommunication. Microsoft does not charge a royalty per disc, but there is a cost of goods that goes along with manufacturing."

lol Kojima isn't ND....Kojima simply want to FOCUS his work on one system to make his games, but this will change now and he'll bring his next game be it Metal Gear or any game on MS console, Nintendo and probably PC this sure this will burn those fanboys including you, just wait for the news!

oh and take a look at this:

oh as for the awesome bluray... i would rather swap discs than waiting half an hour for the game to install then wait five minute for installs between every chapter -__-

Umm, you could do that, if you even owned a PS3. Except that it's a 15 minute install once, or 2 minute installs between the 5 chapters. Why don't you get your facts straight before you start spewing your BS the next time, m'kay?

Locksus  +   1261d ago
Unlikely. Hideo Kojimas said at MS' E3 2009 conference that they'll be bringing the MGS franchise to the Xbox so MGS5 will probably be multiplatform.
BigStef71  +   1261d ago
When he said that he said he was talking about the next mgs installment which was supposed to be rising when it still had the mgs name. Even that douche Don Mattrick tried to make it seem snake was coming to 360 and hideo responded "Don I didn't say anything about solid snake"

Do u have source of him actually saying that? If that is the case why was mgs4 never released on 360?

Locksus  +   1261d ago
@BigStef 71
They've already brought MGS HD collection to the 360 and MGR is coming.

They're not bringing the MGS4 to the 360 because it doesn't have bluray so it would take far too many discs and Sony and KojiPro might have an exclusive deal on MGS4, I don't know.

But they've already brought multiple MGS games to the 360 so why stop here? It's not a PS exclusive franchise anymore and they'll make more profit by going multiplat.
Locksus  +   1261d ago
Seriously guys? care to even explain why you disagreed with me?

Oh, is that the sound of butthurt I'm hearing?
BigStef71  +   1261d ago
Ok one of those games is last gen and the other is not even being made by Kojima himself. Kojima had to use a full 50GB dual layer for mgs4 so what makes you think that he would not have to do the same for mgs5 which could possibly be a bigger and that means if its on 360 then we are talking about a shit ton of discs. Also the game would be dumped down like FF13 and FF13-2 were since it would be multiplatform. I know the new game would use the fox engine which was built for multiplatform but that doesn't mean the game itself will be. Just look at the gears of war series only on 360 built on a multiplatform engine. So I have to disagree with your response. I personally think mgs5 will be a ps3 exclusive cuz kojima loves playstation and every major mgs game has come out exclusively or first on the playstation consoles
abzdine  +   1261d ago
bringing Metal Gear and not SOLID.
It was MG: Rising he was talking about after it was called Metal gear SOLID: Rising and he said himself he didn't SAY ANYTHING ABOUT SOLID SNAKE during that same conference.

don't talk without proof

Locksus : You say yourself MGS4 is exclusive PS3 because of space issues. Do you really think MGS5 will require less space ? I really doubt it.

I'll even say that what will shock the industry is that MGS5 will be made with Naughty Dog's help after Kojima went to pay them a visit last month.

I think it'd have to affect the entire industry. So perhaps the Fox Engine will be available to other developers? Or something to do with similar motives? I highly doubt he has anything to say about a new console.

Perhaps he is showing off Vita/PS3 things that haven't been done just yet, who knows.

As nice as that would be, i think it'd be better to just be vita exclusive because people wont buy it just for ports.
Hicken  +   1260d ago
Why is it that any time someone brings up a bonus for the Vita, people go, "No one will buy it JUST for X?"

Seems like they always "conveniently" forget that there's X, Y, Z, Q, T, L, A, R, and O as well. I mean it's got or will have half the freakin alphabet, but everything else disappears when one letter is talked about. Sheesh.

So maybe they won't buy it "just for ports." But ports, exclusives, features, PS1 classics, and so on? Maybe, just MAYBE that'll be enough to get some people interested?
nukeitall  +   1260d ago

"Maybe, just MAYBE that'll be enough to get some people interested?"

That is what Sony is hoping for! However, it doesn't seem to be working and this time PS Vita don't have the brand power to save them like the PS3.
