Has The PS4 Just Been Shown?

MasonicGamer.com: Reports are in from attendees of this evening’s Metal Gear Solid 25th anniversary event in Japan. The highlight was a new MGS game and that game was Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes. Could we have seen the PS4 in action?

Reports state that

“Just saw stuff we can’t tweet about? Will give impressions later.” & “Demo of “Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes”, started w cutscene (all realtime), went into gameplay, open world, night, raining, base. AMAZING”

We reached out to the some of the attendes to find out what was seen..... (Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Next-Gen)

Update Gamespot has said: "The demo itself was running on a PC and was played using an Xbox 360 controller. Nothing was spared in terms of detailing and fidelity, from the lighting and shadows during Snake's sneaking bits to the vehicles and character models in motion during the heavy rain. So far the game and its engine was designed with the PS3 and Xbox 360 in mind, but Kojima stated that the engine itself will cater itself for next gen consoles."

From what I understand they showed it on a current gen PC and the target platforms are the current gen systems (PS3/360)

The demo was shown on PC but could this have been a PS4 dev Kit?
TrevorPhillips  +   1095d ago
Could've been and not only that, it was running on "Fox Engine".

Actually, demo was running on a high end PC and no platforms were mentioned:


And if the game looks anything like that first released pic, this gen can't pull that off.

Konami will demo the high end version for now, they know by the time of release the new consoles will be out, but they will still have a lower version out for PS3 and 360.

the same strategy Ubi are using with marketing Watch Dogs, i think other publishers will do the same, release games on the new consoles and the old.

Current-gen PCs are WAY better than the PS3 and 360. We're talking almost 7 years in terms of specs evolving. A "current-gen" PC would pretty much destroy the PS3/360 and could easily be close to what the new consoles will have.

Rumors suggests that the "PS4/Xbox720" don´t will be as powefull as the current PC we already have today.
But maybe Konami is cheating us and running the new MGS in a PS4. Who knows.

I would love for this to come out on PC. Think of how awesome it would look. Since they were using current gen PC instead of a console it could be they have a PC version in the works with PC specific features.

I'm hoping that's the case but if it isn't I'll be more than happy to get it on PS3.

"A "current-gen" PC would pretty much destroy the PS3/360 and could easily be close to what the new consoles will have."

I think current gen PCs would easily destroy next gen consoles. Reasons are simple, i dont think next gen consoles will be a huge leap.

1. Cost constraints- Both the console makers have learnt their lesson, they know console gamers dont care about graphics, hence investing too much into powerful hardware is a waste of resources and only leads to selling hardware at a loss.

2. Even if they want to pack powerful hardware, they cant. Heat and power requirements on new hardware is significantly higher then what it used to be few years back. They would some how need to defy physics if they are to put a high powered GPU into the contrained box of a console. Also people should consider looking at the kind of PSUs that go into PC to powerup the same graphics cards. The plastic PSUs within consoles would never be able to supply enough power power up a beastly GPU of today.

Console makers would have to significantly increase the sizes of their boxes inorder to improve airflow and accomodate much larger PSUs if they are to increase power significantly. Other wise they will just be looking for RRODs and YLOD to happen.

Why would anyone disagree with that? It's not even your opinion, its simply a fact. It's like saying that a Nokia phone I had back in 2005 is as good as my Galaxy S Blaze.
Brosy  +   1095d ago
Where do you get that console gamers dont care about graphics? Im a console gamer and I care about graphics. What I dont care about is the hassle it takes to be a PC gamer. But I like good graphics just like anyone else. It doesnt take a console as much to have good quality graphics as it does a PC. So the console makers shouldnt have any trouble producing next-gen graphics. You should go watch the Unreal Engine 4 demo, and the newest Star Wars 1313 videos, they look freakin amazing.

"I agree brosy. I have a PC that can run most current gen PC games just not at their highest settings, and this pc cost me almost 3,000 when i first purchased it a few years back."

This is simply a lie or you got scammed big time. A 700usd PC from 3-4 years back can still play most games out today in 1080p. You can check tomshardware.com they have 500usd builds that play most games out today in 1080p. So i dont see how you could have spent 3000usd and still not able to play maxed out.

Making claims of having to update every year are simply false. You seem more like the people who try to give PC gaming a bad name in regards to costs and upgrades. A properly made PC can easily last 4-5 years with no upgrades and still out play consoles in every game.
one2thr  +   1095d ago
Everything on Pc can be done at 1080p but that doesnt necessarily mean that it'll look good.

Like Fallout New Vegas, I can play it at 1080p(or higher rez) an it still looks like rubbish compared to lets say Heavy Rain which is at 720p.

Whats the sense of bragging about resolutions when some games look like crap?

Games worth playing at 1080:
Blacklight retribution
LA Noir
Arkham City
And many more, but not all games played at 1080p look good
Kidmyst  +   1095d ago
@T900 he probably bought Alienware, highly overpriced gaming PC's from them can easily cost way more than they should.

But I agree with T900, I build gaming PC's once every 4-5 years and built one for BF3, I go with the best I can afford so all I need to upgrade is the Graphics cards. CPU, Mobo and Ram all at stock setting now but can also be overclocked in case the 4-5 year marks push the PC. But with a Quadcore, 8GB of RAM (can run up to 16GB), Overclockers Mobo,SSD HDD's and a huge power supply. I'm set for a while all for around $1,500 with modding my own case and custom painted it too.
Never buying a PC again, will always build.

"current-gen PC would pretty much destroy the PS3/360"

Problem with this statement is that for all the power of pc's, the vast majority of software doesnt maximize its potential because its such a fragmented audience. Adiitionally, windows is a pretty big resource hog too.
Maddens Raiders  +   1095d ago
Who cares? If you want to play crappy 3rd party games, a paltry offering of console exclusives, or PC only games get a PC or MS product. If you want to play 1st party Sony exclusives you get a PlayStation. Simple.

I don't see this coming to current gen. Target my ass. Its like Star Wars 1313, and Watch Dogs. I question the game Remember Me as well. They are both Next-gen games, but they have to say they are current gen until the NDA for next gen platforms is gone!

I don't see how PS4 should be the main relevance. It could easily be on Xbox 3 or WiiU hardware as well. Developers can only show their new games on PC hardware because the next gen tech isn't here to show it off.

Well FOX Engine already runs on PS3 and 360 so if this is running on FOX Engine (which it is) then it can easily come to those platforms.

However I would like for them to hold off until the PS4/720 hit.
DeadlyFire  +   1095d ago
I guess I should rephrase that to I don't see this Just coming to this gen. PS3/X360 will get a port of it from newer hardware down to them.

If it was using High end PC to demo the engine. They likely plan for next gen launch of it as well as even Cloud.

I don't think the PS4 will make it out til 2014. I don't see it coming next year. Though its obvious the 720 will be out next year.

@ _-EDMIX-_

Lately they have said that the ps4 will release when the technology can perform a significant leap so the experience will be significantly different.
"The right time to talk about new advances in hardware is when you can demonstrate a significant leap on the current experience, and something that is going to be attractive."

With the ps3 being a beast and the vita being a beast, also with these two recent quotes as a good indication that Ps4 wont dissapoint anyone in terms of power and features Id say that ps4 will possibly be the last one out but we will have to wait and see.

wwm0nkey  +   1095d ago
No Kojima wants the series to be multi-platform which is why the Fox Engine was being developed as a multi-platform engine in the first place.

Also Sony do not own the copyright to Metal Gear Solid or else there is no way we would have gotten the HD collection on the 360.

so on a pc is more easy....u cant never know what theres inside......and nowday current gen high end pc....mean next gen consoles....or something like that...

i dont expect this game out for ps3 xbox 360...and also coz if xbox cant support all the data of mgs4 ..for sure cant msg5...this is an important franchise and im it will come out close to the next gen release

Anyone who actually believed Sony would reveal anything behind closed doors on PS4 is kidding themselves.
PS4 will be revealed at a special Sony Playstation event, without doubt.....and when stuff is ready to be shown that will impress, believe you me, they won't be doing it behind closed doors to a selected audience, they will want the WHOLE WORLD to see, as a direct return fire to Wii-U & to possibly beat MS out of the gate.
I don't think Sony nor MS want to screw up what may be there best Xmas ever, especially if price drops happen before hand as rumoured, so they will market hell out of what they already have on offer & wait till maybe early January for a reveal. I think MS will get the jump on Sony again too, but I think that is in Sony's plan, & instead of leaving a 18month grace period for MS to get the sales advantages, they will do it more like the PS1 & Saturn, which launched like within a week of each other here in Australia. That would be the 3rd smartest sales move for Sony, the 2nd being to release as far ahead of MS's new console as possible, the 1st would be to release 1st out of all 3 & surprise attack Nintendo with a PS4 that hits market before Wii-U or around the same time.
pinwheelherman  +   1095d ago
We've been hearing for a while that the next-gen PlayStation may drop the custom chips used in precious Sony consoles and move to a more standard configuration of PC parts. Therefore, there's a chance that even if this PC is not an official development kit, it might be based on planned PS4 specs.

That picture is beyond the capabilities of current-gen consoles, and it would be foolish of Konami to hype everyone up with such impressive visuals only to scale them back before release. Talk about a let-down.

We have to imagine that major companies are already working on PS4 and Xbox 720 games, as we're expecting announcements within the next 6-8 months and they need games to showcase. Obviously Konami can't wheel out a box with the words "PS4" stamped on the side, but I'd be surprised if they weren't already developing for it, or at least for PCs based on approximate specifications.
wishingW3L  +   1095d ago
that picture is not even real time man... And PS4 may use PC parts but the software is not the same. Just compare a Mac to a Windows PC, both can share the same specs but performance is like night and day.

Didn't they something about making an exclusive game for the PS3 Vita cross-play.
It may not be metal gear but a utilization of the engine. I believe the next metal gear may be pushed to next-gen. It's a far better strategy considering Watch Dogs, Star Wars 1313 and other possible titles may pick up the brand new fanbase when the next-gen console releases.

Braid  +   1095d ago
I can actually understand the confusion. Console gamers see a game running on a high-end PC, and it impresses the hell out of them. Not knowing it's actually running on PC, they just go out and start shouting "brace yourselves, the next-gen is coming!"

It's quite normal actually, as they usually choose to overlook the fact that there is a HUGE gap between the current-gen consoles and high-end PCs, and most of them are not even aware that 90% of the games are sub-hd on consoles, not even 720p in native resolution. When they see a game running on 1080p with extreme details, they just can't see it running on a current-gen console, the only reasonable argument they can come up with is a "next gen console" at that point.

That's actually true though, as the next-gen consoles will basically be high-end PCs that can render 1080p games at high detail. But let it known: there are actually PCs out there, you know, gaming machines other than consoles, that can do wonders if you have the right components. That being said, we don't know the platforms yet. The game may NEVER be released on PC, as most of the developers choose the PCs to showcase their games and then they release a game which looks nothing like what they show. I still remember the first MGS4 footage looking a lot better than actual in-game graphics, and if it's going for a current-gen release, some details may be lost in optimization. (On a side note: the same goes for the Watch Dogs, if it's going to be released on PS3/360, we just need to forget about what they showed us.)

Let's just wait for PAX or TGS before making assumptions, they'll probably show us the same demo somewhere in the near future.

You keep dreaming. You've already contradicted yourself. It's being built on PC. It was shown running on PC Tech. You still think the PS3.5 will be generations ahead. But the PC will already be 5 to 7 years ahead when it's released. Consoles will always be behind. You get what you pay for...... Lmao!
BigStef71  +   1095d ago
How did I contradict myself? I know it was running on a pc but that could be the ps4 dev kit for all we know. Obviously Sony wouldn't flat out let konami and kojima productions say what system it was for cuz they want to show it at a sony press event. Till when announced what system it is then it's all speculation. Also I would take paying for a console once and having it for 10 years with great games any day than have to buy a new pc every two years for thousands of dollars just so I can run a game at ultra settings.
Batzi  +   1094d ago
Fox Engine was created so that no version will look better than the other. They clearly stated it was running on a PC with "current-gen" specs meaning that the PC it was running on was limited to what the PS3/360 can accomplish. All versions of the game should be identical.
BigStef71  +   1094d ago
Yea well pc current gen specs are a lot more powerful than the ps3 and 360 specs. I'm still going with the playstation console as the lead. U guys can argue all u want but all of Kojimas mgs games have been started from the ground up on playstation. What makes u think it will not be the same for this game?

Whatever the outcome is 360 owners can look forward to having to change the disc 5 or more times. If mgs4 wasn't even possible on 360 how the hell would this game be if the new one is gonna be a bigger game overall and be open world
