Hopefully itll have a large install to help

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1803d ago (Edited 1803d ago )

lol Thought consoles gamers hated that? It's like pc gaming then.

At disagree: Correction sorry it is nothing like pc gaming then.. Pc gamers use disks and never want digital..

It was just an observation stop being such fannys & I didn't even say anything bad about ps3..

GamingManiac1803d ago

Not all console gamers are whining pussies, you know....

MysticStrummer1803d ago (Edited 1803d ago )

Yes it's just like PC gaming, except when we put a game in for the first time we don't have to wonder if we'll need to buy an upgrade to run it.

MaxXAttaxX1803d ago (Edited 1803d ago )

I don't see a problem there.



No one claimed you said anything bad about the PS3.
Most PS3 fans don't care about installs, while 360 fanboys like to talk negatively about them (forgetting that they needed to install a second disc to get all the cars in Forza 4 and good textures in Battlefield 3)

Clarence1803d ago

No at one time 360 fans complaind about the PS3 having to install games

SilentNegotiator1803d ago (Edited 1803d ago )

Quit trying to demonize console gamers.

Don't play innocent. All you do is troll about the "GLORIOUS PC MASTERRACE" and attack consoles.

Simply seeing Snake smoke a cigarette satisfied me in MGS4. At the time (08) it was absolutely amazing. The only other cigarette thing I remember was COD4 back in 07 (Captain Price in the Heli during first Ship mission) and MGS4 blew that away.

Irishguy951803d ago

Not all console gamers are whining pussies. They still moan about disk swapping though, lets just hope you don't have to install each area during a loading screen

shoddy1803d ago

Thank god we don't have to change disks.

starchild1803d ago

Neither installs nor changing discs is any big deal. I just love the hypocrisy of many fanboys on all sides.

On topic: This game looks outstanding...if we have to deal with some loading screens to get it, so be it. I would always take loading screens over having to see pop-in everywhere.

Skate-AK1803d ago

I have never had an issue installing my PS3 games. I even do optional installs if the game supports it.

BattleAxe1803d ago

"Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes open world will have loading screens"

Thanks XBOX 360 !

Septic1803d ago


Oh yeah, because a mandatory install for optional content for Forza and for a texture pack on Battlefield really is just as bad as the vast majority of games on the PS3 that require mandatory installs.

Let me fix your statement for you:

"Most PS3 fanboys on N4G a desperate attempt to save face will pretend that mandatory installs are acceptable."

Mandatory installs are a joke and I would take disc swapping over that any day. The whole point of a console is that it should be plug in and play. Even updates on the PS3 take an age to download and then install whereas on the 360 they take less than 5 seconds. The amount of times my mates have come round (or vice versa) to play a game only to watch the game download an update and then install said update.....

But fanboys on here are deflecting the issue and saying that the 360 will have multiple discs. So be it. I'll gladly take that over mandatory installs any day. Let's just hope it doesn't have mandatory installs.

xAlmostPro1803d ago

The only people that hated installs were xbox 360 fanboys who used it as an insult until PS3 exclusives got so good and large that 360 games started to require multiple disks and installs.

SilentNegotiator1802d ago

"Oh yeah, because a mandatory install for optional content for Forza and for a texture pack on Battlefield really is just as bad as the vast majority of games on the PS3 that require mandatory installs"

Considering consoles are supposed to be about equal experience and Microsoft has released several Xbox models with uselessly small memory space, yes, that is absolutely worse than mandatory installs.

And I'll install a game over swapping disks every time I hit a certain threshold.

On N4G they are whiney babies actually. Money was right.

Even disagreeing, means your crying in your own little way.

Maybe the loading screens are when you enter a facility of some sorts, just like in Skyrim or Oblivion (or any other Elder Scrolls game). I would hate loading screens while running through an open area. But still, Kojima never disappoints so lets wait and see how the game turns out.

cannon88001803d ago


There's no reason to live anymore!

Seriously, it's not even a big deal. If anything it makes it even more genuine, because all mgs games were like that. And besides, when you are installing the game's different acts, there's cool stuff going on in the background to keep people entertained.

meetajhu1803d ago

Thanks to the so called power of the next gen console cough *ps3* cough *360* this game will never show its true potential and graphical capabilities. PCtillDEATH

Hopefully not lengthy MGS 4 type that require sandwich making.

NastyLeftHook01803d ago

I hope it even has half the quality of the PS3 exclusive metal gear solid 4.

ape0071803d ago (Edited 1803d ago )

edit: deleted for misunderstanding

Septic1803d ago sad...honestly...

Loading screen's aren't all bad as long as they aren't too frequent. Loading between separate zones for example, wouldnt be too bad.

The day and night cycle could be brilliant- if AI react dynamically to you and your stealthy maneouvres.

NastyLeftHook01803d ago (Edited 1803d ago )


you mean a game from 2008? i would hope the new game looks better,and its not hard to accept at all. and ps3 fanboyism blood? did you make that statement right there because i said something positive about metal gear solid 4? a ps3 exclusive?

@ape why did you delete your comment? i thought we were having a discussion.

himdeel1803d ago (Edited 1803d ago )

@ape007 your comment is ridiculous. That's like saying MGS Rising GFX blows away Halo 3. New games are suppose to look better. Besides what other game has Kojima made this generation that tentonsoftube or anyone else can compare quality? MGS4 is it and it happens to be a PS3 exclusive.

This late in the console cycle it's GREAT to see new engines optimized for current consoles that can be scaled up for whatever is next.

I just wonder about these load times and if they will break up the gameplay or if they will be more akin to what we saw in MGS4, although not as lenghty.

Blankman851803d ago

4 years on and you only want it to be half as good? Why not better?

Septic1803d ago

Well its not rocket science tentonsoftube, it's no secret that you are a rabid fanboy on here and its obvious the way you said it:

"I hope it even has half the quality OF THE PS3 EXCLUSIVE metal gear solid 4."

Was it really necessary to mention the fact that it was PS3 exclusive?

JamieL1803d ago (Edited 1803d ago )

@ CmonBeReal
If it was such an unbiased legitimate claim as you say, what would be the point of saying "the PS3 EXCLUSIVE" at all? I think if someone meant it how you're suggesting they would say " I hope it has half the quality of MGS4", I'd think. That’s what I would do. Then on top of that you say "omg you guys are a bunch of little whiny kids" then you go on to whine like a little girl kid about they're whining. Makes sense.

That is irrelevant now after the patch :D

Kos-Mos1803d ago (Edited 1803d ago )

Hopefully there will be more intellectual cutscenes to remove the "shoot shoot" "get some get some" fans from this series. It's embarrasing to see all the stupid comments floating around about Metal Gear Solid's story and direction.

cannon88001803d ago

but dude, when is it a bad thing to make sandwiches. Sandwiches are the best!
