Cool. Shaping up to become a great game

I can't wait to see this on ps4. It would be silly to release this on any console that'll be available this year. I wouldn't want to play this game where everything was degraded in its tech to run on a system

I love watching the hd trailers and gameplay for this game and it makes me so excited for next gen consoles xbox 720 and ps4

It is coming out for PS3 and 360 unless stated otherwise.

Silly? So be it.
Septic  +   1229d ago
Oh my days...what did Nintendo do to you for you to despise them so much? Such a silly statement. And to think, people were calling me a fanboy in my response to you.

Either way, this game looks incredible. There seems to be so much attention to detail and its the little things like customising your own chopper music that MGS does brilliantly.

I wonder if this will have a proper MP mode and what that will be like.

Most of the things i have seen are stating it will be out on current gen equiptment. I am excited eiter way because the demo looks stunning. And if that's what can be done on current gen, that just makes me even more excited for next gen. But ill wait because there are some really good looking titles that are coming out for current hardware. There's still life in them stop trying to kill them off.
BlaqMagiq24  +   1228d ago
Well with your logic you wont be playing this game at all so have fun waiting. I'll be enjoying this game on ps3 when this comes out while you're still waiting for something that never happens lol.
FarCryLover182  +   1228d ago
I can't wait to see this on current gen is more like it. I can't wait to see MGS5 on next-gen!
Hatsune-Miku  +   1228d ago
I laugh at anyone who thinks that this game would look like in the trailers now on xbox 360 and ps3. It's possible for it to be downgraded but it would look like rubbish.

This game is meant for xbox 720, ps4 and high end PCs
Darth_Bane79  +   1228d ago
I laugh at you, period.
MysticStrummer  +   1228d ago
If it was meant for next gen consoles I'm pretty sure they'll make it for next gen consoles. I haven't heard a thing to indicate that though. You go ahead and wait though. Have fun.
RumbleFish  +   1228d ago
I would buy it for my PS3 and I certainly would buy a PS4 to play this game, but I would definitely prefer to play it on pc.

Can't wait to get my hands on the game anyway.

Looking great but am I the only one that does not like how the Fox Engine makes everything look like plastic, kind of reminds me of the early days on the Unreal Engine 3 where eveything looked like it was coverd in wax.

I know that its raining in the above pic but the character still look like he was soaked in oil instead of water.

Edit: Also I did not like the animation on the demo when the coat tail of the burnt guy was flapping in the wind...the movement did not look natrual and botherd me - I know its a small thing but I am picky like that.

You do realize this is no where near the final build and will be a lot more polished when it dose eventually get released right?
Knight_Crawler  +   1229d ago
I know its not the final build…did not eat my Nutella sandwich this morning and feel miserable so just felt like complaining about something :(

Lets hope the final build removes the plastic look…Loved MGS4 and the engine used for that game was boss (pun intended) so expect nothing but perfection from Kojima when MGS Ground Zero is released.

Also can we call MGS Ground Zero MGS 5?
rezzah  +   1229d ago
Its alright to be picky about details, i do the same thing.

Nice that you pointed it out as I was too captivated by how gorgeous it looked. If I watch it many more times I'm sure to spot other issues.

Still there is always room for improvement.

Edited for wrong word.

I think you only get that because of the lighting effects. His hair also looks gray in those shots and I believe the fox team said that is only because of the lighting in that scene. If you think about it he is in the dark with a lot of lights in front of him so you would have a lot of reflections from the water. We just have to wait and see i guess. I'm excited to see a final product. MGS KICKS ASS!
Whitefox789  +   1228d ago
We can't call Ground Zeroes MGS5 because its not MGS5; its basically a game that leads to the events of MGS5.
StraightPath  +   1229d ago
rel excited about this game!!! wonder when they say open world

is it like skyrim or gta open world? or is it like crysis open world with large levels with hub.

***"Cool. Shaping up to become a great game"***

That is an understatement, especially since Kojima is making this one.

***"The day and night cycle will be a 24 hour cycle"***

Is it literally 24 hours? If so, that means if you actually experience the day-night change you most likely have been playing the game too long lol.

***"You can return to your base at any time using the helicopter. The helicopter can get shot down though
After you board your helicopter, you travel in real time"***

I'm actually surprise that you travel real time in the heli. I thought you'd just skip to the checkpoint/base once you get on.

***"You can walk around your base, and design it, maybe possible from your smartphone. Designing your base is optional, and will not be required"***

I can already see myself spending hours designing the base lol.

Same info as PAX.
nrvalleytime  +   1229d ago
I was thinking the same, especially with the helicopter information.
Nate-Dog  +   1229d ago
PAX didn't reveal that you could build your own base or that Peace Walker's R&D ideas may be used again.
Batzi  +   1229d ago
we saw that coming. Operations Director of Eurogamer Network Tom Bramwell said that Kojima was planning to reveal a "surprise" and I don't think "building" a base can be qualified as a "surprise". Even Kojima himself tweeted that he was preparing something for Eurogamer Expo. And I can't believe Kojima flew all the way from Japan to London just to tell us that Ground Zeroes will be based off Peace Walker's experience. :P There is something missing. Eurogamer Expo just started and Kojima still has something to do on the 28th. So let's wait and see.

Oh I agree, there was supposed to be a surprised and there are still days left of Eurogamer to reveal something so maybe he's just making people wait (as he always does), but still he has revealed some info that is new.
nrvalleytime  +   1229d ago
I truly, truly hope Kojima pulls this off well. Ground Zeroes looks like the best MGS game yet, so more power to him and his development team.
Nyxus  +   1229d ago
As far as I know, at least some of the info is new. Some of it just gives some more details.
Summons75  +   1229d ago
Please make an English trailer soon. I can't wait to hear the sweet sweet voice of David Hayter give life to Big Boss once again =]
-Gespenst-  +   1228d ago
I have a feeling we'll get Richard Doyle...
Braid  +   1228d ago
Some people always get that feeling, starting from Portable Ops, and David Hayter always get the job. This will be no different. Snake is only a couple of years older in this game, your voice don't age in a couple of years like that.

There's no way Kojima will overlook this detail and do whatever it takes to give the job to Hayter. The man's known for his attention to little details, he would never ever do such a mistake.

The fact you can design your base... so you have a safe house type place then it us that just me thinking that

Think Peacewalker.

Well you know this game will be filled with MGS figurines, posters of hot woman and statues to collect for your base then.

to the next level.
WeskerChildReborned  +   1229d ago

belac09  +   1229d ago
this is my most anticipated game, im getting impatient Hideo!
Alcohog  +   1229d ago
Everything from Peacewalker should be in this game! PW was amazing, especially the hub stuff.
Fez  +   1228d ago
Agree, loved recruiting members to research new weapons and items and all the rest. Maybe leave out the turn-based combat stuff or give the player more control like a fully fledged turn-based RPG (was pretty annoying seeing an enemy with 1hp still kicking about with none of your team attacking it leaving ZEKE to waste a turn).
Eamon  +   1228d ago
Didn't manage to make it in this developer conference. It was fully packed out like 45 minutes before it began.

Quite disappointed.
SageHonor  +   1228d ago
Talk about innovating
T3MPL3TON  +   1228d ago
I'm beyond happy to get the closer on Big Boss. I really hope they do make a game with Boss as the lead. There is a lot to her story that isn't answered. Maybe some of it will be answered in this game.
specialguest  +   1228d ago
Being that it's an open-world game, I'm concern about the PS3 version. Most multiplatform open-world games either looks or runs the least best on the PS3. On the hopeful side, it's Konami developing it which they should have great experience with the PS3.
Braid  +   1228d ago
I don't think this game will be an open world game as most of you guys think. I think there will be a world map divided into smaller sections which contains missions and you'll be able to go to any active mission on the main map anytime and in any order you want. Those sections will be big in size as you can see the camp in the trailer and you'll be able to use cehicles within thise mission areas. You go to a section, game loads up. You abort that mission and return to base, bringing up the world map, the game loads up again. I don't think there will be an explorable world without loading times as in GTA games, that would not work for a game that has a linear story flow like MGS. My guess is that the misaion system will be just like it was in Portable Ops, and that'd be, I'm not sure, semi-open world? Kojima's just messing with concepts.

I thought about your concept and it sounds highly likely that it may be like what you described.
Pillsbury1  +   1228d ago
Awesome! This game is gonna be legen... Wait for it... Dary!!!
-Gespenst-  +   1228d ago
It sounds awesome, but it does feel like they're latching onto videogame trends a bit though with the whole open world / hub world thing, and the whole mission structure thing if that's what it sounds like. Even the animation is completely overhauled. It definitely doesn't seem to have that arcadey MGS feel. In it's place it's got this cinematic, gritty, realistic feel.

I'm sure it'll be awesome and with Kojima at the helm it'll unmistakably BE an MGS game, but idk, it seems like it's going to be VERY different at the same time.

Dont like the sounds of those. Especially the helicopter part.

Hope it comes to PC.. as what they've shown on the last trailer was done on PC (Kojima said so himself).
