PC Version of Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes Appears For Preorder

The PC version of Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes has appeared on the online retail site Zavvi.com for preorder. This is odd due to the fact that there hasn't actually been a PC version announced yet. (Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Nice. I'd like to play this on the PC.

My dinky little laptop could never run this, but some day I might join the PC gaming world.

Mine might run it but there's no telling of how well it would look.

On the bright side, the longer you wait, the cheaper the price of admission for PC gaming becomes. Right now most new personal Computers are capable gaming machines, all they need is a GPU.

Man.. when you start Pc gaming... its hard to go back

Borderlands 2, oh man. Best Game I've played this year

I might get ground zeroes for PS3 though... and I find it funny that now that MGS is multiplat people from the PC and 360 crowd have stopped slamming MGS, and now are claiming they will have the superior version of a game they were blasting for not being a game, but rather just cutscenes... remember all the MGS4 review controversy, and people kept insulting the game for no good reason?

I had no clue what was going on at the time, since I only had a wii, but after I played all the MGS games... the people who blasted MGS4 are idiots

Weird how fanboys work

But still, I think the MGS franchise is something everyone should at least try/experience

Ground Zeroes day 1 for PC... or PS3 depending on the specs

you can get diy kits cheap and a 550ti for $99 which is capable of running battlefield 3 on ultra. rather cheap to be honest. quad core high end and mobo and ram and case with psu is $290 so $400 your into high end gaming.

First gamers ever to play MGS in 1080 or higher! Congrats!!

Also for the ps3 elitist..

the pc spec are based on ps3 & 360 straight from the horses mouth. Don't trust articles trust kojima.

Developing on pc the porting to 360 is better than porting to cell architecture. Everyone know this.

That's not entirely true, you can emulate every MGS game except MGS4, and play them in above 1080p resolution on the emulator. I'm sure many people have done it already.

Peace walker HD was in 1080p

"Developing on pc the porting to 360 is better than porting to cell architecture. Everyone know this."

1)Kojima has worked primarly on the PS3 all this gen, 2)this was LEAD developed on PS3 and will be ported Xbox, 3)most Japanese made games end up horrible on Xbox an PC and 4) it will most likely be on multiple discs on 360.

The superior version WILL be on PS3.

What happen to "Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance" cause we are now all of a sudden talking about "Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes" like "it's" the next game to be released.

Who cares about Revengeance now that Ground Zeroes is on the way lol?

Because it is the next gme to be released?

MGR is not the same as the MGS series. I cannot wait for Rising either but..still
Withdreday  +   1151d ago
Metal Gear Rising will just be hack and slash crap, MGS: Grounds Zeros is an actual entry in the franchise.

Notice how people moved on real quick after GZ was announced. That's why.

^ this. The lead platform is PS3 first and foremost plus this article is full of shit. No one confirmed anything about a PC version. The Ground Zeroes trailer DOES NOT include "Microsoft Windows" at the end.
taquito  +   1152d ago

the definitive "erosion" is on ps3/360

eroded hd, anti aliasing, draw distance, proper shadows, framerate,v-sync, hdr, ssao

console versions of multiplats are ALWAYS severely eroded.

and if you guys actually believe that the console version will look ANYTHING like that trailer, you are moire delillusional than I thought before, lol.

and people saying the trailer was on a pc with ps3/360 tech in....lol....ok.....so an 8 year old pc....mmmm hhmmmm......sure it was...lol....

wait till it comes out on console and is covered in jaggies, screen tear, low res textures, bad framerate like all console games and looks NOTHING like that trailer.....gosh, you think after 8 years of blullshots and FAKE trailers you guys would get it, the best ps3 will EVER do is uncharted 2 (3 looked worse, face it, and uncharted 2 looks LAST GEN compared to 5 year old pc games) and the best 360 will ever do is gears 3 (which looked freaking awful)

@taquito I feel sorry for people like you. What you say is almost certainly true, but if it bothers you if a game doesn't have good enough graphics, then pc ruined gaming for you. Graphics have next to nothing to do with what I think of games, I still play more ps1 and n64 games then I do games from this gen. Would it bother you to look at old graphics? Would it take the fun away?

See, I don't think of games in terms of graphics and specs. I just think of them in terms of gameplay and art. And because of that art part, to me banjo kazooie looks better than battlefield 3 any day of the week. I'm going to buy this game because I love the mgs gameplay and story. As long the frame rate is solid, I really don't care how it looks. Mgs 1 is still my favorite anyway, and that has some pretty shitty graphics compared to today's games don't it?

But when they revealed MGS:GZ they said it was running on PC.

Anyways, thanks Kojima!
Ur the f*cking man.

It was running on a PC with current-gen specs(PS3/360) and not a high-end PC. Game engines are built on a PC you know.

it was running on pc with ps3 TECH ONLY

Batzi kindly stfu plz..kojima said PS3 TECH only not 360,go check his interviews

why all the rage? I checked the PAX session and Kojima said PS3 & 360 and it's right here: http://www.youtube.com/watc...

wwm0nkey  +   1152d ago
Well right now they are running it on PC at their showings, might as well just release that if they have it up and running rather than scrap it and loose out on sales.

(FOX Engine is intended for PC/PS3/360)
OccludedGamer  +   1151d ago
It isn't actually that straight forward. PC's also come with the bane of having many variants of builds.

The knock on effect of this is that many bugs will show up across various builds, something that consoles of course don't suffer since each individual system will run off of the same hardware, be it a jasper model 360 or slim 360 for example.

This alone is one of the reasons that PC version are dodged as it of course increases the workload and production costs.

Really it all comes down to whether or not Konami feel that the PC version will turn enough profit, if any, to make it a viable option froma business standpoint.

As a multiple console owner and PC owner I hope it does come to PC as more choice is generally good in most cases.
2pacalypsenow  +   1152d ago
ew to me playing MGS on somenthing other than a Sony console would be weird
dirthurts  +   1152d ago
There have been many MG games on other consoles, and on PC in the past.
Metal Gear:Solid hit the pc.
Twin Snakes on the game cube. MG2 on the xbox.
The newest collection is on the 360 right now.
The original MG was on the NES.
It's not unusual.
GrahamGolden  +   1151d ago
wich all sold craps to none compared to playstation hard to admit for u pc fans buts its a well know fact.
Ducky  +   1151d ago
^ Well, it was released later on PC, and most people had played it on a console already at that point. Might come as a shock, but 'PC fans' play console games too, especially when they're exclusive (timed or permanent)

Not sure how sales changes anything though, his point was just that the MGS series has been on other platforms.
dirthurts  +   1151d ago
Yeah wasn't really talking about sales, but I'm sure it was the fact that most people had already played it in some form.
That and Konami has released some pretty crappy ports. Not their greatest talent.
UnwanteDreamz  +   1151d ago
MGSolid hit PC almost 2 years after release.
MGS2 on XBOX was a year later then release.

MasterCornholio  +   1151d ago
I prefer trophy's.


Anyways my PC is crap so its the PS3 version for me then. Kojima stated that Metal Gear Rising would be best on the PS3 so i wont be surprised if the PS3 version of Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes ends up being better on the PS3 than the 360.

No offense.

“We all versions of the game with great care and effort build. But hardware constraints we are sometimes annoying. But the problem we have in the PS3 console and power top the console allows us to make our best game.So it is natural that the PS3 version is better than the other two versions.”


PS: I'm just glad that after so many years Kojima has decided to bring the franchise to the 360. The HD collection was a great start but this game will be something else especially with the new engine and the new gameplay mechanics.

Games are games to me, its basically going to be the same game on all formats. I don't see how it could be something totally different and THAT much better on PS3.

Also, I recently finished up the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection on Xbox 360, so I'm more then ready for a new game.

I like Achievements because I've been getting them since 2005, its part of the reason I buy multi-platform games on Xbox 360. Trying to hit 100k before the Xbox 720 launches.
Braid  +   1151d ago
Why do some of you guys act so surprised? It's not like the franchise has always been a console exclusive, for you information, MGS1 and MGS2 were officially released on PC as well. No, PC gamers didn't have to emulate all of the games in the series, the first two came with an official box and an install disc.

And they came with advanced graphics options as well, such as enviroment detail, shadow detail, lighting detail etc. along with classic AA, AF features. You could crank the resolution up as much as your hardware allowed you to.

I bet some of you didn't even know that. Well, now that you know, take your console elitist "PZ3 360 DA BEZT VERZON" comments with you and kindly get off the comments section.

Console gamers have been playing those for years though. And contrary to PC elitist belief, you'll be lucky of you can get an old game like MGS1 & MGS2 to run on a current OS

Besides, everyone knows console's are were it's at. PC gamers only play Diblo. Most devs could skip PC and not miss a beat.
Braid  +   1151d ago
Stop telling people on what platform they should play games, they won't listen as that's a matter of preference.

No, console's are not were it's at. Consoles are only good for the exclusives, and they're great games, the only reason I buy almost every console day one, as I know that great exlusives will always be there. But other than that, everything consoles can do, PCs do better. "Oh but I want to sit on my couch and play my games on TV." Well, you can always connect your PC case to your LCD via HDMI connection. If you don't like mouse+keyboard controls, you can connect a 360 controller which almost supports every single game out there. So what's the difference? Nothing, actually. Most of what console conservatives believe are not actually true. And yeah, you can buy a cheap gaming PC as well, by the way.

"PC gamers only play Diablo."

That's not true again. I play every multiplatform game on my PC, leave my consoles for the exclusives. It's not like multiplatform games aren't coming to PCs, what you play, PC gamers play as well.

"Most devs could skip PC and not miss a beat."

Yes they could, and yet they don't. Why do you think is that? Not only most of the best games of this generation are multiplatforms, but also PC gamers could play some of the exclusives as well, such as Gears of War, Halo 2, Alan Wake and even Dark Souls.

That's a matter of choice really, even though I play my games on PC most of the time I would never ever tell console gamers some crap about their platform of choice, but when I read comments like "conzolz are beztz, pc gamerz're idiotz" I just can't believe how immature some people can get.

@ below,

Yeah, there was a two year gap. And also a considerable amount of extra content, alternative missions and a side story mode exclusive to PC version along with better graphics so that's nothing to brag about, right? Konami always do it right with the PC version.

@ Braid

Look at the sales for most PC multiplatform titles, you're in the minority. Before the gaming market switched to the west, game companies were wildly profitable and bearly touched the PC market, so a PC release is only fan service and mostly unnecessary.

When GZ tanks on PC, and is mostly pirated, Kojmia will surely regret his decision to expose his latest masterpiece to that audience on day 1.
Braid  +   1151d ago

They do make profit thanks to the services like Steam and GOG. If they didn't, Sony and Microsoft wouldn't desperately try to force digital distribution to the console gamers. Besides, PS3/360 games are being pirated as well. If it wasn't for online functionality, even a bigger number of console owners would pirate their games.

That being said, I'll most probably get the PS3 version of MGS: GZ. Not that the other versions will be inferior or something, but that's only because I'd like to put the GZ box right next to my MGS4 limited edition on the bookshelve. MGS franchise is somehow tied to the Playstation brand in my eyes, so that's an "old habits are hard to break" case for me.

You guys do know that Job-Listings posted by Kojima Productions a while back said that the 'Next Metal Gear Solid' game would involve *Big Boss* and the game would be targeted for high-end consoles,current-gen consoles, and the DUCKIN' PC!!And now they announced MGS:Ground Zeroes(the next metal gear solid game) and this game just happens to involve Big Boss and when Kojima San said that the PC Demo he showed would be comparible to the console counterparts,people are *STILL* yapping that this won't come on PC?!!
By Allah!Are you guys really THAT dull?When it was said WAY before the official reveal that this game would come on PC?!People should really know how to put two-and-two together!
