Konami shipped the Zone of the Enders HD Collection with the Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance demo advertised on the front, but it seems that the PS3 version is plagued by game-breaking bugs.
Lol, well it is a demo.
Still hopefully this isn't a sign of bad things for the PS3 version. Isn't this being done by the Bayonetta studio? In that case I'm worried, because the PS3 version of that was bad.....
Vanquish says hello.... honestly, High Voltage probably had something to do with it. They can't even encode a demo into a disc correctly. @neoMAXMLC yep, they didn't do the ps3 version.
The "Bayonetta studio" didn't do the PS3 version.
wow that legend still got a pulse . They never did a ps3 version of Bayonetta , sega did on its own . And they released two more games on ps3 since running perfectly fine
Sega developed Bayonetta for the PS3, not "the Bayonetta studio" (Platinum Games).
Vanquish wasn't 60 frames though.
Hmmm... Gamespot has a reputation of deception... Does anyone have video of the 360 version? I believe the bugs to exist on the PS3 demo without a doubt, but for them not to do a comparison is suspicious.
The bad PS3 port was SEGA's fault.
lol...i seen the demo. is it just me, or did Platinum Games add alot of cut scenes just to make it feel like a MGS game? Still looking forward to this game, looks like fun and i like how he Raiden finishes off the enemies.
Lead writer is Etsu Tamari from Kojima Productions, remember this is a joint project between two game studios. So yeah since it is from someone who has worked on games with long narratives (MGS4, MGS Peace Walker) then yes there will be some dialog.
@Dante112 aint worth demoing something full of bugs.
I think, people are being fools and mistaking themselves a bit in this N4G page, without trying to sound overly-insulting.....but, defending a game or being some patriot to it of the chance it'll improve can be silly in this situation by using the excuse that it's a Demo, let me explain this... Demos are meant to DEMONSTRATE why you should by the game. Bugs and glitches shouldn't exist really at all or else the demonstration basically fails by showing improper development, that it lacks the fine-tunes that you'd expect. The demo is a small piece of the game that SHOULD leave you wanting more and not being annoyed, NOT CRASHING, not freezing, not needing to reset the game. That is fine if it were a BETA....Alpha and Beta games are versions of the game UNTESTED....UNREFINED for that reason, but a Demo, in all of the history of demos, are meant to be a tweaked and improved sliver of the game. Not a Beta-Sliver of the game. Beta/Demo, are different. If they're going hand out a Beta, they by all standards, at LEAST put the effort in making it a good demonstration of what's to come. Not make gamers fearfully think of the possibilities of what bugs/glitches will be encountered in the future of 'What if - it isn't fixed?' or What if there's more bugs, but different ones?... So, again, do not defend it. It doesn't make you discriminatory or quick to judge. You SHOULD judge it harshly, it's a DEMO-NSTRATION. And what that is riddled with bugs.... jd666 below me has the same idea.
I'll have to see for myself how the demo plays after that, I'll let you know.
Yeah, I agree a demo is suppose to make me want to buy the game. There have been plenty of demos that have made me not want buy a game. There have been demos that have made want the game, but the game ultimately ended up being completely horrid. And then there have been demos where it doesn't truly do the final product justice. So it is what it is. If people feel that the final product might be more polished than the demo, let them.
I've just played through the demo eight times I never saw any of this stuff happen that Gamespot has in that video especially the sections from 0:00 to 0:30 the game never froze up during mid combat. I also just tried as we are speaking that stair glitch they ran into which didn't happen. I can't disprove the stair glitch even though that isn't game breaking I ran into a similar glitch like that in Uncharted 2 its a visual glitch. Though I'm willing to bet that the footage from 0:00 to 0:30 was either a one time fluke or it was edited by themselves to make it look like the game was freezing up.
I played the demo the 360 and it was completely flawless. Theres was no bugs whatsoever and it ran silky smooth. I was highly impressed with the demo and cannot wait to buy the full version
I wonder what Kojima will think of this =/
I'm sure he won't think anything of it cause Rising is garbage and nobody will buy that mediocre hack & slash anyway. That's why he decided to make MGS: GZ instead. Usually people only care if a version is bad when the game is actually good so there is nothing to care about here.
Is there a 360 demo at the same stage of development being shown?
so what is a demo? =_=
It's meant to show the game off to make people want to buy it, not put them off which this potentially has!
The PS3 demo at the EuroGamer expo crashed on me twice at the place where you fight the Gekko...what does that fate mean...I just wanted to complete the damn demo
omg. it's a demo oO
Correction a beta...
Yeah keep making excuses
OK... I doubt I will pick up ZOE HD anymore. Went from definite buy to maybe, now that I know the MGR demo is glitchy as hell, I won't even bother to buy it. I've only played the japanese version of ZOE and haven't played 2 yet. Was looking forward to getting this collection, maybe I will just buy the PS2 versions from ebay.
I just can't understand your resolve...
He's an idiot. Not buying a game cause the demo it releases with might have a bug. "What a maroon"
yea what he just said was complete drivel.
Played the demo in its entirety last night on my PS3 and I didn't run into any glitches or problems whatsoever. I even died a few times and I had no problem myself.
Well that sucks.... its just a demo.
Yes its a demo but its scary when the other console demo is ok.
i didnt notice any glitches, its SUCH a badass game though! im getting it day 1~
It's only a demo so not overly concerned but that was bad, lol.
I guess its time to put out a patch for the demo :)
A demo a isn't the reflection of the final product. Well in this generation it is. Which defeats the purpose of the term "Demo."
Wow, could you be more mistaken? Demo is short for demonstration, which is meant to show off what the game can do. Obviously things change between demo creation and the final product, but this is our first REAL impression of the game. If the demo is demonstrating a glitchy mess, how does that NOT reflect on the main product? It turns people off, writing on the wall, plenty of other examples. With this being said, I have faith Platinum Games will come through, but there is no point in a demo if it doesn't reflect on the final product.
But yet, it is far from the final product, BTW, it'll be released in February of next year, so still plenty of time. Demos are usually released weeks before the game, but this one is 4 months too early, so pretty much it is way too far from the final game. In a lot of cases a demo isn't very much indicative of the final game if its released months too early!!!
@admiralvic It's this generation mentallity: release first, fix it later. After playing Vanquish, I do believe it will be fine by the time it get's gold though. They are trustworthy developers.
I can take a example why the final versions of a game is better than a demo God Of War 3 got a demo in september 2009. It was looking awesome but slighty less polished, effects and visual treatment than the final build Here is a great example on a job well done by Santa Monica Studio http://www.eurogamer.net/vi...
lmao at everyone claiming it's only a demo. last time i checked demos are suppose to TRY and INFLUENCE gamers to purchase the full retail game. This is not their first game on the ps3 so that excuse, well, there shouldn't be an excuse to begin with.
Bottom line is still : all of their previous games run fine on ps3 . And when have you seen a metal gear run badly on a PS console ? Acceptable or not we've had plenty faulty demos for otherwise fine final games
lmao at everyone claiming it's only a demo. last time i checked demos are suppose to TRY and INFLUENCE gamers to purchase the full retail game. This is not their first game on the ps3 so that excuse, well, there shouldn't be an excuse to begin with. Besides that, i'm still weary of this game. Need more gameplay.
Haha, Metal Gear sucks...
Dude you're so lucky you left out the SOLID. I agree MG:R will not be up to par with Kojima san's masterpiece.
So you're trying to imply the two original MSX games Kojima worked on which are not titled SOLID sucks as well, huh???
Doom and gloom. Another day on N4G.
Soldiers: "Where'd he go?" Raiden thinking: "I wish I could answer"
Was this like Bayonetta where the leading console is for the Xbox?
Not at all . Again the 360 wasnt even the lead console , it was the only console bayonetta was developed for by Platinum games period . Sega pulled an orange box and decided to forcefully and badly port it on their own .
how did I get a disagree for asking a question? haha Anyway, it's good to hear that this game won't be a bad port.
Maybe this is a good thing. The more people make a spectacle about bugs maybe Platinum will polish the game even more during the debugging phase.
Is Bugthesda secretly helping out with this game?
Thought PS3 was lead platform for this!! How embarrassing!! HAHAHAHA(for the devs, not PS3 owners)
luckily you put those parentheses up, some folks can be a tad bit sensitive.
Thats cuz Platinum games cant handle its architecture... I wish kojima wouldve been able to do this.. I wont buy it if the final version is anything less than xbox version or if it gets anything under an 8/10 average.. Im sure japan is going to be pissed cuz they dont even have the choice of gtn xbox version.. They can keep the CE cuz i wont support lazy development
played the japanese demo 10 times, didn't see ANY bugs
Everyone here doesnt understand a demo is a work in progress i rember God of war 3 demo had bugs and the end product was amazing and ive seen that same scenerio countlesz other times. The people who are hating are just ignorant trolls who like platinum did the ps3 bayontta port and have no idea that they created Devil May Cry or Okami some of the best games ever. A shitty job by gamespot who are just looking for hits...
Platinum didn't do the PS3 version of Bayonetta that was handled by Sega.
@Whitefox That's what I said sorry my stupid phone didn't add the word "act" before like. Even still you can tell I did point out that they did not do the PS3 port.
The day that a Metal Gear game runs like shit on a Playstation platform is the day you realize that the dev team sucks double ass.
No wonder its beta instead of a demo. I just hope is not a broken product when is released, like many games this gen...
A demo is the interactive equivalent to a movie trailer. It is designed to get you interested in the final product. This demo, as well as Bayonetta, makes me want to avoid all future Platinum Games releases. Even if they didn't do this demo or Bayo, there name is still stamped on the package. If PG is too cheap do hire PS3 coders, then they do not deserve PS3 gamer's time or money.
I think it should also be considered that this demo is being played MUCH more on PS3 than on XBOX 360. You are bound to find more bugs and issues with that many more people playing on it. With that being said it froze up on me once, no big deal it happens. If the final game has issues then I will have a problem.
Wow interesting... The first multiplat Metal Gear game and its buggy on the PS3... I blame the 360, if it was a PS3 exclusive there would be nothing holding it back.
This is unacceptable, and had better not be the demo landing on my ZOE disk.
Even if Metal Gear REvengance was PS3 Exclusive. Keep in mind that the Architecture of the PS3 is distinctly different than the Xbox 360. SONY will fix that for the PS4 since the reports I've read state that PS4 will be easy to develop for like a PC. I own a PS3 & 360. 360 only owners shut up and play your only genre of gaming you have catered in spending your time on and that's... FPS.
Not Kojimas game... and not PS3 owners problem!
Sometimes I enjoy a good grilled cheese sandwich...
