Rumored Metal Gear Solid V Might Not Be Exclusive

PSE Writes: "During the VGA's one game was odded out when it premiered last night. That game we're talking about is "The Phatom Pain". The trailer was an odd one but, some Metal Gear Solid fans notice quite a few things during the reveal as well as with some further investigation." (PS3, Xbox 360)

Well, with the HD collection, MGR:R, MGS:GZ all being for the 360...

It's not really surprising... So long as I get the game I am fine. But I am sure this place is about to go up in flames...

Well I mean I wrote this article for discussion, considering MGS4 was exclusive and did very well for Sony. It's just interesting to see a game like this become a multiplatform game and how things will play out.

Interesting title; the funny thing is, you could remove the word 'not' and it would mean the same thing.

Wouldn't have the desired effect though, would it?...

Either way to me it does give the same effect. Only wanted to post this up as a discussion piece, I like to hear what the masses would think of something like this!

You said you just wanted some discussion... Yet you didn't posted your thoughts on the forums, in fact you just made this "article" out of thin air and decided to publish it here, didn't even had the common sense to post this as a opinion piece or a rumor (rumor form where anyway?), but as news.

You don't want discussion, you want flames and hits for your blog... Sorry to break it to you kid, but you aren't exactly being original here, maybe you "gaming journalists" should try something new for a change.

We haven't seen next gen consoles yet so we don't know if one console would hold Metal Gear Solid 5 back or not like the 360 would have done to MGS 4 (and did to FFXIII).

If MGS 5 is announced this early and it comes out on both next gen platforms and they are as close (power-wise) as the PS3 is to the 360, it won't matter.

That sounds contradictory but MGS 5 would be coming out early next gen and everyone knows that early gen games are not the greatest (in terms of technology). Look at Uncharted: Drakes Fortune and then look at Gears of War 3.

Ya but it still sucks. Without the original PlayStation. The series would not be as popular as it is today. Konami and Kojima should of at-least respected Sony and there fans and allowed the numbered MGS games to be exclusive to sony platforms.

It just feels like a slap in the face. Tekken,MGS,FF and many more franchises was made popular because of Sony. And to just see these developers makes sony exclusive games multi-platform just feels like a stab in the back...

And when you spend 50+ Million dollars on a project compared to last gen which was allot cheaper, you would understand why they are doing this.

Yeah, Sony had help the franchises start with the PS brand, but they are a company, and spending that much money, they are going to try and get it for as many people as possible.

It's not a slap in the face, it is someone making sure their vision and creative work can be viewed and played by as many people as possible, while maximizing profits.

Kojima and his team probably have tons of respect and thanks to sony for being the host of so many of their awesome titles, but, like any business, I figure they want to reach out to as many customers and potential fans as possible.

And that isn't a bad thing, necessarily.

Dude, i believe that it is Sony that made the Metal Gear Solid franchise as popular as it is today, but the Metal Gear Solid series were never an exclusive to the PlayStation consoles, except Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots of course. Besides, isn't it nice that our fellow gamers that play on other systems, get a chance to experience this awesome game.
NeverEnding1989  +   1162d ago
Do you seriously think that Konami board members sit around and discuss how to respect Sony and their fans? They don't give a sh*t about you, Mika.

For fanboys, MGS5 going multiplatform is a slap in the face. In reality, it's business. Konami may be looking for a larger market, where bigger than the US market dominated by the Xbox 360? It's simple business. Not to mention Sony's dire financial situation would be more than enough reason to jump ship.
spicelicka  +   1162d ago
What kind of fanboy bullshit is that?? So you feel like you're getting slapped just cuz more people will get to enjoy the damn game??

That's like saying without PCs the series wouldn't even exist because you make it on PCs, so they should just make it exclusively on PC?

How does it affect you if the game is exclusive to ps3 or not? You didn't invent the system so why do act like you feel betrayed. Unless they totally make it crap on ps3 intentionally, there's no reason to hate.
vallencer  +   1162d ago
I'm glad you only have one bubble. So that way I only have to read one entry of your crap when I click on Nintendo articles or anything Sony related.

Seriously though why would they NOT make it for other systems?? More systems equal more money and it's a great idea because more people get to play amazing games.
MikeMyers  +   1162d ago
A slap in the face would be to have MGS5 be exclusive to the Xbox 360. Otherwise it's not just because it might be on multiple platforms. The only people who think it's a slap in the face are fanatics that keep the console wars alive.
ronin4life  +   1162d ago
Sure. They owe it to sony.

But by that logic, they owe it to Nintendi too, as the "solid" series wouldn't have existed if not for the original MG for nes.

Soooo.... perhaps MGS should never have been on ps1? After all, they owed it to Nintendo, right?
PraxxtorCruel  +   1162d ago
No! What you are is just a damn fan boy. Grow up, you do realize it is way more beneficial if the game is across multiple platforms as it increases the likelihood of more games being produced.
darkpower  +   1162d ago
Well, in Mika's defense, we DO know how retarded Microsoft loves to be about the multiplatform games they do end up getting, and how developers see major issues with the system specs anymore. Remember what happened with FF13? Tekken 6? Want to know why people fear of the Versus 13 rumors possibly being true?

Hell, we've went over this countless times now, but in the sea of N4G comment filth and people who can't find anything better to do with their lives than troll on here, we shouldn't be surprised that no one ever listens to common sense.

How about: game gets gimped for BOTH systems because MS demands that it gets the same quality on their version that the PS3's had (and we know that the 360 doesn't have nearly as much spec power that the PS3 has), and it would have to fit on up to two discs (maybe three if they are lucky enough to be allowed that many). There would have to be many cuts to the game if the game itself is large (and you know it will be because IT'S FUCKING METAL GEAR, FOR CHRIST'S SAKE).

It's not necessarily because Sony platforms made them popular (Tekken did get popular as a Sony exclusive, and while FF and MG were not started on Sony's platforms, they found their legs on the platforms and got mainstream popularity from being on the platforms). It's because of the fear that there'll be too much meddling coming from Microsoft (which we know they do; don't pretend it hasn't happened before) for Sony faithful to not feel like they are getting screwed out of what would otherwise be a good game.
MikeMyers  +   1161d ago
darkpower, you're over-reacting. MGS4 had long waits between chapters, so why would it being on multiple discs for the Xbox 360 matter? Also to say the Xbox 360 doesn't have nearly as much power is hyperbole. You make it sound like the Wii in comparison, far from it. All your comment does is provide proof that there are still people out there who keep the flames ignited between the two systems. Was Burnout Paradise that much better on the PS3 even though it was the lead platform for Criterion? So let's not start the whole cycle again like we're going back in time to 2006 and trolling forums about how much more powerful the PS3 is.

Hideo Kojima is not going to make a inferior product on the PS3 just because his next installment might come to the Xbox 360. He has enough experience with the hardware. They also have a new Fox engine that looks better than MGS4. Times have changed, it's just too bad some gamers haven't.

You're clearly misinformed. The Metal Gear franchise has never been Sony-exclusive. Metal Gear 1 was out well before the PlayStation ever hit the scene. MGS2 was on Xbox and PC, MGS1: Twin Snakes, was on Gamecube, MGS3 was on Xbox and also now the 3DS. MGS4 is the only numbered title that is actually exclusive in any way.

Personally, MGS5 can go to 360, or PC, or Wii U or a fuckin toaster for all I care. As long as the game is good and pushes the series forward then I will buy it day 1 and enjoy the hell out of it.

When it comes to platforms the only thing I actually care about is that I would like to see it on the Vita. Yeah the graphics would have to be scaled down, audio would need to be heavily compressed and re-encoded, whatever they need to do that's fine. I'd just love to take it with me wherever I go, bonus points for cross buy, cross controller, and cross save/"transfarring".
Aghashie  +   1161d ago

long load time between chapters on mg4 was due to storage limitations (small HDD) on 1st gen ps3. but the whole game is delivered with uncompressed textures, mapping and audio. something still to this day, impossible to achive on others game systems.


I agree with you. after what happens to ff13 I fear for any non exclusive mayor title going multiplatform. I don't mind the game going multi, come on... everybody should be able to enjoy a great game on their system of choice. but I fear that microsoft would request the game to be comparably equal on their system vs the competitors system. and we all know how the story ends... its not sony's fault that xbox uses the dvd as the primary media format. so, why to punish Sony for trying to rise the bar?

nukeitall  +   1161d ago

I think you got it wrong, it isn't that Sony made these games popular, but rather these games made the Playstation popular.

No console (at least in the past) is worth anything without the games and 3rd party developers by far outnumber first party.

None of these developers owes Sony anything, and on the contrary console manufacturers owe developers.

Remember how, prior to MS, these developers were treated like dirt by these console manufacturers?

These Japanese manufacturers didn't care about how easy a console is to develop for.

That said, developers want the "MOST" people possible playing their game, not loyalty to console that can turn around and stab them in the back. Remember, consoles are a closed platform!

If you as a fan feels stabbed in the back, it's likely more because you are a fangirl without knowing it. =)

Aghashie, so bluray is the key component? Is that why so many PC games use the format?

You know what's tiring, seeing endless arguments over such non-essential things. If people really want games to not be dumbed down per-say, then they really need to start supporting the PC platform. The differences in the PS3 and Xbox 360 are minor in comparison to what we saw on the Wii and what we are seeing on the PC. Both the PS3 and Xbox 360 lie somewhere in the middle between those two other platforms. For 6 years we've been hearing nonsense from both camps going at it back and forth and in the end it really didn't change much or do anything. To this day the games look and play awfully familiar on both the PS3 and Xbox 360. We've all seen the head-to-head comparisons and most games are very close. These references about which is better or more powerful have become redundant.

Sony isn't raising the bar, that bar was already raised years ago by the PC. So anyone who truly cares about games being the best they can possibly be should be writing to Konami and asking for a PC version. Go play Far Cry 3 and tell us all how the Xbox 360 is holding back the PS3. If anything both systems are holding all games back, which is why it's time for new hardware. It's not the Xbox 360's fault the PS3 version is just as bad as the Xbox 360 version when compared to the PC. Oddly enough both the PS3 and Xbox 360 are fairly close. How weird is that? It must be because of the DVD format, is that it? Same thing with Battlefield 3. In either case bluray didn't make much of a difference, now did it? Which is funny considering how open the Far Cry 3 world is. In fact it's much more open and larger than any MGS game. Having this game on multiple DVD's is not going to ruin the experience for PS3 owners who will likely get it on one disc. Xbox 360 owners will have to suffer from changing them, so don't worry about it.

MGS5 will tel the story of Big Boss, and his years after PW and GZ so it won't be a big deal really, after all, they only need MGS 3 which they have got.

but i don't know if this is MGS5, since the character, which totally looks like big boss has lost his left hand while in the end of MGS4 he has a left hand so it is weird.

Anyway, what i had heared and read was that MGS5 will be about Big Boss and GZ is a prequel to it like PW.
nukeitall  +   1161d ago
If you can only sell a game to people that can play the previous iteration, you are in for some rough times.


Because your audience likely doesn't expand much. Most of these games don't have a coherent story, let alone the poor presentation. My guess, nobody cares about the events other than the ardent fans. Kojima isn't known for his story telling. =)

That said, many Playstation owners switched this generation or even own more than one console, so why not?

Just like this gen, it will be similar i rekon with next XBOX dominating the biggest market, North America and next Playstation rule everywhere else.

With the popularity of Xbox this gen, they cannot avoid loosing million on M$ platform. Third Party exclusives are almost non existance today gaming world.

Just like hideo Kajima said, the new fox engine was created to play on next gen systems and currently only demoed on PC with M$'s DX11 features as seen on latest MGS trailer.

Sony never dominated Japan. They have been playing second fiddle to nintendo.

The 3ds is about to pass ps3 LIFETIME sales in the region. Nintendo has ALL the major franchises locked up. And a full year(at least) head start to build even better relations with 3rd parties, which already out-do sonys support structure.

"Nintendo is THE most relevent of the big 3." LOL @ronin4life, to you maybe.

You know the last "revelant" nintendo game that won a game of the year award was? Ocarina of time on N64 the only other one was Golden Eye. The N64 was the last time nintendo was "revelant" to the industry. You know how many technical awards the wii or nintendo have won recently? Absolutely ZERO. The industry likes to keep employing its university made game designers/artists employed by making complex game engines with graphics and physics and not making mario games on a nintendo system, sorry.
admiralvic  +   1162d ago
@ Ippiki Okami

Awards mean very little, since most Nitnendo series continue the same gameplay mechanics (which make them fun), but turn people off declaring them a winner of anything. Thats why CoD can get as many high scores as it wants, sell more than anything else, be the most played online game and still lose to title like Borderlands 2. (which deserves it)

As far as the topic goes... I don't see why this is a rumor? The only rumor is whither or not the game is Metal Gear Solid V, it's already been "confirmed" to be multiplatform or thats a "troll" and this will MAGICALLY turn out to be Metal Gear Solid V...ita. Sure Kojima and others may or may not want to keep it exclusive to Sony, but games cost WAY too much to build now a days. I rather have an over the top game with an INSANE budget, than a above average (perhaps way above average?) title exclusive to the PS3.
ronin4life  +   1162d ago
Which is why Mario galaxy ISN'T the highest rated game of the gen? Oh wait...

And just ask RPG fans which game they would prefer: ff13 or the last story.

And (while this is debatable) all thid gen, when ps360 was being over run by the same 3 genres en masse, the wii held some of the most original and inventive new 3rd party ips of the gen.

This isn't even taking into account the mammoth sales they have amassed, or the complete domination of the handheld market. All while remaining the most well known household name in the industry with 1 year of losses out of 30+.

So yes, they are the most powerful company. Most well known. Most influential. Most relevant.

joeorc  +   1161d ago
"the games bound to be worse than when it was exclusive" I have a friend who believes that :/"

For good reason, but not the reason , many here even think, i would imagine its based on the fear the game play would change from stealth to "Completely" an Action Type of Game like this one:


Many Times on forums such as these, you had mainly heard many of the fan's on the XBOX360 that just wanted MGS4 as a "gloating point" we took yet another Exclusive away from the playstation platform, that may bother some people. But the real bother was the real blunt truth of the matter, is the many of those same fan's said MGS4 was Quote a " Interactive Movie" so what happend to the next MGS Game? it went from Mainly a stealth Type game over to this:


from stealth/action Hybrid with mainly cutting out the stealth part!

MGS started out as mainly a stealth type game , and has been that way for quite some time, its always good to try something new, but some fan's of the series would want to play a mainly stealth Game with more interactive background story being told to flesh out the game, more story instead of Mainly Action button Mashing. if you want mainly Action Button mashing there is already quite a good number of those already. in fact there is already going to be one of these already,


Many of the fans may think the MGS franchise may get changed to something more along the lines of the Action type instead of the stealth type because majority of the main fans on the xbox360 platform that said they wanted Metal Gear Solid 4 beacause a) they would Gloat have to get one less platform because all the playstation exclusives was being taken by the xbox. B) to boast about taking yet another exclusive. C) Many of those same people said they see MGS4 as a interactive movie!

So is this more about getting the game to play it because they like the MGS series, or is it more about just boasting about stealing another "seen exclusive from the playstation Platform, and they could care less about the stealth game play. and if it changes play from stealth to Action thats ok than because they like Action game play over stealth anyway?

That is what i have seen as the main complaint about MGS going multiplatform, not that it goes to another platform mainly, its attitude of certain gamers on the xbox that the platform its going to manly has fans that would rather play an action game and would want MGS series changed to more like this:


than play an Interactive Movie!

ok so

ground zeros no exclusive
mgs 5 will not be exclusive-unless sony pays which i doubt they will

kojima is a geek tech freak in a way so unless sony just blows his mind with a tech he feels like he can do special things mgs 5 will not be exclusive.

sony is in no position to loose money on its next machine so expect a profit from day one, price point of $399-349 is the max they will go

they have learn a lot from ps3, just look at Vita price point. They have realized to be successful quickly you have to give value to consumers and a consumer friendly price point

also my last point is development is getting very expensive and for next gen its only gonna go up so it really doesn't make sense to have any 3rd party games exclusives, unless a company writes a big enough check even than it maybe timed exclusive

I expect Next Generation launch MGS 5 title in 2014 on PS4/XB3/WiiU?/PC?.

MGR, and MG: Ground Zeros in 2013 for current gen. MGS 5 making the leap to next-gen. Just fits to me. I wouldn't suspect them all at one time. I just wonder who is in MGS 5: The phantom Pain. As far as I can tell Big Boss, and Snake had all their limbs in MGS 4.

MGS 5 revolves around who exactly we don't know. Is it in old era with MGS 3, PW, Ground Zeroes, or is it in modern/future era with post MGS 4 content?

I personally expect MGS Ground Zeros to define the new Zero and MGS 5: The Phantom Pain to define the new 1 or 100. As Big Boss stated at the end of MGS 4. It all starts with Zero or in this case Multiple zeros? :P
Gamer1982  +   1161d ago
MGS brand goes hand in hand with the PS brand. Cannot see the main series going multi-platform. Its partly the reason why people buy PS consoles. Plus its a Japanese developer this is the key here. Japanese developeres prefer PS and Nintendo(Konami, Square-Enix,Level 5) and American devs prefer Xbox(EA,EPIC). Its all to do with sales first and foremost. That might change next gen as release dates did at the beginning of the this gen with great support from Square-Enix for 360 but it fell to the side once PS3 gained power and eventually we saw more PS3 exclusives and less 360 exclusives.

I was a lil butthurt at first because I thought the 360 version might slow down the PS3 version, but honestly, I have faith in Kojima to make an incredible experience on both. Not to mention EVERYONE deserves to experience MGS as it is an incredible series. I do hope that this is the start of even higher sales and popularity for this game, as long as they dont let the money get to them.

It's not shocking Kojima spoke on bringing his games to multi-platforms before
Knight_Crawler  +   1161d ago
I remember him saying that the reason the built the Fox engines was because they wanted all games to play exactly the same on all consoles and that all future Konamis games will be multiplat.

Also Sony would have to offer Konami a huge check to keep this game exclusive - MGS will do GTA4 numbers when its release on all consoles.
Gamer1982  +   1161d ago
He also took a swipe at other consoles in MGS4.
Snookies12  +   1162d ago
If it's next-gen it'll be exclusive. If it's this generations, it'll be multi-platform. Kojima likes to take advantage of new hardware and see what he can do with it (usually on the PlayStation side.) He's already done that this generation with MGS4. So unless it's next-gen like I said, it'll probably be multi-plat.
majiebeast  +   1162d ago
For me mgs4 would have been the perfect end of the franchise but its too big for Konami to let go. So they keep pestering Kojima to make more.
Ace_Pheonix  +   1162d ago
Hey look at that, you got your perfect end, stop buying and playing them then. It's all over for you. Most importantly, bitching about it is pretty lame, dude. Kojima has his own studio, Kojima just opened an entirely new studio in NA, I'm pretty sure he does what he wants.
MysticStrummer  +   1162d ago
If he did what he wanted he would have left Metal Gear behind a long time ago. He's tried a couple of times actually.
Ace_Pheonix  +   1162d ago
@MysticStrummer, he has tried to turn it over to different people to take the helm, but always jumps right back into the middle of it. Because he loves it. He's like that boyfriend that always talks about leaving his girlfriend, but never does and secretly can't get enough of her.

meh im a huge MGS fan but now that its multiplatform game from day 1 It just another game release its not special like other MGS releases
Brownghost  +   1161d ago
That's a great reason to deny Xbox players from trying it out.
League_of_Draven  +   1162d ago
It's not exclusive cause it's not MGS5. It's just a repeat of a bunch of people thinking this is MGS5 (much like they thought Peace Walker was MGS5).
andrewf91  +   1162d ago
Which is why it's rumored to be MSG5 at the moment. Nothings truly confirmed yet.
Megaton  +   1162d ago
Pretty sure it'll be on all platforms. Maybe even the Wii U. As long as the weakest link doesn't hold the others back, who cares?
Hufandpuf  +   1162d ago
Not bashing the Wii U or anything but if the weak CPU on it is true then I doubt they will release it on the Wii U.
DeadlyFire  +   1161d ago
Well if you consider them possibly releasing on PS3/X360 then WiiU is not out of the equation as it should be equal to them or better with tech. Even if Nintendo has gone the low power route. They could have 880Gflops in the WiiU. That's twice what the X360 has without even trying.

hype is less for me when they announced that GZ will be multi platform , but i get over it , it doesn't matter because kojima now is not depending in cut scenes and demo that we saw proved that so it's not gonna effect the game , it will improve it and make them focus in gameplay more then cut scenes , it's kojima that we talk about so i trust him...

but i welcome V to be multi platform , next generation will have strong consoles , i don't think they will limit each other , not like this one ...
TotalHitman  +   1162d ago
I don't actually care whether it is an exclusive or not. It's Metal Gear and I am going to enjoy it.
GraveLord  +   1162d ago
Uh...of course not. Metal Gear is multiplatform now. We've known this for months.

VonBraunschweigg  +   1162d ago
Pfff, I remember the week the HD collection was released on both machines here in Holland, if you visited a videogamestore and didn't know any better you would have thought it was an xBox exclusive. Shelves were full of it:) No PS3 version available untill the 3rd store.
raiden-49  +   1162d ago
If you go to the Moby Dick site then you will see only two consoles xbox 360 and ps3, not saying they might bring it over to other consoles

As long as his work isn't effected negatively by this i really don't care so long as i get it myself
AngelicIceDiamond  +   1162d ago
The Fox engine has been confirmed as a multiplatform tech. If I'm not mistaken Kojima confirmed its Multiplatform.

But as I mention before a while back optimizations need to be worked right for the 360 port version. a mandatory installation for the Xbox that loads in the textures and helps framerate, performance etc. I really hope the game runs great on the Xbox version.

I'm not too worried about the PS3 version since I'm 90% certain its the main platform and will be treated right.
Omnislash  +   1162d ago
It SHOULD be PS3 exclusive, if you want it to be the best like MGS4 was...
j-blaze  +   1162d ago
stick with your shitty overrated ND games, KP nor MGS series is owned by Sony.

there is a REASON why KP made Fox engine multiplat and bring MGS: GZ to 360....also, MGS4 will not be exclusive forever u know, Kojima-san will eventually bring the game to other platforms "wii u or next gen MS console" just like the HD collection.

MGS5 will be 100% multiplatform...thanks!
Hicken  +   1161d ago
And here I thought I'd never see you on this site again. Damn.

Naughty Dog is arguably one of- if not THE- best developer studios this generation. Anyone who thinks otherwise is delusional. Oh, I guess that's you.

Fox engine is multplat so they're not limited. That doesn't mean EVERY game they make will use it.

And MGS4 isn't likely to come to any other system, as it was essentially designed specifically FOR the PS3. It's obvious you haven't played it, as you'd know there are entirely too many brand-related things within the game that would need altering(unless, say, Microsoft wanted to make fun of themselves) in order to get it on another platform.

The HD collection, on the other hand, is a far simpler endeavor; I don't know why people keep bringing that up. Besides, it's not as if the sales of said collection were really all that good on the 360, which would make one question the sense of continuing to make ALL upcoming games multiplat.

Don't know why I'm bothering to respond to you. Too late now, though.
8bitHero  +   1161d ago
im sorry but why did you just call him san? we're not in japan. i can never understand why some people do that shit.
BlaqMagiq24  +   1161d ago
I'm guessing you're a butthurt xbox fanboy who's never had the chance to play Uncharted 2, a game that's rated higher than any 360 exclusive or MGS 4 for that matter.

And you're delusional if you think that game will ever go multiplatform. If you ever seen the nods to the original PS then you would know it's never coming. But you wouldn't know since you never played it.
Swiggins  +   1162d ago
MGS4 was easily one of the worst in the series...It had fine controls sure, but the stealth was off in that it treated itself more like a TPS than a stealth game.

The storyline was somewhere in the realm of freaking bonkers on a bat-shit sandwhich. The climax was alright, but everything before and after was confusing tripe.

The enemies weren't nearly as memorable as they were in games like MGS3 and MGS1.

The loading times were abominable...I'm sorry, there is no excuse for having to install each episode and have it take 5 minutes, this is the future dammit!

Mind you, this is all objective, but MGS4 isn't fit to lick the boots of MGS3.
jessupj  +   1161d ago
You're crazy
Omnislash  +   1161d ago
youre obviously a one bubble troll. Naughty Dog is one of the best developers this gen. Another thing, the unreal engine is multiplat, yet Gears Of war isnt on PS3. There are things that belong on the PS3 and that is Metal Gear. Anyway enjoy your Call of Duty.


lol yeah I can understand if you call him Mr.Kojima though...

"MGS4 was easily one of the worst in the series...It had fine controls sure, but the stealth was off in that it treated itself more like a TPS than a stealth game. "

You obviously did not play that game to get the big boss emblem, the stealth in that game was amazing and if you think otherwise, play in the boss extreme and get 0 alerts/kills/recovery items and then come back and talk to me.

"The storyline was somewhere in the realm of freaking bonkers on a bat-shit sandwhich. The climax was alright, but everything before and after was confusing tripe."

Its Metal Gear. The story is so complex that its hard to keep track of it, only real fans of the series would understand what really goes on, maybe you didnt play the previous MGS games.

"The enemies weren't nearly as memorable as they were in games like MGS3 and MGS1"

The enemies were a saute to the original MGS1 enemies hence their names (Crying Wolf/ Sniper Wolf. Screaming Mantis/ Psycho Mantis etc...) Not to mention that MGS4 was all about bringing back the previous MGS games which is what made the game amazing.

"The loading times were abominable...I'm sorry, there is no excuse for having to install each episode and have it take 5 minutes, this is the future dammit!"

They got rid of this with the patch.

" Mind you, this is all objective, but MGS4 isn't fit to lick the boots of MGS3."

Your opinion and thats fine, but dont go saying the game sucks just because you played it once on liquid easy.
TronEOL  +   1162d ago
What I find interesting is that they'll have two Metal Gear Solid games coming out very close together. This game was essentially "announced" or hinted at when they showed off Ground Zeroes.

So the first thing that went through my mind was that it'll be the Playstation-exclusive MGS, while Ground Zeroes is meant to be the game that satisfies the multiplatform group.

I could be incredibly wrong, but it's odd that Rising, Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain would be coming out so quickly for both 360 and PS3. And it's even more surprising that Phantom Pain is being rumoured to be a current generation game.

I'm calling PS4-exclusive myself, but we'll see.

Belking  +   1162d ago
Not gonna happen. They already had their chance. What do you get out of this game being exclusive anyway? Just buy the game and support the devs and stop worrying about what other people can or can't play. It doesn't matter. It's better for the developers if it's multiplat.

Konami has it covered, they don't need help.

stage88  +   1161d ago
Strange move. Since Xbox didn't get MGS4 how are they going to understand the story?

Would have preferred this as a PS exclusive to make sure the quality is there but we'll see.
8bitHero  +   1161d ago
agreed, especisally since its already going to be held down by the aged hardware of the ps3, but now its even gonna be more locked down because it has to accommodate the 360.
8bitHero  +   1161d ago
so i guess its safe to say kojimas not going to keep his word about his transfarring. for those who dont know what im talking about kojima has said before that all his games that use the new fox engine will support transfarring. its a shame, it wouldve been awesome playing these games at school and then continuing on my ps3 when i get home :/ oh well.
xtreampro  +   1160d ago
Who ever said it was exclusive? Didn't you guys here? Kojima doesn't believe in that crap now. MGS5 is going to be multiplatform.

Transfarring isn't only for the PS3, man seriously you fanboys sound more ridiculous by the day.
