The debate: should Ground Zeroes be saved for PS4?

OPM: This week two MGS obsessives discuss the merits of a current gen or PS4 Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes. What platform would suit Snake better? (Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Next-Gen, PC, PS3, Xbox, Xbox 360)

why the hell this site treat every multiplat game as playstation exclusive? god i hope MS makes a deal with Kojima Productions to make the next numberd MGS exclusive on their next gen console!

While I agree with you on the treating it like its still exclusive part, I completely disagree on the other part. When the game is done everyone should enjoy it.

But still a better title would be "The debate: should Ground Zeroes be saved for Next-gen?"

pretty sure the title works for a multiplatform game. for example ground zeroes could be for ps4 and for 360. i think the game looks too good and in order to keep it's quality it should come out for ps4. if there's a ps4 available when this game comes out I'd probably get it for the next gen system. Just more of an incentive to get the next system earlier.

I'm not gon lie, but I too forgot this game was on the 360 also

The site is called officialplaystationmagazine, so of course they will make it seem that way. Have you been to oxmonline or any other Oficial Xbox website? They do the same thing with Multiplatform titles.

LOL j-blaze is being sarcastic since all the sony fan-boys shat their pants when when the OXM article listed a couple of of multi-plats in their top 10 xbox games of 2012 list, even though title was 'xbox games' not 'xbox exclusives'... huge difference and easy to differentiate if you have basic reading comprehension skills.

Either that or j-blaze is a stupid.

@j-blaze did any confirm this is multi plat?if not then it could be a ps exclusive because gears of war,excluding 1 is still an xbox only title even though epic stated they own the ip.

Yes, pretty sure everyone saw the XBOX 360 and PS3 tile card at the end of the trailer.

why the hell would you want that? Do you really want the next mgs game to be a kinect game? Then you truly don't deserve to call yourself a mgs fan

Nah. Ground zeroes is a prologue to MGS5. So MGS5 can be saved for ps4.
wwm0nkey  +   981d ago
The Phantom Pain aka MGSV is also listed for 360/PS3 right now. Obviously the games will probably be cross-gen since the Fox Engine is pretty flexible and already made with next-gen in mind.
Perhaps. He did say that his next project would use transfarring... so that means either Phantom Pain is gonna be on Vita or the next gen consoles.

I believe MGSV is actually MGS Vita. Since when does Kojima use Roman Numerals?

@ PygmelionHunter

It is kinda odd. Obviously Ground Zeroes takes place during Big Boss's time and the Phantom Pain takes place during Solid Snakes time. So they're either two different games or the same game that spans different time periods.

I'm still trying to figure out where the heck does this game and The Phantom Pain fit in the timeline...

As for saving it for the PS4.. NO! The faster it releases, the better, same goes for The Phantom Pain (assuming both of 'em aren't the same!), these games are looking fantastic already on PS3/360 specs.
evilhasitsway  +   981d ago
my opion on this is that there is so much rumor that ps4 posibly coming out this time next yr that it might be on both systems as muliti platform game. yes mgs is usually a sony exclusive but nothin was said about it being muliti platform for two sony systems.
evilhasitsway  +   981d ago
i can for one say that if phatom pain is mgs 5 that it isnt a vita game it would either be a ps3 or ps4 game. but honestly to me i think phatom pain is mgs ground zeros. just one game not two. but we will see by this time next year. and on top of that im probley gonna get heat for saying this but xbox just doesnt have the graphics that ps3 does not even close.
NavydAd  +   981d ago

if you want it to look half as good as the pc footage/gameplay/trailer than yes

if you want it to look like this;


then no

I'm going with PLEASE YES!

The demo they showed for ground zeroes was with a pc with specs similar to the ps3. Also a pc version for ground zeroes has not been announced at all.
landog  +   981d ago

sure it was, they just happened to have an 8 year old pc that they felt like demoing the game on

it will look nothing like that trailer/gameplay they showed running on any 7-8 year old console, stop believeing everything people say

look at these gears of war 3 "screenshots" (bullshots);



and a real, actual screen-capture;


devs LOVE doing this to gamers, the real game always looks soooo much worse, gears 3 looked just like gears 2, yet every gamer under the sun saw those fake screens of PC footage from the actual creation of the game and went bananaas

as far as there not being a pc version, you do know all games are made on pc right, regardless of if they are released on pc, thats why devs have endless supplies of bullshots to trick console gamers with, the bullshots are what it looks like on pc.

Considering what was shown, I have no problem with waiting and this being a next gen title. We got the definitive MGS title this gen with MGS4, we also got the definitive Portable iteration with Peace Walker.... I think we can wait to make this as perfect as it can be.
extermin8or  +   981d ago
I hope it's on ps4 if the ps4 isn't backwards compatible because i will be getting the ps4 and this, so if th ps4 ins't backwards compatible I'd be annoyed.
TheGamerDood  +   981d ago
The majority of the user base will still be on PS3 for maybe the first two years after the PS4 is released so a PS3 version is a must if they want to make some profit but I have no doubts that they'll have a PS4 version ready to go on day one.

MGS4 came out about a year and a half after the PS3. People picked up a PS3 just to play it, so it's probably not much of an issue. It kind of depends on what stage of development these games are in, and when they plan on releasing them, but if either console is releasing next year, then it means it will probably come within a year of the next-gen console releases.
Norrison  +   981d ago
People think this game looks too amazing for current gen, it doesn't, the gameplay trailer was filled with low res textures. The rain and lighting effects made up for it, giving an amazing showcase which made it look a lot better.

Norrison basically said everything there's to it. This will be on current-gen. These visual can still be achieved on current-gen, belive me. It just shows how powerful the Godfather's engine is. I have no problem sharing the gaming experience with my MS brothers. I just hope the PS3 version won't lack quality cuz of multiplatforming.
Anyway, njoi this on current-gen.
