Metal Gear Rising Gets Exclusive VR Missions on PS3

Posted by Dalton Link // Social Media Manager, Konami-

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is, in essence, a best of both worlds. Combining the top-notch action expected from the over-the-top experts at PlatinumGames combined with the deep storytelling and rich narrative of Kojima Productions, it plays to all its strengths. It is a return to form for some, with such classic Metal Gear appearances like Codec calls, Metal Gear Ray, High Frequency Blades and the titular character, Raiden, but infused with new elements like new villains, new allies, and the much-anticipated Blade Mode (try it out now in the demo available on PSN). (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, PS3)

Again with the platform exclusive DLC bullshit. 360 gamers pay just as much for their game as me so they should get the same content, or the game should be 2-3$ less on 360. Its the same the other way around.

Hopefully this platform exclusivity BS gets cut out next-gen.

I doubt it will but it needs to change for gamers sake.

They're just apologizing for the Bayonetta port.
Mocat  +   536d ago
yeah i was gonna get this game for xbox but after they annoucned exclusive skins i said forget it and now this.

I really Doubt it's about that....did it cross your mind that mabe MABE, I dose not fix in the 360's disk?! This could just be a small advantage the blueray has that people have just not seen...
I really think its just cuz of that, and I don't expect a game company to waste more money on it if it was the case.

It's probably not tha, simply because exclusive DLC content is *usually* a one time key which is used to download the content (trying to fight the used game market along the way).

@onyoursistersback

Jesus, it's "maybe" not "mabe". And no I doubt that's why. It's likely because Sony paid them. Same thing happened to AC3, it has nothing to do with the blu ray being able to hold more.

PS3 was getting DLC late on most games or none at all, I think PS3 needs its fair share of exclusive content you know.
Knushwood Butt  +   536d ago
This.

Swings and roundabouts.

I think this whole platform exclusive DLC and of course TIMED DLC are NOT cool. Both need to die right away. Publishers are getting away with so much crap this generation! NOT COOL AT ALL.
mochachino  +   536d ago
As a former Live Gold member I'd argue that 360 gamers pay more, If you buy 6 games a year add 10 bucks to the price of each game in Live Costs.

If you buy 12 add $5 per games, etc.

Smartest gaming related thing I did all gen was not renewing my Live subscription last December, although, I haven't really used my 360 since...it seems boring now, almost depressing.

@majiebeast

I know it sucks, but it's not going anywhere anytime soon. It's really there to make games seem more supportive of one console over the other, and Metal Gear is more PlayStation than Xbox so it makes sense.

Same with Battlefield vs Call of Duty.

EA = Sony
Activision = MS

Thank **** i'm getting it on Ps3. I would complain about it but I don't care anymore. This **** is always happening. Look at Bethesda and the ps3

Nothing ses "Metal Gear" like some good old VR missions though

The look and design of the VR missions look great.

I wanted MGS4 to get VR missions, but i'm glad this is getting them.
Nelson M  +   536d ago
Well of Course !
Hanso  +   536d ago
ps3 oh yeah 30 awesome VR Mission fantastic!
This shows again Metal Gear is a PS franshise well kind of :D
Norrison  +   536d ago
MGS is a PS franchise, Metal Gear started on the NES
RyuX19  +   536d ago
Wrong, Metal Gear started on the MSX a computer system.

No, it means the Ps3 version has more. You don't HAVE to get anything thing really.

I would be a little pissed with this content crap, but ss how am playing the first MGS on Xbox I'll be fine.Hopefully all other MGS/Kojima follow close behind.

i like how people complain, its not like the 360 didnt get exclusive DLC,
tomb raider underworld dlc that necer came to ps3
tomb raider gets dlc first on 360
resident evil 6 gets dlc first on 360
almost every activision game gets timed or permanent exclusive dlc on 360
i hate this practice as welll but i just find it ironic at how 360 gamers complain when it used to happen to the ps3,and 360 got all of the cool extras, whats the differnce.
kostchtchie_  +   536d ago
exactly, its shit both, ways developers/publishers need start doing it for all or not at all

This must be a very weird way of Platinum saying "sorry we made someone else port over Bayonetta to PS3"...
RyuX19  +   536d ago
Platinum does not make these decisions. Konami does. Do people not realize that developers barely have any power when it comes to stuff like this?
Ezz2013  +   536d ago
they said they are sorry
with vanquish looking better on ps3
Toon_Link  +   536d ago
I always love the VR missions can't wait to give them a try.
RyuX19  +   536d ago
I just want to note that VR Missions are ALREADY IN THE GAME, the DLC is just for an extra 30 VR missions. The game already has it's own set of VR Missions.
black911  +   536d ago
Maybe it has more to do with Bluray and not DLC! Just think for a second. Why does ever ps3 exclusive use over 20gigs but 3rd party games only fill up dvd9. Are developers cuttin content just to fit 1 dvd9.
