Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes to Launch on PC

Hardcore Gamer: It's unclear if this means Kojima is looking to release the new game day and date on PC, or be planning something down the line, but it certainly seems like Ground Zeroes is heading to the platform. (Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, PC)

I really hope this is true. The more platforms the merrier :).
bayonetta  +   714d ago
agree =]
Dylila  +   714d ago
might as well kojima put the game on pirate bay because most copies for mgs ground zeroes will be pirated on pc
VonBraunschweigg  +   713d ago
Pirates:) This crackdown is a go!

Perhaps Kojima masterminds a hughe Konami ID clusterf*ck on PC that shows who bought it legally and who didn't, and than BAM!
TheGamerDood  +   713d ago
Doesn't the xbox have an issue with bootlegged games? Just have it activate through Steam and that should help curb some of the piracy.
AKS  +   713d ago
@Dylila

I've seen Steam hitting over 6 million online simultaneously at peak hours recently. I personally have purchased over 200 games on Steam alone. Not all people who game on PC are thieves.

until we hear all the pc elitist bashing consoles. But its good to hear more people can enjoy such a great franchise

It wouldn't be the first time MGS released on PC
zmack  +   714d ago
Yeah, MGS 1 and 2 were actually on PC. They weren't the best of ports, but they got the job done.

I would love to play this on pc.. Graphics mods will bring it to real life graphics..
Somebody  +   713d ago
Looking at the disagrees, it seems that a number of people doesn't like graphic mods.
papashango  +   713d ago
Or could be they know that the pc version will make the console versions look pathetic
I'll be getting it on PC then. Hopefully there is a mod to sneak around as Sunny (MGS4).
RyuX19  +   713d ago
The way you troll you don't deserve to touch anything Metal Gear related. Kojima would be ashamed of you.
adorie  +   713d ago
What's wrong with getting it on PC? Heck, if the PS4 is good and I end up getting that, I'd get it on both PC and PS4.
RyuX19  +   713d ago
@adorie what I'm referring to has nothing to do with Ground Zeroes My_Name_BTW_Is_Dante is a troll who goes to every Metal Gear Rising article just to talk trash about it.

That would great, I'd love to turn Fox engine up to 11.
Batzi  +   714d ago
Title misleading. The article suggests that it was confirmed that GZ was coming on PC.
VonBraunschweigg  +   713d ago
Even worse, the PC version seems to be finished already. If you check the jobdetails at the bottom of the ad (at Gamasutra) you see the job is for work on PS3 and xBox 360 only.

Kojima, you sneaky bastard!
pandehz  +   714d ago
If it comes on PC I will be very very happy.
SonyNGP  +   714d ago
I wouldn't mind playing Ground Zeroes in 1080p at 120fps c:
2pacalypsenow  +   714d ago
great a multiplatform day 1 MGS game R.I.P MGS
BiggCMan  +   713d ago
Wtf is this? So the quality of the story and game play will go down in MGS just because it's not only on Playstation? The only thing that will SLIGHTLY change between versions is frame rate and brightness. If that's enough to ruin a Metal Gear game for you, that is quite frankly one of the saddest thing I have ever heard.
NaiNaiNai  +   714d ago
Would look amazing.

Of course, MGS2/3 look amazing when I emulate them on PC upscaled 6 times with 8xAA. putting ps3 and 360 games to shame.
cpayne93  +   713d ago
Uh, even when it is emulated with improvements it doesn't put ps3 and 360 games to shame. Looks good but compared to gow3 or mgs 4? Nope.
e-p-ayeaH  +   714d ago
That would tempt me to get a gaming pc rather than a PS4 i wont lie.
BiggCMan  +   713d ago
Dunno about skipping PS4 for a PC. As much as I love my computer and how amazing I can make my games look, I wouldn't miss PS4 for anything because of those exclusives.
e-p-ayeaH  +   713d ago
but MGS isnt a PS exclusive anymore so it seems that alone seems enough for me.

GTA5,Ground Zeroes,Battlefield 4 and other games with better performances than next gen consoles is quite tempting.

BiggCMan  +   713d ago
It is tempting, that's why I gave in in 2011, I got tired of crappy looking games on consoles (and some people think the current consoles aren't old...) But I wasn't speaking for Metal Gear, I was talking about the large list of titles that Sony has in their line up because of all the companies they have bought. I don't want to miss out on things like inFamous, Killzone, Last of Us, Beyond Two Souls, Last Guardian etc.. Can't get any of those on PC, and that's why I can't go without a PS4.
Norrison  +   713d ago
Why not both?
N0S3LFESTEEM  +   713d ago
The new consoles look to be getting rid of the compatibility problems of this generation. The rumored specs are similar... so game development won't be hindered for any console or platform. Good news is that they'll share more in common with PC than any other console released to date so I think we'll be seeing a lot more releases coming up. Piracy will eventually even out if internet speeds stay the same... once they drop DVD the games will pick up in size until it takes a week to download off of a bittorrent site which would make it easier for ISP's to pinpoint.
MrGunny94  +   714d ago
Sweet no need for me to buy a next gen console then :)
Qrphe  +   713d ago
Superior version of the game confirmed then.
SprigganN4G  +   713d ago
Yeah! 120Hz magic
nofallouthero  +   713d ago
looking forward to it also konami other game castevania LOS2 is coming to pc which is kinda weird because it wasnt that great but its a good sign.
kwyjibo  +   713d ago
Both next gen consoles are just PCs. Going to be so easy for third parties to go multiplatform. Awesome news.
TheKayle  +   713d ago
well if it will go out for pc will surely.. run better on it.....just coz ps4 and xbox cant push as a gtx680 (and this time is so sad to admit that both console that we call "next.gen" r going out with already old and mid lvl gpu over :( ).....so pc version for me (x2 evga 660 ti oc sli= 100 fps full hd :D )

From Fox, two, perhaps three phantoms were born.
Buljo  +   713d ago
Holy fucking shit YES if this is true.
Shuyin  +   713d ago
I hate how some PC elitists are arrogant filthy douchebags. Don't talk like the next-gen consoles will be so inferior. Without those 'inferior' consoles, especially Playstation, you wouldn't have exclusives of such a high level.

Keep your wet dreams for yourselves.
tachy0n  +   713d ago
at the time your lame comment was posted no PC elitist has bothered to bash consoles.

funny because last time i checked gaming started on the PC, games are created on PC's and even though many have said PC gaming would die, it never did.

the PC has more exclusives than the x360 and PS3 combined, so no, troll, exclusives are not a problem at all for the PC.

i think this game will be released for PC because its the only way we would really get to see the true power of the FOX engine.

Twignberries  +   713d ago
Agree. But don't you know, if you break down the intellectual dna of a console fanboy, they actually have no real idea about computer technology? So don't make fun. They are born that way.
Shuyin  +   709d ago
Keep dreaming, mate.
Skate-AK  +   713d ago
With PC,PS4, and 720s architecture closer then ever, I see a lot more games being for all 3 platforms and launching at the same time. No more delays for the PC version like Assassin's Creed.
Twignberries  +   713d ago
Dude same goes for every console generation though. At the te of their release they are (roughly) around the equivalent of a mid to low-high end pc (if that makes sense), until 2-3 months later of course, when pcs are back to miles ahead.
N0S3LFESTEEM  +   713d ago
First time PC has been this far ahead of the curve and they haven't even released anything but rumors. I think a 1.6ghz clock is pathetic... sure optimization is a thing but that clock on a PC would be laughable unless it was a laptop.
porkChop  +   713d ago
In terms of power, yes. But the XB3 and PS4 are actually using PC parts this time. That makes a huge difference, and will make porting extremely quick and easy.
ninjahunter  +   713d ago
People need to cool it on the "mods make it better"
Not that many big PC releases have mod support, and MGS is definatelly one of the titles that will be lacking it.
porkChop  +   713d ago
1) This shouldn't surprise anyone as Kojima himself stated that the Fox Engine was specifically built as a multlatform engine because he wants to develop for ALL platforms.

2) This isn't necessarily about Ground Zeroes. "latest Metal Gear Solid" just means it's a new MGS game. It could very well be a completely different game from GZ, and it's likely considering that this sounds like a next-gen only game and GZ has already been confirmed for PS3 and 360.
CrimsonFox13  +   713d ago
Oculus Rift, please.
Scenarist  +   713d ago
I guess with this gen the only people that will be getting the PC version will have "enthusiast" class rigs
