Konami reveals today a new batch of Metal Gear Solid 4 screenshots.
Look's fantastic. I think MGS visual's are seriously under rated, everything look's very clean and sharp, it's got everything you need.
3 months tomorrow guys!!
I absolutely agree, and I love the look. The only thing about MGS4 that I don't like is that the clothing looks really 'plastic'.
for me to know Burnout like the back of my hand, have mastered DMC4, and have played the heck outta GTAIV. Can't wait.
never really been into MGS but it does look good. i might have to buy this.
snake in rex?! this game is gonna be awesome!
http://www.gametrailers.com... how anyone can see that video and not fall in love with MGS4 is beyond me. The gameplay looks so vastly improved its ridiculous. @might douche It really annoys me the way mgs4 visuals are constantly underrated. Yes i agree it doesn't look as good as killzone or even uncharted but how many games out they can boast visuals that are better than this. I challenge anyone to name 5 console games on any platform that has better visuals
looks like lost planet graphically .
lol how did you come to that conclusion? They don't even have similar art styles
cant wait :)
The way all the screens have a green tint, makes me think of someone who's "sick". :p
Seriously, what's up with that? Will the game actually be that green, or are these just bad quality pics? o_O
@1.1 its called art direction games and films have done things like this for ages. dont hate because its not on 360
Get over yourself, kid.
1.) It was A JOKE.
2.) I've tried every MG game since PS1...and hated them all. I really don't care if it comes to the 360 or not. Kojima is a wannabe film director...nothing more. The MGS gameplay is as laughable, gimmicky and scripted as it ever was...and Cell + 50gb BluRay can't change that. :o
well then it looks like your gonna miss out on a great game. kojima may want to direct films but with over 17mil metal gear iterations sold he must be doing somthing right. plus why do most credible sites usually rate them in the high nines? maybe because there good? oh and the "gimmicky" and "LAUGHABLE" script is what makes fans adore the series.
Can't get the logic behind some of you guys thought process. Like for one if i don't like a game i don't even bother readin the article. You go as far as to comment acting like your above liking this game. Why the hell waist your time makin a comment on it if the series is as bad as you claim?
As a true MGS hardcore fan this game can come in 2D, Black and White and with 0.3 FPS. I don't really care, I just want to know how Kojima-san has mastered yet another magnificent story.
"Kojima is a wannabe film director...nothing more. The MGS gameplay is as laughable, gimmicky and scripted as it ever was...and Cell + 50gb BluRay can't change that. :o" QUOTED...FOR....TRUTH..... And this coming from a diehard MGS fan who ownz them all. (yes, me.)
not a die hard MGS fanboy.
His GARBAGE BOX 3 FIX ME has broken down so he talks trash in here.
@GETPWN aka the PEDOPHILE
you nasty PEDOPHILE ...why are u in this forum
Go play that GARBAGE XBREAK 3 FIX ME that has 70% defective RATE
Jamaicangmr That applies to most of the ps3 guys on here. Doodle for one. Doodle - still with the name calling, I'll use you as a benchmark to judge ALL sony fanboys. And still with the comments but no proof 70% I'll say it again Proof man, Proof.
I've downloaded and watched all the trailers on MGS4 and I must say this is the most overrated piece of crap game ever. The graphics are so-so, the gameplay is unexciting, online has massive framerate issues and the only good thing are the cinematics. Only Sony Zombies can hype this game up the way it has been.
lol. It still looks better than half the games on XBOx 360. If you aren't interested in the game quit downloading the trailers. If you won't buy it why show interest... oh you are jealous. ok that explains it all
"I must say this is the most overrated piece of crap game ever. The graphics are so-so, the gameplay is unexciting, online has massive framerate issues and the only good thing are the cinematics."
We are talking about MGS4 here not Halo.
ahh blue goblin beat me to it!
Can't wait to play it this year.
all of the above
Seen this already like 2 months ago,nevertheless very impressive and still lovely to watch occasionally
ye man these arnt new ILX has seen these trailers b4 (they're just screenshots of trailers) ILX cant wait for Metal Gear ! ILX will not stop playing this on his PS3 !! Jump Out And Play B3yond
Cry and complain fanbot..Metal Gear will forever be a reference in its own league so deal with it
Cool pics ;-P
This game will outsell everything Atari publishes for the next 2 years, COMBINED.....so why are you so happy?
. . . just jokeing!!! LOL
But I can't belive it there isn't any anti-MGS comment yet!
Come on x-boys, where are you?!
BTW, CAN'T WAAAAAAAAAAAAAIT FOR THIS!
come to the open zone!
Game of the year!
Looks really nice! I hope they change some of the enemies though, in the first screen they all look the same. Generic enemies ain't that cool.
On a battlefield most enemies look the same. It's MGS, there will be plenty of enemies and scenario's to be have.....Psycho-mantis FTW!
There is no need to comment on your childish pun's. Man and i did too. But maybe i am the only one that see that there is an awful green hue in some of those pic's. And it seems there isnt any good shadowing or lighting maybe cause of the gamma being so high or something i dont know what it is but something isnt right, which alot of people seem to miss because it MGS. I dont care i will call it out. I am not impressed at all.
Say goodbye to your bubbles man.
Sort of like how James Cameron made sure Terminator 2 had a BLUE sterile look, some person has decided to use a final greenish grade on these screens. Coming from the visual fx industry, its not abnormal to put a final color correct/grade over the film. Its to tie everything together and get you into a certain mood. You know the MGS series ahs always been after achieving that film quality. As far as the gamma + shadows comment, What the hell would gamma have to do anything with shadows? You can clearly see contact shadows for all of che character models, as well as self shadowing. MGS is using actual HDRI lighting & they learned to do light bounce as well(from the KZ2 team, same with uncharted, its the reason shadows are different color hues if you are close to green grass/white stone etc, something only done on the PS3. Not just using an HDRI to choose lighting direction, and having 0 light bounce like Halo3.) so there is no question of the complexity of their lighting setup. People that aren't into MGS or cant buy it will criticize it up and down, but thats not going to stop it from being an amazing title, just before you start pushing and prodding at MGS, come up with an example title to where the problem is illustrated in a better way. example: Characters are all the same! - find another game that is in a open world like MGS, that has 10 unique enemies on screen at once. After you cant find that. Cry and go away.
I need this game... at this point I don't care about Snake, i HAVE to see Laughing Octopus, Raging Raven, and Crying Mantis. MGS has the best bosses EVER!
Hate all you want.Doesnt change the fact that this game has better graphics and sound than any other game on any console.If you owned ps3 and could download all the trailers you would know its not all green
I own all 3 systems and a dslite and a psp. But every trailer i have watched or screens i have seen its washed out regardless. Until i lose my eyesight nobody is changing my view on this. All i need is a pair of eyeballs to see facts, just simple as that.
a new set of eyes then. Because clearly you have no clue what you're looking at. Frequently in movies they saturate the images with a color tone. This is no different. They've done it in all Metal Gears. It's called "ART DIRECTION". If that doesn't suit your tastes then, great. However, it in no way means the game has bad graphics. Saying so only makes you look ignorant.
their are many other games that use a certain color pallet to bring on a certain mood of the game. if a game is soppose to be gritty they end up having a grayish-dark color pallet to depict the gritty action better. which is why i'm confused about halo's color choice because if they are depicting a war why on earth will they have such viid bright colors that hit 100% of the rainbow. In a real war all you are seeing is smoke and and shades of gray. So it's only fitting that you see such a thing in a game setting in the middle of a war Zone, I wonder why COD4 wasn't criticized for having a gray color pallet. Or Gears of war. Just because a Game sport a locked color pallet doesn't make it any less beautiful. Darkness had a dark grayish color pallet due to art direction. Assassin's creed had a Hue of blue saturation through 90 percent of the game to depict the old times of Jerusalem. Rainbow 6 Vegas had a red saturation which was representative of the Vegas Lights, have you ever been to vegas to see it. it was represented quite well in RB6V with that red saturation. If you want pretty colors go play a game that has a mood that supports that. Uncharted supports such things because of it's Nature and heavy focus on platforming and treasure hunting. Go play adventure games or RPGs if you want Bright colors, moods are best represented by color, it's why they have mood stones and instances in cartoons where the characters change colors to show how they feel. It's simple art direction and Mr.Payton has Said it himself that traditionally MGS games have always purposely restricted it self to few color pallets to convey an engrossing story with alot of mood. hence why they're are so many fans, Get over it if not Move the hell on and go look at lost odessey or Blu Dragon.
you guys can talk all you want.mgs4 has better graphics and sound than any 360 game to date
I guess it's true...the games are always greener on the other side.... :p
Cuz he never sees the color, every time he turns on the 360 all he sees is red (rings)
shut up u GARBAGE BOX 3 FIX ME fanboys
all games on x360 look like trash cuz x360 is atrash console without any games
UNCHARTED makes anything on TRASH BOX 3 FIX ME look like wii games not to even mention MGS4
MGS4 will require 10 DVDs on x360....what a shame??
That crappy box doesnt even have a next gen DVD drive or HDMI 1.3 support
Your really loving the OpenZone, huh?
Lol... Thanks for making me smile.
Not to much longer now with this releasing worldwide. I need Old Snake in my life.
well i have wii and ps3.whats ur psn?i dont know my wii number by heart but online for it sucks on ssbb anyway
Str8trashin....Utalkin2me was already taken =(
I saw these over a week ago!!! still cool though, so no problem ;p
wow, this game looks awesome. some f*** details are in there (especially the small robot,wow). the greenish look looks very good.
I need to pre order this game..
something else. this is why i own a ps3.
the green hue makes it look like something that happened in the past, which is weird because it's supposed to be futuristic. Looks cool, though.
spandexxking - You can go both ways with your statement.. I know a lot of people were saying bad stuff about the way Halo looked.. cause it wasn't realistic or something like that.. but, wait a minute.. that's called Art Direction as well.. Phil Harrison PS3 - "PS3 4ever..." Then why did you leave? Moron. You can change your name now... He's no longer at Sony. Jamaicangmr - You can also say that about everyone on this site.. Go look in the 360 area... seriously. THWIP - It is your right to not like a game.. but you shouldn't diss it.. I'll be picking it up, but I just hope the camera is different.. I don't really like that overhead camera angle.. Does anyone know if that changed or can be changed?? I don't agree about the Greenish look.. Isn't he supposed to be in the Desert?? I'm not saying it looks bad but I don't think it matches the environment.. This isn't the rain forest. I prefer the way it looks in the picture that has the girl and those flying people in it..
The Camera has Been Changed and thats jus a Green tint sum spazzy has put over the Pics
The game is supposed to take place over multiple settings. I don't know what you've seen to date and I don't want to spoil anything but one scene seems to take place at what looks like a dam. As far as the camera goes, what was the last MGS you played? There have been a couple of changes through it's life up until the last release in Subsistance. It's come quite a way since the original. It was also said (and I'm not sure how well it's going to work, you "could" play the whole game in FPS mode looking down the barrel of a gun if that's your thing) As far as the greenish hue is concerned, I think that is a filter that's been used on several of the released images. If you view any of the videos, things are different (take a look at the 15 mins of gameplay especially if you haven't seen it... Not sure there's a single green in the whole thing)
Looking rock solid and Triple A console mover
to beat all MGS all over again starts tomorrow for me. 3 months.... 3 months...Join me in this race.
none of these are "new" they can all be found in the trailers
I personally like my games with more colors, but this game is gonna be awesome and this is coming from a 360 fan.
lmao this is one little setting . You will go to 3 other locations and also insine huge bases/labrotories and such. There will be tons of variety. This is MGS4. Snake will probably die.
i think the game looks excellent. In motion it doesn't look that green but whatever its all about the art direction. personally i prefer dark and gritty
but it doesn't disappoint.
looks about right for ps3.
What happened to this game? The sepia tone looks sh1t, and the shaders look blurry and low rez. WTF? I thought this game is supposed to use the Cell? Strange, but now that it is more like SC (the playable MGS), it should at least be functional with usable controls and camera. I look forward to it (when I get a PSturd, n00bs).
look like heap of trash.
The shaders / textures look way better than CARTOON GAYLO3 /GAYERS .
You stupid PEDOPHILE get out of this forum
