"Check back here on the PS Blog next Monday, April 14th 2008, as we have a very special surprise in store for you! See you next Monday!"
*falls off chair* ...from the drool.....
LE boxart is so full of win. Regular =/= win
I kind of prefer the regular art - though they're both admittedly cool.
I didn't like the regular edition box art at first, but seeing it now with the proper logos in place (the ESRB rating, the DualShock 3 support logo, etc.), it has grown on me. I know this much, I'll probably be buying both versions because I'm crazy like that.
Unfortunately, my local GameStop is really bad with their shipments, they usually arrive late, but the FYE store that is literally right next to it always has the stuff in when I'm ready to pick it up. So I'm going to pre-order the regular edition at FYE (because the limited is only available at GameStop), and the limited @ GameStop. If they don't have my limited edition in at GameStop when I go to pick it up on the 12th, then I'll pick up the regular version at FYE and then go home & play it, and when GameStop gets my limited edition in, I'll pick that up too so I'll have both. If GameStop does get in my limited edition on time, I'll just pick that up and cancel my pre-order for the game at FYE.
Yep. Very excited for this game!
man i really want that gunmetal PS3. i just might have to go out and buy another PS3 now. i was waiting for an excuse and i just found it. i guess i better start saving.
All the previews have been a large surprise as it is. Not the impressions but rather, the simple fact that we've learned so much. What else could they say that would surprise us without giving away too much of the game?
Let the speculation begin!
sweet. i watched the pre-order DVD from gamestop yesturday....today i rushed out and bought The Essentials Collection to refresh and catch up with the series. gonna break it open after i get down with Condemned 2 :D
I picked that up too, I forgot how amazing the first one was...just the whole intro was cinematic. When you first get out the water, crawling under the pipe, the credits showing during gameplay, seeing Snake's breath, watching the first guard yawn and make noise, the voice acting...I could go on forever about how groundbreaking it was
I work at Gamestop and can't get enough of this DVD. Everything about it blows me away everytime I see it. YOUNG SOLID SNAKE!!!! wtf!!?!?!!? lol cant wait
I wonder how much it is going to cost?
if I didn't already have a 60gb but I think if it doesn't come with anything different other than the gunmetal PS3 it will cost the same. Might suck trying to get your hands on it.
$500 80g DS3 MGS4
I love it... And I am most definitely planning on picking up this gun metal edition and both standard and lim ed. I don't car how much it costs.... It will be mine, oh yes it will be mine.
This epic "game" is going to dwarf all modern achievement in interactive technology.
I hope it really is SPECIAL and not free MGS4 scratch n' sniff stickers or something...like an unannounced firmware feature to come alone with the new PS store :)
what does war smell like? I want to know. lol
"Scratch scratch" "mmmmmm snakes rank cigarette breath" the gun metal ps3 looks absolutely badass!! hmm i wonder what Johnny Sasaki smells like "scratch scratch scratch"...............ee eeeeeew!!!!!
...Boxart. Thats my guess.
my mind is racing right now i have absolutely no clue
Shouldn't of said that... :P Surely we wouldn't get a beta for MGO and a demo for MGS... or would we?
I'm calling it. It would be perfect timing with the new PS Store coming out.
That would be an awesome entry into the new PS Store, and it would be my first download.
Beat you to it! mwuahahaha
A demo would equal a total meltdown for PSN.
If only I believed in one word comments.
Yea, i actually think that is likely just gives people long enough to spread the word and then BAM new store and MGS4 demo. Wouldnt that be so awesome.
to be a party pooper but i'm pretty sure Ryan said no demo. But who knows! It is a suprise! lol Anyways a game like MGS4 doesnt need a demo. It needs to be experienced in all it's glory, all at once, all in my room when i lock myself up for 24 hrs str8! lol
I also will be sealed away......thirty floors below sea level, in a bunker until I finish this game.
I sure as hell would play it if they released one.
Could be an early announcement that the beta will be up on the store the 15th the day the new store goes live.
I just bought a Ds3 and i started playing resistance fall of men but the controller wont rumble, I heard that you need to download a patch but i dont know where do i download it from. Can someone please help me out. Where do i download the patch from anyone knows?
are you connected online? if so then try to play online in the game. also make sure that the vibration function is turned on in the controller settings, and in-game option as well
And a game has a patch, you'll be directed to download it before the game even fully loads.
That Snake's outfit will be even tighter fitting than before. I can't wait to see. :-P
Kojima Inteview? New trailer?
Kojima said NO more trailers. so?
i heard in a preview somewhere, that the camera in the game did something very special, but nobody is allowed to report on it. maybe that?
I really can't imagine what would be so great about the camera that they wouldn't be allowed to talk about it. Maybe you'll be able to record in-game clips and upload them or something.
..or probably another official confirmation about the EXCLUSIVITY for the PS3, for the fifth time, so we can laught at the 360 owners who always tried to starts rumors about a MGS4 version for the xbox?
snake will not die?
Sony please spare the 3fixme!!!
XFlop will be destroyed in 2008. Everyone will KNOW who the king is by the end of 2008 and in 2009 PS3 is going to rip the 360 to pieces. I think the 3fixme will be pulled from shelves in 1-2 years.
They won't release a demo 2 months before release, and I've read somewhere that there are no plans to release MGS4 demo, and that sucks.
As for 'special suprise' my bet is MGS4 bundle official showing or something similar and insignificant like limited edition boxart n stuffs.
It's goign to be something MEGATON to own the Xfloppers hahahahahha poor bots.
pun, in store so that means a demo
you're sexy and smart
there are two of you's? nice pun though
Okay than you baseballkid721 and EZCheez you guys where right it was a in game download. I had to sing on online in the game.
I don't like to sing online. I don't have a good voice.
"very special surprise"... thats sound way bigger than any demo or Limeted edition box to me!!
i think i just had an orgasm reading that.... when this game comes out, im gonna be locked in my room for weeks
^^ me too
that was an awesome blog post. i hope the surprise is really a good surprise and not half baked crap...
A demo would be badass although Konami have denied it many times before. Have to wait and see.
i cant believe I pre-ordered the right box!!!! XDXDXDXDXDXDXDXD
A demo sure would be great, but I doubt it. I just don't want to get my hopes up. :(
Are they going to give a free copy of the game to everyone here at N4G? No. Then paint me uninterested.
boxart has already been confirmed to be this by Brandon Laurino // Konami http://farm4.static.flickr.... so the surprise isnt boxart
mmm i hope its something good.
Perhaps we will see something on PS store considering it will open tuesday.
Mybe a us version trailer of all those japenese trailer?
surprise is box reveal for the gunmetal one or demo here's hoping for demo
my guess....MGS 4 will offer multi-player or Raiden will be a playable character will levels.
Coming to 360. lol---JUST KIDDING hmm but I wonder what it is, most likely has to do with MGO i'm guessing.
if its a demo i will actually crap my pants....on purpose :p
I can smell the Intro of the game finally reveal to us on some High Definition quality just to torn us apart with such a beauty or maybe some part of the intro just to drive us nuts ^__^
