Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes - Exclusive PS4 Content, Release Date & Distribution Details

Metal Gear Solid V is schedule to releases spring 2014 on both the PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game is broken into two different parts, a prequel and the full game. Konami has planned a unique release for the game. The publishing plan breaks the game into two peaces, each of which will release at different times. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is the prequel to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and will release first. (Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

so it is getting a physical release just not for the next gen systems?
crxss  +   800d ago
Won't be seeing physical copies of next gen versions until enough people sign that petition! Konami is tracking it. Get goin people!

From what I gather there are physical next gen versions. Just they are special editions only.
Dagobert  +   800d ago
Japan only.

I dont like how the prologue has to be separate from the full game.
azshorty2003  +   800d ago
Or that is cost $30!

I Love MGS, but I'm not really sure how I feel about this yet. I hope there is more info before it's launch to explain and justify the price and reasoning why its separate.
hay  +   798d ago
30 here, 60 later. 90$ split over two generations with one game? Someone was thinking about money A LOT. And I'm one of those who think Gran Turismo Prologue was a cheap move.
I mean, we had that promised previously with slew of cut content with Half Life 2, Sin, Alan Wake or Heavy Rain for example. This idea has a looong tradition of not delivering.

I don't mind the prologue. This means we can play next gen MGS in a few months compared to having to wait till like Spring 2015 if they released it all together.

Kojima was saying how Phantom Pain is 300 times larger than the world in Ground Zeroes, so that is going to take time, and having GZ in the meantime helps.

Prologue is fine with me- sooner than later. MGS is a big reason I always buy a new console in recent years- it's one of the most epic stories ever created in a video game IMO.
supraking951  +   800d ago
will PS4 get 1080p version and Xbone 720p?

This game doesn't have to meet a launch release deadline. I'd say both Xbone and PS4 will be 1080p, it is Kojima after all.
GenericNameHere  +   800d ago
At the Xbone launch, there was an "exclusive content" on MGSV:GZ. So, Kojima took moneyz from both Sony and Microsoft. Dat balance.

Any other games that had exclusive contents on both consoles? Only other game(s) I can think of are the Soul Calibur series (SCII - Link on GameCube, Heihachi on PS2, Spawn on Xbox / SCIV - Darth Vader on PS3, Yoda on Xbox 360... Well, until they were both made as DLC on both consoles)
MestreRothN4G  +   800d ago
Only digital? Not falling for the scam.

You know what this is? No second hand sales. Yay! In disguise.

I'm not idiot, thanks.

I'm stilling holding out hope that when we first see Snake, we hear Keifer, then Koz asks Snake "what's wrong with your voice?" -- Snake clears his throat-- and its Hayter!

That MGS 1 "flashback" makes zero sense with the game being set in the past. It was fun during MGS4, but it doesn't fit into MGS:GZ.
WeAreLegion  +   799d ago
Of cour$e it make$ $en$e! What are you talking about?
OrangePowerz  +   799d ago
I see what you did there. :)
hay  +   798d ago
I hope he's just probing for real MGS remake with all those references lately.
I wouldn't mind about sense here. We had those brand new Sony Walkmans in '74 in Peacewalker, singing robots, James Bond villains, dinosaurs, talking cats and sh*t.

Replacing the established voice actor only to bring in a famous Hollywood actor, bringing in the ability to regenerate health and see through walls, breaking the game in half so you can release it twice and make us pay the same, platform exclusive content.

Kojima has pulled a Lucas, he shit all over his own creation.
AD705  +   800d ago
I agree as a longtime mgs fanboy this mgs5 crap will suck so much.
DeadMansHand  +   799d ago
Have to agree. I'm a long time MG fan but all this splicing and dicing and digital only is a big turn off. For the first time, I will not buy a MG game day one. I'll just wait until a goty edition that has both games and such on a disc appears.

With a new system and awesome games like infamous, destiny, the division and all the unannounced top tier studio up and commers, its not like we have a drought in games.
AD705  +   800d ago
I like mgs as much as the next guy but mgs5 seems like a joke to me. It's just a pathetic cash in on the name.
Everlastingfate  +   800d ago

Pieces, not peaces. Jesus.

Yeah, I quit reading right there
Everlastingfate  +   800d ago
Is a little professionalism too much to ask for?
MestreRothN4G  +   800d ago
Then they complain about piracy...
d4sholil1  +   799d ago
I think Kojima's reason for not releasing GZ and Phtm Pn together is valid for the fact that PPain is taking longer to complete. I mean I don't mind waiting if both were to release together. Do I like it, not too much because how long will we have to wait for the P.Pain after GZ is released. Kojima did say that there will be plenty of playing to do in GZ. I just hope it is way longer than the prologue in Snake Eater. The other aspect that bugs me is the story and how somethings are not going to fit in the whole timeline from MGSV.
LuNaTicgrrg  +   799d ago
i would like to have a remake of all the games, and then i mean ALL, on xbox 360 and Ps3. the older ones was the best ones,and i would like to play Metal Gear solid 1 again
d4sholil1  +   799d ago
I love the MGS games, I would LOVE a remake of the ps1 MGS. A remake of the nes and mgx games would be awesome too. Ive played mgs2,3,
and 4 way too much to go through a remake of those games.
solidboss07  +   799d ago
It would be worth getting the prologue if it contained some sort of MGO server access. The online portion could then be extended with the second part of the game?
Here's hoping.
Tetsujin  +   799d ago
Or at least a beta to the online.
