isn't Sony getting the Deja Vu mission?
listenkids  +   666d ago
They both have an additional mission, skinned differently with a tacked on story. Neither is breath taking.

BiggCMan  +   666d ago
Yea not gonna lie, it's kinda bullshit really. I mean both Sony and MS are at fault as well for this nonsense. Question is, who is to blame for starting this trend?

You must be the hype man in your group of friends!!
BiggCMan  +   666d ago

Is ground zeroes releasing on pc like the phantom pain ?
Zizi  +   666d ago
No, it's consoles only.

Playstation gets exclusive content: Praise Kojima!

Xbox gets exclusive content: Curse you Kojima!

Only in N4G
Heisenburger  +   666d ago
I didn't see anyone excited back when they revealed the PlayStation exclusive content. So it's not quite like that.
goldwyncq  +   666d ago
You didn't have users calling Kojima "Money Whore" when the exclusive content for Playstation was announced.
FullmetalRoyale  +   666d ago

"You didn't have users calling Kojima "Money Whore" when the exclusive content for Playstation was announced."

Well not that I recall, no. Just a lot of complaining that the announcement was lackluster. Now, here's an exclusive for the "other side" that looks great. Of course some feathers are going to be ruffled.

This site is mostly in favor of PlayStation. It's only logical for this to be the reaction. That's not to say that I find the reaction itself very logical, I do not.

There are plenty of people from every camp here, even the elusive "I just want to play some GOT damn games" camp.

But I suppose that this is just a long-winded way of me acknowledging that you are correct.

I didn't praise Kojima, I was pretty p!ssed off to be honest
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   665d ago
Count it 2 of us. If Kojima's going multiplatform, please, keep the platform exclusive bullcrap to a minimum if at all. We don't need 10 versions of the same game, each with a minor exclusive meaningless part, either make it available for everyone or don't waste time with it when you could be adding something meaningful instead. And this kind of crap only comes back later to bit fans of the franchise in the ass later anyway, it'll obviously be DLC or part of a complete edition later, just to make people buy again.

Looking forward to getting this, MGS is one of my favorite game series!
Tatsuya  +   666d ago
Metal Gear is a PlayStation thing. This exclusive deal by Konami for the Xbone is a disappointing thing for me.
Zizi  +   666d ago
Couldn't agree more.
goldwyncq  +   666d ago
The first MGS was remade for the Gamecube so it is by no means a Playstation exclusive.
ShinMaster  +   665d ago
Keyword: "remade"

Besides, that's not where most of its fanbase is. Only like 0.4 mil people played Twin Snakes on GC as opposed to over 6 Mil on PS1 lol

The only MGS game thats exclusive to a playstation console is MGS4 so its not a playstation thing.

ShinMaster  +   665d ago
It is when its fanbase is 12x larger on PlayStation.

MGS1/2/3/4 on PlayStation = over 4 - 6 Mil
Any MGS game on Xbox or Nintendo = 0.60 or less.

Even though it started out on MSX 2, commodore, NES...so no not a PlayStation thing

The NES version was a butchered port.

You people make me sick. I chose ps4 and mgs is one of my favorite series but every time I read that kind of comment it disgusts me.
OrangePowerz  +   666d ago
I wait until the full game comes out at a normal price. I'm not going to give them 30 bucks for that and 60 bucks later for the rest.

I still believe that Kojima is still one of those creators who can make every single gamer love each of his opus.
pecorre  +   666d ago
Right between Dark Souls 2 and Infamous Second Sons... March is going to be insane for me!
Nicaragua  +   666d ago
Does anyone know if there will be an online multiplayer component for Ground Zeroes or is that something we have to wait til MGS 5 for ?

I only ask because MGO was one of my favourite multiplayer games ever so if this game has an online then im gonna be all over it.
FunkMacNasty  +   666d ago
I hope that Ground Zeroes will still provide endless hours of story and gameplay, like Kojima's other epic MGS entries.. I'm worried that they are calling it a "prologue". The Prologue in a book is usually like a third the size of a regular chapter. I don't want to pop in Ground Zeroes on March 18th and see the credits by March 20th!
CrimsonDragon90  +   666d ago
I'm boycotting Kojima productions games, until we PS fans get the Raiden exclusive mission or a proper exclusive mission. WTF Kojima wake up, you are pissing off a lot of loyal fans.

cyphertech  +   666d ago
Only Konami can somehow convince me not to buy a next gen version of my favorite franchise. Absolutely brilliant PR, konami and kojima.
XiSasukeUchiha  +   666d ago
Boy buying on 360 when it first comes out
curtis92  +   666d ago
I'm furious... releases 3 days before infamous? WHY do publishers do this? No doubt one of those games will suffer due to consumers being forced to decide and then we'll get more "disappointing sales" reports.

Stupid publishers. You had ONE job.
CocoWolfie  +   666d ago
so agree1 although its nice that two of the games im most looking forward too are coming out close! :) just gotta buy my ps4.. and driveclub.. and dark souls 2.. somehow :p
Akuma2K  +   666d ago
I'm getting the PS4 version to play the grozney grad level from MGS3:Snake Eater with updated graphics, talk about pure nostalgia and bringing back memories....the release date can't get here fast enough to play MGS5 Ground Zeros.
ThaBlackBaron  +   666d ago
why is this game coming out so quick?
STEWIE_PLAY_PS4  +   666d ago
Too early good I can't wait this MGSV games but.
I think this might would deplay this again? Since not release deploying GT5, MGS4, GTAV, and other game next fall than reason early?. Do u agree me? If it true.
xxxGEOxxx  +   666d ago
Am I the only one not too happy about MGS V being broken down into 2 parts? Ground Zeros is supposed to be a prologue to the Phantom Pain, yet we are going to be charged twice for two parts of the same game. I dunno man, seems like people are sitting here arguing over who got the better exclusive content when we should be arguing how we're paying twice for two parts of the same game.

But maybe it's just me.
