NowGamer: Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes might not even last you two hours and the reaction to that news has been an angry one. Why?
Yes it does!
Positively. It's a great length for a demo.
Considering you can speed run through MGS 1-3 with no side quests to offer, no I doesn't matter. These same fools complaining right now have spent full price for lesser games. Quality and length. It's annoying that people complain about $20 for this. And if you are spending more, that's all your fault. Shit, if you're spending ANY money that's STILL your fault. Plus, all the extras such as side missions and collectables, probably a 9 or 10 hour game, more than most $60 games. So yes, act like a 12-year old bullied kid and disagree or argue, but I'm right.
I have 40 reasons why it does.......
You can replay it in many different ways. Im still going to pick it up.
Where do you live? I have a Playstation Underground Jampack I want to sell you for 60 bucks....
Not everyone likes to play the same missions over and over again in order to get "value", it gets repetitive and irritating. No problem with them selling a short game, but £30 is too much. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons was only £12 at it's most expensive, and was available quite a bit cheaper during sales...and it was 3-4 hours. That's about right. I think people are letting them get away with murder just because it's a Metal Gear game. If EA pulled this nonsense with a Dead Space game, people would lose their minds.
To do everything will probably take you 8 hours, if you're not comfortable with money, don't buy it.
And people won't. That doesn't mean that people shouldn't say they don't think it's good value...games companies need to be told when they're under-delivering on value. Silence would just ensure more and more companies break off parts of a game to sell at unreasonable prices.
Smart ppl will because they realize that the story part is 2 hours if you seen the list of achievements then you would know there are other missions just have nothing to do with the story a lot like the vr mission game which a lot of ppl liked so I do not see the problem plus the price range from $20 to $40 ppl act like they are asking flat out for $40 if price is a issue get digital on last gen for $20 that is fair then get TPP on current gen when it come out or wait a year and see if it come with TPP I know ppl going to say but they want the disk on ps4 I do to but if price was such a factor I rather have it digital on my ps3 instead of not getting it at all like a lot of ppl claim they will do
I don't think I would mind if it was that short and wasn't so expensive, but it is. Like I said in a previous article, I'm going to wait for more news on MGS V to see if they include GZ with it at no extra cost or just wait for a massive price drop.
Yeah it does.....don't just ignore it because it's Kojima Did we all pay for Snakes Tanker missions in MGS2.....no we didn't
Again dude, Kojima doesn't decide the price. At least learn how the industry works a bit before pointing fingers at whoever is popular.
He didn't decide the price, but he did decide how long the game would be... I mean, come on. A 2 hour game? Why not just include this with Phantom Pain and have a longer complete game rather than try to cash in on a long demo? It's absurd, and this kind of practice shouldn't be supported.
1) He still probably cut this to sell it separately. Its basicaly what Capcom did with Case Zero in Dead Rising 2 and 2) He's quite high up in Konami he probably gets a say on most things, like the price
Exactly I'm sure kojima choose how much his games are going to cost hell if he has so much control why even work for Konami lol ppl are crazy if they really think Kojima make those types of choices he is a employee of Konami I'm sure he create his own deadlines but to say he control pricing is a bit much
Everyday another website is telling us why something doesn't matter
They most likely get review copies for free, so forget that the paying customer is getting shoddy value because they've lost sight of that by not having to pay for the game.
Yes it does!! Maybe kids are happy cos parent spend cash for game but when you work have family it does!!!
It does just kind of feel like Konami sliced the first level off Phantom Pain, repackaged it, put a litte bow on it and offered it up again. $30 for boxed copy seems like a lot for what they're actually offering. $20 for digital is fair, just about.
When I saw the price for $39.99 I was thinking maybe 5hrs or so, but less than 2? I will wait, I'm sure when the main game comes out Ground Zero will be included.
cmon 40$ to much. He just want a taste of the Money of a damn prologue. If it was 20$ or less i would glady buy it. But i will Watch youtube gameplay 2 hours instead :).
I'm not paying 40 bucks for a 2hr experience
I think people are missing the fact that 2hrs is if you just run through it and only do the necessary things to complete the story. When is the last time any of you have ever played a game like that on your first playthrough?
2 hours of gameplay, 10 hours of cutscenes. Nothing has changed since the previous games.
I won't buy it so i won't complain, you hear me Kojima?. I'll wait for Phantom Pain, be it 2 or 3 years from now. Or wait...are you trolling again this time? i (almost) dared to bet that you're giving Ground Zeroes for free when it's released...
The real problem, like they said, is the pricing. Coincidentally they used the same example I was gonna give. Can you imagine paying $40 for Case Zero? While I'll bet that Ground Zero will be a little higher in quality, I'm positive that it won't provide enough to warrant the ridiculous price tag. Anyone who argues that this game is too long to be considered a "glorified demo", you never played the Phantasy Star universe demo which gave you unlimited playtime and access to a majority of its features for the first thirty levels with the only setback being less loot drops. For fourth dollars, this is a demo. If it were fifteen or maybe even twenty, it'd be a kickass arcade title.
said the brainwashed monkey.
2 Hours for a $30 game on current gen. systems, and $40 on Next Gen. If this becomes the norm then the Video Game industry can burn to the ground, and resurrect like a Phoenix. Ground Zeroes is no more than a Graphical Demo Presentation. Forget this game I know games that'll be worth my $$$.
