The recent news that Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes can be completed in under 2 hours has sparked quite a wide array of reactions. Here is one from the resident MGS fanatic at Gamemoir.
No need for even questioning it.. Yes 2 hours is too short. Especially once you get into the game.. 2 hours will feel like 30 minutes.
2hrs is alright its just the fact you got pay $30-$40 bucks for it that is insane. Konami could just save themselves trouble and make it digital-only and charge $15. That and or they could bundle it with an upcoming game. Pay $60 get Castlevania:LoS2 and MGS:GZ.
2 hours of main story, let's generously say there are additional 4 hours of side ops, makes the game 100% complete in one sitting. There are better options for 40$. But then again, there's the more affordable prev-gen option strongly colliding with next-gen idea of moving forward. I find it retarded that Next gen owners have to pay more for pretty much the same title. Even Square wasn't that greedy with Tomb Raider Definitive. They just priced it the same for the same amount of content, and even that was bad for some.
2 hours is fine, it just depends on if the price is reasonable with the content. What I don't understand is why is this game 20 bucks on last gen systems and 40 on next gen retail systems? Why is there 3 different price points for this game. It should all be $20 bucks and your set. I don't understand the double increase in cost.
Even $20 is too much for 2 hours.
Its too short and too expensive. This is pure exploitation and a very bad practise that would def cus more harm than good to video gaming
Two Hours, too short? Absolutely yes, MGS or not..
Too hours, two short. I think you mean? Unless you've improved. :3 You've come along way since you've been using "It" for "He"
That's why my JTAG will try this.
Wait. It will be on the MGS5's disc.
There's no way in hell the MGS superfans are going to boycott the game, so if you do you're only missing out. If you can't stomach the price tag just wait for a drop.
I'm MGS superfan. Acutally I strongly believed Metal Gear Solid series is just the best industry had to offer. And here I am waiting for PS4 Ground Zeroes to drop to around 15$. It's merely a matter of own reason to do or not to do such thing.
Digital copy should be £7, physical copy £10 across all platforms. People seem to so easily forget that these new engines are fully designed to be scalable, so that each attribute is as simple as moving a slider to increase/decrease detail in each area bar for a few very minor tweaks here & there.
Two hours isn't too short. It has and always will be about quality, IMO. For a game the length of a movie Konami is asking for $40 for a next gen retail copy. That's what I don't get. I can't justify the price tag. I'll be eagerly waiting for a sale.
I see this as only one thing. Greed.
I hope who ever buys the game knows right away before purchasing.
I really don't see this selling well at the selected price points. I also see this being bundled further down the line with the full retail game. I personally think Konami have done the MGS community a massive disservice with this whole debacle!
does the two hours include any side missions and the exclusive content for respective consoles ?
No, not at all, but the way most are reacting you would think everyone is being forced to buy the physical version for next gen and only play the main mission at a predetermined pace in one play style. I am prob going to get it myself but def want to see a bit more before I commit. I play all games slow anyway soaking in the little details and story so assume this will keep me plenty occupied for quite some time.
it's making me laugh too and they might throw in metal gear online aswell but yeah I also like to take my time with metal gear games that's the whole point for me
