GearNuke: "Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is the prologue to Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain. It is going to be released on the PS3, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PS4. Despite its short length, it has plenty of replay value and content available."
Rumour is it'll only be two hours long - so it will be interesting to see just how rich the game-world is in terms of replayability. I suspect there will be a crazy amount of DLC drip-feeding into it too.
I'm not convinced we'll see a lot of DLC for Ground Zeroes. Phantom Pain maybe but probably not GZ. Kojima has never been one to add DLC before. Of course, MGS4 was released before the abusive dlc practices and PW was on PSP so maybe he just never had the opportunity.
I don't like the whole idea...
its more of a mgs simulator tech demo. its more than 2hrs.more like around 6-10. most 20$ games are like this
2GB, the same size as the average demo... I'm getting it on PS4 anyway even with all the negativity surrounding this release.
prepare to be blown away by the graphics and gameplay.
Someone on youtube who's uploaded the full game said that it can be completed in 30 minutes. It's weird, going by the youtube videos it seems you can control the camera during some cutscenes.
Obviously you've never played a MGS game before. That control the camera feature is old.
I think you can get DLC bigger then that.....The Last of Us Left behind was 3 - 4GB
Left Behind was 5.3GB actually...
Bloody hell... Honestly how can people defend this game.....i mean demo It's the tanker missions basically from MGS2, why do gamers let devs walk all over us. We used to have so much back then
If you remember back in 00-01, that Metal Gear Solid 2 demo was worth every penny of 59.99, and Konami threw in ZOE free. Ithink this one as well will be worth it alone once you see the graphics alone, I heard they are suberb on all systems
Naughty Dog is a huge game in terms of download size though. Look at them next to Infamous 2. 40 for U3, 15 for Infamous. The demo for TLOU which like 15 minutes was bigger than Ground Zeroes. However GZ on PS3 is going to be compressed a lot more.
Its actually quite easy to defend. People want to play it and dont mind the cost (in whatever form its presented), basic demand principles.
Its like that demo that was packed into Zone of Enders for MGS2. Only this time they figure heck you won't even play the game you buy for this demo disc anyway so we will just sell you the disc alone.
Ok it is kinda small but I'm going to try and give it the benefit of a doubt.. And hope it turns out to be really good.. -But yeah that is kind of small.. .____........___... .____||......||.......|___|| ||.........___||............ ||
Infamous 2 DLC is 3 GB
Someone played it for 9 hours, and got only 30% of everything done. Stop being ignorant.
This is really a demo
It's the equivalent of what the Tanker section was on MGS2, and that was given away for free with ZoE. I'll wait until this is sub £10 on PS4 before even thinking about it. I imagine there will be loads traded in.
The ZoE demo was 1/3 the tanker mission, and was free with a very underrated game. This is worse...
Well, at least they lowered the price.
an hour per gig!
Except it's 2gb, right? Isn't the game supposed to be like 10 hours? I guess you're just bad at math ;p
Wow, that's not very much... I wonder if they ship it on a DVD ^^ They shouldn't waste Blurays for 2GB... LOL
Only the 360 retail will be DVD. The PS3, PS4 and X1 discs will be Blu-ray.
Yup. I just wait for Phantom Pain and the inevitable complete edition.
then the final product will be surprisingly small size..i like it
Super compressed game.. And I say that's good, purely optimized
Lol. It's 2 hours long.
Lol. Only the main mission.
I'll confess: I still really wanna play it... If it truly is only 2 hours, maybe this will be the first time I rent a game from Redbox.
It has more replayability than many 60$ games.
ground zeroes should include some multiplayer functionality like co-op or versus modes.
This is a dumb move from Kojima to force MGS fans to spend 30 box for 2Go demo, this should be included in PP and released as a whole game.
Yea but the PP may not release until late 2015 early 2016 thats why this even exist I understand ppl do not like the size but it clear that they want to get the game out there asap so put out a part of the game I wish it could cost more like $20 but I am glad to get some MGS this early cause I did not want to wait a year or two to play this game.
So this will be the Demo buying gen? Yay!
I think I may just take my pre order off and wait for the phantom pain. I can't justify this no matter how much I love MGS.
I have the game got it yesterday, its 3.9 gigs on the PS4...if any of you have any questions regarding the gameplay I can give you a detailed account of it, PS ...i am not spoiling any of the plot elements in the game for anyone...
If it's anything like Peace Walker, then this game will have a lot of interesting side missons, extending length and replayablity.
The main story is 2 hours but the game itself will take around 6 to fully complete? Thinking platinum.
Sounds like they scrapped the high-quality video (that looks almost in-engine) for...you know...just doing cutscenes in-engine :P
I'm thinking the initial potential delay of Phantom Pain caused this to be. Surely Kojima intended MGS5 to be released within a reasonable window of the PS4's release which did not happen. So he sliced and diced.
Hard decision, I really enjoy MGS titles but it's a little hard to justify Ground Zero price considering it's length. Who am I kidding, I will pick it up when it's released lol..
So game size is now related to length of games? Wow you guys man.
It's like they were okay with the length but the size is just too much.
I'm getting the ps4 version. I can't wait either. Kojima has never disappointed, and MGS is 1 of the greatest series. So I'll gladly support it.
