1UP: Metal Gear Solid 4 Preview

The Metal Gear series has always offered players the freedom to choose between silent stealth and naked aggression, a dichotomy that truly came into its own with 2001's Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. The game's hero, Raiden, became a sort of walking arsenal -- but most weapons would utterly blow his cover with noise or visibility. Sure, blasting a few Gurlukovich soldiers with a rocket-powered grenade was a hoot, but serious Metal Gear fans prefer to play by the rules... and that means never being spotted, and never killing an enemy if at all possible.

Metal Gear Solid 4 offers a truly epic array of weapons and items to use -- reportedly in the neighborhood of 70 -- but it also offers Snake more ways than ever to slip through the game's massive, war-torn battlefields without anyone ever realizing he was there. Stealth has always been Metal Gear's most unique and influential contribution to gaming, so fans will find encouragement in the impressive possibilities available to Snake. (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3)

Great preview. June 12th baby. Sorry 360 owners.

Don't be sorry...
just tell them to save that money. You're going to want a PS3 for this game and the others coming soon anyway. Last year maybe not but this year is looking huge for PS3.

No need to apologize to anyone. 360 gamers have been enjoying a plethora of AAA games and have many on the horizon.

More so we should be congratulating the PS3 owners for finally having a AAA game to call their own.

I'm still not buying a PS3 nor anyone I know.

There have been plenty of fun games and so many more to come for the PS3. Although there have been many games for the 360, there is only one that stands out (Gears of War). Besides for that there are none that I would call amazing.

Truthfully, there are so many more original/creative/and amazing looking games for the PS3 that I will not think you would say the same if you purchase a PS3 for yourself this year.

Giant Enemy Crab, then list those AAA titles for me.
Come on, list them.
I thought so.

June 12th=Judgment Day.

The only game on the 360 that I consider to be AAA that is exclusive is Dead Rising.. oh yeah Mass Effect, can't forget that one. Everything else is boring to me.

I hope the game scores and sales well
but for all the right reasons. I hope it doesn't hit big with the fans and reviewers because it is a new metal gear game and it is said to be the last in the series.

i don't want it to fall into the halo 3/GTA4 overhyped category. those games had too many flaws that were just ignored by reviewers. i've already purchased MGS4 and hope it's as good as reviews are saying.(i was kind of surprised at how average halo 3 and GTA4 were after all the massive hype.

Watch 1UP give this a B+
Vicophine  +   2255d ago
Do that and I will make it my mission to send them many, many, malicious key-loggers and assorted MALware :D
S O N Y  +   2255d ago
1up will give it a 6-cause its too complex and innovative,and no pink blood or green aliens

Oh don't mind him PirateThom. He's speaking from his ass as usual.
RonDeMuerte  +   2255d ago
And apparently it seems as if the 360 won't ever have another tripple AAA title...........besides what other exclusive tripple AAA titles does the 360 have besides Gears of War????.....and don't you dare mention multiplatform games....or Halo.....I think we can all agree that Halo is just an overhyped piece of sh!t....

what a toss
cmrbe  +   2255d ago
I for one hope that 1up
don't get sucked into the hype or bash this game because its on PS3. I really do hope for the sake of sheep that we have that these guys will be objective with their review.

YAAAAYYY!! After a year of ownership I finally get to purchase a game worth owning on this machine I paid $500 for. PS3 fanboys seriously need to get a grip. This game better be all its cracked up to be or the shiny black crap station will become my new door jam!

1) you dont have a PS3.
2) the PS3 has plenty of games right now. I have been playing it for the last 6 months...non stop.
COD4, AC, GTA4, UT3, Uncharted, Warhawk, Tekken 5DR, Heavenly sword and more.
3) the 360 doesnt have a lot of exclusives to warrant that purchase. 80% of those A titles (not triple A, single A) can be found on the PC.
4) the 360 has become my grill and heater.
