im from the UK and just a gamer i have no idea what NDA means? explain please thanks mate

sonarus3429d ago

@ jamie NDA = non disclosure agreement. Basically contract that binds them from releasing specific details or info until some certain conditions are met or a date is passed e.t.c

sonarus3429d ago

for every lame score there is a 10 around the corner:D

FreeMonk3429d ago

When will reviewers learn that there is no such things as a game that is 100% perfect???

Because that is what 10/10 is saying it is, that the game is flawless, and I'm guessing that even though that I've never played MGS4, that is it not flawless.

There has to be one little thing that is wrong with MGS4 that deducts from a 100% score, that the 10/10 is perceving!

BulletToothtony3429d ago

and if gta4 and halo3 got them, then why doesn't mgs4 deserve it???

ScentlessApprentice73429d ago

MGS4 should accomplish the same feat...if only the inherent biases towards the PS3 weren't so prevalent in a certain portion of the gaming community today.

CRIMS0N_W0LF3429d ago

if you ever played Kojima's games you know they are perfect.

No glitches no frame rate issues no bugs no nothing.

MGO BETA was more polished then all the games released this gen

FreeMonk3429d ago

I'm not saying that GTA4 or Halo 3 are perfect either! That are not!

What I am saying is that reviews have to start reviewing the games for what they are and not for the hype that is behind which has happened with Halo 3 and GTA4.

Trust me, I am a massive MGS fan, and still believe that the original PS1 MGS is the one of my top 3 games ever...but it's not perfect!

There is nothing known as a perfect game/movie/ even person on this planet, because there is nothing that is perfect!

ATLRoAcH3429d ago (Edited 3429d ago )

When will everyone realize that a perfect review score isn't suppose to state that the game is perfect. No game is perfect and there never will be a perfect game. A 10 out of 10 means its a must buy not a perfect game. Thats what review scores are meant to be, something that tells you the worth of a game and not just a rating on the technical quality.

bluegoblin3429d ago

In that case the 10 shouldnt even exist...
10 refers to a masterful game not a perfect game and if theres is a masterful gama out there it is most definitely MGS4...

lovedaddy3429d ago

10 / 10 doesn't have to mean perfect, it could mean its just exactly what you want out of a game.

Few would probably argue that FF7 wasn't a 10 / 10 game when it was released, but by todays standards the gfx are dated etc Just because it isn't perfect doesn't mean its not as good as gaming gets at this moment in time.

Think of it this way... if I was to describe my car, its a Toyota Yaris 1.4D. I'd give it 10/10 - why, because its cheap to run, getting 62mpg, falls in the lowest company car tax band, small enough to park in busy UK streets, yet big enough with 5 doors for bags and 4 passengers. Does it mean it could beat a ferrari in a 0-60? Course not, but for the purpose for which I purchased it, its perfect.

MikeGdaGod3429d ago (Edited 3429d ago )

what it means now is that its one of the best games you can get. and for alot of people, one of the best games you'll ever play.

thats all i need to know

FreeMonk3429d ago

But a 10/10 does means perfect it means it is a 10 out of 10, you can't get bigger than a 10 if it's rated out of 10.

The reviews could of rated it a 9.7 out of 10, but they've rated it a 10/10 meaning it's perfect, which I'm sure it isn't.

juuken3429d ago didn't get a 10 because it's so perfect that God himself made it. A 10 means that it's a must-buy and you would have to be out of your MIND to miss this game. I know people who have never played a MGS game who are getting this one. It's too hard not to pick this one up.

Panthers3429d ago

Perfect is impossible. Games cant be perfect because everyone is different and certain people dont like certain things. The point of a 10/10 review is that the game is amazing and groundbreaking. It does not need to be perfect.

Timesplitter143429d ago

It's all in relative terms. If they gave GTA4 a 10, it's unacceptable for them to give MGS4 any lower score

The Wood3429d ago (Edited 3429d ago )

kidding, no thing to say its just everybody was telling ya what 10/10 actually meant;)

10/10 means one of the best games you can spend your money on at the present time. In ten years time it might rate at a 7 because of advances in whatever therefore it could never be perfect in the firstplace.

theKiller3429d ago

10/10 doesnt mean perfect game these days with the exception of


thePatriot3429d ago

and for every lame score there are 3 perfect right behind it

callahan093429d ago

"When will reviewers learn that there is no such things as a game that is 100% perfect???"

Look, a 10 doesn't mean it's perfect. OK?

If you say nobody ever gives a 10 because nothing is ever perfect, then you're just setting the bar of perfection at a lower digit. Then a 9 becomes the new 10. Just like in Spinal Tap, "Well this amp goes to 11..." yeah sure, but 11 on your amp is really just 100%, just like 10 on somebody else's amp is 100%. The highest review score should never be interpreted as perfection.

supahbad3428d ago

if anything i think that giving mgs4 a perfect score so soon after the whole gta4 thing means that it really is as good as it gets, that it really is the best game up to date imo

LeSouteneur3428d ago

Sure, I'm gonna get this game no matter what, but 10s are like eye candy to me. <3_<3

did we expect different from Playstation: the official magazine???

if it gets all 1s or 10s it doesnt matter to me, im getting it regardless

sonarus3429d ago

this isn't PTOM though this looks like OPM US

pharmd3429d ago

dammit, thats what the description says tho.....**confused**

sonarus3429d ago (Edited 3429d ago )

in fact i am pretty sure this is a duplicate story

ATLRoAcH3429d ago

Its a duplicate also but judging by the amount of comments it looks like a lot of people missed it. Its weird, a story will be posted and get like 50 degrees and then when a duplicate of the same story gets posted it gets 300 plus degrees.

MGS4 has got 10/10 from MANYYYYY websites

The reviews are on hold because of NDA. I think IGN USA also gave it 10

the embargo for US lifts in a day or two

But very sure it will be getting 10 from many websites
