Metal gear 4 on ps4? Yes please :D

Forbidden_Darkness1075d ago

I hope so! They could also throw in Ground Zeroes with the rest of the collection and I'd be happy with that. Makes me glad I decided to skip the Legacy collection.

Ninver1075d ago

The inclusion of Ground Zero would be awesome considering i haven't picked it up yet.

Make It Happen!!

bouzebbal1075d ago

MGS collection on PS4 including MGS: Twin Snakes HD please!

PLASTICA-MAN1074d ago (Edited 1074d ago )

I think MGS4 will stay forever a PS3 exclusive (or at least PlayStation exclusive) due to the many elements of the game having playstation related stuff top them: Metal Gear Mark II & III using the Cell processor and the sixaxis controller is the only way to control it, Sunny playing with a PSP , Otacon talking about Bluray on the PS3 and disk swap on the PS1 and many other stuff like that.

One_Eyed_Wizard1074d ago

@Plastica-Man

I guess they'd need to make a few changes to make it work but you're right. It's very doubtful.

RumbleFish1074d ago

MGS 3 Subsinstance 16:9 on Steam please!!! :D

All of that was pretty much just a plug-in to market the PS3 and can easily be cut straight out and nobody would care.

I don't think Kojima/Konami can justify cutting out an entire platform like Xbox One.

If it comes, I will be looking forward to seeing it on Xbox One and PS4, but likely won't be buying it.

NukaCola1074d ago

Salty,

No it's not. MG series has always had easter eggs and console specific integration. It's a part of the charm. Even Twin Snakes has Nintendoisms in it.

BLuTheSecond1074d ago

@NukaCola

That didn't stop them from removing the Ape Escape mini game from MGS 3:Sub in the HD collection. The easter eggs wouldn't stop MGS 4 from showing up on a non sony system. They'll either be removed or if Kojima cares enough, they would scrap the old easter eggs and make new ones for each version.

BISHOP-BRASIL1074d ago

@YouAreSalty

Indeed, I don't think those little easter eggs are any meaningfull hurdle from porting the game all around, but I also think you're missing the bigger picture here.

MGS4 is an old PS3 exclusive, it have a quite unique code for a unique architecture on it's early complicated days, it's not like something on the new fox engine which you can just run elsewhere. So it's a challenge to port it to any x86 platform at all.

However, porting PS3 exclusive code into PS4 is something Sony have done (TLOU, and apparently isn't an easy task even with such a recent game) so they can help out... But PS3 -> XB1, Konami would be on their own.

Also, XB1 install base is not exactly presenting a healthy grow. It's small as expected from a console in it's early days, but it's also not selling well. If anything, it's the one platform they may justify entirelly cutting out, more so than XB360 (which would need some downgrade, but can be done).

So all things considered, if MGS4 is really part of that collection, I can definetelly see MGS4 staying PS exclusive, just not because of some easter eggs.

BISHOP-BRASIL :

Porting code is an extremely easy task to do, especially on a more powerful system. This is no problem at all!

It is only a problem when you port it to a similarly or more restrictive system.

Despite the fangirls arguments, MGS4 would have likely run on Xbox 360 if it was ported with a new engine.

There isn't anything in MGS4 that isn't doable with more computational power and more lax restrictions like an Xbox One.

Port it to PS4, oohhh my, it is sooo f'in similar to Xbox One. Let's do it!

"Also, XB1 install base is not exactly presenting a healthy grow. It's small as expected from a console in it's early days, but it's also not selling well."

That is ridiculous!

The monthly sales gap in major regions are closing in on Xbox One and PS4. The 4-5 million lead is insignificant in the long run when one expects 150-200 million consoles sold. PS3 didn't have a problem garnering support when their sales were lagging behind Xbox 360, by even more.

On top of this, the cost of porting a game was around 10% of actual game development, per platform last generation. This generation it would be even lower with hardware so similar, it is a spitting image of each other.

So that is just another BS reason fangirls will muddle the waters to fit their agenda.

If that was the case, we wouldn't have third party exclusives that sell to a user base of 5-7 million like Sunset Overdrive.

Stop spreading the FUD! It ain't happening.

it's TGS duh, PS4 all the way

Magicite1075d ago

all until now released metal gear games in 1 blu-ray exclusively on PS4, Please!

Aloren1074d ago

What if it's not exclusively on PS4 ?

I'm hoping for a PC version too. After all, Phantom Pain and Ground Zeroes are coming to PC.

One_Eyed_Wizard1074d ago

Unless they compress MGS4, I doubt it would all fit on a single bluray. But all the others I guess it could be done since they did it with the HD/Legacy collection.

Also, it would be nice if they threw in the Acid games and Portable Ops in there. I liked those games but I don't play a lot because, well, handheld.

Str8Chaos741074d ago

I'm with you Aloren, give us a PC version.

lelo2play1075d ago

And so it continues...

Remakes, remasters, collections, etc. There are gamers that buy the same game 3,4,5 times. Some people have way too much money to spend.

RosweeSon1074d ago

Yeah call of duty players with their "new" game every single year, they might as well go down the new super mario bros... This one is called the New new call of duty.

Gatsu1074d ago

People buy them again, because they are the best games ever. And no I'm not talking about CoD etc...MGS is just totally on a different level.

eferreira1074d ago

People have been buying super mario bros for the nes multiple times on their nes, gameboy color, gameboy advance, wii, 3ds and wii u. Let people buy what they want. It's not your money/

scark921074d ago

Some people like playing remasters and remakes...

Baka-akaB1074d ago

Or as shocking as it is for naysayers , some people love the ideas of playing oldies , ON TOP of their new games .

MGS4 yes please O_O ! :D Kojima is god!

breakpad1074d ago (Edited 1074d ago )

it is for 2014 so no remakes in it ...it will be probably for next gen ......i hope he doesnt break the exclusivity of MGS 4 and make it for other platforms...it is the only exclusive third party for PS3 which can brag about

cj1pate1011074d ago

You sir have nothing to brag about considering how terrible mgs4 was. The story simply tried to close to many plots and ultimately made for one hilariously bad story. Some of these include Meryl and Johny to snake walking through the microwave. Yeah vamps not actually a vampire hes just got nano machines. Lets bring snake back to Shadow Mozes for the hell of it! O you wanna play the game? Enjoy waiting for those long load times. Nothing like watching an ugly old man smoke a cig for 7-10 mins. Game was horrible and in no way lived up to the hyper it created.

geddesmond1074d ago

Metal Gear collection. That's Metal gear solid 4 and Metal gear rising. The last collection was announced as the metal gear solid collection. This is only metal gear so my bet is on those 2 games

gapecanpie1074d ago

If they remake every one for PC that would be a god send..... but knowing konami it will be just upscaled to 1080p

madao1074d ago (Edited 1074d ago )

Nope, no games collection.
It's for new line of merchandises.

No need to say please. If MGR sold more in one Summer Sale than it did on the whole span of the 360 (not the PS3) you can be sure that'll be on PC eventually.

And to console fans, when PC gets it, it will hurt no one. If you're a fan of MGS you should be hoping that they make as much money as possible off the franchise.

FlameHawk1075d ago (Edited 1075d ago )

Lol? Can you show me where this was said?
Tell me do you think Konami makes more money for a game sold at $60 than $5? Doesn't matter how many copies were sold it matters for how much they were sold. Since PC gamers like to wait for sales all the time and console games buy games at launch, I'm sure Konami has made more money on 360 than PC. If it sold more on PC they would have announced Ground Zeroes for PC simultaneously with the console version.
