Konami confirms more details about the next Metal Gear game for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Pfffft...f*** off Konami Always Online for this? Urm. Why? Oh and MT's...wonderful.
Always online? No, thanks. I was one of the people that was seriously going to buy the game as well. But no, I wont be supporting always online single player games. Yes, there is mp but there is also sp and I shouldnt have to be online for that. Thats how I feel. So, I will pass based on what they are doing with the game and not some misguided hate of Konami.
This isn't even funny anymore...Konami is so out of their frickin minds they have become laughingstock. Edit: I feel like Konami is being run by North Korea's Supreme Leader of the Free World, or some other equivalent paranoid deuce from Japan.
Lovely... I was already never going to buy a Konami game again, at least this shows I made the right choice.
Screw you Konami
I was considering this game before this confirmation, cancelling my pre order now:(
You shouldn’t have considered it to begin with..... Just remember why Hideo kojima left Konami......
Why did he leave? Its not like the Konami/Kojima partnership had not already worked for a couple of decades...
Not a good one, Konami.
F off Konazis
Yeah, cause always online and microtransactions is the same as setting up concentration camps and bombing civilians.
You guys just gave your self a death sentence .who's gonna buy it ??
Always on one step closer to microtransactions
Hahahahaha, I expected everything for the worst! Now give me Remasters done well by Bluepoint ;)
I wanted to give this game a chance, but both of those are deal breakers for me.
Konami announces all their games come with fresh turds from now on. Newly created turds will be shipped to your home every week to insure the smell never goes away. There's also micro turds for those who wish to 100% complete the game. The business model brought to you by EA - trailblazing the *new* gaming industry.
I was going to say, what did they take a page from the book by EA?! They must be smoking crack!
Microtransactions whoop de can deal wth it. Online only as they previously announced there is zero reason for this to exist. Why developers contiune this always connected practice is beyond me. Why would you give your product an expiry date? Its like telling a consumer their new car will stop working one day even if its perfectly fine condition.
Yeah, I sold Splatoon for Wii U as soon as I bought the Switch because I knew the online would eventually die and the value would tank. Figured I might as well get some money back while I can. Plus with 2 on the way there wasn't really a reason to go back to playing the first. Sad to think of all the games out there that will essentially become paperweights once they have no active online community.
Exactly! It makes no sense. Very poor decision-making going on with Konami. Sucks because I was actually looking forward to this game, but I never buy always-online games, ever.
I will buy it for £15 in 3 months.
I think EA and Konami should do a collaboration since they seem to share so many ideas.
This game is DOA. The only think Konami can do at this point, and still remain relevant in the video game industry, would be to remaster MGS 1, 2, 3, 4 & Peace Walker for current and next gen consoles. Outside of this happening, they're as good as done.
Coming soon, play as your favorite MGS Hero, Solid Snake, for the low, low price of $19.99! But wait, get the Fox Hound bundle for just $119.99, containing all of your favorites! Including Revolver Ocelot, Big Boss, Raiden, and many more!
Like I already asked a few days.. why does it need to always be online if there's a single player campaign? It's not a friggin MMO.
I can't connect my PS4 to the internet so this is a hard pass for me. If it was offline i'd buy it
Lmao. They should have just changed the title to Metal Gear Dead. As always, f**k you Konami.
Fitting title if you think about it, lol
Well, I was on the fence before... but I'm certainly out now.
People actually believed this game looked good but now since this news everyone just 180d
Konami does not know de way. And yet...someone is going to eat this up. I would honestly be very surprised if this game breaks 3M across all platforms.
Pass! I just feel bad for the name "Metal Gear Solid", it just doesn't fit with "always online" and "micro transaction". What the hell happened?
The console industry was so much better Gen 6. They're so shady now.
Always on I can deal with....I accept it from Polyphony; but their DLC is completely free. With microtransactions though? Absolutely not. N to the OPE.
That’s a no for me dawg. - Randy Jackson
Oh my! More reasons to ignore this game
LMAO , at least i know i wont get it. Now i'm keen to see it fail
I'll "try" it on PC and if it's any good, i'll eventually buy it on the PS4. Why "try"? Because online-only and MT are one thing (bad thing, but i knew if from announcement already, i mean, come on, it's new age Konami), but we don't know what they're planning to do with DLCs yet. And i'm not sure how controls work yet, is single player campaign any good or not, is it fun, etc. I have no problems buying the games, but this one is a "dark horse".
Good to know and wont be picking it up!
24/7 internet connection and microtransanctions. If is $60.00 forget it, if is free to play then maybe I will check it out. Sorry, but all games in my opinion that come with microtransanctions/lootboxes should be free to play not $60.00
rofl On top of creating the game nobody asked for, they've somehow made it worse by adding to it two of the most loathed things in gaming.
What looked like a decent game just went to absolute no-buy from me. Thanks for making it easier, Konami!
Always online zombie level game? Mmmmmm even COD didnt went this far. Konami humlating the whole industry and fans, everybody asked for proper MG and non MT games, but they are doing the exact opposite I blame journalism and people if this type of activity become standard in games. I was considering if this feels fun and balanced but MT and always online lobbies game no just no. Goodbye konami.
"Didn't went" is not English. It's "Didn't go".
I know my english isn't that good. Thanks for the lesson anyway.
Hey Konami, why don't you go suck a bag of dicks!
Haha! This game was already going to fail so hard. Now this is more than a final nail, it's the wrapping of chains around the coffin.
Mhm! i'm afraid this will not "survive"
not surprised, survival games have a lot of micro transaction potential, probably why they made this game in the first place.
always online = sucks demo = sucks never buying another konami title priceless
As if there already wasn’t enough reason to not buy this game. It’s like Konami doesn’t want us to buy it at all.
Still no money for you ever again Konami,
Metal Gear Survive.... won't survive with microtrans
Is this really a surprise?
Requiring an Internet connection doesn’t bother me. It’s 2018; I have a stable Internet connection. I don’t much care for micro-transactions, but I manage to enjoy games despite them.
