Konami of America has stated that there will be "earth shattering" news regarding the company and several titles they will be releasing. This is coming from the source itself so these are not just rumors
This could be it...
NO, Pro evolution soccer + Zone of enders for ps3
I'd file that under "interesting". Nowhere near earth-shattering. Earth-shattering would be an announcement that MGS4 will be released solely on the new N-Gauge platform. ;)
Because they're 'earth shattering.'
I think I can see the Sony fans sweating.
LOL!! I wish!!. Well everybody, start your predictions. I hope these are good news not bad ones like MGS4 on 360. FANATICS ...
they are making a next-gen silent hill, gyruss, rush'n attack, life force(with 99 lives code), castlevania, double dribble, silent service, blades of steel, top gun, track & field, q-bert, and skate or die. everybody knows this.
Ha Ha :D
That would be way too awesome to be real.
Double Dribble! Track & Field! Blades of Steel! Oh yeah...the good ole days.
...support "jiggle physics." Because we all know that, without jiggle physics, nothing can be called "earth-shattering." ;)
Most likely though it'll concern Silent Hill, Castlevania, or Zone of the Enders. Maybe even some Wii titles.
...but with the sixaxis controller, you'd be able to perform like a hundred different moves at the same time in zone of the enders. That would be a killer title for the ps3. Even if it came out on 360, ZOE3 would be a far greater gaming experience because of the sixaxis controller
I can see a Zone of enders 3, for xbox 360 and ps3 or gradius for ps3, heck it could even be some new Wii titles. thought the Castlevainia seems to be very likely especially with the announcement of the Dracula x on psp this past few days ago, what ever it is, i cant wait feb fifth. interesting stuff. cant wait
I'm definitely looking forward to a new Gradius; bring on number 6! Or a next gen Jackal :)
screw MGS all together, i want Zone of The Enders 3 and a new Silent Hill. Silent Hill+ Xbox 360/PS3 Visuals, Post-Processing Effects? Sick.
If it's MGS4 for 360, the PS3 is officially dead
as we all know...one title...will determine the fate..of ALL! Come on dude, stop being so worried. =P
I have to agree with Mart! MGS is THEE game for the ps3! If this comes to the 360 than why would I want a ps3? The 360 has the better exclusives, games look better, better online, and now we have MGS??? No reason to get a ps3! One game can make a difference. I'm a big Virtual Fighter fan. Loved playing it on my ps2. And I was going to buy a ps3 when VF came out! Now I dont have too! The 360 has everything the ps3 has... plus more! But I would prefer a next gen Silent Hill. Not a MGS fan.
Its only MGS. Don't get soo excited, I'm not.
I wouldn't quite say that.. maybe if they ported Final Fantasy XIII as well.. then PS3 would be useless
Stop being such a jack @ss Mart the PS3 is not going to just roll over and die just because Konami may or may not decide to port MGS4 to the 360, which by the way I could care less about this game as it is not a game I am Interested in. "Shadow Flare - 2 Hours ago 7 - Kojima may not like the lack of rumble... ...but with the sixaxis controller, you'd be able to perform like a hundred different moves at the same time in zone of the enders. That would be a killer title for the ps3. Even if it came out on 360, ZOE3 would be a far greater gaming experience because of the sixaxis controller " I have to agree with you on that one, after all why woudn't they want to release a third Zone of the Enders on the PS3 since such a game on the PS3 would be just so frikin sweet.
is that MGS4 is going to be delayed. I also think that they'll announce a new Gradius and Zone of Enders. Last, I think they're going to announce a brand new series for the 360 and PS3.
Ive been let down too many times by these AMAZING announcements that some companies proclaim. Its just a way to drive traffic to their website. If it is MGS... then I take back what i just said, anything short of that would not be earth shattering
MGS4 cancelled for the ps3 and will be made for the ps2 and the 360!
uhm you do know that all companies think when they make an announcement that its "earth shattering" news for the gaming world....didn't Sega say something like that pertaining "Sonic"? -lol, Whatever I can't remember exactly but you get the point. Also, call me cynical but I don't have alot of faith in Konami announcing MGS4 for the 360....at least not so soon, Kojima just said they have NO PLANS of a 360 release, and most likely it won't be released until Q1 or Q2 of 2008...so why would they just "flip flop" so quickly. 360 is [email protected] and I own one, I've said many times that I love MGS4, but for now its PS3 exclusive...I know it would be great on the 360, but part of me says: "Let PS3 keep it", why? because Sony really needs it right now. Will they fail without it? NO, but it WILL BE a SEVERE SET BACK, (long, long uphill climb to catch M$) trust me...no matter which console you favor if you don't think MGS4 is a HUGE exclusive for Sony....then you are simply delusional....remember that slanted article about "System sellers"?...well he didn't get this one wrong MGS4 is a "system seller"...period. -Its not quite what "Halo" is to Xbox, but its definitely at the top of the list. Personally I predict this will be some good news for both consoles, maybe even the Wii....but nothing "earth shattering" like "MGS4 for the 360"....its still funny to watch Sonyfanboys like ___ squirm.
if konami say that they are doing a version of MGS4 on the xbox360 watch how fast these same Sony fans claim that's its an old series that hasn't been that good since the second one anyway.an that they can do with out!!but if they say its still a Ps3 exclusive you will hear a ringing of praise forever!!
this will turn into another dissapointment
couldn't have said it better myself
that'd be cool
its an announcement that during E3 they will have an even more important announcement. I guess that can't happen with E3 all but gone. These companies need to stop announcing announcements.
If both Silent Hill AND MGS4 both come to 360 ill be in HEAVEN......DROOOOOL........
both will announce a buy out. It would be earth shattering if Sony buys Konami. MGS on Xbox 360 is not earth shattering but it will still be good news.
I doubt Konami would call MGS4 for the 360 "earth shattering", as using that term in that instance would really be a slap to Sony's face. It says "Look how important we are and you lost us, jerks." I'm assuming that the two companies wish to maintain a good relationship. A buyout, however, is genuinely earth shattering. Although if Sony made a bid for Konami you can bet MS would immediately counter the offer. They spent 650 million for Rare, and would certainly be willing to stake that much into Konami, especially since that sort of price might very well be out of the reach of Sony at the moment with the losses they have taken. On the other hand, that just isn't going to happen...and I'm largely sure a buyout would have leaked as at least a rumor by now. I'm voting for a letdown on this one.
Also, Microsoft bought Rare for 350 million not 650. Still too much for what they have come out with. Viva Pinata was thight but that's about it.
if konami was up for sale you could bet your a$$ M$ would buy them not sony, sony doesnt have the money to blow like M$ does.
It'll be a MGS4 release date for the PS3 and announce that a demo of MGS4 will be shipped with a Kpnami game!. That will be the main topic of the day. Then they'll announce a new Silent Hill and Castlevania are in the works. I'd like to hear MGS4 is coming to the X360, because then I won't have to buy a PS3 straight off, but this is not going to happen...YET!!!
Evolution Snowboarding 2 for the Wii!! ;) http://archive.gamespy.com/... (Note: For those of you lucky enough to have skipped Konami's Evolution Snowboarding for the GC, which is most of you, I've included a link to a review of the original. Probably Konami's worst game to-date. )
Ladies and Gentleman...the 360 is officially dead...the rumor is true...MGS will have downloadable pink bunny slippers for snake to wear for the ps3! In other words, expect something stupid... ...only thing that can classify as "earth shattering" is Sony buying Konami or MGS4 on the 360! Anything other than this...will just be regular news.
and most of us are just blowing it out of proportion. I've thought of some crazy ideas myself, but I don't think it will be much more than the revival of a classic franchise and/or the acquiring of a discontinued popular franchise. Maybe a new studio, but I doubt it.

G.I. JOE
on duke going into a coma within the first 5 minutes of the game.
Konami is an anagram, for a chinese word that when read repeatedly seven times, causes a state of shock, before temporary paralysis.
International Track and Field for Wii. MGS4 to the 360 but as a later game is possible just like how the old xbox got MGS2 Substance. Silent Hill 5 to be a 360 exclusive? Maybe, but it ain't earth shattering is it, earth shattering is to do with MGS4 (unless Konami anticipated all this internet discussion so hyped up the words to get us all excited before announcing something banal like a new dance stage game!)
They are games no need to cry at your computer desk. I bet all you people saying oh its MGS4 to the 360 have a bottle of bubly on ice waiting for the news. Anyway i dont care about the news could be anything.
One of the games is Track And Field on the DS. Odd also MGS4 aint even on the website.
since Kojima said he rather would create some new games for it. A new, exclusive game for 360 made by Kojima Productions ( maybe it`s a bit off, since Kojima said all his focus had to be on MGS4 ). Still, my money is on a Silent Hill game for PS3 and 360, Zone of the Enders 3 for PS3 ( with a MGS4 demo included perhaps ), a game for 360, and Castlevania for all consoles. I don`t think all of this will happen though, but maybe i`m right on some ;)Mindblowing press releases have a way of being less of what they`re cracked up to be, as mentioned above me. They can just blow hehe.
with the European ps3 launch on the ps network or maybe a demo disk with all euro ps3's would be nice to see some 360 and wii stuff announced though

hope it is a demo disk with the European launch, just like with the ps2...i hope they announce silent hill and zone of enders soon.
With PS3 being outsold by PS2 & PS3 owners buying more movies than games I can't shake the feeling that Konami might just call time of death for the PS3.
Why don't we all just be quiet for the moment and wait. I want to see what they will be annoucing, maybe its about E3 which is in July. Maybe some new IP's, MGS4 on the 360? Well i can wait until Monday but i have a feeling that this will be crappy news.
there is plenty of other stuff to spend your time on.
Eledees (Elebits) launches in Europe.
They have been purchased by microsoft and will become an in house vista bug fix team!
Since they stated earth shattering news for the games and the company. They will say MGS will have a 9 month (or so) exclusive window on PS3, then will be released on 360. At which time they will develop exclusively for 360.
i hope this annoucement ends mgs4 rumors ones and for all
Hm, even i would be embaressed to purchase Dewy's Adventure and i play games like Harvest Moon.
MY GOODNESS!!! IF IT'S ZOE3 I SWEAR MY HEAD WILL EXPLODE!!! IF ZOE3 IS ANNOUNCED I'M SOOOOO GONNA BUY A PS3 JUST FOR THAT GAME! And for a bunch of other games too, obviously. Yessss! ZOE makes me so damn happy! ^___^
That's it, Xbox 360 wil be getting it's ass handed to it haha, ZOE 3, the Xbox 360 could never handle that game haha! PS3 Rules hahahaha!
What? did they cure cancer? LOL. Hopefully something good for both consoles?..
I really doubt its MGS4 coming to 360. Kojima only recently said that he wanted a 50gb bluray disc for MGS4. How the hell is that game supposed to fit on a dvd? Game cases are supposed to be rectangular but if MGS4 was ever released on the 360, the gamecase would be a cube with the amount of discs in it. I hope the news is about Zone of the Enders 3
not if they made the case taller :P depends which dimensions theychange :P
Hey zeus i see your back, are you gonna have a nice time losing your bubbles ?
also: ENTHUSIA RACING ps3/360 NEW CONTRA psp CONTRA ds SUIKODEN TACTICS ds VANDAL HEARTS ds
It seems that you are now down to 3 bubbles, is there any chance you could fix your caps lock?
I'm figuring they announce some Wii titles. Maybe something for the handheld market. I have almost gotten to the point where I believe in the death of the TRUE exclusive. I'm pretty sure we will see MGS4 on the 360 , eventually, just like PS3 fans will get things from the 360 they don't expect. These companies have to make money after all.
there is no way that metal gear solid 4 will ever come on the 360, it will contradict hideo kojima's words and would make him look like a fool, so i guess there is going to be some more wii titles and a big exclusive for the 360.
Hey Zeus, I admire how fast you got from 5 to 2 bubbles after everyone got updated to 5 bubbles when the new site got online... pfew Konami and a big surprise on monday. There is only one thing that could be big enough to call it big. MGS4 on the 360 for real. If they all did it for PR and it's a dancing game, then it's really lame. I can remember that Rockstar announced to have a big announcement of a new game for the 360, everyone thought another violent game and they brought Table Tennis. People were shocked. Actually, it's a good game and if you see how they got a simple game like that worked out that well a great project. But well, we'll see soon... it's monday overhere in Europe at least already ;)
