i just came all over my screen......

but to speak truthfully, i'd buy both of these games in a heartbeat. Z.O.E is hands down the best space mech fighting game out there.....

as for it only being on ps3, i could care less......not being a fanboy but i really think more people need to experience this game. people need to cut it out with all this "plz make this game exclusive to the ps3 because the last 2 were on ps2 and its only fair!!!".....like it matters anymore. if it came out on both systems, i would buy either one of them but in the end i would go with the ps3 version manly do to already being a familiar to the controls, not because i think it will be superior or look better on one console than the other.....

HD Remake
That would be the first 'PS2' HD remake yet. I didn't think they'd do HD remakes of ANY PS2 games cause they're already wii level. PS2 DID do 480p ya know?

This just makes me think it's more likely that PS2, software only, emulator. One that would only unlock select games like the 360s Xbox1 emulator does.

Seems like a hint at PS2 games on the download store...

They're working on next MGS first...
But why do people always say the next MGS is MGS5?

I think its more likely to be MGS4:Sub/sistance. Especially with the picture of that ninja, it could be an extra mode that allows you to play Raiden's missions that were happening along the same timeline as Snake's.

MGS1:Integral/VR Missions allowed people to play as the Ninja for a couple missions.

MGS2:Substance allowed people to play as Snake for a couple extra missions.

It would make sense for MGS4:Sub/sistence to allow people to play as Raiden.

Ninja Raiden Sigma!!! >:D

ZOE3 FTW!!! >:D

I loved the Versus mode in ZOE2. Imagine ZOE3 Versus online! O_O Imagine ZOE3 4 player splitscreen!

Imagine ZOE3 4 player splitscreen Co-op online! Imagine ZOE3 multiplayer with level progression and unlockable abilities!

Imagine customizable Runners! >:D

ive never playyed a ZOE game, what type a game is it? is it as awesome as MGS story wise
Johnny Cullen  +   2223d ago

You'd be insane to say that ZOE would be better storywise then MGS. But that said, Zone of the Enders is a great series, abit ZOE1 was okay but not great.

Personally imo, it was the success of The Second Runner which has made gamers want ZOE3.

Graphically, ZOE1 was quite good on the graphics front but ZOE2 just beats it, cel-shaded gameplay and anime cutscenes.

Basic gist of it is that it's a Gundam/Armored Core type game, only better... much, much better.

I suggest you get ZOE2, it's very rare to find nowadays but its so much better then ZOE1 and worth every penny.
Bonsai1214  +   2223d ago
hmm, i actually felt that the anime cutscenes were a little painful to watch. but thats because i watch a lot of anime, and the quality of it wasn't really up to par. the "codec" conversations you had also were horrible because the mouth moving like that made me crack up every time.

but god would i by ZOE3 day 1 if they made it. I labored for 2 years to find ZOE2 after i beat it by renting it. Its probably in my top 3 ps2 games. The controls, visuals, sounds, scale (battlecruiser fight, giant battle, WOW!!!!) and mech designs completely blew me away.

Jehuty mk2 was so rigged. i loved the animation for homing missiles and zero shift was the ultimate hack. i'm going to go home and play it.

to get a sense of this game, imagine the Ray vs Rex fight in mgs4, but even smoother and in a suit that's about 100x more agile with a Z axis of movement. its pure bliss.

i would take ZOE2 reworked for the ps3 as a temporary fix. that game pushed the the ps2 to its max and looked better than some first gen 360 and ps3 games.

ZOE 2 was better than ZOE 1,
But the worst thing about it was it was insanely short. I got on day one and finished on day one. That dissappointed me. And for that reason I preferred ZOE 1. But they are both awesome games and the best mech games I have had the pleasure of playing.

ZOE 3 before MGS please
SmokingMonkey  +   2223d ago
please, PS3 only

it will be better that way
DW  +   2223d ago
i would gladly appreciate a remake of ZOE 2 ... that game is way too hard to find! Remade version with original ST in HD .. I'm in there. Didn't the second game end on a cliff hanger anyways ...?

Why not look on Ebay? I mean I saw like 8 copies in the first page of search and all are no more than $35. Hell I check Gamestop and in my zip code (77063) I saw a few copy near my house for $19.99. I say look for the game since it really is not that hard to find.

New ZOE!!!!


The most fun/fast Action Game ever! ZoE2 is more graphical then even some x360 and PS3 games!

Calm down a bit, it's going to be a while.
Kojima says that even though he really wants to do a sequel, he has other more pressing matters at hand.

"But there is a mountain of things that have to take priority over that, and we just haven’t been able to make it a reality yet."

That said, I remember hearing that he was working on two projects. ZOE3 and MGS5 perhaps?
deshon09  +   2223d ago
that sounds relay cool
greyfox235  +   2223d ago
mgs2 SOL
in HD plz,
Azures  +   2223d ago
Kojima saying he knows in his heart he'll make another ZOE is enough for me. It's damn well guaranteed.
The Great Melon  +   2223d ago
Hearing this makes me very happy. I remember renting Zone of the Enders: The Second Runner at Blockbuster because it sounded somewhat interesting. I was amazed at how much fun it was. I still love the level where you get the teleport ability and destroy an army. I might pull the game out this weekend and give it another go. Here's to hoping Kojima will work on the series once he finishes his current project.
UnblessedSoul  +   2223d ago
Cant they make mgs5 and ZOE3 at the same time?
onijutsu  +   2223d ago
Thankyou kojima for saying that now i can sleep easier at night knowing that one day zoe3 will come to fruitition, just keep it exclusive for the ps3 so that it doesn't get gimped.

As for collectors edition ideas put zoe 1 and 2 in it. I would pay about 130AUD for that. Probably more when the hype train actually sets in.

Now all i need is for EA to make a SSX game for the ps360...
For a company that seems to really want money, its pretty hard for me to give them any.

EDIT/PS: this is the best piece of news i have ever got on n4g...
Makes it worth wile after having to sift through all of the garbage that comes through. I wish they would give the feature of a user choice blacklist of websites that would be awesome.

Enigma_2099  +   2222d ago
I've taken a new stance with what I want Kojima to do...
... basically I want him to listen to my request... "Hey, Hideo... what do YOU want to do next? Oh, _________... that sounds great! Go ahead, do it!"
