Kojima Productions, a subsidiary of Konami and developer of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, has issued a statement regarding the numerous requests for the game to be patched with trophy support.
So, basically, the same thing they've already said?
I'm all for it...as long as there are no Metal Gear Online trophies. Not even trophies could get me to go online in that god awful mode again. Bronze (Yes...bronze) Trophy Unlocked - "Wow you must really like MGO!": Spend over 30 minutes downloading and installing the newest update then use 10 minutes to find a match online.
with trophies for cheap price and it will sell like hot cakes. thanks
10 minutes to find a match online!? what game have you been playing? MGO is fun! the only thing that ruins it is the glitchers.stop lag switching people!!!
If you don't like MGO, it doesn't mean other people doesn't like MGO too. There are thousands of players playing MGO right now. And we are enjoying every bit of it. To each his own. Although I admit it is one of the glitchiest online game on the PS3. f'ing glitchers.
maybe when mgs4 subsis.... wat ever comes out but they will come......
just another reason to keep on playing this epic game! but will probably have to delete or back up the saved data and start fresh for the trophies to work.
MGO is an incredible blast. Not sure what game he's been playing.
Jesus Christ could this statement be any less helpful? Is this not the exact same thing they said last time. It simply sounds like they're teeing up to shaft the PS3 owner with some announcement of a new limited edition w/trophies. If they do try and make us buy 'Subsistence' for the trophies then that is very poor service. I have a feeling, knowing Konami as a very 'Japanese' developer, they;'' make the trophies insanely hard and annoying. I hope that's not the case, as I've been relishing the opportunity to go through that super game again. I'm with you there, Blaze. For me, the slow gameplay, awkward controls and lack of teamwork made it a painfully boring experience. Before the resident fanboys retort with 'are we playing same gaem lol' and 'its tactical not like c0d4 nubfest', I didn't find the game particularly suited to tactical teamwork either. It's simply not very well made; from the server issues to the stupid bloody Konami IDs. Of all the people I know who enjoyed the SP and numerous other online shooters (including SOCOM), none of them appreciated MGO.
10 minutes to find a game ?? I feel sorry for you, I never even had that trouble in the beta. But 30 minutes to download the latest update, that's amazingly fast. If I tried to download any update it'd take me F'in hours. I had to leave my internet and PS on overnight 2 days in a row when it was the beta to download it all properly. I hope that any future game will just use sony servers.
I had a feeling i should have waited. i just traded my MGS4 for a Dualshock 3 controller. Hopefully they release a substance version or something. I'll definitely buy it to get the trophies.
This will of course be complete with a few minor new stuff, trophies and some variations. Just like they did with the previous games, right?
Having just gotten my Big Boss Emblem, I have to say that if trophies are ever released, they're going to be hard. Not only that, but it's going to require an insane number of play-throughs. All they really have to do is assign a trophy to each of the ranks at the end of the game and they're pretty much done. I hope they do release trophies, but if they do, I know I'm going to end up spending a ton of more time on that game, so I'm almost hoping they don't Haha.
I've been holding out on replaying it for the trophies and holding out on getting into MGO waiting for them to drop the Konami ID thing. Sort it out man it's been out ages. EDIT: @idleleesiulung Sony wouldn't allow developers to re-release old games charging extra for trophies on the disc only. Including trophies would see the game spike a few thousand more copies so that alone would probably pay for them.
What Blaze929 said makes perfect sense. I don't like MGO and I wouldn't want to have to play it a lot to get a platinum trophy. I don't want my children to hear me swearing so much, and that is what will happen if I am forced to play MGO again.
Blaze What the hell are you rambling on about MGO is very fun and it never took that long to get into a match. Maybe you should play a game before you talk. Guys he is probably just butthurt because he sucks at it and keeps getting cqc'ed before he could kill someone! LOL!
Sorry Blaze but this is a bit funny. Yesterday I was slammed by you cause I said KZ2 is more exciting than HL2, and now you owned yourself trash talking MGO. LOL Btw, I havent played MGO yet. I want to try it out, but I need to finish KZ2 on Elite first. I want to replay MGS4 but with so much new games coming is hard to allocate time for it, trophies could make a second playthrough a reality :D
You keep praising KZ2 and you haven't even finished it on elite???? I got a platinum from it and didn't like it... Just the 18 month-wait and 1600+ posts on killzone.com had to be justified somehow. And about MGO: It sucks. MGS4 is awesome though; best game this gen for me. And you haven't even played it more than once! That number is 8 for me.
It takes up to 30 minutes sometimes to get a game on Gears, and there's glitches galore in both Gears games, so although MGO takes half of the time to get a game, people slam it? Either that point is a fanboyish rant, or some Sony gamers are acting just a little spoiled because GeOW gamers don't complain that much, neither do Sony players talk about such nuances as much. @ Downtown boogey: What is worse, or makes more sense: someone who is savoring a game that they do like, or someone who plays the game long enough to get the trophies on a game that they don't like? :)
That is the ONLY reason I haven't gone back to MGO. It takes me HOURS (YES HOURS!!!) to download the update. No, f*ck that. I'll go play KZ2 instead.
what a tease, all I need to hear is when the trophy patch is ready for DL. Still this is 1 of the greatest games ever created I did not need to get my trophy fix to enjoy. Trophies will just make it solid :D
No matter how much of this "be patient" stuff they throw at us, how much you wanna bet that they DON'T patch the game after making a "statement" after this? Also, how is this even considered a statement on the topic if nothing was said about it at all? All that was said is "we hear you........." Doesn't mean they WILL do it. I hope they do, though. SO many people have been clamoring for this that it's very ill-willed to the fans if they don't come through after more than a year of this question being brought up.
@ downtown boogey You platinum'd a game you didn't like? What in the world made you keep playing it if you didn't like it? I understand beating the game to make your final decision, but getting a platinum for it seems like a waste of your time, time you could have spent enjoying another game. Do trophies mean that much to you? I love Killzone, and I'm nowhere near a platinum. It doesn't help that I'm lousy online, either. Haha.
So they Are going to patch in trophies finally.
No. They just hope that these open ended statements will spur more sales and they can after another year confirm that its too late and MSG Raiden is already out
I hope they do, it will give me an excuse to play through it 4 more times!! Game is just AWESOME, especially the motorcycle chase sequence!!
It's been over one year and they're STILL saying "We hear you, but uhhhhh... yeah we're not saying yes and we're not saying no." If they keep saying that for ONE WHOLE YEAR, then that's a bad sign. Not a good one.
@Sunil Gotta agree with you on that. I bet that is their EXACT game plan if it is not implemented within 2 or 3 months.
They basically just confirmed it.
THIS. Otherwise they could've gone the Resistance 1, Ratchet and Clank Future 1, Soul Calibur 4, Call of Duty 4, etc of just going out and flat out denying any trophy patches. Why go to the trouble of saying "be patient" only to tell us later they are not coming? This confirms it. What Im puzzled is why so much secrecy? This aint no big game reveal. Just go out and say they are coming and omit dates if you want. Hopefully one day I'll fully understand all these PR strategies....
^Why? So some fool hears it then immediately jumps the gun and buys the game waiting for the patch.
Might as well not issue the statement at all.
That basically means that is going to be a GamesCon announcement. Holy CRAP, GamesCon's gonna be better than E3 if THIS hype keeps up.
if not a TGS announcement.
is the installs i would like to have the downloads all stored on my HDD and never have to mess with them again. second make all of the bonus online content available on the PSN
It's nice of them to sort of vaguely half confirm that *maybe* trophies will be coming for all those MGS die-hards out there, but god damn. What the hell took them so long? Is it really that hard to implement some trophies? Seems like the sort of thing they could have a couple of interns do over the weekend.
"What the hell took them so long? Is it really that hard to implement some trophies?" who knows, maybe kojima is planning something to go beyond a traditional trophies patch. maybe we will have in game rewards and unlocks for accomplishing the trophies. i couldn't think of much to unlock for MGS4, but i think it's possible. i think the infamous demo allowed you free Home clothes for downloading the demo, and that new namco game also gives you Home content for ranking up in the game. killzone 2 even had some rewards for completing trophies. if konami do plan a trophy patch, i want a lot of good ones, difficult ones, and preferably some rewards like MGO points or whatever they're called.
You would think that, but with MGS:R and the new Castlevania coming out, I have a sneaking suspicion that Kojima/Konami are too wrapped up in other thigs at the moment. I WISH they would give a straight answer on this, instead of every few months "maybe.....maybe....maybe ...."
this will be the first game to have 2 plat trophies haha 1 for getting all trophys and the other is for walking backwards thu the whole game
chronicles of riddick has two games on the same blu.ray, but 1 plat...
I would play Metal Gear Solid 4 all over again, I've been holding off on getting the big boss emblem thing since I heard rumors about a trophy patch for this game. For such a successful platinum hit game, I wanna get a platinum trophy for it :P And I agree with others here, please no Online Trophies, don't get me wrong I like playing Metal Gear online, but dang it'd be hard, LoL. Edit: Finished reading the article, it's just what Whitefeather above said, they've just confirmed it! YES!
You know (and as a footnote to THC CELL's comment above, too), I could see this game actually HAVING two plats, and for that matter, two sets of trophies, because they DID try to make MGO it's own game from MGS4. That would make adding trophies that much better for the game (and probably why it might've took them longer if they do what I think they probably SHOULD do). Would break apart the two games even further. And it might make it interesting.
If they are implementing Online Trophies for MGS:4, I just hope it isn't too hard, honestly people that lag switch in the game pisses me off... But ya like you said we could see two sets of trophies for this game, one for single player campaign and one for online.
MGO was actually sold as a standalone game in Japan as well.
man if they come to their senses and implement trophies into MGS4, it will feel like a completely different game. not that the game ain't perfect as it is but it would add alot more replay value to the best game so far this console gen. MGS4=definition of EPIC Edit: A disagree? lol f!cking BOTS.
You got a disagree!? Good god those bots are on a rampage.
I am just here to say that I am such a fan of this game that I would replay it about 5 more times if trophies were added.
Sorry but I did not enjoy MGS4. Particularly Act 3 which is supposed to be a jungle but the level design was horribly simplistic compared to Crysis, FarCry/2, Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow and other games. I was actually heavily disappointed. Act 4 was much better, saying that. Also, the combat was decidedly old-school...which is fine if you like that, but it was far too clunky for me.
they allready said it before no?
Is there going to be a trophy to watch all cut scenes? lol!
ya release a MGS4 director's cut edition or something, since Kojima said there are a few things in MGS4 he would like to change. Oh and make sure to get rid of the install heheheh
MGS4 is hands down my favourite game this gen, I absolutely love it and have put loads of hours into my 5 playthroughs. You are right though, the installs in this game are bad! I have a 320gb drive in my PS3, I would gladly donate whatever was needed for a full install. Showing friends different parts of the game is a pain in the ass. I admit tho, when I first got the game, the MGS4 experience was so EPIC I actually enjoyed watching Snake chain smoke. It would be great if a re-release addresses the install between levels.
I haven't bought it yet due to not playing the others BTW Where the f**k is Metal Gear Solid on the PS Store
where have you been? Sure you don't need glasses or something? MGS1 has been on the PS Store for like 1-2 month(s) now....
You gotta love the "We have no statement" statement.It is totally not a complete waste of time.
That's a good way of putting it. Seriously, they need to announce if it's coming or not already so I know whether or not to keep going with my new game. I know I'll have to beat it 2+ times once the patch comes so I'd like to save the energy for that.
makes me want to play MGS4 all over again! give us the trophies dammit!
It will happen eventually, too many fans are clamouring for it but we all know Kojima san is a perfectionist, he won't be rushed to put something out just to please people. I'm sure when they do release a patch there are gonna be some pretty original trophies in there though, i reckon it'll be a tough platinum to achieve!
Count me in spending tons of hours again playing this masterpiece. :)
Rather vague statement, at least there is a possibility and by saying we want to please fans, it looks promising, although im sure they said something like this before.
if the trophies patch only went to MGO and not MGS4. lol that would suck.
Hopefully they do patch it. I am ready to get all of my 40 emblems again! Metal Gear ROCKS!
those emblems are hard as tits. i don't see how you guys can possibly beat the game without setting off an alert.
tits r hard? i dunno bout that one buddy. u must be squezzing sum cow tits or something. but I kno one thing that gets me hard when looking at tits. my... nevermind. Not all tits though :D
The no alerts was pretty hard, but beating it in under 5 hours (including videos, pausing and codecs) with no deaths, no rations and on the Extreme difficulty is what made it insane. Don't get me wrong, no alerts is one of the harder parts about it but the culmination of so many impossibles made it one of if not the hardest thing I've ever done.
Just F-IN say 'YES' we are doing them or 'NO' we are not??? How F-IN hard is that??? It sort of sounds like they are, but why the 'F' do i have to Guess for!!! ;-D + MGS4 + KZ2 + LBP = THE 3 BEST GAMES SO FAR THIS GEN!!! ;-P
at least there was no countdown for a countdown to announce a countdown of a rumor that there might be trophies.
if they don't patch it with trophies... i will still love them. if they do... i will love them even more... q:
Just like you said, Sir Ken_Kutaragi. I think they are probably working on it see if it'll work to implement the trophy to the game and not want to say yes too early and bring the hopes up then it didn't work as they wanted. However, I'd love to see it works. It'll give me more reasons to play MGS4 again.
