Peace Walker's development team as big as MGS4's

Sean Eyestone of Kojima Productions says that the Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker development team is as big as the one that developed Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. (Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, PSP)

I haven't used my PSP since Resistence
But people are telling me that this is looking to be a pretty good year for the PSP so I'm still holding out hope that I'll get some great games to play.

@Cold

Well, you should start it up again and get ready for some PSP gaming this year because PSP has a few notable titles coming out even though you know should have at least turned it on and tried Dissidia because its a badass psp game.

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
Resident Evil Portable
God Eater
Final Fantasy Agito XIII
Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep
Parasite Eve: The 3rd Birthday
Persona 3 PSP

Wow, this game will be huge. Exceptional, as expected from Kojima-sama.
kaveti6616  +   1739d ago
Don't you mean Kojima-san?
ThanatosDMC  +   1739d ago
He's saying that Kojima is either his lord, god, master, or pimp.
hay  +   1739d ago
It's also used when speaking about or to person who is admired. So I did mean exactly what I wrote.
PirateThom  +   1740d ago
When Kojima does something, he doesn't mess around.

I'm starting to wonder why this isn't a PS3 title, they're obviously throwing a lot of weight behind it with it being not just the main MGS4 team but seemingly most of the team.
RememberThe357  +   1740d ago
Maybe Sony thinks they need more help on the PSP
MGS4 set if off for the PS3, after that the games just started pouring in. And maybe Konami thinks that they will get better sales if it is on a hand held in Japan. I'm sure there are a number of factors.
Optical_Matrix  +   1740d ago
This may be going far out but I have a feeling it's to keep the "true" or at least canonical parts of the franchise on PS. I know there were remakes etc for Xbox and gamecube but you get my point. The way Kojima keeps stressing his envolvement in the game, the fact that the team is huge, how it's essentially MGS5....
Can't wait though. The game will be amazing :D
hay  +   1740d ago
Because he wanted that Japanese youth would experience the MGS saga wherever they are. Good move IMO, but it may suffer cause of low sales.
It's day one for me definitely.
Megaton  +   1740d ago
I would have much preferred it on PS3. I probably won't even play it because it's on PSP. I owned a PSP for less than a year before I sold it, Patapon 2 being the only thing I really played often. Portables really do not float my boat.
Whitefox789  +   1739d ago
Kojima has already said why its a PSP title and not on the PS3.

"Really, I don't think much about whether a platform's portable or for the home. In other words, it's not important to me. With the PS3, you've got a whole range of middle- and high-school kids who can't play your game because their parents don't let them play video games at home. Those kids can whine at their parents all day about how the game's anti-war and anti-nukes, but they'll just respond 'Well, you're still killing people with guns, aren't you?' and brush it off. I wanted to go the extra mile for gamers in that sort of situation. That was one of the reasons I chose the PSP."
firelogic  +   1739d ago
My guess is that he did want to make it for PS3 as an exclusive but Konami said no. So Kojima put it on the PSP instead and MGS:Rising is multiplatform with Kojima's involvement in name only.
Agent Smith  +   1740d ago
Not surprising. Kojima said a while back that if this game was on a console, it'd be MGS5.
Sarcasm  +   1740d ago
I wish it was on PS3 as MGS5. I want to play Rising, but I'd rather be playing as a current gen Big Boss instead.
Punch-o  +   1740d ago
METAL GEAR game like this belong on PS3 NOT PSP !
I just can't get into handheld gaming :(

A proper MGS sequel deserves high def and surround sound.. big mistake Kojima

Anyone, and I mean anyone who feels MGS games have good gameplay need to be thwacked in the head with a board and promptly administered electroshock therapy... I, on a whim for amusement and to humor everyone, played, for the very 1st time, MGS 3 sub last night. I've had the game since it came out in the wrapper and last night I finally broke into it...

WOW! What a train wreck. I've never really liked the gameplay in MGS games to begin with. I beat the PSX one and got to the last section on MGS2 but couldn't keep interest in it... 3 was a gift and MGS4 was sold after only 3 hours of playing it on my end.

Why? Because the gameplay is so stiff and so restricting. You automatically hug walls and trees when you walk by them or up to them. It takes2 button presses to lay prone. Hell, I got past the bridge last night on MGS3 and tried to crawl under the 1st little building you're suppose to fo to and couldn't cos everytime I'd either hug the wall or kneel. By the time it was all said and done they'd see me and it'd be a fire fight.

The scenes are long, drawn out and pointless. Why do some of these conversations take place? When I save the game I don't wanna hear about movies this or Godzilla that. I wanna save the game and be done with it.

MGS games are absolute ballz!!! I hate them. I will never play them again and will always scratch my head as to why people like them so much. The stories are lame. The characters are absurd. The dialouge is junk. The gameplay is rubbish. All of it is so below par that it's unfathomable how it's so well received.
Ninji  +   1740d ago
Hmmm...
It sounds like you're the type of gamer who would really love Call of Duty & Madden.
morganfell  +   1740d ago
Exactly Ninji...bubbles.

People do not want to admit that when the MGS story goes over their head, it isn't the game that is lacking. Besides, I hear Ritalin is great for ADD.

"Yea, EXACTLY NINJI!!!! Way cool bro!!! Totally awesome burn"

Except, in your attempt to be passive and dismissive you failed to gather facts... Those facts being, your assumptions are just that. Assumptions. I hate FPS and I haven't played a football game since gameday 98. Now what? D*ck Twist?

Edit to below:

Who the hell's even talking to you? I didn't even read your post... That's how important you are to the fold. Your buddy, the one I was referring to, is the one who mentioned madden. Maybe you should read the post your praising as super duper cool before you make any more. Just a suggestion.

Edit to below: again

Actually, in "FACT" you can gather "FACTS" before you make an assumption... He could have asked me. See, had he done that... And then made the claim all I like are FPS and Sports games, then it'd have been a lie. The way it is he made an uneducated assumption. You simple minded Jaw Jizzer.

Also, why is it when someone doesn't like a certain game, usually a popular one, everyone's answer is always "He has ADD or ADHD?" It's stupid... No. The fact is, the game blows. MGS sucks. Deal with it. I love Splinter Cell games. I love tactical games. Civilization Rev is one of my favorite games this gen. Hell, I play Rome Total war 2 days of the week probably... And I have ADD? Please... You seem to just be desperate for coverage and to support your favorite franchise.

Where did I mention anything about Madden? I have never played a video game sports title in my life outside of bowling in GTA IV.

Slobbering personal attacks are the refuge of the mentally defenseless when they know they have been intellectually stepped on.

And just so you are aware, one cannot gather facts that are assumptions. They are either a fact or an assumption. In your ever so vain attempt to appear high minded you have fallen from the steps of the short bus...while it was moving.

Maybe you need a game limited to standard geometric shapes and primary colors.

I'm sorry to hear that MGS doesn't do it for you. It's personally my favourite series of all time. The story has great depth, the characters are unique, the dialogue is epic and the gameplay is innovate, ground-breaking and just plain fun. It boggles the mind how anyone could not like it.

edit: MGS3 is actually my favourite in the series

It's not because I never gave it a shot or didn't try, man. I've played Every single Metal gear game since the Nes days. Hell, I even got around to playing the original versions on the MSX2 system. I loved the series up until PSX and then something shifted and things just went blah for me on the series...

Last night was the 1st time I tried playing MGS3 as I said... but I've played MGS "to completion" and MGS2 to damn near completion. MGS4 didn't work for me... It was a bit better than those but not much. MGS3 is a train wreck all together. Healing yourself. Fixing yourself. The long sessions of hearing two people talk about movies in between the game... It's just not for me. If the controls were more fluid maybe.

I uderstand
where you are comming from, i have friends that cant stand mgs n question me on why im such a fan about it, but the fact that you dont like it does not mean that the franchise is "ballz!!!". Just as you are entitled to hating it other people are entiteled to loving it and i dont think they should get electroshock therapy for loving it OR hating it either LOL. Personally love every mgs and it hurts my organs when some one throws such a great franchise to hell but to each its own. BTW Civ. revolution FTW :)

What you did by editing your erred remarks is something I wouldn't deign to label it a stealth edit. You are about as quiet and sleek as a bull in a china shop.

You used facts and assumptions as if they were an interchangeable term and they indeed are not. Since my post you have edited out your remarks and now you are back peddling like your head is on fire. Tough. If you want to run with the big dogs you have to learn to piss in the tall grass.

You made a mistake and as you can see by the disagrees everyone knows it. Your comments are wholly unsupported and reek of a lack of simple comprehension needed to enjoy any game above the level of pong.

whens that mgs rising game coming out?
Whitefox789  +   1740d ago
wait till E3
Batzi  +   1739d ago
wait for E3
I think a teaser of the game will be released on the 1st of April. Remember on every April's fool day starting from 2 years ago, Kojima released teasers of the upcoming Metal Gears. I think he will do the same this year and the big unveiling will be at this year's E3, most probably during "Microsoft" press conference, that's one sentence I never thought I'd say.

Does Portable Ops; like don't exist in the francise anymore like Devil May Cry 2 in its Francise?
Whitefox789  +   1740d ago
It's considered a side story. It doesn't really involve the overall plot.
Whitefox789  +   1739d ago
I'm not surprised because Kojima said that the MGS 4 team was working on Peace Walker so I can only expect the team to be as big as MGS 4's
foxxy  +   1739d ago
I
Have no issues with the gameplay i'm use to it and the production is top notch and i have never played a metal gear that didn't touch me if people dont like metal more power to you just take your mouse and click X

MGS4 was a pretty bad movie, it needed lots of editing, I think Heavy Rain will be a better movie. As for this game?, psp = instant fail and no one will buy it.

really
MGS4 10/10 IGN and gamespot not a single 360 exclusive got 10/10 from them.

In other news, Kojima Productions confirms MGS: Rising's development team
is as big as the team that did Big Rigs.

Glad to hear they're working hard on Peace Walker. Hopefully they give Rising the same treatment.
