The new “Greatest Hits” packaging for Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is currently hitting retailers everywhere, and the rear of the game case offers much hope for trophies finally being enabled for the PS3 exclusive.
What's that box doing here?
It's just a box of oranges... wait... where'd it go? !
Shoot it goddamit shoot it! CRACK *gets his neck broken*
Probaly got moved indoors, it starts raining.
lol'd best first comment ever.. % wait wut?
WTF! gonna b buyin MGS4 (again) very soon then
*Runs to the alarm* With that said.. I may be forced to rebuy MGS4 after all :D
SCREW KONAMI ID!!! >_< Seriously, MGO would have been so popular if not for the stupid Konami IDs and 1 character limit per PS3. I also want PS Move support and 3D support. :3 Oh well, they should get all that in for the MGS4 Sub version though. -_-
what was THAT noise
PLEASE BE TRUE DAMNIT! Been waiting for MGS4 trophies for 2 years.
I jizzed my pants
BUBBLES FOR EVER1!!! 3/11/10 = international-trophies-for-mgs 4-confirmed-day
Konami! Over 2 years late! I've already completed MGS4 >.<
Sorry guys but no trophy support for MGS4, the Saint's Row 2 box says the same exact thing and it doesn't have trophy support either.
I actually only played it once because I was waiting for the trophies, but after two years I have enjoys 100s of other games. I am suprised this is a G-Hits and not a Directors Cut like everyother MGS game. Well if they patch in Trophies and not force me to buy a special edition, I'll be glad to rebuy it for $10 or less off of Amazon. But knowing how Konami ruined MGO and MGS4 relationship to PSN by making people use there website, who knows if they will release a trophy patch via PSN as opposed to locking it the disc only.
*Aims Mk.23 in first person mode* "Just like old times."
That's what she said
I am remaining skeptical...Konami said numerous times, now years ago, that 'we hear you guys' when asked about trophy support...Hell that update released just a month or so after MGS4 shipped in 2008... But I would definitely be into this if it happens...of all the games that I would actually care about all the trophies, MGS4 would be it...and I just recently popped my PS3 before I backed up my save data...so i wouldn't feel guilty starting the game over from scratch...
I knew it! I knew it! I knew it! I knew it! I held off replaying MGS4 for like a year just in case trophies got patched. One month after I finally replay it this happens! I knew that would happen!
Quit being a baby, it only took 2 and a half years of speculation, until new packaging was released that is probably an error... and they undoubtedly want you to buy the game again for trophies. Then they release a substance edition soon after. See, no need to go multiplatform, when effectively they get 1 platform to buy their game 3 times...
Amen. I will finally be playing this game again. Great great game. I love stealth games and watching the cutscenes in MGS4.
Haha, oh I'm not being a baby. It's just I knew it would happen the second I replayed it. And of course I would play it again, just knew it would happen.
Don't feel bad. I waited and waited to trade this in holding out for the support to come. I finally trade it in not more than a month ago and...LOOK WHAT HAPPENS! @Defective Bot: Then go e-mail THQ about that problem. Maybe it didn't sell enough units to warrant going through with the planned support. Surely, MGS4 has a LOT more than word of mouth going for it and the attention gathered to this detail about the box now for Konami to just ignore it.
no new update, deleted all the game data and backed up my game saves to a flash card, then deleted everything MGS4 related from the hard drive. Reinstalled the game, no new update. I'm gonna say no go on this one. Darn!
i said this like a week ago in the forums on this site. boom!!!! im a madman, genius, stone cold pimp, finger banging, two-bit, meat missile dropping son of a mom!..... i dont know what im talking about anymore but look in the forums, i swear i said it
I've been saying MGS4 will get trophies for 2 yrs now. I just had no proof :(
well irepbtown, i saw it on a case like two weeks ago, thats all im saying, check the forums. the thread or whatever you call it is call "this might be old news but"
Whose footprints are these?!
Ive only rented it but I would like it to have trophies when finish it.
Still have my mgs4. I don't even want trophies for it anymore, like I did in 08. Beside I'm not trying to peel my head off for the BB emblem. There's no way they won't make that a trophy if this is true.
Trying to get the BB emblem AGAIN would be torture. If this is real (and I doubt it is), they better be retroactive.
What was that noise....hm.
Holy shit FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!
Move Support Anyone?
I hope it's a patch. I would never sell my MGS4.
Agreed...I have the the original special addition with the BD documentary still...will never get rid of it, even though its opened... biggest mistake I ever made with this 'hobby' was not holding on to a black border'd, unopened, FFVII a few years ago...I had it for almost 10 years unopened...had NO IDEA that it was currently worth that much (at the time it still seemed sort of common, although not for an unopened box)...I actually won the game from a kid in high school in a game of pool, but already owned it, so just stuck it in my closet figuring i'd eventually need it... and I GAVE IT TO MY COUSIN!!! when I got a PS3 because I still had the game...I gave it to him with my old PS1 and a few games i never played anymore for christmas in 2006...fack I was speechless when I saw the value of it...called him as soon as I saw it to see if he opened it...and of course he did, and lost one of the 3 discs already haha...oh well...
2 years I have been waiting to play through this game again. Many times I have concluded that it's been too long of a wait to see trophies, and yet I live in hope again!
....in that box.... "!"
**Pulls out walkie-talkie.. Hello.. hello.. **static, sparks comes off, shakes walkie talkie. Arrghh.. -End statement
I'd rebuy this in a heartbeat for trophy support. I had already ran through it about 8 or 9 times while spending countless hours on MGO. I am a slave to Kojima. I throw money at anything he touches. :)
WOOHOOO!!! BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY!!!!
I played this game thru once and it has been sitting in my collection ever since. I am stoked about the trophies and hope that it is true. Will gladly go thru this game again ..... was actually thinking about breaking it out and playing it again this week....think I can wait a little longer to see if this is true....... If it is true I wish Ninja Theory would take note and release a trophie patch for Heavenly Sword.....just saying :)
Should be good patching the game with Trophies.
I wouldn't mind playing through the game again for trophies. I usually play each MGS like 3 time through anyway.
I have my doubts... Capcom GREATEST HITS box for Devil May CRy 4 says it have trophy support when its really false. I have hopes Konami patch this...
Snake is old and tired. Let him enjoy his retirement.
Trophies would be sweet...and hopefully the install isn't like 6GB like the original. That was a beast of an install and can't be arsed upgrading from my little 40GB! Edit @below: Still hope the install ain't as big this time round.
the install was around 5 and it's the same exact game just may be with trophies
I'm hoping it is a patch, and not altogether different edition. Unfortunately, Konami is known to make several editions just like Capcom....
They need to stop playing with my emotions.
One of the best PS3 exclusives just got better. I'm going for a 3rd playthrough when it gets patched. I don't think they will make you buy the game again. 50 or so trophies is a good reason to replay a great game.
See it when I believe it. I don't know what to believe.... Now just bring Valkyria Chronicles and my life will be complete.
The funny part is, I'm not rushing to play either VC or MGS4 again. Both ate up far too much of my life to give them another go. I got the Big Boss emblem and all. I'm sure trophies wont be retroactive, and I don't have the time nor patience to ever pull that off again.
I could not agree more, playing MGS4 to get those emblems was one of the most infuriating things I've had to do as a gamer, I don't think my sanity would survive it again
MGS4 always warrants another play through in my book. I am crazy excited for a trophy patch.
now if Sega would only see the light...
I haven't really played an MGS game before, but if MGS4 got Trophies I'd definitely give it a playthrough
Man, stuff like that kills me to read. You wouldn't play it because it's one of the best games of all time, but you'd happily play it because it has "virtual" trophies?
One of the best games of all time? Don't you think that's a bit of an overstatement? I agree with you though, trophies shouldn't stop you from playing this masterpiece.
Yup. Stuff like that is common and sad. Same deal with the online-multiplayer element. Even if some games don't call for it.
He says ONE of the. He didn't said IT'S THE BEST GAME OF ALL TIME (which actually is for me).
SirRunic, No that is not an overstatement. It is one of the best games of all time. Right up there with Kingdom Hearts 2
"one of the best games of all time" That's subjective, and purely opinion. And he probably has too many backlogged games he wants to play that he is equally interested in that actually has trophies. For instance, if I had not previously played any of the two Ratchet and Clank games (ToD & ACiT), I'd go with the one that had the more features (ACiT) over the one without trophies (if my interest in the two games was equal). And perhaps maybe he was just waiting to buy it because he believed it would inevitably get a trophy patch. After all, if you're in no rush to try out a game you only have mild interest in, then a rumor of an incoming trophy patch is enough to continue your patience in waiting to buy the game at a later point in time. I think his comment is being taken slightly out of context. Though if he refuses to play it unless it has trophies, then yeah, that is pretty sad and pathetic.
