I want PSN support.

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. -_-

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.

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 i wouldn't feel guilty starting the game over from scratch...

slugboss  +   1922d ago
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...
Bnet343  +   1922d ago
Amen. I will finally be playing this game again. Great great game. I love stealth games and watching the cutscenes in MGS4.
ReservoirDog316  +   1922d ago
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.
athlon770  +   1922d ago
Well I just dropped in my copy of MGS4
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.

Kleptic  +   1922d ago
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...

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.

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.

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.

vickers500  +   1922d ago
"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.

bomb that shit from space, I haven't even been able to try MGO once

they can't put "multiplayer" on the box unless they patch it to remove konami ID because you WILL NOT be able to play at this point unless you made your ID last year
saint_john_paul_ii  +   1922d ago
i stopped playing MGO after 3 weeks because of that BS Konami ID, that ruined a great multiplayer game. I would give it another shot if they got rid of that stupid Konami ID.

Imagine just playing your PSN friends, inviting them straight from the XMB and playing in a party in this game, it would of been a blast.

heres hoping they make an MGO 2 or at least update MGO by getting rid of that bastardly Konami ID.

Agreed the IDs suck...
...and the game is actually really good. But matchmaking at low levels is enough to crush any desire to play this game.

I tried to create a game without level cap (big mistake) ended up with a woman character running about killing me with only a knife and sneaking up behind me choking me to death...she never killed me just would stab me choke me and run away.

Needless to say that was my last day playing that game online lol it was embarrassing.

Vortex3D  +   1922d ago
Why do having trophies make a game better? Do we need to be rewarded with "doggy biscuits" so that we are more willing to play the game and complete more difficult tasks?

I played Uncharted 1 before the trophy patch, but never care about replaying the game again after the trophy patch. Having the trophy now doesn't make the game sweeter.

If MGS4 does get patched with trophy, we can imagine many gamers will rebuy the game just for the trophies.

nothing's wrong with having added trophy support, some people like myself see it as added bonus for a game, while primarily I could care less about trophies it is a nice thing to have, there's just something about seeing that platinum trophy pop up that is very satisfying.
shadow2797  +   1922d ago
I rented Uncharted 1 when it came out. When they patched it for trophies, (one of the first games to get them), I went out and bought it. It was my first platinum.

While I enjoyed it the first time, I didn't appreciate how great it was until after spending all the extra hours getting the trophies.

While it's not exactly the same for MGS4, there are probably a lot of things you can do in the game that I don't know about. Trophies could illuminate such things. Trophies add value to a game in a similar way to online play. They add replay-ability.
solidt12  +   1922d ago
Its a incentive to play the game again and personally I am excited to find out what trophy will be available and what you have to do to get them. Im a MGS nut and will still comeback to play this game even after the next gen systems come out like I still played MGS2 & 3 before 4 came out.
