Officialy MGS4 was planned for a 2007 release, but at the E3 Konami delayed the game to 'early 2008'. Now, at the official TGS website from Konami, MGS4 is again stated for a Winter 2007 release.
its just a typo nothing else am sure unless they have planned a surprise for us which highly doubtfull !!
Something this big isn't a typo. Also be aware that in the Northern Hemisphere Winter of 2007 runs from 22 December 2007 thru 20 March 2008.
i sure hope this is a mistake, because if it is true that means Sony got desperate and demanded that they finish it this year to boost sales around xmas. That sort of pressure could result in a crappy rushed, and unfinished game, bad for everyone.
Look at the original trailer - 2007.
to 1.2.Jeremy Gerard - don't worry man!!!! Kojima is not a pressure sensitive guy!!!! when the game comes out it's because it's finish!!!!
Blu-ray for sale!! You dumb Americans buy it already!!
It's playstation, buy it!!
Please sony, get over yourself. Yeah, breaking news, your plan for world domination backfired. You didn't put gaming first, you janked everyone and put your new tv,movie,and money skam ahead of what gamers care about most, quality gaming.
Thanks for your astounding PR department sony!! Otherwise average people couldn't figure out for themselves that the Cell processor was built for video decoding(even though the ps3 is $100-200 too expensive), with blu-ray. BTW, how is Toshiba's new line of hdtv's fairing with the spectacular Cell processor? Game devs know your bs.
Pleeez buy a ps3, pleeez, pleeez,pleeez...
I see this being probable. After all, latest news said they would have Metal Gear Online be bundled with MGS4, and Metal Gear Online is slated to be released in December for Japan according to the beta. I guess we will find out at TGS. Plus the latest podcast with Kojima Productions and Ryan Payton said there would be a surprise with 8 of the MGS4 demo kiosks at the Sony booth when you complete the demo. I say it's a possible release date posted at the end of the demo being this year.
Nah, I'm guessing a Japan only release in 07 if it happens at all.
PLZ BE TRUE . I cant wait.. really I cant.. PLZ
I would sacrafice 10... no, 20 virgins to see this happen!!!
LOL where do you come up with this stuff
Interesting it's good if it's true but I'm not so sure :P
the dude did say he wanted the PS3 to have a bigger install base b4 its release...
maybe he thinks it will happen with the cheaper PS3?
I could care less because when this game comes out im going to be a very happy gamer.....If its Dec of Feb i dont care...both are good with me....
I"m allll game for them releasing this year, as long as it doesn't effect the quality of it. I don't mine waiting if its worth it.With ps3 finally coming out with good games on a regular basis, and ps2 still kicking with the jrpg goodness, I already got a lot of games to play on my plate already!!
I remember one of SONY guys ( treton or harrison.. I dont know which ) said they will boost ps3 sells with games like MGS4 in christmas(he was sure)... but Im sure it was before E3...
u know Kojima, I dont trust his release dates on trailers.. he allways want to make a joke.. :P
hope to be true.. MGS4 will be HUGE killer app in Xmas...
anyway I dont have enough money for buying all games ..
yeah, mgs4 would be THE killer-app for ps3 this x-mas.
mgs4 >>>> halo3. imho.
I'm getin mgs4 the day it comes out, but how in depth is mgs online, is it a rushed feature or is it huge.
I'm geting killzone 2 and mgs4 in early 08 followed by gta4.
Metal Gear Online AKA MGO will be a full fledged Team vs Team (Red vs Blue) Team tactical deathmatch there might be more modes but thats the only mode's video i have seen.
Maybe a demo, but the full game??? I doubt it. It would be a nice gift under the tree though would'nt it.
bad news for the '08 lineup, and Killzone. I'm sure KZ2 could have leaned on this as a Q1 release to help their dev time along. Hopefully we don't see any other games rushed as a result.
The Fall lineup is strong enough anyway IMO. Plenty of good sports games, Folklore, HS, Uncharted, Ratchet, CoD4, UT3, Haze, etc. it all just looks good. The more the merrier, but in all honesty, I think there's room for this game to wait. Japan only release maybe, b/c I can't imagine Haze and the other shooters to put a big dent there, but anywhere else...MARCH.
*Please contact us for details about releases of the games in other countries.
Hopefully this is true. Maybe the game is already finished and they're just waiting for the install base to grow. We can only hope.
I think that this is the game that is gonna make the install base to grow
I have to admit i might even drop some cash on a ps3 if this game turns out to be really good, it looks like it anyway. I really want little big planet too. There's no reason both consoles can't get some love.
From the way it looks, MGS seems to be pretty far in development so it may be possible. But when they do say winter, that could also mean Jan. Feb, and some of march as well.
A lot of rumors spreading from Famitsu. I think this is more of a mistake, sorta like the Call of Duty 4 and Rock band exclusive to PS3 in Japan. Just probably paperwork is wrong.
Winter = December through March
I can understand how someone could be confused about March 2008 being part of winter 2007.
Synce = F*cking idiot
Winter 2007 means the winter season this year. If they said "winter 2008" would you assume that meant this January or next?
It was announced for March 2008 before and this hasn't changed. (That actually means Holiday 2008, guys. Let's be real. They don't release AAA games in March. If you're lucky, it'll be August 2008.)
i think your time machine is broken
march 2008 doesnt count for 2007
If they introduce a $400 ps3 and MGS4 this holiday ALONG with Uncharted, then it gives Sony a serious competitive edge.
Nothing so far will move consoles like MGS4. People will throw their money at stores to play it.
People were lining up in line for days to get a PS3 at launch day at 600 bucks and no games (at least according to 360 fanboys). The PS3 was selling ok before the price drop. The price drop made the PS3 selling more and more and yet with no games (again that's what 360 fanboys think). Can you imargin how good the PS3 will sell at the price of 400 bucks with all the games (from solid to great, even though the 360 fanboys still don't admit it) that are out right now?
This is one of the biggest tittle for the PS3 so PLEASE DON'T RUSH AND TAKE TIME. I rather wait for a couple months then play an incomplete game early. They need to polish it as much as they can. Fix some glitch (cuz I'm sure the game will have some glitches), online play (nothing more annoying than laggy online play)...
its the last one Kojima is directing dude...rest assured...it won't be rushed...he hasn't screwed up yet (aside from the critics that can't follow the story...I will admit though that MGS2 was pretty f'n strange)...
either way i can't wait...day 1 purchase for me no matter when it comes out...I do agree though that I would be happy to wait until March for this...Its doubtful that we will see KZ2 this fiscal...which sucks too...but last winter absolutely sucked for releases, for all systems...if MGS 4 comes out in the middle of march with the online game bundled...thats probably all I need until a year from now...
I had this all planned out, and now I have to add in another game to my list for 2007. That's roughly 7 games in 3 months.
Kojima san please!
If this is true...why would the Wii even SELL in Japan???
People will continue buying the Wii for a lot of reasons (family fun and I think they just want to experience something different) but there is no doubt in my mind that by releasing MGS4 will help the PS3 sell improving tremendously.
Because MGS4 is just one game and it won't appeal to everyone?
RATCHET & CLANK
FF V XIII
looks like my university a gonna take a hit
THE PS3 HAS NO GAMES = will not work anymore
COD$ ;) cool lapsus
As much as I want to play MGS4 right now. I hope the game does not come out this year. This way MGS4 will be a better game. Plus Kojima and his team will get more power out of the PS3. So in doing this the people working on this game can take even more from the PS3 and put it into the game. But even if it does come out this year I have no doubt that MGS4 is going to be one wicked sweet game. So I can't wait to get my hand on this game so I can play it.
PLEASE god let this be true!
Hey, anyone remember that trailer that ended with something like:
...then 2006 changes into 2008 and then again 2008 changes to 2007, yes 2007!
Maybe Kojima is teasing us. Like in that trailer.
PS I don't remember exactly the end of that trailer, what I wrote up there is the best I could remember.
Oh, and please please include japanese voices in PAL version!
Itachi - im rite with you there, ive got my a levels and theres no way i can concentrate!
im a MGS uber fan aswell :( god this could well be the greatest xmas ever
If the game is complete then it's complete. There is no reason to delay it especially considering the Japanese market will be saturated by end's year. MGS4 being released during the winter of 07 would be perfect.
It'd be interesting to see how much hardware Sony could move especially with this pending price cut. Also note that they've always said they intend to ship 11million units by Q1 2008. With MGS4 and a cheaper PS3 they'll hit that target.
Maybe this was planned? But this is all speculation right now.
Xmas release for MGS4; March release for KZ2. Talk about pumping the kcuf out of the end of their fiscal year! Here's hoping.
how did i lose a bubble?!
no, what would be funnier if MGS4 comes out 9/24/07. ONE DAY BEFORE HALO 3 lol
umm... ps4 at $400.... MGs4 this year.... two big reasons to buy ps3 this year....now if only bu-ray had that momentum it had all year long, then i'd jump ship.
until then its Wii60 for me.
399.99 PS3 with Metal Gear in the box free! Now thats! a Halo killer. Too bad it will never happen:(
We got less than 24 hours...Sony is going to own this TGS...the xbox 360 is dead in japan...so Sony will roll over the xbox 360 corpse...
All microsoft got is Halo 3........what they got in 2008?
If sony can get out a $400 PS3 this christmas...they will own....
I can not see 120 million PS3 sold by 2011
I'm guessing you don't often read games lists right? 360 has quite a lot coming out in '08, you just haven't looked. Or if you have, you've been wearing your fanboy glasses. This (if it's true) is a good thing for the PS3, in fact, it's possibly the greatest thing to happen in it's life thus far. Why spoil that by attacking a console that has nothing to do with this news? Seriously, it's just very, very sad.
Thou, I will buy my ps3 starter pack next month, but I got to admit, there are some really nice games coming out on 360... no not halo 3, personally I played the 1st I liked it, but I think 2nd and 3rd are overhyped from the 1st... anyway, I really would want to play Bioshock and not to mention Mass Effect, which I think is GOTY in the rpg department!
you guys never know, maybe they'll announce it at TGS all along that it's coming out 2007. that'll be sony's comeback if it's true. plus if they introduce a $400 PS3, then it's all over. The PS3 will sell millions with the $400 PS3 and MGS4. And if I were sony, i'd bundle that MGS4 with the 80gb PS3 and sell it for $549 or something and it'll sell like hot naked woman on a platter.
Thats what the PS3 needs. You guys dont have that many good games right now. With MGS4 out on PS3, and Halo 3 on the 360. Now thats competition.
If MGS is released right before Christmas...OMFG PS3 wins, cause Killzone 2 and Little Big planet are right after that for Spring..
It's about time PS3 gets one good game, but don't expect too much from it. Just keep the hope up, but be ready for disappointments.
Saying this only because we all know what happened with LAIR and HS.
If this fails there is no hope.
Good luck girls!
Another blind fanboy who thinks Halo 3 will be all and end all. Not likley.
Oh and what was wrong with HS - its an awesome game!
Lair failed... Heavenly Sword is one of the best games I've ever played. Please, don't bash games if you don't have any arguments. The only argument you (And some reviewers) have against Heavenly Sword is that it's "too short".
It's also "limited" in your field of play, it's more like mortal combat w/only cut scenes to take you to the next area of play, also "NO ONLINE MULTIPLYER", none.
HS would be great if it were free roaming.
that would pwn the holidays, kick arse
Well, so far, the news out of TGS is the Dual Shock 3 (in 2008 for NA), and Home being delayed 'till 2008 as well. I'm pretty down about being Home-less 'till next year, but MGS released in 2007 would be a nice surprise. I'm not counting on it though.
At the rate that games keep being pushed back, let's consider ourselves lucky if we see MGS by this time next year. But, if R&C, UT3 and Uncharted stick to the release schedule, that'll definitely keep me happy 'till next year. (especially UT3)
Sorry f'in cry baby's, you won't see anything great on your Pwi'assed 3 until next year and even them, Mehh, not so much.
It must really suck to be a sony fan.
Oh well, I'm off to play BIOSHOCK:)
The "death of the PS3", coming soon to your favorite game headquarters.
