Do we believe MGS Rising on the PS3 will be the "better" version?…Even over the PC?

The other day GameFa reported by way of CVG that Shigenobu Matsuyama, one of two directors to play MGS: Rising, that Shigenobu actually said that the PS3 version of MGS: Rising is better than the other two versions! OTHER TWO VERSIONS!! as far as I

If its got move support of course its going to be the best version, and its probably lead platform so the pc will be a port.

BF3 will lead on PC, so get over it.

SMOK3xFFx2564d ago

The PC version needs Razer Hydra support then, it's only fair.

LunaticBrandon2564d ago

Even if its not official Hydra can be added. The PS3 version will not be better unless they purposely mess the PC version up.

AAACE52564d ago

Even though it's Kojima productions making it, I have to go with what has occured in the past. Multiplat games usually have issues when it comes to Ps3!

If Kojima productions can figure out a way to get around that and make all 3 games good, then who cares about which version is best!

MaxXAttaxX2564d ago (Edited 2564d ago )

I'm sure they're not just referring to the graphics or super high resolutions.

MintBerryCrunch2564d ago

why does everything have to deal with graphics...what they meant was that the PS3 will have more content since the MGS games have been on Playstation since more story lines, different historical facts, in game scenes i presume that deal with past games...

evrfighter2564d ago

This games comin to pc? Who would have thought...


pixelsword2563d ago

Why is it that when a site like Gametrailers who has been caught putting out biased information that they are instantly believed, but when a developer states a fact that goes against what you believe, it's instantly wrong?

ProjectVulcan2563d ago (Edited 2563d ago )

If PS3 gets a bunch load more content than the other versions......maybe.

If not then no. The translation seemed to point to PS3's hardware as giving that version the edge- something which obviously a decent PC would have no trouble beating soundly. Which throws into question the original comment really and speculation of additional content. Problem is, its just from an offhand comment and as we all know subtlety can get lost in translation.

PC should get a few extra jobbies, probably at least 3D if PS3 gets move as is likely. Razer support would be interesting.

MGS2 was a little dated when it came to PC, but i was impressed with it when i played it in 1080p all those years ago, it blew the console versions into the weeds as you would expect as they were in SD. Hopefully rising will be a decent port.

LOL, better because of Move support?

That team built their engine around the PS3 so they are building the game off that, but don't believe those slippery words of 'PS3 has the power we need', if they were building it on PC they'd have a lot more power, we all know that.

elmaton982564d ago

Maybe so, but the mgs series has always been better on playstation because it's where the series started.

cereal_killa2564d ago (Edited 2564d ago )

elmaton98 I believe MGS started on Nintendo

@nolifeking thank you I ment to say the Metal Gear series started somewhere else I know MGS started on the original Playstation

nolifeking2564d ago (Edited 2564d ago )


No, it started on the msx. Plus, MGS did start on the PS1.

I'm blown away by this to be honest! But i bet you all already know about it lol.

so that means Portal 2 is better on pc! yay! motion control with extra levels made for the controller!!
it even has two joy sticks!
& the game is $44 on pc yay! again..

MGSR will probably suck anyawy..

MaxXAttaxX2564d ago

How does that mean anything?

MysticStrummer2564d ago

Did you post an answer to the wrong article...? You seem confused about the topic.

jack_burt0n2564d ago

When has a franchise like MGS been important to pc gamers, there is no way i would buy this game on pc.

I am happy with dawn of war 2, duke, some battlefield and the better version of crysis 2.

This just sounds like mentally disturbed xbox fans are becoming pc gamers LOL.

Do you even game on pc? Dont see you talking about steam etc

The game revolves around sword swipes literally if you dont think that is a good fit for move you probably havent tried it.

Darkfocus2564d ago

I'm a metal gear fan...I own everyone of them and I would buy it on PC just for the higher res,AA, and framerate alone...besides I'd rather play with a Novint Falcon than a move controller...

Mr Tretton2564d ago

No I don't game on PC (modern games anyway), that doesn't mean I have to look at life blindly like the PS3 is my religion that I must meaninglessly support. Truth is my religion.

I own Move.

Death24942564d ago

how many people actually believed this title was coming to the pc. I highly doubt a pc version is in the works given that Konami doesn't have it on it's website.

CVG will do anything to discredit anyone who paints ps3 in a positive light. They were first one to claim that Killzone3 had only 5hrs of SP campaign. I've been gaming for awhile and I've have yet to see the Metal Gear Solid franchise on the PC without an emulator.

Mr Tretton2564d ago (Edited 2564d ago )

It's been widely known for a long time that there will be a PC version.

MGS1 and 2 were released on PC, those weren't emulators.

@Biggest, google 'Metal Gear Solid Rising PC'

Biggest2564d ago

THANK YOU! It took this long for someone to mention this fact. You can't pre-order the PC version. . . Because there is no PC version. I was wondering the same thing in the first thread about this issue. Some of the usual suspects are even starting down the "It's gonna suck anyway" path after being happy as pie when it was first announced. The game is not on the PC. Naturally, the people that already made a PS3 MGS will make another to be at least just as good. The original is unmatched by the 360. The new version will probably explain why.

Death24942564d ago

Sorry bro, but just because you can google something doesn't make it true. You can goole "Halo ps3" but that doesn't mean that Halo is on the ps3. You also just posted mock ups of fan made cover art. It's not hard to take the cover art of the original MGS and place common PC logos that you find on PC games cover art. Anyone with GIMP or Photoshop can do this no problem. I'm pretty sure that every search you find with " MGS Pc" is probably is in some forum.

morganfell2564d ago

Agreed. Most likely the 3rd version is not PC but rather 3DS or NGP.

Watching the blade cutting videos makes me think this would benefit greatly from Move support. I wish this was a PS3 exclusive.

Who cares? As long as all versions of the game are great I don't care if pc version looks better, Pc will always have better graphics but I have most of my friends on ps3 so I get all my games on ps3 and I don't have a gaming pc that can play the newer games.

Folezicle2564d ago

If the gameplay is better suited for controllers, then yeh.. Otherwise Sony would have had to have cut some deal. Simple the horsepower of some computers will always top consoles

LunaticBrandon2564d ago

How hard is it to plug a controller into a PC?

Folezicle2564d ago

Touche... Well in that case I'd assume that Sony would of had to have gotten involved for it to top the PC performance and/or graphics wise.

radphil2564d ago (Edited 2564d ago )

How many people that game on PC have a gamepad on hand? Regardless of the fact that gamepads are cheap, how many actually go out and get them over kb&m on most PC games? The only other ones are those that own either a wired 360 controller or a PS3 controller, and even then how many of those users at that point decide to get PC versions of most games?

It doesn't always relate to graphics in terms of overall quality.
Yes PC gaming has very strong points over console, but lets get serious here. If a dev FOCUSES on a SPECIFIC platform, it's going to perform better than the others.

Theonetheonly2564d ago (Edited 2564d ago )


I have no wired controllers just ps3 controllers
and i use them just fine to game on my pc.

when it seems to work better than a kb or mouse
or when i want to play laying down.
either way if a game is available for more than one system i would ABSOLUTELY NO QUESTIONS choose to get the pc version it uses all of the pixels on my monitor. and it plays smoothly with no slowdowns.

the only games i have for ps3 is gt5 heavy rain and kz2. the best of the best the system has to offer.

radphil2564d ago (Edited 2564d ago )


The point i'm getting across is that there's people out there that focus on console gaming, that haven't touched PC gaming, and vice-versa. Too many people just think that because they don't apply to the situation that everyone else doesn't either.

Plus it's not always true of the PC version of games being better than console. I can think of a few capcom games that I was disappointed with in terms of their performance for example. Chaos Legion was one.

clarkdef2563d ago

Yeah it's pretty annoyihng plugging my Ps3 controller into a PC and stuffing around with Motioninjoy, that doesn't actually seem to work for some reason.

Everything PC is bloody annoying. I just sold my good HW and downgraded to some simple parts that can still browse, but are very quiet while doing it.

PC can go stuff it now, I'm sticking to consoles.

ProjectVulcan2563d ago (Edited 2563d ago )

360 controller is fairly common on PC now. Who says that a controller is required for the game anyway? Who says that a controller is going to be the best way to control this game either? Why would a controller instantly be the automatic best choice for this game?

I like to have the choice. If PC gives the choice between controller options and keyboard, mice whatever then it certainly wouldn't be anything to do with control methods, as Pc would like it often does have the best of all worlds. Personal preference may be one or the other but if you have both then everyone is happy. Previous MGS games on PC have had pad support. So its all cool.

Its usually true the PC versions win technically. As the consoles are so old i doubt there are many worries over performance. Chaos legion for example came only a few years after PS2 was out, and PC gamers expected to run it in resolutions massively outstripping the SD PS2 era of the time. So the performance gap between the platforms had not widened quite as much and the demands of PC relative to console was far higher. Most demanded at least 1024 x 768 from a game that pushed a not very old console @ 640 x 480.

The reasons that Ps3 might be the best version are more likely to just be personal ones, like plug and play. Technically i doubt hugely any console version can be the best after all these years since their launch now.

Instinct_Gamer2563d ago

If PC's are so great then why not just abandon consoles altogether?

You all need to understand not everyone thinks and feels the same. I for one have never liked gaming on PC's, it just never felt right. Maybe the graphics are better, so people say, but for me it about gameplay, accessibility, and convenience.

PC's have to be updated and age rather quickly. They are also, in my experience, less stable over all and frustrating to use. A console turns on quickly and you are gaming in pretty much less than a minute, PC's take minutes just to boot up, some worse than others.
Then maybe your PC decides it gonna not do what you say, or take 4 minutes just to open a program.

I mean you never had to wait 4 minutes for Windows to open up internet explorer? That shit is frustrating. I can imagine how long it must take for games to boot up...

Computersaysno2563d ago (Edited 2563d ago )

Preference is fine Instinct Gamer. I have no problem with people saying they prefer console because they simply feel like it, or because its easier to setup, because i don't think there is any argument there.

However please do not pull down PC if you don't really have all the facts. It seems like you have not used a PC to game for a long time, or even used a PC at all for many years. Times have moved on a fair bit, its clearly not like console but its been streamlined a lot in the past ten years thanks to clients like steam and easier to use, slicker, more stable operating systems and compliant hardware.

I will also vehemently dispute the idea that to play games on a computer you have to upgrade it so regularly, its a fallacy and a lie. Once your gaming computer is faster than a console then it'll stay faster than the console until a new generation hits. Being able to by choice makes upgrading a plus point and an advantage, not a disadvantage.

Your final conclusion is that you can only imagine how long games take to boot while claiming that programmes can take ages to open. Not that you actually KNOW how long games take to boot, only imagine.

Well having had a great deal of personal experience i can tell you that windows is so very stable these days and i have never, ever had to wait minutes to open a browser, nor more than a few seconds for a game to launch inside the operating system. If you did deal with computers a little more often these days, you too would come up with these same conclusions, i am sure.
