MGS4 Demo Hands-on: The System-selling blockbuster PS3 truly needs

GameSpy writes:
"During its first two days, the E for All expo has been a largely muted affair. The show has attracted a number of cosplayers and young console fanboys, but certainly hasn't packed the South Hall of the LA Convention Center on the scale that E3 used to. Nevertheless, it's fair to say that Konami stole the spotlight with its demo of Metal Gear Solid 4. Only the lines for Super Smash Bros. Brawl came close to matching the snaking row of players around Konami's booth, all desperate to be among the first to play MGS4 on American soil. After a quick overview of the game's Dual Shock 3-based controls, gamers were unleashed on the prototype for brief, five-minute sessions. We were among those gamers. Twice, actually."

Another titles as GT5, PES 2008, LittleBigPlanet, Killzone 2, etc... can also be easy considered as blockbusters. The only thing that's still unknow is which one of them will reach the 1st place.

Those games are all great and will sell but MGS4 is beyond a good seller. Its like Halo 3 for 360 and can do miracles for PS3.
It's all about the fanbase and while KZ2, LBP and others have their fans, none of them can match the fanbase of MGS.

Back to the topic, the problems with CQC make me really worried. Hopefully the final game is as good as the rest of MGS games or even better.

Final Fantasy VII alone has more fans than the whole Metal Gear solid series,

it even sold 4 Mil more than MGS 1

fortunately you are both right.
The PS3's lineup offers not only a diversity in it's titles but also titles with a mass following.

@MK_Red I'm not worried at all about the relatively small problems they mentioned. With the number of people they have working on this, the amount of time they have should be more than enough to polish it to perfection.

We all know that this game is going to be on the 360 as well!! So will FF 13,000!!

trust me, you will want to hear it.

the biggest selling games would be between mgs and ff, and gt because that is the highest selling game of all time. i still think ff will sell alittle bit more then this. but mgs is still my favorite game of all time

whats wrong cooke you need bubbles? you hate everything PS3 yet you try and receive bubbles from the very people you hate.

Its not in any ways the only real BIG game on the PS3 (like its the acse of a certain other console), but it IS the breakout PS3 game.

I mean, when it comes out it will really mean the PS3 is here to stay, and thats the first of many awesome games to come out in the future.

With that said...I WANT MGS4! :p

remix4071d ago

good. they said it was because it was one of the first blockbusters for ps2. mgs3 went up against halo2, half life, and grandtheft auto and still sold 4 million plus so this game will be BIG. possible the same as halo.
