The 3DS Tribe take a look at the new trailer for Metal Gear Solid 3D which appears to show the game get a visual downgrade from what we've previously seen at E3 2010.
It still looks good if you ask me.
Compared to the PS2 version definitely although it's sadly not as nice as when we first seen it on 3DS.
this is site so incredibly negative in all of their articles, look at them lol! I mean yeah criticism is fine but when your site is about the N3DS it's quite strange to have such a lack of enthusiasm... Unbiased, yeah, depressing, no thanks xD
Gone are the days MGS being known as exclusive. Xbox 360 has Metal Gear Solid too. Hideo even said for future games it will be multiplatform. MGS5 definately will be on Xbox 360 aswell now.
Metal Gear was never an exclusive franchise.
Agree. Since MGS2 appeared on Xbox and MGS1 appeared on GC and numerous other spin offs all over the place. But it was known to be the leading game for Sony PlayStation and the number 1 franchise which Sony fan boys love. Including me. Even though I would want MGS5 exclusive like MGS4..but this new direction MGS i guess is good for both parties :D
The only thing exclusive are the first party games. Those will always remain exclusive. You never know... maybe Gears of War Collection will get a release for the PS4 some time in the future. Metal Gear Solid never was an exlcusive besides 4. And if it gets release right now for the X360 it wouldnt matter at all. Its like Splinter Cell Conviction getting released in the PS3. It wouldnt be a decisive factor in sales or anything else.
What does this have to do with the article? Who cares what platform Metal Gear Solid releases on?
the screen is very small and will hide alot of what you may think looks soft or watered out.
It would have gotten an upgrade on the NGP
Even though you're trolling I suppose you're right haha.
God we have 3DS fanboys already
Unfortunately the PSP2/Sony Vita edition looks to be the same as the PS3/360 HD reissue version - so the same visuals as PS2, in high res. Still, it's great to see this classic playable on more consoles.
It Would Have Got A Massive Upgrade On NGP. 3DS Is Outdated
What does it matter? If you want it on the go, there you go. In 3D even. If you want a graphical upgrade, then get the HD collection.
Nah, if you want the full package get the next iteration on the vita ;). Cross platforming plus HD upgrade? no chance for a watered down version lol- @waseem...really?
If by 'full package' you mean complete speculation, I'd agree. Though NGP's resolution is not 720p, it will still be lower resolution and thus lower detail than the HD collection. It's one thing to port without disparity, it's another to render at a higher resolution. I'd take higher res any day. That's exactly the problem with 3DS, it's lower resolution than a standard television and therefore can't display the same detail as the PS2. Chances are the polygon count and textures haven't changed at all.
You need to do some research, resolution does not mean better visuals...
Actually if you want it on the go, you could get it on the NGP as well, as well as the other MGS games, SH2 and 3, and the ZOE series. Just sayin'.
Sad,but true- Ps2 version better-Visuals.
is it in 3D no? then how is it better :S...
Neither is the "3DS". The only game that has any type of 3D that you can see on the 3ds is street fighter and even that is hardly 3d.
Yeah it sucks, I loved the updated look so much :c way to tease us, Kojima.
I think it looks pretty good, and looking at some pics of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (I vary rarely played MGS). It looks to be about the same, if not a little bit better than the PS2 version to me. Of course this is just a some what updated port of an old game, that really doesn't show the true power of the system.
I think 3DS is underpowered for it price. I rather have better graphics than the 3D.
You CAN actually have both, see Capcom.
@Danteh Have you actually read the article, not really that negative is it? And I've already said it looks great. In all honesty the title is there to differentiate as we seem to be the only ones taking note of the graphical downgrade not because we're being negative towards 3DS. If you have a problem with the site so much then don't go on it, we'd rather not have visitors like that anyway.
That stinks i thought it would be on par with the PS2 version at least.
if it was downgraded dosen't mean it isn't better
It is on par with the PS2 version - in terms of raw assets in it at least. The 3DS screenshots from the dev kits are at 800 x 480 - a higher resolution than the PS2 original, but 3DS will be rendering the game at 400 x 240 or 800 x 240 in 3D mode, so the visuals and textureswill look crisper/less blurry on it. Sort of like how Wii dev kits screens from Nintendo for Metroid Other M were at HD resolutions. The article mentions how the game has been visually downgraded from the 2010 edition shown last year - that is, that version used Metal Gear Solid 4-quality character models and fancy new shaders, self shadowing and normal mapping. That stuff has been removed now to something that's near identical to the PS2 original.
Visual downgrade? Imo he looks wayyyyyy better than he did before, he looked like he did in peace walker, a crusty middle aged man. Here he looks youthful and the best look was him in MGS3.
I think there's a bit of confusion about - It's a visual downgrade in technical terms from what was shown last year. That is character models aren't as detailed as the PS3 models used from 2010 and the fancy new shader effects are gone. Of course, last year's footage was a mere demo without any "game" elements in it (only a rotatable camera) for 3DS to compute, so it was bound to look close to the PS2 original instead now.
