Kojima mentions that the ZOE HD collection is the first step towards creating a Zone of the Enders game
A new ZOE would be great, help break the monotony of all the other stuff we are wading through.
i want to believe
i'd rather him work on this franchise and let snake/MGS rest.
agree was an accident :( lol, anyway I think Kojima is a mastermind, and I own just about every edition/version of every MGS game. For ZOE, I own both and neither really did it for me like MGS did. I'm okay with with disagrees but I am not trolling, I welcome a ZOE 3 but I would hate to see Kojima abandom MGS for ZOE.
He really does need to give MGS a rest. He's claimed time and time again he doesn't need to make them, yet he turns around and spits out another spin-off while the story just gets more and more convoluted. Take a break from MGS and just make another ZOE already. It's been 7+ years since a ZOE game. I think ZOE fans have waited long enough.
I think what NYC_Gamer meant is giving ZOE fans a new masterpiece while letting Metal Gear Solid franchise rest a little bit more and then make another masterpiece just like Metal Gear Solid 4.
I've always wanted to play the zoe games, now I have my chance, hope it's as good as people say it is.
Too bad the game not gonna sell well and it will ruin the chances of a new title.
Well, make sure you buy the game and spread the news about the ZoE HD remake. You know people outside of the internet right? I am sure one person will be interested. Or go my route and buy people games and then they have no excuse not to. It's expensive, but it gets the job done.
Why so much disagrees, it's the truth, it's not gonna sell millions. But I won't rule out a New ZOE because Sly collection sold poorly but Sly 4 is still happening.
becuz you'er WRONGGGGGG!
Yeah it wouldn't sell millions if they didn't MARKET IT PROPERLY. I remember when both ZOE1 and 2 came out; ZOE1 only sold a lot because it had the MGS2 demo in it -- no one knew what ZOE was and no one cared. ZOE2 was made because ZOE1 sold a lot, yet they didn't even market ZOE2 besides a few ads in various game mags. If they show TV commercials and internet ads of super-fast paced mecha action, it'll be over. Everyone will buy it.
it will topple 1 million in Japan alone and a few hundred thousands in NA and Europe (not to sure of my NA prediction though). overall i think ZOE HD will hit 1.2m-1.5m first month. ZOE is more popular than you think. I know people I had no clue till i found out respectfully played ZOEs
I've never played Boktai and I only played multiplayer in Lunar Knights with my cousin, but I liked playing it... I only really knew about Boktai because of Mega Man Battle Network...
ZOE & ZOE2 HD collection count me!, I in hope this does lead to a 3rd instalment
Although I love ZoE and Konami, I hate it when devs pull this "we'll see how it sells" B.S. SE used this excuse for not making a true Chrono Trigger sequel because according to them, not enough people bought the lame Chrono Trigger DS remake. Namco Bandai routinely use this as a method to keep their games in Japan, citing that western audiences won't buy their Tales of series so they don't localize them. It's annoying, even though it is all about the business. Which can be understood, yet still frustrates the hell out of gamers.
from a business standpoint it's definitely understandable, but i totally agree with you. when it comes to a game you want or a franchise you love, it can be infuriating. i think it's important that people in the industry maintain video games as art over video games as a business. yes, it's the largest entertainment industry in the world right now, but it's a shame to see franchises that used to be great being run into the ground by being annualized and over-saturated. it's also a shame to see franchises that exemplify games as an art form being dropped off because they 'under-sold', regardless of whether or not they actually turned a profit. if it's not a call of duty (in relative terms), publishers just don't seem to care these days.
Completely agree. And if you notice, those games that are art are such amazing and deep experiences that always have you awed. Those are the kinds of games that SHOULD be selling. But in this shooter saturated market, and this sequel after sequel development environment, artful games are left at the wayside. I'm looking forward to El Shaddai mostly due to its artstyle.
win. though i'd rather see a new IP. then a new snatcher. then a new ZOE. i'd like to see MGS get a rest, but let's face it, if he announces an official MGS5 i'll probably lose my sh*t. i've been balls deep in that franchise for 12 years and i'm not about to stop now.
this looks like a photoshop picture
totally. 'next generation espionage action' lol
*drools* ZOE3, oh how i've waited for this. Seriously, Hideo do this. I'll send over my $60 in GOLD!
like. I have mixed feelings on MGS5. I kinda want it but i'd want a great story with it. MGS rising i'm not that fussed about to be honest. It'll be cool but i'll miss Snake. There's no reasonable way that it could be Snake though. They'll need to introduce a new character - but then what is MGS without snake?
I would like to support the re-releases to ensure a sequel but man... I already have both games for my PS2. I bought the GOW re-release and they barely looked any better than the PS2 version. The PS2 version already looked very nice with 480p and 16:9 support. =/ The only way I would buy a re-release is because I never owned it for my PS2 like the Silent Hill series, I only bought the first for the PS1.
ps3 = 1mil copies sold 360 = 50,000 copies sold
i never played zone of enders before :( im open to try new games though never played mgs until ps3 neither ff neither halo untill 360 so bring it on
HD Remake for this fanchise!
