Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is now playable from start to finish, and on track for a near simultaneous Q2 release in all major territories.
SNAKE for President in 2008!!!!!!!!!!!.......all Xbroke360 fans bow to the GLORY that is MGS4 ..............."The JOEY has Spoken"
VOTE for Snake?
And that is why this game is going to get hammered in 'reviews' from the usual Xbot sites like EGM/1Up. MGS4 is going to getting lots of 8/10s and maybe even some 7s: "Didn't live up to the hype" etc... Konami really should float a false MGS4 on 360 quote just before reviewers get the game so it can get honest reviews and not Xbot sour grapes and tantrums over the game not coming to their platform.
Told you fanflops that the game wasn't going to get delayed. And it's probably been playable from start to finish for about a month already anyway.
I give you the system seller. The game that will move Sony ahead of MS. This is it. The start of their ending begins! PS3 in '08!!!
The XTARDS keep removing our bubbles since you dont add any. anyone who talks favourably looses his bubbles abruptly. However it is vice versa for the XTARDS PLEASE do give bubbles among yourselves I am down to 2 BTW That Round BOT/Bloodmask and gang removed almost all my bubbles
@ceruleansky. There are certain games you cannot give bad reviews for fear of loss of credibility. If mgs4 gets 10's and 9.8's as it should and then 1up tosses an 8.5... they lose their credibility instantly. At this stage mgs4 is pretty much a confirmed epic all they need is excellent marketting
"People PLEASE do give bubbles among yourselves The XTARDS keep removing our bubbles since you dont add any." I very rarely try to take someone's bubbles away. They have to be REALLY annoying for me to do that. I prefer to out-debate them if I disagree with them, and try to defeat them with logic. It's much more satisfying. To anyone reading this, I urge you to NOT take away someone's bubbles because you simply disagree. If you disagree with a post, then reply with a better one. Only take away bubbles if the person is being a real prick. To take away bubbles because someone says Xbox or PS3 is better is lame and petty.
Wowz i love snake. I have had my playstasian now and watched video and snake does good job killing people with the ball grab. Also i like the definition on snakes ass, very lifelike. I tried one snake move when i was in greece, and the people laughed at me when i grabbed the statues balls but i thought they would think i was part of the statue like snake! I need snake suit!. I think if they add sexy little girls with pretty colored hair but not wearing much clothes but make sure they had on sexy clothes with thong hang out yea! Then this game definately will be 10/10 triple A.
True or False ? Agree and Disagree
As the saying goes.. "Never say never"
Only on PS3.
I think 360 will get it but it will have zero impact because it will be more than a year after the PS3 release before they get it. We're getting Mass Effect and Bioshock anyway.
But skyline, you said "never" 2 times already
how will it have MGS4? There are many problems with that. For example: MGS4 will take well more than 4.8GB of data (which is the maximum capacity of the 360). MGS4's frame rate would be lower due to the small processing power. MGS4 was BUILT for the PS3, so it would definitely play better on it. MGS4 was confirmed PS3 only. Why would they change their minds? and so much more . . .
Never say never when it comes to $$$$. But the xbox 360 has the Splinter Cell series. The stealth gameplay is more straight-forward and realistic than MGS. I'm a Sony fanboy and I would choose SC over MGS any day....although I'd still end up buying MGS as it's still a great series.
you stupid little blind bat the 360 uses DVD9's not DVD5's
MGS4 will not come to the Xbox 360, or until the exclusivity contract expires. Anyway you are restarted, before you post try using google.
Restarted? lol Oh the irony!
This is so good news. They just need to sort out the bugs if they can find any :)
i think they are looking for bugs at the mo. Good to check before releasing the game.
I'm gonna tranq em
Yeah that's pretty much what i said.
That's why the game was delayed the first time out. Truth be told, I should be enjoying this game right now and serving you fools in MGS online but I'm not because they wanted to fix bugs. They want to make the game perfect. Kojima is a genius. He got the extra time and he was sorry to ask for it. The game is done and just being touched up here and there. I don't know why Sony plays it close like this, but they own the best in house studios, have Insomniac making gems like Ratchet and Resistance, and Square is going to drop the RPG beast that is Final Fantasy. MS, you tried. You honestly did. You gave it a good run but the console game aint for everyone.
That can truly be looked upon as Next gen!! Can't wait
People should at least see what this game is gonna offer, and more marketing = more sales
Black screen...words come up "One of many reasons to own a PS3" music starts: "Are you readdddddyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy y!!!!" Footage plays over music. Shows both single player mode and the all-new Metal Gear Solid online. After 20 seconds, the screen fades to black. words come up: "Exclusive to PS3. Metal Gear Solid 4" Console war over.
Opera like Music starts. Shows footage of the original Metal Gear. Words state: "Everything has a beginning..." Shows footage of Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 Then words state: "and an ending..." Fades into the fight between Vamp and Raiden Shows the entire fight. Fades out: "Metal Gear Solid 4. Only on PS3"
i'm guessing they are gonna go as far as putting it in select movie theatres as a preview before some of the biggest movies of the summer. like what epic and MS did 2 months before gears was to release... best beleave Sony and Kojima will do this considering sony is also funding the the MGS movie as well.. espect something of a high calibur for this game and KZ2 as well. the only thing else Sony needs to do is bundle this in the states with the 40gig and then market it as such and thats when you see the justifications of the PS3 really harness... This is a juggarnaut that cant be stopped. all 3 territories all withing the same week. thats fantasic, easily 1 million in each territory in the first 30 minutes... especially if they ship in the a very large quantity. Q2... Snake day is near;y upon us... get ready to mark you callenders, because thats the very same day we'll see people like POG, zhuk and The Mart walk out of there local eletronic stores with a face of great remorse because they soiled their hand with touching a PS3 and they are gonna hate it but love it ^^
Calm down. Just a joke. Maybe. = }
Just cause dont have this game on your sh!tty little xbox 3fixme and u never will have u douschebag PS3 for life its the best console ever!! play beyond!! o wait...im not a fanboy! take all that back your joke made me laugh lol
i've got Hour of Victory damnit!
@GROWN FOLKS TALK am i right in thinking that the joke was referring to the amount of lengthy cutscenes the mgs series is know for?
& with that, I bid my last bubble adieu.
this will be good, and an "emergence day" marketing campaign seems like a great idea because everyone is still kinda in the dark about the game
and it's good to see Kojima Productions planning a HUGE marketing campaign for the game...they are planning a Gears of War-esque HUGE marketing strategy...wow...I'm excited already...I'm sure fellow PS3 N4G's are already excited too...1 million in a day! Let's go! It can be done!
It deserves it. No MGS game has had a big marketing campaign and if there's a game that deserves a big push, it's this one.
I dont care what site, or mags score this game... If it's half as good as MGS1, this will score a 10 in my book. You should play the game for yourself instead of letting game sites and mag scores influence your gaming.
I don't know why people take game critics words as gospel. How many movies have you seen where you didn't agree with the critics reviews. No matter how good a game is, somebody will hate it. No matter how crappy a game is, somebody will like it. Personal preference. (Shankle) I take it you really trust your friends. That being said, do you like everything they do? Reviews aren't worthless, but nor should they be used as a judgement of YOU liking something. As i've said before, millions like GTA, yet I can't stand it. Whether you look at 1 review or 100, it still won't affect your feelings when you actually play it.
Well that's why sensible people like to look at many reviews, or one from a source they really trust. That way they get a good spread of opinions or one that they know is similar to their own. No one takes it as gospel, just a helpful way to see where their money and time might best be spent. If reviews were worthless, why would they be so popular and successful?
Hell. Tne critics bashed Equilibrium and that movie was pure greatness.
Not saying it would hurt, but people are already aware of the game. It's not a secret. I'd also say there are probably just as many that want to find things out as they play, as there are that want to know things ahead of time. Just releasing a specific date will be sufficient. I don't see it having a problem selling. I have to figure that the majority of people who will buy it will do so even without a single commercial. (For Lifendz) Those that loved it on the PS2 are the hardcores. They already know it's on the PS3. Those that don't probably haven't moved up to the PS3 yet. When they do, they'll get it as well.
But I dont know why
we hardcores are going to buy it. No question. But the people out there that loved Metal Gear on PS2 need to know that; A) the game is out on PS3 and B) it's exclusive to PS3. Heck, some 360 owners are going to have to get the system now to enjoy the game. Expect the game to sell in the 6-7 million range. I predict a million plus in the U.S. alone the first week of launch.
No chance. The install base isn't big enough. You think that half of the people who own PS3s will get this? Even the little kids who just wanted ratchet and clank and the online freaks who don't want to play a lengthy singleplayer game? Even the people who only got a PS3 to play bluray movies? Then bear in mind the other top class games coming out in 2008 and the fact that most gamers only get a couple of games a YEAR. Selling a million will be the landmark for this game.
the little kids who got a PS3 just for Ratchet and Clank? C'mon. That's got to be such a small number of the installed base. First off, most little kids want a Wii for Mario and the other NIntendo games. Moreover, most parent do not get little kids a PS3 because it's more expensive than a Wii and it's more of an adult system. The PS3 does not have a significant number of little kids in its installed base. Most people that own it are late teens and up. These people do, for the most part, want PS3. Yes more than half the installed base will buy it AND others will purchase a PS3 just for it. [email protected] kids who bought a PS3 for Ratchet and Clank. Too funny.
The fact stands that there are loads of spoilt little kids out there with PS3s who aren't going to buy MGS4. Do you have any counter-argument to any of the other categories? Metal Gear Solid isn't Halo. Hardcore gamers hold it in deep reverence but you ask a guy on the street and chances are he doesn't know what you're talking about. It's just not the kind of game that appeals to casual gamers at all, and believe it or not, but casual gamers make up a very large chunk of the market indeed. No matter how good MGS4 turns out to be, it will struggle to sell well. If the gaming market was going to be pretty spartan during 2008 then I'd expect more sales but there are going to be too many games to choose from and many people just don't want a long, serious single player stealth game.
10 hrs? 20 hrs? 30 hrs?
Metal Gear has never been a short experience. I expect the game to be in the 20 to 25 hour range.
MGS4(as a whole)>>>>>> >>>> Gears of War Watch. We will see in the reviews.
the disagree bandit is back.
Ill disagree with you, and I dont even know why. Got it?!?
but I disagree that you don't know why. You know that I know that you know that I know why you disgaree. Agreed?
Disagreed. That is why the call me the disagree bandit.
You DON'T know why you disagree.
Unless Gears of War 2 can save it..lol.
The best looking technical game the 360 can spit out is Mass Effect. And we know how that one turned out. Graphically the ps3 is second to none in the console market. The 360 fans are still blindly saying that Gears is the best looking 360 game. I'd say its bioshock.
Another AAA exclsuive that can only be found PLAYSTATION® 3. $niper
Dude, you follow him to like every thread and post that under his comments. Creeeeeeeeepyyyyyyyyyyyyy.
Is an overflowing septic tank!
MS silence at CES added to it. The site just isn't as fun without those guys blindly supporting the 360.
wsa this the big announcement that that guy was gonna make if the packers won?
nope, this was from the same show as the bet against the packers.
funny. well I think alot of sites are gonna want to bash this game. I can already see it. But even if mass effect wich should arrive in late 2008 or bioshock arrive in 2008 the ps3 still has better games. GOW3, FF13,LBP, Resistance 2 all seem better than bioshock or mass effect or any of it's sequels. I'M GONNA BUY THIS GAME ON DAY 1, I HOPE MOST OF U GUYS GET TO PLAY IT, THAT WAY WE CAN RAT OUT THOSE CHEATING BASTARTDS AT 1UP IF THEY TRY TO MESS WITH MGS4.
But I am so taking off to wait in line for this one. I'm sure you can pre-order. But it would be fun to be part of the buzz.
now thinking about it. I wonder which PS3 games would have a midnight release party. I'm sure FFXIII would, MGS4, and maybe even Resistance 2. Any other guesses? Edit: DAAAAAAAAH... I got a disagree too!? Damn, no one is safe :P
I planned on doing that too Blademask. I've never worked the day a new MGS came out. My friends laugh at me, but hey its like if Christmas only came along every 3 years for me.
"you ain't fazin' the amazin', while your guns raisin', ours is BLAZIN' " haha
