OWNT speculates the reasons behind Konami's patch fiasco and considers how gamers can avoid being duped by similar scandals in the future.

but it looks like i need to go research what this fiasco really entails.

Is the game so broken that it is unplayable? Or is this being made into something bigger than it really is?

Skate-AK4309d ago

There was some audio and framerate problems. Also SH2 was missing the fog. Idk if it's unplayable though cause I havnt played it. The reason it has these problems is cause Konami gave the dev team a beta code so it had bugs that were not in the final release and they didn't know how to fix it. Konami couldn't find the source code for the games.

can't they sue Konami for this?

Dark_Overlord4309d ago

I'm not sure about suing, but they can demand a refund, as Konami knowingly sold a broken product that they refuse to fix.

So PS3 has the definitive version. OK. Seriously though, I feel bad for any and all gamers (my brothers & sisters) that got screwed in this fiasco.

Servbot414309d ago

Nah, PS2 and the original Xbox have the definitive versions of SH2. PS2 has the definitive version of SH3.

they still haven't fixed the occasional freezing/crashing issues where you are forced to shutdown your ps3 (takes forever).

Interesting that Konami is releasing nothing of note and still enjoying high profits. I guess this is the allure to companies.

It was probably due to the half-hearted release of the Metal Gear Solid Collection v1.

Imagine the extra sales Konami could’ve made if it had put some effort into it.

Half hearted? MGS: MC is the best collection of Metal Gear games you can get with tons of bonus content.

Why are you mad? Because they didn't make the games 4K so you can see the low resolution textures and warping better? Most of you cry babies never even touched the MSX Metal Gears.

Of course, they rereleased MGS series on modern platforms. Thank You Mr. Kojima.
