Konami employee confirms no retail version for Ground Zeroes on XB1 and PS4, big announcement coming

It seems like Konami is not planning to release a retail version for the next gen consoles. However, there is a 'big announcement' coming soon.


The big announcement will take place before this year’s Video Game Awards. So that means before December 6.

W-What? That's just weird.

xHeavYx1809d ago

I find that really hard to believe, especially thinking how big this game will be

rambi801809d ago (Edited 1809d ago )

Its the new way of dealing with the used games market.

Lboogieskells1809d ago

IGN just confirmed, 30.00 USD for one mission.

camel_toad1809d ago

I do too. There's just no way that's possible...

mikeslemonade1808d ago

This is so Kojima.. Even though this is like done by Konami, I would not be suprised if Kojima did this. He's always done the unorthodox practice such as the the first multiple layer blu-ray game and then having you to install games by chapters.

I personally don't mind this, however it does suck a little because the games price will not drop as fast.

It's fantastic this game is coming to Xbox One where I can play it. My system of choice.

SilentNegotiator1808d ago (Edited 1808d ago )

I hope they don't mind having 1/10 of the sales if this is true.

mikeslemonade1808d ago (Edited 1808d ago )


MGSV coming to the Xbox one.. With a lower resolution. **ZING!**

yellowgerbil1808d ago

this game will likely only have about 2 hrs of gameplay. It is basically a glorified demo.
Am expecting it to be like the snake portion of MGS2 in length, with as much cutscenes as there is gameplay.
digital makes sense

RumbleFish1808d ago

That would be the first MGS I don't buy. Sorry.

No retail for a download title this massive seems odd. Maybe therr more than expected. Kojima loves trolling us.

seanpitt231808d ago

My Internet would probably take weeks to download this game on psn so I hope it's not true.

joe901809d ago (Edited 1809d ago )

I'm not bothered about the whole download thing with any other game. It's just with MGS games i like to have the physical copy to go with my collection.

0ut1awed1809d ago (Edited 1809d ago )

Where is the original Sons of Liberty, Snake Eater, or Subsistence? Just seems kind of odd that someone obsessed enough to want a physical copy of the next MGS just for their collection doesn't actually have a full collection.

joe901809d ago (Edited 1809d ago )

Obsessed? Where did that come from?

I owned original subsistence and substance but was offered £55 for both at it's peak before the HD collection came out, Plus my PS3 doesn't play PS2 games so seemed like the right thing to do.

Anyway Why does it matter to you. I own the physical copy of them all don't i, Least my PS1 versions are not from the PSN store. Also i get to play them in HD, i could of emulated them on my PC and had them in HD but i wanted the HD collection in physical copy.

0ut1awed1808d ago

Jeez no reason to get so defensive.

I simply thought it was odd.

I agree. I try to get all the art books as well.

EeJLP-1808d ago (Edited 1808d ago )

The best versions of each game isn't 'lacking'. There's no point in having the HD collection and the lesser quality PS2 versions that he wouldn't even be able to play.

I have basically the same.. physical MGS1 from the Essentials Collection, MGS HD Collection (2/3), MGS4. I just don't have tactical missions for PS1 and haven't found the urge to play Peace Walker yet.

They want you to buy it twice for the collectors out there.


Exactly, Kojima wanting it or not, Konami won't pass the chance of making a LE or CE retail later on, and charge us 80 dollars... Which, sadly, I'll happily pay.

princejb1341809d ago

very weird
i rather get the game retail
so sorry konami no retail = no buy from me

Ps4Console1808d ago (Edited 1808d ago )

Well that is downright wrong if they're going to start playing that trick because with the launch titles .
Sony has promised us more games so we can live without this game because all gamers stick together remember Dead Space ring a bell , there not going to stop the used market if they do that our great tradition of actually going to buy a game & chat to other gamers at the store will be over no way & that goes for all console gamers .

zerocrossing1808d ago

Very weird :/ and pretty doubtful too.

...gotta be shittin' me

Benjammin251809d ago

I'd imagine this game will have to be region of 50GB's to download. Do Konami think that everyone will be ok with this? My download limit a month is 30Gb. :(

deadfrag1808d ago (Edited 1808d ago )

Ground Zeros is the prologue it will most likely be just one mission and it will not take 50gb.tHAN Phantom Pain is the actuall game that most likely will exced the 50gb,but will also release in disc!

Soldierone1809d ago

If there really isn't then I'll be buying the PS3 version.

Pillsbury11809d ago (Edited 1809d ago )

Digital for ps4 for me then because I need that high-def 60fps MGS, and I can stream it to my vita! Next gen is here :D
