Metal Gear Solid 5 Is Possibly So Big That It May Dwarf GTA 5

Kojima Productions' Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain has been hyped for its massive scale, especially compared to Ground Zeroes.

DarkOcelet3152d ago (Edited 3152d ago )

Since MGSV is bigger than Skyrim. Then it will be bigger than GTAV.

I thought Ground Zeroes was a bit big for a small game. Then this which is 200 times bigger will be super massive.

I cant contain my excitement and the Night and Day difference will make the replay value unbelievably amazing. Also the weather will make an awesome challenge.

OMG cant wait... i think if a buy this game, i will not need any other for a year at least

Bansai3152d ago

I need this game in my veins, but i'm slowly getting pissed and impatient

DarkOcelet3152d ago

Give me Witcher 3,Bloodborne and MGSV and i am set for 2015. Everything else is just icing on the damn beautiful cake.

PoSTedUP3152d ago (Edited 3152d ago )

Hhour, P5, MGS5 and GT7p for me.

solid_snake36563152d ago (Edited 3152d ago )

@PoSTedUP hhour may not even come out on consoles, since David Sears is gone. Only confirmation they've given is it's coming out on steam is march

midnight_233152d ago

Mgsv, Witcher 3,and uncharted 4. Everything else is the icing for me.

@darkocelot Ground Zeroes is not big, sorry

crxss3145d ago

even if it's larger it probably wont be as populated. lots of barren land to play with

I am very eager to play this game. Kojima has never failed me. Looking forward to losing a lot of sleep and getting yelled at my boss for being late to work. #LaLiLuLeLo


I wonder how big it is compared to Just Cause 2?

Dhampir3152d ago

90% of it will be empty space. I can create a game world 10000x bigger than MGSV, but it's still nothing to brag about because it's mostly empty space. Ikusagami for ps2 advertised 65000 enemies on screen, but it amounted to basically cutting grass with a sword. I guess that's all dynasty warriors style games though.

DarkOcelet3152d ago

Empty space? I don't think so. Kojima always put an intricate amount of details in his games. It will feel alive, like a real place and you can fulton almost everything. I cant wait. None shall escape my fulton.

bennissimo3151d ago

Yup. There's nothing shown of MGSV so far that indicates it will have a lot to do.

showtimefolks3152d ago (Edited 3152d ago )

Between these and than there is so much we don't know yet about 2015 games

Order 1886
Witcher 3
uncharted 4
borderlands handsome collection

Than If we get FF15 in 2015 than its another possibly huge game

I don't think I will have time for much for rest of 2015

On Xbox side I am waiting for crackdown, scale bound and quantum break

DarkOcelet3152d ago

There is also Just Cause 3 and Persona V. Too many games, so little money, so little time.

MajorLazer3151d ago

MGS V, Bloodbourne, Just Cause 3 and UC4 will make my year :D

vandal GAB3151d ago

Bigger doesn't always mean better, it's all about keeping gamers interested!

TheOverToe3144d ago

All I need this year are The Phantom Pain, MK8 DLC and Zelda Wii U. It seems that everyone has forgotten Zelda. Also a new Star Fox game. It's gonna be fawkin awesome. A genuinely great year for gaming. Hopefully it all turns out perfectly.

Imagine if Rockstar release some single player DLC for GTA5 too.

DarkOcelet3144d ago

It could be great. Shamefully i can get one console at a time so i choose the PS4. Offcourse i will buy the WiiU/Xone but maybe 3 or 4 years from now.

What game is GTAV San Andreas?
(in the map)

MSpence5163152d ago (Edited 3152d ago )

Remember, GTAV was also first a last gen titlte. Could've been larger if it was this gen only.....

Edit:Apparently, someone disagrees with facts. Umm, ok.

getrektedmate3152d ago (Edited 3152d ago )

MGS Phantom Pain is coming to last gen systems as well which makes your point invalid.

Joe9133152d ago

I thought PP was a current gen only title only GZ was both.

MSpence5163152d ago

Being that it is being developed for both makes my point valid. GTAV was in development on last gen only and was then upgraded.

bloop3152d ago

Not only was GTA V developed solely for last gen hardware, but I think comparing it to the PP map is pointless anyway. Most of the PP map will be open countryside/desert (not saying that's a bad thing) and GTA V has a huge full blown breathing, living city in it. I don't think we'll see anything on par with that until the next GTA arrives. The detail and little touches in GTA V still blow me away today. I'm not taking anything away from the PP as its one of the games I'm most looking forward to, but you can't really compare the 2. Apples and oranges.

raWfodog3152d ago

@ bloop

I'm glad I scrolled down and saw your commment before I posted because I was going to basically say the same thing. It's pretty moot to have a super huge game world if story and missions are only going to take place in certain areas/bases. It seems like it will be a chore to travel long distances. Will free-roaming unlock hidden areas/items/missions? At least with GTAV, you could stumble across those extra missions or find cars/activities that you were looking for.

Not that I'm not looking forward to the game (I am very much) but huge worlds seem really pointless unless there's something to do in them.

_-EDMIX-_3152d ago

It actually doesn't....

He makes a valid point if you actually know about the history of media formats.

PS2 and XB used DVD9

360...used DVD9

GTAIV was small, was missing many features and it was revealed that it was due to lack of space as they are again...using the exact same format as last gen when they made GTASA.

GTAV used an extra disk for 360 as an install to solve their problem, but clearly....if they again had bluray on both, it would be BIGGER or at least have much more features as a Bluray is STILL larger then 2 DVDs..

You follow me?

Thus.....he is correct to state that GTAV indeed could have been larger if released this gen ONLY, as they would now be making it with NEXT GEN in mind, ie Bluray on both, HDDs on both etc.

MGSV is also on last gen systems yes, but MGSV is also unknown about just how much disk on 360 is actually being used to fill it up. They could be using 3 or even 4....

TheCommentator3152d ago

Just Cause is 400 square miles according to Wiki, and it fit onto one DVD. I'm pretty sure GTA V is not that big, as I have played both, but I couldn't find any info to confirm this 100%.

Also, I fail to see the facts in your post.

MSpence5163152d ago

Just Cause also was a lot of somewhat empty space like Far Cry 4.

Mega243152d ago

Just Cause has barely anything in it though, which makes it really boring after completing the ca
