Kojima's final years at Konami were turbulent to say the least, but his legacy should be preserved. Solid Snake's swan song title has yet to be re-released on any other platform even after over a decade in the market.
MGS4 deserves Remastering the most of all PS3 exclusives.
That honor belongs to Demon’s Souls actually.
I don't agree but Bluepoint will sort you out most likely.
Naw man, demon souls isn't even on the same level of mgs4. I'd love a remaster of metal gear solid 4!
Demon's Souls was already remastered.
I would rather them fully remaster the entire series starting with the first game.
Didn't they already do that with the Metal Gear Solid Legacy on PS3?
it's time to start from MGS1 remake/reimagining done by bluepoint games It does amazes me that to this day MGS4 remains an exclusive and it was my first MGS game and loved it simply loved it. If any game deserved a remaster treatment it was MGS4
No, the GCN version sucks compared to the PSone version. Worse dialog, worse controls (yes, really), and they completely BUTCHERED the soundtrack. I've completed the PSone version 13+ times. I've completed the GCN version 0 times because its so boring. I always tell myself to go back to the GCN version because I am the biggest MGS fan, but I just don't have the motivation to do so. What a shame! What a waste of time, money, and resources.
Snake Eater needs a Remake.
MGS2 needs one more.
No. Subsistence is perfect.
Damn...you all are right
Metal Gear 1 and 2 need it most
MGS4 was amazing and the perfect send off of the story. The scenes of snake in the microwave chamber for lack of better wording, I thought it was the end for snake. I shed a man tear for MGS4. The only other game that managed to do that was The Walking Dead. Powerful writing.
yep me too, that scene where snake has to crawl through the microwave tunnel was so emotional for me 😢 Amazing game one of my all time favourites
My thumb cried as well during that scene.
Yup. Shame it's stuck on an older console. I tried to replay recently via PSNow but, my internet didn't give the best experience. Would love to give these guys money for a remaster. Once it's ported over to x86 I'm sure they can put it on just about any platform from there.
The hype that was surrounding this game was insane. It was all anyone wanted to see when the PS3 was announced. Games were on one level, this was off the charts. Edit: I’d put RE5 and GTA4 at that same level. COD4 was something that blew up as well before release.
If you do it, do it right and include all of MGO. MGO is just as important to this game as anything else. It would be a disgrace not to have it.
I always wanted a MGS Portable Ops type main console game. That was one of my favorite online ganes ever. I was top of the leaderboards for a while lol
That's what I'm saying. MGO is totally awesome but was held back by some awkward interface problems like on PS3 by having to use the console browser to purchase anything. That was crazy inconvenient lol. And on top of that the fact that PS3 had a rough start getting going. But they seriously missed the boat on the remaster boom this gen. They could've made some serious money remastering this for PS4/ PC. Millions of dollars left on the table. Some games like Last of Us 1 found greater success on PS4. Same would have absolutely been true for MGS4. So sad.
I'm a huge MGS fan that never got into MGO, but it's awesome to see people passionate about it. I feel the same way about Splinter Cells multiplayer component, Spies Vs Mercs from the Pandora Tomorrow/Chaos Theory days. Like MGO, it was underappreciated and most people just played the single player.
Still my top game. Been carrying this profile pic here for 12 years.
It was my first mgs and I loved it, one of my games of all time for sure, I only wish act 3 was longer and had more stealth missions.
Metal Gear Solid 4 was the killer app that everyone were waiting for. The very definition of a system seller. A real PS3 exclusive. Exceptional & legendary game. It's a grand tribute & fitting finale for Solid Snake's story. It wrap up the entire Metal Gear Saga in a satisfying experience & epic conclusion. It's a Hideo Kojima masterpiece.
It was crazy watching fanboys straight up begging for this to come to their console.
Just realised that I have only bought each new playstation because an MGS launched on it. Obviously I used each one a ton after, but the driving force for me switching to next gen was the new MGS.
Mgs4 was a godly game. Massively long installs though
Yeah but I remember that Snake smoking load/install screen being impressive (on a technical level) back in the day.
One of my favorite all-time games. Bring it to PC!
I would love a remaster of this title. Make it digital as the switching discs and second install scenario were a bit much. Watching Snake puff away and we install....waste of time.
MGS4 was only one disc.
All PS3 games are one disc, unless you consider collections/sagas one game
Theres a line of dialog about not having to use multiple discs, and the between chapter installs were fine.
This game has stood the test of time. Still looks good after all these years.
yeah even just a 60fps 4k or 1440p port to PS4 or PS5 would be sweet
A masterpiece. My favourite metal gear. Perfect way to tie up the whole franchise.
I remember hearing the cow noise come out of the weird long legged things and was scared as to wtf is going on lol
The audio in this game is amazing all round.
It would be awesome to get a new extended version with actual gameplay added.
You got ur wish with MGS5 with actual gameplay and poor story
I enjoyed MGS5 for many hours (the first game in the series I've truly enjoyed playing) but then I discovered Ghost Recon: Wildlands and realized it is the exact same game without the Kojima BS. Kinda like how the original Splinter Cell saved me from MGS2.
The textures are really blurry, and the game renders at 1024x768. It definitely needs a remaster with some visual clean-up.
Make the fighting game style fight at the end skippable and I'm in.
I cannot believe its that old, time really does fly when you are having fun on a PlayStation 😂 I recall my sense of achievement when I completed a no detection/no kills run on this game, fantastic fun. My only gripe that I remember, is some of the story was super convoluted and I had a struggle following it.....par for the course with a MGS game I suppose.
This is why It will be cool if Sony follows Microsoft’s BC , games not only come over to the next Gen but they double or more the FPS can add HDR , scale their textures to the highest I mean Sony has some great games that would benefit from that and you get all those features for free. Still not sure what’s not to love about your favorite game getting all these features for free. BC from PlayStation to PS2 was marketed as a selling point.
Its a neat feature but that is just it. When I buy a next gen console 99% of the time I want to play next gen games that might be sequels or new IP's. I actually prefer new IP's as I get tried of playing sequels that are just old games with better graphics and a few new gameplay mechanics. Only 1% of the time I might be looking at playing old games with nicer graphics. Like playing Uncharted again for the 20th time with nicer graphics is not my idea of playing next gen. However If no new next gen game then perhaps. This is why its more important on xbox
I understand what you mean Welkin Cole , I don’t per say buy a next gen console to play older titles But certain series to me I will , Gears and Red Dead , Diablo 3 etc etc I will still play 5-10 years from now . Retro gaming seems to be a thing and this perseveres it. But if more people than not don’t care about playing Old games then why all the fear of digital ownership over physical was such a big thing ? I mean if no one Is going to replay the games who cares if they delete the files , in which they won’t do and digital is nearing In on ending physical games as the lead seller , I think of BC as a feature I get and will sparingly use vs a Main feature for sure. But I think it goes a long way towards building a great ecosystem on the platform .
What if that game was on xbox? Especially on the series x it will boost the visual to 4K and 60 fps right?
Yea with Snake using a PS3 controller
My personal favorite game of last-gen, and one of the best ever made.
If they remastered this for PS5 along with Skyrim(I know I know), the use of the SSD would be a godsend. No loadtimes for either game. 🤤
Only reason why I have MGS3 over MGS4 as the best MGS game is because MGS3 has the better boss battle. Highlight for me was going back to Shadow mosses and exploring it again in HD Who can forget as well Riden's cutscene? Amazing game.
I've never understood this trend of demanding new consoles then demanding every game from the old consoles be remastered. What was the point?
Seeing it upscaled and running at 60fps on the PC emulation does make me long and hopeful for a PS5 backwards compatibility patch or something of the sort. The convince of taking it over to a friends would be easier then lugging around the whole PC.
Just fix the load times.... please!
Because it's better than MGS5
The ps3 is so sluggish I want to play it without having to put up with that anymore pls
I am still hoping to be able to play PS3 or/and 2 games in PS5, I don't want to lose my online library, untill that day, I guess hoping for remasterd of selected few game are our best hope and kinda sucks, there many hidden gems in older consoles that I want to play and platinum, yes, I could try to emulated them but it's not the same. I have platium every metal gear (exept survival, didn't event touch it) MGS1 and 2 should be remake, the controls have no aged very well.
Doesn't need a remaster, needs BC
The only way I would play it is if Kojima was at the helm...there is better chance of world peace taking place Konami sucks in that pride.
I would not trust Konami with anything
Like Metal Gear Solid 4 Guns of the Patriots is the only PS3 game worthy of a remaster... Due to Sony's (very) bold choice in terms of architecture for the PS3, with that (in)famous Cell processor which was equally a reason to marvel at some PS3 games as it was to cry foul on others, making the PS4 backward compatible with PS3 games proved to be pretty much impossible, and for all we know even the PS5 could suffer trying to do so. That means that quite a lot of fantastic titles are doomed to remain secluded on the PS3, like the Resistance games, Killzone 2&3, LittleBigPlanet 1&2, Infamous 1&2, the Motorstorm games, etc. Unless someone decides to re-release them on the following hardware in the form of compilations, which doesn't look like it's about to happen anytime soon. That's the reason why I support emulation on PC. But when it comes to the PS3, it's quite astounding how difficult that system and its games are to replicate. 14 years after its initial inception you'd think the system would be entirely emulated without hassle...Probably due to that very same Cell processor coming to think of it.
