I started my 6th playthrough last night (this time as "Young Snake w/Bandana").... and ended up playing until 6am this morning. The game is as fresh as when it was first released.

Hopefully more people will pick it up, because it's sublime.

cloudkev3534d ago

you think theres no chance of trophys then.thats the only thing stopping me from doing it again, would be my sixth time too.

PotNoodle3534d ago

^^ I'm on my 18th playthrough and not just because i know there might not be trophies coming, but because i love playing the game.

GVON3534d ago

I know what you mean,I started it for the first time since November and played it different because of the weapons,and the fact I'm going through and trying not to kill anything

jammy_703534d ago

does that mean trophies for it? it shud but i duno, sony said every game in 09 will have trophies right? well this shud :):) maybe.....

Foxgod3534d ago

Well, if they port it il pick it up, i am sure more people would.

PirateThom3534d ago (Edited 3534d ago )

They won't port it to a Microsoft platform.

Too many Apple and Sony references, too many cuts and downgrades to the core content of the game. A lot of "non-Microsoft" advertising, basically.

Do you have a Mac? They might port it there.

IdleLeeSiuLung3534d ago

I'm confused, why talk about ports? Isn't the article talking about MGS4 for the PS3?

Anyhow, I'm suprised this title went budget so soon. This was and probably still is the PS3's best title. Is it not selling well? I mean, if it sold 4-5 million to date, why make it budget?

I guess I shouldn't question a good thing....

I hope they release this as a "Substance" version of the game, like Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance and Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistance.

trophies rock

im half way through the game on big boss extreem


Kushan3534d ago

Call me cynical, but I reckon if we're going to see trophies, it'll be in a "substance" version of the game.

Lombax3534d ago

They are talking about the game getting a price cut. A price cut is not a release, so it is not required to have trophies.

Now if they release MGS4:Subsistence (or whatever they decide to call it) that would be considered a new release.

Zeus Lee3534d ago

Going to pick this up again,best game of this gen without a doubt.

Anonymous Coward3534d ago
