This week's Famitsu reviews include a perfect score for Kojima's latest masterpiece, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker and also reveals that the story is indeed 30-40 hours long.
OMG, I'd really like to have a PSP now.
But ubisoft should be ashamed.
I got the pspgo and can't wait.
and that is why Konami needs to get going on porting Peace Walker to the PS3 by way of the PSN and remastering it in HD... ...Like Now!!!!!
Jamie, do we need to add how long the other multiplayer aspects of the game besides the campaign/sp of the game? Oh yeah, replay value too. I just bought a Go so now i have my original fat, a 2000, and now this shiny little Go. I hope it's available on PSN upon release.
The 30-40 hour mark.....that's what's DISGRACEFUL For a game that's been in development for soo long to have a 5hour campaign then basically its stealthy RIVAL comes out on UMD with a 30-40 hour SINGLE campaign hell yeh ubisoft should be embarrassed, this has nothing to do with 360/ps3 as much as fanboys would love it to be,this is to do with developers taking the piss out of gamers...simple
Kojima is now the third designer ever to have two games receiving a perfect score from famitsu, the other two being Yasumi Matsuno(Vagrant Story/FFXII) and Miyamota (Zelda:OoT/Zelda:WW). Also MGS is now the second series to have two games on the perfect famitsu scores list.
"Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is set to hit North American shores on June 8, 2010." Starting Jun 8 I'm taking a break from my PS3. MGS:PW you will be mine. I hope pirates give the PSP and this masterpiece a break and buy, for a change, this game.
help kill the time when i do my internship this summer
A real MGS game made by Kojima himself for fans you cannot go wrong with this game.. Especially if its 30-40 hours.. No wonder scores are so high..
That's impressive for a umd. Most console games are less than 20 hrs now a days, so no matter what you think, you have to admit 30 to 40 hrs of game play on the psp is pretty damn good.
That includes sitting through 25 hours of cutscenes.
Your better off with you head up your ass...Stay hidden.
Buy the Game. And Emulate the Game in your PC. There are Emulators for PSP.
The games controls are horrible sadly. I wish they would just allow you to play the game from the PS3. I don't care if the graphics are still psp quality.
"Your better off with you head up your ass...Stay hidden." Or better yet, speak2thehand is better off staying hidden under a cardboard box with nothing more than a little peephole...or a old oil drum...lol
that is too harsh, but sooo true Kojima delivers... on a umd!!!! lol
Wow 30-40 hrs? Please I hope MGS: Rising is this long and not annoying. This makes me wanna buy PSP for real.
And how much of that 30-40 hours is actual game play?
The Go is worth it on the pause function alone. I can pause the game and play music, watch videos and even play another game; Then, jump back into the game exactly where I was.
@JackBNimble hah! thats a cute attempt at trolling.... even if the game is half cutscenes it STILL would have 4 TIMES the gameplay of 90% of the games out now on CONSOLES!.....
Definitely much longer than your usual MGS game - I'd say that's a good thing though.
My first playthrough of MGS4 = 25 hours. Then the big boss emblem run = 4 hours game time, 40 hours of real life game time. damn hard. :(
Yeah, I finished MGS4 in 20 hours. Unless this article means 30-40 hours in the hardest difficulty, this is quite impressive.
I beat it in 24 hours.
and wrists.. amazing game itll be but the downsides of portable gaming.
I think kojima really messed up not puttin this on ps3,great game as this is I would have loved to have seen this in HD in all its splendor,not to mention the ps3s install base is much greater since mgs4
your TV then.
But I have a PSP-1000 :(
I just want to play it with the PS3 controller. I do not like using face buttons to control the camera.
looks like i'm getting a psp
Poor Splinter Cell... outdone by a UMD 8 times over, LOL. Cry moar bots.
and SCC stealth mechanics are poor and dumb down, you can't even drag bodys!
Splinter Cell: Conviction = 5 hour singleplayer + 3 hours COOP story God of War III = 8-10 hour Both owned by MGS: Peace Walker UMD. Both great games. Difference? One on Ps3, one on Xbox 360... But I guess you fanboys cant take the truth and gonna give me alot disagrees now?
Look at me still whining. My bad, I just would rather play this on my big screen in hd. I guess aslong as I know the story is going to be awesome, ill just have to deal with the psp mini screen.
I'll be playing mine on my bigscreen at 480p(not much less than a 360 resolution), with a PS3 controller. But it is a little window, half the size of the screen. But that is still 23".
@DaTruth grr this makes me want to get a go so i can use a dualshock for the game.... this will be the first game in months for my psp 3000(i bought it for remote play mostly-i dont really like portable gaming anymore.)
A 30-40 hour SINGLE-PLAYER campaign that's NOT an RPG? Holy-shmoely.............. -End statement
or better, has a lot of RPG elements from squad upgrades to skills, trading members of squad, training, etc....
I just picked up a PSP GO for this - awesome device.
how in the world can it all fit on one UMD? lol GOTY? Not likely - but should be!
Pardon my ignorance – but can you play PSP games on the TV with a PS3 controller? If so, would take the plunge and buy a PSP, because this is, without a doubt, the true MGS5. And desperate for some stealth gaming, just not too keen on handheld gaming.
The PSP 3000 can hook into a tv and you use the PSP itself as the controller. The PSP Go has bluetooth so you can hook in a PS3 controller as well. :Edit: btw Dell.com has a great sale on the Go
Thanks - probably will opt for the PSP Go then
I mean, a 30 hour campaign on a UMD??? NOW I know what Kojima meant when the PS3 is not sufficient enough to meet his dream. DAMN!!! -End statement
I would pi$$ myself if this was a hoax.... If it is actually a ps3 game and Hideo has released low res images and a small demo based on the portable ops engine. I would have a huge '!' above my head.... Still, i will enjoy it on psp anyway...
Might pick up a PSP-Go just for this game(+i would get a few other PSP games of course) ;-P + Shame its not on the PS3 tho :-( SOB SOB...F-MGS:Rising tho its not even on my 'WANTS' List!!! ;-D
PSP Go? You meant the failing console that Sony lied about could play all new PSP games and yet I cant play Kingdom Hearts when its out? Get PSP 3000 <3 the real king of portable gaming
I hear ya dude.. Kingdom Hearts not coming to Digital download is really upsetting to me.. And Gamestop won't take my go for more than 50 bucks...
Unfortunately this games controls are a total clunkfest. Love MGS but im passing on this. Hated the demo.
Have you not learned anything from the GOW3 demo? -End statement
never thought it would be that long!
Once more we see who is the master of the stealth genre, both in quality and quantity poor splinter cell fans that cried to the 4 winds and their game didnt deliver.
i mean, this IS hideo kojima.
Well, I don't have a PSP. But I can emulate games from PSP on my PC. So I will buy this game, and emulate the game.
Is there such a thing.
not that works on anything more than a few games.
AWESOME!!! Day 1! (30-40 hrs.... wow) Hmm have they ever did a GOTY for PSP games at VGA's?
How long did they consider MGS4 was? Because, that game was only 10-15 hours max. I think it was like 2.5 for the big boss badge IIRC.
I Bet When Metal Gear Rising Comes Out 5 HD DVD on Xbox 360
Peace Walker put Splinter Cell: Conviction to shame! 40 hour vs 5 hours campaign.
wow really how big is a UMD?
