Metal Gear Online announced for PS3, along with on stage demonstration.

"The level is a broken city, but not dusty like MGS4; more dark dirt and pale grey concrete -- it's a completely war torn city. Graphics looks on a similar level to MSG4, probably the same engine.

There's also a way to scan your enemies information and steal it from them. If you can hold them for a certain amount of time,
you get the same vision you have for your teammates, for your enemies as well. They pulse orange while your friends pulse blue
so you can see all your enemies wherever they are, even thru walls, etc.

It looks like each character. has different skills. This player has 'scanning lv 1', 'asslt r mastery 1', 'and CQC mastery 1'. They will start the beta test for MGS, a closed beta test, 3,000 people. Stars July 24th and ends August 6th."

15 min MGS4 gameplay video due for release tonight.

The Beta appears to be only for Japan. I've checked the Kojima Productions site and the English version has no mention of a public Beta, while the Japanese site has an option to sign up.

It's not that easy though. We all know how easy it is to get a Japanese PSN account. What the Beta requires of you is a Konami account, something available to you apparently only in Japan. For confirmation of entry to the Beta you will be contacted by mail/telephone (from what I deduce) and that apparently can only be Japan.

I still have hope however, that when I wake up, the English site will also offer an opportunity to enter the Beta. :(

So this is in a way SOcCOM online only while we waith for real SOCCOM 4, at least it seems like similar strategy.

There are more good non-Kojima Metal Gear games than one would realize. Scientifically, three examples prove a trend, and in this feature are three excellent Metal Gear games that Hideo Kojima did not direct.

I hope so, still cant forget MGS Survive , the first MGS game without Kojima involvement and it was a complete failure, the thing is Kojima way of thinking is outside the box and that's why their games 99% end up unique, original and a almost instant classic. MGS series are full of intricate things that somehows connects to each other, Lalulilelo, the Patriots, Outher heaven, Foxhound, PMCs , heck even Kojima manage to insert DARPA in there lol, a US government Defense Agency. So is really great MGS3 Remake is reviving the series but without Kojima who knows of the end result, I hope Konami have another or more developers insight their studios who can also think outside the box.

senorfartcushion110d ago

It actually can’t. But it won’t matter.

Kojima is Metal Gear the same way that Christopher Nolan is The Dark Knight, or David Lynch is Twin Peaks: The Return episode 8. Artistry is the creation of a thing from your own thoughts and feelings. Take away the original artist’s thoughts and feelings and you have a new thing entirely.

This isn’t going to stop the mega corporation creating a fake version and spending millions TELLING customers that it’s made with the same thoughts and feelings. The masses will buy the idea the same way the corporation will sell the idea.

just_looken110d ago

I guess everyone forgot metal gear solid rising was tossed to platnium games with a story script and that is it.

Z501109d ago

Kojima was involved in Rising tho

just_looken109d ago

kpjima just did the story everything else was platnium games look it up.

Hence i said script

neutralgamer1992109d ago

i think the bigger issue is whether or not Konami is actually interested in fully funding AAA games development. Even this remake is done by a studio not really known in gaming industry. Quality remake/projets vs cheap cash in quick releases. Which way will Konami head. I am a huge MGS fan and i feel like Kojima did long time MGS fans dirty with how made MGS5 and it's story elements

senorfartcushion109d ago

Remakes and remasters provide a gateway through to producing AAA games faster and cheaper.

RaveTears109d ago (Edited 109d ago )

Actually MGS Portable Ops which was technically the first canon MGS game that Kojima wasn’t mainly involved with it. Kojima was only the producer but not the writer and director.

Konami did other MGS spin off that were successful but that because Konami put effort. Just along Konami is not lazy and cash grab, they can a MGS game without Kojima.

i mean sure, but he made it the thing it is today and why people love it so much.

i think its not easy to replicate.

Flawlessmic110d ago

I doubt it could.

Say what you want about the bloke, but his games are uniquely his.

I don't think anyone makes games like kojima does, for better or worse.

Could mgs continue without him, yea maybe, but it would lacking his genius so wouldn't be the same.

Soulsborne110d ago

Well , he already created it. They just have to recreate it? Not like its a new concept or IP. Trash article.

Terry_B110d ago

Yes. It only needs motivated clever people.
