What? It's only just been announced and a beta has already started? Is this a completely different game to MGS4 or will it come with it?

No bigger size screenies?

Difficult to tell the differencies of these compared to the other MGS4 screenies. On this resolution it looks the same.

looks good - they just should get rid of these overhead bars.

I dislike online for MGS.

in what way entecillo? you are not forced to play it. Oh, and you know what? It could be fun... Not that I can tell from those small screens (what's the point of releasing screens of that size anyways) and I haven't heard much from it yet either...

In the way of the null story-line.

Looks like fun!

This is much different from the MGS3s online.

Read up on the info on IGN.
It uses the same engine as MGS4- 12 players online (Teamed so that's 6v6).

You can see your team-mates as blue thingies through any wall and stuff and after you kill an enemy- You can hack into them to reveal the enemoy locations.

Actually I just summed up the info pretty well for you here lol :p

Actually, it's 16 players. They demoed it with 12 players but they said the max number of players is 16.

From these small pictures it looks a lot like GRAW.

Wow, this is such a joke. Why should a company make one game that would include single and multiplayer modes? It's better to milk fans and sell them separately! I hope it'll bomb, so that other publishers don't follow this.:|

Konami and online...

good luck.

Looks ok, can,t really tell from these small screens give us the ingame trailer.
Commented on 2007-07-24 19:10:06
The game actually has cool features that I'm interested in. Stat building, such as CQC leveling. You can see enemies through walls, and their stances as well. It should be interesting to see the trailer.

Im pretty sure Konami are not developing this. I heard it was a seperate American dev team.

'Where am trailer?
Konami disallowed any media to be pulished on the new PSP game (don't get excited- it's just another novel thingy) and this game until ''later dates''.

Marketing and stuff I guess.

I was just thinking the same thing and I agree but Hideo was complaining he wanted bigger Blu-Ray to make his finale MGS and to try and fit an extensive online mode such as this would have probably been a bit tough.

But you are right- There is no excuse (other than- it's MGS)
Anyway I'm hoping budget price for this.

At the moment my status is a- ''No buy'' though.
I never cared for online game anyway.

where can u sign up or ist jpn only?

This is pathetic. They are obviously looking for more money. They should include BOTH in the same package, what a joke. Should we also expect the same for every game from now on?

Idk, I am more than happy to pay 60 dolalrs for what i have seen in the demonstration of the single player. Maybe the online component will be value priced over even released for mgs4 owners for free over the psn.

I am soo dissapointed with what i've seen of MGS today, and making another game just for online is a complete joke, its like having halo 3 and halo 3 online but much much much worse as this looks very low budget, like a last minute decision, lets just hope its free!

Now there's an idea! Maybe then we'd get some significant improvements to single player looks and the length and scope of the campaign, while avoiding the feeling of getting a dumbed down online component like GRAW's.

Xbox Live Arcade has this condescending ring to it which seems to prevent large scale releases (not to mention its size limitation that Phil Harrysson so subtly pointed out), but PSN has already taken a firm stand with GTHD, Tekken 5 and upcoming Wipeout HD and Warhawk. It makes this a super smooth prospect in my opinion. Free starter pack with the base stuff in, then expand on it with new modes and map packs.

That said, it remains to be seen how this'll actually be distributed. If it's a separate, full priced disc game then it's pretty awkward, but I'm pretty confident that it isn't.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (44 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (44 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts electric devices, entertainment devices, etc. So who has that much money left that isn't reserved for Christmas perparation and gifts?! All around bad timing, hence why I believe Spring would be right (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Then you have the fact that by now people's wallets are hurting. And many people buyed new consoles, PS4 Base or Pro, and XB1 S. Plus Holiday season sells a lot of other things like clothes, PC parts, (2 Hours ago)
