I noticed no one has started a thread about this game yet, so I thought I'd take the initiative.
For those who haven't seen the 15minute E3 trailer:
http://www.gametrailers.com/umwatcher.php?id=2445

For those who have, what did you think? Shit blew me away, it even softened the blow of parting with 450 to get a PS3. It's a shame it isn't due out on launch, but it is widely believed to be released on 7/7/2007 with it being the 20th anniversary of the original release of Metal Gear on the NES. The trailer itself is packed with plenty of hidden messages from Hideo Kojima (there's a HD version of the trailer available for download on that site too) as is typically the case, so keep your eyes peeled and bring it up on here! I know ther ea lot of MG fans on this board so there should be some decent speculation about this title. Anyhow, build on

i honestly think that the mgs series will go down in history as the best series ever in gaming

they have never let me down.. i am buying a ps3 just for this...

my question is..

are there actually any ppl out there who for some reason dont like the mgs's? and why?

(and dont say.. its because of the cutscenes.. the cutscenes are what make the game!)

I think you're right, MGS will take its rightful place on the 'greatest games ever' podium, along with Super Mario and Street Fighter. It's a shame MGS ends with this one though, but I can see it being totally crazy.
A bit of bad news too, as expected, the new Ninja (Raiden) isn't playable in MGS4, but I expect there'll be a VR Missions type game coming out for that.

Metal gear has like the greatest, deepest story to a game ever, definitely one of my favourite game series.
I think they should re-do Metal gear and Metal geat 2:solid snake in 2d though that would be cool.

^^ Hate to break it to you, but Hideo Kojima has already stated he won't remake MG and MG2:SS as he regards them as classics as they are. Though saying this, Konami might go over his head while they're waiting for the next Solid Snake to come along.

love this series, definetely one of my favourites cause its got it all, gameplay, story, top of the line graphics on every game...

this is one of the reasons im gonna buy a ps3....cant wait

the main reason why i will cut loose the 400 or 500 dollars for the PS3 = MGS4.

i love this game a like a pimp loves his money... i have never been let down by any installment in the series yet and i dont believe i ever will. the MGS4 trailer is filled with so much stuff it was unbelievable... i also believe this will be a great game even to those not really familiar with the storyline...

kojima is the master of his shit... he brought the stealth genre to another level and is continuing to raise the stakes.. as we can see with MGS4.

true it is sad... this is supposedly the end of the saga. but isnt that what hes been saying since MGS2. and i know he keeps confirming that this is it... but who knows. i will keep my fingers crossed.... even if this really is the end.. kojima is sure to be involved in other projects that we will probably come to love like the MGS games...

as far as the newest release... anyone know how big boss is gonna be played into the story line? or atleast any speculations... im very anxious to see how he ties back in... also the suped up raiden this time around.. the whining little brat we grew to hate in MGS2 looks like he has taken a 180 degree turn... for the best i must admit.

anyways.. anyone ready for MGS portable ops for PSP? i know i am... it picks up after snake eater... the outer heaven episode if im not mistaken... looks like it will be a solid release...

theres also a pretty detailed forum at the sony boards dedicated to the whole MGS series... check it out, its worth a peek.

im not sure where u live but one alternative (if its available).. is you can rent the PS3 and the game. at my local video store near my house the rent those systems out... PS2, Xbox360, etc.. im sure it will be the same way when the PS3 drops... might be a less expensive alternative!

As to Big Boss' role in MGS4 there's a picture of him with some kind of random exoskeleton on a promotional poster, so it's possible that he could be involved. Regardless I'd say getting hold of his remains in order to slow Snake's genetic degeneration may also be a possible sub-plot to the story too.

not much i dont think.. prolly like 20 to 25 bucks for a few days... might be alittle higher right around PS3 launch time but it should go down after awhile.. which is actually perfect cause MGS4 isnt a PS3 launch title... it wont be till 2007 till its dropped!!

I completed Metal Gear around about the time I just got off MGS, was a quality and highly innovative game for its time. I started trudging through MG2 and I enjoy what I've played so far. Having guards that could actually look around them was a masterstroke. Gotta love the ongoing Rambo theme as well haha

I got the games for MSX, and Nes. Got like every Kojima game, Policenauts too.

I've heard the whole Big Boss thing is gonna be something similar to how Ocelot graphed Liquid's hand onto his arm and so like absorbed part of him. They tryin to do the same thing with part of Big Boss and absorb probably part of his legendary skils as a soldier. Sounds ridiculous but part of what makes MGS so good! Oh yeah:

1. MGS1 - obviously ain't the best graphics but sickest story, ahead of its time
2. MGS3 - nice prequel, awesome seeing young Ocelot and playing as Big Boss
3. MGS2 - another great game but the story got kind of convoluted and fell on itself towards the end of the game. And I don't totally hate Raiden but he wasn't as interesting for me as Snake. Still, like I said, great game and the actual gameplay is tight as usual just think Kojima could've went through the story a bit better and Solidus's Sons of Liberty crew isn't nearly as sick as Foxhound in MGS1 or The Cobras in MGS3.

ive been hearing loose talk and rumors about this for awhile... im definitely happy Kojima has decided to do this...

im always skeptical about game to movie adaptations... usually cause they end up being really corny.. i have no doubt that if Kojima is calling the shots in the project that it will be memorable...

nice find......

06-01-2006, 01:46 AM
^ personally, I don't like the idea of it being a movie, with all the detailed cinematic clips and lengthy ones at that, the game technically IMO "is" a movie.......unless they decided to make it a computer graphix type flick (like Final Fantasy Advent Children) I'm not interested.....its like the new Scarface game comin out, they got Pacinos facial features, but not his voice......how can u have Tony Montana without Pacino doing the voice?!
thats how I feel about Solid Snake, without David Hayter as the voice, its not cool...its a minor thing to hate on about, but thats just the way I am, lol.


i agree... if hayter aint doin the acting... it will screw up the whole effect. no hayter = no MGS

Yeah, this game looks EXTREMELY sick and I honestly cannot wait for it. MGS is my favortie video game series of all time and all of the games have been beyond perfection. Only thing I'm not looking forward to is the PS3's price. I was hoping that Kojima would port MGS4 to the 360, but that would mean the online mode wouldn't be free.

Also, I'm getting a PSP just for Portable Ops. Can't wait to play as Big Boss again. This year and the next are gonna be hell for my wallet, lol. And ever since I bought Subsistence I've been playing all the games in chronological order, in fact, just today I beat MGS2, so now to wait for Portable Ops and Guns Of The Patriots.

BTW, about 3-4 weeks ago, I started playing the online mode in Subsistence, and its great. So far its the only online game I've played but I doubt there's any other out there that can match it.

If it makes yo uguys feel any better about buying a PS3 for 600 bones, the camo suit that Snake uses can only work on the PS3 according to Kojima (his suit turns into the colour of his surroundings while immobile, so I dunno how they'll remedy that if it's to get on the 360)

Really? I didn't know that. I'm not relying on it being ported cause I'm sure it would be too much of a bitch to suddenly change a game that you've been developing for solely one console to another.

There are other intriguing character developments are Ninja Raiden, and the possible involvement of Big Boss. If you look at some ofthe concept art, you can see a really old Big Boss in some sort of exoseleton, which have people wondering if he'll make a return..
