  • Rumor: New Metal Gear has Really Old Snake?

    Konami’s Hideo Kojima is apparently tearing up GDC right now, and Peter Ha sends us this exclusive photo from the press conference. MISSON: THE NEXT MGS, starring a cane-wilding Snake. So, if Snake went by Old Snake in Metal Gear Solid 4, what do we call Snake this time around? Read More

    One of the most anticipated games for the iPhone/iPod Touch has to be Konami’s Metal Gear Solid Touch. Konami released a handful of screenshots and some scarce information on the game last week. Today the company announced in Japan that Metal Gear Solid Touch will be available in the App Store on March 19 (both in the US and Japan). Read More

  • Konami releases first screenshots of the iPhone's Metal Gear Solid Touch

    Right around Christmastime was the last time we heard anything about Metal Gear Solid Touch, Konami’s first game for the iPhone/iPod touch. (Why do people refer to the iPod touch as the “iTouch”?) You play as Old Snake, as he sashays around international hot spots—Eastern Europe, the Middle East, South America and Shadow Moses. Who knew the whole of South America could… Read More

  • Konami's teaser site launched, questions emerge

    Konami has launched a new teaser site¬†for the next Metal Gear Solid. See for yourself and decide what the green characters mean. I’m not sure any more because I tend to get excited about the series coming to the Xbox 360. But hey, why not? [Via¬†gamepod.hu [HR]] Read More

  • Konami makes good-night stories digital

    In case your kids are bored by passively consuming the stories you read to them, the Tereshibai from Konami [JP] might come to the rescue. Too bad it’s Japanese only at this point but it looks like a cool concept. The Tereshibai comes in the form of a remote (a little similar to a Wiimote) that just needs to be connected to a TV. Kids can then choose between 10 pre-installed fairy… Read More

  • Not iPhone: Konami sues Harmonix over music game patent infringements


    Flickr’d, a real rock band Konami has sued Harmonix, alleging that Rock Band infringes on several of its music game-related patents. Karaoke Revolution first came out in North America in 2003, several years before both Guitar Hero and Rock Band. Now Konami wants Harmonix to pay up. Apparently Harmonix hasn’t received the official complaint yet, so it hasn’t said anything in… Read More

  • Konami cancels all launch events for Metal Gear Solid 4 in Japan

    Amid rising concerns about the safety of attendees, Konami Japan called off all three launch events [JP] planned for their highly anticipated new game Metal Gear Solid 4. The announcement was published on the company web site today. A spokesperson told Japanese newspapers Konami cannot fully guarantee safety for the large number of participants expected. Konami Japan’s decision is… Read More

  • Google hearts the Konami code

    Even as Google grows bigger and bigger, its developers continue to slip little Easter eggs into their applications. It’s never anything huge – just little inside jokes which serve as a reminder that there are living, breathing people behind the otherwise faceless applications. As Blogoscoped points out, one of these people has infused a bit of gamer lore into Google Reader. Log… Read More

  • Video: Slew of Metal Gear Solid 4 videos, some exclusive

    http://www.gametrailers.com/remote_wrap.php?umid=223977 Apparently this is a spoiler video, so I’ll have to abstain from commenting on it. Watch at your own risk. The two videos I’ve pasted below are exclusive to MTV and I haven’t watched those either. Truth be told, I was never very interested in the MGS series. It’s inexplicable, really. Read More

  • CrunchArcade: The most in-depth MGS 4 feature you'll ever read

    Edge, the expensive yet professionally unmatched British gaming mag, calls Metal Gear Solid 4 “a bang of a finale, not a whimper.” High praise that should put to end any “but will the game be good?” speculation. Like last month’s expansive GTA IV preview (which I bought at Barnes and Noble last week, along with that 2600), Edge devotes several thousand… Read More

  • Rumor squished: Metal Gear Solid 4 not coming to 360, it's final


    The longtime whispers of MGS4 coming out on the 360 have been smushed by a Konami rep, who says that it is indeed a PS3 exclusive and there are no plans to develop a 360 version. People thought that even with epic sales it would be impossible for the team to break even, given the enormous development costs of this gaming juggernaut. Thus the rumors were born and propagated — perhaps… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Konami arcade game for $320 with code

    Is it just me or has Linens ‘n Things really been getting aggressive with gadgets and whatnot? I mean aggressive in a good way, too. Take this "full size" Konami arcade game, for instance. Why not forgo the car payment this month and pick this thing up instead? I put "full size" in quotes because the cabinet stands at just over five feet tall and the size of that… Read More

  • Rumor: Metal Gear Solid 4 for XBox 360

    PS3’s killer app might also become XBox 360’s killer app. XBox 360 is reporting that OXM says that MSG4 might come to the 360, but they’re not sure. MSG4 is probably going to be the defining game for the platform, the PS3’s Gears of War as it were. However, if it comes out on 360 later, it could hurt Sony’s bottom line and no one wants that. This is all rumor… Read More

  • Konami Characters And Their 1980s Counterparts

    This is quite possibly the most awesome set of comparisons ever. For years I’ve been saying that the guy from Contra looks like Arnold and sure enough, according to this Shamoozal article, he does. A bunch of characters from Konami games have been compared to their 1980s counterparts and boy are the results right on the money. Aside from Contra, you’ll also find comparisons for… Read More

  • Konami's Digital Life Lineup

    Digital Life is just around the corner, and for those of us who live and breathe video games, it’s a damn exciting time. Other than Wii remotes flying around and functioning Playstation 3 units(hopefully), you can expect game developers to bring some highly anticipated titles to the show floor. Right now, there is one game almost every gamer out there is waiting for: Konami’s… Read More
