    Snake Camouflage: Japan Gets Exclusive Metal Gear Solid 3DS System

    Resident Evil isn’t the only big video game series that made the news in Nippon today: Konami announced [JP] the so-called METAL GEAR SOLID SNAKE EATER 3D PREMIUM PACKAGE for the Japanese market. The set includes a special 3DS system, a copy of Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D, and two clear files in MGS design. Here’s the so-called “Snake Camouflage”-style… Read More

  • Metal Gear Solid 4 On Xbox 360? What In The Nine Hecks Is Olivia Munn Talking About?

    Headline swerve! Can we all cut Olivia Munn a little slack? Yes, it would appear that she misspoke at the Spike TV Video Game Awards, saying that she had been playing Metal Gear Solid 4 on Xbox 360, but it’s not like the show was any good to begin with. It was, from top to bottom, pointless. Read More

  • Video: Sony announces Walkman W series (with special Metal Gear Solid version)

    Sony in Japan once again updated their Walkman lineup today, this time with the Walkman W series. The new NWD-W253 [JP] has two things going for it: first, it’s waterproof (IPX5), which means you can use the “Wearable Walkman” in the rain or even “wash” it under water. And second, Sony will roll out a special Metal Gear Solid – Peace Walker version. Read More

  • 40/40: Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker gets perfect Famitsu rating

    I was able to play Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, the new MGS title for Sony’s PSP, at last year’s Tokyo Game Show (where the game was playable for the first time). I thought it was pretty good back then, and now the Famitsu, Japan’s (and probably the world’s) best selling video game magazine reviewed the title and gave it a perfect total score of 40. Read More

  • Video: Metal Gear Solid Arcade 3D in action

    We’ve covered Metal Gear Solid 3D (whose first playable version was announced by Konami last week) twice so far, and now it’s time to look at the game in more detail. Konami is still in the middle of optimizing the gameplay (which is based on Metal Gear Online) and hasn’t fixed a release date yet. In the video embedded below, you can see a model holding a gun in her hands… Read More

  • Metal Gear Arcade gets head-tracking VR goggles

    It’s been a long time since I’ve been in a modern arcade. Since I suck at Street Fighter 4 and the like, and most of the games are huge money sinks, I’ve been avoiding them for years now. But I might have to drop by and check out Metal Gear Arcade when it drops, because these VR goggles look totally awesome. Tactical espionage combat in stereoscopic 3D? Yes please. Read More

  • Metal Gear Arcade 3D: Konami announces first playable version

    Konami’s hit game series Metal Gear Solid is finally getting an arcade treatment: Aptly named “Metal Gear Solid Arcade 3D”, the game was first shown during the E3 last year in the US. Konami has now announced [JP] it will bring the game cabinet to the AOU 2010 expo tomorrow in its full glory. And, for the first time, the title will be playable. Read More

  • Tokyo Game Show: Metal Gear Solid – Peace Walker (2 videos)

    One of the biggest titles of this year’s Tokyo Game Show is certainly Metal Gear Solid – Peace Walker for the PSP. And it’s all about multiplayer. I was able to play the game with a friend (in co-op mode) for about 15 minutes and it completely rocked (the game was playable for the first time). In fact, up to four players could play at the same time (and some TGS guests did). Read More

  • MGS4 engine tweaked for MGS: Rising because the Xbox 360 can't handle it

    Kojima made it very clear from day 1 that the Xbox 360 could not handle the MGS4 engine. When it was announced at E3 that the MGS franchise would be coming to the Microsoft platform I wondered if Kojima had made progress in making the MGS4 engine compatible with the Xbox 360, but that appears to be untrue. During the latest Kojima podcast, Sean Eyestone stated that Kojima has reworked the… Read More

  • 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

  • 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

  • Get ready for Metal Gear Solid Touch for the iPhone

    Konami has just eliminated any remaining doubts about the iPhone being a proper video game platform. It just announced that it will release Metal Gear Solid Touch in March, 2009. Available for both the iPhone and iPod touch, the game follows the story laid down by MGS 4, playable over an initial eight levels. More levels will be added after the game’s release. Also, unrelated to Metal… 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

While I’m sure this is the most striking game in all the world – both graphically and logistically – I’m hard pressed to say it warrants picking up the PS3 just to play it. Fanboys attack now&hellip… Read More

  • Wal-Mart sells new ‘Metal Gear Solid’ game early

    A big, shiny gold star goes to Konami for being cool about Metal Gear Solid 4 being sold before the June 12th release date. According to PlayStation Universe, “This week, a couple of Wal-Marts were reported to have sold the Metal Gear Solid 80GB PS3 bundles up to a week before the scheduled release of the title on June 12.” Konami’s response to this happy little accident… 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

  • CLAIM: Metal Gear Solid 4 will come out for the Xbox 360 says Konami rep

    Metal Gear Solid 4 will come out for the Xbox 360 12-14 months after its PS3 debut (which is currently scheduled for Q2 of this year). That’s a bold claim from the team at XboxFamily, but they’re swearing by their sources on this one. We’ll see. A Konami representative allegedly told the site that the game has been in production for the 360 since early 2007. For its part… Read More
