METAL GEAR MONDAYS! The Mysterious Trailers …

75 0

Hi all!

In case you missed it, a mysterious Metal Gear trailer appeared online last week, recalling a famous location from MGS1. If you haven’t seen it yet, just direct your attention to the video below …

Of course, we can’t go into detail about what it actually means, nor do we want to spoil anything for you here – but, please, don’t let us hold back your imaginations …

Likewise, another mysterious trailer was released on April Fool’s day, in “disguise” …

As many now know, this is in fact a trailer for MGS4, and reveals some of the incredible first few gameplay moments of the MGS4 itself.

If you had missed either, we thought we’d point them out here, as they both show off some substantial teasers for what awaits.

Otherwise, we are working on some surprises in store for later on in the week, as we come to the close of the MGO Beta period. Please stay tuned here on the PSB!

Cheers!

  • cant wait for this game

  • You know what those Gekkoes sound like? Cows!!! How do I know? I work on a frikken dairy farm!

  • yeah,the gekkos are on of the best mecha design i ever saw.
    They say moo ! and are really scary.
    amazing, props to Shinkawa san

  • Great teasers, enjoying the Beta and can’t wait for the game. I have played all MGS games and am looking forward to the next chapter.

  • Does that mean that we can replay MGS1 levels when Snake gets a flashback in MGS4?! :D

  • @ Seribus..

    If participating in the MGO Beta unlocks anything in MGS4 or MGO, the savefile should be enough.

  • also, I sure hope that you don’t play MGS1 levels during flashback sequences. That would be incredibly stupid. A fully remade game would be awesome. But I don’t want to play just parts of the game with updated graphics. Plus I already know the story. So either they’re using flashbacks to retcon, or MGS4 sucks. I mean, There’s no excuse for putting in parts of a previous game. To the people who are happy… how much of your new game would you be happy with being flashbacks you’ve already played? 5%? 25%? By a continuation of that logic, it’d be sweet if this game was flash backs from all metal gears, and 2 new hours of gameplay. Hell, i’d have rather them cut out flashbacks and put in the japanese voiceovers. Retconning is not okay. And neither is making me play something i’ve already played before because a) you were too lazy to think of new content
    or
    b)you’re recapping story for people who aren’t really fans.

    of course, this is all assuming they’re flashbacks.

  • I read on another forum that MGO will be blocked to those who import the game. I live in Japan and have a Japanese PS3 but have pre-ordered the US version since I am a native English speaker. Can Konami confirm if this is true or not? If it is I will cancel my pre-order.

    Playable flashbacks = Unique

    I am completely sure you are right, that the fact that they put in playable flashbacks means that MGS 4 sucks. /end sarcasm

    @ Sony & Konami

    Every time you upload a teaser onto the net, riots breakout. I hope you’re happy. At this point, I’d choke someone for more information!

  • is the metal gears blue tooth headset real or not?

  • I cannot believe you’re doing this to us… Oooohhhh the wait was horrible enough already, now you throw all this at us, you’ve had my money from the beginning, but it looks more and more like the biggest game of the summer, possibly ever. *sigh*

    Oh and thanks for posting these videos, it’s not much of an actual update, but I’m glad you’re bringing these things to our attention. Some people definitely haven’t seen this stuff yet.

    much love for MGS!!

  • @60

    Yes, the headset is real. Pre-ordered mine when I picked up GTA IV. Here is the link:

  • I went to a gamestop yesterday and the clerk said that there will only be 2 gunmetal grey mgs4/ps3 bundles per gamestop. It will be a very very LIMITED run of this bundle. The clerk also said that some gamestops won’t get the gunmetal grey bundle at all. And no, you can not preorder it.

  • @ asnmsek

    As much as I want to believe that, I call it BS just cus gamestop employees never know what the heck they’re talking about.

    Also, I highly doubt that a clerk would even have that much info on the anticipated bundle.

  • the clerk could have been wrong. i asked her few times, over and over. ‘are you sure?’ but i may have been the Nth metal gear fanboy hassling said clerk. either way, i’ll be the first one at gamestop before it opens. thank god for sick leave.

  • man, this update is so not cool like the last one…

  • crap…no pre order for GUNMETAL GREY PS3 system. I work for London Drugs and my friend at Sony Store. 1st come 1st serve. Sooooo…set your tent, sleeping bagand get your ass in line to get your GREY PS3. shhhh…i know 1 Boutique only gettin’ 3 GUNMETAL GREY system.

  • Imagine MGS1 as bonus material like metal gear 1 n 2 on the subsistence disk.
    that would be awesome!

  • What a lame metal gear monday. How about some info on the LE PS3??

    MGO was just dumb. It has potential, but all of playstation needs to get outta the “1997 mindframe”.

    In other news, GTA IV is the “game of the year”, nuff said….too bad, so sad. And to think, I thought MGS4 was the top runner…how WRONG I was!

  • MGS remade for PS3–I’m with it! Who’s with me?!?!

    You act as if only MGS fans should be allowed to play this game, not anyone new, or perhaps too young that may never have played any of the previous installments until now.

    The game has already been announced to use flashbacks to provide backstory, so 99% of your harsh criticisms are already out the window.
    By showing that the flashbacks are PLAYABLE, you now interact with the story, not just watch it. And many fans in the past have complained of long cut sequences (myself however, I’m a filmmaker, so I can appreciate the need for longer conversations and scenes) so it’s a great happy medium for all fans– to PLAY the “story scenes”.

    They’re not retconning anything– in fact, if they leave the story intact, then awesome–updatated graphics all around. It’ll bring new people up to speed, and perhaps go out to buy the Essential MGS pack.

    If though Kojima-san uses these flashbacks as a way to tell alternative stories (this IS a dream after all), the possibilities are endless– including the already-seen Rex Vs. Ray fight in one of the previous trailers. Is that fight real? Or merely a dream?

    I guess you’ll just have to wait until June 12 to find out.

  • I dont know about all of you guys but i already have my gunmetal ps3 on reserved.you just have to keep looking where they might be able to reserve one for you in advance.

  • Can’t wait.

  • Wees, could you let me know where you reserved your gunmetal PS3? My wife and I have called everywhere trying to preorder or reserve the bundle to no avail. Thanks

  • I am really just waiting for bundle preorder/retailer information ;-;
