New Japanese trailer for Metal Gear Solid 4 revealing more plot elements within the game. Watch it to the end to see Snake pushing a gun into his mouth implying suicide. Is this the end of Snake and the MSG franchise? Metal Gear Solid 4 is an exclusive game for the PS3.
MSG4 creator, Hideo Kojima is not too impress with his latest game due to graphics. Now isn’t that a tad negative advertising since the game is coming out soon. On the latest Edge Magazine, Kojima quoted, “Game-wise, it’s pretty close to the original vision: you sneak into the battlefield and can choose whether to do a stealth game or interfere with the battle more directly. But the graphic, side things like motion-blending and the size of the map, totally was not accomplished to my original vision – to my satisfaction.”. He seems to be a bit harsh on his own work.
On the other hand, MSG Online Beta users are given partial digit UPVC on the pre-order DVD insert. If you find this, contact Konami support.
