Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 Exclusive - Page 3

post #21 of 62
msg4 will definately move systems off shelves. Your one person that is not a fan of the game but there are alot. I bet most playstation owners have played the mgs series(obviously i dont have proof). I also bet there are alot of people who are holding off till games such as mgs4 and ff13 come out. Yes it wont sell as much as halo or mario but it will definately move systems off shelves. And by the way the games are awsome except 3 i didnt enjoy that one.

are you kidding, i know 3 people including myself that are purchasing a PS3 just for GMS4

This is the main attraction for Sony.

And personally i hate Halo, the story line is weak, and it is repetitive. It baffles me as to why it got so popular.

But all that aside, the MGS series has and will continue to bring in tons of money for Sony. And how would it be easier to go multi platform. All 3 systems are totally different in their current generation.

They use different formats (before PS 2and Xbox both used DVD) this isn't the case no more. It would take a whole lot more coding. Plus Blu Ray can hold more than DVD so they will take advantage of that. I would be amazed if they could code it onto DVD and then keep ALL the content that a PS3 would give.

I'll be honest with you, if I was a developer I would go multiplatform. It's alot easier to sale games across 20+ million consoles as opposed to 3 million. Metal Gear series has not even been a system saler, and never will be, nothing like Super Mario, or Halo, or even Gears of War. Let's face it, regardless if you like those games or not, those three are system sellers.
Just because you don't like MGS doesnt mean that no one else does. I personally have never even played a MGS game, so it's no matter to me. But I know that it's a very popular game that is likely to generate sales of the PS3. Is it on the same level as Mario, Zelda, or Halo? No, obviously not, but that doesn't mean people don't look forward to it. I think it's unfair to compare it to Mario - I mean, he's been around almost as long as I am old. He's more recognizable that Mickey Mouse. As far as GoW goes...I disagree. Only current 360 owners really know of this game. I doubt that many people are going to go out and buy a 360 just for that. Personally, I think it's the best looking crap fest I've ever bought. But that's just me.

You have got to accept that ALL console makers have exclusives. Thats how they generate sales for their consoles. And that is how they rake in the cash.

MGS has been a play station exclusive since MGS1. Why would you complain that it is an exclusive now? I don't get it.........this was expected, how could you possibly be disappointed.
Playstation exclusive till MGS2 was released on XBOX..I will never know why.

Gears of War, hands down is a system seller. There are practically just as many owners of Gears of War as their are PS3 owners in total. To really determine if MGS4 is going to be a system seller, the thing needs to release or atleast release some game play skits. All that is being done is cinematography cgi thats being fed down the necks of the truly gullible. I mean is this a video game or is this another one of those blu-ray movies you guys bought your game console for?

Mgs4 will def sell systems. How many is to be determined i think it will move quite a bit. FF13 i think will move more. As for gears of war being a system seller i cant see it being on the same lvl as metal gear. YEs it was fun but alot of people complained about how short it was and doing the smae thing over and over. I cant see many people to run out to by a system for a game you can beat in a day if you want to. Now i may be wrong but as none of has proof dont yell at me please lol.
I still think the first metal gear had one of the coolest things ive seen in a video game. Having to put the controler in the second slot to fight the mantis guy was brilliant. And it is without a doubt this game will be great looking. And i thought the e3 trailer was gamplay i have not seen it but i thought thats what i read.

Two dumb questions:
1) Is the "cell" processor everyone keeps referring to the nickname for the PS3 CPU?
2) Why does there have to be a limitation with the XBox 360 DVD?

In regards to question number 2, the XBox 360 drive is dual layer so a single DVD can store over 8GB, not just 4.7GB. Perhaps they don't use dual layer because of decreased read speeds? Even if it weren't dual layer, couldn't the games just come on multiple DVDs?
