    YESSS! are the screenshots for next-gen>

    • Nyxus

      Not sure which version these are taken from.

    • MrVux007

      how can you tell ??? you do know that they also made changes for current gen after pax 2012 ???

      • Nyxus

        I think he’s asking, not stating.

  • PrinceHeir

    I’m interested on how the old gen versions will stack up with the new gen.

    obviously the PS4 version will be 60FPS, but other than that i want to see how much of a difference it is.

    still disappointed the PS4 version is only digital and costs more.

    i hope they make a bundle version including the full game MGSV Phantom Pain

    • Nyxus

      Yeah, that’s what I’m hoping as well.

    • MrVux007

      it will be 10% difference MAX…just look at AC4 there is almost no difference at all…..thats why I’m getting both TPP and GZ on PS3….the onl the that bugs me now will the PS3 have MGO 3 ???

      • Nyxus

        The difference will mainly be in framerate, textures, lighting and shadows. Nothing big, probably.

  • Nekkedsnake

    after waiting for so long we finally get a release date! well it’s really a release period. Spring 2014 isn’t too exact but i’m sure we’ll all get a more specific date in time.

    on the whole next gen issue, while i really want a PS4 it’s not in the cards for me this year. its just as well because of budget concerns and i actually wanna wait till next holiday. perhaps Sony will give us better bundles and even a price drop. and more games will be released for it next year.

    another reason I’m happy this will be released on current gen is because i already have a backlog of PS3 games (not to mention 360, 3ds, and retro games-gamecube, pap, and even iPhone!). so i really don’t have a “good” reason to go next gen. plus current gen will get a Disc based version of GZ. while i buy and download digital games, i’m oldskool and want tangible discs to physically own. i enjoy the act of collecting.

    i already own every MGS game that’s been released 3 times over and added the Legacy Collection when it was released. I look forward to adding MGSV:GZ!

    • Nyxus

      I prefer physical as well, and have no idea why Konami made this decision.

      • Nekkedsnake

        this confused me as well. Wouldn’t Konami want to have two ways to have their product purchased? they’ve got more than enough money to manufacture disc based games. i’m guessing this is to bolster digital purchases on the PS4/X1 and make use of those 500gb hdds. tho considering file sizes, it won’t take long for 500gb be chipped away bit by bit. i think it’d just make much more sense from at least a corporate POV to sell both physical and digital. gamers like options.

        • Nyxus

          Exactly, MGS certainly is a high profile enough series to give it a physical release as well, especially given the price they’re asking for it.

          • solidmatt

            It’s about circumventing the resale market that physical games enable. Game companies perceive themselves as losing significant amounts of revenue from resale and the digital only game represents a solution to this problem from their perspective. This is something that has been reported on extensively. Konami is clearly pushing the digital version hard and making it obligatory where they can in an effort to avoid an MGS resale market.

          • Nyxus

            But I believe that according to European law, you have to be able to resell your digital content as well. So in that case, this solution wouldn’t do any good.

          • solidmatt

            Interesting, because what’s the difference between a new and a “used” digital copy in terms of practical value. Still, even if this is European law, it doesn’t change the situation in NA for example. Furthermore, are there established mechanisms for the resale of digital console games on par with what exists for physical ones? If not, that itself acts as an inhabiting factor against their resale.

          • Nyxus

            There is not, it’s just a law that forbids companies to take away our right to resell a product we’ve bought. In Europe, you have that right and you keep it, wether the product you bought is physical or digital. And it makes a lot of sense.

          • Nekkedsnake

            I suppose in my situation I only buy a digital copy without any intention of reselling it. Then again, rarely do I sell any of my physical copies either. As a collector I like keeping every game that I’ve bought, whether digital or tangible. It’s only been in the past, say 10 years ago, where I sold my used consoles: game gear, NES/SNES and older games, to make room for other things. So the ability to resell Used items will always be a consumer friendly technique that would be of value to us, the Consumer.

            Companies have only recently started feeling that they’re losing money ONLY due to the rise in digital distribution. Years ago when there was no such thing as digital distribution of games/music/movies/shows, we didn’t hear any companies complaining. Devs still produced a ton of quality games.

            Like I said, resale value is for the consumer’s benefit, whether selling OR especially buying used games. I am one of those gamers that has bought New/Release Day games as well as Used games. I gotta say, as a new parent with a tight budget, purchasing Used games is a godsend. I wouldn’t be able to enjoy half the games that I own without them being resold at a cheaper price point. GameStop, and other local brick & mortar stores who sell Used games are something everyone needs. Digital distribution is, while very convenient for all of us consumers, is really a model beneficial for the companies/game devs on a financial level.

            The thing that I really foresee is that Digital and Tangible will coexist for a long time because, as I’ve said before, everyone likes Options.

    Nyxus, is this the offcial ground zeroes logo? Thanks!

    • Nyxus

      Yes, it is.

    Spring 2014 likely means March. One site has listed it as March 8:

    Much earlier, GZ was reported to be coming out by the end of the 2014 fiscal year via an insider tweet:

    The 2014 fiscal year ends in March 2014. This kills me though, because that is when Dark Souls II comes out. I don’t like to divide my attention between these games.
