  • FOX

    Nothing new. Not edited by Kojima. Pass

    • Fredy Carius

      a NOT Hideo Kojima trailer =p

  • Doktor_C_H_A_O_S

    The wait is pure torture at this point! I’m trying hard not to think about this game, when im not in here ofcourse, and then when playing Worms with some friends on my PS4, a worm on one of the teams is named “Phantom”. Why Kojima and Team17? WHY YOU DOING THIS TO ME!?

  • Bartolomeo OP Snake Eater

    awesome!

  • Gatsu

    This trailer give me much memories since 1998 MGS1… I never forget that moment when played my first Metal Gear.

    And to think the last epic part of Big Boss’ journey is almost here ;O…ultra excited to experience all the glorious stuff TPP has for us.
    Only 12 days left… I’m not dreaming, am I 😀 ? Soon get to play >:O !?

    Btw hopefully we’ll see the other trailer soon, Big Boss look so amazing <3…

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      Those graphics !

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      I think he’s looking at mg st 84

      • Gatsu

        I was sort of thinking that too. He’s looking upwards and those rocks behind him could be the same ones, that are in the area when Big Boss run away from it in Elegia trailer.

        But then again…lots of rocky terrain in Afghanistan, so who knows :).

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          But look at that expression!

  • Ralexion

    Must… keep… waiting… almost… there…

  • Amrit

    100% on the ball. THIS is the biggest question of the entire series for me: just WHAT pushes Big Boss over the edge?

  • MichaelPayneV

    Hideo said that the Next Trailer will be the Harmony of Metal Gear, not just Solid, so i expect footage from MG1 and 2 as well!

  • Andrea Feletti

    3 years of waiting! HERE WE ARE!!!

    • Gatsu

      I CAN’T BELIEVE WE MADE IT THIS FAR ;D !
      I’ve never waited something so much in my life, lol.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Well, i did, 7 years for Max Payne 3!

        • Gatsu

          Wow o_O! Hmm, well I can’t celebrate too much yet. 2 more work days left and anything can happen, lol.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Maybe we get the Trailer 1 week before, 23!

    • MichaelPayneV

      W.R.O.H. = We Ready Out Here!

    • SilverSaladin

      3 years? Been waiting for this game since MGS4 (7 years ) . And to think that it’s just less than 2 weeks away from being released .

      • Gatsu

        Well…3 years since we saw the reveal trailers :).

  • Gatsu
    • J_muse72

      I have been playing a lot of Gmod recently, I have both of those mods XD

    • Mr. Sir Shpee

      I’d watch that.

  • MichaelPayneV
    • Gatsu

      Oh god… XD.
      Best game cover ever. 😉

    • H’m

      id like to say i find this is funny but keifer in mgs still makes me cringe, i dont think il ever fully accept this grrrrrrrr…
      🙂

      • Gatsu

        Hope his voice becomes more familiar to everyone with TPP :).

        I can already imagine some reviews give -points for not having David Hayter, like with GZ lol. Well can’t really blame them though as David’s been with MGS such a long time.

        • MichaelPayneV

          No offense, but to me Kiefer is the Superior Big Boss, to me he sounds a lot closer to Solidus than Solid, exactly how he should, and Kiefer’s voice is also the middle ground between David Hayter and Richard Doyle!

          • Gatsu

            I personally think his voice is excellent for Big Boss :).

          • MichaelPayneV

            Exactly.

          • Connor Nelson

            If they score the game lower, not because the quality of the voice acting, but because of the voice actor, they don’t have much journalistic integrity.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Don’t worry, with Konami at helm, i’m sure soem thigns will be fukked up in TPP, i’m afraid that you won’t need to nitpick TPP in order to find its flaws!

          • Mr. Sir Shpee

            7.8/10 too much Kiefer

          • Robin Besch

            this!

          • Kol Leqejza

            your best comment so far!

          • Tong Ninja

            He does sound sort of similar to John Cygan’s Solidus Snake! haha

          • Mr. Sir Shpee

            I like Hayter as Snake and all and I felt he was a good Big Boss in Peace Walker, but I prefer Kiefer as Big Boss. Just… wow.

        • H’m

          For any real mgs not to think hayter should be in any mgs is just plain wrong but… thats ok coz were all intitled to our own opinions but i will say for hayter to be dropped ( and i do hope this is kojimas final troll ) for what could be the final game is just plain wrong on kojimas part WRONG!… kojima might be the creator of mgs but hayter is the reason i loved the charactor of snake/bigboss and kojima should never have forgotton that 🙂

          • MichaelPayneV

            I don’t think is Kojiam to blame here, i have a feeling that is Konami who wanted Kiefer, but Hideo took the blames like a Boss, a Big Boss i would say.

          • H’m

            and what about that motion capture bull-hicky?
            and kojima could have at least shown hayter some for of respect, farewelled properly even would have been nice, people hate konami at the mo for the whole kojima thing but no one cares how hayter was treated like he was nothing, pretty sad bud.. pretty sad

          • MichaelPayneV

            He did show respect, if he didn’t , he wouldn’t have said that he wanted something different!

          • H’m

            not cool…
            moving on as we will probably argue this past sept 1st 🙂

          • glitchbomb

            LOL

          • Gatsu

            Hmm well Hayter is a strong reason for me too :). Games can be amazing even without voice actors, which I’ve learned with Final Fantasy series. But MGS always have superb voice actors that bring more life to the characters.

            I just happen to like Kiefer too also and I think is the reason I am able to accept his voice easier :D.

          • glitchbomb

            Wait…You think Hayter is in TPP? Are you still holding out that Hayter is going to voice bb?

      • Connor Nelson

        Honestly David hayters voice never made me feel anything. It’s just such a gruff stressed voice and I think he has trouble conveying deeper emotions because of it, Keifer is a seasoned actor and I think it really shows, but it’s all preference

        • H’m

          that cool..entitled to your own opinion but at least it was a voice, keifers just keifer and it ads nothing .. just whispering loudly

      • Tong Ninja

        Don’t worry, I know a few people who are still uncomfortable with this decision. haha
        Obviously this casting decision is beyond everyone’s control except Kojima and Konami. There’s nothing we can do about it. Yes, the way they replaced him was not right. That would be Konami’s fault (or maybe Kojima) for not letting him know beforehand. But Hayter will be fine …. he’s not out of work or anything. His primary job is a screenwriter! haha

        The game comes out soon! 😀 I like Hayter as well!
        I’m liking what I hear from Kiefer’s performance so far, but I need to play through the game until I make a final judgement.

        All I can say is forget the way the casting was done and reserve judgement on Kiefer’s performance until you’ve completed TPP. I have high expectations for Kiefer to do Big Boss justice. From what I’ve seen so far, Kiefer has taken Big Boss to a dark level …. 🙂 which will hopefully transition into Richard Doyle’s Big Boss in MGS4.

        If you still don’t like his performance, then that’s fine because you completed the game and listened to his performance! 😀
        For your case, it might take more time for you to get used to the new voice …

  • H’m

    Feel like trolling, or just being honest.. click this 🙂 lol, notice anything missing

    http://mobilesurvey.blicx.com/?

    • Gatsu

      -__- what the hell…where’s my MG.

      • H’m

        EXACTLY!!! …

    • Robin Besch

      bad joke?

    • Connor Nelson

      That’s colder than ice… Maybe this means they are giving the series to kojima as a goodbye gift? (Crickets)

    • Venom_Sina

      Where is METAL GEAR and PES?!

  • H’m

    and this is why kojima should head over to somy once done

    • MichaelPayneV

      No, he is better Indie, Kickstaretd and Steam Greenlight is all he needs, no need to become once again limited by Publishers and Platforms!

      • Connor Nelson

        Limited by publishers? Mgs4 took 60 million to make, TPP took 80 million. He doesn’t have the engine he helped build or the rights to any of his IPs. He wasn’t limited by publishers and platforms, he was enabled.

        • MichaelPayneV

          If you think that Hideo was happy working on the same franchise for over 25 years, you have a problem!

          Hideo doesn’t need a Huge Budget to make something spectacular. Take Peace Walker for example!

          • Connor Nelson

            Happyness and productivity are irrelevent, happiness doesn’t pay for production or give you near limitless rescources, your forgetting he was the company’s president a few years ago.

            Idk how much PW took to make

          • MrVux007

            he wasn’t limited by publishers or platforms btw and whether or not he was happy,we cant possibly know…all i know is when MGS involved,i always see him enthusiastic and happy,and are your really comparing a budget of an PSP game towards big AAA console/PC games budget? handheld games will always be cheaper,cuz not much budget or time is needed for development

          • MichaelPayneV

            So what you are saying is that Hideo needs a Big Budget to make something great?

          • Connor Nelson

            Basicly Ya. Hell im a metal gear fan before a kojima fan.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well, here is where i disagree, i’m a Hideo fan, then an MGS Fan, i Respect and look up to Hideo as inpiration, but i only enjoy Metal Gear for what it is!

            I just think that Hideo now after years of Experience can do something better than Metal Gear, and Silent Hills may just have been that!

          • Connor Nelson

            I don’t believe you, good day.

          • MichaelPayneV

            And i don’t care if you believe me or not, i will not try to convice you anything, believe what you will, i never had choice, but you, now, aaaare freeeeee, do as you will!

          • Gatsu

            Hey brother Vux =)! Good to see you ;).
            I’ve missed your and Michael’s arguments, lol.

          • MichaelPayneV
          • Gatsu

            Haha XD …

          • MrVux007

            lol

          • solideater

            Is that a Looney Toons Special Episode 🙂 … I think Snake took a wrong turn

  • Gatsu

    TPP hospital escape’s theme song :)…

    Just a few days more and Snake is back!

    • MichaelPayneV

      And this for the Psycho Mantis Chase!
      https://youtu.be/2ywnTKg3OtY

      • Gatsu

        Yeah :D!

      • VenomSnake1974

        I’d rather this 🙂

        • MichaelPayneV

          Much better indeed!

  • Le Guy who drowned quiet

    Who watches daredevil here ?just askin?

    • Gawd

      The directorial aspects of that show is sublime….. And I don’t say convoluted compliments lightly! Lol it was a random Netflix pickup for me and I loved it

    • MichaelPayneV

      Only watched the Pilot, so please, no Spoilers!

    • Robin Besch

      after ben affleck i wasnt hoping for much to say the least…
      but ich blew me away!

    • glitchbomb

      I started but only got to ep4 before I got distracted by gaming. I really liked it. Even more excited to hear about The Punisher in next season.

  • Gawd

    Still on MGS4 and I’m not going to rush to finish but after it should I watch a play through of portable ops … Is it essential to the story? I really want to get Peace Walker because I notice you guys reference it the most and feel out of the loop…

    • Connor Nelson

      Ground zeroes directly follows the events of peace walker, portable ops isn’t cannon.

    • Ol’ Jack Burton

      Portable Ops is almost completely ignored now (Peace Walker effectively replaces it for the most part, for better or worse. Kojima didn’t direct MPO, he “only” wrote its skeleton story and produced it due to the KojiPro A-Team focusing on MGS4 at the time), but it’s absolutely worth watching a playthrough at the very least if you’re a fan of Ashley Wood’s art style. Very good soundtrack, too.

    • No Place For Hayter

      I wouldn’t for two reasons.

      1) Kojima does not like it or consider it about his his MGS series, and thus he will overwrite and contradict the story at will, making knowing the story of PO just confusing and annoying in the overall lore.

      2) The story itself for PO is IMHO horrible, it is cheap, VERY cheap, and is full of characters that don’t belong but are there because it is a MGS game and they could shoehorn them in. I hate the story of PO, and no I don’t really remember enough of it to argue why, I decided to remember as little as possible.

      That being said the played the hell out of the game it is was fun, but PW is better for gameplay in every way making PO kind of useless even in gameplay terms, why play a hugely downgraded version of PW?

      Long story short, skip PO and go straight to PW.

  • moto hellogoto

    These games are the reason I’m going to buy a ps3. Well this and ninja gaiden sigma.

    • MichaelPayneV

      A PS3? Why? What other gaming devices you have?

      • Gatsu

        I’d guess, because they’re all easily available on PS3.

        • Connor Nelson

          Also free online, check out the gamefaq PS3 mgsv board, really cool place

          • MichaelPayneV

            “Also free online” so does Steam!

          • MrVux007

            somehow i knew you were gonna point that out lol 😀

          • MichaelPayneV
          • Gatsu

            LOL, which one is Skull Face ;).

          • MichaelPayneV

            Me, as i’m being seen here as The Villain, when i’m no t really one, just like Skull Face!

          • No Place For Hayter

            Don’t worry about us, we know you are the walking advertisement for TPP on PC. Of course that isn’t a bad thing, lol.

          • MichaelPayneV

            I’m doing this for Kojima, as he is the one who made the PC version a reality, while Konami didn’t

          • Connor Nelson

            Well if he is buying a PS3 I doubt he is a pc gamer

          • MrVux007

            hey not neccesarly….i know plenty of people(myself included) who bought a gaming PC AND a ps3 back in the day…so yea 😀

          • Connor Nelson

            True, but if you have a pc that can run TPP then why buy a PS3 for TPP? It’s all in the context brotha! And I also own a PS3, cheap end gaming PC, and ps4

          • MichaelPayneV

            I couldn’t have said it better myself!

          • MrVux007

            cuz of preference,i could almost max out MGSVTPP by those requirements,but my general preference is for PS4(would have played it on PS3 instead if i didnt preordered it for PS4)…and most importantly most of my colleagues and friends will play it on PS3/PS4

          • No Place For Hayter

            Some people prefer to play it on a console, some poeple also have a personal attachment to playing MGS on a Sony console. In other words, personal reasons 🙂

      • moto hellogoto

        I’m a pc gamer.

        • MichaelPayneV

          Then get TPP on PC!

          • moto hellogoto

            already got it bud 😀

          • MichaelPayneV

            Nice.

    • MrVux007

      both are nice choices 😉

  • MrVux007

    Yep,Playstation will always have a special place for MGS series,the platform where the game truly started to kick into the gaming world…and as such, many fans will remember that sweet Playstation+MGS combo for years to come…heres to Sony,Kojima Productions and most importantly MGS! Thank you for 17 fantastic years! Cheers

        Oh and its good to be back 😉

        may the drinking gifs…..COMMENCE!

        • Gatsu

          Good to have you back hehe ;), btw you better avoid some other websites too. Some spoilers been flying around of TPP story I think. I only check MGI and N4G now :P.

          Getting Kojima’s last trailer soon.

          • MrVux007

            let me guess……there was a leak ? -_-

          • Gatsu

            Lots of fake leaks and some fake early copies etc… But some real leaks started appearing I think and some countries get the game way early, stay safe :).

          • MrVux007

            im guessing they will have “early” release in UAE as usual….

        • MichaelPayneV
          • MrVux007

            loved that fkn movie….wish they made a sequel tho

          • No Place For Hayter

            Great, after all these, I’m thirsty now.

          • MichaelPayneV

            I think i’ll get a beer now!

          • Chriss Kama

            Here’s to you MGS and Playstation, you have brought happiness into our lives for 17 glorious years, especially mine. Thank you. I could never envision the MGS series on another console except this one.

    • MichaelPayneV

      So to you this franchise only matters since MGS1, do MG1 and 2 not count, do the games that invented Stealth not cound to you?

      Anywya, cheers!

      • MrVux007

        quite honestly,as far as the actual story(or lack of it in MG1 and Mg2) goes…yea they dont count to me 😀 and i wouldnt say MG1 and MG2 invented stealth genre,since MGS1 is still claimed to be that 😉

        • Connor Nelson

          Pac man is the first stealth game.

          • MrVux007

            hahahhahaahahahah

      • Gatsu

        I think Michael you misunderstand, for most of us MGS1 was the beginning as it was for me.
        Ofc MG 1 and 2 matter, but it was way later when I actually really played them.

        Metal Gear didn’t invent stealth, but it defined it a lot imo.

        • Chriss Kama

          Preach.

      • Chem

        MG didn’t invented stealth, redefined and improve the genre, off course that without MG the stealth action had not been what it is today.

      • glitchbomb

        Hmmm. Based on his statement I dont think he completely disregards mg1 & 2. Its just like he said, mgs is tied to the playstation because it is “The platform where the game truly started to kick into the gaming world”. I would wager many people agree.

    • Mr. Sir Shpee

      That was great, but I feel the need to point out that Metal Gear originated on MSX PCs. MGS did originate on PSOne, though, so you are indeed correct in that sense.

      • MrVux007

        no probs

        • Mr. Sir Shpee

          Yeah, I just typed it without thinking and didn’t read close enough. Either way, I’m just happy MGSV is multiplat and some people like me on PC will get to play their first full MGS game no matter what platform you own (except Wii U, sadly).

  • Shalashaska

    Oh my god guys.. i cant believe my luck and how bad its been this here.. I just get home today, put in ground zeroes and my Xbox 360 isnt working.. I panic, take it for a fix and just 5 minutes ago, i get news from the guy that my xbox 360 cant be fixed because all the main chips like exploded/burnt out inside.. there is no way to fix such a thing…

    12 days from release and now Im stuck with no bloody way to play this game and i have no cash to get a new console for atleast another 5-6 months… fuck man .. so sad i feel like crying now :'(

    • Connor Nelson

      Damn, fuck Xbox for that same reason, screwed me out of mass effect 2. You should check out local pawn shops for some barebones units.

      • Shalashaska

        Im looking but where i live, there aint no pawn shops in the whole country … I’m looking at a few second hand but then again..none are in my limit.. i just spent every penny i had for my grand dads surgery :/

        • Connor Nelson

          I wish I could be of help :/

          • Shalashaska

            thanks buddy.. just been an unlucky year :/

        • H’m

          jeeesus dude…

          • Shalashaska

            haha yea.. jesus.. god.. i need a miracle 😛

          • H’m

            what country do you live in, im sure everyone here could tryn help track something down

    • MichaelPayneV

      What other platforms do you have outside X360?

      • Shalashaska

        None and thats why its so sad 🙁

        • MichaelPayneV

          Not even a PC?

          • Shalashaska

            my pc has a built in mother board ..that was built in 2004-2005.. no possible way i can upgrade this for MGS 5 :/

          • MichaelPayneV

            O.K. then why didn’t you got a new one over the last 10 years?

          • Connor Nelson

            Money isn’t cheap

          • Shalashaska

            lol because i didnt think it was necessary 😛 lol dude if i had extra cash i probably would have 😛

          • MichaelPayneV

            Yeah, it sucks, i feel you bro.

            Anyway, i think now that your Xbox is broken, you should instead invest in a PC then a Next-Gen Console, Yes, it will take a little more time to make money for a PC than a PS4, but in the long run it will save you a lot of money, as on PC you won’t need to pay a mounthly subcription to in order to play online, adn you will basically have a better Multimedia device!

            If there is 1 thing i have about Console fan-boys (If it doesn’t apply, let it fly) is the missconception that PC Gaming is expensive, but that is all BS, Console Gaming is a lot more expensive on the long run, the PS Plus and Xbox Live alone make it expensive, so don’t listen to this BS!

            Now you do what you want, buy a PS4 if you want, just think it trought before you take the decision!

            dude … dont mean to sound like a dick but dont start that fanboy crap here!

          • MichaelPayneV

          • H’m

            Your tone throughout these comments had already answered the Q for me, but cheers anyway..

          • Shalashaska

            lets be honest though.. gaming is so much better with a hard core Pc.. one of my friends got this BEAST of pc but he moved to USA… man his pc and that experiences.. was just wow.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Elaborate please!

          • Danny Patten

            Guys chill. We’re all buddies here. The way you wrote it sounded kind of angry. That’s all what he was referring to. But it is not worth arguing about it. So hug it out.

          • H’m

            np 🙂

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well, that’s because i am a little angry on the missleading done by some people, and because i’m a Gamer witth attitude, Straight Outta Gaming!

          • H’m

            i have Q as your a pc guy, . ( n no im not being a smartass )
            iv already pre-ordered the ps4 version but how would my pc do
            for future refs when i probably buy it again on a steam sale

            i7 4790
            gtx 770 x2

          • solideater

            Hopefully you would be able to play on 4K. But if you have win 10 forget it, Nvidia has released pathetic drivers for that

          • H’m

            i just have normal generic monitors, and i dont want to go to w10, dont like the tablet kinda layout

          • solideater

            Don’t worry it will run fine 1080p 60fps. Hopefully I can run on 4k. I have same specs as your computer besides Cpu= 4790k and GPU = 980TI x2

          • H’m

            two 980s… dang!

          • MichaelPayneV

            You will be able to max this game out.

          • No Place For Hayter

            “Well, that’s because i am a little angry on the missleading done by some
            people, and because i’m a Gamer witth attitude, Straight Outta Gaming!”

            As long as one understands oneself, lol.

          • MichaelPayneV

            dude…i don’t want to start anything, just to make something clear that some people keep missleading, and this is that PC Gaming is expesive, which is not true, i just want this missinformation to stop, that’s all!

          • No Place For Hayter

            It isn’t that PC gaming is expensive, it is that to get better hardware than the nex-gen consoles you would have to spend more money and more effort.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Yes, but only from time to time, not even once 2 years!

          • No Place For Hayter

            True, true.

          • Shalashaska

            WEll i dont play online so i just play for the discs… but i have wanted a pc but if i invest in a pc or nex gen.. i may have to wait till NEXT year to play the game :/

          • MichaelPayneV

            As i said, think it throught before you decide, don’t let anyone influence your decision, HELL, don’t let even ME influence you either!

          • Shalashaska

            I wish.. I want to play this game asap but if i jump into to even buy the cheapest old gen console i can find, i will end up wasting all that money just for one game which is such a bummer because that one game is like the game i want to play the most while at the same time, i dont want to waste my money in such an investment :’/

          • solideater

            Can’t you rent a console Or any friend from which you can borrow?

          • Shalashaska

            rent a console ? Damn.. never thought of that but umm .. i dont know where i can get something like that .. perhaps i should look out for that too

          • solideater

            I know how you feel. When I was not able to buy a PS3 for MGS4, I downloaded whole game-play of MGS4 from youtube and use to hold a controller and pretend playing MGS4 🙁

          • Shalashaska

            shit dude.. I doubt i’ll be able to handle just watching gameplay.. been waiting for SO damn long..

          • solideater

            I waited 4 years to play MGS 4 after release…

          • CodeBox

            I feel like crying after I read this, dang that’s heartbreaking 🙁

          • CodeBox

            That’s a brilliant idea solid eater!
            Looked it up and Rent-A-Center has consoles you can rent.
            I’m not sure what the prices are like but here are the links:

          • MrVux007

            Ahhh here we go again:
            1)”you should instead invest in a PC then a Next-Gen Console”

            That would depend mostly on his personal preference and his financial situation

            2)”it will take a little more time to make money for a PC than a PS4″

            That would depend on couple of factors:

            A)In which country your are buying/ordering parts for your PC

            B)Are those parts used(second hand parts) or brand new

            to add up,for the most part you will need to squeeze out extra 100$-200$ average to match up to the current gen consoles(monitors and other accessories not included ofc)

            3)”but in the long run it will save you a lot of money, as on PC you won’t need to pay a mounthly subcription to in order to play online, adn you will basically have a better Multimedia device!”

            I completely agree on the multimedia device,since consoles are made for mainly one thing and that is gaming!

            Now here is the elephant in the room,first those subscriptions fees,are not only multiplayer usage,but also used for PS-plus discounts,game testing,cloud save space and the sweetest part of all….monthly free games that makes your money worth

            PC digital games and consoles digital versions of the games all have the same price tag on launch(for the most part),and then you may or may not expect some steam sales/consoles sales later on…so if you buy games on launch you will hardly see any difference in pricing

            “But what about retail version,aren’t they more expensive then digital?”you may ask..and the answer is yes,but arent we disscussing “saving money”,cuz if you are such a “cheap”(sorry if the expression insults ya)kind of gamer,you wont bother buying games at launch…

            And thus comes the all popular,second hand market…

            In matter of weeks after the launch you can expect,game hurling into the second hand sale (losing from 5$-15$ dollar value,making a 60$ game into 55$-45$ game).

            And most of the console folk wait 1-2 years after the consoles launches,and buy games second hand(and save A LOT money in the process since games released in those two years have lost value).Some prices on second hand sites,put Steam and GOG sales to shame.

            “Second hand market harms the developers!” you may state

            So does piracy and sales…but lets get one thing out of the way,used games market has been around as long as the industry has. If it was really that harmful, you would see studios shut down from it. But what do they shut down from instead? Lackluster sales, poor games, bad management, etc.

            “If there is 1 thing i have about Console fan-boys (If it doesn’t apply, let it fly) is the misconceptions that PC Gaming is expensive, but that is all BS, Console Gaming is a lot more expensive on the long run, the PS Plus and Xbox Live alone make it expensive, so don’t listen to this BS!”

            if there is one of “many” misconceptions of elitist PC gamers/fanboys have about console gaming is that its way to expensive in the long run,when in the end both PC gaming and Console gaming are pretty much the same when it comes to saving money!Claiming that one is better/cheaper then the other is highly subjective thinking!

            So again i want to plee you Mike,respect other gaming platforms and dont try to “try” to lower “usual” fanboy crap… ohhh and before i end my statement i need to state my “safety words” :

            ehem….”If it doesn’t apply, let it fly!” 😀

            @disqus_y2bjMxrg05:disqus sorry to hear about your Xbox…but you know that old saying “everything good has to end eventually”,if you cant afford a new gaming PC,or a current gen console and if you cant buy a second hand Xbox,(which you can get the really cheap these days,some ranging from 50$-80$ but that is rare case…but i can tell you for sure that you can get a PS3 for 100$ or less)…i would recommend,borrowing one from ya friends 😀
            Also(when and if you are able to afford it and if you want to buy current gen consoles) i would not recommend you buying a PS4,if you are mainly a Xbox player,then XboxOne is the console for ya(especially that you can play Xbox360 “retail”games now,TPP is pretty much same on all current gen/PC versions so you will be fine…those are my two cents 🙂

          • MichaelPayneV

            And here we go again, you getting defensive about your plastic.

          • MrVux007

            Im getting defensive about my plastic? then by your logic you are getting offensive with your plastic lol

            Nope,only stating an counter-argument about whats the “best” option for gaming..the moral of the story is,both PC and console gaming has its ups and downs,and using/claiming that only one of those options is better then the other is both objectively and subjectively wrong,since both sides of the coin are the same !when you take everything into consideration!
            But i was generaly talking how to smartly use your money,if you want to save it up on console side AND confining yourself to only one platform will only make your gaming experiance lesser…for example i game on both the PC and PS4 currently(well not really “currently” since you know…real life obligations suck sometimes)…

          • MichaelPayneV

            Whatever man, what i was trying to say is that if you only have money to own just 1 Multimedia device in your home, that a PC is the way to go, since you can do more than gaming, with a PC!

            Again, whatever!

          • MrVux007

            If you need a multimedia device then sure PC is a choice to go…but since the user has a PC,and we were generaly talking about gaming,your statement is semi-invalid…
            whatever “whatever”

          • MichaelPayneV

            Salute.

    • H’m

      DUDE…. thats shit, like connor said try to get a second hand xbox 360 or ps3.. hopefully you
      find something, goid luck

    • Robin Besch

      shit i dont even know what to say bro…

    • Gatsu

      Oh shit, really?

    • J_muse72

      I saw some cheap PS3s at Gamestop for $100 if you can afford it, I suggest that.

      • Shalashaska

        not a bad idea.. i dont have a card though. perhaps i can pay a friend to get it.. i shall try.. see which one is best

        • J_muse72

          What kind of card?

          • Shalashaska

            my bad.. i meant credit or debit card for online shopping 😛

          • J_muse72

            Oh I see, you still have 12 days, I hope you can find a way to play TPP comrade!

        • Danny Patten

          Ebay is also an idea. Just don’t take whats cheapest. Look at ratings and stuff 🙂

    • Venom_Sina

      Oh,man.That’s really bad.I’m sorry.Was your 360 a fat or slim?It doesn’t give you an error or something?

      • Shalashaska

        it was the fat black 360 elite version.. had got it for my like 5 years ago or something

        • Venom_Sina

          Ok.Is it a Falcon model?Falcons are made in 2007-2008.
          One other thing:When you turn your console on,do you have your dashboard,or an error code or nothing?

          • Shalashaska

            nothing nada.. which is the worst thing there can possibly be.. there isnt any issue with the hdmi port of anything.. I went to the shop and saw it.. its gone… Ive repaired the xbox before so i know the difference between RROD, or that crappy error black screen thing..
            it doesnt get switched on.. :/

            oh and to answer your question.. its made in 2009 i think.. cant remember what the name is for that .. i think it was jasper .. cant remember

          • Venom_Sina

            Yeah.The 2009 model is a Jasper.If you saw inside your console and you know there’s no hope,then I’m sorry,man.I wanted to help,but looks like I can’t.I’m really sorry.

            You got 12 days,man.I’m sure you can find something good to play MGSV on.Don’t lose your hope.

          • Shalashaska

            Its gone.. like the only way to repair that damage would be to literally get a new other board in whole which is just unrealistic .. getting a new mother board is like getting a new xbox .. :/

            I hope.. im looking at all my possibilities, hoping i get some way to play this by september 1st 🙁 I will so die if i cant play this game on 1st after all this waiting

    • Doktor_C_H_A_O_S

      That just plain sucks man.

    • No Place For Hayter

      That sucks beyond belief 🙁 darn, gotta be a quicker solution somewhere, even after release as you can do a media black out until you play the game, but that could probably only be enforced for about a week or two, after that it is much harder.

    • CodeBox

      Man that is terrible! I did some searching on GameStop and found a few ideas for you below. It looks like the Xbox 360 is cheapest at $80 and if you have any games you could turn in toward that purchase I think that will also reduce the price.
      I wish there was a better way I could help you out. Good luck and I hope it works out for you.

    This certainly tugged my heartstrings a bit, which means this might get wordy. In which case, I apologize in advance!

    I still fondly look back on the days of obsessively playing the original MGS demo on the PS1 with my brother while we anxiously awaited the game itself. It certainly made an impression, and I have played every single mainline MGS game that has come out since. I remember a friend of ours buying a PS2 and Zone of the Enders solely for the tanker mission, and us spending untold amounts of time with it. Then playing Snake Eater without the benefit of any prior knowledge of the game other than that it was coming and all of us (my brother, the same friend and I) all coming to the realization that we were actually playing as Big Boss for the first time. We didn’t expect that! And, of course, there was MGS4. I didn’t get to play that one when it first came out because I couldn’t afford a PS3, but I DID get to watch my brother play through it. The thing about it that has always stuck out the most to me is Old Snake’s theme and how beautifully it recalls the main theme in Unforgiven. And it was seeing Ground Zeroes at that same friend’s house that made me bite the bullet and buy my PS4. The promise of The Phantom Pain alone was worth the $400 to me!

    The build up of anticipation for a Metal Gear game is something I have never experienced on as grand a scale for other game series, and I think that’s because of Hideo Kojima’s track record. On one hand, I can’t wait for TPP to finally be released and am beyond ready to savor every moment; To see what fan theories pan out, to see what twists and turns the story takes. To see, once and for all, why Big Boss became, in Miller’s own words, ‘a monster.’ On the other hand, barring a miracle, it’s the last time Kojima will be making a Metal Gear game. So for me, this will effectively be the last Metal Gear game ever (whether Konami makes their own or not). Other game series that change creative hands tend to be fine and even flourish, but that is because none have had such a distinctive creative voice as that of Mr. Kojima. Even though he almost always has co-writers, his voice is the driving force behind the series, and without it everything feels wrong to me. Hollow even.

    I may have long been ready to play TPP, but I don’t think I’m ready for the WHOLE ride to end on its shoulders!

    Not for any nation…
    Not for any ideology…
    Not for justice….
    Not for honor…
    Not for power…
    Not for the future…
    Not for love…
    Not for peace…
    Only for Metal Gear.

    As I’ve said before, I cannot wait to play this. Especially with seeing Big Boss’s final descent into Hell.
