MGSV: The Phantom Pain tops Media Create and Famitsu charts

The sales charts of both Media Create and Famitsu have been revealed, and although the exact numbers are somewhat different, both tell us two things: MGSV tops the Japanese charts (PS4 version at 1 and PS3 version at 2), and PlayStation 4 hardware sales have increased significantly over last week, no doubt as a result of MGSV.

  • Venom_Sina

    That was expectable.It’s about Japan and a Japanese game.
    BTW,Boss,I have an idea for the next poll.Asking about the story of the game and how people liked it or not,something like this:Do you think the story was good in TPP?Yes/No.
    Bedankt,boss!!!

    • gerber

      (!heavy spoiler alert!) (chaotic rant incoming)

      To me it’s not as simple as yes/no. On one hand I hate the story. We were also told there will be lot of dark stuff and taboos. What are those taboos? The rape attempt at Quiet? Killing your own infected men which is the only right choice? Ground Zeroes was more hardcore with the surgery and vagina bomb. Also like most of us I expected to see some hardcore shit Boss goes through that made him evil. We all knew that key moment is The Boss’s death, but I guess we wanted something more because he seemed still pretty sane and moral in PW. And there are so many questions unanswered, like unfinished story with Eli and Mantis (yeah I know about episode 51). What is wrong with Kaz’s eyes? Why Quiet didn’t use writing? If Ahab got plastic surgery to look like Big Boss, does Big Boss goes through one too? Ocelot gave him passport with Ahab’s real face, so wtf? Why in this cutscene bridge is destroyed? Does it mean it happened after Ahab’s escape? It doesn’t make sense. Why the tape is named Operation Intrude N313? Did real BB send Solid at outer heaven to get rid of Venom or get rid of Solid? And where is the awesome first scene from Nuclear trailer? Anyway…

      On the other hand I love this twist. The game’s theme is phantom pain and that’s what this game gave to me. After finishing story I feel empty and like something was stolen from me. That’s a surprisingly strong feeling I got from “just” a video game and I find it awesome. What is strange also, few days after that I got over it, I feel relief and don’t want to know more stories about Big Boss. He brainwashed his man to take attention away from himself and work in the shadows. I guess he’s not a hero after all, never was, never will be. I also like that this game explains some MSX plot holes. I think it’s cool that it is Venom who dies in MG1. He seemed different there than BB in MG2 and MGS4. It also explains how Miller gets to hate Big Boss for leaving him and why he is working against him with Solid in the future.

      In the end the game was unique experience, completely different than expected but not necessarily worse. Just different

      • 100% agree with you dude. Couldn’t of nailed that better. I feel the phantom pain but maybe there’s s third instalment to complete it. Who knows. Or this might be it and say goodbye to the cut content (which looked to be the best scenes)…

        • asdasdfd

          It should have 5 chapters you know cause of V

          • Well apparently it was meant to have 5 or even 6 I think. I remember reading something the other day about it

  • Hussain Alkhalaqi

    If only it was indeed 200 times bigger than GZ, guess it was my fault for playing GZ too much.

    • Wiz

      It took me between 3-5 hours to be done with GZ, and 60 to finish tpp 😀

  • muaddib

    I’m stucked in Mission 15
    … because i cannot proguess without doing ALL the Side Ops, at least in Afghanistan. It’s like, if i don’t do even one single Side Ops i’ll miss something.
    I’m doing every Side Ops and won’t continue the story till it ends. It’s a nightmare. And this “Extract this Guy” Side Ops are all the same fucking thing.
    In Afghanistan there’s these Side Ops where i need to rescue the same fucking female POW in the same fucking location in the same fucking outpost, however i’m doing every single one of them.
    HELP

    • Hussain Alkhalaqi

      You don’t really miss on big story elements if you don’t do some of the side ops, don’t sweat over it, unless it’s marked yellow (meaning it’s an important side-up and can mean something to the story), you can mostly do em later if you feel like it’s a drag.

      • muaddib

        Yeah, i know it, pretty much, i just know it.
        They ARE a drag, and if i don’t want to do, i won’t
        But it’s like an OCD, i can’t rest till everything is complete. It’s terrible.

    • Wiz

      The only story based side ops are the ones that are marked as such (yellow colored),

    • Cipher1986

      Some of the side ops you can do over again. Make sure your not repeating the ones you already did. Some will keep popping as new

    • Steven Michael Brown

      The thing that annoys me most I think is that most of the extract highly skilled soldier side ops the targets were mostly all d’s and e’s

      • Steven Michael Brown

        So far… I’m only on mission 13 story wise but yeH most of those side ops are screwed up

  • Gatsu

    That’s pretty good! Just what I’d expect from the game, that has the same code name as the previous ones.

    • gerber

      It’s been a long time since I’ve had such a good game…

      • Bożydar Mazur

  • Mr.Pony

    To all of you who have done mission 43…and felt the pain…

    • AeroGre

      Didnt use the butterfly huh?

      • Mr.Pony

        the emblem thing is mission 42 not 43

        • AeroGre

          You know what, I think you just saved my life.

    • Mr. Sir Shpee

      Eugghhhhh… mission 14 here and all I hear about is mission 43 this and 43 that. Makes me want to rush the story but I want to really take it in.

      • AeroGre

        No point in rushing through it, just enjoy it and stay away from spoilers, also do yourself a favor and make a backup of your save file after mission 40, Cant tell you why without spoiling it though

        • Mr. Sir Shpee

          I’ll keep it in mind…

          damnit now I’m curious

    • AeroGre

      Just finished it…that room…dammit kojima

  • muaddib

    Wow, X1 sells even less than PS3 in Japan. Maybe with Scalebound it changes.

    [SUPEROFF]

    Talking bout the devil, i think X1 really looks better than PS4 (although that Dualshock’s light is very nice), and i played in both: X1’s joystick is better, the system is better, online features are better, Xbox Division’s new politics are better, support is better (not much sure bout that), now they have retrocompatibility (till the end of this generation, pretty much the entire X360 library will be disponible), the exclusives are better, and so go on. The only PS4 exclusive i’m looking for is The Last Guardian (Shemnue 3 will be released on PC, too). One think i didn’t like for the PS4 is the “1080p 60fps”. The feature itself is, obviously, good, but however Microsoft released a more acessible hardware in 720p 30fps. The fact is, MS gave the game devs the time to get used with X1’s architecture, and by nows, 70%-80% X1 games are in 1080p 60fps. TPP is 900p upscaled, wich means in less movimented areas the game runs at 1080p (the prologue’s cutscene were totally in 1080p, for example). In the PS4 the devs were obligated to launch a game without the proper circumstences, just like The Witcher 3.

    I think i’ll buy an X1 over PS4 when the time comes, but my fear is that if the 7th generation all over again: Xbox 360 launches early, sell more, more exclusives, better presentation, PS3 launches very later, didn’t sell much, less exclusives, but the game changed in 2011- 2013, making the PS4 the king of the sales, in the beggining of the current-gen.

    • N-Shifter

      Sounds to me like your trying to convince other people that X1 is the way to go…….you’ve a very large hill to climb if that’s what you’re trying to do. It’s not just the sales in the charts above that it’s not doing well in, it’s sales everywhere in every chart.

      Buy whatever you feel is right for you though 🙂

    • No Place For Hayter

      What do I think? I think you can buy what ever you want for what ever reasons. But this time around which console is better technically isn’t even debatable, on a technical scale the PS4 wins FAR over the X1, Sony also made it as developer friendly as possibly the reverse of the PS3. That being said the X1 does have better software, Sony blows in there software department.

      Aside from the hardware, everything else is up to what every person personally wants, that’s what I think.

  • Gatsu

    @gerber
    If you wanna discuss the spoilers more, you can also do it here on the forum’s thread :). All you gotta do is create a user which take 1-2 min.
    http://w11.zetaboards.com/The_Cardboard_Box/topic/11321341/4/#new

    I can answer few of those maybe, but not here just yet.

    • Plissken

      Guess I’ll have to stop by in a few days when I beat the game. I might have more questions than Snake…
      “Questions?!”

  • FMercenary

    Pretty awesome to say the least. I’m definitely curious to see sales results for the rest of the world, also devided by region just to see specifics.

  • solidsnack

    i hate ocelots glasses, they make him look more comical than the chicken hat! i bet the next game will have pepsi ad placements “JF the phantom pepsi sodadrink”

    • Actually Peace Walker had Mountain Dew.

      • solidsnack

        ye but not mountain dew credits every time they appeared.. i thought those product places were more tongue in cheek this feels like a whole other thing : actually it’s pretty much the same i just feel weird about the way it’s presented in the credits and stuff *shrugz*

      • Mr. Sir Shpee

        xX_MLG_B1G_B055_420_D3WR1T05_Xx

    • No Place For Hayter

      MGSV The Phantom Product

      It seriously pissed me off to have that product placement shit show up in game, it is one thing to have the character wearing it, it is another thing ENTIRELY to say ON SCREEN IN BIG TEXT “OMG THESE ARE REAL BUY THEM! AREN’T THEY AMAZING!” so much for our immersion. Great now I’m mad again, lol.

      • Gatsu

        Relax bro :D.

        • No Place For Hayter

          I appear more on edge than I am 😉

          ^( – – )^ My Zen pose.

      • solidsnack

        exactly! it’s not a huge thing but this game is disappointing me more the more i play. now don’t get me wrong the gameplay is flawless and fun and i know not everyone feels the same, but to me this is so far removed from what i loved about mgs. i’m sad this is the goodbye i get, product placements, mb coins, unfinished content pivotal to the story and the feeling like i was playing farcry or something and not metal gear. after all the wait and all the hype – and maybe that’s my fault for expecting so much – but i’m left feeling a little empty, and if that’s the feeling kojima wanted to leave us with then fine but i think that’s kind of strange when he loves his fans so much. sorry for the rant!

        • solidsnack

          tl:dr the phantom pain is real

  • grapes9h5

    KOJIMA!!! Singe handedly pumping back life into console gaming in Japan

  • Does anyone know if Kojima himself is happy with the final release??

    • Gatsu

      He was celebrating the good reviews with Hollywood friends, when he was making the commemoration video. So I think he is :). But I haven’t asked him directly though lol.

  • kirtanloorii

    Has ANYONE seen the cutscene that was featured in the opening of the Nuclear trailer? I can’t find it anywhere.

    • Gatsu

      Unfortunately no :(… It was one of the scenes I was looking forward to most. I don’t think it’s hidden in the game, but there is only one other explanation then. Maybe I’m wrong and can see it somehow.

    • No Place For Hayter

      There are quite a few scenes from the trailers which aren’t in the game.

      • asdasdfd

        Snake with horn in a bike with a helicopter in his back, african kids with AK, snake going nuclear, yup there is a few.

        • No Place For Hayter

          Diamond Dogs infighting.

          • Gatsu

            That is in TPP.

          • No Place For Hayter

            The scene with Big Boss stabbing himself?

            Really? is it a low morale thing? Negative GMP thing?

          • Tong Ninja

            Negative GMP. 🙂
            It’s a good scene as well! Kiefer actually talks quite a bit in that scene. Haha

          • stocchinet .

            I triggered yesterday, don’t know how, idroid said to me “motherbase is in red” i hopped into the chopper and it started, awesome scene

          • Gatsu

            Yeah that’s right. Some scenes are a bit hidden. I got it when greedily developed too much lol. My favourite cutscene so awesome 😀 and it’s cool what Kiefer say in the end lol.

          • BlankAzure

            I actually saw that one after letting my GMP go pretty far into the red but I also hadn’t come back in awhile either way morale has to go Dow a good bit before that it is actual a scene I didn’t see til after I beat the game

          • No Place For Hayter

            Oh ok, so THATS the low GMP scene I haven’t seen, lol. I thought that would have shown up as infighting due to story, not moral and funds, lol.

          • Random sniper

            That was also in the game!

          • No Place For Hayter

            T_T My bad I looked up everything I missed, things like birthday and infighting.

        • Random sniper

          The scene in the hike was in the game dumbass

        • Random sniper

          The training scene with child soldiers was in pitch dark

    • FMercenary

      Maybe you need to have a large amount of Demon points to trigger that scene?

      • Gatsu

        The horn was pretty big in it, maybe can trigger like it. It wouldn’t be the only thing hidden. But I think something would have to lead to the scene, a mission maybe I dunno.

    • DMCMaster

      You mean the shot of Big Boss walking in Africa with bodies all around?

      Pretty sure that scene is still in the game, but it takes place in a different location now (if you’ve completed the game you can probably guess what scene)

      • kirtanloorii

        Yeah, I guess.

  • Gatsu

    Finishing extreme Traitor’s Caravan with D-Walker is awesome, I’m starting to love this little mecha :D.

    • ElAlca

      Just finished mission 42 thanks to D-Walker. xD

  • Mr. Sir Shpee

    As I expected.

    On another note, what’s everyone’s thoughts on the http://www.ingsoc.org/ thing?

    • MichaelPayneV

      Some people say is fake because it looks fan-made…but so did P.T.

      • Mr. Sir Shpee

        Then there’s all the coincidences with Kojima’s twitter and Ken Imaizumi’s response…

        The thing is I’d love to buy into the MGSV update theory and the whole thing of simulating an emotional phantom pain with cut content and all. But at the same time the site gives me a horror vibe and apparently mentions “an unannounced Nintendo console” somewhere. If this has anything to do with Kojima, I wouldn’t be shocked if it was a new horror game by him for the next Nintendo console. This would be such a perfect ending to MGS though.

        But then things like this happen, and apparently whoever your recruit named Black Hound is, they have some unique dialogue.. https://i.imgur.com/ZLSFdbr.jpg

        I don’t know how to feel, really. One thing that really intrigues me is… what’s the point of City camo and Splitter in TPP if it’s all in Afghanistan and Africa? We’ll have to see.

        • MichaelPayneV

          Exactly!

          • Mr. Sir Shpee

            And now Konami EU favorited a tweet by PythonSelkan about this…

            boarding Kojima’s ruse cruise.

            only thing that gives me doubt is the thing on the site about “an unannounced Nintendo console”. but everything checks out. We’ll see in 20 hours.

          • JJBYACH

            You remember the head transplant theories? All those crazy coincidences? Please don’t get your hopes up, nothing is coming. One of the key sources of evidence for this theory (a YouTube channel called project omega – releasing really cryptic and Kojima-esq, videos relating to this back since 2012), he just recently came out and said all his videos were fake and it was just a fan thing to keep the hype going. So if that doesn’t put this thing to rest, I don’t know what else would.

          • Mr. Sir Shpee

            I’m keeping myself in check, don’t worry. It’s just that there’s a lot of stuff lining up with this, and it’s something only Kojima would do. I don’t remember anything about the head transplant theory. I never looked into theories much, but I remember the uproar over it. From my understanding this is quite a different situation we have here. All the same, I’m not 100% on the ruse cruise yet. We will see in 12 hours.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Fake, fan made, the usually, which every will cling on to in hopes of something more. No better hoax than something people actually want, you will get people believing it no matter how much it obviously isn’t real.

      That being said you never know, though I’m placing 100% of my bets on it being completely fake and will only serve to hurt and disappoint people, I hate the assholes that get a kick out of playing people.

      • Mr. Sir Shpee

        There’s evidence for both sides here, really. There’s a lot in favor and against it. I’m not 100% on board with this, but I personally believe this more than I ever believed Survivor2299.

        • solideater

          It can be fake or maybe not…I was thinking do you remember how MGS4 was played, every act was individually installed before playing. To generate phantom pain the game has been partially installed and the rumor has it a patched would be released which would download or unlock the rest of the content. For PC the game would download additional content due to the fear of data mining and for consoles the data is already on the disc… Besides I have 0.1% faith being true

          • Mr. Sir Shpee

            Huh. Never finished the MGS4 let’s play I was watching, but I remember something about it installing between acts.

            But now that Robert Peeler is tweeting suspicious stuff and such, I’m starting to believe more and more. We’ll see in less than three hours.

  • MichaelPayneV

    Wow, looks like TPP has more Cutscenes than expected…and by Cutscenes I mean Scenes Cut from the final release!

    Shame on you, Konami!

    • AeroGre

      I wouldnt even mind to wait longer for a better story but yes konami wants their money

      • Me neither. I’m mad that’s it cut. But I’d happy get a dlc or a part 3 epilogue like GZ being an intro. I’d still buy either. I hope a part 3 comes out, would be sick.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Hahahaha, rofl, I see what you did there ( ‘ ‘ )-b

    • asdasdfd

      Yeah blame Konami for everything, very mature.

      • No Place For Hayter

        To be fair it is Konami that forced Kojima to push it out the door, lol. But that is only one detail in a large affair.

        Also if he was wrong it would be immature it would be ignorant.

        • JJBYACH

          But it makes sense from a business perspective. Kojima failed to plan the budget, kept delaying the game and polishing it to meet his own standard of perfection. Soon stupid ass Konami realised all they are doing is throwing money into a black hole and cut Kojima off from a money well he seemingly thought as bottomless, so he just had to make do. In this situation Konami hasn’t done anything nefarious, they have only done what any other business would of done years ago – because they are Konami, and Konami is stupid.

          • Y Jebai

            But still. You did read how they treat their employees, right? And if a shitty game like Destiny can get a 500 million dollar budget, MGS V should get at least that. Sure Activision’s bigger and shittier than Konami, but still. 150 million would’ve probably done the trick. And they would’ve gotten that money back.

          • JJBYACH

            It doesn’t work that way: that just because one company can afford to pump X amount of money into a product that every company should do the same – it’s like saying just because someone can afford an iPhone why doesn’t everyone else buy one.

            Also in regards to budgeting, I would be shocked to hear of any AAA game in existence that had more money put into its actual development than marketing (unless it gets multiple delays and stuff). I’m not saying Konami doesn’t deserve the hate for all the BS it has done, but in the case of MGSV Kojima is in fault as much as Konami, he is the director and goddamn producer, it is his job to manage the resources allocated I in accordance with his creative vision.

          • solidsnack

            yes.

            Oh yeah, I know that. I’m just saying it deserved that kind of money. From a business point of view it’s obviously Kojima’s fault as well. Still! This game has a much higher quality than Destiny does and should therefor get more money to make it. Also, it does look like most of that 500 mio went into marketing there, which is a testiment to the badness of the gaming industry at this point in time. In part, sure, it’s Kojima’s fault that they went over budget and that there have been so many delays and stuff, but on the other hand Konami should not have pushed the way they did, either. They also shouldn’t have cancelled Silent Hills and they should definitely treat their staff better.

          • Gatsu

            Silent Hills noo ….damn those bastards.

          • JJBYACH

            Yeah, but since there are so many factors in play, it is a difficult subject to wade through and generate a consensu. Nevertheless all we really know is that Konami sucks, and yeah.

          • Y Jebai

            Amen to that. But yeah, it is a difficult situation and we clearly don’t know all the factors, so it’s all just speculation and wishful thinking.

          • No Place For Hayter

            I understand the “business” perspective. This may sound kind of rude but I don’t mean it that way, don’t talk to me about the “business” perspective, the “business” perspective is nothing more than a title to hide behind when being an asshole moral less money grabbing piece of shit, just because it makes sense from a business perspective does not make it right by ANY MEANS. My morals and way of think on this are set in stone.

    Is chapter 2 good? I just finished chapter 1 with 62 hours in and it was amazing but I want to know if chapter 2 is good, Also are extreme missions hard, Or just a little bit harder than normal?

    • Gatsu

      It is great imo.

      They are harder, some require total stealth etc.

      • vic boss

        Haha I guess sahelanthropus in extreme is fuc*ing hard uh?

        • No Place For Hayter

          It is, at first, it is always about developing better equipment and weapons 🙂

        • Mini gear

          easy as first if you can dodge

    • No Place For Hayter

      Ummm it would take a whole couple of paragraphs to tell you if chapter 2 is any good because of how broken apart and unfinished it is. That being said some of it is great some of it is horrible, but that is just my opinion.

      The harder missions are MUCH harder, that being said if you know how to tackle them it is MUCH easier, lol.

    • asdasdfd

      It’s okay…a lot more shorter than 1 and not so good.

    • Mini gear

      for me and half of players it kinda feels like chapter 2 is a unfinished project that they left on, does have some really good moments

  • Snake

    This is the Max GMP on the game lol 5000000GMP?

    • No Place For Hayter

      Of course, the game understand that you will never have any money and so they decided to cap it at the incredibly small number of 5 million, because if you have more than that, either you are up of things to develop or the game isn’t doing something right, it is designed to keep you broke at all times, I have to sit at 1 million just to make sure I have what I might need, of course I ALWAYS seel my precious medals and end up at 5 million in the blink of an eye, but that is gone just as quick as it arrived developing all my equipment and weapons.

      It is a poor and stupid cap designed around a poor system which is meant to keep you starved of GMP and resources.

      • I have never been close to broke. I don’t understand why this is another thing you seem upset about. It’s a game, you have to manage things. I hate when games treat me like a child and reward me to much and I have a bunch of currency and nothing to do with it.The only resource that’s a bitch to get is fuel. Which makes everything you build ahs develop feel earned, Pretty much anything else could be sold for GMP I have even maxed out my GMP on selling black carrots alone. If you just manage your resources and even your rewards for combat deployments you should be good.

        • No Place For Hayter

          I’m only upset about the absurd costs to do things increasing for no reason in the game, that and there is no form of income other than selling your precious metals.

          For example the difference between sending a rank 5 helicopter and a rank 1 helicopter is HUGE about 50k difference, which makes no sense, I’M NOT CREATING a helicopter to send my way, I’m simply paying for the fuel to send it, the price to send out a helicopter should never increase. The problem with the system is an ever increasing price of everything in the game and yet how much money you get rewarded with never increases, all this does is slow the game down and makes you wait and grind when otherwise you shouldn’t be.

          I’m always “close” to being broke but I’m never broke, I am always good. I am an expert at managing my resources I know what I need and when I need it and what I can afford to throw away on some pointless R&D, my understanding of the system is what annoys me about the system, I have to deal with these annoyances for hours on end every day. My problem lies in the systems design and encouragement to always be broke. At the beginning of the game 100k was A LOT of money, and at the end of the game it STILL IS, this wouldn’t be a problem if everything still costed the same amount but everything increases but the amount you get, and there is no real way of earning income, you are running Diamond Dogs a business but that business brings in NEXT TO NOTHING it is unrealistic and annoying to deal with, hence why I’m upset about it.

          That being said I come across more angry about things in text than I actually I’m. I’m king of talking about and nitpicking things I dislike/hate but I still tend to use a more personal language when I just talking about game systems, such as the post you read including words like “poor” and “stupid”, guess I could stick to more of a cold methodical sort of language, but where is the flare and fun in that? lol, it is only text after all gotta give it some flavour, lol.

          “I don’t understand why this is another thing you seem upset about” When I play a game a lot it’s flaws tend to stand out a lot, like a LOT.

          • Maybe I’m just reading things to hard haha it’s just being a long day -_- haha

          • Sirhumpalotzzz

            If you don’t like the game,go play Mad Max then you’ll be able to complain about that and leave our Motherbase.It’s getting pretty crowded anyway

          • No Place For Hayter

            Haha, nice troll, first time I have seen one here . No game is without it’s flaws, if you don’t like someone else’s opinion maybe it is time you left and grew up a little bit. Nice troll though 😉

          • Sirhumpalotzzz

            Didn’t mean to be rude, just tired of seeing complains constantly.I respect your opinion but the last thing anyone of the diamond dogs wants to see is negativity on mother base……it lowers morale!thanks for welcoming brother and apologies if you took offence,not my intention.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Oh ok, lol, sorry I mistook your intention. I’ll keep my doom and gloom to a minimum.

          • AeroGre

            I can agree with the helicopter thing its too pricey to call in but recently ive just been riding material containers to go back to the ACC

        • Gatsu

          Fuel is slow to get yeah, I wanna build my MB to full size but jesus christ the amount needed, lol. O_o

          • I fully built mine yesterday actually. Now it’s time for me to build….other things *dramatic music*

      • Gatsu

        I find it hard to go broke, but there has been couple times when I got too greedy and developed too much. GMP come so easily so I don’t see this as a problem :). The highest I’ve gotten is maybe 2 million.

        • No Place For Hayter

          Sounds like you need to sell more precious medals 😉 I always like to jump from 5 million to under 1, lol.

      • Snake

        But i only 25% of the game, lol I have to develop more weapons, to spend more GMP

      • ObsessedGeorge

  • BurntFM

    Guys. I need some help. So I finished Ep 35 and side ops 57 and side ops 58 is not unlocked. I read that’s the only requirements to get sideops 58 to get those two missions. Am I missing something here?

  • BurntFM

    Godfuckingdamnit!!!!!!!!! I’m so fucking mad. So I’ve been playing offline since day one. Only time I connected was for that mission to set up FOB. Now I carried on with my game not paying any attention to the fob now today I start the game and I get a message that I “failed to defend” the fob and my Intel level went down. WTF I thought they said time and again that the online was optional. Know what. I don’t even care anymore. I just need to get through the game. Turns out even if you play offline the online affects your game. Wooptie fucking doo.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah, it isn’t optional, only way is to go offline and stay offline, I’m personally afraid to go online >.< god knows what I will lose.

      • BurntFM

        Thing is… I didn’t even want to go online just one of those times where I just press x a lot to start the game lol. If Kojima’s wanted his game to be emotional. He succeeded. But for the wrong reasons cause I have some emotions I shouldn’t have about a game >:(

      • gerber

        Your fob is on the server and if you login eventually your game will get updated with losses. I guess thats the only advantageof playing ps3 version that I rarely get attacked 😀

  • Eugene Voldo

    Guys, I know that it’s not the right place to ask, bit can someone answer two little questions about the game in a spoiler-free way?

    1. Does TPP have a New Game Plus? Or can you transfer all your units and other stuff between playtroughs?

    2. When you complete the last mission does the game ends? Can you replay missions after that point?

    • gerber

      1. It doesn’t have NG+ but it has some new difficult variations of some previous missions.

      2. You can replay all of the main missions any time. As for side ops, some of the finished randomly reappear

      • Eugene Voldo

        Thanks for the answer!

  • JJBYACH

    Have anyone done all side ops? I wonder are there some cool side ops like in PW (pooyan, ghost hunting, dates etc) or is it always extract/eliminate soldier/prisoner/vehicle?

    • Tong Ninja

      Vast majority of them are extract/eliminate this person, retrieve blueprints, destroy this vehicle, hunt down legendary animals, etc. 🙂

      There are no cool/funny side-ops you mentioned above unfortunately … haha

    Hi comrads, i have finished the story, TPP is a great game but i must say i was expecting a lot more in terms of story and ending, even though that i must admit that there were many moments thru the game that i loved, i feel that something is missing… i’m looking foward to share my impressions with you guys in the future, maybe in the forums.

    • Gatsu

        McDonnell miller .now I know why kojima named him like that lol

        • AeroGre

          Yes I see now, Kaz was working with Cipher this whole time so he can control the world’s supply of fast food

  • BlankAzure

    Has anyone who has beat the game looked up the supposed cut final mission 51 kingdom of flies on YouTube.. I watched and it felt more like a idk fitting ending to the game rather than a cliffhanger
    Just curious oh and for obvious reason don’t look it up unless you finished the game already because of spoilers and stuff but it looks legit even has half finish cuts scene the ending looks rediculous bc there is no motion captured face but it does have the correct voice so the scene was made and voiced ppl should check it out assuming it’s not gonna be finished and release as dlc
    I’d put it up here but I don’t wanna get banned for spoilers

    • JJBYACH

      I didn’t really mind that it wasn’t included – sure it would of been an epic mission, but the game is far from incomplete without it, all the phantom episode did was just dramatically foreshadow stuff that we already knew was going to happen later in the time line. It added slight closure to only one plot thread that didn’t really need to be fleshed of as we already know how it plays out – alot of other plot lines deserved more attention and didn’t get any.

      • BlankAzure

        So the missing VC vial and Sahelanthropus just out there in the world that could both separately but together tear the foundation of humanity apart and bring death and destruction goin Mia with Eli and the third boy….that didn’t even seem like a red flag that was just something you’d just let go?

      • BlankAzure

        Well part of the ending does with the thing that did get brought up but never resolved big important plot heavy things that just disappear and we are suppose to just except that without wondering how they’d effect the world???

        • JJBYACH

          Um, yeah; pretty much lol. This is Metal Gear, so I am used to plot devices being used and never brought up again.

          I think Kojima’s rule for prequels is since said thing(s) were never brought up again in later games and are only used as a standalone plot device in the single game, it isn’t important and you should just forget about it. It’s how I ignore some of the plot holes in the series, introduced in the prequels.

          As Kojima himself stated his is willing to sacrifice consistency for the narrative of TPP (and I assume the other prequel games).

          Side note: you should go to the spoiler forums if you want to discuss spoilers.

          • BlankAzure

            i guess you’re right and i don’t really frequent forums and its hard being vague with spoilers on here but still it feels like more than a minor inconsistency but to each his own i suppose

          • BlankAzure

            i don’t really want to discuss anything either i was just curious if anyone who didnt have the bluray collectors behind the scenes disc knew of this cut finale because i didnt i just happen upon it on youtube after i beat the game and came out of my media black out i came to terms wif the ending and dont mind that its just the inconsistencies seem a bit um bigger than usual is all

    • AeroGre

      Im still wondering about what happens with quiet after her ending

  • Javier

    Are the precious metals for something or just for sell? I didn’t sell anything yet.
    I don’t know if sell the guns and cars that I fultoned.

    • J_muse72

      You need them to make an upgraded version of the Battle Dress, but I can’t remember what else they are for.
      I just know the Fuel Resources are my top priority.

      • Javier

        Thanks. The fuel resources are top for everyone. I dont like this very slow system for upgrading things and obtaining resources.

        • You use it for a few item you could develop late in the game

  • bigboss92110

    im really pissed at kill screen review 4 MGSV …….. he gave it a 69 out of 100 :((((((( thats really wrong

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      It can’t be wrong, it’s an opinion.

      • bigboss92110

        yh bro but it affects the metacritic score and i really wanted MGSV to beat MGS2 score

        • GrayFoxWasTaken

          Doesn’t make it wrong, again, it’s an opinion.

  • PlayStation4Life!

    console gaming is already dead in Japan, so this is a very great performance tbh.

  • Danny Patten

    So I just watched the Mission 51 Cutscene on the Blu Ray and I got to say that it left me feeling that TPP is more or less a Part 1? I dunno how else to describe it but I feel like we’re not yet finished.

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      Really? Greg the fag? What a mature way to express your distaste.

      • solidsnack

        seriously someone delete this comment this is an inclusive community no slurs please!!!!!

  • solideater

    Anyone playing it on PC.. Can someone tell me what is the exact installed game size…

    • Should be 28 Gigs

      • Hussain Alkhalaqi

        Should be, but isn’t DUN DUN DUN DAAAAAN conspiracy theorists, ASSEMBLE… Seriously though. it’s about 21GB on PC but 28GB on PS4/Xbone

  • GrayFoxWasTaken

    What does the guy at the quarantine mean when he says “I am not a snail”?
