    PTOM - New MGS4 Info BLOWOUT!

    Please close if this has been posted.

    Did anybody get the new PlayStation the Official Magazine? The cover story was MGS4 in their "Top 10 PS3 Games of 2008". MGS4 was number 1 by the way. Since the source is a magazine, I can't provide any links, only pictures. But it is from the official magazine.

    I'll just list the new info to make it faster.

    NEW INFO!
    • Possible MGS4 + Metal Gear Online bundled together
    • When some scenes are shown related to other parts in the series, you can hold down a button to view a flashback from the original game. (Example: When talking about Metal Gear Rex, you can watch a flashback that plays from the earlier MG game to provide background info.)
    • ***Estimated 4 HOURS of cinematic cut scenes in the entire game!!!*** (More than MGS3)
    • 16 players online
    • Game types include Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, King of the Hill, and Team Sneak
    • Customizable characters can have up to three skills (like perks in COD4)
    • Some examples are "Marathon" for sprinting and "Narc" for showing enemy positions
    • Skills and weapons will level up the more you play
    • ***Up to 100 different weapons to acquire and use!!!***
    • SOP system allows you to know current position of teammates, current status of teammates, and even sharing perks
    Trivia
    • MGS4 has a staggering 200 people working on the project
    • 30 of those are animators
    • Octocamo will be able to use 300 surface textures throughout whole game
    Also, I looked at the images on GameFAQs. I found some pictures of Snake firing an FGM-148 Javelin (for those who watch FutureWeapons), and even an M224 mortar with the line coming out of the barrel showing where the shell would land (the same as when you throw a grenade in the game).

    ---Click on the thumbnails to enlarge.---

    FGM-148 Javelin:


    M224 mortar:


    Link to GameFAQs gallery, please check it out. Multiple pictures show Snake in the same position showcasing different weapons.

    Enjoy people!!!!! D

    good god
    I am not usually interested in futuristic games but this sounds so awesome
    the 100 weapons alone probably would not fit on a DVD9 (I set myself up for flaming)

    I wish I could be excited for MGS4, but for some reason I just don't care. I WILL be getting it, mind you, but the anticipation which I held when awaiting the release date of MGS3 is a feeling of the past. I wish I could get excited for games like I used to.

    *Pout face*

    Either way, it looks cool and thanks for the info.

    They should allow a mod so people can create their own magazines to throw around ingame, that'd really get people looking at them

    Sounds awesome, although I'm sure they mean weapons variations. Or does that mean we could use a broken bottle or things found on the street?

    So can this game come out before Christmas? I wish. It's probably the most ambitious game I have ever seen.

    No, no, no! Haha, 4 hours. That is still like 2 movies.

    And 100 weapons might include variations, but who cares? It still rocks!

    400?

    No, no no...4 hours, lol

    MGS4 just keeps sound more and more impressive as we get closer to launch. It will no doubt get Game of the Year, as every previous MGS game has.

    errr. 400 hours would be more like 16 days worth of cutscenes, not gameplay, just cutscenes. Now imagine if that was true though, spending more time watching cutscenes than playing a beating Cod4, assassins Creed, and uncharted, then actually playing the game, which will take up even more time.

    I hope everyone buys MGS4. It should be able to easily break 1 million copies in the first week. It would be truly a bad omen if MGS4 (one of the PS3's flagship franchise) does not sell well.

    100 weapons...thats effing awesome. man I can't wait for this game. I really hope they bundle MGS and Online and have it 60 bucks, although I have a feeling they'll probably charge more.

    see what happens when the devs dont rush out a game !! and some people were complaining about the delay and to those peeps i say "stop crying and let the devs do theire best" this game gets better every time they give us info on it.

    I swear Modus every post i have seen you make has always been a negative one. Why such the downer all the time? but when your right your right MGO at least a demo of it will be included with with MGS4 . Also the 200 people are working on both and doesnt include the sound people and some other people.

    Might as well save me the trouble and put your face in my cross-hairs, Why delay the inevitable?

    MGS4 & MGO will be one game. That same magazine confirmed this a week ago.
