  1. as long as konami dont anounce a load of IOS , OUYA , PC dribble i am fine .
    maybe its a movie or some remakes , maybe its something for wiiu who knows :).
    just dont start putting your stuff on horrible platfors like IOS .
    even make a vita game . i would buy that in a heart beat .
    better yet make a 3ds or wiiu metal gear.

    1. I can’t believe how fanboyish that comment was , iOS is not a “horrible” platform , it gets good games and has a lot of potential and might even beat the 3DS and VITA in terms of game graphics ..and then you say positive things about wii u and 3DS and you go on to say that they should bring a MGS game on those platforms ..Dufuaq ? MGS 3 was horrible on 3DS ..why does it need another one ? And wii U version would be just as bad ..You fanboys are cancer to this site

      1. ios is disrgaceful. there isnt even any proper games on ios.
        the 3ds and vita re dedicated handhelds with proper buttons etc.
        doubtfull you will see a game on ios with the detail of uncharted GA .
        anyway , you failed as a gamer. IOS is for casual idiots.
        3ds is a lot more hardcore than IOS will ever be. heck the original DS has better games than ios will ever get.
        so lets leave it there. you have officialy embarassed yourself. you are an IOS fanboy. also known as , the scum of gaming. IOS is all touchscreen man , ALL TOUCH SCREEN!!!!!. some buttons are essential , touchscreen is just addative.

        1. I can’t tell if you’re a troll or just an idiot , iOS has plenty of hardcore titles Heck ! They even have final fantasy,Cod,Bf,crash,sonic,mass effect ,dead space and more .. 3DS just has rehashed Nintendo titles… and why does the iphone support UE3 and 3DS dosnt ??And btw ..I’m not an iOS fanboy , I am a PC gamer ..

          1. Heh. Ness pretending to be a much more intelligent troll than he actually could ever be.

            Anyway;
            Final Fantasy games for the iOS are literally the same game released nearly 10 years ago for the same price, or a game equivalent to the original games but with – essentially – new fights. In Aeolus’ words, a ‘shitty rehash’.

            The CoD iOS game is not a full CoD game – just the Zombies portion of Black Ops; admittedly quite cheap, although would be nigh on impossible with only a touch screen input.

            Battlefield for iOS was pulled from the App store due to POOR QUALITY, and they have no intentions of returning it.

            Crash. You talking about Burnout Crash, or just the iOS apps crashing?

            Sonic. If Mario isn’t ‘hardcore’, then you can damn well bet Sonic isn’t ‘hardcore’ either.

            Mass Effect’s iOS game is just a cheap money grab with a poorly made game with the Mass Effect name slapped on for extra money. It’s supposedly very basic, and very short.

            Dead Space for the iOS is about the best iOS game out there, and the most ‘hardcore’, so I won’t complain about that.

            And in the end, you can just get a better version of the games on PC or Consoles anyway. It’s like getting a game for Vita as opposed to PS3 when you have both anyway.

        3. I agree with you on this topic, I don’t think OUYA will be successful. It also doesn’t innovate or anything, it’s more of the same. The PS3 and 360 were watered down PCs, while Nintendo did things with the Wii you couldn’t do NORMALLY on PCs. OUYA is once again a watered down PC, but it’s LITERALLY a watered down PC. Everything the OUYA does, the PC already can.

          The Wii U, the true next gen system, offers experiences that can’t be recreated on the PC. The 3DS offers experiences that can’t be recreated on Smartphones. With their basic strategy – making people smile – Nintendo will once again be the most successful company next generation, and they are still the world wide leader in innovation for gamer’s needs.

    3. It won’t be something for Nintendo platforms, that’s for sure… Kojima has 2nd party power. Similar to Rockstar he can pick and choice where he wants his games. Despite all the talk, he has never shown real desire to put his games on Nintendo’s consoles. Twin Snake was made by a none Konami team. Snake Eater 3D was a port of a old game. There is no Wii u version of Rising. His action speaks louder than his words.

        1. I don’t use credit cards for that reason, and many people refuse to do so for video games, as well, since it should be saved for larger purchases.
          Also, the kind of tech you’re talking about, won’t go into a 99 dollar plan. The tech would be too expensive to be able to make a profit off of that.
          Not all Americans over-pay for stuff.
          I know that, for me personally, if the Wii U was $500, I wouldn’t pay for that.
          I wouldn’t pay for a PS4 or 720 that approaches that price, either.
          Again, our economy simply cannot support a hugely expensive system the way certain people seem to think it will just because the graphics are super strong.
          Any system that stresses the point of graphics as justification for a gigantic price tag, in this economy, will not sell.
          And considering the people we’ve got running for government offices, I sincerely doubt that will change anytime soon, so yeah, the smart move would be to focus less on graphics this gen and focus more on making superb experiences in gameplay, instead.
          If PS4 can do that, if they can put the graphics whores in their place and shut them up by providing up-to-par graphics without overdoing them for the sake of outdoing their competitors, and keep their price point within an affordable range for the majority of gamers, then I’ll be getting a PS4.
          But if they fuck up and try to stress a huge price for the sake of huge graphics, they’ll flop and I won’t buy into it.
