    I'd love to know exactly why the 360 gets the new MGS but not MGS 4.

    Also, I don't think you could say Raiden seems to be as despised in Japan as he is in the rest of the world.

    Perhaps the same could be said of some gamers who doesn't post on messageboards and follow announcements and such too?
    Do you mean he's popular with "casual" fans in Japan? Or are you asking/speculating about his popularity with casual fans in the West?

    Both. Though he seems to be popular even with the hardcore crowd here. I think you're well aware that Japanese audiences don't generally complain about this "whiny namby boy" characters that seem to grate on the nerves of a lot of hardcore fans in other countries.
    Yes, that was what I was thinking. On the other side of the coin, the general UK market that MGS would be aimed at would, at a guess, not have warmed to his character/design in MGS2 imo. But I think he was more than redeemed in MGS4, where he is more of a proper badass.

    Maybe it's like a MGS4 Substance, where you play Raiden's part instead of Snakes?

    Meh, it's multi-platfrom anyway.

    Hated, adored, never ignored.

    Maybe MS didn't think the deal through that much? ;)

    I can understand why, the much anticipated sequel to the fantastic original was fronted by a new character that didn't offer as much as Solid did.

    No one said it was exclusive... Microsoft would have made a MASSIVE (like those caps) deal about it if it were.

    I actually didn't have a problem with Raiden (MGS 2 is still my personal favourite of the whole series) - but the fact that a lot of people do, and that's something Konami are aware of, suggests to me that this isn't going to be a full budget MGS sequel and more of a spin off like MGA, probably straddling another genre (hack n slash seems likely with Raiden's recent persona)

    I just don't play MGS for the "characters", I guess.

    I think it would be accurate to say that people are drawn to MGS in part due more due to it's "character," then it's "characters."

    God, I hope it's not a hack'n'slash. Stealth-em-up please.

    The trailer said, sneak in, so it will have stealth as a major element I guess. I guess he really will be a ninja.

    Didn't you see the new subtitle? Its "Lightning Bolt Action" instead of "Tactical Espionage Action"...

    Doubt they'd eliminate stealth elements from the game completely.
    I think there'll be room for both.

    I took that to be one of Kojima's little in-jokes rather than a serious suggestion of the way the game would play?

    I can't see the game being "Standard MGS except with Raiden", Otherwise you are kind of looking at an MGS5. I bet Kojima has no appetite for that, this game will be something a little different I reckon.

    I'd like to think so but then remember MGS: Integral, MGS2: Substance, etc. - it's not like there isn't precedent for him putting out rehashes of previous titles (although I admit this looks like it's not following the same form).

    Oh snap:

    "The game is indeed exclusive to the Xbox 360. Sorry, Sony fans."

    Wouldn't take that as confirmation, but pretty retarded (as I explained earlier) if true.

    If it is exclusive, then MS guy should be fired for not YELLING that out when Kojima was on stage.

    Solid rising? Reach around? Milo the sex toy? Microsoft are really going for the perverted sex market aren't. It's an untapped gold mine.

    After the ending of Metal Gear 4 I fucking hope so.

    Hmm, it's conspicuously absent from MS's PR list of exclusives.

    edit: in fact it's grouped with all the other multi-platform stuff. Not sure what's going on here.

    Yeah screw IGN. MS would have made a big deal if this was exclusive, it would be one hell of a score for them...

    Microsoft wrote:"Metal Gear Solid: Rising" will star Raiden, one of the most popular characters in the "Metal Gear Solid" universe

    LOL
