    Metal Gear Online confirmed! \o/

    Hopefully less confusing and extensive cutscenes and more quality gameplay!! This could be quite something.

    If only it was a 360 game, then we might have some positive comments about it.

    I wonder if this'll be a dual download/BRD release? It's certainly faster to respond to invites with games on your HDD than swapping discs.

    Yeah, I hope they make it a download. As someone said before, more online games should allow the online portion to not require the disc, makes things so much easier.

    But then you'd be in the business of installing console games...

    Very cool! :)

    To be honest, I can't really see Konami releaseing this game on a disc, seems more likely it'll be downloadable or come as a part of MGS4 or something.

    Oh good shit no, why is there all this talk of making games fully downloadable/installable? There's a reason I play on consoles, and that sure as hell isn't it.

    *Exactly*.

    And I don't mean that in a sarcastic way.

    edit: although my primary problem with dlc is obviously the question of 'ownership' and what happens if your console gets borked/sold and you get a new one.

    Indeed. But not actually having a copy of the game in my hand is pretty much never going to happen for me with anything that costs more than 10, which I expect this to do.

    I'll probably download Warhawk at least, just because its new to me. I do quite like the idea though.

    Embrace Digital Delivery. I'd buy downloads all the time if they were competitively priced, im sick of having dvd cases sitting around everywhere, i just don't have the shelf space anymore!

    If by 'competitively priced' you mean sub-10 for new games, then I agree. \o/

    Screens on EG in case anyone hasn't seen them.

    Appear to use MGS4 engine...?

    I believe this is a stand alone game (i.e. not part of MGS4), ideally it would be a PSN title for less than 10, but somehow I doubt it...?

    We'll just have to wait and see (unfortunately)

    :(

    Yay, i was worried they might have not got all the cool moves and animations from MGS4, but they do, so the gameplay should be alot better than Subsistence and PO (which i enjoyed anyway)

    Can you imagine if this had the adaptive camo system?

    That could make it all sorts of fun online.

    shame it isn't included with mgs 4 :(
    Maybe they will do a bundle with two discs ala subsistence.

    They could do, but Subsistence was really a testing ground. They wanted to see how people like the camera mode and the online play.

    PO was an extension of this really.

    What i think they want to do with the full MGO is make a proper game out of it, as in make it really worth the 40 full retail price. This is what they have been working towards, and i think it will be abit special.

    I dunno, I love it on Live Arcade... Just being able to select these games from a menu without putting a disk. It means that I play games that I otherwise might not.. convenience factor.
    Yes, and it's not *too* bad at those price points. As soon as you get to the stage where the DLC that you have purchased is either coming in at 15+ a time levels, or that the total you've spent on it is quite high, then you're at risk.

    I'm liking this hacking opponents business.

    Maybe I've got the wrong idea, but it sounds like you can listen in on their conversations and stuff.
