Konami's financial report yields interesting info

Konami of Japan's financial report, released yesterday, included news of major new titles including "a second and third original title to follow on our Metal Gear Solid series", IGN is reporting. Gamers are also promised a new Z.O.E. game. Hideo Kojima's most famous creation will be appearing on multiple platforms, as speculated by the mainstream press recently. The new games are titled Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance and Zone of the Enders 2: The Second Runner, the former appearing on PS2, Xbox and PC with the latter a PlayStation 2 exclusive. Sequels are promised as well as derivative titles, and with regards to the latter, IGN reports that Konami is considering using the MGS franchise as the basis for an online game. Obviously details on these titles are very thin on the ground, but this is great news for gamers everywhere. Except, by the looks of it, Cube owners, which would be a blow for Nintendo.
