    After Grand Turismo 5 Prologue, I am leery of buying any pre-game game. Looking for lots of opinions on value for this one.

    • Flawless

      definitely not worth the $30 and to think up until 2 weeks ago they were planning on charging $40 for this LOL.

      toys r us is having a deal to get a $10 gift card if you buy it plus theres a 10% coupon that also works so it comes to $27 and a $10 gift card if you do decide to buy it anyway.

      • Allan

        Which ends up working out to almost exactly $1 per minute of gameplay! lol. Sorry, couldn’t resist.

  • Jose Manuel Sanchez

    Con someone confirm that does it includes the Raiden gameplay bonus? :/

    • Senses Failed

      Yeah we (xbox one owners) get the raiden mission
      Think you have to unlock it by completing stuff mind!

      • Jose Manuel Sanchez

        Thank you!

  • http://photovoltaik.bandcamp.com/ Ujn Hunter

    Can’t wait! Both my Xbox 360 & PS4 versions are coming in the post today! Woo!

  • DaeJim

    Any idea when it’s available in France or Ireland? (digital)

  • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

    it was once said that you can run the game in 2 hours. I wonder if it’s true or not so much anymore. For a 30$ game that is definitly being release to fund the next game, it would be quite pathetic

    • KesMonkey

      The game can be finished in 18 minutes.

      • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

        thanks man, you made me save 30$, that’s 5 beer !

  • Jaymoon

    Money well spent(?) for 20 minutes of fun… CVG_News on Twitter posted a video of them beating it in 18mins.

    • Allan

      The MGS games have always been strange. I’ve never been sure if it’s a cultural difference, something we westerner’s don’t understand, or what. But I’ve never been able to figure out why people are so gaga over this soap opera. Reading the plot summary had my eyes rolling.

      • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

        Speak for yourself. Mgs has been huge in the west so I have no idea where that retarded comment even comes from. I’ve been following the mgs story since I was like 13 years old and absolutely love the lore surrounding it as do millions and millions of others.

        • Allan

          Come on man. Solid Snake? Big Boss? Raiden wears high heels for pete’s sake!

          • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

            All 3 of those characters are badass. You’ve clearly never taken the time to get into the games.

          • Allan

            I haven’t. Wasn’t my thing. And definitely not how I’d define the characters. But that’s me.

          • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

            Can’t even take your opinion seriously then.. since it isn’t really an educated opinion at all. I’ve never played world of war craft but I don’t have an opinion of whether it’s good or not because I haven’t played it and can’t really say.. kind of the same thing.

          • Allan

            I have played it. I played through all of MGS2. And I’ve seen enough of the others, through reviews and internet blog posts to see that the story and themes of the series is relatively the same throughout. I could tell 3/4 of the way through the one I did play that they had no clear idea on how to tell a cohesive story. So I avoided the rest. I don’t need to taste every variation of Apple pie to know that I don’t like Apple pie.

      • Disturbed_Court_Jester

        Don’t see nothing strange about the code names if that’s what you mean,
        how are they any stranger than COD using code names like Soap, Roach or Ghost for their characters, But yeah Everything about the character Raiden is pretty weird. I think a lot of westerners are into MGS and look how many western gamers are into Mario games, a plumber going around stomping turtles, collecting stars and eating mushrooms, that seems way stranger to me.

        • Allan

          Don’t you be diss’n Mario yo.

  • Senses Failed

    Guys for some reason i can’t link to that page (i’m in uk)
    What’s the digital price so i can work out ms’s conversion rate for me
    Cheers

    • Gazza!!!

      It doesn’t show the price in my experience until its available and seeing as we are in the uk it won’t be up till Friday sometime. Any way it will be £29.99 which has been confirmed.

      • evilfangs .

        £29.99 – $30, yep that sounds about right for Microsoft’s exchange rate.

        • Senses Failed

          Sad but true

      • Senses Failed

        Confirmed where? Cheers

        • Gazza!!!

          Various sites. Can’t post links here as it will be moderated then deleted but just search for the uk digital price of the game.

  • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

    Just sunk my teeth into the xbox one version about 20 minutes ago and I’m loving it! Graphics are incredible and the gameplay is sick. I picked up the ps4 version as well for a graphic comparison.. After I finish with this I will check it out!

    • Beano

      This paid advertisement is brought to you by BLAM-O baked beans

      • Mike P.

        So anyone that doesn’t have the same opinion of you is a “paid advertiser?” That’s some solid logic you have there.

        • Beano

          Give me a break. That guy is gushing from the pants over this over-priced, over-rated game. Most people would be less excited to meet Jesus.

          • Guest

          • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

            I’m gushing? Wow that’s a new one. I posted on here to give people some context as to what the game actually is rather than what ranting idiots say from what they heard on the Internet. I guess it being overpriced is subjective isn’t it? If you enjoy it and love metal gear then it’s worth the money isn’t it? Grow up.

          • Allan

            I think for the most part, fans of MGS will enjoy this. But people those who weren’t terribly interested with the predecessors might want to to wait for MGS5 before seeing if the game has changed to their liking.

          • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

            I totally agree. The game mechanics have been improved incredibly… if the Phantom pain is more of this only with 60ish + hours of gameplay I think it’s going to be amazing. One of the first games that are cross gen developed that actually does look a lot better on the new systems. I was so excited for watch dogs.. and now it’s starting to look like they really dumbed it down for the old consoles

          • Beano

            You were gushing, but I’ll let you off the hook if you can give me a good reason why you have two versions of the game. Did you buy both?

          • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

            Oh gee will you really let me off the hook? Get over yourself clown. Yes I bought both versions of the game. Thankfully 30 dollars is not a lot of money to me… I’m a movie and game collector and since I have every metal gear game made to date and they’re all on Sony consoles I wanted this one as well. I also wanted to see for myself if there was a big difference in the graphics.. which there is not by the way.

      • Nick Peck

        And the idiot award goes too….. BEAN-O. congrats.

    • Allan

      From what I saw it was looking like Kojima’s group focused on the PS4 and just got the XB1 version “working”. Screenshot comparisons Konima did last month show it uses the same low def assets as the last gen, even runs at the same resolution, just faster.

      • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

        Most definitely not true. It looks incredible on xbox one.

        • Allan

          I dunno man, it’s 720p first off. I know resolution isn’t everything, but at 75 inches, that begins to be a problem. Some PS4 fanboys picked apart the comparison vid and found a bunch of cases where the XB1 was using the low res textures. I’ll see if I can find it. But also the PS4 did get other attention. The weather system for one.

          • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

            The weather system ? Is fully working on my Xbox copy. The rain looks extremely real. I’m going to fire up my ps4 and try that version in a little bit so I’ll have a definitive answer as to whether it looks much better but I’m playing the game right now as we speak, and I can say for sure that I have not found any low res textures and the game looks beautiful.

          • Allan

            PS4 version contains a thing they’re calling “dynamic atmosphere simulation”. I call it fancy random clouds. In any case, they made it exclusive.

          • Allan

            I don’t think this is a case of the XB1′s abilities. This looks like a case of someone who favors the PS4 putting a lot of extra attention on that platform

      • Senses Failed

        C’mon man, you gotta try harder! This is 2014, there’s this thing called the internet and twitch, we can see the game being played on xbox one. So a comment about it looking poor on xbox one from someone who a) doesn’t own an xbox one and b) hasn’t seen the xbox one version running is kinda irrelevant.. Sorry

        • Allan

          It doesn’t look terrible, but the developer put extra attention into the ps4 version. It runs at a 1080 instead of 720. Has some sky simulation thing, and the image I posted of comparing the textures is in moderation limbo, so not sure how to show you.

          And I do own an xb1. I love my xb1. I just don’t like the mgs games, and I don’t like developers targeting their resources to one system on what is supposed to be a cross platform game.

          • Allan

            Here, let’s try this again:

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVr5Cc2ovbA The saying of the truth

    This game is a huge flop !
    A priced demo !!

    • Senses Failed

      Well that’s just your opinion man :)

  • Killz

    Ill wait until its free or bundled with MGSV.

  • Guest

    I hope everyone who pays for this demo gets exactly what they deserve.

    • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

      An awesome game? Cuz that’s what I got when I paid for it..

      • usrev

        you posted this 4 hours ago, I guess you 100%ed the game 2 times now.

        • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

          Not even close.. I have 3 hours into the game so far and am sitting at 16% completion.

          • Some Person

            99% of that 3 hours has been spent staring at the menu screen and mullet shadow… oh wait, the mullet’s shadow has been removed.

  • KesMonkey

    I hope that everyone who pays for this demo gets exactly what they deserve.

    • Mike P.

      You okay dude? You’ve made a couple of comments on here getting very upset over this game. Not sure your “threat” above is really considered good conversation.

  • usrev

    yea I’ll wait till this is $5. the main story is 20 minutes long. so i’m guessing the side missions throw in another hour tops. phantom pain looks amazing but this looks like a stupid cash in

  • EldritchWarlord

    Why does this game exist and why isn’t it called “Grounds Zero”? In “ground zero” zero is an adjective, not the noun.
    More importantly though it’s essentially a brief demo for only half off the price of a full game!

    • Allan

      Same reason they have characters named Solid Snake, Big Boss and Liquid Snake. What sounds cool in Japanese doesn’t quite translate with the same “umph” into the english language and north american culture.

      • Dylan

        Snake Plisskin was a pretty badass American hero…

        • Allan

          Dammit. I’m trying of an escape from new york catch phrase and I’m coming up blank.

          • Dylan

            “I thought you’d be taller”?

            “Call me Snake.”

            “‘I thought you were dead Snake…’
            ‘Yeah, you and everybody else!’

            “I don’t give an (eff) about your war… or your president.”

          • Allan

            ^ this

          • evilfangs .

            “Pissken? Pissken, what are you doing?”

            “Playing with myself! I’m going in”

            “You going to kill me, Snake?”

            “Not now, I’m too tired”
            ….
            “Maybe later”

  • Beano

    The Metal Gear series is like Snake’s face: tired, all messed up, and probably not far off from eternal sleep.

  • Gazza!!!

    As good as this looks I just can’t get pas the £29.99 asking price for a 18 minute main story at its quickest, probably 2 hours for a first playthrough. To top it off to get a decent 8-10 hours out of it I need to replay the additional missions over and over.

    • Nick King

      £23 from Amazon and ShopTo at the moment. Can’t wait to see what the rip off price for the digital version is going to be!

      • Gazza!!!

        £29.99 is the digital price.

      • Black_Power_Bauer

        29.99 dollar or euros, for the next 6 years until it hits the sales rotation for another year

  • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

    I just finished the first main mission. It took me 70 minutes and I ended up with a B ranking. I wasn’t rushing nor was I stopping to explore.. I pretty much just went from objective to objective. Now there are 4 more missions to complete plus I believe the xbox ones exclusive raiden mission. There is definitely a ton of replay value in the game.

  • warrenbedoya

    I thought they announced that the digital version of this game would only be $20? That the disc version would be $30.

    • Senses Failed

      $20 last gen
      $30 current gen

      • Cody

        Psh, unless they are planning on an original xbox release, you are being far too kind to refer to the one as “current gen”. Let’s save that for when we see something new and impressive.

    • Eddie

      yeah, on the 360 games on demands it is 20 bucks and at walmart its 30 bucks and on the xbox one console its 30 bucks and at walmart its 30 bucks as well. but still its worth the buy anyway if people are truly a metal gear solid fan like i am. they will buy the game regardless like im going to real soon.

  • Byyys

    Does the 360 support 500gig Hard drives?

    • Arcona

      nah. I connected a 320GB but the max you can set as storage for the 360 is 32GB.. sucks. they limit it on purpose to force you to buy one of their overpriced internal ones…

      • Cookies!

        Not all that over priced, if you really think about it, its about 110 to 130 for the 320 gb Hard drive, thats about 30-40 something cents/ gb. I do understand price usually goes down the more storage space per unit but 32 gb flash drives still run 15 to 20 dollars, so its about 50-70 cents/ gb, in this sense the price is valid.

    • Does Not Equal

      No.

  • http://people.ign.com/ltsjoemama ltsJoeMama

    Some guy beat this game in 10 minutes. He skipped the side missions and cut scenes, but still. $30 for a 2 hour game is ridiculous.

    • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

      You can’t skip the side missions.. they don’t become available until you beat the main story mission. I have over 3 hours in so far and still haven’t touched 3 of the side missions. And I can’t wait to run through them again to get an S ranking. I just got my first S ranking, rescuing a high value target only to find out it was hideo kojima haha he put himself into the game.

      • Senses Failed

        He was in peace walker too, hiding away sheepishly in a truck :) where was that scoundrel this time?

        • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

          Haha I finished a side mission with an S ranking where I had to rescue a HVT and when I got in the chopper with him it ended up being kojima and he said something about doing it perfectly..so I’m guessing the only way to see him is if you get the S ranking on the mission

      • VegaDD

        But its a fact that someone has beat the game in 10 mins google it.

      • Jedi Dna

        I want to play this game only to shoot him!

        • Mr&Mrs Ninja

          Thanx for the idea!

  • http://www.youtube.com/SabzilaTV SabzilaTV

    is this a new trend to charge for glorified demos. Feels like they’re taking advantage of loyal metal gear fans to squeeze some extra money out.

    • Jedi Dna

      People must be out of their minds to buy this.
      Greedy japanese…

  • Arcona

    Hope they put a demo up for this demo… :)

    • Monstrous Tard

      Wont happen, they would be allowing us to play 50% of the game if they did.

      • Gazza!!!

        I think you may have misread what he said. Either that or it was edited.

        • Massamo

          this is pretty much a demo of The Phantom Pain

    spoiler: the ending is beyond horrible especially for those who played peace walker. wicked japanese :/

  • digitallife

    First xbox one games with gold offering? LOL. Was curious about the game but then heard how short it was…no thank you.

      God I love that game. The nostalgia is almost too much lol.. really didn’t age well though lol but its worth it just for the amazing story

  • slasaru

    I would boycott this game. Crappy quality. Its clear that the difference paid by the S company

  • bill

    played it last night, my gf asked why does some of it sound like a mix between 24 and all your base… anyway, i enjoyed it, have to go through the side missions now. I passed with a d because i killed everyone and blew everything up…lol

    • Mr&Mrs Ninja

      I’m mad with the ratings system! I went thru heck to get C! A freakin “C”! Hope the main game does mot have this cuz i’m gonna have a LOT of Ds.

  • Some Person

    Boycott Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain! A few years ago we had another game put it’s demo up for sale. That game was Dead Rising: Case Zero. It had one area to explore complete with side missions. It retailed for $5 USD–not anywhere near $30–and it was still insane’s over-priced (as it was a demo). The saddest part? It still featured more game play than 8 minutes–run time for the main “story” in Ground Zeroes” for 1/6th the price.

    • Professor Oak

      Boycott Ground Zeros, why not just ignore it and go fill this pokedex so I can bang your mom…. I mean learn more about pokemon.

      • Mr&Mrs Ninja

        Man WTF?! LOL!

        What?? I used to get the best out of life. And I want to play games with beautiful graphics. And you, my dear Billyboy, dont understand this

        • Kev Curtis

          If you think gaming is all about graphics & 1080p/60fps then you are missing out on many legendary games! Clearly not getting the best out of life if that’s the case….

          If its graphics or bust you are very shallow. Guess you dig only blondes with blue eyes and massive fake tits too.

          • http://www.youtube.com/SabzilaTV SabzilaTV

            Very well said.

          • Xenokai

            The whole resolution argument will eventually fade. It use to be that the other system had streaming but now the X1 does and does it even better. Also both systems have games that cant do 1080p. Battlefield 4 isnt 1080p on either consoles.

          • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

            Haha you just equated the ps4 with a blond with blue eyes and fake tits. You win the Internet today my friend.

            LOL! Well played Mr. Curtis…. WELL PLAYED!

          • Michael S.

            720p 30fps Tomb Raider is not legendary sir. Thank you.

        • Allan

          Yeah it’s too bad that Kojima’s group focused only on the PS4 version, relegating all other builds to simple bad ports.

          • Michael S.

            That should tell you something Allan….

          • Allan

            Just tells me that Kojima favors Sony, he’s never been a big MS dev. No surprises here.

        • Killz

          Looks like you need a PC….

      • Scott Daylor

        Ignore him. He’s just a simple minded Sony fanboy who is under the delusion that native resolution is the only thing that makes graphics. Stuff like polygons displayed, and frame rates don’t exist.

        • Mr&Mrs Ninja

          FINALLY! Someone that understands the science behind the game! It looks the same to me on both systems. (Yea we own both) And if anyone CARES to know… THE GAME IS AWESOME! It’s short, yes but it’s divided into separate missions on a map about the size of dead rising 1. If you’re good you should maybe take about 1 hr 30 min on each mission. So it should be almost the same length as COD Ghost SP campaign.

          • Mr&Mrs Ninja

            Hope that helps if anyone was thinking about picking it up. Just sell it on ebay after you get all the achievements and get the hidden goodies for Phantom Pain!

      • Black_Power_Bauer

        because he is defending a console on the internet? oh wait…

    • http://www.youtube.com/SabzilaTV SabzilaTV

      720p was last gen on consoles with only 512megs of ram and 6 times less power. Being an xb1 owner it puzzles me whats holding it back? game developers being lazy or is the xb1 the ps3 of this generation.

    • Michael S.

      Beautiful 1080p on PS4….Join the darkside!

  • Riddick Snipes

    Anyone annoyed of titanfall 360′s second delay?

      • Killz

        Pretty sure delaying a game wont make people upgrade to X1…..

      Yep, but if it is to supply a better product, i will not complain

    • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

      Haha that sucks dude. You gotta just break and get the xbox one. Haha I’m kidding I know that must be blasphemy for your ears. But really it’s pretty sweet on xb1 I’m definitely interested to see if they can pull it off on the 360

    • Michael S.

      OR. Wait for TF2 on PS4. That is exactly what I am doing. MS can stick it.

    Is the realtime feature available on the Xbox one?

  • itsjustme

    I rented the game for a day, and it’s fun. I spent a lot of time interrogating enemies and exploring. I kept getting “E” rankings, though. I only messed around with a couple side missions.

    Just to warn people this is shorter then alot of demo’s ive played. First play took 50 mins with me taking my time. It plays alot like peace walker in how the missions are layed out. Not really a bad thing just not alot of content in this package.
