  • The next 'Metal Gear' is...


    ...for the iPhone?



    Source: Wii @ Everyday: Famitsu 20081219

    The scans are for this month's Famitsu (japanese mag if the picture didn't made it obvious) show Metal Gear on the iPhone. The story seems to be based around MGS4 but aside from this scan there's no more info.

    What's really curious about this is that it's coming on the iPhone rather than a PSP of all places.

    EDIT: it is now OFFICIAL! Holy crap MGS on the iPhone.

The controls are horrible not to mention the frame rates make me want to rip the hair out of my head.

      I love the iPhone but I have come to terms that it is not a gaming device for First Person Shooters.
      I liked BIA's controls and it ran great on my phone. *shrugs* I think MGS will be really good.

      SWEEEEEEET. But to the best of my knowledge, Hideo Kojima stated that he wouldn't be doing any more metal gears, that the story was done. So this seems to me kind of like all the FFVII stuff for the japanese phones that came out, just a bunch of junk trying to use the name of an awesome game to get sales... Oh well, here's to hoping for good things!

      Most of the games although they are very good are lacking in graphic quality but how limited is the iPhone at the moment?

      Thanks.

      actually I saw on g4tv that it wasn't going to be a stealth game, but more of a FPS and all the player has to do is aim and shoot, that snake was going to move by himself.

      I still think this is pretty cool. I luv MGS! and I love iPhone! perfect combination if u ask me

      I don't find it that strange to put it on the iPhone... fewer textures, less work on details, etc. on an iphone version, plus its an untapped market for them. I don;t believe the dev team is owned by Sony anyway is it?

      Really psyched about this. Good story Noodle Boy.. almost good enough for me to forgive you for being a jerk. I will for today.

      As other users commented, I'm concerned that Kojima announced the MGS story as being over (and from the ending of MGS4 it's pretty obvious that it is). However, I guess they could always fill in gaps between plotlines in previous games or something.. either way looking forward to it DDR and Silent Hill too.
