News: There's No Need To Slice A Thing In Metal Gear Solid: Rising, Not Even A Water Melon

There's No Need To Slice A Thing In Metal Gear Solid: Rising, Not Even A Water Melon

Metal Gear Solid: Rising is a different type of Metal Gear game

It replaces seasoned protagonist Snake with Raiden, and switches tranquilizers for samurai swords. When all's said and done though, it is still a Metal Gear game. And that means that the stealth elements will remain in tact. In fact, according to Rising's producer, you'll be able to play through the game without ever needing to kill..

GamesCom 2010: Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow Hits Early October

Konami's dated their Dracula slaying foray into the God Of War genre, by whipping Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow with an October 5th and 7th release date for America and Europe respectively

Konami's added that the game will be presented with two DLC packs after release, both of which will further the game's narrative. Seems a bit dodgy to us, that. Still, Konami's touting that there's 20 hours of..

News: DanceDanceRevolution PS3 Includes Support For PlayStation Move, PlayStation Eye

DanceDanceRevolution PS3 Includes Support For PlayStation Move, PlayStation Eye

We already know that DanceDanceRevolution PS3 will include support for Sony's motion controller, the PlayStation Move

But now we know to what extent. At its core, DDR PS3 is simply that: DanceDanceRevolution on the PlayStation 3. The game sports a track-list of 45 songs (25 from Konami's in-house artists, 20 from mainstream artists) which seems sort of stingey to us. Konami's promising plenty of..

We're going to go out on a limb and guess what it all means: DanceDanceRevolution's coming to the PS3. The..

News: XBOX 360 Space Limitations Rear Their Ugly Head Again

XBOX 360 Space Limitations Rear Their Ugly Head Again

It's been a while since we last posted about the XBOX 360's space limitations

Last time, Capcom's Jun Takeuchi basically conceded that content had been cut from Lost Planet 2 (both XBOX 360 and PlayStation 3) to get the game on a DVD. It sucks, because those of us with PlayStation 3s are often suffering due to the 360's storage limitations. Ever played a game and wondered why the cut-scenes are so..

Konami Gunning For 3 Million Sales Of Peace Walker

A Nikkei interview (picked up by Andriasang) has revealed that Konami CEO, Fumiaki Tanaka, aims to sell about 3 million copies of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

Given that the game's a PSP title (where basically everyone is a pirate), that's a pretty high number. But then, this is a Metal Gear game that bares a passing resemblance to Monster Hunter... It should do fine, right? Well, according to..

Perhaps if we make enough noise that we want Castlevania: Harmony Of Despair on the PlayStation Network, Konami will listen

The XBOX Live Arcade platformer does appear to be being teased for the PSN. Konami's Koji Igarashi told Destructoid at E3 last week that, while his priority is the XBLA version, there might be the possibility of bringing the game to the PSN. If you want it, yell.

Kojima Exclusive News Purely Rumour & Speculation For Now

Either Kojima's trying to pull a David Jaffe, or there really is no "face melting" PlayStation 3 in the works

We're hoping for the former, but we're not holding our breath. According to the productions boss on the Metal Gear franchise, Kenichiro Imaizumi, suggestions of a big PlayStation 3 reveal from Kojima are purely rumour and speculation. The man wrote on Twitter: “‘I say it is just a rumour..

Report Insists Kojima Has A "Massive" PS3 Exclusive Up His Sleeve

Kojima was at E3 this week talking Metal Gear Solid: Rising and Nintendo 3DS

It was sad not to see him on the Sony stage this year, but according to a "senior US publishing source", there was a reason. Because Kojima's got a "massive PS3 exclusive" to unveil at the Tokyo Game Show later in the year. The report notes that the exclusive is so face-melting it will "own the..

Yay, Metal Gear Solid: Rising Might Get PlayStation Move Support After All

One thing we've been literally screaming for is PlayStation Move support for Kojima Productions' upcoming Metal Gear Solid: Rising

Based on the precise cutting mechanics of that game, it seems like the perfect fit for PlayStation Move's 1:1 control mechanics. According to the games producer, Shigenobu Matsuyama, “We [Kojima Productions] are – yes — experimenting on both [Move and Kinect].” Get..

Kojima: Sorry, Zone Of The Enders 3 Is On Hold

Deep down we were expecting some kind of Zone Of The Enders announcement at E3

Kojima had been talking about the franchise for a while, and it just felt like the right time to announce it. Sadly, in the absence of an announcement, it sounds like the game's been pushed back. “Regarding ZOE3, there’s been various things, so it’s been sort of pushed to the back,” he said in a UStream video..
