With Metal Gear Solid: Rising set to gets its big coming out party at next month's VGAs, series creator Hideo Kojima has told Official PlayStation Magazine that series veterans might not initially fall in love with the game's new direction
If somebody thinks I love Snake and just really wants traditional stealth gameplay and that experience, then it may be hard to get into Rising, he told..
To be fair, the easiest way to complete Konami's Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is to add in MGS4 and a copy of the original PlayStation classic
You can make the package sweeter by tossing it all in a steel tin and saying, "Seventy quid, please." And that's pretty much exactly what Zavvi has done. The Metal Gear Solid Ultimate HD Collection is limited to just 4,000 copies worldwide, and..
Hideo Kojima has ruled out and confirmed a series of rumours in a quick-fire interview on the latest Kojima Productions podcast

.. Well, kudos to Konami for supporting their game we suppose. We'd forgotten Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots even had an online component, but here's a new patch for that very mode. The update's able to detect "fraudulent" connections which may slow the game down. Of course, the bigger question is whether anyone's actually still playing Metal Gear Online. Konami patch notes:..
Metal Gear Solid 4 pre-dated trophies
Given its status as one of the best games in the PlayStation 3's library, many fans have been clamouring for a trophy update ever since Sony announced the rewards system. Despite frequent reports to the contrary, Metal Gear Solid 4 has never received trophies. That could be about to change. PlayStation LifeStyle's snapped a photo of the Greatest Hits edition of..
What's the one thing you've always wanted in Metal Gear Solid 4? Trophies, right
Yeah, us too. 3D support would just be the icing on the cake, right? Totally. Well it nearly happened. In fact, agonisingly Kojima's revealed that he "wanted" to release a "Complete" version of the title. Sadly, he just doesn't have the time. We know. I wanted to make a Complete Version with..
How many Playstation 3 systems are there out in the Japanese wilderness? It's a question we often ask ourselves

What do you do if you have pre-launch copy of 3D Dot Game Heroes
Duhhh, the answer's obvious - recreate Metal Gear Solid 4's protagonist, Old Snake, in the character editor of course. You guys are so slow.
The third-person shooter-esque controls from Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots were quite a step-forward for the franchise
But Kojima still wants to give players a choice between the new and the traditional with the upcoming PSP title Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. In the game, players will be able to pick between the "action"...
If you've been waiting on picking up Metal Gear Solid 4, MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, Resistance 2 and Killzone 2 then perhaps it's time you picked them up
They've just gone platinum, i.e. cheap. All four titles can now be bought in garish packaging for £19.99. If you've just jumped into the world of Playstation 3 via the recent price drop, we actually recommend you buy all four games.

You know what Metal Gear Online has been missing? Bikinis
Thank goodness Kojima-san and his Konami crew have considered it worthwhile to add such neccessities to the game as way of a celebration for its first birthday. You'll need the GENE update to download the bikinis. Check them in action after the jump. Big bums indeed.
What better way to spend your time in Metal Gear Online than racing
The race mission will have two teams running through checkpoints after tracking down their frog and duck KEROTAN and GA-KO items (seriously!). Presumably the match is won by the team who passes through enough checkpoints mascot in hand. It's a pretty novel mode for a shooter. The Patriot perk will also be offered to the week's best..

A patch for LittleBigPlanet today made the game infinitely better
It improves the search options of the user created levels which previously weren't up to much. In the past you would login to LittleBigPlanet only to see the same levels over and over. Not anymore. Now you can search by "Busiest", "Most Hearted" and "Highest Rated". This basically means that a bunch of..
