Being a Japanese focused PlayStation Portable game, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker's co-operative mode was all about social multiplayer
But the game's conversion to PlayStation 3 — via the upcoming Metal Gear Solid HD Collection — will side-step the need to get up close and personal, re-routing the game's co-operative multiplayer through the PSN. Kojima confirmed the news earlier in the week,..
Let's be honest, we all knew it was probably coming
A report on JVN overnight is suggesting that Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker will be made available for PlayStation 3 via the recently announced PSP Remasters Series. Apparently the announcement will be made at E3, presumably kicking off a bumper evening of Sony and Kojima announcements. Presumably...
A forum post on Gamekult has been gathering traction across the 'net this morning
The supposed post details much of Sony's E3 announcement plans, as well as some specifics beyond. The leak hints that an NGP price and release date will be announced at E3, in addition to the device's real name. Seven first-party titles are set to be announced for the device alongside the reveal. In addition, Hideo..
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..

In this Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker advertisement, a young boy stalks two of his high-school peers in a Solid Snake-esque cardboard box
Finally cornering the duo, the boy asks if the pair would like to enter his box. Sadly, he's not talking to the rather pretty lady, but instead her male friend. See, the kid wants to play some Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. And so the final shot shows the two..
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker's had a pretty astounding debut week in Japan, shifting just under 500,000 units over the seven-day period
To be precise, the game shifted 425,000 units. DS game Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2 outsold it by some 200,000 units - but it's still a staggering performance for the PSP's sneak 'em up. Super Street Fighter IV came in at the third on the Japanese software..
Konami's been gauging interest as to whether fans would like to see the upcoming Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker make the jump to the Playstation 3, via PSN digital download
The jump would apparently bring online multiplayer to Peace Walker, perhaps allowing for the co-operative missions to be played across the 'net. The subject was approached during...
Worried about the quality of a mainline Playstation Portable developed Metal Gear Solid game? Erm, don't
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker just nabbed a 40/40 in the Japanese gaming Bible Famitsu. That's a perfect score whichever way you look at it. The last game to score 40/40 in Famitsu was New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Metal Gear Solid 3 scored exactly one point less, hitting 39/40. Kojima's done it..

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker may be bringing real-life products such as Doritos and Mountain Dew into video games, but manufacturer UNIQLO are planning on bringing video games into real-life
This set of exclusive Peace Walker themed shirts will be available from April 26th. However, if you head to the UNIQLO store on London's Oxford Street on June 19th, Hideo Kojima and <span>lead artist..
Big games demand big attention, and in all honesty, there's nothing bigger on the PSP this year than Kojima Production's Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
Hence, American retailer are going whole hog with a specially crafted bundle for the game. The "Big Boss" bundle - which will be sold exclusively at US retailer GameStop in addition to the previously announced "Spirited Green"..
We're getting the distinct impression that Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker's going to be a rather large game
Well, it's going to have to be anyway. Up to this point we've seen about an hour's worth of footage from the game through continuous trailer releases from Kojima Productions. Here's another 8-minute epic from them. Talk about mindshare.
Mountain Dew's not the only product placement in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker; players will happen upon Doritos, Pepsi Nex, Axe Deodrant, Sony Walkman, Famitsu and Dengeki magazines and Uniqlo t-shirts
Kojima Productions' released yet another video for their upcoming Playstation Portable title, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
This trailer details the game's pretty expansive cast. Man, the game looks amazing for a PSP title. Kojima announced this morning that Peace Walker would feature Monster Hunter crossover content.
We told you this morning about Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker's crossover content with Capcom's Monster Hunter franchise
The results look a bit like this, thanks to screens released by Famitsu. Yeah - we know, it looks awesome.</em>
Kojima's revealed his "big announcement" regarding Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, that he teased late last week
That is, Snake will happen upon the world of Monster Hunter in his latest outing. The unusual, but totally awesome crossover, will see Snake take on a range of monsters common in Capcom's Monster Hunter series. There'll even be a cameo from the series' mascot Felyne. Gah Kojima, you are..
Hideo Kojima has hinted that a big Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker announcement is due on Wednesday
The man responsible for Metal Gear's madness Tweeted: "On Wednesday, there will be a big Peace Walker announcement. I don't think you can understand the enjoyment of Peace Walker until you've played it, but I believe you'll feel a hint of sorts about 'where is it a new Metal?'." We could..
Half of the "humour" in this video goes right over our head
But we do get the Assassin's Creed piss-taking. That's funny. We guess. Sort of. Maybe? Haha - surgical masks. Sigh. <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="468" height="260"..
Not an April Fools' Day joke we're 'fraid
CVG's confirmed that Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker will receive a month-long delay here in the UK, hitting shelves on June 18th as opposed to the originally planned date of May 28th. Sorry folks, but that's the way the cookie crumbles.
Konami's continuing to release big fat chunks of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker gameplay, and this latest video focuses on a co-op boss battle against an angry helicopter
Y'know - when GiantBomb.com claimed helicopters were evil, we think they were onto something. There's not a game goes by that doesn't seem to include a helicopter as some kind of boss fight.
If you're in Japan, you might want to grab yourself some Mountain Dew
Why? Because the cans are being branded with Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker character art. Naturally, the colloboration works two ways - as Mountain Dew is set to make an appearance in Peace Walker. It'll appear as an in-game item. We love it when games do that. [Pic: Andriasang]
Stop what you're doing
The latest trailer for Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is balls-to-the-wall amazing. It features some startlingly in-your-face J-pop and ridiculously pretty Playstation Portable visuals. The game's not far off now, thus you should probably go buy Sony's portably system if you don't already have one. You're going to need a PSP for this.
After last week's 10-minute epic look at Konami's Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, we didn't think there'd be a new video for some time
How wrong we were. Hey, how do you fancy another ten minutes of gameplay? You do. Well - cool beans then. Press the play button and digest.
Konami's announced that Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker will hit the American PSPs on June 8th
This follows the announcement of yesterday's Peace Walker hardware bundle, which incidentally will be released on the same day. We're excited. Are you, valued reader?
Looks like SCEA are going to give Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker a pretty ample push, announcing that the PSP title will get a special bundle
The bundle is set to include a Green PSP-3000, the game on UMD, a Playstation Network movie voucher, and a 2GB pro-duo memory stick for $199.99. Sounds like an excellent deal. Peace Walker will also release for PSPgo. Worry not!
Because it's a PSP title, many people are writing off Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker as some kind of spin-off saga
Not true, Hideo Kojima has been keen to emphasise over and over, this is the real deal. Over on Twitter, the Kojima Productions head honcho wrote:PW is going to be released as a portable game, but it is a TRUE MGS game in the saga, not a spin-off. Of course, we have put a lot of..
Konami's just dropped a nine-minute long look at the upcoming PSP foray into the Metal Gear franchise, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
There's tons of new stuff to see here that wasn't included in the recent demo. Well worth checking out (if you have the time!). Apparently, more videos are planned.
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is a Playstation Portable title
It has no "number". But apparently there was a time when the game did. Look at this logo. It's an old one that was posted on Kojima Productions' developers blog by Jiro Oishi. It says "Metal Gear Solid 5" on it. As we all know, the number was dropped before the E3 reveal. But if you ever wanted more proof that -..
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker has been delayed
Director Hideo Kojima is pretty gutted about that. He wrote on his blog:I always preach to the staff, You must not have a delay after a release date has been announced. There is no greater crime as a game developer.Official announcement of a release date is nothing less than a promise to fans and business partners. In other words, a release..
Konami's announced that Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker has been pushed back a month in Japan
The game was originally due on March 18th in the country, but it'll now land on April 29th. That delay, however, will not affect the Western release in May.
When you've got an IP as rich as the Metal Gear universe, it surprises me that anyone truly understands the fiction
We guess though, if anyone has a semblance of an idea about what's going on - it would be creator Hideo Kojima. Thus it's no surprise to hear Kojima tell Official Playstation Magazine that, "Not so many ideas come from the other staff." In fact, the video game legend..
Only serving to fuel our obsession with Asian pop-music, Nana Mizuki - the voice of the Costa Rican chick Paz Ortega Andrade in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker - has topped the Japanese pop charts with Phantom Minds
The single moved 54,000 copies last week. It's like a breakneck ballad with an all-over-the-place bassline and lots of filtered drum fills. Hear it after the jump.
If you have any interest in the Metal Gear Solid franchise, you'd flit yourself over to Joystiq right now
Why? Because they have a host of new screens and artwork from upcoming PSP title Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. The screens look awesome (man, is it a PSP game, really?), but dude, some of the artwork is phenomonal too. Check it here.
So after a May 28th date for Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker was announced for the UK, it only seemed logical that the USA would get it a few days prior on May 25th
Which is exactly what Konami have announced. That's all really. Nothing more to see here.
Konami has announced that the upcoming PSP Metal Gear Solid title, Peace Walker, will land on the PSP May 28th next year in the UK
Metal Gear Solid fans should prepare themselves for the next chapter of Snakes story, writes Kojima-san himself in the PR. [The game] will answer many of the series unanswered questions and showcase a different, more collaborative side to tactical espionage..
The worst thing about Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker at the moment is that it makes no sense at all
Obviously, we chortle. We've only played a Japanese demo so, kinda expect things to be in Japanese. Thanfully, Kojima and his team are working on bringing us an English demo however. According to a Kojima Productions podcast, it's actually already in...
Kojima's official blog has brought word that there is another Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker demo headed to the Japanese PSN this Sunday, November 1st
It'll be a tweaked version of the demo that was playable on Konami's Tokyo Game Show booth. Kojima Productions have modified the controls based on player feedback, adding a third control scheme on top...
Having now played Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, we thought the controls were pretty good
Certainly not ideal - what PSP games are? - but pretty passable. Kojima though, ever the perfectionist, has listened closely to player feedback from the recent Tokyo Game Show and is ready to tweak. Big time. At the TGS demo there were two control types available - Shooter and Action. Kojima Productions are..
We don't even know why you've stopped to read what we have to say about this
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is a game that demands your attention with every trailer released. This trailer is no different. In this 9 minute long epic, Hideo Kojima showcases exactly why Peace Walker is billed as the natural progression from Metal Gear Solid 4. It's simply breath-taking in every way. If you watch..
So, we're going to assume if you're sitting here reading this that you're not at TGS
Thus, you're probably yet to check out Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker's latest demo right? Worry not, IGN have your back. All you need to do is download the file from their website and copy it across to your PSP's "Game" folder. Make sure you have the latest firmware etc. Sorted! Whaddaya think?
Japanese gaming bible Famitsu want you to know about a few faces other than Snake that will appear in the upcoming PSP title Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
Amongst the revealed faces are Amanda, Huey, Chico, Coldman, Strangelove, Galvez, Cecile, Paz, and, most notably, Master Miller from Metal Gear 2. Even more interestingly, Famitsu detailed some of the co-op mechanics seen in the game. When..
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"...
Ever noticed anything frosty between Kojima's Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker and Metal Gear Solid: Rising projects? Kojima-san himself has been quick to describe Peace Walker as a true sequel in the past
And it seems the actual teams within Kojima Productions are not getting on too great regarding the projects either. In an exclusive interview with GamePro, Hdeo Kojima stated that the two teams..
Hideo Kojima has stated that Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker will be a full sequel, so full of content it will take "hundreds of hours to complete"
"The main team from MGS4 is participating in the development of this title and I am involved in all aspects of the game, ranging from design, direction and scenario writing," Kojima writes in the latest issue of Konami's internal magazine On..
It's often said that if a writer is not sure of his fiction, how can those reading it know better? This statement rings true with Metal Gear Solid
Despite our deep love for the franchise (and the surprisingly helpful Metal Gear Solid Database) we still find the intricacies of the saga baffling. That's ok though, because Kojima himself doesn't know much more. When interviewed by Eurogamer he..
Prepare yourself for 9 minutes of Snake-to-the-power-of-four action
This trailer is up there with Kojima's best. Get some pop-corn. Put it in the microwave. Turn the microwave on for a bit. Cover it in salt. Add some butter while it's still warm. Sit back. And press play. Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker deserves that kind of attention.
Hideo Kojima is treating the PSP's Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker as Metal Gear Solid 5
Despite the drop in hardware possibilities Kojima reckons the team working on it are "aiming for PS3 quality because they were creating MGS4 on the PS3 not too long ago". Kojima did not comment on how Peace Walker's multiplayer would work but he has...
