Phew, talk about quiet Saturday evenings
A brand new trailer for Metal Gear Solid: Rising has leaked online ahead of its expected debut during the VGAs. You could say, Metal Gear's back with a vengeance — or revengeance, huh?

One day, someone will write a book about the development of Metal Gear Solid: Rising
The game — which is set to get a re-announcement in the next issue of Official PlayStation Magazine — has been missing in action for a good couple of years now. And the plot continues to thicken.

After months of silence, Konami is finally preparing to re-announce Metal Gear Solid: Rising
The game was last seen at E3 a couple of years ago — but hope of a re-reveal emerged late last month when the UK edition of the Official PlayStation Magazine teased some form of announcement. "The truth about Metal Gear Solid: Rising will finally be revealed at the 2011 VGAs by Hideo Kojima,"..
The British arm of the Official PlayStation Magazine is teasing something big
And stealthy. In fact editor Ben Wilson can't seem to hold his excitement about the feature, closing his editor's note with the comments: "I promise you that next month is an equally significant issue in our history. I desperately want to say more, but really mustnt. Other than this: turn to page 81 for a stealthy..

Something fishy is afoot
Metal Gear Solid: Rising is all about series-punchbag-come-series-badass Raiden. But the character's voice actor doesn't know a thing about the game. I am completely in the dark. I have no answers. I have no idea, a flustered Quinton Flynn told TheGamingLiberty in an interview, explaining that he'd not been contacted by Konami nor Kojima Productions about the game. I..
Metal Gear Solid: Rising was originally due next year
Unfortunately, that's no longer the case. Kotaku reports that the game's been pushed back into 2012.

The hook is the game's "precision..
Sony's confirmed that Metal Gear Solid: Rising will be playable in full stereoscopic 3D on the PlayStation 3
It should make the art of melon slicing every inch more exciting with the added dimension. Now all we need is a PlayStation Move announcement. How about it Kojima?
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..

With E3 speculation reaching an all-time high (we're finding it hard to keep our excitement for both E3 and the World Cup in check), the blogosphere's literally bulging with rumours of megaton-esque announcements from every corner of the industry.

I know Sony won't pay for exclusives and I think that's admirable
After all, would I prefer Grand Theft Auto IV DLC exclusivity for 12 months, or a whole new Wipeout game? The $50million Microsoft paid for that GTA DLC is probably in a similar ball-park to what would be spent on a mid-large PSN release (perhaps less) and thus, absolutely I'd take...
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

Speaking in Famitsu, Kojima describes Peace Walker as "his personal MGS5" and that the MGS4 team are working on it. But what of Metal Gear Solid Rising? Kojima bills it as "a..
The biggest question on our lips since the multi-platform announcement of Metal Gear Solid: Rising has been: how will the addition of a platform skew the output? We know the XBOX is a fine system, but it also lack disc and definite hard-drive space -- something that's had us pondering whether MGS:R will end up being a lesser product than its older brother
In Kojima Production's latest podcast they..
Peter Dille, Sony's head of marketing for the US, has claimed he's "looking forward to playing Metal Gear Solid Rising on the Playstation 3
" When asked if the game would come out on the same day as the 360 he responded "yes, that's correct.""I think the difference between our approach in our press conference and our competitors' is that our focus is on exclusive content,"..
Hideo Kojima may have announced Metal Gear Solid Rising is in development for XBOX 360, but, hey, you know what? It's multiplatform

Microsoft may have invited Hideo Kojima on stage to announce his new Metal Gear Solid game; but there was no mention of exclusivity

Konami has declined to comment on the platform of Metal Gear Solid Rising; neither confirming XBOX 360 exclusivity, nor denying a Playstation 3 version
Kojima surely won't deny the platform that has made his franchise a success?

Most interesting part of this - the word "exclusive" was not mentioned at all. Expect Hideo Kojima to show up at Sony's E3 conference tomorrow.
