Konami announces Metal Gear Solid 4 Add-on

100°
330w ago - Konami has announced that a free downloadable add-on for Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots will be made available on PS3 on Thursday (June 26th) in Europe.

The Metal Gear Solid 4 Database is a comprehensive archive detailing characters, weapons and plot elements from 1987's original Metal Gear title right through to the most recent title.

According to Konami, the system allows users to search via three central hubs: GENE (a glossary), MEME (which maps the relationships between characters in the series), and SCENE (a timeline for the series).

Users can jump from page to page using specific keywords, with the relevant information appearing instantly. All information relating to Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, however, can only be accessed when the software detects a save data file created when the game has been completed, as to avoid spoiling the final adventure.

A statement from Konami reported: 'Metal Gear Solid 4 Database is a stunning - and completely free - companion to the series, and will answer any question pertaining to Hideo Kojima's games and characters.'
 

Tipsters pour in with PS3 Trophy Screens and In-game XMB info

200°
330w ago - From PS3FanBoy, linked above: A short while ago a tipster leaked a PS3 trophy screen, while the validity of it was doubted, another tipster came into the frame to say what was posted is indeed real.

He sent along a new picture of one of the other pages too which are called gamer card and compare, and your gamer card will feature a trophy total and level.

To quote: Another tipster, calling himself "Gassy Snake," claims that he is a game developer who can vouch for The Patriots. He claims that the above image is real and, to prove it, proceeded to send us a picture of one of the other pages. These pages are called "gamer card" and "compare."

As you can see below, your gamer card will feature a trophy total and a "level." How you progress up these levels is anyone's guess, but there also seems to be some room for extra information of some kind.

400°
330w ago - PlayStation®Home closed BETA version v0.9.4.2: Welcome to the latest update to PlayStation®Home closed BETA which will be available from Wednesday 25th June.

Below you'll find information on all the changes and additions but we would also like to tell you about our plans for the next few weeks as we are preparing PS®Home for a larger audience and another change will happen shortly.

On about the 10th July we will be moving PS@Home to what will be its long term home and this will entail a new release of this code for you to download. This will also remove all your save data for which we apologise, but this will be the last time that happens and we will also be then setup to expand the beta soon after.

We will confirm dates for this next change shortly but now its time to talk you through the changes to PS@Home in v0.9.4.2

Patching
The first item we need to mention is our new patching system. When the patch is released the first time you connect you will be prompted to get the latest files as normal. If you decline the patch and then still try to log on to PS®Home it will crash. The new patching system is really built for v0.9.4.2 upwards and its compatibility with 0.8.6 is limited.

Targeting system
What your character targets when looking around is now...
 

Metal Gear Solid 4: Best game ever on PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii?

300°
330w ago - Reviewers have said Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is one of the best video games ever made, and that includes this-gen systems such as PS3 and Xbox 360 all the way back to NES.

High praises are given by the big three industry review giants: Gamespot, IGN and Gamepro. These reviewers have been in the industry for over 22 years. Practically most of us grew up reading their reviews.

These review sites are no slouch, especially IGN and Gamespot with their very strict 10 point scale. IGN has only 15 some games that have ever received a perfect score of a 10. They define only a game that is revolutionary or truly defines a genre deserves a perfect score such as Metal Gear Solid 4.

Gamespot is known to be even more strict in their scoring, only giving five games in their entire history back to 1996 a perfect 10. With the addition of Metal Gear Solid 4, that makes it a total of six games in their history of deserving a perfect score.

Gamespot and IGN both rate Metal Gear Solid 4 above other blockbuster games such as the Orange Box or Halo 3 which both received a 9.5.

IGN: "Not only does it sum up the full franchise of Metal Gear, its depth and its complexity, coupled with its technical prowess, make it one of the best games of the year and, indeed, one of the best...
 

Report: PS3 Sales Rising, Xbox 360 Headed Down

200°
330w ago - The future of the current generation of consoles is in a flux, but sales of the PlayStation 3 are seen as rising, while the Xbox 360 is "headed down."

According to Christopher Null of Yahoo! Tech, the argument that Grand Theft Auto IV will be lucky to sell a little over half of what Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas sold in 2004, cost $100 million to develop, and has failed to boost sales of consoles doesn't mean next-gen gaming has hit a wall.

"At $60 a pop, GTA IV is poised to rake in a solid $720 million in sales, at least," Null said. "If GTA IV had been a movie production, it'd be an unmitigated smash hit."

There are also countless reasons to some of the weakness in the current console market, he said.

"Front and center is a sour economy and an industry that still expects consumers to pay a minimum of $400 for a PlayStation 3. But PS3 sales are rising (and will continue to do so as prices fall). Xbox 360 sales are headed down. And of course, the Wii is a success story that no one can contest."

"The future of this generation of consoles is in flux, but there still seems to be plenty of activity in an industry that's now worth some $10 billion," he said.
