MGS4 Limited Edition PS3 Bundle Ordering A Huge Disaster

200°
335w ago - Update: It appears that Konami may have dropped the $500 insurance charge and that pre-orders have temporarily ceased. The Konami online store asks customers to "Please check back tomorrow (May 20, 2008), when we will make available more stock for pre-orders."

One might think that after the registration disaster that was the Metal Gear Online beta sign up process that Konami would be well prepared for the pre-ordering onslaught that awaited them today.

Surprisingly, it wasn't, resulting in what can be be described as a clusterfuck of massive proportions as many gamers attempted to order their Metal Gear Solid 4 limited edition PlayStation 3 bundle.

In addition to tacking on a $500 insurance charge–which we're told is mandatory and refundable, though we can't confirm right now–we've yet to read of a single successful check out for the "gun metal" version of the console. As of right now, the Konami store is throwing a 503 error, most likely due to the heavy volume of MGS4 fans trying desperately to buy their PS3s.

Anyone out there lucky enough to secure one yet? Thanks to the many tipsters who sent this one in.

335w ago - French Web site Jeuxvideo have posted a new Socom Confrontation video for PS3 which can be viewed HERE.

Additionally, several screenshots can be seen at the source linked above.

A very rough translation states: "In lose speed for a certain time already the series of the SOCOM will be able to count on new a opus to try to start again itself.

Envisaged on PlayStation 3, SOCOM: Confrontation will be directed very clearly towards the online game since the title will make it possible thirty-two virtual soldiers to clash according to several modes of play.

The players will be able to thus incarnate various crack corpses such as the German KSK, British SAS, or the American SWAT. It is hoped in any case that this opus will be able to rectify the bar. The answer this autumn!"

Enjoy guys!
 

Review: Haze for PS3

50°
335w ago - First-person shooters can all seem the same after awhile, so it's great when a game comes along that changes it up a bit, giving gamers a new experience. Ubisoft is one of the leading producers of first-person shooter games and takes it up a notch with their exclusive PS3 title Haze.

In this futuristic game, it's 2048 and world governments have put their military operations into the hands of private military corporations or PMCs. Gamers play as Shane Carpenter, a new recruit for Mantel Global Industries; he is a trooper fighting the good fight. Or is it?

Shane is sent into a war-torn country to battle a rebel faction known as the Promise Hand; from the beginning his assignments are action packed.

As a Mantel trooper, Shane experiences the ultimate power of being equipped with the most advanced weapons and vehicles available. Included in the arsenal is nectar, a performance-enhancing drug that increases Shane's battle strength and gives him new abilities like the melee blast, nectar foresight and nectar focus.

As a trooper, Shane is nearly unstoppable, but everything is not what it seems. When Shane discovers disturbing information, he ditches Mantel and takes up with his former enemies-the Promise Hand. Even armed with his knowledge of Mantel operations, taking them down won't...

Payton: More Metal Gear On The Way, MGS4 Ends Snake's Saga

50°
335w ago - As expected, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patroits is not the final chapter in the Metal Gear series, but will serve as the conclusion to Solid Snake's saga.

Confusion arose last week at a press event held in Tokyo, with series producer Hideo Kojima vaguely stating that MGS 4 is "the conclusion to the Metal Gear Saga."

"I think there's been some misconceptions that this is the last Metal Gear," Payton told MTV. He added, "This is really just the last chapter of the saga of the Solid Snake story."

But if this is Snake's story, what's up with the inclusion of Altair's costume from "Assassin's Creed"? And how did Kojima get Ubisoft and Konami to cooperate?

"The "Assassin's Creed" costume was one of the last things we put in the game," he said. "It was kind of a last minute thing [and] we were really lucky enough to have Ubisoft be so enthusiastic about this kind of cooperation. They worked overtime to get that costume into the game."
