only a little
It's been the rallying cry of Sony fanboys from the beginning. Things might be bad right now, but you just wait until Metal Gear Solid 4. Then we'll see the PlayStation 3 rise up to conquer, just like the PS2 did, and you'll all be sorry for doubting it.
But will we really? There's a very good argument that Metal Gear's release won't make the blindest bit of difference to the PS3's fortunes as a format, however good it turns out to be (and there's every chance that it will be brilliant). The reason? Things just don't work that way any more.
The industry has changed a lot since Metal Gear Solid became a killer app for the PSone. It's changed almost beyond recognition in just the last twelve months in fact. Two major differences separate the way things are now from the way thing were then: The cost of making games and the kind of people who play them.
Will Metal Gear Solid 4 really boost PS3 sales?
Does a bear $#@! in the woods?
It won't raise the sales as Much as you all think it will. Yes, it will raise them abit, but what do you expect?
The 360 players won't buy because they think its a timed exculsive.
It will make a difference, we are expecting too much of this game. It WILL NOT compete with the xbox and wii sales because of 1 game, sony and 3rd party companies need to do more than that. Sony need to stop being so stuburn and buy some exculsives.
IMO I think SquareEnix should come out with FFVII PS3. Now THAT would sell consoles.
Am I the only person on the face of the planet that loves the PS3? (Ooh look, I said all that without putting the 360 down, there's a lesson there...)
Why is everyone acting like the PS3 is such a big failure? Really, it's overkill. I am looking forward to more than just MGS4, and I'll stand behind the PS3 being a damn awesome machine
bring on the exploit!
Well, I think it will move some consoles. What doesn't help the fact is that the Konami spokesperson had fuel the rumor fire once more. If 360 owners believe they might get MGS4, they will have no reason to buy a PS3.
However, Sony could help this situation. Sony has banked on the MGS series in the past and now is no different. Call it, the MGS Sale, and take off 50 bucks from the PS3 for 1 day, when MGS launches.
That will certainly move games and consoles.
If exploit gets found, I WILL buy one.
Just cuz I would like to see this thing EMULATE EVERYTHING!!! This thing has POWER but nothing is using its full potential. I would like to see the power maxed out on this thing. Right now it is failing because it doesnt have much exclusives. I would like to see someone find a way to... harness the full power of this machine and have a hayday.
