great price.

loads of cut-scenes in the game...but its still a great game to play

Great game at a great price.
It has been announced that it will be out at some time, don't know when, on the Platinum range. At that point the price will clearly be cheaper BUT can you wait?

Amazing game well worth your money. Nxt cheapest appears to be powerplay @ 20.99

I just received my copy from them. Anyone know if its supposed to come with a slipcase? It seems to be missing from my copy.

Didnt have a slipcase with mine either (looking on eBay it seems like some do and some dont, may have just been so many which were provided with a slipcase).

Excellent service from SoftUK though, wasnt expecting to receive the game until next week!

Platinum edition is out soon, so its likely to appear cheaper in some places (maybe around the £14.99 mark), but the packaging for platinum titles is pretty nasty if that bothers you.

If i remember correctly hmv or another big store had there MGS copies with slipcases. Other stores didnt.

I know HMV had the white slipcase while probably GAME and Gamestation had the black ones during release. The game has been out of stock for quite some time though and maybe it could that the later pressings (or in this case the final non-plat pressings) don't come with slipcases?

Good deal... great game :thumbsup:

Do you think there will be a MGS4 extended edition like substance or subsistance or should I just get this?

Does anyone know why ps3 games depreciate so quickly?

cold for me. paid £7 for mine brand new wrapped from currys about 2 months ago.

1. They don't compared to, say, 360 games.*

2. Because once everyone who was willing to pay 39.99 for a game has finished it, what happens?


* That's anecdotal experience. I'm pretty confident about it, but other people could have different opinions.

I think you just got a really good price. Chances are there was a few copies max at that price across the country. This is the cheapest you're going to find it for now.

Fantastic price, fantastic game, second highest rated exclusive title of 2008 just behind LBP.

top game, top price!

simple.

Good price for a great game. Only this and Kill zone 2 worth getting a ps3 for at the moment so its a must have really.

There's Blu Ray, of course. I'm pleased with mine, overall. The hardware looks smarter, feels better built, and so far has been less problematic - to put it mildly.

But the situation for games on the PS3 is pretty dire. There are a handful of good exclusives, but too many exclusives have been a let down. The real killer though is that when a game is available for both PS3 and Xbox 360, more than 9 times out of 10 it is better looking or better running on the 360, sometimes both.

Don't get me wrong - I wish I could have Sony's hardware quality and the 360's games in the same console, but those are the breaks. Since gaming is about the games, the 360 is still the smarter choice, I think.

Anyway, GP poster is correct: this is one of the ones worth having.

You could've pointed out the other games on the PS3 worth getting. Maybe Little Big Planet or....

lol the 360 fanboys are all over the site mate, they have a never ending supply of muck comments, the fact that they spend all their time in ps3 deals just says it all.

I know I should be a little more mature and stop winding them up, but really I just cant help myself :-D

no man I was calling alera a fanboy, I am in favour of the ps3 ;-)

He of course said that the only reason for getting a ps3 was for killzone 2 and this game. Its ba***, another fanboy jab.

Why must xbots say stupid **** like this, I own both systems, and the PS3 now has more EXCLUSIVES of quality than the 360. Exclusives means EXCLUSIVE and not farmed out to the PC 2 months later.

Here, again :

Uncharted
Resistance
Resistance 2
Motorstorm
Motorstorm 2
Folklore
Ratchet and Klang
Heavenly Sword
Valkyria Chronicles
Killzone 2
Socom
Little Big Planet
Metal Gear Solid 4
Eye Of Judgement
Warhawk
Wipeout HD
Siren Blood Curse
GT5 Prologue

.... and some more... great stuff on PSN like

Crash Commando
Flower
Super Stardust HD


Sorry if you feel theres only 2 games worth getting a ps3 for.

I'm only interested in exclusive because I have a great PC and 360 already.

D.

Great game and great price, have to admit that this was the only reason i got a ps3 along with blu ray.
Other than that i think the xbox is far better IMO

I hate it when people say that the PS3 has no exclusives...it has many great ones.

There's MGS4, Uncharted, Ratchet and Clank, Killzone 2, Resistance 1 and 2, Motorstorm Pacific Rift, Valkyria Chronicles, Little Big Planet, Disgaea 3, Socom, Heavenly Sword etc. etc.
On PSN, we've got Quest for the Booty, Flower, Flow, Wipeout HD, Noby Noby Boy, Super Stardust HD, LocoRoco Cocoreccho, Pixel Junk Monster, Tekken 5: Dark Ressurection, Echochrome, The Last Guy...just to name a few. And there are also lots of great PSone titles available usually for as little as £3.49 such as Crash Bandicoot games, Suikoden, Wipeout, Command and Conquer, MediEvil. Rayman, Syphon Filter, Street Fighter Alpha, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six are examples.
While I know the 360 has exclusive content for Fallout 3 and GTA IV, the PS3 has exclusive content for Bioshock (challenge rooms, survivor difficultty etc.), Far Cry 2, Mirror's Edge and Eternal Sonata.

And let's see what exclusives are coming in the future: White Knight Chronicles, Demon's Soul, Uncharted Among Thieves, Infamous, Heavy Rain, MAG, God of War 3, Free Realms, DC Universe Online, Final Fantasy Versus XIII, Metro 2032, Quantum Theory, X-Edge, Fat Princess, Gran Tourismo 5 and the list goes on and on.

There are very few multiplatform games that run or look better on the 360. The only one I can think of is Fallout 3 off the top of my head. Also, it is now pretty much accepted that the PS3 has become the better console graphics-wise with games like Killzone 2 out and titles like God of War 3 and Uncharted 2 in the works.

To be honest with you, at this point the issue with exclusives it pretty much non-existent now...and the 360 doesn't really have that many exclusives as nearly half the so-called exclusives can be played on a half-decent PC. I'm not saying the 360 is bad...far from it...I'd love to have Lost Odyssey, Gears 2 and Fable 2 on the PS3 and Halo 3 is still the best FPS in terms of gameplay but I think I'll have to disagree with people who say that Halo 3 has a better story than MGS 4 (see gametrailers) or those who say that the PS3 has no games.

And I admit that PSN may not be as good as LIVE but it's far better than how it used to be. Killzone 2 is a lot of fun online. Resistance 2 is good as well and Little Big Planet has a phenomenal online community with an endless amount of great user-created levels. Try the Ico, Little Dead Space, Wizard of Odd and the many MGS levels to see what I'm talking about.

Hydromancer does raise a good point about upcoming titles being exclusive to the ps3, i just feel the online aspect of the ps3 is a total letdown and is not as good as the 360 in terms of being user friendly.

I love my PS3. I've just finished Drake on crushing to get the platinum trophy and Metal Gear was a great game as well, both exclusives.
What really gets me is that I constantly read on websites how the PS3 fanbaby is worse than the XBox fanbaby but I only see the latter! Perhaps that is because I rarely read xbox threads (I don't have one..so why bother???). I rarely comment on HotUKdeals Xbox threads unless it is refering to a game that I have played (on the PS3 version) whereas I always see Xbox fanbabies rant this that and the other on PS3 threads.

Go figure.

I don't think I'll get Platinum in Uncharted. Crushing it just too hard. I'm incredibly close to my first Platinum in Prince of Persia though!

A lot of times there's not a lot in it, sometimes there's a big difference. But last time I looked, the PS3 was the better version in just two cross-platform games, out of the twenty or more I checked.

Honestly, I've got no reason to lie. I own both consoles, I check which is the best version before I buy, and I buy the best version.

Usually it's small things, like the Xbox version having anti-aliasing, when the PS3 version doesn't, or Xbox version having smoother framerates, or little things like that.

Sometimes it's more serious, like Orange Box, when the PS3 port was handled by a third party to no good effect, or like the mess they made of Double Agent.

I'm not saying which console is better. I'm not saying which one is cooler. I really don't care at all.

I keep my eye on these things, I buy whichever I feel like, I don't have any loyalty to one or the other. I would prefer, if anything, that the games were better on the PS3 because, frankly, I trust the console more. I also prefer the PS3 controllers, and the battery life on them is way better.

But there we have it. If you want to engage with that, go ahead. You want to debate that, go ahead. I'm open to difference of opinion. But if you just say 'Absolute Rubbish' we know who the fanyboy is right away.

Back to the game, I found it very worthwhile, and there should be DLC for it in March.

Is this game worth it if you have never played the others?

I heard it was a bit wasted as it spends ages tying up loose ends and explaining stuff.

I usually received sealed games from most of the shops, but MGS4 arrived unsealed :thinking: Anyone else had the same problem? I think all the games, which are sold as brand new should be still in the original PS3 wrapping, don't you think so?

Not metal gear solid 4, all copies do not have a cover for some reason ? Some of the copies came with a slipcase, but still no shrink wrapping.

D.

price has gone up to £24

Strange, how come some ebay sellers list as new and factory sealed?

What would be the reason for this? Can't believe this. If must be definitely sealed from factory in my opinion...
