    MGS4 to have 90 minute long cutscenes - Puts me off buying it!

    Banned
    MGS4s story is massive. The videogame equivalent of all three Godfather movies on one disc, comments the latest edition of UK mag PSW. As youd expect, youll spend a lot of time watching cut-scenes, so if you found previous games story exposition laborious, then youd better find yourself a nice cushion and plenty of teabags in readiness for MGS4s.

    The magazine then goes on to reminds us They can be skipped, but youll be missing out on some of the finally crafted examples of FMV footage anywhere in gaming.

    Hideo Kojima is either crazy or a blooming genius. We still have not decided yet.

    90 minutes in just one cut scene?

    I really couldnt get into a game where there are cut scenes as long as films!

    90mins cut scenes and 10 mins game play, also this doesn't include the radio conversations.....long.... reminds me of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty.

    I'll give it a go from lovefilm as its free

    got gta4 from there a day after it came out :w00t:

    Im sure they denied this the other day...

    who would want to watch a 90 min cut scene? its just crazy... ull have to devote so much time to playing it... put lots of time aside just to have a "quick go" its silly.

    The news comes from PSW magazine, who's been and finished MGS4, and then promptly whispered in our ears about the shocking 90-minute cut-scenes. The latest issue hits newsstands today, by the way.

    We were expecting long story sequences (MGS2 approached the 45 minute mark in one) but an hour and a half of cinematics was unexpected.

    The good news is that you can now skip or pause the scenes. Hands up though, how many of you are actually going to sit through the full 90 minutes?

    "MGS4's story is massive. The videogame equivalent of all three Godfather movies on one disc," says the mag.

    "As you'd expect, you'll spend
    a lot of time watching cut-scenes, so if you found previous games' story exposition laborious, then you'd better find yourself a nice cushion and plenty of teabags in readiness for MGS4's.

    "They can be skipped, but you'll be missing out on some of the finely crafted examples of FMV footage anywhere in gaming," the article boldly proclaims.

    oh dear............... :roll:

    Publicity stunt, mistranslation, lie (remember, it is Sony we're talking about), or excruciatingly bad storytelling, I'd guess. Probably all three.

    Have you played a MGS game? :w00t:

    Dont forget the 4.6GB install

    Ad for the 90 min cut scene, i think it will probably be the ending + credits

    I've read that you can pause cut scenes in MGS4

    Yep. Okay, admittedly it was the first one, and it was only for three minutes and about ten years ago, but still. Are they really that bad?

    This isn't true! The cut scenes are not 90 mins! You've fallen for a hoax.

    lol wow nice going posting news that was proven false 5 days ago

    90 min cut scenes dont matter to these of us who dont have ADHD also you can pause them which makes me not care even more

    A rumor was flying around the internet that MGS4 would have 90 minute cut-scenes. Well a Gamepro editor says this rumor is false.

    "I've beat the game twice, and am the author of the forthcoming [GamePro] review," Shuman said. "Ninety-minute-long cinemas in MGS4 sounds like an exaggeration. Like the other MGS games, MGS4 definitely has a cinematic quality. And yes, some of the cut-scenes in the game are elaborate and occasionally lengthy. But not a one, to my recollection, even approaches 90 minutes."

    not one approaches 90 mins could be interpreted as only 60 minutes. Even that is excessive in my book. Whilst i like games to have a cinematic feel, I don't want to watch a movie, I want to be playing :thumbsup:

    the mgs series are notorious for having long cut scenes and being very cinematic in nature, almost half movie/ half game, personally I appreciate that in this day and age of games like army of two where players are offered a quick fix of violence and guns with little substance behind it all,

    GTA 4 had alot of cut scenes.

    lol first 90 and now 60 mins?

    the fact is no one has said how long the longest cut scene will be, and the only person to comment said that not one approached anywhere near 90 minutes
