First MGS4 footage over at kotaku.

Looks cool! People are already saying that the graphics don't look any better than the 360. I want to say who cares considering it's MGS but I can see people arguing that you're paying a lot more for a PS3.

Yeah that's the problem, for it to cost so much more than a DC erm X360 it needs to just been on a whole different level.

That said, it doesn't look bad, hope there's some upgrades to the gameplay tho, MGS is kind of outdated in that field.

OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! *dies twice*

*deep breathes*

When Sega started their 2500 Yen Series of ports/remakes I had hoped, wished and dreamed of this.

Sega Ages 2500 Monster World Complete Collection (PS2)

That's just on their Tokyo Game Show list. No details BUT it should include these games.

Monster World I - aka Wonder Boy in Monster Land (Arcade)
Monster World II - aka Wonder Boy III - The Dragon's Trap (Master System)
Monster World III - aka Wonder Boy in Monster World (Genesis)
Monster World IV - aka Wonder Girl in Never Released in the USA (Genesis)

The first three were released for the Turbo Grafx/PC-Engine under varying guises as well.

Wonder Boy in Monster Land is my favorite arcade game EVER. I actually own the arcade PCB for it.

I wonder if Pixy will ever return from his 1980's time warp. Doesn't he realize it's 2006?

Well, Kojima himself admitted that MGS4 could run on the 360 hardware.

I noticed in that footage that Snake is like five feet away from two enemy soldiers when he shoots one in the back of the head with an unsilenced handgun. The other soldier didn't even react. Good to see that even with the power of the PS3, the enemy AI is still dumber than a box of rocks.

Can't wait for Lunar Knights. I was a big fan of Boktai and still have Boktai 2 to use as my solar sensor for Lunar Knights if they keep that feature in there.

I would buy a PS3 if it would clone Japanese floor models for me.

This reminds me that Battlestar Galactica starts soon. If only the PS3 would generate naked Boomers

That whole line up is not only for PS3.They got the games for PS and also the PSP.They coming out with a PINK colored PSP.
As you can see they have a signboard warning us not to take any pictures.Not that there is anything to see actually inside.They have a Big Screen demo and that's it.Same as last year's show.

I was at the show Saturday, September 23. The place was absolutely packed! Much more than last year. Overall, I thought it was really good. I got to try out some PS3 games like Virtua Fighter 5, Armored Core 4, and Heavenly Sword, plus Lost Planet Multiplayer for the 360, which was a lot of fun.

I was surprised that in the Bandai/Namco booth-area, they had Hellgate: London playable, as Japan is not a big pc-game playing country. That game was really fun.

Biggest Dissapointment: Huge lines (1.5 - 2 hour wait) to play both Resistance: Fall of Man and Warhawk. Not only were the lines huge, but stupid Sony designed their booths so you couldn't even see other people play the games without waiting on line. I wasn't going to spend about 2 hours waiting to play each game, but I would have liked to have seen at least other people playing them, and even that wasn't possible. Whomever designed those two booths is a moron. Isn't the goal of TGS to show off your games?
