Why? Everyone bought their PS3 for movies anyway. This isn't any exception.

I wasn't that interested to begin with, but that seals it.

Wow, L&O's opinion carries quite a weight around here. Try not being such a sheep, Gromit

90 minute cutscene just sounds terrible.

At least they are still giving you an option to skip it. With the crazy story lines in the previous games, I don't think many people are going to play it for the story anyways. This game is going to kick some serious ass.

"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."

I assumed as much, as these things always get blown out of proportion.

I'm totally with you. This sounds awesome!

I'm not sure if you're serious, but this is very different. When I watch a movie, yes, I want to sit there and watch it. That's why I'm not a big fan of increased interactivity on BDs. However, when I play a game, I don't want to sit and watch cutscenes. I'm fine with a few minutes to set up a mission or advance the story like in GTA, but not 15-20 minutes (or longer) unless it's the ending.

So the rumoured 45 minute openning cutscene has now been replaced by the rumour of a 90 minute cutscene? I hope it's not true but, given Kojima's track record, it might be true.

Kojima is the Lucas of gaming. He creates these great characters and worlds they live in but doesn't know how to tell an effective story with any of that.
