Okay, seriously, where in the fuck is Zone of the Enders 3??? I love Metal Gear just as much as the next guy, but come on already Kojima! ZOE 2 came out in 2003... Metal Gear has already had two sequels since that time, and apparently they're prepping yet another game, with still no mention of  ZOE3. I know I'm not the only one who's frustrated here >_<

Limbo. Where unless it stays, it's going to be a huge failure. Not only is it going to be ridiculously hard to live up to fans expectations, those fans number a small amount, not enough to warrant a development with todays dev costs. Even more damaging to it's marketability is the resurgence of interest in Gundam.

Take it back =(

But seriously, why do you think it would fail? If Kojima was at the helm, I don't see why it wouldn't be excellent.

I didn't mean a failure of a game, I worded that badly i've just crawled out of bed. lol.

What I meant was it would be a complete and utter commercial failure. It's fan base is small, it's dev costs would be high (especially with Kojima at the helm) and with the rise popularity again for Gundam, a much more well known (deserving or otherwise) franchise.

Konami just wouldn't be willing to take such a huge risk for such a small number of fans, especially when it's going to be hard to live up to their expectations, and completely impossible to do it on a profitable budget.

I would love another Zone of the Enders. I would rather see another one ahead of a new MGS already.

They could always take the Crackdown route and pack a new Metal gear solid demo or beta with it!

they did that with the first ZOE with mgs 2 but i think at this point THERE WILL BE A ZOE 3 maby not today maby not tomorow but   there will be one they asked for feedback on a ZOE 3 on the kojima productions report and got  more comments on that then on anything else they have done  kojima productions is growing so they could get 2 teams 1 on mgs 5 one on zoe 3 and they come out at around the same time but there will be a ZOE 3 (if not then i will make one with pancakes and a iron will)

As much as i'd like one, no amount of tactical marketing is going to make it a viable product in the current recession. Maybe in a few years we will see an anouncement.

This is stupid.  When the Bombcast said it was fucking ridiculous, I had to agree.  This is the stupidest marketing this entire year.
