Fuck yeah great news.  
By far my favorite in the series.

This was the only metal gear game I've never owned so it's kinda perfect lol. 
I wonder how big the carts for the 3DS will be. I know that some DS carts can go up to 2 GB, like the ones used for that Miyazaki game.

I'm so down for a 3DS and some MGS 3.

I swear to god Jeff and Brad made fun of cheesy game journalsim headlines and one of the jokes was "Metal Gear Solid sneaks into stores."

Spoilers: He can for half of the game, lol..

I don't want another handheld naked snake.

The most retarded game in the series.... Why couldnt they just bring in the first MGS?  Thats a day one purchase for me.

Just color the eyepatch blue, and wear the red half of the glasses.

" Never got into Metal Gear but 3 seemed pretty cool, as I liked the idea of the jungle survival stuff. Can you play 3 as a stand alone title or do you need to have played 1 and 2 first?? "

since MGS3 takes place years before the other metal gear games, it's probably one of the only MGS titles you could just go and play without having played the other. The story in MGS games  generally is a big clusterfuck anyways, so if you don't care just got for it regardless. Still, MGS3 provides background to MGS1 and MGS2 and you can also see the clear gameplay evolution.  If you don't have access to the other games though, just go ahead and play MGS3 and enjoy it.  Btw, the jungle survival stuff was among my favorite parts of that game, too :) "

That reminds me of the time when I played MGS 2: Substance for the Xbox with no previous knowledge of series.  You should have seen my face during that long end sequence.  It looked like this O.O

The story here is not mgs...the story is that they took an existing ps2 game and ported it.  This opens a lot of great games that have not been ported to psp or ps3 now available for the 3ds.  Also gives some idea of the capability of the device.  If they have figured out the controls and keep a good battery life...this could be real fun.

I would rather play the game on consoles, for the reasons given in the article, unless some massive changes are made to the gameplay.
Also, I don't think this game is really worth playing anymore. Here's hoping they fix the idiotic mistakes the game made, no less the gaping plothole that constitutes its narrative. Then it will be truly worth something. At this time, not so much.

#62 Posted by Wrighteous86 (3824 posts) -

Would be nice if it was a bit more than a straight port, but if the 3D effect is dramatic enough, I might buy it. 
It's good to know they can pretty much do a straight port of a great PS2 game though.

#63 Posted by Coleslaw893 (412 posts) -

Yep, I want a 3DS now.

#64 Posted by Marvel911 (16 posts) -

Should be interesting when it comes out.

#66 Posted by Vextroid (1445 posts) -

Another reason to get a 3DS! Yay. Still wish there was a PC port of sorts...
#67 Posted by keithfreitag (70 posts) -

Yeehaw! This looks pretty sweet! Can't wait!

#68 Posted by ArbitraryWater (12261 posts) -

I already own and have finished MGS 3. No amount of 3D wizardry will make me want to play through it again.

#69 Posted by Skytylz (4042 posts) -

Fuck yes!  The 3ds is going to have a killer line up of games.

#70 Posted by Urmean (599 posts) -

I would buy MGS3 if it was a Tandy interactive fiction.

#71 Posted by TobyD81 (1235 posts) -

3DS keeps on looking great. I'm honestly looking forward to the SF4 port as well. Even though that's not a perfect port, I'll bet it'll make a great bus ride game.

LOL!  "Wow you can see the knife coming right out a....aaauughh!!!!"
The only mechanic that comes immediately to my mind is that Snake is in 3D while detected, but flattens to 2D when he's camouflaged.  Will be interesting.

Wow, this is really cool.

It seems strange to try and port a game that had such a complex control scheme. It was only barely do-able on a PS2 pad, let alone a DS.

#76 Posted by bizsumpark182 (361 posts) -

While I'm not interested in playing it on the 3DS I am interested in seeing how well it holds up.

After you spin Snake around in the Cure screen and go back to the game, he projectile vomits in 3D and it flies at you.
#78 Posted by captain_clayman (3328 posts) -

they need the controls to be really good, better than the PS2 version at least.

#79 Posted by Hailinel (25205 posts) -

How would the fight with The End work in this game?  His boss fight isn't so much a fight as it is a grueling marathon of endurance.

#80 Posted by crithon (3462 posts) -
@Crushed:  I totally agree with that. Make the navigation less clumsey
#81 Posted by crithon (3462 posts) -

I'm curious how much will have to be scrapped from the original. No Rumble when fighting the boss,  no Snake VS Monkeys to help train players, and MGS3 is considerably long for hand held gaming compared to Portable Ops and Peace Walker. They seriously need to change a lot of things about the game.... but so far those screen shots look better then the original PS2 and the PSP

#82 Posted by AntoineDiamonds (78 posts) -

totally buying any MGS they come out with

@Oni: Flash memory is much cheaper then what it used to be. Depending on the actual cart size for 3DS games, I wouldn't be surprise if they had a solution for storage up to 2-4 gb per card. (micro sizing memory obviously will increase cost) Not to mention, Solid State ROM (read-only-memory) probably cost way less then consumer type flash memory. (SS-ROM is what the current DS uses)

Didn't own a PS2 in the last console generation. This is one of those games I was hoping would get a re-release on a new system.

#86 Posted by Korolev (1740 posts) -

Yep. I'll be buying this, and I'll pick up a 3DS too - when Nintendo releases an improved, smaller, brighter version of the 3DS one year later.  
Come on. Don't be an early adopter. You know an improved version is in the works, probably right now.

#87 Posted by fenixREVOLUTION (735 posts) -

Shocked that it's a straight port, not even with slightly downgraded graphics. Day one most likely.

#88 Posted by FunExplosions (5407 posts) -

As long as they fix that god damn horrible fucking fixed camera at the last boss battle. Ruined that whole experience for me. Of course, that was before I wrote the entire franchise off as childish and pointless, not offering me anything worthwhile. 

I better grab my Purple Flame Shield.

#89 Posted by Hilbert (349 posts) -

How about porting the game over to the ps3?
#90 Posted by UsbCable (235 posts) -

Fine I'll get a friggin 3DS! Stop announcing all these good games now please, you pissing off my bank account..... You won't like it when it's angry..... It'll mess your shit up is what I'm saying! Like totally....

#91 Posted by Captainlunchbox (446 posts) -

... You're supposed to play Pokemon in short bursts...?

#92 Posted by manuel_garcia (6 posts) -

This thing will probably sell me a 3DS.

#94 Posted by Hector (3382 posts) -

Just more awesome new, can't wait to have my hands on a 3DS.

#95 Posted by SamuraiBudgerigar (129 posts) -

Rather have a new game, but oh well.

#96 Posted by copeland57 (32 posts) -

Looking forward to this :D

#97 Posted by Zelnox (405 posts) -

I didn’t have a PS2 and my PS3 isn’t backward-compatible, so I guess I could play this one.

#98 Posted by CyleMoore (495 posts) -

I will definitely buys this game.

#99 Posted by MichaelBach (896 posts) -

3DS looks like it has some great controls and the 3D might be great. Can't wait to get a 3Ds in my hands.

#100 Posted by DemonStration (17 posts) -

I'm glad the best of the PS2 is being brought back on modern consoles. This, God of War collection, Ico/Shadow collection, this is great!
