    Link to the article and the trailer on Youtube

    No actual gameplay footage, but damn, the trailer is VEYR promising. And looks like Kojima did the impossible: They made Raiden cool.:eek:

    That looks sweet! I demand gameplay footage!


    ...

    And judging by the end of that trailer, it looks like Snake saw the Sony pre-E3 conference too. :ev:  :ev:  :ev:

    My god, I must play this game. I don't know how, but this game looks freaking spectacular!!!

    And, for anyone wanting to see in-game screens? Don't forget that Kojima Productions has a long-standing tradition of only using the in-game models of characters for cutscenes; what you just saw may very well be how the game will look for real.


    EDIT: Very interesting - did anyone else catch that when Raiden slices off one of the new Metal Gear's legs, it BLEEDS? Like, with BLOOD?

    This trailer is awesome beyond words. Can't wait to play it. Also, full 15 minute long trailer tomorrow!

    And BTW, have you people heard about the upcoming PSP MGS game? Not the Ac!d series, but its in the main cannon. Apparently, its gonna take place after MGS3, about 1970, and you play once again as Big Boss. From what Kojima has said it will have more action than stealth and its squad based. Also it will feature full cinematic cutscenes to keep the MGS cinematic style and graphics just like the PS2 MGS games. Its coming out in 2007 too.

    Looks like I'm gonna have to buy a PSP as well as the PS3.

    Very impressive trailer, I watched the Soney presentation and tbh that was the only thing (apart from the price and the pad) that really interested me, I've yet to watch the Ninty conference but so far Microsoft has my vote.

    the website is live tonight, but the trailers won't be up till tommorow at 11am PST... 13 hours and counting

    between this and Portable Ops, I can't wait... all praise Hideo! As others have already said; MGS4 = gotta get a PS3 for me

    edit: and yum, this was actually revealed at NY Toy Fair by Sideshow so it should be getting a US release too

    I dunno, guys. I hate to rain on people's parades, but I just don't trust Metal Gear trailers anymore. The second game made it seem like you were playing as Solid Snake, but you got Raiden. The third game made you think Snake was back, but you turned out to be Big Boss.

    My biggest reservation is that what we saw in the trailer would be all of Snake's screentime, then he kills himself and that's how the game starts, and you play as Meryl or something.

    Hope not, remember the fan backlash with Raiden? And I personally liked Big Boss better then Snake, anyways.:wink: 

    You've got a point, though. Wonder if it's Solidus, knowing Kojima's track record, it's perfectly possible after all.

    Solidus lost an eye, though. And all indications so far are that Snake is in tact.

    And, I think Snake will be the main character in MGS4. Don't forget the first trailer, where he takes the main character chair.

    If anything, this may end up being an ensemble piece, where you play as Snake, Raiden, Meryl, AND some other character (such as Liquid Ocelot or Vamp).

    Well, as I remember, Kojima already said that this game would be played as Snake. I need Subsistence, though I'm not going to buy the PS3 for about 2 years and 7 months. I know something you guys don't know. :cool:

    MGS4 - mms://delivery10.i-revo.jp/event/2006E3/MGS4/mgs4_e3_2006_eng.wmv
    MGSPO - mms://delivery10.i-revo.jp/event/2006E3/MGS4/mpo_e3_2006_eng.wmv

    if you keep hitting play in WMP you might get lucky and it'll load... i was able to watch the 4 and OMG it was SOOOOOOOOOO good I can't even begin to describe, now if someone would just post a hi-res one for download :D 

    edit: finally got PO to load and that looks quite good as well, glad I've got a PSP

    That MGS: PO trailer made me all tingly. I may have to acquire a PSP in a year or two to give it a proper play. :)
