I'm a long time MGS fan. This is the first game that I am skipping. Sorry Konami but I'm going to wait for a full game. Not going to pay for a demo.


To be honest man... your not missing much story wise at all. I would say watch the couple of cutscenes on youtube. I did that with portable opps. I skipped that one but watched the scenes just for the story.


Guess that's my recourse. Very disappointed because I am a genuine MGS fanboy. And to think, MGS2 demo was included with zone of the enders :(


Yep, there's a 3 minute intro and a 5 minute ending. You can watch the whole thing in a single 10 minute youtube clip.

I have the game and hate watching stuff on youtube, but if I could turn back time I'd probably do it that way.

For an MGS title on 4 platforms, is a million a good thing or a bad?

IMO for MGS, 1 million units split between 4 platforms and a month after the game launched, yes. It should have done that in the first 2 weeks, top.

Metal Gear Solid Rising for instance did about 1 million globally in the first week.

Japan - 335,000+
North America - 308,000

and I assume similar numbers in Europe as well.

If it took Ground Zero over a month to hit 1 million units, then yes it is bad.

You seem to be under the impression that GZ is a full game or something.

Lol at people seriously suggesting it sold badly

And if it is a demo like so many people, 1 million shipped plus I'd imagine quite a large amount of digital sales, especially with digital being cheaper?

Pretty damn successful demo

I keep forgetting that when it comes to bashing a game, people don't even know simple facts.

The X1/PS4 retail versions WERE $40 and went down to $30 after the backlash.

Glad to see it selling poorly. Shame on the devs for thinking they can charge $40 for what is essentially a demo.


^ this.
