But is motion control the wave of the future for video games or is it simply a fad that will eventually fade away?

Metal Gear Solid Philanthropy gets a release date

No, this isn’t a new Metal Gear Solid game.

MGS: Philanthropy is a fan made movie that has been in the making since 2002. The project has no budget and is non-profit, but don’t let that deter you from the potential greatness this film can achieve. They even have the singer of an iconic MGS theme doing the films ending track.

The movie will be distributed online for FREE. So what’s it about and when does it come out?

Konami announce more MGO content; Shadow Moses Redux

Following up from the recent bikini-mod, Konami continue to roll out the Metal Gear Online content during their week of anniversary celebrations.

This time we get Old Snake as a new playable character along with the handy Octo-cam suit rendering him invisible to opponents. Well, not entirely invisible, that just wouldn’t be fair. You will blend in to your surrounding environment however.

Metal Gear Solid: Rising to use new engine; look better than MGS4

Speaking on the Kojima Productions podcast, host Sean Eyestone revealed more than a few surprises regarding New Gear on the Block, Metal Gear Solid: Rising.

Though it’s nice to hear how the game will be handled by the “new blood” in Konami while the older crew take care of Peace Walker duties, it’s the somewhat bombastic statements about the graphics of the new game that may shock a few.

MGS4/MGO celebrates one year anniversary; breaks out the bikinis – UPDATED

As MGS4/MGO’s first anniversary loomed, more and more people voiced their wishes regarding how they thought Konami should celebrate this massive milestone. With new content and packs for MGO appearing since the game’s initial launch, it was a safe bet to assume that the powers that be at Konami would have at least something up their sleeves for the big “I am one” event.

Unfortunately, if you (like everyone else) were hoping the new content would be trophy support for both MGS4 and MGO – we have some bad news. If, on the other hand, you have a penchant for breasts – this just might be your lucky day.

It has been a long time since our last PS3-related April Fools Roundup – a year to be precise!

GDC09; Next MGS will have some Western design philosophies – Kojima

During his key-note speech at GDC Kojima-san revealed a final simple screen with the words “Mission: The Next MGS” and what looked like Raiden standing in the distance ready for his role call.

Though we have to wait for E3 for the official announcement, did Kojima-san just reveal what we’ve known all along – that Metal Gear Solid 5 is coming? And, if so, just how different is it likely to be?

MGS4 trophies? PSN ID for MGO?

Up until now the possibility of MGS4 trophies has been a fallacy; a myth of epic proportions that we could only dream about considering Konami’s insistence that it’s just not something that they were interested in.

With the recent SCENE expansion and as more people get into the extending MGS universe, could that all be changing?
