Confirmed for PS3 release: http://blog.us.playstation.com/2012/...coming-to-ps3/


Gamespot detailed impressions: http://asia.gamespot.com/metal-gear-...ments-6393924/

The scene starts in a remote military base with heavy rain. The camera is following a shadowy figure in a business suit and hat accompanied by a number of well-armed soldiers and guard dogs as he converses with a little boy in a cage. He throws a portable music player after some dialogue and the boy proceeded to use it. The rest of the scene was playing "Here's To You" from the film "Sacco e Vanzetti" (also on Metal Gear Solid 4) as the man in a coat rides off to an airfield before taking off on a helicopter to an undisclosed location. Before erasing the "XOF" emblem off of the helicopter, he took out his hat and speaks about what transpired in very vague words. His face and head was all burned-up and scarred with no hair; at this point in time, we have no idea who he is. He proceeded to toss away all a stash of mini "XOF" emblems as he flew off with the rest of the soldiers.

[....]

Series creator Hideo Kojima then took centrestage and showed off the title's gameplay for a few minutes. We see Snake do what he does best: go in a prone state and sneak around (no Octocam this time; just old-fashioned crawling and hiding), as well as going into aiming mode in third person shooting a nearby guard at a security post. We should also mention that the demo gave out a sandbox open-world vibe; the military base itself felt expansive and huge, and Snake can summon a helicopter to bring him around as well as drive a jeep to go from point A to B. Kojima did state that he wishes to add a new spin to the stealth genre; even when you're discovered, you can use all the means and tools to escape rather than see a "game over" screen.

Some more details from the Famitsu article:

- They're definitely targeting PS3/360 for this game, but Fox Engine can also make next-gen games
- This is not a normal tech demo, they're showing actual development from their current open world sneaking game
- Apparently the script had lines about "soldiers who cannot return home", "Paz", and "Mother Base". All references to Peace Walker.

4Gamer also confirms that the characters in the demo talk about Chico and Paz, Mother Base, and one of the voices they heard was Tomokazu Sugita. That's the Japanese Miller in Peace Walker. PW2 confirmed. :P

Famitsu.com posted a first piece of artwork from Metal Gear Solid Ground Zero, the Fox Engine game that was revealed at today's Metal Gear anniversary event. Check out the image below.


According to Famitsu.com's report, Metal Gear Solid Ground Zero is the name of the real time demo Kojima Productions showed at the event. But it is also being made into an actual open world game.

Ground Zero targets current generation specifications. Famitsu reports that Kojima Productions is also working on next generation development.

-Open World
-Had a realtime fox engine demo
-People seemed impressed
-There's an embargo on seeing anything since we wouldn't want to take attention away from pants and Metal Gear Solid: Social Ops

I'll update with more as it comes.

God yes.

An Open World Metal Gear game just completely amazes me, I really can't wait to see this. I'm just hoping that we'll be getting more details and material shown soon.
