As expected I guess, The Phantom Pain is the one to wait for. There's no problem with hardcore fans buying Ground Zeroes as long as they know what they're getting into though I guess. Still, pretty crappy pricing by Konami ($20 sounds more appropriate).
You're all being really silly. How many of you are going to play the one mission once then throw the disc away?
I'm sure some people out there will still get their money's worth out of it. However, it's not difficult to understand that many may only have interest in playing through the core content once and dabbling with the extras. This is particularly true in regards to games that are narrative-focused. Given that, it's rather absurd to assume that everyone who plays it should be expected to go through every difficulty striving for a Big Boss ranking. The primary product representing less than two hours of content at $40 is undoubtedly going to be a poor value proposition.
I knew from Day 1 that we were being sold the equivalent of the Tanker Mission, I don't know why anyone thought otherwise. Still gonna buy it because I'm a Metal Gear nut, but I would have preferred waiting and having included in the TPP.
GI says they tried some extra missions but not all, did not mention how many there are but said they all take place in the same base. Koji Pro says they used Dead Rising case zero as the inspiration, says with DLC and all this extra paid stuff they decided to try it with the first part of the game.
