Kojima Podcast: Team Starts Work On MGS4 Demo
If there's one game that continually looks better and better, and one game that always wows the crowd wherever it goes, it's Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. It had a great TGS 2007 show, as Konami unveiled that super awesome new trailer along with a few other juicy news tidbits and hints. One of these centered on the possibility of an upcoming demo, and we've learned more about that today.
According to the latest Kojima Report Podcast (#59), the team talks about several new MGS4 developments, and even incorporated the Dual Shock 3 into the discussion. After being asked if the rumble feature in the DS3 was better than in the DS2, they said "absolutely," even though they only had a chance to add rumble into the game one week before TGS. Well, that must mean instituting the feature can't be too difficult, which makes sense. After all, even if the DS3's functionality is a bit more advanced, a zillion PS2 titles took advantage of the rumble, so why should it be any different for the PS3?
But that wasn't the most important part of the podcast. When prompted to talk about the demo, they simply said-
"All I can say is that as of tomorrow we're going to start working on the English demo."
Sweet! We hope everything goes smoothly - and quickly - in the production of that demo, but in the meantime, check out the PlayStation Store tomorrow for those new MGS4 and Metal Gear Online trailers (if you haven't seen them already). We'll let you know the instant Konami/Kojima Productions provides us with an estimated release date for that demo!
