OPM Rumors: MGS5 In Development, Conviction Coming To PS3?
Who doesn't love a good set of rumors? The most recent edition of the Official PlayStation Magazine has issued a bunch, many of which should intrigue PS3 owners.
First up, the rumor that Metal Gear Solid 5 is in development has returned, although we're wondering how much longer they can call it "MGS5." Kojima has stated many times that MGS4 would be the final chapter in Solid Snake's story, so perhaps it'd be more accurate to just call the project Metal Gear 5, or something else entirely. We're absolutely certain another entry in the franchise is coming, so this isn't earth-shattering news, but if it's already in development...that's pretty exciting. Secondly, we hear EA is planning to make a game based on Dante's 14th century poem, "Inferno." Those of you who have struggled through "The Divine Comedy" know just how difficult Dante is to read, but maybe it won't be so hard to play. Obviously, the game will have to deal with your escape from hell, in one way or another. Thirdly, the rumor that Sony is looking to emulate Nintendo has continued to float around the Internet; this one says Sony will release a Wiimote-like controller, one that uses the PlayStation Eye to track your movements. To us, this is just "meh," but whatever.
Lastly, and this is more good news for stealth fans, Splinter Cell: Conviction should also be making its way to the PS3. Initially revealed as a Xbox 360 exclusive, the game has been significantly delayed well into next year, and now that PS3 sales are better, Ubisoft may be rethinking its exclusive decision. Yes, please!
