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!

Ubisoft can keep Conviction on the 360. I have no interest in this game, never played the others and will not play this one.

Although Kojima needs to bring us some ZOE3 info. That is the next game they need to make.

This was called "Lost" on the PS2 years ago. I was looking forward to that game, until it was abruptly cancelled just weeks before it was finished because the publisher decided it wanted to switch to a budget model.

Ironically, if the company published the game now, it could publish it at a budget price, especially since the code was all but finished.

I never understood why no one ever published that game as a budget title, especially since other cancelled, but almost finished, games like Red Star and The Shield have been published as budget titles.

I only liked splinter cell 1... I didn;t have time to finish MGS4 because my dad hogged it when he rented it, and for that matter I never played MGS3. Love MGS2 though.

Alter?
Well only to an extent

She shouldn't a female clone of Snake though

She should still hold some of her own traits.
Like how she's great with technology, how caring for others she can be, and how shy she can be.

It would be cool to have someone like that. I know most male gamers want a male lead character instead. But it would be way more creative to have a female lead in MGS5 if you ask me.

Sadly they(fans) would want her to be JUST LIKE Snake. Instead of letting her be her own person.

I'm kind of hoping that MGS5 will be a prequel to Snake Eater and use the Boss as the main character.

The Inferno idea sounds awesome, I enjoyed that along with Milton's "Paradise Lost." The Devil made a great anti-hero in the latter.

I'd like to hear more about Kojima's new IP as well.

Hmm, How about Metal Gear Liquid?

Awesome. Just awesome. I hooe they stay true to the novel as well, and they don't turn it into some silly FPS. Actually if they did, it would be a little bit reminesent of the original Quake...

If you do any fiction reading and liked Inferno from the Divine Comedy, try Matthew Pearl's "The Dante Club" It's about a killer who offs his victims according to the featured deaths in each "Circle of Hell"

Perhaps a game based on Nietzsche's Thus Spoke Zarathustra will be next. I'd love to kill God and overcome man to become the Overman.

It would be cool if they called it Metal Gear 7. And I hope it continues the story of the 4th. But if it goes back in the story I would like to see it take place between the 2nd and 4th.


And I really hope Conviction comes to PS3. That game was looking really promising last time I saw it.

1. Metal Gear
2. Metal Gear: Solid Snake
3. Metal Gear Solid
4. Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
5. Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
6. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots


I know I didn't count the PSP ones. It was just a half baked idea. But I wanted to explain myself anyway. I read somewhere that they were going to call Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear 3, but they felt not enough people would remember the games from the NES.

Raiden was badass...................(but not better than Snake :D)

Nah, he's got a family, let him live. He's been yearning to LIVE his whole life.

Sunny is the one who always wanted to see the world.

Sunny would love to make the world a better place.
