PSXE Poll Update: Kojima Likely Doing A MGS Prequel
It seems many of you believe the rumor (with supposed evidence) that Hideo Kojima's new project will indeed be related to his legendary Metal Gear Solid franchise.
Although many of you want to believe that Kojima is going to create a genre-defying title that doesn't specifically fall into any one category but features a blending of elements, most still think it'll be a MGS prequel. A little while back, the big rumor was that Raiden will be the main character in the game, but everyone keeps pointing us back to the fact that Kojima and Co. want to appeal more to the Western gaming audience. This doesn't necessarily mean a prequel is out of the question, but it does mean we can expect something fresh and new. It may not appeal to the die-hard Kojima fans out there, but provided you're not hooked on that particular style of gameplay, you should be intrigued by the new game. It will be unveiled at E3 in June so we don't have much longer to wait; it's guaranteed to be one of the most anticipated announcements of the show. However, to all PS3 fans: don't be surprised if the game is coming to both the PS3 and Xbox 360; in fact, it almost seems inevitable at this point.
Next up is a simple question, although it may be difficult for you to choose just one: what's your most anticipated upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive? Which game on that impressive list over there to the right interests you the most? Which is the game that will cause you to skip school or work just to pick it up at the store? Or, if you want to look at it in a different way, which of these will have the most "system-seller" potential? Anyway, vote for your most anticipated PS3 exclusive now!
