Konami On E3 Announcements: "Revolutionary & Groundbreaking"

There's often that one day when all of the news is focused around one company, and today seems to be Konami's day. We've already put up two stories regarding a possible new Metal Gear game to be unveiled at the show, and Konami has just added fuel to the fire by sending out this bit of hype in regards to their E3 announcements. And it reads:

“With Surprise Guests and Revolutionary Announcements, This is An Event You Do Not Want to Miss! Featuring a variety of high-profile speakers for all major platforms, Konami’s Press Conference will highlight games across all genres targeted towards players of all age groups and skill levels. Konami will feature groundbreaking announcements that you will truly not want to miss.”

Some pretty powerful words to use, Konami. Revolutionary? Groundbreaking? It seems like a Metal Gear game is all but obvious at this point, so we'd better see Kojima walk up on stage enclosed in a gigantic Jehuty mech-suit waving flags with "ZOE3" written on them. Because I swear with the words "all age groups" in that message, the last thing I want to see is a bunch of Wii games. In the, slightly altered, words of Dave Chappelle and Ashy Larry, write this down Konami: M-A-R-S. Mars, bitches. That's where [I want to go]. Red rocks! Yey, yey!

Read the end of the article. If you can't figure it out, you'll have to wait until someone does. I'm certain someone will.

Lol, MARS Bitches! I've got the only two real seasons of Chappelle on DVD, love the black bush skit too. Thanks for pickin up the news while Ben's out Arnold, we do appreciate it and your funny pics.

Ahem... back to the meat of the matter, ALL genres? Does this mean we can expect a Konami RPG?

R-P-G bitches! Better be at least...

That's my pick for the most surprising announcement I could hear.

Sony already has enough content announced to win E3, but if ANYTHING else comes out being an exclusive, it is a DONE DEAL.

If MGS5 is announced, then it's not just a done deal, it's time to sell all the 360's and buy a PS3.

How funny would it be for MGS4 to get announced for the 360, but MGS5 announced for the PS3? Both released on the same day, hehe.

In this day and age anything could be considered "revolutionary & groundbreaking". Honestly though, think about it? How cool would it be to play in ZOE 3 with the 3D tech that sony and everyone else was showing early this year? Imagine being inside Jehuty's frame, seeing the instrument panel floating in front of you like so many movies show now-a-days?
Cool thought huh?
Revolutionary & Groundbreaking? No.
Hella, cool?

"Featuring a variety of high-profile speakers for all major platforms"

I have all three consoles - PS3, 360 & Wii, but I sincerely hope that this statement does not mean a next Kojima installment is MS-bribe-obtained-exclusive.

It maybe, but i doubt it will be MGS5. If anything it maybe ZOE3. Im sick of M$ throwing money at people hold back content from their competitors. I think with Kojima though, his work is personal. Its a matter of pride for him. Just before MGS4 was released, he said he wasn't happy with it cause they had to scale it down in order to run on the PS3. If thats the case, the MGS will never go to the 360.

MS would have to throw a lot of money for that one. 4.5 million copies of MGS4 sold. That is a lot of income. Trust me, whatever it is, it's coming to PS3.

this is sorta off topic but that konami/kojima countdown site reminded me of a scene in MGS4 where raiden is going on about being totally alone & he says something to snake like'it even rained the day i was born'and snake replies something along the lines of 'you were the lightening in that storm'(or rain)
now i'm probably a million miles off but could that site be depicting raiden's bithday storm?
if it is indeed a Metal gear game,could it be starring raiden?
I'm just guessing here!

Any thoughts?

A lot of people have speculated about that. I remember seeing a pic from a press confrence, (I think it was from the GDC) where they showed a picture of Raiden.

I think you're on the right track.
