Konami Contemplating PSN Launch For Peace Walker
There's little doubt that Konami's Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker will be one of the finest portable games to ever grace the PSP.
But why limit the audience? Why not give it a shot on the PlayStation Network? Well, the publisher appears to be contemplating that idea, according to various Internet reports. Konami addressed the idea during a Q&A session with journalists following a game demonstration, and if brought to the PSN, the game would boast an online component similar to that of Metal Gear Online. If you're unfamiliar, Peace Walker puts you in Costa Rica about a decade after the events of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (did anyone actually expect to eat snakes when that game came out?), and Kojima's latest success has already been awarded a perfect score from Famitsu. The game will be here in June but only for the PSP...perhaps there will be enough fan feedback to convince Konami that it needs to go on the Network, too. The more people who can sample this bad boy, the better. And remember, total gameplay time has been estimated to be between 30 and 40 hours, so regardless of how and when you pay for it, you're guaranteed to get your money's worth.
So who would pick it up if it were on the PSN? One of the PSP's best on the PS3? As more time passes, this will become a more feasible option for many publishers.
