New Medal Of Honor Portable-Bound

You know the new Medal of Honor with the modern-day setting will come to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC later this year, but did you know they're also planning to bring it to handhelds?

Based on a financial report filed by EA, the publisher certainly has plans to release the fresh Medal of Honor installment on portable devices and although they're not specifically mentioned, one has to assume they're referring to the PSP and DS. And according to Pocket Gamer, EA is definitely into supporting the PSP; we got a PSP version of Army of Two: The 40th Day and there will be a handheld iteration of Dante's Inferno on store shelves today, too. Of course, we might see the game come to iPhone and iPod Touch, which might not be surprising considering the overwhelming popularity of these devices...just don't expect anything too special on your little touch screen (in comparison to what you'll find on the consoles and PC). Developers and publishers really need to continue to support the PSP, especially if Sony plans a PSP Go relaunch, which has been the hot rumor as of late. The more software, the better. As always.

I can't wait to learn more about the new Medal of Honor; it was one of my favorite franchises until things started to go downhill last generation. Frontline is still one of the best titles in my PS2 collection. EA just needs to fix this ailing series.

And with good reason, people are finally starting to realize how it may be trendy to play the FPS that everyone else does but it gets BORING. Everyone and their mother are looking for a new FPS because MW2 isn't as amazing as expected. I know MoH's story will be EPIC, they always had a better story. EA is bringing BC2 too as well, good strategies!

I can't wait for this series return! Medal of Honor was a great series, too bad it started going downhill though. Hopefully this will bring it back to popularity and greatness. I have high hopes.

I am more after the singlplayer experience here for the PS3, that is unless the online portion of the game features dedicated servers.

With the PSP version, I will most likely pass.

There is one thing that game makers *must* start doing in games with online components. See, once a game is old enough, the publisher no longer supports it (See EA recently discontinuing game servers for a lot of games). At that point, a gamer is stuck with a game that is more or less useless because it can't go online. Even if the publisher doesn't yank support, when there are very few players, it's hard to get a good game anyway. Game makers need to allow an 'online' mode where the enemies and/or team mates are supplemented - partially or entirely with AI controlled players. It would increase the longevity of their game. I don't think people really consider this kind of thing, but games that use online servers will ultimately no longer work because the servers will be discontinued or re-purposed.

BTW if you type too fast, publisher becomes pusher....I'm not saying anything. I'm just making an observation. Those hooked on a certain FPS, will have to move to the next game in the series when it becomes available. They'll have to move just in case their pusher stops supplying their old drug...um...game, I mean...

Highlander - That's part of the reason I love KZ2, I choose skirmish over warzone every once in a while because it's fun to have access to all of the skills and classes, and not have to worry about disconnecting.

You'll probably find that if this goes to the DS, there will also be an iFawn, iPod Tickle and iFad version too.

Still at least the PSP version has a half decent chance of looking and playing something like the original.

im still on the fence with this one.
i never was a MOH fan i just can not get into war games, thats along as its not BFBC for some reason thats the only war game i actually enjoy.
im really disappointed with BFBC2 though.
i was expecting red faction guerrilla destruction but they have fell way short.
DICE brought it in with BFBC, than THQ perfected it and took it to the next level with RFG, so DICE come in with the same destruction level as BFBC.
what the ^%$# have they been doing for the last 2 and a half years?
