Put the Skateboarding ones up. Game looks undone.

I'm sorry.. But Snake on a skateboard during his missions? Doesn't impress me. Turns the game too comical then its meant to be.

I think there might have been a mix up......thoses pics that showing Snake skateboarding should be from the new skateboarding game that Konami is doing. AFAIK, Big Shell from MGS2 is one of the stage featured in the skateboarding game and Snake is a unlockable character from the game as well.

that would be correct. that pic with snake skateboarding is a new game by Konami. Konami is making a skateboarding game (Tony Hawk killer?) that let you pick snake as a character, and you get a demo of this skateboarding game in MGS2:Substance...As for the part where we can play as Snake instead of Raiden is really tight. I also heard that we can Choose the Ninja too? that'll will be cool..=)

Am I the only one not really at all that excited at MGS2: Substance?

Seems to me like they jsut threw in a bunch of VR missions and the ability to play as Snake. While yes, this is pretty cool, I wonder how the story changes from his point of view, or wether it doesn't at all.

HAving already played through MGS2, theres not THAT much in Substance that would warrant me buying it again.

Well MGS2 was a big selling game. So I guess they decided it would be a nice little cash cow to release it finally on the rest of the consoles with added stuff. All the people who never played the normal PS2 version or who dont own a PS2 have something to look forward to. Like Resident Evil for example. I only played the first 1/5 of the game since I never owned a PSX at that time. so the remake is a really nifty thing for me.
Ofcourse, the remake is a little different compared to MGS2 Substance. I side track. But its good that they are releasing something for the other consoles now. At least they aren't SONY WHORES like a certain TAKE TWO who keep GTA3 exclusive to PS2 till 2004. Like any other console will care by then. I just pray they dont make Max Payne 2 exclusive to that console. If they open their eyes they'll notice Max Payne got all its publicity and LOVE from the PC version. If they jip us with Max Payne 2 like they did witht he PC GTA3 game and delay it for ages, I'll spew.

um.. yeah.. I want Silent Hill 3. Not MGS2 Substance.

First of all, the skateboarding pics are from MGS2: Substance. MGS2: Substance will contain both MGS2: SOL and the VR missions. It's going to be on a dual layered disk. MGS2: SOL fills up one whole disk.

The future of GTA series is not really exclusive. Only in Europe and North America. So GTA can very well come out for GameCube and Xbox in Asia, Australia and every other place outside of Europe and NA. GTAIII is still supposed to come out for GBA. Not a 100% sure though.

Not sure about the asia thing. And I think Australia is linked in with Europe because of the releases I've seen in the past. What annoys me is pretty much GTA originated on the PC, then Sony leeched it. IT's all well and good, but its annoying to have to wait for it to come out on the platform it started out on.
If they make me wait for Max Payne 2 I'll have no choice but to cry. I aint playing that on a freakin joypad.

GTAIII did great in NA and Europe. And thats why Sony only bought exclusive rights for those places only. Obviously, after last years sales. The next GTA will do great, sales wise. So to buy just the 2 countries rights, must have cost a lot.
