Konami ID’s Going Away


Pro Evolution Soccer 2010

Yes, Konami ID’s are going away. Starting with the release of Pro Evolution Soccer 2010. What about games that already use the ID? Konami has no plans to patch old games.

Most popular game to use the Konami ID is Metal Gear Online. If your letting the Konami ID stop you from even trying the game. You are missing out. Good news if there is a Metal Gear Online 2 it should be Konami ID free.

MGS4 Surprise Week / Metal Gear Online Updates & Free Bikinis


MGO has been updated to 1.33, it has a lot of bug fixes you can see the whole list here. It says “Damage for direct throws has been tuned.” Wonder if that means you can’t knock them out with one throw anymore with CQC-EX. Then the automatic CQC counter will only work if CQC’ed from the front. I prefer that actually, CQC-EX was to overpowered.

All this week Konami will have surprises for the one year anniversary of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. First surprise is free bikinis for those that have purchased the GENE expansion pack. Video of that in action below.

Another new surprise is a new stage, called the Icebound Inferno, which is also known as the “MGS4’s windy blizzard Shadow Moses stage.” Sounds like a great stage, I gotta try that. Then it seems like Snake will be selectable in more ways.

MGO Snow Stage

Wonder what other surprises Konami will have this week.

The fourth Metal Gear Solid game saw an older Snake return in a story driven adventure that featured a plethora of upgrades to make the series more accessible to Westerners by ridding the series of some of it’s archaic elements it had been hanging onto from past games. New gameplay features included a remote-controlled Metal Gear Mk. II and enhanced Close Quarters Combat system (CQC).

Set in stages that include the Middle east and South America, Snake is tasked with making his way through a series of battlefields using his legendary stealth abilities and his new OctoCamo stuit to avoid detection and reach his target–his archrival Liquid Ocelot. Also returning in the fourth chapter were classic and beloved MGS characters Meryl Silverburgh, Raiden, Hal ‘Otacon’ Emmerich, and Eva and Roy Campbell.

The game was hailed by critics and consumers alike and received rave review scores across the board when it was released to the gaming market on June 12th, 2008.

New PS3 160GB model including Uncharted announced for $499 in August


PS3 160GB Uncharted Bundle Package

Sony has announced a new 160GB PS3 model that will come bundled with Uncharted: Drakes Fortune for $499 this November and will only be available for a limited time.

The increased hard drive space will allow gamers to store more movies (which Sony allows you to buy, download and keep), TV shows, games and whatever else you decided to download off the PlayStation Network. Or anything else you want to put on it, such as music, videos or photos.

Here is what the 160GB Uncharted Bundle will contain:

* 160GB PlayStation 3 system -A complete entertainment system comprising a Blu-ray Disc player, HDMI output, an integrated Wi-Fi connection, and Cell Broadband Engine.
* Uncharted: Drakes Fortune video game – A 400-year-old clue found in the coffin of Sir Francis Drake sets a modern-day fortune hunter, Nathan Drake, on an exploration for the fabled treasure of El Dorado, leading to the discovery of a forgotten island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The search turns deadly when Drake becomes stranded on the island and hunted by mercenaries. Outnumbered and outgunned, Drake and his companions must fight to survive as they begin to unravel the terrible secrets hidden on the Island.
* DualShock 3 Wireless Controller – The DualShock 3 wireless controller provides the most intuitive game play experience with pressure sensors in each action button and the inclusion of the highly sensitive Sixaxis motion sensing technology.
* A PlayStation Network Voucher for PAIN – PAIN boldly tackles a rarely explored area of video-gaming … comedy. The unique mechanic of the game allows the player to load a character into a human-sized, ultra-powerful slingshot, and fire the character into an active, physics-controlled environment, filled with precarious and humorous situations. Download PAIN from PlayStation Store to your PS3 system with the included voucher.

“As PLAYSTATION Network continues to evolve with our recently launched video delivery service and more exclusive games, PS3 owners are demanding more storage capacity,” said Jack Tretton, president and CEO, SCEA. “Consumers also are utilizing PS3 as an entertainment hub for their digital media, placing content such as their entire music collection on the hard drive. The 160GB PS3 system addresses this growing consumer demand in a compelling bundle that delivers significant value.”

The new game system is just in time as well, as a whole slew of AAA PS3 games are on the horizon, including: LittleBigPlanet, Resistance 2, MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, Killzone 2 and Buzz: Quiz TV. And PlayStation Network games including Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest for Booty, SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEAL’s Confrontation and The Last Guy.

These some great already released PS3 games like Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Gran Turismo 5: Prologue and Grand Theft Auto 4.
