Brilliant!

Zone of the Enders 3 would also be acceptable. :)

And considering I've been playing Metal Gear Ac!d for the better part of the day, a 3rd game in that series would be pretty nice. And a sequal to Portable Ops..... /drool

Okay...the only thing that really could be at all "Earth Shaking" is either

A. Konami has made an earthquake machine...and will be holding the world hostage...

B. MGS4 is going to 360.


Honestly, I'd prefer a new ZOE most of all as I find MGS...um...just too Japanese to take seriously or even have fun with.

It would be the most incredible coup for Microsoft if they got it, and particularly if it became either an X360 exclusive or else launched first on the X360.

But I don't think it's MGS4. There's no chance that Sony would let that one get away. Really, there's not that many PS3 exclusives left.

On Gamefaqs there's a user named PORTRAITofRUIN who works for Konami in the U.S., this person was giving out tons of information about the Portrait of Ruin game before it was released, and everything they said turned out to be true. Most recently they talked about the new Castlevania game for PSP before it was announced, and they claim there will be a new Castlevania game for DS based on the 1999 events, for those of you who have played Aria/Dawn of Sorrow, 1999 was when Julius was younger and killed Dracula for good.

This will be the release date for MGS4 on the PS3 platform.

MGS4 on Xbox360 will be denied by Konami until after its out for PS3 (so not as to damage sales on sony's platform), then they will release a *superior* XBox360 version.

1. Silent Hill 5.
2. MGS4 on 360.
3. Snatcher remake (and/or Policenauts, if Konami loves me).
4. Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles on PS2.
5. New DDRs aside from Hottest Party.
6. New Castlevania on DS.

Those are the things I think are likely that would make me happy. Anything else is either unlikely, wouldn't make me happy, or both.

Edit: Wait a minute! That post was up BEFORE all the Gamer's Day announcements. Methinks they just thought those announcements would go up on Monday, not Friday. I think there's a great chance we're getting a big pile of nothing.

dude, 2.5D Castlevania on PSP would be fucking sweet. It would result however, in a homocide, as the prick who borrowed my roomie's PSP would have to die if it was not returned in time for the release date.

What I had in mind though, was big, epic, reimagining of the series, maybe toss it forward into the future for kicks, and ramp up the graphics to the extreme, instead of looking like glorified PS1 games.

I can see glimpses of it in my mind, and yet, it will never be.

The concept of "earth shaking" is pretty LOLable when it comes to videogames really.

If anything, the shift from projects to next-gen should be the main focus, so at least expect all the PS2 franchises to be spread between Sony and Nintendo mostly, leaving the 360 to get some PS3 ports. Thats my guess

Maybe Yie-Ar Kung Fu for the VC, that'd be the most randomly awesome news ever

Everyone knows I'm one of ZOE's biggest fans. Seriously, the second game is king of the mech game hill, bar none.

If Konami announced ZOE3 for Xbox 360, I'd piss myself and pass out lemonade.

If Konami announced ZOE3 for Xbox 360 bundled with an MGS4 playable demo...

I'd probably poop rockets. Man, that'd be awesome but so heartbreaking at the same time.

That being speculated, I say MGS4 for Xbox 360, and possibly ZOE3.

It's doubtful though.

Just my opinion.Great idea, Zeal.

Especially given the number of rumour and 'SUPER SPECIAL ANNOUNCMENT' announcements of late. I understand that it's February and the game world is not particularly on fire, news-wise, but it seems like there have been more insubstantial news items of late than I recall.

Granted, we've got all three systems out now so the crazy rampant speculation of the last year and a half has definately cooled down somewhat.

Holy kriest, who cares? Why not just wait till Monday and then tell us? This is bullshit to get people's attention and the actual announcement will be a waste considering all the salivating we do over "possibilities."

In fact, tell me Tuesday. I don't fucking care. Maybe by then I'll stop being bitter.

If this thread is a waste of time, then 99% of Evil Avatar threads are a waste of time.

In fact, I think posts saying a thread like this is a waste of time, are actually a waste of time.

My bet:

Konami have bought the licence to develop a game based on Borat, the game will be a third person action adventure and see you play as Borat going on a road trip around America, making stops in fog covered towns and allowing you to use stealth to avoid Jews with exclamation marks above their heads whenever you mention money. Pressing the context sensitive A button will make Borat say anti sematic phrases. Coming Christmas 2007.

You know you want it! lol.

They already announed a DDR for the 360 and Wii, the Wii version has a pad + controllers for hand movements. Yeah, I know you made the post for humor, but... :D

Okay...the only thing that really could be at all "Earth Shaking" is either

A. Konami has made an earthquake machine...and will be holding the world hostage...

B. MGS4 is going to 360.


Honestly, I'd prefer a new ZOE most of all as I find MGS...um...just too Japanese to take seriously or even have fun with.
Personally i love ZoE a lot more then MGS but there is no way MGS is more Japanese then ZoE. Come on, it has anime style cut-scenes and characters plus gaint robots.

If MGS goes to the 360, I'm killing myself. Hell, if MGS4 goes to the Xbox 360 then its a cause for celebration. I love Metal Gear and the versions on the PS1 and PS3. I just don't want to spend an additional $600 on top of my 360 to play the 4th game.

KNOTE
02-03-2007, 10:23 PM
It won't be MGS4 to 360. If that happens it would be a port about a year after PS3. This is most likely next gen announcements of existing Konami franchises, most likely all PS3. If I were Konami and I were putting the company defining mega-budget title on a platform that will have a small install base at the time of launch, I would throw all my weight behind that platform early and try to bring more potential customers to it. Konami can't afford to only sell 1 million MGS4s.

My guess: Silent Hill, ZOE, Castlevania all announced on the same day for PS3.

You guys are all crazy. There are not enough 360's in Japan to warrant MGS to go to the 360. These are all Japanese companies, and to them is JP first and America Second. There are more PS3 in people homes in Japan than their are 360s.

It comes down to simple business.

MGS4 is announced as a Wii exclusive. 360 and PS3 fanboys alike promptly all die of heart attacks, as they realize that not only must the eat a whole flock of crow after countless mockery of it's graphical capabilities, but they've both spent massive premiums on consoles for supposedly amazing next-gen graphics, when they could've gotten them on a system that's half the price and still looks decent on an SDTV.

Think what you want, but simple business dictates that since the 360 has the lead that they'd make their big money making games for that platform. The only way they won't make Metal Gear for the 360 is if Sony has given them a metric assload of cash to make their games PS3 exclusive (if even for a short while). Whether the "Earth-shaking news" is about Metal Gear going to the 360 I have no opinion, but to assume that they wouldn't bring out a title that would be a big seller where the market is biggest is ignorant of business and economics.

MGS is just as big, if not bigger franchise in the U.S. which is why both MGS2 and 3 were released Stateside before Japan as Kojima puts a lot of stock in the market for the success of the series.

Wow, should be as BIG as when Microsoft bought Capcom (reported here first, fitbabits' "sources" exclusive!) and Square announced FF7 remake running on the UE3.0 engine for the Xbox 360 on 31st of January (also reported here first!).

Xbox 360 fans are for a treat, I envy them! So many good things happening in their camp lately!

1. Why you gotta be such a douchebag today?

2. When was this FF7 "news"? I don't recall seeing this.

Prolly cuz Borys is usually a douchebag? In fact I think he and 51 Random have a pool between the 2 of them on who can be the longest running douchebag on EvAv. But I digress. I'd be willing to guess its most likely just an announcement on next gen sequels that haven't been announced yet.

I'm sure MGS will eventually go to 360 since the initial user base of the PS3 isn't going to make Konami enough to cover the cost of production to begin with. They'd have to port it to 360 just to try and make their investment back imo.

Really tho aside from MGS, ZoE, and Castlevania which to me were all over rated to begin with what does Konami have for franchises? Contra? already been done on live, Time Pilot? same thing. Oh I know! A next gen version of Track N Field! oh yeah!

I recently read an article where Kojima said he was very interested in working on the 360. If it is something earth shattering, I think it might be a new game announcement for the 360. It will not be MGS4 (it could be a different MGS game) because he has already stated that he was not interested in doing that. Of course, it may have nothing to do with Kojima and it may not be earth shattering.

I hope Konami announces In The Groove 3, and that it will be developed by the original ITG team. But then again that wouldn't be "earth-shaking" news to 99.99% of the populace.

Elebits is the type of game that gives you too much of a concept that becomes boring, so no need for a sequel there.

MGS4 on the 360 is pretty likely, but I'm surprised there's less speculation of a Wii version. MGS is probably Konami's most "earth-shake-worthy" franchise, so I'm guessing something with that.

that might be true for the place where you live, but here in Norway - where Xbox has never really been very big, the PS3-waiters have turned PS3-haters and have spent their cash on Xbox360 AND a Wii. Europe always get fucked in the ass by most companies when it comes to pricing and release dates, just like the Aussies normally do, and the PS3 price (2/3 more expensive than in the US) AND the extra wait has made headlines in gaming magazines as well as normal press. An aura of negativity surrounds the PS3 at the moment, and unless Sony makes some kind of genious move, they will probarbly loose the lead in this part of the world, in this generation.

As for the topic: Silent Hill 5 has already been in development, as with Silent Hill 0rigins releasing on the PSP soon, I bet they are gonna use that to market SH5.

Maybe SH5 will be a NDS exclusive? ;)

edit: the PS3 price is finally in: 6000 NOK ($954 US)

...its like the old dreamcast days all over again...

Except MS actually has MONEY to the tune of 36+ BILLION dollars. They spent their way into this market, losing four billion with the Xbox. You think they're going to give up, bail out and fail now? With 36+ BILLION in the bank? A terrific infrastructure for Live? Windows Anywhere/Everywhere gaming?

Totally different ballgame. It's too early to give up on anyone, but the one that should be very nervous is Sony. They have very little cash on hand and are bleeding a projected two billion from their gaming division.

360 owners have no worries. PS3 owners have a few worries, but not as many as some would think.

Spring of '08...that's when we'll know.

On topic: I'm feeling decidedly un-shocked here! ;)

eh, who knows.

All I know is that PS3 has gained a ton of momentum for really no good reason and 360 is quickly receeding... its like the old dreamcast days all over again.. people come to my store all the time now and tell me how PS3 simply blows 360 away and that 200 bucks more is worth it to play madden on a PS3. So Konami could annouce every single game they have for PS3 heading for 360 too. It being on both systems doesn't seem to matter to consumers, if its on PS3, they will buy one.

We've been sold out of the 642 dollar monsters consistantly now, most popular games : Madden, Resistance, Marvel Ultimate Alliance and Need for Speed Carbon.

200 bucks more to pay Madden?! That just goes to show you that, "Its a very very, Maaaddd Woooorrrllllddd"

It really is Monday now... Don't be like Bungie with their "as long as its still monday we can announce it anytime" rule of 3 nonsense. I'm at work so it REALLY is Monday!


RELEASE! Damn you! RELEASE!

Konami Announces New Castlevania, DDR Games!
Last week Konami announced new games in its Castlevania and DDR series, bringing these renowned franchises to new platforms with all-new gameplay twists. Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles for the PSP® system delivers the classic game Castlevania: Rondo of Blood in 3D for the first time, with timeless side scrolling gameplay and incredible animations. DDR Hottest Party brings nonstop dance action to the Wii™, letting players get their whole body into the groove as they dance with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk. It's going to be an incredible 2007, so stay tuned to these pages for the latest from Konami!

I know Pineapple is a fruit. Its the only fruit allowed on a pizza.

Ideal pizza is crust + cheese + meat + cheese + meat + meat + meat.

A few years back, Pizza Hut offered pepperoni + cheese stuffed crust pizza's. Now that is pizza.

yeah it's previously posted on that same page on 2.2 as well as the 1up coverage on Friday so I don't think this announcement is it.Besides, from what I understand the quote is:

Check back to this space on Monday for several major announcements on new games from Konami! From new franchises to returning favorites, you won't want to miss the earth-shaking news. You heard it here first!"

I'm rather certain that Castlevania and DDR aren't the big news for the day, as they posted the original announcements for both those games the same days as the "big news on Monday" post, and the current post says at the end of it to "stay tuned for more announcements for 2007" or some such.

I don't think it's done yet.

Still, I'm inclined to believe we really should've just waited and ran the story AFTER the announcement. This kind of rumormongering I expect from Joystiq or ******.

Guys (and gals, I guess - oh, and torre) - there is some news in the pipeline, but I absolutely cannot say what it is until I've been given the all clear. For those bemoaning the reputation EvAv may or may not be getting, look at it this way - how would it look if we blurted everything out we knew, even when we'd promised people we wouldn't? There's a delicate line between trust and betrayal and I'm skating pretty close to it right now just so you folks know that neither I nor EvAv is pulling your chain.

Whether the news gets released today or not is not at my discretion....

And Gorvi - thanks.

I loved ZOE just fine, but it didn't sell well (the first sold decent at first due to the MGS 2 demo packed in) so I'd be disinclined to call it earth shattering...then again, those are the words of flack, and flack will call the CEO's bowel movements earth shattering if it gets the stock moving.
