MGS Remastered and Uncharted beta

All this time I’ve been thinking it’s just Peacewalker receiving the HD treatment as it migrates from PSP to PS3…I had no idea that three titles were being packaged and sold as one like they’re doing with God of War!! Three titles, MGS2: Sons of Liberty, MGS3: Snake Eater and Peacewalker all in one package…and releasing in November and in HD??  Marvellous!! Oh and the Uncharted multiplayer beta is pretty sweet, if you haven’t downloaded it and taken advantage of the free upgrade to PS+ status for one month, then download it now…it’s completely worth it 🙂

Some more gaming goodness :)

E3 is nearly done for this year and I just wanted to post some things that made my day and I’m looking forward to in the coming year, First of all, the big one Wii U, I really can’t wait til Nintendo start doing roadshows with this bad boy like they did with the Wii in 2006. I’ll be surprised if this isn’t the case as this is clearly yet another revolutionary console implementing a unique control system much as the Wii changed the market 5 years ago.

The other hot system revealed by Sony was the handheld formerly known as the NGP, which now has the final name of the PS Vita, Vita being Life in Latin. There were some incredible videos revealed for the Vita with Uncharted: Golden Abyss being a massive standout. Of particular importance was the US price revealed for the WiFi model which was $249.99. This is the same price that the 3DS costs in the US and the 3DS ended up costing $349.95AU. This hopefully means that Vita will follow the same pricing format and place it on even footing, price wise, with the Nintendo 3DS. The 3G & WiFi model was priced at $399.99US. Vid below showing the Vita’s capabilities and below that an Uncharted: Golden Abyss video…droolworthy 🙂

 

I managed to shift some EB store credit around and snagged the Zelda Collector’s Edition of the 3D remake of the Ocarina of Time for the 3DS which looks like this…

To see the awesome celebrations that Nintendo are doing to celebrate Zelda’s 25th anniversary, check out part 1 of the Nintendo E3 conference available HERE.

 

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception is shaping up to be another sublime outing in the Uncharted canon, just check out the trailer below.

And lastly, just a great compilation video showcasing the games on Vita.

P.S. Anyone else think Uncharted’s Nathan Drake and Kevin Pereira from Attack of the Show share a striking similarity??

It’s uncanny!!

Kojima and “transfarring”

Cool video that explains the recent term coined by Metal Gear Solid creator, Hideo Kojima, to explain how a saved Peacewalker file can be “transfarred” to your PSP to continue on the go and then “transfar” your save game back to the PS3 so you can continue at home. This will be implemented for the new Metal Gear HD when it hits the PS3. Transfarring…hmm…
