Yeah... they like making parallells like that.... one of the newest trailers says we have something special to look forward to when the global release occurs. I believe one of the trailers ended with a end of Game like sequence with Mr Kojima talking to the director of Konami.
They talked about an event, and how the VIP was ready for their use.
It of course ended with.
"Whatever you Say... Mr Company President..."
EDIT: and full marks for not watching till release Billy... is it the same thing as the MGS2 DVD?
And I presume it's a date?
Room of Saucy Banter on Twelfth, or to the MoleStation?
well chris is at work so gather at mine. I haven't been watching the trailers but head to Gametrailers.com - The Source For Video Game Media and they have interviews with David Hayter on the bonus round. it's very well done and doesn't ruin anything. i'm just gonna wait til release.
I haven't watched the DVD but i opened the case and its like a background to all the Snakes. From what I can tell.
I would have to guess that the date is pretty important if they pushed for a simultaneous global release.

It has a lot to do with Forgetting and information being passed on, which was the theme for MGS2, that I'm guessing is celebrated in MGS4 as well
Billy: Who's gonna be there? Pandy and Steve, I imagine? Maybe Archanist? lol
So... I'm thinking all three of us write a review for this. It's an epic game... and we're all gamers with over fourteen years under our belts. I think we can write a full length in depth review of several pages. That would be AWESOME.
the full hype will probably hit me tomorrow and i wont be able to do anything apart from imagine how fun the game will be. I mainly just want to see how the story turns out. it could have all the MGS2 features and nothing more i'd still just play for story. I still have my copy from launch day.
id expect nothing less from a metal gear game though. each one has shown what the PS console is capable of and even what can be done in terms of gameplay. can't wait for tomorrow, ill be up nice and early for it.
well after picking it up and playing it i find that all the skills i had during the previous games don't mean much anymore. gonna take a while for me to go back into sneak mode. Although i do blame the game for making unsuspecting headshots so tempting in the first minute. loving it so far and ive only played the opening and a bit more.
