    Maybe they wanted to put more effort into it? [​IMG]

    I thought it wasnt going to be an original game anymore, and just a port.
    If thats true then I doubt they are holding it out just to do more work on it.

    Eh, they could still need time to optimize it.
    I read that the e3 Demo had a pretty crappy framerate, so there's that.

    I hope it doesn't get delayed. I'm looking forward to this.

    WOW Nintendo just cannot get their shit together. I pray this is not true. The 3DS needs this game if Nintendo wants the handheld to sell well.

    @Frogman
    It's a remake of the game with well received elements from the MGS series in general incorporated, along with Subsistence's improved camera and probably a few extras like they did with Twin Snakes. Not a straight port per say

    @Jockel
    That demo was non-interactive and completed in three months. I'm pretty sure there's no lingering issues from a 1+ year old game demo

    Edit:
    @Hyro-Sama
    You are aware this has nothing to do with Nintendo, right?

    You're thinking about the first demo. IIRC there was a second one, in playable form.
    I could be wrong, though.

    There have been LOTS of games delayed on the original DS, and they were best than we expected:

    DQ IX
    It's a wonderful world
    etc...

    I know there were more...

    Don't be afraid, even if it is delayed, Kojima will put all his efforts in this game.

    You should've stated the word "RUMOUR" in title too, I'll just wait for an official statement before saying anything.

    Kotaku recons this is ONLY FOR AUSTRALIA.
    USA hasn't even been given a release date to slip.
    Does not seem to affect Europe.

    As long as it comes out splendid, then it'll be worth the initial fan rage. They better squeeze in some sort of anti-aliasing though. And the frame rate... they HAVE to up that frame rate too.

    The videos by Kojima Productions show that this game has horrible framerate issues. Maybe they want to polish it?

    I would want a better polished game than one which is released earlier and suffers from very obvious issues

    "Another nail in the coffin"? Is that a joke? The major Nintendo titles haven't even come out yet. Once games like Super Mario and Star Fox hit the streets, the 3DS will sell like hotcakes. I do agree it hasn't sold as well as past Nintendo systems, but I highly doubt Nintendo is in any danger of losing their pull in the market just because it hasn't sold very well the past few months. Give it time.

    Where's that third party support? Oh yeah, that's delayed too.

    The excuse I always hear is just "be patient!" The system came out 4 months ago and it's completely worthless. It's a complete joke, however.

    Star Fox 64 hit the streets and you know what made the 3DS sell that week? A new color. Star Fox debuted at #6. Ocarina of Time bumped the 3DS for a single week then it went right back to its normal spot. At this point I'm wondering if even Nintendo first parties are gonna save it.

    I'm not gonna give it time if they're not gonna give it back.

    EDIT: "yet another nail in the coffin" =/= "Last nail in the coffin".

    @Guild you are right on the HD collection part. But is it possible not to mention it in this news page? Threads kinda get off-topic.

    As for the 'Nintendo lost it's ground', carry on. Personally I don't really think first parties may effectively improve sales.

    It is suicide to launch Metal Gear Solid 3D at the same time that titles like Mario Kart, Kid Icarus and Super Mario 3D.

    Even more now that MGS3D just became a port and not a remake as shown by the tech demo from E3 2010.

    To make matters worse, Konami will release MGS3 along with two other games in HD in the same period.
    Konami is stupid, but not that stupid.

    Yeah, I caught that a minute after I posted.

    Anyway, I agree that things look bleak for the 3DS and some of the things people have said are basically just excuses to cover for Nintendo, but to say that something like this is another nail in the coffin is a bit stupid since the game wasn't cancelled, this is just a rumor as of now, and the Metal Gear series hasn't been a major money earner for Nintendo since the Gamecube days so it doesn't matter very much to begin with.

    And yet another of Nintendo's "Launch Titles" is delayed.

    Metroid Prime: Hunters, anyone? One of those games that came out "Reeeally Late" compared to the original schedule... XD
