    "Witness the story of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots as told via the iPhone, in the action-packed official trailer for Metal Gear Solid Touch.

    As revealed last week, Metal Gear Solid Touch basically retells the story of Metal Gear Solid 4 from a different perspective, with an over-the-shoulder view of Solid Snake's mullet as you tap the screen to take out enemies. I suppose it will be nice for those who want a quick synopsis of the story without have to sit through all of the cutscenes, but beyond that it doesn't look all that exciting.

    Having said that, it will sell millions."

    Looks like crap. They need to understand that the iPhone will never be a gaming device (and this is coming from an iPhone hardcore user [​IMG] ) . They're just making that "game" with the name MGS to make lots of money. It's a shame...

    When I heard this was an on the rails shooter I didnt have high hopes anyway. You are kind of missing the point of MGS gameplay if you get rid of the stealth and all that and just focus on the action element. But for an ipod touch game I dont think it looks that bad, its on an ipod for Gods sake, and come on Ive seen far worse looking games on the ipod. It should at the very least be fun hopefully.

    :| I'm allergic to BS *ahem* Does Sony own part of Konami, like Nintendo owns Pokemon or Microsoft owns Bungie? Because if so It's no wonder they let that rip off go on an Apple product, it looks like it will make iPhones/ipod touches sales drop. And yes, it will set a record for selling the most units just because of the name and clearly not the game, the game part SUCKS! It's almost as fail as:

    As I recall, the iPod (Classic, I think) showed up in one of your menus in MGS4 (PS3) as a way to change the in-game music. Apple had product placement in that title. I would assume both companies have some sort of small partnership now, if not just this one-time exchange of mingling in each others platforms.

    I really don't see why anyone would buy this. No wonder some companies never make any money [​IMG]

    This isnt Metal gear.. I mean it is, but this is like a really crappy spin-off.

    I love my iPod Touch, but it isnt a gaming console.. unless its racing or something similar. the lack of buttons hurts it.. and then we get games like this [​IMG]

    people dont be complaining THIS IS GREAT!

    as in yeah sure the game looks so unbeleivably bad but. . . . think about it if this game is coming out on the iphone/ipodtouch this means that this game can come out for different consoles Im kinda happy actually

    But yeah the game looks bad :L

    Theres loads of Apple products in MGS4, Otacon uses a macbook throughout and you collect "ipod music" all through the game. I think Snake has an ipod you listen to that music on, but I never cared enough to try it out.
