Will believe the AAA when I see the game, I love Ori but its not a big studio (56 on LinkedIn) but yeah, remember the 3rd-person ARPG part of it.

Ori 2 production values looked insane for a side scroller

Could definitley see them tackle a AAA 3D game next. They have 80+ people too. Not that much smaller than Housemarque

They have made many remasters. MGS3 remake might be in good hands.

Yea I mean I am willing to give them benefit of the doubt since they have done a good job on ports/Remasters. But thats totally different than remaking a game from scratch which it sounds like at least one of the titles is getting.

With how they did PES/Winning Eleven and MGS, I don't trust them one bit.

I'm just happy they finally decided to do something video game related with the IPs.

Hopefully something good will come out of this.

How the FUCK do you not give your dormant but classic IP to Bluepoint?


Watch these stupid motherfuckers fumble three of the most prestigious classic IP's ever.


When working for Sony (and before they were bought by them) Bluepoint has only remastered games owned by Sony. Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, God of War, Demon's souls and others. Bluepoint Metal Gear collection and Titanfall X360 were published by their respective owners.

Sony are not going to remaster games they don't own when they have plenty of great old games (Ico, Bloodborne, Jak & Daxter etc.) they own without any PS5 remaster yet.

Konami is set to revive Metal Gear, Castlevania and Silent Hill​


Konami also intends to release remasters of the original Metal Gear Solid games for modern consoles, ahead of the larger project, we understand.

Just need the PS1 Classic on my Xbox to be happy

Unless Bluepoint makes multi-platform games it wouldn't make sense to have a Sony 1st party studio make a 3rd party title. There are plenty of talented Chinese developers. I'd want to see the games before passing judgment.

One thing I worry about MGS remakes is the voice acting. I don't really want to play MGS3 with new voices. I hope Konami realizes that David Hayter needs to be involved.

Give it all to me. Metal Gear Solid 3 remake. 4k remasters, including Metal Gear Solid 4. That's all I want.

At least with China's new mandates, any MGS2 remake that eventually happens will automatically swap Raiden's model out with a chiseled Schwarzenegger look alike wearing a "Never be game over," shirt, but with the pig head swapped with Winnie the Pooh.

We dont need a MGS3 remake,
but I very much want to see a brand new Metal Gear. There simply has to be a hungry game director out there who wants to try their shot at the series. Theres still nothing in gaming that has that military/supernatural style - the series must continue.

Its like the Vertigo Hellblazer series. It went from Moore, Delano, Ennis, Jenkins, Ellis, Azzarello, Carey, Diggle, Milligan - all different styles but all added their own flavor and remained high quality throughout. There has to be someone out there who can do Metal Gear justice and continue the legacy.

What games has Sony developed?

Everything to come out of Japan Studio, Polyphony, all the joint productions connected to them.

The thing is if you're talking about prominent Japanese developers, not too many are actually independent - they are all tied to bigger publishers or platform holders. Now given its fairly unusual for publishers to co-produce with other publishers, the field of potential options is actually pretty limited. Especially once you remove teams who have a track-record doing a very specific sort of game that isn't comparable to Silent Hill.

This Castlevania "reimagination" will be a 3D soulslike, isn't it? Hopefully they can churn out a new 2D title too.

Would you guys want them to use the updated 3DS version gameplay for the MGS3 remaster? It could be interesting if it was an option but I want it to be like the original.

Don't you guys get bored of these baseless rumours about Konami all the time?

Multiple outlets now corraborating the rumors. This could be legit.

Edit:
MGS is the game that needs a faithfull remake, being a ps one game, not mgs 3. That one is also a more ambitious undertaking for your first go at remaking mgs games.

Mgs remake by a Chinese studio? I dunno. Are there any note worthy Chinese game studios out there at the moment?

Konami Apologises for the State of eFootball at Launch - Push Square

Japanese publisher Konami has issued an apology for the sorry state of eFootball at launch, which has become the butt of many a joke over the past 24 hours or so. Writing on Twitter, the official eFootball account said: "We are very sorry for the problems, and want to assure everyone we will take all concerns seriously and strive to improve the current situation." The team has received feedback concerning game balance, questionable cutscenes and facial expressions, and player movement.

The statement continues: "This work will be continuously updated, quality will be improved and content will be added consistently. From next week onward, we will prepare for an update in October, while receiving further opinions through questionnaires to our users."

Ever since the game launched yesterday morning, the internet has been ablaze with disapproving comments and visual captures of how truly broken eFootball can get. That includes examples of how bad Lionel Messi can look and players disappearing. We highlighted as much in our Hands On impressions: "The sad reality is that while eFootball had the opportunity to be disruptive, it’s the best advertisement for FIFA 22 that EA Sports could have asked for. Konami’s got a mountain to climb to save this series’ season, and it’s going to take more than Sam Allardyce to keep its hopes alive."
