Castlevania: Symphony of the Night coming to PS4

According to the newly discovered description given by the ESRB ratings board the two games will be included together in a collection release planned for the PlayStation 4. It is unclear at this time if other consoles such as Nintendo Switch and Xbox will also receive the release, but it is likely.

Metal Gear Online 3 Beta Info Leaks and Forward Operating Base Cheats

MEtal-Gear-Solid-V

Hacking, Glitching, Cheating, it’s all been done before and it’s happening again to Forward Operating Base mode in Metal Gear Solid V by Hideo Kojima, Kojima Productions, and maintained by publisher Konami. The full Metal Gear Online 3 mode will be released in a matter of weeks (October 2015) on PlayStation 4, PS3, Xbox ONE, and Xbox 360 versions of the game with the PC version receiving its online mode during January 2016, but Forward Operating Base is out now and reports are coming in as to the problems online cheats have already posed to its deployment.

The Forward Operating Base Cheat involves a hack which is being distributed online allowing players to become invulnerable in the competitive player vs. player gameplay. Obviously this completely disrupts the fun factor of a competitive multiplayer game and can have huge impact on the player count in the form of a herd of players quitting due to being cheated and hacked out of wins or even a fair shot. The hope is that a patch will be released to address this software which may also have effects on the story mode of Metal Gear Solid V itself.

Metal Gear Online 3 Beta Info:

– Play as Male or Female

– Level 10 Maximum Cap

– Ascension

– Matchmaking, with full Host / Join features

– Party System w/ 2 players teleporting to each other

– Game Modes: Base, Rescue Mission, Team Deathmatch, Team Sneaking

Ironically enough, this information comes from the behest of hackers who have lifted details about the coming release from the files of Metal Gear Solid V on Windows PC. Credit goes to MGOLeague for the initial report.

Official Confirmation from Konami is expected to release in the next week or two.

Phil Spencer Puts an End to the Silent Hills Xbox One Exclusive Rumor

14-pt-silent-hill-ps4-7

Yesterday a rumor surfaced, stating that Microsoft was in talks with Konami over the acquisition of the Silent Hill franchise for “billions of dollars”. The rumor also claimed that the game was 80% complete and would be revealed at E3 as an Xbox One exclusive with a March 2016 release date.

If that sounds somewhat ridiculous and false to you, that’s because it is. Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft’s Xbox division and Microsoft Studios, went ahead and shot the rumor down on twitter, claiming he didn’t want fans to be mislead.

There you have it, straight from the horse’s mouth. Which means the future of the Silent Hill franchise is still unknown.

Is Konami Having Bigger Problems Than We Think?

Konami Sillent Hills Stock Market Kojima Productions

Recently it became known that Hideo Kojima and Konami are no longer on good terms and after Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’s completion he will probably not be a part of the company at all, P.T. will be pulled from PSN never to be seen again (the demo of Silent Hills released to much acclaim as a viral marketing stunt), and Silent Hills will probably never see the light of day. But today even stranger news as well as rumored explanations are hitting the Internet by storm. In a totally unexpected move, Konami has removed themselves from the New York Stock Exchange completely. In addition to this, an anonymous source within Konami claims that Kojima Productions has been dis-assembled as well as the other Konami teams working on various franchises such as Pro Evolution Soccer and Castlevania.

While it is unclear how many more console games Konami will be developing and publishing, the sources state that developers have been grouped into categories of one generic team each focusing on a different type of development (for example, “the graphics team”, “the audio team”, etc.) while developing multiple games at once, primarily unheard of mobile titles as Konami’s CEO begins to shift gears attempting to increase the profit margin of their portfolio by tapping into the Japan smartphone gaming craze. More rumors from the same anonymous source go on to state some very far fetched stuff which would normally not make it to print on RealGamerNewz, but because of Konami’s recent actions they do appear to be more likely to us than we like. Details such as employee accounts being wiped, Internet blackouts, electricity blackouts, and mandatory changing of team locations to keep employees scattered rather than unified are coming to light.

Please take all of this as a grain of salt while we reach out to Konami for comments. However, even if only half of this is true, things are not looking great.

Editor’s Note: Although the intent to take down the demo remains, Apologies for the earlier post exactly when P.T. demo is no longer being available after December 13th, 2015. Turns out the duration was for the twitter user’s PS Plus membership. Apparently the demo is only available for PS Plus members in Germany.
I should have looked more into this before writing about it. Again I apologize.

Lupin The Third & Metal Gear Solid Collide In A Animated Mash-Up Intro.

Lupin MGS

When one thinks about the 80s they probably think of Lupin The Third and Metal Gear, but no one ever though that the two would ever been seen together until a few years ago. There was an unknown animator who dropped a mash-up opening of Lupin The Third with the cast of Metal Gear Solid and even though the creator is seemingly no where to be found the video lives via youtube. Check out the mash-up below and be sure to keep it locked to RGN for all your Metal Gear Solid News.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Global Sales Likely Around 1 Million

Metal-Gear-Solid-V

NPD numbers are back for the Xbox ONE and PlayStation 4 title Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (which effectively introduces the forthcoming Phantom Pain installment of the franchise). With 204K of the sales being on PS4 / XO, 74K were still made on legacy Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles.

In Japan the game is looking at over 340,000 sales tabulated thus far – and with an estimate for Europe temporarily holding the spot for real EU numbers it’s easy to see that MGSV:GZ has likely sold about a million copies at this time.

Many have grabbed the game already and feel that it’s a title that gets them pumped up for the Phantom Pain release coming down the line. These numbers show that the installment of that effect is decent, the numerous price drops Ground Zeroes underwent before, after, and during its launch certainly didn’t hurt either.

More updates and adjustments to this info will be made by analysts as Konami releases more information thereby expanding the context of the MGSV sales conversation.
