If you check the list of games that have received a perfect score from Famitsu, you may not agree with every title.
However, considering the popular and widespread status of the premier Japanese gaming publication, it's always worth noting. And the latest blockbuster game to score four perfect 10s from Famitsu is actually a portable title; it goes by the name of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker . This long-awaited entry in the legendary series is bound to be big, and it seems that mastermind Hideo Kojima will once again be rewarded for his efforts. The game will launch this month in Japan and on June 8 in North America, and it'll be interesting to see if the Western critics respond with such unbridled praise. Really, despite the difference in tastes between Western and Japanese gamers, nailing down a 40/40 from Famitsu is one heck of an accomplishment. Of course, the series in question can do no wrong in Japan and it's not exactly surprising, but at the same time, our anticipation level just went up a few notches. Who's planning to snag this one? Or who's planning to finally pick up a PSP just for the sake of playing this instant handheld classic?
We're going to make a prediction right here and now: Peace Walker will win Game of the Year for the PSP. You heard it here first. We're all kinds of psychic.
