There's often that one day when all of the news is focused around one company, and today seems to be Konami's day. We've already put up two stories regarding a possible new Metal Gear game to be unveiled at the show, and Konami has just added fuel to the fire by sending out this bit of hype in regards to their E3 announcements. And it reads:
“With Surprise Guests and Revolutionary Announcements, This is An Event You Do Not Want to Miss! Featuring a variety of high-profile speakers for all major platforms, Konami’s Press Conference will highlight games across all genres targeted towards players of all age groups and skill levels. Konami will feature groundbreaking announcements that you will truly not want to miss.”
Some pretty powerful words to use, Konami. Revolutionary? Groundbreaking? It seems like a Metal Gear game is all but obvious at this point, so we'd better see Kojima walk up on stage enclosed in a gigantic Jehuty mech-suit waving flags with "ZOE3" written on them. Because I swear with the words "all age groups" in that message, the last thing I want to see is a bunch of Wii games. In the, slightly altered, words of Dave Chappelle and Ashy Larry, write this down Konami: M-A-R-S. Mars, bitches. That's where [I want to go]. Red rocks! Yey, yey!
revolutionay? caught you.
Wat's up with that pic Arnold?
Read the end of the article. If you can't figure it out, you'll have to wait until someone does. I'm certain someone will.
its Chappelle. read the last paragraph.
possibly the greatest sketch comedy show ever created…
It appears i don't know no Chapelle
Lol, MARS Bitches! I've got the only two real seasons of Chappelle on DVD, love the black bush skit too. Thanks for pickin up the news while Ben's out Arnold, we do appreciate it and your funny pics.
Ahem… back to the meat of the matter, ALL genres? Does this mean we can expect a Konami RPG?
R-P-G bitches! Better be at least…

Please be metal gear please please please.
Also I agree, the last thing Konami wants to put out some Wii games.
I love Chappelle Show. Best Comedy show of our time.
Great pic selection, again Arnold.
"Oil? Wha…B*$%h u cooking?"
My favorite part of the segment. Gotta love him knocking over the water and running. Hahahaha.
I haven't seen the Chappelle Show in forever man!
Mars, hmm? Would you settle for a space colony set in the 'Policenauts' universe?
That's my pick for the most surprising announcement I could hear.
Hahaha awesome Arnold.
Mos Def looked hilarious in that skit.
Sony already has enough content announced to win E3, but if ANYTHING else comes out being an exclusive, it is a DONE DEAL.
If MGS5 is announced, then it's not just a done deal, it's time to sell all the 360's and buy a PS3.
How funny would it be for MGS4 to get announced for the 360, but MGS5 announced for the PS3? Both released on the same day, hehe.
dude mgs4 is not announced for 360 it's just a stupid rumour that keeps on poping up
I can't blame them they want it soo bad
They cant help it, they dont have much to play!
If they all want it so bad, they should just buy PS3s already instead of making up rumors.
Seriously. I wish they would stop already. If i wanted to play Queers of War that bad i would just buy a Crapbox3shity.
Revolutionary & Groundbreaking?
Konami introducing nanomachine controlled games! >_> OMG! IT METAL GEAR!!!
Would love an RPG… Konami's are great. Another Metal Gear would be great too, even if it's with Raiden…
Arnold, do you think the announcement might be that Konami may have bought some new development tool like aluminum tubes? do I need to tell you what the Eff you can do with an aluminum tube, ALUMINUM!!!
beat people to death with them?
In this day and age anything could be considered "revolutionary & groundbreaking". Honestly though, think about it? How cool would it be to play in ZOE 3 with the 3D tech that sony and everyone else was showing early this year? Imagine being inside Jehuty's frame, seeing the instrument panel floating in front of you like so many movies show now-a-days?
Cool thought huh?
Revolutionary & Groundbreaking? No.
As Stewie would say: "Ooooooooohhh yeeeeaaaaahhhh!" (in his tone of course)
As I said in the previous thread….
At 97:20:06, Kojima will unveil Metal Gear-5, at E3.
97:20:06 + 5 + E + 3(being shown on Kojima's site)
And hopefully they'll also unveil a "Tornado" game we were guessing/hoping on too
All my comrades died on Mars..
Nohman will pay.
That was priceless Arnold! Now I gotta break out my Chappelle Show dvd's!
Must have missed this being in the UK, Dillon, Rosie, anyone else from the UK here enlighten me ? lol 🙂
nah, ive never heard of it, but it was probably around before i was born lol
You tube it funny as hell
Random Steve: Then you must be 5 years old. Hahaha. It's not old at all.
lol, i watched the niggar family one- priceless
"Featuring a variety of high-profile speakers for all major platforms"
I have all three consoles – PS3, 360 & Wii, but I sincerely hope that this statement does not mean a next Kojima installment is MS-bribe-obtained-exclusive.
It maybe, but i doubt it will be MGS5. If anything it maybe ZOE3. Im sick of M$ throwing money at people hold back content from their competitors. I think with Kojima though, his work is personal. Its a matter of pride for him. Just before MGS4 was released, he said he wasn't happy with it cause they had to scale it down in order to run on the PS3. If thats the case, the MGS will never go to the 360.
MS would have to throw a lot of money for that one. 4.5 million copies of MGS4 sold. That is a lot of income. Trust me, whatever it is, it's coming to PS3.
this is sorta off topic but that konami/kojima countdown site reminded me of a scene in MGS4 where raiden is going on about being totally alone & he says something to snake like'it even rained the day i was born'and snake replies something along the lines of 'you were the lightening in that storm'(or rain)
now i'm probably a million miles off but could that site be depicting raiden's bithday storm?
if it is indeed a Metal gear game,could it be starring raiden?
I'm just guessing here!
A lot of people have speculated about that. I remember seeing a pic from a press confrence, (I think it was from the GDC) where they showed a picture of Raiden.
I think you're on the right track.
cheers mate !!
now back to watching the countdown 🙂
Arnold always finds the funniest sh*t to put up for the picture. I'm still laughing about the awesomness one.
Konami + all genres maybe a new Suikoden also
MG5 is going to be epic! Just like chappelle already is son!
"Aluminum Tubes Bitches!!!"
Oh I need a fix
I just hope that doesn't mean it's something bad for PS3 fans.
how come the site hasnt been updated all weekend?
It is a holiday weekend after all. Can't expect every site to be updated every single day.
Ben has gone on holiday for the weekend and Arnold is trying to do reviews of games I imagine. Before he can review them he needs time to play them. Ben will be back soon. 🙂
Revolutionary? As in Dance Revolution? Karaoke Revolution? And dare I say, Rock Revolution? That kind of revolutionary?
+1 vote for new Suikoden.
