Default Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

I just skimmed through the preview article for this game over at IGN (Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker Deep Dive - PlayStation Portable Preview at IGN). I am a huge metal gear fanboy, and this game is shaping up to be an instant classic.

I will be buying a PSP for the sole purpose of playing this game (and MGS: Portable Ops)

I played the demo and it looks pretty much like MSG3 Snake Eater which makes sense since it's supposed to take place right before that IIRC. Should be a good one.

I love Metal Gear but I didn't like Portable Ops very much. I played the JP Demo of Peace Walker and it seems the controls are much better. I still have a PSP-1000 with plenty of dead pixels. I might upgrade to a PSP-3000 before this game comes out, maybe even that Big Boss pack.

And are you sure it takes place before MGS3 headsh0t? I thought it took place after MGS: PO, so like:

MGS3
MGS: PO
MGS: PW
MG
MG2
MGS
MGS2
MGS4

PSP seem's to be falling behind in terms of a portable console. I can find games on the iphone somewhat more entertaining. But It looks like a promising release considering it's MGS.

Keep it mind that the PSP was release at the end of 2004 in Japan, so it's more than 5 years old.

I can't wait for Peace Walker to come out.

Yeah PSP is the console I play the least. The last game I even played for it was God of War: Chains of Olympus, and that came out over two years ago.

Yeah, but the GO has the same hardware as the PSP.

its out...reviewing very well.

I want to buy the Big Boss Pack (with the camo PSP and case) seeing as I don't own a PSP...where can I get it in Canada?

otherwise I will buy the pack with MGS:PW and the green PSP

EDIT: I see some (sealed) floating around on ebay, but I am a little tentative..would rather buy from a retailer.

Yeah I can't find the camo pack anywhere locally. I'm going to go get that green PSP pack tomorrow I think.
