But it probably won't happen because pubs never sell their IP unless they go bankrupt... So yeah we can only pray they go bankrupt.

Well, after this failure, the only thing we could expect is Konami licensing the Fox engine to other devs. And Pachinko, lots of lots of pachinko.

Wonder how many of those 103,651 were foolish enough to spend $10 on a second save slot.

Goodbye the legendary Metal Gear Solid. This new game is so bad.

I wish Konami would get bought out by someone who actually respects gaming. Konami was once one of the best third parties around, but now they're a mockery of their former selves, caring naught for their own legacy.
