He has to keep saying it because I've never heard of a game releasing on steam like that without an actual preload unless he's saying you should use a VPN which is a really bizarre thing for a publisher's representative to say.

I think he's largely confused by everything that's going on regarding it and not sure what to say.

A single save-file confirmed, what you unlock are harder versions of missions.

Still no answer about CQCing captured larger creatures. I want to wrestle bears and crocs.

So when he says pre-purchase does that mean I can preload or I can play at that time?

because he keeps getting badgered by people asking about VPNs and poo poo to try and get it a bit early, when it was supposed to be "midnight wherever you are"

It's a vicious cycle

and they're probably going to gently caress it up anyway

So still no news about psn preload time?

Also, for the goon who is going on a honeymoon to paris: The MGS cafe is only open between now and release date so don't get your hopes up.

I think he is just bound by working for Konami PR. When people are asking for absolutes, the only answer he can give is 10am PST Sept1. There are stipulations, but it kinda sorta varies. I mean, it is simple. If you have the game on your Steam list come 12am Sept 1 NZ timezone, you can start download and playing, no VPN necessary, but it may get hairy, and as a Konami rep he can't give anyone a 100% on that since the game only officially unlocks until after GabeN's Tuesday morning breakfast.

Which is why it's weird that they still went out of their way to get an unlock earlier than Gabe's breakfast hour (yet no preload!), because that's when 99.9% of Steam games release.

Probably has to do with the software region and the options to publishers. Since there is only three regions, Japan, Ru/CIS, and Rest-of-world, a midnight release technically means as soon as the ROW region unlocks, it is simply unlocked. The same applies for the "official" release of 10am GabeN Standard Time. Everyone would have to wait until then.

I know there have been rolling releases, but my guess is you have to pay Valve a bit of change to have someone on staff to push the button for each timezone, or else release the game as a variety of publishing regions, so they unlock "roughly" at midnight based on what region the client owns.

Anyway, I'm sure there are tons of other publisher considerations, and when you're responding on twitter, saying "you can 100% play the game at 12am NZ Sept 1" could lead to people barking about lies when the Konami servers for FOBs or save data transfer until 10am PST Sept1. You literally can not play the game 100% until GabeN time, but communicating the nuances and what you mean by 100% in however many character twitter limits (or the audience is willing to even read) is difficult. The best PR move is to just say 10am PST. Anyone capable of reading between the lines can glean the fact that you can still download and play once it hits 12am in New Zealand.

So, does this game come out 8 AM on the 31st here in the Glorious United States of America? Because I'm very hype to play METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN.

I know I'm 10 years behind on this and whatever but I just finished GZ. Holy jesus the credits took longer. I hope the actual game isn't like an hour long unless you turn over every possible stone and shoot every ketchup bottle possible.

I still have no loving idea whats going on story wise, I should probably go back and play them all again.

Without going into the numbers, every review is reporting something around 30 hours to complete the game. Getting into the number of mission, there is no way you're going to be finishing this game in just a couple of hours, and not because of something like travel times doubling "playtime". The game is huge.

I played it for like 4 hours yesterday and when I loaded it up again earlier the title screen said I was 2% complete. I played another 4 hours today, and I haven't even seen Quiet yet, yet alone gotten out of Afghanistan. This game is massive. Its a huge toy set and there is never a dull moment.
