MGS4 allegedly "nearly done" and is at "bug testing phase"

Forums - Sony Discussion - MGS4 allegedly "nearly done" and is at "bug testing phase"

The beta phase can take easy a year...But it depends of course what the bugs are and in a big title like MGS4 can it be big bugs ^^''.






Around the Network

The demo they showed at TGS seemed completely bug free to my eyes. Assassin's Creed looked buggy at E3 and it came out only about 3 or 4 months later.



We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers…Also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls.  The only thing that really worried me was the ether.  There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge. –Raoul Duke

It is hard to shed anything but crocodile tears over White House speechwriter Patrick Buchanan's tragic analysis of the Nixon debacle. "It's like Sisyphus," he said. "We rolled the rock all the way up the mountain...and it rolled right back down on us...."  Neither Sisyphus nor the commander of the Light Brigade nor Pat Buchanan had the time or any real inclination to question what they were doing...a martyr, to the bitter end, to a "flawed" cause and a narrow, atavistic concept of conservative politics that has done more damage to itself and the country in less than six years than its liberal enemies could have done in two or three decades. -Hunter S. Thompson

Erm... this really isn't anything special, it's a game going into Beta phase, Alpha phase which is designing the game and it's content, putting it together and adding gameplay features is almost done. Beta phase will be the testing of the completed thing, refining, tweaking and fixing will be all that's taking place. While I quickly have the chance to say - Remember that all you Killzone 2 fanboys and your pre-alpha crap lol.

This is standard procedure for every single game ever, it doesn't mean the game's gonna come out next week lol, I bet the wait for MGS4 will still be a lengthy one! ;)

According to Konami they are announcing a release date in Feb.

 We saw like what?  5% of the game?  We don't know how things run on with the other 95%.






Speaking about Bugs, I love the line of serious sam in serious sam 2 when you are fighting a big bee: There will be no bugs in this game.

Or when you are fighting smaller bugs: This game is full of bugs:P

Just love it.

Eh... Let the people talk the 360 version. It's just providing more hype for the game to backfire on them when it gets released.



"Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, IT IS THE LEADERS of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY."  --Hermann Goering, leading Nazi party member, at the Nuremberg War Crime Trials

 I wouldn't use AC as an example of how long it takes to bug test a game.

What the hell are you talking about? lmfao, you've just made one hell of a fool of yourself.

Where does Gears of War come into this?

I mention Killzone 2, because of everybody who has praised the game whilst it's been in its supposed 'Pre-Alpha' stage for all these years of development when it's supposed to be out this year. Of course it's in pre-alpha ;)

Oh and furthermore - I hate Halo.

So how is what I posted stupid? I explained the basic timeline of development for a video game, any video game, and related what I said to MGS4's development stage. 

That enough for ya?

 

Sorry to digress everybody, had to clear that up with the cool guy here.

Gears of war is just a random game i picked thats coming out for 360.

Okay my bad then, your not a Halo fanboy. I'll admit I'm a Killzone fanboy so I hate people talking s*** about it.

And i thought your post was stupid cause it sounds like your just trying to insult the game and get people to think it will be delayed again. And I'm not a MGS fan I just want to see it released on time.
