PSA: If you're looking forward to Ground Zeroes, don't watch The Phantom Pain's trailer

No new Metal Gear Solid V spoilers or details here, I promise. Earlier today, I put up my preview for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, and in it, I wrote a lot about the game. I was careful to steer clear of any s...

Dying to hear all the dirt but don't want to take the time to read my full preview of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes? Well, if you're not a fan of verbose explanations, I can't imagine you're much of a Metal Gear Solid fan. In any case, here's a quick rundown of some classic Metal Gear elements that you won't be finding in the latest release.

Breaking New Ground: Metal Gear Solid V's Tactical approach to Open World photo
Breaking New Ground: Metal Gear Solid V's Tactical approach to Open World
by Max Scoville

Considering that the series just celebrated its 25th anniversary, it might seem a little odd that Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is only the fifth game in the series. However, if you’re counting Peace Walker, it’s the sixth, and the seventh if you include Portable Ops, too. If you're counting every game with the words "Metal Gear" in the title, it's something like the thirteenth game in the series.

Plenty of other game franchises would've retired or rebooted by now (and plenty have) but somehow, this one manages to consistently reinvent itself, all the while staying within the confines of the same universe. Ground Zeroes makes some of the most drastic changes the series has seen in over a decade, while still managing to feel familiar.

Hey, did you see those Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes track jackets and sneakers that Puma's making? They're pretty cool, but a franchise with such awesome character and mechanical designs really deserves more creative merchandising. Here are a few ideas.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes platform comparison
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is one of the three major new releases in March. We just found out the Xbox One version is in 720p, while the PlayStation 4 version will be in 1080p.

So what does that mean when the different versions are in motion? This, this is what it means. Konami went ahead and made this comparison video, so fight. Fight for your platforms, and make your enemies bleed because your version is probably better than the other version because videogames!

by Chris Carter

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is arriving on a number of different platforms, and differences are bound to happen.  Because of that fact, Konami has provided a series of screenshots and information to "help you find the right version."

Here's the biggest bit of info -- the PS4 version will sport 1080p resolution with 60fps, and the Xbox One will run at 720p also at 60fps. On the 360 and PS3, they'll both run at 720p and 30fps. You can also head over to the website itself and look at some direct comparison shots.

So yeah, there you have it. Thankfully, Konami is being pretty upfront with the differences, however they came about.

The problem with Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes' price photo
The problem with Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes' price
by Steven Hansen

I don't think I've ever complained a game was too short. Except Persona 4: Golden. I could have played that for another 400 hours. And I've always laughed at the ridiculous price per hour breakdown some Internet goers abide by. I found Thirty Flights of Loving to be more complete feeling in its 15 minute run time than many 15 hour games I've slogged through.

But the wild world of variable pricing models, downloads, and paying for games that don't even exist yet has complicated my more generalized, "price doesn't matter," and "quality over quantity" stance.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes -- a short prologue to the full Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain -- will cost anywhere from $20 to $40. That's problematic.

Welp, here's your exciting video game news! Lots and lots of fun things, like Nintendo's financial problems, [obvious] lack of plans to move into mobile games, a single Super Smash Bros. screen, and the rumored new console,"Fusion." Microsoft, meanwhile, is in hot water over secretly paying Machinima partners to say nice things about the Xbox One. Alienware's Steam Machines will be un-upgradeable AND annualized, oh boy! Resident Evil 4 is coming out for PC in HD, Sony's got some great Playstation Plus deals, the Candy Crush Saga guys have copyrighted the word "Candy," Disney has abandoned copyrights for Star Wars 1313, and there's a sexy new Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes action figure.

Kojima teases the PlayArts Kai Quiet figure

Hideo Kojima teased a couple of images of the upcoming PlayArts Kai Quiet figure for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. These are "in progress" shots, and, well, it's exactly what you probably imagined what the Quiet figure was going to look like. It's a nice lookalike, but it doesn't compare to the Quiet cosplay of course.
