TGS 09: Download Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker right now

11:00 AM on 09.24.2009 // Jim Sterling

A brand new trailer has surfaced for Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker and it is stupidly amazing. If you're an MGS fan, you owe it to yourself to hit that link and check it out. The story sounds like a true-blue Metal Gear Solid game, and it's almost a shame that this is going to the PSP and not a console.

I am getting very excited indeed for this new game, and have the TGS demo all downloaded and ready to try. How about you chaps, want to try it right now? You can download the demo from this torrent or via IGN.  Installation is easy - just check the release notes below for installation.

Pumped for more portable MGS, or are you longing for a console version?

Here's how to install it:

# You need Firmware 6.0 on the PSP (Not if you use version.txt ;))
# Download and unzip the file below.
# Install the file by going into USB Mode on the PSP.
# On your computer go to the PSP folder, then the game folder, then drop "NPJH90063" into that folder.

Enjoy the demo, and know that if you get a rank of A or S you get an exclusive PSP wallpaper. Also, if you have a friend with this demo, you'll be able to play co-op.


First of all, make sure you have CFW 5.50 GEN-B.
Now get into recovery mode > Advanced > Toggle USB (flash0)

Now on your PC, create a text file in notepad and copy/paste the following line:


(NOTE: In notepad this will appear as one line, keep it like that)
Save the text file as call it ''version.txt''

Now, go to Computer > Memory stick (Flash0) > VSH > ETC
Here you will find the version.txt file. Make a backup and then copy the version.txt file you just made there. Overwrite it.

Now, you will ''trick'' the game so it thinks you have firmware version 5.55, while you actually have 5.50.

Went to play MGSV, got prompted to download the MGO data; it's not on the PS Store yet. Or maybe it's Kojima-san's way of telling me it's not the real MGO data, but is instead a janitor who once protected me from a puddle of pee and now wears my face.

Recently watched the Cannon Films documentary, by the director of Not Quite Hollywood. Super entertaining, hilarious, and it almost made me want to watch some of the Cannon films. Almost.

Tip for those who have plasma TVs and are playing MGSV; go into settings and make the weapon icon only appears when you're aiming. I had to buy a new TV because the weapon icon got permanently burned into my plasma.

I was excited to learn one of my favorite Philip K. Dick novels, The Man in the High Castle, would be receiving its own TV show. After watching the pilot, I'm cautiously optimistic. Looking forward to the rest in November.

I'm going to be honest; this is my new favourite line in anything ever. GOTY 2015 and all that. Also cocks: [img][/img]
I thought Laura Kate's Destiny piece for Polygon was pretty neat.

Bungie have decided Kojima isn't the only one who can do 4th wall breaking shenanigans. Congratulations Destiny players, you're all now The Taken King.
I have (jokingly) wanted a remake/sequel to Geist. And then I went to YouTube to watch a longplay to see it in action again and thought, "nevermind!"

I'd been worried that Jim had been losing his sanity with all the Steam sludge he's always attacking. If you've been feeling the same way, good news. His new vid warmed that void and reminded me that I follow him because he had no sanity to start with. ;)

Reading the Star Citizen expose reminded me of the whole Firefall mess last year. [url=""]Found the gamefront article [/url]

I went from listening to the soundtrack of SMT IV, to the soundtrack to Mario Kart 8, Smash 4, Fire Emblem, and now chilling with some Mother 3. All of it was pretty awesome by the way.

After the 11th, I'm going into cryosleep until SMT IV Final is out. I'm sure Mike, Occams and Strider can manage without me. [img][/img]
