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

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.

HOW TO GET IT TO WORK ON 5.50 GEN-B!

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:

release:5.55:
build:3062,0,3,1,0:builder@vsh-build6
system:50781@release_550,0x05050010:
vsh:p6399@release_550,v50953@release_550,20090415:
target:1:WorldWide

(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.
