So my friend had some problems getting a Playstation 3 and Metal Gear Solid 4 this week. We both decided to help him out. We got the system and the game today after a bit of searching in V-Mall, Greenhills.
These stores are pretty good places to get brand new Xbox 360/PS3 games because they seem to get new titles on time:
Mr. Dynamic in V-Mall
ITECH in Market Market
It was an interesting day because we had to haggle and ask around at some stores to get the best deal for a PS3. Seems the best place we found was E-Stop in V-mall. So we got MGS4 at Mr. Dynamic and the PS3 itself at E-Stop.
The Playstation 3 isn't mine....but I always find it fun to buy one of these things [a brand new game console]. :D My friend was nice enough to let me play MGS4 on it even before he gets his hands on the console and the game itself. I've never played on the PS3 extensively, so you could say this was a more complete introduction for me to the platform.
Impressions on MGS4: They spend a lot of time on focusing on the characters. Fans of the series will probably pick up on more details than I did....this game is really meant for them. Perhaps this is the Playstation 3's first great game.
