    I rather doubt that's what it means. MGS is very button heavy and signoficantly complex, any iteration of it constructed for the iPhone would lose significant layers of complexity and become a sliver of its console brethren
     
  3. but a mobile version of MGS came out on verizon phones. sure, it couldn't achieve the density of what you would expect from a full-fledged console game, but you can't compare the capacity of mobile devices to gaming consoles. Also, If a company like gameloft is able to do brothers in arms, then i think konami is fully capable of making a good MGS title (non tactical) for the iphone/ipod touch.

    I think Metal Gear Ac!d would work on iPhone, a real MGS game not so much.

    Well I have to agree 100%, Plus that little i + ! = MGS is a little intriguing if you ask me...
    ::EDIT:: On second thought maybe it is for the 360....?

    I doubt Sony would allow Metal Gear to come to the iPhone.

    Sony doesn't own Metal Gear.

    Actually this is by far the best expalanation for this teaser that I've heard so far.. I'm really pretty convinced. A CCG like Acid would definately be doable on iPhone.

    i(Phone) +(Ac!d) = MGS...

    It will just be Metal Gear Solid 4 Subsistence for the Xbox 360. The green color and power button image are too similar to the Xbox 360 versus anything iPhone related.

    Give me Metal Gear Acid without the card element, as much as I tried I could NOT get into using the cards. I would love to see the Acid series as a menu based RPG though (not for movement, only for combat), that would rock.
