With the 360 having another great Fall this year, who knows if I would still buy a PS3 for this game and Tekken 6 (my only two reasons).

MGS4 is out - Anyone have it??
The PS3's saving grace has finally arrived with Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots and yes it is amazing. This is perhaps the only time I wished I had a PS3 now to witness Kojima's greatness and an end of an era with Snake. My thing with the MGS games like most people that never played the series is that I like to watch it, but not play it. With the refined controls that I experienced at E for All last year, I would give it a chance and perhaps it is the hardcore "Game of the Forever" as NeoGAF peeps would say (they thought SSBB would be it, guess not - same thing for GTA IV). I don't care if I skipped the first three if I want to play through 4, I think it is the closest thing to a summer movie and yet this game's storyline is likely better than most of this year's summer blockbusters anyway. I read and watched some reviews this morning and it seems it is definitely flawed, but still a must-play for any gamer out there. It does solve everything that the series had set up in the previous games into one giant cluster.
