Metal Gear – Social Ops (by Konami, via GREE)

At the Metal Gear 25th Anniversary event today, Konami announced that a new game set in the Metal Gear’verse will be coming to iOS

in the guise of a card game this Autumn/Winter. Powered by the Unity 3D engine and utilising the GREE social gaming platform, Social Ops will see you reliving key moments from past games in the series.

At E3 we saw a few examples of card games using GREE, such as the Gangstar spinoff from Gameloft. No doubt the idea of a card game version of Metal Gear will garner quite a few groans from iOS gamers, hoping instead for a fully fledged Metal gear entry on iOS. However, with Kojima Productions handling the planning of the game, we’ll reserve judgement for now.

Look out for a teaser trailer to hit soon.

My dream is Indigo Prophecy (Fahrenheit) for iOS...

Saw this story on another iOS site and agreed with them, when i heard about a iOS Metal Gear Solid game i thought YESSSS, then i read it was a 'card game' and then thought nooooooooo.

Love the variety of games on iOS but just cant get into any card games

Stay, these guys just don't take iOS seriously, that's why I like epic games, they actually spend time to make great games for this platform

Tap, Page change, Tap, Page change, Tab, Page change,...

If there is one Company that has even less Gameplay in their Games then Zynga/Glu Games then Gree would be the Mother of all dumbed down Gameplay.

This should be a sad Day for all Metal Gear Solid Fans and the only thing I can say to Konami for allowing it that it had come that far would be...
<Censored> You!
