Leipzig GC 07: Konami Features MSG4, And Mystery DS Game

Chances are if you’ve bought a PS3 it’s for one of two reasons – you accidentally thought you were purchasing the sleekest, most badass grill ever invented, or you really, really want to play MGS4. After a host of speculation as to whether the game would cross over to the 360, it looks as though MGS4 is firmly cemented as a PS3 exclusive, and we’re set to see a host of new information as Konami takes the stage in Leipzig later tonight.

As for Konami’s other plans for the press conference...

11:00: Koji ‘IGA’ Igarashi, Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles

12:00: New DS title team

13:00: Hideo Kojima, METAL GEAR SOLID 4: GUNS OF THE PATRIOTS

14:00: William Oertel, Silent Hill Origins/Silent Hill V

15:00: Hideo Kojima, METAL GEAR SOLID 4: GUNS OF THE PATRIOTS

16:00: Aki Saito, PES 2008

17:00: Shingo Mukaitoge, Dewy’s Adventure

Obviously the big draw remains MGS4, with two solid hours sandwiching in the juicy terror that is Silent Hill. But what of this ominously titled “New DS title?” According to Konami, it’s set to be “an all-new DS version of one of Konami’s classic arcade smashes.” My instinct is to say it will be Contra, since that was playable at Comic-Con. But who knows? There’s always a chance we’ll be seeing DDR DS. Whatever it is, hopefully “New DS title” will be a marked improvement over last year’s “Old DS title” which we all remember was something of an ambiguous letdown.
