Konami Announces Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops Plus

portableopsplus.jpgIf you're one of the many PSP owners whose played Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops and thoroughly enjoyed both its single player campaign and multiplayer component, even if almost everyone and their mother cheats, then you'll be glad to know Konami has announced Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops +


Portable Ops + can be seen as a revised version of Portable Ops, but it really isn't. Portable Ops + is essentially a multiplayer expansion pack complete with new characters (as can be evidenced by the images past the break) and new missions. Konami is also adding a new single player mode titled Infinity Mission. The game is set for release in Japan on 9/20 with absolutely no information regarding a U.S. release; but knowing Konami and the previous "enhancements" the previous MGS games received (Substance and Subsistence), Portable Ops + may just see a U.S. release.




Here's hoping Konami also rectifies the many problems (re: cheaters) the online multiplayer aspect of the game faces. The game will be released in two different packages; the expansion game will be sold alone for 2,400 yen ($19 USD), and another package, which includes Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops itself, will be sold for 4,300 yen ($35).

    Honestly, I was hoping Konami would skip an expansion pack for MGS: Portal Ops altogether and simply begin work on Portable Ops 2 as a way to fill in the gaps between its predecessor and MGS 3 so we could truly find out why Big Boss snapped. But I suppose there’s still money to be made on the original by milking it for what its worth through these additions. Seems Konami simply couldn’t resist throwing together another rerelease with enhancements for the MGS series, even on the PSP.

    With that said, if Portable Ops Plus did find its way to North America, which is most certainly the case, I’ll still buy the game again if Konami releases it at a budget price. Otherwise, I think I could probably live without this game for a few months until it eventually drops in price in the near future.
