imageKonami’s Tokyo Game Show demo found its way onto the Internet. You can grab the Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker TGS demo from IGN or PSP Demo Center. (Thanks for the tip Brie!!)


Update your PSP to firmware 6.00, if necessary. Then, unzip the file and copy “NPJH90063” to your PSP –> GAME folder and enjoy!


Since the demo was designed for Tokyo Game Show it’s in Japanese, but here are the controls and a run down of the missions to get you started.

    very cool but I have lost half my motivation to go to TGS tomorrow :(

    I guess I can get those buttons and what not.

    anyway, thanks for posting the information :)

    • Hexen

      nahh.. there’s MGS freebies once you tried the demo on their Konami booth. also, there’s a lots of good games to see on TGS this year besides this one.

  • QBasic

    Firmware 6.0 isn’t necessary. I’m running 5.50, and it works dandy.

    That said…I love, love, LOOOOOVE this game’s control scheme. Seriously ingenious…

    • Trotmeister

      Should I assume then that it is better than miserable failure of a game that was Portable Ops?

    • cowcow

      Thanks for the heads up on that.

      *edit: wait… I just tried it and it’s telling me I I have 5.50 and need at least 5.51 or higher

      aw poop

      • There’s a way around that, I assume you have custom firmware? Well if so you can change this file on your PSP called version.txt look up how to get to it if you don’t know how and then replace the content of the file with:

        build:3230,0,3,1,0:[email protected]
        system:[email protected]_555,0x05050510:
        [email protected]_555,[email protected]_555,2

        Then you’ll beable to play it on 5.50

    I don’t want to spoil the game for myself by playing it pre-launch, but can anyone just tell me if it’s good? I can’t say I liked Portable Ops, so I suppose give it a comparison in terms of that and the “main” MGS series?

  • How do I crawl? Or don’t tell me, I CAN’T?! That would be no good!
