There is absolutely nothing wrong with the MGS4 trailer or the "plug" for the Cell..
Anyone who's ever played an MGS game knows that they like to break the 4th wall and add in funny references to things in the real world. The Cell reference was on par with any MGS trailer or game demo. I wouldn't be surprised to find stuff like that in the actual game once it comes out.
The line at the end "It will be worth the wait" is what I think Moore was referring to as a sign of weakness. I think the only thing Sony fears from MS right now is the fact that they're launching first, which wouldn't be so bad if they were lining themselves up for a strong launch as well (typically the first console to launch in a particular generation has a weak launch).
The cell reference was on par for MGS and the "worth the wait" comment simply shows that Sony is somewhat worried about launching 2nd.
Moore was simply pointing that out, though the fact that he felt he NEEDED to point it out might also be a sign of weakness. Worried that people might take the comment to heart and turning it from "yeah it WILL be worth the wait" to "he's right that WAS a sign of weakness". Both companies have their necks out and are equally worried about the other.
As for the comment deftones compared earlier claiming they are both childish. One contained 2 facts followed by a rational confusion as to the other company's "vision". The other company compared themselves to a wise instructor and the competitor as a student who things they know better.
In that case MS said "I don't understand what they're trying to accomplish" to which I can fully agree because I thought the very same thing when I first read the PS3 specs. "Who has 2 HDTVs?" and "Aside from SOME sports games who needs 7 controllers?" How was either of those useful, I would rather a lower price point then those two frivolous features. For all intents and purposes KK called MS a "n00b" with his comment. hardly comparable comments.
My only problem with MGS4 was that they decided to make Snake an old man with a porno mustache. Will not getting caught while hacking up a lung be part of the game? ...and If you do get caught can you use your colostomy bag as a weapon?
Yes and snake being 50 years old i hate that!! Snake never aged as for as i could see between 2 and 3 so why make him age in 4? It's depressing lol how can a man that sick and old do what he did in that trailer? I guess since this is the last Metal gear for those who don't know can read here http://news.gaminghorizon.com/media2/1127013540.2331.html
or use google to search. I guess he is just going to phuck it all up!!
