You know a game is nearing completion when large reputable websites start writing up previews/reviews about it.
Well Eurogamer.net has written a two page preview of MGS4 which gives us mere mortals some deeper insight into the upcoming game and the way that it is going to play out.
One of the cool things that they talk about is the new “Flashback” feature in the cut scenes in MGS4. As you may or may not know the Metal Gear Solid series is heavily dependant on their usually extraordinarily long cut scenes and non sensical stories.
Now when you see the flashback icon on a cutscene you just have to push a button and it will take you on a trip back in time to explain what on earth is going on. Quite a nice feature I would guess this wouldn’t be possible on a normal sized DVD so it could be yet another feather in the Blu-Ray cap?
