    On PS2, I can't really imagine it selling well.
    On Xbox, I guess I could, but I think a lot of Xbox owners have already played it on PS2.

    It will probably only sell to people that haven't played it on PS2. I have it for the PS2, and there's not enough content for me to justify a second purchase, especially when "Splinter Cell" is a week away, and far more impressive (IMHO).

    I'll get the PS2 version of it. There seems to be a lot of added stuff, so I'm hoping it will be more for the good.

    I'll be getting Splinter Cell instead. I think MGS2: Substance will sell pretty good though.

    I rented MGS2:S, and, even with VR extras and such, it's still the same old thing. In fact, it doesn't feel new at all, and after a short time playing it, I'm ready to return it. Splinter Cell, on the other hand, has me drooling. Can't wait for it.

    I have to agree. I picked up MGS2: Substance because I don't own a PS2 and have yet to play the game. I'm not that interested in the VR missions, as the main story/game is what interests me the most. I can't imagine this game selling well, although I don't see it selling entirely poorly either.

    I have MGS2 for PS2 and won't be rebuying it for the extras. Much like the rest I'll be buying Splinter Cell instead.

    I would have traded up to it from the PS2 version when it dropped in price, but the slowdown and lack of progressive scan is inexcusable.

    I'll be buying Splinter Cell, which if the demo is any indication, looks to have gameplay that craps all over MGS2.

    I grew tired of the stupid ass banter between Raiden/Rose. UGH!!! [​IMG] Impressive game but, too much "Japanesey" story for me.

    I can't picture it selling all that well. There hasn't been much of any promotion for it to this point. I think the PS2 version could sell decently, but I can't see many people paying $49.99 for the VR missions. That's just my opinion though.

    Considering the first one sold extremely well, they might not need to charge $50 for the PS2 version. They could put it on the shelves for $30 and still make a profit because of how well the first one sold.

    The skating mode was not included in the game. (I think they shot themselves in the foot there...not that I care about the skating personally)

    I'll probably end up with both Substance and Splinter Cell at some point (since I never played MGS2 on PS2).

    The commercial for substance is great though (even uses the cardboard box!)

    DeanWalsh-

    Last I heard, the skating game was for PS2, so they might be including that extra in the PS2 version.

    And they are making a new Castlevania on PS2. Most likely 2D.
