  • Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance may be a cross-platform title, but Sony has gotten Konami to support it as if it were a PlayStation 3 exclusive.

    Konami today announced that PlayStation 3 owners will get exclusive content for Revengeance. Specifically, 30 VR missions will be available as a bonus for Sony gamers. The look of the levels has, according to Konami, been inspired by the original Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions.

    Sony has been making a nice habit lately of providing PlayStation 3 owners with exclusive content for big titles. Over the holiday season PlayStation 3 owners who purchased a new copy of Assassin’s Creed III were treated to an exclusive four-mission story arc to spoil Benedict Arnold’s betrayal of West Point.

    The exclusive Revengeance content features no story to speak of, though that might be considered a blessing to anyone who has seen the story dialogue in the game demo released a few weeks ago. Instead, the missions feature “uncut gameplay that pushes Raiden’s Cyborg [sic] body to its limits.” Players will be tested with combat, “tactical maneuvering,” and “stealth-based approaches.” In addition, a “Dwarf Gekko” (the scarab multi-armed sphere thing) can be used as a playable character in some of the missions.

    The latest trailer for Revengeance features three of the unlock-able and upgrade-able boss weapons that Raiden can utilize in the main game.
