Oscars who?! Metal Gear Solid Mobile Wins It All

Fresh out of the mobile box,
the cellular version of Metal Gear Solid has received the top honors
at this year's International Mobile Gaming Awards (IMGA), taking both
the Grand Prix and Operator's Choice Awards.

The Jury of the International
Mobile Gaming Awards picked a total of 6 winners out of the almost 400
entries from 33 countries. Metal Gear Solid Mobile will be available
for purchase in late February at Verizon Wireless in the Get Fun &
Games shopping aisle of the Get It Now virtual store.

Metal Gear Solid Mobile features never-before-seen dramatic 3D art displays
and camera work that greatly surpass the current standard of mobile
games. In the game, players will face the same extreme tension of solitary
infiltration that fans of the classic tactical espionage action game
have come to expect from the Metal Gear Solid series, previously released
to the PlayStation and PlayStation 2.

The game also takes advantage
of the phone's camera functionality, for example using the camera to
sample colors from the real world for an in-game camouflage system.
It is also possible to shift the viewpoint from first to third person
in the game to control a variety of weapons. Amen!
