Metal Gear Solid Forum  /  Question for the speedrunners !!

How is it possible that some runs go faster ?
(snake runs faster)

I use a chaff to run faster bud no use.

Is it because they do it on hard / extreme ?
Or use they other features to run faster in game ?
Or is it because its PS3 instead of 1 ?

Hope to see some reply's.

Cheers !!

I remember Adnan Kauser said that on PAL version Snake runs slower but it was for VR Missions

I don't know, it uses the same engine, maybe it applies for the main game as well.

Old thread, but PAL is slower because the FPS is 25, not 30.

bump ! so no matter if i run on the PS2 or the PS3 with pal ?

It makes no difference you’ll be slower due to the frame rate. You can buy the Japanese or US version on PS3 and have more of an edge. Just buy from the PSN store for a couple of dollars

ah oke nice one @Raichu so i can just buy it from the store. then i need a JAP / US playstation for it right ? i am from the EU 😛

You do not need a Japanese/US Playstation, you need a Japanese/US PSN account.

The process isn’t too bad, I would suggest above all else go with Integral from the Japanese store. It’s a bit of a bother to setup the account initially, I’d definitely use your PC or Phone and use Google Chrome so you can translate the site it will be in Japanese. From there you’ll need either a Japanese PayPal account and link your credit or debit card or buy some PSN card and in YEN. The former is easier and better imo, a lot of the site that sell PSN cards upcharge them, using PayPal means you save the few dollars they’ll add on + it’s safer.
