Post "Super Widescreen" on HD remakes of MGS2 and MGS3
As you probably know, the aspect ratio of the original titles during cinemas, which was 16:9, is not being respected in the HD remakes.. even though the native aspect ratio is now real 16:9 and not achieved through letterboxing.

And even though the Snake soup documented this in several occasions, now it is being reported as a feature.

It has not been reported how this will affect both Z.O.E. titles. It must be noted that Anubis has some animation, which will hopefully be respected, but who knows about the real time cinemas.

It is a shame since the aesthetic value is completely disregarded, and some elements which were not meant to be shown are now. It could have been (or maybe still could be) a perfect re-release, but it seems they are focusing on having this maybe due to some technical problem.

It didn't occur to me how bad this was until I saw that Ocelot shot. -_-

On the latest KP Report http://www.kjp.konami.jp/gs/hideoblog_e/
they talk about the "super widescreen" issue.
The way Sean Eyestone, Christopher Johns and Christine Kogure talk about how this is an enhancement I think will insult everyone's intelligence. They also said it's not too late for them to change things so they want to hear everyone's comments on the issue.

thanks for sharing, I guess we should all comment if we care =)

The widescreen issue is discussed at 11:50, listen to that and give your opinion.

Should definitely write in the comment box on that page AND send an email if you can. It MAY be worth it.

A couple of fans have suggested that if it's "still tweak-able" why don't they give the user the option to chose which they prefer? Seems the decent thing to do, and by today's blu-ray standards (features-wise) wouldn't/shouldn't be a big ask.

Wow. I guess making anonymous phone threats can work.

Now we need to hack Kojima's cell phone for some compromising pics to really make him do what we want.
