GamePro scotches 90-minute MGS4 cut-scene talk

GamePro has called CVG out on a story this morning that said some of the cut-scenes in Metal Gear Solid 4 are 90 minutes long.

“I’ve beat the game twice, and am the author of the forthcoming [GamePro] review,” said mag staffer Sid Shuman.

“Ninety-minute-long cinemas in MGS4 sounds like an exaggeration. Like the other MGS games, MGS4 definitely has a cinematic quality. And yes, some of the cut-scenes in the game are elaborate and occasionally lengthy. But not a one, to my recollection, even approaches 90 minutes.

“I think it’s safe to say that the ’90 minutes cinemas’ claim is a pretty big exaggeration.”

Never saw this coming. No sir.
