The Metal Gear games deserve to be passed on to the future: remembered, loved, and relived by today's fans and future generations of gamers.
"Building the future and keeping the past alive are one and the same thing."
-- Hideo Kojima
It is for this purpose that Metal Gear Solid: The Unofficial Site exists.
Metal Gear Solid: The Unofficial Site was created back in September 2004 with one primary goal: to enhance the experience of the millions of MGS fans around the world by providing a site worthy of the name 'Metal Gear'. This was also the reason behind choosing the name Metal Gear Solid: The Unofficial Site - MGS:TUS looks more like an abbreviation of a Metal Gear Solid game, than a website. We want to create a website that stands out from rest of the media relating to Metal Gear Series. We want a site that can compete with additional media related to the series like, strategy guides, action figures, digital novels, comic books and so forth. We want MGS:TUS to be part of the whole Metal Gear experience in the fans' eyes and make it an important part of their Metal Gear enjoyment.
We have always placed a heavy emphasis on having an attractive web design to match the visually pleasing style and graphics Metal Gear games have. But we have also come to understand that content we can deliver is just as important as having a pretty design, if not even more. That's why we will be focusing more on content than just design in the upcoming Metal Gear Solid site. We plan to continue this path by providing frequent content updates and new downloads that will make visitors want to keep revisiting TUS. Another thing you can expect from TUS is that we will cover all the Metal Gear games equally without any bias, so you can expect equal amount of downloads and content updates for all Metal Gear games.
MGS: The Unofficial Site will also use its connections with Kojima Productions to provide the visitors with exclusive news, downloads and opportunities to join Konami sponsored events. Our goal is also to give the developers accurate fan feedback regarding the different projects Kojima Productions is working on.
