Behind the scenesEdit

Scoring-system

The scoring system for E3 Battle.

On the roster, the names and backgrounds of Ray Poward and Pyramid Head were switched around, with Ray Poward having Pyramid Head's bio and portrait, and Pyramid Head vice versa. They were correctly identified in the actual battle. In addition, although the roster mentioned that Pyramid Head and Moai (Misc) won, the actual battle implied that Ray Poward and Devil Zukin actually won in percentage points. These were later corrected. A similar error was made with the results of The Boss vs. Metal Gear RAY, Vamp vs. James Sunderland, Anubis vs. Bill Rizer and Lance Bean, and Rat Patrol 01 vs. Solidus Snake for Round 2.

During the semifinals, the battle roster implied that The Boss was to fight against Metal Gear REX, and that Naked Snake was to fight against Raiden. Likewise, the battle itself implied that The Boss was to fight against Naked Snake, whereas Raiden was to fight against Metal Gear REX. the former option was proven to be true with the finalists.

Kazuhira Miller's profile incorrectly labelled his first appearance as being Metal Gear Solid, when he actually first appeared in Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake.

BattlegroundsEdit

Location-5

Konami's E3 Booth was the battleground for the finals.

Each battle was given a setting based on one of Konami's titles. These settings were dubbed battlegrounds and served as a background image to the voting screens. The battlegrounds for the first four rounds were: PES Futbol Field (Northwest division), Rising Ruin (Northeast division), Dracula's Castle (Southwest division), and Silent Hill (Southeast division). The battleground used in the finals was not taken from a game. Instead, Konami's E3 Booth was used as the backdrop.
