E3 2012: Metal Gear Rising Devs Throw Move & Kinect Under the Bus, Hilarity Ensues

David Rodriguez writes, "Earlier today at E3, Q&A sessions were held with developers of Konami’s upcoming title, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. The developers present were Executive Director/Producer Atsushi Inaba of Platinum Games, Creative Producer Yuji Korekado of Kojima Productions, and Associate Producer – who also doubled as translator – Sean Eyestone of Konami.

One brave journalist in the room decided to ask if Move and Kinect support would be added to the game in a future patch. The developers were more than happy to field the question…with one of their own, check out the clip below for the room’s reaction:

just wish they hadn't called it metal gear then maybe i could accept it better. for me metal gear games come with a certain level of expectations and this isn't close.

SKUD2262d ago (Edited 2262d ago )

I agree. However, gamers just can't live without sequels. No matter how bad they are. Case in point resident evil and silent hill. Metal gear franchise came to an end. Its been a great ride. Lets keep it that way. Games like this borrowing the name only cheapens the legacy. Even the handheld versions.

But i loved Peacewalker ... :(

wolokowoh2262d ago

@aaron5829 Well Peace Walker HD is on consoles too now. Maybe he meant Metal Gear Acid. Metal Gear prequels should continue until the gap in between Peace Walker and the original is filled. We know Big Boss was building up his forces during and post Peace Walker but there's this huge gap where things could be explained that have been left somewhat unclear in the MGS games. I'd love another game starring Big Boss because MGS3 and PW are two of my favorite games

Dude, this isn't a sequel, it's a spinoff, and looks like an excellent one at that. Some of us prefer frenetic action to convoluted nonsense and hours worth of cut scenes.

YxUxNO2261d ago


Then maybe the Metal Gear series isn't for you? If you prefer frenetic action then perhaps Devil May Cry, Bayonetta, Ninja Gaiden, and others might be suit your tastes a bit better. Metal Gear has never been about that kind of gameplay. Although this game does look decent, I agree with Soljah 100%. ATM it's just not living up to what I feel a Metal Gear game should be, I hope I'm dead wrong about it though.

bangoskank2259d ago


I've played every Metal Gear game since the NES days so I'd say it's for me. I am able to accept change and not get all pissy when Raiden gets his own spinoff title, unlike some fanboys. If you guys don't like it then go hide in a locker and look at Asian pin-up models.

First people bitched about it being called Metal Gear SOLID.Then KP changed it to Metal Gear Rising and now everyone is bitching about it being called Metal Gear. Just get over it, they changed it already enough, if it was to be called just Rising, Revengeance or something people couldn't identify it belonging to the MGS series. And after all it really looks promising to me, even if I wasn't fan of the VGA trailer, E3 one really restored my hope. This is the ninja game MGS fans have wanted since MGS1 and it plays just like I'd expect it to play.

humbleopinion2261d ago

Actually, so far it plays much better than what I came to expect from a Metal Gear game, at least according to demos - no more humping the floor between cutscenes. Platinum games truly know how to make badass games.

Andreas-Sword2260d ago

Metal Gear Rising looks like the biggest shit since 2009!
The Gameplay stutters and wobbles, the graphics are bad and shitty.
They killed the Metal Gear franchise!
Metal Gear Rising looks like a low quality Ninja Gaiden clone!

Hayabusa 1172261d ago

God, why is the world full of so many f cking divas...?

So you're not going to buy an amazing game because of it's name. Well done. Pat yourself on the back. Your retarded logic is unequaled.

turgore2261d ago

Frankly, this is Kojima's call, not yours.

hilarious clip. Man some of you guys are a buzz kill, comment your thoughts about the clip and not what you wish for what the game should've been or how it's gonna be.

WildArmed2261d ago

haha exactly what I was thinking. It was funny who the devs reacted when the translator translated it to the devs.

It's become pretty clear that Move and Kinect don't really mix with "core" games.

MoveTheGlow2261d ago

The timing on that was amazing!


And millions of gamers nodded their heads.

I still don't see why people are so upset about this game. I always wanted to play a Metal Gear game as Ninja Cyborg Raiden. Especially after seeing him action in MGS4.

Can someone explain to me why this game is getting so much hate?

AznGaara2262d ago

People don't like change. Even if its clearly a spin-off. Someone messing with their beloved franchise makes them mad. Funny. We can complain about how Call of Duty is the same every year but when a game seems just a bit different in franchises like Final Fantasy or Metal Gear, people lose it.

I for one am extremely excited for this game. Just beat Bayonetta and am now working on Vanquish. Both great games and thus I have complete faith in Platinum Games.

MRMagoo1232261d ago

I dont complain about COD being the same every year i wish it was the same as COD4 every year instead of the crap they keep adding thye ruined the game with all the stuff they keep putting in it.

AznGaara2261d ago

Okay but your still proving my point. You want every new COD game to be the same a COD4. Hense you not liking change.

EverydayGuy2262d ago

Prob not being a true MGS game and a spin off with Raiden. I'm personally thrilled to see what the collaboration brought to the game. You have the mind of Kojima for the story and the gameplay of Platinum Games. Sound like a perfect mix for Raiden.

Urbz78702262d ago

Ppl hate on this games cause it has nothing to do with Metal Gear, Snake is not the main character, it's a hack and slash game instead of a tactical sneaking game(hence the tactical espionage on other metal gear games), its a game about Raiden, itz not a ps3 exclusive and Platinum Games is making it. These ppl are complete sell out and will eventually buy the game anyways.

stragomccloud2261d ago

I don't understrand all the hate for Platinum games anyway.... They brought us Okami(under their formaer studio name "clover"), Bayonetta, Madworld, and Vanquish. These guys are pretty cool in my book.

Bleucrunch2261d ago

@ Urbz1988....I can honestly say that I am a Metal Gear Fan that Will NOT buy this game...I do not hate Platinum games because they are just doing their jobs. Their are going to be gamers that like this concept and will buy it and I can't hate on that I mean I was one of the few that LOVE the first Magna Carta on PS2. I do not like spin offs such as these but that is my opinion on the matter. I also feel because Kojima studio is developing the game and Kojima himself is not deeply involved that this game will just be ok at best and not the sheer excellence that was the other projects he worked on.

J86blum2261d ago

Guess you have not played a Metal Gear game since PS1 if those are your reasons to hate it. Your loss.

BitbyDeath2261d ago (Edited 2261d ago )

Raiden has been hated ever since he first appeared in MGS2.

This is like Cleavland from Family Guy getting his own TV show.
Some might like it but seriously WTH?

Deadpool6162261d ago

So it's because of the Raiden hate and action gameplay instead of tactical espionage. I'm guessing people are iffy about the story as well. I'm starting to get the picture.

I guess it's just personal taste. Just be glad it doesn't effect the main series and revisions everything about Metal Gear.
