Wow, that is some really impressive evidence... This might just be true...

If you pause between 3:00 and 3:02, there is a shadowy figure hovering over "snake" as the soldier beams the torch in his face.

Is it Psycho Mantis?
Dante112  +   1086d ago
Looks more like Ground Zero to me (Probably just one of Kojima teasers). Looks exactly like what what shown in the demonstration awhile back as well (Graphically, as well as the guy with the "covered eye").

looking back at it, it may be The Sorrow further haunting Big Boss about *spoilers* all the people who died in Groznyj Grad and personally killing The Boss.

Possible a Darkness 2 style look into his mental state or possible interactive/playable nightmares that Big Boss has over the course of Ground Zeroes?

Either way, cannot fudging wait, Kojima is the master of mystery and suspense.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   1086d ago
Yeah, I think for whatever reason its a placeholder name. Kojima didn't want to expose the actually game to the public just yet despite confirming it several months back.

Its probably just to get the masses talking before the ACTUAL reveal of MGS5.

To us the ones that know, its a brand new trailer.

its MGS when i saw the trailer there were signs

kojima is just messing with us lol

i say its for next gen systems
Knight_Crawler  +   1086d ago
If it is MGS5 then I hope its multiplat and next gen.

But I am really hoping its not MGS related and its a new IP by a new studio that Kojima personally put together.

I am sick of playing the same game over and over and want to see Kojima do something new and show us what he can do.

Even a reboot of MGS would be good news as the story for MGS is pretty much played out nnd even Kojima him self said that even he does not understand the story fully.

Hate to burst you're bubble, but, Kojima DOES do something new with every MGS he makes....
vallencer  +   1086d ago
If you really want something new from him, even though its technically old, play Zone of the Enders. They're great games.

"I am sick of playing the same game over and over and want to see Kojima do something new and show us what he can do."

Really? Name two metal gear solid games that were exactly the same. Each is different in its own way.
belac09  +   1086d ago
so true, they are all so different that the sheer comment by pats fan is just ludicrous, the difference in the 4 main games alone is mind boggling.
Qrphe  +   1085d ago
Well Im sure youll enjoy Rising. I bet youd enjoyed Metal Gear Acid as well.
AdmiralSnake  +   1086d ago
Should be a good game, anyway idc much for the speculations, gonna just ain't till the troll Kojima decides to confirm it, in his own twisted unordinary way.
isa_scout  +   1086d ago
I called MGS5 when I seen his hair and the eye patch and him crawling like a snake*wink*wink* Yeah, it's definitely MGS related.
Jio  +   1086d ago
It's definitely Metal Gear Solid 5.

I love the series, and can't wait for the release of 5, and all of the evidence points to a new Metal Gear Solid game!
Marz  +   1086d ago
when they show his arm, there are white flower petals falling. kind of like the white flower petals that fell when Boss was killed
abzdine  +   1086d ago
this is some serious teasing !!
-Gespenst-  +   1086d ago
I don't know, the outdoor environment shown really reminded me of Ground Zeroes. This could just be a teaser for it.

The phantom pain corresponds pretty neatly to: "From fox two phantoms were born", a tagline for Ground Zeroes.

Also it's possible the operation that Big Boss underwent in the trailer was part of the cloning procedure.
Felonycarclub8  +   1086d ago
This is what makes me think that ps4 might not come out till 2014 so many games coming out and I love it but I do see the next Xbox come out next year
jjb1981  +   1086d ago
I thought it was mgs5 when I was watching it. Then I seen phantom pain in the metal gear rising font and said "hmmmmmmmmmmmmm"....
panbit86  +   1086d ago
Ιt is definitely MGS related but imo Kojima wouldn't release MGS5 on this generation of consoles... also he never uses latin numbers in the titles. Something tells me it's PSVita related...
MYSTERIO360  +   1086d ago
If this is indeed a MGS game then this would be the greatest trolled teaser ever!
ApexHell  +   1086d ago
i thought it was metal gear the second the trailer started lol the whole time i was like this is snake i know it! and lots of textures resemble ground zeroes textures so foxengine.
belac09  +   1086d ago
i thought the same thing.
BattleTorn  +   1086d ago
I'm not even that much of a MGS fan, and I picked up on it.
breakpad  +   1086d ago
IT is MGS game for sure ...another evidence is the hexagonal hospital bricks like those in VR missions or training...also KOjima Pro twitted screens from various surgical and medical items it has been rumored that it was a mini research for their upcoming game....
jeffsventora  +   1086d ago
It makes sense, up until the point of the flaming whale & unicorn. Boss doesn't have a prosthetic arm. The correct eye is bandaged though. Personally, I think it's about cloning process, maybe this isn't Boss, maybe this is a facility full of faulty clones.
breakpad  +   1086d ago
Boss dosnt but Liquid... could have one ;D
TheOneWhoIsTornApart  +   1085d ago
In Metal Gear 2 Big Boss is said to have lost his limbs and one of his ears and aparently his eye somehow even though I know full well his eye was lost in MGS 3. I t is interesting though
jeffsventora  +   1086d ago
Remember from Ground Zeroes the guy with the messed up face? Maybe that is the person helping captain hook (Snake) in this video and they somehow go against each other?
no_more_heroes  +   1086d ago
"The Phantom Pain" could be the subtitle.
omi25p  +   1086d ago
So if this is MGS 5 then that means there are three brand new MGS games in development at the exact same time.

WeskerChildReborned  +   1085d ago
You mean 2? Cause it would be MGS GZ and MGS 5.
omi25p  +   1085d ago
Metal Gear Rising, Metal Gear Solid 5 and Metal Gear Solid Ground Zero.

“@aganej2: @DavidBHayter so what was your take on The Phantom Pain trailer?” It made my arm hurt.
imtheman2013  +   1085d ago
Right at the beginning, when the supposed Snake is looking at his prosthetic arm, the white leaves from the fight with The Boss in MGS3 are falling in front of him. To me, that was the immediate giveaway.
DarkBlood  +   1085d ago
well in the end whatever it is I WANT IT lol
Orionsangel  +   1085d ago
If it's not MGS. Lawsuit!
