The Metal Gear series uses numeric values for each specific entry - not roman numerals.

This is not MGS5. It's just not. You're seeing what your eyes, and a clever photoshopper want you to see.

From a marketing, promotional and budgetary standpoint, THREE Metal Gear games simultaneously announced is a nightmare for Konami. You've got Revengeance, Ground Zeroes and now MGS5? No... Just no...

This is intended to be viral hype for Ground Zeroes - that's it. The outside of the hospital looks precisely like the Cuba we've seen in that original Ground Zeroes trailer, too.

I think Ground Zeroes is going to have a substantial psychological effect on Big Boss - as indicated heavily by the trailer, and we'll begin to see his descent into who we know him as in the original Metal Gear.

So no, it's not Metal Gear Solid 5. You'll see soon enough - maybe even prior to E3.

For those who hate flipping through 15 pages to find out the list.

2. This man is a dead ringer for Dr Marv
3. Kojima tweeted all the trailer’s mo-cap
4. It says it with flowers
5. Those are MGS issue hospital pants
6. Mini-Mantis anyone?
7. From ‘FOX’ two phantoms were born
8. The burning man’s in MGS armour
9. Hello Volgin
10. He looks a bit like Raiden
11. It’s full of FOX Engine tech
13. If it looks like a Snake and sounds like a Snake…
14. More mini-Mantis
15. This is the guy…

But Konami or Kojima didn't announce MGS5 yet and this may not be confirmed until late 2013 when GZ would be supposedly out. Rising is coming February and it's a different Metal Gear that fits in a different genre not to mention it is being developed by Platinum Games.

CarlosX3601415d ago

It doesn't matter if MGS5 was announced or not. Kojima has not directly evangelize Ground Zeroes or The Phantom Pain as Metal Gear Solid 5. The end, until he does... it's all speculation.

geddesmond1414d ago

Actually it may not be Metal Gear Solid 5 as the voice at the end of the trailer says V has come through which suggests these could be numbered codes of clones from big boss and its Metal gear solid: V which is about the clone V. But to say MGS uses numeric values instead of Roman numerals and thats why its not number 5 has no logic because that is not a trademark of Kojima and he could change the number system at any time if he felt changing 5 to V fitted the story better due to V has come through. This is Kojima, this is the sort of trolling he does. We all got mind bucked.

Well, I think that about says it all...My body is ready!

It's about as "MGS5" as Peace Walker. -_-

TotalHitman1415d ago

Slide 10, I think is Ivan Raidenovitch Raikov (Volgin's lover), not Raiden.

Sarcasm1414d ago

Yup its not Raiden, its the character in MGS3 that happen to look like Raiden.

I don't think its 5 simply because why would he stretch himself so thin and start working on 5 when ground zeros is coming out and its a AAA title, he wouldnt want sales from one or the other to affect each others sales. Kojima does not do stuff like this. maybe 2 years after ground zeros 5 will come out on the next gent consoles.
