VGAs announced The Phantom Pain is actually Metal Gear?

At the Spike Video Game Awards 2012, a debut trailer was shown for a mysterious new game called ‘The Phantom Pain’. However, there seemed to be a series of strange coincidences and peculiarities, and all over the internet people were debating wether this was actually a new game, or a marketing stunt for something Hideo Kojima/Metal Gear related. This seems to be something Kojima could do, and below is a quick summary of the most conspicuous hints that point in the direction of this being Metal Gear related. (Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PS3, Xbox 360)

8013 things wrong with this post.
The VGA's and No, there was no such "announcement".

What do you mean? The announcement I'm talking about is that of the Phantom Pain. That did happen right?

And I realize of course that it's all speculation and rumors that can very well turn out to be false. But that doesn't mean we cannot point them out.

Agreed.

I'm thinking XGamer is pointing out that it is a Reveal and not an announcement. An announcement is typically associated with written press, usually from the publisher. Reveals is when they show something without any confirmation.

But honestly, at this point with all the evidence. It's pretty conclusive this is something to do with Metal Gear. The real question is if it truly will be MGS5 or MGSVita or MGSWiiU.

Heck, maybe The Phantom Pain is the real title, but set in the Metal Gear universe.

Kojima is one of the best trolls in the history of gaming, and we all fall for it.

@ Sarcasm: Okay, fair enough. Maybe I used the wrong term.

I think this and GZ are one and the same game. It seems unlikely KojiPro would tease yet another new MGS title, only three months after GZ.

Depends... It seems like GZ plays out in because in one pic his young and in the other one an old man... Explain?

If you're talking about GZ, he's not old, the lighting made his hair look grey but Kojima said MGS GZ is a prologue for MGS5 and well this trailer spells MGS5 so my guess is GZ will be a current gen game and MGS5 will be a gateway to next gen hopefully.

But most likely, i think Phantoms Pain is related in MGS and i think it would be MGS5.

This is MGS5, has to be. Right at the end someone says V has come to or 5 has come also as in along with ground zeros. If so Kojima is a freaking BEAST.

There is way to many hints that point toward MGS5/Ground Zeros. It must be a MGS game.
