An interesting bit from another interview with Kojima that was conducted when he was in Dubai, from DvLZGame (keep in mind this is a translation).
Father, you're are pretty good
I predict a 360/PS3 + 720/PS4 same date release, same for most games in 2014
It would make sense. Judging from everything I've seen I'm hard pressed to think it's going to be on current gen... but MGS has always looked great, naked cartwheels aside.
All I want is a release date, IDC if it's this gen or next.
God dammit Kojima.
If this is Next-Gen bound, PS4 will be a day one for me.
Sounds next-gen to me.
Current-gen, I assume.
Hoping its current gen because I don't plan on buying a PS4 on launch date or any where near there. Gotta build a gaming PC.
You don't show current gen games running on pcs...............
I had no doubt this was next gen, see also Watchdogs. They can't say they're next-gen, so have to hold up the pretense of them being for current gen systems.
Like other have said. MGS, The Phantom Pain and Watchdogs are all next gen games.
Skate-AK, you made me LOL hard. YOu're exactly right. Too many idiots on N4G. Watchdogs for sure is next gen at least.
this gen or next gen just bring me the goods damn you lol
I am all-in that the PS4 will be announce this year. There is just too many things that have gave me hints, all the Ps3's exclusives being targeted Q1 & 2, Watchdogs & Ground zeros being announce and not confirming it being for this gen. To me when kojima says " It's a secret(PS4) answers might come sooner than you think" (If Sony or M$ announce their new console than it's sooner, if they don't then they might not.)
Either way, I support Kojima 110% with his decisions.
gotta be this gen. If next-gen content then im partly disappointed but doubt it is.
Its going to be a PS4 exclusive release title.
Playing this current gen or next gen whatever it lands in.
I know people will disagree with me, but I rather see this game for next gen. I mean, at the end of the day, that game looks pretty damn good for this gen, it's impossible, then again, it's Kohima and his team, they are the masters at what they do
It'll be nextgen, why would Kojima make a brand new engine for this gen? Or why would he make a brand new engine that is compatible with this and the next? Neither option would make sense.
Wouldn't creating a game with astonishing graphics for such old hardware stir more people up than creating a game with awesome graphics with new hardware? By doing it on current-gen with these gfx they can demonstrate and showcase what an awesome studio with an even better engine they are. I've seen and played many games and saw many good engines but nothing ever came close to this. And this is multiplatforming. And when I say nothing can compare I, of course, mean low-end tech / current-gen. Although I'm sure next-gen games on FOX will blow eople away aswell. Doesn't anybody agree?..
