Will Solid Snake Be Born During Big Boss's Coma, Appear Voiced By David Hayter In MGS5?

GR writes: "After hearing all this news of David Hayter not voicing Big Boss in Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain I couldn't help but raise an eyebrow. This is the guy who has been an iconic voice actor for every Metal Gear installment since 1998. He is charming, fits the role well, and enjoys his job. For him to publicly Tweet that he wasn't even asked to voice Big Boss in MGS5 is extremely suspicious. Then it dawned on me: this has to be another troll by Hideo Kojima." (Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PS3, Xbox 360)

Woo, I hope so.

I cannot wait to see how MGSV turns out. It looks f***ing awesome!

It's unlikely that this is true, Kojima still has the old voice actor playing in the Japanese version of the game. This looks like either a money issue for Konami, as Hayter may have raised his rate, or Kojima is doing the same retarded nonsense he did back when he thought it would be a great idea to have the main character be a half male half female looking double gender person with long blond hair, and a whiny personality, all based on some forum message board from some stupid Japanese girl who didn't like that Snake was such a masculine manly character. Kojima took that and ruined Metal Gear Solid 2 all from that, so no, I don't trust Kojima's intuition.

I would donate my second kidney for this to be true.

Snake was already born 2 years BEFORE MGS:Peace Walker.

Your point helps what this article was TRYING to do. If Solid was born while Naked was in the coma, Hayter would be voicing a prepubescence 10 year old.

Wouldn't he be a child though?
Tito08  +   975d ago
Definitely, Snake was born in '72, by the events of Portable Ops, Big Boss accepted to do the "Les Enfant Terribles" project, so by the events of Phantom Pain, both Solid & Liquid are 11 by then, Solidus Snake is the more tricky story since he's Big Boss's perfect clone, the main one.

Snake was born by default with David Hayter Voice. Puberty by the age of 1.
Tito08  +   975d ago
Yep, totally agree with you Nitro.
Root  +   975d ago
Does Snake make any reference that he's met Big Boss before the first Metal Gear/Metal Gear 2 when he apparently kills him.

I don't think I've heard anything in the games that says he's saw him when he was younger.
Tito08  +   975d ago
Uhmmm, not that I remember, because he was a child soldier, but likely met him as simply Fox-Hound's general, but definitely at some point Big Boss will know about him, just like Raiden knew nothing about his past until Solidus told him everything, that includes killing Raiden biological parents.

Great theory! I would love this link in the stories.

Didn't Solidus and to a lesser extent Liquid and Solid Snake have accelerated aging?
Heavenly King  +   975d ago
Snake was already born 2 years BEFORE MGS:Peace Walker (Before Grounds Zeroes and TPP). After the coma in "the phantom Pain" Snake would like 11 years old.

This gaming "journalists" need to do their homework before posting nonsense.
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   975d ago
Exactly. Solid would be a little child and him having an adult voice would be... LOL
Eamon  +   974d ago
Indeed, a tard of an article.
TheOneEyedHound  +   975d ago
This is how I expect the MGS series to end, if this indeed is the last MGS:

After the last cutscene, we now see a very old Solid Snake(Voiced by Hayter) talking to Meryl's kids and Raiden's, or writing a book, or maybe to himself in a mental institution.

Probably saying, "and that's my and my fathers story, we saved the world which nobody knew it needed saving....And now....I'm an average nobody, I get the live the rest of my life like a Schnook.

New Twist!! The reason Big boss voice changed was because a character from MGSV that we don't know explains Big Boss story for MGS5.

I'm glad I read this, it brought back a dim light of hope for me.
MattyG  +   975d ago
I have a feeling this is either true, r partly true. Maybe he is doing it not because they meet in MGS5, but because they will meet in a future game. Also, I think them having the exact same voice confuses a lot of people who aren't "hardcore" fans, so they may have changed it to prevent confusion. Either way, I'm not gonna fuss about it. I don't think Kojima would keep this new guy if he wasn't good, so I'm not too worried.
porkChop  +   975d ago
Omfg. DO. YOUR. HOMEWORK. As a "journalist" that's part of your job! Solid Snake was born in 1972, 2 years before Peace Walker. I get so annoyed with these people. It's like no one ever bothers to check their facts anymore when writing these articles. Instead, they just spew out a bunch of terribly misinformed bullshit.

How does the rapid aging thing work for Big Boss's clones? Its been awhile since I played the games, but the clones (except for Solidus who looked old in MGS2, was he cloned as a full formed adult?) All looked around the age you'd think they'd be in if they were born in early 70's, with Snake only looking peculiarly old in mgs4.

So do the clones grow normally for 30yrs and then rapidly age? Or have they been aging fast since birth? If its the latter I can see a Hayter cameo as Solid, but not the former.

I just gave birth to a solid snake this morning so yeah, why not ?
SeraphimBlade  +   975d ago
I dunno. Hayter's a great voice actor but it might sound pretty terribles if he voiced les enfant.
2pacalypsenow  +   974d ago
Im hoping this is the case
Batzi  +   974d ago
I didn't even bother reading the article. The moment I read this bullshit "will Solid Snake be born during Big Boss' coma" I lost hope in humanity.

Snake in his infancy voiced by Hayter, that has to be biggest joke of the year.
