MGS5 should have been made for next gen hardware
Smurf1  +   646d ago
I agree. What they've shown so far does seem impressive though.
Crazyglues  +   645d ago
@ Smurf1

Impressive is an understatment

What they have shown so far looks absolutely amazing... I mean Amazing..

I still can't believe they did that with current gen hardware... That tech demo just blew me away - http://bit.ly/182iJ1M

I mean wow.. they have indeed been hard at work to get the game to look that good..MGS5 OMG! I can't wait.. -Day-One- Buy.. Whenever it comes out..

Yes indeed. But is anyone really surprised with this delay announcement?
LAWSON72  +   645d ago
It looks impressive because the demo was ran on a pc
Gaming101  +   645d ago
In case anyone hasn't figured it out, the tech demo was on a PC, not a console. If you really think consoles can push those visuals, you must be smoking Snoop Dogg levels of pot.

Kojima also said it was running with a set-up comparable to the PS3.
Don't filter the news, haters.
Kevin ButIer  +   645d ago
lol kojima will never be satisfied... something I do appreciate a lot
LOL_WUT  +   646d ago
At this point that wouldn't be such a bad idea. ;)

I stopped doubting kojima the day he made a masterpeice out of a psp game ....
hardware doesnt matter to him

Im pretty sure they will port it to PS4 n whatever Microsoft announces

Yep. make it right and make it next gen.

I just wish Kojima didn't close down the MGO/Metal gear Online servers so soon if he knew that MGS 5 was going to take so long. I loved MGO, and am so bored lately, that I barely enjoy any of the other online games I have.
TheFamous1  +   645d ago
I hope they release it for PS4 as disc or digital, I don't have a Playstation 3, but I plan on buying a Playstation 4.
DeadManMcCarthy  +   645d ago
lol you realise if it was next gen then it wouldnt even be ready until 2018. if theyve taken so long to develop it for this gen then you can triple that amount of time for a next gen release because its more work to develop.

it will be for next gen systems, or maybe both current and next gen. MY thing is next MGS won't be out till fall 2014 so by than it makes sense to launch on next gen systems
jcnba28  +   644d ago
I hope they don't turn it into another movie like they did with MGS4.
ape007  +   646d ago
hopefully they announce it for PS4 and NEXTBOX, i gotta feeling they'll do cause the fox engine is very powerful, hope gta 5 make the transition too

Take your time Kojima san. We want it as good as MGS4.
Irishguy95  +   645d ago
As good as 3 you mean...or at least as good as Mgs1

Yeah @ Below, MGS3 was truly something special. MGS4 did not live up to it.

MGS3 was like a top notch anime
MGS4 was a campy childish anime

Mgs 3 was an interactive cinematic masterpiece, the first time I realized games are art.

yaz288  +   645d ago
Mgs3 is mainly my favorite duo to the gameplay, some part of me still think mgs2 was the best on getting everything right.. also some part still thinks of mgs4 as the best.

They are all good games.

Braid  +   645d ago
I respectfully disagree. The whole prologue chapter with the famous monologue "war has changed" might be the best opening to any video game that has ever released. I wouldn't call that a childish anime.
Maldread  +   644d ago
I agree that MSG4 was disappointing. But ony because MGS1 and MGS3 was just on a whole other level.

The boss battles in MGS1 with Psycho Mantis, Liquid, perfect story and the two different endings makes it my favorite though ;)
Transporter47  +   645d ago
MGS4 was so beautiful, each MGS has their own beauty :)
yaz288  +   645d ago
I had this feeling when playing mgs4 .. its just me but I liked the fact that all the mgs games were in one setting (mgs1,mgs2,mgs3).. instead of flying all over the world. still disappointed that the game didn't turn out like the e3 2006 trailer .. but still its one of my favorite games this gen.

I hope the gun first person view is still being used in mgs5. although the tps is nice but I still prefer shooting in first person in mgs.
Batzi  +   645d ago
I think Ground Zeroes is coming late summer.
ANIALATOR136  +   645d ago
yes wasnt Ground Zeroes supposed to be a prologue or part 1 of MGSV and Ground Zeroes part 2 or the full proper game. I can see Ground zeroes releasing in Q4 this year on PS3 if thats kojimas plan and then Phantom pain on PS4 along with a ported Ground Zeroes added on
Pillsbury1  +   645d ago
Kojima can take his time to craft his next masterpiece.
-GametimeUK-  +   645d ago
Take as long as you want as long as it is better than the disappointment that is MGS4.
S-T-F-U  +   645d ago
I've played all the MGS games and loved MGS4. Still one of the best games this gen IMO...
-GametimeUK-  +   645d ago
I enjoyed the first 2 acts whilst using stealth. The rest of the game felt CoDish. Nothing but boss fights, robots and explosions. It simply doesn't compare to MGS3, but that is just my opinion.
Nate-Dog  +   645d ago
Alone, MGS4 was a good game, heck it was probably a great game. But as an MGS game, it wasn't so good.
Imalwaysright  +   645d ago
I agree that MGS4 is one of the best games of this gen but compared to MGS3, its a disappointing game.

Mid 2014, calling it.
Please Kojima, take all the time you need to create a masterpiece
Chapter11  +   645d ago
Part of that time needs to be spent kissing David Hayter's ass and hoping he agrees to come back
S-T-F-U  +   645d ago
It won't feel like MGS without him :(
Nate-Dog  +   645d ago
Yeah because that whole tiff between them wasn't a joke or anything (just wait, you'll see). Also I'm sure the director of a video-game that pays voice-actors will go running to someone he pissed off and say "oh please sir, won't you take my bags of money sir?" as if his life depended on it. Then again some people seem to think Hayter is owed some sort of lifetime position with MGS or something even if he was to be dropped. He's a voice actor, it's his job. What happens with a job like this? You do your task, you get paid, you go home and look for another one.
Maldread  +   644d ago
Yeah i was going to say the same thing. MGS isn`t MGS without Hayter :(
llMurcielagoll  +   645d ago
Take your time, Kojima
jc48573  +   645d ago
KP is probably one of the few developers that does this. They don't leave a console just because next gen is coming.
Haules  +   645d ago
MGS 1 was probably the best Game ever made! Was just a blast when it was released, never seen before... the fight against Mantis on the PS1 was for many their gaming moment in their lives! Nothing comes close to that experience... getting mad, destryoing the gamepad..
MGS 2 was okay-ish, i guess. Great intro (5%) mediocre 95% Gaiden Spy-game...
MGS 3 Superb! Fight against the Boss was just perfect (flowers...), Sexy Eva!
MGS 4 okay-ish, ddint play it (skipped this current gen), but didnt like it much (youtube walkthrough), about the same sensation like with MGS 2

in other words : MGS 5 has to be his next masterpiece! Btw... might be wrong, but didnt he lead the project/devs on the first game and third ? Im not sure, but i thought someone else took over his part/job on MGS 2 and 4 (i remember him whining a lot about doing other stuff/genre-games and he would like to be more a supervisor and not the lead-Developer).
Pillsbury1  +   645d ago
Mgs: legacy edition is gonna be awesome.

You mean the re-release of the re-release?
trenso1  +   645d ago
you skipped this current gen entirely? so what have you been playing for the last 7 years or so
Maldread  +   644d ago
Agree with your ranking of the games. 1,3,4 and 2 in that order for me.

You should still play MGS4 though. It`s a disappointhing MGS-game for me, but only because 1 and 3 is 10/10 games ;)
CEOSteveBallmer  +   645d ago
The Only issue I have here is that, will kojima sell us 2 parts of a game instead of one?? I mean he did tell us ground zeroes and phantom pain are MGSV and yet he somehow cannot comment when geoff keighly questioned him if the prologue will also be included with phantom pain. Kojima said he cannot answer that at the moment. So thats a Hint that Konami wants to sell us half a game!! both for full priced $60??. But there is a solution that I can think of, They can sell us these 2 parts as long as its a Full blown game each, with standard MGS gameplay hours and not a short one. Then I would be gladly buying both, I will just think that ground zeroes is MGSV part 1 and phantom pain MGSV part 2. like FFXIII and FFXIII-2 or FFX and FFX-2.
DEEBO  +   645d ago
no fear,he is a great developer.i love peace walker.this guy has a pretty cool life.i follow him on twitter.i think he is the father of stealth video games.
violents  +   645d ago
He can take all the time in the world as far as I'm concerned. Anything with Kojima as the lead designer comes out a freakin masterpiece! Quality takes time, I will be waiting.
d4sholil1  +   645d ago
Yes, take all the time you need Kojima Pro. This game will be epic. Can't wait lol!
Xenomorph  +   645d ago
Needs more time is code for "released simultaneously for Ps3/Ps4"

@ trenso1

Yeppers, haven´t played much these 7 years (few PC games), compared to my previous addiction run-throughs :

ca. 50 PS1 Games (PAL and NTSC US and 1x chipped console, 75€ per game import sold everything for about 500€ for a dreamcast)
ca. 65 PS2 Games (2x Pal, 2 NTSC JP and 1x NTSC US Console (damn import and GT3! Release)
ca. 20 Dreamcast Games

I could´ve done sumtin else with that money.... in other words : not buying the same cr-p game again, just with better textures.. easily "lost" 15000 € past these 15 years, PS2 transition was especially hard on me...
GoldenRimz  +   645d ago
I wish Assassin's Creed wasn't afraid to say things like this so they could put more detail into their craft and not release disappointing installments like AC3.
air1  +   645d ago
But damn kojima..... The ps4 is about to come out! I hope the hold up is to make the ps4 version better, if their is a ps4 version
Who  +   645d ago
Give us Ground Zeroes with MGO this year pls! I can wait for PP.
ErzaScarlet  +   645d ago
The demo still looks awesome for current Gen hardwares. I was blown away to be honest.
tommygunzII  +   645d ago
Take all the time you need Kojima. If all games were created like MGS4 gaming would be at another level.
grimmweisse  +   645d ago
Take all the time you need Kojima-san. Keep up the fine Metal Gear pedigree. I shall be waiting with anticipation!
akaihana86plus  +   645d ago
Kojima is such a sexy guy, i can't wait to get this game! o3o

Haules  +   645d ago
Tbh. the demo didn´t impress me much. More polished as before, but still has the same "look and feel" of todays games... too "plastic".. just another step in the wrong direction. Developer should start making gaming looking diffrent, like with the PS4 Launch Title The Witness.

Aren´t we sick already ? Every game is just a more polished - shader 4.0 game than the previous one, like it has way too much bumbmapping and the sort. We need more games ala Flower in terms of graphics, truely unique and not just a copy of the usus. Can´t wait to play The Witness!
TheKayle1  +   645d ago
more time? ok out for x720 and ps4
contradictory  +   645d ago
by all means
take more time

it's better to have a good finished game
rather than unfinished POS *CoughSonic06Cough*
