Hideo Kojima Praises The Xbox One, May Integrate Kinect And SmartGlass In MGS 5

"Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain was one of those rare games at E3 that actually looked like a next-gen game. Featuring a massive open world and giving rise to all new stealth options, The Phantom Pain promises to be one of the finest Metal Gear Solid games, if not the greatest."

Playstation fanboys can't take it when someone praises the X1. When are you guys going to accept that both the PS4 and X1 are going to be great gaming platforms.

demonddel2000d ago

@fermcr right see how butthurt they are now they don't like Kojima that group of playstation fans gotta be some scorn women who hates to feel cheated on they feel Kojima is cheating on them so it's not looking good right now they hated EA before when they show xbox love but came back they hate Square now same with Imsomniac and others

TheTwelve2000d ago

Kojima has always had a fascination with America and its culture, so seeing him warming up to Microsoft over the years is annoying but not surprising.


Shadonic2000d ago

I have to agree everyone has been doing 180's

Gaming1012000d ago

It's the fact that we know Microsoft unloaded a truck full of money on Kojima's doorstep. Of course Kojima is going to be sucking Msoft balls, I would too if I was paid millions of dollars for no reason other than to develop for another console.

bsquwhere2000d ago

Wow the only one that sounds like a fanboy is you. I don't see one anti Xbox comment. Plus if I remember correctly when MGS4 came out most Xbox gamers called it crap and hated on it

SDS Gamerfiend2000d ago

When there's no always connected kinect!

aceitman2000d ago

all I can say is money can make people say a lot of things look what we got from Metal Gear Rising , it wasn't what we loved from the metal gear series and im not being a fan boy im just saying , its not like anyone doesn't no ms pays out some good cash to have stuff on there system.

minimur122000d ago

Of course hell praise X1 - he's in bed with MS now, as are insomniac.

pixelsword2000d ago

@ fermcr:

So I guess now Xbox fanboys love movies as games now, eh?

joonkimdmd2000d ago

I own Wii U and also preordered both X1 and PS4. I believe that both of them will be very different even though they share lots of 3rd party games. However, if developers start talking about Kinect features in the game, I will definitely buy PS4 version that does less goofy gimmicks.

raytraceme2000d ago (Edited 2000d ago )

it gets annoying when devs. mention smartglass on the xbox while totally ignoring that the ps4 can do exactly the same thing with vita/android/ios devices if not better since the vita has mostly the same controls as the ds4.

Donnieboi2000d ago

The ps4 will also allow the use of cellphones and tablets. DICE and Ubisoft are already implementing them on ps4.

Also, the ps4 has the ps eye, so it can have these features too. Sure they'll just be gimmicky if Kojma is only NOW implementing the camera.

xxLuckyStrike2000d ago

The lopsided Sony fanboyism on this crap site is disgusting. The biased ignorism and encouraged hypocritical hatrid is rewarded via a flawed a$$ bubble system. Which can still be manipulated via trollwatch. Admins here are a fine group of hit driven sackless wonders. A clear lack of balance and logic are non existent

Gamer19822000d ago

Hes gotta praise the Xbox 1 as hes getting paid a TON of money right now to back it. We all know hes a very good loyal friend to Sony and would prefer to keep his game with Sony just like with Last gen but the money his publisher got meant like with Rising he had no choice but to do an Xbox One and 360 version.

BallsEye2000d ago (Edited 2000d ago )

Give the guy a break. If he'd make it ps4 exclusive you all would praise him, now that he likes X1 you say he sleeps with ms and other crap. Seriously people, grow up.

Dee_Cazo2000d ago

Yeah the 12 year olds on here who get upset that people can like video games and hardware lose their minds over this. Single-handedly ruining N4G.

The_Con-Sept2000d ago

Every metal gear game is great. It is funny when journalists take things out of context to make it seem like a bias is present.

MGS4 was a great game followed by a loyalist statement from kojima. All this means is you will now have to own a cell phone to hear codec calls, and have a PC to hack PC's. Then you will get random phone calls from someone named smegma face....

D-riders2000d ago

@fermcr, MS had their chance with me they fu*ked it up. To me they are not a gaming company but a corporate giant attemting to destroy the industry with fould practices and policies

I dont care about the game of MGs universe. He needs to work on the series he forgot ZOE. He will never make another ZOE. If MGS5 sales is crazy he will just keep working on that.

Me-Time2000d ago

I meant to click "Agree".

FantasyStar2000d ago (Edited 2000d ago )

There's nothing left to do in the ZoE universe anyways. Assuming you've played the games and watched the anime; you'd know that.

Well, we can always use more "cockpit jokes".

ThatsGaming2000d ago

Interesting, personally I am not really bought into Kinect as a "gamers" device.

I do see a lot of use for smart glass though... Especially for RTS and RPG games where menus and keyboards would be typical in the games.

JokesOnYou2000d ago

Wow look at this thread, Kojima a well respected dev most of all by sony fans last gen is now the devil reincarnated, his only crime praising X1. I like many always have been a huge Bungie fan for their awesome work in bringing us the Halo franchise..they moved on, got close with sony and yet I still would never disrespect Bungie for sharing their love of gaming on other platforms. I'd expect 1 or 2 extremists to be all butthurt but I got to say I'm surprised at the level of hate for Kojima. Sad really and some wonder why sonyfanboys got the worst reputation of them all.

TheTwelve2000d ago (Edited 2000d ago )

Nah, Sony fanboys aren't calling him "devil incarnated". Don't let a few morons speak for all of us. We're just a bit suspect of Kojima now...


(Wow, there is a mod blowing up this looks like Hamburger Hill now...)

extermin8or2000d ago

I see like 2 hate comments maybe 3... no idea wtf you are on about... anyone saying MG4's cutscenes didn't take the piss is on crack however games was still great, and peace walker was also great :) I'm disappointed he's considering gimmicky things like kinect or this second screen crap currently in every game under the sun... (except seemingly the wii u where half the games aren't even being ported too...weird) but I won't have to deal with the kinect crap as I'll be playing MGS5 on my ps4... not an xbox one. econd screen stuff will be on ps4 aswell as it supports it via tablets and ps vita aswell-so why he wouldn't have it supported by both consoles I don't know-really wish he wouldn't though...

JokesOnYou2000d ago (Edited 2000d ago )

exterminator are you serious, read all the closed posts and the rest of this thread....GamersRulz,Mr Nutz,Cam977,abzdine,Need4game, Gamig101,Gardenia,Masseffect23 ...need I go on? There plenty more further down.

The Twelve I know its not ALL sony fans my apologies but it sure is alot of 'em I mean I did read alot of Kojima is paid off type comments which sadly implies his statements are only about money and NOT his true feelings...I dont know about you but questioning a persons integrity may not make him the devil but it is f-up. Listen anybody with half a brain could probably coorectly assume there was some financial incentive/payment to present a micros show but doing business and being paid off to say things you dont believe are two very different things.

TongkatAli2000d ago

Jokes on you if you believe that.

aceitman2000d ago

but have u seen him say anything about the ps4 , nope not one thing positive over x1 , but one system has its advantages over the other x1 can have some over ps4 and ps4 can have some over x1 . but Kojima has not stated anything that the ps4 can do better over x1 , but he states x1 has advantages over ps4.

humbleopinion2000d ago (Edited 2000d ago )

His crime is not only praising Xbox One, but actually highlighting a feature that might be exclusive to the Xbox One.

And the worst thing, he's forgoing the exclusivity deal with Sony they had in MGS4.
It must be his fault, no matter how much it simply makes sense that it's Sony who probably didn't want to pay up for exclusivity this time around. It's not 2008 anymore and the PS3 now has a wide selection of in-house exclusives.

So to sum up lunatic fanboy logic: a developer wants to only make a game for only a single platform, and give up on the tens of millions of potential customers on the other platform.
It makes so much business sense! It's not the console owner who showed up with a sack of money up his front door asking for exclusivity, but rather the other console owner offering him exposure to millions of potential customers who needs to "bribe him".

Some people here are just lost cause.

AngelicIceDiamond1999d ago


I remember at one point MSFB's had the worst reputation. That record has easily been broken thanks to SFB and there crazy gifs and allegiance and pro hate for MS.

Its funny because it all started with PlayStation releasing more exclusives than 360, that's it.

Just like @Jokes said Bungie is making an incredible new universe. And Bungie has never been this focused since the first Halo Ip. With that being said Sony did partner with Bungie to promote the game. How come we don't see MS loyalist and MSfanboys storming the Destiny articles and saying "Bungie sold out" Bungies in bed with Sony" Sony wrote a huge check and through money in there face." or any other hypocritical statements? Seeing how the site is supposed "even with fanboys from both sides"

I bet you 100 bucks nobody can answer this.

I never seen those comments from MS fans or fanboys.

Look everyone beliefs now a days are paid to say nice things about their systems nothing new, since I started gaming 23 years ago thing like these happen

Now if someone can actually integrate kinect right to Kojima, MGS5 looks sick cant wait but I know we gonna have at least 15-18 months plus wait

sweetSWAGGER2000d ago (Edited 2000d ago )

I think the level of strategic freedom the player is given in most Metal Gear Solid titles goes up and over most other AAA games. So, funny enough, saying that the gameplay is secondary only makes other games look THAT much weaker by comparison.

Look at MGS4; you can't tell me the level of choice you had gameplay-wise was low JUST because Kojima put a lot into the story. The gameplay was solid, and allowed the player plenty of freedom.

Now look at Phantom Pain. If you've been following the game like I have, you'd take the trailer's word for it when it says "unparalleled strategic freedom".
With the few details we've been given, there are already hundreds of ways the player can approach a mission: time of day, weather, weapons, transportation, when you want a chopper to come get you and where you want it to take you (hell, you can even pick the song that plays inside it!)

I apologize for the text wall, but honestly, Kojima has proven time and again that he WILL deliver solid gameplay. The fact that it comes second is like saying aerial shells come second to assorted fireworks. If I have to choose between an aerial shell and the same novelty fireworks we keep getting from other AAA games, I'll go with the former.

brandonklex2000d ago

Kojima is just putting up his finger into American people...That is to say if u r smart enough n following his titles, he is revenging for the atomic bombs. This is just a cover-up move alongside with pushing suspecting-David Hayter behind...He is a Japan-maniac and a patriot.

bganci2000d ago

Do you guys really think the Playstation Eye will be as powerful as the Kinect? How to win the internet Hate Microsoft, love Sony.

Jaces2000d ago

Don't care. Just give me MGS5 already!

vlonjati77vlonjati2000d ago

nice one lol cant wait for MGSV.

Philoctetes1999d ago

I hate Kinect as much as the next guy, mainly because it seems like a gimmick every single time developers incorporate it into a game. But if anybody is going to find a creative, non-gimmicky way to use Kinect, it will be Kojima. I'm very interested in seeing what he comes up with.

Ginesis1999d ago

@raytraceme and @Donnieboi There's a difference between Microsoft and Sony's, Android and iOS push to cellphones and tablets. Right now Smart glass is available on more devices, while PS Mobile is on a very limited number of devices right now. They have to be "PlayStation Certified" first, whatever that means.
