Kojima Forced to Leak Metal Gear Solid V for VGA Trailer Spot

The case of Moby Dick Studios and The Phantom Pain was an odd one. The trailer for what most of us thought was a fresh IP had the world abuzz during last year’s Video Game Awards, but not exactly for the right reasons. (Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PS4, Xbox One)

Well that's interesting. Makes sense though, I doubt they'd want some no name game with a no name studio, with such a confusing trailer, to spotlight the show.

Yeah, it seemed to be a necessary step to take.

Loved this game on Ps1 & Ps2 then it went a bit I don't know rubbish .

Does anyone watch the VGA awards? Honest question... I've always thought of it as some lame spike tv attempt to lure the male demographic in by pretending to give a **** about video games.

Metal Gear Solid V is a Great Movie with "Gameplay" add-on.

So It is perfect for TV Audiences.

You must be thinking about the XBox One.

Metal gear is a pretty overrated series.... I picked up metal gear 4, on the cheap, and felt like I was playing a game from 1998. But, it is only overrated by its fans, the games never sell that great, I think solid 4 sold around 3-4 million, not that much for such a big game.... Lame, convoluted story, with 15 year old gameplay... But it was the gameplay that put me off... Just deals so.... Generic, and cheap. Don't hate me for what I said, it is simply one mans opinion of a game, and series. I still love playstation, and can't wait for the ps4, just nothing with the name metal gear on it....

I'm hoping Kojima is trolling us with Sutherland.

90% sure he is after looking at Hayters twitter. So I went ahead and preordered teh Legacy Collection.

Gonna hope Hayter will be announced in a new trailer soon to get the real fans hyped.

Last year's show was mildly better, without hip-hop artists and wrestlers coming out on stage to do things none of us care about. Still, it was pretty bad.

Most people watch it for the reveals, especially the big one they always end the night with.

I admit I "watch" it while I do other things while listening for game trailer intros. It isn't something I would watch if weren't a few decent reveals or nice look into future games though.

Nope, I hate award shows on the whole and the idea of Video Game Awards is a joke in itself (hell all awards shows are jokes). I just looked at the reveal trailers after the fact when everyone had a copy on their websites.

I watch it every year for the game reveals (Naughty Dog's games are always announced there). I'm usually doing something else at the same time tho.

DVR it to zip thrugh to announcements, premiers and such and maybe a few awards but 70% I skip. Bad comedy attempts, actors/acrtesses making gaming quotes that don't work, gimicky crap easily skippable.

He wasn't forced too, if he didn't want to reveal it he didn't have to use the trailer spot.
despair  +   799d ago
yea they made it sound worse than it was.

I was fooled for about 5 minutes before the flood of information that showed it was MGS V, people are insane with figuring this crap out. I suck at it though.
TekoIie  +   799d ago
We were still skeptical though. I think many figured it out as soon as we saw Snake but the "mystical fantasy" parts of the trailer were pretty good at throwing people off the scent :)

I use 2 love metal gear , but spllnter cell came about crush it. Then splinter cell gets lamer every new game , now we stuck with no stealh games .The last of us hits the scene now us stealh fans can rejoice. I would love if this metal gear game can be great again, snake is a bad man!!!

Movie or not. Metal Gear Solid still one of the best franchises ever created in the gaming industry.

Not the greatest series, not even one of em... It's overrated.... Perhaps the most overrated series ever.. Metal gear solid on ps1 was awesome for its time.... But the rest of them are the exact same thing with better graphics... No evolution in gameplay whatsoever..... Bought metal gear 4 used, deals old and generic, like I was playing that old ps1 game from 1998..... There are games from ten years ago that have better gameplay, lets not even try to compare it to actual modern games.... No comparison.
