Metal Gear Solid 5 needs PS4 to fully tap the potential of Kojima’s Fox future

OPM: I want MGS 5 The Phantom Pain like its legendary pirate-eyed soldier craves two working peepers. Konami’s Fox Engine is capable of feats of graphical voodoo you couldn’t have imagined while your corneas were being scraped out by Ridge Racer 7’s jaggies. The only problem is, I don’t think PS3 is capable of giving this exciting new tech the platform it truly deserves. It needs PS4. (Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PS3, PS4)

"Metal Gear Solid 5 needs PS4 to fully tap the potential of Kojima’s Fox future"

Konami don't have the money to do that, if they really do, they would already making MGS remake and fully tap PS4 potential.

So buy more MGS Legacy Collection.
The_Sneauxman  +   844d ago
It is coming to the PS4, what are you talking about?
Kojima has 0 interest in making a remake
Mainman  +   844d ago
In my opinion Kojima should just cancel the current-gen version's of the game. Unless the current-gen version's are scheduled to be released a couple months before the next-gen versions.

I'm surprised... why hasn't anyone mention how fucking good it'll look on a high end rig? oh wait that's right MGS is now on PC! Fuck yeah Kojima!
fr0sty  +   844d ago
Because those who actually own high end rigs make up a tiny fraction of the total gamers out there.
christrules0041  +   844d ago
Not every PC owner has a high end PC. To make that level of detail the costs will rise for development while limiting how many PC players can actually buy the game. I'm not saying PCs don't play games great because high end PCs do and it's a given that it'll look great on them. But if they go around saying you need a high end PC to play it PC gamers would freak if they couldn't afford it.

It's simply them not wanting to sink there company.
ShinMaster  +   844d ago
High-end gaming "rigs" are in the minority.

It doesn't surprise me when most of the PC fans boasting about high-end PCs don't have one of their own.

Also, why so surprised? Most people don't care (something PC elitists don't seem to want to accept). So you guys will always be around to remind everyone of how much better PCs are than consoles and blah blah redundant information blah blah.

and will sale POORLY like EVERY SINGLE mgs that came out for it

ppl knows where MGS sales...its called PLAYSTATION
and ppl also knows where MGS5 will sale the most...PS4.
Kurylo3d  +   844d ago
I think people are confused. High end rigs arent even needed. Mid range rigs are better then ps4. Truth. I am buying ps4 myself, but statistically speaking, my 4 year old pc has more power then ps4. Why do u think so many devs were complaining early on.
_QQ_  +   843d ago
Because fanboys.
wishingW3L  +   843d ago
you don't really need a high-end PC to max out a console game anyway. The best version will be PC no matter what. Stay free!
extermin8or  +   843d ago
Now I could be behind but when did kojima announce a pc version. Originally he was it was console only? (abit like R* sometimes do)
C4rnos  +   843d ago
In general terms guys, i should have actually said i'm just extremely happy to see MGS on PC is all...

Mid range rigs could easily be compared to the next-gen consoles, and i look forward to playing it on PC, the reason Kojima must have approved it is due to the similar architecture, and when exclusives go multiplat, thats a win for PC gamers.

Console gamers don't realise a lot of amazing games never make their way to PC, and PC gaming in general is getting the shaft...
RedHawkX  +   844d ago
i agree everyone should get the ps4 so we all can experience gaming at its best and fully tap the potential of gaming and have an extra 100 dollars to get mgs5.

dont see why anyone would pay more for xbox when its the weaker system that can unleash the full potential of gaming like the ps4 can.

"dont see why anyone would pay more for xbox when its the weaker system that can unleash the full potential of gaming like the ps4 can."

I going to ignore your tenuous grasp of the English language and point out that Xbone buyers chose their console for the same reason I chose a PS4: games. There are games that only Xbox provides that some people don't want to go without. It's powerful enough to provide great gaming experiences, that's all that matters. If the situation were reversed, I'd still be buying a PS4, because I like the exclusives. A spec war isn't going to affect my ability to enjoy the next effort by Sucker Punch, Naughty Dog, SSM or others.
P.S. If you're going to troll, at least learn how to imitate an intelligent person while doing so.
TwistedMetal  +   843d ago
I agree dude ps4 is the smarter choice.


seems like you fighting on the wrong side bro because there is nothing wrong with supporting the better and cheaper system. there is something wrong with supporting the expensive weaker system when all its games are multiplat and its online costs more. the xbox one just isn't a smart gaming choice at all. maybe later after a price drop but right now ps4 is cheaper, more powerful, and has more games and franchises. its the system to get if you want a lot of gamers to play against online in multiplayer with mics and headsets and such. ps4 also can play with pc gamers the xbox one never will.
Raiden  +   843d ago
All you people are writing x1 before it even arrives, all because of the specs. The only way to test this will be the games at the launch and vs the games 6 months after, eg, Forza v GTand the time it takes to make it, don't forget how long it tsked Sony's first to release a quality title the LAST OF US took just unders 4yrs to make, people should remember gaming is big business and many companies would go bust, also many companies would have two tittles release within that time frame, both systems use the same gpu, forget about the ram, because it esram + old reliable DDR3 VS GDDR5 of which Gd5 will need to powess operations of the unit and the games. People are too quick to write things of, both systems are going to be close, it will take first party AAA to prove with is better and that going to take time so while we all are waiting for this to happen, let's just enjoy what games we have and whatever system you choose, one more thing to remember software programs are crested to manipulate hardware just remember that have a nice day all

yep that makes since as the mgs4 was and still is ps3 exclusive. you need to play all the metal gear solid games to understand the series and get the most out of it. you don't just skip over games and play number 5 if you haven't played all the exclusive playstation ones. Most smart people will be picking up this game on the ps3 and ps4 to go with the rest of the mgs series. this people are true fans and gamers.

@JP1369 Where in my comment did I ever mention anything about graphics. If u read it again u might understand that because someone talks about tapping into the full potential of a console obviously doesn't mean only graphics. Think before u write plz.

He got disagrees because it hurts the sh!t out of them to see that he will be playing one of the best games ever made on a Xbox One and that it isnt PlayStation exclusive like some of them were praying.

Hell it may even have exclusive content on the Xone. Usually when MS showcases a multiplat its because theirs exclusive content coming or because its the lead platform.

Yep, no doubt whatsoever on which console I will be playing it.

He gets disagrees because he is in a ps3-ps4 article talking of why would be better to play it on the next generation of playstation, and he comes to say "ill be playing on xbox one" knowing that isnt related to the platforms that were been talked about.
If u got to a playstation section to talk about of xbox ull get disagrees, simple, u will be trolling, same as when ps fanboys go to xbox articles to troll, even if is stealth trolling.

On topic: I dont know how good this game is going to be, different voice, different settings #open world#.. i will wait for it to be released before saying is going to be great #i hope so#, since i played all mgs since ps1
TwistedMetal  +   843d ago

The irony in that false statement is the PC version is the superior version, while the ps4 and X1 will probably look very identical maybe a few more frames here and there but nothing major.
Salooh  +   844d ago
Early next generation console games won't look different then the pc versions because the consoles are not using all it's power , we will see the difference after 2/3 years after they released .

PS4 + Vita + PC = Best gaming experience in my opinion.
Ps4 --> Exclusives
PC --> Multiplatforms
Vita --> Play anywhere you want

You're absolutly right. developers like konami make more money developing MGS on other platforms other than PS.But thats just happening for profit only.Not to make xbox delusional fans happy.

If Kojima wants to fully utilize the PS4, he is going to have to devote time to it. 2 years isn't enough when you realize he is also devoting his time to making it as good as possible on the X-one and PC. It also seems like he is porting this game from the PC to the consoles.

I don't see the console's reaching their full potential until 3 or 4 years into their life cycles.
kingPoS  +   844d ago
At the risk sounding fanboy I'll go right ahead and peel the band-aid off.

Most heartfelt Metal Gear Solid fans usually don't associate Microsoft with the series. Largely because there's no beginning or purported end on the Xbox.

Or to be frank - MG1, MG2, MGS2 & MGS3, but no MGS or MGS4.
Whew! that was close! For a moment there I almost became a fanboy.

I hope Hideo does at least a bit of optimizing for the PS4. Even if it's just a better frame rate, longer draw distance, better textures, etc. I'll be a little disappointed if it's the same on the X1 version considering the PS4 is considerably most powerful.

In fact, I will be furious if publishers aim for parity between the X1 and the PS4 instead of taking advantage of the PS4 hardware. I hope Sony doesn't let that happen.
CuddlyREDRUM  +   843d ago
