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.

I am going to be playing the hell out of this on my PS4! That's a given.

"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_Sneauxman1717d ago

It is coming to the PS4, what are you talking about?
Kojima has 0 interest in making a remake

Mainman1717d 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.

Pisque1717d ago

harrisk I congratz you for having 70 disagrees with 0 agrees I never saw that in my entire life

The_Sneauxman1717d ago

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!

fr0sty1717d ago

Because those who actually own high end rigs make up a tiny fraction of the total gamers out there.

christrules00411717d 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.

ShinMaster1717d ago (Edited 1717d 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.

noctis_lumia1717d ago

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.

Kurylo3d1717d 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.

wishingW3L1717d 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!

extermin8or1717d 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)

C4rnos1717d 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...

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.

malokevi1717d ago


Absolutely lathed in passive-aggressive confrontational fanboy BS.

In true N4G style. Bravo, budday!

JP13691717d ago

"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.

TwistedMetal1717d 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.

Raiden1717d 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

Yap. I'm getting PS4 pretty much with MGS5 in mind. Everything else is Bonus.

TwistedMetal1717d ago

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.

Gster1717d ago

@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.

yep me to it seems like you like agrees and are smart. the dude above you is not very smart because he should known what happens to those who go full retard lol. 75 disagrees. this is playstation nation get used to it boys and girls for another 10 years join the playstation club or fail. the oonly reason to go against the ps4 is if you are an xbox one fanboy.

Don't understand why you got disagrees.

golding891717d ago

Don't you know you get disagrees for any positive comments for the xbox one or MS?


SuperLupe1717d ago

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.

Insomnia_841717d ago

Because any Metal Gear Solid game is and will always be meant to be played on a Playstation System!

; p

Saddam_hussein1717d ago

I am new to this site. I jut found it in a game informer magazine.

NobleRed1717d ago

He's got disagrees because the Xbone is crap.

A lot more people will play the superior version on the ps4.

People like me.

ZodTheRipper1717d ago

Ever thought about that there are people out there who won't play it on Xbox? Why should they agree with him?

thebudgetgamer1717d ago

He got disagrees because who gives a crap what he plays it on.

Hicken1717d ago

He got disagrees because people disagree.

saint_seya1717d ago

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

TwistedMetal1717d ago

it doesn't pay to be an xbox one fanboy so don't be one. don't even see why you would want to hate on the ps4 when its better lol. I guess a lot of you just want to have one bubble by showing you irrational xbox one fanboyism.

Same here, will be playing it on Xbox One since I don't see myself getting a PS4 in the near future. Maybe two years from now who nows.

most people here are xboxphobic

consider their feelings next time xD

gapecanpie1717d ago

"He's got disagrees because the Xbone is crap.

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.

Salooh1717d 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

That_Ninja_Gray_Fox1717d ago

You should slap yourself for wanting a Xbox one in the first place.Then slap yourself again just because you deserve it.

shivvy241717d ago

im getting a ps4 but sunset overdrive trailer looks awesome , hope insomniac pulls it off

showtimefolks1717d ago


and nothing is wrong with that, if that's your console of choice than have fun

i hate this idea of a 3rd party game has to be exclusive for fanboys to really appreciate it, my thing is if one of the better games get played by more gamers than we all win and developers make more

That_Ninja_Gray_Fox1716d ago

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.

Glad they made it open world, never played an MGS before, this one is more appealing to me being open world.

Saddam_hussein1717d ago

In a nice way, how old are you?

N7Lukas1717d ago (Edited 1717d ago )

I know, i know, the thing is, i actually always liked the look of them whenever i saw my friends playing them, just never got round to actually buying and playing them. Ive heard nothing but good things about the series though.

And old enough to have played them all and understood them btw lol

cpayne931717d ago

I honestly reccomend you play all of them to understand the story, its a series that needs to be fully experienced.

Booyah1717d ago

I've played every MGS except the first one on PSX. Is it bad ?

cpayne931716d ago

Is it bad? IS IT BAD???????? It's the best one in my opinion! Easily one of my top three games of all time.

N7Lukas1717d ago (Edited 1717d ago )


And old enough to have been able to play them all and understand them btw lol

HugoDrax1717d ago

Which means you're 30+? I for one watched my cousin play the first NES version, watched my brother complete Snakes Revenge, and the first one I purchased was for my PS1.
