Kojima: The Phantom Pain will be 300 times larger than Ground Zeroes

The map size of Ground Zeroes in Metal Gear Solid V will be about 1/300 the size of the area found in The Phantom Pain section. (Hideo Kojima, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

hopefully this is true and across all platforms. I expect nothing less for next gen consoles.
crxss  +   739d ago
it will be, wont be much difference. though i'm starting to think ground zeroes is going to be a lot like the tanker incident in mgs2 and phantom pain will be more like big shell. still gonna love it though.
mewhy32  +   739d ago
I just hope that the quality holds up to the hype.
assdan  +   739d ago
Hopefully this will mean that the phantom pains is huge and ground zeroes isn't tiny lol.
Jughead3416  +   739d ago
Either Ground Zeros is really short, or Phantom Pain is insanely huge.

Kojima announce a release date and a kickass collectors edition, you already have my money

i hope this game gets a release date soon, but i know it won't be anytime before fall 2014

also how will this be released?

will we get 2 games? one via psn/xblive other retail disk?

Which from the bluray will installed straight on the much faster access hdd.
KingPin  +   739d ago
and to think once upon a time microsoft said blu-ray wasn't needed. digital was the way to go.
TheXgamerLive  +   739d ago
It wasnt needed last gen but this is now and next gen is upon us. Bigger storage needed.
Most new games will probably be anywhere from 15 fo 50 gigs from the start. Some new RPG titles maybe 60 to 70 gigs. Tbe depth/details of a title such as Desfiny will be even greater.

Nothing in gaming is 'needed', but thats not to say that more memory, more space on the CD, more processing power makes things better.

I thought they were the same thing...

What did I miss?
Nyxus  +   739d ago | Helpful
GZ is the prologue. TPP will be much bigger, and will take place nine years later, I believe. Both sections together make up MGSV.
WeAreLegion  +   739d ago
Oooooohhhh... That's weird. Haha. I'm so excited for this though! Thanks for the info! +bubbles
MasterCornholio  +   739d ago
Sort of like the tanker then it switches to big shell.

Typical Kojima.


I love his work though.
HeyImBen11  +   739d ago
Its like Gran Turismo Prologue and Grand Turismo 5 :).

XD nice job Koyes, when i read his comment, that exactly what i thought.

No its like every other MGS game -_-.....
amnalehu  +   739d ago
im so confused. how many new MG games are there now? I thought these were one in the same. and what difference does it make how much larger it is than a game we don't even know the size of? It's like telling someone 20% off the price without saying what the original price is.
wishingW3L  +   739d ago
well, one thing is for sure, you can't argue with fanboys because you'll never win anyway.
KwietStorm  +   739d ago
They're the same game, 2 different periods/sections of the story as a whole.

Freak of Nature  +   739d ago
I wonder how large it compares to Skyrim, GTA5, RDR for example?
wishingW3L  +   739d ago
now that's a comparison that would make more sense instead of comparing a map with have never seen to another map we have never seen either.
ZBlacktt  +   739d ago
Or better yet AC4 BF which is insane insane with a SH*T load to do and see.
Angels3785  +   739d ago
and just cause 2...that was massive.....
elhebbo16  +   739d ago
yea but JC2 had a lot of repeated scenery and textures.... still big though.
WorldGamer  +   739d ago
Has he confirmed if Ground Zero and Phantom Pain are on the same disk?

I hope so, even if he charged a little extra. Say $75?
Nyxus  +   739d ago
Still hasn't been confirmed, but according to journalists who attended a demo and Q&A session not too long ago, the way he talked about it seemed to suggest it would be separate releases.

I do hope they will also offer it as one bundle, though.
jahfen83  +   739d ago
For whatever strange reason, Kojima is calling the beginning of MGSV Ground Zeros and the rest of the game Phantom Pain.
wishingW3L  +   739d ago
MGS3 has a prologue and it was called differently from the main game. The only difference is that he didn't promote it like he's doing with MGSV. But the MGS3 prologue was only like 30 means to 1 hour long depending on your play-style... But it seems this one will be much more longer and in-depth.

Shane Kim  +   739d ago
Yeah MGS2 and MGS3 but they didn't have different names or at least they weren't presented as two different games.
DEEBO  +   739d ago
yeah i hope this all one game.i think he said it's was,i know big boss moves just like the original boss.the cqc is nice,i like the reaction slow motion affect.and it's open world.it's good to be a gamer.
Ninja_G_Aidan  +   739d ago
In Kojima San we trust!
I;ve always been interested in him remaking the very original Metal Gear 1 and 2's.
v6volume  +   739d ago
I'm hoping and praying they do this. Especially considering Keifer Sutherland is Big Boss, it opens the door for David Hayter to come back.

Oh yeah and the whole thing about Kojima altering the story from MG2 to fit in with Metal Gear Solid 1

@ape007 MGS V will have 2 chapters that are actually 2 separate games Ground Zeroes will be chapter 1 and The Phantom Pain will be chapter 2, hope this helps.
ape007  +   739d ago
thanks, so this entire gen will be full of MGS V

It's always good to know that Metal Gear games are not going to stop being confusing?
Hope the movie will be a little bit more straight forward, just like Memento or Jacobs ladder or 2001 ect.

Isn't that a pic of RDR? Why do they keep showing that same pic?
solidboss  +   739d ago
cant tell if you are serious......
shadow2797  +   739d ago
No that's from Metal Gear Solid V gameplay. First seen at Microsoft's E3 conference.

Graphically, that screen looks much, much better than RDR.
Lighter9  +   738d ago
Yep, it's Snake. I see now. It looks an awful lot like RDR though. Idk much about the MGS games... For me, seeing Snake on a horse is weird. That looks like Pike's Basin in the background too. lol
chazjamie  +   739d ago
i dont know wtf is going on. is this two separate games?

1 game

Shut up and take my money kojima!
mgszelda1  +   739d ago
Can ppl stop trying to say TPP and GZ are separate. Prologue and Main game.
MGS2 Tanker/Big Shell
MGS3 Virtious mission/Snake Eater
Same as those
Luke_fon_Fabre  +   739d ago
Signs now point to them being two seperate releases. The demos shown at TGS had a menu that said "METAL GEAR SOLID GROUND ZEROES Press Start".

How about going retro with Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2?

I want next gen maps to take me an hour to cross with no fast travel. I'm not being sarcastic either, I truly want this.
CuddlyREDRUM  +   739d ago
Just thinking about this game makes me sleepy.
Varzoth  +   739d ago
When I first saw the article it cuts off at the "larger than Gr", I thought it was going to say Grand Theft Auto V. That would have been absurd for a game like this.
Luke_fon_Fabre  +   739d ago
If people had paid attention to the MGSV demos at TGS, they'd have noticed the title menu says "Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes Press Start". People are as sure as they can be right now that there will be 2 separate releases without Kojima actually announcing it.
2v1  +   739d ago
so..$120 usd to play MGS5.?
L4NCEYJSC  +   739d ago

Can someone please explain the difference between the 2? I'm hearing they are going to be part of the same game and other forums say it is 2 separate games.

Is someone kind enough to explain the difference as I'm unsure why this approach is being taken?

GTA 5 has blown me away so I have high hopes for this if one is going to be open world.
