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.
hopefully this is true and across all platforms. I expect nothing less for next gen consoles.
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.
I just hope that the quality holds up to the hype.
Hopefully this will mean that the phantom pains is huge and ground zeroes isn't tiny lol.
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?
These images are next gen right?
DAT BLU RAY STORAGE
Which from the bluray will installed straight on the much faster access hdd.
and to think once upon a time microsoft said blu-ray wasn't needed. digital was the way to go.
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?
GZ is the prologue. TPP will be much bigger, and will take place nine years later, I believe. Both sections together make up MGSV.
Oooooohhhh... That's weird. Haha. I'm so excited for this though! Thanks for the info! +bubbles
Sort of like the tanker then it switches to big shell. Typical Kojima. :) I love his work though.
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 -_-.....
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.
well, one thing is for sure, you can't argue with fanboys because you'll never win anyway.
They're the same game, 2 different periods/sections of the story as a whole.
I wonder how large it compares to Skyrim, GTA5, RDR for example?
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.
Or better yet AC4 BF which is insane insane with a SH*T load to do and see.
and just cause 2...that was massive.....
yea but JC2 had a lot of repeated scenery and textures.... still big though.
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?
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.
For whatever strange reason, Kojima is calling the beginning of MGSV Ground Zeros and the rest of the game Phantom Pain.
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.
Yeah MGS2 and MGS3 but they didn't have different names or at least they weren't presented as two different games.
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.
In Kojima San we trust! I;ve always been interested in him remaking the very original Metal Gear 1 and 2's.
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
Damnnnn i can't wait
what's MGS V, GZ and PP, can anyone please clarify...
@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.
thanks, so this entire gen will be full of MGS V awesome
man!! so many good games coming out this year/next year. Guess I'll Have to Save Up some more money...
It's always good to know that Metal Gear games are not going to stop being confusing? LoL. Hope the movie will be a little bit more straight forward, just like Memento or Jacobs ladder or 2001 ect.
300 times!? I can't wrap my head around that scale.
Isn't that a pic of RDR? Why do they keep showing that same pic?
cant tell if you are serious......
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.
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
i dont know wtf is going on. is this two separate games?
GTA V Rockstar said 3x time map O_o
Ground Zeroes is literally one camp, I would be surprised if PP was smaller.
Shut up and take my money kojima!
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
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".
i cant wait to abandon all social aspects of my life to play through them multiple times in my basement surrounded by, Gushers and Cranberry juice.
After I beat mgs1 on the ps2. I never cared about mgs ever again.
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.
Just thinking about this game makes me sleepy.
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.
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.
so..$120 usd to play MGS5.?
OK 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.
Hope most of that 300 aren't barren.
Am I the only one thinking Ground Zeroes is the same game but the prologue mission of it?
Guys it's simple...MGS5 is the Kill Bill of video games.
THE ANTICIPATION IS KILLING ME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MGSV IS GONNA BE THE NEXT BEST THING SINCE MGS4, CHANGING THE GAMEING WORLD IS WHAT KOJAMI IS A MASTER AT
