Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes - VS - Phantom of Pain

When Kojima revealed Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes to the community, it had us all in awe at the almost Next - Gen visuals. Konami also took things even further by revealing the open world elements of the game. A few months after Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes released, Konami revealed Metal Gears Solid: The Phantom of Pain, an extension to the event’s happening in Ground Zeroes. The two experiences may cover the adventures of Snake, but the two experiences are very different. (Metal Gear : Solid Snake, Metal Gear Solid 4, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

says it will be packaged differently..so maybe like...how dead rising 2 had that prologue and THEN the full retail game?...or if it'll be two separate game entities unto themselves..

that's the bit they aren't clear about..

I think it will be one game called "The Phantom Pain" and the prologue mission will be called Ground Zeroes. Similar to the Tanker mission in MGS2

So it's the Phantom OF pain? I thought it was just the phantom pain. The phantom pain sounds alot better.

It is the Phantom Pain, don't know where the website got "of" from.

Just a typo, the rest of the article states "Phantom Pain"

IGN explained it well few months back, it is one game in one package

but who knows its all confusing as of now in true Kojima style lol
When did IGN confirm that? Link? All I know is that Kojima is constantly asked this question about how they are be sold and he always says" I can't talk about that right now". Well why the hell not? it's obvious to me that it is going to be sold separately or else there wouldn't be any confusion.

Kojima started the entire GDC panel by saying that Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain combine to make MGS5.

but its all confusing so just wait and see
I know he said that but what that means in my opinion is that Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain are two halves of the same game. I know that Kojima said that GZ is the prologue but it is probably a long prologue. If you look at the TGS demo for GZ then it has it's own title screen and it has several mission select slots which tells me it will be relatively long for a prologue which spans multple missinos. Hopefully before this year ends we will get GZ.
