Hideo Kojima Wants You to Play Metal Gear Solid V on PS4; Shows Tablet Touch Controls

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is going to be released soon on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PS3, and Director Hideo Kojima would like gamers to play the game on PS4. He also showcased the touch control on tablets.

Update:

Update: Kojima just tweeted the same message in English. I kind of expected him to add "and Xbox One" for the English version, but he didn't.

of course he will say that for JAPAN!!! Xbox hasn't got a presence in Japan .

flamebait title

GarrusVakarian888d ago (Edited 888d ago )

He's not saying it "for Japan", lol. Read the article ;) He was asking people to play it on PS4 as opposed to last gen consoles, the X1 version hasn't got a release date yet so this isn't an X1 vs PS4 thing.

Sephiroushin888d ago

lol He was actually talking about Japan, if you see on the interview he says “Next generation console? Here PS4 and ONE are already current generation” for him oversea the PS4 and One is a current gen console ( as it should be, the next gen is getting old, people should stop using it already the so called next gen is already here so it should be "current gen" and "last gen", we have to wait another 5-6 years for "next gen" consoles ); yet he says "Ground Zeroes will also be launch on -current generation consoles-, but I want you to play on PS4 if possible." see there he refer to PS3 as a the current gen console and not the PS4, because the PS4 has yet to release in Japan ! so yeah its not a X1 vs PS4 thing but he was talking indirectly about Japan ...

@seph

" He was actually talking about Japan"

Facepalm. I didn't say he wasn't talking about Japan, but FOR Japan and ABOUT Japan are different things, lol. Ballbags' comment made it sound like Kojima was being patriotic/biased and wanting people to play it on the Japanese console (FOR Japan)....which isn't the case. You just wrote a totally irrelevant/hard to understand wall of text based on you not being able to distinguish between 'for' Japan and 'about' Japan.

Not reading peoples comment's properly is a chronic problem on this website.

abzdine888d ago

i would prefer a vita App companion to have a dynamic use of the touch screen instead of having to pause the game to grab the tablet.
Vita Remote play would be big deal of this game as i see it

sinspirit887d ago

He posted a message in Japanese for Japanese people telling them they should get the PS4 version since XBox One doesn't have a firm release date on Japan. He is literally saying this for Japan and it's not because of personal preference it's because of the circumstance of XBox One's launch in Japan. So yes he is saying it "For Japan". In the West he wouldn't mention any specific console to be played on. In Japan it's a whole different circumstance.

Evilsnuggle887d ago (Edited 887d ago )

correct me if I'm wrong Don't Hideo Kojima live in Japan . PS4 nor xbone is available in Japan how either One be considered Current generation. Neither one of those consoles are available in Japan I would concerned that next gen Still. Sound like fanBoy butt hurt to me. Hideo Kojima is just trying to sell his game. you FanBoys are making it into a pissing contest relax.

adorie887d ago

There's a reason why his message was in Japanense, Japonicus. XD

GarrusVakarian887d ago (Edited 887d ago )

@adorie

Wow....how many times do i have to explain this before you people understand? It was in Japanese.....for Japanese people (duh)....but BALLBAGS' comment and the title of the article were making it seem like he was promoting the PS4 version over the X1 version, which isn't what he was doing.

His comment was in Japanese for Japanese people to understand, but it wasn't for them in the sense that he's being patriotic and doing his country a service by promoting the PS4 version lol. He was just asking people to get it on PS4 instead of last gen systems.

And my username has nothing to do with Japan or anything remotely Japanese. JapONicus.......

pyramidshead887d ago

Literally cannot wait until devs drop last gen. Will be more budget friendly for everyone involved and will lead to better games.

I just cringe how they manage to squeeze these awesomely pretty games into last gen shoes, must be such a chore.

Like getting G cup breasts into an A cup bra.

adorie887d ago (Edited 887d ago )

@lucas
Way to be dramatic.

Instead of critting the comments section with the great wall of text. Why not just say Kojima basically asked his twitter followers in Japan to purchase his new game on ps4 since that is where he feels the best experience will be and due to the fact that X1 has no release date? Since he doesn't mention x1 for that reason.

Simplicity.

Also, as for your User Name; come on. The spelling is damned near the same aside from the psuedo latin after the N.

Lol....wow.

"Instead of critting the comments section with the great wall of text.

Which is EXACTLY what i was doing in my first comment before someone took it the wrong way and made an argument out of nothing. LEARN TO READ. My original comment "He's not saying it "for Japan", lol. Read the article ;) He was asking people to play it on PS4 as opposed to last gen consoles, the X1 version hasn't got a release date yet so this isn't an X1 vs PS4 thing." See?

"Also, as for your User Name; come on. The spelling is damned near the same aside from the psuedo latin after the N."

Oh wow.....i don't think ive ever had someone tell me about my own username....that is odd. So you are TELLING me that my username is Japanese influenced? Wow. If you must know......it's what my aunties used to call me as a kid...i loved the movie "Gladiator" so they gave me a gladiator name and it stuck, so they called me that every time my family gathered on the weekends.....

It's Lukas btw, not Lucas. Sigh.

adorie887d ago

After this reply I will not further waste time addressing you here, any longer. You've lost the plot.

As for your user name you can thank my mobile for spell correct. Apologies. Lastly, can you stop with "wow" stuff? Sounds tabloid and melodramatic. You've got a response? Send a pm.

Sephiroushin887d ago

LMFAO *Facepalm*... I know ballbags comment is biased duh, but Hideo's comment is directed to Japanese, it was about Japan, therefore for Japan (Japanese people) ...

He is just asking people to play on current gen consoles and not last gen, he didn't mention the X1 because it has no release date for JP <--- That's what I meant, kinda the same thing you said duh just that your "for Japan" was irrelevant in the comment because his comment was actually for Japan; so hard to understand it seems but w/e, and no need for a reply I won't read it anyways!

GarrusVakarian887d ago (Edited 887d ago )

@seph

"He is just asking people to play on current gen consoles and not last gen, he didn't mention the X1 because it has no release date for JP"

I already know that, it's exactly what i said in my first comment.

"your "for Japan" was irrelevant in the comment "

No it wasn't, it was perfectly relevant because i was addressing BALLBAGS and the article title. I don't how many times i have to word that for you to understand it. Your lack of reading comprehension is the reason this long ass argument ensued anyways. Look at all of those comments, all because you can't read properly.

"For Japan" in the sense that it's in Japanese language.

"For Japan" in the sense that he is being patriotic and doing his country a service by promoting the PS4 version over any other version, which isn't what he was saying. You are talking about Kojima and what Kojima was saying whereas i was talking about BALLBAGS and the article title being misleading.

I was obviously talking about the 2nd variant. You and many others need to learn to read, you embarrass yourselves.

GarrusVakarian887d ago (Edited 887d ago )

I will even spell it out for you and the others once and for all, read slowly!

BALLBAGS original comment : "of course he will say that for JAPAN!!!"

I then assured him that Kojima wasn't saying it for Japan in a patriotic way or a biased way, just that he wants people to play the PS4 version over the last gen versions. The title was a little misleading. Imagine him holding a Japanese flag and shouting "FOR JAPAN!...that's how the title and BALLBAGS comment make it sound. Haha.

You then came in and completely took my comment the wrong way/misinterpreted it and caused a giant wall of text to commence.

Im not saying he didn't say it in Japanese for Japanese people, just that he wasn't saying it for Japan in a biased way to promote the PS4 version over the American rival.

My agrees and your disagrees basically prove that the majority of people understood exactly what i was saying. It's not my problem if you still don't.

Cake_Daddy887d ago

Xbox one isn't releasing next month in Japan. Also why would you not encourage people to get the best of what will be available if possible?

Patrick_pk44887d ago

In the end, the PS4 will be the best place to play it on. Can the Xbone even handle the game? It can barely handle COD.

redwin887d ago

Yes, I read it. The game is also coming out for 360 but he wants you to get it for ps4 and not on Microsoft . I feel like the Xbox is not doing well there because that type of sentiment . That's sad, we don't do east, west bashing here in the states.

BALLBAGS887d ago

@sephirousin ..my comment is biased? Because I didn't promote Sony in my comment? Your suffering from fanboy fever my old son.

I am far from a Microsoft fanboy as I am far from a Sony fanboy..I own BOTH consoles.get it right

Bob Dole887d ago

All y'all need to chill. Over complication and whatnot. People will be playin' this game on whatever they can play it on regardless of what Kojima meant. Bob Dole personally can't wait till he gets his hands on this. Might even call into work.

You could try reading the article next time. With that said, your horribly wrong and look stupid. K?

liquidhalos887d ago

Relax, read the article before you lose your temper like a child. The article isnt trolling its basically saying better on next gen. Chill out, its not an xbox PS war. geez

HammerKong887d ago

i think title of this article is flaim bait for fanboys where kojima never mentioned to play it on ps4 as a better version ,people dont go on the title read the artcle it is only just the stupid mistake of the writer of this article,why would kojima will want people to play on only one version.thats about logic.

ZombieKiller887d ago

"Hideo Kojima Wants You to Play Metal Gear Solid V on PS4"

-Well don't you worry Kojima. I BOUGHT a PS4 FOR your game.

You want me to play it on PS4? DONE.

DAS692887d ago (Edited 887d ago )

Xbone doesn't have a "presence" anywhere. :D

JodyCones887d ago

While yes, PlayStation dominates Xbox in Japan, they're also beating them worldwide now. So I think this referring to every country.

linkenski887d ago

Or more to the point. MGS has been on PS mostly, so naturally.

JasonKCK887d ago

Hasn't he shown tablet controls for both consoles?

UnHoly_One887d ago

The best game this guy ever made was Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner

That game was spectacular.

gigoran887d ago

I don't understand why there are all the disagreements. This is a fact, and unless the fanboys have all lived in Japan they wouldn't know this. I have lived in Japan to see the xbox, 360, and soon to be xbone released. All microsoft titles enjoy a very small presence in Japanese stores. That presence is a week or 2 on a shelf (yes as in ONE self), and after that are quickly tossed into a discount bin. The discount bins are often filled with ps1, ps2, loose game boy games, and so on. This is a FACT! Not a playstation fanboy tease, but a 100% FACT!.

Next, any Japanese person saying they have a microsoft console to a friend will be met with first laughter, and second "really?" FACT!

Microsoft is a joke in Japan.

Again, this isn't playstation favoritism. This is stone face fact. Of course microsoft fanboys blind with rage are going to disagree with it, but that's like an idiot saying that cold water is hot. Say it all you like, but that water is always gonna be cold.

Tablet controls damn this magic, I'm still excited for this game.

Meltic888d ago

i want to play it so bad. I hope this ground zero ''demo'' wont be to short. it only cost 30$ here i live when its released

Sam Fisher887d ago

All his games can be beat under 3 to 5 hours, i mean he even promotes the game to be beaten at a short period of time. (In order to get the big boss title need to beat the game under 5hrs on hard difficultly). So yes it will be short

monkey602887d ago

In all fairness though they are speed runs. For the seasoned player that has completed the same game previously and knows the every inch of the game.

adorie887d ago

U mad Sammy? Try that mess under media black out and without any assistance of any kind on your first play through at the highest difficulty available.

MegaRay888d ago

Who want to play games in 720p if they can play it at 1080p? I mean seriously i myself will play all 3rd party games on a PS4 whenever i got one xP

Abriael888d ago (Edited 888d ago )

Those that don't have the consoles that can play them at 1080p.

Unreal01887d ago

Abriael

Yeah but in that case, they still will probably 'want' to play them in 1080p. It just means they can't.

bryam1982887d ago

xbones don't mind playing games in last gen 720p....just saying

IcarusOne887d ago

It's true. Because without the 1080p side by side, no one can tell the difference. But we do get the xbone OS, which is actually pretty sweet and innovative, once you take off the flaming fanboy glasses.

HammerKong887d ago

hey it is announced to be 1080p on xb1 and ps4 both so people will not mind to play it on xb1 ,fanboy of 1982.

DeadIIIRed887d ago

and I never thought there was a huge difference between 30 FPS and 60 FPS until I played some games on my PS4. The 1080p is really noticeable when you are playing a game with large draw distances like this one.

ZombieKiller887d ago

People with 720P TV's or an xbox one apparently want to play in 720P..

I'm sorry I couldn't help it...

BX81887d ago

I didn't click on the article. Did he confirm this game was 720p on XB1? Thanks.

gigoran887d ago

Who wants to play games in 720p? Xbone owners apparently hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahaha
