After More Than 10 Years, Hideo Kojima Reveals MGS 2 Easter Egg

I've seen videos of people playing songs like "Mary Had a Little Lamb" on those things. Hell, that old G4 show Cinematech showed a video of someone doing that. Did Kojima really think people wouldn't discover that?

yeah, pretty sure me and my older brothers figured that out as well...didn't realize it was a easter egg

What? I knew they had different tones, I just never considered that an easter egg.
Razmossis  +   658d ago
I wish he would release the full cutscene for Arsenal crashing into Manhattan. It was cut because of 9/11
Enigma_2099  +   658d ago
Yeah, because everyone that played that game specifically sought out those pans to shoot. Hell, that was the most important part of the demo![/sarcasm]
SpiralTear  +   658d ago
That's not the point. The point is that it's hard to consider that an "easter egg" when it's so easy to find, especially one worth "revealing" 10 years later.

I think it was cut at the writing level, where Kojima originally intended to direct such a scene, but never had the chance to do so due to the incident. I don't think there's a footage somewhere containing that said scene, as it never happened.
One_Eyed_Wizard  +   657d ago
Yeah, you're right. There's no actual footage except for that video of Karen Hojo reporting about the statue of liberty having been hit or something. And that one video contained real-world footage too.

EDIT: Never mind me. Thought you were talking about MGS4 for some reason.

Yeah they did have a different tone for each pan. I didn't consider this to be an easter egg though. I just thought it was cool and unintentional! This is REALLY cool to find out years later.
ANIALATOR136  +   658d ago
Everyone already knew about this. They even showed them in the making of DVD
incredibleMULK  +   658d ago
I rike Sony.
gigoran  +   658d ago
Seems you also like being racist. Good for you.
incredibleMULK  +   658d ago
Interesting observation. My wife is asian.
CrowbaitBob  +   658d ago
Do you also consider the word Gojirra to be racist?

I really wish idiots would stop throwing around the word racist as if it means "said something I don't like."

He made fun of an Asian stereotype. That is classified as racist. Defend him all you want cause all you are defending is a racist. Good for you all.
gigoran  +   657d ago
You are making fun of an Asian stereotype. That is classified as racist. Moan and defend yourself as much as you want, doesn't change the fact that what you said was 100% racist.
CrowbaitBob  +   657d ago
By that definition every comedian that has ever existed is 100% racist.

Read a dictionary.

rac·ism (rā′sĭz′əm)
1. The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.
2. Discrimination or prejudice based on race.

You can make fun of a stereotype without being racist. In fact, he may actually like the way some people prounce their "l"s and is merely providing a gentle ribbing. Equating this kind of silliness to the autrocities of true racism is ignorant. But go ahead, keep pounding your chest in defiance against the evils of weak jokes.
ObiWanaTokie  +   656d ago
well put crowbaitbob, well put. people like gigoran are the "radicals" that cast people off if the majority does as well. follow those sheep gigoran, you are a joke
Chrisgamerguy  +   658d ago
10 years from now he'll reveal that $40 was too much for ground zeroes lol
Welshy  +   658d ago
And how will you know that until it's in gamers hands? It's been near 6 years since I last got my MGS fix so he can name the price imo.

Plus, all this "2 hours long" crap, go boot up the HD collection and speed run the tanker and tell me how long it is in terms if story. I bet I could breeze the Tanker in 30-45 minutes easy.

But being the fanbase that we are, we explore the area we are given, shake down all the guards for tags and just generally f*ck around to see what fun we can have.

I bet I'll turn that Ground Zeroes "2 hours" into at least 8.

Jesus, all the hate for something that's not released and we don't know the true content of. *facepalm*
Skate-AK  +   658d ago
Well if you are talking speed run, they beat GZ in 5 minutes.
DCfan  +   658d ago
Comments like these is why im losing hope in this industry.
Batzi  +   658d ago
I totally agree with Welshy. There is no such thing as 1 playthrough in the Metal Gear series. I finished MGS4 15 times and I was discovering new things with each playthrough and that was a linear game.

I see your 8 Welshy and I raise you by 8 since I will be getting the japanese version as well. I couldn't careless about the price obviously. That $ doesn't justify the quality of the game. To me Metal Gear games are priceless.
elninels  +   658d ago
It was a joke dude, chill.
ObiWanaTokie  +   658d ago
Thats funny @Chrisgamerguy
elninels  +   658d ago
Obiwanatokie, great name.
e-p-ayeaH  +   658d ago
10+ year old news kojima
Baccra17  +   658d ago
This is what you call "look at my left hand instead of looking at my right." Take a lot more than this to ignore the horrendous pricing of GZ.
dcj0524  +   658d ago
Look at my left nut instead?
gigoran  +   658d ago
Speaking of horrendous prices... xbone

At least with GZ you're getting something worth the money.
chrono1205  +   658d ago
never knew that....always something new with MGS games....
WitWolfy  +   658d ago
Umm why bring this up now, misdirection perhaps?
moujahed  +   658d ago
Now if he took the time to implement this then during the PS2 era. What makes you think Hideo Kojima did not implement elements to make GZ hold us till, Phantom Pains?? People kill me sometimes.
memots  +   658d ago
Can't you see he is trolling again? Reveal Easter egg, that isn't really a easter egg ... Trolling Kojima style !

Maybe this in defense of Grounds zeros, as Easter eggs may be plentiful
