Lol nice comment. "Fine"

I have to see for myself whenever they show it.

thereapersson1374d ago

Yeah, noticed that as well. At least he's working hard at optimizing both versions.

KendrickLamar1374d ago

He's working hard on optimizing the PS4 version.
He's working "fine" on optimizing the Xbox One version.

Plasticgearsolid1374d ago

@kendrickLamar Not Kojima's fault he is limited by the performance of the xbox one.

Also tough luck at the grammys, got to admit R.A.M. is good

Melankolis1374d ago

@kendrick
Should be reversed,
He's working "fine" on optimizing the PS4 version.
He's working "hard" on optimizing the Xbox One version.

What could be better than "less work=max output"?

sinjonezp1374d ago

"Get Ground Zeroes on PS4, not XB1. Way better visuals, frame rate, everything… I believe @HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN said so himself."

Its saying something when its said to get the game on PS4, not the xb1. Could this end up being a issue for xb1 when buying multiplats? Even Kojima eluding to it as well? .Interesting.

BX811374d ago

The comments I read from Kojima make me believe he isn't doing his best to dev the xb1 version. They say every one has a price. I wonder if he feels like he sold out his loyal fans by deving for MS. Money talks but when you become ( disloyal) in your mind it's tough to deal with.

scootscottskeet931374d ago

Plastic and others... I really hope u realize that's not the real Kendrick. Of course the ps4 version is going to look better.

Gamer19821374d ago

Gotta love how Kojima is honest as they come with what he says. He was the one to let the world know he was happy to work on 360 last gen to upset ps3 fanboys and now he's telling people the xbone version is inferior. Of course Konami aren't gonna be happy with him but they can't exactly fire him..

morganfell1374d ago (Edited 1374d ago )

There are no doubts about the PS4 version being better while questions surface from attendees as regards the X1 version.

Lmao

I love how Kojima isn't sugar coating anything.
People ask him about comparisons and he just gives direct answers with no PR guy over his shoulder trying to get him to talk parity.

It's really funny.

Nero13141374d ago

If it was the other the way around people would hate him.

G20WLY1374d ago

^If it was the other way around it would be illogical and inexcusable.

Hercules1891374d ago

I thought he said both versions are about the same. Wouldnt blame him for hyping the PS4 version, PS fans need to be entitled for something right. Just look at how they treat them for going multiplat. Do Xbox fans get mad about Bungie going multiplat? Not that I know of.

RexLex1374d ago

Lol ,.. It is quite entertaining ,.. Love the honesty in people,.. I am sure both versions will look amazing,.. PS4 is just more powerful machine,.. so better IQ by default.

Edsword1374d ago (Edited 1374d ago )

I was wondering how he gets by with it, what with all the NDAs and all. I guess MS knows he'll go exclusive at the drop of a hat if they say anything. Kojima has always been a Sony guy, I know Metal Gear is multi-platform now, but MGS4 has PS3s and PS3 controllers lying around in the game. He's a brand guy for sure as Apple and Triumph (motorcycles for those of you who might not know) were also featured in the game. There might have been more but its been a while since I played it. Also, I guess the 'parity' argument just is not panning out this gen as expected. Last gen it was easy to hold back one platform a little to achieve parity, but this gen everyone and their brother would know the devs are gimping one version to do that.

The average n4g user is putting their hands in their pants now *unzip.*

;et me ask an important question though...how's the gameplay coming along?

hellzsupernova1374d ago

The gameplay looks fantastic from the demos we have seen

NeoTribe1374d ago

Its metal gear... Its got the gameplay.

come_bom1374d ago (Edited 1374d ago )

I've said and I'll say it again. Microsoft seriously fu**ed up with the X1. At this moment the difference (power, graphics) between the X1 and PS4 is just too big to ignore. It's inadmissible for a more expensive console.

One other thing is Kojima, everybody knows he's a Sony fanboy, and he, or his team, most likely didn't put too much effort on the X1 version.

Rockstar1374d ago

"One other thing is Kojima, everybody knows he's a Sony fanboy, and he, or his team, most likely didn't put too much effort on the X1 version."

That's a ridiculous statement.
Even if a dev has a favorite platform they're still going to make the best product they can on all platforms because it's ultimately all about the almighty dollar.

come_bom1374d ago (Edited 1374d ago )

@Rockstar

Humm... i guess you don't remember the PS3 early days, where multiplat games looked and played worse on the PS3 then the X360 version. Only after many complaints of PS3 gamers, multiplat developers start putting more effort on PS3 multiplat games.

Until now Kojima has been quite unprofessional for a 3rd party developer, in relation to this generation of consoles. Do you really think Kojima and his team put much effort on the X1 version of the game ? Kojima's recent comments make me believe otherwise.
In all honesty, if I had a X1, i would never purchase this game for it, just like i didn't purchase many PS3 multiplat games because they were the worse version. I don't support lazy developers.

lelo2play1374d ago

95% of the time, Kojima speaks about the PS4 and the PS4 version of the game. It seems to me that he doesn't give much thought about other console versions.

Maybe somebody should tell Kojima that there are other console versions of the game beside the PS4. Apparently he doesn't know that.

Ron_Danger1374d ago (Edited 1374d ago )

So the new excuse is Kijoma is a Sony fanboy and that's why it looks better on PS4.... How many excuses are we going to see this gen from the MS fanboys that help them justify why multiplats look worse on the XB1?

So with your logic, all the crystal dynamics devs are Sony fanboys because of how Tomb Raider turned out? Or the CoD devs or the Battlefield devs? How about Ubisoft with AC:BF? Looks like all devs are Sony fanboys with your logic.

You're right... All devs are Sony fanboys... Has nothing to do with the XB1's lower specs

Edit: I reread your comment a few times and although your wording doesn't exactly make you sound like a fanboy, your calling Kijoma a fanboy is exactly the type of reasoning that fanboys use/ will use in the future.

Are you really , going to sit there and try to claim Kojima is not trying to put in as much effort into the xboxone as he is the PS4?

I mean really?

Look Kojima's work ethic is well known to really, push what ever platform he works on he does not go about and try to gimp one ver over the other, that is not how he has been in the past and i doubt very much , that is how he is today. Kojima is a perfectionist. and his work shows it!

That's like Telling John Carmack last generation he was being a fanboy about how hard it was to get better results on the PS3 over the xbox360.

John was not sugar coating it, and i very much doubt Kojima is also niot sugar coating it. when he say's fine, Kojima's fine is pretty [email protected] High in quality you can take that to the bank!

I would take his claim of "fine" to be pretty [email protected] good, the fact that he states that the PS4 is a better hardware platform, is i doubt being lip service to one company over the other, its based on his experience with both platforms.

Kojima would have even wanted to put Metal Gear solid 4 on the xbox360, but he also gave reasons why it was not put on the xbox360. All last cycle many gamer's claimed , well he could cut out all those cut scene's and make it a game, but that's not the point, yes he could do that but it would not have been Metal Gear solid 4 than would it?

Kojima is straight up when he does interviews, many time he shows up at events for Microsoft just as much if not more than he does for Sony. So saying he is not putting in that much effort in on the xboxone, is saying that kojima "cutting corners" on his development on the microsoft xboxone platform is very doubtful, because kojima is or has never been known to on any metal gear project he works on have been known to be

"cutting corners"

With Metal Gear as a franchise! its his baby @ Konami
Hell its his creation, and he does not like it when its not up to his standards.

When he said one of his games are coming along "fine"
HE MEANS IT!

Utalkin2me1374d ago

This is going to be a common trend.

S2Killinit1374d ago

Metal Gear is meant to be played on a playstation anyway

FamilyGuy1374d ago

So true, I'm surprised this isn't exclusive but business is about making money.

SmielmaN1373d ago

Agreed. Well, Nintendo too as it debuted with them. Hideo is prob working on the PS4 version and has a separate team just porting it over xbone. I will be buying both new games, no matter the cost or duration.

DragonKnight1374d ago

It's like MGSV on the Xbox One is one of those women comedians always use in jokes.

Journalist to MGSV through bathroom door: "How you looking today sweetie?"

MGSV looking in mirror with sulking face: FINE ALRIGHT?! I LOOK FINE!

MasterCornholio1374d ago

MGSV Ground Zeros: Fine Edition

Exclusive on Xbox One.
