Sony Computer Entertainment just published the English version of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Director Hideo Kojima's "Conversation with Creators" video, that was previously available only in Japanese, including some great looking gameplay.
We love him too! Now give me the game already.. Edit: Nothing about this video is new. In fact, it is gameplay from previous trailers and TGS demos.
I really like Metal Gear too and I'm glad he loves the PS4 like (almost) everybody else but should he really be saying things like this with a multi platform game? I wonder if this upsets the Xbox fans?
why would it upset xbox fans lol?
He's already been treating the Xbox like dirt on his shoe, this is just more evidence that points towards it.
His love for the PS4 doesn't upset Metal Gear Solid fans, so that's all that matters and if we look at sales its clear where 94% of the sales come from.
Im an Xbox guy and it kinda annoys me. I'm sure it's gonna an awesome game and all, but because he's been saying how much better ps4 is I've decided not to buy this game on my xb1. So yeah he's lost 1 customer and prolly many more, but I doubt he cares.
@ immorals I wouldn't say dirt but he gives me the impression that he isn't trying as hard on the xb1.
Kojima has always had a bias towards favoring the PlayStation brand. Hell, it's because of the PlayStation that the Metal Gear Solid series (not Metal Gear) took off -- so I can understand the origin of his bias. The only reason versions have been ported to other consoles is because of Konami. Even though Kojima is the creative director behind the series, Konami signs his paychecks, so when they tell him to release on Xbox & PlayStation he kind of HAS to release on both.
@hatsune: please leave the internet forever. you are an advertiser, not a gamer. your funny and childish ads makes all the good and true GAMERS look like dumb kids.
Anyone who uses the word "true gamer" looks dumb enough on his own. Gamers come in all shapes and sizes. Just because someone doesn't fit in your narrow view of how things should be doesn't make their point any less valid, it only weakens yours. I don't care for his post anymore than you do, but when you stoop down to a trolls level... that's right. You become a troll, yourself.
Well said bandit
@kickerz, you probably weren't going to buy it anyhow. This isn't a yearly release title (granted this is the prologue) like C.O.D. and most people purchasing these MGS games have either 1: loved and followed the story, or 2: loved and followed the story. To pass on this game, like you say you are with those reasons, narrows you down to the fact that you weren't going to support it anyway.
I am a huge fan of the MGS series and MG in general and even I thought about passing on it. I know that Kojima prefers the playstation brand over microsoft for obvious reasons but the fact that the xbox one version looks a little, and i use a little generously, is complete crap. Yes the one is by all accounts weaker then the PS4 but even so it should look a lot better then its 360 counterpart. All that shows to me is that he doesn't care enough to make it look better because he thinks PS4 is the best. I still plan on buying it because I love MGS but it is kind of annoying to see how little he tried. However, like i said, I know he likes the sony brand much more then microsoft. And I still respect Kojima because he makes great games. Passing on the reasons he did doesn't mean he wasn't going to support it. It just means that he is aggravated by what Kojima did and his only way of showing it is by NOT buying the game.
Yup what Vall guy said. I do wanna buy it, e3 trailer looked amazing but if he's not putting much effort into the One version I don't really wanna spend $80 in it. That's all.
Every time i see MGSV footage im left shocked at how good it looks. Its incredible and a sure sign of of what us console gamers have to look forward to in the future
In a stunning turn of events, Kojima confirmed that the Phantom Pain will also be 200x more expensive as Ground Zeros. Chaos ensued! Actually I'm excited that the game will be so long.
I think you mean expansive instead of expensive
Lol with that many bubble I wasn't expecting a troll lol
It wasn't trolling so stop using the word so callously.
Lol I was being silly. I can't wait for this game. I am a huge Metal Gear fan. You will know when I'm trolling.
nice he prefers PS4. looking forward to Ground Zeroes. EDIT: gameplay is old, please stop pretending that's new stuff. Question: is Phantom Pain coming to PS3? or is it only next gen?
I could have sworn they said Phantom Pain is next-gen only.
Why would the first part 'Ground zero' be available on ps3 then? Im pretty sure its out on ps3 and xbox360.
Because Ground Zeroes only exist to give people a taste of what to expect from Phantom Pain, and the bridge the gap between MGS4 -> MGS5. http://n4g.com/news/1449840...
Kojima always loves Playstation. If he had a choice, he would only work on playstation exclusive. Unfortunately, Konami controls everything.
I'm not going to check my blood sugar all day while I play nonstop.
If you a diabetic please do check your levels don't need another "video game session leads to mans death" article ;)
this guy never ages
I'm a huge fan of MGS, I've loved it since it was Nintendos baby, and followed it through PS when they rebooted it. But I have to say, him picking sides now is a really bad idea. He will regret it later. With a large amount of more demanding games running at higher res on XB1, (isn't the whole game less than 4gbs? that means you can fit the whole thing on RAM) it looks like he either intentionally downgraded the XB1 version, or his team simply isn't able to do better with an incomplete engine. There is only one other game this gen that has this large of a game between PS4 and XB1 as far as resolution is concerned, and that's Ghosts...which was a launch game, and is considered to be rather broken to many people. Either way, I'm hoping Phantom Pain will be good, and that he will take this extra time to actually make the game right.
Wtf are you talking about? Stop listening to misterx, please hop off that fantasy train and realise he is completely full of crap. His so called insiders are the voices in his head escaping from his fingers on his keyboard. With how much he's been wrong you figure people would pull their heads out of there arses.
Nope let them dream some more because MS apparently deliberately hid hardware from the industry just to one up Sony one day. Yep sounds legit /s. Devs are forced by Sony to make all games 1080p. /s Dice says hi btw. "(isn't the whole game less than 4gbs? that means you can fit the whole thing on RAM)" - Yh it doesn't work like that my friend. "With a large amount of more demanding games running at higher res on XB1." - Like what? Yep he simply gimped the XB1 version. Let's not forget the XB1 version has better textures, higher res is 60fps vs 30fps X360 version. Nope it's gimped completely. /s You do know the only reason PS4 has the realistic/non static sky system is because it has more overhead for GPGPU which it is using for the sky. Res difference can be told from what have seen so far. You would think people would accept it already after all the hints/face-offs we have had.
@corvusmd Lol, whatever you say..............
Lol MGS was never Nintendo baby it started on PS and that's where it blew up. So in other words PS is MGS daddy ;) OT:After watching about 5 minutes or so on the twitch live stream the other dday i say bring it.
It actually started on another console and was posted to Nintendo long before the ps1
Well, let's assume everyone is referring to the Metal Gear Series (MGS is Metal Gear Solid) Original two games on MSX2. NES version wasn't a straight port, it introduced several changes. No one thinks of it as a Hideo Kojima game (read it up). The second NES game was an unofficial sequel. MGS 1-5 released all on PlayStation consoles (some were released later on other systems as PC, XBox, Gamecube etc.) So calling it Nintendos baby is quite wrong imho... I'd say it is Kojimas baby.
Metal Gear Solid: Tactical Espionage Action started on Playstation, keyword Solid and the subtitle. It was Plain Metal Gear in 1987, it was first released on MSX home computers which Sony were also a Large manufacturer of the systems. Metal Gear and MGS aren't the same thing, Rising Revengeance isn't apart of the Solid brand either since it has a different subtitle and header. Furthermore SNES got a Metal Gear that wasn't even directed by Hideo Kojima it was sourced to a third party developer.
You are very delusional if you actually believe that he's downgraded the game on the XBO. This game is open world and runs at 60fps on both consoles, with amazing graphics. Just because the XBO can't handle 1080p with that, doesn't mean the team is 'bad'. I don't think you really know what you're talking about. No, the game can't run the frikin' game on RAM alone. You need to use the CPU, GPU, the whole works. And what the hell do you mean by 'more demanding games'? Ryse. Ha! The game is what some would call eye candy, but it runs at 900p, 30fps (which isn't a bad thing really, but it's dropping to it's teens) and it's linear.
Can someone tell me when does MGS5:PP take place? is it before or after MGS4? and do we play with Snake or one of his brothers? MGO online will be great to
Before MGS4. Before Metal Gear actually, if I remember correctly. Allegedly we play as Big Boss, but there are conspiracy theories regarding the real identity of the character, one of which I accept (at least, as of my last research into the matter, I accept it).
Considering the mission has you rescuing Paz and Chico, it takes place directly after Peace Walker, and you are most assuredly playing as Naked Snake, aka Big Boss.
@Lord Maim. Ground Zeroes is about Paz and Chico. The original question concerned Phantom Pain, and that's what I responded to.
Takes place way before mgs4. In fact takes place a few years after the events of peacemaker. I believe the time line is as follows MGS 3 snake eater MGS peace walker MGS ground zeroes MGS phantom pain MGS original Mgs2 sons of liberty MGS 4 guns of the Patriots There are the portable ops stuff as well but those are more spin offs I believe.
Don't forget the original Metal Gear games which takes place between Phantom Pain and Metal Gear Solid.
I don't own a PS4 (or live in the UK anymore) BUT users on NeoGAF are saying that Killzone Shadowfall is available (full version) for 0.85 pence.. glitch in the system. Any truth to that, or have Sony caught on and corrected it already.
Last I saw it was 85p. That was a few days ago.
I LOVE the theme song for the Phantom Pain! :)
Just 8 more days left!
?? You mean 5 days...
In North America.
come to daddy!
MGS is the only game i think should be PS4 only. Sony should of paid Konami for exclusivity, just like ms did with Titanfall.
**************Minor spoiler alert***************** ***************************** ********************* I already finished the game, I did the Ground Zeroes' mission in 1h39, i was really upset it was that short, but the Gameplay is sweet. It feels very strange at first, body animations are sometimes odd, and there is some glitchs here and there (PS3 version), but cqc never has been this awesome. After Ground zero's mission, there is 4 or 5 side missions which take place at the same map. The overall experience is awesome, but it's incredibly short, it's a demo not a game. PS: i miss Hayter's voice so bad.
If he loves the PS4 so much then bring over that exclusive xbox one Mission with Raiden in it over the the PS4 :)
i was a metal gear fan until i played metal gear 2 subsistence on the 1st xbox... i liked the actual game but once the cut-scenes became longer and longer it took me away from the game itself and i grew bored and irritated with it... i haven't played any others after that for fear they all were more or less riddled with long ass cut-scenes...anyhow, i'm willing to give it another chance with metal 5 but i'm not paying for this 2hr. demo.
Konami should make Sony Exclusives :D
Kojima let me give you some advice. When you plan on making a game multiplatform the key in more sales is to support both systems equally. By favouring 1 over the other is foolish and you have probably lost future Xbox owners purchases. No one wants to buy a game if your not putting the effort into it. If you don't care don't make it multiplatform.
The thing is, he doesn't really control which platform it goes on. Konami is making the bigger decisions, not him. Even then, the XBO version sales will probably be a lot lower than PS4 sales. Like most Japanese games.
It will most likely effect Konami with there XBO sales if the very guy who made it wants to be bias. Its common marketing sense and if I was Konami I would dislike him opening his mouth when there are employees who put in hard effort for both consoles versions.
The game looks horrible dont see it selling very well after seeing the pre order numbers on either platform.Titanfall is out also and it will overshadow any game that comes out in march
