Metal Gear Solid 5 Confirmed On PC, And Why PC Gamers Should Be Excited

A quick look into the recent news that Metal Gear Solid 5 is coming to PC, and why PC gamers should be excited that previously high-profile, console-centric, AAA games are following suit. (gamescom, Hideo Kojima, Konami Digital Entertainment, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PC, Steam)

Most games on PC do NOT get mod support. As a long time PC gamer, I always wonder why I always see people bragging about Mods on this site.

What the hell would you even mod in a modern metal gear game?! ENBs would be pretty useless considering the engine is bound to already implement anything the ENB profiles could add to the game. so that Pretty much discounts graphics mods.

I doubt we can do anything to the actual gameplay without source code, or severe reverse engineering which would take years.

Seriously, what mods are you expecting to be made for this game?

That rant aside, I can't wait to get these games. I've played everything but these 2 and can't wait to enjoy them on my PC. No need to by another console.

I get it; be ironic if the game doesn't have a Linux port. If it doesn't it actually won't run on a steam box unless you dual boot.

It's good news for PC gamers, but I'm also hoping that any sort of exclusivity begins to wane. It does nothing for gamers other than cause trivial conflict. Yes, it may help the developers in terms of supply/demand (having a game only on one console may persuade people to buy that particular one), but trying to make gaming a unified sort of community in terms of the availability of games may go a long way.

This is just one step closer to the end of Exclusivity in gaming, the future is bright for one platform people and hope this will soon happen that games will be created for all so we all can enjoy them on our chosen platform !

Gamers are the ones that matter not games or platforms, peace all :D

This is fantastic news. This is just one more reason that I have to *not* pick up a PS4. All he has to do is bring the new Silent Hill over to PC, and I'll be set!

I was waiting for Hideo Kojima to confirm that,considering that he's originally a pc game developer.
