It was confirmed last week that Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain will be showcased via stage presentation during the upcoming Tokyo Games Show.
so when is this game being released?
The very last sentence of the article gives you an answer... On topic, it's interesting to see Portable Ops being recognized as canon. Wonder what that means for characters like Python and Cunningham. Perhaps some appearance in The Phantom Pain? Kojima doesn't have much choice BUT to recognize it as canon; Gray Fox is Big Boss' most trusted lieutenant and without them having some relationship prior to The Phantom Pain doesn't really match the psychological profile of someone like Big Boss. Trust someone he meets during the course of the game when he's been screwed royally time and time again? Wouldn't make sense, especially following the events of Ground Zeroes. Can't wait to see more!
My super theory, is that release date will be revealed to us at TGS. Coming 1984=1894 TGS starts on 18.09.2014
would be kojima trolling at its best but i doubt that resellers would just let them do it ^^ maybe for a digital release but i shouldn't mess with my hopes and dreams like that.
Big_Boss88 - "Coming 1984=1894 TGS starts on 18.09.2014" actually 1894 would translate to 18.9.4 not 14. so 2004 means it came out 10 years ago.
Nothing yet unfortunately. I really hope it's a late 2014 title in December. Imagine how much it can sell as Dec has next to no games. But Q1 2015 is a more likely date.
Lets hope Kojima will finally give the date to us next week :)... almost waited two years for it >.<. I would cry tears of happiness lol if it come this year ;D ! Also I think he is maybe starting to work on Silent Hills soon, so 2 games might be too much of work even for the godlike Kojima.
So Portable Ops happen or not?!
YES! damn right to include portable ops in the timeline. i will always regard that game as cannon as anyone who played it knows how integral the story was to not only the idea/creation of outer heaven but the motivation that snake/big boss has for it.
I thought it was always canon. It was how Big Boss gained the funds to start MSF.
I hope PC version will be better in the way of graphics, because right now this game does not show true potential of Fox Engine
Phantom Pain has pretty good looking graphics. If you played ground zeroes you know how good it looked. But keep in mind that the Phantom Pain has an open world, whereas PT was a closed in hallway. I don't think Fox Engine will disappoint
Nice to see Portable Ops canon officially. Also that photo...Big Boss, Ocelot and Kaz all in the same scene oooh YEAH! The MSF suit looks awesome. In a way I'd like to not see anymore of the game, but I just know I can't skip TGS + TPP. 4 things I'm maybe wondering the most about TGS: 1. Will we get see release date? 2. What is the "Not Afghanistan" area they will show us. 3. Will we get to hear more great voice acting from Kiefer in the videos? Not sure when it is TGS, but maybe they will release separate English voice acting version. 4. Can I survive TPP presentation days alive, because of all the epicness might kill me lol. Watching from the edge of the TGS For the games to begin MGS fans draw their controllers form their ranks for The Phantom Pain I'm addicted I'm hyped I'm super excited inside...
I thought Kojima had said a while back that PO was canon. Glad to see it confirmed. The game had serious control issues but the story was solid. However Hot Coldman... idk just... Hot Coldman lol... what a name.
Gamingbolt, please make a fully functional movile website. Perhaps it works for some, however I am using google chrome on a samsung galaxy s3 and have never been able to see text when I am brought to your site.
It does that on my phone as well, sometimes refreshing the page fixes it. OT: glad to see portable ops officially recognized as canon
S4 Active on Chrome, same issue here. El Refreshing doesn't seem to help.
im soo confused
Portable ops was always canon. There are portable ops Ashley wood cutscene flashbacks in MGS4 during Big Mama's history lesson.
About damn time it is confirmed canon. I mean, seriously, how can a game which huge events happened and mentioned in Peace Walker not be considered canon? I hope Python is mentioned and/or alive in The Phantom Pain
Pay attention to his gear, looks like Jungle infiltration gear right?
