So no Kojima, no del Toro and no Reedus but they are still plan to continue the series in the future? Do Konami not like making money or are they allergic to success? Either way, RIP Konami, you'll become irrelevant once MGS 5 is released.

Thing is Konami is a big company in Japan that sells many things, from washing machines to bottled water. The video game branch of Konami has not been cost effective. So its likely Konami is slashing that part of its company, they got tired of giving Kojima so much money for his projects. They could totally end their games division and still carry on as a successful company in Japan.

Well, good luck to them. Their gaming division wont be missed anyways. It has done its part. I'd rather they go down the drain, than milk the MGS franchise without Kojima.

They got tired of giving Kojima money? The only times when Konami posts actually good profit is when a Kojima game (MGS) is released.

HEY you dont make story they dont make washing machine and bottled water wtf are you saying and where tf are you getting those lol

bouzebbal1033d ago (Edited 1033d ago )

if you are thinking this

then no it's not a washing maching it's an arcade. well ok it's a washing machine :D i give you that.

and if you are thinking this
then no, it's nothing to do with bottled water made by Konami and delivered by old snake himself.

you got more agrees than disagrees...........fml

Crimzon1033d ago

If you look at a financial breakdown of where Konami makes money, you'd see that they actually make the most profit from video games. There's no way they're cutting back on that. I wouldn't be surprised if Konami wanted to pump out Metal Gear Solid games regularly and Kojima was fired because he wasn't willing to do that.

mogwaii1033d ago

You totally pulled that out of your arse! They do not make washing machines and bottled water, card games, slot machines/pokie machines and fitness clubs yes but the rest no.

Nevers0ft1033d ago

@mogwaii Agreed. They have their fingers in a few pies but it's all entertainment (mostly games) or fitness-based.

Blurmobjet1033d ago

No, seriously they're joking.
No. I mean they're a joke.

Hey now lets not get too hasty. Their Sound Voltex arcade games are pretty fantastic. Give them a few more years at least. I just got into it! :P

DarXyde1033d ago

Looking at what they're doing, I'm almost certain it's a budget thing. Refusing to deny it's not happening? Letting expensive directors and actors for said game go? They probably didn't want to spend the money. And the fact that no other series but Kojima's are affected.

Now I wonder if Metal Gear Solid V is releasing sooner than even Kojima wanted. It's really looking like a money thing and I'm guessing they couldn't afford Kojima's ambitions. I wish they'd just come out and say something. Outside of those titles, Contra and the old Castlevania are the only ones I care about from them, so it looks like they've lost my business.

rawrock1033d ago

They are not just a game company...

zep1033d ago

they dont make bottled waters and washing machine

Nevers0ft1033d ago

Unless you have some evidence to back up this claim you keep trotting out, I think you're confusing Konami with another company (dunno which). They only do entertainment and fitness clubs.

Baka-akaB1033d ago

Actually they have their current revenues from Fitness and slots machines and other ventures .

It's clear now that they dont even care about appeareances anymore and are basically shutting down most consoles games initiative , besides the obviously lucrative ones that they'll milk

InMyOpinion1033d ago

One of the most sad cancellations ever if true.

darren_poolies1033d ago

F*ck you Konami, just f*ck you.
