Konami says "the future is mobile" and they'll try to put their legendary IPs - like Metal Gear Solid - on mobile platforms. But don't cry just yet.
Any game going mobile is a terrible thing.
I have to agree with you even knowing there's big games on mobile, but the most successfuls not being connected with consoles at any point before.
Mobile games are crap and will always be crap without a good control scheme. A dev making mobile games is the equivalent of becoming a hooker.
I disagreed at first but then "no passion, only business" popped in my head.
Well it sure sounds like a terrible thing.
Don't drink the Konami Kool Aid
Didn't they already made a mobile game with mgs 4. Wait they did.
Doesn't N4G require you to label these types of articles with "Satire"?
Couldn't care less. Kojima is out, so am I. Good luck Konami.
It's not terrible, indeed. It's distastrous.
I’ll give credit to the author. "Might Not" is technically true. In theory, there is one out of a million chances it won't be terrible. However, in practice, it will be absolutely terrible. I’ll still buy MGS5 only because of Kojima, but Konami doesn’t deserve my money.
I don't mobile game. So yeah it's bad for me.
With Konami moving their business into the mobile market, I highly doubt I will follow since I rarely ever use my smartphones for gaming purposes. Sad really, I miss old Konami games.
For Metal Gear to be successful as a mobile genre, Konami would really have to push the envelope. But that is just it; Kojima has pushed and pushed with every title in the series. For Konami to bring the series, or a new series in the MG universe to the mobile platform, it just would not compare nor ever reach the ambitious scales we've seen Kojima reach with each new title in the series even as mobile hardware gets better. You can't just minimize the franchise to bring it to mobile gaming no matter what age your target audience is.
Putting MGS on mobiles is equivalent to putting action movies on mobiles instead of Blurays Dude, why do you want an immersive game on a platform that you use it on-the-go? Do you want to create an addictive game? Go ahead just don't use MGS name because it just won't fit.
I'm gettin sick and tired of "mobile gaming is the future" ... NO. NO IT IS NOT. If that's where they try to take gaming in the future. I'm afraid life as we know it will cease to exist!!! Except you kno everythingll keep going. But at what cost!! What cost!?!?
What a moron
