Hardcore Gamer: Sticking the current trend, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's box art will be missing a line.
I really have distaste towards Konami right now.
Use a custom box art insert and tweet the pic to konami. And if you, heaven forbid, trade the game in, leave your custom insert in place with Kojima placed however you want.
I will do that for sure, I will use the most prime glossy print paper :D
I'm going to go to all of the stores in my area with a labeling device and do this to every copy I can find.
Didn't click on the article yet so here's my prediction. Kojima sans name. Edit: Yep I was right. WTF Konami?
Konami's already a demon.
I really wanna boycott this game to spite Konami but this game is the sole reason I got a PS4 and I can barely wait any longer for this game to come out.
I did the same. But at this rate it feels like no money will go towards Kojima Productions. It's as if Konami wants to take full credit for the game as well as the profits. Fudge 'em I say! I'll get it second hand.
I was thinking about buying this game second hand, but i want to give a single sales digit to Kojimas swan song with MGS, just to make it look it succesful. That may sound weird. It's the next MGS game that Konami thinks it can pull off without Kojima where i boycott retailer buy. Maybe they realize how much they fucked up when MGS without Kojima sells half the amount as a real thing. Oh and maybe i'll buy a white marker and doodle like a 5 year old "A Hideo Kojima Game" to the cover. That'll show them! or not.
Best way to boycot and still play is to hold off a few days for some sap to return their game and buy it used. The store you buy it from gets the support instead of Konami :P
There's a typo in the article, "rebranding spree" should be changed to retarded spree*.
I will support MGS V for Kojima and his team, after that Konami can go and F#$# themselves.
I just know someone is going to create a template for the fans to replace the original cover
I agree with the comment in the web site. If they remove his name from the credits I want everyone who decided for his name to be removed get punched in the face very hard.
I really wonder what actually happened between them for this to become so bitter, why not just let MGS/kojima fans be happy and give credit where it's due?
I kinda doubt we will ever truly know maybe after September 1st but still unlikely. It's really up in the air from how long MGSV is taking and Kojima being made that Konami forced him to tear apart the game and sell Ground Zeroes separately, to Konami getting really made that Kojima finally putting down his foot about no more Metal Gears or just the budget for MGSV and Silent Hills being so high to Konami just being plain jealous that Kojima get more credit and is more famous than themselves. It could have also been mad that the quack head doctor kept threatening to sue because "his likeness" or whatever stupid fan that wasn't even remotely true. Something happened behind close doors for Konami to fire him and contract him out till the end of MSGV.
MGS4 didn't have his name on the cover either. Not a big deal.
When I buy this game SECOND HAND, I'll make sure I make a custom cover saying "A HIDEO KOJIMA GAME". Stop me if you can KONAMI.
I wonder if they would remove " A Kojima Production " or whatever it is , in the opening scene or even the boot up scene where developers and publishers names come up to tell you who made the game. Correct me if I'm wrong but they have to right ?
Wasn't this news like 2 months ago?
The dichotomy between boycott Konami so they cannot get a single penny from this, and play the game ASAP >.<
The last game I'll be buying from Konami I guess. Unfortunate that I can't give my money to Kojima instead.
Big whoop. He is long overdue for an ego adjustment anyway. He is like David Cage with a decent video game franchise, no humility at all.
Decent, lol. The MGS franchise has been one of the best video game experiences, not one game in the entire series is decent. Any main entry is a masterpiece. They rank among the best games of all time
http://www.forbes.com/sites... It's a shame so many people acting like children in response to all this, acting like they know what's happening and why, when most of you know nothing about Konami beyond console games. Console and Pc games are far superior in my opinion to mobile garbage and gambling machines but but Konami doesn't run it's BUSINESS based on my personal feelings unfortunately most of its market is in Japan and China. It's a business realigning its self to not go bankrupt instead of prioritizing something that isn't profitable and going bankrupt to keep the goodwill of a minority of its fans ,but according to comments on this they're retarded and demons? apparently, ok believe what you want
@escott No. You aren't going to do that. Nobody believes you are going to do that. (I would simply respond to you, but N4G, as always, has not idea what they are doing)
