Nvidia isn't playing around when it comes to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, branding the upcoming title as a Kojima Productions game without even a head nod to Konami.
Good on them. Gotta give credit where it's due.
Yeah but Nvidia is officially in Konami's black list as of now, since the hate on Kojima is quite real. I can already see AMD 'supported' Konami titles going forward...
Wait, there are AMD supported pachinko machines? http://gamersyndrome.com/20... (as the article mentions, sadly not a satire...)
I'm sure Nvidia is really worried that Konami won't port their mobile games to PC in the future.
@rdgneoz3 it goes well with all the anime/rpgs featuring teens in tight skirts and barely visible clothing, right?
I still see Hideo Kojima's name everywhere. Is this a real thing or some crazy publicity stunt? I really want to know what insanity is running through Konami's brain.
i doubt it matters since Konami will be exiting gaming at some point in favor of casino gaming
Ya know what? Screw Konami. Whatever they think or want, is irrelevant.
Konami burned and peed on the Kojima plant.
Damn it Nvidia, you're not making it easy for Konami to shift MGS into a quiet pachinko.
This whole thing still feels surreal. One has to wonder where Kojima might head off. Start his own studio? Join any number of studios that want him? Maybe venture into something other than games? Hmm...
I'm hoping he makes his own studio and supports all consoles and handhelds. Would be epic.
Probably start his own studio, and take his talents to a publisher who will be more than happy to give him the creative freedom he desires. Kojima and Del Toro are very much still in touch and while it wont be Silent Hills they seem to be working on something else.
Who cares, we all know it and that will be my last metal gear I'm not waiting years upon years after that, I'm getting old. =P
Good guy Nvidia
Yeah good guy Nvidia to throw it's name into the drama over a franchise it really never has nor ever did have anything to do with. How about they quit the fluff and actually say something about their horrible driver support for Windows 10. "Oh man we are getting flack for not being prepared, better hop on the bandwagon and support Kojima so it makes us look like we care" Oh and make sure we pump out more hair works to developers so we can cripple those with AMD cards! " we got your back Kojima but not gamers in general!" Disagree all you want haha, I just hope when the naysayers spend money on a card that costs more than a console that clearly doesn't work nearly as it's supposed to that you sit there beating your head on your desk wondering why you trusted this company. They purposely nerfed performance on old gpu's hoping more people would upgrade sooner and spend more money and lose out on the hidden performance they took away from a driver update. Keep supporting Nvidia guys, they truly are an honest company with nothing to hide "coff" 970 3.5gb coff"
That wasn't off topic at all. Every word you said was completely related to Kojima and Metal Gear. Applause.
all these flavors ...
I see I triggered a level of saltiness never seen before, sorry you got mad for a simple comment...
They have already released a handful of win 10 drivers. I havent had any issues and have seen an FPS increase in every single one of my games.
Wow.. So many disagrees. I can only imagine it's from the swarm of PC noobs who brought 970's and don't know any better since they've yet to use up their vram . I have a 980ti and totally agree with you. Nvidia are a greedy shadey bunch. They did in fact lie about 3.5 GB's.. Hence the class action lawsuit. They also gimped older Kepler cards by dropping decent driver support and overloading tessallation to make Maxwell appear like a knock out. If AMD manage to build a faster card I'll gladly support them.
Mad? I'm not mad lol, the only people who should be mad are the older Kepler users, and those of us waiting for a response from Nvidia on issues they seem to be dodging which they've been doing a lot of dodging lately. Keep supporting Nvidia tho, they sure like to push the industry foward....and then backwards so you pay more $$$$. Fools lol Praise a company like AMD whose performance is right with them with cheaper prices. Oh and they tried to squeeze more performance out of cards by developing a next Gen api called mantle which forced M$ hand to not be lazy and deliver a newer way more up to date dx12. Now that's a company...oh and they also released drivers to improve performance that Nvidia keeps trying to cripple with the crap proprietary systems they keep coming up with that no one really asked for. Devs can implement tools similar to hair works or any tech like that at their own leisure without having to go the cheap and easy route while screwing over a vast user base. Why are all these pc games broken on a $600+ card?? Hmmmmmm..... keep supporting Nvidia Fan boys and buy a box of tissues while your at it when your games run like utter garbage.
lol he's just trolling all.
if Microsoft is smart, they'll try to get Kojima to work for them. I wonder how much money could MS throw at him, haa haa.
Kojima wouldn't do that. He would never receive the freedom he wants from MS. I just hope he's going to continue in the gaming industry and finish Silent Hills (with a different name ofc)
Hideo Kojima's Japanese eccentric style would bode well on the Xbox platform
Oh snap I meant to type wouldn't
Yeah right, because japenese people just love xbox. If anything he would fly over to nintendo. He loves that shit yo!
That's about the worst fit I've ever heard. Sega Atlus, Sony, 3rd party, but for MS. Never happen.
Theres one more demo to go of motherbase...I wonder if we'll see a Kojima Production patch again
Your goddamn right
Live this team the credit they deserve
Whoa, talk about the LONG CON.
As in kojima is trolling??? If so i believe that as well
It would be his biggest prank on gamers yet.
Well they're speaking the truth.
Wish I could give a Bubble to Nvidia for this
This is so awesome of Nvidia!
Lol, what are the odds that this was a mistake and someone at nvidia is getting chewed out as you read this?
I get the feeling this whole "Kojima Productions" scandal is actually a PR stunt orchestrated by Kojima. This is the same guy who wrapped his face in bandages and pretended to be someone else when he announced the game. He's trolled people so many times to not believe this is just another trick. They should just put "Moby Dick Studios Production"
They simply calling a spade a spade.
Simple mistake. Once Konami catch on to it they'll have it removed. It by no means will be some sort of "outright" political statement by Nvidia.
Konami regardless of the problems they may have with Kojima should let that name stay there. Thats a Kojima game plain and simple. Letting Kojima go will be a mistake Konami will no recover from
Just an example how people are expected to pledge their allegiance to their job, but the company can throw you away like a pile or garbage with no remorse at any moment for any reason. Businesses have no feelings or morals, only secretive plans to boost profits.
Stop making a big deal about this really. Kojima will eventually form his own studio for another publisher and start cranking out MGS-ish games in no time. This split is probably exactly what he needed so he can be his own brand.
Im on a dilemma I want to support Kojima but not Konami, dunno if I should buy the game
Awww poor Konami's reputation just keeps getting worse. It looks like they either screwed up or just wanted Konami to crash & file for bankruptcy
Doing the right thing. Thanks Nvidia. Kojima is legend and I do not know MGS without him.
Thousands of successful businesses that make multimillion / multibillion dollar a year have done this . You'll see a successful businesses that earns hundreds of millions each year just suddenly fire someone that is responsible for the co success & the co. will lose money. They will allow the co. to lose money & file for bankruptcy. They will wait a few months or years , rehire person behind co. success & co. will restructure then be showing record profits . Konami / Kojima is one that we will NOT be see occur
Bravo to Nvidia I would do the same damn thing. This whole falling out between Kojima and Konami is one of the worst events to happen in gaming in a long time. That and Satoru Iwata's death and no I am not comparing the two just saying both have really upset me you can't compare a developer falling out with their publisher with one of gaming's biggest forces dying at such an early age R.I.P. Satoru-san. What I am saying however is that for a nation founded on the very prospect of respect and honor Konami has done the most dishonorable shaming of a man who is a very large part of why their corporation has even survived in the last 20 years. There is no explanation given of any kind to anyone and they have Kojima in some kind of clause where he can't even talk about it himself. There were so many very severe acts I considered doing to Konami that I never really got around to due to laziness (organizing protests (would only really make sense in Japan where I don't live) petitioning them or whatever. Thought of vandalizing any poster for MGS V I saw and adding Kojima's name to the artwork but I am not a vandal and my lack of skill at spraypainting probably wouldn't even be legible so I haven't. Going to have to suffice with public shaming of Konami going forward. I have many creative ways of doing so that really won't make sense until certain criteria have been met and by the time I get there it may be old news but as far as I am concerned Konami is dead to me. Metal Gear, DDR, Yugioh, and Castlevania were the only major games of theirs I played anyway. Really going to miss Castlevania but this blatant disregard for any semblance of respect for a visionary who pretty much saved your entire damn company with his series and you to just strip his name? I am a broken record about this and have been since it happened but ya Konami can screw off.
Still says kojima productions and a kojima game on Xbox market place
