Kikizo sits down for a rare discussion with the idolized creator of the Metal Gear Solid series, to reflect on MGS4 and find out what happens next for Kojima Productions.
Oh go away! Anyways, it's his birthday today! =) Happy birthday. And I think I speak for us all when most people who have the game hope that MGS4 gets many GOTY awards. That said, Mr. Kojima, when you go to TGS... UNVEIL ZONE OF THE ENDERS 3!
You're dumb, Kojima does not hate the 360, because MGS4 was specifically ONLY supposed to be on PS3. So it stays there, Thanks to Blu Ray. MGS2 Substance was on X Box, was there any hate there?
Bow down to him xbots, he is god.
Great interview.Kojima is a deep guy.He is 45 now but hopefully he still makes games for the next few years.It does'nt matter what consoles he works on because whatever game he makes,it will be gold. So he liked Mirror's Egde? An FPS under the direction of Kojima would be really great.
Funny at how he liked Mirrors Edge. The creators of the game did at once make fun of MGS4 in one of their Battlefield trailers.
It had to be in good fun, nothing insulting by it tbh.
MGS and Mirrors edge has something thats very similar, both games are unique in their own Genre. not only that, both games allow you to finish it without shooting a bullet as well.
He's such a humble dude. I like how his ideas are so ambitious that he has to wonder if they are possible even with all the current technology of today LOL. He is like a Mad Scientist or some ish.
seriously could he be more cool
Don't push it
Or what pp you'll cry?
Happy Birthday Mr Kojima
Happy Birthday wishes to Kojima are in order. I will follow suit, HAPPY BIRTHDAY KOJIMA SAN!!!
No i don't overhype games or developers also xbox360 games don't end up in a bargain bin within a week
??? MGS, in bargain bins? Never seen that. EDIT "the incredible commercial success of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, which has sold over four million copies" Sold half the amount of HALO 3 in less than 2 months, impressive.
You actually believed the MGS4 bargain bin article from Kotaku? LOL.
Well its true it was a flop in japan or china
Read above comment. MGS4 managed to push ps3 sales past Wii sales in Japan for 3 weeks, and was in top 10 charts for who know how long
Talking about a country that rather play Wii sports/Wii fit instead of real games. /not sarcasm.
Wow,he doesn't fancy motion controls a lot eh? Lol "I played Killzone 2 this morning, actually, and it was funny because the FPS control was traditional FPS, but when you come to a door and have to kind of open the latch, you all of a sudden have to use the Sixaxis, and nobody was succeeding. So maybe they were kind of rushing to implement the technical design, which might not be the correct way to do it in that title."
That's something that really stood out to me in the interview. It really conveys the message to me along with other points throughout the article that he notices and thinks about a bunch of things. Not just if it's a cool idea but is it being used in the right context and how it could be further approved upon. It's pretty cool to see how humble and down to earth he seems to be from reading the interview.
He didn't say he doesn't like motion controls he just doesn't think they're implemented properly or correctly in games. For Killzone 2 it's an intense traditional FPS (no motion control, hereby MC), so when the player comes to a door that requires them to use the MC it breaks the game up to such a degree that it could ruin the atmosphere of the game. I agree with him on that, forcing the MC functionality on players doesn't end well (E.G Lair), but good implementation and/or optional usage does (E.g Warhawk and Dark Sector). Of course if you can get to grips with the MC very easily and have no problem with it, the controls are never an issue, but some people (for whatever reason) can't get their head round it. P.S Happy Birthday!
"I want users to play and take back some feelings from my games. Snake is, of course, a hero, and it's a very, very rare that a [fictional] hero gets very old or ages - normally in games the hero doesn't age so much. However, I wanted to show that everything in the industry evolves: the games, the platforms, and even the users who used to play my games have all aged, and I wanted to express that in Old Snake. I wanted the users to almost overlap their experience - to say, "I aged, Snake aged" - I wanted to express this feeling in MGS4." Genius, pure Genius.
Chinamen wouldn't waste their time to spit on him.
Kojima is playing most of the huge upcoming titles. KOJIMA go play LBP!
"Kikizo: [Scans remaining discussion points, as time is running out]... well I know you won't give an answer to the Xbox 360 question... [everyone laughs]... so,"/hmm why did they laugh? People do that when they are hiding something
Yeah i noticed same thing, but if they didnt announce anything durring E3, i really doubt we will ever see 360 version of MGS4(lets say it was possible to handle which i doubt) and would anyone really care at that point? Who ever wanted to play MGS4 already did.
Happy birthday hideo-san :-). And secondly i have to say that am starting to get alot of admiration for him, and more importantly the way he thinks.
Happy Birthday Kojima!
..and hopefully many more! aaaaand maybe another MGS? Please? This guy is tops in the industry, hands down.
All he has to do now is make a Zone of the Enders 3 and I would consider him the greatest dev of all time.
tell us if trophies are coming or not so i can sell mgs4 already
you are awesome and i can't wait to see what your team has cooking (and please bring out a trophy patch)
to play Heavy Rain. It will help him with interactive storytelling! ^_^
