In a conversation between Sid Shuman and PlayStation 4 lead architect Mark Cerny about the PlayStation 4 Pro and its benefits, Cerny briefly talked about the Decima Engine and Kojima Productions’ game Death Stranding.
In the worse sense possible (that it's announced way too early and in development forever) it's a Kojima game too.
A little too early to say that it has been 'in development forever'. It was announced just a year ago, by the way.
Agreed! Forever = Duke Nukem; long time = Final Fantasy XV, Last Guardian, Breath of the Wild
Word, if anything.. the progress is staggering, very pleased, hoping for a PSX tease.
What was the point of announcing is last year if it was absent from E3 this year. People hyped up that E3 like it was the second coming.
@FarEastOrient, you forgot Tekken7 and Persona 5.
Maybe they announced it given the situation with Kojima and Konami at the time, and they wanted to let people know they supported Kojima? People were wondering what would come of him, and some thought maybe he'd go towards the more basic indie route like many devs who leave major studios, and we end up not hearing from them again, or those games are nowhere close to what people have come to expect from their major studio output. Given the timing, I think most people were aware that it'd be a while before the game released. In any case, what is too early? Why in recent years have gamers become upset that games are announced 2-3 years out? I understand if it was 5-10 years, but I don't think most of these games get announced with that kind of time frame expectation. "Too early" is only a byproduct of the console wars, and IMO, we as gamers, like game announcements. We like knowing what to look forward to. While we also get excited for announcements that will release soon, like say FO4, for the most part, we just want to know what's coming. For the vast majority, our curiosity is stronger than our inpatiance, and the vast majority don't care that a game is announced 2-3 years early.
He's not the only one that announces games very early...
"too early" ??? He was let go by Konami, he needed his team to find a home to build his next game. Why would he NOT SHOW CONTENT TO GET FUNDING? He can't afford to NOT SHOW his concept, he needs Sony to see the excitement and have the fans show they indeed want this. Sony made that deal with Kojima clearly because of that megaton trailer as its showing he has something and its worth investing in. Too early? Well you are not flipping the bill for this game, you are not funding it, you are not publishing it, this isn't your team. If its "too early" for you. Stop watching E3, stop watching anything, it might be "too early" for you =)
Damn I wanna see gameplay too <3...
Mark Cerny isnt the type of dude to measure a games hype, lol but ok. I wann hear what Shu thinks of it
He probably means the little attention to detail that Kojima games have, at least that's what I take from it.
I'd settle for a two second gif, ANYTHING! No other creator has me excited for a release, just about everything this man works on has become a gold mine of memories for me, PSX? Do itttttt.
He has a soothing voice.
Yeah he could do voices for meditation videos.
ASMR quality, one could say.
So basically great gameplay concepts and an absolutely bonkers and convoluted story. Sounds good to me.
Looks like the story will be crazy. Even some people involved can't understand what's going on in it. :P
Wait for TGS guys. We might get something then. Remember Sony still have some shows to announce games this year. Remember PSX last year. It was almost like E3 all over again.
I would have rather had P.T - Silent Hills - than Death Stranding, stupid Konami!.
hopefully we see it at tokyo game show in september and not psx in december
