You can expect Konami to patch that out.
ok i have nt played the game but this seems compeltely random ....Mercenaries s names have a starting letter SO what /??? and yes if they ill be placed with that order , yes it spells the name ...but why place them with that specific order ??? ...it seems very exagerated ....then we can just borrow letter from any point of the game and create messages ...idiotic
I don’t think you are smart enough to understand that it’s not just grabbing random letters. It literally says KJP FOREVER. In a very placed order.
The question is, is this a cerebral campaign (marketing). I think so for the record. Good job marketing department it went all the way up to number one on www.n4g.com for the record since at least yesterday. Which made me finally check today. If it is a cerebral campaign they will leave it in. If it is not they will take it out. Time will tell!
@naruga So basically you are telling us: "more along folks there is nothing to see here?" We think it is intended at the least it is a attempt to get attention or respect to a past employee.
They will also sack the dev team or the people responsible for putting that in
Oh I have no doubt.
Nah, they'll put it behind a $100 microtransaction. Which leads you to the next bit of the story.. which cost even more.
It says "Don't buy this game.".
Stop playing around, Vrabstin! You know it says, "Gotcha!"!
There are four suckers who disagree with you.
Lol I guess people disagree that you point out there are people who disagree with me.
I knew they were taking jabs at Kojima, those pricks are gonna milk one of the best video game franchises until it's dead. I hope this game sells like shittttttttt
The hidden message is "KJP Forever". Kojima Production Forever. Read first. Comment later.
Lool didn't see that coming xD love that little quote, good advice 👌 But still fu$k Konami
This comment screams N4G, so many of you lot make comments on headlines and not the actual article.
if you play it backwards it says "buy our dlc and microtransactions". Court case pending :)
Rumor has it that if you take a picture of one of the zombies in game, it snaps out of its stupor, grabs you by the shoulders, and starts screaming "Get out!" at you. But seriously, I think this is a genuine nod to Kojima Productions. They're known for subtlety and anagrams (Rat Patrol, anyone?). Whoever put this in there is probably going to lose their job. Kojima will probably scoop them up. They may have less money, but they also have far more freedom now. Ultimately, I think it was the best thing for Kojima's career.
Guaranteed Sony is making sure Kojima has all the funding he needs for Death Stranding
"You need a billion? here take it, you need new hummer, here you go. Hows the game coming along? Great great, here is an extra 4 billion for making the game"
subtenko, Emphasis on "need" lol
All your save are belong to us.
It's hey EA nice micro transactions hold my beer
Kojima, there are survivors yet to be fultoned, just another mission, right Boss?
Or it means Konami JaPan Forever..meaning they will be around for a while with their crappy practices..
There was a theory that the game would have a message that we would ultimately realize was a hint towards Deatg Stranding actually being MGS6.
It says Good riddance Kojima.
You mean Kojima saying "Good riddance Konami!"
I doubt it means anything at all.
Do you have to pay money to see the hidden message?
I wish there was a hidden code to give me my 39.99 back lol. I really knew better
Is the message "I got you"
Wow, that's so clever. Whoever did that, good job.
This does not repair what Konami did to HK. I really really hope that Death Stranding has a hidden message of its own in, something like "F-U-K".
You guys are missing the last two clues “Yota” a Japanese name means “good for nothing and “Yuji” means probable cause so Konami taking jabs at hideo for not releasing another game before them basically saying you good for nothing where is your game look we released another tittle without you
Shame, was hoping that the message read "this game sucks the sweat off a dead man's balls. Its that bad!".
The message was, don't buy this game because it's shit.
That's awesome blam Konami for making a bullshit game using all the tech from Metal Gear Solid V and it's nothing like a metal gear but they stamp the metal gear name on it to milk the franchise. Then the micro transactions....smdh
"Bastard Yota" and "Cunning Yuji" LMFAO
KJP FOREVER log live HIDEO!!!
Help Konami is keeping our family hostage
I think this is stupid, it literally misses a few words just to match the clickbait.
