E3 10: Kojima Crashes Sony Blog Meetup, Brings Gifts

Tonight, as Microsoft packed the press into a small arena for an exclusive Kinect show, Sony was throwing its own party. A more... open party. The PlayStation Blog went big this year, bringing hundreds of fans into their event with promises of guests, prizes, and a good amount of swag. They did not disappoint. (Culture, Hideo Kojima, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker)

I wish I was there with my MGS collection to get it signed up by him
well maybe some other time

Yeah, PW is awesome! When the credits roll... the story mode is still not over. There's still another chapter but you'll have to do any Extra Ops to unlock it and complete ZEKE.

Am I just being overly critical
Or from your attached image, that sure as hell does not look like a 1:1 representation of what your avatar response to your movement or gesture.

If you look at the person's arm in the air from the elbow and compare it his avatar it leads to me to believe that either Kinetics is really laggy or not very accurate, or that the person was overly excited and kind of forgot about the script his supposed to stick to.
SOAD  +   1724d ago
Correct. The angles do not match up.
Godmars290  +   1724d ago
Likely recorded for the performance, not as any attempt at smoke and mirrors.

Not that people wont come to that conclusion...
beardpapa  +   1724d ago
maybe that guy is one of the cirque de soleil performers
morganfell  +   1724d ago
Thanks for starting off my morning with a bang. It's 430 and coffee just about shot out my nose with that last statement. That is worth a bubble.

wait....why wasn't kojima at the kinect unveiling? i thought he was a big supporter of it?

lol it keeps getting better.
ThatCanadianGuy  +   1724d ago
Kojima doesn't associate himself with failure.

Edit below: Oh blaze, you make it too easy for me..

^ wears the bitter frown of a disappointed man.

^ Meanwhile, smiling and posing with fans at the Sony Meet up.
Why do you think he left the natal thing? Failure makes Kojima sad :(

@ThatCanadianguy420 "Kojima doesn't associate himself with failure. "
Hmm? That's funny:



But he wasn't at the event right?


Did you even read the article? He was waiting to get in side. I dunno about you buy I don't go around smiling and cheesing waiting in lines.

Slammed with disagrees for providing facts? He was at the event - who gives a flying fuck. You're wrong you're wrong. You pick a photo of him waiting to get in like and say he was disappointed then chose a photo of him taking a PICTURE with a smile and say he was happy? it's a photo - you're supposed to smile!

This site's maturity level is atrocious.

He bounced, so he didn't fail. =D
OneSneakyMofo  +   1724d ago
Kojima was sitting next to CheapyD at the event. He was just lolling on the inside at Microsoft methinks.
Bellcross  +   1724d ago | Funny
He snucked out lol, after all he's the creator of the most popular stealth game for a reason lol.

"Why do you think he left the natal thing? Failure makes Kojima sad :( "

He left? Early or something? Or left because it was over? Got links that say that information to back up your statements like Blaze did or are you just posting random bullshit and getting your sony fanboy crew to hit agree for you?

You and dizzleK say he wasn't there then you say he actually was but was disappointed? rofl.
Dragun619  +   1724d ago

Yeah, But kojima probably left before the presentation even started. I mean, Itagaki left too as soon as he went inside.

Ask Rayn Geddes form IGN, He called it the highlight that evening.

Maybe they're just not interested in motion controls? That or Kojima Just has true Stealth abilities to go to both events at the same time.

lol canadian "Failure makes Kojima sad"
I agree blaze he clearly was at both events but disagrees and the truth walk hand in hand on N4G sometimes. But i gotta say this unveiling of Kinect seems uninteresting to alot of the people who formerly were excited for it.

Come on 420 in one pic he is bored to tears in line & the other he's posing for a pic.

+bubbles for the laughs tho
darkpower  +   1724d ago
No one is denying that he was there. That's not what anyone is saying. They said that he spent a few minutes there, thought better of it, and left before the mess was over. No one is saying that he was a no-show.
DaBadGuy  +   1724d ago
They should have rolled out a Kinetic box at the PSBlog party, boos all around. Then Kojima would pop out from under it and say, "I just flew in from the Kinetic event, and boy are my arms tired!" Lols all around.
morganfell  +   1724d ago
Even Itagaki was thinking, "Damn, this white poncho I wore is too conservative for the crap going on here."

Look, MS wants tight security. Got it. But when you show nothing that night, nothing to wet the appetitie then I have to say that you have very little juice. MS is going to promise a bunch of titles but I think Nat...er...Kinect is going to bomb. This doesn't look good.
BYE  +   1724d ago
He was probably bored, just like Itagaki and all the others.
Microsoft Xbox 360  +   1724d ago
A man like Kojima wouldn't be caught dead in that spaceponcho cult looking wardrobe.

So you're saying he just snuck into the event?
And no cardboard box in sight I wager...

Now you wish you would of went to this instead of the nata.. I mean the Kinect show.
jack_burt0n  +   1724d ago
I hope the guy who camped out for 2 days got his all access pass :) he deserves lots of free stuff!
Tony-A  +   1724d ago
Man, PSBlog is always giving away cool free stuff and now Kojima joins in? I want a Peace Walker PSP...
stonecold1  +   1724d ago

Hideo Kojima...
A change in the wind  +   1724d ago | Well said
If a small little Sony kickback can trump an entire Kinect showing, Microsoft better just pack their bags and head home.
Ravage27  +   1724d ago
you should have read the gameinformer report on Kinect...let's just say that things are NOT looking good for M$ right now
mrv321  +   1724d ago
Things are looking great, just listen to the press.... they are so excited and think it's so great they are making fun of.

I mean with hardcore games like Kinetimals and Kinetic Sports how can it fail?

Senden  +   1724d ago
After seeing the microsoft event thing, he probably proposed to sony literally.
Darkshader  +   1724d ago
SONY knows how to treat their fans!
Instead of Cirque du soleil entertaining me and do more hyping for kinect ... i rather choose tangible thing in my hand like a free PSP Metal Gear bundle pack and a free E3 ticket!

Jack Tretton: "I always make sure I can hear the fans I know the people I am addressing are the people that pay my wages without you there wouldn't be PlayStation."

I just wish Ken and Phil H would come back lol :( T4L
beardpapa  +   1724d ago
yea those lucky first 150 fans get to attend the entire E3 showfloor. THAT is pretty sweet and awesome. Not to mention chilling with Kojima himself, UC2 team, and Kevin Butler. Sony definitely knows how to treat their fans.

I can't wait for Peace Walker to arrive in Australia on the 18th! I'm going to upgrade from my PSP-1000 for it too...

To Go or not to Go? That is the question...

Maybe just a red PSP-3000 eek!
