Kojima Productions is hiring for "Next Generation Metal Gear Solid Series Production Staff". The programming category asks for people with experience on "PC/PS3/Xbox360".
hell yes! whether its mgs5 or an original game im extremely excited to see something. honestly though im hoping for mgs5 on the ps3. im currently still playing mgs4 trying to get all those ridiculous emblems.
Oh my gawd metal geeeeeeeeeeear !!!
If it's next gen it won't be on ps3.
It could mean "next-gen" as in PS4. Or the next generation of Metal Gear games...
could also be mgs collection
Could be PSP2 or 3DS. Technically, it WOULD be "next gen" And handheld hardware could potentially take closer to Console-level coding/programming skills to program for. However, it could easily just mean the next gen of the MGS series as in a reboot/spin off/etc.
Hhaha nice one emek!
Doesnt seem like it, they are asking for people with 360 experience as well. Hmmmmm who knows hopefully it is a PS3 exclusive!
exclusive or not, i just want game that play well as metal gear does. my favorite is still MGS3, so if ps2 is able to do it... i'm game and if they fix the online box glitch... they hooked me. two things that turned me off the online were not being able to turn of voice/chat/voting forever and people who were boxing/unboxing constantly. kojima please, give slower box (3-4 seconds) animation where headshot actually works and let my soldier climb faster than my grandma with arthritis
This is amazing news especially if its ps3 exclusive.
Bring it on :D
@ all 3 of you He needs a programmer who has experience with pc,ps3,and 360. Meaning the newer mgs series will be multiplatformed.
no not true. most developers hire for all platforms whether the game is an exclusive or not. to limit yourself to a team who has only worked with 1 platform is not necessarily the ideal way to go. you can have fantastic programmers regardless as it doesn't require someone with only ps3 experience so we'll have to wait and see.
What Christheredhead said is true. They just want someone who has worked on a team and knows how the pipeline and schedule works for making games. The only difference coding for PC & Xbox 360 vs PlayStation 3 is that MS systems use the DirectX Code library while PS3 is OpenGL. Both use the C languages (C# and C++) how ever DirectX doesn't give you much control over memory management as OpenGL can. This is why games on PS3 look and play great. Its because they can alocate memory to whats important than doing useless things on the back end. So really a Xbox 360 coder can code for the PS3 too. They would only need to change up their coding style a little bit to work with the OpenGL nature of the PS3.
ok i agree with you both, however if its a new mgs game it could be a backstory game in story wise aka a spin-off. If its exclusive itll be either the death of solid snake and if he had any kids they would live on his legacy of tactical espionage action.
MGS5. The ones who said that it will be multiplat because they are hiring PS3/360/Wii experienced devs, by your logic Uncharted 3 is going multiplat. They are only hiring programmers who are experienced with next-gen consoles. We cannot say if this new MGS will still be exclusive or multiplat.
Since when were the 360 and wii "next-gen?"
OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ! im a die hard mgs fan. im actually playing mgs4 again just for the hell of it and its like im reciting all the lines to the cutscenes with how many times ive played and how into it i am. im super stoked! i just ask for it to be a continuation of the actual mg series and let it be for ps3 only
I hope it actually has meaningful gameplay this time. MGS4 single player was a joke and a insult to me personally. I don't care what nobody says, ghe single player was 70% cutscene 30% gameplay. online is underrated though.
didn't u realize mgs4 was solid snakes final mission he wont be in future mgs games ever theres going to be a new person as a lead. so mgs4 included some gameplay but it was more about storytelling a franchised hero's last mission.
@ at Lircky Act 1 and 2- make ur way from one end to the other. Interacting with enemies was optional. Act 3. Follow a guy for awhile, Bike chase, Raven boss battle Act 4-5 was a few action sequences including boss battles and thats it. and between athat was endless cutscenes.
wow just wow @nevin1
Even if the cutscenes were long, the gameplay was worth it. Few stealth games around anyway.
Snake!? Snaaaaaaaakkkkeeeeee!? Good times, roll on the next one!
Why does this article say Next-Gen? At the present time Next-Gen means PS4 or XB720 it should have said Current-Gen
Yeah thats one thing that bugs me, the PS3/360/Wii IS the current gen, the PS4/Xbox 3/Wii 2 is next-gen, and thats what I thought they meant when I read the title.
That gets on my nerves too. I also can't stand when people write Final Fantasy 13 versus, it doesn't even look right.
MGS5 would be HUGEEEE!!!
Ok first of all it's not "Kojima" who is hiring, it's Kojima Productions. Therefore, we don't know if the next MGS presumably MGS5 is going to be "A HIDEO KOJIMA GAME" or it's another "game" from Kojima Productions. There is a big difference between KP game and Hideo Kojima Game and Kojima explained that the difference is huge and I believe him. Thus, we need to wait until more info about that "next" MGS come out until we can confirm anything. For now, all we know is that they're recruiting programmers for the next MGS project. Now Kojima did state that he would most likely do MGS5 in the end since it's the wisest choice taking into account the huge fan base that the franchise has. Anyway, it's always amazing to know that another MGS is coming no matter what platform is getting it. In the end, it's the game designer's and the development team's job to make sure that the game turns out great and not based on what platform it goes on. I have faith in Kojima and I am sure most of you do. Kojima and Metal Gear FTW!!
Kojima productions is run by Kojima so it's like saying the same thing anyway.
We'll have to wait and see how Rising turns out then we'll decide.
Sweet, and too everyone wanting it to be exclusive...i doubt that will happen unless MGSR completely bombs on 360/PC. Konami doesn't really have a lot of really well selling franchises so they'll try to maximize profits anyway they can. I just hope Kojima is still going to be involved heavily with MGS because once he's done with the series I have a feeling i will be to.
This BETTER stay PSP Exclusive
yea but they clearly stated that they wanted programmers for PC/PS3/Xbox360.
Awesome but prepare for the shitstorm if it is indeed multiplat
It doesn't bother me as long as it's on PS3 and we know that is very likely. I could go ahead and mention that if it's multiplatform, it won't be the game it could be when catering exclusively for the PS3 specification: Blu-ray etc, but that would be wasting my time, on this site.
ouch what?never heard of multiplat titles before.
Don't bother. He's one of the most worthless trolls on this site. His comment history shows enough.
@ NYC lmao! Good one. Most days you would think by reading the comments that multiplat titles don't exist. It's a good thing this site only represents a very small percentage of gamers.
No metal Gear until Next Gen:(
Well they said next generation and then asked for exp on PC/360/PS3 so I am going to have to say no.
So instead of working on a new Zone of the Enders, which is much more in need of a sequel, and what the team WANTS to work on, we see Konami probably pressured them into making yet another unnecessary Metal Gear. Not excited in any way.
If it is a new MGS, I hope it doesn't involve Snake especially after the events of MGS4. The ending was perfect, a masterpiece. Same goes for Big Boss. It would be great if it was another story starting. I know that Raiden is getting his shot, maybe a game with Raiden's son? perhaps? yes? no? Or maybe a Female protaganist? Make use of that Sixaxis again yes? ;) Edit: Like "The Boss"?
If MGS5 does come out its most likely to come out on a next gen system like the PS4 and if its not MGS5 then maybe a remake of MGS1 good times :).
i don't care if it goes multiplat, AS LONG as they develop it for the PS3 first then port it
But Snake is already an old man. How will this play out? Will he be in a wheel chair beating people with an oxygen tank? None the less, I would still play it. Regardless what goes down in the story. It better be about Snake again. A Metal Gear with out Snake just aint right. But at the same time, im a huge ZOE fan. ZOE3 and my head would explode.
Would love to work in a project like this
i would like to see some more gameplay now instead of most of the game being a movie. Don't get me wrong....mgs4 was awesome....it was very painful to see snake put the gun in the his mouth and pull the trigger in the end....and the end scene with sunny talking with otacon was also pretty sad.....but the game needed about 5 hours of extra gameplay for sure
MGS NES current gen remake please.
MGO2 is the best online game currently out there. I can only hope at this point in time that Hideo decides to make an MGO3, and this time not be a racist asshole, and give all regions the latest updates.
Please no MG5 let it be a new IP MG series ended perfectly IMO please dont screw it up
