Of course Phantom Pain is from Hideo. We all know this!

Hideo Kojima THE BEST

GamerSciz2564d ago

Ugh, they asked like two questions about Phantom Pain and they were two vague questions. Otherwise a good interview.

TheOneEyedHound2564d ago

So let me get this straight.

Ground Zeros = Phantom Pain?

Mounce2564d ago

But it was already known that Ground Zeroes is a Prequel to MGS5.....and Phantom Pain has the easter-egg part where MGS5 fits above 'The Phantom Pain'...

So, shouldn't it be obvious that The Phantom Pain is a sequel to Ground Zeroes if Phantom Pain is indeed MGS5? Ground Zeroes isn't 5 and is a sequel of Peacewalker and a Prequel to MGS5 :L

It says Metal Gear Solid V. That's doesn't mean it's a 5 though. The MGS series has never used roman numerals before, so while it *could* be a 5, it's much more likely that the V is actually a letter. I'm pretty sure that it stands for Vita. The whale tail in the MDS logo is a reference to a place in the world called "The Whale Tail of Uvita". It's on the coast of Costa Rica, the setting of Peace Walker. That can't just be a coincidence, this is Kojima we're talking about.

So you're saying that the likeliness of Phantom Pain being a Vita game is more apparent than roman numerals hinting at it being MGS5?

I mean, we're talking about not the official MGS5 title, V could still be 5 just not be used as 5 to make it blatantly obvious, no? :l

V for Vita or V for Vendetta or V for 5, it can be anything that could stand for V, just what can't be refused is that it is MGS related somehow....the only thing I know that's the dumbest thing I've heard theorized is that it's Liquid Snake somehow, makes me facepalm pretty hard....Big Boss or Solidus for me, Solidus should have pretty decent room for a standalone game.

I actually like Prokchops' thought. Kojima never seems to tease in any straight forward way. I wouldn't be surprised Prokchop turns out to be 100% right on that. Why would he tease MGS5 when he's trying to get people excited for Ground Zeros?

@ porkChop

Nice observations. Would be cool if true. Plausible.

I think so. It's because Phantom Pain is probably Big Boss's reminder of something about the Boss in someway, or maybe even Solid Snake, but bottomline, it does seem to have a huge connection with the MGS storyline.

gninja922563d ago

maybe the cripple who looks like sanke in the phantom pain is big boss as he is being revived at the end of MGS4 remember at the end of 4 he said he was put back together with pieces of solidus and some other ppl the pirate arm can be a temporary one until something happens and he gets the prmanent one. anyway would be cool if the PP was a MGS5 with big boss and it were a sequel to MGS4 chronologically.

LAWSON722564d ago

Come on quit teasing... we all know phantom pain has some thing to do with mgs

Eamon2564d ago

From the way Kojima was nervously responding to two vague questions on The Phantom Pain - it's 100% confirmed now he's behind it.

If he had nothing to do with it, he would have made it clear. But instead he was laughing and answering 'innocently.'

So now the real question is whether it's MGS5 or Ground Zeroes...

Murad2564d ago

I think it's Ground Zeroes. Didn't it say in an article somewhere that Ground Zeroes was first than MGS5, or something?

WeskerChildReborned2564d ago

Not 100% but i would guess that this game is most likely from Hideo.
