Konami isn't in financial trouble. They, as a company, don't even need the gaming industry.

They make more money each year on pachinko stuff and mobile than they do on console games. They won't be going bankrupt any time soon. It seems more like they're trying to get rid of the console section as it's a riskier area. With how much the games can cost these days they turn a big profit on a game, then they're taking a huge hit.

Hhmm being low on cash might some explain things but not why they removed Kojima`s name off the box art of MGS5, jeez his name is a brand seal of quality, he worked on it they paid him for it so why remove it ???

because he stepped on someones shoes. Its pretty obvious he pissed someone off up there

they're not low on money, they just want to make money fast.

Konami isn't going bankrupt. Like you said, Kojima`s name is a brand seal of quality. To take is his off the box art of MGS5 make it seems like a very serious issue.

This is my opinion....

It seem as though Konami have strict guidelines as far as their budgeting. So, Its possible Kojima went over the budget line by doing side projects that weren't part of the SH budget.

Konami were pissed about it. That's waht I think happened between them both. I could be wrong.

Make it a permanent PS4 exclusive, Sony will pay up.

JonnyBigBoss1366d ago

Worst idea I've heard today.

MasterCornholio1366d ago

Well if it's the only way to save it then why not?

It would just be another Bayonetta 2 case.

HeartlessGamer1366d ago

The game was only mentioned for ps4 they never mentioned any other platforms so it does make sense

More like someone hire these guys and make a new horror series.

You know, Sony has the Siren Franchise, its been dormant since Blood Curse, they could hire them to reboot that.

I just Think that Kojima should just open up his own studio after this mess is over.
