There's a very retro fan-made cover for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and you can download it now.
wow looks freaking awesome!! downloading right now!, will print on glossy paper put on MGS V take a picture and send right to Konami to whatever email I find lol. :D
Or just tweet them :)
What if microsoft got kojima to make an exclusive game for them. That more than any Halo or lame EA access would get me to buy an XBox one in a heart beat. I am very afraid for the state of MGS. Konami is trying to destroy my favorite gaming series since i can remember.
+sonarus Honestly I'd prefer if Kojima started a completely fresh IP that was multi-plat (PC included, now that the FOX Engine streamlines the process). I really love the MGS series, but I'd like for it to stop here, also MGSV is the perfect game to end the series on (albeit, it'd be amazing with a 'The Boss' spin-off). It'd be really sad to see MGS being milked further after this. I know Konami will probably do that, but I'll ignore those games and think of them as non-canon. The worst news ever for me would be that Kojima was restricted in any way, either creatively or otherwise, by a company who'll try to use him in a way so that he will be able to draw as many new potential buyers as possible as opposed to making a game he really has passion for.
* Stick it to Konami but buying MGS5 used. Buy it used. They don't get the profit then. You're not screwing over the employees that way, as they get their salary regardless. That person in charge of Konami....you want to get him back? Buy the game USED!
Yes, buy it used and show Konami the series is up for the killing because profit was low, let's make them think AAA games aren't worth the effort and time, let's push them into making MGS Pachinko or Mobile game. Genius idea. No :/ I want the series to continue (without Kojima it might be different, but there isn't a lot of stealth games anymore) so I urge you to support it.
@Bansai Supporting their behavior only encourages them to continue it. They already don't make games anymore. Seriously, besides this and pro evo game they're putting out, what else do they make anymore? They have a vault full of great gaming IPs and they're just sitting on them. I love MGS, too, but Konami is a shadow of who they once were and I, for one, cannot be okay with what they're doing. If they're going to just fart out cheap games and pachinko machines then it's best to just let them go or fire whoever is actually making these strange decisions. They seem to be more interested in making money in other ways so we have to let them go. Sad times for lifelong gamers. :(
I'm tempted but I want sales to reflect so Kojima will know that we bought his swan song. Just don't buy anymore metal gear games after.
buying a used game means someone has to buy the game new.
Completely agree with ReconHope. I'm buying it new. I know I'm giving Konami money but it's probably the last money they'll get from me.
okay. you can buy it off of me cause im getting it day 1.
@bansai, There would probably be support for the franchise if Konami wasn't well.....Konami. Regardless of who will get to produce the next MGS, they will still treat their creative staff with contempt and let's face it farm out the game to any development studio that will make it on the cheap like they did with Silent Hill. Let them make a shitty pachinko game, because they are probably going to do that anyway, because that is where they are making their money with gambling. P.T was highly praised and struck gold with gamers, yet they pulled the plug without a nothing explanation. Konami deserves all the BS they are getting. Kojima and his staff deserve much more. Getting the game second hand, seeing as Kojima Productions is basically no more after MGSV gets released with senior staff moving on, or at least I will buy the game on a sale. This is the same Konami that made my favourite and still favourite RPG, suikoden 2 that said they won't make RPGs because they don't know how to anymore, because their creative talents went else where or they got rid of them. They have no idea how to manage their gaming division.
what? how can we stick it to konami when we will buy the game for full price at launch? when will we as gaming community understand that if we want to make a true difference than we have to speak with out wallets fact of the matter is we are all talk. we will always buy our favorite games no matter how a developer or teared or how much a publisher is screwing the fans Atleast I admit it, I can't wait for a used copy. I will happily pay full price knowing this could be the final mgs game by kojima. a change of cover art on our own game box doesn't affect konami. but I will still download this and the other one with kojima all over for my own pleasure. whether we like Konami or not, they still funded mgs 5. I don't like what's going on over there as much as the next fan, but bottom line is 2e still don't know and we may never know what is truly or why is any of this happening
That is amazing. Bravo.
I already downloaded the one with Kojima labeled all over it.
Just have a box that says Hideo Kojima on it. That's what I want. Lol, but seriously this is pretty awesome. I just can't wait to finally play his last masterpiece.
You arent sticking it to anyone if you gave Konami your money already.
Well obviously people know that , they are only doing it tongue in cheek style ... and in a symbolic fashion , but adding back Kojima on the box
Thanks for the obvious perspective, Stringerbell. Someone call the fun police. Let's all wrap up here.
No one ever makes Xbox One versions of these custom covers.
Xbox guys don't pay Japanese games, silly. /jk
There's a cover for all versions: https://www.reddit.com/r/me...
Awesome. ^_^ It'd be great if the people who write these articles ever included that.
Thanks Yodacracker These are awesome. It will be interesting to see this game on store shelves when used copies are available with all the different covers.
A cover for Steam? lmao how can you put a cover on a digital game?
lol, this actually reminds me of some of the (beat-up) SNES boxes I used to have. *sigh* why did I throw some of them out...
Wicked! I bought a digital version, but have an empty PS4 case. Print it off anyway and file it in with my others!
Magnificent!!! This is really cool. This will be my official cover for the game. Edit : It's no longer available!! Dang it Konami!!!! Edit 2 : Quick search and I fought it!
"Edit 2 : Quick search and I fought it!" Did you win the fight?
My fingers pressed "found", the smartphone just put it "Fought".
I have an honest question because I can't find the origin on Google, but how did this start and why? The whole Kojima/Konami fiasco
This should help: http://www.ign.com/articles... It may not have all the info in detail but at least you will be up to date with all that happened.
Wow that is amazing, I think I gotta download it :). Never done a custom cover before, but the box art is just so 80's that I need it. VHS ftw!
This reminds me of the old school blade runner on vs cover color scheme and all
Why can't this be the cover ;_;
If anyone is having a hard time finding it: http://vgboxart.com/view/73... Still available at the moment.
Will also make a great T-Shirt. Konami will also like this idea LoL
Why didn't R* make something like this for Vice city???
Where does this artwork come from originally?
FINALLY the Xbox one gets its first AAA vhs tape. Now wheres the slot...
You want to stick it to Konami? Do like I'm doing. I've taken $60 and stuck it in an envelope. Written "for Hideo Kojima" in bold letters on it. Then tucked it away. When he gets away from Konami and starts up his own endeavor, I whip it out.
buy the game used if you really want to make your opinion felt by Konami...
It really sucks how boxart today has to be so restricted. Restricted in the sense that they all have to look uniformed and have the same colors and console logo on the top. It makes me miss the Atari and NES days. When you could have radical looking boxart that gave each game it's own personality.
Support Konami... buy MGSV used.
lol distributed by...you can barely read konami XD
I'd buy 5 of them if signed by kojima.
Konami going to have great game sales this year, with this and PES actually being decent this year.
