Rumor has it that Ryan Payton, late of Kojima Productions, has landed a pretty impressive job here in the states.
of working with kojima can only enhance the future halo experience, this is good news for halo fans
Ryan Payton = Assistant producer. Hideo Kojima produced and directed MGS4. Ryan Payton hardly did anything for MGS4. All he did was help with the controls.
no matter how limited his time was spent with kojima(controls are very important they can make and break a game,just ask lair) just working in a team that made one of the best games ever can only benefit you as a developer
lol @downplaying ryan paytons role because he wants to work on halo haha The reality of the situation is MGS4 wouldn't have been as awesome especially controls wise if it wasn't for him. He was a very valued asset to kojima productions. He was that american giving them that western influence. His impact working on Halo will be minimal though but expect fanboys to blow this out of proportion. Halo doesn't need any more western developers...now if they got hideo kojima to make halo:o
Ryan Payton played a good role on MGS4, especially in the controles department and was being praised in these same comments sections just months ago. As Jamies said, it can only be good for the Halo franchise and it`s fans. If this rumor comes to be true. Some people`s true colors really shine with certain stories,, even in the gamer zone. Right Rick?
Ryan basically tried to make MGS4 a little more westernised, so the western audience liked the game a little more. Hence why the controls were much more simplified and easier than any previous MGS (although I would have been fine with the normal controls, some people couldn't handle the controlling in the previous games).
i dunno but that cover system in mgs4 was a complete pile of craap. its really apparent in online when you take cover and by the time you actually shoot the enemy is already behind you. its just slow as hell.
Such a hypocritical comment Rick. So Ryan's the enemy now? You're hilarious, please grow up and get past that immature mentality.
That cover was designed for snake. Its especially useful when you have your octo camo suit on so you can peek around a corner with your stealth percentage intact. Playing online don't use that cover system. But if you are playing online as snake then use it
Nice to hear, the will make Halo more appealing to the Wast or to the East?....I don't think Halo had problems with the controls...there's no much he can improve reg. Halo in the West...what Halo needs is a Kojima...all the opposite to what MGS4 needed...it just needed Ryan to help out with the localization in the West...MGS4 is as awesome as MGS3 for fans...but non-fans that loved MGS4 would hardly enjoy MGS3... By the way, Rick has a point
I personally didn't like Halo 3. Not my cup of tea I gueess. Not calling it a bad game, since everyone and their momma is still playing it. If Payton truly is helping out, maybe I might check out the next one. Though I agree, it's not Hideo on Halo 3.
can't wait............HALO f**k yeah!
Yea baby!!!! Halo 4 is coming!!! It's going to be CRAZY!!!
Halo: Metal Gear Chief :)
I think Ryan helped with the gameplay overall; not just the controls. And if this is true then great move by Bungie. At 199.99, I was thinking about picking up a 360 but I'll wait until I'm sure Halo 4 isn't going to be for the next Xbox.
Nice work! Good understanding. It makes sense that if this guy worked around Kojima for a while that he would be able to pick up on some of the things that Kojima did to make his games so great, and those skills could also be used in other games! Good positive comment... I was beginning to think you were a fanboy... I'm glad to see you're not!
Maybe now the Halo series will actually be worth a playthrough.
Payton's cashing in on his MGS4 fame.... but he won't change Halo 4 much (unless he acutally programs). To me, its like if Jade Raymond decided to produce for Halo. Won't make much of a difference. Payton just dealt with localization, and making things more "Western".
never liked him, so doesn't bother me either way since I dont own a 360
you mean your jealous
you mean you're jealous?
why so jealous?
HAHAHA PS3 fanboys are always jealous. PS3 is so inferior.
Wow MS is really recruiting an all star dev team for this new Halo game, all whats left is someone from the nintendo camp to join and your guarenteed a AAA game
They already said they wanted Miyamoto...(or his hames at least, around the same time they said they wanted Final fantasy on the 360! I wonder if MS will try to pick up Itagaki or will he just open up his own studio? People don't give him enough credit!
i dont want anything to do with nintendo rasta. they will just load halo with a bunch of mini games and halo 4 will be rated E, for 3 and older lol
MS are done with AAA titles...They hiring all the big names in the industry. Now here comes the AAAA titles. A new age has begun.
Are a true winner at life.
lol best comment i have read in a long time.
lol.I guess you're talking to me? since you know..xbots don't insult fellow xbots.Its against the oath you take before you ride microsofts c0ck Anywho,i find it hilarious that you all go nuts over a RUMOR from KOTAKU.But whatever.You kids have fun. lol icewake,aren't you the guy who has a man crush on cliffyb?
I am fairly positive he was refering to patchstation 3`s comment.
BETRAYALTON MEGABOMB!!11!!FTW!! GET MILKED NOOBZ!!11!! ok ok had to say it sorry
Halo is complete garbage for dumb [email protected] who buy microcock$ products.
At least he'll get a good salary regardless of the final product
this will be really good for the halo franchise, can't wait to see what he comes up with
Not saying he didn't do much for MGS4, but his job at Kojima was to make a Japanese game more accessible to the Western audience. What the hell good is that gonna do for Halo?
to make Halo more accessible to Eastern audiences?
He got to assist in overseeing the entire MGS 4 project, which also means while he was looking for ways for the game to be attractive to americans... he also learned what attracts the japanese!
I'm looking forward to the damage control in this thread. I'm happy for the guy but you know that some of the crazies on here are going to take this as some kind of personal insult.
like some fanboy threatening to kill himself because he feels this is a betrayal against sony.
Please don't turn Halo into an interactive movie.
[[lol your next]]
well guess i won't be buying halo 4. please keep the movies/games to the ps3. i like playing my games. not watching them
hahahah Asianstation PS3 is sooooooo gay.
We wish you all the best Mr.Ryan Payton,Hideo Kojima delivered a Masterpiece with Metal Gear Solid 4,therefore I'm positive the Experience has affected your Life in both an Emotional and Psychological way Please remember that you are indeed working for Microsoft,thus you should have a Back-Up Plan at All Times.
best wishes to him
In order to Honor the Work Mr.Hideo Kojima and his Japanese Team did in Metal Gear Solid 4,I will provide Old Snakes Phenomenal Opening Passage: "War has changed. It's not about nations, or ideologies. It's not even about profit, resources, or ethnicity. It's an endless series of proxy battles, fought by mercenaries and machines. War, and its vast consumption of human life, has become a rational, well-oiled business transaction. War has changed. ID-tagged soldiers carry ID-tagged weapons, use ID-tagged gear. Nanomachines inside their bodies enhance and regulate their actions. Genetic control.. Information control.. Emotion control.. Battlefield control. Everything is monitored, and kept under control. War has changed. The age of deterrence is now the age of control, averting catastrophe from weapons of mass destruction. And he who controls the battlefield, controls history. War has changed. When the battlefield is under total control, war becomes routine. " -Old Snake,Metal Gear Solid 4:Guns of the Patriots,AAAA Playstation 3 Exclusive
Please give that Snake line a rest
Thank you Hideo Kojima for Delivering a Once in a Lifetime Experience with Metal Gear Solid 4,now we await Insomniac Games to provide the next big Exclusive First Person Shooter,Resistance 2.
you are sad .... you don't know how desparate you sound right now. YOu have to thank Hideo Kojima 3 posts in a row?That is just sounding desparate like you feel threatened
He has to post his nonsense to make himself feel secure and not threatened of the fact that one of the guy who made MGS4 is now working for Microsoft.
he always post consecutively in the same article good or bad he is a troll... ;-)
Halo Chronicles is gonna be off the chain Doug!
it can only be a good thing for halo
Or that it ends up only selling below 3 million copies like MGS4.
......................NOT;) and it took you ten plus hours to think of that.....tut tut

he's talking about a fictitious world. this "age" thing isn't real. you could say it's what MIGHT happen (private military companies?) if the world ever evolved like this. but in all honesty, it's a fictitious story based in real world events and locations. sure, it's a great speech.
Following the Inevitable Announcement of Metal Gear Solid 5,we now have to Hold our Hands in Excitement,knowing the Next AAAA Playstation 3 Exclusive is being Prepared by the same Mastermind who brought the Critical and Retail Success,that is,the Man behind Metal Gear Solid 4:Guns of the Patriots,Hideo Kojima 小島 秀夫.
that xbox is getting a good game and not a crappy multiplayer with cheesy story (aka HALO 3).
Have you worked with Forge yet? Because ANY gamer (on either side) would tell you that it's an amazing experience to be able to tweak your maps and then put them to test online! I'm not even trying to sound like a fanboy here, Halo3 SERIOUSLY broke some ground in online multiplayer. I mean, the only way to get something close to forge basically would have meant being a PC gamer (since they usually pack in level editors and whatnot with their games). And Unreal 3 came out AFTER, so Halo3 still predates the best efforts out there.
[[ http://news.filefront.com/w... [[that is the pose of a genius]]
This can only mean the Halo franchise will get better.
Wasnt there a thread when he said he was leaving and it was full of post wishing him the best and now we get this. Fanboys are sad.
