Xbox and Playstation Keep Playing Russian Roulette, Except Kojima Is the Gun

The Nerd Stash: Kojima Productions as a whole is nothing without Hideo Kojima himself and the backing of either Xbox or PlayStation.

Lets be honest Kojima is a Playstation man through and through and his effort on the MS project will be minimal, experimental and lip service at best. Once DS2 is complete he will focus almost all of his efforts on this new Stealth IP for Playstation, thinking anything else is just denial.

Must be nice to be the official spokesperson for Kojima. Lucky you

What I noticed was that Kojima’s spiritual Metal Gear new IP having game and movie integration/overlap/continuati on (in some way) sounds very much like the vision he revealed at the Game Awards regarding his partnership with Xbox.

Some chump was recommending he sell his business to PlayStation - why would he do that? He has his own company, it’s making big money, he’s partnered with the biggest names to create his dream projects. Hideo Kojima is winning.

So you think he's gonna intentionally blemish his reputation with a bad game... Because console wars? That's crazy.

I think O.D is a Spiritual Silent Hill and Physint is a spiritual Metal Gear.

If OD is cloud based...I'm sorry but that's a stretch. The Xbox thing is probably a little project he's had in mind.

Random N4G PS fanboy : "just a small little project"

Yep, Microsofts move to pay Kojima for his canceled Google project was a desperate play for relevancy. Just like them paying Sega for Persona, a genre game xbox fans largely aren't interested in just to say that they have quirky Japanese games on their platform to, same with
square and it's Mana game. Of course Kojima will focus on the project that will get the most attention from from the gaming public and make the most money.

Michiel1989117d ago

so how should they try and have japanese made games on their platform then? Also was sony just desperate then that they threw 3.6 billion at bungie just so they can say they have live service games or does it only work one way?

Xbox never had as many japanese games as Sony/Ninty but they always had a couple of (good) japanese games on their platform, nothing wrong with having a amazing game like Persona 5 on your platform, I don't see how you can even give such a bad take about having persona be available to more players, astonishing.

Lightning77117d ago

MS provides the tech and funds for the OD project and you think he'll just ignore that game? You really think MS would allow that? Every person that thinks straight knows that, that's not how it works. That N4G logic in on another world of nonsensical stupidity.

They didn’t actually say stealth
They said espionage.

This is better for me I don’t have the nerves for stealth but a James Bond esque game with a bit of puzzle solving/ detective work and minimal stealth, would be great!

We all know Kojima likes his freedom and we know what console developers get the most freedom🤷🏿 only an orchard full of moldy brains would think otherwise.

i took that as him saying there will be no difference from gameplay to cutscenes. Equal amount game and movie. Something he wanted to achieve with MGS but with PS6 tech he will have that. I am sure sony will discuss PS6's specs with him so he can provide his feedback and know what he is working with

Workshyskiver

even he said his partnership with sony goes back 3 decades so yes i am sure he is a playstation guy through and through but i don't think he will short change xbox

Neutral you're not wrong. There is absolutely no reason for Kojima not to do his best with od its got his name associated with it. It's not like Kojima to half a$$ anything.

Workshyskiver117d ago

What I meant is the scope and effort put in to the project. I'll be shocked if OD is as big in scope as DS, DS2 or his new game.

neutralgamer1992117d ago

i agree with you on that. OD is something he is expermenting with IMO

DaniMacYo117d ago

X Box is a dead market. All they got is money talks.

Hideo is more like a cracked Whiffle ball bat. Roulette? No, he’s more likely to stub a toe in the shallow end of the pool and cry. I love how he’s a superficial champion because people liked and fan for his games, shallow minded as f. You need to seriously crack the curtain open.

Kojima Productions is nothing without its misplaced and very skilled staff (what you think Hideo came up//made/designed all this himself? are you nutz?). Hideo is 100% NOT a business man (As evidenced with his behavior and dealings with Konami’s funds and his own studio (eh…yeah that bridge is sooo krispy and still smoking).

Elitism, drama and ego have no place in gaming and it’s a constant theme with KP. Don’t give a f what their new game is about, and Hideo did that himself. Go suck an 1000 year old egg Hideo. We’ll expect to see your studio did for you on sale few months after release and free within a year. I’d love to see his staff go-western (since he likes to) and grow a pair and leave him flat on his ass).

These days Hideo comes off worse than an annoying influencer desperate for clicks. More news about his studio BS or the ‘innovation and special magic’ they infusing into a game rather than giving news on the actual game, and then we get shi7 like death stranding….
