Kojima Productions confirm that the development team that worked on Metal Gear Solid 4 are now starting to work on Metal Gear Solid: Rising.
Is this not very old news? Haven't we known since just after E3 that this was the case?
whens this game due?
@1.1 - God knows @1 - No as it tells you in the article, the MGS4 team have been working on peace walker since MGS4 released.
some where i heard there doing things with the 360 kojima did't think was possible which means his limiting things not meaning to but if he was involed he would have i'd rather him not carry join in lol
you on drugs or something kojima has never said there doing things on the 360 he thought was not possible if so please provide a genuine link to the story.
Oh my... I accidentally read 'Now' as 'Not' My apologies.
Ahh so now that they are done making MGS5 they move onto the spin off. What a shame and waste of good talent.
That means, that the game will look top notch on the PS3. But still, Kojima is NOT the Gamedirector. Don't expect an epic game like MGS4.. But, that doesn't mean that it will not be a great Action Game..
I liked MGS4, so i'm interested to see how this one turns out! Sux that snake probably won't be in it, but hopefully, it's set up like Sons of liberty and snake pops up from time to time.
oh this is hilarious. all the ps3 fanboys kept spouting that "kojima isnt even interested in Rising" "it'll suck - no kojima"...now what?
"but with key players from the MGS4 team now working on it, hopefully the development should speed up drastically" Now I'm relieved and much more confident that the PS3 version will be equal to the 360, if not better;)
Poor Blaze... O-T: I Hope this end well, don't like the Idea of this [email protected] mean Raiden being the Main Character but, I'll buy the Game cuz it's a MGS Game, Spin-off or not, still a MGS Game...
blaze, calm down.. I just mean, that not every gamedirector is a genius like Kojima..
This definitely good news. MGS4 team working on Rising guarantee game is gonna be good.
I guess Kojima cares about this game afterall. Can't wait to play the superior 360 version.
So Kojima is working on his confidential project and some of you read that as "Kojima is now working on MGS: Rising"? I am sure you can not see why that makes no sense. And that is okay.
If you read the article: "Kojima also confirmed earlier this week via Twitter that he was working on a "Confidential Project," so it is unlikely that his entire team is working on Rising." So by that quote Kojima will be spending more time on his "Confidential Project" then Rising. Besides its old news that Kojima is involved in Rising as a producer, the team working on it is so new that he has to supervise them to make sure they don't screw up. You do know the difference between a MGS game that is directed and written by Kojima then one that is just produced by Kojima
@DOMination wow can you be less of a fanboy??? can people please remove his bubbles as do we really need crap like that around here. This shows we got a talented team on the game at least but not Kojima himself at least. The good thing is they worked with PS3 before so you know it's gonna look great on PS3 and since 360 is the easiest console to develop for it will too look good as for on par? We will have to wait for release date for confirmation on that. No doubt this place will be flooded with comparison shots and vids near launch..
You know after this most recent hype push on MGS:PW I'm a little MGS'd and Kojima'd out from a gaming news standpoint.
This is wonderful news. I'm still skeptical about Rising, but this can only mean good things for the final game.
conformation dat kojima n co. are involved
This game will be on both systems, it is not a 360 exclusive. I am a fan of MetalGear games, I've played almost everyone of them, and when it comes out(some time next year)I will pick it up for my PS3. People keep talking crap about MGS4, and praise MGS:R. MGS4 was a great game and we will all be increadible lucky if they can deliever with MGS:R as well. But just because the game will also be on 360 doesn't mean it will be crappy, and just because MGS 4 wasn't on the 360 doesn't mean that it is crappy.
Interesting. This could be then PS3 lead platform for MGS:R and 360 port. MGS4 team are more familiar with PS3 platform so this could be fun.
I'm glad the MGS4 team is involved in this game because originally they were having very young, fresh new talent handle this game entirely and that just sort of smelled like a disaster waiting to happen. I sort of figured Kojima wouldn't let a MGS game come out without his involvement in "some" way because I'm sure he wants to keep that games' reputation intact even though he personally did not want that game to be made. This was a power move by Konami. Kojima didn't want Rising to exist, but Konami knows that's money and it's not as if Konami has a lot of other bread and butter games. They knew that Kojima would get involved because MGS is like his love child and even if you hate who your child is sleeping with (in this case, the 360) it's still your child and he wants to make sure that it's at least a good experience. So, now my interest is back in this game because honestly I sort of wrote it off when they said it was Konami's B-Team building it.
Kojima him self is not working on it why would you think that the rest of the OG's are going to work on it too ??? we know that they are working on MGS:PW aka MGS:5 on the PSP
haven't we learn from ff13 and AW? even the claim to be graphic king Alan Wake is sub HD.
Meh, you can read into this whatever you like. You might think it was going so badly Kojima HAD to bring some experience ion to save the project OR it was going so well that it span to a size the new team weren't ready to handle alone-who knows? Only fact I can see is that, whatever the state of Rising, Kojima didn't trust the youngsters alone to pull it off and seeing as he's already spread so thin himself who the hell else was going to be brought in? What I don't get is just how the old hands will react to doing a more action base game and I thought the sense in the newer team doing it was because they'd be less stuck on past MGS gaming mechanics and such. Again, though, who can tell exactly what they're up to?
@^^^^^^ Shortest mastiffchild post ever? J/K :) Probably part of MGS4 team has been working on Rising from day one, but now with MGS:PW gold it seems most of them are full time on the game. Whatever the case, Rising is not looking like a 2010 release. I'm pretty curiuos to see what Rising brings to the table, probably it will try to cater a more action inclined audience.
enjoy the spin off als0 ur 360 will get rrod before the 4th level also u dont get snake also the microsoft guy couldnt say mgs right
"Metal Gill Solid" lol
(from the same developer)
I thought you didn't want a "movie"? Make up your mind! Do you or don't you want it? Could it be that you only like MGS now because its one the 360?
i have metal gear solid four. Its a good game.
is my interest in this title. (not)
Hey! It's Austin Powers!! .. Love that guy lol, makes me laugh "...You alright, baby?" :D :D :D
Good news? You bet'cha ass it is! Kojima-san & his team are brilliant at games development :) Bad news? .. The wait is too long for his latest creations.. And I'm not just talking about MGS Rising.. Peace Walker! :(
The article says nothing about Kojima just the team who worked on MGS 4.
...having to work on that 'POS' the 'xBotched 360'!!! ;-D I love MGS Games but i won't be buying MGS:Rising.
aww baby spilt his milk.look at him cry! and i thought you were really into your 'men in cat-suits' further proof that you guys are console fanboys and not game fanboys
yeah Wrath and likes bot never have said things like that before ;)
MGS:Rising will also be on the PS3 it's not like it's exclusive. If you click to read full article, it's from a Playstation site. So I'm not sure why you would pass up on MGS:Rising just because it's also on the 360. I've played almost every MetalGear, and I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with this one.
they will be working on the dessert now! :D
.. If you're a cook, and you've had lady friends over for dinner ... You'd know that Dessert is the best part ... ;)
but I'm no cook. ^_^
still wont be as good as mgs4 or mgo
you played it? or even seen any footage of it? or even seen stills of it?
A true Metal Gear fan should careless about the platform the game is on and should focus more on the game itself because this franchise has been giving us epicness since 1987 and let's not blow it for a frickin "multi-platform" deal. Metal Gear lives beyond the damn PS3 and Xbox 360. Remember that.
A. Rising team ain't doing so well.. B. Kojima looked at the product and said "MATAKU, ITAE NANDA DES-YO NE? MINA, IKKIMASSHU NE." -End statement
People that disagree with DigitalAnalog, really understand what the hell he wrote after [B.]?, cuz I'm clueless @[email protected] lol
To the best of my translation abilities: "JEEZ, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU GUYS DOING? HEY, EVERYONE (MGS4 team) LET'S DO THIS!" Hope that helps. ***Oh and the disagrees are from the haters, nothing more, nothing less. (Or they hated option A.) -End statement
so much for them not working on it lol. someone will be butthurt about this...
its coming to 360 and PS3, with Kojima and his squad now working on the game, it's guaranteed to be better than if they didn't. Are there people that actually want this game to fail? lol
Why people don't mention the PC? Is coming for the 3 Platforms.
Kojima isn't working on it. From the beginning the team has always been split with kojima and part of his team working on peace walker and the other team supposed to be working on Rising. Kojima doesn't want to work on rising and is letting his team do it themselves.
Great, MGS4 was pure quality and we can expect Rising to be great too.
but alot of people are gonna say since it isnt ps3 exclusive it will be inferior. I dont know why, but they will say it.
I won't say it's inferior. But I will say it won't take up more than 6.8g of storage space.
Work on MGS5, a true MGS4 sequel, not this spinoff multi-plat garbage.
you ever stop to think that maybe...maybe~ kojima wanted to bring the series to another console and start a entire new series out of it... Unless you think kojima is the type of person who would take a bribe and just throw all his career away for a bit of money...cause that's what your implying.
Hideo Kojima: MGS: Peace Walker = MGS: 5
@Above Hmmm I would love that. Is it Photoshopped or is it real?
it is real. I wonder why they dropped the "5" though.
isn't this a bit late in development? although, i have no idea how far along they are assuming they at least started around E3 of last, development should be almost a year in
I say it takes about 3 years to complete a top notch game with an experienced studio.
Would the game be a "spin-off" or would it be treated as much canon to the story of the MGS universe itself? -End statement
Much of the same as Portable Ops was spin off for being a "Side Story" for Big Boss after MGS 3. I mean by what we got so far the overall plot of this game revolves around Raiden after MGS 2 and into MGS 4. Where the main plot of MGS 4 was involved between Solid Snake and Liquid Ocelot.
They've always been working on it. Kojima himself isn't working on it though.
That is true. Everyone is speculating that Rising's plot will be somewhere between MGS2 and MGS4 events. For now we have no idea, we'll have to wait until E3 comes to find out. Kojima better has something worth the wait because we've been waiting for news about Rising for too damn long and sometimes I wonder how Starcraft fans have to wait for Blizzard to finish the sequel!
