Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima appears to have fallen head over heels for the PlayStation 4. The legendary developer recently declared that upcoming prologue Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes would shine most on Sony’s system, and now he’s candidly admitted that the Japanese giant’s latest device is by far the best currently available.

“I think, between the home consoles available in the domestic market, the PS4 is the best,” said the outspoken auteur. “It’s also excellent for graphics, being able to render 1080p at 60 frames-per-second with room to spare. Since it does it a little better than other hardware, the image quality of the PS4 is the most beautiful. It’s the closest to the photo-realistic quality that we are aiming at.”

Given the developer’s long standing connection with PlayStation platforms, these comments may not come as an enormous surprise – but perhaps the biggest exclamation point here is that Kojima Productions is a multiformat developer these days, with the abovementioned luminary even awkwardly appearing during Microsoft’s E3 press conference last year.

It’s interesting that he specifically mentions that the PS4 is capable of processing software in 1080p at 60 frames-per-second, as that leads us to believe that the studio’s aforesaid stopgap will run at such settings. Are you looking forward to what the studio can do with Mark Cerny’s super machine? Flaunt your hardware in the comments section below.
