Hideo Kojima is treating the PSP's Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker as Metal Gear Solid 5
Despite the drop in hardware possibilities Kojima reckons the team working on it are "aiming for PS3 quality because they were creating MGS4 on the PS3 not too long ago". Kojima did not comment on how Peace Walker's multiplayer would work but he has...
Remember Shadow Of Memories, the time-hopping detective game we called Shadow Of Destiny in the West? Well, it's coming to the PSP
The game will release on UMD in Japan the same day as the West get the PSP Go, October 1st. Alas, there's no real connection between the two seeing as Japan get the PSP Go a month later. No mention of a Western release but we're sure it will make its way over here..
In an interview with Famitsu Weekly, video game God Hideo Kojima has further reiterated his role on the upcoming Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow
"This has become a big project, one with the idea that we needed to make a Castlevania which had that same kind of feverish Western support, and that's why Kojima Productions came in to help," Kojima told the Japanese publication.</blockquote>..
Although Kojima did cite Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots as his last ever Metal Gear game, he's decided to return to the series that made him a star one more time - with Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
Speaking in Famitsu, Kojima describes Peace Walker as "his personal MGS5" and that the MGS4 team are working on it. But what of Metal Gear Solid Rising? Kojima bills it as "a..
You know what Metal Gear Online has been missing? Bikinis
Thank goodness Kojima-san and his Konami crew have considered it worthwhile to add such neccessities to the game as way of a celebration for its first birthday. You'll need the GENE update to download the bikinis. Check them in action after the jump. Big bums indeed.
The biggest question on our lips since the multi-platform announcement of Metal Gear Solid: Rising has been: how will the addition of a platform skew the output? We know the XBOX is a fine system, but it also lack disc and definite hard-drive space -- something that's had us pondering whether MGS:R will end up being a lesser product than its older brother
In Kojima Production's latest podcast they..
You know, when Jack Tretton stood up on stage and said there were more PSone games coming to the PSN we wanted to believe him but we just didn't think it was going to happen
Then bam! Final Fantasy VII went live on the American PSN almost immediately. Well following that up on June 18th is the original Metal Gear Solid. No word on a European release...
Kratos' first showing on Playstation 3 looked mighty incredible
But Kratos might do well to be a little concerned these days - what with Dante's Inferno and now, Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow lingering. The game is being developed by Mercurysteam but is being overlooked by the ever-so important Kojima Productions team. And it looks like that input is really helping the game to move forward; it looks..
Peter Dille, Sony's head of marketing for the US, has claimed he's "looking forward to playing Metal Gear Solid Rising on the Playstation 3
" When asked if the game would come out on the same day as the 360 he responded "yes, that's correct.""I think the difference between our approach in our press conference and our competitors' is that our focus is on exclusive content,"..
As predicted, Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima took to the stage at Sony's E3 conference today to announce Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker for the PSP
The game is set ten years after Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and is said to be the "true" sequel. Two Metal Gear games coming to Playstation platforms?!? The game will launch next year.
As part of a trio of reveals from press site GamesPress we now have details on Metal Gear Solid Rising's platform origins, Metal Gear Solid's romp on the PSP with Peace Walker and also a new Castlevania game entitled - Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow
Lords Of Shadow was a game originally pitched as an "action IP" by Madrid-based Mercury Steam, but it looks like the reigns of the game (and..
So much for being done with the Metal Gear Solid franchise, eh Kojima? Not only do we have Metal Gear Solid Rising, but announced via the very same press site we posted about earlier is a listing for Kojima's PSP game - Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
The game is scheduled for a 2010 release.
Hideo Kojima may have announced Metal Gear Solid Rising is in development for XBOX 360, but, hey, you know what? It's multiplatform
We already assumed that after Konami dodged the term "exclusive" and Microsoft's John Schappert clarified no exclusivity. But hey - a press listing for the game on PS3 and PC has pretty much confirmed things. We are wondering how Kojima is going to achieve..
Microsoft may have invited Hideo Kojima on stage to announce his new Metal Gear Solid game; but there was no mention of exclusivity
Why? Because it's not exclusive."You know, we didn't say that it was exclusive," clarified Xbox executive and corporate VP John Schappert (he was the guy hosting most of the event) during an interview with me immediately following the press conference..
Konami has declined to comment on the platform of Metal Gear Solid Rising; neither confirming XBOX 360 exclusivity, nor denying a Playstation 3 version
Kojima surely won't deny the platform that has made his franchise a success?
Zephyr: Rise Of The Elements is a new game for the PS3 in which you'll guide a tornado in its path of destruction
Looking at the image above, we're guessing Zephyr's going to be a pretty tongue in cheek experience. It's the first game to come from Loose Cannon Studios, a new team consisting of Sucker Punch veterans. We'll have more as we know it.
A new Metal Gear game entitled Metal Gear Rising was just announced for the XBOX 360
Most interesting part of this - the word "exclusive" was not mentioned at all. Expect Hideo Kojima to show up at Sony's E3 conference tomorrow.
The Kojima Productions website is still updating
But it's E3 this week, and it's unlikely to update many more times. We're going to hear something folks. Kojima is going to make an announcement of some kind. And that means we get to stop posting about these ridiculous countdowns. Today's post may be the last, it may be the penultimate, but either way - the clouds have parted. The sun is shining at..
Kojima has an announcement coming
He's probably running one of the most closely followed "viral marketing hype super-duper" campaigns (they taught us about these in Business Studies!) ever. The weather in the main teaser is worsening. An image of Raiden keeps popping up - but is it Raiden? It kinda looks like Sunny. And now just to top it all off, a NEW Flash video has been spotted with..
Another day, the end of another countdown over on Kojima's now infamous webpage
There's one thing to be said for Kojima Productions - they know how to create hype. The latest update sports, well, another countdown, but this time placed upon the face of Big Boss. He's looking somewhat older than he did in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater we'd like to mention. Rather confusing matters slightly, a..
Here's your first image of Kojima's next game
In typical style, it's blacked out, and raises more questions than it answers. There's nothing much else for us to say, aside from the fact it was printed in an, ahem, Playstation magazine. So that's Famitsu's Playstation mag and a British Playstation mag talking about Kojima now. Ahem. Oh God! We can't bare the tension.
So, there you have
There's another Metal Gear game on the way. And it's coming to a Playstation platform; be it PS3 or PSP. A listing on the 7-Eleven product database confirms that the May 30th issue of Famitsu PS3+PSP will feature details on the "Next Metal Gear". Presumably playing into the Kojima's countdown shenanigans, we're going to call Metal Gear: Raiden right here, right now..
Zombie Apocalypse is Konami's latest nod to the argument that video games are relying on the old fashioned zombie a little too much
Once a rarity in video games, the Resident Evil effect has since decided that virtually every game is worthy of their own seperate zombie section. Cue Konami's take on the zombie in Zombie Apocalypse, a PSN shooter akin...
Remember that Kojima announcement that was supposed to happen today? Well, it was a countdown
Five different countdowns to be precise. The last of which leads to an announcement on June 1st. Which incidentally is Microsoft's E3 conference - possible coincedence? We're not sure; let's face it, it wouldn't be the first time Sony literally allowed their closest rival to snatch away the exclusivity of..
Hey, Hideo Kojima is about to make an announcement
He's even put an advert in Japanese Bible Famitsu announcing an... announcement. Naturally the Internet had gone crazy claiming to see pictures of Wii Remotes, XBOX controllers and Solid Snake in the clouds. Us? We don't want to speculate. We really hope it's a new Metal Gear or Zone Of The Enders on the PS3 but - to be honest it really could be..
What better way to spend your time in Metal Gear Online than racing
The race mission will have two teams running through checkpoints after tracking down their frog and duck KEROTAN and GA-KO items (seriously!). Presumably the match is won by the team who passes through enough checkpoints mascot in hand. It's a pretty novel mode for a shooter. The Patriot perk will also be offered to the week's best..
When we play World War II games we often think: "hey this is a bit weird, glamorising a war that many people died in"
It's hardly man-kinds finest hour is it? While shooters are indefinitely fun, we can't help but feel mimicking real-life scenarios with recharging health bars and respawn points is a bit... Dumb. Alas, Konami's recently announced Six Days In Fallujah was one such game that sparked..
Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima has been labelled Most Valuable Person during the 2008 Famitsu Awards in Tokyo today
According to a snippet from Developmag, the award honours "the person who has contributed to the growth of the games industry, not limited to developers". In other words Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots was really, really bloody good. Old Snake took the award..
A quick heads up for our Japanese readers, if you haven't played MGS4: GOTP yet, you can now get the priveledge for much cheaper
¥3,990 to be precise. What's stopping you Japanese gamers. Pick up this fine piece of game now.
The last Zone Of The Enders game came six years ago and has developed quite a cult following ever since
Always living in the shadow of Hideo Kojima's "other" franchise, Metal Gear Solid, Kojima wants to know if fans are ready for more Z.O.E. While nothing is guaranteed yet, fan reaction has been through the roof for a new Z.O.E., something we're sure Kojima-san has been keeping his eye..
Hideo Kojima sure can't shut up about Western games/developers
We reckon he's spent a bit too much time reaching prestige mode in CoD4. And naturally as someone so obsessed with Western games, Kojima wants to produce one."I'm not sure when this will happen, but yes, I'm very interested," adding, "There are many development companies outside of Japan working with Konami, and I believe..
Did anyone really belive that Metal Gear Solid 4 was going to be series mastermind Kojima's last? We didn't
It seems we were right to doubt him too. Snake may be gone, but Raiden lives, and while there is a subprotagonist, there are always sequels to be made. Cue: Kojima's "Mission: The Next MGS" and a tiny picture of Raiden in the corner. Announcement will be made at E3. We're most..
Hideo Kojima, the mastermind behind the Metal Gear Solid series, has made an announcement regarding his next video game
That announcement is: to be announced at E3. That's right, Hideo Kojima has announced an announcement. There are few egos that could pull off such a stunt but, well, Hideo just about gets away with it. He also talked a little about himself, claiming he's not the big "action..
Noby Noby Boy might be getting offline multiplayer
According to the official website anyway. The teaser image, which shows BOY declaring "I want to play Multi-BOY" could mean anything, after all, we were at loss describing the game for our review. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.
Another game given away by a job description page
Konami are looking for people to help with "new developments" in the Metal Gear series, specifically for home consoles. Are you ready for a new Metal Gear game, readers?
Konami have just announced that last years hit sneak-em-up Metal Gear Solid 4 is to go "Platinum"
The "Platinum" range, which rewards popular titles with a re-release, already caters hit titles such as Assassin's Creed and Uncharted. Metal Gear Solid 4 shipped 3 million copies on it's release in June 2008.
The more we see of Kojima's work the more we consider him a mythical being as opposed to human flesh like the rest of us
So it's interesting to see what kind of movies inspires such an inspirational mind. Listed below are the top movies that inspired his Metal Gear Solid franchise: The Guns of Navarone The Great Escape Goldfinger 2001: A Space Odyssey Planet of the Apes (original work) The Deer..
