Game enters critical phase
Hideo Kojima has provided an impromptu update on Death Stranding’s progress, suggesting potentially we may see more of the PlayStation 4 exclusive during Sony’s State of Play livestream tomorrow. As part of a random social media post, the auteur said that the title had entered a “critical phase” of development, and...
"We haven't said anything about world premieres"
The Game Awards 2018 will have the largest selection of reveals in the show’s short history, but will Death Stranding be part of that? Hideo Kojima’s upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive has been the highlight of the event several times now, and with Sony pulling the plug on PlayStation Experience,...
Created by Joakim Mogren?
Death Stranding director Hideo Kojima shared a trailer for a game called RUSSIA 2055 on social media today, and it’s being developed by a studio that we’ve never heard of before. Ordinarily we’d shrug and move on with our lives, but this is the same guy who created a f
The Boss also plays a part
Death Stranding is set to feature at the Tokyo Game Show later this week, and director Hideo Kojima has revealed that the PlayStation 4 exclusive's Japanese voice cast will be present during a stage presentation. Nothing too out of the ordinary, but then Kojima's posted a Tweet saying that the cast includes voice actors...
Keighley x Kojima
Keighley and Kojima sitting in a tree, we probably can't finish this joke for legal reasons. The game industry's deadliest duo is back are back in the headlines after Geoff Keighley posted a picture of Hideo Kojima on Twitter, as the daddy of Metal Gear stood next to a screen with The Game Awards logo on it. For those...
The ever-enigmatic Death Stranding is one of Sony's four flagship exclusives we'll be seeing more of at E3 2018, and the mind behind the madness, Hideo Kojima, has been teasing a new trailer on Twitter recently. In response to Neil Druckmann's tweet, itself building excitement for The Last of Us: Part II at Sony's showcase, Kojima
Here we go
We can’t freakin’ wait for this one. Sony’s said that one of the four games it will “deep dive” during its E3 2018 press conference next month is Death Stranding, and Hideo Kojima has been teasing the title’s latest trailer all over his Twitter. The auteur’s spent the past week posting pictures of Adobe P
"We've never seen a game being created at such a fast pace"
Hideo Kojima and protracted development cycles go together like cheese and pickle sandwiches, but it sounds like the Decima Engine is bringing Death Stranding to life quicker than anyone expected. Speaking in the latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation (as translated by Gematsu), director Hideo...
A few key questions answered
What the heck was that Death Stranding trailer about, then? IGN sat down with Hideo Kojima in order to ask that very question, and while the auteur shied away from some details, he was surprisingly candid in his responses about the game. So, where to start? How about the
Confirmed guest presenters
We’re a little bit torn on Death Stranding right now. It’s been a year since we last got an update on Hideo Kojima’s madcap PlayStation 4 exclusive, and part of us is gagging to see more. But we can’t help but feel it would be really cool if Sony and Kojima Productions resisted the urge to reveal more, and just...
The publisher's not happy
Hell hath no fury like Konami scorned, apparently. A report in Japanese newspaper Nikkei has revealed that the ongoing feud between the Japanese publisher and Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima is ongoing – despite him having left the company years ago following the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Back then...
E3 2017 preparations or just a progress report? According to his Twitter account, Hideo Kojima spent the day in meetings with some of Sony's big wigs, including PlayStation 4 architect Mark Cerny and the ridiculously likeable marketing chief Asad Qizilbash. We bet you could almost smell the talent filtering out of the meeting room...
Hideo Kojima has been chatting about Death Stranding and Guerrilla Games' Decima Engine, as he tends to do every couple of months or so. In an interview with the PlayStation Blog, the auteur has revealed that he believes the aforementioned Dutch developer's Decima Engine technology to be a "league ahead" of everyone else, and that's...
We need intel
Let's face it: we don't know much about Death Stranding or how it plays. Kojima's gone off on a few tangents in the past, alluding to stealth and hitting people with sticks - if we remember right - but it's difficult to picture gameplay until we've actually seen it. Still, at least we know that it's not going to join the ranks of...
Oh so Quiet
Hideo Kojima has said that he wants to take a "different approach" to the way that female characters are represented in PlayStation 4 exclusive Death Stranding. The auteur was chatting with the BBC's Newsbeat following a recent studio tour, and he said that he wants to avoid heroines who have "big breasts and no back story". He expla
Hideo's back, folks
Hideo Kojima admitted following his break-up with Konami that he considered quitting games for good, but he was convinced to start again. Now it seems like the auteur is very much over the past, and is looking to the future. Today an embargo has lifted showing off the inside of his new studio, and it looks frankly astonishing...
Yeah, it's a slow news day
Hideo Kojima's busy building LEGO rather than Death Stranding, and his latest project is complete. The auteur's love-in with Guerrilla Games goes on, as he's created Aloy and a Tallneck from Horizon: Zero Dawn using the popular Danish playthings. What more is there to say? Well, we're going to have to pad out another...
Sent to the stands
Geoff Keighley's teary tribute to Hideo Kojima during last night's The Game Awards may have been a touch over-the-top, but speaking with Glixel prior to the show, the host did reveal a little more about the luminary's predicament at Konami. Apparently, during the final stages of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's production,...
Dead or alive
First revealed during Sony's press conference at E3 back in the summer, Death Stranding is Hideo Kojima's typically batsh*t baby, and we may be seeing - or at least hearing - more about it at next month's PlayStation Experience. About time, we reckon. Obviously, we don't know much about Death Stranding at this point. All we've seen...
Be still our beating heart
Hideo Kojima is taking a vacation in the sun-baked sprawls of Venice, Italy. But even when out and about among such idyllic beauty, he can't resist a spot of trolling. Case in point: the image embedded above. Our hearts can't take this cruel teasing, Kojima-san.
The definition of decadent
Haha, we absolutely love this. Appearing at the San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend, Hideo Kojima revealed the "logo movie" for his new studio Kojima Productions, which will presumably be displayed when you boot up Death Stranding. The clip – embedded below – is just about as ostentatious as you can possibly imagine,...
Hideo Kojima – the creator of bonafide classics like Metal Gear Solid and, er, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty – believes that Death Stranding, his brand new PlayStation 4 exclusive game, will be his greatest work to date. The veteran was speaking in Brighton at the Develop conference alongside fellow legend Mark Cerny, who...
"Do what you have to do," platform holder said
Hideo Kojima has hinted in an interview with French website Gameblog that he didn't really have to pitch Death Stranding to Sony – and that the level of trust between the two partners is one of the reasons that he signed with the company for his first independent project. "Working with Sony afforded...
In the tub
Mark Cerny, the PlayStation 4's architect, appeared in the credits for Hideo Kojima's mysterious Death Stranding trailer this week, suggesting that the industry legend will have some role in the development of the exclusive game. The outrageously talented veteran was listed as Technical Producer, which makes a lot of sense considering...
And it is very very weird
Hideo Kojima unveiled his new project at Sony's E3 press conference today, and it was delightfully bizarre. There is very little we actually know about the game - which is called Death Stranding - but here's our basic rundown of the trailer: Naked Norman Reedus is attached to a naked baby. The baby dissapears, but leaves a...
For the players
Buddies Geoff Keighley and Hideo Kojima got together and had a friendly chat today to discuss his feelings over the major shifts in his life over the past year, where he's been in his worldwide travels visiting game studios, and what he has planned for his new studio. However, Keighley asked two questions in particular that caught...
Small and intimate
Do you remember Hideo Kojima's recent worldwide tour? The auteur picked up a lot of tips for the running of his own independent studio, and he's modelling it on Media Molecule. Speaking with Game Reactor, the veteran revealed all about the new
Ever since the new Kojima Productions was formed, Hideo Kojima has been hinting that there's a greater mystery behind the independent studio's logo. And he's finally revealed it today, showcasing LUDENS – a sci-fi knight covered in bottle caps – which serves to illustrate the vision behind the veteran's fresh outfit. "We'll deliver the...
Will be available as a figurine
Metal Gear maker Hideo Kojima has partnered with Sony to create an all-new PlayStation 4 exclusive, but it'll probably be a little while before we get to see it in action. The auteur has been speaking to Japanese media, however, teasing in the latest issue of Famitsu magazine that there's more to his studio's logo...
"He knows no limits"
The Game Awards gaffer and ex-journalist Geoff Keighley hooked up with his mate Hideo Kojima at The DICE Awards last night, prompting a spate of hyperbolic tweets. Speaking of the developer's upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive, the Canadian said: "Blown away by the scale and ambition of what Hideo is planning. He
And won't be virtual reality
Hideo Kojima is not a man who does things by half. This is a guy who, famously, is such a control freak that he has a hand in practically everything pertaining to his titles; he's the Prince of the video game industry, and it should come as no surprise that Virgo is his star sign. It shouldn't surprise you that he's...
Hideo Kojima, you great big tease. The veteran director, fresh from his global tour with Mark Cerny, has posted a picture of himself hanging out with The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus. The picture is significant, of course, because the talented twosome were set to work together on Silent Hills, the cancelled PlayStation 4...
"I will continue creating cutting-edge games"
We're going to get mutilated by Metal Gear fans, but we've always found the writing in the series to be convoluted and heavy-handed. That said, creator Hideo Kojima's typing some nice stuff on Twitter as he travels back home from his PlayStation world tour. In one tweet, he talked about how developers...
For the past week and a bit, Metal Gear maker Hideo Kojima has been touring the world with PlayStation 4 system architect Mark Cerny. The uber-intelligent twosome – who must surely have a combined IQ nearing the 300s – have been hitting the headquarters of practically all PlayStation studios,
Hideo Kojima's very public technology tour has touched down in London, where he'll presumably spend the start of next week checking out the latest titles from London Studio and Media Molecule. For those that haven't been keeping up, the Metal Gear maker has spent a chunk of
Should it stay or Hideo?
Now that Hideo Kojima's escaped from the clutches of Konami, the Metal Gear maker is allowed to worry about the little things again. And one question that's causing the auteur real anxiety at the moment is whether he should keep his facial hair. "Should I shave?" he asked on Twitter yesterday, adding a poll so that his...
The world tour begins
Mark Cerny and Hideo Kojima's world tour is going to generate more degrees on N4G than a nude Rise of the Tomb Raider mod, isn't it? After opening his Twitter account in epic fashion earlier today, the PlayStation 4 architect has been posting shots of the Metal Gear maker like he's in danger of going out of fashion.
Ready the tubs
Since creating one of the hottest consumer electronics products on the planet, Mark Cerny has faded back into the background – but his presence behind-the-scenes is likely as influential as ever. Fortunately, we may be about to get a little more insight into what the PlayStation 4 architect is up to, as he's just opened an official...
But realised that making games is his mission in life
Exactly what happened between Konami and Hideo Kojima is unlikely to ever be made public, but it's clear that it put the Metal Gear Solid creator in a mentally dark place. As part of an excellent New Yorker report, the auteur has revealed that he considered taking a "mind-cleansing" trip to a...
Metal Gear maker explains decision behind PS4 exclusive
Hideo Kojima has admitted that he had interest from other companies, but he chose to partner with Sony for his first independent project because he feels "comfortable" with the platform holder. The veteran developer has long been a part of the PlayStation furniture, and even though his more...
New title will be published by SCE on PS4
Hideo Kojima's first independent game will be published by Sony and won't have anything to do with the Metal Gear Solid or Silent Hill franchises, the platform holder has revealed. The manufacturer has said that the PlayStation 4 console
The reports were true: Hideo Kojima has formed a new studio and has partnered with PlayStation to deliver an "innovative gaming experience" as part of a new PlayStation 4 console exclusive. The Metal Gear Solid maker's new team is independent, but it looks like it will be working very closely with Sony during the creation of its first title. The...
Metal Gear maker setting up new studio
Update (11:00AM GMT): The rumours were true: Hideo Kojima has partnered with PlayStation to build a brand new PS4 exclusive. You can find all of the information through here. Update (19:30PM GMT): PlayStation Nation claims that Hideo Kojima's new studio is independent, b
The drunk Jade Raymond gaffe aside, Geoff Keighley's seemingly reckless swipe at Konami was the best moment of The Game Awards 2015. Shortly after Kiefer Sutherland took to the stage to collect an award on the behalf of Hideo Kojima, the Canadian host announced that lawyers had prevented the video game veteran from attending the show. We...
But photo of leaving party emerges
This story gets crazier. A report on the New Yorker last night revealed that Hideo Kojima left Konami on 9th October, but the publisher has denied that thi
End of an era
Hideo Kojima is no longer a Konami employee. That's according to award-winning journalist Simon Parkin, writing for the New Yorker. While the report hones in on the mechanisms behind the auteur's departure from Konami – mobile games, exploding console budgets, and so on – it states that the Metal Gear Solid maker left his wor
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is finished, and if you believe industry gossip, series creator Hideo Kojima is soon to be a free agent. This photograph of the legend posing with PlayStation 4 architect Mark Cerny was certain to draw attention, then. The picture was posted on Twitter earlier today, though the meeting does seem pretty...
For the love of Big Boss
To say that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has endured rocky pre-release and post-release periods is an understatement. Whether it's been headlines regarding Konami's questionable internal management and the firing of series creator Hideo Kojima, or the previous save corruption bug, Big Boss' finale has been...
Comrades in arms
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain features very fun and flexible mission design. From fully customisable loadouts to the fact that you can tackle almost any operation exactly as you see fit, you're always given countless options when it comes to fulfilling your objectives. One of the game's most interesting additions to the...
Kept you waiting, huh?
If you pump some funds into Mother Base's research and development sector, you can create increasingly insane ways of dealing with the countless guards that populate Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's sandbox world. YouTube user Iron Pineapple has gone above and beyond with the hell that they put this particular soldier...
That's just boss
Well this came out of nowhere. According to Konami Europe's official Twitter account, using Quiet as a companion during mission 29 or mission 42 can corrupt your save file. No further details have been given, but we thought that it was best to get the word out. Quiet is one of the few buddies that you can take on missions with...
I've finally had a chance to really sink my teeth into Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain this weekend, and I've already came to one pretty dramatic conclusion: it has the best open mission design that I've experienced in a game. A pretty bold statement, I'm sure you'll agree, but it's one that I'm quite confident in - and not just...
"My energy comes from the players"
The below video may seem like a goodbye, but Hideo Kojima is clearly confident in what he's accomplished with Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. The miniature documentary lasts around ten minutes, and covers many angles of the newly released blockbuster as well as Kojima's involvement with it. It's also got...
See you space cowboy
Not many games manage to roll absolute hype and saddening, sombre undertones into one amazing five minute trailer, but Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's somehow managed it. Directed and edited by none other than Hideo Kojima himself, it almost feels like a goodbye from the visionary in numerous ways, and not just because...
"They’ll kiss and make up"
Ah, good old Peter Moore. The EA executive is always throwing out some great quotes, and speaking with GameSpot, he's now commented on the supposedly sour relationship between Hideo Kojima and Konami. "I just think both of them should kiss and make up," he joked. In a more serious manner, Moore goes on to say that "from...
Metal Gear Solid V budget over $80 million
You may hate your job, but at least you don't work for Konami. An article published by respected Japanese newspaper Nikkei has shed a little light on conditions at the Japanese company of late, and there's some mind blowing stuff in here. This follows the news that Kojima Productions has been disbanded...
Silent Hills is dead, long live Silent Hills
Silent Hills is as dead as a doornail, but that doesn't mean that game directors Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro won't be working together anymore. In fact, the two are already sharing ideas and planning a new game. "I love working with Kojima-san. We are still in touch," del Toro told IGN. "We are...
Kojima is dead, long live Kojima
Over here at Push Square Towers, sometimes even we are baffled at some of the potential news that slips under our radar for long periods of time, and you can count this article as a demonstration of that in action. Gamespot has relayed a YouTube video by timesplitter88 that showcases an obscure side objective that...
Gone into hiding
In a move that we're sure many of you saw coming, Konami has removed all references to famous developer Hideo Kojima and his team, Kojima Productions, from the box of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. As reported last week, it seems that the aforementioned studio was recently disbanded. With Big Boss' latest escapade...
It's been a while since we heard anything from Kojima Productions, but according to a not-so cryptic tweet made by Akio Otsuka – the Japanese voice actor for Solid Snake – the developer has officially been disbanded. Writing on Twitter, the veteran larynx lender posted a heartfelt goodbye to the studio that turned him into a star among...
If we assume that Hideo Kojima really is being pushed out of Konami, and his employment status isn't just a big viral marketing move, then the luminary may find his role at the company that little more untenable today. Dr Sergio Canavero, a controversial medical professional vying to complete the world's first ever head transplant, has...
Burke's feeling like a burk
Hideo Kojima has been fired – at least, that was Metal Gear Solid voice actress Donna Burke's read of the situation last week. Konami has since said that her comments were inaccurate, and, writing on Facebook, the Ground Zeroes performer agreed. "I should be more accurate," she said, no doubt with a drawn
Veteran video game visionary Hideo Kojima was fired by Konami, according to Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes actress Donna Burke. Reports earlier in the year revealed that the legendary developer would leave the Japanese publisher once Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was finished – but there was still the slightest possibility that his...
Well, there goes that
After that stunning debut demo – which was this author's personal pick for Game of the Year – enthusiasm for Hideo Kojima's take on the Silent Hill franchise was sky high here at Push Square Towers. However, following news that the esteemed director will be joining the e
Now we just need to find work for Jezza Clarkson
As part of a publicity stunt that had this humourless host grinning like a Cheshire cat, humble German developer Deck 13 has offered video game veteran Hideo Kojima a job. The studio, which is perhaps best known for the decent Dark Souls clone Lords of the Fallen, has extended a hand to the ousted...
War never changes
Just as we were going to press with our report on suggestions that Hideo Kojima has parted company with Konami, our friends at GameSpot posted a slightly more speculative article regarding the inner-happenings at the Japanese publisher. According to the site – via an anonymous source – a power struggle between the organisati
The web has gone utterly bonkers today – and not just because Push Square has been offline for the majority of it. While we were playing office charades waiting for our server rack to be fixed, Konami was busy removing references to acclaimed video game veteran Hideo Kojima from virtually every asset under its umbrella. Seriously, it's almost...
Hideo Kojima took to the stage at Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show conference earlier today, where he announced that P.T — the playable teaser of Silent Hills — had been downloaded over one million times. The statistic is actually rather impressive when you stop to think about it. It was only at Gamescom that
Kojima reckons your current ones are going to get messy
Silent Hills is official. The game was announced in a cryptic manner during Sony’s big Gamescom 2014 press conference yesterday, courtesy of a PlayStation 4 demo available now on the PlayStation Store. It’s being helmed by
In arguably the most bizarre and brilliant headline to come out of Sony's Gamescom conference today, it has been uncovered that Hideo Kojima will be creating a new Silent Hill game for PlayStation 4. Ever the provocateur, Kojima couldn't simply announce the game during the presser, but instead had to sneakily reveal it afterwards...
Do you want to know how Hideo Kojima made Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes look so good? Are you eager to learn how every follicle of Snake's facial fleece was fashioned to a fine finesse? Is all of this alliteration making you physically ill? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you're in for a treat, as Konami has...
But totally rad
One of the most intriguing new pieces of tech in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is Snake's handy dandy iDroid. The technological toy replaces some of the functions of the traditional codec, while also adding in a few nifty new abilities. It's a pretty unsubtle jab at the insanely popular iPhone, but we'll forgive it, if only...
Thinking outside the box
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is quietly creeping up on us, so Sony has put together this video interview with franchise director Hideo Kojima, in which he explains some of the title's exciting new features. One such element that the auteur is keen to emphasise is the ability to access information such as Snake's map and...
Man-tis game looks good
It's still a little hard to believe that we'll be getting a next-gen Metal Gear Solid game so early in the PlayStation 4's lifecycle. Some have compared the purportedly paltry prologue to the Tanker mission from the second game in the franchise, but that certainly isn't stopping u
Don't be a Hayter
You may have noticed that Metal Gear Solid series director Hideo Kojima has recently been talking up an exclusive partnership between Sony and Konami that will apparently facilitate an entire menagerie of stealthy promotional tie-ins. We've already seen the
Snake in at 1080p
Following industry legend Hideo Kojima's praise of the PlayStation 4, new details have revealed that Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes will run at 1080p on Sony's super machine, compared to 720p on the Xbox One. Both next-gen instalments will run at 60 frames-per-second, while the PlayStation 3 version will run in 720p at 30...
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 fa
De-cypher this one
Hideo Kojima, the director of the critically acclaimed Metal Gear Solid franchise, may just be the king of social media. The auteur is clearly getting bored now that he doesn't get to play dress up anymore, so he's decided to bombar
Box of mysteries
Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has been constantly teasing just about everything to do with his upcoming game Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes lately. Not wanting to tarnish his new reputation, the Japanese visionary has started the week by showing off the title's special edition packaging. But does this st
Luminary picks Sony's system over Xbox One
It may have a running time comparable to the average Hollywood blockbuster, but Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes is still one of the most hotly anticipated titles on the horizon for the PlayStation 4. Serving as a prologue to the upcoming Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, the st
There was a huge kerfuffle recently when Game Informer revealed in a preview that upcoming stealth game Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes only took its staff around two hours to complete. Everyone was just a little bit miffed, and understandably so, as the purportedly paltry prologue to next year's
Who needs fancy press releases when we have Hideo Kojima's Twitter feed? The man is a walking marketing machine, tweeting out picture upon picture of the upcoming Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes, and sending our Soliton hype radars into overdrive. Most recently, he posted a screenshot of the exceedingly endearing
Don't Knack it till you try it
When he's not busy reminding us that he gets to play Metal Gear Solid 5 and we don't, it seems that Hideo Kojima, the director of the acclaimed stealth series, spends his precious spare moments testing out the competition. The professional provocateur recently took critical
Snake? Snake! Snaaaaaake!
Always the tease, Hideo Kojima has posted pictures of the highly anticipated Metal gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes running on PlayStation 4, via his Twitter account. Spotted by DualShockers, one of the pictures, which will have owners of Sony's new generation machine yelling the series' protagonist's name in excitement, s
Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima has revealed that he's looking for an external studio to produce a new version of the original Metal Gear Solid, and he wants it done using the swanky new Fox Engine. Speaking during a closed interview session at E3, Kojima confirmed that he was actively seeking the help of another developer to produce the...
New trailer focuses on gameplay
Solid Snake’s new voice actor will be revealed during Konami’s pre-E3 press conference on 6th June, according to a teaser image posted on NeoGAF. Legendary performer David Hayter waved goodbye to the character earlier in the year, after insinuating that
Hideo Kojima opens up
Legendary voice actor David Hayter will not be reprising his role as Solid Snake (or Big Boss) in Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain because creator Hideo Kojima wants the upcoming adventure to be a “new type” of Metal Gear experience. “It will be a new person, I can’t say who yet,” the luminary said in an...
Doing things differently
Wrapped in bandages like his fake accomplice Joakim Mogren, slightly bonkers video game luminary Hideo Kojima confirmed during his GDC 2013 keynote earlier today that The Phantom Pain and Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes are actually, well,
Legendary developer spills the beans
Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima has taken a break from photographing his lunch, opting to snap a quick shot of his desktop computer instead. While that would be a pretty uneventful occurrence under ordinary circumstances, the Kojima Productions man doesn’t do things by half. As such, it’s no surprise that...
Don't play with your food
We always assumed that money hats came in briefcases packed with one hundred dollar bills, but Sony clearly has different ideas. At its Tokyo headquarters earlier today, the platform holder presented Hideo Kojima with a specially prepared PlayStation 3 bento box, designed to celebrate Metal Gear Solid's recent 25th...
Sneaking in the sunshine
Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes will boast a day and night cycle, according to Eurogamer.net. The website reports that series creator Hideo Kojima divulged the information in an interview after the game's recent unveiling. According to the industry luminary, the day and night cycle will boost replayability, allowing players...
Two different beasts
Project Ogre and the recently revealed Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes are two entirely different projects — and don't let Hideo Kojima hear you say otherwise. Metal Gear's main man huffed on Twitter that he was "sick and tired" of people asking if the games are one and the same during PAX Prime. We gues
Showing off FOX Engine
On Thursday Hideo Kojima, creator of the Metal Gear Solid series, revealed his upcoming title, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes. Today, he has teased us with a ten minute gameplay trailer, sure to get Metal Gear fans excited. While the footage was shown running through a PC, Kojima has stated that the specs are comparable to...
Hideo Kojima has marked Metal Gear’s 25th anniversary with a customary bang, announcing a brand new entry in the series named Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes. Attendees at an overnight birthday bash were wowed by a real-time gameplay demo which showed protagonist Big Boss infiltrating a rain-drenched compound, before offing a...
Out in the wild
The technology behind Hideo Kojima’s next game, Fox Engine, will be revealed at a Metal Gear 25th Anniversary event on 30th August, the legendary developer has announced. Chatting with the PlayStation Blog, Kojima explained that the software is “nearly finished, but the only way to be sure it works is to create a game at the same...
Here we go again
Not content with the handful of other projects he’s already announced, Hideo Kojima has now purportedly confirmed the existence of Metal Gear Solid 5. Speaking with a French magazine, the legendary developer apparently insinuated that there will be a fifth entry in the popular stealth series, and unsurprisingly it will take...
Hideo Kojima is the master of making huge announcements while sharing very little information at all, and the legendary developer has been at it again. Rounding out a Zone of the Enders HD conference in Shinjuku, the Kojima Productions head thought it appropriate to announce the next title in the popular series – and then shut up...
Hideo Kojima knows how to whip up frenzy. Only yesterday did the Metal Gear boss send fans crazy by Tweeting an image of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection running on a PlayStation Vita. Presumably hoping to stay in the headlines, the passionate producer has followed up with some more juicy details about the game. Speaking of the...
Coming along nicely
Now that Metal gear Solid HD Collection has finally reached Europe it's time to start getting excited about the upcoming Vita version, with series mastermind Hideo Kojima recently tweeting a photo of the game up and running on Sony's new portable. The photo only shows a pair of logos so isn't much to get excited about, but the...
One of the saddest thing to emerge this generation has been the decline in diversity
With development budgets spiralling, pushed publishers are stuck to working with what they know in order to avoid facing commercial disaster. That's meant that outside of the emerging download platforms, there's been very little experimentation in the retail space. We can point to a handful of imaginative titles..
