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...
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...
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...
Seeing is believing
Hideo Kojima has opened the doors to the new Kojima Productions for the first time, revealing the futuristic studio space where Death Stranding will be made. The company, which the auteur founded in late 2015 following his departure from Konami, is almost ready to begin full production on its PlayStation 4 exclusive project –...
Hideo Kojima has departed Konami – and he's bringing all of the top talent with him. The new Kojima Productions, which will launch Death Stranding exclusively on the PlayStation 4 as its first project, has quietly been fultoning high-ranked employees and adding them to its office. We already know that art director Yoji Shinkawa,...
And it's now called Decima
The mystery surrounding Death Stranding's engine has finally been revealed: it'll run on Guerrilla Games' proprietary software. The tech, which is also being used for Horizon: Zero Dawn, has now been given an official name: Decima. It's the latest version of the engine that previously powered the Killzone games. This...
If you thought that the so-called "logo movie" was self-indulgent, then get a load of this: Ludens, the skeletal space-explorer said to represent Kojima Productions' "frontier spirit", is getting a slew of action figures. A reminder: this character has nothing to do with Death Stranding or any other game – it's lit
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...
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...
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...
To say there's no scepticism surrounding PlayStation VR would be a lie. Every time we write about the peripheral – or virtual reality in general – it comes under some criticism from both readers and the wider web alike. But speaking with Polygon, ex-Metal Gear Solid maker Hideo Kojima has suggested that the cynicism is...
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...
"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...
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...
Gamers around the globe are ditching their Quiet drawings in order to pen a new character: Kojima Productions' logo. We've only seen the medieval skull's head thus far, but studio founder Hideo Kojima did note in a tweet that the company has imagined the character's body as well. Rather than reveal it, however, he said that he'd prefer...
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...
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...
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain had a fairly substantial showing at E3 2015, but the hype train stops for nobody, so Konami has now released an equally extensive new trailer for the title. Cleverly, the clip sees Snake attempting the same
If you needed a little more proof that P.T. is quite possibly the greatest survival horror game in over a decade, then this clip should do the trick. In it, Twitch user CryoSphereD pauses the Silent Hills demo in order to take a break and interact with her viewers. However, after about two minutes, the release decides that she's had...
Powered by PlayStation 4
We already got to sample a huge chunk of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain earlier in the week, but developer Kojima Productions has followed up with a farm fresh snippet running on the PlayStation 4. This shows our eye-patched protagonist Big Boss scouting out an enemy facility during the day – and getting embroiled in...
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...
Apparently, he wasn't even asked
David Hayter, better known as the voice of Solid Snake and Big Boss, will not be returning to lend his larynx to whoever that is in Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. The popular performer confirmed the news on Twitter, telling disappointed fans that he had a “good run” as the character. Yeah, we’re welling...
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...
Moby Dick Studio executive Joakim Mogren steps out of the shadows
An interview with Moby Dick Studio’s bandaged CEO Joakim Mogren has confirmed that The Phantom Pain is running on the FOX Engine, the new development platform from Kojima Productions. As teased yesterday, the so-called executive appeared on an episode of GTTV last night, where he i
We don't know whether to laugh or cry
Remember when GTTV host Geoff Keighley revealed that he was about to interview the CEO of Moby Dick Studio, Joakim Mogren? Well, here’s a picture of the supposed Swedish developer behind The Phantom Pain – covered in, er, bandages. Could this story possibly get any more ridiculous? We certainly hope s
Mysterious chief executive officer Joakim Mogren to appear on GTTV
The narrative surrounding Moby Dick Studio’s mysterious The Phantom Pain is more complicated than the plot of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. The title was announced late last year during the Spike VGAs, but was promptly blown wide open. Eagle-eyed online users noticed...
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...
Columbia Pictures has snapped up the rights to produce a movie based on Kojima Productions’ wildly popular Metal Gear Solid franchise. Announced at an anniversary event overnight – which also played host to the reveal of a new game – the flick will be produced by Avi Arad of Spider-Man fame. It’s unclear how much involvement...
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...
As expected, Hideo Kojima has revealed that Platinum Games' upcoming Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be playable at E3 in June
The luminary revealed the tid-bit in a roundtable featured in Famitsu magazine. He was joined by Platinum Games' CEO Tatsuya Minami and producer Atsushi Inaba. The interview touched upon how the collaborative process between Platinum Games and Kojima Productions was..
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..
Hideo Kojima's next game -- the mysterious Project Ogre -- will be an open world title according to the creator himself
In a candid chat with CNN, the Kojima Productions boss revealed that he's eager to make something very free" after spending years on the cinematic Metal Gear Solid series. The kind of game Im making is some game that has a very wide entrance, a very open entrance, he..
Hideo Kojima's being Hideo Kojima again
The cryptic gaming visionary has casually dropped a couple of screenshots showing off the developer's new Fox Engine — one of which is apparently from a prototype of his upcoming game, Project Ogre. The first image shows a crouching soldier, while the second focuses on a couple of ladies. We're hoping Project Ogre pertains to the second image rather than..
For as long as there have been video games, fans have demanded Zone Of The Enders 3
Alright, so maybe it's not quite that extreme, but few would deny that the next entry in Hideo Kojima's mech combat series is not heavily anticipated. Sadly, Kojima has admitted that his studio just doesn't have the resources to produce the game right now. But the designer has teased that the company's new Fox..
If you're willing to ignore The Last Of Us, the reannouncement of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance was easily the biggest story at this year's VGAs
The challenged title was first announced back in 2009, before heading into hiding for a good couple of years. That's because staff at Kojima Productions lost sight of the project, and the game was promptly (and secretly) cancelled. But the game was..
Some of you will have already seen the latest trailer for Metal Gear Solid: Rising -- now known as Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
It leaked earlier in the evening after all. But if you haven't seen it yet, you're in luck. Now you can watch it officially. Beware though, there's some seriously crazy footage embedded within. With Platinum Games at the helm, Metal Gear's gone a little heavy metal in..
Phew, talk about quiet Saturday evenings
A brand new trailer for Metal Gear Solid: Rising has leaked online ahead of its expected debut during the VGAs. You could say, Metal Gear's back with a vengeance — or revengeance, huh? That's right, the ripper (Raiden) is back in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. The game's being developed by Platinum Games in association with Kojima Productions. Are you..
You didn't expect the creator of Metal Gear, Hideo Kojima, to do things by half did you? The Kojima Productions gaffer has shown off his new business cards on Twitter
They are made of metal. Yup.
With Metal Gear Solid: Rising set to gets its big coming out party at next month's VGAs, series creator Hideo Kojima has told Official PlayStation Magazine that series veterans might not initially fall in love with the game's new direction
If somebody thinks I love Snake and just really wants traditional stealth gameplay and that experience, then it may be hard to get into Rising, he told..
Hideo Kojima has hinted that there will grudgingly be a Metal Gear Solid 5
Speaking as part of the magazine's upcoming cover feature, the industry legend said: "I think well probably have to make it at some point, but what that will be, we have no idea." But in trademark style, Kojima played down his involvement with the hypothetical project: As far as my involvement in the project is..
Official PlayStation Magazine UK has been hinting at something Metal Gear related for some time -- and now it's finally spilled the beans

One day, someone will write a book about the development of Metal Gear Solid: Rising
The game — which is set to get a re-announcement in the next issue of Official PlayStation Magazine — has been missing in action for a good couple of years now. And the plot continues to thicken. Shugenobu Matsyuama has announced his resignation as producer of the project, confirming that he has moved onto..
After months of silence, Konami is finally preparing to re-announce Metal Gear Solid: Rising
The game was last seen at E3 a couple of years ago — but hope of a re-reveal emerged late last month when the UK edition of the Official PlayStation Magazine teased some form of announcement. "The truth about Metal Gear Solid: Rising will finally be revealed at the 2011 VGAs by Hideo Kojima,"..
The British arm of the Official PlayStation Magazine is teasing something big
And stealthy. In fact editor Ben Wilson can't seem to hold his excitement about the feature, closing his editor's note with the comments: "I promise you that next month is an equally significant issue in our history. I desperately want to say more, but really mustnt. Other than this: turn to page 81 for a stealthy..
Konami has finally confirmed that it's delaying the European release of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection after heavy speculation
The game — which was previously due out in November — will now launch on February 3rd in Europe. Nice of Konami to clear that up at last. The game's set to launch in two guises in Japan: Peace Walker HD will come first on November 10th, followed by MGS2 and MGS3 on..
One of the best PlayStation Portable games of all time is preparing for its HD re-release, and we've got a couple of minutes of footage to celebrate
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD will launch as part of a Metal Gear Solid HD Collection in the West. Unfortunately Konami's being extremely coy about release details. But you can still stare longingly at the gameplay footage after the jump.
We're not sure who's going to make sense of the current storyline, but Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima hopes that the stealth series will continue after his death
The 48-year old (!!!) video game legend told an audience at the University of Southern California that he will continue to make Metal Gear Solid titles for as long as fans want them. "First of all, I just want to say that as..
The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection may not be an entirely new product, but it's still an important one
You didn't think Konami was going to side-step collector's edition for such an anticipated release, did you? No, us neither. The limited edition package includes custom artwork by lead artist Yoji Shinkawa and a 248-page 'The Art Of Metal Gear Solid' artbook. Naturally you'll get the game too.
Hideo Kojima has revealed that Zone Of The Enders 3 was in development
The Metal Gear man wouldn't go into more details about the unannounced title, but did confirm that he intends to produce the title at some point in the future. With Zone Of The Enders 3 put on hold for now, fans can at least look forward to the Zone Of The Enders HD Collection, which Kojima confirmed is due out on PS3 between..
Konami's confirmed that the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection will infiltrate its way onto Japanese store shelves on November 23rd
The news emerged from Konami's stage show event earlier this evening. Konami also revealed that the PlayStation 3 version of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection will include a download voucher for the original Metal Gear...
Hideo Kojima has confirmed that both the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection and Zone Of The Enders HD Collection will launch on the PlayStation Vita next year
Kojima also confirmed that he's working on a brand new, original title for both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. "It will take a while" for us to learn more about the title though, Kojima clarified.
Excited about the forthcoming Metal Gear Solid HD Collection and Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception? Japanese gamers will be able to wear their anticipation with a couple of brand new, uniquely styled DualShock 3 controllers due for release in the East from early November
The Metal Gear Solid controller will see release in North America minus the Kojima tie-in. In the US it will be simply known as the..
Being a Japanese focused PlayStation Portable game, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker's co-operative mode was all about social multiplayer
But the game's conversion to PlayStation 3 — via the upcoming Metal Gear Solid HD Collection — will side-step the need to get up close and personal, re-routing the game's co-operative multiplayer through the PSN. Kojima confirmed the news earlier in the week,..
Konami's released a video walkthrough of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater in high-definition
The game's due to release as part of Kojima Productions' upcoming Metal Gear Solid HD Collection on PlayStation 3. The game looks silky smooth running in HD at 60 frames-per-second. Fans of the original Metal Gear Solid titles will be delighted to see the game remastered, while newcomers are in for a treat..
To be fair, the easiest way to complete Konami's Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is to add in MGS4 and a copy of the original PlayStation classic
You can make the package sweeter by tossing it all in a steel tin and saying, "Seventy quid, please." And that's pretty much exactly what Zavvi has done. The Metal Gear Solid Ultimate HD Collection is limited to just 4,000 copies worldwide, and..
Those picking up the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection in Japan or the West will find one major difference
In Japan you'll get a download code for the original Metal Gear Solid title, while in the West you'll get an HD remake of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. We think that's a fair trade. (Right, Japan?) Thankfully, both regional variants will come with Metal Gear Solid 3 'Subsistence', meaning the..
Tweets from the legendary Hideo Kojima have revealed that the high-definition remake of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker will run at 60FPS on PlayStation 3
"60 frames per second in HD It's the best! Say peace!" said Kojima in one Tweet alongside images of the game. The high-definition version of Peace Walker is set to be joined by Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater on..
Kojima has a dream in which all of his future games will be playable on the move or at home
PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita make that dream a reality. In fact, Kojima is so excited by the possibility that he's created his own terminology for the technology: transfarring. Speaking on the most recent Kojima Productions podcast, the visionary revealed that every single one of his future titles,..
Kojima Productions' E3 website has revealed one interesting factoid about Konami's upcoming Metal Gear Solid and Zone Of The Enders HD Collections: both will be available digitally via the PlayStation Store
The website also includes more detail about Kojima's "Transfarring" technology — which allows your Metal Gear Sold: Peace Walker progress to be transferred between PSP and PS3 —..
Konami's clearly been taking a long, hard look at Sony's "Classics HD" line and the cash its been roping in for the platform holder
Eager to get a piece of the pie, Konami has announced three HD collections from the PS2 era: Metal Gear Solid, Zone Of The Enders and Silent Hill. The Metal Gear Solid Collection will feature Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and..
Ah Hideo Kojima
We like to imagine his life is just as complex and convoluted as a good Metal Gear Solid narrative. The video game visionary has posted an image on Twitter alongside a statement that he is recording for his new project. The image shows two monitors with an unclear figure on the screen. What does it all mean? We'll let someone else get to the bottom of that. Kojima followed up the..
Hideo Kojima has ruled out and confirmed a series of rumours in a quick-fire interview on the latest Kojima Productions podcast
The news, picked up by Andriasang, rules out the possibility of a Metal Gear Solid 5 announcement, while also discrediting rumours of an MGS4 port for NGP. In addition, Kojima used the quick-fire question round to confirm that he has "something big" planned for..
Kojima Productions has promised surprises as part of Konami's pre-E3 event next Thursday
Speaking in the studio's official podcast, host Sean Eyestone mentioned that company has "something special" to announce before the big event in L.A.. "We are going to have a few announcements at E3 and we have some surprises, so be looking forward to that, he said. And we have something..
Let's be honest, we all knew it was probably coming
A report on JVN overnight is suggesting that Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker will be made available for PlayStation 3 via the recently announced PSP Remasters Series. Apparently the announcement will be made at E3, presumably kicking off a bumper evening of Sony and Kojima announcements. Presumably...
Something fishy is afoot
Metal Gear Solid: Rising is all about series-punchbag-come-series-badass Raiden. But the character's voice actor doesn't know a thing about the game. I am completely in the dark. I have no answers. I have no idea, a flustered Quinton Flynn told TheGamingLiberty in an interview, explaining that he'd not been contacted by Konami nor Kojima Productions about the game. I..
If the Internet's wishing for one thing, and it's for some kind of Hideo Kojima x PlayStation E3 gangbang
As well as expecting the announcement of a new NGP and PlayStation 3 Metal Gear project, forum goers are also anticipating some kind of PlayStation 3 Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. The discussion stems from a PSM3 magazine rumour which suggests "a major PlayStation franchise" is..
Konami's promoted legendary developer, Hideo Kojima, to the rank of corporate officer a press release has confirmed
The promotion makes Kojima one of the top bodies at the publisher, and rightly so. Kojima's been behind some of the best games throughout the PlayStation's lifespan, including the Metal Gear Solid and Zone Of The Enders titles. Kojima's currently rumoured to be working on an NGP title..
.. Well, kudos to Konami for supporting their game we suppose. We'd forgotten Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots even had an online component, but here's a new patch for that very mode. The update's able to detect "fraudulent" connections which may slow the game down. Of course, the bigger question is whether anyone's actually still playing Metal Gear Online. Konami patch notes:..
Hideo Kojima, ever the tease, has started Tweeting about something he's deeming the "devil project"
We've absolutely no idea what it is, but we've included a series of messages from the Metal Gear mastermind for your convenience: Have to give priority to another lines scenario etc., so now I cannot work on the devil project and writing. Worked on my devil project a bit after..
Sony's new handheld, the NGP, is an absolute power-house
During Sony's PlayStation Meeting in Tokyo this morning, the platform holder brought Hideo Kojima on-stage to demonstrate PlayStation 3 title, Metal Gear Solid 4, on the portable system. "There's no announcement of a new title today," Kojima confessed, "But I'd like to talk about the future perspective." Kojima went on to..
A high-definition remake of the original Metal Gear Solid trilogy is coming to PlayStation 3 if reports in Official PlayStation Magazine are to be believed
The magazine cites "insider whispers" as the source for the story, stating that the "first three" Metal Gear Solid games are set to be reborn on the PlayStation 3. It would be a monumental release for the PS3, especially if..
Konami's been teasing Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow's first DLC pack, "Reverie", for a while now on the game's Facebook page
The site teases: Tick tock Its time for another glimpse into the upcoming Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Reverie DLC. What might Gabriel try to change with this time machine? As is the case for all of Lords Of Shadow, the artwork's yummy.
Proving once again that Solid Snake is the video game industry's biggest whore, the Konami mascot is set to make an appearance in Monster Hunter Portable 3rd
Armed with a giant sword, Snake will be playable in Japan from January 22nd.</em>
What does the "Next Generation Metal Gear Solid Series" entail anyway? Is it a PlayStation 4 title, or is it just a franchise reboot on current platforms? We've no idea, but a series of job listings on Konami's website mention the phrase
The job-listings are plenty, seeking planners, level designers, scripters and more. Kojima Productions are currently working on Metal Gear Solid: Rising for..
Metal Gear Solid: Rising was originally due next year
Unfortunately, that's no longer the case. Kotaku reports that the game's been pushed back into 2012. The multiplatform title replaces Metal Gear Solid's traditional "Tactical Espionage Action" for a new breed of "Lightning Bolt Action" fronted by the game's protagonist, Raiden. The hook is the game's "precision..
Metal Gear Solid 4 pre-dated trophies
Given its status as one of the best games in the PlayStation 3's library, many fans have been clamouring for a trophy update ever since Sony announced the rewards system. Despite frequent reports to the contrary, Metal Gear Solid 4 has never received trophies. That could be about to change. PlayStation LifeStyle's snapped a photo of the Greatest Hits edition of..
There's an issue in the PlayStation 3 version of Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow
Some users have reported a problem in which save data gets corrupted. The game asks you to hit the X button to "overwrite" and bam, just like that your save is gone. But Konami's on the problem. The publisher reassured fans that "a patch for the PS3 save issue affecting Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is..
According to a report on Eurogamer Spain, MercurySteam's already talking about a follow-up to Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow
The soundtrack composer for the first game has told Spanish radio: If you liked the first , hope that the second is even more spectacular. We're going to assume it's already in the early stages of development. The engine's in place, yo. Sequel is good to go.
It struck us pretty early on, that we're going to be way more engrossed in Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow's story than its gameplay
From a narrative perspective, the game's cinematics and voice-acting are top-notch. Even the dark, European gothic style is inviting. But the gameplay doesn't quite live up to the presentation's precedent. The demo opens with a medieval town eclipsed in a tropical storm..
Sony's confirmed that European PlayStation Plus members will get a neat little bonus as part of their PlayStation Plus subscription today
Members will get access to the Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow demo a week before it launches for everyone next week. The new Castlevania title's due in October and is being overlooked by Metal Gear Solid's Hideo...
While Hideo Kojima had a game present at this year's Tokyo Game Show, it wasn't his game
Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow may well have been one of the best titles on display, but it's being developed by MercurySteam, and Kojima is only overseeing the development. That said, the Kojima Productions boss would like to announce something of his own at next year's show. The Metal Gear man Tweeeted: I..
Sony's confirmed that Metal Gear Solid: Rising will be playable in full stereoscopic 3D on the PlayStation 3
It should make the art of melon slicing every inch more exciting with the added dimension. Now all we need is a PlayStation Move announcement. How about it Kojima?
What's the one thing you've always wanted in Metal Gear Solid 4? Trophies, right
Yeah, us too. 3D support would just be the icing on the cake, right? Totally. Well it nearly happened. In fact, agonisingly Kojima's revealed that he "wanted" to release a "Complete" version of the title. Sadly, he just doesn't have the time. We know. I wanted to make a Complete Version with..
Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow Of The Colossus perhaps? It might lack originality - seems like Castlevania's going to work with the formula of a number of PlayStation greats - but it looks stunning all the same
There are more shots over at Kotaku.
Metal Gear Solid: Rising is a different type of Metal Gear game
It replaces seasoned protagonist Snake with Raiden, and switches tranquilizers for samurai swords. When all's said and done though, it is still a Metal Gear game. And that means that the stealth elements will remain in tact. In fact, according to Rising's producer, you'll be able to play through the game without ever needing to kill..
Konami's dated their Dracula slaying foray into the God Of War genre, by whipping Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow with an October 5th and 7th release date for America and Europe respectively
Konami's added that the game will be presented with two DLC packs after release, both of which will further the game's narrative. Seems a bit dodgy to us, that. Still, Konami's touting that there's 20 hours of..
Presumably peeved at having to share the headlines with Ken Levine, Hideo Kojima's teased some "big" news of his own on Twitter [cheers Andriasang] -- basically, he's got something to say this weekend
The Metal Gear man revealed on Twitter that despite being ill, he wants to rest up and recover in time for the weekend, and his "big" pre-TGS announcement. He was keen to clarify that said..
It's been a while since we last posted about the XBOX 360's space limitations
Last time, Capcom's Jun Takeuchi basically conceded that content had been cut from Lost Planet 2 (both XBOX 360 and PlayStation 3) to get the game on a DVD. It sucks, because those of us with PlayStation 3s are often suffering due to the 360's storage limitations. Ever played a game and wondered why the cut-scenes are so..
Hideo Kojima has revealed that he believes Japan are in a "losing" battle due to the recent boom of Western games development
The Metal Gear man said that he feels the younger generation of Japanese game developers have lost their motivation. He came to conclusion after watching a TV documentary about foreign exchange students who were passionate about the manga industry. The game industry is..
A Nikkei interview (picked up by Andriasang) has revealed that Konami CEO, Fumiaki Tanaka, aims to sell about 3 million copies of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
