My love of this franchise has greatly diminished over the years (though I still think MGS3 was great) mainly due to the horrid writing and never-ending monologues but I figured some here would appreciate this bit of news:

http://media1.gameinformer.com/imagefeed/featured/konami/opmcover.jpg

Hideo Kojima is back behind the wheel for the next installment in the Metal Gear Solid franchise.

First details of the project are revealed in the upcoming issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine UK, where Kojima himself discusses plans for Metal Gear Solid 5 and the recently teased Project Ogre.

The issue hits newsstands on November 29, though excerpts from the interview are said to be available online sometime next week.

Link: http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2011/11/17/metal-gear-solid-5-confirmed.aspx

So the question is... will it be coming for PS3 or PS4?

EDIT:

Here's the full storry CVG originally broke,

'We'll probably have to make Metal Gear Solid 5,' admits Kojima
"But what that will be, we have no idea," creator tells OPM
(http://www.computerandvideogames.com/326823/metal-gear-solid-5-well-probably-have-to-make-it-admits-kojima/)Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima has admitted his studio will "probably have to make" Metal Gear Solid 5 "at some point".


Speaking in the latest issue of Official PlayStation Magazine UK - on sale November 29 - the Kojima Productions man said of MGS5: "I think we'll probably have to make it at some point, but what that will be, we have no idea".

Once again downplaying his involvement in any future Metal Gear project, Kojima added: "As far as my involvement in the project is concerned, [it] probably won't be as much as it was with MGS1 - maybe I can do just one stage! For MGS1 I made the maps myself, laid out the enemy routes myself, did everything hands-on - that level I can't do again."

Of course, any fan worth his salt will point out that's exactly what Hideo said about MGS4 - and then he made it anyway.

The creator explained: "I intended to take it to a certain point and then hand it off, but that didn't work, because it's hard to convey the concept to other people then have them take the reins and carry on and preserve that vision."

His solution then is to not get involved at all, he said. "That's why it's easier to have them come up with everything from the start and then take it to the end."

The Kojima issue of OPM UK is out on November 29 and subs issues should be going out next week.

You can now get Official PlayStation Magazine UK on Apple Newsstand, either as a single issue or through a 3, 6 and 12 month subscriptions available. You can also get Official PlayStation Magazine UK on Zinio as well, so you are full covered for all your digital reading needs. And the paper edition's also available in the shops and through a number of subscription offers.

Which part? The cinematic that led up to the final boss fight or the actual final boss fight? If the former, it was a pretty badass moment amidst a sea of mediocrity. If the latter, the only emotion I felt was disappointment and irritation because of how crappy it was and how horrible the control scheme was. :shrug:

Metal Gear Solid V is Kojima's first next-gen FOX Engine game, developer reveals (update: video)

Kojima Productions head Hideo Kojima this morning announced that The Phantom Pain and Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes combined is actually Metal Gear Solid V, the first next-gen game from Kojima Productions running on its powerful FOX Engine. The news was revealed today during a FOX Engine panel at the Game Developers Conference. Kojima announced the combination of the previously announced concepts in a dramatic fashion, with his head wrapped in bandages, presumably as his alter ego Joakim Mogren. They provided a sneak peek trailer at the game's opening sequence, where Snake is attempting to escape from a hospital -- the trailer previously teased in late 2012. As FOX Engine is a next-gen platform, we're assuming that the game is heading to next-gen consoles, but Kojima's not saying anything solid just yet.

Update: GamesHQMedia managed to snag a trailer of the game, which we've embedded below.

Ground Zeroes and Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain are separate games despite what the report says.

That's from some months ago. I'm amazed it wasn't posted here yet. I'm still loving this franchise. Really liked GZ. Wasn't worth the price it came out w/ but whatever sale I got it from on PSN made it worth it, granted... it was for my PS3.

Apparently if you die a lot or struggle in a certain area of the game... it will give you an option to make it easier at a price of sorts. Big Boss will be forced to wear a chicken hat should you go for the easy option. looks like it even crosses over into the cutscenes too.. Seems like he made it to help out the inexperienced players.

<iframe width="853" height="480" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/yHt9MHkVWXM" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

I'm reading though that it possibly doesn't affect achievements/trophies which is kind of sad too. I usually prefer things like to lock those things down when you get an option like that.

RocShemp
01-03-15, 07:56 PM
Didn't one of the Devil May Cry games do this first? Not the chicken hat but unlocking a easy mode for players who demonstrate they really suck at the game.

Yes. You had to die like 3 times in the normal mode. Then you would accept it but never be able to move up the difficulty ever even in the new game plus mode. Some other games have done it too. I can't remember which ones though.

I remember that and thinking that that was funny and it pissed me off too cuz the game was calling you out on you sucking. Fuck. DMC was an awesome challenge. DMC3 rocked like a motherfucker though. Fuck. My fav DMC.

It's good to finally have the release date for this installment. Hopefully Kojima will tie everything together, nice and neat, leaving everything in The Phantom Pain to tie directly into the original Metal Gear chapter.

I would love to have that limited edition console, but I always seem to own my PlayStation (whichever generation) before they come out with limited edition ones...and I am not buying one just to store, unfortunately.

When we spoke to Kojima recently, he was keen to emphasise Metal Gear Solid V will be the last entry in the series and, if this is any indication, it certainly will be for the man who started it all.

KONAMI RESPONDS TO QUERIES OVER HIDEO KOJIMA LEAVING RUMOURS

http://www.ign.com/articles/2015/03/19/kojima-reportedly-leaves-konami-konami-responds

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/kojima-expected-to-leave-konami-after-mgs5-inside-/1100-6426024/

Gamespot is saying he's done after the game ships.

A fallout between Kojima Productions and its owning publisher, Konami, has led to senior staff at the studio being restricted access to corporate internet, emails, and phone, GameSpot understands.

Along with the restricted communications, key developers at the studio, such as Hideo Kojima, will now have limited opportunities to lend their appearance to promotions of the studio’s upcoming game, Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain.

Power struggles between Kojima Productions and Konami have convinced the publisher to make drastic changes, including amending the employee status of its Metal Gear team. Some senior staff at the studio, including Kojima, now essentially work as contractors, not permanent employees.

The extraordinary measures were revealed by a source within the studio, speaking to GameSpot on the condition of anonymity. The person explained that, once the Phantom Pain project is finished, in all likelihood the management at the studio will disband.

"After we finish MGSV, Mr. Kojima and upper management will leave Konami. They said their contract ends in December," the source claimed.

Yeah, I'm a bit worried about being lost as well. I played through the original MGS when it first came out on the original Playstation. After that, I've only played bits of the others but never finished any of them. My plan is to play through Ground Zeros just to get familiar with the controls, but I don't think I'll be able to follow the story too well.

The funny thing is I've been going through some of my PS3 games and boxing them up for storage, and came across a sealed copy of this. I don't know when I bought it, but since it was a GameStop exclusive, I guess I might have picked it up when they were on clearance or something. I was debating on even opening it up at this point.

The only negative thing I've heard is that instead of two huge open worlds (Afghanistan & Africa), it could've benefited with some variety had it been three slightly smaller worlds instead.

As great as these reviews are, I'm a little worried that the open ended-ness and clever AI of this game will make it REALLY hard for me to complete any mission. I'm worried I might rage-quit it really fast. Then again since I spent $80 on the LE, maybe I'll feel more obligated to stick with it.

I have a friend who is super geeked about this game. So much so I ordered it.

I started Ground Zeros last night, so I should be finished with that soon and ready for this one.

Lol at how he's posing it at the last minute. Obviously a game store since there's like a bunch of copies of the game (among others) behind him.

I wonder what lucky person will be picking up their "brand new but opened to prevent theft" special edition from Gamestop?

I know a few people that work at GameStop that said they aren't getting the CE's in store.

What a mature person.

The first thing I would've done would be to make that hand give the finger.

Been playing MGS 3 for the first time. After I finish 3 and GZ I'll be all caught up.

Maybe it's the setting but I'm just not getting sucked in like the previous ones. It's easy to get lost since every area looks the same :lol:

There any benefit of getting this on one platform over another? (PC Aside)

1080p on PS4 vs. 900p on XB1.

What is up w/ XB1 and not going full resolution on some (if not a lot) of games? I remember it was a huge bitch fest towards them for not doing that on some games.

Isn't that because the Xb1 is just slightly less "powerful" than the PS4, that, and the PS4's slightly easier to program for?

Basically the GPU is less powerful on the Xbox One, cut and dry. On PCs, it's like comparing the 8700 model of something to the 8750 model of something.

Frankly, 900p vs 1080p isn't a big difference and a solid framerate is way more important. Both appear to be locked at 60fps for a majority of the game with no issues, Xbox One cutscenes run at 50 fps, PS4 cutscenes are locked at 30 fps due to higher end shading that's going on, digital foundry has a write-up.

They both look and run excellent.

ironically, in the last gen.. it was PS3 being stronger but harder to work with.

From what I experience for multiplatform games, I always went w/ 360 almost as a given. Cuz it just worked all around better but the PS3 was a better system still. It's exclusives were all kinds of awesome. Better than 360.

I preordered the CE awhile back and it was scheduled to be delivered tomorrow. Fast forward to an hour ago and I realize that my payment method needs to be revised because my debit card was on a possibly compromised list a couple of months ago and I have a different one now.

Scheduled delivery: September 3rd :mad: :(

Not played a MGS game in years now, but picking this up today. On the fence about a second title to also buy. Mad Max looks a lot of fun, but mixed reviews. Also read a few reviews for Dying Light and that looked interesting. I think Max might have it.

I guess the PC version is just the Steam app that makes you download the game through that - the game is not on the PC disc at all. Fucking Konami...

Got my CE today. The arm is really cool and detailed. The steelbook looks really good and has the exclusive blu ray inside. There wasn't an insert inside for all of the bonus items, but Best Buy emailed a code today. So overall, not bad for $80 (with a $10 reward cert coming soon). I'm downloading the patch now and hope to dive in soon.

Same for me. That code wasn't the CE content though. I assume the bonus voucher is in the game disc (along with the map). I haven't opened that one yet. The Steelbook is really, really nice though.

is the gameplay very similar to, if not exactly like Ground Zeroes?

Nope. It's only the map. I'm pretty sure it's the code from Best Buy, because it says I have 16 items now, which match the back of the box.

The gameplay as far as running, aiming, shooting, etc... is just like Ground Zero. We've been playing since about 10 this morning and are at about 4%. Much harder than Ground Zero due to the areas being so big and a lot more soldiers to fight/sneak by/shoot...

I played the prologue and so far I'm impressed. I got to the open land and am working on extracting some guy. Love the tactics. Unlike anything I've played before.

We also got the guide book from Piggyback and it is gigantic but well worth the $15 due to how much information it provides.

Played a version a Buddy had while I wait for my CE on Thursday. Let me say that the game is excellent. Definitely deserving of the 10.

The prologue was weird as shit, though. Was that a young Pyscho Mantis? Was the fire dude the Col. from Snake Eater? what was real and what wasn't?

A few Pros so far:

You can refill your Fulton supplies mid mission. You don't know how annoying it was in Peace Walker trying to extract dudes and you run out of Fulton so you have to pick and choose, or you miss a hostage because of it.

The chicken hat is funny. I tried it once :lol:

The music tapes are a nice touch. Speaking of tapes, I love how you can listen to the briefing and still play. In PW, you had to stare at the static screen while listening to the tapes.

Cons:

The game has to eventually end I suppose.

Oh and the Ocelet/Kaz tapes are great.....a hug and a kiss, and a big F you. :lol:
(not really a spoiler since it's on one of the tapes at the beginning of the game)

Does this take place after MGS 3? With the cassettes I saw in trailers I'm guessing 80's?

It does. According to Wikipedia:

1974 – Peace Walker
1975 – Ground Zeroes
1984 – The Phantom Pain

I only got to play for about an hour (still in the Hospital) Holy crap that shit was fucked up. When it was announced as an open world metal gear, I thought we'd lose the weirdness and cutscenes that make a MGS game great. Glad it's still intact :)
