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.

.....that man..just can't leave MGS alone. And I'm going to fucking freak out about it and get emotional like i did w/ MGS4. That CQC fight at the end...man....it was emotional. damn music.

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.

I got GZ for PC and am loving it. Lots to do in that little sandbox. I can't wait to get my hands on TPP.

Solid Snake
01-03-15, 07:43 PM
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 seems like after months of rumors, it's finally true and legit, but you never know with Kojima.

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.

The Collector's Edition is up for preorder on Best Buy. I threw in a preorder for the hell of it since Amazon's been sold out and they are going for about $200 on eBay. Figured $79.99 with GCU and I can always cancel if needed.

03-19-15, 02:14 PM
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.

I've heard that bullshit before. :lol:

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.
