Oh, don't worry, Kojima. Controversy always sells.
During a roundtable review session attended by Videogamer , the MGS guru said his new project, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes , might actually be too "risky" to put on store shelves.
Kojima said he'll be "targeting a lot of taboos" and "a lot of mature themes," which does sound intriguing. But on the downside, he said they're so controversial, that he's not even sure he'll be able to release the game. Furthermore, if it did launch, he's afraid it won't sell because of all those elements. But those who are worried should remember that this guy is a visionary and a perfectionist so he's probably going to see this through to the end: "As a creator I want to take that risk," he said.
He also added that to him, creativity is more important than sales. Well, that's true from the artist's standpoint but sadly, not true from a business standpoint. We'd hate to see this game fail!
