That darn countdown has started again and this time, something very specific has been added: a revealing picture.
If you check the teaser site for Hideo Kojima's new project, the countdown is back and after you wait a few seconds, the picture you see here pops up. At first, there was some argument concerning the character's identity, but the common consensus now is that it's Big Boss from the Metal Gear Solid franchise. Now, at last check , we had a "5" accompanied by an "E" and a "3," both of which are fairly telling and even obvious. The addition of a lowercase "e" got people thinking it was actually an "S" for "Snake," which prompted even more discussion. But now that we have this picture, it's difficult to see it as anything else: there must be a new MGS in the works; the only question that remains is what exactly is it, and what are the intended platforms? The good news for PlayStation loyalists is that the upcoming X360 Famitsu issue has no mention of the game, and Kojima has never wanted to put his games on Microsoft platforms. But we'll just have to wait and see. E3 drops next week and hopefully, everything will be all cleared up and we can start anticipating the next big PS3 (or PSP) exclusive!
As if you haven't thought about this enough already, right? But hey, feel free to speculate and discuss to your heart's content. Absolutely nothing wrong with that. 😉
