All his fans are eagerly awaiting the announcement of his next project…or should we say, projects?

The last time we heard from Hideo Kojima, he was showing off the power of the NGP (Next Generation Portable) by presenting a demo of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots . It was sort of like a "look what this portable unit can do" situation, and it was nifty . But now, a new rumor has placed the Metal Gear Solid creator in the spotlight once again: according to PSM3 (as noted by PS3Center ), Kojima might announce not one, but two new games at E3 this year:

"MGS maestro Hideo Kojima's got some big announcements for E3 in June: one a quasi-logical step for an existing game, the other… well, we'd be shocked if MGS5 wasn't on the table at some stage. Or under it. In a box."

Yeah, we know some of you are desperately hoping for Zone of the Enders 3 , but Kojima has stated several times that ZoE3 is on the back burner for now. MGS5 does seem like a possibility but we'd also be interested in seeing an overhauled high-def remake of Peace Walker for the PlayStation 3. But whatever Kojima announces at E3 will be sure to garner plenty of attention and generate a ton of excitement.

Definitely a NGP game and probably a ps3 game? MGS5, it's about time!

Whatever it is can't wait to see how he wows us, Kojima knows how to make stuff that always wows you so I expect no less.

Definitely an NGP game for sure.

Don't you guys remember about 3-4 months back when Konami registered something along the lines of: "Next Generation Metal Gear Solid." Hmmm…well I wonder what that could possibly be, and what console that could be for?

As for his other game, I'll expect it to be amazing just as every other game he has made and makes.

Agreed.

NGP version of a previous MGS game.

And MGS5

I CANNOT WAIT FOR E3 NOW!!! 😀

I hope it's a new major MGS for PS3 or an enhanced Peace Walker to PS3 port.

FYI: Dragon Age 2 is $39.99 right now at Amazon. Gold Box Deal.

I agree. I don't own a portable system, and I don't plan on buying one. So I'm really hoping that it is a MGS game for the PS3!!

whatever it is, it will probably be multiplat. that's okay i guess becuase kojima will make sure the ps3 version is the best. i absolutely love the metal gear games. so many great memories playing the 1st game on the ps1. the story, and all that voice acting really pulled me into the world of metal gear. there really wasn't anything quite like it at the time. it cast a huge shadow over my other games, and made them all seem inferior somehow.

Kojima Wish List:

New IP
MGS5
ZOE3

Quasi-logical? Could that mean we will get a MGS4 Subsistence type release with the ever requested trophy support?

Would be nice: MG5 – the last mainline MSG game based on the rise of The Boss. And an MGS1 total remake. All exclusive.

It could be: an MG1 remake and MG2 reVamp. Harhar.

Probably not.

MGS5 for the PS3, and that's exclusively. I want MG to be well, Metal Gear. Not some shoot first, ask questions later type of game that caters to the 360 crowd.

i share your guys hopes that mgs5 remains exclusive, but i don't see how konami can ignore the 360's marketshare. if there was one 3rd party title i'd like to see sony fight for this would be it. it's a proven system seller.

Jawknee

They aren't ignoring the 360's market share. They are releasing Rising. It's not unlike Kojima to try and figure out ways to stay loyal to Sony. You could tell just by the look on his face he wasn't all that excited about being on the MS stage to announce Rising. He was much more enthusiastic about Peace Walker the following day when he announced it would be coming exclusively to the PSP.

Excelsior1

yes i remember that appereance vividly. i shared his pain, and just thought to myself how did it come to this. the fact that rising is on the 360 leads me to believe that if there is a mgs5 it will be on the 360 as well. the only way mgs5 would remain ps3 exclusive is if sony tries to lock it down somehow. that kind of goes against their philosophy, but i can dream. ps3 peacewalker exclusive would be nice with 2 analog sticks.

btw guys, there is a crysis 2 multiplayer demo up on psn. i'm downloading it now to see what all the fuss is about. it may be psn plus only, though.

Or….Maybe Kojima could make the game too big for 360 like he did with MGS4? Remember he complained the even the PS3 wasn't big enough to realize his full vision for MGS4. There are ways. He seems to have enough leverage over at Konami to possibly get things done the way he wants. He's one of their top board members if I remember correctly. Well see though friend. Have hope! 🙂

Jawknee has a good point. The 360 really can't handle the SIZE of Kojima's games. But then again, the Xbox has shown that they aren't afraid to put multiple discs in the box….since they had to do it for freakin' DS2, there's no telling how many discs they would need for a MGS game.

By the way, Otacon's joke on swapping discs in MGS4 was awesome!

Anyone else get the codex message during the fight with mantis, where they crack a joke about psycho mantis? If you reassign the controller to port two you get a message joking about how that won't work like on ps1 haha.

LOL! Indeed. MGS4 is by far my favorite game this generation. I hunted down every single Easter egg in the game.

How many easter eggs r their? Got to beat the game again on Boss Extreme. By the way I heard u get something special if u beat the game on that mode, if so what?

cLoudou

Doesn't MS get royalties from each disc? I would think they would encourage the use of multiple discs.

Jawknee

There are quite a few Easter eggs. I used a guide to find them all. 🙂

In order to get all the goodies for doing the Big Boss Emblem challenge you need to beat the game following this criteria.

– Complete in under 5:00 hours

– Have 0 continues

– Use 0 health items (Rations, Noodles, Regain)

– Have 0 Alerts

– Have 0 kills

– Use of special items (Stealth/Bandana) is forbidden.

– Complete on The Boss Extreme mode

It's quite a task but it's achievable. I managed to do it my first try. Completed it in 4 hours and 57 minutes.

For doing so you get the Big Boss Emblem, the Boss's Patriot Weapon from MGS3, Big Boss FaceCamo and the Big Boss iPod song.

@Clouduo, Good point.

One is probably an HD remake of Peace Walker for PS3 which is fine by me. Love that game. The other is probably an NGP game.

–> MGS5 exclusive to PS3

thank you for the info. it's nice there is a user review, but why is there no main review? you would think a major psp release would be covered here. surely, it deserves a review just as much as prinny:operation panties dood!

btw the crysis 2 demo won't connect. i knew it got pulled in europe, so i was kind of surprised to find it in the psn store here. from what gameplay i did see i wasn't very impressed. everything looks washed out.

PSXE went for almost a year without reviewing any PSP games. Considering the high profile nature of the game though, blame it on Modnation. 😛

Yes, bring over the psp MGS games to PS3 HD.
Also I would love the other MGS games in HD too. MGS5 definately, sounds like there will be a MGS: Rising game coming along too.

I wouldn't mind a new Metal Gear Solid announcement, but it would have to be for the NGP. Announcing another one for the PS3 would just draw attention away rom Rising, and I doubt that that is something that he wants. It would make PS3 owners forget about Rising, allowing the 360 to have the maximum market share and would make Konami think that they're more appreciative of the series, and force the newest title to go multiplatform. Or not.

I still think MGS needs to rest. So, how about one is that 'taboo' project that he kept yarning on about last year? While the other goes to the NGP. Or 'Taboo' and ZoE, or Castlevania: LoS2?
Peace.

i believe castllevannia 2 is already in the works. let the 360 have rising, as long as we got an exclusive mgs5 that would be awesome. risiing is more of spin off, anyways. i'm not so sure a main mg title would spoil mgs rising sales on the ps3. mg fanatics will get it regardless, and surely there are more mg fans on the ps3.

i will try to hold out hope that if it is mgs5 it will remain ps3 exclusive. the only thing that worries me about that is how japanese dev covet the u.s. market. right now there are a lot more 360's in u.s. than ps3's.

My new prediction.

MGS HD Collection for PS3.

New MGS game for NGP.
