  • Good. Konami have lost the talent that held those franchises together. Time to license their IPs out.

    • @Gentle Rain I don't give a fuck about "crunch". Every employee should be willing to do that but this channel seems to complain about it a lot while painting Kojima as a God and savior.

    • @Don Draper what you going about crunch now? There isn't a single AAA game dev company in existence that doesn't DO crunch time. And yes some reputation, they skyrocketed with Kojima. They spended big, got banked big when the results came in and came in a reputation with it. In the end all of it was worth it.

      Gentle RainGentle Rain3 dager siden
    • @Gentle Rain Some reputation. Tomokazu Fukushima seems to have loved fixing Kojima's miscalculations. I am sure no "crunch" was involved there. He drained the division to nothing due to his ego. Everything had to be Kojima Productions focused. What he was doing wasn't popular enough to reach a new audience unless they had a prerequisite of playing Metal Gear Solid back in 1998. I do suppose this isn't all Kojima's fault. Konami did make the mistake of allowing it to happen. No company should have allowed the ... _talent_ (for lack of a better term) be that involved with the corporation.

      Don DraperDon Draper3 dager siden
    • @Don Draper Bankrupted them? More like went overbudget to give the company a REPUTATION. Sounds like a deal to me. Konami has been swimming in dollars since then thanks SOLELY to Hideo Kojima.

      Gentle RainGentle Rain3 dager siden
    • @Gentle Rain I get that people like Metal Gear but it's fans were waning. I get that people wanted his Silent Hills but for it's past critical acclaim, that property can't withstand a corporation cuz it's niche and considering how Kojima and del Toro love going on spending sprees on a company credit card, Konami was right. This was Kojima's fault.

  • The fact that they didn't see this coming is beyond me. Like what do you expect when you fire the only big developer you have, while on top of that not even trying to reboot some of your older beloved series. It kind of goes to show how stupid the higher up at Konami are, like all they had left was pes soccer aka fifa's little brother that no one cares about.

  • I'm pretty disappointed this is going to be a PS5 exclusive. I have an Xbox One X and have been playing the Metal Gear Solid games for about a year. MGS 3 is now one of my favorite single player games ever and I'm still playing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Why would Konami shaft people who enjoy their games on other consoles? I understand Metal Gear Solid was an exclusive to PlayStation, but now that it's on other platforms it just feels like PS is throwing their weight around to get more sales.

  • It'll be interesting to see the new Silent Hill games, but I just wished the original Team Silent could make it. I can imagine it'd be difficult to pull of the writing, style, and atmosphere of the original 4 all while trying something different with the series (the team initially wanted to explore a 'horror in daylight' concept for the next game before Konami pulled a Konami and axed the original team because the 4th game didn't meet sales expectations). But I'm excited to see how the next games fair.

  • I will never understand why a "gaming company" would work so hard to ruin their reputation with the customers who buy their games (and even development talent) and then continue to do business in this space. Edit: Just looked at their financial disclosure for the year ending dec 2020. Looks like profits in most areas decreased slightly and the only thing that increased was gaming......I wonder if that combined with reports I keep reading of how well gaming in general is doing during the pandemic is causing them to try to salvage and expand the sectors of gaming they lit on fire a few years ago.

  • Konami should outsource Metal Gear Solid 6 to Kojima Productions. I know, I know, a lot of people are afraid that outsourcing such a beloved franchise to another company might potentially take it away from the original creators and put it into the hands of unknown and unproven developers (a very legitimate concern considering what happened with Metal Gear Revengeance), and yes, I know that Kojima Productions is still a young studio with only one game under their belt, but I really think they're the right team for the job. I can't quite put my finger on what it is exactly, but there's something about their studio founder, Hideo Kojima, that tells me he'd be the perfect man to direct the next Metal Gear Solid game.

  • LOL watching this whole video made me acknowledge that you actually consider Red Gaming Tech and Moore's Law is Dead, the NOtownrs who believed the PS5 had "Infinity Cache" and "rDNA3", whilst the Xbox had "rDNA1 only", as "Valid sources" because they predicted an OBVIOUS trailer that was going to happen. Obviously, OF COURSE Sony will show off the next God of War title. WHY wouldn't they. That's like saying in June 2020 "Microsoft will show off Halo Infinite gameplay in July!" That's an obvious, it's their major platform title. Or, as I should put it more appropriately; "Nintendo will show off Mario footage during their New Console's Nintendo Direct". lol.... I can't help but laugh here. Don't EVER consider them "Valid video game sources". Red Gaming Tech only has valid sources for AMD, because he's friends with a dataminer who specifically works on datamining AMD hardware information. Moore's Law is Dead obtains third-rate information from the 'same' twitter accounts as RGT, additionally he adds his own "spin" to everything; If it's not "Anti-nVidia, anti-Intel, pro-AMD", he's not going to talk about it...or spin it as a negative in one of those couple companies. LIke nVidia knocking off the ability to "Datamine" for their lower end graphics cards, which originally escalated the price of the RTX 20 series cards, now apparently is a horrible thing -- even though it was wanted HEAVILY in 2018. Need I go on? As for the "rumors", I suggest you go and look at the public Easter Eggs Microsoft dropped on Silent Hill's Twitter. Oh, yeah, didn't you realize the Official Twitter opened during the July Summer of Games event, which was primarily Microsoft? Should I also mention that this account is following numerous Microsoft employees, but 'just' the PlayStation Twitter account, nothing more in Sony's end? Should I also mention that Metal Gear is also being rebooted, but not by Sony (once more). No, Bluepoint is not doing anything worth of these titles. That's nonsense. BluePoint is specifically there (in the headlines) because Sony will merge with them, and consolidate the then-current aspirations of SiE Japan Studios and task this to BluePoint. Or, to put this very simply; BluePoint is an outsourced team of Sony employees who will work with other studios, much like SiE Japan did. Outside of the one development team they believe will be great for Japan. In this same regard, "remasters" aren't off the table, but not of these two specific titles. Instead, they'll be focusing on marketing methods for upcoming games -- like the next Souls title (hence Demon Souls) or the next Uncharted or, dare I tell you, Last Guardian, title. Does this make me a more credible source than MLID when this gets announced? This NOtown account is a throw away on purpose. I think I covered it all here, besides my previous comment: Can't wait to see what peoples reactions will be when they realize they're not just multiplatform, but going to be debuted on the Xbox Series X. At least one giant one that people just thought was a PS5 game *cough MGS I really, really can't wait :) People are going to lose their minds, more than when Sony announces God of War to PC. Oops, spoilers. Marketing material for more people to be interested in a game is important for Sony, as they'll push older or remasters to hype the 'next' version, which will be either an exclusive on the platform -- or a release for a previous title on PC to hype for the upcoming exclusive. Microsoft, on the other hand, has been on a reboot kick. Perfect Dark, Halo ('spiritual reboot'), Fable, Silent Hill (and PT; yes, this is Microsoft), and I'd love to say more. I can say more. There's actually quite a bit more titles that were suppose to be announced at E3 2020, but we're going to just let this settle for everyone. What would you do if, say, another famous "PlayStation game" was actually being announced for the Xbox Series consoles? Would you "lose your mind"? Or is the simple notion of the game actually being worked on 'good enough' for you? Are you a fan of the game, or a fan of the console? :) That's what I'm waiting for.

  • Look, I’m sure making a game is hard. But if you’ve a ton of skill workers, well known IPs and high tech equipments / softwares. I would like to think you are 90% there already... Konami made so much STUPID move for so long that I dare say they are the absolute worst game developer out there right now. More so than EA, UBISOFT and Blizzard. Yes, they also have horrible line up. But you can still somewhat enjoy their game. Even though you might hate you can see its potential.. Konami’s game (other than PES (rivalling EA fifa how about that)) is downright unplayable. It is insulting to the game industry. Hell it insulting to EA.

MGSV was unfinished because Konami cut the line before they thought that game is good enough to hit the shelves and any more investments won’t be justified. I fell bad for people that developed game engine. It was wonderful.
