Kojima's NEXT Site Gets a Countdown Timer

550°
283w ago - As a follow-up to the previous article of a Japanese magazine ad indicating that Kojima's new project will be revealed on the 18th of May, a countdown timer has now appeared.

The game is set to be revealed later today on Kojima's [Register or Login to view links] Web site (also linked above).

Now... when the thunder sounds, you can see a 5... but, for what Kojima's used to offer us, it's hard to belive a Metal Gear 5, and I'd say it's rather an S than a 5 (five).

284w ago - An ad appeared in a Japanese magazine indicating that Kojima's new project will be revealed on the 18th of May.

The ad shows dark clouds in the shape of Snake.

To quote hweita of GameTrailers forums (linked above):

Here's an ad from a Japanese gaming magazine today:

Personally I see the clouds in the shape of Snake lying down... Dark clouds in the picture indicate a storm (Raiden = storm in Japanese) is coming?

Wow... Hope we get to know a lot more on the 18th of May
 

Kojima Productions Big Announcement Imminent

400°
284w ago - Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots came and we played. Then our own Scottish nobleman Mark Serrels came, and we went dang man, WTF?!

Yes there is no greater Kojima fanboy than gameplayer's Mr. Serrels who holds as his three fondest moments in life getting married, killing The End and seeing Kojima's wang in the dunnies at a Konami press trip in late 2007 in support of MGS4.

The man keeps in contact with the friends he made on that trip, including a member of Kojima's staff, who has just dropped him an email saying that the famous developer is about to make a big announcement in "T minus 3 days and counting" with regards to a new project.

What could it be? Zone of Enders 3? Snatcher Reborn? Metal Gear Solid vs. NWO World Tour? Speculate your respective butts off in the comments below and be sure to watch this space for info as soon as it drops. For the record, we're guessing a repackaged Metal Gear Solid 4, possibly in the vein of Subsistence. But for giggles we're saying MGS4 for Xbox 360!

Now wouldn't that turns some heads!
 

Kojima Gauging Gamer Interest in Zone of the Enders 3 for PS3

100°
287w ago - Six years after the release of the last console game in the series, Hideo Kojima is talking Zone of the Enders.

Specifically, the Kojima Productions founder asks if gamers are really interested in a Zone of the Enders 3 during a [Register or Login to view links] of MGS4's in-game "Integral" podcast.

To quote: [Register or Login to view links], the second game in the series, was directed by MGS4 co-writer and director, Shuyo Murata, and remains a fan favorite in addition to a critical success; we're surprised it's taken Kojima this long to broach the topic of a sequel.

In closing out a discussion about the demand for a follow-up, Kojima and his podcasting partners ask gamers to [Register or Login to view links] if they'd be interested in seeing it happen.

Kojima-san, about your mail server... we're sorry about its imminent death under the weight of all those emails. Surely you can buy a new one with profits from ZOE 3?
 

Will Hideo Kojima Sacrifice Quality for Multiplatform?

300°
291w ago - So we all know that Hideo Kojima will reveal his new project at E3 in June, and we're anxiously anticipating the unveiling.

However, it seems to be a commonly accepted theory that this new title will be made for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Historically, Kojima has always sided with Sony's brand but he has admitted that he'd like to see his studio appeal more to the Western masses, and considering that, it would make sense to include the 360 in their future plans.

But as we've said before that if a developer wishes to focus entirely on the PS3, they can make better strides (just look at the current and future PS3 exclusives), we have a question: if Kojima does a multiplatform game, will it fall short of the quality we saw in MGS4? Would he even allow that to happen?

We're banking on the fact that Kojima is both a master and a perfectionist, so we seriously doubt that he'd give us a lackluster production simply for the sake of appealing to more gamers on the 360. But at the same time, he has also said he never wanted to put any MGS installment on a Microsoft console, and some sources have claimed that MGS4 wouldn't even be possible on the 360 (perhaps due to the difficult Blu-Ray to DVD conversion).

Now, we're not concluding anything one way or the...
