Metal Gear Solid 4 by Kojima Productions | PS3Blog.net
[Update: And don’t forget that MGS4 will be shown at this year’s Tokyo Game Show. Hopefully we’ll get a rain of new details.]
The Metal Gear Solid series, one of the reasons to buy Sony game consoles, is coming to the PS3 in the form of Metal Gear Solid 4 (MGS4). The exclusive PS3 game is currently in development by Kojima Productions. This title is being created by Hideo Kojima, who is in charge of many aspects of the game. We know that the theme permeating the game will be “no place to hide”, presumably altering the gameplay a bit from previous MGS games.
In an interview with Gamespot, when asked about MGS4 Mr. Kojima said this:
I do not want to create a set anymore. I want to create the environment from scratch. So if I were to continue the example of a jungle, I don’t want to create fake jungles anymore. I would like to plant a tree, put a life-form in there, life program in there, so that in the game, when you water the plant, it will grow. If you don’t water the plant, it will die. What I would like to present to the user is now play our hide-and-seek game in this real world, not the set jungle that everyone competes on.
I wonder where he’s going with this, and what it will mean for the MGS franchise. Sounds like a lot of fun.
