Hideo Kojima E3 2011 “No Show”
Well it seems according a recent podcast that Hideo Kojima will not be at E3. If you follow his Twitter you know he has been rather down as of lately. Essentially stating that what he has worked on for a year is a total failure. You can grab the podcast HERE but this is the key notes of the podcast that are of importance to gamers:

Looks like the NGP demo of MGS4 Konami showed in January was just for demonstration purposes…
The latest episode of the Kojima Productions podcast had a new segment in which Hideo Kojima gave simple yes or no answers to some big questions.
You can hear the responses for yourself in the podcast (MP3). The segment starts at the 33:30 mark.
Just in case the high pitched voice of the questioner breaks your headphones, here’s what was said during the segment. Kojima replied yes or no to the questions asked by the questioner.
Will you appear at the Microsoft E3 press conference? < -- NO Will you announce Metal Gear Solid 5? <-- NO Will MGS 3D be released at the end of 2011? <-- YES Is Doctor Lautrec the new title from the Metal Gear staff? <-- NO (with a laugh) Did Kojima Productions Not Work on Metal Gear Arcade? <-- YES Is Gray Fox the main character in MGS Rising? <-- NO Will MGS Rising's multiplayer be shown? <-- NO Is MGS Rising's release date November 1, 2011? <-- NO Will MGS4 be ported to NGP? <-- NO Are you planning something big for Metal Gear's 25th anniversary next year? <-- YES
So it appears the NGP showing of Metal Gear 4 was nothing more then a tech Demo. I wonder if we will hear as many cry’s of “Foul” as we did when FF7 was shown on the PS3 and never saw the light of day. How do you feel knowing one of Sony’s biggest contributors will not appear at this years E3?
