Konami Countdown Gives More Hints
Logically, we can only assume that 5 implies a fifth game. E and 3 are E3. But what does the lowercase "e" mean? Well, a few folks familiar with Japanese culture recognized that the lowercase letter "e" looks very much like the Japanese symbol for snake. This leaves us only to assume that MGS5 is well on its way, unless Kojima somehow decides to yank our tails by flipping the 5 into a Z, and mash an O in between the Z and the "e".
Hell, we'd better see an announcement for both ZOE3 and MGS5 at E3. Do it Konami, if you wish to steal the show. Just do it.
