Kojima Not Directing Rising, Only "Fully Involved" With PSP MGS

We get the feeling that Konami and Hideo Kojima have been at odds concerning targeted platforms. Something tells us that Konami has been begging Kojima to bring his famed Metal Gear Solid franchise to the Xbox 360, despite the boss' protests.

Kojima has said many times in the past that he wants to stick with the PlayStation platform for this legendary titles, and the latest bit of info may hint at his belief. As you know by now, Metal Gear Solid: Rising has been announced for the Xbox 360 and PS3, and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker was revealed yesterday for the PSP. Now, according to GameZine, which cited a recent Famitsu interview, Kojima won't be directing Rising and he's concentrating on Peace Walker. He said he's only "fully involved" with the PSP game, where he's acting as "director, producer and game designer" and actually calls Peace Walker the "Metal Gear Solid 5 inside me." As for Rising, he said:

"I'm not the director. I'm not doing game design either. Although, I do issue complaints (laughs). But, not too much."

This may be an indication of Kojima's loyalty to Sony, despite the current times dictating a necessary shift for Konami. One can interpret this in a variety of ways but it's easy to come to such a conclusion, given Kojima's history. Well, what do you think?

Least he has been honest and told us. I wouldn't expect nothing less from the man who I think is a genius.

I am going to have to get a PSP now at some point. Question is do I get a brand newie PSPGo when it comes out or just the previous model ? :)

1) You have no idea all games will be able to be dl'ed. 2) PSP-1000 to 3000 all have Memory slots for a reason, to dl games, which is why Patapon 2 is out so no there will not be PSP Go exclusive games. The best choice is getting a PSP, I'm waiting and getting the Dissidia PSP Bundle myself.

I ABSOLUTELY FU**ING KNEW IT. When people saw Kojima walk on stage...I knew he was going to announce a spin-off that would also find it's way to the PS3. It was something Konami wanted him to do not Kojima himself.

I mean I looked at his body language at M$ and I swear he looked nervous and that he really just wanted to leave the freaking NEON GREEN FU**ING STAGE. (Did anyone notice how it didn't match his suit?)

But suddenly PS3 owners and PS lovers all over the world and PS fanboys started cursing Kojima for "betraying" them...I knew in my heart that Kojima didn't do a thing to betray us in ANY FU**ING WAY.

Then at Sony's press conference we saw him talk about MGS: Peace Walker...and he assured us so many times that this isn't A SPIN-OFF. Now...hmm...why would he say something like that?!?! Then he assured he would be writing the script, directing it, and basically having the MGS 4 team work on it. Oh wow...what was he trying to say through all of this???? THAT HIS FULL HEART IS IN THIS PROJECT: PEACE WALKER!!! And I fucking noticed it.

Did anyone see an actual classic MGS trailer for MGS: RISING?! NO!!!!! It was just a dumb CGI still photo with Raiden in it. But Kojima showed us actual gameplay, real-time footage, gave us a lot of info on what this is and is solely making this for the PlayStation family? WHY?!?!? Because this is the game that is the "missing link." This shows Big Boss actually making Outer Haven. HOW FUCKING SICK IS THAT?!

And to all of you who still think Kojima betrayed us: You're a moron, go play all the MGS games again if you haven't burned them already. If you have burned them: you're a dumbass and should buy them again at full retail price of when it originally released. Then after you're done playing through all of them - buy MGS: Peace walker. If you don't have a PSP get one and buy it.

KOJIMA-SAMA YOU'RE AMAZING!!!!!

Oh well I'm not sure whether or not there were people here cursing Kojima-sama and I'm pretty sure there weren't - but back in the PlayStation forums (www.boardsus.playstation.com) - oh boy...it's like people wanted to commit suicide and sh**. It was ridiculous. I wanted to make a thread and actually tell them how he didn't betray us at all and that he'll surprise us at Sony's E3.

Some people understood...the rest are still blind.

I know I'm just dreaming here but wouldn't it be freakin' amazing if Sony bought out Kojima Productions? I'm definitely getting the feeling that Kojima would go with this if he received an offer. Oh, and while the topic is at hand, who owns the Metal Gear franchise? Konami or Kojima?

Kojima even looked like he wasn't into the Microsoft launch either but Sony's press conf. you could see he was very excited to be on the stage.

He also kept saying that Peace Walker was a "true" sequel to the MGS franchise. Takes place 10 years after MGS3...Awesome!

I must say I have to strongly disagree with you on the Milo point. I think that technology is a game changer... give it time and you will see this to be true.

Sony's motion control system is also interesting and will surely spice things up... it may even be better in the end to hold and feel something in your hand rather than nothing at all... but the Milo demo proves that M$ my have the ultimate system for true virtual reality interaction... don't rubbish it so soon... you will be surprised what they will do with it...

...and yes, "MGS Peace Walker" will finally convince me to purchase a PSP, but not the Go!

it was funny @E3 when the microsoft douche on stage said 'we're glad to have the next installment of the solid snake saga on xbox 360'and kojima-san was like 'NOOOO NO SOLID SNAKE!!"
You could tell he was really pissed off,as if it was discussed back stage and the microdouche tried to slime it out at the last second before it went to the trailer.
I hope to god that this new mask? game is PS3 exclusive and MGSR was to shut M$ up about MGS4.
Speaking of MGSR,at the end of the trailer it said 'SNEAK IN",could their be a stealth element after all?? if so it could be a great game,i mean i'll play it anyway,it is a MGS game after all.

As for peace walker,i'm sold mofo's :)

@ lord Carlos,
The new mask game is Castlevania: Lord of Shadows. It's being make by Spanish developer, "Mercurysteam", which is being guided & helped along by Kojima.

It's going to come out for both, the PS3 & the360, but I'm guessing that the only reason that 360's even getting it too, is because Kojima's not developing the game himself.

So the PSPGo is downloadable content so to get it you will have to download the new Metal Gear Game or wait for it to be released if you have the older PSP if im thinking corectly unless it will be available on the day of release too.

The funniest thing is xbox owners who argue mgs4 should of been ported should realize the box isn't strong enough for it, unless you were willing to press microsoft to release a 5 disc version of the game (which is the only way they'd get it to run) and spends millions! Personally I for one am glad we have people in the industry who are strong enough to stick to their guns (GO KOJIMA) and that we the fans are more then prepared to support them!

Kojima never said "NNNOOOO... NOOO...NOT SOLID SNAKE!!"
The exchange he had with the MS guy was clearly massively scripted.. almost to the point of embarassment.
Watch it back, it sets up the trailer perfectly!

Also, those claiming that MS are only getting metal gear spinoffs are also choosing what they want to hear. We need to talk in facts here.

Kojimas actual words... verbatim were....

"It is my pleasure to announce that I am bringing the Metal gear SOLID franchise to Xbox 360, And I can confirm that the next major release will be called Metal Gear Rising."

I don't know if they'll only get spinoffs but the first one they're getting is definitely a spinoff. I think the only way you could get me immediately less interested in an MGS game is to say it's also gonna be like DMC. No thank you. Moving on.

Before people explode I'm not hating on MGS, the series just doesn't usually interest me. That's why I wanted Kojima to do a new IP.

i dont see much wrong with what questy222 is saying here. yeah hes wrong about the SOLID thing but, Kojima seemed pleased to bring an MGS to 360. The word usage was pure 360 complementary.

Only he knows what he really feels. Also, Rising needs to be announced officially. As in what platforms exactly.

We who support the ps3 aren't blinded by some technology racism we have a pride in a creation that has made great strides above its competition and to think people would be opposed to taking pride in something that's actually...well amazing. Some of us are angered by kojimas decision, others could care less but I think I stand for most people when I say "WE ARE PLAYSTATION OWNERS AND WERE DAMN PROUD" spread the word people!!! Times are changing and geniuses like Hideo have to spread their influence and in the long run we embrace it because we support its creator but first and foremost we support that which has been a guiding light in the gaming industry for decades.

I think the fact that the PSP has a larger install base than both the 360 and PS3 combined has a lot to do with his choice of development platform.

After spending SO MUCH TIME on PS3 development, I'm sure this is a much easier project as compared to his last one. Expectations are also lower. Seriously...how do you live up to or possibly exceed a game like "Metal Gear Solid 4"?

Peace Walker totally justifies my purchase of a PSP. Just got a 2000 a few weeks ago for REALLY CHEAP. I'm a very happy gamer.

Next gen as in a new storyline I think. That's just a guess though.

@Lotusflow3r,
I forget where I read it(I was all over the net checking out all the E3 stuff), but in an Kojima interview yesterday, he said that he was leaving the Raiden game to his younger-hipper members in his company.

And he also said that the game would be the start of taking the whole Metal Gear franchise storyline completly in a new direction with other main characters(meaning no more Snake).

I may be wrong but it would be cool and cheap if you had to fight different boss clones with different specialties...The snake! The liquid snake! The solid snake! And so on...anybody follow me?

Im really worried about Rising, if Kojima isnt Directing it, who will? O_o i want Rising to be on the same calibur as MGS4...If anything changes i hope current director keels over and Kojima takes the reigns like he shouldve in the 1st place. Peace Walker DEFINITLY looks like it came directly from Kojimas mind, didnt anyone see the official logo of Peace Walker? its cool! I always knew Kojima was a Sony fanboy! Three cheers for who? SONY! :D

DUDE, where is the article on Castlevania: Lords of Shadow??? Castlevania + Hideo Kojima = the best thing I've ever heard for Castlevania!!! I am still having a hard time comprehending the awesomeness! Where is an article so we can discuss?!?! How can such a huge announcement be ignored on this site?!

I'm sure Rising will turn out good. Kojima has been saying how he wants to pass the torch so he can move on to other games. However I must admit after reading this article, it made the Playstation fanboy in me happy.

His words clearly stated that the metal gear franchise has come to the 360. implying that everything in the series that goes to ps3 will also go to xbox 360.

actually your wrong cause the Metal Gear franchise went to the xbox with MGS2. Xbox never saw MGS3 just like the 360 will never see MGS4. So no, its not as you say it is. the 360 is getting a Raiden spinoff that Kojima is hardly working on. Its obvious this was only done to shut people like you and MS up(obvious hasnt worked). If the entire MGS franchise was coming to 360 they would have ported MGS4(something not possible i might add) a year ago. Be happy with your spin off.

"the metal gear franchise has come to the 360"
in the form of a spinoff that hes not even working on. I bet you the next Metal to hit PS3 will not be on the 360. This Rising games is going to be only a quater of the size and greatness MGS4 was.

GO BUY YOURSELF A FRIGGING CLUE!!!!

Kojima doesn't like MS, & it was ONLY because of Konami pressuring him on Raiden.
That's why he's not doing it himself, & he's tossed it over to one of his newest, youngest teams

Stop being such a MS fanboy & try enjoying your PS3 enough that some day, you'll actually like it, and this site.
I'm starting to seriously think that by all your MS nonsense, that you own a whole lot of BS, and not any PS.

All you want to do is chat down the PS3 & games almost every single chance you get, and then keep showinging us all how you bow down to praise MS, with your constant "Oh hail to the mighty Red Ring of Death" in almost every single post.

And we're all pretty f*cking tired of hearing your crybaby bitchin & moaning about the PS3(AT LEAST I AM), so either straighten the F*ck up while you're here, or just STFU & if you don't like it, don't let the door hit you in your ass.
And if so, don't go crying, just go away, period!

"I'm BikerSaint & I approved this messege"!!!!

I think that if Konami keeps pressuring Kojima to put MG on the 360, he could just walk away from them & do his own company thing.

But, I'm not sure if he or Konami owns the MS franchise rights. If Kojima does, then I'm sure he'd be wearing all the hats, as producer, writer, director, & developer.

And I know he'd do a much better job with every game, without the stress & aggravation of Konami meddling with his games.

I've got a distinct feeling that Kojima is fed up with Konami, and has already been testing the water's to see if he can go it on his own in the future.

And I think this is exactly why Kojima has reached out to guide & help on Spanish developer "Mercurysteam", with their new
"Castlevania:Lost in Shadows" game.

Oh my God will you guys please grow up? Every since this game was announced multiple PS3 fanboy sites have tried every little way to discredit this game. All this does is make people think you are extremely butthurt over this, much like the PS3 fanboy butthurt fallout debacle of last year's FFXIII megaton.

Regardless of the role Kojima plays in this you still have an extremely talented team that know what they are doing.

Hell, having less Kojima on this might even benefit a lot of 360 owners because of Kojima's knack for ridiculously long cutscenes.

I just find it sad that we are in the middle of the biggest video game conference in the world and PS3 fanboy sites are doing whatever they can to spin people in another direction after being so butthurt by a MS announcement.

Regardless of how this turns out it is likely to sell extremely well given its multiplatform status. It will be hard to turn back and cut your potential revenue in half. Money talks

Kojima shows his loyalty to Sony's platform and us fans.
I think Sony should sign him up and give him the money and support for him to do what he wants. Sony allows gives their studios the freedom to do what they want. Could Konjima bring Metal Gear Solid over under Sony's wing, or has Konami got full rights over the franchise?
