What If Kojima Is Saving Project Ogre For The PS4's Launch?
Okay, so we're all aware of Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes now, which Hideo Kojima confirmed was not Project Ogre, the master's other project that remains a mystery.
So could Project Ogre or perhaps Metal Gear Solid 5 end up being a launch title for the PlayStation 4? The new machine will need all the software it can get at launch, and let's not forget something important: Sony delayed the US launch of the Vita so they could ensure there would be plenty of available games. And the Vita's release saw the most number of launch games in PlayStation history.
In short, it seems obvious that Sony has learned that new hardware requires appealing software right out of the gate. Plus, we know Kojima, the quintessential perfectionist, requires a fair amount of time to complete his projects. Therefore, it's only logical to assume that at least one of his unannounced titles is being prepped for the next generation of hardware. Put it all together, and it's not out of the realm of possibility to see something like MGS5 when the PS4 hits store shelves, or maybe it'll be that Project Ogre thing...whatever it is.
That will make the PS4 more interesting in the eyes of consumers, now wouldn't it? Hell yeah.
