Kojima Praises PS4's Graphical Ability, Social Elements

Hideo Kojima has some nice things to say about the highly advanced PlayStation 4.

During a recent Game Spark interview (as cited by DualShockers), the Metal Gear Solid creator talks about the system's impressive graphical capability and the positives of connecting core gamers to social gamers.

In regards to the graphics, he says the improved visuals help out games like Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain for a very specific reason: As the plot centers on intolerance of different ethnic peoples, the better graphics allow us to even better see those differences. In general, he sees the extra power of the PS4 adding to the overall immersiveness of games. Then there's the social aspect of Sony's new console, which Kojima believes builds a bridge between social/casual gamers and avid/hardcore gamers.

Although I couldn't give two figs about the social side, he's right, of course. For our PS4 launch day breakdown, check out the assigned grades.

Better graphics are always nice, but idk if they are integral to a plot.

I guess they are to Kojima if they better show how the races are different from one another? Yeah, pretty strange thing to say.

Kojima saying strange things has become the norm, hasn't it?

If he were so smart he'd do more than just surf on the reputation of one of his creations.

I'm just hoping developers do new exciting things with this console instead of just pushing poly and particle counts higher.

Seriously I want a game to release on the PS4 that effects the gaming industry like minecraft did. I know its a long shot but I'm just hoping to see some really cool gameplay innovation with all this power devs are talking about instead of just better looking games.

Might have to pin your hopes on Media Molecule.

Yup, that was a huge disappointment. Saying we were gonna be blown away. I wasn't even slightly moved by the announcement. Especially since he had already done something similar in MGS4.
