so this shows me that kojima was always pro Sony since the ps1 era and it was konami that forced him to put games on other platforms. glad sony managed to get this man on their side for an exclusive

He's currently contracted by Sony to produce one exclusive for them. He probably prefers to work with Playstation, but I don't think anything suggests that he doesn't want his games to be on other platforms. If Death Stranding was a multiplatform game, he would not get funding for it by any console manufacturer, which his studio probably is in need of, since they are new and formed out of an unexpected turn of events at Konami.

As for why Guerilla got to see his game before anyone else, it's because they gave him their game engine to save his team months/years having to build one from scratch.
He received the engine in a little wooden box. And last week her presented his game to them, enclosed in the same box.

Oh no, how dare evil Konami want their games on more than one platform. The horror!

Considering his game runs off Guerillas engine I'm going to say No to this one. Especially when it appears that he has shown Remedy too, a studio with closer ties to MS than Sony.

That said, he has always had more of a relationship with Sony over the years.

Guerrilla guys were very cool to approach Kojima asap back then.
Their Decima engine is amazing, and it's nice to see a guy so talented have such great tools, support and comfort to work to his heart's content.
I'm honestly not hyped for Death Strading, I need to know a damn lot more to even get hyped, but I'm happy for both Guerrilla and Kojima.
Guerrilla has really come up to walk alongside the big guys, Horizon was such a massive start, hope Death Stranding turns out great as well.

Guerrilla games didn't approach Kojima, after the split , Kojima and Mark Cerny who's friendship with Kojima goes wayback went on a worldwide tour of Sony studios looking at various tech and then settled on Decima engine , he stated that even though  Horizon's artistic vision was very different than what he envisioned for Death stranding , Decima ticked off the boxes  guerrilla then handed over the engine code and Kojima has a small team inserted at Guerrilla to facilitate engine development from Guerilla's end and He mentioned his engineers send back engine refinements and changes they make to guerilla and vice versa. http://www.pushsquare.com/news/2016/01/feature_what_did_we_learn_from_hideo_kojimas_sony_tech_tour

That area in the HZD clip didn't make it into the 2017 release or DLC. Looks quite similar to some of the area shown in DS. GG's use of Decima in HZD no doubt inspired Kojima.



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

I'm in an interesting spot with this. Intrigued about what the final product is going to give us,but have been absolutely bored and underwhelmed by everything they've shown so far

Lots of style, very little substance...

That's my takeaway from this game's trailers...



Kojima in pretty good shape. Great pecs for a 55 year old.

Lol that doesn't make sense. He's probably showing this to guerrilla games because he's using their engine for Death Stranding.

where did i say he went there because of another reason than showing them the game made with their engine? im saying kojima loves sony and favors them over any other platform this is why sony is helping kojima with his post konami career and why almost every metal gear solid game was a PS exclusive for a certain amount of the decade all that changed ehen konami got greedy and started trying to make the series into something bloated for multiplatforms. kojima was not the reason metal gear solid ended up on the xbox. Sony took action and will rake in success thanks to Kojima and them working hand in hand which is why guerrilla knew it was a great idea to provide Kojima with their top of the line game engine.

Kojima = Sony for a long time
