Locked: Kojima Disappointed With Metal Gear Solid 4

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Kojima Disappointed With Metal Gear Solid 4

I don't care about MGS 4. I hope it's good game, but is looks like PS3 is not as powerfull as some people wants it to be.



 Looks like Kojima Jr. isn't the only one disappointed with Metal Gear Solid. The latest issue of the UK's Edge magazine contains an interview with Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima, who expresses disappointment with the latest game in the series, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. It isn't so much the gameplay itself as it is the graphics.

    "Game-wise, it's pretty close to the original vision: you sneak into the battlefield and can choose whether to do a stealth game or interfere with the battle more directly. But the graphic, side things like motion-blending and the size of the map, totally was not accomplished to my original vision - to my satisfaction.

Now Kojima is a well-known perfectionist, but it is a bit disturbing to see him voice his dissatisfaction with what is supposed to be the masterpiece of the franchise. So where does he lay the blame for not fully realizing his vision?

    "When we first showed the game engine at TGS, the staff were really proud and happy. PS3 was a dream machine, y'know, and we were going to work on this and that - and we had so many ideas. But when we actually started developing the game, we realized there were a lot of restrictions and so it turned out how you see it today. The original vision was to go ten steps further, the reality was just one step, which isn't to say we didn't progress.

So there was certainly progress made, but not enough progress...or more specifically, not enough power for progress. Apparently the team overestimated what the PlayStation 3 was capable of.

    I remember saying three years ago that we wanted to create something revolutionary, but in reality we couldn't really do that because of the CPU. We're using the Cell engine to its limit., actually. Please don't get me wrong, I'm not criticizing the PS3 machine, it's just that we weren't really aware of what the full-spec PS3 offered - we were creating something we couldn't entirely see.

Well there you have it, straight from the man himself. Metal Gear Solid 4 is not revolutionary. Personally I think the man is being a bit hard on himself, but that's what great minds do.

Very old.


Hilariously old--the game will still be fantastic, though.

Could I trouble you for some maple syrup to go with the plate of roffles you just served up?

very old ;(

Time to Work !

I think I just went through a worm hole. I thought this was published, discussed, and dismissed. Go look at some gameplay footage of MGS4 if you think the PS3 isn't powerful.

Thanks for the input, Jeff.



Just someone who has no intrest in the game posting this in spite of the PS3.

 This news is so old, God mentioned it in the 13th commandment....but then butterfinger Moses went and dropped the tablet with the last 5 commandments on it and it broke.

Hey if its true then it can put an end to the "PS3 has untapped potentialz" argument!
