Forums - Gaming Discussion - Konami Is Done With AAA Console Games; Tech Director Quits

For a game with an $80 million dollar budget, they're probably not that happy with MGSV's sales. I'm sure it probably had a solid opening in most markets, but it's also likely dropping like a rock after that. I'm not sure it will get much past 700k in Japan. 

It's their own fault. Lots of people pirated MGS V when they heard about how Konami abused it's employees.



My true form. You like it?

Hope Sony can give them some change for Silent Hill IP.
Kojima can probably buy MGS himself.

They can sell the rest to Deep Silver.

What? Why Deep Silver?

Nintendo making Metal Gear? Fuck that.

Nah, they'll probably give it to Kojima. Kojima's a good friend of Sakurai after all.

Was just a matter of time...
Konami IP's should go to Sony.

They'll go to the highest bidder, which is worrying.

Yeah, no one should make a new Metal Gear.

Because it's fucking over already.

You two seems to be too positive about this. Maybe you guys forgot what happened to the Bemani Mobile team?
