Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Unveiled

GDC 2013 sees Kojima and company announcing the next full title in the Metal Gear series – Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, for PS3 and Xbox 360.

So far only a trailer and not much else has been released, Kojima being almost as good as tantalising release shenanigans as he is as designing hit games:

A new engine is promised as a major feature – although with both platforms now being hopelessly obsolete the developer’s promises of “photorealism” ring more than a little hollow.

    Don't get your hype too high, the game is announced for the lowly 360, set the graphics aside, the game now is limited to 8 gigabytes of DATA.

    So goo graphics means less features, no audio options and lame-short game, beating a 60$ game on less than 10 hours is crap.

    I beat MGS1 in less than 3 hours, MGS4 in less than 5 hours (The Boss Extreme difficulty, Big Boss emblem achieved :P) ...expect this to be finished in 8 - 10 hours (or less) for the fastest player

    (I forgot how much time needed for me to finish MGS 2 and 3)

    Multiple disk games are possible, see: FFXIII, Forza 3's install disk.

    They WERE possible, not anymore, companies don't want to spend more coin than necessary to publish and sell their crappy, underdeveloped games.

    Last time I checked, this isn't crappy or underdeveloped. This is Metal Gear Solid V, give it some credit.

    So could you please tell me again how long the actual 'playing' part of MGS4 was?

    A little less than 20 hours, less if not counting cinemas and even less if you already know the game.

    So you're saying MGS1 2 and 3 were garbage because they were on inferior systems? I guess your have no faith in Kojima, Shame. I for one will be looking forward to buying this one for the 360 because i missed out on 4.

    Right, because 10cent disk is too expensive to produce. You're an idiot.

    Because Gaming DVDs, printing, coding, watermarking, packing and box art overall, costs more tan 10 cents.
    Or do they sell you a blank disc, no box, no manual and on a "Somy" disc?
    Idiot people are idiot.

    Yes, but in this case, we are talking about the marginal cost of putting in one or two more disc, which only mean that the box needs to be the type that holds more than one disc, those are made of plastic so the cost isn't that much, the DVD, plus the sticker, all of which should cost that much more. Of all the things they would consider, that would probably be the least costly.

    "A new engine is promised as a major feature – although with both platforms now being hopelessly obsolete the developer’s promises of “photorealism” ring more than a little hollow."

    Kojima did mention awhile back that the Fox engine is able to scale up to the newer consoles. The demo being played on at today's GDC event was on the PC. So in technical terms it wouldn't be that hard to port for people who did get the PS4 or the Xbox next-gen system.

    I'll just get it on PC: Since Ground Zeroes is confirmed to be a sort of prequel to The Phantom Pain, we can assume they'll both be on PC, and that's where the Fox engine will really shine.

    I agree. But anons are forgetting that the best way to prove your engine's capabilities is to release a game on a constrained environment (last gen consoles) while keeping the graphics, particles, etc, competitive with new consoles (PS4 and it's launch games).

    Then, release another game using the same engine on the new consoles that whoop the established perceptions of it's capabilities, creating hype.

    All that eye-candy and visual improvement becomes an eye-sore, considering it's currently only being released for the 360 and PS3 (even tho, supposedly all that was being rendered in real-time on a PC). If they really wanted to show off the Fox Engine, they should've *also* release it for the PC.

    Remember the FOX Engine is designed so they can make multi-platform releases. It should look good no matter what system it's on.

    The target demographic excludes the PC.
    This makes any pro-PC argument moot.

    Well, the fact is PCs are more powerful. Feels like a waste that nobody's interested in using that power.

    Sure they are. They're using the power of obsolete 7 years old PCs, aka, consoles.

    I spend 1000€ on my pc 300€ on my audio system and over 700€ on my wacom, screen, keyboard, mouse. 2000€ isn't bad at all compared to what i can do with my pc.

    2000€ is easy enough to save. 4 months of work and save 500€ every month.

    you guys and your grafic jibber jabber... seriously, since when is METAL GEAR SOLID about grafic? games are about having fun and/or experiencing all the emotions, up and downs, literally living every moment of the game! if you want super grafic go and watch Tv you will get the most realistic grafic of all :D I still cant forget the moment when I put bullet through Wolfs head after sniper match or how I had to plug joystick in slot 2 in oder to see Mantis.. I mean, come on! its not the stupid grafic that makes MGS so amazing :)

    You are mostly dealing with PC fans... You know, the first ones to jump in and say "graphics are not important" AND THEN brag about how PC is "superior to every other platform in every sense".

    Yes, ...

    The last I heard (and many times before the last, in fact), Kojima wanted to stop working on the MGS series, but they sort of didn't let him. Which is why the series becomes more bizarre as it continues - he is literally trying to spite them enough for them to stop "encouraging" him to continue working on it.

    Maybe Big Boss will be voiced by the guy who did him in Guns of the Patriots. Richard Doyle.

    The Phantom Pain looks like it sets up events that happened in the original Metal Gear games; this could mean that David will be voicing a young Solid Snake.
    If so, you still shouldn't expect him to confirm it; voice actors(and all the other employees/contractors) for big-franchises often have to sign non-disclosure agreements to keep them from spoiling the game.
