Hideo Kojima Plans on Having a Multiplatform Future
Published on Sunday, 14 April 2013 19:24
While we have seen numerous ports and remakes of the Metal Gear Solid series, it generally has a long history with Sony. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots still remains a PS3 exclusive to this day. However, while that may be the case, lately we’ve been seeing Hideo Kojima’s games appear on multiple platforms. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is available on both PS3 and Xbox 360, and the recently announced Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is also on its way to a multiplatform release. Will this always be the case from now on, or will Kojima ever commit himself to one particular console? The question was asked in this month’s edition of EDGE magazine, Kojima stating:
"It’s a tough question to answer. Obviously, I do like Sony, I respect them and I have a lot of things in common with their way of thinking. I think the future of gaming is with cloud technology and cloud gaming. I love Sony, I have a Sony camera, but I think if you’re going to enter the cloud generation then there will be a lot of different devices involved and a lot of different ways to interact with that game world. I don’t want to limit it to any one platform, but I’m not going to say I’m not going to participate in the events. This time [for the PlayStation Meeting], I kind of would have liked to participate, but I was here tending to Rising’s world tour."
So, if you were worrying about your console not being able to support Kojima’s future games, it looks like you will be able to rest easy tonight.

Here we are. The next generation of consoles is among us and it is finally time to start thinking about finally unplugging our beloved current-gen systems. Could there be a better swan song for one of these systems than taking a trip back to Rapture?
Whether it’s a rainy day, a sickness, or some other reason not to go outside and enjoy the beautiful summer air, video games are the perfect way to spend your time - that is, if you can find a game to play. In terms of releases, summer generally isn’t the most fruitful of seasons, and this year is no different. So what games could/should you be sinking your teeth into during the dog days?
Since its reveal at E3 2009, The Last Guardian has not resurfaced other than in rumours and in statements regarding said rumours. Sony admits to major studio problems during the game’s development, but constantly reassures those anticipating the game that it is still not, and will not, be canceled. So is this the year that we finally see the resurrection of The Last Guardian? In my opinion, the answer is a big fat NO.
Getting my first mount in World of Warcraft was a major milestone. It came at a time before Blizzard reduced the cost of training for a ground mount and the gold required seemed like an impossible sum when quests were doling out a few coppers. What's more, I was foolishly selling my gathered iron or mithril to in-game vendors rather than placing it up for auction. I won't get into the particulars of my moneymaking strategy but I will say that it wasn't effective and very indicative of my n00b status.
