Hideo Kojima Unhappy With Metal Gear Solid 4

The latest issue of UK Gaming Magazine, EDGE, contains an interview the Metal Gear series creator, Hideo Kojima. In the interview, he shows us his disappointment with Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.

"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."
From what we've seen so far, the graphics are amazing. But you know Kojima, he wants to be a perfectionist.
"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."
Seems he wanted to do more than what the PlayStation 3 can handle.
"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."
Metal Gear Solid 4 is not revolutionary, straight from Kojima. Personally, he is a bit overreacting, the game looks great from what I've seen.

Well thats not good... Why's he totally bashing the PS3? Just because he doesn't have the ability to create something revolutionary...it's the systems fault? What does he consider Revolutionary? Having Snake come out of the screen and b*tchslap you?

Jesus, Kojima-san, wait until after the game actually ships to start the "afterthoughts" interviews...wanting to do more is great, but how are you gonna look in two years when PS3 games go far beyond MGS4? Are you still gonna say you "maxed out" the machine when other teams take it to insane levels?

I think all the developers feel like that towards a game...sense they want it to be more than what they expect, so they get 100% satisfaction..but if you have low expectations towards the game then you'll feel great if you get better than expected..so according to Kojima sense he is a perfectionist He'll want more than he expected and it won't be even enough after that...but the game Is and Will be awesome to the Extreme!

This is a marketing disaster!!! Why, WHY!!!! Why would he ever come out and publically trash his own game and the system it's coming out on?!?!?!?

This is horrible! You don't piss on a game before it comes out and it's still a couple months away from release. Does he not want people to buy it? Does he want the game to fail? Is he leaving Konami for another company and wants to make sure that MGS4 falls on its collective a** before he says goodbye?

I can't stress how bad this is! One can only hope that this news will die and die soon!

Obviously I have an opinion but I'm nearly speechless about what he said. UN-F***ING-BELIEVABLE!!!! Someone kipnap Kojima, lock him in a cell and wire his jaw shut!!!!

He's not bashing the ps3 nor the game... his point here is: if you like it, you are welcome, otherwise its sony's fault for putting such a 'bad CPU' in the PS3

don't worry, i think its gonna be the best game (besides GTA IV) that is released to date for the PS3

What in the world was Kojima's problem? The game is incredible, it's beautiful, it's tons of fun!

I don't get the problem with the CPU bit. The PS3 CPU, as I understand it, is the best CPU of any console. Methinks he was expecting wwaaayyyyy too much.

I like Pirates of the Burning Sea Gold very much, because it is useful. Since I entered into this game, I learnt skills to earn potbs gold. Thanks to potbs Doubloon let me know a lot of friends. It is my habit to buy potbs Doubloon now. I get some potbs money from my friends and Internet.

After school, He likes playing games using these buy shadow of legend Gold with his friends.
I do not like to play it. Because I think that it not only costs much money but also spend much time. One day, he give me many cheap shadow of legend Goldand play the game with me.
I came to the bar following him and found shadow of legend Gold moneywas so cheap. After that, I also go to play game with him.
