“I’m very interested in [LA Noire], and I’m waiting for it to be released in Japanese. I haven’t played it yet but I was able to go to the studio where they were [performing the facial capture]. The technology is absolutely fantastic. Nevertheless, for the next game I want to make, it isn’t necessarily the technology I need, so I don’t think it goes along with the next game I would like to create. This technology, regarding facial expressions – that affect the outcome of the game – I think that’s a huge element that from now on will change the direction of adventure games.” – Hideo Kojima during the Gamelab conference in Barcelona via Edge.
