Wednesday, 27th March 2013 18:11 GMT By Phil Owen

The Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes panel at GDC, it was revealed that the mysterious title shown at the Spike VGAs last year is indeed a Kojima game, and is in fact the subtitle for Metal Gear Solid V. Watch this post about the panel for updates.

    But this is it? So much for the Joakim Mogren stuff? Isn’t it a bit too much? Both Ground Zeroes and MGS5? No screenshots? Nothing else? SO many questions, so little answers :(

    It’s not PS4. Kojima said the demo is running on the PC.

    So it’s going to be for next-gen after all? I thought it was confirmed to be PS360?

    That means nothing. That means only that it is running on the PC and that’s it.

    @TEA, Yeah, Playstation fanboy. That’s why Hideo K. holds XBOX 360 CONTROLLER in his hands.

    PLEASE, SOMEBODY WATCHING THE STREAMING: Tell us if they say the game is coming to current-gen or next-gen consoles and if it’s coming for PC too.

    Yay :) :) :) i was worried i would have to splash out for two MGS games. i still doubt this is running on PS3 let alone Xbox360.
    @15/19 Its most likely running on a PC limited to PS3 or Xbox360 Specs, not confirmed for PC itself.

    They are showing off the fox engine compared to real photos. the fox engine is super advance and looks so photo realistic.

    Man this is so next gen shit right here. It looks so good guys. Big Boss in a conference room with a half naked little black boy !??? Japanese people are weird!

    Detail on weapons are very impressive!

    If fox engine is as close to real life as possible then Fox engine 2.0 will be real life. I shit you not.

    With the relative size of the user base of the PS360 platforms, I would say it is reasonable to expect to a lot of new games coming for them down the road. So much to the point that MS and Sony might feel they need to shut those old systems down in order to migrate people to the new ones, like MS did with last gens Xbox.

    Lets hope they continue to support the current gen consoles even though they might be holding back the next gen ones. A bit like how Sony supported the PS2 for quite a while.

    Holy Shit! Phantom Pain is MGS5? What an Amazing Suprise!

    Or not. Just give me your game Mr. Kojima, I don’t care how you name it. But I would like to play it on something more modern than these old PS360 things. Next-Gen, or PC, or my Calculator, something like that.

    What time line does this game take place, I know nothing of MGS series but after watching this series, this looks amazing. Is this before MGS4 or after?

    Before MGS4 after Peace Walker.
