According to PS3 Center, the latest issue of PSM3 reports the following rumour:
“MGS maestro Hideo Kojima’s got some big announcements for E3 in June: one a quasi-logical step for an existing game, the other… well, we’d be shocked if MGS5 wasn’t on the table at some stage. Or under it. In a box.”
The company has taken on staff for “next generation” Metal Gear projects.

Featuring a gruff, macho main character, over-the-top action, sabotage, and more twists than a bag of Twizzlers, all Metal Gear needs is a few blue people and it’s pure Hollywood gold.
So, what’s the deal? Why hasn’t Hideo Kojima’s stealth-action odyssey infiltrated movie theaters yet? While guest-blogging over at MTV’s Movies Blog, Solid Snake voice actor David Hayter did his best to explain.

A couple interesting tidbits regarding Peace Walker landed in this week’s issue of Famitsu.
One chats about how the game incorporates Yamaha’s Vocaloid software, allowing for in-game weapons that have AI installed in them to sing and scream at you while attacking.
The other is Hideo Kojima revealing that the 2D illustrated demo scenes you’ll see in-game are also interactive.
“During these demos, there are parts that the player can work by himself, moving the camera and looking around,” he said. “That was [art director Yoji] Shinkawa’s idea. There’s no huge penalty if you ignore it, but it works its way into assorted aspects into the game.”
Citing an example, Shinkawa popped in explaining that “if you zoom in on the scene where you first meet Paz, you can see the uniform she has on under her coat, and then what’s under that.”
As far as the future of the series is concerned, Kojima dons his mad scientist hat again and said that someday, portable games will not be bound by hardware capabilities.
“In the near future, though, we’ll have an era where you can just connect to a host computer with your portable and play all sorts of great games,” he said. “I’d like to experiment a little and see what kind of Metal Gear game would be best for that kind of environment.”

Media Molecule boss Mark Healy was worried the firm’s take on Metal Gear Solid for LittleBigPlanet wasn’t going to sit well with Kojima Productions, the developer’s admitted to VG247.
“We were slightly worried that our first attempts weren’t going to go down too well,” he said.
“We see Metal Gear Solid as quite serious, a hardcore, intense thing. Obviously, what we did was quite cute, almost satirical. But they loved it. They’ve got a great sense of humour and they really embraced it.”
Phew. Fellow MM mega-chief Kareem Ettouney added that the collaboration in general was glitch-free.
“It was really great,” he said. “We met Mr Kojima in America, and he was telling us how excited he was, how much he liked the results.
“We got a lot of support from the Metal Gear Solid team – beautiful assets. Everyone was really excited. It was a very smooth example of collaboration which celebrated the two brands and retained the identity of the two.”
Kareem and Mark were speaking to us at Develop in Brighton earlier this year. You can watch the full interview here.

Speaking in Konami’s latest issue of the company’s internal magazine, MGS creator Hideo Kojima has said Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker will “require hundreds of hours to complete”.
He also reiterates that the team from Metal Gear Solid 4 will be seriously involved with the game as well as himself.
“The main team from MGS4 is participating in the development of this title and I am involved in all aspects of the game, ranging from design, direction and scenario writing.”
He goes on further to state the game will be a great looking title, despite it being on the PSP.
“Despite being on the PSP, we don’t plan on making any compromises with the graphics. The art team is used to producing PS3-level quality and the results will make you wonder if this is really a PSP game.”

Game’s out next year.

You might have seen rumours of Christian Bale doing a Metal Gear Solid film. Someone spoke to him about it: he isn’t.
From an MTV interview:
MTV: Metal Gear Solid, is this something you’ve ever talked about doing as a film?
MTV: Are you a video game fan?
MTV: What do you play?
Bale: That. Metal Gear Solid.
MTV: You play it?
MTV: How many hours does that suck out of you on a weekly basis?
Bale: You know what, no, I’ve kinda devoted my time to more constructive things of late. You know?
Such a happy chap. Thanks, Kotaku.
