Metal Gear Solid 5 creator Hideo Kojima has stated that while he has had a long and prosperous history on Sony formats, it’s time to go multi-platform from here . He also feels that cloud gaming is the future.

Speaking with Edge, Kojima was asked if he could ever pledge allegiance to just one format. He replied, “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.”
