Speaking on Konami's Japanese site, Hideo Kojima has said that big business is knocking this shit out of creative games development. Which is probably a bit of a shame.

"The creativity of video games is now on the verge of crisis," he said.

"Massive advertising campaigns are executed for games before their entertainment values are put into consideration all too often, resulting in sell-off tactics happening without hesitation."

You go, Hideo. Um. Didn't MGS4 have a giant ad campaign?
