The connection between Bowie and Metal Gear Solid is nothing new. In fact, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater contains numerous references to Bowie's "Major Tom" character. In addition, series creator Hideo Kojima said earlier this year that he wanted to use Bowie's "Diamond Dogs" as the opening song for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.
Bowie's connection to gaming goes deeper still. He is also the father of Duncan Jones, who is currently directing the movie based on Blizzard Entertainment's Warcraft franchise.
