Hideo Kojima depressed by GTAV

Iconic designer says he doesn't think Metal Gear Solid V can "reach that level," compared to Rockstar's open-world game.

Industry veteran Hideo Kojima has spoken out on Twitter to say he is "depressed" by Grand Theft Auto V, because he does not believe Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain can match it.

In a pair of tweets, he praised Rockstar Games, saying its upcoming open-world action game will raise the bar for developers the world over.

Like GTAV, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is an open-world game. Kojima's latest is in development for current- and next-generation consoles, while Rockstar's game is coming only to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
