[IUPDATE] It's over!

The original story is below.

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima will answer your questions today in a special live Twitch broadcast beginning at 9 a.m. PDT/12 noon EDT. Presumably, he's here to discuss the two-part action game Metal Gear Solid V, but it sounds like anything is on the table.

"Hideo Kojima: Ask Him Anything" is the title of the Twitch stream.

You can watch the stream live in this post. Kojima is currently in London on a press tour for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, which launches for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 next week on March 18.

Looking for more Metal Gear Solid content? Be sure to read GameSpot editor Peter Brown's interview with Kojima and art director Yoji Shinkawa about the future of the Metal Gear Solid series.

PSN Store has removed the pre-order bundle in Australia which makes me think even those than have gone for the digital option will be put off for a week, which, if so, is pretty silly.

Will the ground zeroes get more DLCs/expansions, like the exclusive missions?

Oh he is definitely one of the titans of the japanese game industry (much like Shinji Mikami the godfather of RE) and IMHO he should be elected CEO of Konami but then he would have to quit some gaming involvements :( Anyway all I really burn to know is if the MGS series will be also available on the PC after the excellent job Platinum did on MGRR PC.

I like Hideo Kojima.  The man has done some excellent work.  Thumbs up from a fan.

Can we turn off the slow motion effect that happens every time you are spotted? Little training wheels like that can ruin an entire game. GTAV for example, felt entirely ruined, do to the screen flash that happens for each kill. I hope to god MGS5 doesnt follow the same fate. They need to stop dumbing down our games.

Just finished Ground Zeroes a couple of nights ago and as a Metal Gear fan through-and-through, it is a very good turn on the Metal Gear franchise.  Although it is extremely short, it makes up with the new style of gameplay and what we can look forward to in The Phantom Pain.  I do hope the controls are tightened a little more upon release, but overall if you're a fan of Metal Gear you will like Ground Zeroes.

That felt pointless... Really short and not a lot of great Q&A. The best question was about Portable Ops being canon, and the answer ended up practically being, some of it is, and some of it isn't, which doesn't make sense.

According to a Gamespot Article, Hideo Kojima said in statement the other day that Ground Zeroes was supposed to be part of Phantom Pain and that Phantom Pain is 200 times bigger.

So could someone ask Kojima why Ground Zeroes does not cost 1/200 of the price of Phantom Pain if that same content was supposed to be on Phantom Pain...

I wish I cared about what he had to say... But after his bate trolling and console favoritism which to me points to an amount of cash he got, IDC.

For every question that Kojima answers there will be a separate article put up on GS. This is 1 of at least 5 articles that will result from that one interview.  And if I had to guess He will not say anything we do not already know.

I hope the questions will be good, but for some reason, I doubt it... Yay, it's going to start soon though.

I bet he will start late and then say "kept you waiting, huh"
 I bet I could also beat Ground Zero before the stream finish, in fact, I already did.

@Dredcrumb9  I think so or play the game on hard difficulty.. I think on hard reflex is removed so if your spotted well your done for..

@NbAlIvEr10000  can you turn off the slow motion effect that occurs when spotted? If not, I wont buy this game.

@khuzko PC's can handle ANYTHING... more than you can say about consoles...

@golden1elite Completely agreed. I cancelled my preorder after he decided to show his PS & Xbox comparison and favor one brand over the other. It's pretty obvious he gimped the XB versions and was paid by Sony in some manner. He's going to lose some sales because of his comments and biased approach.

@spartanx169x i think only 1 article, and they will post only non-relevant questions same as they did with recent Gabe Newell q&a

It's called Reflex Mode and yes you can turn it off.

@porcupeth123

The thing is, he should have thought about what he was saying in the first place. If he tells us straight up. "We want to milk you". Then yea, I'll stop arguing.

Besides, you know DLC isn't a good thing (in general).

I think that what he should have done is split those "200 times bigger" into 2 games, that would justify both the over-priced Ground Zeroes and the under-priced Phantom Pain.

@blackace @golden1elite   It's rather obvious he exaggerated the graphical leap from the ps3 to the PS4 more so than from the 360 to the xbox one. The yellow XOF patch from the comparison trailer is just as detailed on the xbox one version in comparison to the 360 version, but he used the Fox patch on Snake's shoulder which has much less detail even on the PS4. There's nothing wrong with supporting his own though.

@blackace @golden1eliteNot sure if sarcasm or not...


It was a pretty good move by him honestly, he decided to be transparent and show what they had achieved on the different pieces of hardware. Everyone knows that right now devs are finding it harder to get 1080p60fps on the XB1 (which can very well change in the future as they learn more ways to get around the limits they have) so when images are posted comapring the two with minor differences why would you call it "obviously gimped" ?

@Saidrex I have seen Eddie take one article and make it into 3 or 4 more times that I can count. He is a master at click-bait.

@ShadowOfKratos  Milking? Don't be stupid. Hideo is generous and is releasing a piece of a game that is coming out in 2015 due to fan requests.
