Metal Gear creator teases "shocking" PS4 announcement

Announcement will "blow your mind," says Hideo Kojima; Ground Zeroes announcement slated for Friday.

by

A "shocking" PlayStation 4 announcement will be made during Spike TV's special launch broadcast from New York City on Thursday evening, Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima said today on Twitter. This announcement will "blow your mind," he added.

Kojima is currently working on Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, as well as Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Separately, a Konami representative told GameSpot that it will make multiple announcements about Ground Zeroes content on Friday, though it is unclear if this is related to Kojima's tease.

Earlier this week, Kojima suggested that Ground Zeroes would receive PlayStation-exclusive content when the game ships in spring 2014.

Whatever announcement Kojima is teasing is not the only news that will come from the Spike TV broadcast. The debut trailer for The Last of Us' first single-player expansion will be shown during the event, it was confirmed earlier this week.

TLoU single player DLC?  Is that really what this announcement is all about?  It better be more than that or I'll be very disappointed.

I hate exclusive content in multi-platform games.  Why even release the game on a system if you're going to gimp it from the very beginning?  Contrary to what people say online, having content that my gaming brethren on other consoles can't play doesn't make me feel better about my life.

I know this isn't an original response, but Z.O.E. 3 maybe???

Perhaps he'll be announcing an extension to the collaboration with Ubisoft and Assassin's Creed, where the prelude Ground Zeroes will see us play as Big Boss via The Phantom Pain's Solid Snake using the Animus.

I don't know about the PS4 bit. Can't think of anything MGS related that'd be exclusive to PS4 and not PS3.

I hate when they do this. Just release the content and let me be the judge of how blown my mind is.

It will be a DLC , simple, and not  mind exploding news , because MG never had a DLC before.

MGSV available on PS4 as of today, that would be shocking! But that's not it, maybe he knows something about a new game Sony will announce.

It's so hard to take people in the industry serious when they say "shocking announcement" and the like, when such words and promises have been followed by mediocre DLC, 2 week timed-exclusivity deals or custom skins and accessories for your avatar.

I hope it's genuinely something amazing, it certainly wouldn't make sense to announce anything that wasn't a major news item a day before the console launches (as it would get lost in the noise of the launch) so there's that logic on its side to suggest it WILL be something big.

But still, I shall hedge my bets until we get the low down.

I think this article is misleading people. I don't think the main shocking announcement is one about MGS, it's just that Kojima knows about it and has made that comment. The announcement is a new game :) It'll be one of Sony's studios projects, they'v all been quiet so far holding back info but with the recent delays and slight lowering of enthusiasm over the launch line up Sony obviously feels it's time to pull one of their held back secret weapons out of the hat to freshen up the excitement that was once at fever pitch.

This will have nothing to do with hayter, guys he's done.  He'll never get snake again.  This could be about a possible MGS movie though.

I'm going out on a limb and betting he'll say that Hayter was never not doing Snake again.

I already dropped AssCreed. I will not let it ruin MGS too.

The Animus is the worst thing about AC. Why the fuck would anyone want that to continue to appear in AC, let alone make a cameo in other franchises?!

@themc_7 Agreed.  Isn't the announcement supposed to hype the actual content?  Why do we need to get hyped up for the announcement?

@denhoffi I doubt he'd get away with saying anything if he did. He's no doubt got a confidentiality agreement about anything he learns of relating to anything and everything.

@bultje112  I like that you added policenauts plus you have a Shenmue avatar.. you are a winner on both accounts.

@gilldominic I'll take that a bit further and say nothing really "shocks" me anymore. I guess it goes with getting older and seeing a lot more things. Even if it is something new and exciting, I'll still go meh until it gets a lot closer to release.

@berserks @TommyT456 The Xbox One titles haven't been reviewed yet though. If they get a couple of 7s and a 4.0 as well, then you might not feel the same? ;)

@gilldominic @berserks @TommyT456 The only game i care for that  i think  might ( surely will ) get a 7 or below is Ryze and i m only slightly interested in that one .

Anyway the only game that i m really not happy that is exclusive to ONE is killer instinct .Been waiting so long for  that one and it look great ( watched about 3 hour of gameplay ) .
