Watch The Metal Gear Solid 5 Gamescom Livestream Here

[UPDATE] It's over!


[UPDATE 2] And it's over! Hope you enjoyed it.

[UPDATE] During a Q&A session that followed the presentation, Hideo Kojima made some interesting revelations:

  • If he could remake any of his past games, he would choose the original Metal Gear Solid.
  • One of the most memorable games he's ever worked on was Metal Gear.
  • If he could play the lead role in any movie, he would play a character who doesn't talk a lot; someone like Mad Max 2's Mel Gibson.
  • He watches one movie per day, but not when he's traveling. This keeps him motivated and energized.
  • He sleeps four hours a night, something his doctor isn't too happy about.
  • His original goal for Silent Hills was to create a game that made you "pee your pants," but now he wants it to be a game that makes you "s**t your pants."

The original story is below.

The special Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain preview event takes place today at 11 AM PDT / 2 PM EDT, and according to Konami, you won't want to miss it. The 60-minute event will be streamed live on Twitch, and you can watch the show right here on GameSpot.

Konami will reveal the "latest details" on Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain during the event, while Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima himself will "exclusively present new gameplay" for the title. This video will showcase what Konami describes as the "impressive capabilities of Kojima Productions' breathtaking FOX Engine and more."

According to Konami, what the publisher will show from The Phantom Pain will give you an idea of the "sheer scale and ambition" of the game. The special event will also include a live Q&A session with Kojima, as well as a "few surprises." Yesterday, it was revealed that Kojima is working on a new Silent Hill game with moviemaker Guillermo del Toro.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is coming to Xbox 360,Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4, though no release date whatsoever has been announced. During Sony's Gamescom briefing yesterday, Kojima showed off some new gameplay, and it was quite quirky.

I don't want the remake of MGS1. Kojima, if you have the resources then you should remake the first two Metal Gear games (the one happened at Outer Heaven and Zanzibar land). That way, you would be able to close up the epic journey of Big Boss. Also, I've always wanted to fight Grey Fox in a minefield and seeing Big Boss fires The Patriot with the intention to kill. All of that in cutting-edge graphic of course.

I used to watch a movie a day, and I did so for quite some time.

Don't ever remake Metal Gear Solid!

I'd love it if I could get away with just four hours sleep a night, but unfortunately my body falls back to sleep before my will-power wakes up.

"His original goal for Silent Hills was to create a game that made you "pee your pants," but now he wants it to be a game that makes you "s**t your pants!" Love that last part, should be awesome, shame Kojima can't take over Resident Evil too =P

I bet it won't be released on PC the same day as consoles. We will have to wait 6 months for the superior version.

We already know it's Silent Hill. Why are they still calling it P.T? We are not that dumb.

There are some parts that definitely surprised me during that teaser however, it's pretty freaky.


if they keep a first person perspective, how cool would it be if they used a combat system similar to condemned?

@destemido 

"well worth the wait :)"

Can you wait?  Knowing that it can be played at launch on the underpowered consoles? I don't think I can. I will have to purchase a PS4. It will just eat away at me.

@twisted_outlaw

But this is Silent Hill. It has already been confirmed. It has Daryl from the Walking Dead.

@BelaidKL A little jump scream I can understand, but screaming at the top of your lungs continuously? yeah... no

@DarkJedi8_basic @Tiwill44 If it's anything like the mess that was MEtal gear rising on PC, then no thank you. I hope it's more optimized and not full of game killing bugs and crashes.

@Garm31 @twisted_outlaw Yeah...but the demo is called PT. That's what they're talking about . It was a way to reveal Silent Hills, but does not represent the gameplay of Silent Hills.
