Should you buy the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 version of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes or the PlayStation 4/Xbox One version? Series creator Hideo Kojima weighed in on Twitter today.

"I've been asked which ver u should buy. The feel of play & impression's similar as it's been made multiplatform/multigen this time. Sense of realism & graphics looks much better in next gen. So I'd say current-gen for those who can't buy next gen just yet & upgrade later."

"FYI, the world ranking of mission result/trial grade in GZ differs to each platform. The feel of play/difficulty levels are the same as we consider slight difference parts found in each hardware, controls or frame rate."

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, a prologue to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, launches on March 18, 2014. The game will be available to download on PS4 or Xbox One, or in stores for PS3 or Xbox 360 for $30. PS3 and Xbox 360 owners can download the game for $20.

Ground Zeroes runs on the Fox Engine and features a day/night cycle, as well as dynamic weather conditions that affect gameplay. Missions are designed to help players understand the game's new control and gameplay mechanics.
