Kojima testing MGSV Ground Zeroes on PlayStation 4

Today, Kojima was once again testing Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, and took some photos while he was at it. This time, the game was running on the PlayStation 4. Unfortunately, Kojima didn’t take pictures of actual gameplay, but only of the title screen and the button of the game in the PlayStation 4 menu.

“Here we “begin” again today.”

Ground-Zeroes-PS4-Title-Screen

“And starting.”

It remains to be seen wether the title screens of the European and American versions will remain the same as the ones shown here, since Kaz has been removed from the box art for those regions.

    i hope Kaz remains. again, its just a nonsensical reason not to include hm on the cover. maybe ill just print my own and replace it.

    • William of Orange

      That’s a great solution. Maybe they print the Japanese cover on the back of the American/European cover. Like the female Shepard cover in ME3.

      • Nekkedsnake

        I’ve reprinted my own covers to replace torn ones or used games. but i did it at work where theres a laser printer and nice glossy paper, hehe.

        btw i recently got MET [mass effect trilogy] for xmas. not sure how ima put time but ill def try!

        • William of Orange

          Never played it. I know, I took a look at myself in the mirror and asked myself:”I love videogames, right?”

    • Nyxus

      Well maybe it does actually matter for the sales which means it’s not really nonsensical, just a shame. But I would have preferred a Shinkawa art over either the European/American and the Japanese cover.

      • Nekkedsnake

        if it was just kaz on the cover then sure. but snake’s face is plastered dead center. I’m not sure how different sales would differ whether or not kaz is there. sure ppl might not know who kaz is but then whats the point in playing GZ or TPP then if nobody played PW? by default kaz would need to be added to the cover because GZ is a continuation of PW. if ppl don’t play PW then the story would be lost in the wind since MGS is story driven. more credit should be given to fans for knowing who’s who, regardless of players new to MGS thru GZ.

        • Nyxus

          Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s a shame Kaz is gone. But I guess some thought has gone into that decision, however if it really works in terms of sales I can’t say…

          • Nekkedsnake

            btw i just refreshed the pg n was greeted with the new layout. looks good nyxus

          • Nyxus

            I was surprised by this new layout myself. 😛 I update the theme, expecting some minor tweaks, and then I saw this.

            Just to be clear, I didn’t create this layout myself, it’s a pre-made theme.

          • Nekkedsnake

            I figured since we both use WordPress. it’s a pretty powerful service. your new layout looks good nonetheless hehe.

      • BigBossWantsYou

        Kojima’s playing the game on the Vita!

      • Janeo

        I like the cover the way it is now I think they should save the shinkawa cover for the main game maybe they just wanted to show how realistic the characters will look

  • William of Orange

    Yeah, remove kaz from the title screen and while they’re at it, they should remove kaz from The entire game and deny his existence or him having any affiliations with msf or daimond dogs.

    • Nyxus

      I could actually see them leaving him on the title screen. The box art matters because it’s supposed to sell the game, for the title screen this isn’t a factor.

      • William of Orange

        How do you even sell this game to the general public? The game looks great, but this isn’t a annual COD with a unappealing mediocre story and lame plot twists which make you wonder why people even bother to write a decent plot for a annual COD game.

    • Nekkedsnake

      its just a huge wtf face palm honestly. its MILLER for goodness sake… integral part of MGS. Even more so since PW. and in TPP he gets mamed…

      • Nyxus

        Apparently Peace Walker didn’t sell so well in the west. Which is also quite a shame, people should really pick it up especially if they intend to play MGSV.

        • Janeo

          I agree I think it has actually become my favorite in the series there is so many things you can do it was oringinally psp only but it’s the biggest metal gear game ever

    • Janeo

      It is a bit silly but even Kojima said he didn’t realize that kaz was well received outside of Japan so there may be hope. Blaming it on the low sales of peace walker was weird since peace walker was included in the hd collection so I’m sure many others have experienced it

      • William of Orange

        Exactly! He’s probably referring to the poor sales on the psp, but the hd collection did a great job. PW is not my favorite installment, but I used to hate pw. Man, I never even took the time to listen to the audio files.

        • Janeo

          Why didn’t you like it, it’s the second metal gear game I ever played and I loved it right from the start. The game has an amazing story and characters the environments are smaller but are still fun to go through, I liked the boss battles but it would have been nice to fight one human boss and it has so many hours of bonus content. I think it has become my favourite metal gear over these four years I can’t wait to replay in anticipation ground zeroes

          • William of Orange

            Well I used to hate it, because a lot of important story and character backstory stuff gets explained in the audio files and I never took the time to bother about it. But i’ve unlocked all the audio files and listened to almost all of them ( I honestly don’t give a shit about Costa Rica’s landscape and skipped paz’s audio files about that). So I’ve started to appreciate it more and more over the years now. Still, I stick with mgs1. I love the transition of solid snake from being a dick without a goal in his life to a sarcastic yet charasmatic dick with a brighter future in mind, the overall story, gameplay, music, message at the end,bosses,theme,characters and their developments throughout the story,location,etc,etc.

          • Janeo

            I always really liked how you had to listing to audio tapes to learn more about characters if they tried to tell all the story’s through they would have been longer then mgs4. Mgs1 does have some of the most memorable moments like snakes talk campbell and Naomi in prison about how he killed his father, also I think the boss fight with Vulcan raven is one of the best in the series

          • William of Orange

            My favourite boss battle in mgs 1 has to be…..
            I actually never thought about that, they’re all unique: psycho mantis, fighting liquid on top of rex,Raven’s first encounter with Snake(tank),sniper wolf at the communication tower, all of them! But mgs1 had memorable and scenes with a touching display: sniper wolf’s death, gray fox telling Snake that he killed Naomi’s parents,Snake telling the colonel that he will save Meryl because he’s doing this for himself,psycho Mantis’s death….
            I’m rarely moved by “emotional” scenes in videogames and films, but mgs1 did a hell of a job! Not that I felt sorry for Sniper Wolf or anything, I was intrigued by Snake’s way of interacting with sniper wolf and actually in general.It felt relatable.. I’m about to dust off the psx and play some mgs1. Talking about mgs1 made me nostalgic enough to replay the game.

  • BigBossWantsYou

    Hey, I wanna start a petition to ask Kojima to make a Snatcher/Policenauts HD Collection for the PlayStation Vita. Anybody know how?

    • William of Orange

      Spam his Twitter account?

    • Nyxus

      You could use change.org and then post a link on Kojima Productions related Twitter and Facebook accounts.

  • Joseph

    OH MY GOSH! I first didn’t realize that this was the MGS Informer site! Love the new UI!

    • Nyxus

      Glad you do!

  • Cartmangus

    Neat, new UI, finally not broken in firefox anymore, lol. If I could make a request though, while this is not a change you made with the new look, you could do with more than 3 articles per page, at least 5 I think would be nice

    • Nyxus

      Well actually I want to change it so it displays some more text and sometimes an image below the headline, as I had with the previous layout, but if I can’t get that to work I’ll probably do 5 articles per page as you said.

      • Cartmangus

        Ah, alright, still think you can push 5 even with images though 😉

        • Nyxus

          Yeah, I guess so, I did it to save bandwidth but I could put a few more. Though I’m going to see if I can have a bigger part of them on the homepage first.

          • Cartmangus

            Alright hope it all works out. Liking the new theme

          • Nyxus

            I haven’t figured out yet how to display more of the posts on the homepage, so I changed it to 5 for now, like you suggested.

          • Cartmangus

            Alright, it’s still 3 for me though, lol

          • Nyxus

            Weird, works for me (in Safari, Chrome and Firefox).

          • Cartmangus

            hmm, doesn’t work in Chrome either

          • Cartmangus

            Actually started working now

          • Nyxus

            Ah, good!

  • MrVux007

    OMFG THE NEW SITE LOOK IS FABULOUS ! 😀

  • PrinceHeir

    hmm i’ll probably buy the PS4 version once they bundle it with Phantom Pain.

    so i’ll stick with my PS3 imported version ^^
