Today Kojima is showing off tablet and smart phone functionality in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. You can use these devices as Snake’s iDroid and display the map on them.


“Today checking XBOX-ONE with multi tablet. I put out Snake’s terminal “iDroid” screen during the game.”


“Displaying the map, how convenient!”


“Of course, you can play not only w tablet but also w smart phone.(shot by Okamura-san)”

    That’s very cool this would have been great on wii u though much easier when your holding the screen

    • NegaScott128

      Yeah. This all seems like stuff that would work great on Wii U, but it’s not on Wii U. I honestly don’t know why it can’t be on Wii U; surely it can run this game if the 360/PS3 can.

      • Nyxus

        Maybe Konami just doesn’t think there is an audience for this game on Wii U.

        • NegaScott128

          That’s the problem. People won’t buy the Wii U because it doesn’t have games. Companies don’t make games for it because people aren’t buying it.

          • Nyxus

            Well it does have Nintendo games, which is probably why most people buy Nintendo consoles. But of course the lack of third party support has been a problem for Nintendo (on home consoles at least), and the fact that the Wii U isn’t up to par with PS4 and XB1 in terms of power won’t help them.

        I would be getting it for wii u if it was coming I don’t have a ps4 yet so I’m settling for ps3 so it’s really to bad it’s not for wii u it would work really well maybe the fox engine just wasn’t designed for wii u

    Congrats ; Kojimas Gang out again in front innovations.

    • The-Znake

      This is not an innovation. Battlefield 4 uses already an app for your smarthphone for helping friends with a map…

  • BigBossWantsYou

    Hey, not to be rude or anything, but your new format doesn’t work on my smartphone.

    • Nyxus

      That’s annoying. I’m afraid there isn’t much I can do about it since I’m just using a standard theme.

      • BossWantsYou

        It wasn’t working for a few days but it seems to be working now

        • Nyxus

          Okay, that’s good to hear!

  • Cartmangus

    Did you hear about the achievement list leaking, Nyx?

    • William of Orange

      Send a link, please!

      • Cartmangus

        Suppose there are some light spoilers in there, well one of them. Anyways here http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=752363

          Thanks, much appreciated!

          The game looks to be very short if that achievements list is any indication. If each mission has an achievement, then I count two main missions and 4 side-ops plus the an extra-op (deja jemais or deja vu depending on which console).

    • Nyxus

      Yes, just made a post about it. Didn’t check them myself though, I don’t want to get spoiled.

      • Cartmangus

        Very light on spoilers, one of the achievements could suggest something but it’s not anything absolute

  • Super Anonymous II

    Looks like we don’t need a radar

  • Johnno

    Can we use the Vita for 2nd screen functionality? As in, not just remote ply only, but also as a WiiU type solution as both controller and info screen?

    • Nyxus

      I don’t think they said anything about it, but it would make sense.

  • PrinceHeir

    cool feature that i won’t probably use XD
