Check out this photo of all four versions of MGSV:GZ running simultaneously

With Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes launching in a few weeks, this marks the first time a new installments in the series is being developed not only on several consoles at the same time, but also two different console generations. Kojima constantly switches between different versions doing checks.

This is what the setup at Kojima Productions looks like right now: four different versions running simultaneously. From left to right: Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

    Snake is ashamed in the x360 version, won’t even look at the camera. (kidding)

    • ObsessedGeorge

      Man, I don’t take sides in console wars, but that was a nice observation!

  • Cartmangus

    Next-Gen versions even on a shitty camera photo look like they have better lighting and nicer colors, Boss lookin a little pale in that PS3 shot. Man it really sucks to be stuck with the ps3 version. After playing so much of the HD Collection I now want all my MG games in 60 fps

    • ObsessedGeorge

      Maybe it’s just the old fat PS3 dying. πŸ˜›

    • Nyxus

      Just get a PS4 already! πŸ˜›

      • Cartmangus

        lol, I would if I had the money but I need a new PC before I can think about that

    • solidmatt

      But did you enjoy MGS1, 2, or 3 any less when they ran at 30fps? Did it mean anything to you then?

      • Cartmangus

        MGS2 always ran at 60fps though πŸ˜‰

        And no, but I didn’t have any other options then, now I know there’s a better version out there and I’m playing the inferior one and that kinda blows wouldn’t you say?

        • Janeo

          I’m gonna be getting ps3 to an I dont mind at all Kojima said that the next gen versions will look a bit better but gameplay will be identical the graphics still look amazing on ps3 anyway I think we will forget we are playing an inferior version when we get our hands on the game

    • Fredy Carius

      i think he’s not pale, there’s light coming from outside of the helicopter just in this version (you can tell by the hair too)

  • Revenge of Anonymous

    Where’s the fifth?

    • CΓ©sar H. Sandoval

      The Dreamcast version? LOL

      • Revenge of Anonymous

        V on PC

        • Cartmangus

          It’s in our hopes and dreams

    • Nyxus

      These are all the platforms that is has been announced for.

  • Rob Machado

    Can’t wait!

    [Pretentious tone] As you can see, the differences are quite… drastic. XboxOne (OR XBONE HNYAHNYA) obviously has screen tearing issues and isn’t running at native 1080p, Conclusion: Kojima is a sellout. Fact!

    • JGPliskin

      Where the fuck do you see any tearing in the XB1 version? And how the
      fuck can you tell its not native 1080p? The quality of this pic is so
      shitty that you can’t even see a real difference in resolution between
      last- and newgen! Only thing you can see is slightly better textures
      and lightning on newgen.

      • EimajOzear

        Come onnn, it was clearly hyperbole with the “Pretentious tone” indicator πŸ˜›

        • JGPliskin

          OK. I forgive you sir πŸ˜€

  • Kaniebas

    Yup, getting this on PS4.

    • Nyxus

      Me too.

  • Batzi

    Anyone notices that the screws/bolts on the PS3 & 360 versions are not there?

    • Nyxus

      You have a good eye! It also looks like the letters of the logo are a lot sharper on the PS4 and XB1 versions.

      • Batzi

        The PS4 from the picture looks the sharpest overall. I am just wondering if Kojima is keeping small graphical details out of the last-gen versions for better framerate.

        In any case, the bolts/screws could be there, it’s just they are obviously not as detailed as the PS4 version.

      • solidmatt

        Thing is, without the side-by-side comparison, it’ll be hard to appreciate those things. All you’ll be able to say is that it looks good. But people with Xbox 360 and PS3 will say the same thing looking at their screens. In the end, what does one really gain by having the next-gen version?

  • Shalashaska

    God I wish I had a PS4.

    I’m thinking I’ma just go ahead and get it for PS3, and then later if they end up releasing like a Phantom Pain + Ground Zeroes collection/bundle then I’ll get it for PS4. (Although more than likely, I’ma get it on PS3, then the digital upgrade for PS4, and then if it ends up getting bundled with Phantom Pain I’ll buy it AGAIN because… you know… Metal Gear and what not.)

  • MrVux007

    the lighting does the trick…..

  • PrinceHeir

    nice work!!
