Pictures: Gamers trying out Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes on PC at Akihabara gaming event

At a gaming event held this Sunday in Akihabara, Japan, players could get their hands on Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes running on PC, playable at NVidia’s booth.

You can see the game being played on a 4K resolution monitor. The PC is equipped with 3 GeForce GTX980 cards, but according to Yuji Korekado, you’ll be able to achieve full HD with 60 FPS on a mid-range PC.

Tomorrow Konami will make some sort of announcement regarding Ground Zeroes, so that’s probably PC related as well.

    Nice PC.

  • MrVux007

    Its a real shame consoles don’t have 4K support :_( but then again,even if it did, 4k TV-s are expensive as hell right now….. good for the PC players tho,but im wondering if there are any graphical improvements?

    • A few: improved shadows and multiple simultaneous light sources: http://www.metalgearinformer.com/?p=16237

      • MrVux007

        Wonder why they didn’t put improved shadows and simultaneous light sources on current gen consoles …the game itself isnt that much demanding for current gen consoles…maybe they were pressed on time

        • César H. Sandoval

          The consoles can’t handle them, remember that this is still an open-world game designed to run at 60FPS and still look photorealistic.

          • MrVux007

            Did Kojima said that …did anyone OFFICIAL said that? no ? nothing to talk about here…..

          • César H. Sandoval

            Kojima said PS4 version was the best looking version right before Konami announced the PC port like a month later… So, I’m pretty sure if the console ones could handle more graphical upgrades, Kojima would sure as hell use them; Hideo is not the kind of guy to half-ass a game when he is capable of making it better.

          • MrVux007

            Well it seems this proves the contrary 🙂 …. ive seen many graphically complex games running a smooth 1080p + 60 fps running on PS4 ….. maybe the engine itself isnt designed equally well for all the platforms as he said it once…. keep that in mind,also keep in mind that he has an deadline to keep,PC wasnt planned for the making (hell even current gen console werent planned) and that prolonged the development quite a bit….going bit off the topic…. to prove my point the games that are more graphically complexed *OPEN WORLD*(that were running on PS4 only) then MGSV are : The division and The Witcher 3,Far Cry 4…..Kojima is a briliant developer and he will remain the best dev ever for me …..but he is also a well known *troller*/liar 🙂

          • MichaelPayneV

            No, no, no, both the PC and the PS3/X360 version were planed from Start, MGSV’s Lead Platform is PC, HELL, PC was the first ever platform mention when Ground Zeroes was revealed, at PAX 2012, so it shouldn’t be surprising at all that the PC Version is The Best Looking MGSV, and as we all know, it turned out that the PS4 and X1 are not “True Next-Gen”, so Kojima had to make some sacrifices for the PS4 and X1, like lowering the Weather Quality, the Draw Distance, and the Number of Simultaneous Lighting sources.

            Conclusion: If you really care about the improvements, then get the PC Versions of both GZ and TPP!

          • César H. Sandoval

            Well, to be fair I wanna add that Is not that the PS4 and X1 aren’t “true” next-gen, a good PC will always be capable or more stuff than a home console for videogames, that’s just reality, and it’s something that can’t be denied when a console keeps the same hardware for at least 5 years and a PC can be upgraded every 6 months or less.

            Hardware gets better every day, and if you can make a good PC, it will always be more powerful that something with cheap parts and a “fixed” configuration.

          • MichaelPayneV

            The reason i can’t call the PS4 and Xbox One True Next-Gen is not because today’s Mid-Range PC are more powerful, but because from the moment they released they were using 4 years old Hardware, which makes them from start not Next-Gen, since they didn’t had any Next-Gen Hardware.

            I remember when the PS3 and X360 released they had better hardware then Mid-Range PC’s from their time, with the PS4 and X1 is the total opposite.

          • MrVux007

            Again you missed the point…its not the hardware that makes it next gen,its the games 🙂

          • MichaelPayneV

            If you have 5 years old Hardware, you are not a Next-Gen Consoles, you are just and improved Last-Gen Console.

            Is both actually, because you can’t have Next-Gen Games without Next-Gen Hardware.

          • MrVux007

            Except PS4 is barely one year old 🙂

          • MichaelPayneV

            Except the Hardware from inside the PS4 is 5 years old, which makes it an improved Last-Gen Consoles since the launch.

          • MrVux007

            So what ur saying is ….PS2 is an improved pre-pre last gen,PS3 is an improved pre-last gen,and PS4 is improved-last gen….i wont even say how dumb that sounds….improved hardvare on consoles is not the same as an imrpoved hardware on PC since programing on consoles is easier and games are easily optimised for that …. also let me quate a well known programmer for this disscussion *Cort Stratton is a programmer at Naughty Dog and is also a member of Sony’s ICE team. He looks after PS4’s GPU driver / graphics API and as such he knows the ins and outs of the hardware. Stratton has shared his thoughts about claims that suggest that the PlayStation 4 is ‘already out of date’. Stratton acknowledges that the hardware is ‘no longer top-of-the-line’ but that is always how console cycles have turned out to be.

            First of all, Stratton was all praise for console programmers. Pushing out of date hardware is no easy task but still we are able to see games like The Last of Us that rivals AAA PC games in terms of visuals. “Squeezing 5-10 years of performance improvements out of a fixed hardware platform is what console programmers do best!,” Stratton tweeted.

            He also acknowledges that although the PS4 is no longer top-of-the-line hardware, it does not factor into quality of the games. “The HW is no longer top-of-the-line, sure. That’s how consoles have always worked & has very little to do with game quality.”*
            “For example: the PS3 is ~2005-era hardware, roughly. Compare TLOU (2013) to AAA PC games from 2005,”

            What he means is that game developing tool got significantly better over time.We can look the difference from the first Resistance to what The Last of Us looks like and we simply cannot define a console on pure specs alone.
            Granted, it helps but it isn’t limited to it.

          • MichaelPayneV

            No, the PS2 and PS3 when they released were Next-Gen, they were not using 4 years Old Hardware, the PS4 is from a Technical point a Mid-Range PC.

          • MrVux007

            Wich doesnt make it an improved-last gen -_- And keep in mind that A LOT has changed since the time of PS3 …especially in developer tools

          • MichaelPayneV

            Still, the PS4 from a Technical point is not New-Gen.

          • MrVux007

            It is 🙂 technical point on consoles are not the same as PC

          • MichaelPayneV

            Is still not powerful enough to run Games at 1080p 60fps that are not in Fox Engine.

          • MrVux007

            Hmmm lets wait a year when more games of 1080p 60 fps start coming….and PS4 allready has games in 1080p and 60 fps ; Battlefield: Hardline,Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare,Blacklight Retribution,Call of Duty: Ghosts,Diablo III: Reaper of Souls,Far Cry 4,Grand Theft Auto V,Killzone: Shadow Fall,Planetside 2,The Last of Us: Remastered,The Order: 1886,The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt,Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition,Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End,War Thunder,Wolfenstein: The New Order,

          • MichaelPayneV

            From this List, cut out the Remasters and the Cross-Gen Games, and then we’ll talk.

          • MrVux007

            And why would cut them out ? hmmm ? ok lets cut them out so we have Battlefield: Hardline,Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare,Far Cry 4The Order: 1886,The Witcher 3: Wild Huntncharted 4: A Thief’s End

          • MichaelPayneV

            Hardline is Cross Gen, so is Advance Warfare and Far Cry 4.

            So remains The Order 1886, The Wicher 3 and Uncharted, from which The Order is already confirmed to be 30fps, and under 1080p, so The Order is out, remains Wicher and Uncharted, the Wicher is 1080p but i’m pretty sure it won’t be 60fps, and Uncharted, Uncharted is an Exclusive, so it has to be 1080p 60fps, but i doubt it.

            So from your entire list remains The Wicher and Uncharted, 2 Games that “May” be 1080p 60fps on PS4.

          • Zero

            They were aiming for 60 fps but decided to go for 30 fps instead not cuz of PS4 lack of hardware …just simply cuy they wanted it to….also keep in mind that those cross gens games are still higly demanding…..as for Uncharted 4 it will be 1080 p and 60 fps….the trailer was running on those settings,and NaughtyDog we are talking here also for Witcher 3 version of PS4…its unoptimized for it ………

            In an interview with the lead developer of Witcher 3. Here’s one thing they said which caught me by suprise:
            On a topic talking about taking advantage of PS4’s GDDR5 and other graphical features they said

            “We are not aiming to develop special graphical features for any of them”

            So basically they said the PS4 wont be taken full advantage of. That to me is unacceptable.

          • MichaelPayneV

            “but decided to go for 30 fps instead not cuz of PS4 lack of hardware …just simply cuy they wanted it to”

            Do you really believe that Bull sh*t, that “30fps is more Cinematic” Lie, come on, no one does 30fps because they want, no one wants 30fps, is because the consoles just can’t handle any Game at 1080p 60fps.

            With wicher, that is because the PC Version is already demanding, so porting it to Consoles is as good as it can get.

          • César H. Sandoval

            Is next-gen when compared to the previous consoles man; PCs are a league of their own.

          • MichaelPayneV

            That’s also True.

          • César H. Sandoval

            You clearly need to play a lot more games on consoles and PCs, then, so you can form a more realistic opinion on why a good PC is stronger than a console and capable of more stuff if the developers are good enough.

            If anything, the console versions would be the ones delaying progress, because MGSV like every high-end game nowadays is being developed first in a PC and the ported to console standars, so making it run smoothly in a PC is the very first thing that gets done, and later the features are modified so a console can handle it with their more-limited hardware. Witcher3 and Farcry4 are also both on PC and consoles, so be my guess and take a lot for those versions, you will se with no shadow of doubt that they will also look better on a well-tuned PC.

            I’m not a “graphics-whore”, so as long as MGSV runs well on my PS4, I don’t care at all if the PC version has more light sources, polygons or resolution. hell I wasn’t even expecting 60FPS for a console, so I’m already getting more than I asked for.

          • Zero

            Except the guy has a point about PS4…they didn’t used its full
            potential for this game….and im glad he mentioned The division the
            game that is trully next gen and it was seen running on PS4…and you
            cant denie that game looks 2x better then MGSV …. PS4 and XBOXOne will
            run more complex game for years to come …take for example PS3,they
            said that MGS4 pushed the console to its limits but then came Uncharted 2
            and 3,(yes they are linear,but thats not my point) …if your all about
            the *open world* games then came Skyrim,GTAV and now MGSV (the game
            that is truly pushing the LAST gen consoles to its full potential) not
            PS4/Xbox One …they probably used up around 50%-70% of its potential
            for this game….(whats my proof,you may ask) well lets see we allready
            have 5 games (open world games) and MORE will come on consoles that will
            be really complex graphically then MGSV….PC will have better visuals
            and hardware then the consoles for a decade thats for sure,but im not
            talking about that im talking about them NOT USING the max out of
            consoles….CONCLUSION;your obliged to your opinion,aswell as this
            guy(MrVux007),me and other people are…hell they arent even using up
            the max out of PS4 for Witcher 3 aswell…PC gamers will claim that
            current gen consoles are not trully next gen,and yet they are and will
            run those game with a little resolution and graphical differences…the
            only reason why the PC will have those graphical improvements (not
            including 4k now,since the consoles cant support that for some reason)
            is for the sales on that platform(cuz most of the people who bought it
            on consoles wont buy it if it aint *superior* to consoles) and they are
            short on time,wich is all understandable…i just cant stand people
            saying trash about consoles and calling them *not true next gen* when
            they are proving the otherwise….there will come a point when we will
            have to redefine what “PC gaming”
            and “console gaming” actually mean. The line between the two will
            disappear…(bit off topic now,cuz im bit aggravated by the ego of some people) its a shame for the consoles tho but as César H. Sandoval
            i’m not a “graphics-whore”, so as long as MGSV runs well on my PS4, I
            don’t care at all if the PC version has more light sources, polygons or
            resolution.* 🙂 ty for that

          • César H. Sandoval

            MGSV already looks better than most PS4 games and is still open-world and runs at 60FPS, something that a lot of games also have a trouble with in the console; so excuse me if I trust KojiPro a little more than you guys when it comes to terms about who told the truth about using the full potential of the PS4 or not.

          • MrVux007

            And when did i say that consoles are better graphically then PC ? read my post again….its not about graphics superiority,its about using the full potential out of every platforms for wich they didnt do for the consoles….the only explanation for this would be the lack of time and/or they need good sales on PC aswell 🙂

          • MichaelPayneV

            He is using, Fox Engine is designed to use 100% of each Platform’s Hardware, so Ground Zeroes looks as good as it can.

            Why is the PC version getting more features? Because Kojima isn’t Ubisoft, Kojima doesn’t do Parity, and i’m glad.

          • MrVux007

            Ill post something i posted 3 months ago,upon wich you admited you were wrong….the reason why current gen is let down graphically cuz of last gen…but since PC was newly/freshly built now it will have those improvements current gen was denied of ….also to prove my point take for example Planetside 2 wich looks better now on Ps4 then on PC cuz it was freshly built (AFTER the PC release)

          • MichaelPayneV

            That’s because it was made for Last-Gen, the Assets are Last Gen, but that doesn’t mean that those assets don’t use the entire PS4.

            The point is that the reason Ground Zeroes seems like is not using the entire PS4 is because of the Last-Gen Assets, which creates the feeling that is not a demanding game.

          • MrVux007

            Its not a feeling mate…its a fact,….a fact wich will be even more correct as the years come… more and more games will come that are graphically complex (hell we allready have The Division in 2015 and Witcher 3 ) just look at he PS4 footage and then tell me that GZ is demanding compared to this game….. programing on consoles and PC are different cuz the consoles HW was never the main factor for developing games on it …. you should have known that by now http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84OIuVdurUQ

          • MichaelPayneV

            Sorry to disappoint you, but this is PC Gameplay, not PS4, it was said by Ubisoft, so what you are seeing is definitely not how The Division will look on PS4 or X1.

            About Ground Zeroes Graphics, the only things that stops it from being Current-Gen (New-Gen) are the Low Polygon Models and Low Res Textures, which can be fixed on PC with Tessellation and a Texture Pack.

          • MrVux007

            They ran PC footage equlavent to console graphic settings… and those textures will be the same on PC aswell….the only difference is shadows,drawing distance, and number of objects

          • MichaelPayneV

            Ubisoft already confirmed that they had to downgrade it after the PS4 Gameplay you posted, and that the X1 will have the Best looking version thanks to DX12, so yeah.

          • MrVux007

            and here is the PS4 footage 🙂 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9gE79PrBn8

          • MichaelPayneV

            Good enough, but i could bet that it looks like this because the resolution is 900p and 30fps.

            From what i have seen the only games that the PS4 can handle at 1080p 60fps are Fox Engine Games and PS3 Remasters.

          • Zero

            WoW dude,can you wait for the game to come out first then start to comment …. this game will be PROBABLY be 900p and 30 fps…but hey………..remember who is making the game….yea ,UBISOFT nough said

          • MichaelPayneV

            Yes, Ubisoft with their Parity BS, Ubisoft that Downgraded Watch Dogs on PC because the PS4 and X1 could not handle that Graphics, Ubisoft who made AC Unity a horrible Optimized and buggy pile of crap, yes, that Ubisoft that is becoming EA.

          • Dizz

            It’s Ubisoft. Their trailers for Watch_Dogs had graphical features that weren’t even in the released game. Ubisoft is not a good example of graphical achievement, considering they are liars/con artists. Lol.

          • César H. Sandoval

            Use the logic, man. If it comes about “potential” The PCs have a lot more of that to offer than every console out there, because you can always upgrade a PC and the console hardware is locked, so like it or not, every game will run better on a well-made PC that it will ever do on a console, you just have to face that reality.

          • MichaelPayneV

            No, but do we really need people like Kojima tell us obvious things that anyone with Brain can deduce?

          • MrVux007

            and what would that be ? that PC are better then consoles (hardware wise) …no shit Sherlock! 😛 i wasnt even disscussing that 😉

          • MichaelPayneV

            Then why the hell are you surprised that the PS4 version doesn’t have the improved lighting and Draw Distance, when you said it yourself that “PC are better then consoles (hardware wise)”?

          • MrVux007

            Im surprised cuz the consoles can have the same thing ? this isnt a game where the hardware plays a huge role…..it isnt even current gen mate …if you dont understand that,then read couple of articles and do some research…

          • MichaelPayneV

            “Im surprised cuz the consoles can have the same thing ?”

            No they can’t, If the PS4 and X1 could handle that better Lighting i’m pretty sure Hideo would have put it already on Consoles as well, especially the PS4, the Sony Console.

            Another thing, the Prisoners and Soldiers arms going trough Snake Arm is enough of a proof that they had to make big Sacrifices, and by the way, the arm glitch is still in TPP as well.

            Like i said, if you are still surprised about it, and want to experience the Best looking version, then get MGSV on PC.

          • MrVux007

            So basicaly your making ur making a disscuassion with what you THINK against what i KNOW(facts,proofs) ? yea , i was correct when i said that u are fanboy PC allright…and fanboys see nothing but their own opinion clearly…..this disscussion is over,and you sir are living in a denial…the PC version will look better but its not becouse of consoles lack of ability to have the same features(accept the 4K resolution ofc) have a nice day…and saying things like *i proved him wrong*(even tho you didnt,not even once mate) after this comment is pretty low but if that makes you feel better be my guess 😛

          • MichaelPayneV

            No, i’m not a Fan-Boy, i’m just aware that the PS4 is not as powerful and Developers expected it to be, developers like Hideo.

            I will get a PS4, i started Gaming on PS2, yeas, i brought a PS2 for “MGS3: Subsistence” and “GTA: San Andreas” then San Andreas came to PC, so i got mad at Rockstar for making me buy a PS2, but the reason i don’t regret buying a PS2 is MGS, and ever since then i moved to PC Gaming, i skipped the PS3.

            So i will get a PS4 when the time is right, i wanted to buy it for MGSV, but then it got announced for PC, so when an Exclusive will catch my attention, like Uncharted 4 after i’ll see some footage, i will buy one and keep it for Exclusives, and use my PC for Multiplatform Games like GTA and MGS.

          • MrVux007

            So you also read Kojima-s mind…how cute 🙂 keep digging that hole

          • MichaelPayneV

            No, i’m just a Fan of his work, and i fell in Love with the Series after i finished Snake Eater, i liked it so much that i played MGS1 and 2 after it.

            By the way, you are not funny at all.

          • Zero

            And does that mean you know what Kojima thinks or does….hell not even i dont posses such a power…and i am a fan of his since MGS2

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well i know that he is unpredictable, and that we kept talking about PC in the last 2 years, saying how we was a PC developer before going to Consoles, and how hard it was to develop for PC, and how easy is now.

            Oh, and i also know that he likes creating suspense, using “Outside The Box” methods to announce thing (The Phantom Pain, P.T. being Silent Hills), doing a tons of Forth Wall breaking moments in his Games, giving you liberty in his Games, doing whatever you want, so i could say that i know Hideo Kojima the Game Director.

          • MrVux007

            So ur telling me what i allready know (and 90% fans do)that he is unpredictable……that doesnt make them say *i know Hideo Kojima the Game Director.* hell even if i was a close colegue of his i coulnt say that…rly cheeky to say something like that

          • MichaelPayneV

            Hideo Kojima The Business Man is Unpredictable, however Hideo Kojima the Director has a Pattern, and a goddamn Great one.

          • MrVux007

            Hmmm well that beats me….all i can say that he will make good games…..but how he makes them and how well they will/could be i dont know….perhaps ur better educated then me in that…but still the fact stands there is still room on those consoles….

            let me just point out something thinking and knowing something is not the same thing …not saying u are wrong,just pointing out something,just cuz they are doing this on a PC doesnt mean they couldnt have done it on consoles

          • MrVux007

            So not the lack of time,not lack of funds,not fixing bugs and preping the gameplay presentations n PR bs wouldnt never effect the games development …..Gz was released before its time cuy of those things you know?

          • MrVux007

            Wich doesnt rly help ur statement *Im sure that if Kojima that and Kojima that* ….hell not even i dont know whats going on in his studio nor can i ….especially in his mind….all i see that there is a lot of room for improvement that he didnt use….and no im not even trying to be funny…. : /

            English please.

          • MrVux007

            Let me translate for you *less understandable folk*….he mean to say that being a fan of someone doesnt preferebly make u his soulmate…that is that you will know what he could and WILL do…. to quate you *No they can’t, If the PS4 and X1 could handle that better Lighting i’m pretty sure Hideo would have put it already on Consoles as well, especially the PS4, the Sony Console.

            Aye he is a fanboy allright 😛

          • MrVux007

            But he does have a point tho…some of those games i mentioned above are cross gen…. checked it later …but still that constant console bashing is rly going on my nerves

          • MichaelPayneV

            Anyway, what is your problem if i bash Sony, is not like i bash you, because like me your are a Customer, a Gamer, so i have nothing with you bud, it was your decision, i don’t agree or disagree with it.

          • MrVux007

            We dont mind if someone bashes consoles correctly (like actually using facts for that) but we mind when someone says…ahhh those consoles simply cant run that or it doesnt have the hardware for it without any proper evidence for that…

          • MichaelPayneV

            I used FACTS, i talked about PS4 from a Technical Hardware Point, and the FACTS say that is not a Powerful Machine for today’s Standards.

          • MichaelPayneV

            You just created an account to agree with you.
            How pathetic, so pathetic.

          • Guest

          • Zero

          • MrVux007

            You do realise acc is a well used slang/expression in the internet community for ACCOUNT? we use it all the time -_- …dayum mate

          • Zero

            lolz 😀

          • MrVux007

            Ahh sorry,my bad …saw the rest of the comment section…

        • MichaelPayneV

          Is simple, from a Technical Point (Hardware)

          PC > PS4

          • MrVux007

            Again why are you even mentioning that ? did i say the contrary ? i only said that they are not using the full out of PS4 specifically…

          • MichaelPayneV

            You just asked “why they didn’t put improved shadows and simultaneous light sources on current gen consoles” so i answer your question, and then you say “why are you even mentioning that ?”

            Why, as i said, you asked, so decide already, you want an answer, or not?

          • MrVux007

            Maybe cuz ur answer isnt valid 🙂 and you mentioned something completely un-attached to my question…

          • MichaelPayneV

            Are you fukkin kidding me, how is invalid, PC’s from a Technical point are better then Console, so make up you bloody fukkin mind, do you want an answer, or you’re just trolling like an idiot?

          • MrVux007

            Calm down…im not asking why is PC better then console from a techical point …im asking why they didnt include the upgrades they could have put on consoles just aswell(and yes consoles can support those features)…. and i dont want anymore answers from you mate cuz this disscussion is going nowhere…you allready accused me and my mate for making double account and obviusly im going on your nerves …so lets agree to disagree before more damage is done eh?

          • MrVux007

            Cuz ur using logic for developing games for a PC(where if it doesnt have good nough hardware it cant run a game) where on consoles (hardware is not the main element for making a game) there are a lot of games that prove that point ….

          • MichaelPayneV

            You know what, ramble all you want, because this discussion or whatever this Travesty is, is Over.

            End of Discussion!

          • MrVux007

            Touche…likewise mate

          • MrVux007

            Actually now it makes sense…..youre Venom Snake :D,nah deffinately not having this disscussion with you (you know the reasons why) 🙂

          • MichaelPayneV

            Yes, i am, i changed my Nickname back to MichalPayneV

      • metal gear rising on PC features raiden’s hair shadow, expect something similar in GZ, now the alpha channeled textures will generate shadows (if you look at the TGS day mission you can see some stuff missing on the shadows)

    4k doesnt make any sense on games. Details are not enough to make it work. I would prefer tessellation a thousand times more.

    • You serious? It makes a huge difference. Go to deadendthrills.com and compare his screenshots of games that run at increased resolution to screenshots elsewhere. Even low poly and modest or older, graphics-wise, games look fantastic with GeDoSaTo downsampling. Check out the Killer7 or Final Fantasy 13 or STALKER screenshots. Even something like P.N. 03 is greatly improved from the increased resolution.

      Tessellation is great but without the crispness of higher resolution that extra detail is going to be not as apparent.

      • Yaro

        I’m a 3D professional artist. I know what 4k looks like. I have seen screenshots. There is no huge difference I’m sorry. 4k makes sense on photography and video. Video games this days doesnt have the textures and details such as hair and fur to take advantage of it. Its a waste of resources. Sure it would look crisper, which makes it look even more fake and makes you more aware of low poly models. Tessellation is a bigger change. If we get to have close to zbrush models on games thats a game changer. 4k for games is just a gimmick and a waste. its not like comparing SD to HD where UI and pixels took advantage of it and made a huge difference. Trust me… I’d rather have better shadows, more polys, displacement maps, hair, particle effects, more dynamics, collisions, more accurate deformations, render passes,better reflections and refractions, subsurface scattering than having a 4k resolution. Bluerays looks quite real on 1080. Dont be fooled.

        • No Place For Hayter

          Agreed, we need to stop trying to have higher resolutions when we have bigger issues to due with when making games look amazing and realistic, cheap and 2D foliage anyone?

          • Yaro

            yup. How awesome would individual leaves look on trees. With trunks with higher resolution with real cracks and bumps.

  • moto hellogoto

    Can’t wait to get my gtx 770 and play this at full hd and a smooth 60 fps. I might have to take a day off of work just to enjoy it properly.

  • moto hellogoto

    Does anyone know what motherboard that is?

  • It can’t really be called a mid-rage pc with 3 GTX 980’s

    A mid-tower perhaps.

    • No, but what he said (I believe) is that you can achieve 1080p 60fps with mid-range. The one on display is capable of 4K, so that’s a different story.

  • MichaelPayneV

    Now, has anyone recorded any Off-Screen Gameplay?

  • MichaelPayneV

    If a Mid PC can run it at 1080p 60fps, then i’ll be able to play it at 720p 30fps with Graphics at Low with my 2 GB of Ram and 2.66 Dual Core, and Nvidia GT 630 2GB VRAM!

    • Mynameislol

      yes you can.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Good to know, at least it will run better then Watch Dogs and AC Unity.

        • Big_Boss88

          I’ll maybe get AC:Unity next month, just to make sure it has been fixed by then ;).

  • PrinceHeir

    Good stuff 🙂

  • Yaro

    Im afraid I’m going to be dissapointed with the Pc version. I always wantend higher poly models and assets

    • MichaelPayneV

      With Tessalation it won’t be that notticable.

      • Yaro

        will the PC game have tessalation?

        • MichaelPayneV

          Yep, someone who played it said that Ground Zeroes has Tessellation.

    I was just thinking about camp omega appearing in phantom pain and I tought for a moment, what if outer heaven ends up being camp omega. We have seen kaz and snake talking in what appears to be the spot where paz was being held. Also if Hideo told us that it’ll be like nothing we have seen in the gaming industry. What if big boss when he is finally turned all evil goes to camp omega, and proclaims it as his and he expands it to finally be outer heaven. I know outer heaven is in africa and camp omega is in cuba but with Hideo Kojima anything can happen. On top of that what if after all of that , the prisoner that we rescue and tells us the same words that snake told chico after their 1st meeting was indeed interrogated by big boss himself I mean the shadow of snake in ground zeroes is not his so all of that could be some sort of vr training. I know i’m probably wrong and that all of this sounds insane but who knows with hideo the guy is insane

    • MichaelPayneV

      If Camp Omega in TPP wasn’t exclusive to GZ Owner you would be right, but since is an optional feature that not everyone will get i bet you can make Camp Omega your second Mother Base.

      • anonymous

        I was thinking about that too, but what if its just like a cutscene or something that you can’t play, for the one’s that don’t own ground zeroes. Us that have the game we’ll be able to play around camp omega. that’s what i think. I could be wrong.

        • MichaelPayneV

          Maybe, but i don’t think Kojima will do this to people who paid full price for TPP but don’t own GZ, i think the Camp Omega thing for GZ Owners is something Cool, but not necessary, making the Game feel incomplete without it.

  • quintimnia

    my pc is a ground zero comparing to this…

    • MichaelPayneV

      I see what you did there.

  • David Calderon Huerta

    Yep, Nice Pc ! Oo

  • Big_Boss88

    Folks please stop spamming the article with your endless battle between Console and PC tech :(. These discussions always explode when everyone is disagreeing with each other…

    I thought there would’ve been some other kind of comments here when I saw 128. But who am I to tell what you can do…I just would enjoy reading the articles comments more without it being a battlefield.

    • MichaelPayneV

      I know, that’s why i deleted my entire conversation, i fukked up, i’m sorry.

      • Big_Boss88

        Np my friend I forgive you ;)! I was wondering why they were all deleted. Anyway, I sometimes post things too that I later feel stupid about etc, especially if got a bad day at work etc or if tired :P.

        I hope I didn’t sound angry in my comment lol, because it wasn’t my intention at all. But just wanted to point out that, I hope this wouldn’t turn out to become like one of those youtube’s comment sections :D. Peace <3.

  • Datguy8923

    So will mods be happening or is Konami gonna be a party pooper?
