Kojima visits LA studio and teases us with Metal Gear Online PlayStation 4 dashboard image

After leaving Las Vegas Hideo Kojima flew straight to Los Angeles, where the new Kojima Productions studio is based that is currently developing Metal Gear Online, and of course, he shared some pictures of his visit.

Update: More photos have been added (some of them uploaded by the MetalGearOnline Twitter account).

    Robert, regarding the PC Version in YOU we Trust!

  • XIFF-5

    congrats Nyxus! Thats AWESOME.
    My heart fell down when I saw the picture of MGO on the PS4, clearly at this time it is separated from MGS V,
    So it could be a beta version will be released in the up coming months? maybe? Reminds me of MGO2 Beta 🙂

    • They said they could not say anything about a beta at this point. And MGO is included with TPP.

      • turkishgamer35

        great job man you create a great site and its good to see not only mgs fans olso developers follow this site

        • Thanks!

          • SpiderJerusalem

            Nyxus you are above even The Boss. I hereby award you the title of Big Boss. You are a true patriot!

    Hey Robert, I know you will read this. Please add a mute chat function. I love playing online but I don’t love reading/listening to trolls and racists. Many players like myself don’t want input from other players, and just want to play the game. So please make this possible. Thanks!

    • warnerve

      Oh yeah… I hope it doesnt be like GTA V, where previously you couldn’t mute everybody at the same time. It sucked so bad hearing these 12 year olds screaming whenever you joined a new session…

    • AgitAngst

      +1 to this request. I’m sure they will add it!

      haha! You made my day! 😀

    • Shalashaska

      hahaha nice.
      Watching Ocelot do his thing in the fox engine. Wow. And Then you realize how much you missed it and go back to playing MGS3 to watch ocelot go at his revolvers again 😀

  • Golgari

    Dear KojiPro LA team. I guess you made the trailer. It was really great. Next time you should create another trailer but make something similar to what KojiPro JP does with gameplay presentation for the singleplayer.

    You should make it with narrative voice and show us everything what you’ve got. Don’t make it 30 min trailer. 5-7-15 min at best should be enough.

    and please. Show us more stealth in the multiplayer. I really enjoy Stealth mechanics in MGSV. I want to have more that. You did a great job by presenting a multiplayer for a mass audience. Make something for hardcore stealth players.

    Thank you.

  • turkishgamer35

    laggers and cheaters my only problem with the mgo2 especially tournament matches they ruin the game sometimes didn’t wanna play that mode so fix that problem rest is amazing and this video……. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-I0eIR3nr4

  • ObsessedGeorge

    Seeing that Kojima Productions visits Metal Gear Informer makes me very happy. It’s the greatest thing a developer can do. Visit a fan site and see what the fans like/dislike/suggest. The community here is amazing and the environment is friendly. And in Big Boss’ words…
    Nyxus, you should be proud. *salutes Nyxus and community*

    • Big_Boss88

      Indeed, well said George ;)! *Kneels before Nyxus and everyone else*

      • Thanks for always commenting and for coming back! 🙂

        • Alex

          Definitely the best fan site they can read. Remember though, that pic only confirms KojiPro LA visits.

          • Shalashaska

            hehe GOOD enough 😀

  • Janeo

    Well he certainly chose the right fan site to visit since when people do actually have criticism it’s constructive and not just for the sake of it.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yep, this is the only place we have civil people, talking about good points 🙂

  • No Place For Hayter

    Wow, would never even think people working there would be browsing this site, wow.

    In that case HELLO! you are looking at the right place, lol.

    This place is much be better known then I thought (or we have just seen one of the few, lol)

    • Rob

      I check this site pretty much everday. To be fair I check tons of sites pretty much everyday. You guys are awesome, but I’m looking in all directions…
      Speaking of which have you followed @metalgearonline yet? I check that most of all lately 😉

      • cardboardbox engineer

        Speak of the Devil 😉

      • moto hellogoto

        Hey Rob. The MGO trailer got me really excited! Keep up the amazing work you guys!

      • Big_Boss88

        Heya Rob :), you guys are awesome too! MGO looks damn awesome!

      • No Place For Hayter

        It is good to be checking tons of places, always glad to be considered important enough to be on that list, we all tend to post not thinking anyone will ever actually read anything we type so it is cool to see such a thing, aka the silent watchers 🙂

        Congrats Nyxus, I have the tendency to think of websites like this one as pretty unknown but I never even considered that people actually know about it lol.

  • 9Ocelot9

    hahaha nice! But pls stop teasing ! at least we should have a narrower release window.

  • Cartmangus

    That final image, that is just awesome.

  • wow! we are being watched!

    well, time to seize the the chance and say thanks to the guys over the studio for the hard work

  • wait wait wait. i just realized that the replica of the robotic arm is in scale, or am i wrong?
    i thought the one we saw some time ago was life size, could this mean that this smaller one was made for the collectors edition? ah? ah?!

    • MichaelPayneV

      Nice Catch.

  • hunner

    Please release mgo with mgs this time, I know they said it’s included but that picture makes me suspicious.

    • Maybe this is just for internal use, for the purpose of testing, and the final MGO will be on the same disc as TPP.

  • PrinceHeir

    Yo Metal Gear Informer getting famous by the day!!

    So they actually visits this site eh? That’s pretty awesome!

    Shoutout to @eeroheikkinen:disqus!

    • Big_Boss88

      Thanks ;D !

  • PrinceHeir
    • gerber

      Except that Kojima is not a fiddle… He plays a lot on his fans fiddles though

    • More like Mr. Chow haha

    • Will

      I think he is Decoy Octopus.

    • Big_Boss88

      Well whoever he really is, he knows how to do cool poses for photos… like a boss!

    • In Ground Zeroes he also wore pilot shades. 🙂

  • LukesAlike

    U wot m9?

  • Fraaancis

    Conspiracy time!
    Matrix reference:
    “Check monitors for MGO multiplay. Like Matrix.”
    Prosthetic arm holding red pill:
    Looks like Venom Snake chose red pill:
    One of the themes in MGS V can be about accepting the truth or calm live with lie and Venom Snake chose truth.

  • Solid

    Eye Have You!

  • oooo we’re being watched, now bring those damn fiddles so we can play it Nyxus lol
    Congrats man, o and Koji pro LA..you better have the servers running for a while on this one, lag free that is 🙂
    Also that dashboard image, is MGO3 going to be loaded separately from TPP disc? That would be an awesome idea imo, instead of loading it from the menus like MGO2.

  • MrVux007

    I wish one day i will go to Koji pro….and just bow before them and say Domo Arrigato for their years of work and dedication to true MGS fans….that will be one check on my bucket list one day :_) (and ofcourse get a painting of myself from Shinkawa-san) ^^

  • MichaelPayneV

    9 Days left till the PC Version of Ground Zeroes. Can’t wait!

  • MrVux007

    something is happening allright!

    • ObsessedGeorge

      Wha.. Wh… What the hell is going on?

      • Big_Boss88

        The good news is we’re getting more MGS info, the bad news is…we still can’t play it!

  • Big_Boss88

    Wooooooooah holy crap! I made it into that one image xD, I just now noticed it lol ;D.

    Congrats & thanks to Nyxus, our Biggest Boss and the whole community for making this the best MGS fan-site ever! I’m very happy and proud to be a member of MGI, especially now that I see we’re being noticed by KojiPro.

    Also this proves that we indeed are being watched o_O, but by the good guys. I wonder if Kojima-san checks MGI too ;).

  • Big_Boss88

    Just imagine when you turn on your PS4 after few months and you see this or TPP Start screen…and finally get to play !

    • XIFF-5

      I want to steal that PSN account 🙂

      • Big_Boss88

        That’s what I was thinking too >:)….

    Top 5 Reasons MGS V Will Kick Ass: http://youtu.be/-CWd892Aa_Y

      Amen brother, these are great top 5 reasons!

    – The 22nd chapter of Herman Melvilles 6th book ‘Moby Dick’ is called “Merry Christmas”
    – There’s a new Kojima Station episode scheduled for Christmas day!

  • Big_Boss88

    Anyone else love extended versions of MGS related songs, like PW theme :D? They kick ass imo and recently found this which is quite good <3.

    Also when watching this video's scenes…or all the trailers/demos so far really makes me wonder how damn huge MGSV is gonna be. I bet I'll play it first time at least 100 hours!

  • Alex

    By that dashboard picture, I’m certain MGO will have a separate release outside TPP, and probably day 1, for those that just want a great team/tactical multiplayer game. I wouldn’t be surprised if TPP just came with a voucher code for MGO, so that they can use the full disc space for TPP. And if they release of physical version of MGO, I would get it just to have it lol.

  • Daburcor

    This is probably the best one of all:

  • glitchbomb

    Yes! Now I have a real world photo of what I want my new prosthetic to resemble! Haha.

  • Ken Shiro

    What’s that in the model of Snake’s hand? It looks like an infinity gem.

  • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

    Cool how they visit MetalGearInformer, Nyxus. Must be the highlight of your, ahem, career, guess you could call it, haha. I can’t wait for this game and hope Kojima gives it his all.
