Big Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain announcement coming within the next 48 hours

Brace yourselves, Metal Gear fans. Kojima Productions Japan just tweeted this image:

MGSV-Announcement-March-2015

The announcement is coming Wednesday March 4th at:

  • 6AM PT (West coast)
  • 9AM ET (East coast)
  • 2PM GMT (Europe)
  • 1AM AET March 5 (Australia)

If you head over to the official site, you can see the countdown in real time. You can actually click on the Phantom Cigar, which will speed up the time. But don’t get too excited – this function is ‘unavailable’, the iDroid tells us. Well played, Konami.

MGSV-Official-Site-Countdown

IGN is also teasing ‘big MGSV’ news, planned to be unveiled at the same time, together with a special message from Hideo Kojima. It seems very likely the announcement is regarding the long awaited release date.

Update: Looking through the source code reveals the words ‘release date’ and ‘preorder’.

    Let’s hope it’s the release date! And if it is, let’s hope it’s really soon.

  • XIFF-5

    let’s just say it is not the release date, if it happened to be? at least we are not disappointed.

  • StealthyBigBoss

    So excited!!!!!!!!!!

  • Nevermind. This is it brothers! The day we’ve been waiting is coming!

    • Edward Wokhands

      yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
      YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYES! They played me like a damn orgasm!

  • Yofiel Malachi Yacov

    I’ll believe it when I see it. For me, sounds like another dick tease.

  • Guest

    Anybodyknows if there will be a live stream??? İ dont want to wait until 17:10

  • FOX

    Does anybody know if there will be live stream???

  • NakedSnake85

    Wait its not 48 hours.. its 24 hours

  • Liquid25

    I know. The thing everyone was waiting for: Another chicken cap!

  • Tibor

    everybody is expexting release date but I fear that they are gonna delay it. I’m scared but I trust Kojima. can you imagine if it would be a release date for like 2 weeks from now ? 😀

    • Bramdeman

      Mmm in that case the timer is a bit strange.

  • Golgari

    This is a release date. Phantom Cigar is a hint on to something.

    Personally I want a trailer. 5 minute would be nice. I need my Big Boss fix ASAP.

    • Edward Wokhands

      I wonder what it’s a clue to. It fast forwards 20 minutes. Maybe it’s just a troll, you know like “you wish this worked don’t you?”

  • Big_Boss88

    HELL YEAH! Give me a trailer 😀 !!!

    Even if Master Kojima is not going there, we still might get something amazing 🙂 ! I’m 95% ultra hyped now, but saving that remaining 5% for any possible disappointments.

    • Shalashaska

      Exactly.. i was skeptical because there is no news of kojima being there? is there? Only that Robert guy from MGO.. Yes he is an important guy ofcourse – But for a release date.. you’d think kojima would be there.. maybe it IS a MGO beta announcement or perhaps a release window rather than a proper date. Although.. there could be possibilty that kojima is staying back for KJstation.. who knows.. either way.. is there any news on him being at GDC ?

  • Bramdeman

    F*ck yes!!!!

  • Ricardo Oe

    Yeahh!!! boy…i am in esctasy…

  • DarpaLT.Sigma_

    Today, at metal gear informer, hype train went from 0 to 100 mph REAL QUICK ! GIVE ME A MGO3 BETA xD yessssss

  • Shadow Rex

    Pre-order Editions with no release date lol.

  • incneet

    23:58:14 —– 1
    2+3=5
    5+8= 13 -> 13 weeks to june
    14+1=15

    well well V/V/201V

    • DarpaLT.Sigma_

      Let’s not do the phony math stuff, let’s jus hope we all get TPP….. THIS MONTH!! $_$ muuuuuuuuuuuuuussst pre order

    • Edward Wokhands

      June is VI.

  • Shadow Rex

    MGS VI reveal hahaha

  • Big_Boss88

    Hmm dammit not sure will I be able to watch it live, if there is stream ’cause of work :C.

    Big announcement: “Our beloved fans around the world, we’re sorry to announce that MGSV will release in 2016.”
    All fans die because of shock :O…..

    • vic boss

      Dude imagine if after everything it indeed comes out this month.

      • Big_Boss88

        O_O that would be ….pretty good. Maybe all of Kojima’s tweets about running into problems was all a big lie :O !

        • Shadow Rex

          Hmmm could be hahaha

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS (!) (!) (!)

          • Shalashaska

            Them t.. ahem .. nothing.

          • Will

            Man this image is soo epic! Hahaha.

        • stagueda

          That would be an interesting surprise

        • Jonny McLaurine

          Never thought he was lying. Figured he was talking about the problems that have caused the lack of info past six months and other bugs that delayed thier release plans in the past

      • DarpaLT.Sigma_

        It is coming this month, Gamestop Said Soo

        • Edward Wokhands

          I honestly wouldn’t be surprised. If anyone could release it that quick it’s Kojima. (And Nintendo of course.) If it’s out in April I’ll be ecstatic!

          • March or April is unlikely. June is a possibility though.

          • yeah june 22nd

          • Kol Leqejza

            *grumbling*

      • Dizz

        Might be a bit too optimistic, usually give it at least 1-2 extra months for the marketing side of it, to print up the discs and ship them all over the world.

        I could see April being the soonest realistic date. But one can still dream.. http://metalgear.wikia.com/wiki/Shadow_Moses_dream

      • Edward Wokhands

        KOJIMA! If you or anyone close to you is reading this: I will buy 3 copies of this game for PS4 and 3 for PC if you release it this month. I’m going CRAZY at this news.

    • Shalashaska

      FANNNNNSSSSS! ITS NOT OVERRR YETTT!

  • MrVux007
  • NakedSnake85

    Come on guys lets break the record of comments made in one thread!

    • Big_Boss88

      Lol sure :D, we made that big record in Christmas holiday when Nyx was away. Was it around 450 comments or something haha xD.

      • Shalashaska

        If this was the release date thread.. Im betting everyone would have a “time to fap” Meme.. I know thats what im doing the second the thread is posted xD

    • Edward Wokhands

      YES. I need to go for a run with weights strapped to my face to get this excitement out.

  • stagueda

    Here’s to hoping, but i think there will be a trailer and…. most likely a release date, gaming companies also think economically so time is of the essence 😛

  • ThreeMadFrogs

    The announcement is for the different colour eye patches you can equip for DD.

    • Edward Wokhands

      Oh my god. I’m expecting it to be that now. -_-

  • NakedSnake85

    No im not excited AT all.. WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH OHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    • Edward Wokhands

      You know the cartoon Taz Mania? I’m spinning around the house like Taz.

  • César H. Sandoval

    Hnnnnnnnnnnnng

  • flying_fox

    Just when I thought there was no hope left… Typical Kojima. 🙂

    Well let’s hope it’s something substantial.

  • Shadow Rex

    If this is the release date announcement, we need to have a party in here during the stream haha.

  • prothy

    I think this is it.

  • flying_fox

    “Function unavailable”… :'(

  • Alberto Sánchez

    HOLY SHIT

  • Alberto Sánchez

    These KojiPro guys love trolling their own fans with those traps like the fake Phantom Cigar.

    By the way, I like these things a lot. LOL

  • vic boss

    I’m super hyped right now. A week ago I was playing MGS1 again (the liquid fight is hard as fuc*) less than a week ago I was playing mgs4 again. Right now I’m playing mgs3. I cannot be more hyped for this game to come out.
    : http://youtu.be/xD24tTUnLkg

    • Edward Wokhands

      I played through 1, 2 and 3 and just started Peace Walker. Then I’ll move onto 4. Hopefully the release will be soon enough for me to start GZ again the day before release.

      • Big_Boss88

        Enjoy <3!

        • Edward Wokhands

          Thanks, I’ve never played PW properly so this is basically my first proper playthrough. I’m worried about it being too different to enjoy but the story seems cool up until now.

          • vic boss

            Bro, I was just like you the first time I played PW, at the start is a little bit weird getting used to the gameplay, but once you do is one hell of a game, believe me I bought the hd collection back in 2012, and I didn’t like PW gameplay. it wasn’t till the legacy collection came out that I played PW properly.

          • Kol Leqejza

            the story is the weakest part of the game. gameplay is solid. and in co-ops it’s just great.

    • Kol Leqejza

      why this odd order?

      • vic boss

        Well I wanted to play Solid’s games but not too long ago I played mgs2 so I didn’t want to play that again and mgs3 because I have a lot of data saves and I wanted to clear one so I can play it from the very beginning, then play peace walker and GZ just before TPP comes out.

  • RoderickThe13

    I don’t really care if it isn’t the release date as long as it isn’t something like the chicken hat.

  • glitchbomb

    COULD IT BE!?!

    This url is hidden besides timer block inside of HTML, you can check it by yourselves. Its 404 by now but name is all we need to know.

  • Kojima got me looking at my watch like… by the way holy shit this could be it!

    • ThreeMadFrogs

      Ha! I almost bought this watch yesterday. Except the band was like black rubber. Yours looks better.
      I know it’s a Casio, but the legit Seiko ones are soooo expensive.

    • glitchbomb

      For some reason I imagine that sweet knock off version says whoaaaaa hoooooo when you smoke as well but the voice sounds like fat Albert.

    • Bramdeman

      Woooohaaaaa!!!

  • Vinicius Silva

    From the countdown website, CSS:

    .releasedate{width:75%; margin:0 auto 5% auto;}
    .releasedate img { width: 100%; height:auto;}
    .releasebtnbox{width:80%; margin:5% auto 0 auto; background:url(../_img/countdown/cd_preorder_sp.png) no-repeat top left; background-size:cover; border: 2px solid #850303;}
    .releasebtnbox .btn{padding:11.7% 2% 4% 2%;}

    i find the steam comunity post…

    • Edward Wokhands

      Oh s**t! Sp cd_preorder_sp.png is a Steam image? Oh man, so we’ll be able to pre-order which means a release date! Please, please don’t let the wait be more than 3 months. I hope it’s April but am not expecting it.

    • Big_Boss88

      Thanks for the info!

      • LiquidCampbell

        You’re Welcome! 😀
        Look, There was an update for GZ and TPP in SteamDB exactly six days .

        • Shalashaska

          same for the xbox although im not too sure about it .. will get back to you with a picture if i can

        • Cartmangus

          Holy shit, this bodes well for the PC release. I’ve been crossing my fingers so fucking hard for a simultaneous PC release since I don’t have a PS4. PLEASE let this happen, I would be so happy with that news.

          • Edward Wokhands

            Be wary though. If you look at the CSS code there’s “.releasedate” and “.releasedate .pc” which, to me, implies a separate date. I hope I’m wrong and that it doesn’t mean anything, maybe they’ll just have the same date for both but if that was the case then surely they’d just put “For PC and consoles on blah the blahth 2015” and use the .releasedate for all references to date. I actually built a gaming PC especially for this game -_- but if it comes out for PC later than PS4 then it looks like I’ll be owning more than one copy.

          • Derrik Touve

            I believe you are wrong. The “.pc” and “.sp” classes seem to represent the platform they are being viewed on, so I think in this case, PC means Desktop, SP means Mobile (smart phone?).

            Just take a look at the “.bg” class on the main page, which has the background with Big Boss’ head on there. If you inspect it, you will see that the “.bg” element is displayed, the “.sp” element is not.

            Take a look at the background filenames and the images themselves, you will see where I’m coming from.

            http://www.konami.jp/mgs5/_img/tpp_bg.jpg

            http://www.konami.jp/mgs5/_img/tpp_bg_sp.jpg

            But does this rule out that PC and Console versions will come out at the same time? No. However, I do see that the filename for the preorder image (which will replace the “2015 OUT” image) starts with “cd_”. Take that as you will.

          • Edward Wokhands

            Ah yeah, you’re right. I really do hope that it releases on the same day. I’d prefer the PC version. GZ is still the best looking game I’ve ever played.

        • Yofiel Malachi Yacov

          The steam update is nothing serious. Its more steam than konami. The kojipro crew said they were done patching the game back in January has to put resources towards back to work on mgo

    • Added a picture to the post. 🙂

    • Shalashaska

      You are effing awesome.

  • Punished Fox

    Kojima should watch the fuck out, if this isn’t release date he would be actively betraying mankind, too much psychological torture, anguish and suffering because of this man, this is the last straw, if this announcement isn’t fucking release date he’ll need to enter some kind of FBI protection program to save his ass from the rage of fans. WATCH OUT!

    • Big_Boss88

      Lets hope Ken delivers good news, as it seems Kojima won’t be there.

      • Kol Leqejza

        kojima will attend via video-message.

        • Big_Boss88

          Yes 😀 !

        • Kol Leqejza

          pre-recorded, though.

  • NakedSnake85

    Standing…!

  • Big_Boss88

    Time for Nuclear Hype! I can’t wait to see the last trailer for TPP, be it in GDC or E3 :D.

    • Solid O. #V

      I’m Nucleaaaaaar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Bramdeman

    Can you guys give me your adress? Going to buy beer for everyone.

    I’m so happy.

  • Edward Wokhands

    Oh my F****NG GOD. I can’t explain the genuine excitement I’m feeling right now. They’ve never done a countdown for anything else have they? It’s usually just “we’ll have a little more info for you.”

    Adding a countdown to this implies a release date announcement. Holy craaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaap. I’m so happy to see this. I was genuinely thinking that we’d hear nothing at GDC. I’m going to hope that Kojima does what nobody has done with a AAA game and announces it for like 3 weeks from now. More likely it’ll be 2-3 months. Any longer than that and I’ll honestly lose my hype a bit again but at least we’ll know how long the wait is.

    What are all your predictions on this?

    • It has to be the release date. This could mean June is a possibility after all.

      • Edward Wokhands

        June is near my birthday so I’d be happy with that. The wait would be hard though.

    • Big_Boss88

      I have faith in Kojima to release it quite soon from announcement. But I will be happy just to know the exact date for 2015.

      • Edward Wokhands

        I saw someone say that almost all MGS games have released less than three months after the date was announced.

        • Big_Boss88

          Hmm not sure about that, but Ground Zeroes was announced in December and released in March.

          Anyway, miracles do happen ;)… And GZ release time don’t necessary mean TPP follows the same route.

          • Edward Wokhands

            Yeah. I’d love to find out that Kojima was lying about a lot of those “having trouble with bugs” tweets and that the game has been done and is ready for release.

      • Big_Boss88

        Hmmm you’re right ;)…

        Birthday Brother! I was hoping to take that whole week off to play TPP. It would be a heck of a B-day gift, but I don’t see it happening.

  • Edward Wokhands

    For anyone who’s seen Leon: The Professional, you know the scene near the end with the grenade? The way Leon roars? I just did that when I saw the countdown.

    • flying_fox

      I will save that roar for the actual release date. 😉

      • Edward Wokhands

        I’ll be doing a Gary Oldman “EVERYONE” impression when we get the date.

  • Son of Big Boss

    Kojima knows his fans are DYING for a relase date, so I think we can with 99% be sure of that this WILL BE a release date announcement, because I mean honestly, otherwise, Kojima makes himself a little bit of a douche AND that he also knows. PEOPLE, this IS the release date announcement. HOWEVER, that doesn’t mean it is anywhere near where we think it will be. NONE THE LESS, PREPARE. WE. ARE. DIAMOND DOGS.

            I was gonna do that too! Maybe they added that function so the users can access the info a little earlier. It’s a strange thing to add to it, why is it there? It skips 20 minutes by the way in case you didn’t already know.

      • Yeah, if the site is down you will know what happened. 😛

    • Big_Boss88

      Now all that Super Saiyan stuff makes sense to me from DBZ, Goku was so hyped for TPP so that’s why it happened :D.

      • Shalashaska

        yea and Frieza was Kojima. Frieza came .. said “Goku, youre getting a release date”

    • Mini gear

      ill run to japen and punch kojima if this isnt a release date or demo 🙂

        You and me, both. Although, I’ll take the Happy approach and hug him till he breaks and gives us the game 😀

    • Edward Wokhands

      Might sound strange but I’d prefer a release date to a demo.

    I bet they gonna announce the crocodile hat

    This is like the story of the boy lying about a wolf. And when the wolf its actually coming we cant believe it.

      Exactly what i think :/

  • ObsessedGeorge

    Oh my God! It’s happening! Good trick with the Phantom Cigar!

  • Raymondius

    It’s amazing how some people think it could just come out this month. I hope they don’t blame KojiPro again if this does not happen, because it cannot happen.

    Anyway, Wednesday will be a glorious day for us Metal Gear Fans! :DDDD

    • Shalashaska

      It Wont. I dont even know WHY people are thinking that .. its just gonna break their hearts :/

      • Raymondius

        … again. :/

        I do know very well some of them and they are just convinced that the game comes out within next two weeks. I just don’t mean anything with this, but they are also the only ones I know convinced that Venom is Gray Fox. I think I’ve realized that there are two really separate ways of thinking between us fans. The realistic way and the dreamer way, that use the “Kojima is always trolling” to always have their expectations up with what they desire. And that must be really really frustrating.

        The hype is real this time, guys! 😀

        • Shalashaska

          Im sure there is a release date.. there is a high possibilty to it but i HIGHLY doubt that its gonna be out anytime soon :/

        • vic boss

          hahaha of course it won’t come out this month it would be too good to be true. But do you really believe that we are playing as the real Big Boss? I don’t know if he is gray fox but i’m 90% sure that is not the real Big Boss.

          • Raymondius

            What I’m sure is we are playing Venom. I am sure that Venom was previously known as Big Boss because Kojima has stated that so many times. The game is meant to be like that, no matter what “No-Big-Boss lovers” desire. I’m saying I am sure of it because I am 99% convinced we are playing Big Boss. Still, in that 1% left, Gray Fox is not even the fifth character I would be thinking of.

          • Big_Boss88

            I agree with you. I’m 99,9% certain we play as Big Boss because Kojima has been telling us these years that. It’s about his downfall etc, him becoming a threat to the entire world.

            I leave that 0,1% for Kojima’s skillful surprises, like in the case of MGS2.

          • Shalashaska

            I will throw this disc if its anyone but Big Boss. After 2 years and 3 Big boss Games.. thats what i want :/

    • Big_Boss88

  • Invader_skoodge

    IF this countdown was announced a few weeks ago I would have been very exited. The last bit of hype died for me a while ago. You guys remember when there was going to be a “big” announcement during the Christmas Episode of Kojima Station? Yeah…good times huh? Even if it’s the Release Date, this hype train has derailed and the hype chopper is out of commission.

    • Schmojima

      Ah, c’mon, it’s still a frickin countdown!
      This just HAS to be good, because they are trying to re-build serious hype…

      • Invader_skoodge

        I think I can only Hype if the game is V/V/201V Cinco De Mayo FIESTA!!!

    • Big_Boss88

      If it don’t happen on Wednesday, then it is 100% guaranteed to be announced in E3. So lets see what happen :D. My hype is never ending!

      • Invader_skoodge

        I was once like you. Full of excite! Riding that Hype train but every time Kojima has only given us:

  • Schmojima

    Woah, this must be it!
    A countdown means serious business!!!

  • Boris Leal

    finallyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

  • Schmojima

    I feel it!!

          • Tibor

            😀 yeah, and I thought I will have to pay for mobile internet to check the news tomorow but Wednesday is fine 😀

          • Bramdeman

            I’m glad! I will make sure to ask for a break at work since it will be daytime for me. I was never so hyped before. It’s kinda silly. 😀

          • Tibor

            😀 yeah we all have benn waiting so long for this. it will be daytime here as well but fortunately I don’t have school this week 😀

        • Shalashaska

  • Guest

    June 23?

  • Javier Sosa

    June 23??

    • Big_Boss88

      I’d love to have that as the boxart for TPP, so cool =). Or then the one with both Big Boss and Ocelot :).

      Dunno about the date :P, my local stores only put 2015 lol. Anyway we see soon what it is <3…but the time need to go faster.

      • Javier Sosa

        Sorry for put the comment 2 times. With the cellphone was a failure. Could someone delete it?

        • Big_Boss88

          Sure no problem :), it sometime happen to me too when posting with cellphone.

          Btw Javier have you pre-ordered TPP already? I’m wondering am I the only one here who haven’t XD… I’m gonna pre-order this masterpiece instantly when get date announcement and waiting for those delicious limited/special editions :D.

          • Mini gear

            i preorderd diractly as it was possible

          • solidsnack

            i’m also waiting for a special edition but maybe i’ll cave and get both versions. my wallet it won’t stop hurting.

          • Bramdeman

            I consider pre ordering the ultimate chickenhound edition with the game, a real life chicken cap and a barn filled with chickens.

          • Javier Sosa

            I’ll wait until one or two months before the release to preorder it. The picture it’s a web from Spain.

          • Big_Boss88

            Yea that is how I usually do it too, close to release :). Okey, I guess people in Finland are lazy updating the store info in here lol, so they just use 2015.

          • Shalashaska

            I havent .. And probably wont be doing it either 😛 Hey I love the game and all but Im Strictly against pre-ordering games ..even IF its kojima 😛

          • mikeyyytexas

            I’m usually the same way… But I preordered for the first time with GZ and got it before a lot of people cause I went durning my lunch break but I just went ahead and pre-ordered today… In the case that this is a release date I’ll have my copy already reserved and waiting for me.

  • Mini gear

    AGAHGHGSGSGHJHGAGHAHHGJAGJAGHAJGGHAGAHgHAJgjhAJ!!!!! im hyped over 9000!

  • Mini gear

    it is impossible but what would you do if the game came out then?

  • RevolverRoden

    BROTHERS! IT’S BEEN TOO LONG
    THE WAR IS OVER
    LET THE LEGEND (HYPE) COME BACK TO LIFE
    I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS

    V/V/201V

    • Mini gear

      id die of happiness

  • Cartmangus

    There’s no way this isn’t the release date. If they pull another Chicken Hat then.. actually, I won’t even be mad, that’s just impressive at this point, Kojima really taking the whole thing impossibly far.

    But yeah HYPE. Hope we get to see some new footage too, but a release date is definitely good enough.

  • Big_Boss88

    I just realized it’s been almost 2 years since my favorite trailer… I wonder how many times I’ve watched it :D.

    Can’t wait to see new trailer + big reveal happening again. I pray to God that it really happens.

    • RevolverRoden

      Man, the feels I get watching that trailer. It’s been two years? Wow. I remember this reveal like it was yesterday.
      “He’s in a coma…” and “How’s he doing?”
      GOD DAMN those lines send SHIVERS down my spine.

      • Big_Boss88

        Yea about 2 years :D, GDC in 2013 was around 27th March I think.

    • vic boss

      I know bro , almost two years, I’ve seen it countless times too . Makes one wonder if Kojima has changed anything from that trailer.

      • Big_Boss88

        I hope he hasn’t :(… I’m really looking forward to that chopper scene. It’s just pure gold, that look on Snake’s face :O…beautiful. Also the Hospital part gonna kick ass.

    • Venom_Sina

      I’m afraid it’s been….Two & a half years(with the voice of that doctor!!!)

      • kirtanloorii

        Kojima’s big announcement: “I’m afraid it’s going to be… A chicken hat.”

        • Big_Boss88

          Oh god no …

    • Cartmangus

      God damn, been a while since I rewatched that it, probably my favorite one too. So good. I can’t wait for that hospital sequence.

  • Saladin

    I’m fine with June as a release date, just make it as good as possible.

  • RevolverRoden

    MAN I’m pretty scared tbh. What if
    1) The announcement is a chicken hat type announcement (unlikely though considering IGN is reporting it)
    MORE LIKELY is if the release date is like November 2015. That would suck
    HYPEEEEE

    • vic boss

      it has to be the release date and as long as is this year I won’t be mad because the game will be great whenever it comes out.

  • Venom_Sina

    Praise the Lord,Praise the Lord,That’s a miracle!!!!(and some Hallelujah on the background!!!)
    A mysterious trailer+release date would be nice.By the way,They’ve done a great job with the website,especially that “Phantom Cigar” thing!!!

    • RevolverRoden

      Yeah that Phantom Cigar made me legit laugh.

  • CodeBox

    I Just wanted to take this time to say that Metal Gear Informer is one of, if not thee best fan site I have every seen.
    This community is top notch and I just wanted to say Thank You to Nyxus and all the amazing fans on here.
    I’ve only been a fan of Metal Gear for only a little over a year now (I can’t believe it took me so long to experience this masterpiece franchise) and have the upmost respect for all of you fans who have been with the franchise since the beginning and all the fans who have painfully been awaiting the releases of MGSV: The Phantom Pain all these years.

    • Big_Boss88

      Nice post and thank you :). It’s good to have more fellow MGS fans around the world in here ^_^!
      Aye it’s the best community, very peaceful and respectful towards each other most of the time. I hope you enjoy staying for long in MGI :D.

      Every gamer should play MGS or they are missing the greatest franchise ever!

      • CodeBox

        Thanks for the welcome! I couldn’t agree with you more! 😀

    • Venom_Sina

      Welcome aboard,man.I love this community too,cause people here are AMAZING.And all of us have a thing in common:”Metal Gear”.And the good thing is we can talk about this game non-stop!!!

      • CodeBox

        Thanks! I really appreciate the welcome 🙂

    • Thanks a lot! It’s great to see how much the community has grown. Hopefully everyone will stick around even after the game has released.

      • Shalashaska

        I SHALL! 😀 Although.. when the game releases .. pardon me if im not on for a few days till i finishthe game in peace.. i dont want to touch theinternet till im done .. spoilers will ruin the game :'(

        • Edward Wokhands

          Yeah, I’ve made the same rule. ZERO internet until I’ve learned the full story and got a good amount of side missions finished. This is probably the only game where I won’t even look at reviews before I play it. I don’t need some ignorant, snarky, hipster reviewer pointing out the “flaws” in Kojima’s style, by the way those “flaws” always turn out to be genius in hipster’s eyes. It just takes them around 10 years to realize it.

        • Edward Wokhands

          Something else I’ve wondered, that I’d like to do before release, what do you all think will be the tech that everyone makes fun of but then turns out to really exist or almost did officially exist in the military? Critics ALWAYS mock Metal Gear after release, claiming that the game was ruined by the “magical” technology that Kojima “shoe horned” into the game. They’re wrong. They’re idiots, I’ll summarize why.

          MGS2: some critics said that drones with cameras were impossible for the time the game was set in. (¬_¬ really? How stupid are game critics? It’s a radio camera with a fan stuck to it while at the same time they overlooked Vamp.)

          MGS3: they said those hover platforms were impossible. Turns out that tech existed since before the 50s and they were really stable.

          Peace Walker: they said that fultoning was absurd and ruined the game. Some people said the same about 5. These people probably haven’t seen the military’s fulton test video where they literally fulton a sheep into the sky and return it to ground unharmed, (it’s on YouTube and it’s HILARIOUS and kind of upsetting) which is why Kojima did it in his gameplay demo I’m guessing.

          MGS4: People said his suit and the mech robots were absurd when the military now has a suit almost finished and also have a robot that can run as fast as a cheetah and there are other robots being used in field!

          The MGS team obviously do their research on the military so it’s silly to make fun of them the way the media ALWAYS does not long after a new game releases. I’m thinking of writing a full article on this subject in way more depth, if people think that it’d be something they’d like to read then let me know. I need to practice my writing and this is a subject I love.

          More on MGS4: “Enhancing mood” with chemicals to make soldiers happy and content on the battlefield was actually discussed in public around 2005 by mainstream scientists, they talked about how it’s probably immoral and unethical but the military is already testing it with drugs and conditioning. So if they had nano-machines, yeah, we’ll be able to do almost everything, they will seem like magic and all I can say is that I hope that Kojima’s nano-machine head will be floating in the sky above us all laughing and shouting “NANOMACHINES SON??? NANOMACHINES SUN!!! BWAHAHAHA!!!” and he’ll start shooting laser suns out of his eyes. So let’s stop mocking MGS. You look stupid when you do it you hip dicks.

          So what tech do you guys think will be in the game that people misunderstand just to make themselves look smart? I would have said fultoning again but that has already passed after the sheep fulton video where every other commenter claimed that it ruined the game because the military would never shoot sheep into the sky. Again, watch this… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UsTIeZ03Hk8 it’s a kind of Fulton. Yes the tech is a little different but it proves the point that those who said it ruined the game are being idiots. Skip to 18 seconds. Brighten up your day. You’re welcome.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Who cares . That’s what I say. It’s not media or critics. It’s the same ole kids who complain about everything. It’s a video game and it’s not sposes to be realistic. Life is the same ole same ole all the time, I don’t need to have realism in games. Never liked games that copy real life. MGS might have some things based on real ideas but MGS in its truest form is fiction .

          • Edward Wokhands

            Exactly, that’s why it’s so great, it mixes fiction and the real world perfectly. Unfortunately those kids who complain about everything are part of the media now. I’ll try to find the review of MGS2 where they say that drones are unrealistic, it was on a professional site.

          • Big_Boss88

            ” It’s a video game and it’s not sposes to be realistic. Life is the same
            ole same ole all the time, I don’t need to have realism in games.”

            This is exactly what I feel or think. I’ve told many in youtube these same words and our lives are realistic enough :).

          • Bramdeman

            Kojima stated that technology in the MGS universe is more advanced than ours.

        • Mini gear

          I’m not gonna be on for amlittle bit when this is out ^_^

    • kirtanloorii

      I’ve been lurking a long time and finally decided to start an account a couple days ago. Anyways, I love it here and consider this website to be my primary source of MGS information.

      • glitchbomb

        Welcome good sir!

    • Invader_skoodge

      Yeah..It’s never too late to discover great games. I think the MGS franchise is so timeless that it never runs out of new fans of the games. This community is great too.

    • Silverius

      Me too, I love it here guys, I first discovered it lurking for phantom pain news a while back, since then ive been checking up daily.

    • Imre saladin

      I Love u all greetings from serbia
      The best Community ever

    • Edward Wokhands

      Same here, I love this site. You’re right about this series being a masterpiece. I wrote on Reddit the other day that this is the only game series that has scarred me emotionally in a way that only movies, music and novels have done. No other game comes close to what I felt playing MGS3 and 4. If TPP reaches that same level or above I’ll cry as hard as I can. I’ll be shooting compressed water from my eyeballs like superman’s heat vision.

  • Venom_Sina

    Wow!!! It’s really crowded here tonight.It’s raining comments!!!Whenever I look up & down of the browser,it says:”One new comment above/below”!!!

      The only thing other than the release date that would get people’s attention is “kojima runs naked in the streets of japan pretending to be Snake”

  • kirtanloorii

    I wonder if they are going to update GZ to include the release date after you beat the main campaign.

  • The last image, the one with the release date in the source code is for Ground Zeroes, not for TPP. Must be a typo 😛

    Have a nice day 🙂

    • You mean the GZ banner? Actually above that on the same page is the countdown with TPP logo, but it was cut off for this image.

      Edit: Changed the image to avoid further confusion.

    • Invader_skoodge

      You sure? I see the releasedate lines inside the counter.css file and that has TPP written all over it.

    • Big_Boss88

      Daaaaamn, I salute you for writing all those numbers Mini O_O… That’s quite an accomplishment ;D!

      • Mini gear

        Arigato boss ^_^ it helps pass the time

  • warnerve

    if its the release date, then I shall storm my savings account and get me a PS4 and pre-order TPP.

  • kirtanloorii

    Can you imagine how surreal it’s going to be when you find yourself playing this game, especially during the scenes featured in the trailers?

  • MAG V Supreme

    This what I been asking and reminding everyone about. The redeem code that said come back early 2015. I hope we get a Beta code for mgo. Something now. Also the Co-Op feature needs to be announced. I am 99% sure release date will be Wednesday for the countdown. I just want Beta and Co-op announced. Thoughts?

    • kirtanloorii

      I’m not even completely sure that MGO will be available on day one, but I do think that beta access would be good for everyone.

      • MAG V Supreme

        This is why you must overload mgo twitter with the demand for beta. Make sure they on point. Lmao selfish me

  • MichaelPayneV

    I’ll say it again, June 8th.

    • MAG V Supreme

      Ill take june but the 9th is a tuesday when games usually release. So my price is right by 24 hours… june 9th bob

      • MichaelPayneV

        Well we all know that Hideo does thing his way, so i’ll stay with June 8th until i’m officially proven wrong, then i will apologize.

        • MAG V Supreme

          No apologies need my friend. In fact My date makes sense for the theme of the game. May 5th 2015. aka 5-5-2015 aka V-V-201V Lets see who guess correct… I prefer us both to be wrong it comes out tomorrow but as you said

          Kojima is Big Boss

          • MichaelPayneV

            I’m not apologizing because i need to, no, but because i promised that i will apologize if i’m proven wrong, all i’m doing is keeping my word, and i care A LOT about my word.

          • MAG V Supreme

            Apology not approved. Its noble but we just shared our predictions. Sorry is when you do wrong. No harm. Wish you was right.

    • RevolverRoden
      • kirtanloorii

        I could believe that. It is the only site I have seen so far to use that cover, which is a nice cover by the way.

        • RevolverRoden

          Of course, you should take retail listings with a grain of salt, but this seems plausible. Also, yeah, I think that’ll be the cover art. Hopefully theres reversible shinkawa art like with GZ. I like that picture, but I think there could be better tbh. Still cool though.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Actually it is September 1, so we were both wrong, but you were closer, which makes you the winner.

        • RevolverRoden

          I STILL REFUSE TO BELIEVE
          RIP V/V/201V

  • No Place For Hayter

    Wow, it is funny to check this every few hours and see the comments increase by hundreds lol, last I checked it was at about 180, now we are at about 290, lol.

    • Shalashaska Has Landed

      Lmao. This is my first time posting inside this article. Too many people were in here and crowded the entrance for me to get in.

    • kirtanloorii

      Let’s see about getting it up to 300.

    • Big_Boss88

      Don’t worry :D, the comments will never stop haha.

  • Rob Machado

    Oh yeah..fuck yeah!

  • FMercenary

    Hey! What’s going on in here?!

  • thetrooper1989

    Kojima should pull a “Beyonce” on Wednesday and say “MGS V: The Phantom Pain will be released….today”.

    ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    • Invader_skoodge

      He could pull an Usher and release the game in a box of Cap’n Crunch.

      • thetrooper1989

        lmfaooo!

  • RevolverRoden
    • thetrooper1989

      What dis is?

    • MAG V Supreme

      I can post up at least 20 retail stores with all different dates… From gamestop to best buy and so on. your link is to a place I never heard of… you must work for them. Good way to advertise.

      • RevolverRoden

        “you must work for them”
        heh ok.

  • RevolverRoden

    Also.
    (Credit to the guys at Neogaf for finding this stuff out.)

  • John Rhogan

    The problem with everybody about Phantom Pain is this: It’s not the suspense that gets to you, it’s the waiting.

    I’m getting antsy and impatient about when this game will be released, but I’m not always asking about when this game will be released. I’m hoping there will a release date announcement at GDC ’15, so hold yer horses everybody.

  • Icosikaidigon

    Wednesday? Shouldn’t it be tomorrow? It says there’s only nine hours left for me.

    • Javier Sosa

      And one day

    Has someone click on the phamtom cigar? xD

  • 2 Venomous 4 Kaz

    Hype: MAX! This is the game my PS4 deserves AND needs right now.

    BRING IT ON

    • MrVux007

      along with Order1886,Bloodborne,Uncharted 4 and many other games to come ^^ (IMO)

      • 2 Venomous 4 Kaz

        Got The Order 1886- cracking game, don’t know why all the negativity actually.
        Bloodborne may have to wait as got a backlog to plough through before MGSV & Arkham Knight!

        • MrVux007

          The order 1886…must be the most underrated game of the year….if not the decade

        • No Place For Hayter

          The hate stems from the short length and the simplicity of the game design, basically the opposite of what TPP will be, lol.

          • 2 Venomous 4 Kaz

            Yet i enjoyed it for those things!

            Anyway, Sep 1st here i come! Can’t wait to visit/invade people’s bases from this community!

  • Cristian Landeros

    mmm… do you remember this?

    “It is clear that Metal Gear fans around the world are eagerly awaiting Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and wondering when we can expect the game to be released. During episode 32 of Kojima Station, this subject came up briefly. Just a couple of days ago Ken Imaizumi told fans the studio is not ready to announce the release date yet, but during the show they stated an announcement regarding the RELEASE WINDOW is not far off anymore. KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS UPCOMING ANNOUNCEMENT IS FOR THE RELEASE WINDOW, not the release date.”

    http://www.metalgearinformer.com/?p=17600

    • thetrooper1989

      damn 🙁

    • Nathan Middleton

      I can not fault you for restraining any optimism; however, the source code DOES specifically say release date… not window.

      • Cristian Landeros

        i’ve been disappointed too many times… that’s all

        • Nathan Middleton

          Exactly why I can’t fault you, haha.

  • ThisIsSnake!

    Most of you Guys are gonna roast me for saying this, but I wasn’t feeling Ground Zeroes. I wasn’t even bothered about the length, it just didn’t feel like a Metal Gear game, and the controls felt wonky. The direction of the game to appeal to wider audiences has me worried. Now I don’t know whether to chance it? because I wouldn’t only be getting MGSV, it would also be a PS4. What do you guys think?

    • Nathan Middleton

      It’s really not all that bad. It’s the ultimate form of expression.

    • MAG V Supreme

      ps4 is best console out and worth it if you play any game. As far as MGSV I been on it since metal gear in 80s. then mgs came and changed everything. than mgs3 came and did the same. every few games Kojima evolves it all. So if you really feel its change thats a good thing. Times changes. If not we’d be stuck on 2d nintendo graphics and MGS would never change. If you think of it, Snake was super slow in past recent games. Being the greatest solider and that slow never made sense. But i can say that about alot of upgrades in mgsv. lets not dive too deep. Think of it like this. You going from a ps3 to a ps4 if nothing changed why upgrade? we all have opinions and yours isnt wrong, no matter what anyone says on here. But if you a fan of the series and just love gaming. MGSV and ps4 is 100% worth the buy. Unless you not paying the light bill than its pointless. LMAO Priorities come first and mgsv is going to be one of the best games. So yes most of us who enjoy games and mgsv will tell you go for it…. enjoy

      • ThisIsSnake!

        I’m a Metal Gear Baby, it formed a great part of my childhood. I am, admittedly, if it isn’t broke don’t fix it kind of person. When changes have been made in MGS in the past they were good calls, because they were evolving, and not subtracting. I think MGSV will be limited on last gen, which is my reasoning for wanting it on PS4. Kojima San has always blown my mind with most of his games, so maybe feeling this way is good, because hype have killed games for me before. I will say this though, some of the concepts in terms of gameplay has serious potential in MGSV, it’s nothing like I’ve ever seen before.

        • MAG V Supreme

          Agree with everything except ps3. Graphics and fps are only issue for last gen. Games like mario always good right? not my cup of tea but they are great games and graphics always cartoon. So fps will be the test for last gen consoles but thats why you spend the money for a next gen console… Agreed about Kojima, He always delivers. MGSV TPP should be no exception.

    • vic boss

      Well maybe is because you didn’t play Peace walker and didn’t really feel the loss of your MB and comrades. the ending of GZ was superb and something that I think had not been done in a MGS game, I didn’t feel the way that ending made me feel since Liquid Ocelot burned “big boss’s” body in Europe in mgs4 . For me PW controls felt too weird at the beginning but once I got used to them, it turned out to be an awesome game. The PS4 is a great console and with TPP, the amount of things one will be able to do, the story, the multiplayer and also the graphics. I’d say go for it

      • ThisIsSnake!

        It’s got a Call of Duty vibe to it, this is one of reasons why I’m worried! Controls is something MGS has always nailed, they don’t feel properly calibrated in GZ, but I think it will be addressed in TPP. I liked the controls in PW, especially the CQC, it felt fluid.

        • vic boss

          Well everyone has their opinion and that’s fine. But for the gameplay I think is because GZ didn’t have a tutorial of the controls, for me is like they simplified and enhanced the controls and CQC. I mean now is just too easy and no so complicated to CQC someone. I know PW had also good CQC controls but it was originally a game for the psp.

        • Cmosfbincludestdioh

          Call of Duty vibe?
          Why has every game coming out these days and trys new things immediately have to be like call of duty.

          • Ravenous

            What’s been new about any Call of Duty since before Modern Warfare 2? XD apart from weapons, killstreak rewards and maps that is…
            Aaaaaanyways, I hope that TPP will have some DLC, BUT NOT the kind where the DLC is launched at the same time as the game and appears to be nothing but a cash-grab: I want actual new content to added to the game, not simple reskins or a new map for MGO per DLC

            Edit: and I seem to have completely missed the whole point of these answers Oo now where did I see something about DLC being discussed?

        • RevolverRoden

          Controls is something MGS has NEVER nailed before GZ. They were never bad, but MGS controls always had something weird going on.

      • Invader_skoodge

        Right on. I feel the same way. I put way too much time and effort building my Mother Base in Peace Walker just to see it destroyed.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Agreed, I love every other MGS game and played them to death, peace walker being my second favorite, but ground zeroes was off, WAY off, that being said it was off….. ok GZ was bad because it in itself was a bad idea and was butchered, and they are problems with TPP and there will be more we don’t know of but most of the problems with GZ will be fixed. While TPP just like GZ will be more directed at a wider audience thus dumbing down certain aspects for no good reasons it will still have a huge array of amazing features and just like every other MGS game (including my least favorite MGS4) will be ground breaking, so we already know MGSV TPP will not be perfect but it will still be mind blowing amazing, and while some fundamentals have changed and some things will not feel like MG I’m sure a lot of it will and even not the game itself will still be good, so in conclusion, yes you should buy it, hopefully they will announce a bundle tomorrow with the PS4. And while I find it hard to recomend a any console to anyone because I’m goona be honest here both Microsoft and Sony are retarded and I would rather not deal with either but a PS4 is a good choice because you won’t be getting the piece of crap hardware that is the Xbox One but even though the PS4 is the best hardware wise you will have to put up with Sony’s lack of software/software knowledge and their ability to never support anything, but the PS4 is the better console and Sony is the lesser of two evils so it will be worth it to get a PS4 if any. (Anyone is allowed to like anything my thoughts on the consoles are simply my thoughts and opinions, despite any facts I formed those opinions on I am in no way disapproving of or insulting anyone who thinks otherwise). So yes I think you should, it is a chance but one that will pay out positive either way but the kind of positive it is, is the chance you are taking.

      Sorry for the wall of text I could do a TL;DR but I think everyone should read more, I won’t sum up complex thoughts for easy consumption, it is supposed to be hard lol.

      • ThisIsSnake!

        Lol, you’re a legend! I couldn’t agree with you more! Lol at the Sony be the lesser evil! This off topic, but do you think Hayter’s gonna be in the game? There’s no way they can afford Kiefer for a fully spoken game, which is the reason he’s so silent, they’re already spreading across his recordings.

        • No Place For Hayter

          🙂

          It is possible that Hayter is in the game for a cameo with Solid Snake, but it is only a slight possibility, due to the nature of Hayters none return and that if there was a cameo with Solid Snake I doubt they would use Hayter due to the fact that Snake would be so young in MGSV. So while there is a slight possibility I won’t be getting my hopes up, I mean they already had Kiefer running around in GZ saying nostalgic classic lines in the MGS1 mission despite the fact that it was Hayter that said such generic lines and made them special.

  • Invader_skoodge
    • MAG V Supreme

      Is that stuff in the vault of konami core?

      • Invader_skoodge

        That’s different content from different retailers the weapon is from GEO, the Cardboard Box is from Amazon Japan and the Mother Base Staff soldier is from GameTSUTAYA

        • MAG V Supreme

          I just hope MGSV doesnt do what most games are doing and give us 70% of a game than sell items and characters separately. Can I get one whole game like the good old days…

          • Invader_skoodge

            Well, we saw a glimpse of that with the Deja Vu and Jamais Vu missions. But they did the smart thing and made them available for all systems. I don’t mind things like these ones being exclusive. weapons, staff, boxes(I’m sure it’s just going to say amazon.co.jp) but if they do something like Exlusive Missions I won’t look at KojiPro the same way ever again.

          • MAG V Supreme

            I mean a DLC is always good to continue game so it feels fresh.

          • Ravenous

            As long as it’s not just an obvious cash-grab like a map-pack that launches at the same time as the game I can agree, I’d like the kind of DLC that actually ADDS something to the game, not just reskins and MP-maps ala Call of Duty

          • MAG V Supreme

            Agreed

  • Aizo Yurei

    the big announcement: Chico IS Quiet…

  • PrinceHeir

    I already have a feeling it has something to do with that promo pic about keep your saves for future The Phantom Pain content.

    Probably invitation to the MGO beta. Release date in June sounds plausible, but only 3 months of advertising?

    Not sure about that.

    And lol Kojima is Chaos Neutral

    https://scontent-lga.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/t31.0-8/11001580_940485455984204_9096409545126551303_o.jpg

    • Jonny McLaurine

      MGS TPP is the most anticipated game of 2015, I doubt they need that much marketing. I doubt they will release this month but between now and June is a good guess.

      • PrinceHeir

        Well IGN Italy leaked the release date and it’s not June since it’s little time for marketing.

        Thanks for the stupid leaks IGN.

    • Edward Wokhands

      Chaotic Evil is my favorite. 13 wasn’t a mistake? That is genuine evil.

  • Bramdeman

    Gonna have to do some CQC practise now.

    • thetrooper1989

      ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    • No Place For Hayter

      I think he is trying but not succeeding lol.

  • Cipher

    I’m at the website, just pressing The Phantom Cigar over and over again 🙂

  • Shadow Rex

    By the way, thanks Nyxus for the global announcement times in this article and for including us down here in Australia. Much appreciated.

  • Goodbye to Yesterday

    The announcement will be Kojima asking this simple question…

    “Do you remember the day we met?”

  • Altaim

    • Ravenous

      Mine isn’t, I’m probably going to be on the verge of throwing up when that countdown reaches 10 seconds, and I’m not entirely sure how it’ll go after that XD

      • RevolverRoden

        tbh im gonna throw up now

        • Ravenous

          Nice to know that I’m not alone in being more than alittle overzealous about MGS XD

  • Edward Wokhands

    Oh crap! We’re 2 hours away from the 24 hour countdown! This is the most enjoyable countdown I’ve ever experienced! WuuhHOOOOOOAAAAAOOOOOOOOOO!

  • RevolverRoden

    Oh man the hype is too much. I’m getting butterflies in my stomach.
    WHHHOOOOOOOAAAAHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

  • SPEKTRA

    • Big_Boss88

      I think it works for me, btw don’t worry your English is good :D.

        • Mini gear

          “Hype?, what took you so long?”

    • Schmojima

      Yeah! <3
      And that in a mere Day!! I think it took us almost 10 days around christmas to get to 500 comments, right?

      • Big_Boss88

        Yeah…it took much longer back then 😀 maybe 8-10 days. I think many of the comments first was about Christmas chicken hat rage lol, good times :).

  • Adstratorz

    Just signed up to join the HYPE…

    Yeah Konami’s Metal Gear Solid 5 site is not able to properly load anymore! http://www.konami.jp/mgs5/

    hahaha imagine how many HARDCORE METAL GEAR SOLID fans wants to know the update..

    • No Place For Hayter

      Welcome, the more the merrier 🙂 Thankfully we can still HYPE about the new news that is incoming, fingers crossed that it will include special editions and bundles.

      Thankfully I’m of the kind that can sit back and just check MGI every few hours for any news, but I can just imagine everyone that was trying to use the website lol.

  • Ignacio López Miranda

    I CAN’T WAIT!!

  • Ignacio López Miranda

    The following ultra-hyped waiting takes place between 3rd and 4th of March. Events occur in real time.

  • mikeyyytexas

    So what was the big announcement I’m dying to know! I checked back at the mgsv website but the clock reset… Or maybe that’s how they’re trolling us by starting the clock over

    • Xilurm

      It didn’t reset. There was 1 day on the counter. Now that 1 day is gone. It’s just 22 hours remaining.

      • mikeyyytexas

        Oh I didn’t see the one day when I was looking yesterday but let’s see what it is in a couple hours

    • Big_Boss88

      We see tomorrow. I hope it really is what we want…or if not then I can imagine the rage of fans lol. Which is why I’m prepared for anything but really hoping it is RD…gotta be it.

      • mikeyyytexas

        Well there was that leak right? And right now my time there’s 12 hrs left

        I pre-ordered just in case it is the release date

  • Xilurm

    THEY’RE HYPING US LIKE A DAMN FIDDLE!!!

    And I love it!

  • Tsun

    Gamestop is showing a release date of March 31st…

    http://www.gamestop.com/browse?nav=16k-Metal+Gear+Solid+V+The+Phantom+Pain

  • Cesare Di Maio

    http://www.ign.com/videos/2015/3/3/esclusiva-metal-gear-solid-v-the-phantom-pain-doma-ign-it

    it seems this video has been uploaded 1 day before the real announcment, infact, the first italian question is “MGS V Release date has been announced, how you feel?” so guess time has come

    • Cesare Di Maio

      BTW, 1ST SEPTEMBER 201V WORLD WIDE RELEASE DATE (see end of the video)

    • Adstratorz

      and it is stated there that it will be Hideo Kojima’s final Metal Gear Solid…

    • MAG V Supreme

      You the real mvp

      • Cesare Di Maio

        i do hope IGN gave wrong date tho…

    • MAG V Supreme

      And so those reading know. This link is real. I watched it. 7plus video of kojima speaking about mgsv. At end release date. Sept 1. Maybe tomorrow we have more info also.

  • Schmojima

    405! ^_^

  • Cesare Di Maio

    Here, link below

    • Big_Boss88

      O_O OMG!

      • Mini gear

        I just lost so much waiting burden off me

        • Big_Boss88

          So this is the real deal lol? They will announce it tomorrow for bigger audience I guess, but if this is the real one I’M SO HAPPY . September is quite far away. IGN better not f*ck with my feelings or I will go nuclear haha.

          • Cesare Di Maio

            no, its simply that IGN people are a bunch of stupids, i think the God’s message was this Q&A video

          • Big_Boss88

            Alrighty, well June-November was what I expect anyway, so all is good but fantastic to finally know how long gotta wait and can stop asking for release date. SOOOO AWESOME XD.

            Only problem is that I was planning to spend my summer vacation in June or July lol, hmm maybe need to save the days for Sep then :P. Anyway we see tomorrow for sure, but Sep feels like a right time for TPP.

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            I expected June ever since they didn’t announce an official month of release since that’s when MGS4 released. Still need to play Ground Zeroes. This better not be Kojima trolling us with another merchandise offer or something other than release date.

          • Mini gear

            Would of preferred June but Komi,as crazy, at least we know now

    • Schmojima

      shit, they took it down…at least I can’t access the page, shows a 404….

    • Cmosfbincludestdioh

      yeah it is september boys

    • Schmojima

      But oh well, doesn’t matter if it’s down now… SEPT. 1st, THIS IS FUCKING AWESOME!

    • Cesare Di Maio

      Guys, tweet this pic, post on neogaf or reddit if you can (i can’t) so evryone can be happy, and laugh at IGN incompetence

      • Shalashaska Has Landed

        Hell yeah. I saw the video too (thank you very much btw), and I tried to screen cap it but I forgot IGN has their “auto play next video”, and when I clicked back, the video was taken down lol.

        LOLLLL @ IGN

        • Cesare Di Maio

          save mine, no problem to me, (you’re welcome)

          • kirtanloorii

            Can someone give me a link for the video. I can’t seem to find it.

          • Schmojima

            they took it down hard… :/

          • Big_Boss88

            Yea probably noticed their mistake so took it down fast.

          • Schmojima

            Yeah, seems like it.
            Hihi, stupid IGN morons, just blurted out the big news, i’m fucking shaking

  • Adstratorz

    May = Pacquiao VS Mayweather

    if its on June it will be.. the Battle of the B’s

    The Phantom Knight

  • XIFF-5

    Oh come on… I wanted to enjoy it in the summer. :/

    • Schmojima

      Ah, c’mon! This awesome news!
      Appreciate it! ;D

  • MAG V Supreme

    Its pretty much confirmed for sept 1. Now as mgs fans lets not turn in to dogs here. We bark and chase cars all day but if we catch one we wouldnt know what to do with it anyway. All this crying about wanting a release date and we got one. I dont want to hear you cry now. You barked, chased and caught the car. Now you dont know what to do with it. Diamond dogs represent our fight. Mgsv. Tpp sept 1. Be proud soliders.

    • Mini gear

      So what do we do for that long now?

      • MAG V Supreme

        Go to work, school, church, gym, you name it. Spend time with love ones. Read or write a book. Learn something new. Life is short. You have to live. Like mgs1, mgs2, mgs3and mgs4. At the end they always remind the players to live. 7 months go by fast. Find things to enjoy and live snake.

        • Schmojima

          That was actually pretty deep and inspiring! Thank you, man!

          • MAG V Supreme

            Thanks dude i am a inspiring life coach. So i try to be a good motivator when i can or feel like it. Lmao mgs is my favorite series ever. Beyond games in all entertainment. So mgs fans are great to me.

  • Cristian Landeros

    what does “early 2015” means for kojima?? … September

    • Mini gear

      Late means 2051

  • kirtanloorii

    I found the leak everyone was looking for on NeoGaf: http://assets.ign.com/videos/zencode…1425396954.mp4

    • Schmojima

      It says 404, sry

      • Cristian Landeros

        there it is

    • kirtanloorii

      Let me upload to mega. I was fast enough to grab a copy.

      • Schmojima

        Oh, that would be nice! Thanks!!

      • Shalashaska

        quick quick quick

    • kirtanloorii

      I put the video on the latest page of Metal Gear Informer. Go there.

  • Bartolomeo OP Snake Eater

    Is anyone else having a problem where they keep clicking the Phantom Cigar just for the sound effect? Because I have done it around 50 times in the last 24 hours..

    • Mini gear

      The game feels done but it’s ok nnow

    • Shalashaska

      are you fucking kidding me ?

      • No, man. Waiting for another 6 months is too much. : /
        I wanted it for summer. July or so. In about 4 months as much.

        Somehow, i’m happy that they said the release date already and for once so we don’t need to struggle our heads, but, waiting another 6 months is too much.

        Maybe others will be playing Batman and other games in summer meanwhile, but i only will buy this one, so the waiting will be “longer” for me.

        Have a nice day.

  • Solidpnk

      • Solidpnk

        Good afternoon! I hope I’m replying to your comment . I don’t want to post the reply on another article like I did by mistake to big_boss lol yes 6 months will go fast and plus there is awesome games to keep us occupied =). Batman arkham night for example .

        Jeje. Thank you very much . Sadly I won’t play the game until Thursday .Wednesday TV goes to my uncle =(.

        I’m going to pre ordere the collector’s edition . I’m content but I wish there was more like shinkawa Artwork .
        by the way I can’t seem to pre order collector’s at gamestop. It hasn’t been updated .

        Yes I did lol I wanted to be part of history in here xD.
        awh, don’t think like that , but what about dlc in the future or updates for the game ?

        Also, we can come back to give our “gamertag” so we all go to nyxus Mother Base and PARTY all night/day long! No cheating (phantom cigar) lol
