Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain releasing on September 1st

The official release date for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain unintentionally revealed by IGN Italy in their announcement video. The video that was planned for tomorrow was uploaded a day early by mistake. It’s a 7 minute interview with Hideo Kojima in which he answers questions about the game. At the end the release date is unveiled:

September 1, 2015 world wide.

The video has since been taken down, but you can see it here.

MGSV-TPP-September-1-Release-IGN

As annoying as this may be for Konami and IGN, the cat is out of the bag now, so we don’t have much choice but to publish the date as well.

Update: It looks like checking the news tomorrow will still be worth it:

    i was about to post this in the comments lol

    Because of this Kojima will reschedule to 1 Jan 2016 now 😉 , get your fiddles ready for tomo!

  • Romain Robin

    I’ve been waiting to see this news title on MGI for years ! I am sure that Nyxus was super excited to finally write down those words 🙂

    • Just a bit disappointing that it had to happen this way, through a leak.

      • kirtanloorii

        I was thinking the same thing. I wanted a grand event.

        • Maybe Konami should just have used the official MGSV site instead of IGN.

          • kirtanloorii

            I know, right? Is it really THAT hard to run a site?

      • No Place For Hayter

        Yeah it is disappointing, but I got a good laugh out of it, to check on MGI and get a release date I thought I was getting tomorrow because of a leak, lol.

  • Shalashaska

    This is all of a reaction I can give to this. Another 6 months is like..

    Last game … Lets be honest.. No way .. BUT YEA I do believe that this may be the final game Explaining and covering every corner of the Saga. To kojima-san… no matter what the date.. we still love you for bringing it to us.

  • YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

  • Xilurm

    Oh Lord there are going to be so many failed exams during September!

  • Josh Houchin

    Great scoop, Nyxus! Now I know when to schedule a vacation!

  • Nathan Middleton

    This is going to be a long half-year.

  • kirtanloorii

    EDIT!

    Someone else found a better quality one. Watch this one instead: http://player.mais.uol.com.br/embed_v2.swf?mediaId=15394169&p=tvuol

    • Shalashaska

      Thanks.. downloaded it just now. haha did anyone else go like “f**k it” and then skipped to the end ?

      • kirtanloorii

        Actually I watched the whole thing. It was dubbed in English after all.

        • Shalashaska

          hehe i just wanted a confirmed date.. watching it right now 😀

      • decoyF0XX

        Can you send me the link please? The video up there keeps cutting on my system.

        • Shalashaska
          • decoyF0XX

            That’s the same one though 🙁 the video cuts about halfway and even when I skip forward. How do I download it?

          • Shalashaska

            .. sorry.. check the previous thread for another video.. a gu called Ceaser or something like that posted it.. i’ll try and upload if i can.. my pc is hanging at the moment .. im decryptig a file..thats why it took ages for me to reply :/

          • decoyF0XX

            Just found his comment, sadly IGN has taken the video down, I guess I’ll have to wait till tommorow. Thanks anyway.

          • decoyF0XX

            Found it wooot!

            https://vid.me/mz9w

            It’s a low quality version but at least I can watch it now.

          • Shalashaska

            look down.. another guy called irion de ronin posted it.. its way down and i think it’s better quality

    • Amirmasoud Roostaei

      Bro you da shieeeeet ! Thanks a lot

    • StealthyBigBoss

      Thanks for the video upload, It made me sad when he said ‘to me this is the last metal gear’ 🙁

      • True but on the other hand, this isn’t the first time he said that.

        • StealthyBigBoss

          It’s just hearing him say it, after anticipating the game and having to wait 6 months for the release, it’s gonna be a long 6 months

          • StealthyBigBoss

            I just don’t want kojima to stop making MGS games lol

        • PrinceHeir

          He’s kinda like Miyazaki, though at least he’s kinda semi-retire and concentrates more on that ghibli museum.

          Doubt it this will be the last seeing he already has some plans on the next theme as well as Konami will force him out to do more MGS in the near future.

        • Icycool

          I would say this sounds very true this time because both Snake’s saga will come to an end with this. The only way he would return is for remakes or Boss’s and cobra units exploit in World War 2.

          • Yeah he has been talking about that several times. He wanted the younger staff to make it but they didn’t dare.

          • Icycool

            There is a speculative guess from my end why he himself will at least do the boss’s story himself. Pure speculation. I would say Skullface is a bit younger than big boss, maybe 3 to 4 years. The factory that was blowed up was done by no one else than boss and her cobra unit under the false information supplied by CIA. I guess that could sum up with the story and theme of TPP which is Revenge. Big Boss is the last known son of boss. Zero is only person who knew her since her teenage years. If you look at the location where the factory is located in google maps. Skull face is Hungarian so If we assume that factory was in Hungary then on google map it shows the distance between normandy and hungary is 1719 km. Then again I m just assuming too much.

      • Venom_Snake_BB

        If Kojima says ”it is mine last metal gear” it is not…

      • Shalashaska

        I think he has said that once or twice before. What he means is that the circle of the war.. the SAGA of MGS is over and EVERY corner and every angle is now taken care of. Like How HP series would be incomplete without Goblets of fire.. THIS is MGS’s Goblet of Fire 😀 Thereby completing the whole Saga

        • StealthyBigBoss

          Good way to think of it 🙂

    • Bramdeman

      Thanks! I hope you can disable the online part because I want to enjoy the story.

    • ThreeMadFrogs

      So should we believe Kojima when he says this will be the last Metal Gear Solid game? You’ve just found a perfect formula and now you want to stop? I don’t get it.

      • kirtanloorii

        Never believe Kojima. He has said this before.

        • ThreeMadFrogs

          Well yes and no. He usually says it’ll be his last game as director, but MGS will continue. This time I’m sure he said this is the last MGS game.

          • Mack Ayash

            No he didn’t. Go watch again. He said its the end of the “MGS saga” which relates to Solid Snake and Big Boss. He said even if MGS goes on, this is the last game in the saga and his last MGS game. The series will go on. He’ll probably stick around.

  • Schmojima

    For how long did I wait for this post to happen?
    Thank you Nyxus for your tremendous effort, thank you, thank you, thank you!

  • Bramdeman

    Yea!!

  • Cartmangus
  • César H. Sandoval

    GOING NUCLEAR NOW
    Come fast, September 1st!!

  • PrinceHeir

    IGN so fucking stupid. They also leaked Tekken 7 announcement way ahead of its Evo reveal.

    Should have been a surprised, but at least it’s finally here.

    • Shalashaska

      Yea they been leaking stuff everywhere.. Propaganda to keep their stuff alive and from dying ? Stoped checking it out long ago.. everything seemed so fake there

    • Yeah they screwed up big time here. But now there’s no going back, the news is out in the wild now.

  • I wanted it for summer. :'(
    I hope at least that the release will be for all systems at same time. Consoles and PC.

    Have a nice day 🙂

  • PrinceHeir

    “I was shocked when I heard you say it’s been 27 years since the first [Metal Gear],” Kojima said. “I always say ‘this will be my last Metal Gear.’ But the games in the series that I’ve personally designed and produced—Metal Gear for MSX, Metal Gear 2, Metal Gear Solid 1, 2, 3, 4, and Peace Walker, and now Metal Gear Solid V—are what constitute a single Metal Gear saga. With Metal Gear Solid V, I’m finally closing the loop on that saga. In that sense, this will be the final Metal Gear Solid. Even if the Metal Gear franchise continues, to me, this is the last Metal Gear.”

    Also no way this is the Final Metal Gear game to Kojima(maybe as for a new game).

    We need that remake on MSX please! You already said last year you were planning on a new game, but different theme than The Phantom Pain

    http://www.dualshockers.com/2014/03/29/hideo-kojima-thinks-metal-gear-solid-v-wont-be-the-end-but-the-next-could-have-a-different-theme/

    • Shalashaska

      He has said this before. MANY TIMES. Although.. I do think this maybe the last game finally covering every corner of it’s saga

  • Guest

    Sorry but what 6

  • PrinceHeir

    I was hoping to save this on announcement day

    http://i.imgur.com/UeZUwjj.gif

    • Shalashaska

      hahaha you did this too? I did the same xD although.. many more gifs.. i went crazy ..somewhere down there xD .. man ive gotta controll with the amount of gifs im sharing .. somewhere out there is a guy cursing me for the sh**load amount of gifs his pc has to load xD

    • No Place For Hayter

      Don’t worry Ocelot, we all have.

  • Shalashaska
    • No Place For Hayter

      I think you just killed my brain, lol.

      • Shalashaska

        And your PC 😉 xD

        • No Place For Hayter

          Guess my PC likes GIFs

          • Shalashaska

            hahaha perhaps it does.. although i have used gifs on good pcs too and for some stupid reason.. even then they are pretty crappy slow for some reason O.o

    • Big_Boss88

      Amazing XD.

  • Venom_Snake_BB

    What 6 months ? I am not waiting for May or June but not waiting for September too. Shocked and Fiddled again.

  • Alberto Sánchez

    Epic fail.

  • kirra light

    Yeah bitch !

  • The Law

    MGS V getting release date and IGN getting royaly frakked up the rear end at the same time? BEST-DAY-EVER!

    • It’s very ironic that IGN is now basically the only site that doesn’t have a post about this news, probably precisely because of their exclusivity deal. Though you have to feel bad for Konami. First, Metal Gear Rising trailer is leaked, than the Nuclear trailer and now this.

      • The Law

        IGN are just bunch of clowns, no developer should trust them anymore. They are most obnoxious and biased journalist site out there.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Agreed, lol.

  • I really wanted it to come before summer…. Whatever, still worth it!!!

  • XIFF-5

    The fact that the release date hurts me more than waiting for the game without knowing it, is a little bit funny and sad :/

  • Shalashaska Has Landed

    I can’t believe the Phantom Cigar I clicked on, actually worked. LMFAO.

    Thanks, IGN.

    • Cesare Di Maio

      just…amazing connection

    • Shalashaska
      • Ricardo Oe

        Yeaahhh!!!

      • Ken Shiro

        Am I the only one disappointed with a September 1 release date? I was hoping for June, July at the latest.

        • I was saddened for about 10 seconds, then I realized. This is basically 6 months out and I have still have to unlock all the trials in Ground Zeroes. This gives me a month to play the shit out of every game before release. I only need maybe 2 days each to finish every game. But I’m going to try and do everything there is to do in every title. and I’m going to enjoy every minute of it. MGS 1, MGS 2, MGS 4 finish the Solid Snake series. Then onto MGS 3, MGS: PW then the blessed MGS: GZ’s. Finishing off the year with the biggest and baddest of all. PHANTOM PAIN then legitimately going for a platinum in that game. I never try to get all the achievements or trophies in a game. But this… It’s been to long!!!

          • Shalashaska

            well I’ve basically finihsed everything there is to do in GZ .. hell i know the patrols by now and can sometimes guess where they will respawn.. i’ve even gone full missions without stealth killing every guy cause it’s actually fun because the soldiers are challenging.. so yea.. everything is done.. same goes for MGS 3 and Peacewalker :’/

        • Shalashaska

          No you are not aloneeee.. :'( In the words of Big Boss “I’ll always be with you”

    • No Place For Hayter

      Looks like your Mother Base has higher tech than mine.

      • César H. Sandoval

        Gotta fulton more Nerds, bro.

        • Alberto Sánchez

          xD

    • Cipher

      use it again to pass the 6 months 😀

  • Batzi

    DLC coming tomorrow I think.

    • Raymondius

      Batzi pls. No one trusts you anymore.

      Don’t get me wrong, general, you’re still the Boss of trolling. But please… June?? Damn that ‘confidential information’ of yours.

      • Batzi

        It was a tentative date meaning it could have been easily changed. I never said it was 100%. I clearly said tentative. As for tomorrow, let’s wait and see but I think it’s a DLC.

  • PrinceHeir

    I already plan on buying the JPN Collector’s Edition and US Collector’s Edition. So i could experience both voice acting of the game on both sides 🙂

    JPN has English Subs in case anyone’s wondering, but the slight edits might turn off a few people.

    Anyways Wednesday would have been an amazing day, but at least i didn’t have class today till 2PM 🙂

    Despite IGN ruining things, gotta think positive. Blows my mind we’ve been waiting since the 2012 GZ reveal. 3 years never felt so long!

    I’m ready to take revenge on those Cipher’s bastards for destroying the base and tainting The Boss’s Legacy

    http://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/s–afLpHol7–/xgwhoj7qkdmsvrpriovl.gif

    • Hopefully Konami will reveal the collector’s editions tomorrow.

      • PrinceHeir

        If EU has better CE than US i might get that.

        Only problem is DLC since it’s account based. I may have to make a EU account, but don’t know where to buy PSN points for someone outside of EU.

        Play Asia sells JPN PSN cards for those who plan on playing the JPN version.

    • Big_Boss88

      Hey Prince didn’t you also predict a September release :D?

    • Icycool

      strange coincidence i also dont have a class till 2 pm but i do have test at 2pm so meh i will be busy tonight.

    • Silverius

      From GZ i got that Skull face is trying to nail Both, March 15th, 1975: Bargaining with Paz (Final Recording)

      Skull Face: “First Big Boss, then Zero. Liberation is at hand.”

  • Invader_skoodge

    ugh…..I ……I can’t….My Hype really died. That date doesn’t work for me. Specially with those *rumors* that Konami JP wanted more time for *marketing* and it could be released earlier than that. OF course that is just a rumor but just thinking of that being a possibility makes this date more of a bummer.

    • stocchinet .

      5 months dude, they will fly like nothing

      • 7*

        • kirtanloorii

          I count 6.

          • March, April, May, June, July, August, September.

            Actually you’re right, september doesnt count cause it’s released on the first day, so yeah, 6.

          • Shalashaska

            Still.. 6.. 12 months in a year.. 3rd month going on.. its like half a year away..

    • Zlatan

      It’s funny how almost everybody cried for the release date and now that we finally have it, people start to cry about how its not what they wanted.

      • ThreeMadFrogs

        You mean because we’ve been waiting for a few years for this and they dangle the carrot just that much further out of reach? They could have announced this last year and it would have been easier to digest. But fuck us, right?

        • Zlatan

          no, just you. the never announced anything except 2015. they kept their promise.

      • ThreeMadFrogs

        Nice how you stopped the “fuck you” part…

        • Big_Boss88

          No I actually edited it off, because I got certain orders and try keep posts friendly :).

  • Shiragama

    Oh man, just read that Mad Max comes out on september 3rd..it was one of my most anticipated titles this year and what happens?..right..the same day mgs v gets it release date the mad max game get it too..and then the release date is nearly the same..can’t be true :(..well whatever, The Phantom Pain is more important, max has to wait a little longer then 😉

  • ObsessedGeorge

    Oh man, the leaking can’t stop… Damn, this exclusive stuff is to blame? IGN is to blame? I don’t know. Anyway, finally we have a solid release date. Why so long though? I thought this game was at the de-bugging proccess. It is supposed to be almost ready. This is taking too long. No way I was expecting an after summer release.

    • PrinceHeir

      I don’t know why Kojima won’t just reveal it on their Konami573 channel.

      Everyone goes there for any MGSV news and gameplay demonstrations. They get more money due to views and it’s basically an MGS centric channel compared to IGN who covers a lot of games.

      Unless IGN threw a lot of money on this(which i won’t be surprised).

  • Shiragama

    Does anybody know if there is going to be a livestream for tomorrow’s show ?

    • Isn’t it just the leaked video? Although we don’t know what will happen on the official site once the countdown ends.

      • Shiragama

        I think/hope that there is going to be at least a little video with ingame footage and this video only was like an information video made for ign and that kojima prod. has it’s “own” trailer” I don’t think that they just tell us the release date on the website and then only show this video with questions in it we already know. it’s too little for kojima although nobody can look inside his mind.

        • Yeah you’re right, there is more news coming tomorrow after all!

      • Shiragama

        Sooo, you heard the latest #MGSVTPP news? There's more coming, so stay tuned for more announcements, tomorrow @ 2PM (GMT)!— Su (@ParodiSu) 3. März 2015

        And then there is this..

        • Good to hear there is more news coming! Still something to look forward to tomorrow.

        • Shalashaska

          MGO BETA! I CAN F**ING BET YOU THAT! OR OR AS I SAID BEFORE , MGO COULD BE RELEASING SOONER! SO MAYB A RELEASE DATE TO THAT

  • Invader_skoodge

    COMING 1984. 1/9/84 1/9………You motherfuuuuuu..!!!!!!!

    • PrinceHeir

      Would have been better if it was 1985 since the year is 2015 today.

    • still gotta know what that 84 means

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        In the distance,Kojima hears the sound of a fiddle as it is slowly played……

      • Shalashaska

        The decibels of the fiddles being given per 10cm of the world’s surface area.

    • Shalashaska
    • Big_Boss88

      I knew it was hidden there, I KNEW IT but not many believed me :O.

      • Shalashaska

        Hey I thought it was too but .. I didnt want to believe it would be so late ;'(

    • TJXXIV

          • Shalashaska

            PythonSelkan’s Pant’s must have just exploded. POOF. “We bring you a new kojima approved theory; Kojima confirms that he is Gray fox and Big Boss is Kojima and we will play as Shinakawa in TPP!”

          • kirtanloorii

            Even if he turns out to be wrong, those videos are very entertaining to watch. The next best thing while we wait for a launch.

          • Big_Boss88

            Nice similarity XD!

          • Raymondius

            OMG Kojima, stop giving them stupid reasons to do it again… FACEPALM (see I did there?)

          • Oh, shit! Thanks for pointing this out!
            Gray Fox is my fav character. Let’s see what happens. 🙂

            I bet they’re ecstatic right now. :/

          • There it is. And look at the thumbnail. 😛

        • Nacrois

          Holy… from where did that come from!!!?? :O

          • Wondering the same.
            I couldn’t find another one like this :O

            Joaquim = Kojima, lol

        • Shalashaska

          Man HE LOOKS EVIL. THE ASH MAKES a 1!!! 1/9 CONFIRMED!!! oh..wait..

          Wonder if anyone has come up with Illuminati conspiracies in regards to these pics, or i guess even metal gear in general.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Gotta love it, lol.

    • decoyF0XX

      HOW DIDN’T WE EVER SEE THIS!

    • AbdElRahmanSnake

      Splendid Brother !!

  • Golgari

    Finally. That’s actually good.

    You have E3 and Gamescom for trailers and promotion. This masterpiece need That!

  • Big_Boss88

    Thank you god <3! I feel really emotional when finally getting this date, so damn happy really T_T…
    Also the months will go fast.

    So TPP preparation will finish with a big bang in E3? Also one thing I wonder about this world wide release is, that what about PC version? Will it come at same time or later, I guess we wait to find out :).

    • Shalashaska

      it’s a worldwide release so im guessing it’s multi-plat release at once

      • Big_Boss88

        Yea that was what I think too, so maybe world wide release means for EVERY platform. I will buy at least 4 copies of TPP lol, for me PS4 and PC and for my brothers XD!

        • Shalashaska

          haha nice! I’ll get one the second it comes out.. hey who knows.. i might even get it slightly early .. a day or two perhaps

  • Altaim

    ..

  • ThreeMadFrogs

    September? That is weak…

    • Kol Leqejza

      uääääääääääääh…!

  • MrVux007

    guys….

  • ominonarepus

    another leak for poor Kojima… I bet hes not happy…

  • vic boss

    Well my fellow comrades, it’s been a long road but the game is almost here, although this will be the longest 6 months of my life, and summer will go so slow. But at least we have a date now and when the game comes out we know that Kojima will deliver an awesome experience that will be GOTY or possible the best game of all time. Also I’d like to thank Nyxus for always keeping us updated with the latest news about MGS

    • Big_Boss88

      I salute you my brothers! Actually vic, I think summer will go fast. Well depends on what you do, but many games I wanna play are coming soon, Bloodborne, MK10, The Witcher3 etc will keep me occupied. But can only enjoy them fully if I can keep my mind off TPP, which is nearly impossible :D.

      P.S. loved the video! <3

    • That first trailer was the shit. I finally had time to watch it. daaaang

  • Yofiel Malachi Yacov

    Man I’m done talking and hyping this game up. September is so far away. I’ll still buy it but this killed the last hype I ever had

    • Kol Leqejza

      dude, knowing the releasedate is like a BIG relief!

      • Yofiel Malachi Yacov

        Half a relief. Especially for someone getting this on PC it may not be to assuring. I don’t get why you hold an announcement for something half a year away

        • Kol Leqejza

          because i appreciate what we get.

  • Looking at the good side, we got E3 and others game events coming before sep. 1st so they can do a huge merchandising there, Also, it’s closer to christmas, which means they’ll also sell a lot there. So don’t worry guys, we’ll get to play it when the time is right and the community is going to be huge and perfect.

  • AbdElRahmanSnake

    yeeeees the game will release after i finish my studies i am so happy

  • ElAlca

    I’M SO FUCKING HAPPY.

  • kirtanloorii

    This reminds me of when the rebels blow up the death star. Let’s celebrate, but remember that it’s not over.

  • Guest

    we are diamond sheepshttp://img.ffffound.com/static-data/assets/6/32875742ed7e710a8eac6d80bbf6829793779ffd_m.jpg

    • No Place For Hayter

      I hope that sheep is driving home after a party like that, quick someone fulton him.

  • TJXXIV

    Man, i hope hype this is just a leak rumour. Sep is just too damnnnnn long. I hope Kojima comes up with a new release date. Something like April-May. Gosh .. please Kojima. Make it happen!

    • Kol Leqejza

      u get it, when u get it!

  • No Place For Hayter

    God that is funny, gotta love the internet for things like this lol, the leakiest ship around, lol.

    That being said with a release date I can now sit back relax and wait 🙂

    P.S. They had better start announcing special editions soon 🙁

    • Big_Boss88

      Hell yes :), now we all can relax ;).

      • No Place For Hayter

        Location, location, location, you will never know where I am 🙂

        • Big_Boss88

          >:C …

  • Big_Boss88

    Come on guys, we FINALLY got the date! Don’t say September is far away because time goes fast in the end, instead lets be ultra happy of this amazing news!!! We’ve been waiting for this very long time :D!

  • Schmojima

    Guys, (some of you) please stop bitchin’ about the date. Please.

    This is really good news and it sounds quite arrogant to even want an earlier release – kojipro are working like crazy (they are japanese nonetheless) to get this game out and they probably even chose a tight time frame without much wiggle room.

    Kojipro will be doing so so many nightshifts, just. for. us., so please appreciate their hard work and stop bitchin’.

    No offense to ya’ll, just think about it for a second.

    • No Place For Hayter

      I have been content with waiting and I was fine with any release date as long as they try their hardest and release a none broken product, and I’m sticking with that September is just fine in my books, lol I think everyone is disappointed because they were expecting a June release date.

    • Big_Boss88

      When watching the video ppl can understand how genius Kojima is when he explain the stuff. And he don’t imo need to thank us for having patience, instead we should be bowing to the man for all his hard work. His speech in the end, about TPP being final MGS for him and hoping fans be excited of it made me almost cry ;(.

      Maaan all that hit so hard to me…I seriously love Kojima, he’s so humble and all. Best game developer ever. Knowing it come this year was good enough for me, but many was thinking it come too soon, thinking all those impossible dates.

  • flying_fox

    I had bet on September 15th…! Close enough. 🙂

    This is so exciting!

    Let’s not whine about the date but celebrate this long-awaited revelation. 😉

    • Schmojima

      Hell, yeah!

    • Shalashaska

      I’m just hoping he goes like “trolled you bi**es” ,its releasing next month! ”
      OR
      “Ok it’s sept but here’s a demo for your greedy ass’s”

      • Mini gear

        I really need a demo for top, and no one say go because we need a new demo, maybe for those who bought GZ

        • Shalashaska

          I REALLY REALLY HOPE because there is absolutely nothing new coming for Xbox 360 :'( just MKx in April which im really excited for 🙂

          • Mini gear

            mk is gonna be good, but you and me are from diffrent worlds of ps and XB

          • Shalashaska

            just got XB because it was cheaper.. if not for that.. i’d be a PS console only guy 🙂
            I do regret it though.. never gotta play MGs4 :'(

  • I can’t shake the feeling that there is some damn fiddles being played on this one. I wouldn’t be surprised if tomorrow they actually give a different date because of this supposedly “leak”

    • Schmojima

      You think? It feels so right in my opinion ;D

      • We’ve been played by him many times, so the thought of being played like a damn fiddle never leaves my mind lol

  • AbdElRahmanSnake
  • FOX

    Well kojima did deserve this leak.After trolling and makin us wait for years 😉

    • Schmojima

      Hah! You are right!!!
      For trolling us so damn long

  • Golgari

    I’m absolutely happy about the date.

    Look guys. Summer is good for your health. Take some time and have some fun at the sea or at the beach. In the meantime Metal Gear Informer will be your best friend for Metal Gear news and discussion. On top of that you get E3+Gamescom with sexy Metal Gear trailers, CE reveals and other stuff and on September 1 you will be the happiest guy/girl on earth.

    Guys. It’s the best date. You get your summer and the game in 2015 before Christmas.

    Have some fun.

    • Big_Boss88

      Well said brother :), and for gamers out there Witcher 3 and Batman are coming in May-June I think…so those 2 alone will keep people busy if get them.

      I think TPP coming in September is great, as I don’t always like playing very much in Summer. Because it’s so damn hot inside ;D.

      E3 will kick ass Golgari :D, I think we see there something amazing!

      • Shalashaska

        Man I hope I can upgrade my Pc by then .. I have to collect alot then.. if i save up 200 a month, I can get a Gaming pc in 2 years :'(

        As for the Xbox 360 .. there is only the MK x in april ! Excited for that 😀

        I’m hoping we get a demo for TPP or an expansion for GZ 🙂

        • Big_Boss88

          My pc I bought a little over year ago was about 1100€ and it’s pretty great. There was much expensive ones but I’ve been able to play most games with high settings on this one.

          Can get good ones these days with pretty decent prices I think.

          • Shalashaska

            lol dude thats like 2500 bucks or something where i live.. ! for that i’d get really good stuff 🙂 I’m working with a friend of mine who is into pc gaming so i asked him to help me get cheap but good stuff 🙂
            all that is left is for me to collect THAT much money.. may take a long time though :'(

          • Big_Boss88

            If I ever win in lottery during these few months, I send you 100k or something XD.
            🙂

          • Shalashaska

            haha .. lets pray that you or I and I or you win a lottery in the next few months 😀

          • Mini gear

            shala if you know what youre doing you can get a perfecct pc for 1300 like i did

          • Shalashaska

            shalalalala xD Details ? 😀

          • Jonny McLaurine

            You spend 4800$$ on a PC, you should be kicked in your head. Why not save 400 in six months and buy a ps4 or xb1? Or just pay someone to build you a gaming PC for 1k to 1200k. 4800 is building your comp on a computer site and getting name brand everything that you don’t need. 2400 is too much

          • Shalashaska

            I got a friend (best friend actually) who is giving me a price of 544.52 to 680 US dollars. The guy knows his stuff. I LOVE THE MAN 😀
            So I’m hoping I can do that .. not that easy to save up when the expenditure is so much :/

      • decoyF0XX

        It’ll be so hard to focus while playing other games but hopefully The Witcher and MKX will keep the feels at bay.

        Btw Dark Souls is really awesome man, I just beat the dragon gargoyle thingy a few days ago! I’m moving at a slow pace because I’m really busy nowadays but it’s always awesome to escape into that world, It’s like Zelda for grown ups (not that Zelda is for kids lol).

    • Kol Leqejza

      i will have a LOT of fun in august. being 24/7 in my dark & lonely basement & playin metal gear, metal gear 2, MGS, MGS VR Missions, MGS 2, MGS 3, MGS 4, peace walker AND ground zeroes.

      so thank you, sir.

    • RevolverRoden

      I wish I could agree but… September is the worst possible date IMO.
      RIGHT before classes start again…What a terrible time to release a game.
      I don’t know about you, but I can go to the beach and play MGSV during the same summer.
      :{

    • Javier Sosa

      It`s not like that in the whole world.

    • Solid O. #V

      It’s winter here for me at June :'(

  • StealthyBigBoss

    Also when you said ‘The cat is out of the bag now’ you should of put Ocelot instead of cat haha

  • kirtanloorii

    Looks like Kojima got played like a fiddle this time.

  • Mini gear
    • Big_Boss88

      Mini god bless you, this needs to be put on the front page of MGI or something ;D!
      181 days, not much longer.

      • Schmojima

        Maybe nyx can install a countdown to release? 😀

      • Mini gear

        thanks boss 🙂 , yeaah we should have nyxus put a exact counter on the side of the site

    • Shalashaska

      Daym, you quick! I was just working on one of those xD check out the “text versin”.. looks so dayum classy.

      • Still 15670605 seconds to go.

        • Shalashaska

          If only My eyes had a second counter, i’d be going everywhere with a counter in the side of my view. Either way.. time to start counting! 15670605… 15670604….15670603….15670602.. Someone get me that PHANTOM CIGAR!

        • Big_Boss88

          Oh gosh…so many seconds. I rather think of the days, there is so few left ;)…

        • Mini gear

          oh god thats forever

    • Edward Wokhands

      WHY? You could travel to the moon and back about 24 times in that amount of time. -_________________________________-

  • Altaim

    Any leak about special editions???

    • Maybe tomorrow, check the tweet added to the bottom of the post.

      • Big_Boss88

        Oh maaan I’m so gonna start pre-ordering the shit outta this masterpiece, when they announce them :D.

        Btw thanks Nyxus for your job during the months/years :), you can maybe relax now a little bit when we got the biggest news we have desired.

        • No Place For Hayter

          Maybe Nyxus can relax, it might be pretty busy now that they have a set date and that large events are incoming before the game is released. One thing is for sure there will be less comments because no one will be asking for a release date anymore lol.

          • Shalashaska

            Dont worry.
            I’ll make sure to fill in for those comments with my sexy Gifs/memes

          • Big_Boss88

            I’m traumatized for life now.

          • Shalashaska

            You havent seen anything yet! There is alot more to come ! xD Hey .. tomorrow is the new trailer, no doubt.. im gonna be making another video using that 😀

          • Big_Boss88

            Omg really…HOW THE HELL am I supposed to concentrate on working tomorrow lol :D… 99% of my brain are thinking about TPP o_O and what we might see.

          • Shalashaska

            “Boss, Im too sick to come to work, im having diarrhea” .. WORKS LIKE A CHARM.

          • Schmojima

            Hahahaha

          • Big_Boss88

            Aye I think the amount of comments will drop by at least 50% now haha ;D.

          • Look at what happened yesterday. 😉

          • Big_Boss88

            …good point lol.

          • We’re still going to get an E3 and a Gamescom before MGSV is out. And then we get the pre-release promotion and hype. Maybe Kojima will do a world tour again.

          • Big_Boss88

            Was Gamescom in August?

          • August 5 – 9 this year.

          • Big_Boss88

            Woah holy crap, sorry Nyx I didnt see this image at first but now I actually see what you meant…LOL :D. A little jump in the end.

          • Today may even have more comments.

          • Shalashaska

            Thankyou Nyxus. i wish kojima calls out this site someday.. afterall.. its probably the best MGS community there is on the internet. You’d Deserve the credit for all this work 🙂

    • StealthyBigBoss

      Not yet, however there will be more info tomorrow at 2pm. Confirmined by @parodisu on twitter

  • StealthyBigBoss

    I think we’ll get a new trailer tomorrow, if you remember kojima posted pics of his editing keyboard not to long ago.

    Not sure how I’m gonna pass time for release date but if it is a new trailer I’ll be watching the hell out of it

    • Big_Boss88

      This day is almost the happiest day in my life honestly lol ;), and tomorrow will be too if get new trailer. But happiest will be when I insert my TPP into ps4.

      • StealthyBigBoss

        Same here, everyone must think I’m crazy the way I go on about MGSV lol but yeah once TPP is in my hands nothing will ruin my day

      • Shalashaska

        The day I see my xbox Start up MGS TPP, All my organs will explode from hhappiness

        http://i.imgur.com/pVjFDfI.gif

        • StealthyBigBoss

          Haha, keep it together!! We waited so long for that day don’t let exploding organs ruin it xD

          • Big_Boss88

            Ye I dont want to invade empty MB, so hang in there Shala. :).

          • Shalashaska

            aww man.. you wont be able to invade my base, i have better internet now (10mbs) but my xbox still doesnt connect to the internet.. too old i guess.. i dont know what the issue is.. hoping i get a pc to play TPP.. that way, it’ll look better when I play and i can play online 🙂

          • StealthyBigBoss

            Get a PS4 😀

          • Shalashaska

            Cant , I want to start video editing too so Its a PC for me.. plus Pc is better than a ps4 when it comes to specs so that’s a plus.. if it wasnt for that, i’d probably get a ps4.

        • No Place For Hayter

          Agreed.

          I can’t stop watching that GIF……….

        • Edward Wokhands

          I was eating a curry while browsing these comments. I am not anymore.

  • RoderickThe13

    THE TIME HAS COME! Finally, after waiting so long, we have a specific date to look up to. I gotta say though that these leaks freak me out a little. I hope there aren’t any leaks about the plot or anything like that.

  • Silverius

    LOL, how you like them Fiddles kojima? What a tremendous fuck up. First the nuclear trailer, now the release date. Good riddance!

    • Shalashaska

      lol just yesterday i was like “why IGN .. seriously from anyone they could have given it to.. why IGN, this is gonna be a mess up” .. cant believe i was actually correct

  • Ricey123

    Who is this parodiSu???

    • European Communications Manager at Konami.

  • FOX

    But what was the message Kojima wanted to deliver us.Something is still suspicious here.İf the whole world gets TROLLED again by kojima.This should be in guiness word records as a biggest trolling. lol

    • Shalashaska

      THAT video was the message unfortunately/fortunately that got leaked earlier thanks to IGN 🙂

  • LuxAlike

    I would give my left arm for TPP…!

    Specifically at the elbow…

    ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    • Ahhhhh! You so sly!

    • No Place For Hayter

      I would give my whole right arm and my left leg at the knee down.

      • LuxAlike

      • No Place For Hayter

    • Shalashaska

      EXACTLY ! SAME HERE! I’m gonna switch my pc off now and gonna play GZ 😀

  • The last Bravo

    Glad we finally got the release date. Watched the vid too. Anyone notice the music used during the video? Specifically the one that starts at the 2:00 mark? They’re probably new tracks from the game. They sound sooo goood!!

    • Bramdeman

      No, they are gorgeous!! 😀

    • decoyF0XX

      I was about to say this too, I hope they’re in the game!!

  • Ricey123

    Ive already booked the tuesday an wednesday off work, told me girlfriend shes got to stay at her mums house with the baby for a week an dont bother me at all, hope to end up like this…

  • AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    so, a couple of months and it’ll be here, not much time left waiting, we have a date to look forward to. so it’s way less terrible to wait like this

    • Edward Wokhands

      Three couples of months. -_- Honestly thought it would be earlier. Then again I did guess September when he took those Japanese voice actor pics just a few weeks ago. I thought I was playing it safe, like if I said “September” it would be June or earlier. I hate being right all the time. >=|

      • hahaha well, seems you where right. but, let’s look at the bright side. know we know how long we’ll wait.

  • The video in HD.
    Let’s see what they say tomorrow in any case. As the news will worth it yet.
    Maybe all this is a fake and the game will come before?

    Let’s see. 🙂

    • Ricey123

      Hoping for a new trailer with a great new background tune

      • Big_Boss88

        That would be soooo incredible <3.

    • VIC BOSS

      I hope this is not last part of the series .

      • Big_Boss88

        Me too :). It might be for Kojima :C, although he never seems to get older so who knows. I think he still do Silent Hills and then something else with his life. Hope Metal Gear continues, but they might as well end with the best and most epic one, TPP :).

        If MGSVI would be developed by someone else than Kojima, not sure how I’d feel about it. MG1&2 remake would indeed be fantastic, but not sure if it ever happen as TPP brings saga into full circle.

        If I remember correctly, Master Kojima said last year that “MGSV won’t be the end of the story” or something similar.

        • VIC BOSS
          • Big_Boss88

            Yea that was the one :).

            I got it for Vita, but Vita PW don’t have trophy support :(. I’ll maybe get my HD collection back soon so can play :D!

    • Big_Boss88

      “When I first came up with the idea for Metal Gear, people told me story-telling don’t work in action games” How wrong were they >:O ?!

    • By the way, Konami is taking down all videos in Youtube. So here you have a dropbox version.
      720p, 112 megabytes size.

      Streaming
      https://www.dropbox.com/s/wninv15auwe83l9/%E2%96%B6%20MGSV%20-%2003_03_2015%20-%20YouTube%20%5B720p%5D.mp4?dl=0

      Downloadable
      https://www.dropbox.com/s/wninv15auwe83l9/%E2%96%B6%20MGSV%20-%2003_03_2015%20-%20YouTube%20%5B720p%5D.mp4?dl=1

      So you can watch it at home.
      What i don’t know if you will need a Dropbox account to watch it online, no idea. But i guess the downloadable version will work in any case.

      Have a nice day 🙂

        @disqus_YrhRPJ4Z6W:disqus

  • CodeBox

    I’m so excited, I was really hoping for a June release but September is better then November! At least now we can actually mark our calendars! 26 weeks to go!
    On a side note and It’s probably a crazy thought but I wonder if Kojima wanted to troll us one last time and faked the leak and had a different release date planned for tomorrow?

    • Mini gear

      id be happyer because september is so far even though he says “sprinting to the finish line” and “putting the finel touches”

  • FOX

    Don’t die,don’t die

    • StealthyBigBoss

      Konami removed it

      • FOX

        i downloaded it already.He said this will be my LAST MGS for sure.Even if the series continue i won’t be part of it 🙁

        • StealthyBigBoss

          Oh yeah I already saw it made me sad too 🙁

          • Theo Cevallos

            Didn’t he himself admit he ALWAYS says that? Though even so… it’s very sad to hear..

  • Adamska

    Comrades, it’s time to celebrate.

    Release date… this is… pretty… good.

  • Xomak

    September 1st? That’s a little disappointing to hear, I was hoping for a June release. On an optimistic angle, maybe the PS4 will see a price drop by then (please!)? Hopefully a bundle is coming!

    • No Place For Hayter

      There had better be a bundle (won’t do me any good) MGS is a console seller any company worth its salt would make a bundle, though the problem is none of them are worth their salt so all we can do is hope.

    • turkishgamer35

      “maybe the PS4 will see a price drop by then (please!)? Hopefully a bundle is coming!” man that would be great planing play on my ps3 but if sony drop price drop+mgs5 bundle definitely gonna buy ps4

    Look what we’ve got here, some still waiting for a slip and others waiting for the icing on the cake coming… Open your eyes instead.

      Hey ain’t it time for you to take off the mask. Come on don’t be shy :).

    • Solid O. #V

  • prothy

    First the trailer leak, than this… seems fishy or just Kojima’s bad luck?

    • RevolverRoden

      Hope: Something fishy
      Truth: bad luck
      :{

      • prothy

        Yeah, but just imagine seeing it in the stores by surprise in, say, few weeks!!!

  • RevolverRoden

    Oh my god. This really sucks.
    UGH SEPTEMBER?! 6 months
    Right before school starts again. That’s not really something I can look forward to. FUCK

    • Mini gear

      i hate when games release diratcly after break, but at least i got a week off then

      • RevolverRoden

        I was SOOOO hoping for V/V/201V since its right when classes end. Damn…

        • Mini gear

          i liked V/V/210V and id wait till june if nessicery but how he put it near the end of 2015 isnt very nice when we had hopes for “early” then “mid” 2015, but we know when now… i hope kojima gave a fake date to test them though

          • RevolverRoden

            Hahaha I was thinking the same thing. What if it was a fake date? Doubt it thought. It would be AMAZING if tomorrow we get the announcement that it releases in June. y heart would burst.

  • RevolverRoden

    Honestly though, fire the idiot(s) at IGN who was (were) responsible for the leak. It ruined everything. Fuck off.

    • Cartmangus

      Ruined everything? You got to know the release date a day early. If anything IGN suffers from this as it was their exclusive from what I understand, and now that the news is out and they’ve taken it down they’re not getting traffic for the broken news, other sites reporting on the leak are, lol.

      So IGN already fucked themselves.

  • RevolverRoden

    Man I’m sure Kojma is MAD right now. This is the second leak for a big announcement.

    • Big_Boss88

      Yeah it’s pretty sad :(. If I remember the Nuclear trailer was accidentally leaked by Konami’s people, but IGN didn’t really need to do it again :P.

      • RevolverRoden

        Yeah it was leaked too. :[ I wanna cry right now

        • Edward Wokhands

          I was really enjoying the wait and excitement too. IGN, the scourge of gamers.

          • RevolverRoden

            I KNOW. That phantom cigar thing was so cool and the countdown was so hype. Even though the outcome would still be a dissapointing september date, the hype would’ve been fun.

          • Edward Wokhands

            Yeah, knowing everyone was watching all at once would have been really awesome. That kind of thing doesn’t happen anymore since everything is “on demand”. IGN genuinely ruined this.

          • Shalashaska

            lol its IGN .. cant expect better now ..can we ?

  • LiquidCampbell

    OMG!!! I CANT BELIEVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

    • RevolverRoden

      They said “Spring 2014” for GZ and it released March 18, which is technically winter. UGH i wish that was the case now

            buahahha i should hammer i xbox 360 till TPP comes out. SO MANY COMMENTS ! 6 above! 15 BELOW xD

          • PrinceHeir

            Lol i never thought you would link UC3 video on this 🙂

            Hype for UC4 and MGSV TPP!

            If UC4 comes out this year, it maybe a tie for me with MGSV.

          • CodeBox

            Uncharted 4 is the only game that could make me stop playing MGSV.
            I’ve been with the Uncharted series from the beginning and they are also (like MGS, only different) masterpieces!
            It could be though that I have loved Naughty Dog’s games since Crash 2 on PS1
            I can only imagine how special MGS is to those who have been with the series all these years. This is going to be a great year of gaming!

  • Shiragama

    Steamdatabase of GZ got updated. Anyone knows, if this is important ?

    • Shalashaska

      LETS HOPE THIS IS A TPP DEMO!! PLEASE OH GOD PLEASE LET THAT ‘TPP demo’ FILE ON DISC ACTUALLY BE A DEMO…PLEASE GOD PLEASE !

      • Silverius

        How?

        • Shalashaska

          there is a folder on the disc that is called “tpp” .. inside that folder is a file called “demo” But some people say that demo is a japanese name for something else so it could just be nothing :/

          • Silverius

            Holy shit, lets hope for something good then!

          • Shalashaska

            paun pauuuun paunnn…nothing ;'(

      • Mini gear

        i NEED IT!

        • Shalashaska

          well.. im sufeeeerrriiinggggg

    • Cartmangus

      I would be looking out for updates on the TPP page instead. I’m desperate for any kind of word on the PC version, I don’t even care if it is at a later date, I’d just like to know there is a planned date for it so I can decide if it is worth waiting instead of playing the ps3 version.

      • Raymondius

        I’m just in the exact same situation as you, Cart. Anyway, there is some hope it will be a true ‘worldwide release’.

        • Shalashaska

          guys i dont think you have to worry to wait for the pc edition.. i meanthe world worldwide releases sorta covers it, dont you think? 🙂

          • Shiragama

            Share your opinion.

          • Raymondius

            That’s what I want to believe, Shaly! 🙂

            (You ok with da name, huh, Shaly? xD)

          • Shalashaska

            haha im okay , buddy… but yea for your sake, i hope it releases on the same day 🙂

      • Shiragama

        Yeah of course, it would be better to look out for updates at tpp’s site. but this ”update” on steamdatabase was not just simlpy changing the changenumber but,…. well, did something bigger 😀 Oh and I think the PC version will be coming on the same day as the other versions but maybe they gonna reveal it tomorrow.

  • Edward Wokhands

    Wow, I feel like when you break up with a female friend that you love because it will hurt you too much to see her with other guys. I want to forget about this game… so… I won’t be visiting this site anymore until after release… it’s just……… too hard. v_v So this is goodbye.

    …not really. It’s impossible to stay away. This site is perfection. Game wise we have Majoras Mask 3D that just came out, The Witcher 3, Zelda Wii U, new Mario Kart 8 DLC, (8 tracks!) STAR FOX!!! Uncharted 4 and whatever new GDC announcements and news we’ll see starting tomorrow. Then next we’ve got E3 which isn’t too far away, you never know we might get some release dates for new awesome games that release before September. But even if we don’t we’ve got The Witcher 3’s ridiculously large world to run around.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Even if I did pretend to leave I would always still end up lurking without commenting….. that sounds like me most the time anyway, lol.

      • Edward Wokhands

        Yeah. When I started that comment I was genuinely thinking of not coming here anymore. Then I realized and thought the same thing. All I’d do is end up thinking “I can’t comment, someone will say “I thought you left?”” It’s crazy how much a game can affect you when it’s so well crafted. This is how much the story means to all of us. I’m making a game right now and it’s incredible how much I’ve learned from Kojima.

  • RevolverRoden

    I know this will never happen but I can dream:
    The whole thing turns out to be a ruse. Kojima’s finest. A controlled leak by Kojima. He gives us a realistic september date and on a tuesday, but the game doesn’t actually release then. Tomorrow, the announcement really is BIG like they claimed. The video ends, knowing everyone saw the september release date. And then, all of a sudden, a V appears on the screen. A slash, another V. Another slash. 2.0.1.V

    V/V/201V.

    The world explodes.
    Did you rike it???
    Me: WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAHOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
    Words that KILL

    • RevolverRoden

      Man, just thinking about this gives me butterflies and sends shivers down my spine. WOOOO

      • Edward Wokhands

        Even though I’ve heard and read it a million times “did you rike it???” really made me laugh this time. “Did you rike it???” would actually stop being funny and would just become cool if it turned out to be a controlled leak.

      • Mini gear

        abandoned the internet, took everything with her, then stopped anyone from making anouther

        • Invader_skoodge

          Well, she’s doing a web comic on tumblr or something called Cucumber Quest and she selfishly decided that nobody could continue the “Let’s Destroy Metal Gear” even going as far as shutting down a Kickstarter to make a comic for MGS4 and Peace Walker

          • Not very nice of her. I mean what negatives could come out of those comics? Everyone I know who watched them loved them 🙁

  • Boris Leal

    :D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • korruption

    Ah, waiting causes worry. For instance when I heard, “This time, it’s not just your Mother Base.”

    At one point during the interview with Kojima in the leaked video, he said “In early instances of the game, players will complete missions and enjoy the story as a standalone experience, and develop their Mother Base. However, at a certain point, the game opens up and each player’s story becomes intertwined with the experiences of others online, as they complete with rival Mother Bases, or invite others to their base as allies.”

    Which is all well and good for people into that sort of thing. However, I’ve stopped playing games online. So if for some reason this feature becomes mandatory or “only” going single player shows that it isn’t the main way to go (like PW has shown numerous times over) for those who play solo instead of online, then this game may not be for me after all. Just speculation of course, but I don’t want people messing around with my shit, or having to be online just to be able to play. =(

    • Cobra

      I’m pretty sure he went on record relatively recently saying that you can go through TPP offline (Or at least without the invasion mode enabled, I guess) and you’ll still be fine for it. I’m kinda in your boat though really, I’d like to not have people constantly invading my transit station during my first bloody play-through!

      • vic boss

        Yeah he said that one could turn the online options off for the MB battles not so long ago. But he also said that if you want the full experience you’ll have to be online as your MB will still be attacked but by the AI.

        • korruption

          In my case, the full experience here wouldn’t necessarily be the best one. The AI in the game will likely waste me a good number of times when the invasions begin anyway.

          Any player who invaded my base wouldn’t get much of a challenge taking my shit cause… well, I suck. Pretty much the main reason I never play games online. =]

    • MAG V Supreme

      Its been about mother base battles. Never got into a versus mode. The catch is while you play story someone can attack your base. Details never confirmed om exactly how it all works. Even with new interview that quote doesnt say exactly. Better off waiting for features to be explained and announced. No way they will ruin mgsv by allowing random people invade your ” stealth infiltration” story mode wise. I believe it also wont be our story mother base. It will be like a second base we have for online battles. Glad someone is paying attention to thou.

    • Ricey123

      Yerr watchdogs had that problem for me, jus wanted to do my own thing then id have people invading my game tryin to download shit from me, ok a couple of times but got annoying an cudnt turn it off, hope mgsV is not like this

    • Kojima has stated before that the online mother base stuff can be turned off. I’ll be playing, at least my first play through all alone! I’m with you on what you’re saying though. Not everything has to always be connected. For some reason a ton of developers think it’s a thing everyone wants.

        lol so much for your June release date.

    • Cristian Landeros

      kojima’s language

      “near completion” = 1 year
      “early 2015” = September

    • Things certainly came up. Kojima propbably still feels the Fox Engine still has something to prove and wants to make the game as bitching as possible.

  • Janeo

    I’m glad to finally hear when the release date is, to bad for me that I recently decided to join the army and by the time I get through all the tests and interviews and if I get in then it will probably be around this time when I have to go to another state for three months training which means I may not be able to play this for a little while longer. I realise now I should have made a big life decision after the game came out silly me.

  • Invader_skoodge

    I just finished a bag of liqueur dark chocolate truffles and it got me thinking.(and panting) Kojima unveiled The Phantom Pain under the name Moby Dick Studios. He unveiled Silent Hills with a P.layable T.easer that needed to be unlocked to show the trailer. And it was just mentioned in passing during E3. “oh by the way P.T. available for download…or whatever. >.>” And boom! Silent Hills Could this be another Red Herring? I need to drink some water. @~@
