The official press release states:

Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has announced it’s highly anticipated METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN title will be the subject of a Limited Edition PlayStation®4 Console Bundle on September 1st.

A special agreement between KONAMI and Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE), a division of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc., the branded console will be released concurrently with METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN. The bundle will include the PlayStation®4 (PS4™) computer entertainment system with 500GB hard disk drive (HDD) and the Wireless Controller (DUALSHOCK®4), both in their special METAL GEAR SOLID V design, and the METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN DAY 1 EDITION software title for PS4™. The bundle will be available in a limited quantity.

The PS4 system included in the bundle comes in a special deep red colour with gold line detail, inspired by the look of Snake’s ‘Bionic Arm’ in the game. The DUALSHOCK 4 Wireless Controller is a metallic grey colour, resembling the handgun held by Snake. Both the PS4 system and the DUALSHOCK 4 Wireless Controller feature the unit emblem of Diamond Dogs, a private military initiative led by Snake. The product also includes a METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN special theme for PS4™.

  • Plissken

    Now if this sort of thing could come a little further west…

  • solideater

    Limited Edition With 1TB hard disk would be nice.

    • Gatsu

      Yeah PS4 should have 1TB, 500 fills up pretty fast when some games take 50-60gb.

      • solideater

        Well they are going to announce 1TB PS4 at e3 it has been rumored. But they should had released it from the start or at least give us the option for external hard drives like X-One.

  • Gatsu

    That is so awesome to have and great that they listened to fans requesting this outside Asia. If I wouldn’t have PS4 this would definitely be mine. Had to make my own TPP PS4 with some skins bought, I love how it looks now although took a while to add them correctly.

  • ObsessedGeorge

    Damn, l was hoping that this wasn’t the game’s final cover… It looks a bit strange to me.
    Ground Zeroes had a realistic Snake model in the cover while Snake’s model in TPP’s cover looks like clay to me.

    • Gatsu

      I like it a lot for some reason and think it’s cool :). Although at first I was expecting Big Boss to look towards us similar as in GZ cover so could see eyepatch/horn more clearly.

      • ObsessedGeorge

        Even if we got the Snake and Ocelot cover with the desert gear, it would be a lot better.

        • Gatsu

          I was thinking it would be that before the cover was revealed, but I’m okey with this too :).

    • JoJo

      I’m with you actually. Always hated this picture, not sure why. I was pretty upset to learn that it was the official cover.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Well we all know that if it isn’t Shinkawa art on the cover it is a disappointing cover.

    • so true, i’m not really a fan of the lack of shinkawa, but well, you can always print your own cover right? that’s what i made with all my PS3 games (and some from NGC too) and boy they look way better than the originals

    • hunner

      I would of preferred shinkawa or the pitcure with snake and ocelot

    • Alex

      You’re just seeing more the humanity of the guy; its lit much more and you only see the good side, not the horn or eyepatch, giving it that human touch. GZ cover was just him battered. This cover with all the scars, shows the weight of his life experience.

  • Maik O’Bannon

    That’s great news!
    I’ve been waiting for TPP to buy a ps4 ,now I’m gonna get them together…yipeee!!!!
    Hope they won’t sell it too much overpriced though.

  • Metal Gear Arabic

    + Middle east

    • Shalashaska

      Oh god.. Now I wish I could buy this :'(

      • cardboardbox engineer

        why not?

        • Shalashaska

          i wish i had the cash 🙁

    • Jerry Jose

      Good day, Metal Gear Arabic. Hope this message will find you in good condition. I’m Jerry and I would like to seek your advice on where we could get a unit of this MGSTPP PS4 Bundle in the Middle East, particularly in Abu Dhabi? If there are shops that is going to sell this units on the release of the game in September, 2015. Your advice would be of great help for a humble MGS fan. Thank you very much.

  • …but I was going to buy a new PC, why are you doing this to me

  • umbralex

    No north & south America ??? damn :´( …

    • No Place For Hayter

      They don’t like us.

  • RanFujimiya

    I already ordered a japanese one………… now I have to get a second one here in Germany. WELL THEN.

  • Tong Ninja

    Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain confirmed to be at E3 this year!!! 😀 😀
    http://www.gamespot.com/articles/confirmed-games-at-e3-2015/1100-6427907/

    • Gatsu

      Now we just need to know, that what day will they show us TPP trailer/gameplay XD. I’m guessing on Tuesday. Kojima hasn’t tweeted anything of it, but lets hope he goes there.

      • Batzi

        Keep an eye on those airport plane pictures!

        • Gatsu

          Yes sir 🙂 !

      • Tong Ninja

        They will reveal the schedule soon! 🙂

    • umbralex

      i’m worried about a big spoiler at E3 :S , but i can’t resist to watch a new trailer XD

      • Tong Ninja

        I love Hideo Kojima’s trailers! 😀 haha

    • WhatTheJuicay

      I hope itll just be MGO they’ll be showing. That’s around the time where the press are allowed to talk about it, right?

      • Tong Ninja

        Yes, they should be talking about MGO next week. I just want one more story/gameplay trailer! 😀

    • MichaelPayneV

      Now imagine a New Trailer recreating this classic scene, Replacing T-800 with Snake, having him sit at a Bar where Kyle Reese stays, then having Skull Face enter the Bar, have Quiet Replace Sarah place, and just when Skull Face is about to kill Quiet, Snake to shoot Skull Face, and then have a 10 min Boss Fight Demo!

  • Landon Weber

    I imagine they are announcing the North American bundle during E3 – it would be weird to release it everywhere but the US. I hope so anyway! It would be nice to grab this without paying the ridiculous import prices.

    I wonder if that box art will be used for the lithograph that comes with the collector’s edition strategy guide – it looks similar to the MGS4 litho. http://www.metalgearinformer.com/?p=19894#comment-63430

  • ObsessedGeorge

    Off topic: Previews are up! 🙂

  • PrinceHeir

    Lucky!!!!!!!

    The cover box looks badass!!

  • PrinceHeir
    • VIC BOSS

      IMO the best game on ps4 for current moment

    • Gatsu

      That’s superb, but it deserve more sales!

    • ObsessedGeorge

      My game has a total playing time bug. It says that l played for 5 days and 4 hours, when clearly, l haven’t played for more than 35 hours. Last night l played for 3 hours, and it added 2 days in my total playing time. That is stupid, cause in games like these, l like to know how much time l have invested.

      • PrinceHeir

        I think their still doing some patches.

        I’m sure it’ll fix in a patch or two.

      • Gatsu

        I haven’t even checked how much I have played lol, but need to see it tomorrow because I’m interested about the amount. I hope I can finish it in 80 days haha, when don’t have time to play every day :P.

      • Jak

        Isn’t that just how much in game time has passed?

    • MichaelPayneV

      That’s good, i’m happy when good games sell, just like for movies!

    • Time for celebration!!!

    • invader_skoodge

      Would have been my game of the year if not for Roach. LOL That dumb horse made me lose a race stopping ten feet away from the finish line.

      • Jak

        I won a race because the other rider didn’t even move from the starting line.

        Tbqh beyond his controls bugging out once, it’s nearly impossible to fail any of them-whenever I run out of stamina I just block the other rider and the AI can’t really get by.

      • Mini gear

        How to win races: when most stamina is gone go med speed while blocking everyone’s way 😀

        • invader_skoodge

          Well damn. Now I know. Roach is still a ding dong.

  • … next stop, America!!! All Aboard !!!…

  • Jack Raiden

    Does anyone know when we can preorder it? Especially in Germany?

  • nice! it would have been a mistake not releasing this on other countries, i guess it will be released everywhere since they added these regions, maybe it will be announced for America on E3 or maybe they just want to build hype so they can release it and everybody gets crazy and buy them fast.

  • No Place For Hayter

    I’m going to go cry in a corner since I already have a PS4, lol, but boy are those who haven’t gotten into this generation yet are in for a big opportunity, a MGS is always more than enough reason to get a console 🙂

    • hehe, that’s me! i always hoped they would release something like this and that’s why i didn’t bought a PS4 until now

  • ObsessedGeorge

    I think Destructoid’s preview is the best and most interesting reads out of every other site. He said he saw Quiet sunbathing topless! Hell yeah! 😀
    http://www.destructoid.com/sneak-king-14-hours-of-metal-gear-solid-v-the-phantom-pain-293558.phtml

    • Golgari

      Sunbathing topless Quiet? Really?

      I WANT TO SNEAK DAT SHIT BRO! S Rank!

      • No Place For Hayter

        Players no longer need to see Snake be a flirty perv, instead they themselves can be. I’m ok with this, lol.

        • Mr.Pony

          Side op 151: Gather “intel” on quiet while on Mother Base

          “Boss we need pictures that “expose” who she really is! He’s she an ally or a friend? Also send the VI’s to my idroid…”

          • No Place For Hayter

            Lol. Now lets all take a moment to remember the Date missions in peace walker……. Or lets not, I’d really rather not, lol.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Snake: Kaz, it appears that she has no…Snake, but a beautiful V, huh, it reminds oe of my Cardboard Box…wait, huh??!
            Quiet: Hmmhmmhmhm!
            Snake: Ocelot, translate that for me!
            Ocelot: O.K. Boss…looks like she said “V has come to…eat the Big Boss? Snake, answer me! Snake! SNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE!

        • Alex

          The silence makes more sense now.
          Giggity

    • Gatsu

      Yes that was great preview lol :).

    • MichaelPayneV

      Well I guess we will know in the first minute whether she is Chico or not! :))))

    • Jak

      Doesn’t say topless, just sunbathing.

      Think you’re projecting a wee bit much :p

      • ObsessedGeorge

        She just sat in the cell, face down, top undone (got to watch those tan lines).

    • Shalashaska

      YES! My day was horrible and then you came in with that news and MADE MY DAMN DAY.

      Wat

  • DDADDB .

    Ok so all I need to know is.
    1. Whens it out for pre-order?
    2. Who (in the UK) will be selling it?
    3. How muc….Who am I kidding I don’t care how much just GIMMIE GIMME GIMME!!! 🙂

  • Javier

    Hi, I was reading something about the recent gameplay sesion of tpp.

    The game starts in the moment snake wakes up of the coma. So I don’t know when are we going to see the previous scenes. Maybe the real game is different.

    After rescuing dd, every time we go to mother base we are going to see it growing up.

    Before recruiting quiet there is a fight against her, better than the end’s fight.

    And finally, the game is 90% gameplay and 10% cutscene. The “most playable” metal gear ever.

    • invader_skoodge

      You know what I’m beginning to think? If it’s not a flashback from Miller who was conscious through that whole thing;That scene, might have been made specifically for the trailer. I’ve seen a few scenes in movies and games that don’t make it to the final product before. But I’m hoping we get to see it.

      This trailer comes to mind.

      • invader_skoodge

        Oh and I know a lot of these set pieces didn’t make it to the final product either.

        • solid snake

          do you know the name of the music playing in the beginning? (when snake lands)

          • invader_skoodge

            Here you go

          • solid snake

            thank you so much!!

        • MichaelPayneV

          “What is this, another Grand Theft Auto?
          This ain’t not Vide City!” LOL-ed sooooo hard!

      • Javier

        I want to put tpp for the first time in my console and start it right after paz bomb.

        • invader_skoodge

          Yup. I didn’t like where Ground Zeroes ended. For me a perfect ending would have been all the way up to the coma. So we got to see the crash, how they made it out and the Hospital scene.

          • Jak

            Nah. Would’ve actually made the most sense to end with him going -into- coma. Then the gap in real time helps emphasise the length of the coma.

        • No Place For Hayter

          Now now, they can’t keep secrets and surprises if they tell you everything from the beginning 😉

  • MichaelPayneV

    LOL

    • john

      Yeeeeeeeesss the hype train is real!!

  • invader_skoodge

    500GB?? No Thank You!!!! Sony should also realize that here in the West we also like stylized box art. I’m tired of getting ugly CGI box covers when the rest of the world get cool artsy ones.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Agreed, this cannot be said enough.

      It also annoys me when it is changed for stupid reasons, like for GZ when we lost Kaz on the cover because PW didn’t sell as well as it did in Japan, like that has anything to do with GZ you are trying to sell. Like seriously removing Kaz does nothing, do they think seeing a character they don’t know on the cover means the game is bad somehow? they are having the same approach with TPP by having only Big Boss on the cover, like seriously how stupid and programmable do they think we are? they think we are so attached that it is bad to put new faces on the cover of NEW games, it makes no sense to me.

      • Boldizar

        Are you ever unfortunate enough to watch broadcast television? Every single ass fuck commercial treats the viewer like they are a damn moron. Either it works or companies figure eventually it will condition people to be stupid enough to fall for the bullshit.

        • PsychoMantis18

          Sadly, I think the latter is the most popular tactic

    • Boldizar

      I remember how mad I was at the MGS4 box art, though in this specific case Shinkawa’s illustrations were toned down for the game release demos and such in general. For some reason someone thought 3D renders were the bomb.

  • kirtanloorii

    What am I supposed to do if I already bought a PS4 nearly 2 years ago?

    • No Place For Hayter

      Cry……. Like me.

  • Marxal

    Just put my deposit down for the pre-order. Didn’t even look at the price. Didn’t have to. Already have a PS4. I just needed it. Was 689NZD btw.

  • Mini gear

    i i neeeed it, im dyin here,

  • Mini gear

    @Nyxus or anyone know should i get this from pal offer or do you think a US one is also coming? im dying over this, also is it possible to completly transfer everything from my old ps4 to this one?

    • No Place For Hayter

      Ugh, *grunt*, *shrug* time to wait and see. Seems very odd.

    • Ravenous

      That seems highly unlikely for a game of this kind, and the only resource mentioned anywhere on screen is GMP, which is increased by completing missions, outer ops and finding raw materials and diamonds…why would there be an additional resource, but not visible on screen?

      But then again, Konami going for as much mobile as possible, and their income being largely based on pachinko-machines and gambling, we’ll just have to wait and see Oo

      Also seems very weird that only one of the dozens of people attending the preview-event would mention anything of that kind of crap being built into the game, every time micro-transactions are built into a game everyone throws a fit over it, so why only that single person?

      • MichaelPayneV

        Maybe this “only person” had the balls to break the enbargo, and be with us as real as possible, to warn us!

        • Ravenous

          I suppose it could be possible, but I really don’t see many people buying into that crap, “finish this mission now, pay 50 cents” just doesn’t seem to belong anywhere but crappy mobile “strategy”-games XD

          Also, the article has been removed from the website and the guy who wrote it apparently said specificly that this along with character customization for TPP (NOT MGO) was an option in the hospital-scene but was a “cencored option” since they all played with default-snake…
          Sounds like wishful thinking to me, if Kojima wanted us to have a big surprise in being able to customize Big Boss for TPP, why on earth wouldn’t they just remove the option from the UI? XD

          And of all the pics released, why does no pic anywhere mention any other cost than GMP, and in that case, where did the idea of micro-transactions come from?
          A PSN-login request is where it came from, and that’s hardly evidence of anything other than the game being played on playstations.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Which is what he said, that is no confirmation, but enough to get worried about it!

    • MichaelPayneV

      It better not be!

    • Shalashaska

      I WILL FREAKING GET REALLY ANGRY IF THEY DO ANY CRAP LIKE THIS. DAMN YOU KONAMI. If this game is going to resort to shit tactics like this, Im going to wait for its price to drop. No point wasting a full 60 dollars on games that just want to earn more. SCREW YOU KONAMI.

      • MichaelPayneV

        YESSS, finally someone on here who is not a Fan-Boy, who calls Konami on their BS!

        Sir, first you had my tolerance, now you have my respect!

        • Shalashaska

          This is Serious Bullshit. I think I’ll wait now. I HATE micro Transactions and even more, the people who idiotically pay for them. I play on a console. If i wanted to play a pay to win game, i’d use my android. First it was parts of the game being cut off for “Dlc” .. then some games cut off DIFFICULTY levels in game for “DLC” .. Now this?
          MKx Had micro transactions.. why… why does a damn MK game have the need to use MICRO DAMN TRANSACTIONS

          • No Place For Hayter

            Preach that truth, I never buy DLC, the only way I ever get any DLC is if it already comes with the game, like GOTY or pre-order bonus.

          • Shalashaska

            Same here. No dlc buying. Goty or nothing.

        • No Place For Hayter

          It would not be a pretty day in these comment sections when such a thing is confirmed, even though the micro-transactions themselves might only be to save time (that is they are even in the game) I would still flip my shit if such a thing was real, lol.

          I think you have been spending too much time in some crappy places to have not have seen someone who calls bullshit on Konami, stick around here more man, any of us will give Konami the kicking they deserve any day 🙂

        • Mini gear

          Konami is garbage trying to taint good games now, I don’t like em one bit

      • Ravenous

        I really don’t think this is true in any way, just think about it, micro-transactions for what, finishing outer ops-missions faster? Buying more GMP? Buying access to weapons and equipment?
        Does any of this sound like it belongs in ‘Kojima’s masterpiece to bring the MGS-saga to a close’?

        And if there are micro-transactions, who on earth would actually use them other than impatient kids who’d probably not apreciate the game anyways?

        This idea came from a guy who posted on a Portugese(spelling?) or Brazillian website, got translated by somebody on Reddit AFTER the original posts where taken down, and then added on by random people on reddit, and the claims made (micro-transactions and character customization for TPP) sounds more like somebody having a piss rather than something official IMHO

        • Shalashaska

          Yea but there is A REASON Kojima is leaving. Maybe Konami FORCED this and thats why they had a falling out.

          Us gamers better hope its not. These idiot casual gamers are ruining every type of game possible.

          • Ravenous

            I suppose that could be true, hope not, and only time will tell…
            I’m choosing to stay cautiously optimistic, eventhoug I’m usually very pessimistic about most things, and if Konami has forced this BS on the game, they would probably try to advertize that fact at E3, so we’ll see

          • Shalashaska

            Yea lets hope there is no stupid transactions. Im going explode if there are any. I dont think anybody knew MKX had micro transactions until like a month or something before the game released.

          • Ravenous

            I didn’t follow the development of MKX, and didn’t know it had micro-transactions before you told me, but really, not more than a month before release? That’s kinda sick Oo

          • Shalashaska

            Im not sure when it was as i didnt follow it myself.. i came to know the day mk release that there were micro transactions and then later found out that it had been rumored a few weeks prior to release.

          • No Place For Hayter

            I think that’s one of the things that annoys me the most, is that there are actually people out there that buy that crap.

          • Shalashaska

            oh just look a little down and there is proof of almost every big game doing it. is this what gaming has come to ? Seriously ?

          • No Place For Hayter

            And with that thought I go to bed, lol.

            And gaming really needs to crash, but the only problem with that is the only people that could bring it back after the crash are to stupid to even see why it happened in the first place and would assume the market is dead and walk away forever.

          • Shalashaska

            Right now.. despite i love gaming. I hope it does so that these damn tactics stop. But come on.. we know this will only get worse :/

    This game and my xbox maybe going to help me get over the love of my life that i had been going out with for 5 years. So BRING IT KOJIMA! QUICKLY!!! I NEED IT! QUICK QUICK QUICK! Man I wish I had a phantom Cigar. Or just a Cigar, that would work too, i guess 😛 Smoke my days to September 1st

    • MichaelPayneV

      O.K. now i know i won’t buy it day 1!

      • solideater

        The Desperation from Konami is Evident. They Know its the last game which would have any proper sale ….

    • Mini gear

      Nooooooooooooooooooooooo! ;-;7

    • The Reaver

      Couldn’t it just be like hats and outfits and stuff for MGO?

      • MichaelPayneV

        MGO3/E is a separate Game, so NO!

      • Shalashaska

        even still you want to be paying extra for stuff thats already on disc? whatever happened to full games…

    • Gatsu

      I don’t like them, but still sometimes buy some stuff, very rarely though. But no one is also forcing to buy them. “Optional”.

      I hate when game industry these days include so much micro transactions.

    • Shalashaska

      thats it. i dont care whether its f***ing cosmetic or what.. im not paying 60$ for this bullshit. i’ll wait a month.

      Now this is proof that konami will never make a good MG game.

    Heard the Rumor that MGS V has Optional Micro-transactions, Noooo…..

  • Old Liquid

    Out of all the previews I’ve read, EGM seems to be the most critical with their experience on MGSV: TPP

    http://www.egmnow.com/platforms/xbox_360/party-chat-egm-unravels-the-enigma-of-the-phantom-pain-and-goes-hands-on-with-metal-gear-solid-v/#

    They were critical of almost everything.

    – Starting from how “taboo” (mainly the sexual assault) was poorly handled in Ground Zeroes, then questioned if that tone will fit with the “humor” that TPP seemed to impose & questioning the ratio between gritty and humor.

    – How the “structure” in TPP felt off, and some of the missions felt like glorified fetch-missions

    – How fultoning sheep looked “inexplicably dumb” (based off screenshots from one guy that didn’t play it lol).

    – One reviewer telling their collegue that didn’t get to play the hospital scene, that they didn’t “miss much”, basically labeling it a “New-gen crawling simulator.”

    – Critical of Kiefer’s lack of lines & his actual performance when it’s there.

    – How the setting (Afghan portion) felt disconcerting for a Metal Gear game.

    – How after playing The Witcher 3, having doubts that the “openness” in MGSV will be impressive.

    – Having worries of “MGSV’s less-focused open-world style and some of the other decisions.” (the same person said they started to think that the move to open-world game design was the wrong one here.)

    The only thing that seemed unanimous, was them expressing how the game play itself is very fun, however one of them also stated that he felt like he was being punished for trying to take advantage of that openness at times.
    Now, granted it was a party chat thing, so a lot of conflicting opinions, optimisms, pessimism, and skepticism are sprinkled within that article, but IMO it’s a shame that they had to be the bad batch of the apple with expressing more unfavorable insight than good (or at least, that’s how I read it). Despite it all, they said it got better for them as it progressed, and all of them still stated they’re still very keen to see the final product

    • Tong Ninja

      Meh, it’s only their initial impressions so far. When they play the whole game though, it will be amazing. Vast majority of journalists said it was a fantastic game so far. 🙂

    • MichaelPayneV

      Hmmm, no, is actually great that people who usually hate MGS, that they like MGSV’s Gameplay.

      Also MGS is not a perfect series, it has its fair share of flaws, but the great parts are good enough to compensate!

    • Gatsu

      Should go play other games then :C. How can you be critical of so many things with TPP I mean come on.

      “You weren’t missing much—trust me. New-gen crawling simulator.”

      LOL, what?? Weren’t missing much yeah… Well to me that hospital scene looks freakin awesome :).

      The fultoning is made funny for a reason and how open does a game need to be, to be impressive :P? Kojima is doing something different again with his last game, so of course some things will feel strange. He knows what he’s doing with TPP.

  • Mini gear

    I hope the themes music is not you’re kind of people, I also hope the theme and controller are sold separate in case I i can’t get another ps4 by then :/

  • MichaelPayneV

    Tings that should have been in THE MAIN GAME, on the Disk!

  • H’m

    Hello mgs fans… im sorry its abit of subject but seeing its not up here yet, anyway it looks like konami has done it again..

    http://www.tmag.it/2015/06/10/metal-gear-solid-v-the-phantom-pain-has-microtransactions/

    • MichaelPayneV

      Her’s to you Konami, from our community!

    • Ravenous

      Uhm..to my ears ‘optinal ingame-purchases’ sound more like DLC, which I believe was already known to be arriving after launch?

      Could be micro-transactions, and if they are, I hope they don’t go competing with EA for the title of Greediest Bastards in the game-industry Oo

      • MichaelPayneV

        You wrote Ubisoft wrong!

  • Mini gear

    I don’t really like how silent Kojima made BB in TPP, sure it’s fine to be silent but from what I heard the man barley even speaks which I was found of before

    • solideater

      Cost of Using Keifer Perhaps… I really hope at the end there is interaction of Big Boss with Solid Snake i.e. New Voice Actor Vs Old Voice Actor 😉

      • Ravenous

        I don’t think the cost of hiring Kiefer is the reason, my impressions was that Kojima wants us to see Big Boss as an extension of ourselves rather than a character in the game…I think…
        And Kojima has mentioned Mad Max 2 as an inspiration for a more or less silent main character. I also remember from the KindaFunnyGames preview thingy that briefing files for every mission and alot of the cassettes have lots and lots of Kiefer in them, so Big Boss will just just be silent-ish during gameplay

        • MichaelPayneV

          Is all about execution, if is Max Rockatansky Silent and not Aiden Pearce boing silent, is going to be good.

          Don’t forget that they guy just woke up from a 9 years old Coma with something in his brain!

          • solideater

            Well I cannot foresee BB as an extension of ourselves as the character mythos has already been established in previous games. I have only seen this working in RPG’s where you define your character.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well if you think about, BB has always felt like an extension of us, like we could be him, and this was reflected best in MGS3 when i basically felt as if i was Naked Snake, it has gone as i far as feeling his feeling, i laughed when he laughed and cried when he cried.

            The same for Max Rockatansky, he is not an Action Hero, anyone of us could end up like Max, so if is applied the same way here, i don’t see the problem

            1 more thing, if the intention is to make us feel like we are Snake, that doesn’t mean that we will have never been done right till now, so i understand where are you coming from, but don’t forget that this is Kojima, he knows how to do a Silent Character, especially considering that he compared Snake to Max Rockatansky in “Road Warrior”, and don’t forget, this guy is 70% made out of Movies, as said by Hideo himself!

          • solideater

            Now I really need to see Mad Max Series 🙂

          • Gatsu

            You should! Mad Max 1 and 2 are amazing movies, 3 is great too but a little different. Had to watch them again few weeks ago :).

            The recent 4th movie MM:Fury Road is the best imo.

          • stagueda

            Yeah they are all very good, to me the best are Mad Max 2, 4, 1 and 3 in that order, just a personal list though

          • MichaelPayneV

            Yeah, all tough Mel Gibson is the superior Max,Fury Road is a much better Movie, so for me they are Road Warrior=Fury Road

          • stagueda

            I’m feeling the same, Mel is a better max also because he is original and we put him as a standard, the thing with classics is always that problem, like Robocop, although the new one is… nah…

          • MichaelPayneV

            And same with Hayter as Snake, we let nostalgia influence our opinions!

          • stagueda

            Good point, although i really liked Keifer as Snake, it gives me a more reallistic feel to it, at least to me

          • MichaelPayneV

            Exactly, we let nostalgia blind us!

          • MichaelPayneV

            See 1 and 2, 3 if you won’t let it change your opinion on the series, then watch the Best one, Fury Road with Tom Hardy!

      • It has nothing to do with Kiefer, this decision was made before they even decided on the actor.

        • Old Liquid

          Lol I keep saying this over and over, and even link them to the source of KojiStation, but they still don’t listen and purposely keep spewing the same lies, even afterwards, as if they’ve lost a grip on reality due to extreme bitterness (not talking about solideater here, just talking about others from my own experience)

      • Tong Ninja

        I believe the script/dialogue was written before they hire the actors. This applies to movies and tv shows as well. 🙂
        Yes I hope for Solid Snake vs Big Boss as well.

    • Gatsu

      I don’t really mind it.

      Also as one of the previews said, was it gamespot or some other is what I think of it:

      I like to think that Big Boss has been through so much painful stuff in his life that he’s just not in the most talkative mood. After watching your MSF getting destroyed, ending up in 9 year coma, losing limb, deprived of everything and left for dead. Just to find yourself wake up in a nightmarish hospital scene with psychological damage and horn stuck in your head (which might be a part of his silent behavior). So if he would start chatting all the time like David Hayter’s Snake, well it would be sort of weird IMO. If I put myself in BB shoes in TPP, I might not be so talkative either.

      I’m sure BB will talk during the important cutscenes etc. And Kojima said his inspiration is Mad Max, a badass man of few words. Kiefer will talk in the cassette tapes quite a lot, from what I understood.

      Also hasn’t Big Boss always been kinda silent, especially outside codec calls. I mean not like TPP silent but still? He always listens a lot of others talking but don’t talk super much himself. Well anyway, we will see how everyone likes it in 82 days ;). Also remember, the preview players only played for 2 days and in Afghanistan. Who knows how long the game really is and how much Kiefer actually gets to talk.

    • Tong Ninja

      Some of the journalists said Big Boss talks in the cassette tapes which will replace the codec conversations. Big Boss lost 9 years of his life and his comrades, I wouldn’t be too talkative either. haha

    • Gatsu

      OH MY GOD YES <(^O^<) (>^O^)> I’ve been waiting for it ! Thanks for the info Batzi!!!

      • Mini gear

        Hyyyyyyype is back! ^^^____^^^^ woooo! YEYEYSYDYEYSYEYESYESYES

        • Gatsu

          Hype never went away ;D!

    • solideater

      Well the Wait For Sep 1 would become more agonizing after the trailer 🙁

      • Gatsu

        At least something new to look at XD, honestly I have watched the trailers almost every day since announced lol. Okey well, not anymore when been kinda busy :(…I feel ashamed of not watching them yesterday.

        • solideater

          lol.. Gatsu by now you would be able to quote all the lines without seeing the trailers 🙂

          • MichaelPayneV

            I am already.

    • MichaelPayneV

      Considering how much TPP feels like The Termiantor and Mad Max, and how now is the 80’s Hype, it would be Awesome if the Trailer would basically be a Tribute to this iconic scene from The Terminator!
      Imagine Venom entering a club like this, and having him break the hand of the bouncer in a similar way Arnold did here, and maybe even reveal a returning female character (*Cough EVA *Cough)

    • Gatsu

      I’m excited to find out what song Kojima-san has decided for it. Thanks to him I found some amazing songs to listen to. 🙂

      • MichaelPayneV

        Correct me if i’m wrong, but this one would fit perfect with the 80’s Hype!

        https://youtu.be/r_GH6M7cUq4

        • Gatsu

          Yeah not bad choice :D, btw I can’t wait for listening to that or A-ha Take On Me in TPP lol 🙂 !

          Maybe the trailer song is this, featuring Jack/BB… and Diane/Quiet :O?

          Ok maybe it might not fit so well for trailer, lol but Kojima make it work.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Nah, just kidding, THIS would be PERFECT for the 80’s Hype and fit The Phantom pain themes as a whole!

      • stagueda
