Kojima is on the advisory board for The Game Awards once again

Next month, The Game Awards show by Geoff Keighley will return. Like last year, it will be backed by an advisory board of industry professionals, and like last year, Hideo Kojima seems to be among them as well. Which is interesting considering we haven’t heard much of Kojima the past few weeks, at least not regarding this subject.


Kojima is rumored to have left Konami early last month, and earlier reports indicate his contract with the company officially ends in December. So far, nothing has been confirmed by Kojima or Konami (except for the statement that Hideo is ‘on vacation’), but that could change next month.

The Game Awards press release reads:

The Game Awards is backed by an advisory board that includes:

Activision (Eric Hirshberg, CEO), Electronic Arts (Peter Moore, COO), Hideo Kojima, Microsoft Xbox (Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox), Nintendo of America (Reggie Fils-Aime, President), Rockstar Games, Sony Computer Entertainment America (Shawn Layden, CEO), Telltale Games (Steve Allison, SVP Publishing), Ubisoft (Yves Guillemot, CEO), Valve and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (David Haddad, President).

Note that Kojima is the only one in the list who isn’t listed representing a company, only as himself.

During last year’s Game Awards show Hideo Kojima, Kiefer Sutherland and Tom Sekine (head of former Konami LA) appeared on stage to debut the trailer for the new Metal Gear Online. Will we see Kojima make an appearance this time? We’ll see when the show goes live on December 3rd at 6PM PT.

    He still has the “Kojima Productions” logo attached when you roll over the mouse over his pic. Whatever that means.

        NEVER BE GAME OV…. Ah fuck it! I need a beer…

        • ObsessedGeorge

          Never be game ov… the year then… 🙂

      • Maik O’Bannon

        What makes you so sure that there is no chapter 3,nyxus?

        • It just seems unlikely. The game is finished, Kojima Productions has been disbanded and Kojima (and some of the senior staff) seem to have left already.

          • Maik O’Bannon

            That’s true,but what if ch.3 is already developed and just sitting there on some Konami ‘s server?
            Just like the nuclear disarmament event,it could happen even if Kojima retires for good..
            I don’t know,I like this game and I spent about 130 hours on it,but I still want a true epilogue to it..

  • Full Options

    (my pleasure, Nyxus ! 😉
    I hope Kojima will grab some statues !

  • Gatsu

    Give me Silent Hills :D.

    • Daburcor

      100% THIS.

  • MrVux007

    *Off-topic* Fallout 4 is getting great scores,but as expected from the Bugthesda, the game has technical issues on all platforms…with PC being the less affected platform

    IMO these are rly minor issues,that will not affect the overall experiance…but they really need to think about using that 15 year old “Creation Engine”……………..(cough) gamebryo………..its age is showing in some elements…

    • Gatsu

      Yeah mostly really good scores, but the bugs etc lower some scores :). But I know I will definitely enjoy it tomorrow, such minor things don’t bother me and maybe get fixed later.

      Aye maybe they will change the Engine in future, I dunno :).

      • MrVux007

        some of my friends(who got the game early aka “street leak”) plead me to wait for GOTY edition now,which isnt really a stupid idea,if we are to look at the past Bethesda games…
        once you get GOTY edition,fully patched up,you can be atleast be sure that your are getting a “finished/polished” product….
        idk,i didnt have much of an issue with those performance and gameplay bugs in the past Bethesda games (and ive played some of them on a PS3 btw),so ill probably buy the game once i get back home…ahh the dilemma of gaming ^^

      • They should have changed it since Fallout 3…
        The engine they are using is not really great for these open-world games these days. You can’t fix broken AI and terrible animation. The core of the engine is last gen.

      • MrVux007

        and here we go again…i just wanted to looked at Metacritic’s user score for Fallout 4(after ive seen the user score for MGSV :D)
        can you guess the main complaints ?

    • VenomSnake421

      This is a website only for MGS, WTF Fallout has to do with anything MGS?

      • MrVux007

        This website is for MGS news,while the comment section may or may not consist content connected to it…as a long-time site user/reader,ive seen plenty of comments that discussed other things besides MGS,which is completely ok…many of us(moderators and site users) know each other,thru that comment section and we use it as a way of sharing news(for both MGS and other medias besides games)…
        if you dont like those kinds of comments,i suggest you just scroll down …
        have a good one ! 🙂

        • VenomSnake421

          No, there’s a billion articles about Fallout 4, you can comment there, MGI isn’t the only website on the internet.

          • MrVux007

            Sorry mate,if you have problems with me or with anyone else on this site,you can report me via the “flag icon”,if that doesnt help you try to msg moderators from this site.But from what i can see,you are the only one which behaviour/comments are unwelcoming 🙂

          • VenomSnake421

            I can’t find the right option to flag you so you’re good.

          • MrVux007

            I know i am 😉

  • you know, would be awesome if Hideo Kojima could anтounce at least that he made a new studio or thinks about the future project.

    • MrVux007

      yea i would definitely feel better knowing his future plans….

    • Ishmael

      give the man some time…

  • MrVux007

    i looked back into Metacritic-s “user review-s” of MGSV ….this is one of many reasons why i (almost never) look at the user score on metacritic…atleast it made me laugh 😀

    • ‘this game is suck’

      ‘2 of 13 users found this helpful’

    • He just descirbed Witcher 3 there….

    • stocchinet .

      They told me i could be anything, so i became a mad jap monkey

  • Venom_Sina

    Hideo Kojima (Outer Heaven Corporation).

    • Full Options

      Game devs are the one wearing glasses… xD.. RS and Valve must show a face… 😀

    I’m still waiting for a MGSV post-release interview with Kojima where he can talk about the spoilers, what happened with Konami, and what he wanted in the game that didn’t make it.

  • VenomSnake421

    Give us MGSV: Director’s Cut.

  • BurntFM

    I think Kojima already knows what his future holds. He’s been known to think months, even years ahead of time. All I know is that I fully support whatever he does and let’s not forget:

  • MichaelPayneV

    Little Off-Topic: Who else thinks that both Konami and Kojima made a big mistake by not giving Venom THIS suit for killing the infected?

    Actually, there is still hope for THIS to become a DLC suit later, this would be the ONLY Suit DLC i would buy, and you know why? Because unlike the MGS3 suit we saw in Trailer, there is no chance in Outer Heaven that this would have been originally in the Game!


    Come on Konami, Snake has a missing Arm, give us a Chainsaw, a blue shirt and a Boom Stick, is not that hard, pleaaaaaaaaaase, pretty please!
