See the Metal Gear Pachislot in action

Some new videos have been released by several Japanese Youtube channels, in which you can see lengthy off screen playthroughs of the Metal Gear Pachislot machine. The commentary is in Japanese but you can still see what’s going on.

Update: Official video by KPE:

  • Honestly, it’s painful to watch. There are some new scenes.
    Everything is CGI and not FOX. This machine of pain and suffering proves it. Not enough lighting in some gameplay scenes… Gameplay scenes………. Whatever…

    • Not even Gray Fox or Raiden can handle this much pain.

      What kills me the most is the old Koji-Pro logo on top of all this sh.t. That’s intellectually Hideo’s signature, not theirs. Some may I think I get paranoiac again, but the way they brand “pachislot” on top make me feels like : “look, this is pachislot, not AAA, see ?? Hideo’s fanbase ? pachislot”… I don’t know if this is provocation, but I believe they can behave imbecile enough to produce a remake just to make their point. I mean do you guys ever saw a f.ckn jackpot with so much packaging, or is it me having hallucinations ? xD
      The duel with Ocelot… Ha, they are also copying the codec, too ?… Guys I start to believe it would be easier for them to craft a real game instead of annoying everybody with this piece of …. :DD

        If you want to feel really sad, consider that they’ll probably make more money from this pachislot machine than they did from the original game.

          Right, pathetic, and won’t create as much fun among players, neither. It may also financially destroy some lives too, which is even more sad considering that it is in the name of Snake Eater..

    Edit: I find that Konami has long passed the point of absurdity for me, I simply find crap like this very entertaining, lol. It helps a lot knowing Kojima is no longer attached to this shit show the franchise has turned into, now I can sit back and laugh, and watch it all burn, lol.

    (Just gonna sneak back in here and pretend like I wasn’t gone for 5 months, lol) Ironically it is one of the busiest times of the year for me.

      I've been well thanks. Hope everything's good with you too :D.

      • No Place For Hayter

        Everything’s been great for me, too many games to play, and too much work to do, lol.

    • Janeo

      I don’t see why people are bothered by this, it doesn’t effect the games in any way and I’m sure a lot of people will have fun with these machines and it’s not like any of us ever have to touch them. I am just looking forward to konamis next metal gear, kojimas new games doesn’t interest me at this point so hopefully konami have something planned, I really don’t know why they aren’t doing rising 2 yet.

      I haven’t been on this site a while either at least not to comment, I might take a look at an article every now and then but I never comment, just have too many things going on right now to worry about games too much. I’m moving to China to be with my girlfriend and I’m focused on getting everything ready for that but it just surprises me how angry people are about this slot machine.

      • No Place For Hayter

        I cared about Kojima, not the brand of MGS, so that’s why for me.

        I’m pretty sure it makes people angry because they love the MGS franchise, and to see what they love be taken and turned into crap like these pachinko machines hurts for them. Even if you don’t share the same love for the franchise as they do, is isn’t hard to understand why they hate crap like this. It is more about the franchise as a whole and it’s use and branding and not specifically about the next main game in the series. (Though lets be honest, with things like this representing Konami’s care for the series, anyone should be worried about the quality of the next main game, with this they care about the name making money not the quality of the product)

        It’s like seeing a good friend turn into a literal whore, they get used for whatever in order to make some more money for the pimp. It is about soul, Konami doesn’t care about MGS, it only cares about how much money it can make off the name, hence we get pachinko machines with MGS slapped on them, the lack of care or thought for the franchise and only the care for money that makes people angry.

        • Janeo

          I love the series just as much as anyone on this site and I have faith konami will make a great metal gear game, yeah they care about money but they should and that’s only the business side of konami, the people who are the ones actually making the game surely care about the series. If the creators of the next game love the series then I’m sure we will have another good metal gear and if konami want to make some more money off the series then I’m fine with them bringing out a pachinko machine. Seems like it’s different for most fans but it really doesn’t bother me, the machines won’t change what the series is.

          • No Place For Hayter

            True. Just saying a lot of people see the whole thing as a whole, where as you see it piece meal, so one bad thing does not represent the whole. And that not many people share your faith, lol.

            Oh, and I didn’t mean to come across like you loved the series less then others (after all we are here in MGI, lol) I meant the different ways people treat something they like as apposed to how much they like it.

          • Janeo

            I guess everyone has different ways of seeing things but I’m usually the type who doesn’t get too upset about something like this, if the next game turns out to be bad then I wouldn’t be happy about that but stuff like this won’t get to me as much as others. I’m a wrestling fan and if you like wrestling then you probably know how much people complain, go into any comment section about WWE and most of the comments will be complaints but I just enjoy it for what it is so it’s the same type of thing with this machine. I don’t think anyone is wrong to be angry but there are just a few different ways to see things.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah, it takes all kinds to make the world go round, lol 🙂

          • Lastation 4

            I agree with Janeo! Im reading here since the beginning and posted almost nothing xD

            How can u say not many do u know how many? Im not liking the Pachinko vids, neither i I dislike them… KPE has nothing to do with Konami Digital Entertainment! Its for Japanese audience only a simple gambling machine. Never heard that Star Wars, Batman, SImpsons fans complained about a gambling machine of their favourite franchise. If u dont like it, dont play it? If u like the visuals cool, but its for japanese audience only.

            I also dont get this whole Konami hate. There is probably one guy that is a idiot and only cares for money. There working hundreds of people now and back then, to create games like MGS. The games are fantastic, because of Hideo Kojima, but everyone else did their job aswell. Its not like that a programmer can say, ohh they fired Mr. Kojima, im going with him. At the end he might be workless… I dont know why people want Konami to die, just because theyre not as cool as they were. For me thats just childish behaviour, like Konami!

            Kojima is free from the burden Metal Gear Solid. He always wanted to create something different aswell. Many people didnt like MGS V in general, so this could be good for both sides? Konami isnt much about gaming anymore, but they already were, even with Mr. Kojima. There isnt much left, just Yu-Gi-Oh, PES and off course Metal Gear. Its up to Konami to create a great game. But im probably to old for all this fuckonami thingy =/

        I believe this specific slot machine serve as a scapegoat, always reminding to old Konami lovers that they shifted toward another market sector than the one that attracted them first. A useless sector to them, just like if they lost one of their favorite toys.

        When I visited Japan 13 years ago, I saw one of those Konami sports facilities and at this time, I was wondering “wow, must be awesome to do some sport with Konami simulations…”.

        Back to V’s waiting last year, it had been some time I did not really checked what they were doing. Then everybody started to say, “yeah, they are destroying Metal Gear like they did with all our favorite franchises…”, here and there” and then SH was cancelled, Nikkei report, Kojima fired, Koji-Pro dismantled…
        I started to check everywhere, even defending them, because I could not believe it / face the truth. And then seeing Geoff last December sorry that Hideo was not allowed to come to TGA was the cherry on the cake seriously.

        So yes, this slot machine symbolize for me, reminds me a lot of negative events and the true end of an era. Some of us are hating it for what it represents, because it always reminds us that Konami decided to shift more than ever from AAA, with a really bitter taste because one of our favorite opuses of the franchise is used on top of it. They could have close the franchise peacefully but in their frenetic rush to shift sectors, they even nuked Koji-Pro in the middle of the production, hence obviously affecting TPP’s development.

        Despite what some may think, we are not that mad at this slot, but at what it represents. For many gamers and developers, MGS was the unique franchise that kept the highest level of integrity, originality, program stability / quality despite all the AAA market recent movements. Seeing all this legacy being used for something as tightfisted as gambling is very disappointing. Such artistic content was not created for that. They could plug whatever cheap candy-crush inside the slot’s system instead, the gamblers would not really care neither, but putting those cut-scenes / efforts feels like a pure waste.

    Holy shit guys, I hope Kojima talks to these guys to use this tech for his game:

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KeNXEjNkEs0

    Not only would this kind of technology tremendously reduce the cost and time it takes to create cutscenes or any CGI really, but it can produce better, more “filmic” CG. It would be a perfectionist’s dream tool – and Kojima is arguably the biggest perfectionist in the industry.

    Ninja Theory has done it again – first they introduce gaming to performance capture, now this. We could end up having live theatre performance’s of Disney animations or Transformers or something now. So much potential.

    • Full Options

      JJ, I am not 100% sure but I think Hideo used a quite “fair” Sony variant of this new tech. From what I saw, they are all using virtual camera assisted percap now. That’s what he used at Sony studio when sampling Norman.

      Siggraph is the mecca of CGI and all they show us is usually the latest techs at their conventions, but Boss’s tweets are even more up to date.
      What’s at the show was prepared for months, but I guess that Hideo tried to tell us he was using this same tech through his tweets (or at least a highly similar one). ;D

      • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

        He is using the same tech? Ohhhhh. HYPE!

        • Full Options

          Can’t be sure at 100% (99% tho) but what’s sure is that in this business, they are all sharing and copying their approaches quite fast, so I bet Mark and Sony left him to play with the latest toys and you can trust them in applying top-notch stuff, aside being also themselves camera and many other sampling device manufacturers, no worries. What’s cool is not much the financial assets that they could possibly allocate to him but more their multi-billion bucks equipments and labs / studios ! ;D

          • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

            What interested me most was the prospect of rendering the completed scene live on set and being able to alter it there and then. I dunno if they changed the VASG tech greatly since Uncharted 4, but the render created from the virtual cam was very preliminary and required a lot of additional work to make it presentable. Imagine being able to use the high quality VASG camera’s and P-cap tech whist seeing the final version of the scene on set. You just go in film the scene and it’s done – no extra modelling, tweaking, set designing.

            I think this is where the innovation lies. I would like to see it being more commonly used with higher quality tech and and team capabilities – let’s keep in mind their team size is 15.

          • Full Options

            It will be awesome. That little chat made me wonder how far they are now in terms freaking tech tricks of such ! ;D

    • It’s not that great tbh. You still need a decent animation programmers to do a much better job with facial animation later which looks right now … ehm.. ok?
      They showed only one person. How about two people performing and how much That will be enough for a PC to handle this? I don’t know man.
      Even the lighting on her is very unnatural.

      Kojima uses VASG studio and he will use Virtual Camera’s which are not just above this, but can actually store Real-time computer graphics and photogrammetry data on a camera, so you actually make a movie out of it. You can also film it any way you want. You can use it outside which is also great. Virtual camera’s was used in Cuaron movie – Gravity which looks insane even today.

      They say that you can add more cameras and stuff. But that is basically what P-cap is. I mean, Naughty Dog has this. They say that it is cheaper… but for who? For them? Probably, it’s their proprietary technology but if you make AAA title you want the best of the best. If you are indie, you don’t use mo-cap at all or use the cheapest alternative anyway.

      Kojima will use Virtual camera’s and VASG studio for this. He is going to be fine and trust me the end result will be so much better and more natural in the end.

      • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

        Fair enough. We’ll see where it leads. Ninja Theory did pioneer performance capture in gaming, so I wouldn’t be suprised if the tech they used was designed to be versatile enough for other studio’s to use.

        I agree that the VASG camera Kojima is using is a lot superior as it costs a lot more, but what separates this one is that it manipulates the data in real time to create a near final render instantaneously. The virtual camera in VASG don’t show a fully completed render – usually it’s just a wireframe or preliminary model just to showcase the scene. Example – Uncharted 4’s VASG virtual camera’s:

        http://www.behindthecinematic.com/images/people/ryan-m-james/4up.png

        The virtual image still requires weeks/months of additional work until it looks presentable and can’t be altered on the spot. Unlike the one in HellBlade which creates a complete render which can be altered live and completed on set in literal minutes.

        I’m not arguing this game will look better than Death Stranding – probably not even close. I’m just saying the quality shown is impressive for something that only took literal minutes to create – cut-scenes usually take many weeks to even months to complete, this is the big distinction. Give this technology to a studio with more money and better capabilities then the sky will be the limit.

        Most of the lack of polish shown (facial animations), lighting and stuff is due to it being developed by 15 people, they said in a dev diary they only have money for one performance capture rig so that’s why there is only one person – I would love to see this used with the VASG studio and Virtual Camera’s Kojima was using which captures much more data, combing them would be godly. Ninja Theory are just using lower quality camera’s, P-Cap suits and tech due to their low budget, switch their tech with the ones in VASG and combine that with the real time rendering, oh…

      • Full Options

        I had the same feeling. The face’s mesh is indeed poorly animated and lit. Let’s suppose they are using a first version dummy mesh/environment as rough references probably just during the sampling process..

        In a perfect world it would be great to yet have the final environments and meshes for the capture process, however all the separate datasets (mesh, animations, travelings, lightmaps, etc…) are heavily bound to each other and require several back-forth stages in order to make all match optimally.

        When Hideo says 1 month he included many of those prestations as well.

        As for if a PC could handle it, it is heavily bound to the quantity of data you need to manipulate at the same time, but a nowadays dedicated PC should have far enough at least for the sampling process which should be quite lightweight, as far as the program(s) used are well written and optimized which is usually the case on embedded / dedicated systems.

        Say you have (64 bits, so 8 bytes double precision floats) 3 floats for the cam pos, 3 for the direction and 3 for its orientation. and let’s imagine 100 (saying something large, but arbitrary on purpose) control points on the actress (each of them with 3 floats for pos and 3 for orientation).
        To give you an idea and with 100 control points, you barely need to be able to write 8 bytes * 609 = around 5Kb per frame, so @60 Hz, 300Kb/sec in the memory->disk (3Mb/sec for 1000 control points, and so on). So the acquisition itself should be fairly manageable by even a not too old PC, I guess.

        • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

          I think it’s just the lighting, and this was just a demo to showcase how quickly they could create a full render – the trailer they released had much better lighting and facial animations:

          • Full Options

            The principal is the recorded data, because the actress has a cost. Once everything is in the box, CG fellows may refine skin influences around bones to make them soft there and hard else where. Other fine-tuning processes certainly apply for every other discipline such as lighting, texture shading, animation paths etc..

          • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

            Yeah, exactly. They tuned/refined up their preliminary data from their initial shooting because it was a trailer. Hence why they said they can produce a “near” full render live on set, it will still need work after the fact, but far less work than the conventional virtual camera + P-cap methods, as the groundswork has been pretty much laid. CG artists just need to brush it up.

          • Full Options

            Yeah, I suppose they are slowly but firmly eliminating one by one the redundant tasks to hopefully reach some day, as close as possible working conditions as the real movie sets.

            I bet VASG approaches / efforts go toward the same results but probably not in the exact same order than Ninja’s. One may get ahead the other in some specific fields and vice-versa. Both are not always sharing all their secret cooking recipes as well.

    • Lex Radu

      Pretty sure Kojima is already in the process of getting his hand on that Camera, considering how much he like to hold a real camera for CG Cutscenes, how much he loves composing shot manually!

      And that Gray Fox dick has the audacity to become super passive-aggressive and condescending towards poor Ken for not breaking whatever legal agreement/NDA he has with Konami by giving him the answer he wanted.

      Some people just don’t know how to read between the lines.

        Yeah, the dude is so freakin available despite the zillions of tweets reaching him, but still we find people to complain. I thought the situation was pretty clear with Konami, but they behave just like : “Hey, Ken give me that, hey Ken, pay me a cigarette”. Absolutely not respect / education. The man is really kind / peace.

    Holy SHIT !!! “Might include missing chapter”. I know it is dangerous to hype for now, but Tech news today is a heavily mainstream one, if I am not mistaken !?

    http://www.technewstoday.com/30722-metal-gear-solid-v-definitive-ex-might-include-missing-chapter/

    • Mr.Pony

      No way this could be real in my opinion. Although if this indeed would be true i would be mad as hell if that missing chapter wasn’t given for free to everyone who owns the game already

      • Full Options

        If it is real, I would find it a bit light as well. If only it could include a real chapter, making here a REAL distinction between a single episode 51 and a former Chapter 3 with more missions. Just like any mission disk extension in fact… We will definitely keep our eyes open on the next official announce of Konami regarding MGS…

        • Mr.Pony

          Again if it was real, i would assume that the Island would a be a full area, smaller than Africa and Afghanistan sure, with probably 3 main missions and a few side mission that would unlock after the main ones, ghost hunting would be so good…

          • Full Options

            Yeah, seeing how they manipulated new maps for MGO, I suppose they could have done some substantial efforts on new environments / missions… At least they had the time for it. We’ll check the out-come anyways. They have an opportunity to at least calm down the community after all this mess. Will they f.ck up as usual ? To be continued…

    • However, we believe that it might in fact contain an extra chapter

      It’s just a rumor and speculation at best.

      • Full Options

        Yeah better not expect anything. The cool thing compared to few days ago, is that guesses are shifting toward the new chapter theory. I am wondering if they worked on some missions during all these months. We’ll stay tuned anyways..

        • There is no point in this at all. Konami won’t spend a penny for MGSV.
          KojiPro is disbanded for Unit-8 or is working on another title or just in a concept stage looking for a new designer, programmers and writers.
          Just forget and move on.

          • Full Options

            For a brand new one, yes but for the current title, I believe most of the tool-chain was left quite ready to use… If they were smart they would have used it, but… Meh…

            But right / correct, we were bullshited a bit too much these past months to grow any hope.

    • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

      That fact that he said “might” suggests he is just making assumptions. I just don’t see how it’s possible.

      • Full Options

        I know ;D, I was just noting that some of them consider now the option (they were all guessing only GZ+TPP+DLCs few days ago..), given the time Konami had since then, in conjunction with the question that whether or not they want to limit damage made so far with the fanbase (that could be a nice occasion). But I am pretty sure they’ll slap our faces as usual. Was just turning the other cheek.. 😀

If not, they can just go back and work hard on their sports games concepts. Can we imagine challenges without pioneers ?

            At least among all those nightmare visions you had regarding the next MGS pa-SHIT-slotS, you spared the original true MG.

      Not dead,but in medically induced coma.

      Remember this tho…as long there are many hardcore fans like myself STANDING on the ed…on this earth,the franchise will never die.

      (figuratively speaking ofc)

      Idk how much the MGS franchise is worth right now,but it would really be the best thing,if Sony bought the rights.
      At least we know they don’t treat their franchises like crap(as far as i know ofc).

      • Full Options

        The perfect dream would be to have Sony to buy the rights (bundled also with FoxEngine) but also to have Hideo keen / motivated about booting another opus.
        I would understand if he is fed up and not motivated anymore but as usual, he would maybe do it just for the fans at the beginning and have progressively fun again while producing it.
        But as some said, he is a guy that likes to take a lot of time to polish a game and given his wishes to naturally produce something different… Talented game dev fans under his super-vision could achieve miracles.

        Ah… if only the good old Koji-Pro team was not dismantled and working all together in improving the FoxEngine through other MGS opuses…
        If only Hideo had his engine instead of loosing tons of precious weeks finding a replacement.
        They took away his franchise but as well his beloved tools. We are all really lucky to have Hideo and Yoji be so close friends. Without this friendship, I guess the soul of Koji-Pro would have been completely destroyed.

    WARNING SPOILERS FOR “VIKINGS” TV SHOW
    Another character from movies/tv shows ive seen some characteristics of Big Boss.
    Ragnar Lothbrok,for those who watched the show i don’t need to say in what way he resembles him.For those who didn’t watch it,i urge you to watch the show before this.
    If you don’t give a damn,you can watch this video.

    In the begging he had an innate desire for conflict for him to have glory (and perhaps later on peace and land of his own).He was tolerant to people who believed in peace such as his Christian friend Athelstan and compassionate and forgiving towards his friends and enemies.But for the sake of his ambition and “greater good” he needed to kill some honorable people.

    Soon thru great sacrifice,he became king,a tittle he took to easily.
    In his own words to a slave woman :” A slave and a king…both bind to serve their own people”.
    Many good things happened,but the bad things outweighed the good and it started to take tool on his body and spirit.
    He had to take a blind eye to many things,many lies to tell and many “innocent” people to kill for the sake of his people.

    And because of all that,especially after his historical siege of Paris he will be judged unfairly,just like Big Boss was.

    Even tho for historical junkies like myself,this TV show is not 100% accurate.But i admire the acting skills of actors in it,especially from the main protagonist one.
    Hope you enjoy the video.(and this music)

I am not against stylized kid material at all, but dunno why I just can’t give a shot for few of them. xD
