Konami gives update on nuclear weapon ownership in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

After several months of silence, Konami has today once again provided new data that shows the exact number of nukes owned on each platform. A new community support for the Japanese community, ‘J-San’, is planning to give updates on a ‘regular basis’. Here are the latest numbers:

Today’s update (May 12th)

  • PS4: 2194
  • PS3: 917
  • Xbox One: 152
  • Xbox 360: 315
  • Steam: 8423

For comparison’s sake, here are the numbers from the previous update (September 29th)

  • PS4: 1979
  • PS3: 830
  • Xbox One: 197
  • Xbox 360: 315
  • Steam: 7682

As you can see all nukes number went up, except for Xbox 360 which stayed the same and Xbox One, which actually decreased.

As you will probably know, brining the nuclear weapon count to 0 on either platform will unlock the ‘nuclear disarmament scene’, a hidden cutscene, and possibly something else, but no one really knows for sure. People can steal each other’s nukes from their FOB to help reach the goal. If you own a nuclear weapon, you can also choose to disarm it yourself. For more information on the official requirements for the event, go here.

As always you’ll be able to find the latest numbers in the sidebar as well.

    Good guy Konami strikes back. I think this update strongly indicates that Konami are not going to let Metal Gear franchise die. E3 2017, here we go!

    PS. Sometimes I wonder if Konami are planning to re-announce MG Survive as something bigger and better. With Shinta Nojiri as a director and Shuyo Murata as a head writer. Make it happen, Konami!

    • Mr.Pony

      Wouldn’t count on them making it into something different, at this point they have already set a release window and even showed gameplay. But i wouldn’t be surprised if they improved a lot since the gameplay reveal, reusing the same environments and assets from TPP awarded them a big backlash from fans.

      “I think this update strongly indicates that Konami are not going to let Metal Gear franchise die.”

      You are saying it as if it’s a good thing.

  • Alexandre Saccol

    I hope the community for each platform can achieve nuclear disarmament on itself, I haven’t really watched the disarmament ending in YouTube or anything.

      … And a plat was under 20 sometime a year ago… not sure if it was One or 360..

    This is used to steal nukes, making whatever security you have a joke.

    • Lex Radu

      Not the right way to get rid of them, but the end justifies the means…which is the total opposite to “Peace”

  • Limit Break

    Yeah-yeah-yeah, shitty unfinished “box’o’toys” game with a implemented impossible to fulfill requirements to unlock a “ending”, which doesn’t resolve anything of main story value. Fuck you, Konami, just fuck you, seriously.

    • Take it easy.

      • Limit Break

        How, exactly am I supposed to take it easy ? The game is gabrage, what is there to take easy, dude ? YOU should take it easy and step up to reality – it is trash. Simple as that. End of story.

        • If you say so.

          • Limit Break

            That’s it ? That’s all you have to say ? So, I am basically right and you confirm it. As I thought. You have nothing on my absolute truth.

          • Limit Break

            Do try, I wanna see how low you can fall while not giving a actual argument. The fact you keep doing this gives a more detailed picture of a MGSV fan.

            Cool Nyxus, judging what he posted on VGS, I guess he got our points.
            He looks like positive.

          • Tom Brearley-Smith

            For God’s sake, will you at the very least calm the heck down? MGSV was only a game. You didn’t need to scream about it on here like a bloody lunatic. Yes, the game may not have lived up to YOUR expectations, but that doesn’t mean you can act like a psychopathic toddler!
            As far as MGSV was concerned, at least it didn’t get to the point where an angry fan like yourself would complain to the Federal Trade Commission about it. Not at all like Mass Effect 3.

          • Limit Break

            I already asked those two to forgive me. Excuse me if I made you feel something that wasn’t okay with.

            Nyxus is ruling this website. Just check how much he contributed to the community. Browse his work, all the articles through a decade… and come back to apologize if you really care about the franchise.

          • Limit Break

            Why should I ? Did he make a actual ending to MGSV ? Nope ? Then… what is his actual contribution ? Making a lot of posts ? Oh, wow…

          • Full Options

            Again, all this takes time. If you really appreciate Metal Gear, please take some time to check the babel tower Nyxus is doing, or don’t but just don’t appear to us like you can judge him.. Like please.

          • Limit Break

            From what I am getting the only thing that almighthy “Nyxus” is good for is posting snarky gifs, not actually talking and argumenting with people, so he kinda already destroyed any kind of reason I would’ve had to check any kind of “contribution” he made.
            MGSV is a shit MGS game. Here, got an argument against this statement ? Come, make me realize I am wrong.

          • Full Options

            He is speaking to you with pictures because words are not enough apparently. Just try to behave like someone respecting another one, even if you found your worst enemies here (nah just kidding but don’t act like it)…

          • Limit Break

            …Am not right ? Am not right with MGSV being garbage “box’o’toys” game ? Am not right ? Why is everybody evading answering this simple fucking question ?! What is there to respect if you are unable to accept this one simple truth ?

          • Yes, you are completely right. Satisfied now?

          • Limit Break

            Not until you all demand of Kojima and Konami to actually fricnking END the game ! Also, not like you are actually agreeing to my point of view because you actually belive, now, don’t you ? You just want to get rid of me.

          • Uhm… no, not at all! What makes you think that? Hehe…

          • Limit Break

            Well, your snarky attitude, for one… So… Hehe… See ? I can do it too.

            Ok mate, I am not the perfect person to answer but how come I sense evasion when I am saying nobody on earth never played a that awesome stealth game ever ?

          • Limit Break

            Well, if I understand your question right mostly because it is NOT a “awesome stealth game ever”. Thief and first Spliter Cell games are basically still WAY ahead of MGS in terms of stealth: they demand much more accuracy, light/darkness awareness, enemies are MUCH more intelligent and harder to beat when aware to your presence… So yeah, if you want to tell me MGSV is the “awesomest stealth game ever” then you are wrong. It’s something a pre-schooler would find challenging in terms of stealth. I am sorry, but that IS the truth. The only thing MGS had against all else stealth games was it’s story focus and MGSV this focus is basically lost to filler missions and uneventful grinding… Am I not right ?

          • Full Options

            All righty ! I am wrong. And you are right coz I am not. I am at the opposite of being right because I am obviously wrong. Damn, I should have figured it out sooner… So gimme the light !
            Now try to play MG 1 and keep in mind only Pac-Man or Cerny’s Marble Madness was in front… xD

            Acting “Sot” is a perfect description IMO.

          • InternecivusRaptusStrikesBack

            Although I do agree with most of his opinions, I think he mistook mgi for 4chan . Also , why did he get unbanned after being a dick but when I annoyed the shit out of a retarded prick here because he called me autistic , no one seemed to give a fuck .

            Gatsu scored an immediate headshot on him (xD), but he flat apologized on videogameshelf right away so Nyxus took him out of the brig for now.

            We all get second chances,he made a genuine apology and got unbanned,but trust me there wont be a third one.Nyxus and the mods are the forgiving type,but they are foolish.

          • Gatsu

            You got unbanned too in the past.

          • InternecivusRaptusStrikesBack

            Well I would count you letting me make a new account unbanning the last time and you did unban me and thanks for that .But when you overreacted and no longer wanted to be a mod because some idiot complained to you on stream made me feel bad. But I apologised and you told me to forget about it , I think I learnt my lesson . It’s just that this guy went too far but his effort if apologising which I ignored earlier was far more heartfelt than mine

          • Gatsu

            Let’s all just be a happy family <3. We all sometimes overreact imo and sorry for making you feel bad ;D…

          • Lex Radu

            I think compared to Breaking Bad is a slow paced drama, with very good dialogue and plot, and it dives in a lot of family topics, and the subplot of what will become “Breaking Bad” is also really good, as good if not better than the main plot…actually kinda at the same level.

            Not true, I did so in regards to Final Fantasy supermoves. It’s all fine now, I apologized to people. Excuse me, I was tipsy.

          • Lex Radu

            Which i appreciate, but you also acted like you we’re on the limit of breaking, which is what made those comments kinda funny, but if you’re calm now, that’s good.

            Yes, thank you :3
            I am way too tired of hating other people for trying to have fun, even if I can’t. That is why even on Overwatch I am going to try and speak with as relaxed voice as possible to my teammates. They seem to enjoy it and respect the lack of agressiveness. It’s games, entertainment, in general. It is all okay, it is all fine.
            Same goes for all those people who enjoyed DmC: Devil May Cry – let them enjoy it and perhaps let there even be a sequel one day. I would’ve loved if CAPCOM made DMC5, but it’s fine. It’s all absolutely okay. We are all gamers, it’s good 🙂

        • andy

          That is true. I HATE Metal Gear Solid V. It never felt like a MGS game. All the excitement I had for this leading right up to its launch like what characters would actually be in the game or any amazing surprises.
          What we got was a garbage game with little to no character development whatsoever i.e a game that isn’t an MGS game.

          Who can honestly recount any glorious memorable scenes or amazing goosebump moments from MGSV compared to any other MGS games?

          But here is the thing you got wrong. It is all Kojima’s fault. How can it be Konami’s??? You mean to tell me its THEIR idea to make the game dropping you into the same 2 maps over and over again from different angles doing the same already boring things over and over again?

          There was going to be some Act III that was cut from the game by Konami? Oh damn, was that the part that was going to feel like a true MGS game or just the same crap as the rest of game where you STILL play as some loser.
          Seriously though, Kojima messed up SO bad with this game and I don’t care about some garbage online related modes that may or may not have been made by him regardless.

          • Limit Break

            I’m hearing you, man… Too bad it seems not enough people actually want to view it that way…
            It IS true that the game is really worlds less interesting then even something as mobile as Piece Walker, but you know… Perhaps we should leave it to rest. I am too tired at this point. I am turning 25 in a few months and I really don’t want to be negativity ball… I even want to be positive with people on Overwatch’s voice chat. It really IS tragic, that has transpired with MGSV, but we already have series’ finale – it’s MGS4. And a fail like that won’t happen ever again – what has transpired with MGSV was a unique chain of events that led to such a result.
            It certainly WOULD’ve been very fulfilling to hear Kojima apologize for this sad development, but it, for one thing, would not solve anything at this point. I am sorry, I really am… *puts a hand at your shoulder*
            There will be more good games with good stories to tell. It is okay to cry over this one, but it is fine, it is alright, we are all in this together and we’ll get through this eventually. Even now the fires of anger rage in my rib cage, but it is going to be fine. We’ll get through this. We’ve been hurt, but together we can heal. It is all fine, it is all fine.
            *embraces you*

          • Full Options

            Kojima apologize… You kids are just out of your minds… Even 25… The guy is a legend of game design like Jones or Carmack. The last one that was not fired or bought and fired until 2 years ago. And you just… Mah… forget the fuck about it.

          • Limit Break

            Well, no matter how great he is… He’s still a human being first and foremost. And as any human being one can feel shame and remorse, which he can express, thus calming himself and everyone down. But it seems Kojima doesn’t feel any shame enough to apologize or at least explain what happened.
            No matter, forget it. I am going through a intensive psychological therapy in order to just forgive and forget it all. It doesn’t matter. Here’s for hoping “Death Stranding” is something that will be a satisfying finished game, although I still have no idea why I or anybody else is supposed to be hyped about it… For one, not only don’t we know what the gameplay will look like for certain, we don’t even know what the game’s actual plot is about, so as of right now all it is basically a few visually impressive trailer with actual real-life movie actors… Which would make everyone inevitably think of those characters as those actors first and actual characters second, which is a shame. But whatever, forgive and forget.

      Look, most people around here understand that Konami made some heavy mistakes but insulting them won’t lead us anywhere.
      The product line is so far maintained, lets check what happens before using nukes at them. Do it at least for the talented people that worked for Kojima but are still at Konami.

      • Limit Break

        It doesn’t matter anymore. The game lacks any kind of logical gripping storyline, has shitty boss battles and doesn’t maintain any kind of engaging player-character interaction, forget the lack of cosure for characters like that… Blind old dude, whatever his name was… secret talker or whatever, he is so forgetable I have no idea why anybody would even try to remember his codename. Complete garbage of game.
        For me MGS was a product of a vision of one man that united a group of people, as of now there is no point in seeing it as such completely. It’s like saying that there is gonna be “Angel’s Egg 2” without Amano or Oshii. Complete garbage of an idea.

          You look disappointed. Are you finally mad at Konami or Kojima ? A lot of people wanted it as great as possible, from Kojima to some Konami staff still working there. You can say anything you want, nevertheless you played the most awesome stealth gameplay experience ever created. At least respect that from both Kojima and Konami sides. Admit that on a pure gamedev point of view if the story can’t find any ways to your graces.

          • Limit Break

            Finally ? I am mad for almost two years in a row. No-no-no-no-no, I am not gonna respect ANYTHING unless I get a fulfilling closure to a completely eneventful game that is MGSV,
            Admit what, again…?
            What is so hard in just ending the game with Venom fighting Solid Snake voiced by David Hayter in a awesomely epic multi-leveled complex boss-battle ? THAT would make me shut up ! Easily ! A ACTUAL final boss fight which is hard as nails to win over and achieve at least a goddamn PARADOX ending or something.
            What do your “most awesome stealth gameplay experience” devs have to answer to THAT, huh ?! At LEAST give me some closure any MGS game has ! What is there to enjoy !? Doing one and the same enemy camp again and again throught a WHOOPING TWO DAMN EMPTY MAPS ?! What is MGS about MGSV ?! Is it stupid, but clever story ? Nope ! Is it memorable boss battles ? Nope ! Is it character interaction ? There is almost none there ! Is there a awesome closure ? Na-ah !!!
            Here, this is the absolute bullet-proof evidence anybody has to the fact that MGSV is the most garbage MGS game to ever be released, easily – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KO4Tusk_V2k

          • NegaScott128

            It’s almost like they’re individual people with different opinions about the series.

            Dude, we get it. You don’t like MGSV. But that doesn’t make you a “better fan” than anyone else, nor does that mean that those who like MGSV aren’t “real fans” of the series. It just means you don’t like one game out of the series.

          • Lex Radu

            By the looks of it, with the Metal Gear Movie and all, it appears as though it didn’t continue with Solid, because that could be covered in an entire Movie.

        • andy

          Lol there were boss battles in MGSV?

          • Limit Break

            Sad to say.. Yeah, there were…

          • Insanelycool

            The relative lack of interesting boss battles and the repeating the missions in the second half of the game we’re my biggest disappointments. That being said though, I still love this game. I managed to put in almost 80 before completing the story and we’ll over 300 hours just toying around and getting 100% completion.
            It was the weakest ending of the series, but that’s not really a bad thing considering the competition it has. Gameplay though, the game feels great, it looks beautiful. The engine is easily one of the best and most stable game engines I have seen. It scales well. Honestly a technical accomplishment.
            Kojima wasn’t quite finished (this was easily 2 games worth of content and they gave us 1 and a half). What should make you angry is Konami ensuring that Kojima and his team would never properly support the game and finish it up with patches or something. The Golden goose was laying the Swan-song of a golden egg and Konami did a C-section while tossing Kojima to the curb.

          • Limit Break

            Yeah, I guess you are right.

        • Lex Radu

    Hyper off-topic, buuut how was everyone’s weekend outside MGI :D? I had a great time and saw Guardians of Galaxy 2 yesterday, it was so fantastic ;). I don’t remember if I laughed so much watching a marvel movie before haha. Wishing you all a wonderful week 😉 <3.

    • Been playing Zelda Breath of the Wild mostly, also this arrived yesterday:

        Ohhh that’s so cool :D, I hope I get to play BotW some day too. My recent purchases are Nier Automata and Vanquish. So far I’m 4h in with Nier and already enjoying it so much :). Vanquish I had to buy instantly on Steam when I saw this ;D, can’t wait for 25th. I have it on ps3, but it’s just so epic.

        • Yep Nier is also on the wishlist. And Vanquish is great, you should play it on hard btw, makes the game a lot better.

          • Gatsu

            Hmmm I don’t remember how I played it years ago, but yep gonna try Hard when I get it :).

          • InternecivusRaptusStrikesBack

            Looks like I should do a Mikami marathon with all games on hard and a couple of spare brown pants during midnight
            Well vanquish isn’t horror but unlike RE or TEW(the sequel is leaked) if it’s hard I can’t take any chances

      • InternecivusRaptusStrikesBack

        Heard mixed things about it . Too scripted and you have to climb buildings to unlock maps and shit

      Had an extremely fun 5 hour couch co-op session with 3 of my friends on Diablo 3.
      The game itself,is not a masterpiece as Diablo II: LOD,but moments like these with friends is what makes it stay in fond memories….that and lots of booze and Pringles 😛

      Can’t wait to watch Guardians of the galaxy 2!

      • Gatsu

        Co-op with friends is always fun, booze and pringles mmm 😉 <3.

      Watched Covenant and it was rather cool. ;D

      • Gatsu

        Awesome :D, I’m excited to see it on Friday ^_^!

          Despite some rude and not always deserved critics on this one, I am sure you’ll appreciate it. I hope so anyways. I personally found it very fairly cool. ;D

          Reeeyeyeyueueueyeuue- Autistic Neo screech

      I herd the character moments are much better than in the first 1, that it has a lot more emotion, and that Peter (Star Lord) has the second best arc next to “Mary Poppins, ya’ll!

    • Lex Radu

      Speaking of upcoming movies, i’m really looking forward to Wonder Woman!

    • InternecivusRaptusStrikesBack

      I don’t think I cried so much watching a marvel film 🙁
      Overall I found it good but worse than the first one but it also didn’t follow marvel’s formula. And went the empire way so…
      7.5/10
