Number of owned nuclear weapons in MGSV – June 2 Update

It’s Friday, and that means a fresh update on the total number of nuclear weapons owned in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Community Manager J, via the official Japanese Metal Gear Twitter has released a new set of graphs showing nuclear weapon ownership between May 1st and June 2nd.

The current numbers, as of June 2nd, are as follows:

PS4: 2197
PS3: 804
Xbox One: 126
Xbox 360: 284
Steam: 8456

Since last update:
Number of nukes went up
Number of nukes went down

With the exception of PlayStation 4, all platforms saw a decrease of nukes since the last update, some more significant than others. On Xbox One still has the lowest count, and sits at 126. A good development as the last update saw an increase on most platforms.

    • Is it good?

      • Lex Radu

        It’s great.
        I will show you 1 scene out of context tom get the feel of it, it feels a lot like Death Stranding, it has the same tone the trailers have!

      • It depends if you enjoy visual storytelling in general more than just a good story.
        I like it, but not at the level when I can say that I can recommend it to everyone.
        It has a lot of symbolism compared to it’s substance.

        It’s not for everyone for sure.

        • Sounds kinda interesting.

    • Tom Brearley-Smith

      Um, no. But didju rike it?

      • Lex Radu

        Yep, quite a lot!

    I got a feeling that the reason we haven’t heard anything about “SurVive” is because it got canceled, and Sony is the process of buying the rights of the “Metal Gear” Franchise and maybe even “Silent Hill”, to not only have the Movies, but continue the Video Games too, using their First Party studious, like Naughtydog, or maybe even ending up letting Kojima Productions and Hideo touch his baby for 1 more time!

    Yes, i believe that this is what the role the conections between PT, MGS and DS are playing, they are seeds in case Sony goes through with the deal.

    They are already making The Movies, and Konami loves Money, and Sony has done some great moves lately, so what stops them from giving Konami a sh*t ton of Money to buy the rights to at least Metal Gear, and why would Konami refuse a sh*t ton of Money? They wouldn’t.

    Now let’s hope that this is the case, as much as i like the idea of SurVive, i thinks it’s better for it to NOT!

      Survive went to a too advanced state. Believe me, I’d love your scenario but Konami seem simply trying to steal MG this past 2 years. They know there are some bucks to grab, whether on Japan’s or international market.. 🙁

      • Lex Radu

        So was Silent Hills, it was said to be 70/80% done, and they still cancelled it!

        • Full Options

          They won’t cancel MG or they’ll be nothing more than gym rooms and poor casual gaming mobile apps, regarding software.

          • Lex Radu

            Isn’t that what they already are?

          • Eugene Voldo

            Dont forget, they have PES 2018 in the bag.

        • Silent Hills was not 70/80% done. It was in a concept stage at that time, not even in the development.

          MG Survive is not cancelled. Stay tuned.

          • Lex Radu

            Remains to be seen, if i’m wrong, i’m wrong, and if i’m right, i don’t want a medal either!

    • It’s not canceled, just wait for E3. 🙂

    • Tom Brearley-Smith

      If Sony were to buy some of Konami’s popular IPs, I would like to see…
      -Castlevania or Silent Hill developed by FromSoftware – like the Souls games and Bloodborne, Castlevania is known to be fun but challenging
      -Contra developed by Guerilla Games – fast-paced action and tight gameplay
      -Metal Gear developed by Kojima Productions or Naughty Dog – a meticulously crafted game with a compelling story while staying true to the series roots (the latter of which would do at least one MG game after The Last of Us Part II)
      -Please note Kojima doesn’t have to direct any more Metal Gear games, but it’d be a treat for him to do one last Metal Gear after Death Stranding, e.g. what the real Big Boss was doing during Venom Snake’s escapades in MGSV, The Boss and the Cobra Unit during WWII, MSX MG remakes or Metal gear Rising 2 along with Platinum Games. If not, that’s fine by me.

      I’m sure this may not be likely to happen, but I thought I’d like to share my thoughts on the matter.

      • Lex Radu

        I’m sure it will happen, give how Clever Sony is, and how Greedy is Konami, and will always be.

        As for the Metal Gear Series, maybe there won’t be any actual MG Game, but instead would allow someone like Kojima to do a interdimensional crossover with it, if he wants, as the stories you emtnioned would serve better as Movies, especially the story of the Cobra Unit, would be the exact plot of MGS3, the exact ending, but this time with The Boss killing The Sorrow, acting as foreshadowing for her death 10 years later!

        • Lex Radu

          And it would also be the best starting point for the Movie Franchise, the Inciding Incident that is The Boss!

        • NegaScott128

          The problem with doing stuff like Big Boss during MGSV, Cobra Unit in WWII, and more Raiden stuff is that you need the context of the rest of the series for that to work. Even if they decided to do those stories as films, it would be years before the films would be at a point where you had built up enough of the universe for a general audience to understand what’s going on. If you just jump right in with a Boss WWII movie, and you don’t know what Metal Gear is and what it’s supposed to lead to, you’re just left with a WWII movie featuring a weird guy who shoots bees at people. You need to set up who the Boss is and what she represents, otherwise it means nothing.

          Doing a Big Boss or Raiden movie would be even more difficult, because there’s too much backstory that you need to know before you can understand what’s going on. With Big Boss, you need to recap MGS3, PW, and MGSV before you can even start the movie, and it’s absurd to think you can do all that and tell a complete story in 2-2.5 hours without resorting to massive info dumps and confusing general audiences. You need to do even more if you do a Raiden movie. You would be able to follow along without all that, because you’re a fan of the series, but 99% of people would not. You need to adapt the other games first before you do those stories.

          • Lex Radu

            You are right about everything, excet the Story of The Boss, it’s the only story that would work as an indivudual Movie, the best place to start, cause this Story is the Inciding Incident of the whole saga, so it would only make sense to go Chronological for the Movies unlike The Games, and what better place to start than This.

            You won’t need to know anything about Metal Gear to experience the story of The Boss, you actually be better not knowing anything at all, as long as The Movie will be as good as it could be, if Jordan really takes advantage of the potential here, he would have a Period Peace, and ansable cast, a personal story about something that is more than friendship, and even more than a relationship, but not a relationship, between Big Boss and The Boss, and would also be a comentary on the unseen part of WW2, of a child who lost her family, finding purpose with Cobra, and the love for himanity with John, Big Boss, seeking for a better world.

            Also given how well Wonder Woman is doing we’ll be seeing more Female lead Movies, and Metal Gear has arguably the best Female Heroine since Wonder Woman, i would say even better.

            As from that point on, you addapt the Game, except you switch things around, even little aspecs, like how Big Boss lost his eye, keeping or even giving it more of an impact for the characters and the world, and maybe even focus on some Movie on other characters than the Snake, i mean, you could make a Movie about Gray Fox and Naomi, or 1 “Logan like” Movie about Raiden, or…the list is endless.

          • NegaScott128

            A general audience would be able to understand a Boss WWII movie, but if they don’t know what MGS is, they won’t care. They will just see it as another WWII movie, except with a guy who shoots bees at people. And though it is the first thing that happens in the series, I think MGS3 is the true inciting incident of the series, since it sets off the conflicts and characters that affect everything else. All that would happen in a Boss movie is Ocelot being born and maybe Boss killing Sorrow, neither of which are particularly important to the overall story of the series. And the appeal of a female protagonist isn’t a guarantee of ticket sales. Ghost in the Shell was a huge bomb, and even the Hunger Games films dropped off in revenue as time went on. Wonder Woman is making money because it’s Wonder Woman. She’s an icon of pop culture, so the film is an event. Most people haven’t even heard of MGS, so any MGS film would be like a new IP to them. We’ve had a lot of WWII movies, and doing another one with vague supernatural elements and a woman in the lead role probably wouldn’t be interesting enough of a concept to get people in the seats. MGS3 has a 60s setting that hasn’t been explored very often in modern film, and James Bond homages like Kingsman have done very well recently. From a business standpoint, it would make more sense to adapt that game first, since it’s a more interesting idea and a good place to start the series.

            “A general audience would be able to understand a Boss WWII movie, but if they don’t know what MGS is, they won’t care. ”

            You couldn’t be more wrong about it, they would care if it’s a Good Movie, cause it wil be unique for sure, i mean tell me a Movie set in WW 2, about a Woman giving birth of the battlefield, being sent to space, iradiated, and fighting with a team of Metahumans.

            There is none, it would feel like Wonder Woman, but with Wonder Woman without powers, and with the mind of Batman, and it would feel like a female Jame Bond too!

          • Lex Radu

            With Female “Superheroine Movie” on the rise, it wouldn’t be a better time to bring the best Video Game Heroine to the Big Screen!

      You don’t start the franchise with The Boss. You start it with Snake. He is the “hero” that people will want to identify with. The Boss is a great supporting character and ‘maybe’ after the lore is introduced she could have the spotlight.

      So, is Wonder Woman a good movie? i mean “good”, not King Kong “good”, but Nolan’s Batman “good”. I hear mixed opinions on it.

      • Lex Radu

        No, you start with The Boss, you do the Movies in Chronological order to separate them from the Games.

        Why The Boss? She is the inciding incident that starts the whole Franchise!

        • radun

          So, what Metal Gear does The Boss fight..? How many Metal Gears were there before there were any Metal Gears…?

          (please don’t say a slightly bigger nazi tank)

          • Lex Radu

            It won’t be called Metal Gear, it will be a WW2 Drama with a Female soldier, a pregnant Female soldier, who eventually joing the Cobra Unit, and find her lifemate, John, who which she develops CQC with!

          • Lex Radu

            It’s the safest option.

      • Lex Radu

        it’s a pretty good Film, and a great Comic Book film.

        The Best way to compare it, is like Hacksaw Ridge, what i mean by that, is that the first half is slow paced, with a good ballance of Humor and Drama, and then it picks up and goes full War Action, Action in a way that it promotes Peace instead of the War, then in the third act it goes full God Vs God CGI Fest, one of the best though, much better than the doomsday fight.

        It’s a verry good Character piece.

      Mah, it seems each time they publish some new stats, it also reminds players to do the opposite of last ones or something… Last time, all but PS4 was down and now the opposite… Pfff… 😀

          Smells cool indeed, although we need a bit more precision regarding those so called countermeasures…
          For example, steam looks definitely breached, but I am not sure at all it is the case for consoles. Also, will they lead enough forensics efforts to subtract nukes that were previously crafted or stolen using cheats ?
          If they don’t drastically change the game rules, chances are low to reach zero on consoles as well…

          • Mr.Pony

            yeah, pumping the brakes now and preventing people to cheat further doesn’t really mean that it’s going to affect people who already have rigged FOB’s with 99 cameras, UAVs and mines, which just makes your game crash as soon as you try to invade. Here’s to hoping for the best tough.

          • Full Options

            Mmmh, I hope they took into account those situations.. They might me able to retrace but in the case you are describing they can not confiscate those nukes owned since it would rather be more a bug than a cheat…
