Metal Gear Solid V “Too Big” For One Game.


Metal Gear Solid V, 5 or The Phantom Pain depending on what you want to call it has proven a difficult concept for some gamers to grasp given that it’s being released it two parts. The first,  Ground Zeroes acting as a prologue while the second, The Phantom Pain will be the main event.
It’s been an odd decision ever since Konami confirmed it to be happening but one Hideo Kojima has tired to explain in a recent interview with Famitsu.
“It would’ve actually been better to release (both Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain) all at once but by the way things are going, it appears likely that Phantom Pain will be coming out around the time the PlayStation 4 becomes more spread out, that means we would’ve had too many people wait a while longer, however, The Phantom Pain has enormous volume, so it will require much more time than that, so together with the marketing staff, we consulted ‘what ifs’ and such, and came to the decision of allowing fans to at least play a prologue, ahead of time.”
Mr. Kojima would go on to say that he had also planned to only release Ground Zeroes as a digital download title to keep it’s price low (£19.99/€19.99 on the PS3 and 360 and £29.99/€29.99 on the PS4 and XOne) but upon further consideration it was decided boxed versions should also be offered just in case some MGS fans lacked a stable internet connection.

  1. Too big for one game? More like too many cut scenes for one Blu Ray. If you strip the story, prior MGS games tend to be rather short.

    1. I’ve always loved Metal Gear’s cut scenes, well up until 4 anyway but I’m looking forward to 5 even if it does turn out a bit short as usual.
