It was announced yesterday in a video released by Sony that Hideo Kojima’s next game will be a PlayStation 4 exclusive.
This jives with rumors yesterday that he was in talks with Sony about making a game for them, but it appears his studio will remain independent and not (as some rumors said) will work exclusively for Sony.
This second part is a smart movie by Kojima because it allows him, once his studio becomes more established, to make games on all platforms. This might not mean he’ll make games exclusively for the Xbox One anytime soon, but Kojima is a self-proclaimed Nintendo fanboy and I could see him making a game for the Nintendo NX in the near future.
Like I said yesterday, I’m excited for a new Kojima game, but also, his not Metal Gear games have received mixed reviews, but I think given total freedom with this new game we’re going to see nothing short of something ambitions and at the very least visually breathtaking.
So what do you think about this deal? Are you already ordering a PS4 if you don’t already have one? Let us know in the comments below.
