Better than the typical "no plans right now" response we often get. At least he acknowledges they do want it on PC, but they are not tackling it right now.

Of course, we are developing on a PC, so we look forward to releasing something on the PC sometime.

But right now we don't have a release date, we aren't really looking to doing that right now, its not really a priority.

I suspect they will take the same strategy they took with MG:R.
It will eventually hit PC.

MG:R's sales on PC will be the litmus test I'd wager.

I'll be buying it and keep my fingers crossed for MGS:V.

It will be out a year or six months after the console version is released.

Now that Pc and console architecture is apparently so similar wouldn't ports come out faster and better as a result ?

Fox Engine has PC in mind. I dunno why you'd be surprised of a MGS5 port.

Frankly, I hope it does happen. It's the only "console exclusive" game left that showed at E3 that I want that isn't getting a PC version.

Pretty much what Bungie said for Destiny. I guess it makes sense, developers are already on overdrive and establishing new consoles is a higher priority than the already established PC market. I hope this kind of goes away once everything settles down though.

Yup release it along side the console versions.

Market the game using the vastly superior looking pc version to wow people into buying the inferior console versions.

If I was a publisher this gen I would follow this model for every big release.

If you're a ninja in avoiding spoilers then sure thing.

I would've waited also if I was a PC guy, I ain't. I did ninja'd my way around MGS4 spoilers until I played it 2 years after its release.

Ignore it and you might get ignore as well.

Well, PC has been hitting everyone's radar in the past couple of years, after falling to the wayside for awhile. So his statement is pretty much a guarantee in my book, unless Rising bombs hard as hell, which I can't see happening.

Although, that's a pretty crummy indicator anyway, Rising is in the DmC/Bayo genre, but I still think it will do enough that they'll put out MGSV.

Capcom pulls shit like this and it's pretty frustrating. "Buy X crap game, and you'll see Y great game!" So I hope Konami is smart enough to see things differently.

I'll buy Rising, but not because it's a "test game" -- I'll buy it because I heard it's good.

Rising looks pretty good and all, but I don't hold much hope in it selling all that great. It's just not a genre that's ever been popular on the platform.

MG:R is coming to PC.

Oh, I don't count that is as a mainline MGS game, tho. I hope so. It's just Konami's track record hasn't been that great, although they've rectified this.

It fills a niche and I suspect it will do pretty well at a certain price point and during the seasonal sales.
