"Hideo Kojima‘s long-rumoured Xbox project was still on as of a “couple of weeks ago”, it’s been claimed.

It was reported in April 2021 that Microsoft was in talks to sign the next game from the Japanese designer best known for the Metal Gear Solid series.

And last July, it was claimed that Microsoft and Kojima had signed a letter of intent stating that they planned to work together on a new Xbox game.

In a new update on his premium Giant Bomb show Grubbsnax (transcribed by VGC), VentureBeat reporter Jeff Grubb said those plans were still in place.

“As of a couple of weeks ago, the Xbox and Kojima deal was still on,” he claimed.

The update was delivered amid speculation that Sony may have acquired Kojima Productions, following Death Stranding’s inclusion in a promotional banner for PlayStation first-party studios.

Grubb went on to say: “This isn’t based on the information I had last year, this is more recent than that. This is still on”.

He added: “Does this mean that PlayStation couldn’t have acquired Kojima Productions? Not necessarily”.

That's true as well. They were struggling with the secret RDNA 3 technology PS5 has inside.
Nah he didn’t say that. It was that developers were running into similar issues as Capcom. Long story short he made it seem like there was a very significant power difference between the two. Similar to Chris Granells staggering comment.

When it comes to RDNA3 I believe it was RedTechGaming that started it if I’m not wrong.

Even if he has “sources” doesn’t mean they are reliable.

All this is just pointless.

Definitely the one that told him that gold was going away. At least we know he has one Xbox source that isn’t reliable.

Edit: correction I meant paid online multiplayer.

During the BAFTA Game Awards, Phil had a quick appearance and he still had the Luden figurine on his shelf...

He tweeted that major news would be announced the next day. The next day he said he was full of shit and there was no news.

He didn't say anything like that at all.

People projected onto his tweets and that led to everyone's faux disappointment.

PS5 has indeed a massive power deficit. What people don't know is that the "Liquid Metal" was 'donated' by Mr. Cerny Kamisama himself. (If you know what I mean).

That 'Liquid Metal' is infused with nanomachines, they are what's is commonly called:

It wasn't a joke. He and super best friend Greg Miller seriously thought big news was coming(he said as much in multiple tweets). The next day he said he was "joking" to save (that greasy) face.

The Greg Miller thing was something different entirely and started by Miller. Not Grubb.

People are citing him being a 'banned' source when he made a joke tweet, which he later said within 10~20 minutes that he has no idea if anything will be announced the next day.




1/ If you read that as that 'he said there would be a big announcement tomorrow', that's .. I don't know what to say man.

2/ He said this a mere 10~ minutes after, that he has no idea if anything will get announced:




Nothing but forum user projection here. If that's enough to ban him, have at it hoss.
