Kojima in Paris: Fox Engine not ready for E3

Hideo Kojima is touring Europe, celebrating the MGS series' 25th anniversary. But really, he's just going around drinking expensive wine and showing his pants to the world on Twitter. Sometimes, he's also talking in interviews.
In Paris, him and Yoji Shinkawa gave a 90 min "master class" interview, in front of an audience (see full video here: http://www.gameblog.fr/news/28829-kojima-shinkawa-la-conference-metal-gear-integrale-en-video )
A few interesting details that came out of it:
He and his team have been following Sony's hardware and it's evolution with their games so far, but not anymore. He believes in "cloud gaming" as the next big thing.
They've been working on Fox Engine for 2-3 years, and he wants to demonstrate the engine in July, because that's when the series will hit 25 years in Japan.
That demo will not be related to Project Ogre, but just the engine.
For E3, Rising will be playable!
He also talks about being done with Snake's story, but still having things to say about The Boss.
Eventually, he would like to open other KojiPro studios, in the West. That's one of the reasons why they've been recruiting at GDC.

Haven't watched the whole interview yet, so maybe I'm missing a few things...

After PW I really wish they would leave the Boss the hell alone, she was done just right in MGS3.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

They sure take their time...MGS 4 has been out for 4 years and Risings development was an utter failure till Platinum Games joined.

It is a current gen engine not done and the generation is at an end.

unless it's being redone to take advantage of the next generation of consoles. I'm actually kind of expecting MGS5 to be a near launch game for atleast the PS4(maybe nextbox aswell), and I think most expect that Ogre, and MGS5 are the same thing.

They've made PW and some re-releases since then, too.
I know but still...this Gen ist 6 years old and their only Big HD games was MGS 4 - kinda pathetic for such a studio.

i know its Platinum handling gameplay people, but Kojima Prob have their fingerprints all over this game.

its just as much a Kojima Prob game as it is a Platinum game.
