It doesn't. Not yet.

The "early 2015" people float around was actually placeholder text from an early build of the website we had made but wasn't supposed to go out. Then, oops, those copies of GZ got leaked in the Middle East and people had a website to go to that wasn't supposed to be live yet with placeholder text.

Continue to hold on to your code, they will be instrumental in redeeming your GZ->TPP loyalty reward, and we will have more details for that as we come up to September 1. But until the game comes out there's really nothing to worry about, yet.
Fantastic, thank you.
 
My buddy from KONAMI San Mateo gave me the answer, best to go looking for the originally Japanese names and sort of backwards engineering a name from there. At least Robo will always be Robo and Frog will always be Frog.
... well what were the answers?! Or must I go learn Japanese first, because I'm not leaving this mystery unsolved.

Also, Schala. Shh all uh?

Tora in the original MGS V release date PR release it mentioned the UK steam version would cost £60

Is this an error ?

So I'm the North America rep, which means that really I can only officially comment on anything related to US/CAN and some limited MEX/ARG/CHI/BRA info, but I took a look at the press release and it does indeed say that. I recommend throwing the question at my coworkers at KonamiEU/KonamiUK or @ParodiSu on Twitter. My take is that it appears to not be an error.

Hello Tora:

Glad to see you back. Finally got platinum on all MGS games and I'm working on GZ.

Any chance for the MGS V TPP PS4 console to be sold in US?

This is probably a bad time to ask this and I'm sure older Outer GAF has already discussed this but yes, it just hit me as I was looking at Tora's avatar and wondering if it's been recently edited to match Venom Snake or it's always been like that
it hasn't, duh?
...

Why doesn't MGS 4 Big Boss have no shrapnel protrusion?
Will TPP address it's "removal"? Is it even there to begin with?
Maybe even Tora-san can shed some light on the matter... ( ._.)

Radio, where ever you, I hope I made you proud.

Tora here. How can I help?

Also wanted to say the OT looks lovely as always, well done, team.
Wow, didn't expect that to work that well. Hi, Tora!

What does it take to be apart of that 80's movie poster thing? I think I could make something cool for it, so what's the submission process like?
When Tora is mentioned he usually replies. Dunno how it works.

BUT! always taking a chance to say hi and high five Tora! Keep up the good work running the patriots buddy!

He's running Konami now :D

I do have a question regarding TPP. Is there talks of a Steam pre-load option at all? We all have no idea how big the game will be. All we know is really what hardware we need to run the game. So even if you don't know if there will be a pre-load option, is there a way to get the message to others so that could be a real possibility? Please? :3

well they made his body back out of solidus so they basically could rebuild him with an arm and shrapnel free.

That would be the logical expectation. Can't comment on exact details or dates at this time. I don't think I need to remind you to make sure you are following our channels for updates and news.
Ah yeah understandable. I really really hope we see Kojima at E3.

Whoa, grats on the plats!

If this is in regards to that AskPlayStation tweet from earlier, I'm not sure where they got that answer. If you are looking for confirmation, I can't give that, sadly.
Thanks.

It's all good. I preordered the MGS V TPP console from an import store and was wondering if US Sony decides to sell that console, I would buy it for cheaper costs. :)

Glad to see you back.

Nice to meet you Tora, can I ask you a question?
If you can't answer then feel free to tell me to go away :)

Will we get another trailer for TTP at E3 and if we are getting one then do you know if it'll be a story trailer or a trailer along the lines of the Nuclear one?

Thanks!

I knew something was off. They are basically a support service so them "confirming" it was coming over was suspicious.

Wait, wait... Back up. Hol' up, Jindrax. They did what now? Was this something Big Momma said? When was this?
Christ, just when you think you know your MGS lore, you realise you do not.
Are you saying MGS 4 Big Boss went through some surgical operation to re-grow his arm?
please don't say, "yes, because nanomachines, son."
Similar procedure with Liquid Ocelot?
ok, now I'm reaching.

I'm scared the new trailer isn't made by Kojima and his team and so they spoil too much :/

Please be a Kojima directed trailer.

I will be very surprised if it isn't a Kojima trailer. I just dont think his name will be everywhere anymore when it comes to the promotion of MGSV.
