Metal Gear Solid V final box art (A Hideo Kojima Game/Kojima Productions removed)

#5
side note: I wish publishers would stop with this day one nonsense. it just adds some boring DLC in most cases and ruins the box art. Put a sticker or something instead.

It is upsetting to see it go.
I am still not a fan of the cover art. Was hoping for a little bit more. Ground Zeroes wasn't all that great either. I ended up using the other end.

Maybe when the game's out someone can shop "A Hideo Kojima Game" back on the box. Or maybe Tora would be so kind as to provide the full art so we could have it ready for launch? ;)

So bizarre, the group will be liquidated anyway, why go the seemingly vindictive group of erasing their logo and name from the last game they'll ever make, a game they spent so many years making?

It's OK, someone will have a printable high res PDF cover restoring honour and glory in the OT, I'm sure.

The rest of us will be over here, shrugging.

There was absolutely no way of knowing this kind of thing would happen. This will adversely affect my gameplay experience in effect.

Konami might be a bad games company at this present time.

So what content did they cut from the day not one edition?
DLC Items:
Adam-ska Special Handgun
Personal Ballistic Shield (Silver)
Cardboard Box (Wetland)
Fatigues (Blue Urban Snake Costume)
Metal Gear Online XP Boost

(GameStop lists the map, but I believe that is included in all versions of the game!)

So when the inevitable MGS6 releases certain people will not realize the absence of Hideo Kojima's involvement.

Ehh... I really don't care if Kojima's name is on the front or not. I've always found it to be very self indulgent even back in the PS2 era.

Honestly the worst part of the box art, and a terrible trend in recent box art, is the whole day one banner crap. Seriously, it's so tacky. It screams thanks for buying this game at full price!

Man Konami is making it really hard for me to want to purchase this due to being huge douchebags about this whole thing.

It's OK to move on and go your own ways, but he was the creator of this series. No harm in having Directed by Hideo Kojima on the front.

I will support the game because Kojima has worked so hard on it along with his team...I say to anyone doubtful about buying it don't be. Kojima and his team want us all to enjoy the hard work they have done for us the fans. We know who made it and Kojima knows as well they will be very grateful for it. Just remember that it will be the last bit of money the company will ever see from you after the fact.
