Did anybody else get the possible reference of this image to the Christian Ash Wednesday?


It is the first day of fasting in which Christians commemorate Jesus' 40 days fasting in the desert, where he endured repeated temptation by Satan. On this day Christians ceremonially mark the sign of the cross with ashes on their forehead.

Sounds like a theme that could relate to Big Boss' transformation in TPP.

Please Konami release a MGO Beta in June at least. I trust that the finished product will work at the time of release, but why take that chance. Release a beta to figure out the kinks. And it might get a lot of new users to the game to try it out. please.

Man, you can really see the anger and sadness in his eye.

I also can't get over how incredible the soundtrack sounds from the video. God, I can't wait to play the hell out of TPP.

On my birthday? How sweet of you Kojima <3

Awesome, that's my birthday. It'll be a nice present from myself :)
However, that's still 6 months to go :(

Nice. My birthday. That's a fucking awesome birthday gift, haha.


Add me to the September 1 birthday posse.

Also, lolz at IGN for being scooped and having to wait until what I assume is the contractually obligated time to announce the date. Oh well, a suh life go.

IGN just tripped and fell and dropped everything today. Between the MKX leaks and MGSV leaks it's a comedy of errors.

You know what's even longer than an extra 3 months? The time til the next MGS game, if its even worthy. Cherish the finished product and the extra polish, it's there to entertain us for the long wait.

I blame the 360/PS3 ports. Definitely hogging up precious development time.

just kidding of course. But I wonder why they bothered pooling the resources on the ports when the crossgen titles of 2014 didn't exactly set the charts on fire. They will be lucky to sell a half mil copies on last gen.

Anyone have any clue what the Phantom Cigar does on the countdown page yet? It seems to skip 20 minutes on the clock.

Do you think we can see whatever we can see when the timer reaches zero 20 minutes early if we click the cigar when there are less than 20 minutes left?

Can't watch the video because of proxy reasons but DAMN, I wasn't so sure it'd get a 2015 release date, and now we have one.

All the hype ever.

I love how this shit was told to us my Master Genius Troll Kojima some time ago.

Coming 1984

1 = 1st, 9 = September, 8 = 2+0+1+5, 4 = 4 # digits

I still need my brain, why would you blow it like that?

It speeds up time and then gives you an error and resets it, basically a gimmick :)

PS3 still does fine in japan.
And yes, the market for last gen consoles has been getting slow, but they had no way to know this when they were developing the game, and when they had most of the work done it would be a waste to dispose of all that work, imo.

(And XONE version isnt that far off from last gen's)

I'm hoping they'll give details of a LE or CE for the game for pre order. And give us MGO beta. I would be happy with either of those.

Well, yeah. That interview video. But I would love a new game trailer.

Supposedly there will be a video that will give the release date announcement a bit more fanfare than the IGN video, and that could be a trailer I suppose.

But man, how many trailers will there be by release?

Only in resolution if I remember. Locked 60 vs An unstable 30. Basically, all the PS4 enhancements other than atmospheric simulation and resolution.

Though I do hope they've been able to optimize Foxengine for Xbox One and taken advantage of the additional SDK GPU & CPU capacity since Ground Zeroes launched. Hope they can hit 900p.

There wont be nothing, if it
Wasnt leaked it was great news, but happened and they continue with this because they ate professionals and have to keep things as if nothing happened, people waiting a new trailer are
Crazy, there will be plenty of time for that at e3 and another one two weeks
Before its released.

Why are we were? Just to suffer?

I (and probably you and every other Metal Gear fan) was that way in 2008.

I would probably be that way today if Solid Snake's story wasn't concluded.
