...... ANYWAY, the chicken cap is something you can choose to use if you get spotted a lot. It'll make you harder for enemies to spot.

@JunkerHQNet:
It even carries over to cutscenes if you're wearing it. Has various gameplay gimmicks.

@JunkerHQNet:
Looks like you can wear the chicken cap at the same time as goggles or gas mask. Shinkawa's design sheet asks that they not interfere

@JunkerHQNet:
If you get spotted a lot, a message pops up asking you if you want to use the chicken cap

@JunkerHQNet:
You can also use the chicken cap online

WARNING: MGS3 SPOILERS
@JunkerHQNet:
Wearing the chicken cap during a cutscene is like wearing oyama face paint when you kill
The Boss

@JunkerHQNet:
There's a specific reason why it has its feathers too. You can see in the Shinkawa design sheet a "!"

@JunkerHQNet:
They'll also be releasing an official chicken cap after TPP is out. But it won't be as heavy as the one they had with them today.

@JunkerHQNet:
Apparently when you see the chicken cap in action you'll understand exactly why soldiers overlook you. It's a funny element, Kojima says.

Looks like we'll get some kind of gas mask in single player too!

"One more thing to note about the chicken cap is that Kojima mentions something about earning points while wearing it, but my translator couldn't hear clearly, so he'll rewatch that segment for a clearer translation."

It's a fun little idea for those that are not so good at the game and may need it, or you know, for those who just want a laugh and some fun in their games.

Assuming it isn't mandatory, go for it

I guess we have an answer to the age old question. Which came first, the chicken or the release date?

Shame on Kojima for egging us on, he could have said no release date from the beginning instead of making us wait 3 hours..

Said it before around E3, but I'm not a Metal Gear fan by any standards, that said, with the amount of stupid ridiculous stuff in this game, I can't help but want to play it, storyline confusion be damned.

I'm going to fulton everything in a chicken hat, and that's pretty cool.

This game is going to have pretty massive problems with tone, then? Rape and child soldiers on one hand.....chicken hats and fultoned sheep on the other.

Wait guys, that probably means this mask is in the game too. My guess is if you run around like Rambo and kill everybody.

Every Metal Gear game is both serious and incredibly silly. And that's why this franchise is great.

That is Rey Mysterio's mask. That's a WWE product.

I think he put it on for fun. If it's anything like Rey Mysterio, it means by using it you're going to blow your knees out and be injured all the fucking time.

I never played MGS4 but it always seemed to me like the silliness in MGS was generally relegated to weird easter eggs that you rarely came across. Now it's a part of core gameplay mechanics.
