I'm halfway convinced now that Kojima's "severing" from Konami is all part of the ruse. Konami had released an official statement that Kojima has not been fired. A voice actress on twitter accused Konami of firing him and they quickly expressed that Kojima was not fired. The only real effects of whatever is happening here is the removal of Kojimas logo from his games. This makes me think of the phantom pains theme. Loosing something that was there.
It's impossible for a thread like this to not re-rail with old info at some point. I can't wait for the next person to come in here, frothing with rage, telling people to stop calling the poor Italian professor because it makes NeoGAF look bad.
I fear this may lead to some serious serious trouble for The Dr. and Kojima.
This is getting absolutely out of control. Someone needs to get into contact with Kojima and shut this down before it gets even more out of hand.
As much as I want to believe, there is just no way, no stinkin' way.
