They're on the ground floor.

GROUND ZEROES.

Also, young mantis...

I guess I'm starting to see it. Like if his head is tilted a little to the side? And is he holding something draped over his arms?

That's probably Paz with her back turned.

Would it be too out of the ballpark to think that the doctor is Dr. Madnar? I understand he had a mustache during Outer Heaven & Zanzibar Land, but this could be him. Just an idea.

Or Kio Marv?

They're saying that because the footage looked nice and wasn't jerking around at sub 20 frames a second.

Lol Uncharted and Last Of Us for example look better imo. I just don't see what is so next gen about this. Watch_Dogs and Star Wars on the other hand.. Ch...

And even the Ground Zeroes trailer.

I'm not trying to downplay this though. I just really don't see it :(

It would also make sense that a doctor who worked treating amputees would go on to be the guy who did early cybernetics in the MGS universe.

Oh I agree. You just gotta realize Far Cry 3 came out and expectations are weird. Console games usually run like shit now ;_;

This is handes down the wildest trolling I have ever seen.

I seriously thought it was just another lame new IP that apes COD and Silent Hill by some new no name studio.

Yeah, missing arm guy is Liquid.

The whale ate Ocelot, and gained the psychic consciousness of Liquid.

I love Metal Gear Solid but I fucking hate Metal Gear Solid as well. This game has been a part of me since childhood.

You know what the craziest thing would be? If this actually WAS a unique game that had nothing to do with Metal Gear, lol.

the whale is just a hallucination

mgsv takes place after mgs1, he hallucinated the events of mgs2 and 4 too

Sam Becket leaped into Liquid's body to put right what once went wrong and stop MGS2 and 4 from ruining the franchise!

You guys think that's really Keifer Sutherland? I wouldn't be surprised. Kojima being a huuuuge 24 fan doesn't seem like a stretch at all.

Wow, those are some impressive framerates the Vita is outputting, right guys??

I can't tell if the Vita people are joking or not. Hell, I'm having doubts PS360 is powerful enough to handle this. If this is actual in-engine footage, not a target render, then they're exploiting current-gen power close to max, and we're reaching that golden period that happens at the end of each console generation where games look totally insane.

They said it was all in game on the VGA's.

The character model looks good from what little I can see but they need to do something about the sterile, almost texture-less background. I get that is MGS trademark but at this point in this gen, it doesn't look good.

A quick far-fetched but maybe plausible idea, what if it's Liquid?

+Things that would make more sense
  • Amputated arm
  • Muscle dystrophy
  • British flag
  • Psycho Mantis
  • Various animal spirits

-Things that would make less sense
  • Volgin
  • (Alleged by some) The Pain and The Fury
  • White petals
  • Other known links to the original Ground Zeros trailer

At first I was almost sure it was Liquid Snake (lighter hair than Ground Zeroes' Big Boss, missing arm, Snake appearance), but then I remembered his amputated arm was his RIGHT arm, not his left.

It gives me goosebumps. Like a horror vibe

I heard that Kojima would love to make a Silent Hill type game, so I'm guessing he's going to focus more on the horror of war etc in this game, unless this is just one unique part of the game.

I'm wondering if this is the "taboo" game he talked about? or will it be something else?

Can someone catch me up, why are people saying this is VITA??

Also, is this confirmed to be MGS V, and a multiplat?

LOL ...Moby Dick Studios domain was created only 6 days ago

http://whois.domaintools.com/mobydick-studio.com


I guess this is their way of getting viral marketing done.

After all, it is the fifth game... This whole invisible writing, anagram, "phantom"/phantom limb ..."white whale" approach does make the discussion a bit more intriguing...

More than just saying, here's Metal Gears Solid 5

Instead they said, hey here's a new IP ...
and everyone paid closer attention, not just MGS fans.

This was an incredible trailer; while watching the first thing I started thinking was that it felt very reminiscent of a Kojima style trailer... then I saw the character get out of the bed and literally my first reaction was "Holy fuck, is that Snake?!" The mullet, the old man, the music, the style of the trailer, the developer... it just oozes Metal Gear.

Wow.

It says PS3 and xbox at the bottom of the moby dick studio website, I'm assuming that's what the OP title is going off of.

TLOU looks better than this. This is most certainly console footage.

Apparently someone asked Shuhei Yoshida (Sony's President of Worldwide Studio) whether a Vita owner should watch VGA, he said yes.

Then Gaffers have been speculating why the hidden text is Metal Gear Solid V (Roman Numeral) rather than 5, some say that it's because it's Vita.

Nothing so far is confirmed. If all the speculations are true, then on the bottom right of http://www.mobydickstudio.se there's PS3 and 360 logo.

I'm dead ass laughing @ ppl saying this is next gen.

They don't seem to have any frame of reference I don't get it.

It's obvious this is possible on current consoles. Once real next-gen footage starts being shown everyone will say 'OMG NO WAY NO THAT'S NEXT NEXT GENN!!!!!!11' these people play games all the time but still don't know how technology works.

Trailer was amazing can't wait for new news. I'm assuming this game will show how Snake/Liquid/Solidus are created/born? And maybe you get to play as them.

Will we see MGSIV come to 360? Odd that they'd give 360 gamers MGSV but not IV

Oh, damn, nice theory.

Yeah, I'm wondering where my VITA related news is. That'd be pretty big if this was a VITA exclusive.

I decided to look up the owner.... and despite him being listed in Sweden, sure likes Japanese on his twitter, even if they rarely use it.

Never gonna happen. Also Kojima already said it is a PS3 exclusive. It's not really a big deal though since 360 is getting Rising and 5 they look great!
