Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain

After many months of speculation Konami has finally announced that The Phantom Pain is Metal Gear Solid V and is the same game as Ground Zero. Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima appeared on stage at the GDC to announced the truth and that Moby Dick Studio's doesn't exist - yeah like we didn't know that! Hideo later revealed via a tweet that 'Ground Zeroes’ is a prologue of ‘MGSV’. 9 years after that event will be ‘The Phantom Pain’. MGSV is constructed w/ prologue and main game ‘TPP’. The game play demo I presented today is the opening of ‘TPP’ which is tutorial that starts from crawling.'

One surprise however was the fact that David Hayter who has gone on to be Solid Snake/ Big Boss in many titles along the series will not be reprising his role again himself tweeting
 that he was not even contacted and asked to be apart of the game. One thing which baffles us is that the game has only so far been announced on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 which surely isn't possible with how great the game is looking. Most of Hideo's GDC talk revolved around the new Fox Engine technology that powers the game. He revealed that the aim was to make the visuals as photorealistic as possible, with many of the game’s assets scanned in directly from real life.
