Well I’ve been sitting back and mostly watching people speak about Phantom Pain,and I noticed a few things going unmentioned so I decided to share them with you all.
First off the dimensions of the Official Phantom pain screens that were released today are 960×540. The PS Vita display is 960×544. So since Phantom Pain is seemingly a MetalGear solid entry but with a V behind it which if it were 5 would be the first time a Metal Gear game had used Roman Numerals,which seems unlikely.Someone also pointed out that Spike released the trailers all at the same resolution,so take that how you will.(also against this is on the MobyDickStudio site at the bottom it has the Ps3 and 360 logo but no Vita.)
Edit:Another thing that adds to this possibility is that at the Vita reveal in Japan Kojima showed off MGS4running on the Playstation Vita,it is unknown to me if the game was running on the Fox engine.
On another point ,in a previous interview with Kojima he stated “In the next game, I’m introducing concepts intended for entirely new intellectual properties using the Metal Gear brand.”
Which implies that He is using this seemingly new Metal Gear as a way to introduce or test new concepts to test the waters. Weather it’s for Project Ogre or something else is still unknown.
But that’s not all ,a while back Hideo Kojima was also asked to head up the next Silent Hill.In regards to that he said this.
“In the past I’ve mentioned Silent Hill in interviews, and as a result of that the president of Konami rung me up and said he’d like me to make the next Silent Hill,” . “Honestly, I’m kind of a scaredy-cat when it comes to horror movies, so I’m not confident I can do it. At the same time, there’s a certain type of horror that only people who are scared of can create, so maybe it’s something I can do.
“That said, I think Silent Hill has a certain atmosphere. I think it has to continue, and I’d love to help it continue, and if I can help by supervising or lending the technology of the Fox Engine, then I’d love to participate in that respect.”
Now if you look at the trailer it seems like a sort of psychological horror Metal Gear game,and it definitely looks like the fox engine,so could this be a Kojima Silent Hill,or could it be him prepping to make a new Silent Hill?To further this theory if you watch the trailer with audio there are noises in it that are reminiscent of the sirens in the Silent Hill series.While it’s true that most of these are a stretch ,it’s still fun to speculate and try and figure out this mysterious new game.
So do you think I’m full of crap?Think you can do better?Then please do,I would love to read it!
