Hideo Kojima Shows Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Actually Running on PS4

Legendary Metal Gear Solid director Hideo Kojima has been testing the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes lately, and today he showcased something PS4 fans will possibly appreciate.

Apparently the code is already running on Sony’s new console and Kojima-san tweeted a picture of the dashboard ready to launch the game, followed  by what seems to be either a loading screen or the initial splash screen (you can see that one below).

The first picture was accompanied by the line “Today too “I start,” in Japanese, while the s second came with a simple “Begin.”

Unfortunately Kazuhira “Kaz” Miller will probably disappear from the same screens in the western versions of the game just as he did from the box art.

Update: The English versions of the same tweets included Kojima’s own translation: “Here we “begin” again today.” And “And starting.” That probably identifies the second image as the initial splash screen, that could possibly be a work in progress.

    “Unfortunately Kazuhira “Kaz” Miller will probably disappear from the same screens in the western versions of the game just as he did from the box art.”

    welp that sucks, seriously why oh why did you do this Kojima-san??

    • Daniel Dorestant

      You really care?

      • Giuseppe Nelva

        Personally I do. One, because Kaz is a really cool character, two because the cover looks a lot better with him.

        I don’t care enough to not buy the game, for sure, but I do care enough to be a bit disappointed, especially because the reason is “oh, westerners don’t know who Kaz is”

          But….. if you played past games-you should know who kaz is right? I’m sure plenty of people in the west played MGS:Peace Walker etc…. Still wondering how long this games going to be, better be worth the £, also hope the main game is a year away at most maybe a year and a half-really want it by summer 2015.

          So I am new to the MGS realm (yeah, I know, ridiculous). I have this game pre-ordered but I’ve been hearing that this is just going to be a glorified demo. What are your thoughts on that?

          • Anime10121

            Its NOT a demo! It will have its own story and is a Prologue to MGSV: The Phantom Pain (it takes place ten years before it). It also will be the first glimpse of the evolution in gameplay and open world, that TPP will expand upon on its release.

          • Gavin

            Cool, thanks for the info. That’s what I was hoping for. I wouldn’t have cancelled my pre-order either way.

        A true MGS fan would care.

        • Daniel Dorestant

          No dude…

          I own every single metal gear game, a bunch of collectibles, read that whole MGS encyclopedia… Beat almost every MGS, more than once…. The list goes on…

          And I still don’t care

    • SilentHashassin

      We will still figure out who the guy is if he really indeed is that important. You could have a panda eating cereal as the logo for all I care.

      • PrinceHeir

        lol clearly you haven’t played the MGS series or Peace Walker to know how important Kaz is.

      • extermin8or2

        He is to Big Boss/Naked Snake what Otacon is to Solid Snake I’d say…

      • Disqus_S

        Or a Giraffe getting a blowjob like the cover of Resident Evil 6.

  • Opt1kon

    This game is going to be so much fun, I can’t wait for march

  • Jessie Bristol

    I would hope the game was running on PS4 considering Ground Zeroes comes out March 18th for PS4 and Xbox One.

    • spideynut71

      Don’t be shocked if it misses that date, and slips to the 2nd half of 2014.

      • Anime10121

        Dont you DARE suggest that >:(

        I need this game NOW 😛

  • Thomas Cai Jinzhan

    I havent played Peace Walker yet…but is Kaz Miller and Master Miller the same person?

    • Aaron Klassen


  • Solid Snake

    I manage to pre-order this for £25 on PS4! I cant wait. Hopefully its not just a glorified demo, and is at least 8-10 hours long…

    • bowserslovechild

      I hope for this too, but I am a cautious……

  • bluex610

    MGS 4 was one of my favorite games on the PS3, I know I’m going to enjoy this one. But not sure if I should buy GZ. I’ll see what it offers in terms of story. Hopefully at least 6+ Hours of content.

  • CCM

    Come on Hideo, why not a Sony TV/monitor? 😉 Gotta be careful to stay as neutral as possible I guess. PS4 controller, Kinect and the tie-breaker a Sharp monitor so as to not play favorites…clever.
