Hideo Kojima Is Tired of Being Involved in the Console War

Hideo Kojima has been the focus of a lot of discussion lately, especially between those that often try to pull what he says towards one side or the other of the console war. Finally, he decided to speak up and say that he’s sick of it, and he did as part of an interview on Dengeki Online¬†when asked for the millionth time about his plans for the various consoles.

I’m already exhausted from being involved in the console war (laughs). Metal Gear Solid V is being basically developed on PC. That’s the meaning of multi-platform, multi-generation, multi-device. It was originally planned to be made for the current machines.

I can’t help but feeling the same way. I’ve been tired of the console war since the era of the PlayStation 2 and the GameCube. Of course it won’t go away, ever.

One thing slightly irks me, though, since Metal Gear Solid V is developed on PC, maybe Kojima-san should take the idea of a PC version in more serious consideration. And he isn’t the only one.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
