Kojima Talks Switching Controls and Consoles for MGS5: “Different Frame Rate Changes the Feel of Realism”

It may be the day after Christmas (in Japan), but Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Director Hideo Kojima seems to be still hard at work on the game, and he gave us a glimpse on his daily routine checking the game.

First of all, he mentioned that it’s  annoying to continuously adjust for four different control schemes while checking the game every day.

Kojima2_2 Kojima2_3Switching between all those different controllers must indeed be quite challenging, and I wonder if the sudden frame rate changes make the difference between 30 and 60 FPS more visible. Luckily, as players, we have the option to choose one version and stick with it.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
