The new gameplay videos of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (in English and Japanese) are out in the wild, and Producer Ken-Ichiro Imaizumi is doing his best to answer questions from the fans on Twitter.

First of all, he mentioned that the videos are recorded on a current generation console and not on a PC. Given the button prompts, it would seem that we’re looking at the PS4 version.

Imaizumi also asked the fans if they consider the option of muting the iDroid important, explaining afterwards that he asks because it’s good to know what people think for future improvements. If you have an opinion on the issue, you may want to respond to the Tweet below.

Considering how good the game looks in the videos we saw so far, it’s definitely encouraging to know that it’s the console version. It’ll be interesting to see what visual improvements the PC version will bring.

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.
