Legendary producer/director, Hideo Kojima, recently interviewed with Dengeki Online and was asked about his plans for the next generation of consoles.
He’s not averse to such questions as he is asked such things routinely – as are many developers – so his response was interesting and telling.
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.
It’s nice to see a longtime Sony man telling it how it should be; a world without lame, immature console bickering. Unfortunately such squabbling will likely never end.
