Hideo Kojima, the creator of the Metal Gear Solid games, has been chatting to Edge magazine and the outcome is not very pretty reading for PS3 fans…
It needs to be remembered though that Hideo is a huge perfectionist and is generally not happy with what it created. His disappointment in this interview though is more about the limited ability of the PS3 and not about his development team itself….
His biggest complaint is around the graphical capability of the PS3…
I remember saying three years ago that we wanted to create something revolutionary, but in reality we couldn’t really do that because of the CPU. We’re using the Cell engine to its limit
He then goes on to have a disguised jab at Sony and their prior PS3 promises..
Please don’t get me wrong, I’m not criticizing the PS3 machine, it’s just that we weren’t really aware of what the full-spec PS3 offered – we were creating something we couldn’t entirely see.
So is Kojima just being hard on himself and his team or are we going to be hearing a lot about the failing of MGS 4?
