Weren't there rumors that Sony cut the budget drastically?
The rumors I heard were that Sony said it was too dark, scary and made them change some things.

Aside from the MGS tease, nobody noticed the PlayStation Studios logo at the start of the video? Why is it there?
Might be that Sony owns the IP? Not sure really. I think any game made for them as an exclusive has that logo now.

What online interaction? Getting 2 mill likes for nothing? Or wasting time removing all the litter?
I’m not even sure if you played the game 🤔

The online intersection allow you to avoid doing the endless travels to get material to build a bridge or highway.
The key passages on rain will have some shelter or energy supply playing online… so you don’t need build them and have several travels to do that.
At bosses people help you with weapon and support cargos.
You have always some transport near you so you don’t need waste time going to base to get one.
You have several fast travel builds near you so you don’t need to waste your time.

It is basically a live game that helps you on the boring tasks.

This trailer is deffo his way of giving his blessing to the MGS remake. The Handled with love close up seals it for me while the other allusions are many and obvious. It's happening. Bluepoint about to deliver another masterclass like they did with DeSo. Day one no questions asked.

He did literally shelve the box though, so that indicates to me that he's saying he won't go back to MGS. Hope I'm wrong :lollipop_sad_relieved:

Oh also I'm super excited about this, I haven't even played one second of Death Stranding, been waiting for this "patch".

This trailer tells me 2 things:
1. Stealth reveal of Kojima Productions Sony acquisition (PS studios logo)
2. “I’m done with MGS, but it is in good hands” (fragile, handled with love all over the box)

I went from "WTF is this walking sim shit" to playing 50 hours in two weeks and finishing it, I'll take it. The new additions have me more excited than the PS5 upgrade, but dualsense support could turn out making a big difference too. Now if only it was a free upgrade...................

Yeah definitely some kind of message in there. Too nonsensical even for Kojima to do that without any reason.

PS Studios has nothing to do with ownership.

It is used for any game they publish. Like Sackboy A Big Adventure. Sony didn't buy Sumo Digital either.

Dunno if it will be by Bluepoint, but that is definitely an amazing good bye to his creation. He is passing the torch and moving on.

He jumped in the box. Jump in... Box.... Kojima being bought by MS confirmed!

Fragile Box... Fragile, easy to break... Box... Death Stranding for Xbox 360 confirmed!

Box being shelved... Box.. shelve.... Phil Spencer cameo in Death Stranding confirmed!

Ok, enough bullshit from my side 😬

I really doubt that

By all accounts Sony don't interfere in development much at all. God of War was apparently a complete mess but they still let the creative vision play out and it resulted in a GOTY

I think thats right

Kojima is just responding to rumours he is going back to MGS

The trailer is like saying "we've thought about jumping back in the box (MGS), but its not right any more"

You forgot the most important one: spend the most time removing all the useless clutter left by other players that only cares about getting the useless like.

I really hopw that Kojima isn't involved in the heavily rumoured MGS project in any way, he fought like hell to get away from it and I'd be far happier just letting do his own thing. At the very most I suppose some sort of exectutive advisor who just gets to say "yeah, I like that" but I'm not sure he's the sort who could keep his distance.

I agree about him not going back to it, but HAL-01 HAL-01 did point out it could mean he's leaving it in someone elses hands as well though.

I wish they would add some hardcore mode and deep caves with some new tools to survive inside them. Not sure about sneaking around bases with an AI like this and a limited toolset

I just had a smile on my face when the oranges fell out of the box as a call back "The Orange" that was written on the box from MGS.

That's exactly what I got from this video as well. Also see the 'Handle With Love' on the box. Probably means whoever takes up the MGS IP needs to take proper care of it.

Really nice touches by Kojima.

I can't get off of the fence with this game, its so difficult to take the plunge when gamers are so polarized.

Just get it, that was really getting me down but I decided I won't know for sure unless I get it. I hear people saying they hated it and others say its awesome, I watched videos of people playing it and got nothing from them so I think you need to play it to really get it.

I wouldn't expect this update on PC for a while unless KojiPro says otherwise. DS isn't published by Sony on PC, so there's all kinds of weird hoops they have to jump through on this one.

Substance & Subsistence style expansion? Hopefully they add a portable music player this time, those silent walks before an audio cue can be lonely!
