Hideo Kojima Xbox rumors were a big surprise to PlayStation fans (Image: GETTY • XBOX)
Since I saw Tekken 1 playing for the first time on a PS1, shortly after the launch of Sony's revolutionary console, I became addicted to PlayStation games Some of my fondest gaming memories have always been associated with Sony and the PlayStation – revolutionary first 3D games like Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil et Final Fantasy 7 to more modern classics like Persona 5. Sony systems have been defining my game for decades – experience
And creators like Hideo Kojima gave me moments that will forever be etched in my memory
Kojima and Sony have a long working relationship, ever since MGS1 debuted on PS1 and made Snatcher and Policenauts maker famous around the world
Since the release of Solid Snake's Shadow Moses mission, MGS games and Sony PlayStation consoles went hand in hand
Metal Gear Solid 2 was one of the first killer apps for the PS2, a hit version like the game has never seen before
It arrived on Xbox a year later via MGS 2 Substance, mais Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (considered by many to be the best hour of Metal Gear) remained a PS2 exclusive until the next generation, with MGS3 included in HD collection for PS3 and Xbox 360
The close working relationship between Sony and Kojima continued with the exclusive PSP games Metal Gear and Metal Gear Solid. 4: Guns of the Patriots, the latter being a PS3 exclusive to date.
And following the split of Kojima and Konami into 2015, This is the Sony PS4 platform on which the creator of MGS has chosen to release his next game – Death Stranding – exclusively
So, news that emerged this week that Kojima's next game might head to Xbox instead of PS5 as planned might leave PlayStation fans bewildered, confused and disappointed.
But there's a reason this offer makes sense and can lead to big things for whatever Kojima has in store.
Kojima has long been a game director who never wants to compromise in the pursuit of his job.
And with more and more sophisticated games since Kojima hit the market, the pursuit of his vision comes at a cost
Metal Gear Solid V would have a budget of over 80 millions of dollars, while Death Stranding would have a budget of 100 millions of dollars.
We have seen that Microsoft is not afraid to make money in its desire to make Game Pass a completely conquering service., as evidenced by 7 $ from Bethesda5 billion acquisition
Although this can also be seen in the budget for Halo Infinite, who would be from 500 millions of dollars
Ultimately, if Kojima starts working with Microsoft, he might have a partner willing to write him a blank check and give him a bigger budget than ever to realize his vision for his next project
And that can only be good news for the scope of what Kojima foresees next., and for his fans
For Microsoft, secure the services of a game icon like Kojima – and give him a free hand to do what he wants – will undoubtedly help on several fronts.
Whatever you think of Kojima, he is one of the game directors, if not the most famous, and able to face big names like Kiefer Sutherland, Norman Reedus, Lindsay Wagner, Léa Seydoux, Mads Mikkelsen and more together to work with him
His plans generate massive hype and if the next Kojima game goes Game Pass, this would probably generate a huge buzz for both Xbox Series X and S as well as XGP.
Ultimately, it could be the thing that, for many Sony fans, finally twist their arms to take the plunge and buy an Xbox too
A deal with Kojima could also help Microsoft finally break into the Japanese market, which the Xbox has always struggled with, as well as helping the Xbox team move closer to a long cherished goal
Fascinating CNBC Documentary Exploring Why Xbox Didn't Breach Japan was an interview with Xbox creator Seamus Blackley
Blackley explained the driving force behind the original Xbox and why Bill Gates wanted to get into console gaming..
Blackley said Gates' motivation with the original Xbox was to «maintain Microsoft's dominance and position in the software ecosystem.”
And with Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft is in an extremely strong position in software
The launch of new Bethesda games and titles from Xbox Game Studios' ever-growing portfolio on XGP on day one put Xbox arguably in its strongest position since launching console games in 2001.
And involving Kojima could become the big catalyst Microsoft needs to gain new fans., taking Game Pass memberships even further to new heights
