Apparently there's a bit of discord over at Kojima Productions at the moment. Hideo Kojima, founder of the company, says that the MGS Peace Walker
and MGS Rising
teams "are not really good friends right now."
Discussing what's happening at his studio, Kojima told GamePro
, "The core of it is, of course, the Rising
team. So they're doing a lot of high-level stuff with great staffs. And that doesn't mean the guys who are making PSP are the shitty staffs...it's not that.
"The reason why I say they are not good friends is because the PSP is working day and night to make it even better than MGS4
, but of course they can't do it because of a lot of restrictions. On the other hand, the Rising
team is using loads of money and loads of capacity and hardware specs. If you could imagine the PSP team looking at the Rising
team saying, they have all the money and specs. That's the one reason why they are not good friends."
That makes us a little sad.
