Hideo Kojima Being Inducted Into The AIAS Hall Of Fame By Guillermo Del Toro

Hideo Kojima is set to be inducted into the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences Hall of Fame during the 19th D.I.C.E. Awards Ceremony next month, and the person who will be doing the honors is none other than Guillermo Del Toro. For those who don’t remember, Kojima and Del Toro were previously working on Silent Hills for Konami before the company canned the project and severed their ties with Kojima.

So Wait… Kojima DIDN’T Leave Konami?

Despite all of the bad news going around claiming that there was a big split with Kojima and Konami, the gaming company is now claiming that they haven’t split at all.

This news came back up again when a picture was released that claimed that Kojima had a farewell party on October 9th at Konami Productions. However, the company has issued a statement claiming that Kojima is still very much with the company, he’s just on a vacation.

Here’s a snippet from the statement:

“Currently, Kojima and the development team are finished developing Metal Gear Solid V and are taking a long time off from work. Because the development time for console games is so long and fatigue builds up, it’s common for employees to take extended periods of time off when development is finished.”

So the Kojima/Konami fiasco continues!

Metal Gear Online Is Booting Up For All Regions Today

The highly-anticipated multiplayer component for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Metal Gear Online, is going live for all regions today.

To hop into the multiplayer action, you need to download the latest patch for The Phantom Pain. You’ll be directed to the store and if the download isn’t available you just need to be patient and wait a bit longer. The mode should be live for everyone by nightfall.

The servers for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 are expected to be fine, but there’s going to be a bit of a delay for the Xbox One version of the game. Also, don’t forget that the mode will not be coming to the PC version of the game until next year.
