    If Konami aren't going to sell them, they should actually do something with them. You know, other than more Pachinko machines. :mad:

    I said this elsewhere, but I'll repeat it here: I really wonder if Kojima wants to do more Metal Gear.

    Death Stranding was a great story, and he clearly enjoyed the freedom of doing it under his own banner (even if it meant not having access to the budget of a corporate overlord).

    On Twitter he showed his workspace just after the Game Awards, and he was already penning a new story for a new game. It was hinted that it was a totally new story, not related to Death Stranding.

    I can't speak on his behalf, but if I'd been involved in a long running franchise over a couple of decades, I think I'd be happy to let it go and do something new. Even senior Nintendo people bounce around between franchises most of the time for a bit of variety.

    With that said, I'm sure in a highly hypothetical world, if Sony did get a hold of the Metal Gear IP, they'd throw mountains of cash at Kojima to try and coax him over. I would if I were them.

    If they want money they should port the MGS HD collection to the Switch, I'd be all over that.

    I feel like he'd be conditional about if they were pushy; "I'll make it but you need to greenlight X, Y and Z."
