Kojima Talks PS4: Excited About Interaction

Hideo Kojima is more excited about interaction than hardware it seems. In a recent interview with IGN, Kojima states that he is more excited in the social and long ranged feature sets of the Playstation 4 saying:

I can say that with every new generation of hardware the capabilities of the hardware increases. But up to this point it’s always been very much of a vertical evolution – of course, you expect things like visual fidelity, audio, frame rate. New features such as 3D capability, etc, etc. These things are a given. They come with the new hardware.”


Along with the expanded features, Kojima also mentions social aspects making their way into future Metal Gear games stating:

But what I’m really more interested in is other ways of expanding into the next generation – a more horizontal expansion, where you’re going to be doing things online, more of a social aspect. People will be able to interact with the game through various devices, through various media – such as tablets, smart phones, etc.

Does that mean will be getting a codec app for smart phones? Only time will tell about how Kojima and other developers will take their games to new lengths with the Playstation 4.

We’ll have more on the PS4 in the coming months.
