According to mad scientist Hideo Kojima, his studio is not one big, happy family where everybody gets along. In fact, there's a little bit of competition brewing between the teams working on Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker and Metal Gear Solid: Rising, with the former showing a little bit of jealousy when it comes to the latter.

"If you could imagine the PSP team looking at the Rising team," explains Kojima, "they have all the money and specs. It's interesting for me to see the team members act in this way. This was never before because it was always just one small team. Now we are much bigger."

He adds that the two teams are "not really good friends."

Kojima's right, it's certainly interesting to see that a studio pulling in the same direction would have this kind of internal envy, but that's the cost of expansion. With more people comes more chance for conflict. Hopefully the sense of competition will see both teams striving to outshine the other and, in turn, produce two excellent Metal Gear Solid games for us to enjoy. 

So long as we get to benefit from bitter corporate misery, then everything's okay.

First up, Metal Gear Chico.more

PC Port Report: Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

It's hard to know what a PC port of a Metal Gear Solid game will look like in 2014. Revengeance had a decent port, but that was done by Platinum. The last Metal Gear game to hit our Home Computers was over a de...more

It's almost 2015, and I just beat my first Metal Gear Solid

As much as wish it weren't true, it is: I've never completed a Metal Gear Solid until now. This is a series plenty of you adore playing, thinking, and talking about and that affection has rubbed off on me over the years. It's...more
