The Metal Gear series has firmly planted creator Hideo Kojima in the stone list of grand game developers. His ambitions are huge and his passion for his craft shows in every title he creates. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is the finale to his Metal Gear Solid series, and has become one of the most anticipated titles of the year. Stalwart Snake fans, and newbies alike are eagerly awaiting the latest masterpiece from Kojima-san.
While discussing MGS4 with Japanese publication Famitsu, he explained that the rather large storage capacity of the Blu-ray was simply not big enough for the game he wanted to create.
Kojima: For us, we're not still not satisfied with the quality we can do. You know, there's not capacity space.
Interviewer: Wait, wait a sec. Saying there's not enough capacity, are you talking about Blu-ray?
Kojima: That's correct. There's not enough space at all. (laughs) ...There's not enough space. We always talked about where to cut and what to compress.
I've heard of developers complaining about DVD size constraints, but never the size of the Blu-ray disk. Mr. Kojima, I admire your ambition and can't wait to play your latest game.
