Kojima Proves MGS4 is Real

To quiet any disbelievers, and to give TGS showgoers a sense of how powerful the PS3 hardware really is, Hideo Kojima held a special presentation today to prove the authenticity of his recent Metal Gear Solid 4 trailer. In a demonstration at the Konami booth, Kojima, along with MGS4 character designer Yoji Shinkawa, played the trailer — and then interacted with it in real time.

The two paused the trailer and focused on Snake’s face… and then started to pan the camera around him, proving once and for all that the footage contained in the trailer is real time and not prerendered CG. Not that there was any doubt in the minds of most, but seeing the interaction with the lifelike Snake character was truly impressive. Also neat to see where the adjustments of levels that changed everything from the level of bloom lighting to the color of Snake’s skin.

At one point in his presentation Kojima even showed a special video message from Sony’s Ken Kutaragi, who thanked Kojima for making such a great showcase for his new hardware. It’s also worth noting that Kojima had a PS3 test machine (which looked like a slightly oversized PC) on the stage with him to generate the real-team video footage.
