Hideo Kojima Shows Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes On PlayStation Vita

Remote play will apparently be an option for the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, if recent tweets from series creator Hideo Kojima are to be believed.

Kojima didn't offer any concrete details in his tweets simply offering the three images you see here and and saying, "GZ on Vita today." "So great graphic!," and "Playing on VITA." It's unclear if these images refer to remote play with the PlayStation 3 or 4 version of the game, or both.

Kojima has always been a fan of the idea of playing the same game on both a handheld and a home console, coining the term Transfarring before Sony was using the term cross play. The PSP game Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker was capable of sharing its save with the HD, PlayStation 3 version of the game.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, which acts as a prequel of sorts to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, is coming to PlayStation 3 and 4, and Xbox 360 and One on March 18 at a discounted price.

  • My nephew got one for Christmas, and I have to say that I'm very impressed with the hardware and features. Makes my PSP look ancient in comparison. Whenever I pick up a PS4, I'll be picking up a Vita with it. This... this is just icing on the cake.
  • I haven't had much incentive to play any PS4 games on the Vita. The rear touch is a poor substitute for R&L 2 buttons, and the analog sticks aren't tight enough for some games. To its credit, the games run great via remote play.
  • I think it's fair to say that Kojima was showing the PS4 version, as the compatibility is higher with PS4 than with PS3.

  • I love remote play so much.
  • Cool beans.
  • I can't wait for March 18th!!!
  • Remote play is amazing with the PS4! Been playing AC4 for 3 hours on my Vita tonight because I didn't feel like being in the colder basement. Such a great idea!
  • Remote play is pretty cool I have to admit. If you want to sit with the family with sports on the big screen, but still play a game, it works out great. It is definitely different like one poster said, getting use to the sloppier sticks, but it's all good.
  • WOW. Just.... WOW. I am impressed.

  • OMG!!!! ITS LIKE BEING KICKED IN THE PILLS AND HAVING YOUR FINGER INVOLUNTARILY SPAM THE CAPSLOCK!!!! Edit: Anyone notice that HDMI cable attached to the vita?? Its remote play I get but I would be more interested in the wifi remote play. Freedom of movement and all that.
  • I agree, the lack of actual buttons in place of the rear touchpad make using the Vita a lack luster experience for the most part.  As far as showing off the game playing on Vita, uhm,,, well it's supposed to work on remote play, so what is the point of this whole article?

  • oh kojima, i love you

  • I can't wait to try this out some day. I would love to play some PS4 games on my Vita. Hopefully, most of the future games that will be released will utilize this feature.
  • DId this article just say this is coming out on the vita march 18th? if so i just kissed my vita!
  • I'm probably really stupid for asking this, but how do L2/R2 work on the Vita?
  • I bought a white PS Vita just this past holiday, and I'm loving it. Played the crap out of Uncharted: Golden Abyss and now I'm playing Killzone: Mercenary, which is $9.00 right now for PS+ members.

    I feel that the Vita is a much better investment now compared to when it first released. I do like the remote play feature for my PS3 and PS4. I tired remote play with Battlefield 4 multiplayer and I do not recommend it.

  • It's funny that GI keeps acting surprised when new PS4 games support Remote Play. Sony has stated that all PS4 games will have this feature unless they require specific hardware like the Camera or Move wand.
  • The Vita really is pretty darn awesome.

  • Really interested in Zeroes, can't wait to play. I've been playing MGS since it's original release back in the day, Kojima is always on top of his game.
