Peace Walker Could Sneak its Way Onto PS3

July 10, 2010Written by Corey Schwanz

Hideo Kojima has made it clear many times that, although it is on the PSP, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is officially the next Metal Gear Game after Guns of the Patriots. It seems that Kojima himself however, wouldn’t mind if the game was ported up to a home console.

Despite Kojima’s portable masterpiece getting rave reviews, many people still wonder why the PSP was the chosen platform for an “MGS5-class game.” If the game was on PS3, it would benefit from the greater power of the PlayStation Network for online play as well as superior controls with DualShock 3 support. Those aren’t the only ideas however. In a recent interview with French gaming site JeuxVideo, Kojima stated that if he were to make a PS3 version of the game, it would not be a direct port, but in a good way.

I can not say I’ll do a direct conversion of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker on Playstation 3. However, this game was a challenge in terms of its development on the PSP for me and I probably will preserve the base of it. And if I had to port it to another console, I would add even more depth to the story.
