If you missed out on playing PT when it was available, now's your chance to get your hands on the canceled project's demo. Follow a detailed guide here, but know that it's not exactly legal to do. Sony prohibits the use of third party/sharing apps, but your risk of being banned is pretty low.

Japan's Nikkei Newspaper is reporting that Hideo Kojima's days at Konami are finally done, so we can all be free from the emotional roller coaster that has been rumors of his departure from the game company.

After countless reports of mistreatment, weird branding moves that minimized Kojima's involvement in his own series, and that one time Konami tried to pretend he was just on vacation, it looks like Kojima's really left Konami, and he's starting his own company!

From Nikkei, translated by NeoGAF user Zefah:

Kojima Hideo, a famous video game creator known for the Metal Gear series has left Konami Digital Entertainment as of December 15th. He will form a new company where he will continue developing video games, with plans to release on platforms such as Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE)'s PlayStation. He is forming the new company with people who worked under him at Konami. The rights to the Metal Gear series, for which he is most known, remain at Konami, so he will begin working on an all new title. Final negotiations with SCE are underway for this new game to debut on PlayStation.


I for one can't wait to see what he does with a new series. What about you?

The New Yorker published a piece on the reasons for Hideo Kojima's departure from Konami, and now the game company is denying he's even gone. According to Konami, Kojima is just taking a long vacation now that Metal Gear Solid V is done. On a technicality, they could be correct; supposedly, Kojima's contract with Konami goes through December, so he could still be an employee there if his contract isn't broken.

Konami also claims no knowledge of the photo above, which is supposedly his going away party that took place on October 9th.
