Ever since Metal Gear Solid revived Hideo Kojima's stealth action series for a new generation of consoles, the franchise has been closely linked with the PlayStation. While various ports and spin-offs have made their way to other consoles, the core series has stayed SONY loyal.

The recent announcement of Metal Gear Solid V, which will be released as two interlinked games, The Phantom Pain and Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, represents the first time that a major new Solid Snake game will debut on multiple consoles at the same time.

Will Kojima ever go back to being a one-console developer? That's what Edge magazine asked him. "It's a tough question to answer," he answered. "Obviously, I do like SONY, I respect them and I have a lot of things in common with their way of thinking. I think the future of gaming is with cloud technology and cloud gaming.

"I love SONY, I have a SONY camera, but I think if you're going to enter the cloud generation then there will be a lot of different devices involved and a lot of different ways to interact with that game world. I don't want to limit it to any one platform."

That's got to be good news for gamers, particularly with new consoles on the horizon from both SONY and Microsoft.

The Phantom Pain and Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes are in development now, with release details still to be confirmed.
