Payton gives us some insight into Kojima Productions

In an interview with Gamasutra, Ryan Payton of Kojima Productions gives some information about the development process of Metal Gear Solid 4. Extraordinarily, over two hundred people are currently on the development team for the game, making it one of the largest single teams working in one place on a single gaming project. This bodes well for the game but, if so many people really are working on it, then why did it get delayed until 2008?

Nevermind - all that is water under the bridge now. We're just glad to see that the game is getting the developmental attention it deserves. Payton also hints at some DualShock 3 innovations being used in the game that "people are going to really dig." This is no surprise - Kojima has always been a big fan of using rumble imaginatively, ever since Metal Gear Solid 1.

3. The game is delayed until 2008 so that the PS3's install base is larger then what it is now. Simple!

4. Yea, Payton announced this stuff on his Podcast a while ago. Good to hear it again though.

@sicklesdawg, watch the MGS4 trailer and you'll see that what Snake is doing in that still is grabbing that dudes nuts in order to incapacitate him. ;)

5. Note that nut grabbing is not new to MGS4. In MGS2, the President (or DARPA chief, not sure) grabs Raiden's sack when he tries to rescue him. Then, in MGS3, Sokolov grabs Snake's bean bag while he's disguised as the Russian colonel and Sokolov determines he's an impostor. I'm not sure if he was incapacitating Snake while he looked him over or if he was using some newfangled scrotal biometric technique to verify his identity. Either way, when he grabbed Roscoe & The Twins, Snake had that priceless "WTF?" look on his face.

6. as long as they make Hayter say "no homo", its all good. ;-)

7. The amount of odd ball sexual actions in the game are crazy, that look like the demo vid. After the nut grab, Snake precedes to hump a guy into submission, he also gives the floor his love as well and I swear they put far to much effort into the animation of "floor loving".
