Kojima: MGS4 “Theoretically Impossible”
Following widely publicized complaints that the Blu-Ray format has limited development of Metal Gear Solid 4, the game’s director, Hideo Kojima, took a moment to clarify his statement.
“It is not a criticism of the Blu-Ray format, but rather of the universe itself.”
According to Kojima, it is theoretically impossible to create a game as ambitious as Metal Gear Solid 4. Given recent findings in quantum physics, computer science, and information, there is simply not enough space, time, or matter in the known Universe to convey his exact ambitions for Metal Gear Solid 4.
“Truly, it is a rather large game,” he explains.
While as of this moment, a proper definitive version of Metal Gear Solid 4 is impossible, Kojima holds out hope for a fully realized Metal Gear Solid 5, where he hopes to explore the information carrying properties of Dark Matter and the expanding field of extra-dimensional space.
