Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain runs at 1080p 60fps on Xbox One

Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain

It seems like Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on Xbox One will run at 1080p 60fps. The news comes from the website Gamekyo, as they asked Konami rep Julien Merceron, what resolution and framerate the Xbox One version runs at. Now reps have been wrong in the past, so I guess this isn’t a 100% confirmation till gamers get the game in their hands. Via: ticgn

Rare Co-founder Doesn’t Know why Nintendo Didnt Purchase the Company


At one point, Nintendo held a 49% stake in Rare, but in 2002, the whole company was purchased by Microsoft.  Rare co-founder Chris Stamper, has said he has no clue why Nintendo didn’t purchase the company.

I’ve no idea why they didn’t do that,” he recently said to Develop. “I thought we were a good fit.”

Stamper felt that the company needed the aid to keep up with the rising costs of development.  

“The price of software development was going up and up with the platforms, and Rare works really well with a partner. We were looking for someone to help broaden our horizons.”

Nintendo could have really used Rare with Wii U. What do you guys think? I think if Nintendo purchased Rare, a lot of the talent wouldn’t have left.

Square Enix CEO on Rise of the Tomb Raider’s Exclusivity


Square Enix America CEO Phil Rodgers discussed the decision to have Rise of the Tomb Raider a one year console exclusive to Microsoft.

“I hope fans know that it wasn’t an easy decision. I think any sort of partnership at this level is a decision that took a longtime for us to get to. The decision at a studio level, we took very, very seriously. We knew it would, in the short-term, disappoint fans,” Rogers said.

“Having been working with us on previous games in a lesser sense, they’ve been supportive. [However], for Rise of the Tomb Raider, they’ve just brought this passion and belief that has really enabled us to blow people away. People should feel that about Microsoft. Their commitment to Tomb Raider is just amazing for us,” Rogers said.
