No, I said name the bad Kojima games.
Don't apply your kindergarten logic to me.
It reads to me as if he has enough money to retire and be comfortable the rest of his life. But that doesnt mean he has enough to pay for a game studio that has AAA aspirations.
Well I think it's no money in the sense of the amount of money needed to build a new AAA studio. It's even said in next line in the article, somehow not quoted in the OP lol
Me neither lol he sounds pretty humbled there actually
There is so much discussion and hype around this game. Even if the game sucks there's no way it'll bomb at this point. Game is gonna sell gangbusters.
Pretty sure some would be vocally happy about that if it happened. Luckily DS is gonna be GOTY 2019 and will be praised worldwide. No I haven't played it, that's just my belief ^^
I agree with you spot on.You can tell some in this thread have limited business acumen or experience. When Kojima says he had no money, he's not speaking literally, eg that he didn't have a single yen to his name. Rather that he didn't have near the kinds of funds required to set up a new business and/or studio, hence needing a bank loan. That sort of capital requirement is a different kettle of fish.
I would guess he means he didn't have nearly enough money to start a studio from the ground up. He definitely had money, but not the millions required to found a studio.
It's always the translation
But the original Japanese tweet was different...Kojima doesn’t write that he became independent. Instead, the original tweet was more matter of fact. “The company was established on December 16, 2015,” it reads. He goes to write that he didn’t have a proper office, but a small temporary one. “There was no staff, no office, no equipment, nothing. I only had a Kojima Productions logo, a notepad and a pen, and my own computer. While coming up with the project plan, I recruited staff and looked for an office and a game engine. But I wasn’t at zero, because the only things I did have were a dream and connections.” Kojima didn’t say he was going independent, but rather, setting up the company. He acknowledged that he has connections. Of course he does, he’s Hideo Kojima!
Sony again. He said DS isn't meant to be a one-off.
Well, probably not hate. But, based on MGS4 documentary, he probably pissed off several of his co-worker since he demand change and adding critical feature when the deadline is near.
I'm pretty disturbed that you have to point this out for people here. lmaoYou can tell some in this thread have limited business acumen or experience. When Kojima says he had no money, he's not speaking literally, eg that he didn't have a single yen to his name. Rather that he didn't have near the kinds of funds required to set up a new business and/or studio, hence needing a bank loan. That sort of capital requirement is a different kettle of fish.
Well, you usually don’t start big projects with your own money if you are a peer in the field. I also don’t think that Kojima could maintain 80+ Japanese salaries with his own money.
You can say that again... Every. Fucking. Thread!
