Kojima forms a new studio, first game will be in collaboration with PlayStation *update*

Update: Sony's released a video to confirm that Hideo Kojima has formed a new studio and said that its first game will be in collaboration with PlayStation.

"PlayStation's history is one of game innovation and great new franchises," said House. "Hideo Kojima has been a huge part of that history, and we are therefore delighted that he has chosen to bring his brand new project to life in partnership with PlayStation. We look forward to working with him on an exciting new game and warmly welcome him to the PlayStation family."

"I will be taking on a new challenge by establishing my own independent studio, and I am thrilled to be able to embark on this journey with PlayStation, who I have continued to work with all these past years," said Kojima. "I cannot wait to deliver, with PlayStation, a game that will become a compelling franchise."

Original: Japanese site Nikkei is reporting that Hideo Kojima is now out of contract at Konami and is expected to form a new studio dealing with a different publisher.

In fact, according to the site, the Metal Gear series creator is in talks with Sony about forming his new studio, which could mean that it'll be first party or at least second party and therefore provide exclusive content for Sony's PlayStation machines, be that PS4, PSVR or both.

Kojima first arrived at Konami in 1986 and went on to have a hand in creating the Metal Gear Series, as well as working on Snatcher, Policenauts, Boktai, and Zone of the Enders.

Would you like to see Hideo Kojima sign a deal with Sony or even form a deal with them which would see his games come to PlayStation first?

if he has signed with Sony and, by the sounds of it, got support from Sony - surely the games aren't going to be 'first on playstation', Sony will make sure they are exclusive to them - maybe even resurrect the silent hills game but under a different name seeing as nobody saw anything about it except the PT.

Just heard that his game is not coming to Xbox. It may arrive on PC at some point though.
