Metal Gear Solid 5: Nvidia Credits Kojima, Ignores Konami

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain chapter 3

We have picked up word that the reason for split between Konami and Hideo Kojima was a financial one that led to the former dissing the veteran developers’ name everywhere as far as The Phantom Pain is concerned. However, Nvidia seems to be going in the opposite direction to Konami.

The graphics cards company recently started advertising Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain in a GeForce GTX bundle where they were offering the game for free with some purchases.

The interesting part came in when they promoted the game as a Kojima Productions title which is something Konami has strictly been avoiding for some time now. Here’s a part of their promotional text:

For a limited time, get the latest mega hit from Kojima Productions, METAL GEAR SOLID 5: THE PHANTOM PAIN, with the qualifying purchase of a GeForce® GTX™ 980 Ti, 980, 970, or 960 GPU or 980/970M notebook. Only GeForce GTX gives you the power and performance to game like the Big Boss. Experience the METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN with incredible visuals, uncompromised gameplay, and advanced technologies.

Of course nothing in this is untrue, the game has been made by Hideo Kojima but it certainly is something that could piss off Konami as they are trying to make sure the two can be disassociated for good.

On the other hand Nvidia didn’t even mention Konami in the whole promotion!

Are they taking sides in the Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain fiasco between the publisher and Kojima Productions?
