Hideo Kojima’s Tech Trip is Over, Says “Technology is Indistinguishable from Magic”
Kojima Productions is in the planning stages while Hideo was out looking for tech. His trip has now come to end with his recent visit to Quantic Dream.
The trip was highly inspiring for Hideo Kojima and party, he concluded his journey by saying that “advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic” by Arthur C Clark Here’s my feeling after the intensive studio visit.

He went on to say:
Human Resources who can maneuver technology and environment to pull out their talent is necessary. And most importantly the vision of the studio has to be accurate in order to embrace the technology, human resources, and environment, and step into the challenge of creating new magic. All of these facts make the latest technology magic.
Kojima and his vision was bound to Konami for as long as anyone can remember. The magic he created took shape of Metal Gear Solid and lasted for decades. It still continues to this day and it wouldn’t be wrong to say that it is strong enough to continue without Kojima.
For a long time Kojima wanted to create “new magic” but couldn’t let go of MGS. Now that he is a free bird, expect his next game to the true definition of awesome.
