You can check out some screens from “Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes” in the slideshow at the top of this article and the comments from Hideo Kojima below (courtesy of ComputerAndVideoGames):
But what I'm really more interested in is other ways of expanding into the next generation - a more horizontal expansion, where you're going to be doing things online, more of a social aspect. People will be able to interact with the game through various devices, through various media - such as tablets, smart phones, etc.
The PS4, which was announced on Feb. 20, and the rumored Xbox 720 are expected to come out sometime later this holiday season in the North American region.
Kojima Productions is currently developing “Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes” for the PS3 and Xbox 360 current-generation consoles. No release date has been announced. Hideo Kojima previously hinted that the upcoming “Metal Gear Solid” video game could also be coming to the PS4 and Xbox 720.
