Hideo Kojima also mentioned that the graphics and “sense of realism” is better on the PS4 and Xbox One when compared to the PS3 and Xbox 360. He suggested that current-generation players should get the game first and then upgrade when to the better version when they purchase the next-generation systems. You can check out a few screens from “Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes” and “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain” in the slideshow to the left of this article and his comments below:

I've been asked which [version you] should buy. The feel of play & impression's similar as it's been made multiplatform/multigen" this time. Sense of realism & graphics looks much better in next gen. So I'd say currentgen for those who can't buy next gen just yet & upgrade later.

The feel of play/difficulty levels are the same as we consider slight difference parts found in each hardware, controls or frame rate.

“Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes” is set to arrive on March 18, 2014 in North America. The video game is priced at $10 more at retail, which includes several bonuses, when compared to the digital release. The PS4 and Xbox One versions are also $10 more expensive than the PS3 and Xbox 360 iterations. On the other hand, “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain” does not have an official release date announced.
