Wonder if there's any hope of him getting back together with Guillermo del Toro. Freeing the project from the Silent Hill name wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing.

tl;dr: the first software title created by the new kojima productions will be ps4 exclusive
Whatever it is, I expect it won't be as great as people are hoping. Simply because of the hype people are putting behind Kojima.
This is gonna rock!
Awesome, maybe we'll get a metal gear game that's fun instead of a meta-philosophical mess.
Best case scenario for both parties is that Kojima gets his wish and gets to do something good that's not Metal Gear and Konami puts together a team that does a different take on the Metal Gear universe. Worst case scenario for both is that Kojima blows his budget early and his studio goes bankrupt and Konami does nothing but shitty mobile games filled with micro transactions.
Konami isn't making video games anymore, they're going all in on pachinko machines, and Kojima doesn't own the rights to Metal Gear or Silent Hill.
Sony will probably give Kojima as close to anything he asks for as possible.
He may make a flying mech game called PWN of the Zenders.
Sony could still easily either obtain or license the rights to Silent Hills so he could finish it. From rumors and speculation, it was about 60% complete. It would be a waste of assets and he really wanted to make that game. So I doubt it is the last we see of Silent Hills. It's all about the cash.
But then what franchise will Konami rape to turn into mobile titles and pachinko machines, Ut?
You're not thinking this through brah.
While I dislike Konami's move towards pachinko and mobile I can't blame them for it, they are a business and it makes money. I am also inclined to believe Kojima is not good at project management. All signs indicate he was over budget and late on delivering. He had already had what, 80 million dollars and five years? So yeah, I think the "Fuck Konami" train is a bit much, but it does suck that they are moving away from AAA development. To say nothing of Konami's allegedly shitty work environment.
We will see if this works out, it just may be that Kojima needs someone to hold him accountable which may not happen now that he has his own studio. Plus, notable game devs going off to start their own studio has a checkered past.
The thing we can hope from from him is what we always get from him. A dude that makes games that pushes boundaries. MGSV was a fucking mess plotwise... much like any other Japanese game. Few of them ever made any fucking sense to me.
But they are fun and when they aren't fun. At least they're interesting. So I'm good with it. Don't have a PS4 though so I won't be playing whatever comes out of his shop.
B.Net: TJT#1179"Let go your earthly tether. Enter the void. Empty, and become wind."
I will add that this is a smart move for Sony. Kojima's tentpole blockbuster games are a better fit with Sony regardless since they are in the business of moving consoles instead of selling games. So even if Kojima only delivers one to two titles per console generation, if he can sell even half a million consoles, then it is probably worth Sony's while. Similar to how Naughty Dog operates under Sony.
Hideo Kojima and Sony Entertainment bring you a new IP by the creator of MGS:
Alloy Gizmo Sturdy!
Silent Hills will be resurrected as the Hills of Silence. You heard it here first.
ZOE3 is what is needed, yes, yes indeed.
I think its interesting Kojima and IGA have ditched Konami and started their own deals... Kojima obviously more well funded than IGA - but the "not castlevania" kickstarter got all its addtl goals etc. so that's good.
Yeah, I could easily see Kojima going the Kickstarter route to get additional funding for future projects. He could even do another Metal Gear Solid, at least in everything but name ("Mineral Cog Sturdy"?), and this time not be cut short of achieving his true vision. I'm personally looking forward to seeing what he will come up with without having to worry about accommodating higher-ups.
