MGS Rising, Peace Walker teams "not good friends"

Kojima exposes internal conflicts

Metal Gear man Hideo Kojima has spoke of tensions building between the separate PS3 and PSP dev teams at Kojima studios, saying they're "not good friends".

According to Kojima, the conflict comes from the principle that the MGS: Rising team (that's the PS3 game) has access to higher-end equipment and, logically, more money than the Peace Walker team.

"We have the core team who is doing real high-level experiments and alongside we have the PSP team, which are not really good friends right now," said Kojima.

"The reason why I say they are not good friends is because the PSP is working day and night to make it even better than MGS4, but of course they can't do it because of a lot of restrictions. On the other hand, the Rising team is using loads of money and loads of capacity and hardware specs. If you could imagine the PSP team looking at the Rising team saying, they have all the money and specs. That's the one reason why they are not good friends," he told GamePro.
