Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes, Movie Announced

The first, and probably the thing most people are skeptical about at the moment is the talk of a MGS Movie. Konami, with Columbia Pictures, officially announced this at the 25th anniversary event. Avi Arad, the maker of Iron Man, The Amazing Spiderman, and X-men will be the producer for the movie and was even on stage during the event. There isn't much real information yet, other then the fact that the idea for a MGS movie has been around since 2010. It was originally shelved, though, because Konami didn't agree with the direction it was being taken.
Famitsu has a few images here from the entire event. IGN also has a small article and video you can watch. Personally, I'm extremely excited for this. I trust Kojima enough not to mess this up. At the same time, Kojima is probably one of the biggest trolls in the gaming industry. It's a complete toss-up.
The next big announcement made was the making of Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes. Guests were told not to actually say anything about the game during it's real world demo, which wasn't even in English. Of course this didn't happen and plenty of rumors and twitter images showed up anyway! The most common thing is simply how beautiful and blown away everyone was at the game.
It was reportedly demoed on a current generation PC and running the new FOX engine. Needless to say, those two things alone prove how powerful, massive, and gorgeous this game will be. Kojima also said in his latest podcast that the newest game in the series will "shake" the industry. Something Kojima seems to be good at doing and I have no doubt in my mind it's true when he says it. @markmacd tweeted...
@markmacd[/url]']Demo of 'Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes', started w cutscene (all realtime), went into gameplay, open world, night, raining, base. AMAZING," followed by "Snake crawled @ avoiding searchlights, killed guard, rode jeep, called in heli for evac. Sounds like MG, but the scale & atmosphere... Wow.
Famitsu was the source of the image to the right. If it's a picture of a cut-scene or real game-play footage, I can't tell. It looks amazing either way. I am extremely excited for this and can not wait.
