Hideo Kojima, the director and producer of Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeros, has tweeted to tell fans that he wants them to play the game on PS4.
"At the end of next month PS4, the long awaited next generation console will be released in Japan. Ground Zeroes will also be released at the end of the month after that", he said on Twitter.
"Ground Zeroes will also be launch on current generation consoles, but I want you to play on PS4 if possible."
"I was talking in an interview overseas and they told me: 'Next generation console? Here PS4 and ONE are already current generation.'"
While the game will be available on the Xbox and PlayStation, both versions will feature unique console-specific content. There is speculation that Kojima might be hinting that the PlayStation version of the title might have better exclusive content compared with the Xbox version.
Apart from this, Kojima posted a few more pictures to tease Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes on twitter. He teased Ground Zeroes Toys, Vita Remote Play and Promo Box in the tweets.
He confirmed that a port of the game will not be made for the PS Vita. However, the game will be playable on it via Remote Play.

The toys will come from SquareEnix's PlayArts Kai and they include Skull Head's face and hat, apart from what appears to be a wholesome figure. He even went on to share the posters and boxes that will be used to advertise Ground Zeroes.
