Hideo Kojima has said it's "interesting" the relationship between the two Metal Gear Solid teams, they're "not good friends" right now because of some envy over Rising.
The PSP team is "working day and night" to deliver something better than MGS4, but Rising's team have "loads of money" and much less technical restrictions to hurdle through.
"The core of it is, of course, the Rising team. So they're doing a lot of high-level stuff with great staffs. And that doesn't mean the guys who are making PSP are the shitty staffs...it's not that," Kojima-san tells , talking about Kojima's big happenings today.
"However, 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, but in Kojima Productions and with Rising that is what's happening right now."
"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," he continued.
"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."
"It's interesting for me to see the team members act in this way. This was never before because it was always just one small team. Now we are much bigger. So it's really interesting for me to watch the team right now."
Right now team Peace Walker are toiling away on a trailer for the PSP title. "We give our best and think we did great, it looks great. But when we look at the Rising team we say, should we really keep creating PSP? Because the Rising graphics are so high quality."
