Official PlayStation Magazine UK: new issue on sale now

66 cover and bag

In case you missed it, the new issue of Official PlayStation Magazine UK is in the shops now. That’s the one with Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima on the cover. Putting a developer on the front of the magazine is a first for Official PlayStation. We had unrivalled access to Kojima and spoke to him about the Metal Gear series, including MGS 5. We also talked about Rising, his past games, his secret Project Ogre and loads more. Of course that wasn’t the only thing in the issue…

Official PlayStation Magazine UK GTA 5

So, that Grand Theft Auto 5 then? No word, no warning, then out of nowhere a hugely detailed GTA 5 trailer full of clues. Will it have multiple characters? Are they related? Who is that old guy? Official PlayStation Magazine takes a good hard look at what the trailer reveals. The Big Ten also covers when the Uncharted 3 director brought the game to London to show fans. We also round up the best and worst of gamings Christmas gifts, and see what you lot want from Hitman: Absolution.

Of course, the big news is all that exclusive time we spent with Hideo Kojima. We met up with the creator of the Metal Gear series to talk about his plans for the future, his thoughts on the past and more. It’s a groundbreaking interview spread over 14 pages that covers the developer’s entire career, and his thoughts on his work. Essential reading for any gamer, MGS fan or not.

Prototype 2 feature

We’ve also got an exclusive look at Protoype 2. Could this free roaming monster mash out-superhero inFamous 2? We get a look at the game in action and interivew developer Radical’s studio head Ken Rosman to see what this is doing differently this time.
