    Most people are assuming this is MGSV since the title fits in the trailer,

    There is speculation that it might be for the Vita. To quote a post from another site,

    Official screenshots were released in 960x540. The Vita's resolution is 960x544.

    And Yoshida did say.

    Kojima is indeed a master troll.

    It's rumored to be a "viral teaser" for MGS: Ground Zeroes

    As "limited" as it may seem from the trailer I can assure you the Vita can't look this good.

    Nevermind, it looks great, I don't know what you're talking about.

    Well, if anyone would go through all the effort of creating a fake developer just to promote something entirely different, it would be Kojima.

    I didn't care for it, it looks like another movie and it just looked like a lot of senseless victimisation and violence.

    Wait a minute if this is MGSV then what the fuck is ground zeroes?
    Also wouldn't it be extremely retarded to make a sequel to a popular series a fucking vita exclusive?

    If this holds any truth to it, assuming it's for vita sony must have paid big, VERY BIG to promote vita with this.

    Do you have to add such complete fucking shit to your news posts?

    But on topic and without the whole Vita hate boner, it looks exactly like the Snake of Ground Zeroes... Although it would be a bit weird to announce a new game under a new name only to have it be a teaser for another trailer.

    EDIT: Also, I'm sure there's some sort of Moby Dick-esque story you could fit in here.

    It does sound, with the use of those words, like you're saying "doodz doodz, look it's so fucking ugly... look how technically lacking it is... look how bad the models are.. got to be the sucking vita"... However I do think that you meant it like:
    "Comparing the amount of decals, and the lighting effects with the ps3's capabillities, it looks like this would be for the Vita. Also the polygon count seen in his face geometry represent the closer to vita standards."

    Try to use a more neutral tone in the news posts, because they tend to be a little twisted, even if it maybe isn't your intent.

    lol, I didn't even write that. It's a quote from a post on some other site that illustrates why it might be for the Vita.

    And honestly if it was for the system, I would be impressed. Kojima's team does know how to get the most out of systems (see Naked Snake 3DS demo at E3 2010, MGS4 25FPS demo on Vita).

    But if Guild seriously gets offended by this, then he's a pissy shit that needs to relax and go outside. Just sayin'.

    Basically what I would say nicer than I would ever say it.

    Also this Vita thing is still HIGHLY a rumor. I haven't seen much news towards it. The best evidence I could give is that the engine looks a lot like the Fox Engine that Kojima showed all those times and that Fox is claimed to be able to run on the Vita.

    Even on the note of Yoshida saying there is a point to watch the show as a Vita owner, Sound Shapes did win Best Handheld Game so that could explain it.

    EDIT: And if you are going to post content from a site, first off cite it unless the link is against the rules, or at least omit the obvious rabblerousing.

    Also I'm guessing the site is shit either way.

    Oooups, sorry, I missed that part, I'm still not used to the new design and thought it was a normal p-tag from before (and I missed the text where you said it was a quote) ;)
    And I actually think Guild missed that too, and was referring to those quotes as well.

    EDIT: This is the supposed developers website: http://www.mobydickstudio.se/en/about-us/ and they're Swedish? haha (the Swedish used on the page sounds natural and not machine translated just to make a fake developer without putting effort into it atleast)

    I didn't see the link to the other site and I thought soulx just added his own "flavor" of commentary with photos from another site.

    My bad, my mistake, let's move on.

    EDIT:

    Also, now it's time for the great soldier who lost everything, and the one Snake who had no choice but to keep it all together.

    What I'm curious about is: what is up with the prosthetic?

    Neither Solid Snake nor The Big Boss lost any limbs. So... is it Liquid Snake? Maybe he survived post-Metal Gear Solid? I mean it wouldn't explain Volgin but it'd explain Psycho Mantis.

    Revolver Ocelot also lost a limb in Metal Gear Solid but this has to be a Snake. So either Naked, Solid, Liquid, or Solidus.

    See second picture, he's leaning on a yellow canister with hook-like appendages. That's his arm.

    At least, I think it is. I can't be bothered to watch the vid.

    If i remember correctly, Revolver Ocelot lost his right arm to the Cyborg Ninja, taking Liquid's right arm after his death and surgically attaching it to his body. If Kojima was going for consistency, it most likely wouldn't be either of these two, as the man in the trailer is missing his left arm.

    Its rumored that a missing arm may be another one of (what appears to be many) hallucinations throughout the trailer... all which seem to begin after the two escapees encounter the Psycho-Mantis-esqe character standing at the far end of the hallway (hallway bursts into flames, dream-like scenes start rolling in). (Note: A little information about what Phantom Pain really is and how it most likely is referring to the missing limb, as well as the character's struggle to use his body in the earlier scenes of the trailer. Also seems to be defined as "pain that really isn't there" for the most part, perhaps drawing connections to the events being a giant hallucination, not really happening, brought on by Psycho-Mantis-thing etc.)

    Also, does anybody know what the female voice at the last 2 seconds of the entire trailer says? (after the screen is already black)
    I can't seem to find information about that anywhere.

    Lastly, I pray this isn't for the Vita. It looks really interesting, but if its a Vita exclusive... I fear many MGS fans will miss out. :(
