The creative is not convinced with the direction that the entertainment is taking and expresses fear that users will lose access to content.
It is not a new debate. For several years we have had a certain controversy about the preferences of the players and where the sector is heading with the use of the digital content. While it is true that a few years ago it seemed impossible for physical games to cease to exist, the truth is that the convenience of digital platforms makes more and more players bet on it. In fact, both PS5 and Xbox Series have versions without a disc player.
Kojima talks about the fear of losing access to certain digital content due to future eventsWithin this slope of opinions has spoken an authorized voice such as that of Hideo Kojima, creator of the saga Metal Gear or Death Stranding director. The Japanese creative has used Twitter to voice his concerns about a fully digital future, marking the point that any such property can be seized from consumers if an unprecedented event on a global scale occurs.
“Whenever there is a major change or event in the world, country, government, idea or trend, access to it can be suddenly cut off. If this happens, we will not be able to freely access the movies, books or music that we love.. It would be like not having them and I am worried about it. It’s not greed, ”Kojima says in a thread with two tweets.
As in everything, each person will have a different opinion, and also the Japanese genius extrapolates it to other media far from video games, such as television or music, where there are more and more digital platforms that are more comfortable, but they take away that feeling of belonging that a physical product brings. Hideo Kojima’s next work will be Death Stranding Director’s Cut, which will be available on September 24.
