Hideo Kojima tries PlayStation VR, visits LittleBigPlanet dev Media Molecule


The Hideo Kojima 2016 World Tour rolls on today with multiple stops in and around London.

Kojima, the creator of the Metal Gear Solid series who recently left Konami, today dropped by Sony London Studio and LittleBigPlanet developer Media Molecule on his quest to find the “newest technology.”

At Sony London Studio, Kojima tried an unspecified PlayStation VR game. According to producer Ayako Terashima, Kojima got to try at least The London Heist, and possibly others (via DualShockers).

PS4 lead system architect Mark Cerny, who is traveling with Kojima on the 10-day world tour, snapped a photo as well. You’ll notice the background, which apparently contained a “plan” for London Studio’s next VR game, is unfortunately blurred out.

It’s unclear exactly what he saw at Media Molecule (new PS4 game Dreams is one possibility), though we do know what was served for lunch.

This is the second week of the Hideo Kojima 2016 World Tour. During Week One, Kojima met with Star Wars: The Force Awakens director JJ Abrams and wondered if he should shave his beard. Check back later with GameSpot to learn what Kojima does next.
