Kojima Productions

Setelah melewati berbagai drama dengan Konami, akhirnya Hideo Kojima membuka studio barunya, Kojima Productions.

Tak berbeda dengan nama sebelumnya, namun kali ini Kojima Productions berdiri sebagai studio independen (sebelumnya, Kojima Productions berada di bawah Konami). Kojima Productions pun mengumumkan langkah awal mereka, yaitu dengan menjalin kerja sama dengan PlayStation.

Kojima mengakui bahwa dengan kerja sama tersebut, Kojima Productions akan memberikan pengelaman bermain video game yang baru dan inovatif bagi para fans. Andrew House (President & Global CEO Sony Computer Entertainment Inc.) pun menambahkan bahwa pihak PlayStation akan mendukung penuh langkah awal Kojima Productions.

Tak lupa, terdapat pesan yang disampaikan melalui situs resmi Kojima Productions:

We are Homo Ludens (Those who play).

From the moment we enter this world, we instinctively invent ways to have “fun,” and share our inventions with those around us. We are not asked to do this, nor do we need reasons to crete. It is simply who we are.

We find one another and compete with one another. We laugh together and cry together; all while playing together. Our experieces bind us and liberate us. To share our most valuable experiences, we create stories, invent tools, and evolve the art of play. Play has been our ally since the dawn of civilization.

“Playing” is not simply a pastime, it is the primordial basis of imagination and creation. Truth be told, Homo Ludens (Those who Play) are simultaneously Homo Faber (Those who Create).

Even if the earth were stripped of life and reduced to a barren wasteland, our imagination and desire to create would survive – beyond survival, it would provide hope that flowers may one day bloom again. Through the invention of play, our new evolution awaits.

KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS – We are Homo Ludens.
We are those who play.

Tentu saja, kerja sama dengan pihak PlayStation ini merupakan langkah awal yang baik untuk Hideo Kojima dan Kojima Productions. Para penggemar karya-karya Kojima tentu sangat berharap dan menantikan informasi lebih lanjut mengenai “proyek” antara Kojima Productions dan PlayStation. Oh iya, jika kalian tertarik, Kojima Productions pun membuka lowongan karir untuk berbagai posisi seperti Character ArtistLead Programmer, dan lain sebagainya.

Selamat, Kojima-san! Semoga Kojima Productions sukses bersama PlayStation!
