A Conversation with Hideo Kojima & Guillermo Del Toro

Here's a neat 45 minute interview with Game Designer/Director Hideo Kojima, the creator or Metal Gear Solid, and movie director Guillermo Del Toro from this year's DICE Summit. Hideo Kojima is being inducted into their Hall of Fame, and doing the honour is his friend Del Toro, both of whom collaborated on a widely successful playable demo called 'P.T.' which was a surprise announcement for 'Silent Hills', a project now cancelled by Konami, from whom Hideo Kojima departed to reform a new independent studio.

The discussion is very interesting, not only going over Kojima and Del Toro's history together, and stuff that they like, but also on what it's like to work in the industry, and how their works are influenced and where they see video games going, and some insight into what Kojima's new game may aim to achieve.
