Hey! The E3 2015 thread is getting a bit busy now, so I'll reply to your MGSV question here! lol. I think when Ground Zeroes was first announced, it didn't have the "V" tag to it, and so was always planned to be just the first mission of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. But then when The Phantom Pain was revealed as the fifth Metal Gear Solid, they naturally used some footage from the first mission of the game.
I think I remember reading that Hideo Kojima said he wanted people to have a taste of MGSV, as TPP was a long way off, so he released GZ as a standalone game, instead, to give people an early glimpse.
Don't quote me 100% on that, but I think that's how it all went down ^_^
Hopefully the movie makes more sense than the trailer though, I'm sort of looking forward to it as well and the soundtrack should be solid in that case. He's definitely taken Refn' directing style though you can easily tell.
