Hideo Kojima has expressed doubts over the ability of Japanese developers to compete with modern triple-A titles.

Speaking to Official PlayStation Magazine, the Metal Gear Solid creator said, "It's much more competitive now: if you look at triple-A titles on a worldwide scale there's maybe only ten really big games that can get gamers' attention, and I'm not sure how Japan can compete on that level."

He also said that such is the demand for first-person shooters, gamers don't really want new experiences. ""I think it's more consumer demand - right now," he said, "consumers are happy with what they have."

"First-person shooters sell like crazy, so there's not really a strong demand for anything else, and that's why [original ideas] stop being made. People are satisfied with making minor upgrades and tweaking things here and there - as long as that's the landscape, it will keep on happening. I don't see a problem necessarily," he continued, "but at the same time it is nice to see new things come."

Kojima is currently executive producing Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.
