Microsoft has welcomed Konami to the stage at its E3 presser to showcase Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain for Xbox One, revealing a proper look at some gameplay from the open-world stealth action title.

Revealing a huge cast of characters that includes a young Ocelot, Hal Emmerich (AKA Otacon), Snake's buddy Miller and a host of others, the demo shows 'Punished Snake' as he's now known, riding a horse, driving a jeep and more, with Kiefer Sutherland's gruff vocals.

It looks utterly stunning, and is the perfect way to open Microsoft's E3 showcase. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be coming to Xbox One with SmartGlass support.

"It's all about the games," says Xbox head honcho Don Mattrick. Good.

I can't see any awful puns about Punished Snake. Nope. None at all.

That's not Otacon. It's his father, Huey Emmerich.

MajorNelson was quick as heck to point out this game was Xbox exclusive, but he was even faster to correct himself and take it back.

This looks fucking incredible. Maybe now they will port MGS4 to Xbox One as its the only MGS that I havent played and the only excuse up until now was always "oh the 360 couldnt handle the technical power" and lets face it Im not going to buy a PS3 for one fucking game. Side note: Kiefer Sutherland sounds amazing.

@7 Maybe you are the insane one. One multi plat game coming out on the xbone is hardly any reason to buy it considering the other shit they have pulled with the console. Also i agree with 1. Your meant to show stuff to get the punters to buy your machine over the competitors so showing an interactive story, oh sorry "game" which is not exclusive to your console after the furore of its unveiling is pretty dumb.

@11 I can see your point, I really can, but I bought a ps3 at launch and was never blown away with it regardless of the blu ray capabilities, I bought an xbox 360 on release of halo 3 and I have been an xbox fanboy ever since, Microsoft don't and shouldn't need to persuade 360 lovers to buy their console, they need to persuade ps3 people to jump ship, and taking what was the only ps3 exclusive franchise that I actually cared for and giving them the middle finger as they announce its no longer a playstation exclusive is brilliant in my opinion.

its now up to playstation to show off and make me want to buy their console
