Video game fans living in the San Francisco area should definitely go check out Hideo Kojima's presentation today at the downtown Apple Store where he will be discussing his most recent game, Metal Gear Solid Touch, among other topics. The event will take place between 3:00 P.M. - 4:00 P.M. at the Apple Store on One Stockton Street in San Francisco. Hideo Kojima will be talking about the game, his career, and will also be taking questions from the audience afterwards. Spike TV's Geoff Keighley will moderate the event. Here is more information from Apple's retail store page:
Join award-winning video game creator Hideo Kojima for a candid discussion about his career as a game creator and the making of Metal Gear Solid Touch, his first game designed specifically for iPhone and iPod touch. Kojima-san will share his vision and take questions from the audience. The event is moderated by SPIKE TV host Geoff Keighley. Metal Gear Solid Touch is now available on the iTunes Store.
Fans may want to get in line soon as Pocket Gamer is reporting Konami will only be handing out wristbands to the first 200 people in line.
Even if you aren't the biggest fan of the Metal Gear Solid series I recommend checking out the event. Hideo Kojima is one of the most celebrated game designers and it would be quite the experience just to hear what he has to say about the industry. Plus, you may have the opportunity to grill him with any pressing questions you may have afterwards. Sounds like a great way to spend a Friday afternoon.
