Agreed. This is a joke, Hayter will be the voice for sure.

K guys you all have fun not buying the game because of a voice actor change.

I'll just be over here playing mother*bleep*ing MGS5. Because it's MGS5.
Trust me, I WILL be getting these games regardless. Though a part of me will die inside, if I don't hear Hayter...

A point worth making too, is that GZ's is supposedly straight after the events of peace walker which would mean it would be pointless not having Hayter voice Snake {BB} but as for TPP I understand it takes place 9 years after the events of GZ's which would make more sense of Snakes voice "changing". If this is the case I would be ok with the change. I just really hope Kojima is up to his usual tricks & playing us all for a reaction.
I also saw a video of Kojima saying he wanted to get the online communities buzzing again, he's done part of that by using his usual cryptic style of teasing with trailers & such, fingers crossed that's the case here & Hayter's in on this too...

YES KOJIMA WE LOVE YOU, WE LOVE YOUR GAMES & ALL THAT YOU DO. NOW PLEASE TELL US YOUR KIDDING!!!!

Well, first off. I cannot believe that DH didn't get contacted by Kojima or Konami. I mean, even if he wasn't gonna continue to voice Snake, there would've been some kind of farewell speech from Kojima thanking DH for all his previous work on the series. I believe Kojima's way too professional to just leave DH out in the cold without notice. So eventually DH will be contacted. I still believe Kojima's messin' with our heads. And secondly, David Hayter IS Snake. There's a charasmatic aura about Snake when voiced by DH. Sure, you'll find an well experienced voice actor with the crudentials to voice Snake, but it wont be the same. And what's with this "re-create" stuff? NO, i dont like the sound of that. Im already bothered by the AI weapons Snake's been battling. MGS was soo good, when you fought mortal bosses, and got to hear they're sides, and felt they're pain, which drew more emotion from the player. If i were Kojima and couldnt get DH as snake, i would just embark on a new game idea.

The annoying this is, the voice of Big Boss in the Phantom Pain gameplay trailer sort of sounds younger than Hayter's voice in Peace Walker. If they were getting a new voice actor they could have at least made Big Boss sound older!

If this actually works, I'll buy everyone who signs it a churro...

And to those not buying the game just because DH isn't voicing Snake... Seriously?

That's like not buying your favorite soda just because you heard one of the office workers who work at the corporate office got laid off for no reason

Yes, it's a shame that Kojima decided to give the boot to Hayter, but at the end of the day, that's just Kojima's decision. Petitions and kicking and screaming aren't going to change it, and so what if it sounds different? The rest of the game is still going to be *bleep*ing brilliant.

I will truthfully miss hearing David Hayter's voice as Snake/Big Boss, but i'm not going to let it ruin the whole game for me. So yes I'm definitely buying if not pre-ordering.


EDIT: And no, i'm not saying Hayter is as insignificant as an office worker for a soda company, I'm just saying that the series isn't "dead" without him, it's just different and hard to cope with for some time, then we get use to it and support the new direction.

Even if this is a hoax, and he's really gonna do the voice, it's bad press IMO. I mean, I know a voice shouldn't matter but with something like this it kinda does. And to be honest, I'm really not looking forward to this that much anymore because of this. If I'm thinking this way I'm sure many others are as well. If this is a joke then Kojima better come clean. If it isn't, then whatever. Guess ill pass then.

The way I see it is Hayter will be used in Ground Zeroes and hopefully Richard Doyle reprises his role as big boss in Phantom Pain.

It makes me sad to know that they are not using David, but I understand where Kojima is coming from. I really hope that they choose someone who can live up to such a long legacy.

Long live Hayter!

Anyone hear the bullsnot reason that was given of why they replaced David with Keifer? apparently, Kojima was looking for someone who can sound like he's in the 49 years age range. Now keep in mind that DH is 44 and in MGS4 he sounded as if he was easily 55 or something. but KS is 46... Like seriously? 2 years is really gonna make all the difference in sounding older? This just made me come to the conclusion that Kojima is trying to make this game be too mainstream and just trying to get an audience that watches the FOX (the broadcasting station, not the special forces unit) station and i think anyone who's watched any tv shows on that network can agree how hard they try to grip todays mainstream audiences... But this is all just my theory.

The second thing that bothered me is that Kojimas "decision" to use KS wasn't his own idea, it was the producer who's handling the (still) upcoming MGS live action movie Avi Arad who convinced Kojima to give DH the boot and replace him with KS. All this just sounds like Kojima is seeing stars and dollar signs and i don't like what that means for the future of the series. Call me just a bitchy whiny little kid but, i don't want a game i grew up with to be Hollywood-ized, in that meaning just making changes just to bring in a new audience.

But you wouldn't have Snake if Kojima didn't create him so this makes Kojima God in the MGS universe.
