Soooo, according to an interview with Kotaku, it appears that Ground Zeroes, the prologue chapter to Metal Gear Solid 5, was originally planned to be released on both the PlayStation 3 and PSP before it made the jump to the current and next-generation consoles. I must admit, having my MGS titles on the PSP would have been awesome — as both Portable Ops and Peace Walker are just PLAIN AWESOME! According to series producer Hideo Kojima:
