Four years ago James Young suffered through a tragic, life-threatening accident when he lost his arm and leg after falling in between two train carriages. The subsequent days were a dark time for Young, but he sought solace through a true passion of his--gaming. Young would play his Playstation 4 using his right arm and teeth in a feat of true dedication.

As fate would have it, Konami eventually featured an ad calling upon all interested gamer amputees to enter a raffle of sorts, in which the selected applicant would receive a prosthetic inspired by Konami's Metal Gear Solid. Young was fortunate enough to be selected, and even offer up his two-cents on the prosthetic's design.

The carbon-fiber limb is controlled by muscle signals from Young. He can shake hands, lift groceries, and pick up small objects like coins. Young has already taken the initiative to start up his own fundraising campaign, with hopes to further improve upon the technology for future users (an example being the arm weighs 10 lb, requires harness and gel, and can't be worn all day).

Square Enix, Eidos Montreal, and Open Bionics released this promotional video, which showcases quite a bit of promising progress on their combined efforts to create a cybernetic hand just like the one Adam Jensen uses in Deus Ex



And, maybe the most excitingly Open Bionics plans to make the bionic hand open source, and available to download for anyone with a 3D printer. Plus, Open Bionics is in collaboration with Razer to create a finger-mapping system that will allow anyone else with all their working limbs intact, to still operate the hand remotely.

This builds off an earlier move by Konami, when the company built one fan a Metal Gear Solid-inspired prosthetic arm.

I am so confused...

Via Videogamer:

Konami appears to be in the process of reinstating references to Hideo Kojima back into Metal Gear Solid branding.

Branding for Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection appears to have been updated tonight to include the line 'A Hideo Kojima Game', with the game's product page now also featuring multiple references to Kojima."

From the critically acclaimed director, Hideo Kojima, METAL GEAR SOLID: The Legacy Collection offers the most complete METAL GEAR SOLID experience ever," the product page currently reads, later adding: "The 'Metal Gear' series is the seminal work of Hideo Kojima, Japan's master game creator, and the progenitor of the stealth action game genre."

The references to Kojima on the Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain and Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes had not been reinserted at the time of writing.

In an interview with IGN, creator Hideo Kojima claims Metal Gear is over:

I always say 'this will be my last Metal Gear,' but the games in the series that I've personally designed and produced -- Metal Gear on MSX, MG2, MGS1, 2, 3, 4, Peace Walker, and now MGSV -- are what constitute a single 'Metal Gear Saga.' With MGSV, I'm finally closing the loop on that saga.  In that sense, this will be the final 'Metal Gear Solid.' Even if the 'Metal Gear' franchise continues, this is the last 'Metal Gear.'

To be fair, this isn't the first time he's said this.  Kojima's been trying to get away from the series since Metal Gear Solid 2, but he was forced to go back when MGS3 wasn't going well.
