Konami trademarks 'Metal Gear Solid Existence'

A month after Metal Gear Solid 5 was unofficially announced.

A month after Metal Gear Solid 5 was unofficially announced, Konami has registered "Metal Gear Solid Existence" with the Japanese trademark database.

It's unclear when the name was registeredj, but it exists just the same, reports gaming blog Siliconera. Konami was not immediately available for comment when contacted by GamePro on Friday.

In August, outgoing Konami producer Ryan Payton let slip that Konami is working on Metal Gear Solid 5. "It'll be hard not being involved in MGS5," he said upon leaving the developer for greener pastures. "But I've got the utmost confidence that Hideo Kojima, Ken Imaizumi, and our amazing team will put together another blockbuster game. I'll be cheering from the sidelines."

Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima is notorious for saying he's done with the series after every release, but it appears he's still on for the next game, tentatively entitled Existence.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
