Kojima and the PS4's lead system architect Mark Cerny have been travelling around together since the former announced he was reforming Kojima Studios on Sony's payroll and it seems they've finally made it to Blighty.
He's been seeing the sights: the tube, Oxford Circus and er… Guildford and it looks like he's heading around the country checking out some of the new technology being developed for Sony's PlayStation platform.

Here's where it gets interesting. Kojima visited London Studios today to play their forthcoming VR game London Heist, which you'll remember I loved.
Kojima is known for his love of movies, a distrust/awe of technology and a propensity for meta-jokes. VR is the bleeding edge of video games technology and especially with games like London Heist, drop you straight into what feels like a movie.
Does this mean Hideo Kojima is making a VR game? No clue, and while we've asked Sony for comment we're eagerly anticipating a "no comment" as Sony do not comment on rumours and speculation. But will he be able to resist experimenting with the new technology?
Well. it'd be a shame if he kept us waiting, huh?
