After highlighting a nationwide JB Hi-Fi campaign of support for Hideo Kojima in his tussle with Konami, we realised this was just the tip of an almighty iceberg. What was initially just a tweet, retweeted by Kojima himself, has transformed into a movement.
People have been sending us more pics. It seems as though Hideo Kojima is a popular guy with JB Hi-Fi staff.
For context: Konami has been knee deep in controversy lately, reports of terrible working conditions, removing P.T. from the PSN store, cancelling Silent Hills. One point of note is the removal of Hideo Kojima's name from all Metal Gear Solid V marketing. As most Metal Gear Solid fans are aware, this is a strange one. Every Metal Gear Solid game in the past has been marketed as 'a Hideo Kojima game' — partly as a homage to cinema, partly because Kojima's name has marketing value.
Regardless, as part of Kojima and Konami's spat, the name is gone. JB Hi-Fi appears to be siding with Kojima in this power struggle. You can click here to see yesterday's photos, but we've uncovered a few more in the meantime.
Thanks to everyone who got in contact. If you have any more kindly send them this way!
