Photo Mode will come to the PS4 version of the game.It’s not an unexpected announcement, but every post Kojima has made about the mode has been met with fans asking for a PS4 version, so it should set some minds at ease.
Kojima says the mode should be a part of the next patch to the PS4 game, and he is “trying to make it happen at the end of this month’s update”.
Today’s good news!

Should it meet that target, it will arrive far earlier than the PC version, which is scheduled for release on June 2. That PC version will also include Half-Life themed content, which is unlikely to make the jump to PS4.
Early looks at the Photo Mode show that it’ll work similarly to comparable modes in other PS4 games, such as God of War. However, Kojima has intimated that it may contain a “psychic photo” mode, that could work similarly to how he previously hid staff images as ‘ghosts’ in Metal Gear Solid games.
