Did You Know?
The codename of the character "Major Tom" is a reference to the 1969 song "Space Oddity" by David Bowie
, which is about an astronaut called Major Tom. In the game, Major Tom is even asked "Can you hear me, Major Tom?" This phrase is part of the song's lyrics. Major Tom explains later in the game that his codename was taken from the movie The Great Escape. In the movie the prisoners had three names for the three tunnels they built, Tom, Dick and Harry. Major Tom explains that he mistakenly identified the tunnel named Tom as the one the prisoners escaped from. Tom and Dick were the tunnels that were discovered by the Nazis. Instead of asking Snake to call him Major Harry, he just shrugs it off and changes his codename back to Major Zero. See more
During the Virtuous Mission, The Boss' hair is seen as shoulder length, however a only week later at the very start of Operation Snake Eater, her hair is long enough to be put into a pony tail and it extends well past her shoulders. See more
After the end of World War II, the world was split into two - East and West. This marked the beginning of the era called the Cold War.
The title sequence doesn't appear at the beginning of the game - it appears when the Virtuous Mission ends (which is well into the game). If you save anytime after this point, the sequence will appear at the beginning the next time you play. See more
