An exposition called '20 years of Nintendo' is currently held in the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography. During this event, which is held in the Level X section of the museum, an overview of the history of the Nintendo Entertainment System (Famicom), its follow-ups and their software are on display. Konami have brought something special to this exposition: MSX.  

As a part of the exhibition, a video-interview of Hideo Kojima is on display during the entire exposition. According to the organization this interview is about a man who has played an important role in the history of the Famicom. However, as the Konami website states: "Kojima debuted as a director with 'Metal Gear', a game for the MSX computer, which was a competitor of the Famicom. Later, this game was ported to Famicom. Director Kojima did not participate in this port at all. Knowing this, why is Director Kojima at the 20th anniversary of Famicom?"  

On Konami's Kojima pages you can see some pictures of the Kojima video, but also from a cool Metal Gear poster, and an MSX computer (including Metal Gear 1) on display.

Nice to see that Konami unlike Microsoft has not completely "forgotten" about MSX...
