Xbox 360 version.
Nyxus  +   1116d ago
That's why it says 'only on PlayStation'?
ScubaSteve1  +   1115d ago
Just face it. It's never coming to the 360

NEVER GONNA HAPPEN and heres why:
1. dvd limitations
2. sony products in the game (psp,ps3,dualshock 3)
3. apple ipod (ms & apple arnt buddies)
4. ps1 flashbacks with mgs1
5. MGS1 (wheres the xbox version here?)
6. Actual cutscenes that have "Playstation 3" in them
they would have to edit the game here
7. MGS Ground Zeroes - im betting there hard at work on this game rather than porting a game from 2008

Wanna play the best franchise in gaming from start to finish?

sony's playstations are the only gaming platform that can do that

"Wanna play the best franchise in gaming from start to finish? Sony's Playstations are the only gaming platforms that can do that"

I agree with this, but Metal Gear isn't even close to being the best. Definitely lacking in the good gameplay department, and Metal Gear Solid 2 is lacking in both story and gameplay.
Eyeco  +   1115d ago
Lacking in the gameplay department ? Have you ever played an MGS game ?, the gameplay has always been the draw of it.

And yes IMO it is the best video game franchise imo, excellent gameplay, outstanding level design, excellent replay value and obviously gripping, deep, mature, story. As a franchise Metal Gear offers everything i'm personally looking for in a game.

That said I would also understand if someone was to call Zelda or Mario the greatest franchise ever, I'm not too big on Zelda games personally , I enjoy them for a while but once i get to the dungeons its just a chore and i'm just like "..oh fvck this, not got the patience for this.", but still I respect the franchise and I would agree and understand if someone was to call it the best, its just not to my taste.
I expect the same gratitude regarding a series like Metal gear.

Just playing devils advocate here.... if they took out certain elements from cutscenes and modified a few others things, it really wouldn't change the game. Then just compress the audio and everything would be hunky dory. Still doubt it would happen.
It would still be on more than one disc, but the uncompressed audio is the reason the game takes up so much space.

Or you can just go to youtube and watch every cut scene, not that i would do it but its an alternative, what i did was buy a PS3 get a limited edition MGS4 play it and finish it 4 times and well then i sold the PS3 and still got my limited edition MGS4, MGS4 was one of the games that made me buy a PS3 the other one was GT5 but it suck and on the way i played a lot of the PS3 exclusive but the only one that got my attention was Heavy Rain, thinking about getting an used PS3 just for Beyond Souls.

While I agree that there will be no 360 version..

Your list of reasons why are the most idiotic reasons I have ever seen.

1. Dvd limitations hasn't stopped companies in the past.

2. These could be changed very easily.

3. Ipods could be recolored and re-tagged in a matter of seconds.

4. The flash backs don't even matter.. Hello! They did MGS Collection for the 360.

5. It doesn't even matter.

6. All of those are simple logos that could be changed in seconds.

7. You do realize the team that does ports doesn't do new entry games.. right? Please tell me you know that.
Athonline  +   1115d ago
I agree with what you said. MGS4 is more like a 2nd party game to Sony than a 3rd party.
Just a small note: Actually Apple and MS are good buddies behind the scenes ;-) They licence each other patents...

I love how people are such whores for attention, that they sit there and wait till a PS article posts, just to post an xbot fanboy comment.
You are seriously such a whore for attention MultiConsoleGAYmer that I bet you beat it to the disagrees.
NYC_Gamer  +   1115d ago
I still have the original MGS4 edition from years ago
jc48573  +   1115d ago
let's face it, I know I want it =). I have the Collector's Edition.
No FanS Land  +   1115d ago
I shouldn't have sold my standard edition when I think about it (Because I'm thinking about starting a collection), it was the bundled copy in the 80GB MGS4 bundle. Sold it and bought the Limited edition a day after.
SnotyTheRocket  +   1115d ago
Yeah, i was forced to get the Collectors Edition on the release day, because they didn't have the regular version. But, that's $100 well spent.
2pacalypsenow  +   1115d ago
Still have my collectors edition with the collectors edition Guide

thanks for that picture. that is a very nice MGS collection and it deserves its own shelf!

Heavenly King  +   1115d ago
Well, it will continue to wait, because it is not coming for it.
Ryan_Hay  +   1115d ago
These comments always crack me up.Cause they always come from the same guys who beg for it to come whenever some random rumor shows up, but, when the rumor turns bust, they go back to saying how shitty MGS4 is and how it's just a movie, etc.
Seventh_Blood_Reborn  +   1115d ago
Your brain must be damaged beyond repair lol
DigitalRaptor  +   1115d ago
LOL, that "only on PlayStation" logo isn't clear enough, huh?

I really like this box art though. Kinda enough to re-buy it, but I won't.. hehe.

lol you can keep shoving that Blu-ray disc in there all you want, it's still not going to play.

The option to buy a PS3 is always there.
jonli76  +   1115d ago
it could happen the xbox 720 is going to be a blue ray player as well so there cant be no more excuse of limitaion dvd
dale_denton  +   1115d ago
your xbox would fry before you could put in disc 1
NewZealander  +   1115d ago
i don't know why so many people want it on 360, even with trophy support i cant force myself to play this game again, the sloppy controls and bad stealth mechanics coupled with the oh so long and cheesy cut scenes makes the whole ordeal too much to bear a second time!

yes the graphics in parts are good, character models look awesome, however environments suffer a bit and look a bit sparse, MGS4 was a good game, but if you haven't played it i don't believe your missing out on much.
2pacalypsenow  +   1115d ago
then you never played any MGS and this game was made for the fans to close the story that MGS 2 left
Heavenly King  +   1115d ago
Depending on the price I will buy it again :D. I have 1 Collectors Edition, and 1 normal edition XD
LKHGFDSA  +   1115d ago
But they already just re-released it as an Essential game with the trophy patch.
Maybe it'll be like the Substance version of MGS 3 with some small things added.

Heavenly King  +   1115d ago
maybe this version will feature additional content? like a subsistence/substance version?
Zefros  +   1115d ago
mgs4 will come to xbox, but not this gen, more like next gen.
CGI-Quality  +   1115d ago
Which is not only going to prove wrong, but wouldn't make sense in the slightest.
Zefros  +   1115d ago
Won't make sense but if you think about it, mgs3 came to xbox just recently, i beliove that a new mgs collection will come with all 4 games later on but this time as multiplatform.
Neonridr  +   1115d ago
MGS4 : 25th Anniversary. LOL, the title implies that MGS4 is 25 years old now.
PirateThom  +   1115d ago
Preordered and paid for. have it cheap.
Omnislash  +   1115d ago
Is only for Europe?
KrimsonKody  +   1115d ago
My ultimate Metal Gear collection would be either a one disc pr one box set of;

Metal Gear (remaded)
Metal Gear Solid (GameCube version, if no remake)
Sons of Liberty: subsistence
Snake Eater: substance
Peace Walker
Metal Gear Solid 4 (this "new" version)

A package like that would stay in my collection!
Whitefox789  +   1115d ago
You mixed up Substance and Subsistence for the wrong games :D

I would say Subsistence better not end up being like the one in the Essentials Collection which didn't have Snake vs. Monkey missions or the Metal Gear 1 + 2 ports.
KrimsonKody  +   1115d ago
I figured I did, but I was just too lazy to go & confirm, Lol.

But I agree, theres a decent amount of small cutbacks & changes they made putting together the essential collection. I don't know why they do that, smh. It should'nt be an issue of data space.
sdplisken  +   1115d ago
i wish sony would put make portable ops in hd and put it in the store for cheap

i know its not made by kojima but its still a great game
id buy it again in hd
patriotZero  +   1115d ago
Worst mgs ever
Whitefox789  +   1115d ago
Says the guy with an MGS 4 Solid Snake icon ;)
patriotZero  +   1115d ago
Yes, the reason is mustache.
turnerdc  +   1115d ago
I didn't enjoy it as much as the others either. Wasn't worst for me though.

MGS3 > MGS1 >>> MGS4 > MGS2

It`s interesting to see that the more complex the story is the less you like the game.
Philosophy is never welcomed by the mindless masses, but strangely guns are.
How about the best from both worlds? Expand yer minds.
turnerdc  +   1115d ago
Haha, you imply I enjoyed MGS3 and MGS1 over the other two because (you think) the story is less complex. Mind you that all of the games are amazing's just that I preferred some over the other. Now let me go back to playing my <insert generic shooter here> since I fit the "mindless masses" archetype because of my preference in MGS games.

EDIT: Looking at your comment appears you're the one who needs to expand your mind.

Imalwaysright  +   1115d ago
Agreed. MGS3 imo is the best MGS and best game ever because of its charismatic characters that made me care about them, boss battles, gameplay around survival and attention to detail. It also has more than 2 hours of gameplay.

@ Kos More complex stories doesnt in any way shape or form means better or meaningful stories. I personally enjoyed learning more about Ocelot and watching the development of his rivalry with Snake than the whole MGS2 story and MGS3 ending was more emotional to me than MGS4 ending.
SeraphimBlade  +   1115d ago
I don't agree, but you have to admit a bad game of Metal Gear Solid beats a good game of just about everything else.
Pillsbury1  +   1115d ago
In a anticipation of another of kojima masterpieces, MGS: Ground zeroes.
Godmars290  +   1115d ago
Wonder are they bringing back the multiplayer w/o the funky servers.
Whitefox789  +   1115d ago
I would wonder and hope cause I actually liked MGO, though I doubt it, I said my farewells to MGO as soon as the matches started playing Calling to the Night.
BigStef71  +   1115d ago
I wonder if the US will get this as well
Slyfamous  +   1115d ago
Maybe a demo of Rising or Ground Zero. Hope so!
hardandsloppy  +   1115d ago
Demo of Rising came with the Zone of the Enders Collection. So I doubt it'd get that.
Spenok  +   1115d ago
That case looks pretty bad ass.
Kingthrash360  +   1115d ago
MGS franchise can do no wrong , and when they do go wrong they flip it into a right.....cough* raiden*. Hope 4 a us release
mrkeith  +   1115d ago
WTF? Re Release? Come on this crap is getting rediculous. PS3 is dead if they just keep coming out with these HD releases and crap. Why no new IP games? Why waste your time on the past? So glad i got out of consoles. Im tired of seeing HD remakes.
MrMister  +   1115d ago
Stop whining.
Slyfamous  +   1115d ago
And that is why the PS3 has more exclusives and new ip's every year than the PC or xbox, because of how dead it is. Am I right!??? :)
