Konami has confirmed that Metal Gear Solid 4: 25th Anniversary Edition is indeed a PlayStation 3 exclusive after a New Zealand shop listed it for Xbox 360.
Well that clears things up
I propose an even trade:
MGS4 on 360 in exchange for Mass Effect 1: Complete Edition on PS3.
I mean, C'MON! The fanboy wars are boring. If MGS4 came to 360, it would be 4 YEARS after its launch on the PS3. No one is going to care. With MG Rising (Revengence?) and MGS Ground Zeroes coming out multiplatform, it would be nice to let EVERYone play through the entire franchise.
Did either the Xbox or 360 get the first MGS game? I haven't tracked which games they did and didn't get. And also, I know that PS3 is getting ME1, but what is missing from the game that is in the Complete Edition?
The mass effect trilogy is already coming to the PS3, so no trade
But without exclusives there's no reason to buy one console over the other... But yeah, Mass effect 1 is coming to PS3 anyway :P
"But without exclusives there's no reason to buy one console over the other... " Sure there is. It's why people buy an Android over an iPhone or vice-versa. It's why people play games on Steam rather than Origin. They should not use 3rd party games as hostage to convince gamers to support the hardware. If a game can only currently be done on that hardware like we saw early on with the Wii and its motion controls that's fine. Eventually some of those games came out on the PS3 and people that didn't own a Wii got to play it. Games should be enjoyed by as many as possible and 3rd party publishers should not be using a wedge to segregate gamers and force them to buy multiple systems for no reason. Sony needs to convince consumers by offering their own games. They need to offer their own online service, which they also do. Same with Nintendo and Microsoft. Microsoft should not be using its money to leverage people and make games like Blue Dragon and force Japanese gamers to support them that way. That's why we have 2nd party games too. So if that's the case like Bayonetta 2 on the Wii U then to me that is perfectly acceptable. They are funding the project even though they don't own the team behind it. The only reason I can think of why MGS4 hasn't come to the Xbox 360 is a partnership deal between Konami and Sony. Which of course is solely created to limit its access in order to force gamers to buy that hardware.
Other than the fact that the ME Trilogy is heading to the PS3, the MGS series is better than the Mass Effect series. Yeah I said it!
If it did get ported to 360, the part where Otacon tells snake to swap disk 1 to disk 2 wouldn't be so funny anymore! :)
There's nothing even about that trade. Besides, we have ME1 now.
You do realize EA announced a Mass Effect Trilogy Collection for PS3/360/PC.
I find it sincerely hilarious.....That dedicatedtogamers has absolutely 0 agrees. 38 disagrees. The Xbox fans always seem desperate to get games, though I don't blame them since new games barely come out on 360 that aren't simply a port. MGS4 being begged, argued, debated, rumored, happened so fucking much before its original launch..... I'm amazed to see that there are still a mound of fans and fanboys who're still clutching at straws for this game, those who remember MGS2 went Xbox and it barely sold, unsure if the audience differs now though Revengence should sell well on both. Sneaking-games just aren't what the Xbox audience go for, nuff said. If you want to play MGS4, just bloody fucking get a PS3, they aren't priced at $599 US DOLLARS anymore.
That's a pretty crappy trade bro. I'd rather have the gears of war trilogy on PS3 instead:-D
I guess people still haven't figured out that you would have to have a HD to make the game work.Its a must for the camouflage to work an since thats not in every 360 they won't port it.
@MikeMyers - Your entire comment is nonsensical. If it was meant to be a response to the quoted statement at the top, it was a complete failure.
But Mass Effect 1 is already coming to PS3 in the form of the Mass Effect Trilogy. Already announced.
I can't believe how many disagrees you got. I gave you an agree. Anyway Metal Gear is hardly exclusive. MG 1 and 2 was on the msx, a port of 1 was released on the NES. Mgs1 was one psx the remake on gamecube. Mgs2 was on ps2. Mgs 2 substance was on ps2, xbox and pc. Mgs 3 and mgs 3 subsistance was ps2. Mgs3 was rebuilt for 3ds. Peace walker was psp and 2, 3, and peacewalker all rereleased for ps3 and 360. 4 was the only true exclusive as Rising is coming out for ps3 and xbox 360. Needless to say, you make a valid point.
""But without exclusives there's no reason to buy one console over the other... " Sure there is. It's why people buy an Android over an iPhone or vice-versa. It's why people play games on Steam rather than Origin" .....Origin HAS exclusives and so does Steam. In fact, Origin's exclusives are the only reason any level-headed person has ever bothered with Origin ever.
Only reason I even use Origin is for BF3. Uplay on the other hand is douchy idea from Ubisoft in which it wasnt needed before but now they're trying to copy Steam within Steam. I have to be running Uplay to get the most out of Anno 2070. Uplay servers suck.
Or maybe you could just quit your whining and buy a PS3, they're dirt cheap now. Consoles are so incredibly cheap, you can all stop wishing and pining for some exclusive to get ported to your console, just go pay a few bucks for the cheapest console, there's got to be at least 2 or 3 games worth playing on it that aren't on your console, whichever one you have.
Man they really want Metal Gear Solid 4 on 360. It 's been almost 5 years and fans are still trying to get it on 360.
Lol at mysterio360 That was so funny hahaha
how about gears of war franchise for MGS lol juts kidding i don't mind if xbox360 gamers get to enjoy this masterpiece but its been over 4 years and i don't see it happening now.
X360 doesn't really have any exclusive at all worth trading with MGS4
Not 1 xbox exclusive I would trade MGS for. I buy all my games multi platform games on xbox but when it comes to exclusives you can't come close to the PlayStation I just wish they would have supported mods on the ps3.
I thought that MGS4 couldn't run on the 360 because of it's storage space. If it didn't fit back then, why would it fit now? ...then again, installs on consoles are more prominent these days...
There hasn't been 25 years of metal gear solid let alone mgs4. It is funny how that is phrased. Anyways, if its 25years of metal gear then by all means....throw Nintendo some love.
@MysticStrummer A failure? Please explain, I'm elated. @SilentNegotioator ".....Origin HAS exclusives and so does Steam. In fact, Origin's exclusives are the only reason any level-headed person has ever bothered with Origin ever. " You're right, EA is using titles like Battlefield 3 to add leverage, just like Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo do. That's what 1st party titles are supposed to do, showcase the hardware or the service. People like Steam, not because it has Half Life and Left4Dead but because they really like the service and convenience it provides. Even if Origin had the same games people would still use Steam more because of the service. That is what the console manufacturers need to do as well. Provide a better service, more value based hardware, unique gameplay. Stuff like that. What exactly does timed exclusive games and DLC do for the consumer? What difference does it make to the consumer if MGS4 comes to the PC or Xbox 360? It doesn't. All it does is make those who decided long ago to take sides feel better about their purchase.
"If it did get ported to 360, the part where Otacon tells snake to swap disk 1 to disk 2 wouldn't be so funny anymore! :)" Krypto, it would still be plenty funny, because on the 360, you would ACTUALLY have to swap the disks at that point. Lol...
Since PS3 is already getting ME1 I guess that's a pointless trade. Instead I propose this! X360 should get Journey - because that's a game everyone should experience, not just PS3 owners. In exchange PS3 owners could get... Alan Wake? I'd still quite like to play that.
"dedicatedtogamers + 12h ago I propose an even trade:" I don't propose a trade, I propose a toast! Here's to Konami taking the high ground, and showing their loyalty to Sony, the PS3 and the dedicated fans who bought the game the first year it came out, and made it one of the best selling PS3 games to date!
@ Mike Myers Bro, I love ur movies. Some of them are really funny (i mean, Austin Powers). But about your comment... the reasons because the game is still an exclusive are simple. Partnership and dvd9. Does that tells you something? No? Then stick to what you do at best, movies. Stop complaining and get a ps3, then you can play the freaking game. MGS4 in exchange for the entire Halo franchise. That is a fair trade. Otherwise is a wasted trade. Deal with it. :/
Fanboy aside. It's more than clear that Sony owns MGS4 On the fanboy side... I haven't seen any PS3 owner asking for Halo or whatever
@Aghashie I have a PS3. It's a slim model that came with Infamous 2. Great game by the way and I have to play it again with the Playstation Move. I also used to own MGS4. That too was a good game but I traded it. Nobody can answer one question though, why would it matter to anyone if MGS4 came to the Xbox 360 now? The more access the more people can play it. @Kevin Butler Why would anyone ask or expect Halo to come to the PS3? It's intellectual property is owned by Microsoft. Are you suggesting Metal Gear Solid is owned by Sony? Perhaps I am just an oddity around here who actually enjoys the games and doesn't get caught up in all this childish behavior to do with console wars or picking sides with certain companies/publishers.
Who would've thought...
I find it hilarious that it drives MS and their fanboys up the wall that this is one game their wallet can't reach. We all know a sizeable minority of these fanboys only want the game to come to 360 so they can troll PS3 owners till the cows come home. kids......
It doesn't change a thing. Next month, 3 months from now, a year from now we will see something saying MGS4 is coming to the 360. Just like we will see somthing about a FF7 remake, an Apple console and something about how Shenmue is being made for exclusively for one system or another. MGS4 coming to the 360 is just the biggest one out of all the things I just mentioned. It causes instant tension round here. Always has, alway will.
Its such an old game and I played it when it came out. It was dissapointing with to many cutscenes and loads and installs every time you play it. The only reason I would want to see it on the 360 and the reason Konami has not ported it is it would by far be the much better version and Konami does not want to deal with all the whining and hatefull ps fans. Im sure they would get death threats while masseffect one going to ps3 is a oh well moment as 360 fans dont seem to care about the ps3 like ps3 fans care about every kittle move. I guess when you go from first to last it hurt some pride and I guess they blame ms.
@jazza Ps3 isnt last anymore 360 is.
If ME1 going multiplat was an 'oh well' moment, it's cuz we didn't have articles like this every other month for years on end, having to shoot down rumors of its re-allegiance.
It was simply never as in demand as MGS4. That and the "whining/hateful ps fans" as you call them, didn't make a big deal out of not having it. The ME2 prequel digital comic (which 360 has too on XBLA) had all the most important decisions, save for an extra 10 war assets for Kirahhe or Shiala in ME3 which could be rectified by a couple rounds of multiplayer.
As far as MGS4 goes, they patched out all the chapter load/install breaks in September with the option for one full install. I did one full 9GB install when I replayed it for trophies and had an amazing no-kills run. So smooth without those between chapter 'Smoking Snake' segments. Loads quicker too. Game aged *extremely* well, I forgot how good it was.
lol. xbots still trying to convince everyone its "eventually" coming to the 360 eh?
Will MGO be returning? If not, then I don't give a damn.
MGS4 wasn't built with the 360 hardware in mind
Yes, people keep forgetting. That game used a dual-layer Blu-ray disc. It had so many cut-scenes, it would fill up AT LEAST 4 Dvd's. PS3's are cheap now, so if people want to play it, then get a PS3. Sure, it would be good if they did make it multi-platform, as it is a great game that should be played by as many people as possible, but it isn't going to happen, especially not this gen.
I not sure all were cut-scenes, I think maybe two or three were. I believe the rest was in real time.
Ppl also forget inorder for it to be put into the 360 they would have had to go change a ton of stuff in the game. They took so many jabs at the 360.
Change what exactly? the graphics wouldn't need changing at all since many multi-platform games today look better than MGS4 and run just fine on the 360. The only drawback is the 360 version would have to use multiple discs due the games massive audio files, and to be honest that really ins't a drawback.
obviously you havent played the game. There is multiple Dialog sessions in the game promoting Blu ray over DVD. They would have to go redo the dialog and redo the animation for that dialog costing more money than just keeping it PS3 Exclusive. Also the fact that snake uses a PS3 controller to control his Metal Gear counter part. Also the fact that it goes back to the PS1 game which was never designed for the Xbox system.
I knew it. MGS4 on 360 is a pipedream.
lol there's something very crushing about the word "pipedream" ahahaha hard luck Microsoft, maybe next forever.
I wonder if it's another word for the male reproductive organ.... hmmmm.
No surprise. If you wanted to get the game so badly you would have bought a PS3 by now anyway. Really wouldn't make sense to spend the money porting it to the 360 only to satiate for the small diaspora of 360 fans who probably wanted the game but refused to buy a PS3 out of sheer disdain for the platform and Sony.
So, 360 owners are just people displaced from the Sony homeland? I just can't fathom buying a specific console just to play a couple games [namely, MGS4 and Heavy Rain]. Maybe the PS4 will have some sort of backwards compatibility, but I'm not holding my breath.
That goes both ways. There are many games on PS3 that I'd say are reason enough to buy one. Many games I would want if I only had a 360. On 360, there are very few games I would want if they came to PS3. Just sayin it goes both ways and it's subjective.
Now some can sleep better at night.
While others will toss and turn, pounding the pillow trying to get some comfort...to no avail.
And some moron will still argue "It's coming on the 720, they're just under contract with Sony to keep it exclusive to the PS3 for now." Now for the "Vs13 is coming to 360" stories to start up again...
Both Metal Gear Solid and Final Fantasy series have gone multiplatform in recent years. Of course the VS13 stories will start up again...there is no reason for them not to
No, they won't argue that its going to the next xbox. They will still argue that it will go to the 360. That's how bad it is deeply scarred in their hearts.
better luck next time ;)
I don't care if it would have been released on XBOX360. But Im happy I get to play Mass Effect I X'D
Mass Effect is coming to the PS3 (assuming your comment was meant to be a mass effect 360 exclusive comment)
I am finally able to play it on my PS3 is what I meant. ^^
I still don't understand why Old Snake isn't playable in Battle Royale ! 360 cannot run MGS4, when will you understand this ?
MGS4 on the 360 is like the Gears of War franchise on the PS3.... It ain't gonna happen. We have a whole next gen of Fanboy dribble to tread through soon enough. You fanboys should be resting up for that and not waste it on rumors about a game that released almost 5 years ago.
Except gears is possible on the ps3..
Show me a PS3 exclusive that has 4 player coop in the main campaign with large playing areas and equally great graphics like Gears of War.... Still waiting.... Now prove to me that MGS4 can't be done on the 360. There is nothing in MGS4 that can't be done on the 360. Only Fanboys believe that it can't be done because they don't want to be proven that their system of choice isn't the almighty system of all systems. Edit - Wow disagres already and nothing to back it up with. I am guessing it's just fanboy's upset with the truth.
Ratchet and Clank All 4 One?...maybe not graphically though
quoted from mr. kojima himself. now if the developers words dont convince you it cant be done on 360, then i think your really stubborn. "Kojima went out and blatantly stated that the Xbox 360 couldn’t handle Metal Gear Solid 4". http://www.examiner.com/art...
Lvl_up: Uh, Resistance 2 had 8-player co-op. Gears is built from Unreal Engine, it would work fine on PS3, just like Unreal Tournament III did.
