The cover of December's issue of EGM clearly says "Metal Gear Solid 4 on Xbox 360?". Could this be the final blow to the major exclusives PS3 has over the Xbox?
if that really happend, that would just kill sony, talk about letting air out of their sail.Ps3 fans will no longer be able to say we have MGS4,FF, etc.the only thing they have left is GT HD an god or war!!
we all know that Sony won't allow this to happen. Sony only has a handful of powerhouse exclusives and they won't let it go. if Konami wants to be a rebel and MGS does get made for the 360 and is released the same time as the PS3 version, then that will indeed be the final blow. i think a realistic worst case scenario would be a timed exclusive. also, remember this article: http://www.gamepro.com/news... it's confirmation that it won't be ported, but only time will determine whether this confirmation is absolute.
Well, wasn't everyone thinking Sony wouldn't let GTA also happen? Or what about XBOX already got some MGS in the past?
At the current time even if Sony wanted to stop Microsoft from acquiring MGS4, they couldn’t. To do so would take funding and currently Sony is deep in the red. Playing who’s pocket is deeper isn’t a wise move for Sony. Expect MS to try and get it. At most it will be a time exclusive.
Considering how much money Microsoft has and continues to make. Meanwhile sony is losing money and is on the verge of going bankrupt, take a look at their latest stock quotes. Can sony really pay enough money to stop developers from profitting from sales on both platforms? They would sell twice as many copies if it wasnt exclussive, I can imagine it must be pretty expensive. Why do you think MS has bought so many develops out? Which is the reason they have so many great games comming. PS fanboys can flame me all you want but I only state the truth. Sony will dump more money into bluray than it will ps3 games because thats gonna make them or break them.
The three of you above me are F*cking idiots.
that would be pretty sick, if it actually happened. kojima said it was possible but he said no, maybe he changed his mind
is in it for the money(check this out) (MS)mr.kojima you know were trying to make an impact in japan. (Mr.Kojima)I know your doing an ok job but what dose this have to do with me (MS)we need MGS4 on our system, what will it take to make this happen!! (MR.Kojima) oh!!(thinks to himself, I got'em)well give us about 300 million in cash up front, an well release them on the same day (MS) consider it done, who to make the check out to!! an anyony who thinks this cant happen is crazy.dont get me wrong I dont believe this YET, but it could happen!! oh yeah theMart whats up man hit me up on xboxlive Gno the 1
Ah man thats rich, you're funny
lol why wouldn`t it happend?have to wait untill 2008 my friends just like he did for metal gear 2 on xbox. Take a look at all 3 consoles, now tell me which is more balance? Action adventure,sports, FPS ,ect...lol! end of sony my foot.We still wating on Socom,God of war,Grant tourismo,Jax and dexter, Sly cooper, i mean ,the big guns haven`t even been anounced yet..
Well there is one difference. MGS got on the XBOX one way or another. Halo will never make it to the PS though. Gears of War will never make it to the PS. And that's the way 360 has real exclusives and PS systems seem to have not. Which one is in balance? 360 is. Which one has the most exciting exclusives? 360 does. Now there you're questions are answered! Which big guns that haven't been announced? Still dreaming? Still believing in overpromissing & underdelivering Sony? Still enjoying the 1,5 year old Killzone 2/3 CGI material? The big guns are here. Gears of War Forza 2 Lost Planet Viva Piniata Bioshock Huxley Blue Dragon Lost Oddyssey Halo 3 Halo Wars And soon MGS4 on 360? Stop defending till death. So many exclusives already gone for PS, and 360 does such a great job of gaining many. The titles you're mentioning are not half as big as the ones in this post. It doesn't matter if this would give a deathblow to Sony. It's like a metafor for what is going on already for some time and will remain for the coming time. MS has the money to burn on getting more and more games and people to jump in. Sony only makes loss and can't invest that much
MGS4 may be ported later, much later, but it will not be released at the same time as the PS3. You can bet on that. Kojima is very loyal to Sony, the first teasers were talking about how great the PS3 and Cell was. No way.. If you want to talk about exclusives, Sony has Lair, Motorstorm, Resistance: FOM, Virtua Fighter 5, Formula One series, Gran Turismo Series, Devil May Cry Series, Kingdom Heart Series, Final Fantasy Series, Warhawk, new iterations of God of War (3 possibly?), new games from the makers of Ico and Shadow of the Collossus, new Ratchet and Clank Game, untitled Naughty Dog game that looks freakin awesome, Tekken 6, Heavenly Sword, Killzone PS3, Monster Kingdom, Dragon Quest series, Jak and Daxter, Soulcalibur, The Getaway, Eight Days, probably hundreds of RPGS's, and many more that won't be announced until after launch. Don't count your chickens before they hatch, Sony has had overwhelming third party support for 10 years, that will continue this time and more games will be announced as time goes on. A lot of the games on your list weren't known until after launch.
you forgot Assassin's Creed. :)
For the 7 people that disagree with me (right now), tell me why you disagree. If you really disagree, at least back it up.
With all respect Andy Capps, 100million people dont buy a console for Soul Calibur, The Getaway and Formula 1 games! MGS, GTA, Halo, GOW, Zelda and FF shift consoles, the others just pad out collections! At the mo I think it is quite apparent that the 360 has the more impressive looking games for release over the following 12 months but once Sony start showing off some of some of the second and third year titles it could all change but there is a lot of hate going to Sony at the moment so whatever games they show they are gonna need to be much more impressive than anything from M$ just to justify the price!
If anyone buys a system for only one game, they're an idiot. I was only showing the known exclusives that PS3 has. Xbox 360 has some good ones that are known about, but most were not known prior to launch. I'm just saying that there are exclusives out there for PS3 that have probably not been announced yet. I know that the Getaway is not going to be a huge system seller, but I was just mentioning the exclusives. Now Formula 1, I'd beg to disagree with you on that. It's looking fantastic so far and will probably sell quite a few copies in Europe and the US. For me, it looks like something I'll download the demo for and see if it's worth me spending $60 for. Then again, I'm very picky on what games I buy and which ones I rent. :) Soul Calibur was actually a huge game on the PS2, so that's why I included the future iteration as being a big exclusive.
Thing is though, lots of people buy consoles based on one game, look at the numbers of how many more consoles are sold the week of a release of Zelda, Mario, Metroid, GTA, Halo, MGS, G Turismo etc, its stupid to me too but its the killer ap, thats what they are meant to do! F1 isn't a killer app and never will be, same for Soul Calibur! I do see what you are saying about how many exclusives for the PS3 there are (not many to my taste though I gotta admit I would love something like motorstorm on the 360) but all I am saying is the PS3 games look nice but there isn't anything jumping off the page and saying I must own this console to play that game but to me atleast there are a few on the 360! I guess its just personal choice, it takes every kind of people!
I mean, I never even liked MGS. Sony would still have Gran Turismo, Jak and Daxter, Ratchet & Clank, that raccoon thief, final fantasy, ape escape, devil may cry... It's possible that this game comes to the 360. But if it did I doubt it would be the death of Sony...probably.
considering Sony isn't in any financial uproar and with MS's deep pockets this might be possible.
Thx for your game sony hahahha and we still will always have HALO! And why has HUXLEY disappeared from the scene. I check webzen.com but get nothing new. Find that out 4 me mart.
mart, name me one classic kiddy adventure game xbox has exclusively? that`s where microsoft falls short and if they don`t fix up that FPS PC image then,i`m sorry they still gonna fall short this time around.
Who needs 'classic' kiddy adventure games? First off: kid's don't buy that many games, but older people with jobs and money do. That's why 360 had an attach rate of 4.5 games @ launch and 5.1 games attach rate at this time. The 360 doesn't need classic kiddy adventure games. It needs to have family/young ppl games that are just plain hits, damn good ones. Viva Piniata and Banjo-Kazooie would do the trick in young/girl public. And I know you envy the 360. It's just all there. PS3 doesn't have the alure that the 360 got. You even all want the FPS exclusive greatness but the PS just doesn't have it. Bioshock was a big shock not coming to the PS wasn't it! Now iw MGS4 comes, DMC4 also, what's left in the end? I think the PS3 will then only be shipped with a BR Video containing CGI from Killzone 2/3 shown @ E3 2005 Interested in Huxley? http://xbox360.ign.com/obje... http://screenshots.teamxbox... http://xbox360.themanroom.c... http://previews.teamxbox.co... "Today at E3, we went behind doors for a private presentation of Huxley. The producer of the game, Kijong Kang, and Jay Chung, Project Manager of WEBZEN’s Global Studio, took us through both versions of the game. Before we continue, let’s take a look at what exactly this game is and most importantly, what it is not." "When we started drooling over Huxley on the PC, Kang switched the flat panel display input and we immediately got to see the Xbox 360 version running. To my surprise, the Xbox 360 version didn’t look worse than the PC version, even if it is a little behind in development since it is shipping six months later than the Windows edition. For some reason the Xbox 360 seemed to have better lighting and the visuals looked less computer generated than the PC version." So nice to own a 360. And get MGS4 on the fly with it!
Uhhhh Kameo, thats just the start i would say, microsoft is goingall out this time to get the games for everyone, RIP spiro and that stoopid bandicoot, and rachet/jak & daxter suck @ss
If you're going to tout around exclusives, pick something like Lost Planet, or Blue Dragon. Bioshock and Huxley (another FPS on the 360 is one of your big exclusives?) will both come to the pc. I'll have plenty of fun playing Bioshock on my pc, and with user created content and the fact that nothing beats the ol' mouse and keyboard, it'll probably be better on the pc anyways.
beat from my Xbox 360 game controller. I think a mouse and keypad is desingned for, well what were doing right now, typing and not game playing, it's to strange using a keyboard for all the controllers combined w/a mouse. Sure, it's great for those that still have no choice, but I do have a choice.
I played Huxley at E3 at it was ................GARBAGE with a capital G!!!! Sorry to p!ss on your fire Mart and all that!!!!!
I love RTS and the best way to play them is with a keyboard and a mouse. You don’t get the same feel and quickness as you do with a mouse. I know MS made Lord of the Rings RTS for 360 but it’s not the same. I will agree that for FPS it’s more of a matter of preference, look at how many people love playing HALO.
I'd bet major buckaroskies that it's already been done for the Xbox 360, just as w/Assasins Creed. It's just that for a specific time period, Konami was paid otherwise by sony, it's a smart move on sony's part, 1 of a limited few BTW, but sure it's probably quite true but I don't really care, reason being, we have soooooooo many titles already coming out that I just don't have the time to invest in playing them all. Also I think a sure bet and an almost given is that DMC4 is on it's way too. It's also already been done, another that's a better possibility is that several more titles will balk away from the ps3 and decide on an Xbox 360 only release due to ps3 not being able to handle them w/o having to be downscaled graphically. Rest up sony fan's, it's going to be a restless winter.
I'm afraid I have to disagree with the graphics downgrade comment. Every indication so far leads to the ps3 and 360 being very comparable graphics-wise and every cross-platform game I've seen has been indistiguishable from each other.
The downgrade is very true as you'll see with more upcoming titles that will truly separate the two systems. devs have purposely made games that are multi platform to be supported by the weaker system, except for more avail. options on the Xbox 360. Future titles after some available launch playtime for the ps3 will make a difference. The true system strengths will become obvious and we'll see the weakness of the ps3, I promise it's going to be apparent but yes, it will still be a great system, just not as good of a gaming system as the Xbox 360. Also, yes, MGS4 can work even better on the Xbox 360. The game was originally planned as a ps3 only title, but with all ther numerous delays and system weakness, Konami has lost faith in the ps3 and it's supposed strenghts, and that's why, with all the available time on there hands b/c of sony's delays that they've probably decided to go ahead with the Xbox 360 version. it was inevitable, as is the DMC4 also for the Xbox 360, another given.
but an interesting one at that though.

MGS4 will not be for the X Box 360. Only for, The PLAYSTATION 3!
ps3 unlimate you are a tool and I hope you find yourself talking a long walk off of a short pier.
So much of a flame war for a coment with an ? at the end. You guys are such fanatics. Anyway, I always have said Im a gamer, I have my 360 and lately I have played it trough time. This fall looks promising for it and next year looks even better. I reserved my copy of Gears. In my opinion, if Sony keep losing great exclusives; in this case the best exclusive, I would have to admit that there REALLY is nothing worth in the PS3. For some reason I get late for preorder one, and for another Im not going to buy one, if I ever, until summer next year. Things are getting bad for SONY. There are too much hype surounding the 360, even if I believe its really a flawed console. To end, an oportunity to get MGS4 for the 360 could bring MICROSOFT on top like it or not. If this happen it would be difficult for SONY to dominate again. IM STILL BELIEVE in the PS3, the only things I doubt is SONYs power to end what will become a Microsoft MONOPOLY.
well, if you head over to 1up (which is basically the internet version of EGM), and listen to their latest 1up Yours podcast, you'll notice that this isn't even a rumor. basically the editors are discussing the possibility of MGS4 (amongst other PS3 and 360 exclusives) remaining exclusive. MGS4 was mentioned twice in the entire 1 1/2 hour podcast, and then only in the context of the editors opinions. this is nothing official. much like what they said: it would surprise me to see MGS4 on the 360, but it wouldn't shock me. MGS4 is a BIG PS3 exclusive, and i'm sure that Sony'll pay quite a bit to keep it that way. however, developers are scrambling for every opportunity to turn a profit on their games. pretty soon, unless their first-party, exclusives will go the way of the dodo. and in all honesty, i'm not even sure thats a good thing for the industry.
i know that this isn't true but if it is i would be one extremely happy xbox360 fan. im already proud of the system but i would be flabergasted :) but im just going to keep praying that this is true. keep your fingers crossed with me all of you xbox360 owners i know that this isn't true but if it is i would be one extremely happy xbox360 fan. im already proud of the system but i would be flabergasted :) but im just going to keep praying that this is true. keep your fingers crossed with me all of you xbox360 owners
THE CARDINALS JUST WON THE WORLD SERIES BABY!!!!!!! yeah, and PS3, 360 and Wii rocks too! YEAH CARDS!!!!!!! and don't spam me either. Saint Louis hasn't won a world series in something like 20 or 30 years. us Saint Louis citizens deserve a bit of excitement time!
congrats for that!! It was a great World Series. Im not from St Louis, but we have puertorican players playing for the team. Its nice saw them wining. As for MGS4, doubtfull tough.
This YANKEE fan is happy for you.
the first trailer came out, and i remember kojima saying 360 could handle the same thing just as well..... but then the new trailers which featured the camo... kojima said that only the ps3 could handle that... .. and also, kojima wants to keep mgs with sony, and make new franchises on 360 focusing more on online... and on the Wii, focusing on innovation.
WOW....I know that this is just a guess, but damm if it happens I guess I wouldn't need a PS3. Its funny because I was just saying a few hours ago on the 360 selling 6 mil consoles article that the only game "I must play" on the PS3 was MGS4 because its one of my favorite series, and now I check the news again and its this. Again, I know that this is far from official, but its along time from now and the release of MGS4 so its definitely possible from what we've seen lately with AC and considering MGS has already appeared on Xbox. Oh well, who am I fooling...I've owned every console since Atari, so I know I will eventually get a PS3 regardless of what happens.
++ ++++ +++++ ++++++ YEAH...!!!!!!! Go Crazy Everybody...Go Crazy Everybody......!!!!!!! Busch Stadium christened w/ World Series Win. Awesome. (Even though I'm not a cards fan) MGS4 on XBOX2? Who cares. Gimmie God of War 3 on XBOX2. Yeah Right...! LOL
until an official press release, this is just speculation. But would be very good news indeed for 360 owners if its true.
I just want to see MGS4 on 360 just so I can see Sony fanboys crying like babies while drinking Mom's condensed br3ast milk! Lol!
I am a fan of the series with the exception of snake eater which I didn't like much (maybe I didn't give it a chance). I pre-ordered the PS3 to play 2 games Sony currently holds exclusivity. If this is true there is down to 1. Sony better start giving some green to keep these exclusive if they don't want the 360 to step all over the PS3. These games move consoles. Some people are buying the PS3 just to play these games. And if they are also available for the 360 then why pay the difference.
. ++ ++++ +++++ Because they W A N T to. Novel idea, eh?
Well it's still not my kind of game, if it did come on the 360 I'd probably wait till it cost 30 bucks. Also the graphics really don't impress me, the trailers are a bunch of crap. http://www.wii60.com/videog... There's other comparisons, but that's one of them.
And about MGS4, dang does it have to come any clearer. However there's still can be doubts but when you right something in a magazine that's pretty freaking final...set in stone. I'm not saying it is, but it sure looks like it now.
Hmm.. definitely filing this one under rumour but, to be honest, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised especially With Metal Gear on the original xbox and Kojima's little hints dropped along the way: Kojima says 360 could run MGS4 http://www.joystiq.com/2005... Kojima's E3 2006 'jump in' ad http://xbox360.ign.com/arti... Kojima at Microsoft's X06 Event http://www.1up.com/do/newsS... On another note, I just can't help noticing how many people give the 360 the 'only good for fps' moniker (similar to the 'Nintendo only for kids' moniker). Clearly, only someone with minimal insight and zero playtime with the console would make that claim. Games for little kids? Here's what is out/coming: Kameo Viva Pinata Banjo Kazooie Blue Dragon Sonic the Hedgehog Earthworm Jim Rayman Fusion Frenzy Harry Potter DDR Idolmaster Or do you want RPGs? Here ya go: Spectral Force 3 - Idea Factory Saga of Cathay - Idea Factory Eternal Sonata - Bandai Enchanted Arms - From Software Phantasy Star Universe - Sega - mmo Operation: Darkness - Sega Golden Axe - Sega Blue Dragon - Mistwalker Lost Odyssey - Mistwalker Cry On - Mistwalker Culdcept Saga - Namco Infinite Undiscovery - TriAce Final Fantasy XI - SquareEnix - mmo Final Fantsy XI-2 - SquareEnix - mmo Dungeon Explorer - Hudson Soft Far East of Eden Ziria - Hudson Soft Magna Carta 2 - Softmax Zoids Infinite Ex Neo - Tomy Embrace of Time - ORiGO Elder Scrolls: Oblivion - Bethesda Two Worlds - Reality Pump Mass Effect - Bioware Jade Empire 2 - Bioware Bioshock - Irrational Games Elveon - 10tacle Studios Fable 2 - Lionhead Kindom Under Fire: Circle of Doom - Blueside Marvel: Ultimate Alliance - Activision Lord of the Rings: The White Council - The Gray Company RPG Project #1 (Untitled) - Obsidian Entertainment RPG Project #2 (Project New Jersey) - Obsidian Entertainment RPG Project #3 (KOTOR3) - Obsidian Entertainment X Quest - Spectrum Mediaworks - mmo Warhammer Online - RvR - mmo Champions of Atlantis - Epiphany Games - mmo Project 880 - James Cameron project - mmo Shadowrun - Microsoft Game Studios - mmo
All you kids constantly showing list after list as if they meant something! So cuuute! ;)
it says “Metal Gear Solid 4 on Xbox 360?”. That is not a confirmation in anyway. There is a question mark in there. This is speculation. PS- just because its in a mag. doesn't mean its always true, 1up's OPM is a fine example.
we never said it was confirmed and Kojima already said the only reason it wouldn't be on the 360 is because he wanted the game to be a launch title but it was taking to long to develop.
Didn't one of the Metal Gears come out for the Xbox?. I played it but got tired of the BS camera angles didn't even finish the thing. Can't even remember what console it was on but i played one of the MG's and the Rex mech fight had fuced up camera angles. #27.1 GTA my friend GTA, nah! i agree with you, we will know for a fact soon enough, not that i care about MGS4 but the dev's might; depending if Sony will pay more than the dev's think they'll make on both console's. It's all about the money these days not loyality to anyone company theres money to be made in this growing cash cow.
I agree, I hated MGS cuz of the tank controls. It was okay when I first played Resident Evil on PS1, but not acceptable on Xbox. I just hated the way you had to move ur character. But what I hear that this game will be fully 3D which is a plus, but I'm not a fan of the series anyway. I prefer Splinter Cell. I prefer Xbox 360 over PS3 cuz it has better games but I have to say that MGS will not come to the 360...atleast not right away....maybe a year after. There is no way SONY will allow this. Sony hasn't beed doing nothing with exclusives and Microsoft has just been picking up AAA titles left and right. I feel that Sony is banking on its big loyal fanbase to sell PS3s and not the actual games. And thats why they're not getting as many exclusives as the XBOX. If sony lets MGS come out the same time on the XBOX, than its officially OVER for sony.
Gow can't be on the PS3 it's not capable of the graphics (Memory limits) I thank Epic for telling MS to make the 360 more powerful than MS was going to make it.
This isn't even one bit true some dumb! journalist got his facts wrong or made it up to make this news and spread the lie's about it like Hideo will let MGS4 play on the 360 when the 360 barely can handle this kind of power and graphics.
Does this idiot still have bubbles?
Have no idea what you're talking about but the 360 has about 7 games that look better than MGS4.
This rumor is just another example how people say one thing and say another. Before when gamers thought that MGS4 was just another ps3 exclusive they would talk down about it. Now when there's a chance that it might come to the 360, there's praise and excitement. In my opinion there's a lot of 2 faced people on this site.
Nah! only a couple people like the MG series that i can see in here and the rest either like the series because they liked it on PS1-2 & xbox or they hate it, i don't see where you're coming from.
I call a bluff on this one, bet some prankster just photoshopped this. If it is true though, then wow, maybe M$ can throw down a few more bucks and land FFXIII as well. I don't think it'll hurt sony at all though, if more exclusives from the ps3 are released on 360, it might also happen on the flip side with 360 exclusives going the other way. Sony would just love to nail the Halo franchise and that would hurt M$ more then PS3 losing exclusives to just about any game.
Is an impossible as MS owns Bungie, the creaters of Halo..
uhm you do know that M$ owns the rights to Halo franchise right?....Sony doesn't own MGS franchise Konami does so thats a big difference.....the only way Sony gets it is if M$ license's it to them....and why on earth would they do that?
It would be good if it comes to the 360 - so all of the true MS fanboys can play it, because i got a 360 already and ill be getting a ps3 - so this don,t worry me at all, but if it should come out on the 360 i don,t think it will release on the same day as the ps3. IM OUT.
Man I hate the MGS4 gameplay I wouldn't even buy it when it costed 10 bucks. But it's hell funny to see the Sony fans fall and stumble over the last few exclusives that would possibly justify spending 600 dollars on. Although after Assassins Creed, GTA and other games also coming to the 360 and Bioshock got a 360 exclusive where all Sony fans were crying about I have no idea with also Gears of War coming why someone would not step in @ 360 and step out of a 600 dollar mistake
mart? wots ALL the fuss about?? MGS4 WILL be coming to the 360- SUCK IT IN, and DEAL WITH IT!!! (heheh) simple
You can't even speak/write correctly - why do you keep posting?
Never gonna happen N,n,never gonna happen. If anything, a timed exclusive maybe possible. That and a 1 metre game case with 96 dvds for the 360 version of mgs4 In my personally opinion, this game will never launch on 360 the same time as ps3, if at all. I dont need to explain why, thats just how i feel being a long time mgs fan. Besides, mgs4 being the last iteration of the series, i dont think kojima would stab sony in the back like that
