During the final sizzle reel of the the Xbox One count down launch event Microsoft showcased something rather unsurprising, a quick splash screen with the logo of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes wording “Exclusive Xbox Content”
Are you kidding me.......... This friggin franchise grew with PlayStation, this is just like a giant middle finger to gamers in general.....
SMH, such nonsense. It is a big "deal with it to Sony fanboys" not a middle finger to gamers. Because there are a ton of gamers buying an Xbox One
This is goofy though. Both consoles with their own exclusive content. Why not just give everyone the same thing at the same time?
Till you realize because of this it means both will just be DLC to pay for down the road. Any MGS fan that wants the whole experience basically has to own both consoles and two copies of the game, or wait it out..... Its like when bands do stupid "track exclusive to" whatever store. In order to get all the "exclusive" tracks you need 10 copies of a cd.
For those unaware, the only exclusive stuff according to Kojima at a previous press event was the integration of xbox smart glass. If it were extra missions or stuff gamers actually care about, that would be plastered on every single piece of marketing material you could find, so you have nothing to worry about.
those not real gamers. everybody who played psone knows it.
The hell? The Metal Gear franchise started on the MSX2...then Nintendo.
METAL GEAR SOLID series started on PS1.
Key word, started. I said, "Grew" and was clearly talking about the Solid series lol
But the FRANCHISE grew up on the PC/NES. Soldierone said FRANCHISE.
Two games? It STARTED it didn't GROW until the Solid series.... Why would Kojima keep the Solid name and try to relate everything to the first title otherwise? He hardly even recognizes the original titles at this point.... TWO titles compared to 4 core titles on PlayStation, and 2 games for PlayStation handhelds, one of which inspired this one, digital novels, and the Acid series (again inspired by Solid) all on PlayStation. He even has Vita's and Sony products in his games.... Again, it GREW with PlayStation, no matter which way you spin it.
This might help http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
Kojima had nothing to do with metal gear for NES. We're talking about the series that KOJIMA started aka the "solid" series for Metal Gear.
Yeah. This is also what I'd say to anyone claiming Metal Gear is a Sony franchise. People need to learn that the series includes MG, MG2, and MGRR. All three of those fit in perfectly, and I have no idea why anyone that likes MGS1-PW wouldn't like those.
Typical, self-eccentric gamer complaint.
It don't matter. Most of the time exclusive content are lame and not worth playing. Just give me the main game. MS and Sony are paying for exclusive content and it's not worth it to me.
it's not a middle finger to gamers its' quite the opposite, since many will get X1/360 bersions it's a middle finger for fanboys not sane people
question... have you yourself made fanboy comments in the past?
I'm assuming you punched the wall after reading the headline.
I know how you feel. Slightly different, but very similar to my disappointment when I heard last week that Playstation would get the Destiny beta before Xbox. As someone whom has been a fan of Bungie since the launch of the first Halo on the original Xbox, it's quite disappointing to see them give so many exclusives and now early access to their latest endeavor. Ah well, such is the way of the world.
Exactly, and I agree with that. Its stupid to see stuff like this happening. If you want to go third party, its fine. Why throw fans under the bus though?
The game flourished on the Playstation, MGS2 was also on the original Xbox, MGS3 was a PS2 exclusive, MGS4 PS3 exclusive, Rising (Not a real Metal Gear) and these new games are post-Metal Gear, the original game is already over and Kojima wants to keep making these, I do hate that they're not exclusive anymore though, the Xboners dont deserve a game like Metal Gear. But who cares, everyone should be getting a PS4 anyway, and if youre only getting an Xbone youre pretty much a moron.
You don't deserve a playstation.
lol grow up, how is it a giant finger to playstation if it's the exact same content it would be getting had the xbox not existed. You want them to withold content from other gamers so you an feel better about your friggin life decisions? Bungie grew up with xbox and they're making destiny for playstation with exclusive content not for xbox. Now if anything THAT would be somewhat of a middle finger by your logic, but even that's not a big deal.
It actually grew with Nintendo. Fan boyz always think they know best!
Smart move by Konami... that way they can sell the same game twice to the same person. A gamer buys the PS4 version for their exclusive content and buys the X1 version for their exclusive content.
you realised that sony's getting a exclusive mission too right? in fact it was already annouced before the xbox exclusive misson.
This is the big payoff this generation. Last year they paid million for GTA DLC this year its some MGS content. I think we know which costs more (Hint it was GTA). Showing which direction MS is heading.
y cause its coming over to xbox 360 and xbox one the playstation version is having content of their own so what are u worrying about
Both get exclusive content that will be available later for a price? Cool. -_-
Unless if it is DLC that is essential to the story it is forgettable.
...so it's not 'exclusive' anymore is it.
Kojima, you whore. The guy just doesn't know what he's doing anymore man.
Isn't there the possibility that Konami could be forcing his hand? Calling him a whore is just jumping to conclusions. Of course if it really is his decisions to make these "exclusive" contents then call him a whore all you want.
fanboys lol so weak, so fragile, so illogical just chill
I'm a PlayStation gamer, not a PlayStation fan boy. I know that's crazy right? a wild concept on the internet. I've enjoyed every Metal Gear Solid on PlayStation & will continue to do so as long as they are available on PlayStation, MGS1 pulled me into gaming, it holds a special place for me. I've preached, Kojima is playing a strange set of cards.
No doubt Kojima hasnt got a saying in this. He has stated he wanted to stay on one console (meaning he wanted to stay ps exclusive without saying so) to make a better all around game but is being forced to make it multi-platform. This is all due to the dying breed of JRPG as they were big money spinners for Konami keeping them loyal to PS brand.
Kojima doesn't know what he's doing? it's more like fanboys doesn't know what they're saying anymore.
He knows what he's doing, and that's what I mean, I'll leave this here.. "I'm a PlayStation gamer, not a PlayStation fan boy. I know that's crazy right? a wild concept on the internet.

Console gamers can have all the content they want IDK just hurry and bring this over to PC.
I'm not entirely sure about it coming to PC. Hopefully MGRR coming to PC is a good sign that the series is beginning to re-enter the PC scene.
This really gives me an OCD-itch. I want to play all the content to the games I love, but I can't afford to have both consoles.
Kojima is turning into a douche, Microsoft can't stop bribing
Sooooo....you believe that Kojima made exclusive content for sony out of the goodness of his heart and that no money was involved in the ps4 getting extra content. Jesus H. Christ....
I can dream, can I?
Some people are acting like the people in those old Gamefly commercials as of now.
and Kojima was talking about mind blowing announcement ..
Will be some Kinect shit, surely. Or some random Halo reference.
I'm against exclusive content in 3rd party games and I feel everyone should enjoy the masterpiece that is the Metal Gear Solid series. Although I understand the people with the eye for an eye mentality. MS has spent over 50 million to keep content away or delayed content for other gamers. But the only exclusives should be first party IMO.
lol... listen to all you self-entitled children. I swear, I guess I need to wake up an realize that this is how gamers are now. It's not right because you deserve it not the other person... SMH.
*reads article* "ahh thats cool, everyone gets exclusive shit! I wonder what the comments say" *reads comments" Man you "sony people" are the most childish little things. There has got to be some other site where the real playstation fans settle down and talk like they actually know a thing or two. You people are weak minded.
I lost hope in Kojima many years ago, he is not the same visionary and creative person we once knew he can give the contents he want's but if he still bounded to work on MGS franchise forever he will loose my respect forever... he should try new things new ideas like ND and many other devs are doin... i don't care about MGS anymore...
Glad that both console can enjoy the goodness! :)
