The internet was aflutter with rumours this weekend, as reports speculated that the massive PlayStation 3 Metal Gear Solid instalment, Guns of the Patriots was stealthing its way over to Xbox 360 - rumours that Konami has since debunked to CVG.
even IF metal gear gets released on teh 360, snake would find himself WAY-DOWN the pecking order of games i'd be playing!!!!
snake moves like a secret agent suffering from cerible paulsy(no offence to any sufferers, but you know what i mean)!!!!!!!!
my grandads got a better framerate than snake. he's 78 fukin years old!!!!
seems like kojima's been too busy wankin with his otaku friends instead of dev'ing the ULTIMATE mgs installment!!!!
the truth of the matter is - 360 DON'T need mgs!!!!
splinter cell MORE than matches mgs toe to toe when it comes to espionage, stealth and action!!!
it's COLE baby!!!!!!!!!!!!
true mgs aint all that great, ive never been a huge fan of stealth games, but i gotta say splinter cell was rubbish! dunno why those games keep getting good scores, specially the dodgy az 360 version! i hate splinter cell! but still love my 360! :p
what is wrong with u people?? 1day ago ya was jumpin 2 the rough tops when ya hurd the rumor and now ya act like it was'nt something, get ur act 2gether ya start actin more like bill gates with his boggy up his nose.. damn..
now that was sad it did'nt happen, not becus of u s*ckers but cus of my friend, he wanted 2 experience that game on his 360, guese it'll come one day...
we admit mgs aint all that great, just like devil may cry is lame too, but thats about all ps3 fans have to crow about so it would be funny az hell if they went to 360, sony will get hell when elvian bioshock mass effect etc come out, and guess what...you CANT have em!
Yeah, the 360 don't need it but, it would have be great to have it.
Splinter cell is good but it's no MGS.
sorry sh*t happends ...yup!!
You cannot win them all. And it should not matter so much to 360 owners we have much bigger fish to fry than MGS4.
Play games and do not hang on to rumors and lies so hard N4G members. History of this site should not be forgotten you guys should have learned from the Sony fan boy’s massacres from 2005 - 2006. If you do not bite the hook you do not get caught. If it is a rumor treat it like that.
More damage control by Sony and it's close partners?
I've heard this before...
Assassins Creed wouldn't come to the 360
GTA wouldn't come to the 360
Bioshock wouldn't be only on 360 but coming to the PS3 also...
Right we all know better, 360 games sell (5.2 already attach rate) and PS3 games don't (1.5 game per unit sold attach rate)
Where the money is coming from, the games will go
how are you finding Gears buddy? Do you still play it? I bloody do.. Not gonna be uyin another game til Halo 3, lol
yea yea, cheer ur selfs up with that bullsh1t people.
hahahaa, xbots are a poor joke! msg will never come to the xbotscrap. mark this words! at least not mgs4. and please dont compare such sh!t like splinter cell with mgs. mgs is far better game. hahahaahaahaa idiots. buy a ps3 when you want to play ps3 games.
Theres a fair bit of anger in you mate. Im not that bothered bout these sorta games to be honest, i get a bit bred of them after a while. But ive played both MGS and SC open mindedly (though the SC i played was a newer version then the MGS i played), but i thought they were more or less equally matched. Course it would be great for MS if MGS came to the 360, but in the defence of all the 'xbots', the next SC is exclusive to the 360 (i think). So all us 360 players will be able to play a great stealth game anyway.
Besises man... whats your problem with everyone who has a different preference to you? Your doing no great service to the other PS3 gamers here by 'throwing your weight around' on an online forum? :S
I can't stand how people write! It's like reading the opinions of retarded 6-year olds. Use the entire word. Spell! Punctuation! A concise thought! Please people, try not to make your comments looke like the visual equivalent of vomit.
That being said, I'm not into stealth games. I find them to be frustrating, and often find that I have to be stealthy according to the game developers whims, not my own.
How well do MGS games sell, anyway? I had thought their sales numbers were in decline.
we dont need mgs4 the 360 is to powerful for that secand rate game.
...yeah like Xbox was so powerful with halo2 and Ninja Gaiden and is a dead turkey now HeeHeeHee !!!
The xbox was twice as much equipped as PS2 and even had a GPU and much easier to program and still it 'stuttered' when displaying rain in MGS-2, while PS2 made a heaven out of it !
.. Like the way the PS3 cant display sunlight properly on Sports games?
I've played this game ever since it was released on nintendo 8 bit. This game as of recent has had great cinematrics and great game play. This game has a great devoted core of fans, because of the great story lines and characters. The weapons and gadgets are cool too. This game will be a great on the PS3. 360 has cool game's but the system does bore me sometimes with all the FPS games. It needs more games like this and God of War other games that you can get on PS3 and Wii. This latest installation of MG is sure to be one of the best if not the best of the series. This game has a over a 20year history so stop dissing and respect the longevity. If you can't do that you shouldn't even call yourself a gamer.
they need to make it on the 360 if they want anyone to play it
ohhhh im an xbot. this game is corny because its a PS3 exclusive and i have splinter cell like every other console
Get a life looser.
Anyone with half a brain cell knows that MGS4 won't be coming to the 360. It's like saying Halo 3 will be going to the PS3. Yes, Sony has lost a ridiculous amount of exclusives, but Sony will do anything and everything to keep this killer app! The PS3 doesn't appeal to me, but i will definately be playing this game one way or another.
- stupid "!" over your enemies' heads, when they've heard/seen you. And they can't see you, RIGHT AT THEIR FEET, as long as you have your "special" camo on.
- hiding in a f*cking CARDBOARD BOX, that he somehow keeps with him.
- the lame-ass chatter back-and-forth over his coms, disrupting the gameplay.
- retarded enemy A.I.
- getting health from little take-out boxes of food, that mysteriously hover above the ground, after you kill an enemy.
Thanks, but no thanks....I'm happy with my 360 exclusives....don't need lame Sony leftovers.
what i dont understand is how konami would put mgs2 substance on the xbox 1 but nothing esle :/ especially even now when the 360 is doing so well and will continue to be on top even when this game is released. i dont know what konami's beef is with the american system but they really need to get over that bull and fast. im so sick and tiered of hearing him talk about how hard it is to develop for multi platforms, when everyone else does it and has no problems with it.
the 360 has the numbers and PS3 doesn't. If anyone wants to make any money in games right now, they have to release for 360 or they cut out the majority of the market.
The fact that the muliplatform rumor has been debunked goes to show you can't put a price on loyalty. Konami and Kojima are loyal to their fans, and by looking at this article I can tell the Xbox360 crowd is not. The MGS series is too deep for most Xbox360 players anyway.
is that i want to PLAY a game. if i want to read a book, i'll read a book. if i want to watch a movie, i'll put in a dvd. play for 2 minutes, sit still while i talk to somebody for 3 minutes, watch 10 minutes worth of cutscenes, play for 3 minutes, sit still and talk to 4 different people for 6 minutes, watch 15 minutes of cutscenes, repeat. i don't care about this "great, deep story" that people keep chirping about. let me PLAY the damn game, not watch and listen to it. in splinter cell, i can talk to people and do things at the same time. i hide in the dark. i don't pull a cardboard box out of my @ss that magically becomes big enough for me to fit in. i can look around the entire area, not some small, fixed section like i'm wearing a neck brace. i don't have to sit through 85% cutscenes to progress the story, i play the story as it unfolds. if they want to bring the metal gear from the nes to the 360 i'll take it. it was the only good 1 in the whole series. way better than that garbage snake eater. this of course, is all MY opinion.
Thank you for proving my point. The MG series is not appreciated by the 360 crowd, so why port it. One of the main things I look for in games is story. It is what separates an expensive toy from something closer to an art form. I also find the move towards 'games must be realistic and nothing else' stupid. OMG he has a "!" over his head, that not realistic. Its a game, get over it. I love the MG story line. It's deep and moving, the writing can also be funny and witty. The charactersare also some of the most memorable in any game. People hound this game because it's part of a long series. Thats because the games you play get old quick and you always want something new. You connect more to a series like MG, like a series of books. You don't have to keep books, movies, and games in their own categories. If you blend them it makes for a more memorable experience. Everything else is quickly hailed and quickly forgoten for something new.
it has nothing to do with being part of the 360 crowd. i just don't like the style of the series. i don't like not being able to look around the entire area. i hate the fixed camera. i don't like not being able to move and accomplish tasks while i'm talking to someone. i don't like all of the cutscenes. just let me play. if every single metal gear was on an xbox system instead of playstation, i would still feel the same way. i'm the guy that has never played halo 2 multiplayer and traded the game in before i had it 2 weeks. i'm the guy that thinks gta is boring and repetative. i just don't like it regardless of platform. i prefer splinter cell. splinter cell does do better on xbox, but it was created for xbox. there are a lot of 360 owners that would like to see this title on the system. i'm just not 1 of them.
Publishers also know that the PS3 will sale once inventory picks up and that is more money for them. Both systems are good and will make publisers happy. in the next year it will not be all about the 360. Plus with both systems doing well all gamers will do well.
Playstation fans are there, Sony just needs to up production. I mean Playstation isn't even worldwide yet, of course the numbers are low. MGS4 probably won't even be out till 2008 anyway and Sony will be in a much better spot. Plus by then 360 fans will realise they "jumped in" to quickly. As far as games Playstation has the edge for 2007. Halo is the best exclusive xbots get next year. We get Motorstorm, VF5, Tekken 6, Lair, Heavenly sword, Killzone. PS2 sales are still great and it goes to show that people don't just settle for any system. 128 million fans and growing. Even if a quarter of the fans buy a PS3 they will sell more than 360. Konami ain't stupid, People still want the PS3 and there game will be very successful on it. MGS4 = system seller
I see how this works. You say the Xbox 360 sucks and back it up by naming a single exclusive game it has going for it and forget about the rest while naming the litany of games exclusive to the PS3.
I could do it too, but I'm not that petty. If you want to see what those games you mentioned are truly up against, go down to comment 21. Looks a little more balanced now don't it?
No plans to bring "MGS 4 to the 360 at this time." Which means as of this moment there are no plans for "MGS 4", but a 360 version might be planned anytime from "this time" forward. Or there are plans for a "4.5" or "remix" version. Or, or, or.
There are so many ways to read what they said. Unfortunately fanboys can't read, and if a 360 MGS comes out at anytime in the future they will cry about how "Konami lied!!1!".
"Playstation fans are there, Sony just needs to up production. I mean Playstation isn't even worldwide yet, of course the numbers are low. MGS4 probably won't even be out till 2008 anyway and Sony will be in a much better spot. Plus by then 360 fans will realise they "jumped in" to quickly.

At the moment the Xbox 360 has better exclusive games coming out in 2007 compared to the PS3.
Lost Planet: Extreme Condition
Forza Motorsports 2
Kane & Lynch: Dead Men
Them games above show that the Xbox 360 has a strong lineup of games coming in 2007.
Seriously are you in denial or sumthin, the PS3 line up is utter insane for 2007 and all u come up with is maybe 4 good titles.
Motorstorm, Virtua Fighter 5, Lair, Unreal Tournament 07, Mlb 07, MGS4, Getaway, New Naughty Dog Project, this is just a damn few and not to mention the titles that are unannounced games on PS3, also the multiplatform games on PS3, PS3 PWNS 2007.
and the getaway...please. they were garbage.
even though it really counts for nothing.... i wouldnt put all of my eggs in one basket... especially when that basket is $600.
I bet Juevani didn't go to sleep untill Konami released info. Get some sleep Juevani!.
metal gear solid has super gameplay, super story, and super fun...man i can imagine it on my ps3 right now rolling on snakes back w/ motion sensing, and crawling w/ my camo ..man. hideo kojima is gonna make this game stellar on the PS3 w/o rumble..i've been playing final fantasy 12 on my ps2 w/o rumble and this thing is hoootttt ... as long as the game is sweet. man... snake is splinters cells father you have to agree.
and play syphon filter 1 and 2 over metal gear.
yeah.. and you wont be able to tell if your getting shot cuz theres no vibration function in your stupid @ss controller...hahaha
Yes he will because those annoying exclamation points will flash all over the screen with that dreadful noise.
3 months after ps3 release or 6 months?
If they get it, they will get it when a redux version is done, like subsistence. Which doesn't usually happen for a year+.
"Konami has no plans to bring Metal Gear Solid 4 to the Xbox 360 AT THIS TIME," They just CONFIRMED it for the 360. This , for people grounded in reality, is not a " debunk " in any way shape or form.
With that statement they pretty much confirmed a timed exclusive. "Konami has no plans to bring Metal Gear Solid 4 to the Xbox 360." That is the comment the PS3 fans needed to see. Sorry guys.
I wouldn't say thats a confirmation. They are just saying that it's not outside the realm of possibility they they would make a port, which has been the trend. MGS went to GameCube, about 3 or 4 years after the original. MGS2 went to Xbox when they did a redux version, it was the most lack luster of the series, whice may explain the distaste of the series by the Xbox crowd. Correct me if im wrong but I don't think MGS3 was ported to any other system, which might show a reverse in the trend.
I haven't played a Metal Gear game since Metal Gear Solid / PS1. It's not my taste. Too corny , waayyy to much talking for a stealth action title.
Pretty much the first time I hid under a table to enjoy a 15 min. converstion with some chick and asked her out while hiding from armed assault troops I turned it off.
I would not be buying this game. I just feel this is another Assassins Creed as far as being a PS3 "exclusive."
oh well I wouldn't of played it anyways
ill play it.....when it comes to 360
liked the mgs games so what ever lol .
got to many good games coming in 2007 so what ever :)
It's a definite split between "No, Konami's lying" and "I don't want to play it anyway." The Playstation-Metal Gear relationship has been going on for quite some time and, despite some experimentation with Xbox hardware and outsourcing to Silicon Knights for a remake, there's no reason to throw it all away.
Kojima could easily find another publisher, so it's not like Konami can easily sway him.
i'll ask again. does anybody that actually owns a ps3 know if you can download and run applications on it? such as limewire, divx player, pc games, ect. i wouldn't see a problem downloading them from the browser, but can you actually run them from that point? anyone...anyone...bueller...an yone.
"[insert company name here] has no plans to bring [insert console name here] to the [insert console name here] at this time" this is a standard template for companies when they wan't to say "no comments". What do you spect them to say? Let's pretend that this is true and they will be making this game for the 360; do you know how this would affect the PS3? Do you know how many people are buying a PS3 just for this game? I'm not saying this game will not be exclusive to the PS3; all I am saying is that their statement does not say much. Why don't they say, "Konami has no plans to bring Metal Gear to the 360 [ever]. We signed an exclusive agreement with Sony that guarantee exclusivity. and no matter how much microsoft offers our game will never be on the xbox 360." why do they always say "at this time"? This imply that it can change. and that at [another] time things can be different. tomorrow? 1 month from now?.
I will tell you, sony better pay or give Konami anything they want for MGS4. Honesly I really hope MGS and Final Fantasy stay PS exclusive, the XBox 360 already have enough good games in the pipeline. The PS3 needs titles like this even they are 3rd party(sad). Eventhough at this moment I prefer the XBox 360 as my primary console I would hate to see it as the only console choice. Come on Sony! Don't let go this title or you are dead!
you'll notice it says "no plans at this time"....so therefore it will release on the 360....and if it does i will be selling my ps3 and be switchin over to the 360
so sad people.first it was "we don't want that game.""splinter cell is better."splinter cell wouldn't exist without metal gear.and even then,metal gear's story is still better and hideo keeps coming up with ideas that ubisoft still hasn't beaten.can't wait for the new camouflage.but i'll admit cell had some things gear could use.
then it was "sony's just losing exclusives."maybe so.we know that next gen development is expensive.but not a lot will go over.360 will lose some of it's exclusives.it's going to happen.but sony will have their own games.and microsoft will have their own games.this isn't assassin's creed where ubisoft was a multiplatform developer already.they don't really do exclusives.but they do like the ease of development of 360.
and as for lying.unless you get a definite answer from the top saying so,it is not coming to 360."it will just come later" nonsense has got to stop.but it's not like 360 gamers care anyway.even if it was a good game from ps3 or wii.it's either 360 only games from microsoft or we don't care.but you call yourselves gamers.
From the Pics seen of this game it was and is no where near finished. All of the Demos Released for this game was done on PS2 hardware. Don't be surprised if this game appears on ps2 first.
Being that PS2 srill sell more than anything that is'nt DS it would be Pure Foolery to Ignore the Ps2 owners who made these games famous. Once i heard the Rumors i stayed out of it because i knew first off that MGS was Timed exclusives just Like GTA San Andreas.
Konami is'nt going to say that this game is not exclusive to hurt the sale of PS3 systems knowing he's loyal to KK Kaz.Believe you me this Rumor was made to be more than what it was is because it is the truth when it comes to recouping money nowadays. In The End M.I.A.M.I. when it comes to these gamesand theres no denying it.
nintendo going third party.or that they won't make another system.all those naysayers must be really full with all that crow they are eating.rumor and gossip lead to nothing.unless it's in fine print,it's just talk.some might end up being true,but for the most part,they all end up being false.
A lot of people have jumped on this game saying it just sucks. Maybe the sneaking/silent/stealth game isn't your style, but sales have shown that many people have found the series to be quality. Konami wont let one of its flagship series be a bad game, it'll will rock. And about 6 months after its release, I'm sure there'll be MGS4: Substance, so I'm just gona wait for that.
Damn! that sucks the last post talking about this was getting me hyped but now I am sitting here reading this. GOD, but I don't understand why not? Konami would make very dramatic increase in sales allowing this game to be able to play on the Xbox 360. But I just can't come up with one reason why that would be a negative decision for Konami.
you its just a timed exclusive PS3 game. I'm sure Konami is working on the 360 version right along side the PS3 version. Only time will tell?
play halo w/ vibration off or any other game in the ps3/ps2/xbox/360 you will forgot instantly that you turned it off..unless ur a fanboy
has adapted a new camera angle system and battle system(Octo-thingy) i can't wait for that game on my ps3..sigh..about that sound you hear when the enemys get alarmed ..i don't know if that will still be there but i liked it . The music will definately be pumping in caution and alert status though.Did anyone see that MGS4 TGS trailer ..that thing was off the hook haha.
"play halo w/ vibration off or any other game in the ps3/ps2/xbox/360 you will forgot instantly that you turned it off..unless ur a fanboy "
bullsh1t you chatting bout. Getting shot in a FPS or TPS and feeling rumble is a excellent indicator. without it you will feel naked.
Timmy you suck. You keep getting killed in those games and want find a edge. you think with vibrate off you aim better cause you garbage. Eat a Mean one.
I've been forcing myself to get used to no rumble, and it really doesn't take too long to get used to. I wont miss it that much because if its a good game I'll be more focused on the action then wether or not I can feel a rumble. I think about halfway through 07 though Sony will release a rumble/tilt controller. MS might do the same.
Just turn the bass way up :) Being mostly a PC gamer the loss of rumble doesn't affect me at all. There was gaming before rumble and there will be gaming after rumble.
You can still hope. Konami's spokesman said there were no plans to bring MGS4 to the 360 "at this time." As in many other games once said to be exclusive, there is a backdoor left open to escape thru.
Remember that line??
Now a few months later, we find out that Sony asked them to keep the 360 version a secret as a "special favor".
Sounds like the same quote we heard back then doesnt it?
I dont care if it comes out 6 months later, the difference is the 360 actually has something to play while we wait.
The PS3? You can watch bluray movies while you wait. Ha Ha Ha Ha!!!!
i don't even think it vibrates when u get shot in mgs.Does it?
