5 Reasons MGS4 Will Never Come to Xbox 360

With Final Fantasy XIII going multi-platform and Haze ending up a sad, broken mess, Metal Gear Solid 4 is starting to look like the last blockbuster third-party exclusive the PlayStation 3 has in its arsenal. And although it looks set to stay that way - as publisher Konami has repeatedly reaffirmed that the game will stay PS3-exclusive - rumors keep cropping up that the game will eventually head to the Xbox 360.

Whatever your thoughts on console loyalties, there are some pretty strong arguments on both sides. In the interest of quashing the rumors (and of fanning their flames), GamesRadar has pulled together the biggest reasons why Metal Gear Solid 4 will never/definitely appear on the 360 in the near future.

It will probably be a 4 disc game at the very least. The game has already given konami plenty of profits. If it came to the 360, how much would it really sell. The hype is down significantly and most of the people who wanted to play have already played it.

Then lets not forget licensing fees per disc that microsoft charges lol. It could come to the 360 if Msoft paid a sum though. Enough money to make it worth the trouble

Nothing is impossible and if it does happen it will just let more people that don't have a PS3 be able enjoy this great game. Absolutely nothing wrong with that.

this caption under a pic MGS2: Substance was funny...

^^ because the media makes this sh*t up to get hits or garner attention.

I dissagree with #1.2(that comment is in the wrong zone), I reported as off topic.

Reporting #1.2's comment as Spam, should suffice(as if being attacked and dissagreed with for nothing makes your suggestion not welcome) lol.

I hate missinformation no matter what.

Actually they are wrong about the number of disks. John Carmack just revealed that Microsoft requires almost 2GB of every 360 disk for the purposes of security software. So in addition to all of the other big reasons that is far more than 6 disks right there.

The biggest reason of all they ignore. Konami owns parts of the franchise but Kojima owns and controls most of it. He owns enough that he is the one with whom they will have to deal. It is why movie studios - Sony/Columbia negotiated with Kojima, not Konami in order to make a MGS movie. And Kojima says no other platforms period. Thankfully he is a person that is not motivated by money so any interested parties can just stow their checkbooks along with their hopes.

Nothing is impossible but many things are possible that reside in the land of the absurd and the simple instance of their possibility is hardly grounds for wishes or a grain of believability. I might win the lottery, Christina Aguilera or Jessica Alba might meet me by accident on the street and I will push them out of the way of oncoming traffic (more likely into it - airheaded women are not my type) but yes theoretically it could happen. Possible? I won't be waiting by the phone. SO yes it is possible but if it was a horse no one would bet on it.

@ pog,

While to the uninitiated what you wrote may seem noble I just went and looked at your recent post history where you attack people even using the acronym STFU with one poster. Hypocritical at best, wouldn't you say?

If you want to turn over some leaf it will require a longer period of demonstrated proof. With your recent history of posting, the current lake of crap you claim to disdain is to deep and of your own making for you to rise above.

so please don't consider this a knock on MGS4, (I have not bought it but I'm sure it's amazing) this game is old news. I bet it wouldn't even sell that well on the 360. It's like Bioshock for the PS3. Both game are out, reviewed, played, beaten, and enjoyed...time to move on. The 360 does not need this game.

juuken3420d ago

Lol, of COURSE it is! C'mon man, you know Microsoft has a crapload of space on the 360! They have hidden bluray capabilities man!

/sarcasm

But seriously, it'll never end.

Next: Microsoft ends up buying out both Nintendo AND Sony! -__-

CrazzyMan3420d ago
