MGS4 Rumor dismissed by theSixthAxis

Yahoo JP are running a story basically infering that Konami, amongst others, are aware there's a massive interest in porting Metal Gear Solid 4 to the Xbox 360. However, the publishers are concious that it's a Sony game at the moment, but next time around chances are their multiformat strategy will have changed somewhat.

Despite what you'll no doubt be reading around the web later today, this isn't Kojima announcing an Xbox 360 version of MGS4…

The story is too old to be commented.

"MGS4 PS3 Only. But MGS5…?"

This is what the actual article says.

shingo3686d ago (Edited 3686d ago )

MGS5 on 360? That's even more impossible than saying "what if MGS4 come to 360".

Long ago I used to think of the possiblity of MGS4 being ported to the 360, but the day I bought that game and played it I realized fully that MS console can't handle that massiveness at all, they would have to cut down tons of stuff or otherwise the game would come in a ridiculous amount of DVDs.

Man_of_the_year3686d ago (Edited 3686d ago )

I have both systems and own MGS4 and i can tell you that there is nothing in MGS4 that can't be done on the 360. I am sick of you ignorant morons stating something as if it was fact...Lair was said it can't be done on the 360 and look how that game turned out, FFXIII was said it can't be done on the 360 and now its coming to the 360, DMC4 was said it can't be done on the 360 and it turned out better on the 360 and now here you are saying that MGS4 can't be done...not even Kojima said it can't be done - he said it was optimized for the PS3...but it can also be optimized to run on the 360.

DaTruth3686d ago

I thought 360 fans don't like to watch games... OH, that must just be the fanboys. Could you imagine hating such an incredible game because it didn't come out on your platform of choice. Do you think they'll refuse to buy it if it did come to 360? Talk about cutting off your nose in spite of your face!

Time_Is_On_My_Side3686d ago (Edited 3686d ago )

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots runs at 1080p at 60fps now tell me one retail not downloadable game that runs at high of a resolution on the XBOX 360? Second, Hideo Kojima (Producer, Director) said that 50GB of data was too small for his ambitions imagine 8.54GB (DVD9) will do for him (XBOX 360)?

zo6_lover273686d ago (Edited 3686d ago )

MGS4 is 720p
However, I am not sure what FPS it runs.
MGS4 is one of the few title's on the ps3 to say that it runs in 1080p on the package, but not actually do so

Sarcasm3686d ago

MGS4 runs natively in 1024x768 using temporal AA.

A better example of what the 360 cannot and will never do, is Wipeout HD which is 1920x1080 resolution.

Kaneda3686d ago (Edited 3686d ago )

blah.. damn slow computer!

Kaneda3686d ago

If M$ is flashing the right amount of cash.. anything is possible on 360... Like SE Final Fantasy..

Aquanox3686d ago

They don't even have a source. How are they dismissing a Konami's rep. declaration?


Man_of_the_year3686d ago (Edited 3686d ago )

You are an ignorant FOOL if you think that it can't run on the 360 because of the reasons you stated...

1. There are games that run at 60 FPS on the 360 - Forza 2 does this with ease and also calculates 360 physical calculations per second.

2. It doesn't matter if it is 1080p (which it is not like stated earlier by other posters) but it can be scaled down to 720p and still look great. Resolution has nothing to do with if the game can be done on the 360. Not too mention that the 360 do 1080p but most games do not because 720p is the optimal resolution for games - don't believe me look at all the games on the 360 and the PS3 and i bet not even 5% of the games run at 1080p.

3. The game is one 1 blu-ray disc but it was not compressed. you could fit the game on 2 DVD 9's compressed. 9 hours of cut scenes and about 5 hours of gameplay is nothing to brag about. Now if it was 14 straight hours on 1 blu-ray disc that filled it up then you have something to brag about. With the new dashborad the discs could be stored onto the HDD and probably run a lot smoother AND with only 1 install and not several.

Like stated earlier - it was optimized to run on the PS3 it can be optimized to run on the 360.

I am sorry Some_One_Plays but you are one of the most ignorant posters on this site yet you try so hard to come off intelligent.

Do some research before you pull crap out of your a$$ to smear it over these boards to try and blind us like you are.

@why o why - actually i have the game Lair as well - 2 copies (but thats another story) - when the devs said it can't be done on the 360 they were talking about hardware not software - and who is to say that the game couldn't have been on 2 discs - but the game is not all that big so i am sure it can be done on 1 DVD9.

Why o why3686d ago (Edited 3686d ago )

I am sick of you ignorant morons stating something as if it was fact...Lair was said it can't be done on the 360 and look how that game turned out

Im sick of people thinking that because it cant be done on another system the game had to be great. The points dont match. lair was a big game. it had more things going on on screen than any 360 to date. Of course these claims are hypothetical but what they are truly saying is that more disks might be needed (obvious) and other things might have to get chopped, dumbed down or altered making it worse than a sloppy port

You do have a little point though to be fair. Remember when ubisoft or whoever said that naruto game couldnt be done on the ps3 then we saw the ps3 exclusive version and the FACT is they were talking po po cause Naruto ninja storm raped the 360 version......twice


yeah hardware as in enough of whatever you need to HAVE that many things on screen at once just like heavenly sword

johover1123686d ago (Edited 3686d ago )

PS3's Mgs4 is really powerful, and just like naruto it MURDERED the xbox version. lets all just stop this, MGS5 would be bigger than MGS4 and if thats the case then it will STAY with sony. unless a xbox version comes would have to be about 7 disks lol
(i had to agree your post Why o Why)

Bathyj3686d ago

You might not like Lair, but it still couldn't be done on XB.

Deal with it sook. MotY my arse.

Bottomline, if you want MGS4, get a PS3. We dont sit around whining, "wah I wish I had Halo, I wish I had Gears."

zo6_lover273686d ago

"Like stated earlier - it was optimized to run on the PS3 it can be optimized to run on the 360."

Being optimized for the ps3 will just make a 360 version that much harder, I would guess if they decided to make a 360 version, it would be in development for at least 2 years.
MGS4 used almost all of the ps3's traits, from bluray, to motion sensing, to its pressure sensitive buttons. The 360 has none of those things.
MGS4 also contained many Apple logos and products, and many sony products.

Rourker3686d ago

it true they did use a lot of apple products, and they also made a joke in the game about how you don't have to switch the disc because it uses bluebray, which I thought was funny, and it was a slight knock at Microsoft.

Megatron083685d ago (Edited 3685d ago )

an unknown ps3 fanboy site with no source at all or ign I wonder what one is more believable

Oh and ign has a source and they connected Konami to try to an offical reply about the rumor

The Lazy One3685d ago

Ninety Nine Nights had many hundreds of NPCs on screen all running AI, all killable within a second, at which point they all turned into rag dolls and ended up flying around the levels.\

it wasn't the best game ever, but it had a TON of stuff on screen.

zo6_lover273685d ago (Edited 3685d ago )

They gave their source
But I doubt that you can read Japanese


Here is a better interpretation

eric1003685d ago

No fanboyism

But x360's survival is under threat due to LBP

I think LBP will be the biggest game of this gen

Time_Is_On_My_Side3685d ago (Edited 3685d ago )

Lol, I come off as intelligent because I am intelligent. The reason why I mentioned the resolution because it will determine how good the graphics will look. Just look at the Wii everything is in SD (Standard Definition) and hardly any games on the XBOX 360 run at 720p let alone 1080p. Halo 3 a game that was made specifically for the XBOX 360 doesn't even reach 720p in the end results in bad looking textures on HDTVs. Then you look at Killzone 2 that runs at 720p at 30fps that will most likely be the best looking first person shooter on the market.

Then you look at Uncharted: Drake's Fortune that runs at 720p looks nice and sharp on my HD display. When I was talking about the fps (Frames Per Second) I including the resolutions for a reason. The resolutions can determine how high the fps can be. So those games that run 60fps in Forza Motorsport 2 I’m guessing is really 720p, while the Gran Turismo 5 Prologue is 1080p at 60fps.

Lastly most games like Infamous will be exclusive due to disk space and will determine how ambitious the game will be. Resistance 2 has two individual campaigns both being the same length in game-play, a robust online community, with 60 players online. Whether you like it or not, the disc format will determine how ambitious the game can be. Remembering that there is also another game packed in with Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (Metal Gear Online Starter Pack). With the XBOX 360 downloading for the HDD I’m pretty sure you have to keep the disc in the console in order for it to work. Remembering with Final Fantasy XIII they said if they were ever to port it over to the XBOX 360 / PC they would have to use multiple disc (XBOX 360)/redue the whole coding (PC). I've never even heard about that with the other games.

BWS19823685d ago

but Man of the year, you're incorrect on the length of MGS4, it's much longer than 5 hours when cutscenes are removed. MUCH longer. I have my system, I want the other, I could care less because I already have the game.

Final_Rpg3685d ago

I thought 360 owners didn't care about MGS4.

Man_of_the_year3685d ago (Edited 3685d ago )

You are right that Halo3 doesn't run at 720p - it was actually done in a completely different type of programing for resolution - this has been covered may times - the game uses 2 frame buffers which is better than 720p and Halo 3 looks great. here is a link

I stand by my comment stating that only about 5% of games run at 1080p on both platforms and most games are optimized to run at 720p.

Also the size of a disc doesn't determin how well the game will be. Just because you can fit more into on a blu-ray over a DVD9. DEADSPACE is getting great reviews and it fits on both a blu-ray and DVD9 and comes out on both consoles - halo3 1 DVD9 and is the biggest selling game with an average rating of like 9.6. There have been a few exclusive games on the PS3 that are considered huge flops - the use of blu-ray couldn't help them out now.

Bioshock, GEARS1, The Orange Box - all fit on DVD9 and all are GOTY. So your point about the type of media being used as an influance in how well the game will be is garbage.

Obviously SE has to change the coding for the 360 game...and what does the disc having to be in the tray have anything to do with MGS? Its only in the tray to prevent piracy - there is no loading nor does the disc even spin while playing if it is stored on the HDD - you really need to research more.

You are just trying to back up your console of choice by regergitating the same crap over and over again but you're not taking in the answers as it seems you just want to ignor the obvious.

There is nothing the PS3 can do that the 360 can't PERIOD.
This has been shown time and time again with multiplats - and as stated before - there were tons of games that were to have been exclusive to the PS3 that was said that they can't be done on the 360 and when the game did end up going to the 360 not only did it meet the same standards of the PS3 but it surpassed it - you are only saying that MGS4 can't be done on the 360 because it hasn't been ported over to it yet. And if it does then what - all you sony fanboys will say the same crap about the next PS3 exclusive that may end up on the 360 "oh it can't be done - the 360 can't handle the graphics - the 360 is just not powerful enough bla bla bla"

i Own both systems and can say that it can be done - all you PS3 only fanboys can only argue 1/2 of the argument and its always uninformed, uneducated rants.

Shane Kim3685d ago

Man of the year please shut the fúck up. Are you some kind of developer? If the god damn devs are saying it can't be done on xbox 360, then it can't.

Man_of_the_year3685d ago

Don't be so ignorant - there have been plenty of times where Devs had stated that the game they are creating can only be one on a certain console either being 360 or PS3 and its just not the case. They are only saying this because its exclusive to that console. Seriously you PS3 fanboys have some real mental issues.

I give you links and arguable points as well as others on this site and you still disagree and take bubbles away from them - PS3 fanboys are seriously the WORST fanboys of any console - along with being the most blinded, most ignorant, uneducated, easily manipulated bunch of pansy a$$ cry babies i have ever seen.

I have both systems and utilize the strengths of both which are hooked up to my 1080p 46' LCD samsung HDTV with 5.1 surround sound. I play demos and games off both and compare games off of both and i will argue with any of you skirt wearing Sony Fanboys that would rather spew their ignorant CRAP on the forums trying to find other ignorant fanboys to join their Army of moronic collective brainwashed thinking.

You guys make me sick.

BWS19823682d ago

where the hell are you posting anything but insults, get over yourself, you've argued about resolutions on games, then got into insults, I just followed your entire logic from the top. Spewing insults proves nothing about games, only about yourself.

Only on Playstation 3.

They forgot to put that in the BoxArt of MGS4.
