Konami Denies 360 Metal Gear Solid 4, Japanese Newspaper Silently Edits Story

"Konami, in yet again denying rumors that Kojima Productions' Metal Gear Solid 4 (PS3) is in the works for the Xbox 360, made a quote from its PR man disappear in the night.

The persistent rumor popped up again after Konami PR rep Yoshitaka Arai told the Japanese branch of investment firm Morningstar, "we are investigating releasing a 360 version." But GameCyte picked up that Japanese game blog my game news flash noticed that the story was quietly changed.

Without update or retraction, the original Morningstar story was edited to mention the Winning Eleven (known over here as Pro Evolution Soccer) and Castlevania series in place of Metal Gear Solid 4.

"The talk about a 360 version of Metal Gear Solid 4 has somehow completely been replaced with talk about Winning Eleven!!!" exclaimed the Japanese blog. " (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3)

I'm not missing much
I've tried this game and IN MY OPINION its nothing special! Just not my cup of tea! I didn't like Halo3 as well so dont think i'm a blind fanboy!
amir0x  +   2479d ago
why troll the game zone everytime

MGS4 is a special game. Perhaps the best game ever after LBP
Aclay  +   2479d ago
@ Jaysquared,

MGS4 is not a mainstream game and it's not meant to appeal to everyone. If you haven't played the previous MGS games then you wont be able to appreciate MGS4 like a TRUE MGS FAN would, and something tells me that you probably haven't played any other MGS game before. Too bad you can't appreciate a masterpiece of a game.
jaysquared  +   2479d ago
Again that was in my opinion. Yes i'm a different gamer compared to the people that like the MGS and Final Fantasy games and such. I dont play games to get into the story I play games just to play. So I dont think I could ever play MGS4 with its long cut scenes.. Again just not my cup of tea..
PirateThom  +   2479d ago
Fair enough, at least you didn't just bash it.

MGS has become more neich as time goes on and I, for one, love it, I genuinely enjoyed the cutscenes, but I know not everyone does.
BLuKhaos  +   2479d ago
wow sojust because Jay doesn't like MGS4 he's trolling? *shakes head* some people.

LBP is great don't get me wrong, but don't dare and say it's better than MGS4. MGS4 is above and beyond any game, especially this generation.
smturner68  +   2479d ago
to amir0x and finalrpg
Neither of you two disputing which is better between MGS4 and LBP know for sure, now do ya? Maybe I should say, "those two games are pretty good, but not NEARLY as good as God of War 3!!" psst...LBP isn't out yet!!!


People in here call others fanboys? We are pretty much ALL fanboys if we're on this sad website. The only reason to visit n4g.com is to easily find all the news without visting many websites...oh, and I guess to torture ourselves reading moronic rants from guys that just don't have any sense of fairness or logic.

People in here ALWAYS use future ps3 games against the 360? It is as common as Republicans telling us the they'll keep our taxes low and using scare tactics and wedge issues in elections.

(BUAAAAAAAAAAAA I want this game for my flopbox360 BUAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA)"
JohnnyChimpo  +   2479d ago
hehehe you can keep telling yourself this kind of crap to help you sleep better at night, but I've said it numerous times, there will be no MGS4 on 360. It ain't happening, face it, the bots missed out on one of the best games of 2008. Did anyone get the special edition MGS4 with the Bluray movie in it? In the interview with Hideo he even states that there will be no MGS4 on 360. Plus who wants a dumbed down version of MGS4 anyways

xbox 360 just dont get it YOUR NOT GETTING ANY METAL GEAR SOLID 4.
johover112  +   2479d ago
it's funny when Metal Gear Solid 4 was first released, Xbox fanboys started talking saying that it wouldn't be anything special, but once the words "rumor to xbox 360" appears, everyone starts cheering and other crap. ANYWAY lol Metal Gear Solid 4 on xbox 360 would need about 3 to 4 disks if possible lol.
ICUP  +   2479d ago

just buy a ps3 and play the game

cheap bastard or waiting for your parent to buy you one?
amir0x  +   2479d ago
well eventaully most people will do that this Fall
I expect a lot of x360 owners who are hardcore gamers buy ps3 for Resistance 2,lbp and mgs4
darkdoom3000  +   2479d ago
lol indeed
amir0x  +   2479d ago
Can we just be done with MGS4 rumours
It is not coming to X360 since it doesnt have Blu Ray drive
Now please stop with it
Sena Kobayakawa  +   2479d ago
Why do they keep on making stories about MGS4 coming out on X360? this is getting old. theres plenty other stuff to talk about like Tales of Heart on DS , Halo3:Recon , LBP , Gears2 , Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm etc etc.

Im of to another thread with my MAX SPEED!!!
xanith83  +   2479d ago
ms and blue ray?
Rumor has it that xbox 360 trying to go blu ray??? i read it in one of my gameinformers...
James Vanderbeek  +   2479d ago
In all honesty
I dont think this game could be done on the 360 in a techincal stand point as it is now..

If it is done the whole game would have to be re done on the 360 and way down graded...

Enough with the RUMORS!
Listen! MGS4 will never ... EVER!!!!!! go to the 360 simply because its using the PS3 power and it took years to make that game... were talking about 5-6 years! Why would Kojima wanna spend another 6 years... well maybe 10 years since 360 is a different and weaker system... Its not possible! Plus on a MGS4 cut scene... Dr. Oct said "Enter disc 2.. o wait were on PS3! BlU RAY"!!

Enough is Enough! PS3 is MGS4! Snake was born and will die on Playstation! Kojima is loyal to his company! he dont want money!! he wants to let everyone know that he has a passion for games and wants everyone to know that unlike other companys who sold out for cash (EA, Ubi, Square, Temco, and the list goes on) Kojima Productions will not be on that list...

I heard its actually coming
I heard it IS coming, they cant release any info yet due to NDA... Soon though... Very soon... As in now. Almost... No quite but close.
badz149  +   2479d ago
I don't know about that!
Konami has total control over MGS4 on the PS3! MGO is not running on PSN but rather on Konami's own servers and all sessions and puchases are being done without the aid of PSN, thus the need of of separated Konami ID and Game ID over the existing PSN ID! it SUCKS and troublesome but I think this move is about maximixing the profit for Konami by some way. I think that's one of the deal between sony and konami for MGS4 to stay exclusive as those are not possible on 360 due to M$'s strict policies about XBL! there is no way that they'll allow Konami for any off-XBL activities like MGO! so, I think it's pretty much safe to assume that MGS4 will remain exclusive for the mean time. but what do I know, I'm just an average gamer.
Venomous_1  +   2479d ago
Never Played the other Mgs games
But Mgs4 was an Awesome experience.

And if they can make it play on the 360. I say why not we should stop the hate and let everybody enjoy an amazing game with an amazing story and a team that really put effort into the game.

Rumors so.... we never really know..
The Tour Man  +   2479d ago
These rumors just comes to show Xbots are really desperate for a true AAA game this year. Sad indeed.

Xbots, times running out.
Microsoft cant make new IP's so their trying to steal some PS3 exclusives, next thing you know, the 360 is a multiplat console while PS3 will have 20 first party studios and some second party to back them up. LOLandROFFLMFAO
Old Snake141  +   2479d ago
I don't know
It's a huge shock to me ReTarDedFisHy. No really couldn't see this ending any other way. JK. lol.

Well I hope this one definately puts an end to those rumors
hadouken007  +   2479d ago

they suck.
Old Snake141  +   2479d ago
@ Shadow Man
Why would they wait 6 months and then announce it and where did you hear about a contract with Sony? I don't any logic in that at all. If they are making a port which I know they are not, they would of said it by now.
belal  +   2479d ago
this is jusssst the beginning
sooner or later xbots will start a new roumor ;)
DARKTRINITYxxx  +   2479d ago
XFLOPS shot down in flames once again.
MGS4 = PS3 weve played it.
MGS4 = XFLOP never gonna happen.
Get over it.
hunter21  +   2479d ago
lol if (you)xbox fanboys want to play MGS4 then buy a ps3, easy as that. why they cant accept the fact that the MGS is only and made for the ps3.
militant07  +   2479d ago
i guss its not right time to announce 360 version, I guss its will be soon. GDC ?
robotnik  +   2479d ago
poor xbots, they will never play as the ultimate soldier Solid Snake
poor xbots, their console doesnt have any games.
