Seriously, since when was MGS Rising a PS3 Exclusive? If I can recall correctly from watching the Microsoft conference, MGSR was announced as a 360 game at first and everyone thought it was exclusive to 360.
exactly, but people love to spin. i got one too. konami destroyes mgs:risen on 360 announcement at e3! multiplatt confirmed!!! sony makes ff13 steal from ms lastyear look foolish, ff14 on ps3 in 2010! see what i did there ? its all about spinning.
More like: Microsoft steals Eyetoy exclusivity!!
You guys can try to down play it as much as you want it doesnt change the fact that the PS3 community was expecting MGS to stay exclusive to the PS3. You can act like you knew the franchize was going multiplat but thats not true. You didnt know and are now pissed, hence all these articles to downplay the importance of MGS: Rising. FF Versus is a just a spin off of FF13 but the funny thing is you guys are all over it....but I thought spin offs sucked ?? edit: ok not the PS3 community, I meant to say PS3 fboys. Kojima may not be the director but he'll NEVER EVER let a MGS game from Kojima Productions not be at the same standards as the other MGS games and YOU KNOW IT. I personally cant wait for this game and I bet 99% of MGS fans and and MGS4 owners will get Rising and run back home with excitement to play it.
"You guys can try to down play it as much as you want it doesnt change the fact that the PS3 community was expecting MGS to stay exclusive to the PS3." I'm so sick of people generalizing sh1t like this. No, PS3 FANBOYS, not the community, FANBOYS, said it could never go anywhere. Most of us, ESPECIALLY many of we hardcore MGS fans, knew the series would eventually go multiplatform. It's the future of 3rd party development for all the obvious reasons. Hell, I've even said it in previous threads. I acknowledge all the time that development is changing as things get more expensive, and it's stupid to limit your fanbase. But man, the trashy "Xbox community" loves to gloat ANYWAYS, even when it's a generally agreed upon fact. Pretty sad. I really don't know what's worse, the PS3 fanboys crying like babies, or the 360 fanboys acting like idiots per usual.
@by chance That is false. Everybody knows MS had a long time begging Kojima to make something for the 360. What people was expecting is MGS4 to stay exclusive (as it still is). A multiplat spinoff it what the 360 got (different gameplay btw). The real sequel you know where it is, on the PSP.
WRONG lachance no mgs fan expected mgs to stay sony exclusive, in FACT it never was a sony only ip, releases on xbox1 gamecube wii ds etc. mgs4 IS a ps3 exclusive and it will stay that way, and since you diehards didnt get that game witch you wanted so bad, you overhype mgs:risen to be on the 360 too. wich in fact was first announced for te 360 and later on confirmed a multipalt by konami. I still cant see where the so called "stolen exclusive" is. but since your hardly a gamer but more of a diehard ms fan, i understand that you know little to nothing about the mgs history. "FF Versus is a just a spin off of FF13 but the funny thing is you guys are all over it....but I thought spin offs sucked ?? " well maybe us gamers didnt care about the ff13 multiplat announcement lastyear, and who said spinoffs suck ? i cant wait to play either games ff13 and mgs:risen. but you love to generalise and bash around, in fact i havent read a single constructive comment from you in weeks.
But what I think you meant to say was "The PS3 community was expecting MGS4 to stay exclusive to the PS3" ....and that hasn't and probably never will change......
Please people, stop this nonsense "war". It's what it is and "fighting" over it won't change a bit. We all received lots of great announcements, games, hardware and software but for some people it's just not enough. Some of you are unhappy to a point where you're not able enjoy really great E3 this year, yeah it was really awesome to be honest, and what's even worse, you're trying to spoil it to other people. Is being a gamer not enough anymore? What's this bull*hit all about?
Ive played and finshed every MGS that has ever come out since the day Im born (except for MGS4) including the PSP ones and the gamecube remake. I'll be geting Rising day one and and wont diss it or downplay it simply because its not exclusive to the 360 or PS3. @ghoul below: Im a student and cant afford and especially dont have the time for 2 consoles.Ive obviously played MGS4 but I havent finished it. You know some people can spend 400eu for ONE SINGLE GAME, well I cant and I dont think its sensible to do such a thing.If the were other games on the PS3 that appeal to me as much as MGS 4 I would have one.Today that isnt the case.And with FF multiplat too I sure wont be getting the PS3 before a MAJOR price cut. edit : wow looks some people know more than me what Ive played or not.
well lachance why do you spread false info then ?? if youre really a mgs fan why didnt you get mgs4 its incredible. oh wait i see, sorry i forgot its on the ps3 the system you love to bash out of no reason. edit @above well i tend to believe you, but if its really true then you should start to choose your words a bit more carefully. Also the claim to have played all mgs games from start to finish is a bit bold. im a active gamer for 24 years now and cant make that statement allthough i played alot of the games.
Metal Gear SOLID - Tactical Espionage Action this seems to be more like Metal Gear Raiden - Lightning Bolt Action I guess Raiden is a multiplat hero.
It has been clear for many moths now that even if MGS4 was exclusive, the franchise MGS was not. If Konami would have guessed that X360 and Ps3 would be both selling this well I think they would have planned it multi platform from the very start. Theres only few 3rd party games this generation which you can consider exclusive. Todays exclusives 3rd party exclusives seem to be more and more tomorrows multiplatform games. Bioshock, Lost planet, Dead rising, Ninja gaiden, Tekken, Overlord, Saints row, Devil may cry, Armored core, Final fantasy + few other Rpg:s. Its very likely that this trend will continue. Only things one can really call exclusives are the games published or developed by 1st or 2nd party. Other than that its actualy more likely that its timed exclusive. Agent might be exclusive for Ps3, but how long? Final fantasy XIV is already looking at other platforms.
What happened is consistent with what Metal Gear Solid has always done. Metal Gear Solid has always gone multiplatform. But the other multi-plat releases were always nerfed is some way. Most often they were delayed releases. But Microsoft has so much money and they are so willing to spend it on one game that everybody expected Konomi would take their money and find some way to put MGS on 360. However, what I did not expect was for Kojima to give the 360 MGS while at the same time not giving MGS to the 360. Sony gets an exclusive PSP game about Snake (all 4 of them) announced at the same time Sony makes a push to sell more PSP units. M$ gets cut in on a multi-plat game about Raiden. It was a brilliant move. 360 fans are happy that they have MGS:anything and PS3 fans are happy because they know that this game won't be as good as MGS4. The Konami execs are happy because they have Microsoft's money. Microsoft is happy because they can finally say the have MGS:something. Kojima-san is happy because he can go on telling the story of Metal Gear Solid on Sony platforms like he clearly wants to without everybody whining. The big deal here is that Sony and Kojima owned all parties involved without the parties knowing it. Think about this for a second..... How much bigger would it have been if MGS:Peace Walker had been the multi-platform game and MGS:Rising had been the PSP exclusive..... It would have been a hundred times bigger. Instead 360 fans got owned because they don't get the true MGS sequel, and PS3 fans got owned because they don't get the true MGS sequel either, unless they buy a PSP.
Metal Gear is exclusive to Sony. You can name Rising anything you want. But it isn't Metal Gear. There was one Metal Gear game announced at E3 and that game is Metal Gear Solid: Peacewalker. That is a Sony exclusive. No Big Boss, no Solid Snake = no Metal Gear. PS - MGS4 is still a PS3 exclusive.
You know what's worse than people downplaying MGSR, when we know nothing about it? Xbox fanboys downplaying MGS4. Sour grapes on both sides.
MGS: Rising is to Metal Gear Solid what Dirge of Cerberus is to Final Fantasy VII
"FF Versus is a just a spin off of FF13 but the funny thing is you guys are all over it....but I thought spin offs sucked ??" Where did you get that from??? FFvs13 is not a spin off, it’s a full game, it has nothing to do with FF13, it has its own story and style, check your info again
I certainly didnt expect MGS to stay PS3 exclusive. They managed to lock down MGS4 which is great but im pritty sure most people expected the next MGS game to be multi.
wait wait wait nobody said it was ps3 exclusive 0.0 it was announced at microsoft press conference first. so what the hell is the point of this article 0.0
Kojima complained about the DL Bluray not beeing enough for MGS4 already, when a MGS5 is announced it will stay on the PS3, if Bluray isn't enough for Kojima, what makes you think that from now on a DVD would be? Kojima already raped MS during the Sony conference when he stressed that the PSP game Peace walker is a true sequel, not a spin off, the MGS4 team is working on it and he is deeply involved, while Rising is beeing developed by the freshmen of Kojima Productions. A MGS game without Kojima isn't worth the attention. The way I see it he just refuses to cut his masterpiece into DVD sized crap so he stays out of it to lessen the pain. Konami drove the multiplatform announcement but Kojima refuses to go along with it. It was strictly a business decision.
On Topic: I DK Off Topic: la chance i want to tell u that i don't forget about u and i did not murder him everyday when i pray. Hope u get better soon
La Chance, and you fail to realize that MGS4 is *still* on the PS3 and MGS: Rising is a spinoff of the series. 360b fanboys wanted MGS4 on the 360 but instead they got this. And it's multiplatform! I'm sure PS3 fans are crying now! -_- Your disagrees change nothing and I laugh at all of you.
well, first off, the mgs series is more guarantied to the Playstation than it is with any other console, fact. the only reason why some people thought mgsr was 360 exclusive was cause Microsoft called it first. but the fact of the matter was they only called it first cause Microsoft's E3 was before all the other companies, and so what went down as Microsoft "supposedly" losing an exclusive was never really a loss in the first place, and that's what people actually failed to see. MS never said it was exclusive and the mgs series was never guarantied to Microsoft in the first place, and so this e3 microsoft (or konami) just wanted to show that the some of the mgs franchise can sprinkle on to other consoles. ( in any sense i wouldn't be surprised to see nintendo getting something as well, twin snakes and super smash bothers were nice nintendo games)
lol @ lachance. He magically knows that every PS3 owner is pissed. If MGS:R is a good game ill buy it. But there is a reason MGS4 was such a masterpiece. It was made by Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions. MGS:R is not, so my hopes for the game are not as high. If MGS5 was announced multiplatform i would probably be abit disappointed just for the fact that it might get watered down to fit on a reasonable amount of DVD9s. I want MGS5 to be an exclusive for the sole purpose of being a better game then if it went multiplatform.
Good article. IF anything Sony stole it from Microsoft because it was announced for the 360 first then for the PS3. Either way it is all stupid, it is simply a Multi-platform game that Microsoft tried to make look like a big deal exclusive when it is not. Microsoft failed on that attempt while The PSP gets the real next chapeter in the Metal Gear Saga. Either way i am still excited for Rising but Microsoft just made themselves look stupid.
Couldn't have said it better.
"I'm sure PS3 fans are crying now! -_- " well you're here replying right? now stop crying and fold me a chicken wrap.
@ La Chance: All Final Fantasy games are spin-offs. Each one has brand new characters, stories, worlds, and play mechanics. Just because they're all called Final Fantasy with the next number tacked on at the end doesn't make it a part of an ongoing universe. I mean, compare Final Fantasy XII to XI to X. Those 3 games are about as different as possible while still staying within the "RPG" genre. Completely different worlds, characters and stories, and the play mechanics are VASTLY different from each other, with one of them being an MMO. So I don't think it's fair to brush off Versus because it's not simply called Final Fantasy with a number at the end. It's not like it's some cash-in side-story developed by nobodies in the Square-Enix offices like Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberus or something. It's a new and distinct project with unique characters, story, and mechanics just like FF XIII is, and it's being headed up by the man behind Kingdom Hearts and many beloved Final Fantasy character creations: he's proven himself, and his work always measures up.
I am not much of a Final Fantasy fan, in fact, the only Final Fantasy I liked was VIII (8), maybe because it's the only Final Fantasy to date that had a 16+ rating, that's why I am excited for Versus XIII because they said it'll be rated 18+. But I do wonder why they haven't showed anything at E3, I sure hope not because they stalled the developement because of the 360 version of XIII...
No one gives a rats ass.The xbots will be too busy playing with little boys like Milo and Gay Tony.Maybe Natal will have virtual issues to wipe away the xbot tears
Its sad ... that as time will pass ... many more PS3 games eventually will lose their exclusivity to Xbox 360. Its just a matter of time.
And same the other way around. Microsoft have been losing exclusivity on quite a few games and more to come. It doesn't pay for third party dev's to stay exclusive any more. Most of the new exclusive games coming out for the PS3 are first and second party, so Microsoft will never get their hands on them.
we get to play it a year in advance , like we give a fk . bots can have all the metal gear . one exclusive goes out 3 more are develop by the biggest first party studios the industry have ever seen. so bots have it am already done playing it .
Actually what is left to take? The first and second party exclusives are not going anywhere.
exclusive content lol idk......
Give it a rest and move on guys/gals..
MS told kojima we dont want old mgs4 we want the new one. He had no choice but to bow down to the 360
"MGSR was announced as a 360 game First so How PS3 lost it?
Please, it's just a game BASED on MGS, not a true MGS. It's not even directed/produced by Hideo Kojima. You just got a spin off, accept it.
@silva Agree. MGS4 is only on PS3. Peace Walker will keep me busy till MGS5 (on the PS3 again, unless something terribly wrong happens) arrives. Gotta love my psp.
Fun fact: The first metal gear was on a microsoft platform, the MSX! :o!!
sony help made the MSX fun fact
Then they put out Metal Gear 1 and 2 for the Nintendo!
Lol @ the disagrees. So it wasn't on the MSX? @Johnny, yeah but after the MSX :p
The MSX platform (or in this case, where MG1 and 2 were developped on, the MSX2) was also distributed by many electronic companies. Among those companies was Sony Corp. @ Johnny Only Metal Gear was ported to the NES, and it was a terrible port at that. MG2 was never ported. Instead, the NES community got the abysmal Snake's Revenge. It was sort of a bastard spinoff like Metal Gear: Rising.
msx was never microsoft project because at that time they did not exist. here some picture of my favorite console at my favorite times
Er NO, not everyone, it was just the 'ChatBot FaceBook Twitter Zombie DLC Lemmings' on the internet who said it was!!! ;-D + SNAKES not in it, SHAME... ;-D
quit crying you know you mad its multiplatform
I thought MGS Rising was claimed by the media to be 360 exclusive. Shouldn't the article be rewritten to "Since when was Metal Gear Rising a 360 exclusive?" Heck I recalled seeing more articles on the possibility of MGSR being 360 exclusive than I did articles saying it's exclusive to the PS platform.
Shhh, apparently people have selective reading capability. Not surprising on this site.
Exactly what the hell is the author talking about? I don't understand what all the fuss is about, the MGS franchise was never excusive to the PS3 or Sony for that matter, MGS was on the original xbox platform it was also on the gamecube it's on mobile phones so people need to relax a bit and understand one thing, All the hupla about MGS going to the 360 was the beloved MGS4 and it's still excusive to the PS3 AND WILL NEVER GO TO 360. Everyone knew going into E3 this year that quite possably Konami was going to announce a multi plat MGS and they did.
You've missed the point. The author is pointing the lunacy that some other publications are displaying by saying Microsoft "stole" another exclusive from Sony with Metal Gear Rising when the game first appeared at Microsoft's booth. Not to mention, the fact that Kojima isn't directing the game and has already disowned it by calling it a spin-off and saying that Peace Walker is the "True" Metal Gear Solid sequel. The author is saying that MGR isn't an authentic MGS experience and so everyone should chill with the non-sense of exclusive stealing because it isn't the case in this situation.
This is just one piece in the "Media is suckling the Microsoft power teet" puzzle. Let's take the following article: http://www.audioholics.com/... 360 apparently one-upped Sony. Their three main points? 1. Natal 2. Rock Band Beatles 3. MGS: R "stolen exclusive" Natal is a glorified eye toy. And MS can blabber on all they want about how they're going to have "hardcore AAA" titles working on it...but I sure as hell don't think we'll ever see those Halo nuts jumping around their living room. I don't think much needs to even be said about Rock Band: Beatles. It's a multiplatform game. It bewilders me that MS is getting credit for showing it off. I guess Sony should get bonus points for Madden 2010 and Assassin's Creed 2, since those were in Sony's presentation. And of course, MGS: Rising. There's a great blog entry about this off the main page: http://www.n4g.com/News-340... MGSR is not a "stolen exclusive." It was announced for the 360 first. If ANYTHING, ps3 and pc "stole" it since Microsoft was trying to dupe people into thinking MGS:R was only going to be on 360. The MG series has been on myriad platforms since it began...MSX, Nintendo, Gameboy, PSX, PS2, Gamecube,PSP, Xbox, PS3, and now 360. So I don't understand how the Xbox-nation is suddenly rejoicing like they've just found the Holy Grail. Feign happiness all you want, here are the facts: 1. MGS:R is multiplatform, so it's not just a 360 exclusive 2. MGS:R is a spinoff and not a true sequel 3. The core gameplay is likely to be QUITE different from an actual Metal Gear Solid game 4. Kojima essentially disowned this game when announcing Peace Walker on the PSP and here's the kicker... 5. You didn't get the game you wanted: MGS4. Stop pretending you're overjoyed about MGS:R when you really wanted 4 and didn't get it. This would be like PS3 owners saying they "stole" Halo if they got the Halo strategy game but not actually a FPS.
That Milo kid will obviously be a seller for losers who have no real life friend and need reassurance from virtua people.
I think the xbots will easily "eat" it up HAHAHA
else think that developers and other companies sit around and chuckle at how their consumers fight each other tooth and nail, while believing in brand loyalty? Please understand...these are not nonprofit organizations...and therefore, companies usually do what is in the best interest of their companies finacially. I would love to see the day where Halo or Gears were exclusive to Sony and Gran Turismo or GOW was exclusive to Microsoft....because so many gamers have become co-cky, arrogant, and carry a strong sense of entitlement...believing that these companies care for them on a personal level. Geeez...I never remember the Genesis/SNES era being this bad.
"FF Versus is a just a spin off of FF13" Sorry, but I don't agree with "your" statement there. FF13 and FFv13 are 2 completely different games. Whats more F'd up and telling the truth, for Kojima to come out right and say for the PSP MGS:PW, "This is a True sequel and not a spin off of the MGS Saga, I will be supervising and writing the script. The MGS4 Team will be behind this production". That's outright a slap in the face to 360 fans, I presume they got agitated by the numerous MGS4 coming to 360 rumors. They decided to just give a game to the 360 to put that to rest.
if i named two games 13 and versus 13 wouldn't anyone's first impression be that they're related? also, why would they chose to call it that unless they are somehow related? like how all of the ff7 games have that in their title or some reference to characters from that game on their covers. we don't know the story, but i'm sure 13 versus will make some connections with 13. since it's on ps3 as well! and stop downplaying mgs rising. it's NOT a slap in that face to anyone. it's going to be an awesome game. when has kojima ever halfassed anything? and to doubt this game is an insult to kojima himself. he wrote metal gear, he can rewrite it, expand it, branch it, and do whatever else he wants to with it.
Its a spin off...thats why it can go multiplat, it'll have nothing to do with continuing the story.. And it was never a ps3 exclusive =P MGS's story is a PS3 exclusive, but METAL GEAR the franchise has many times gone to other consoles =)
The Metal Gear franchise has found its way on The NES,PS1,PS2,PS3,PSP,PC,Game Boy,Game Cube, and the original Xbox. why would you use the term "stolen"... I'd understand all of this excitement if the 360 got MGS4, especially with the claim that it could only be done on the PS3, but they didn't. I really get annoyed with all the boasting, "oh we stole Metal Gear". No you didn't steal it Microsoft... Konami was just kind enough to grace you with its MGS presence once again
You may be the smartest individual on these boards.
wow. Fanboys much? Pathetic
No it not pathetic fanboy, it rather , pathetic idea of making a virtua world were you virtually touch water, wouldn't you rather touch water in real life with SOME REAL LIFE FRIENDS?
for the love of all that is holy stop! Everything that I hate about N4G is in this comment section. Video Games are supposed to be an escape from the crappiness that is daily life. Yet you folks hate yourselves and others so much that you cant help but ruin something good like gaming with constant attempts at one ups manship. Your never gonna win no matter what point you have, your never gonna win because there is nothing to win, but so much to lose. What is there to lose, the fun of gaming. You are murderers and may god have mercy on whiney souls. Naw screw that if there is a god may he smite you for your arrogance and vanity.
Most of these comments prove none of you are real gamers, just fanboys. Shutup and buy both systems unless your mommy would only let you have one. Go get a damn job and pony up the cash like us REAL gamers did.
