Mark MacDonald joins Ryan again, this time to grill the humble host on a range of Metal Gear-related topics in this surprisingly candid edition of The Kojima Productions Report! Hardcore fans -- start your speculations!
Hey people Agree or Disagree
GTA IV > Metal Gear Solid 4
ROFL...GTA!! LOL!!! M$ should have pay 50 mil for MGS...instead addition content for 360...
I haven't played either of those yet, so it's kinda hard to say.
i highly doubt that the last installment of MGS is gonna be beat out by GTA but you never know.
my internet is bit buggy right now....I cant listen to it....so is anybody kind enough to tell me what I missed?
yeah, my internet is not buggy but I am a little occupied what does they say?
Most of it was backtracking and questions related to difficulty. The most interesting part of it, is that he doesn't know if MGS4 will be at E3... He said as of right now it's undecided.
Lies it will be there. Kojima and Konami will show it off again as they always do with their games. New trailer at E3 every year and new trailer at TGS no?
HEHEHE!!! I'm being stupid.... Dream on xbots. DREAM ONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN.
Lay off the Fanboy act a bit.....
he kind of dodged the question in the middle but at the end when he was asked if PS3 hardware sales were noticed or had an effect he pretty much said that they think about it but they have to stay the course and that they are not worried because its being made on the follow up console of the most successful console of all time which would be the PS2 hence that would give me the idea it is a PS3 exclusive.
It said nothing about the 360 whatso ever. IT also talk about content in MGS2 that wasn't included.
Stop trying to start a flame war.
you guys crack me up! anything for a flame war. especially when they have snake's face on n4g
are you deaf or are you just plain stupid mr_kuwabara? don't go to ps3 game links and try to ruin our day. stick to your halo 3 game!
He (Ryan) said that he apologizes for saying that MGS4 was PS3 exclusive on some podcasts back because there really isn't any paper work that confirms this to be true and he was way out of his league of saying this since it's Konami's decision to decide what are there future plans with this game. Kojima just wants to be loyal to his fans and towards Sony which is understandable but Konami is the run who decides what they want towards the game.
For the record I'm a PS3 fanboy, I have all MGS games, I'm planning on buying a PS3 just for this game I don't own an 360 nor a Xbox for that matter. I'm just a guy stating the facts, I post regularly on a MGS board on IGN so yeah I'm a MGS fanboy as well and I'm a fanboy that really doesn't care if the game goes to the 360, the more the merrier I always say.
And @airjordan9 I think you're acting way childish and I don't get why you have to start calling me names. Why can't you act civilized in these situation? It must be the fear of what I said becoming a reality eh?
No he stated nothing about the 360. The only thing 360 related was that his staff play GRAW2...which I am assuming on the 360.
Listen to the podcast again, rethink your response, breathe, and admit error.
And we still take in mind the PS3 logo removed at the end of the MGS4 trailer recently...
MGS4 will be on XBOX 360
Well it could go to the 360 but i sincerely doubt it, then all the comments from kojima deniyng it would hurt his overall image. As for the mart comment they also removed the playstation logo from mgs3 was there a xbox version nobody heard about?
They should downgrade it and put it on PS2 as well if it is possible, way better business decision than 360
its impossible to downgrade a REALLY nextgen title..
real nexgen title is about AI,graphics,... u can downgrade grahix but what about AI .. u cant..
may be they will make sth for Ps2 ( another title ) but Kojima need Cell for his game and for AI.. may be it will be possible on 360 but for sure it wont be on last gen consoles like Wii,Ps2.. may another genre not guns of patroits..
I have a big feeling that that PS3 logo removed is because it may go to pc also, atleast that be good enuff I know for sure is not going wii
=) but then again is just my feelings
Looks at title and game involved,
Staying out of this one.
Nothing in this podcast strikes me as news.history dictates that an wacker version of mgs4 will be on the xbox 360, certainly not in the near future ,its taken them about 2 and half years to produce it for the Playstation 3, it would take at least a year and a half for 360 ,the time i finish playing it on my ps3 i wont care anymore, and plus by then the plot will be revealed . with that said (spoiler alert big boss/solid snake will die)who would want to buy for the 360, it would be a waste of time. Also Sony has had a history of cranking out new an interesting games for each console ,one that spark countless sequels, for example ps1:mgs ,ps2 devil may cry, .i'm looking foward to new games from developers, afterall mgs started on Nintendo first then moved on its the nature of the business you feel me.in summary Sony creates 1# titles that eventual move on.
From what I heard on this podcast sounds like the decision if this game comes to another platform is Konami's NOT Kojima productions which is owned by Konami. Can it come to the Xbox 360 or PC? Yes, but in time. Really I lost interest in the series after the bat [email protected]
If it comes to the Xbox or PC I just hope that some of these die hard Sony loyalists don't lose their freakin mind. It's a video game, why would you be so damn stingy and angry to not want a friend who doesn't own a PS3 to be able to play it. How does this hurt you? I mean heck you even get to play it before anyone else. Calm down and enjoy the game. Folks need to realize that ANY third party game can come to any system this generation. From Xbox 360 , PS3, Wii and all the way down to some PSP and PS2 ports. Unless a game is being backed by it's console manufacturer don't get too comfortable with the idea that the game is exclusive to your system.
Hey bro, I agree with you a hundred percent.
It's not like every other metal gear game was consol exclusive.
MG,MG2,MGS,MGS2 were all multiplatform. The only exclusives were Snake Eater and Portable Ops.
But yeah, I'm a PS3 fanboy and even i don't care to see Metal Gear go multiplatform. The game already sells poorly (7 Million sold on PS2[MGS2]) The more people that can buy it, the more people who can enjoy this awesome game, and then more people would go out and buy PS2's to enjoy the other iterations of the game. (no just kidding but it is true, in order to play the past games, you'd need to get a PS2.)
To be honest there isn't enough consoles sold for either of these two to put it just on the ps3, MGS4 will come to the Xbox 360 without paying a dime. Konami would like to make some money from the game, not just what sony pays them.
11 million plus Xbox 360's
3 million plus ps3's
Hmmmmmmm, what do you think?
Also, after the Xbox 360's fall/winter line up, including HALO 3, there will be more like 16-18 million by the end of year.
Sony may have 5 million by end of year.
Japanese companies do not think install base is vital to a games success. They believe that quality will sell the game, there culture is TQM and loyalty. FFXIII and MGS4 will stay exclusive, not a doubt in my mind. If they thought that the hardware sales may affect the games success they would just put more effort into the game to convince more buyers..
Unlike western companies who just like to toss games into a pool of as meny people as possible in the hope that more people will catch.
Stop insulting the Japanese, they're not as daft as you say. They won't restrict their profits to a 3rd placed console.
No need for the crappy MGS series on 360 we have splinter cell series to be content with. I tried this stupid 3rd one on my ps2, and couldn't go beyond the f(king swamp area. The AI could see me from 1 mile away. $hitty game.
Instead of you speculation of its going to 360..if you wanna play for sure just get a ps3 ....instead of spreading rumors...if you cant afford it just play ya little gears of war or splinter cell...One thing we know for sure is it will be on ps3 first and formost..
Spend $600 on a console just to play 1 game that has no release date in sight and will have a better version ported over - that's the best advice I've heard.
This game is gonna be amazing. There is no way the 360 is gonna be able to compete with this
I repeat, Metal Gear Solid 4 will not come to the Xbox 360 in the next 2 years. You will get a Metal Gear Game, but it won't be Metal Gear Solid 4. The Xbox 360 will not be able to handle the current game in it current format becuase MGS4 will use over 30 GBs of space on the bluray disc.
I could care less if the 360 or the Wii gets it. I get sick of reading you people flame about the 360 & PS3. Bad enough if the 360 get's the port or not. Hell, let it be an PS3 excuslive. People acting like the 360 don't get it (or the Wii), it's the end of the world. I have to much on my plate to worry about one game,...
Spinter Cell: Conviction
Half Life 2
Project Gotham 4
Left for Dead
Kane & Lynch
Out of all these games I just names, MGS 4 is the only one people think about?!!
still crying for MGS4 how about show some proof that it will go to the 360.
the japanese supported the gamecube more than the first xbox
Every Metal Gear game has seen significant drop-off in sales from it's predecessor. Even Final Fantasy has shown it's power and majesty has waned over the past ten years. My point is that I think MGS4 will most likely be a best seller, but will not push adoption of new PS3s, especially if the price of the PS3 is still $499 when MGS4 comes out.
Grand Theft Auto has lost it's gleam also, but is still very popular and Microsoft scored a coup by getting Rockstar to release it first on the 360.
Yeah that's true, MGS3 snake eater only sold 3.96 million on an install base of over 100 million. That's something that still amazes me till this very day. Same goes for God Of War 2, very poor sales for an install base of over 100 million.
I don't understand why anyone would want a port of the game. I hate ports. I own a 360, a ps3, and a wii. I owned all the previous hardwares (and those before it) ports have problems, they have to cater to all systems, neither game can really shine. If GTA was a ps3 only game, it could be huge, more characters, more music, more everything. But no, MS needs GTA so hands big payoff to get it for day 1. I'm glad Final Fantasy is PS3 exclusive. I want something to take advantage of my system.
I love metal gear solid series. It was the MAIN reason I got a psx (this and resident evil), I bought a ps2 for metal gear solid 2 (actually I think it came out the same day the xbox did),(and I bought a gamecube to play RE) and I got a ps3 in hopes of MGS3.
Metal Gear solid 2 was ported to the xbox, and the original was ported (with extra content and re-done graphics) to the gamecube. I see no reason why they cannot port this to the 360 in a couple of years. But please don't water the game down so it can be ported to the 360.
I love gears of war on the 360, I do not think it would be as good if it was on the ps3 and xbox (especially if it was a same day title) the graphics would be worse for both to overcome the flaws of both systems.
From reading forums, it seems to me xbox 360 only owners are incredibly cheap, and very greedy, they want everything in the world ported for the 360.
WTF, when did the general public want ports? It's bad enough we have EA handing out broken games, and mediocre updates, do we really need good games to be ported?
I'm going to be having a blast playing mass effect when it comes out. I do not want it to be on the ps3, as it could not be the best it could be if it was. I try and buy games for the platform they were developed for. I do not advocate ports, I hope the rabid 360 fanboys will shut up about having this game ported. If you really want to play it that bad, buy a ps3. It's not like there will not be other games that are exclusive that you want to play as well.
The internet exploded when it appeared to most that a new version of the trailer was on display on the Anniversary website, with better effects, different filters and a vastly improved frame rate, but the truth is that version of the video is from Leipzig in August 2006.
It's not new.
I f*cking hate this site. I'm deleting my profile and never coming to this battle zone for flamers ever again. I remember when I used to go to xbox360news.com but now that is gone because it merged with this N4G. It should be renamed Sales Stats 4 Gamers or Flamers 4 Gamers because this is all it has come to now. Every PS3 owner and 360 owner battling over a retarded subject like video games. This is not Politics people! Videos games are a form of entertainment. Goodbye flamers and good riddance to this f*cking site.
Then shut up and leave!
Before we tie you up to a tree, fvck you up the arse and jerk
you off................ show you how we treat perverts around here!
This MGS may sell better as it has more new features than the last one did.
Pretty much 2 & 3 were same sort of thing as the PS1 game. New graphics, few adjustments and couple of new touches to game play will not sell the game, nor will reviews stating how long and frequent the cut scenes are.
If it is a complete overhaul of gameplay and controls then it could shift systems. From what I have seen it might just be that very different.
