E3 07: Metal Gear Solid 4 Confirmed PS3-Only, Kojima Retires from MGS

During its E3 2007 press conference in Culver City, Sony Computer Entertainment America confirmed that Kojima Productions' anticipated sequel Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is indeed a PlayStation 3 exclusive. It will release simultaneously worldwide in early 2008.

"The story for Snake will end, and also, for me as a game creator, this will be my last involvement in the series," said Kojima. He noted that all of the series' plotlines and mysteries will be resolved.

Period. Metal Gear is a Konami property not Sony. Sony has tossed around the word "exclusive" way too much this E3, even when we know damn well saying UT3 and Haze are "exclusives" is a falsehood.

When Konami's president says its likely to be multiplatform, and then Sony makes this "declaration" of exclusivity, I question the truthfulness.

When it comes from Konami, I'll believe it, until then its just Sony Bluster.

It will remain a PS3 exclusive, they said it a few times on stage with Kojima. Get over it.

Dude, deal with it. It aint coming to your 360.

The creator stated it, do you need more proof?

Good point and I agree. But can you please add KZ2 to that list. This game seems to be breaking the scene. Although I know Halo3 will be great, have you seen anything as seemless as KZ2.

Yes... please... let it go. SONY is allowed to keep at least ONE exclusive...

Finally, possibly one good reason for people to jump on the PS3 band-wagon...

This can only mean good things for SONY.

ShiftyLookingCow4028d ago

Kojima is going to make sure its PS3 exclusive.

BaMYouRDeaD4028d ago

Are you serious? Just give it up already. It's not going multi platform. If you want MGS4 buy a PS3. You have Halo and Gears just as Sony has MGS4 and FFXIII. If you want a Sony exclusive buy the Sony system. If you want a MS exclusive buy the MS system. If you want a Nintendo exclusive buy the Nintendo system. OK?

"When Konami's president says its likely to be multiplatform, and then Sony makes this "declaration" of exclusivity, I question the truthfulness."

Ok, Konami's president said they might make it multi platform. MGS4 has always been officially exclusive on the PS3. Rumors, speculation, and an executive saying 'maybe', do not change facts. You're acting like it has been 360 exclusive all along and Sony all of a sudden snatched it exclusively for PS3. Get over it. I hope there will be no more storys about MGS4 exclusivity, as Sony's press conference has put the rumor to rest.

Ok? So just stop it before you get more disagrees than you already do.

let it go bro! oh konami is the publisher the one making the game is kojima-san so if he donsn`t make a 360 version it wont appear on x-box by magic.

cuco334028d ago

but there's no denying that konami is who says where it goes. kojima makes it, konami distributes it. they won't need kojima to make the ported version, thats what freelancers and other komami personnel are for. so if it were to come, it'ld be a timed exclusive at best. again, i dont think it'll come.
