Forget the rumors, the rumblings and the chatter. There is evidence why Metal Gear Solid 4 is a PS3 exclusive. Hard evidence. Hit the jump for the top ten reasons why you won't see MGS4 for the Xbox 360. For now at least.
Lmao..#9 takes the cake.
Not the gaming cake, mind you =p
Where are ALL those Xbots who keeps saying that the 360 has better graphics.....
Gimmie a break....
I love that article, but it won't stop the rumors. Still, this nearly completely shuts it down. They should've added the interview with Moore when he said he wanted it but it didn't happen.
Regardless, I'll being linking to this article every rumor :)
hit the jump 0_o
man i want a slice of that cake, looks great.......oh and the game does too :P
The gaming cake (3) and SIXAXIS (9) are the coolest ones but the mobile and movie (5 & 6) are the strongest reasons IMO. But even with them there is still place for doubt. Silent Hill was also a Konami games and Sony Pictures also has the movie rights of the series and is making Silent Hill 2 movie BUT, Silent Hill 5 went multi.
Nice find and list. I want to have:
1.One of those cakes.
2.One of those T-Shirts that Kojima is wearing with MGS4 on it.
3.MGS4, the game it self.
But i still can't believe that people think that it might come to the XBOX 360. This man takes great pride in his work (Kojima) He worked his ass off for the past 20 years and only published his games for Sony why would this be so different. He's gonna end in a good note. He wants to give all his loyal ps fans a good farewell game.
What's the point of playing MSG4 on xbox if you've never had the first 3 released?? I don't understand the concept behind that?? It's PS3 exclusive and that's it. Stop focusing on this problem as move on. It's exclusive that's it that's all. Get on with it. Game editors like to make it seem like it's coming to Xbox, but they just want attention. The man himslef said it was PS3 exclusive what more of a proof do u people want. Do u want God to come down to earth and say it's exclusive for u people to believe. Xbots stick to ur threads. (Made this comment regarding the spam that's about to follow.)
wanted to say MGS 1 was also on Gamecube, PC, and Gameboy. MGS 2 also on xbox and PC. MGS 3 was PS2 exclusive. What will decide all this is how many PS3's and copies of the game are sold; if every PS3 owner buys this game and Konami has the biggest success with this game and makes enough money, it'll stay exclusive. If not, it might jump ship like the other 2 metal gear solid games, cause in the end Konami Suits decide where MGS4 goes, not Kojima.
this game will be best on ps3, always. ports can suck balls
I agree that the amount of game units sold MIGHT eventually be a deciding factor on wether or not MGS4 multiplat actually happens but, it would have to be an EXTREMELY low number. After watching the demo, I honestly don't see that happening.
Besides, it's a safe bet that MGS4 will sell AS MANY PS3s as GeOW sold 360s (or maybe even as many as Halo3 WILL sell 360s this fall).
MGS4 IS a system seller, so in a way the game is actually expanding it's own market.
funny article 9 was great :D, but the rumors and debunking of rumors is kinda redundant at this point...
love that man. bcuz everything is not about money. and hardcore mgs fans that r waitin 4 it 2 come out 2 get a ps3 r gonna get it on ps3. there not gonna wait a year in a half to play it on a another console. lol. which im not sure if they will ever put it on 360 bcuz most people who play mgs r hardcore fans of it and there gonna pay the money 4 the ps3, which im sure will be around 450 by the time mgs hits. and we know what happen last time they put it on a xbox. it sold horrible. they know that there gonna sell ps3's wit this game. and if they ever annouced some bootleg version 4 the 360,they might think it would sell horrible on ps3 bcuz they probably would think people wouldnt buy it anymore, the casual ones that is. so this is really a game that could only sell well on multiplatforms if it was released the same day...............not a year in half later. so dont expect this to be on 360........................and if it did, nowhere near anytime soon. besides kojima just said to his buddy, ITS FOR THE PS3 HARDWARE. get over it cuz u guys cant play all those games cuz ur 360 wont be back for another month.lol
and not to mention, sony is making a movie 4 them, and they have a great relationship, why would they turn there back on sony, the only thing u guys got from them is silent hill so they could make a alittle bit of extra money. they said if ps3 sells they would keep silent hill exclusive, if they made that multi, dont u think they would have already mentioned mgs4. last time they trusted microsoft, they got screwed over............and u 360 fanboys just want it 2 bash sony, u guys dont really want the game. and if any of u do, u would just go buy the system when it comes out which by then, mark my words wont be 600 dollars.
how would this thing ever run on the core anyway?
All I know is that people who receive OXM may be thinking differently right now. That's all I'm going to say unless someone wants to know more.
The game looks really cool by the way.
Edit: Hey, I don't think that comment made me deserve to have bubbles taken away. All I'm saying is that OXM is spreading a different rumor around. In no way was this a bad comment, it's just something I read today. If you disagree, you could maybe tell me why...
That part in the OXM mag was in the "RUMOR" section. And to add insult to injury, The oxm magazine was in production BEFORE e3 kicked off and BEFORE kojima, jack, peter, and phil made the "exclusive" statments.
Yes, it is the rumor section, I know this. I'm just saying that the "rumor mole" is hardly ever wrong. I apologize, but usually the rumors turn out to be correct that are in that section, I guess I'm wrong.
You should understand that EVERY story about MGS4 on XBox is a rumour. Rumours with no fact behind them and we're just a little bit sick of hearing them.
Anyway trane07 is right, that would have been written way before E3 and certainly before 2 new product which turned out to be playstation game were announced. This should put an end to it now, everyone whos anyone including me ;) has stated its NOT happening.
Anyway, thats my opinion, and I never touched your bubbles.
YYYYEEEESSSS, I KKKKNNNNOOOOWWWW
I know that every piece of MGS4 on 360 is a rumor. I just felt like this one was more credible. And like I said, I was wrong. And I know your sick of the rumors so sorry for bringing it up!
Now go start hyping PC ports on your x360 xbugs this is game over.
Yes Kojima is loyal to his fans and sony. i wish i could say the same about capcom with dmc4 : / but i cant. anyway mgs4 game video looked stunning. this game will rock!
Forget the movie, forget the phone game, flowers, booze and cakes.
There are 4 REAL reasons why this game is EXCLUSIVE to PS3.
1. It was built from the ground up to run on Cell.
2. Kojima's vision is bigger than 9 Gigabytes.
3. Not only do they want the game to be on the most powerful hardware and therefore the best the game can possible be, they want it to sell in JAPAN.
4. BECAUSE HIDEO KOJIMA FKN WANTS IT THAT WAY !!
Now I've held off from gloating or rubbing it in peoples faces about MGS4 staying with PS3 AGAIN, so can we please let his go now. Not only was it not announced for Xbox but PS3 got ANOTHER Metal Gear Solid game you wont be getting. PSP got a MGS game, and even mobile phones got a MGS games. Face it, the man, for whatever reason has no love for Xbox. Probably because of the pride he takes in his work and want his countrymen to buy it. He's lucky to have Sony, and they are lucky to have him.
Now I suggest if you're really hanging out for MGS and you still hate PS3 or whatever childish reason, you should go by a mobile phone.
its true, it requires more than 9 gb of space for this game, no way a 360 disc can support this game, let alone the 360 console, cuz its developed for the cell proccessor
Kojima seems to have alot of love for Sony. The MGS2 digital comic for PSP, the MGS Sony Ericsson and the Sixaxis controller that Snake uses for the MK bot, rofl.
The strongest reason is Kojima has said it. Tretton has said it. I will take Kojima's word over some reliable source from official xbox machine. The movie is also a very valid reason. MGS4 is going to be a great game and no one can dispute it so if you wanna play it get to saving that 500 bucks
"8). Hideo told Luke it was for the PS3. No way he could lie to Luke. No way." Finis
Hey, where are the Xbox fans?? I guess the game is sooo good they cant really find anything to bash at it. LOL. To much love for the game. Cant wait
sorry, meant to say PS3 haters, not necessarily Xbox fans,
no need to draw the xboys out. MGS is a very powerful game and right now i actually do feel kinda sorry for 360 owners for not having this game. Its a powerful game and everybody wants it hands down just became my most anticipated game ever. So lets just take it easy on the xbox fans for a while. If they werent so arrogant about MGS coming to 360 i would totally want them to get it but now that i have seen what we are getting coupled with that arrogance i cant help but look at my ps3 and smile
Nobody's bragging here. We're fans of the game and we want to know what's going to happen with one of our favorite series.
@ Skizelli below: Wrong. We don't want the game watered down to meet the play criterea of multiple consoles. We want a blu-ray capacity game, playing from a HDD installed Cell-chip console with native 1080p outputs.
Why is MGS4 on 360 such a threat to PS3? Why try so hard to debunk the rumors and throw it in the Xfans' faces? As a fan, I'd think you'd want the game to succeed, despite what it came out for. The only purpose of this "news" is to stir up more dust over the subject. It's old. This is definitely not concrete proof if it ever will or not, but take it as you will. If it doesn't, it doesn't and if it does, it does. Either way, all factions will be enjoying some great games.
to play the game and look through some girly mags : )
I doubt someone like Peter would do such a thing. It shows that he has respect and overall a more charismatic person. =P
Yet the rumors will never go away.If you want to play Mgs4 Buy a PS3. Bubbles please!
I'm proud to say I'm a fan.
oh yes times like these it feels so damn good to be a PSWii60 owner. im going to go back and play through all the games again. but i cant seem to play MGS PO, im not much of a handheld guy. my bro has the game on his PSP but like i said i cant really stand handhelds.
first thing ill do is salute to my own screen then spank my back for the time I been seating down watching this game get closer to me and my ps3. I would of love it for my xbox360 but I admit this is a really true nextgen game that needs to run on a nextgen console. cell proves it all. I dont get tier of sayinf it but im very happy to own both consoles. maybe ill get a wii when mariokart comes out
that cake is *AWESOME!
i don't know if i'd be able to eat it though...
is bigger then 9GB lol that was a classic
that rumour is pretty much dead...notice theres no MS fans in here..they know its true...game looks great even the online seems to be coming along great..
another great day for SONY
Sorry guys but PROBABLY will be. Even KOTAKU know this as they undermined the whole article from the outset by putting the following quote on the intro: "Hit the jump for the top ten reasons why you wont be seeing MGS4 on the Xbox 360. FOR NOW, AT LEAST".
"For now, at least". Means exactly what it says. No one knows for definate but I wouldnt be so sure of yourselves either way. I reckon its about 70/30 in 360's favour right now.
Only time will tell. But im putting my money on it being out for 360 by holidays 08.
I have both consoles so im not bothered either way for any of you that care!
I'd be careful what you say on here, because I got bubble demoted for mentioning a new rumor :(
I guess it's just best to leave the whole situation alone for a while.
First he pulled Xbox honcho Takashi Sensui for a quick interview hopefully getting some answers. Then, he writes 10 hard facts why MGS4 is ps3 only, then ends his article "at least for now" lolz. You gotta give it to this guy, he really wants the game bad for Xbox. He's really persistent. For me, reasons #1,#4, #8, and #9 pretty much solidifies the exclusivity.
1.Kojima has been making it with only PS3 in mind.
2.Even if Konami wants to port it to 360, it won't be Kojima production doing it.
3.And you think it's gonna be gd?
(History shows that xbox's MGS2S port was not as good and its sale was down straight bad; they kept screaming for it, but they just weren't buying it...)
People buy 360 for FPS, buy PS3 for Action Adventure; it's that simple.
No one buys a PS3 for Killzone2 or a 360 for Blue Dragon; and Konami KNOWS that.
who love this game
plz return the favor (xbox fanboys keep takin em)
I already gave you some pos. feedback (not sure why X.F.s would take them like you said...)
But I have a question: So, this and Metal Gear Online are two seperate games right? and if so, is there any chance they would be bundled?
@dragon - I gave you one. Hope that helps
@drpepper - you should have stated that you didn't know that the OXM rumors were published before E3. I remember you saying you've been out for awhile so you probabliy missed that. I gave you +rep regardless. Hope that helps too. As for your question, if the single player is as big as Kojima stated it (ie 50gb big) then the multiplayer will be in separate disc but bundled in one game just like in MGS3: Subsistence.
@dr pepper - thanks, I appreciate that.
Yeah, I was in Germany (it really is true, they have great beer) for a month and missed out on a lot of the news (guess I sort of payed the price). Thanks for the pos. feedback and you shall receive some as well.
so after soo long all sony fans can breath. Its just a matter of time before the rumours start again. But till then...BUBBLE TO ALL SONY FANS! and ...xbox 360 ones who are good sports -.-..
still don't know why one of my bubbles was taken. I'm just an honest, open minded gamer who plays games for fun and doesn't support one company as if it were a cult.
You have a bubble from me, Arsene_WANGer.
As do you Bilzac, bubble for you.
add my ps id, Jdash24
will be getting plenty of good online games as their released
guitar hero 3, rock band, warhawk, the agency, killzone 2, metal gear solid online, ect.
I still do not belief that MGS4 is only for PS3...
Its strong reasones only to make it temporary exclusive...
With 360 wide spread you have to belief that its coming to xbox world..
Sony CANNOT afford to let this one go. Plain and simple.
They've lost too many exclusives already but, they know, just like we know, MGS4 will move millions of PS3s for them. If they have to keep just one exclusive, they know this is it.
They're gonna do EVERYTHING they have to do, no matter what, EVEN if it includes every Sony executive having to get down on their knees to give Kojima a sloppy, drooly deep throat.
that lovely lady in your avatar would do. ;)
and oddly enough, that's exactly what she does for a living!
Btw, my avatar is a PS3 skin =)
The last Kojima Product. I hope the game becomes more important than whatever console its exclusive to.It looks to be a brilliant game and IMO should garner all the success it deserves rather it remains a PS3 exclusively or not.
I really could care less if it winds up on 360. As we all know it was built ground up for the PS3 cell so it(PS3 Version) would still be the superior version. Theres also no need to have multiple disc for the PS3 version as would be required for 360.
Hell. if it does wind up being ported im sure 360 owners wouldnt care how many disc it would take to play MGS4, it still will be a great gaming experience for the bots and more doe and success for Konami.
It would be wise for Sony to lock this one up because it WILL sell PS3's and if not, I guess more than PS3 owners will be rejoicing in the name of Kojima.
does anyone know when the beta will be launched or how to sign up for it, or if its even coming to NA
any info would be much appreciated
You need to 1st sign up for Konami to get the Konami ID.
Use a translater to understand all the Japanese, and your name need to be in japanese or chinese.
is guys like the mart that will just run to the next rumor like ffxiii and vs xiii going to 360.
capcom has always put games on multiple systems,so there was no surprise there.but i'm not impressed in the new capcom that would kill CLOVER(and didn't advertise their games).
namco has always supported sony in the arcade and at home.but their game sales excluding tekken have slipped over the years.new markets mean new potential buyers.
sega needs more platforms to make money after the years of losses then getting bought by sammy.
nintendo would never submit to a microsoft purchase.they are riding high now and making money as always.
square could have got bought but merging with enix means japanese rpg powerhouse and security.even defectors like sakaguchi won't be able to stand against these two companies that have become one.
then there is konami.after most devs leaving after making contra 3,axley and castlevania4 and forming treasure(gunstar heroes,radiant silvergun,guardian heroes,etc.hideo kojima IS KONAMI.and what he says goes.like team ninja and itagaki.just like itagaki has kept tecmo afloat,kojima has kept konami afloat.without him,there is no konami.even with the silent hill series.
good job kojima in sticking to your guns.it's not always about money.even if money is passed.it's about loyalty and saying what system you wanted to put MGS4 on because you worked long enough to earn what you want to do.and not let fanboys dictate what you should do with lies and rumors.
ps3 deserves an exclusive.and this game is about the best there is. even with good modern day imitators.
XBOX fans and Sony haters have gone very quiet on posts like these.
Edit.. Yey!! I now have 1 bubble, I have managed to peeve off so many XBOTS. Mission Accomplished.
what ever helps you sleep at night bro lol i knew from the start that this wasn't coming to the xbox 360
Yet i get the sense this games has plenty of chatter and ramblings. Just got through watching the MGS4 video. Whats the big Deal? it looks "pretty good" with a bunch of pointless rambling that could even bore Japanese gamers. Its the weakest Japanese Drama and nonsense i'v ever heard.
Its always funny how excited PS3 fans get.
the "we never wanted this POS" parade is underway and PoG is the grand marshall.
Here we go again.....<sigh>
I think the biggest reason is MGO and MGS4 are seperate titles. Kojima making 2 games means he's trying to make extra money on MGO, so the president of Konami can approve going PS3 exclusive. I can see MG0 being $30 on the PS network and MGS4 being $60 like any other game.
Send me that MGS4 T-shirt!! I love it!
will this rumour never die??! the game has been built using playstation development tools, there for, if this game ever (and i doubt it will) makes it to other formats, that includes pc's not just 360's it will take years, you cant simply port a game like this over night, if at all!
simply put, the gaming industry is there to make cash same as any other, sooo if enough copies sell on the ps3 there will be no need for cross platform and if you own a ps3 your gonna own this game, long time MGS fan or not!
