Joystiq interviews MGS4's Ryan Payton: "There is space for three consoles"

Joystiq decided to sit down with one of the men behind Metal Gear Solid 4. Namely, Konami's Ryan Payton, who has the enviable position of being one of the Assistant Producers on MGS4. He is also one of the extremely few Westerners working on this title. Mind you, he is fluent in Japanese and is currently living over there, which certainly makes things a bit easier.

Joystiq: Well, how are you handling the speculation at this point? There's been a lot of discussion about MGS4 appearing on the Xbox 360.

Ryan Payton: We like the console, it's fun and there are a lot of great titles for it. But, we're committed to the PS3. We want the PS3 to be successful, and we've had a great history with the PlayStation. So it's a PS3 exclusive title, now having said that ... questions like this don't bother me. The questions that bother me are ones like, "Are you worried that the Xbox 360 is stealing exclusives from the PS3" or whatever. I think that the industry really needs to grow up and get away from this Xbox vs. PlayStation mentality.

The story is too old to be commented.

" I think that the industry really needs to grow up and get away from this Xbox vs. PlayStation mentality."

While I think the industry needs to grow up a little its actually that mentality that provides competition! Without it, there would be no great games. We NEED ps3 vs xbox360, ultimately it decides who is the winner in this 'war' and also produces great games along the way.

And this is so the fanboys can get crazy:
ps3 > xbox 360

we know and no your dreams won't come true and it is a ps3 exclusive go cry in the corner you sorry excuse for a journalist.

my favorite line was "I think that the industry really needs to grow up and get away from this Xbox vs. PlayStation mentality." mmmm that would be the day :)

Even if the industry got away from it, the losers in here wouldn't.

Don't you have a woman to bang? Breeder.

Insults can go both ways. I didn't say anything to you, the fanboys know who they are.

fenderputty3706d ago

day when somones opinion is downplayed simply because of sexual orientation. I guess I'm rather liberal living in Southern California but, I sure am glad I don't classify myself amongst the ignorant and hatefull class of right winged Americans that exist today.

It isn't a bad opinion either. Fanboyism is kind of funny and pathetic at the same time and, this site if full of it.

On a side note, I'm glad MGS4 will remain PS3 exclusive. lol

keep you comments relevant to this post (or at least GAMES).

No one wants to hear how much you hate gays. There will always be different opinions, who are you to criticize people?

sunnyhours3706d ago

Save the gay-bashing for the klan meeting... ignorant redneck. Last I checked, this was a site about games.

Konami and square show loyalty unlike capcom. capcom should be ashame of themslefves.

PS360WII3706d ago

You need to let that go. Square Enix is making plenty of games outside of Sony and even brought their bigger than FF game to the DS.

mistertwoturbo3706d ago

well capcom has always been a multi platform company. they'll come out for whatever console is available. so you cant really blame them. if anything, capcom should be applauded for not "choosing sides" in this ridiculous war. like ryan payton says, there's enough room for three consoles. the mentality of todays gamers are stupid. i don't get how someone can hate a console simply because they own the other one.

where are the good ol days where people used to just sit down, and talk about the games. half the threads i see on forums is always about "oh this version will be better than the other version"

it's quite simple, if you want to play gears of war, halo, mass effect, dead rising, pgr4 etc. buy a 360 and just enjoy that thing. stop worrying about "oh pgr4 is better than gt5" or "mgs4 is coming to the 360!"

if you want to play ffxiii, mgs4, gt5, god of war 3 (eventually) then just get a damn ps3. you cant have the cake and eat it. well, only to those who can afford all 3 systems.

i actually do have all 3 systems and the most least played system happens to be the wii. i'm sorry, as fun as it was at first. i'm just too used to the graphics of pc games, the 360, and the ps3 to play a wii game anymore.

so if anything, let's sit down and be gamers. whether it's x360, ps3, pc games, or wii. we all have one thing in common. we like to play games. and let's just worry about the games, not the stupid "war." nobody is getting paid by microsoft, sony, or nintendo. it's all in your heads.

ash_divine3706d ago

I don't know about that one, but I agree that people do need to let the capcom thing go. I admit I was upset at first(and I do find a bit ironic that they said they were loyal because they have history and thats one of the main reasons people were angry, because they had history aswell.) Now that Ryan Peyton showed his loyalty every ps3 owner's going to hate capcom for sure.

PS360WII3706d ago

Yea Dragon Quest is a monster for sure. What FF can sell worldwide DQ can do in Japan alone then some.
