MGS4 statement disappears from article

Yesterday, Yahoo JP's article contained a statement from Konami at TGS 2008 that they were considering porting MGS4 to Xbox 360. Today, that same article has been edited and no longer contains any mention of MGS4 at all.

In its place, Konami states that in the future they will pursue a multiplatform strategy.

Babelfish Translation:
"While utilizing the feature of each platform, in the future and it does multi-platform development", ([konami] Public Relations Dept. room monitor Nakazima Chiaki the person) with we have done, say it may that the same company multiple it develops the plural powerful brands and by the fact that balance well it sells, it is arranging the body which aims toward the achievement enlargement which is stabilized.

Sony is pulling some strings ;)

Plain and simple MGS4 will not go to another console. Now as for any future MGS releases that's up in the air. Problem is that if it goes multi-plat the PS3 should be the lead console and then ported down to the XBox 360. Otherwise it will have to be developed with the least common denominator in mind and well, we all see how that goes.

ThatCanadianGuy3681d ago

I honestly don't care if the next Metal gear game goes multi
I thought that MGS4 had the perfect ending for (IMO) the best game ever made.Im content with The finale of Solid snake.

It'a time to pass the story on to someone else.And it just means more people will get to experience the amazing story telling of
Hideo Kojima.I don't see what's wrong with that.

As long as PS3 is the lead platform.

MGS4 is only possible on PS3

MGS4 uses 50 gig Blu Ray

MGS4 uses data streaming capability of CELL

MGS4 /5/6/7 all will be exclusive to Playstation brand

Plus console war is over ---thanks to LBP

Realistically, everyone should know by now that if you wanna play METAL GEAR SOLID 4....you must buy a PS3 to play it on. You can then use purchased ps3 to further entertain yourself(music,video,photos,in ternet). Then i highly suggest you buy DARK KNIGHT on BLURAY, and truly experience next gen picture quality and SOUND.

I wonder why ps3 owners are not obsessed with halo3......or any other games for that matter that are exclusive to the mighty x360

"I wonder why ps3 owners are not obsessed with halo3......or any other games for that matter that are exclusive to the mighty x360 "

you are really a funny man lol

anyway , Halo 3 was developed by Bungie which was first party deve and It was published by M$ , so there is no way in hell is gonna be released on the ps3 . MGS4 is a third party exclusive . I hope you see the differences lol

DARKKNIGHT3681d ago (Edited 3681d ago )

you know whats funny? You quoted me : "I wonder why ps3 owners are not obsessed with halo3......OR any other games for that matter that are exclusive to the mighty x360"
your english fails you my friend

you know whats even funnier? that i cant even count how many times this "DREAM port" was proved false.RoR

question: Is there even such a thing as x360 exclusive, or are they all on pc/timed/purpo$ely delayed?

TheSadTruth3681d ago

Little Big Planet is a good game, but it's no Super Mario.

OgTheClever3681d ago

No, it goes above and beyond Super Mario.

"you know whats even funnier? that i cant even count how many times this "DREAM port" was proved false.RoR"

Uhm, that's not really a reason as to why MGS4 wouldn't show up on MGS4. Why do I say that? Simply cause I can't count how many times BioShock was denied in going to the PS3..

No Way3681d ago

I mean.. Uhm, that's not really a reason as to why MGS4 wouldn't show up on 360.

hehe. =)

AAACE53681d ago

If by some remote chance MGS 4 did come to 360... The fanboys would jump on the defensive ans say... "MS paid for it!" or "Konami is getting greedy like SquareEnix!" or some kind of biased, angry comment!

Multiplat from 3rd parties is the future people! Get used to it! Not saying MGS 4 will hit 360, but alot of developers will lean toward multiplat because the cost of making these games is too much to risk on one console!

If MGS4 goes to the Xbox360, i will loose all respect for Hideo Kojima. Honestly it is the Last epic 3rd party exclusive game we have.

Shane Kim3681d ago

Are you crazy son. It's still the same game on PS3.

Exorgasm3681d ago

You would no longer respect the man behind what most people believe to be the best game this generation because he would allow the game to be enjoyed by a wider audience? All respect gone because he might want to make more money or make it available to more gamers and didn't concern himself with pathetic console-loyalist shenanigans?

You are a sad strange little man. You have my pity.

juuken3681d ago

It wouldn't be Kojima's fault if this game went multiplatform though. :/

morganfell3681d ago

Well it would be because Kojima has the authority to stop it. When Studios wanted to make a Metal Gear Movie (Sony won out) they had to negotiate with Kojima, not Konami.

cereal_killa3681d ago

I don't think that it would be Kojima's fault if it goes to the 360 he has stated several time that "it (MSG4) will not go to the 360 so stop asking " if Konami decided to port MSG4 to the 360 I doubt that Kojima will even be involved in it..

Plus to be honest why are fanboys getting all giddy for another game (rumored) going multi-plat I personally would be getting pissed at M$ spending (wasting) money on games going multi-plat or exclusive DLC for usless games (Tomb Raider) instead of investing money into getting some up n coming developers to make a new and innovated games.
