VG247: Konami's labelled this morning's green Metal Gear teaser as "speculation" and has refused to comment on the matter. "I am afraid that Konami does not comment on speculation," said a spokesperson to videogaming247.com earlier today.
Current bid: DSi/iPhone + Ac!d = Game ON. Green light literally means On The Go (mobile?) Unlikely bid: MGS Trilogy (MGS1-3) remake for 360, 3 DVDs set as MGS4 on 360 is still unlikely.
It's MGS 4 360. Gotta be.
its the ps3 power on symbol.
I find it hard to be MGS4 for 360. First of all alot of content has to be pulled out. Second, It's not like MGS4 sold poorly on the PS3. Its 4.7 million copies. But hey, I could be wrong.
Unlikely to be MGS4 on 360. Most likely to be Metal Gear Ac!d Most likely a DSi game. The power button is a universal symbol.
Nowhere in that message does it say,to me at least, that it is a 360 title. More likely a mobile game.
360-exclusive. Quote me.
Oh Kojima is obviously hinting at all the gadgets in the next Metal Gear will be energy efficient. Everything will solar powered, wind powered, water powered etc. This also means no 360 version because with all the fautly hardware Kojima does not want to make a graphics intensive game that would contribute to more hardware failures than there already is. Oh shoot in 4 minuites n4g will run out of energy and shutout. Kojima was right!
"A" next Metal Gear Solid... "A"c"!"d Emphasis on the vowels, and the world "next" The last one could still be 360 or PC, maybe even both... But I think it's an Ac!d game
The symbol at the end looks like the one in the middle of the on/off button for the 360, so it is possible that there is a MGS game coming to 360! Even though MGS 4 sold extremely well on Ps3, Konami does love their money... Remember they ported MGS 2 over to Xbox 1. So I wouldn't rule it out. Now that MGS 4 has sold to many Ps3 owners, they could have been using this time to alter the game for the 360! I can't remember who, but some MS person said a couple weeks ago, that there will be some surprises for 2009 for the 360... and after the FFXIII announcement... I believe anything is possible!
its metal gear vs halo game.
its gonna be mgs4 subsistance (or w/e the expansion is called) coming to 360 and ps3. !( means MGS4) + !(the other way around means the extra content and VR training) = (360 power button which is green)
Funny how all big 360 surprises is games becoming multiplatform. I really hope for 360 owners sake that they have something more to look forward to then games going multiplat in 09. Like say, something new and exciting? I mean i wouldnt mind seing Halo come to PS3(i know its not going to happen) but id much rather have a new game. After all if i really want halo i could just buy a 360. And if there is any 360 owners out there that wants MGS4 then you should buy a PS3. I assume you have a HD-TV, so you are going to want a blu-ray player anyway. I guess the most stupid thing to do from a gamers standpoint would be to buy a 360 and then buy a standalone blu ray player. PS3 is the highest performing blu-ray player on the market(probably because of the cell, which ironically makes it the most powerfull game system aswell) and its not one of the most expensive. No more crying because you miss out on visually mind-blowing games like Killzone2. No more denying that upscaled dvds just wont cut it. No more living in fear that your favourite game is going to get scratched and destroyed. No more acting as if RROD dont bother you because you get a new one(RROD? Console? both?) in 2 weeks. The answer to all your problems is closer then you think. Get a PS3, it will set you Free! (Yes it actually rhymes)
I don't think this is MGS4 on the 360. A surprise is better suited to that kind of announcement. I also don't think it has anything to do with the 360, green is the colour of the codec, and the circle thing is a universal power indicator. I think it's either remakes, or an Ac!d game.
Ninty is getting some love
Even if its for the 360 there is nothing you can do about it. So everyone handle the possibility this gen is significantly different than any previous generation of gaming. There may only be PC gaming in the future at this rate or one platform hopefully next gen. Whatever they do it's there choice as developers. Think about it the WII is #1 this gen no one could have really predicted its success and is very underpowered graphically to the other consoles so I'd just let the chips fall where they may.
(IF)<<<< it comes to the 360 ima hear/ see alot of complaining. I mean that would be another ps3 exclusive coming our way....again. (IF)
I almost wish that they could release MGS4 on the 360 couse this is getting annoying.
It's just as bad as the Halo and Gears going PS3 rumors. Rumors like this get tight wads like Nasim's panties in a bunch, so it's kinda comical. Most people ether know better or just don't care, some care to much and it's funny as hell. I love provoking fans on N4G, there is never a shortage of dumbasses that fall for it.
Some would call it fair since Gears of War 2 is coming to the PS3. On the Unreal Network internal developer forum there is a sticky that says "Do not ask for copies of Gears of War 2 on the PS3. We are only sending out copies of games that have already shipped to retail."
don`t worry mate , it`s not on xbox . the message color is green , and the xbox has red color almost all the time ;;)
Gears coming to POS3, you wish.
Morganfell, Gears 1 and 2 are both published by MS. The only way you'll see those two games on PS3 is if Sony pays a crapload of money. There's always a possibility of future Gears games on the PS brand, which wouldn't surprise me at some point, but you'd have to think that MS would be willing to pay a lot, and fight very hard to keep it exclusive. On to the topic at hand. It's fair to say that at this point, since GTA and Resident Evil have seen the light and gone to the 360 as well, that MGS is the Halo of PlayStation. How AWESOME would it be if future installments were on Microsoft systems as well? I would love it.
This interview below should clear up questions about Gears on PS3. It's right at the start of the interview.
Captainj, Epic has already left one folder in the open by accident on their server. In it were bug reports of Gears 2 on the PS3 dealing with how they had solved issues by changing the lighting coding. Which only makes sense as the PS3 can use the Cell to handle vertex lighting. There is also discussion of how they are doing vertex coloring. Sorry but the fact is they are not doing all of this work and sinking manpower into Q&A for nothing.
maybe acid for wii ?
no comment, that sounds good, means no denial :D
No comment on what the teaser is, not what people are wildly speculating.
These two things are now completely inseparable. As all the speculation is the followup of the teaser.
lol. So they should deny it? they just put out a teaser, they want people to be speculating. Why on earth would they deny anything until they confirm what it is?
I really don't think so...either it's a completely new MGS going multiplat (very, very unlikely) or a MG Ac!d game for DSi, PSP, Wii or any other console.
Metel Gear Solid 2 was multiplat 5yrs ago on the Xbox. Metal Gear has never been a true exclusive, it didn't start out on the Playstation you know. If MS, Nintendo, or Sony don't own the exclusive rights to the franchise, then saying it will never go anywhere is nieve. Shall I point out Final Fantasy, Star Ocean, Tekken, Residevt Evil, Bioshock or Grand Theft Auto?
Shane, I would guess that it is a Wii game that is also an Xbox Live Arcade game. It is only going to make 360 owners buy a PS3 so they can get a real next gen Metal Gear game.
No what I ment Jason 3sh!tty is not that Konami/Kojima is bound to Sony. What I ment was that I don't know if they'll announce a new MG game for xbox and/or PS3 this soon. And I'm a die hard MGS fan, I know where the game started thank you very much.
it started in the arcade.... and i wouldn't be suprised if it went multiplat. konami has gotta eat too ya know! more platforms= more money.
MGS4 for 360 isn't very probable. Can't think of anything else...
looking at that logo.. i would just straight think of 360.. but hey we cant say but if u say DS do u really think they would put up such a mind-buggling riddle for the DS crowd.. i dont think so... so it brings me bk to 360 but well i cant say...
My thoughts are that it is nothing more than MG Ac!d for iPhone or even DSi. In green to throw off the internet and generate buzz.
What the hell? They put a teaser on the site then they call it 'speculation'? Surely it's not speculating if it's on their own site, we're asking what it is!
They put up th!s bullsh!t on their site and then compla!n that people are spread!ng rumors.
It's green because the codecs are ALWAYS green. The only game where it wasn't green was the futuristic DS. Not to mention the original metal gear games had the exact same looking codecs. Xbox didn't invent green ok.
I agree, aside from speculating from what this next metal gear game is, I thought Kojima is done with the Metal Gear series and wants to move to new titles. I think it's a portable title, they already have MGS on Verizon phones. I say DSi or PSP are the two most likely possible. OR it could be one of those substance/subsistence/existenc e? version for MGS4 on PS3.
Nah. They said Metal Gear was still going to go on, but Snake was finished. Or something like that. Agree with both of you though. Bubbles :)
looks like Acid for iPhone or DSi.. MGS4 for xbox 360, not bloody likely
I think your right.
rumours about MGS4 coming to xbox 360 are ridiculous. Hideo him self said that MGS4 never come to xbox 360. it remains exclusive to PS3. he even said that he is tired of all these rumours.
He may be tired of the rumours but doing things like this doesn't really stop it does it? It encourages it.
The story is crap and there are too many cut scenes. Learn from Valve and Bioshock on how to tell ingame stories... I'll take MGS4 as long as it gets a 'Director's cut' and we lose most of the unnecessary and overlong cut scenes. Cut scenes are OLD GEN! NOTHING revolutonary has come out of japan since SHENMUE!
just like your face nothing evolutionary, you still look like a monkey..
shut up, we all know you never played this game
learn from bioshock? are you joking? the most linear boring piece of monkey poo game ever, all those people in bunny rabbit masks under the water shreiking like a gay parade, kill the cartoon girl or save her? darling it's so last year and so overhyped. If mgs4 goes to the 360 then good luck enjoy it, it's just a game sweetheart, a Game. No need to go and pull hideo kojima from his little japanese micro hotel tube and upset his instant noodles all over his collection of schoolgirls undies darling, just relax. If the japanese want to do a little arty teasy oriental advert, let them, it probably cost millions and employed lots of people just to make thier little green advert statement, all over a game about a man in rubber trousers who pushes his very graphically defined buttocks into the air like he is desperate for some gluteal crease action. darling!
And there we have it Speculation OVER.
if you look the power symbol has an exclamation mark in it as well, and looking at my 360, PS3 and monitor its just a straight line.. my bets on an ac!d version for the iphone of dsi...
I'm thinking this is a handheld title or an another Acid game. If it were a console game I'm sure Konami along with Kojima would unveil it much bigger then this.
Metal Gear Solid games have graced many platforms. Metal Gear 1, NES & some other system, Metal Gear 2, Nes Metal Gear Solid, Originally planned for N64 then moved to Playstation, Metal Gear Solid 2, PS2 Xbox, Metal Gear Solid Twin Snakes, Gamecube, Metal Gear Solid 3, PS2 Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3, and all the PSP versions too. It's true that the main franchise has stayed close to the Playstation since Metal Gear Solid, but basically it wouldn't surprise me to see MGS4 on any system. I would love a remake of MGS1 2 & 3 maybe even remakes of original Metal Gear 1 & 2. Or something new, I'm easy! Just please don't make me buy a new system to play it as I'm poor, but would gladly give up food for a month to buy a 360 to play a new version of MGS
I remember a while back, Kojima said in an interview he doesn't want to do remakes. Well, if anything it could be that MGS4 Existence version.
Metal Gear 1 was originally on the MSX, and later on ported to the Nes. Konami in the far past worked with Microsoft before, Konami became big by developing games for the MSX.
Kojima himself might not want to produce a remake, but it might get outsourced like Metal Gear Solid Twin Snakes. which was a really good port apart from the new music and matrix style slow mo cut scenes! MSX was the system I couldn't remember so just put it down as 'other system' Anyway what we can probably all presume is unless this just is MGS4 for 360 (which would be a disappointment for me, as it's nothing new) it's going to be a long long way away.
Yes, but bar phone games (which Kojima Productions don't work on), they haven't been on a non-PlayStation platform since the formation of Kojima Productions which was formed partly BECAUSE MGS2 was ported to XBox and Kojima never wanted to have his games ruined by shoddy porting again.
MGS belongs on Playstation!
Konami is having a lot of fun jerking off in front of everyone. Just tell us what it is - and I don't want to hear, "Metal Gear Solid 1 to Xbox Live Arcade!"
agreed. I wouldn't be surprised if this amounts to nothing... just konami having some fun. like previously said the next proper Metal Gear game is probably a long way off. 2 years or so. so this could just turn out to be MGS1 released via xbox live or PSN more likely (i didn't think PS games made it to Xbox Live)
true, and we all know MS is the only one that can make Konami a giant again, just like in the msx days, when konami developed a Sload of games for the msx. Speaking of which, how awesome would it be if konami would (re)make a new Knightmare (Maze of galious) for the 360 and ps3.
o well will find out soon enough
I just bought an iPod touch. DS would be fine, though.
remember, this is for american media to give mgs4 game of the year. Konami is just making sure the rumors keep flying around so that mgs4 doesnt get the shaft of bias. remember, every ps3 exclusive game has journalist beg & plead & constantly ask if they are going to port to the xbox360. Its a smart move to pull on thier strings, get the kudos printed & maintain exclusitivy. Even though the sequels will be rated lower & slammed Konami & sony will have gained more gamers by then. Game of the year shows is what made me buy oblivian. if I hadnt watched i wouldnt know yet I just happened to discover drakes uncharted all by myself because the media & shows rarely even spoke of this game. Believe it or not, journalist & american media hurt sales of games. If they want a game to fail, its entirly possible. All you have to do is dedicate a week of bad press to overcome any advertising sony may do. thats it. Ive had many conversations with xbox360 fans & it shows how mislead they have been as they quote the b.s. lies that arent true about anything ps3 related. Its ignorance & konami is playing that card with these multiplatform rumors.
.......Before throwing 'new' stuff at us, answer the obvious: IS THERE TRUTH TO THE RUMOR ABOUT THE DEC. MGS4 GAME-CONTENT RELEASE/DOWNLOAD/UNLOCK EXTRA? Huh,...HUH?
I really hope that secret ending will happen on Dec 12. It would be the best thing ever even if it shows Snake's death.
That MGS4 was teased as an FPS too. This is nothing all that groundbreaking if you ask me and it's like to be an Acid game (Especially since acid is spelled with a !).
