Kazumi Kitaue, the head of Konami's North American and European operations, told Reuters today that Konami may need to expand the target hardware for its blockbuster action game Metal Gear Solid, which has so far been developed for Sony's PlayStation machines, to other consoles in the future to recoup development costs.
"Since Metal Gear Solid was born for the PlayStation, we would like to keep it a PlayStation game. But we might have to take some steps," Kitaue said.
Konami plans to launch Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots for the PS3 in the current business year to March 2008.
It would only make sense that MGS4 will also come to 360. Publishers want to maximize their profits. PS3 is not selling well compared to the other consoles and Konami knows this.
The system with the largest install base always gets the games. This happened with PS2 last generation. It will be no different with 360 this generation. with the 360 install base at almost 12 mil Konami would be crazy to pass up the green.
Disagree all day long and take all my bubbles. That is your only defense Sony boys. To hide behind the feedback and disagree buttons. To attack someone personally bc you know it is true.
Here is an article that actually says "MGS4" in it Desperado since I know you always look for your loophole.
I strongly believe Metal Gear will go multiplatform today at E3 some how.If not then Tekken might be the one to go
360 hasnt even shipped 12 million 1st of all install base is more like 10 and with the recent price cut if sony can some regenerate public interest in their product i have no doubt they will at least reach 3-5 million units in u.s. this yr alone unless msoft counters with a price drop. It will definetly be intersting to see sales reports for this week since i have been hearing a lot of ps3 sold out in stores stories. Regardless mgs4 might hit the 360 a yr after it hits the ps3 which by then i will be singing been there done that.
You know this thing keeps coming up, I personally am not gagging for MGS4 on the 360 but IF it comes to the 360 what will I need my PS3 for? Only DBZ games and FF games and perhaps the odd 1 or 2 exclusives as well and 1st party games.
Konami need to advise at E3 what their plans are, if they dont say anything about a 360 version at E3 then its either a no no or could be a last min thing 2 months before the game comes out or something.
Either way I personally want a developer out there to finally exploit the PS3's so-called 'untapped power' come on let me see why I parted with over 400 notes!
This is complete BS.
This games is not coming out until march 2008.
By then the PS3 could be the leader.
