Rumor:Microsoft's "Metal Gear" for the 360

It seems absolutely impossible to notice that Microsoft is unfazed by Metal Gear Solid 4, the titan of all games released during the year on the PS3. Splinter Cell: Conviction might not be powerful enough to scratch our beloved Solid Snake, so Microsoft has decided to bring something as brilliant as the game on the 360.Word has it that the company is in collaboration with a highly talented studio that can give their 360 something way better than Snake.

The story is too old to be commented.

Maybe this is a first glance of what MS has in store for ´08.

godofthunder104039d ago (Edited 4039d ago )

i belive this story because just like the ps3 it was said that the 360 isn't even using all of its power yet.
as for people saying that Hideo Kojima is the greatest game developer in the world and that no one can make a game like he does is just bias,hell mgs4 is about the only big game that he every made and i've seen games that's a lot better then mgs4.i don't care if they are a game developer,movie director or a tv producer they will always have some one better then they are because they have movies that's directed by a nobody and the movie was better then some of the movies that the greates movie directors evey made.that's the way it always been and it will never mater how good some one is they will have some one that's better then they are no mater what they do and that's a fact.
hell PStriple703 is saying that he's not suprised because microsoft is never orginal because they are making a game like mgs4,well sony isn't either because mgs4 didn't start on the ps systems,they started on the nintendo system,so by the way it looks he though that mgs started on the ps systems,well i guess that he fells like an ass to find out that it didn't and his post just made sony look bad to saying that microsoft isn't original because they are making a game like mgs4 because it's on the ps3 but sony didn't make mgs either like i said, it was a nintendo game so by his on words sony isn't original either because they didn't make metal gear either.

How does it feel to have to write a novel just for a post, oh wait you only have 1 bubble that why....lmao grow up kid

playinitcool4039d ago

by the time i finished reading your comment i entirely forgot what this article was about >.<

gEnKiE4039d ago

ya, ok....thats like saying Killzone is going to be isn't going to happen.

Hatchetforce4039d ago

Remember when Black was shown behind closed doors and they talked about how it would be the end all, be all of first person shooters? They called it gun porn. Look how the finished product turned out. When people start hyping something unproven from day one then be prepared to hit bottom.

MGS4 has a history. A wonderful, thrilling, adventurous history with game mechanics and a system that has been refined over numerous games. This article is clutching at straws. Creating a title to kill or challenge another game isn't going to end well.

moses4039d ago

Black was a really good game, and yes, at that time It blew everyone other fps out of the water.

Hatchetforce4039d ago

No, it only blew the people getting previews behind closed doors out of the water.

Percentages ranging from the 60s to the 80s. That isn't blowing people out of the water. It was railed against so thoroughly when released developer Alex Ward went on a tirade mocking gamers and telling people they didn't know what good gaming was. He was laughed at for his ridiculous antics. People didn't jump up and down over the game and he was angry. No Black didn't outclass all other shooters at that time. Interesting but minimal story, no Multiplayer, too many other issues.

actas1234039d ago

Woo, Woo Woo,
wait a minute, Black was way underscored. That game is better than Halo one and two combined. and gamehatespot gave them a 7.4 (IGN score was 8.8). Black in my opinion is the best first person shooter on any last gen console. In my book it compares to God of War in game play and graphics.. Please don't talk down about it if you have not played it.. I thought Black was even better than MGS2..

lewdvig4039d ago

Oh my GOD! MS is going to come out with a game for the 360!!!!


Some the crap that gets posted here boggles the mind.

Genki4039d ago

take a look at Two Worlds as another example. The same folks that were saying it was supposed to dwarf Oblivion ended up disliking the game and tearing it to shreds.

That's the state of our tabloid gaming press these days. Hype generates hits, and we all love to see stuff go down in flames...

Timesplitter144039d ago

Yeah and maybe it's an overhyped rumor on an overhyped tech demo

The Killer4039d ago

sorry but u r forgetting something!
MGS franchise doesnt belong to sony or nintendo! it belongs to konami and the series so the day light in the sony consoles not nintendo! just to correct ur info!

Texas GMR4039d ago

Come on people. "According to sources.." This is worst than a forum post. Let's wait for evidence or news fact, not BS.

mikeslemonade4039d ago

No this is just hype. PGR4 used 95% of the 360's power. Halo 3 was only 640p. This game in 08 will not look better than PS3 games. It will look better than anything before Uncharted. But Killzone 2, FFXIII, and MGS4 won't be touched. If the happens to look better it will be because game is on rails or the game is going to be slow and small like Gears.

With 2008 just a few days away, I think it's about time for Microsoft to finally reveal their cards. Not like sony when they were already jumping ship in mid 2007 by revealing their full 2008 lineup.

An MS machine manufactured by Sony.

"I wonder by how many millions this new IP will outsell MGS4"

I thought you said MGS4 is coming out on your beloved Xbox 360?

"While MGS4 is eventually coming to Xbox 360 because Konami knows its the only way they will make any money"


"I wonder by how many millions this new IP will outsell MGS4"

Wow it doesn't surprise me someone as blind as you has put so much faith into a rumor. No surprises here. And on top of that you expect a new IP which does'nt even exist to outsell millions more then MGS4 (which would be on 2 systems according to you).

The Brave 14039d ago

Yo knight,who said sony announced their full 2008 line up idiot.

MikeGdaGod4039d ago

and so is MGS4 for the 360................

IntelligentAj4039d ago

Do you guys have any proof of what you're saying or do you just speak without thought? Where have you all seen anything that says MGS4 is coming to the 360? And how is it that you bash "sonykids" when they say how good a new ip will sell but then you do the same? Damn kids...use some reason.

sonarus4039d ago (Edited 4039d ago )

nothing new here. Just typical mgs4 to 360 rumors. If mgs4 isnt done by kojima i can pretty much guarantee its gonna flop. Maybe not in sales cus its mgs and i knw xbots are desperate to just get their hands on it but in overall quality. MGS4 was never about graphics it was about gameplay and i doubt they can match it. I can see they are already considering turning it into an fps...typical useless msoft thinking.

Anyway i think its fake the whole rumor just sounds fake "Word has it that the company is in collaboration with a highly talented studio that can give their 360 something way better than Snake." All that apparently from a tech demo... i think msoft has a better chance of getting an mgs4 port on the 360 than a new mgs4 ip. Then it apparently achieves visuals previously unseen by consoles and its gonna be in the mgs universe lol. Common. If it does happens it really depends on how they play it. MGS4 should be out by summer and they should just be startng dev on this new game that means 2009 earliest in other words far too late for it to impact mgs4 sales. And true mgs fans probably won't touch fps mgs's especially ones not made by kojuma. At times like this it kinda makes me glad i havnt sold my 360 yet. Its best msoft shows and proves cus i shall be selling it soon

JasonPC360PS3Wii4039d ago (Edited 4039d ago )

then there are dreamers. The PS3rd is filled with the losers and dreamers. Here Droids is your prize, enjoy :D

Meh, I doubt this'd match MGS4. Few movie directors, let alone hack videogame directors, have the artistic and cinematic vision of Hideo Kojima. That's something you can't replicate just buy spending more moolah.

Genuine4039d ago

I have to disagree. I find the MGS games to have overly clumsy gameplay, and stories that are borderline garbage. I think that unless Konami has done something about the fixed camera, targeting, and overall clumsy hand to hand combat, I believe alot of people will be let down. The stories imo are just plain weird and a little too 4th grade level for me. Another thing that needs work is the localisation. Every MGS game that I have played, I couldn't help but think, this is an obvious attempt of a Japanese dev trying to make a Western- Japanese game.

socsca4039d ago

Clumsy gameplay? No, not really, I like the MGS gameplay, its great. Garbage stories? Yes absolutely, about as predictable and boring as they come (so far!! MGS4 looks to have a more interesting story with the mercenaries stuff). I guess those who appreciate Days of our lifes-type stories (Ohhh, He's your evil twin out to destroy you. No Wait! Clone! ) might find it interesting, but for the rest its just annoying melodramatic stuff that keeps you from murdering dudes snake-style.

giovonni4039d ago

I would have to agree with you on a few things, but kind of disagree with you on some of the control aspects of the game. The controls were B+ which is great for a game like Metal Gear the hand to hand combat was always lacking in Metal gear, which I think was caused by dev's to give it a more of a stealth feel.
Now I do agree that the story is a bit fourth grade G.I. Joe-ish. Which kill's it for me. Plus, they recycle a lot of characters that need not be mentioned any more. This is why I've always enjoyed Splinter Cells stories. It draws me in very easy because the missions that sam are placed on are much easier to comprehend, with out leaving you to wonder, " What the hell Just Happpend?!"
Don't get me wrong I like Metal Gear, and to find a game of it's caliber with out being a complete rip off is hard, but can be done. The question is, will it be accepted?

The_Engineer4039d ago

the thought of four guys fighting a legion of underground rats with guns is the epitome of storytelling.....*rolls eyes* xbots are a plague on intelligent society.

peksi4039d ago (Edited 4039d ago )

Stop hyping, we want gaming footage!

Genuine4039d ago (Edited 4039d ago )

I think that the MGS were decent titles when compared to most ps2 games. I believe that when it hits the next-gen though alot of it's gameplay will seem dated, that is unless some of the issues I posted are addressed. From what I've seen though everything looks the same. The story looks to be as convaluted as ever, and too strangely homo-erotic and perverted for most young people. I haven't heard much about the localisation, but imo this is what will decide alot of opinions on the game. Lips not moving in sync and mediocre voice acting matter to some people.

giovonni4039d ago

I totally understand, that's why after the 2nd one I stopped playing. It does need a over haul. something new. I agree.

playinitcool4039d ago (Edited 4039d ago )


"I think that the MGS were decent titles when compared to most ps2 games"

i think thats a pretty bold statement to make, seen as that you've never played MGS4. I mean thats like sayin GOW was only good whilst compared to ps2 games, and the 3rd wont live up to next gen "standard" :S

Black Rose4039d ago

WOW if you think there will be a better game with better story and better characters from a different developer then you all my friends have been Brain Washed lol

Fragking284039d ago

question so r u saying that there is noone that will be able to create a universe to surpass the mgs saga then u my frien r brain washed. Im an extreme metal gear fan but to say that that is pretty much it for creativity and imagination in this business is absurd.

Black Rose4039d ago

there is games already trying to be MGS yet fail really bad and there will be more in the future because that is the effect of competition. the need to be a master piece as MGS is, has been around for quite some time now.

Kojima is a very talented video game developer and I only wish he grabbed a pen and starts writing movies lol

Silenced is Golden!

Fragking284039d ago

From what ive read and heard about games microsoft is keeping under wraps until 08 it looks like next year is going to be very intersting for gamers.
