All this coming from lol

Konami makes their biggest announcement of 2008 (that's right, 2008!) not to the media or its shareholders, but first???

If I owned stock in Konami and found out they revealed news of such impact to some Xbox site, I would not be happy at all...

This is a sad attempt from an Xbox fanboy site to get hits. Unfortunately, it worked, as this news has already reach 1300+ degrees.

If MGS4 comes to the 360 as well then the gaming industry as WE know it will fall. The gaming industry will fall to lower standards. SONY HAS to do great in order for the gaming industry to survive. So MGS4 will not come to the 360

Hits don't mean crap to this site. Please at least research before you post stupidity.

ravinash4572d ago

is that while this site goes on about what this rep said, the only document they can publish is the letter from MS saying no comment.
The one comment they keep saying is that it is coming to Xbox...well keep saying it does not make it so.

Not to lie.

Consider the fact that Xbox Family broke the story about motion-sensing controls for the Xbox 360. Two days later Team Xbox (Owned by IGN) said it was true and they'd have the full story this week. But no, yea, you stick only to Gamespot and IGN.

Even after Hideo Kojima, Ryan Peyton, and Peter Moore all saying MGS4 is definately not coming to the 360 (Ryan Peyton even saying "You're going to have to buy a PS3 to play MGS4), you guys still believe that its coming to the 360? Why would Konami or Kojima Productions annouce something this huge to a small xbox fanboy site?

Almost every one of these rumors stemed off of someone's "insider", and it always ends up being false. So since there has been many "OMGZ!! MGS4 is coming to the 360! Trust me, I have an insider!!" rumors, I guarantee you this is fanboy bull****.

The Xbox 360 and the PS3 both have their exclusives that won't come to other consoles, get over it, and I don't need an "insider" for you to believe that.

MGS4 coming to 360 is not only possible, but it's probable. So is FF. Not that I really care, I'm not a fan of either.

Quote from Hideo Kojima:
""The PS3 is like the theatre, it's a little bit high-priced but it has to be high quality as well," he explained. "The 360 is a DVD, it still needs to be high quality but you need more variations, while the Wii is almost like a TV channel, because every game you have is with your family".

[L]ike I said, MGS4 is aimed for the movie theatre, it's aimed for the PS3, so the game's scenario and graphics need this theatre-type hardware," Kojima responded. "It's when a producer has a game that can work on the 'DVD level' that a game will go multiplatform."

Quote from Ryan Peyton:
"We're telling our fans that if you want to play 'Metal Gear Solid 4', you have to buy a PS3.

The PlayStation brand has always been good to us, and we're pretty bullish on the PS3." you guys believe a xbox fanboy website over the people who are making the game? God, some people are blind and ignorant.

Would MGS4 sell more if they released on the 360? Definately yes. But the sad facts are there, both the creater and producer both keep saying they are PS3 exclusive. So will it release on any other console other than the PS3? No.

So like Ryan Peyton, the producer of Metal Gear Solid 4 says, buy a PS3 if you want to play Metal Gear Solid 4.

Hatchetforce4573d ago

Not only the above reasons, but also the Metal Gear Solid movie is being made by who? That's right, Sony Pictures.

Hey look, a video game movie that is actually being made rather than talked and talked about and then dumped into the wasteland.

wow some people are acting like babies over this. its likely to be ported because it makes business sense. you all seem to disagree because it doesnt make fan-boy sense.

n4gTurnsU_WickedGay4572d ago

you would be right, except that it has been stated by several ppl that Konami is contractually obligated to keep MGS4 a ps3 exclusive.
