Default Metal Gear 4 on the 360? (Rumour)

Metal Gear 4' Coming to Xbox 360?

By: Douglass C. Perry

For: IGN

With Microsoft's one-year-old console gaining a steady install base in North America and Europe, Konami executives have switched their positions on an outright Metal Gear Solid 4-PlayStation 3 exclusive, telling Hideo Kojima to bring the game to Xbox 360, says Electronic Gaming Monthly in its December issue.

One year ago Konami's Hideo Kojima was quoted as saying that 'Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots' was technically possible on Xbox 360. Now it's not only technically possible, it's perhaps financially feasible as well. EGM's rumor mill produced the short article and it's worth noting that no sources were supplied, no quotes were given, and no reasoning was provided behind the alleged move. It's pure rumor, one that Konami executives have refused to comment on or entertain in public since the game's announcement on PlayStation 3. When contacted today, Konami officials said "These are just rumors."

Still, the notion that MGS4 could come to Xbox 360 makes a little more sense today than it did four months ago. Back then, we couldn't see the state of disarray that Sony was in. Now, with Sony's rough launch, limited unit numbers and high price tag, perhaps Konami executives are seeing how fiscally prudent an Xbox 360 version would be. That doesn't mean it is happening. It's still just a rumor; but one worth mulling over.

The cons of such an argument are many. Sony and Konami are long-time partners. 'Metal Gear Solid 3' never came to Xbox, as MGS2 sold unimpressive numbers. But MGS4 is a technical showcase and a guaranteed system-mover for Sony. The series has been one of Sony's biggest weapons since MGS on PlayStation and even more so with MGS2 on PS2. Pundits and industry analysts say that Sony is working with Konami with both technical and financial means to keep the exclusive secure.

But so what? Contracts have limits. 'Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas' came to Xbox, and GTA4 is coming day and date to Xbox 360 with the PS3 version. Other Japanese publishers are considering the weight of Xbox 360 and are shifting their own once-Sony exclusives to Xbox 360, too. The most likely scenario, if this rumor has any legs to it, is that Konami has signed a contract with Sony restricting its port to another system for some time; as soon as the contract is up, MGS 4 will ship on Xbox 360. Will that be three, six or 12 months? If MGS4 is due for fall release on PS3 (no official date has been released), then count on a minimum of six months. In other words, if the rumor proves true, count on a 2008 release.

If this is true then Microsoft can officially consider me as a future buyer.

This was the only thing holding me back about buying an X-Box 360 but if it is true then I am 100% getting a 360

Sorry Sony marks, but it looks like you get screwed again. If MGS 4 comes out on the 360, I'll be extremely happy.

Yeah, with this and Grand Theft Auto on the 360, I see very little reason to get a PS3.

Shit, that's what happens when you get too full of yourself and overprice your products. That $600 pricetag is turning me away from Sony.

The Wii's price is seriously attractive, and that's the only reason why I'm even thinking of buying one, as long as they have all the solid titles. I might just buy Microsoft's "retard pack" for $300, atleast I'll have a next generation system at a relatively cheap price.

That game is one of the few reasons why I want to get a PS3, looks like I may have to get a 360 if it actually does come out on there.

Other than that game the only other reason I'd buy a PS3 would be for Resident Evil 5 and the new GTA, though I think one of those is gonna be for the 360 too anyways.

GTA is confirmed for simultaneous release on the 360 and PS3. I haven't heard if RE5 is an exclusive...but if it is I doubt it will be for more then a year or so.

But what's not confirmed yet is if PS3 will have the downloadable content like the Xbox will (for GTA)

That's the waiting factor here before I make my choice for a system

Also the controller, I'd feel really weird not hitting R1 to shoot someone in GTA

The 360 is getting RE 5. Just checked Gamespot. No set date yet, but who knows? It could ship the same day as the PS3 version.

Xbox 360 is where it's at this generation folks.

Last generation, Sony had the installed userbase, it had a lot of the exclusives people wanted, and it was out first so got to the sweet spot as far as pricing goes each time.

This generation, Microsoft has the installed userbase, it's getting a lot of great titles that everyone wants, it came out forst and therefore will be able to get to the sweet pricing point(s) first.

Is the Metal Gear Franchise even any good? I've never gotten into any of those games and since they have a shitload of them for PS2, I figure I may as well pick one or two up if they're any good.

You know...while I wait to make my decision and all...

The original was great. One of the great PS1 games. The second was shorter than the first and had you change characters midway through the game. Third was pretty indepth on using camo and hunting for food.
