MGS4 on the Xbox 360? [Updated]

GamersReports.com has posted this article about how the cover of December’s issue of EGM clearly says “Metal Gear Solid 4 on Xbox 360?”. Could this be the final blow to the major exclusives PS3 has over the Xbox? See the cover after the jump.

It’s a big mystery, since obviously someone could’ve created this work of art in their spare time. It still brings excitement to what will probably be a slow news weekend.


[Update: The EGM cover is confirmed to be real, stay tuned to Xboxic.com for more updates concerning the actual contents of the magazine (Due to be out next week.)]

[Update 2: Che Chou, ex-1UP staffer and developer at Microsoft’s Forza 2 team, has this to say about the whole deal:

It’s simply a rumor that Konami higher-ups are pressuring Kojima Productions to consider making MGS4 a multiplatform game because production costs on the game are unsurprisingly high and only getting higher. With PS3 install base numbers not looking all that rosy due to console cost and manufacturing problems, Konami is scared they can’t recoup their investment on only 1 platform alone.

It’s also a nice way to maybe blackmail Sony into giving Konami an incentive to keeping the game a PS3 exclusive, imo.

Whatever the case, I highly doubt it’s going to happen so quit building yourself a disappointing kiloton bomb.

Sounds reasonable to me.]


Yes, before we go on, we know that this post is a bit thin in the facts department, but it is Friday night, we figure hey, have some fun, the week is done. If you look closely at the cover of the latest EGM (image at link), you will clearly see that it says “Metal Gear Solid 4 On Xbox 360?” on the cover. What this means, we do not know. We bring it to you anyway to commence the weekend.

I can already hear the collective groan and moan from the Sony fans who have one less argument over the Xbox 360.

EGM December

This could be huge news if it’s true. It’d be like Xbox losing Halo 3 to the PS3. While Metal Gear Solid probably isn’t the PlayStation’s biggest franchise, it’s certainly on the top 5.

Wow that is all i can say if this is true depending on their launch i might feel sorry for them.

woot first!

good thing its not true…

That was something that Kojima said was possible, but not gonna’ happen. That was said last year around the release of the 360.

However, I would be utterly delighted if they really did come through making it.

Comment by Raptor on 2006-10-28 04:38:14 | Reply

He said it was TECHNICALLY possible as in the 360 could play the game, but that he didn’t want to do it, and since he owns the studio what he says pretty much goes.

That cover is confirmed to be the real deal so I’m really curious was EGM has to back this rumor up as it’s highly unlikely.

IF this is true…
then I can only pray that they will bring 3 with, because I have been dying to play it.

Get a PS2, it’s cheap, it has a lot of cheap games (platinum range and such) and it’ll be worth it. I bought one last month and now I own 12 PS2 titles and I’ve spent more than enough time with it to warrant the purchase. Besides, if you buy it now you’re just in time for MGS3: Subsistence. :)

Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence is the game of the year press average - 9.6

Gears of War press average - 9.5

My PS2 only had about 12 games in its whole lifespan since I got it 2001. I was studying accountancy from 2001 - 2005 virtually full time. Now Ive completed it and FINALLY got time to play games, the thing’s out of date and the 360 caught my eye and I have about 15 games already.

Oh im bored and blabbering on - sorry MGS is an excellent game and I hope it does make it to the 360

Don’t like it. Should stay where it belongs to. I don’t need passive computergames. If i like to get a story i read a book.

Sorry to break all your hopes but Hideo has repeatedly said he is NOT going to do any MGS titles on the 360 he has even publicly denounced the 360 in comparison to the ps3. Pretty much calling the 360 a cheap date (pizza and a movie) to an expensive night out (multi-course meal). I think that really says it all.

Comment by Raptor on 2006-10-28 04:46:48 | Reply

Any title on 360 for that matter really, not just MGS.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! ;-; Lies! And freaking slander! Sony will never lose MGS to the Xbox. =<>

What the hell? If you are going to make a point make it don’t just spout of idiocy in the name of idiocy and fanboyism. But you are right Sony never will because Hideo just doesn’t like Microsoft’s System. The only next possible system would be the Wii but he has also said the system is for kids (seriously, thats what he said.) He is working on a title for the DS however, a stock market simulator.

Comment by Chris on 2006-10-28 05:29:19 | Reply

Dont know where you saw kojima dissing the 360, but when i read the article he said it would be capable of running the MGS properly he didnt see it happening in the near future. But then again assassin’s creed said no no no no no … and sony fanboys said wooohoooo… until it all fell flat on their faces, i remember with the last mgs port came to the xbox1 .. PS fans shit themselves LOL

If the ps3 looses mgs, their left with FFXIII as their blockbuster… and we all know that square and microsoft are in talks over that as well….

Comment by p on 2006-10-28 05:58:10 | Reply

the poster above is right, he did compare the 360 to a cheap meal out and the ps3 as fine dining. he mentioned that if he were to do a game on the 360, it wouldn’t be mgs4. rather, he would prefer to create an original game/series for them if anything at all

Psssst. Metal Gear Solid was on the XBox (MGS2 with all the extra stuff). So MGS4 wouldn’t be a SHOCKING exclusive.

Comment by Jules on 2006-12-30 22:30:26 | Reply

Psssst. that was Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance, it was on PS2 as well, and in case in didn’t know the Xbox version had slowdowns even in the cut scenes, it was worst than the PS2 version, and have you seen a MGS3 on any other sys besides PS2? NO!.

+

MGS2:Substance only got out for the Xbox cuz MS paid and Konami put pressure on Koj, but now its a all diferent story mate, Kojima owns its studio the Kojima Productions, so if he says “No MGS4 on X360″ it will be a cold day in hell before you see MGS4 on X360…

Comment by Aift on 2006-10-28 06:59:42 | Reply

Microsoft will not lose HALO 3, because it’s published by Microsoft Game Studios and Bungie is owned by Microsoft. Kojima Production is owned by Hideo Kojima, which means there is a possibility of a multi-platform.

MGS2 was on the XBOX.

I understand you guys like Xbox, but I wouldn’t wish anything bad against Sony or Nintendo they have much more scruples than Microsoft.

Don’t you remember Microsoft VS. United States case no. 98-1232? Where the Government deemed Microsoft to be exerting a monopolistic practice by lying(withholding important technical info), bullying(forcing small companies out of business).

Have they ever produced a single original piece of code? even IE7 shows evidence of Mozilla rape.

Microsoft have even said the main reason they have made the Xbox is because they knew that Sony wanted to gear their game consoles towards becoming a home entertainment system, and Microsoft wanted to make computers with their OS (Microsoft Media Center) the defacto home entertainment system.
Microsoft will continue to make the money losing Xbox just for the sake of having a game console out there that could gradually monopolize the home entertainment system.

I don’t know about you, I want a game console made by a company for the sake of making games not for some selfish un-capitalistic motivation.

Sony has what? Don’t forget Sony push the RIAA to sue children for downloading music. Oh why doesn’t Sony Music just lower the cost of music??? GREED. I want Sony to have to work, so we can get the Next, Next Gen Consoles sooner. Who wants to wait for 7 years? I also want cheeper consoles, after all the games are what run the systems and with out games the systems are trash.

“I don’t play games for political reasons, thanks. I didn’t buy the 360 for any other reason than it had the best online system, the best games, etc.”

Falcon, I understand what you are saying the only reason I say this is because there are some on this board that actually ave malicious feelings towards Sony, why? I don’t know and I don’t understand. Did sony every exert unfair business practice?? I think we need healthy competition in our capitalistic country.

“Wait… Sony has more scruples than Microsoft? LOL Ask Lik-Sang about Sony’s scruples.”

Falcon, think about what you are saying?? Lik-Sang is breaking the law by the London Courts, they are buying up a good portion of already limited supply from Japan potentially shafting many of the pre-order customers.
Price gouging the PS3, selling it in the US for $700-$800, why Sony prohibits the PS3 for selling above $499, $599 in the US. This company is definitely doing some shady dealings.

In comparison to what Microsoft has done in the past Sony is a pretty clean company.
I wish I can come to one of these forums and just see mature posting, not this “Microsoft rules! Sony will go down!” mentality It makes me think my God, these people actually wish Microsoft to exert a monopoly over the game industry as well. If Sony and Microsoft goes down and Microsoft is the defacto Gaming Manufacturer we are going to be in a world of hurt.

Please Sony is just as bad. Maybe you should be routing for Nintendo. They seem to be the only Complany of the three not trying to stick it to us. Microsoft == Sony, so if they both end up fighting it out We == Us, get the great games and cheep systems to play them on. Then we just buy both systems for cheap and play what ever games we want.
Sony is trying move to Digital Distribution so you can’t let others play your games. They don’t want you to lend them to your friend. They wan’t all the money. Oh they also wanted to make it illegal to resale PS3 games, but they couldn’t. Not because we == the gamers == consumers didn’t want this, no they have Microsfot and Nintendo out there allow this. Microsoft Vs Sony Vs (little) Nintendo != Monopoly

I almost didn’t get my 360 because i knew mgs4 would be only for ps3, i was actually counting on Halo to fill the void. I hope this is for real because if it is Sony will lose one of its best selling franchises and people will have one more reason to go for the 360 which is far better than ps3, who the hell would go for the expensive ps3 when you can get a 360 which is said to be on par with ps3, it’s probarbly one of those kids with filthy rich parents, with such a high price Sony effectively lost potential buyers

Aren’t these magazines like a month old? As in, the news they release is always a month behind interwebs? Could ne an old rumour they slapped in.

I thought it was to do exclusivity !? publishers let which ever publication(print/web) they like most or which ever sucked up to them the most have exclusives.It would be a big deal now for print publications to scoop the net so they might ki$$ed a lot of a$$.

I’ve never played a MGS game that I liked. So, I couldn’t care less if it came over, but I know it would be a big deal for others.

On the Xbox 1, a couple MGS games came over. Why wouldn’t that happen with MGS4?

LOL

SC had being coping MGS ideas since the begining, i mean every thing, SC3 was delayed cuz they wanna put the “”new”" close combat, after they ear Koj said “MGS will have a new hand-to-hand combat sys caled CQC” so Ubisoft delayed SC3 to put that little “back stab”

and the “”new”" suit of fisher was a copy of the stealth camoflage used by Koj on MGS1 released on 1998..

if theres a game with no gameplays its SC, suck all the way…

and who the hell hides in a shadows? that isn’t possible to do in the real world, try to simulate it and you see it doesn’t work, so much for the realism..

Assassins Creed was supposed to be exclusive, 360 ended up getting it. It is possible for us to get MGS4. From a profit point of view, MGS4 would make a killing because so many people want it for the 360. I personally loved EVERY MGS game since MGS. It would be a SMART MOVE to release it for the 360.

I am wrong about Microsoft?? This is well known public knowledge buddy. You make it sound like I made up the fact Microsoft tried to exert monopoly in their business practice.

I understand we are all here to play games then stop spouting nonsense about wanting the failure of competitor especially supporting Microsoft.
Support the games, and the developers not the Game Console manufacturer.
Maylon, I hope you are not supporting shoddy business practice? I understand they are out there to win but 2 things:
1) What Microsoft are well known for are trying to create a Monopoly. Which is against every fiber of any red-blooded American, Our country is founded as a Democratic capitalistic country. Not some Communist Monopoly.
2) every one should want healthy good competition not to see a failure of a competitor. That is the only reason you can buy a Xbox 360 for $399 other wise it would have been close to $700-$800. Microsoft is losing money just to compete, which is great for consumers like us.

I never personally said “Microsoft rules”, I was just pointing out that you, mikeferro, are being overly dramatic, and that discussion belongs on another forum.But,I will play the devil’s advocate for sake of argument and ask if controlling 70% of the gaming market would qualify as a monopoly? Because that is roughly what Sony controls, and I highly doubt that MS will take over. Microsofts Xbox business was in fact set up as a defensive tactic, because they had the foresight to see that Sony was taking over the living room with convergent devices. Do you see it as a bad thing?

Maylon I whole heartily agree with you this is a good thing competition is healthy.
I do not think having 70% of market is a monopoly as long as there are competitors. I am just saying some on this board actually spout they hope Sony goes under. Jeeze crazy people.

Microsoft had the forsight, yes but the question is do they really have your interest at heart?
Top Microsoft execs. have said its not the gameing console they care about, they want to create a unified home-media center defacto(ala Windows Media Center 2005)
I actually said this in my previous post also.
If you look at some of the G4 iconic documentaries you will know some of the top Sony guys have been around the days of Activision, Atari and developed for them. These guys talk with a passion that gaming is their life.

Did you know the Sony CEO’s took a pay cut to infuze profits back into the company instead of *cough cough*(some Microsoft executives)who elict to turn a good chunk of the profit into
stock options and pay raises.

Maylon, come on.. are you saying we all have jobs because MS makes such a bug ridden product? or because they tried to put their OS on every single computer they could get their hands on.

If not Microsoft some other company can do it if not better.
Like i said the only reason I bring this point up is from what I saw some of the posters saying on this forum.

Ok, I may be guilty of a little vitriol in my responses, I will admit. But I reason things out as far as big corporations go, in that ANY OS, given if it had that huge an installed base, will have numerous bugs and security holes, its just probability. But then again I suppose it comes with the territory, when your as big as Microsoft, your under alot of scrutiny.

Damn, I got sucked in. MICROSOFT RULZ!

mikeferro before bashing Microsoft, remember sony’s grillstation is costing you $599 due to the fact they are FORCING everyone to buy the stupid blu-ray player. You cry about Microsoft, well Sony is worse - they force feed you technology you don’t need or want and then charge you extra for it. You say you want to play games - thats what the xbox 360 does, the PS3 on the other hand is a movie player that sometimes plays games

Put it this way.

[b]IF IT HAPPENS, GREAT! SONY AND XBOX 360 FANES HAVE A WONDERFUL GAME TO PLAY. IF IT DOESN’T, NEVER-MIND, MAYBE NEXT ONE?[/B]

There are currently 6 millions XB360 owner. By next year when MGS4 are ready there might be 10-15 millions XB360 owner. If they make MGS4 for XB360, my estimation the game can sold at least 5 million copies. The number are too huge for Konami/Kojima Productions to ignore anymore.

Ubisoft and Sega realize how profitable it is going for multi platform, Capcom now also realize it, same as to Square Enix. Konami realize it already, only that they need make Kojima Productions realize it.

PG4,

Sony nor anybody else is forcing me to buy anything I do not want. That is what we have here a healthy competitive market. I could buy a Wii, 360 or( PS3 20gb $499 or 60gb $599).

The premium 360/30GB is $399, and the PS3/20GB is $499. Its only $100 difference but the value is much more than that.
From a practical view, If I wanted to play highdef games and watch highdef movies, wouldn’t the PS3 more value for the money than the 360?
You would have to add 360/HD-DVD $399+$199=$599
versus PS3/20GB/Blue-Ray $499.

I would also worry about the longevity of the DVD9 format 360 use its only 9GB. In a short amount of time the 360 will come across a barrier. (On the other hand Microsoft have said they will quicken the console cycle to 4 years, so I suppose you guys can buy another console in a few more years)

This is exactly what Sony said a few months ago. “Next generation videogames are so expensive to make that many third party exclusive companies will make their games for multiple systems, and first party titles will be more important to the consumer (paraphrased).”

Dude, MGS4 is a sick game, but am i bothered if it comes to the 360? not really, as far as im concerned its the only major exclusive PS3 has over the 360, and without it, IMO wont have any kind of edge (accept motorstorm)… WIthout it they lose, and 360 will win… but with no competition gaming wont get pushed as hard for the “new big thing” for sales meaning gaming would advance slower… Competition is always a good thing, and if you want MGS4, get a ps3..
Im not looking to get a PS3 at launch, but i will definatley think about getting one in a year or 2, simply because i think it has a longer life span then the 360… But by the time the 360 is out of date and useless compared to the PS3, there will already be another console for MS or another company that blows both companies completely out the water and i bet the price will be better…

Also, just like to say, MS will come up with a bigger disk then Blu-ray iff space becomes a problem, theres already a disc that can hold 200gb of data compatable with the 360 that has a protein coat, but why do we need it, RFOM is said to use half of the Blu ray disk, but why, it looks terrible next to Gears… Also, if Blu ray wins, and MS feels the need to, they will release a addon like the HD DVD Drive in Blu-ray for anyone who wishes it, either way, Blu ray or HD they dont lose… IMO

All fanboyism aside, the fact of the matter is the PS3 is proving to be a “me too” system [(hard drive(xbox)+ online gaming community(xbox)+ motion sensing controller(wii)=shameless rip off], and as we get closer and closer to launch, reality is sinking in, and everyone is seeing the PS3 isn’t what Sony is marketing it as. There is no game at this point that CAN’T be done on both systems. Rockstar sees this, Ubisoft sees this, Square Enix saw this with FFXI, how much longer do you seriously think Konami will hold out? (Remember MGS even saw time on the GameCube).

Contrary to the hype, Blu-Ray is in reality the PS3’s achilles heel. It’s an experimental new video storage format embroiled in a format war. It’s so expensive that it’s causing serious delays in hardware manufacturing, and the gamer has no choice in whether they want to pay for it or not. Consider this, if Blu-Ray loses the format war, (which is a high possibility) the cost of manufacturing it will remain expensive which will drive away third party developers and consumers will be left with a ghost console. Sony should know this lesson, it’s how they killed the Dreamcast.

The Xbox360 simply doesn’t have these drawbacks. It can produce the same level of games using the cheaper DVD format. Want to watch HD movies? Pick up a $200 HD-DVD drive. Don’t care about HD movies, save your money for games. The 360 gives gamers that choice and security instead of asking them to risk money on a format that could very well disappear in 2 years (see Betamax). HD-DVD equals the video quality of Blu-Ray for a lot less money.

6 million already sold, likely another 5-10 million by the time MGS4 gets released, if MGS4 is technically possible on the 360, Konami AND Kojima wouldn’t have a reason to say no. Bottom line. Kojima wants his art to reach the largest possible audience. If the PS3 doesn’t give him that alone, he WILL go to the 360.

And even if he doesn’t the 360 will do just fine. Gears will be out in about 2 weeks. Once everyone can compare that to Resistance Fall of Man, the picture will become a lot clearer.

BTW, I have a 360, and a preorder for the Wii, and I own a Gamecube, Xbox and a PS2 and plenty of games for each of them. The above rant is not fanboyism, it’s just good business sense.

Not all exclusives actually.

This guy has no life, if Kojima won’t release MGS4 on 360 then he’ll have made a mistake, but it may be possible for someone out there to make a patch for the 360 allowing us to play MGS on the great microsoft console.

PS3 graphics do look like xbox 1 graphics, n whats with the white line around the windows in ridge racer?
