207w ago - It was confirmed by Hideo Kojima himself, Metal Gear Solid will now be on the Xbox 360 and the next game will be called Metal Gear Solid: Rising. It will revolve around Raiden.

I love how people are already rejecting and badmouthing the game just because its going to the xbox 360. Sony fanboys felt hurt their biggest franchise are going to xbox and try to make the game look like crap.
That obviously happens the other way around, with microsoft guys ripping on sony boys, but its about the game, not the consoles. I'm a big MGS fan and I'l definily play this game no matter the console. Its stupid for them to say how bad a game that is not even out is just because its on that console you hate so much for no reason.
I think it was always going to end up on the 360 at some point, but I'm glad Kojima did it this way by starting a new chapter rather than porting MGS4 - and if this isn't exclusive it just shows how lame Microsoft are bigging a 3rd party multi plat game up
I hope we have some good surprises today at Sony, and if there is a new MGS game made to be exclusive it will be another hit for Sony with a bold statement
