Metal Gear Solid 4 last of the great exclusives?

50°
345w ago - "Metal Gear Solid 4" is not only one of the most eagerly awaited games for Sony's PlayStation 3, it is also among the last of a dying breed -- games designed exclusively for one gaming console.

Developed by Japan's Konami (9766.T: Quote, Profile, Research) and due out next year, the game is the latest installment in the action series that produced smash hits for Sony's (6758.T: Quote, Profile, Research) earlier PlayStation 2.

It's a prime example of a game known in the industry as a "third party exclusive", as opposed to "first party" ones made by game-console makers Sony, Microsoft (MSFT.O: Quote, Profile, Research) and Nintendo (7974.OS: Quote, Profile, Research).
For years, the console makers have sought to secure such exclusives as a way to drive adoption of their machines.

"We're telling our fans that if you want to play 'Metal Gear Solid 4', you have to buy a PS3," said Ryan Payton, the assistant producer of the game.

"The PlayStation brand has always been good to us, and we're pretty bullish on the PS3."

To quote: The contexts are truely independent including:
- object bindings: since lv1_gpu_context_attribute:fb_setup fails with LV1_BUSY, we have to bind objects by hand in the newly created context. For this we can use the exact same commands FB_SETUP puts in the FIFO (http://www.everfall.com/paste/id.php?ew29498z816w) when creating the first context.
- iomapping: the lv1_gpu_context_iomap call has to be done again to allow the GPU to access XDR. The location of the mapping in GPU space (GPU_IOIF) can be the same or different from the value used by ps3fb (0x0d000000)
- FIFO control and location: the FIFO control registers initially read as zero. They can be written to with the address of the second context FIFO. In my test I used the 64kB just before the ps3fb FIFO (i.e. 128kb from the end of the XDR ps3fb_videomemory region). So I put 0x0e1e0000 in the registers (0x10000 less than...
