211w 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.
This now means that if a game like Metal Gear Solid 4 comes out again with the same capacity used the Xbox 360 version will need at least 2 discs, most likely 3.
To quote: Konami head honcho Hideo Kojima sensationally appeared on stage at the Microsoft E3 presser and announced Metal Gear Solid: Rising.
MGS 2's Raiden will be the star this time. No Snake.
"The Metal Gear Solid series is one of the most highly acclaimed video game franchises of all time," said Anthony Crouts, vice president of marketing for Konami Digital Entertainment.
"With Metal Gear Solid: Rising, the Xbox 360 community will finally get a chance to enjoy the action and excitement that this popular franchise is known to offer."
So, all those rumors of a Metal Gear coming to Xbox 360 were true.
Press Release: Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., announced today that Metal Gear Solid: Rising is currently in development for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft - the first Metal Gear Solid game to launch on the Xbox 360....
213w ago - With all the hype surround the NEXT Kojima Web site recently, a new "hint" from Kojima Productions surfaces in the form of a magazine ad.
I'm sure people are hoping and anticipating the game to be MGS5. A video has been posted on youtube by a Japanese gamer who has his webcam pointed at an unusual Kojima Productions/Konami ad in the back of a Japanese magazine.
The ad is very vague and unusual as you can see in the video linked, but watch what happens when the right Internet URL is opened on Kojima's NEXT Web site.
214w ago - With E3 just around the corner, there has been tremendous buzz surrounding Microsoft's BIG announcement for the event.
One specific speculation has been the possibility of a port of the highly successful and critically acclaimed Metal Gear Solid 4.
In fact, a mysterious new Twitterer going by the name Game Fork has been tweeting quite a bit about "MGS+O" (Metal Gear Solid + Oxide) and even confirming it will be announced at E3.
While we all love to speculate about potential announcements at E3, it's important to stay grounded and really think about what is truly plausible. That said, the possibility of MGS4 coming to the 360 seems doubtful to me.
In Metal Gear Solid 4, Hideo Kojima designed a game that was tailored to utilze and take advantage of the PS3's powerful hardware and capabilities.
It would seem highly unlikely that Kojima would tinker in anyway with MGS4 in order to have it play on the Xbox 360. Well, at least that's my take on it. What's your take on this? Will the Xbox 360 get MGS4? Feel free to comment below!
