Metal Gear Solid 4 on Xbox 360 Still not Definite


There’s nothing quite like a good rumor, and usually good rumors never die. Like Elvis Presley being alive, for instance.

And of course, so many people want to see Metal Gear Solid 4 come out on the Xbox 360. While there’s still no confirmation, Xbox Fanboy caught wind of just enough to make them release this post about the possibility of the port becoming reality. It’s so frustrating.

You know what we need? We need universal translator for all games. That way we wouldn’t need to care about rumors like these, and we could go on with our lives knowing we could play any game we wanted, no matter what system had exclusive rights to it. Of course, I guess that would kill the whole idea of exclusivity.

Wait…Elvis isn’t alive?

It shows how poor the future line up of 360 games is that they just won’t give up on this :roll:


On July 21, 2007 at 8:43 am

The line-up of the 360 is impressive.

I thought a bit ago about the point of fan-boys/girls and I realised it’s all a load of crap.

People simply want to know if MGS4, what could be a very good game (honestly, I’m still not convinced, but I’ll happily be proven wrong) is coming to their console or not. You don’t need to criticise a system’s line-up, honestly.

“You don’t need to criticise a system’s line-up, honestly”

Why not? Its poor. The only big exclusive announced for the next 6-12 months is Halo 3. When you compare that to Killzone 2, MGS4, Final Fantasy and Gran Turismo there is no competition.

Am I allowed to criticise the 360′s reliability or is that wrong also?

Am I allowed to point out that the 360 only shipped 700,000 worldwide in the last fiscal quarter which is a 61% drop on the same period last year, or is that wrong?

When a large amount of 360 owners have spent the last year and a half critiscising the PS3 (even before it was launched) it’s a bit unfair to not allow criticism of the 360 when its justified.

I doubt very much that you have ever told a 360 owner to not criticize the PS3′s price.

You gotta love how the only people saying anything on this issue to the press are “unnamed sources” who have “bankable” information. Who’s setting these standards? Right now, the only hard information we have (and this I know is true, because I personally asked company reps from both Sony and Konami about it at E#) is that the game is exclusive to PS3.

Rumors and speculation are fun to discuss to a point, but I for one am getting to the point where I want an announcement on way or the other.


On July 21, 2007 at 12:58 pm

Yeah, it is possible that MGS4 still coming to Xbox360 after PS3 version but the graphic quality will tune down and take 4 DVD discs.. hahaha

By then Sony will have GT5, Killzone2 and more…


On July 23, 2007 at 5:46 pm

the only valid information about an x-box release is that it has not been officialy denied BY KONAMI.

Hideo Kojima stated the game will not be on 360

the game uses the 6-axis as a core part of the gameplay

the game engine was designed around the cell processor

it will most likely take advantage of the blu ray capacity.

if it is released on x-box it wont be for a while and will probable have reduced gameplay features but better online to compensate. it would probable also be multidisk

NO!! Elvis is still Alive.


On July 24, 2007 at 10:54 am

let it die xbots, all you have is halo and gears, get over it :evil:


On July 24, 2007 at 1:26 pm

This is the official box for the game:


On July 24, 2007 at 11:49 pm

360 has nothing…that’s why the m$ losers are dying for this game.

Do you losers really like backing a company like m$…they don’t care about gaming, they had no reason to enter the market…and you sit there acting like they have something going for their game

m$ was threatened by Sony…they were threatened by Sony’s eventual living room dominance, get over it already…m$ has no place in console gaming.

m$’s pathetic strategy of throwing money at a failing business…it’s just sad.

Killzone, Heavenly Sword, Lair, Socom, Warhawk, Uncharted, GT5, MGS4, FF13, Folklore, EightDays, Ratchet, LBP, Home..the list goes on and on. TONS more Sony exclusives to be unveiled…better get your PS3..unless you wanna play “Gears of Halo” for the rest of your life…


On July 25, 2007 at 8:27 am

Good…shut the f up. Loser.


On July 25, 2007 at 9:26 am

umm ssl, there is nothing official about a photoshopped pic :roll:


On July 29, 2007 at 6:20 pm

why do ps3 fanboy always got 2 put halo and gears down if u want 2 talk about a flop game lets talk killzone


On July 30, 2007 at 5:27 am

Excuse me Norbit the 360 has offered us many great games such as Gears Of War, Darkness and many more also it is so far beating the ps3 in graphics and games as the ps3 has no great game so far and the fiest game is going to be metal gear further more the 360 is promising a number of good games in the future such as Halo3, Bioshock and many many more so plz do not critisise the 360 because so far its doing better then the ps3


On July 30, 2007 at 8:53 am

excuse me xbots, but y is it that when you all say, “360 has tons of games, like halo 3, gears, and many more” its always just many more?, well? what many more GOOD games? bioshock and mass effect? i think thats it so you have 4 good games, and by the looks of halo 3. 3.5 good games, oh wait mass effect looks exactly like halo, ok, 2.5 good games, and when the ps fanboys state their case, they can always come up with more games, they dont just say, “many more”, here i’ll try it, ready? Go! Lair, Heavenly Sword, Littlebigplanet, MGS4, Killzone 2, (ok im over the 4 that 360 has, but i’ll keep going) Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Haze, Unreal Tournament 3(ok the last 2 are timed exclusives, but ps gets mods for unreal and 360 doesnt) I mean this list really goes on, Ratchet and Clank, Final Fantasy, Eight Days, inFamous…. whew, i’m tired from naming off those games, i got nothing left to say as I think the list proves my point quite nicely. And just so everyone knows, not a fanboy, i own both, but i’m seriously considering selling my 360, i mean halo 3 is not going to keep me entertained for long (judging by gears 6 hour storyline, im betting that halo 3′s story will be around the same length. and for 60 bucks a game for ‘nex gen gaming’ thats a rip, sure they say lair is only 15 hours, but its still twice as long as the 360′s top selling game) o this may help those of you who like to see it side by side

Lair Halo 3
Heavenly Sword Bioshock
Ratchet Mass Effect
Uncharted and…….. and…. i dont know what else, scene it? maybe

looks like i’ll be playing my ps3 more than my 360 this year and next.


On July 31, 2007 at 12:47 am

Everyone should enjoy a grame this great. Another thing THELORD you forgot that 360 also has Fable 2,Maraton: Durandal, Two Worlds, Blue Dragon, Project Gotham Racing 4, Eternal Sonata, Mobile Ops: The One Year War, Crash of the Titans, Final Fantasy 11: Wings of the Goddess, Ace Combat 6, Left 4 dead, Phantasy Star Universe, Soldier of Fortune: Payback, Slinter Cell, World in Conflict, Lost Odyssey, Strike Force Red Cell, White Gold: War in Paradise, Chrome 2, Dawn of Fantasy, Destineer Spy Project, The House of the Dead 4, Saints Row 2, War World, Elveon, Too Human, Half Life, Halo Wars and of course what you stated Mass Effect, Halo 3, and Bioshock. Oh yea and Haze Unreal are both on 360. Dont get me wrong PS3 does have games that I like which are MGS4 and maybe Killzone 2, depening on how well it does im not sure so I’ll just wait until Sony makes a real move before I make my move to buy a PS3…..


On July 31, 2007 at 6:53 am

@reaper, you obviously read my post in haste, i stated that unreal and haze are mulitplat. and Saints Row 2, is multiplat, and thus dosnt count.
and actually becuase all the titles you listed are on pc, none are exclusive, seriously it boggles my mind, why did i buy a 400 dollar gaming system that overheats, makes me pay for online, when i can get all those games on my pc with free online and 10 times better graphics., ps3 and wii are the only two real ‘consoles’ out there, because they both have exclusives, 360 doesn’t, all their games are on pc, so theres your answer. you want to buy my 360?, its the 4th one ive returned lol :lol:


On July 31, 2007 at 11:50 am

Shane Kim @ Microsoft was asked about this yesterday and he didn’t even say it was a possibility. He just said he could understand that some company’s have to go multiplatform to make money.

If they thought there was any chance of it comming then someone at Microsoft would at least say ‘it might do’ or ‘there’s a chance’ but no.


On July 31, 2007 at 12:19 pm

Lol sorry THELORD I thought you were a PS fanboy trying to act like he owns a 360 and PS3, but I see your serious. But if thats your opinion thats none of my buisness.


On August 2, 2007 at 12:44 am

Ayways my hopes still up for MGS4 on Xbox 360 :wink: until MGS4 comes out and they don’t say multiplatform then I’ll buy a PS3. Read new article from this is a real rumor:


On August 2, 2007 at 7:04 am

@ reaper, thanks, i’m not a fanboy of either system, i enjoy games because despite what roger ebert says, i believe they are an art form, and i bought my 360 to get these pc games on my tv and with a dual analog controller(i like them for most games, not FPS though, but they do fine) i hope you do take the plunge and buy a ps3, then you can enjoy the best of both worlds, im just a little upset with the qaulity of the machine and i guess my luck with having them break down, (its well ventilated)


On August 2, 2007 at 8:53 am

Reaper Konami said NOTHING about MGS4 coming to any other system. They said they were open to the possibility of the franchise going multiplatform in the future but nothing about MGS4. Once again that’s ‘open to the possibility’. That’s about as non committal a statement as you can get but the retard 360 fanboys seem to thinks its hard evidence.

MGS4 is not coming to the 360. Grow up and get over it.

On October 16, 2007 at 5:37 am

Look here norbit ive had enogh of yr critisism toward the 360 and so as u d not hav a 360 u probably havent played any of the great games that hav com out and also if u go to see that all it needs is a offical annoncement and it will be a slid fact becoz of all the solid facts i have alredy read so if u will plz stop critisising the 360


On January 19, 2008 at 8:18 pm

Who cares xbox 360 dont need mgs4 MGS4 is the only good game I see for ps3. I’m fine with my wii and xbox 360. And is there a reason why I see more ps3s in stock at a store then xbox 360s and wiis?


On March 28, 2008 at 4:26 pm

Afraid that Microsoft’s year-early release of the console may be starting to backfire on them.

Since it came out a year early programmers were designing games for the XB and porting them over to the PS3 giving the XB an advantage. Now that bluray has won the hi-def war, developers are starting to plan on the extra capacity to program better games since there is no question which format they should work with. This means that unless XB plans to get a blu-ray add on capable of actually playing games on this format, they’ll be stuck to a limited DVD capacity. Konami announced this will be on a dual-layer BD making the game at least 25GB (with a possibility of going up to 50); it would take 7 single DVDs or 3 dual-layer DVD to match the minimum, all assuming they can somehow make the cell-dependent features compatible with XB. I had an XB until I saw that most of the games were simply ported over to PS3. I sold it and got a PS3. Figured it was better to have extra power under the hood for future releases than have one that would be ‘dated’ earlier (you can always go ‘backwards’ when you have more under the hood, but you can never go up unless you can expand the processor).

Never know though…..


On April 1, 2008 at 11:50 am

OK, for every1 here. I have both consoles, and y is it that ps3 fanboys are on a xbox fanboy site?
And for games, i was massively disappointed with the selection of games that u can get for the PS3. Xbox has far more, and it has better gameplay, in my opinion (and my friends) but each to his own. I mainly use my PS3 to watch movies cuz its nice an quiet
@theone, wat r u talking about? CoD4 was even ported over to th PS3, ive played it on both of them and th xbox has better graphics in CoD4!
@THELORD i kno u have had sum bad luck with ur xbox, but thats all it was! Im onto my 3rd PS3, cuz my first 2 broke. My xbox hasnt broken 1 time and its not very well ventilated.

Just pointing out these facts, cuz i prefer my 360 and want MGS4 for it, but instead i find flaming of consoles! Enough already! If u dont have both, ur opinion doesnt count, OK? DEAL WITH IT!

THELORD ur opinion is ok, cuz uve had troubles with it, but every1 else, get a life, its just a console!


On April 6, 2008 at 1:56 pm

Everything that is ported will run better on the native environment rather than thru an emulated environment; hence apps that are designed for XB and ‘ported’ to the PS3 will be somewhat lagging from the native XB version since it is being emulated. My point is, is that once programmers begin to start wanting additional space that simply is too large for a DVD (BD) the XB simply won’t be capable of running it without the need for multi-discs and assuming the game isn’t developed around the Cell. The Cell would be capable of running anything on the XB because of its higher specs, but the XB wouldn’t be capable of running games designed in this manner. At this point, XB will see games ported over…..

SLOW people

On May 8, 2008 at 6:07 pm

OMG people who dont know nothing about gameing blueray is slow are as s*@# it is so slow in fact that game devolpers resulted to reinstalling data that is allready on the disk on to the ps3 hard drive to make games load quicker either that or the duplicate game data and place it in empty spots on the disk so the drive laser dosent have to travel as much. both methods make all that extra space redundant so MGS4 can be put on a normal DVD and can be played on the xbox with out that much lag. Im no fanboy but i hate when ps3 fanboys go and list crap like blueray can fit more crap when truly doesnt so go play lair

i dont see y u lot argue so much game is a game u like wa u like but u lot confuse mee man is MGS4 commin out on 360 or not :?: coz if it aint den da means i have to get a frikin ps3 and trus me das jus long and money wastin if it aint den hu ever made it is a hater :evil:


On October 6, 2008 at 9:35 am

I will be so pissed if they have that game on xbox, and i highly doubt they will have that game for xbox because.. that game is too long, and it doesn’t play blue ray.. Just like dude said on the other site i was at, if they made mgs4 for xbox, then it’d be just like making halo 3 for ps3.
