New Metal Gear Teaser Site is Mysterious and Green; Hints at an Xbox Title?

Nothing bugs me more than when developers tease us with what their doing by giving us some cryptic message or visual that only just fuels the internet rumor mill. Right now, the net seems to be buzzing about this mysterious teaser site that Konami has put up. It really does nothing but flash the Konami logo and the strange message above over and over, but that’s already enough to get the speculators going. Most people believe this indicates that the Metal Gear franchise will be crossing over to the Xbox 360 in the near future, but we’ll really have to wait until Konami says something before we know for sure. Unfortunately, with the way they tend to keep a lid on the details of their Metal Gear games, I wouldn’t expect to hear any concrete news for awhile.

It’s really in Konami’s best interest to move over to the Xbox 360 anyway…it’s an untapped resource for the Metal Gear franchise. It will probably be multiplatform just like most 3rd party games are though….

Go Marlins!!!!

Oh come on. Two things… Metal Gear has ALWAYS used similar colors in the games. The color in no way is a ‘definite’ hint at an Xbox port. It would be a complete waste. 1 benefit: Xbox live. Tons of downsides: Production costs would rise, being that it’d be 6 disks. Game quality would suffer. PS3 is built to handle a game like MGS4 much better. Microsoft would find someway of adding something that would totally mess with the game. Besides… If you’ve played MGS4, You should realize they’d need to mess with many different symbols and such to not piss Microsoft off. It pretty much just shouts “GO BUY A MAC! SCREW MICROSOFT!” I mean really, every scene with Otacon show his Mac, and not one scene shows a PC at all. It’d be hard enough to port let alone change every single frame with a picture of a Mac in it. So there is no way it’s gonna be a port.

My theories consist of it meaning simply that the next Metal Gear is ON, as in being made. That because of the flipped symbols, it represents that the game takes place in a Spanish country, and that once again the ‘power’ symbol just means it’s ON. Or possibly another Metal Gear Ac!d is to be produced. But in reality, that last symbol is only supposed to represent a power symbol, and maybe it’s not. What if is a circle with the ! representing Metal Gear. AKA Metal Gear has gone full circle, and they are going back to remake the first few games, to create better gameplay and show people the storyline of Metal Gear, Metal Gear: Solid Snake, and Metal Gear Solid 1.
