We're Actively Looking Into Reporting This Metal Gear Solid 4 On Xbox 360 Story

We're also actively thinking about unpacking, taking a shower, and perhaps ordering pizza.

Or maybe this lady could come up every few hours and say "please insert the next disc!"
IGN has the goods on a TGS-related report on multiplatform trends from a Japanese investment research company called Morningstar. Apparently some Konami public relationist was asked about Metal Gear Solid 4 on the Xbox 360, and this person is quoted with "we're actively looking into a release for the Xbox 360."

So consider the whole MGS4/360 rumor thing back on, I guess. 

IGN goes on to talk about the hurdles in putting the large Blu-Ray game onto several Xbox 360 discs. Perhaps everyone has forgotten that as of 11/19, we'll all be able to install Xbox 360 games to our 360's hard drive. While slapping a fat "requires 60GB or 120GB hard drive" logo on the back of the box would probably deter a lot of people, it would solve the problem. That said, a disc swap at every act or so wouldn't be that punishing, either.

Then what does Sony have other than Little Big Planet!?

Oh god... Not again.

Posted by imayellowfellow

im sort of done with this game regardless so it doesnt really matter

Posted by Rhombus_Of_Terror

I can't wait to see the internet when this becomes true...

Posted by RHCPfan24

Well, I would be really happy but I am getting a PS3 for Christmas so I can get it the way actually intended. 

Posted by Fr0Br0

Oh God, do you hear them? They're coming! The fanboys are coming! Head to cover! *Hides in bomb shelter*

Posted by OmegaPirate

Come on man - this is just as bad as the "they are making a gears game for ps3 rumours" That appear every 15 minutes, but no-one runs with those, just leave it be

We can do without another " We hate final fantasy Its shite" to "OMG WE FINALLY GET IT" Turnaround.

A lot of people on this website could do without eating their hats too

Argh, why? I thought this crap was over!

Posted by TurboMan

honestly, what PS3 owner cares where MGS 4 goes as of now.... the has been out for months, if it reaches out for a wider audience, good for it... it deserves as many players as possible....

3rd party exclusives are so dumb these days
Posted by Superchris129

We can only hope....

Posted by DiGiTaL_SiN

I would play it even if it came on floppy disks, just port the damn thing and I won't mind!

Posted by NinjaSquirrel

Not going to happen.

I think Payton left Kojima for this kind of stuff. He always got quoted for anything that could "prove" MGS4 on 360.

I personally don't have any qualms against it, and would actually pick up an arcade unit to see all the changes in content they had to make because, seriously, all these non-Microsoft  companies (like Apple and Sony obviously) have so much advertising within the game and the fact that the game emulates a section of the PS1 version natively, I seriously wanna see how this all goes down.

I do suppose they can change some of the computers and the ipod to windows and Zune and whatnot, but how do you emulate a Zune with the right stick effectively? Also, I heard Kojima was an Apple fanboy, can anyone confirm this?

Posted by Matches_Malone

Hmm. I wouldn't mind watching this game.  I was going to purchase a PS3 for FF13.  MGS4 on the 360 would just be a bonus for me.

Posted by spiceninja

I don't mind swapping discs. It's not a big deal. But the new Dashboard could fix the problem with us being able to install games to the hard drive, just like you said in the article.

I sure as hell hope this happens. Now all we need is God of War 3 and Little Big Planet to come to the 360 and I won't need to buy a PS3! :P

Posted by frenchdork

I'm still waiting for the PC version.

Say, by the way, where did you ever get the inspiration for a motostorm sack boy? So original. 

Posted by ComradeStalin

I heard it was coming to the TI-83 Plus...but don't quote me on that...

Posted by Everyones_A_Critic

I would shit my pants if this happened.

Posted by Mister_Snig

I don't get it. Why do people oppose the idea of putting MGS4 on another system?

Posted by ComradeCrash

I would be happy if that happen because I bought an Xbox 360 and can't afford a PS3 at the moment...

Posted by John

You people and your exlusives.... why not share the love?

Posted by Nifty_Shark

ugh. Just drop until there is something real cause I would love to play MGS4.

Posted by Otacon

Well Konami do miss their MGS4 hype...

Posted by SpikeDelight

I have a 360 and I usually don't care what games go multiplatform. I actually prefer 360 games to their PS3 counterparts because they have Achievements. But for some reason I furiously want this game to stay a PS3 exclusive. Call me selfish, but I don't know. This one game seems like it should stay a PS3-only title in my opinion. Its identity is so PS3 to me I couldn't imagine it being on Xbox 360. Even the way the aiming works I couldn't imagine using  the 360 controller for it, even though I believe it to be a superior controller for shooters. Something just wouldn't feel right about it, I don't know. There's just something about this game. Also it's my favorite video game of all time and I waited on line on opening day in New York City to get it. Maybe I'm biased. I'm sure someone else knows what I'm talking about though, right?

Posted by Kiemoe

I just can't wait to see the 360 edited parts, like sunny with the psp, snake with the sixaxis, otacon talking about blu-ray, all with a big CENSORED over it or something lol.

Posted by ImperiousRix

Just give us the damn thing!
I'll change a disc every ten minutes and won't mind!

Posted by Pyrotechnic

Yay, I get to play the MGS4! This is great news!

Posted by HatKing

I don't know...really I'm not sure I'd play it even if it came to the system I own.  I mean I loved MGS2 back in the day but my tastes have changed a lot since then, a coherent story is something I appreciate now. 

Posted by DrSbaitso

I loved MGS4, a great conclusion to a spectacular series, but the whole install thing kills me, everyone was so hot on the fact that you didn't need to swap discs for this game but lo and behold between every completed chapter, there was a fucking MINIMUM 2 minute install (sometimes as long as 8 minutes for the first chapter or two). You couldn't keep said install data on your Hard Drive so after you completed the game if you wanted to jump around to different chapters you had to reinstall the data every time! Not that it wasnt a blast watching Snake smoke a butt and recieve some awsome health tips from konami but i think i can change a disc in less than 2 minutes!

Don't see it happening but if it comes out on 360 before I get a PS3 next year then I'll pick it up.

Posted by neoepoch

Too bad the whole game has a billion in-game PlayStation nods that it would have to be completely reworked in order to remove that stuff. And all of the breaking the fourth wall stuff has a lot of PlayStation jokes, the game would have to be very different.

Posted by TomboDemon

Weve already taken Tekken from them
lets take the rest!
resistance and killzone on xbox anyone?

Posted by borgmaster

this again? if it does happen then that's one more reason for me to never buy a PS3....

Posted by VoodooTerror

never going to happen, the 360 couldnt handle it and most mgs fans have already got it/played it so i dont think it will sell. i would like it to happen though, not so that i can play it, i already have it, but so that it may start a trend of all games being released on both consoles

Posted by Chocobo_Blitzer

god I wish. I really want to see the conclusion of the series but I don't want to buy a Little Big Planet box.

Posted by MisterSpiffy

This is fucking amazing.

Man,stop toying with my emotions.

It's not gonna happin

Posted by RenegadeSaint

Don't be surprised if this is true people.  Konami likes money and many 360 gamers like MGS.  It makes sense.  Also, swapping discs every 5 hours or so shouldn't deter you from playing a game.  If it does, you have serious laziness issues.

Posted by Milkman

There's going to be fucking riots in the streets if this ends up true. Bar up the doors and windows. Protect the women and children.

its NOT POSSIBLE. All or most of the voice actors will need to come back for some extensive voice work, they will have to change the sleek sixaxis snake is toting into a bulky 360 behemoth of a controller, the PS1 is mentioned throughout and the 360 DOESNT HAVE THE POWER REQUIRED TO RUN THIS PROPERLY.

and Kojima said its a PS3 exclusive.

Not i repeat NOT happening

Posted by kev670

disc swap wouldn't bother me. All they need to do now is put littlebigplanet on the xbox and Sony wil NEVER see my €400

Posted by holyhawk7666

You know, they don't HAVE to change all the play station stuff.  With a cash cow that big they don't need to worry about competition.
