Wait... what? Surely this is a fake. It's pretty stupid if an online store goes through the trouble of photoshopping it onto the xbox case.

Bracing myself for the incoming shitstorm.

@Tobiass: have you taken into account this might be a website mistake? You'd think something like this will have an official statement from MS and or Konami.

#5 Posted by Dixavd (1291 posts) -

I think it's odd they closed down all the online on the PS3 and now are rereleasing it on the 360 (which will undoubtedly make playstation owners either want to play it again or go and get it). Weird.

Other than that though, it makes sense to me (but then again, I never thought of MGS as a Sony thing anyway)

#6 Posted by RE_Player1 (7545 posts) -

That's fake.

#7 Posted by Cheesebob (1230 posts) -

Huh. Needless to say I would buy THE SHIT out of that!!!!!!

It still bears the PS3 description: "Features:

  • MGS4 pushes the power of the PLAYSTATION® 3 to its limits with cutting edge graphics and surround sound. It also aims to be the hallmark title for the new DUALSHOCK®3 controller."

Probably fake :(

#10 Edited by RE_Player1 (7545 posts) -

I like this part in the description...

MGS4 pushes the power of the PLAYSTATION® 3 to its limits with cutting edge graphics and surround sound. It also aims to be the hallmark title for the new DUALSHOCK®3 controller.

I like the description of that sales page, "MGS4 pushes the power of your Playstation 3 to it's limits"

That description is also over 4 years old, as the Dualshock 3 is not new anymore. Clearly they copy and pasted the description from a very old source.

MGS4 is not 25 years old! FAKE

It's saying that Metal Gear the franchise is 25 years old, which is true.

Still It's probably fake.

Better luck next time sensational headliner!

#19 Posted by KevinK (198 posts) -

MGS4 on Xbox would only need about 3 DVDs to make the whole game fit.

I'd buy it...so jokes on them if it's not legit! Don't take my money then.

#22 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19305 posts) -

Yep, totally legit.

#23 Posted by DoctorDanger99 (686 posts) -

god i hope this is true. i really wanna play this game as im a huge MGS fan and its the only one ive never played. but i really dont wanna buy a ps3 for just one game.

#24 Posted by BigBoss1911 (2408 posts) -

Ya not real.

#25 Posted by huntad (1930 posts) -

I would get it if it turned out to be real someday.

#26 Posted by IBurningStar (2160 posts) -

Yeah, because this information is coming from a source we all know of and trust...

This is fake. Konami would have to actually go in and change parts of the game before they could release it on 360, and I really don't think they would be willing to put in the effort to do it. I mean, look how much hard work they put into those Silent Hill and Zone of the Enders collections.

#27 Posted by Tylea002 (2295 posts) -

If this ever ends up being real, I regret listening to all the spoilers on it back in the day.

#28 Posted by Taku128 (787 posts) -

I want this to be real just because of how ridiculous it is. Xbox 360 gets Metal Gear Solid 4... years after it came out on PS3.

#29 Posted by TooWalrus (13128 posts) -

Ooooh man. I remember that year at E3, what was it, 2010? Where everyone was like MGS4 4 360!! And everyone else was like NUH UH!! Then Kojima came out on stage at the Microsoft press conference and everyone was like SEE TOLD YA MGS4 4 360!! Then he was like MGSR and everyone else was like LOL TOLD YA!! ...good times.

#30 Posted by Zacagawea (1577 posts) -

Hope this happens, love to play it

#31 Posted by Colourful_Hippie (4328 posts) -

lol

#32 Posted by CycloneDE (46 posts) -

This would be awesome just so I could stop thinking about buying a PS3.

But yeah, we heard nothing about this and it's supposed to come out 07.12.12? No way.

Sigh... I can never tell anymore on the internet.

#34 Edited by Vod_Crack (701 posts) -

Another way of knowing it's definitely fake is that the BBFC don't give age ratings for videogames anymore.

#35 Edited by Bourbon_Warrior (4523 posts) -

Awesome I will buy it. Never finished it, plus Achievements!

This is really strange, I buy all my games from that site, it's like the no1 online store for my country. Would be weird if fake, someone must of hacked in.

You're not missing much, I think it's the worst one. Can't decide if 3 > 1 > 2 > 4 or 1 > 3 > 2 > 4, probably the latter.

Octocamo is lame.

#37 Posted by PhilipDuck (530 posts) -

Reckon it is a fake, be good though if it did, give me a reason to play through it again for the 100th time!

#38 Edited by Peanut (953 posts) -

It would be hilarious because WHAT ABOUT THAT CONVERSATION ABOUT DISC SWAPPIIIIING!? Haaaaaaaaaaaaaa

#39 Posted by JoeMarsden (300 posts) -

That box art looks horribly photoshopped around the area where "Only on PlayStation" would be on the PS3 version box art. Shame, because I would totally buy this if it did end up on 360.

#40 Posted by Cincaid (2953 posts) -

So maybe it's just me avoiding Kojima games like the plague, but could someone fill me in on why this would be so mindblowing? I mean, platform exclusives have switched platforms before (Mass Effect, for example), or is this game some extreme case?

#41 Posted by BlatantNinja23 (930 posts) -

Totally possible, especially since I think we'll find out the new metal gear will be on the next xbox. So why not finally bring 4 to the 360? Though, I feel like konami would have made a bigger deal out of this than what will be some upcoming press release saying it's out in a week or two. Honestly MSG 4 is still the only non psn ps3 exclusive that I actually greatly enjoyed.

At this point I feel like it's 50/50 if it actually exists or not. Both sides kinda make sense. The photoshop look could just be them quick throwing up art on the page for all we known.

@evanbower: THE KING IS A LIE.

#44 Posted by NegativeCero (2973 posts) -

They didn't even put any effort into making it believable. I would definitely not mind finally playing that game though.

#45 Posted by Turtlebird95 (2283 posts) -

Well if this were to be legit at least I could play it without having to download 20 updates.

That's how I felt about BioShock on PS3. Luckily, that game is so good that even though I knew the Big Twist before jumping in, by the time I'd gotten to it, I was so absorbed in everything that I'd forgotten about it and it still took me by surprise.

Also, the listing says it released on November 1, 2012. If this were true, it would already be out. You would already be playing it.

Metal Gear Solid has always been a pretty hardcore PlayStation-exclusive brand, and everybody thought they were going to drop the bomb at a Microsoft E3 press conference that it would be coming to 360 (like what happened with GTA IV) and it never did. So it'd be kind of crazy for it to not be a PS3-exclusive anymore.
