MGS4 360 Version Rumour Struck Down With A Tweet

#1 Posted by Linkyshinks (9880 posts) -

I know it's pretty obvious why, but here's some clarification regardless, from Kojima Productions' Kenichiro Imaizumi:
 
http://twitter.com/kojima_pro:  (he's referring to recent Japanese rumours, which stem from finance issues, if I recall correctly) 

   "Recently in the news, it's been written that MGS4's development costs crossed 5 billion [yen], or 7 billion. It didn't cost that much. If it did cost that much, it would have been multiplatform. But, of course, the data can't fit."    

 
 Here's Kojima-san's Twitter, for anyone interested: http://twitter.com/Kojima_Hideo

I bought MGS4 last night and started playing it for the first time. I imagined all the PS3 exclusive jokes were enough to dissolve the multiplatform theories. I figure after 2 years those rumors would have dispelled by now.

as unlikley as it was, a MGS4 360 version would have been cool.

You mean this rumor is still alive? I thought when they announced that Rising wouldn't be using the MGS4 engine due to space and programming issues it was clear as to why it wouldn't leave the PS3

Didn;t this rumor start when the game came out? And end like...two weeks later?

Why would anyone want an old game ported to 360. It was my least favorite MGS game, I sold it after i beat it. Massive Disappointment

Or... primarily because it's going to be an entirely different type of game, hence the new subtitle?

theyre making Rising, which will be awesome. so stop bitching about 4. buy a 360 if you want MGS4.
