360 fanboys are going to have to stick to first person shooters. Not only is MGS4 so large that it would practically kill the 360, but Sony isn't going to simply let Microsoft get their hands on one of it's best titles. And since Kojima Productions is with Sony Computer Entertainment, Microsoft would have to go through Sony in the first place.


How will it kill the 360? Sony already let Microsoft get 2 of their major titles Final Fantasy and Tekken.


It will kill the 360 because it's hardware is inferior. Oh, and to answer an earlier quoted post, high score on a review doesn't mean high revenue. MGS2 Substance on the X-Box didn't get that many sales.

Also, Final Fantasy and Tekken aren't owned by companies owned by Sony. Square Enix also ports games to Nintendo, and Tekken is one of the lesser popular fighting series. Metal Gear Solid 4 isn't the same, it is owned by Sony, taxes even the Playstation 3 hardware, and probably beats the shit out of any other 360 game that came out this year. Sony isn't going to let one of it's major gems, practically guaranteed to lead to the purchase of more PS3 units and therefore more games, go to the 360 which can be considered it's main rival.

Inferior is that a joke There both equal in power get over it. Microsoft has already stated that there console can handle MGS4.

Sony does not own MGS4 Konami does All Microsoft needs to do is offer up enough cash to persuade Konami to make a port.

About MGS2 Not much ppl bought it since it was already on the PS2, And mostly everyone had PS2 so whats the point of buying the same game on Xbox.

The PS3 does have better hardware. They aren't equal in power. But it seems as though you're the one that can't get over it. And besides, even if Microsoft tries to shell out money to convince Konami and Kojima Productions, Sony would dish out just as much to ensure that Metal Gear Solid 4 stays PS3 exclusive until they've milked it for every penny. They might try to port it to a different system once they release the special edition which will probably come out in two or three years, but they'll more than likely just keep it to being PS3 exclusive. Besides, it's not like Microsoft is off sharing their best titles. Halo 3 and Bioshock are still Microsoft only. Why should Sony share with them?

If the PS3 is so superior why are the games so washed up? And why are the 360 games better?.

Example Would be Fall out 3

Heres the qoute

The latest issue of PSM3, the UK's first dedicated PlayStation 3 magazine, has an exclusive review of Bethesda's FallOut 3. The usual suspects has already posted scans of the article on the Internet, revealing that the editors of PSM3 admitted that "the PS3 version compares poorly to its Xbox [360] and PC counterparts."

Today, the PSM3 staff tried to rectify this statement by saying that "the PS3 version looks the same as on Xbox, but things in the distance are slightly jaggier/rougher, the textures seem 'muddier' up-close and the frame rate is choppier, especially during the last few story missions."

I would post more Examples but i think you get the point now.

As for Sony saving MGS4 from Microsoft im sure they'll do a good job just like Final Fantasy and Tekken.

Bioshock is MultiPlatform BTW, O and also like Kojima the Director of Bioshock has stated countless times thats It wasn't going to the PS3 but look now its on the PS3. As long as theres a demand for it and money than MGS4 wil probably go to 360 as well.

As i said earlier its all about the money.

Wow.... one game. Be honest, are there ANY good 360 only games that AREN'T first person shooters? Besides, Tekken and Final Fantasy were ALWAYS multi-platform, after MGS2 all further releases into the storyline were PS2 or PSP exclusive. If Microsoft didn't pick up Metal Gear Solid 3, why would it pick up Metal Gear Solid 4? Like you said, it's all about the money. Konami will make more money off of Sony keeping it PS3 exclusive.

Ok Enjoy http://www.metacritic.com/games/xbox360/scores/

Now Compare it to the PS3 list http://www.metacritic.com/games/ps3/scores/

Tekken and Final Fasntasy 13 were exclusives to the PS3 until Microsoft convinced them to make em Multi Platform.

And Wrong Konami will make more money by making MGS4 go to the 360 since there are more 360's out there than PS3's.

The Situation with MGS2 is that there was more PS2's out there than Xbox's and it came out first on PS2 so mostly everyone got the game so there was no need to buy it on Xbox, The Situation now is the complete opposite it came out on the system that has the less consoles so the ppl that have 360's Can't play it. If MGS4 would go to 360 it would make more money since there are more 360 players.

Simple enough for you?

I should have looked this up in the first place. Konami already refused to make MGS4 go multi-platform, and i can't find anything to suggest that Microsoft made a real effort to get their hands on it anyway.

Now Compare it to the PS3 list http://www.metacritic.com/games/ps3/scores/

Tekken and Final Fasntasy 13 were exclusives to the PS3 until Microsoft convinced them to make em Multi Platform.

And Wrong Konami will make more money by making MGS4 go to the 360 since there are more 360's out there than PS3's.

The Situation with MGS2 is that there was more PS2's out there than Xbox's and it came out first on PS2 so mostly everyone got the game so there was no need to buy it on Xbox, The Situation now is the complete opposite it came out on the system that has the less consoles so the ppl that have 360's Can't play it. If MGS4 would go to 360 it would make more money since there are more 360 players.

Simple enough for you?

It's all about the money.



http://www.monstersandcritics.com/gaming/ps3/news/article_1384409.php/

I should have looked this up in the first place. Konami already refused to make MGS4 go multi-platform, and i can't find anything to suggest that Microsoft made a real effort to get their hands on it anyway.


Just like the director of Bioshock who kept saying it wouldn't come to PS3, but now its on PS3.

All we can do is wait and see.

It's all about the money.

360 fanboys are going to have to stick to first person shooters. Not only is MGS4 so large that it would practically kill the 360, but Sony isn't going to simply let Microsoft get their hands on one of it's best titles. And since Kojima Productions is with Sony Computer Entertainment, Microsoft would have to go through Sony in the first place.


How will it kill the 360? Sony already let Microsoft get 2 of their major titles Final Fantasy and Tekken.


It will kill the 360 because it's hardware is inferior. Oh, and to answer an earlier quoted post, high score on a review doesn't mean high revenue. MGS2 Substance on the X-Box didn't get that many sales.

Also, Final Fantasy and Tekken aren't owned by companies owned by Sony. Square Enix also ports games to Nintendo, and Tekken is one of the lesser popular fighting series. Metal Gear Solid 4 isn't the same, it is owned by Sony, taxes even the Playstation 3 hardware, and probably beats the shit out of any other 360 game that came out this year. Sony isn't going to let one of it's major gems, practically guaranteed to lead to the purchase of more PS3 units and therefore more games, go to the 360 which can be considered it's main rival.


Inferior is that a joke There both equal in power get over it. Microsoft has already stated that there console can handle MGS4.

Sony does not own MGS4 Konami does All Microsoft needs to do is offer up enough cash to persuade Konami to make a port.

About MGS2 Not much ppl bought it since it was already on the PS2, And mostly everyone had PS2 so whats the use of buying the same game on Xbox.


The PS3 does have better hardware. They aren't equal in power. But it seems as though you're the one that can't get over it. And besides, even if Microsoft tries to shell out money to convince Konami and Kojima Productions, Sony would dish out just as much to ensure that Metal Gear Solid 4 stays PS3 exclusive until they've milked it for every penny. They might try to port it to a different system once they release the special edition which will probably come out in two or three years, but they'll more than likely just keep it to being PS3 exclusive. Besides, it's not like Microsoft is off sharing their best titles. Halo 3 and Bioshock are still Microsoft only. Why should Sony share with them?


If the PS3 is so superior why are the games so washed up? And why are the 360 games better?.

Example Would be Fall out 3

Heres the qoute

The latest issue of PSM3, the UK's first dedicated PlayStation 3 magazine, has an exclusive review of Bethesda's FallOut 3. The usual suspects has already posted scans of the article on the Internet, revealing that the editors of PSM3 admitted that "the PS3 version compares poorly to its Xbox [360] and PC counterparts."

Today, the PSM3 staff tried to rectify this statement by saying that "the PS3 version looks the same as on Xbox, but things in the distance are slightly jaggier/rougher, the textures seem 'muddier' up-close and the frame rate is choppier, especially during the last few story missions."

I would post more Examples but i think you get the point now.

As for Sony saving MGS4 from Microsoft im sure they'll do a good job just like Final Fantasy and Tekken.

Bioshock is MultiPlatform BTW, O and also like Kojima the Director of Bioshock has stated countless times thats It wasn't going to the PS3 but look now its on the PS3. As long as theres a demand for it and money than MGS4 wil probably go to 360 as well.

As i said earlier its all about the money.


Wow.... one game. Be honest, are there ANY good 360 only games that AREN'T first person shooters? Besides, Tekken and Final Fantasy were ALWAYS multi-platform, after MGS2 all further releases into the storyline were PS2 or PSP exclusive. If Microsoft didn't pick up Metal Gear Solid 3, why would it pick up Metal Gear Solid 4? Like you said, it's all about the money. Konami will make more money off of Sony keeping it PS3 exclusive.

If you say it's all about the money one more time, i'm going to sic my avatar cat on your avatar rodent. Microsoft isn't making ANY effort to try and get MGS4, all you have are fanboy circulated rumors that it will appear. If Microsoft isn't trying to get their hands on it in the first place, why would it appear? *GASP* Could it be that Microsoft isn't going to try and get their hands on it and are trying to distance themselves from the depraved Konami fanboys that only have 360s?! NO!? REALLY?! I looked it up, Bioshock creators never denied going for the PS3. They simply said there wasn't anything in development at the time of the interview. Konami has outright stated that they weren't going to make MGS4 on the 360.

A Qoute

"In a recent phone call with Joystiq, Ken Levine, lead designer of Bioshock, confirmed that there is no PS3 version of Bioshock in the works: "I promise you, there is no secret plan about the PS3 that we're keeping from people. There's no PS3 development going on that we're hiding."

Oh my it didn't say ' there wasn't anything in development at the time of the interview' instead it said they promised it wasn't going to the PS3.

Don't believe a Directors/Lead Designers words too easily they can be swayed with enough money.

Its all about the money.


Oh shitzu i said it again. What now you gonna throw your cat at your monitor? Assuming you have one.

This is getting nowhere. Okay, i'll make a point to apply to the money... though somehow i doubt you'll listen. Microsoft is starting to lose money. It's sales are dropping while Wii and PS3 sales are on the rise. The 360 had an early lead on sales because it came out a year early, but now it's starting to fall behind. The PS3 now has good exclusive titles, better graphics and fewer maintenance issues, and now that Blu-Ray is gaining popularity and the price of it's hardware is decreasing, it can soon start to gain a profit per units sold. It had a longer term financial plan set forth than Microsoft. The Wii is also selling better because it has more classic titles, and parents are more likely to be convinced to grab one for their loser children because it has more family friendly games. And it also has games like No More Heroes, improved editions of Mortal Kombat Armageddon, Resident Evil 4, and Manhunt 2 for gamers who need gore, and is still on speaking terms with Konami and could possibly get a Metal Gear Solid game on it's list before long. Microsoft has lost it's lead and is starting to lose money, Wii sales are still going strong, the PS3 is picking up pace. Microsoft won't try to make a risky financial venture to gain Metal Gear Solid 4 when they know that several hardcore fans would call it a downgraded game.

A good point except Sales aren't dropping but rising and making the Gap between the 360 and PS3 bigger.

Ever since the price cut Sales are up and rising.

Since the Qoutes are too big ill put em in Spoiler tags.

My point is that the 360 is slowing down while the PS3 is gaining pace. With the price of it's hardware dropping, the PS3 will be able to afford a price drop before long, and if it gets low enough it may even catch up to the Wii. The real question is can the 360 improve it's profits or will it be blindsided by the PS3's sudden growth?

Of course that also presents a challenge for Sony. Will the PS3 gain the velocity they need to make it big, or will the eight generation systems come out and will they be forced to pull too much money out of the PS3 project for the PS4 project? They still haven't been able to completely let go of the PS2 because of their slow sales, but now that things are picking up pace, the counsel wars are really starting.

And the big question is what is Nintendo doing in all of this? While web nerds whine about the PS3 and 360, they're not noticing that the Wii has pulled so far into the lead that they may take revenge for the failure of the GameCube. Microsoft has lost a lot of edges that the original X-Box had, and their sales are slowing, but Sony is taking a few gambles. Who will be caught with their pants down?

...

Sheesh. Who knew the web nerds would ever stumble onto something this interesting anyway? Small miracle, don't you think?

Ya and my point is the 360 isn't slowing but gaining and is the most likely candidate than the PS3 to catch up or surpass the Wii.

We both have arguments, sources, and bullheadedness. Lets sit back and see who wins in the end. Though honestly i wouldn't mind seeing Nintendo win. After the Game Cube they need a break.
