Why don't you just come out and say it - You're pissed the game isn't going multiplatform because you want to play it and dont own the proper system for it. Because that's what it all boils down to.

Any game that goes multiplatform will sell better than if it's an exclusive. Imagine Halo being released for the PS2. It would have sold MILLIONS more copies. But hey, I guess MS & Bungie don't want to make any money.


EGGGGGGGGGGZACTLY....well put

elmike that hit the nail on the head. And i bet the reason it didnt go on the 360 is one he said in a previous interview that he did not want to leave metal gears roots(in this generation, obviously it was on nintendo so dont flame me lol), and the other reason i would say is they were sure to boast during development how it was coded to take full use of the cell and also the capacity of blu-ray. Now the second reason can be disputed but i cant help but think its true.

Let's be glad that some people, like the Japanese folks developing and marketing this game, don't agree with you.

You're right. Sony needs some games to sell systems. That's why we have exclusives! It may stink, but you have to admit the only reason you bought a xbox was likely just to play halo.

Metal Gear is awesome though!

Hey hey, first I never said ""lawl, Sony lost another series!"... First of all I don't care whether MGS4 does or does not go on X360. Then, how is the PS3 the "proper" system?

Also Enterprise typed the following:

It wouldnt have done well on the 360
I was just pointing out that how can he make a conclusion like that without facts or any info input.


Also the Halo issue that you are stating, is between Microsoft AND Bungie, this was Kojimas decision NOT Sony. So you are false in all arguments. I am just looking for the best opportunities for the game and Kojima itself. So don't come to conclusions.

MGS4 would have done alright if it had went on the X360 as well. It's all about money and Kojima would have gotten more if it went on X360.
Lmao im the least fanboy person you will ever meet. LOL. Its actually more of ana assumption but a logical assumption. As MGS4 is purely coded for cell I could see it having issues on the 360 CPU even if it was recoded which I could see taking a while. Also considering 360 is a DVD only format system out of the box then I doubt MGS4 would be a DVD format for the 360 but may have to be put on HD-DVD which would force 360 people to shed out more money for another drive just to play the game...thus I couldnt see it selling very well.

Remember MGS4 4 is on a BD-ROM ( 50GB ). That games is going to be larger than 4GB im sure of it.

yeah konomi was boasting about how they were utilizing blu-rays capacity and claimed they would come close the the 50gb limit. If thats true who knows but i would bet its gonna be more then 9.5gb so dual layer dvd is out unless on more then one disk.

Talk about brand loyalty? Lol what?

So Halo should be multi platform? and so should Mario?

You have got to accept that ALL console makers have exclusives. Thats how they generate sales for their consoles. And that is how they rake in the cash.

MGS has been a play station exclusive since MGS1. Why would you complain that it is an exclusive now? I don't get it.........this was expected, how could you possibly be disappointed.

LOL let me know when metal gear sales anywhere near Halo and Super Mario numbers. I dont even care if Metal Gear games are exclusive or not - even if it did go to wii or to 360, i STILL would not play b/c i don't enjoy metal gay games. I'll be honest with you, if I was a developer I would go multiplatform. It's alot easier to sale games across 20+ million consoles as opposed to 3 million. Metal Gear series has not even been a system saler, and never will be, nothing like Super Mario, or Halo, or even Gears of War. Let's face it, regardless if you like those games or not, those three are system sellers.
