Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 Exclusive - Page 6

post #51 of 62
Mike quoted me before I edited my post. I said "most" not "all."

I was one of those people who bought a 360 mainly for Gears but Gears did not spur 3+ million people to buy 360s in 10 weeks. Until I see hard evidence, I don't believe it.

Gears was, and still is, a system seller but the lengths to which you are making it out to be don't seem realistic. The way you are writing your posts makes it appear that you think only new 360 customers bought Gears.

The fact alone that you are comparing a single game like GoW to the storied MGS franchise is foolish. MGS has been around for YEARS. Secondly, every game is a console seller. It just depends on who wants what. I'm sure people have bought a certain console to play the newest Harry Potter game. I'm through with this discussion.

I Simply argued that staying exclusive is not profitable in today's video game console market. The sale of Gears of War on the 360 platform nearing that of the total PS3 consoles sold globally would be a fair indication of what profit is being lost by staying exclusive. To assume that everyone with a PS3 is going to buy MGS4 is absurd, and it would fairly be safe to say IF MGS4 had nearly the same attach rate as Gears of War does, it sure has its work cut out for it. Trying to literally double the PS3 population with the sale of 1 game is a gargantuan feat to achieve.

that is absurd yes not everyone who bought a ps3 is gonna buy that game, i have a hunch alot of them will, but i also think alot of people who wanted the ps3 will buy now that a most likely great game from a great series is coming out. Just like youll prob see a great spike in sales when ff13 comes out.

Yeah, I bought the PC ver out of curiosity. Even back then, it was the first game to be crammed onto a single DVD. I can easily imagine MGS4 will exceed a dual layer DVD.

I disagree. As stated in a previous post...MGS has been coded FOR the Cell. Altering all that code to make it 360 or even PC compatible means they will:
a) Inject bugs which will require patches which will piss people off
b) Sacrifice performance for the cross platform compatibility

If I buy a specialized gaming console like the 360 or PS3, I want highly optimized games. Otherwise, what's the point of all that exotic hardware?

What do you disagree with what I posted? It's common sense to think that if you are selling to a larger audience, you'll have increased profits.
