No surprise here. MS is buying companies and Sony is buying exclusivity rights, these guys are getting gritty.

I completely agree pixyboi. The various sides in the console "war" are bringing out the big guns now, and aren't taking any prisoners.

Hey, just a thought here; but didn't Metal Gear Solid Substance sell very poorly on the XBox?

That couldn't have anything to do with the fact that everybody had already played MGS2 by that point, and the made for XBox Splinter Cell was kicking ass at the time of Substance's release?

Not to mention the slowdown during the first part of the tanker mission and that it was simply a port of the PS2 game rather than taking advantage of the X-Box's hardware to give it a nice graphics and AI boost.

Good points, but I was thinking more along the lines that Metal Gear's fan base is predominantely on the Playstation.
