I have to say that if the positions of the Wii and the 360 were reversed in Japan, or even if the Wii had any hope whatsoever of running MGS4, we would've heard MGS4 for the Wii last year.

I think this generation we're going to find it hard to see any exclusives between the PS3 and the 360 outside of first-party titles and maybe FFXIII. Even if the PS3 reaches a 33% market share (which it does not yet have) it's going to be difficult to ignore the other 33% that the 360 has. And this goes both ways. I wouldn't be surprised to see Mass Effect on the PS3 sometime in 2008.

If I were Microsoft, I'd be looking to send a lot of my titles to other consoles. Not Halo, obviously, but Rare properties like Viva Piņata (which I can see on the DS).

Konami hasn't had a big hit in a while. I'm sure Winning Eleven and DDR bring in the cash, but neither of these (AFAIK) are a hit the size of MGS. It would be a bad business decision for them to remain exclusive, especially so early on in the PS3's life.

so, I guess this can be locked. It was announced at Sony's E3 conference that MGS4 is exclusive to PS3.

timed exclusive is still an option. Didn't Konami just reiterate last week that multi-platform may still happen to recoup costs?

Chances are definitely slim, but they're still there.

First ever gameplay footage of MGS4:

http://gametrailers.com/player/22702.html

Finally, after getting several trailers with nothing but cutscenes, we finally get to see some actual gameplay.

Notice when Snake controls the little robot that he is using a Sixaxis controller to do so. I wonder if this could be a hint that the game will remain exclusive.

OK, that gameplay looks sick. I think I will always prefer my MGS in corridors, but that outside environment action looks really fun. There are probably a 1,000 different ways to complete a mission.

Please let this come to the 360.

Fixed.

It looks good but not as mindblowingly awesome anymore since Gears has been out. The character animations are especially good.

Interestingly enough the Rumor section of the newest OXM mentions that it is still coming to the 360. The little blurb says it is being ported by a different company.

No doubt. I wonder if there are any other video game rumors we need to confirm as a rumor.

HMV takes MGS4 360 pre-orders - 5m after PS3 release?
>> Another round of Metal Gear Solid 4 on Xbox 360 rumors ...
From computerandvideogames.com:
Here we go again. The latest 'MGS4-going-multi-platform' rumour is interesting for two reasons. Mega entertainment retailer HMV is taking pre-orders for the 360 version right now and the firm even dates both version of the game.

Metal Gear Solid 4 will apparently be available from April 18, 2008 on PlayStation 3 only according to the listing. Then, just over five months later, the Xbox 360 will be blessed with Solid Snake's presence on September 26 (one year exactly after the launch of Halo 3, trivia fans).

And it comes with a hidden code to make the original Killzone a good game. Seriously, I don't get why there is so much hype for Killzone 2 when the original was mediocre at best.

'MGS4 for Xbox 360' a mistake, admits HMV
>> From gamesindustry.biz:
High Street retailer HMV has admitted a pre-order listing for Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots on the Xbox 360 was a mistake by its online admin team.

"In his enthusiasm, one of our online games team indicated that hmv.co.uk would start taking pre-orders for MGS4 on Xbox 360, when, in fact, he simply meant to ask customers if they wished to receive an alert in the event of this title one day coming out on this platform," admitted the retailer to GamesIndustry.biz

Still they must have some inkling of a 360 release to even offer that notification. I mean, it's not like they're offering one for Super Mario Galaxy for the PSP, right?

Yeah, it's always fishy when these "mistakes" happen.

Seems odd that the date was different for both platforms.

Provided that the 360 userbase is still much larger than the PS3 userbase by next year, I would guess that we'll see it on the 360.

I think this listing was a mistake. I can buy that it may come to the 360 after 5 or so months but why would it be $10 bucks less than a normal 360 game? That does not make any sense.
