    I don't know how reliable this site news is, okay, so don't shoot the messenger...
    but I do recall a lot of guys in the Devil May Cry 4 thread hoping that MGS 4 would also go multiplatform..

    Kojima pretty much denies that possibility...

    They also had a news thread about Sony possibly phazing out the 20 GB PS3... geniuses these guys are... pure geniuses.. especially when Microsoft counters your price cut with one of their own...

    What price cut?

    And does anyone even give a crap about the 20gb PS3?

    If MGS4 doesn't make the 360, i wouldn't be surprised if an MGS title of some sorts is made for the WII and 360.... and if it does, Sony are probably going to fight to keep it exclusive as long as possible.

    Seriously. Exclusives don't mean jack anymore. I recall RE4 being GC exclusive. I will be extremely surprised if the game doesn't come out for the 360.

    He does say that the decision lies in the hands of the producer, so nothing is final. Besides, using his analogy, don't movies in the theater eventually end up on DVD?

    I really don'ty buy his argument, at least not with PS3 and 360. I know the PS3 is more powerful by a small margin, but I can't imagine anything on one that could not be made to work on the other.

    Of course it will come out for the 360. Big companies have no moral standards when money like that will be involved.

    mostly stuff I've picked up from jumping between 1Up.com, Gamespot, IGN, Game Revolution... you know... rumors...

    And as far as exclusives, I feel the only people that should make exclusives, are the companies who made the consoles... Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo. One thing that does concern me, however, is the idea that with multiplatform games, no one's gonna push the systems to their fullest...

    I heard a rumor that Sony will be making an add on drive for the PS3 that plays 360 games, and allows you to log into Xbox live as well.

    I can't reveal my source though.

    Its been that way since forever.
    Look at the last generation. The Xbox clearly had superior hardware yet there were very few multiplatform games that took advantage of anything that it could do that the PS2 could not.

    And, I'm not even talking about squeezing the processor. Even basic features were ignored. For instance every single Xbox had a hard drive and the ability to rip your own music and make custom soundtracks. However most games that appeared on multiple platforms did not support this simple feature.

    They program for the middle of the road and port as needed.

    It's enough to make you cry, isn't it? and after all that horseshit we were fed about the "future" of gaming...

    As always, we'll have to wait until the end of the console's life cycle to see anything really impressive...
