I really hope this turns out to be true.
I was just about to post this.
Anyway PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Konami!!! It makes sense too, while Koijima said that he didnt want to put MGS on 360, Konami is his boss, and what they say goes. PS3 wont have a large install base by the end of 07 if the yeilds on the blu ray drives remain low.
This could be the final nail in the coffin for the PS3, and will allow me to get a 360 with no regrets! Common Konami! We wants it!!
I have no reason to get a 360, and I am so disgusted with Sony lately that I would not get a PS3 out of principle. Yet, I am a Metal Gear fan, so that leaves me in a tight spot.
I would easily get a 360 for this.
If this is true, the 360 will be mine. And it also makes perfect sense. PS3 doesn't seem like such a profitable console.
The only one that wasn't ported to the Xbox or GC was MGS3. So it wouldn't be that surprising if MGS4 appears on the 360.
I don’t know if I would call it a nail in the coffin, but it would be bad news for Sony.
I personally expect several more of announcements like this in the near future. Once again, the "Sony bungled it" opinion comes into play. I think Bandai/Namco said that most high end would have to sell 500,000 units to be profitable on a given game (varying by production budget of course).
There aren't even that many units available period, much less competing against other games released or going to be for sales.
With an installed base of over 5 million (not counting coming holiday sales) the 360 IS a major force, especially in the powerful North American markets
all i need now is for devil may cry to come to the 360.
Sounds good. As long as it isn't a rush job like MGS2: Substance for the original Xbox.
If they can swing the new tekken series, this might be the first playstation generation I've skipped unless there is something extremely impressive (like mgs4) on the ps3. Either that, or I'll definitely be waiting longer than I though to buy one. It's not that the ps3 is a bad lookign system or anything. I just don't look forward to spending more on a console than it cost me for my first car when the game I'm looking to buy the system to get will end up being on a system I already own.
If it does then I'm sold on the 360.
well, if i do get it for the 360 (first gotta get one), then i'll just wait for MGS4: Substance
How is that "multiple" when the second link is just citing the first?
If it's true, it's a major blow for the PS3.
Sony may fight for more time between the PS3 and 360 release, or exclusive content however.
Oof. That was about all the PS3 had going for it.
I LOVE YOU MICROSOFT!
I'd beg to differ.
Major Blow #1 - Price revealed at E3 puts dampers on expectations of many gamers.
Major Blow #2 - 360 gets simultaneous day and date release for GTA4
Major Blow #3 - Inability to release a competitive number of consoles at launch.
This is ignoring Minor Blows, such as the response to the boomerang controller, the loss of rumble due to a lawsuit, and too many PR gaffes to count.
I don't believe this is Final Blow. If I had to guess, I'd say Final Blow would be Final Fantasy XIII coming to the 360.
Because it was just some guys blog. Most of those announcements like that are fake. Joystick adds some credibility to it. Maybe I chose the wrong word.
Or Kingdom hearts III for the Wii
Kingdom hearts Wii
Joystiq didn't add any credibility to it, they just posted that "some guy's blog" said it. The blog entry itself has been all over the internet this weekend, and it's just pretty pathetic how much attention it's gotten. There is absolutely no evidence whatsoever to back up this rumor, just this guy's "secret inside sources." You nailed it yourself when you said "Most of those announcements like that are fake."
