This doesn't look like speculation or rumor... Looks like Konami said it :unsure:


"I don't expect a substantial impact... With $500, you can buy a personal computer," he said.
Although the latest title in Konami's leading action franchise Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is currently a PlayStation 3 exclusive, Kitaue indicated that the company may consider releasing it on other formats to help recoup development costs.
"Since Metal Gear was born on the PlayStation, we would like to keep it a PlayStation game. But we might have to take some steps," he said.

I thought they were great games, and liked to watch my brother play them, btu I could never really get into it when I tried.

MGS is overrated (just like Halo).

I also feel like MGS gets a little more credit than it's due. They're fun games, but people do a get a little extra crazy over it.

Mario Treatment - When games get a great score simply because the popular video game icon Mario (of Nintendo) is in the game.


Very similar to any Mario game, FF games get over hyped and over scored simply because they're FF games. I agree with you. Just like MGS, FF games are a ton of fun. But definitely over hyped and over rated.

You know MGS has a really great story line. I'm not into the stealthy type of gameplay.

But Mor is right. Most games get the Mario treatment.

But Marios are good. Other than Mario Sunshine. Mario 64 is a great game. Super Mario World, excellent. Super Mario Bros 3 is one of the best NES games.

Final Fantasy IX is an under rated game, imo. That game was really fun and fixed the summoning problems from VII to VIII.

It is more of my opinion that Final Fantasy VII is one of the most over rated games ever. It was neat and all

I like mgs games the second one is by far not near on of my favorites. When I read this I am hoping for a x360 port because it would give me a reason to hold off getting ps3.

I hope it ends up in on the xbox360. The MGS series is by far my favorite (Devil May Cry being second favorite). There's no reason for me to buy a PS3 if both of them arn't exclusive to Sony anymore.

Yea actually mgs is my top 5 games of all time no so much the gameplay but I love the story for some reason.

They're all overrated because none after 7 could live up to 7. If they could make them with the graphics they have now and make them as good as 6 and 7, then you'd probably have the greatest game ever created.

I think Last Remnant looks cool, but I'd love to have FFXIII and FFXIII-Versus on the 360.

CAN sony go much lower with the price considering its a Blu-Ray player as well? If they keep dropping the price they will end up way undervaluing the Blu Ray part of it. Should be interesting at any rate.

Onto the real topic, woot, would love to see MG on the 360!! Would be even better if they made Resistance and Lair 360 ports as well.
