    Rumor: MGS4 in Development for 360, 12-14m after PS3

    No, the rep will not be named, but this is pretty concrete. Speaking to a Konami rep at an undisclosed distribution meeting, I was told, after a lot of nagging, that yes indeed MGS was in development for the 360. The rep stated that Metal Gear Solid will be released for the Xbox 360 between 12 to 14 months after the PS3 version hits shelves. This is not a rumor.

    I contacted Microsoft's own John Porcaro via email shortly after I spoke to the Konami rep to see if I could get anything from Microsoft's public relations team. Below is the response I received. Needless to say it's the most I've ever gotten out of MS PR team member.

    "Thanks for the heads up, [name removed]. For anything that resembles any shift in strategy, or product announcement, or even news of something happening with a third party, we're always going to stick with "we haven't announced anything about " Every day we see rumors, most false, but some true, and we can't confirm/deny everything out there for any number of reasons.

    I appreciate the note. I certainly will share everything I can, and I'll often rattle enough cages to get to an acceptable answer. In this case, there's really nothing we can say other than the obligatory "no comment.""

    I wonder how this will port over to 360. This is one of the first games that has been designed for the ps3 from the ground up. THe ps3 when actually programmed for is way more powerful than the 360. I would imagine it would have to be drastically diff on the 360, especially considering that the sixaxsis controller is actually being used in the ps3 version.

    Thanks for the info, i have been contemplating picking a ps3 up primarily for this game...

    Kojima Productions has stated many times that they're developing the game strictly for the PS3.

    Konami has stated many times that, due to rising game development costs, AAA titles like MGS need to be released on multiple platforms in order to maximize profits (if any).

    It's still a rumor, but I'd be surprised if it wasn't ported within a year or two.

    well,

    Konami's PR Denies MGS4 for Xbox360

    In a rush to get the word out, it seems that those who broke the story talked to everyone except Konami, who made this statement "For the record, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is a PlayStation 3 exclusive and there are no plans to develop an Xbox 360 version of the game."
