From gaming site "Destructoid":

http://www.destructoid.com/mgs4-is-coming-to-the-xbox-360-updated-for-internet-mattlockery--31775.phtml

Just like Grand Theft Auto 4, Virtua Fighter 5, Assassin's Creed, and Devil May Cry 4, it looks like another former PS3 exclusive may be making its way to 360!

This individual has in the past leaked detailed info about the 360 Elite, Halo 3 public Beta, and other MS-related stuff as he claims to have access to an MS insider. He states that MGS4 will be released to 360 in 2008, 1 year after its release on PS3; apparently Konami/Sony have a 1 year exclusivity contract on PS3, then MGS4 goes multiplatform. Microsoft is apparently wheeling an dealing in attempt to reduce this to 6 months or shorter, but 1 year after PS3 release & 2008 look like the most likely scenario at this point in time. He states this has been confirmed by his MS source.

EDIT: It looks like Sony's lawyers forced him to take down his info! Luckily if you know how to rhyme you can still read it :)

Except isn't MGS4 scheduled for March 08 now? So one year later would be March 09...

Thanks Amuro but that doesn't state that MGS4 is DEFINITELY coming in March 08... more like sometime before March 08. So if MGS4 and FFVIII are 08 titles then what major exclusives are on track for 07 on the PS3?

Yeah, but gamestop just moved their ETA from November 2007 to 3/1/2008.

Ummm...did you not see Sony's Gamers Day?

Lair, Uncharted, R&C, Folklore, Heavenly Sword and Warhawk are scheduled for 2007.

I can tell you for a fact that Warhawk will not disappoint. That game is very addictive and fun.

MGS for anything other than the playstation? What is the world coming to? I'm going to treat this as a rumour until it is offically announced. I've mentioned a number of times the ps3 is having issues with market penetration, and developers for ps3 games must have a hit to make money. These days with high development costs, even a hit sometimes isn't enough to break even when your market is still comparatively small.

You know MGS2 was actually eventually ported to xbox and gamecube had a MGS(snake eater i think?). MGS2 was even on pc at one point. All that matters is if ps3 gets the game a full year ahead.

Yeah MGS2 Substance was on the Xbox and sold like crap (and ran like crap at certain parts to boot). The one on Gamecube was Metal Gear Solid : The Twin Snakes, which was a remake of the original and while I thought it was good, many hated it because they changed a few things from the original.

(just like 360 ports tend to run like crap on the PS3).

Nonsense, tEH cELL can emulate an X360 on the fly, realtime, with no programming.

Just goes to show you how many MGS games I've played: 0
Ranks up there with all the final fantasy games I've played: 1 (the 360 online beta).

Boy have I been depraved.

I believe sony's first exclusive ever was a 32 bit MK3, and it was a 6 month exclusive.

Damn, that was an impressive arcade-perfect translation back in 1995. I'll never forget it as long as I live.

The x360 isn't at an advantage when it comes to year-old games, b/c there's no way in hell they'll have extra content due to the fact that it's going from a BD-ROM to a DVD-ROM. Along with the fact the graphics won't be as good, it really adds up to a major advantage for the PS3.

People prefer 1 year old masterpieces to be superior, if they've had to wait a year.

Don't you just find, that in the gaming industry, people refer to each other as being the most important people in the world?
