Oh jesus, its NOT COMING TO THE X360. Kojima himself said it at E3, the game is exclusive to the PS3. Tretton also stated that its exclusive to the PS3.

Moore himself saying that its exclusive!

Magus, bottom line is that 360 almost definitely will get MGS4. The installed base of PS3 isn't big enough to make up for its devtime and wont be anytime soon. Konami could easily assign a team to port it to 360. It may be out later than the PS3 version, but odds are it will make it to 360 eventually just like MGS2 made it to XBOX1. Sony doesn't want people to know that yet, of course, because if people know for sure that MGS4 will be on 360 eventually, they might not spend $500 for a PS3 when their current 360 will play it - defeating the purpose of a time-based exclusive.

Considering how poorly the only Metal Gear to be released on the Xbox sold I really dout it. Especially when Japan and Europe are larger supporters of the series and the Playstation brand is much stronger there then the Xbox.

By your reasoning then almost every PS3 game should go to the X360 since the PS3 install base is so low. I mean I guess I can expect Final Fantasy XIII and Tekken to make its way over aswell.

Again, Kojima stated clearly that you will only be able to play MGS4 on the PS3.

It isn't just that it is a error, it is that they are taking pre-orders for it.

It better NOT be coming out for the 360, that's another reason not to bother buying a PS3.

No need to be selfish.

I only have a 360 because it had better games out when I bought it, and I could care less which of the two systems sells better. I just want to be able to play all the good games, and in this case that would mean having mgs4 on the 360. I just don't see why to care so much if it's another reason not to buy a ps3, get one if you like but why care what others buy so much.

Oh wait...

Umm..ps3 installed userbase is nowhere NEAR ps2? So yeah...that MGS3 comment is valid.:wonder:

Umm..I fail to see how that invalidates his statement. The PS3's installed userbase vs the PS2 has absolutely nothing to do with why MGS3 didn't come out on the XBox.

He was simply saying that just because MGS2 was released on the XBox, doesn't mean that MGS4 will be released on the 360...and as evidence offered the fact that MGS3 was never released on the XBox.

The decision to bring MGS4 to the 360 or not is influenced by one thing, and one thing alone: Money. To this end there are a few things we know:
-The PS3 userbase is pretty small.
-The 360 userbase in comparision is much larger.
-The ps2 userbase is huge, but it is unlikely MGS4 could be backported without loosing far too much content.
-The Wii userbase is growing rapidly, but falls into the same category as the ps2.
-The game development budget for any AAA title typically is huge.
-MGS4 is considered a AAA title.

What that leaves us with is the assumption that MGS4 cost quite a lot to produce.
So:
-If MGS4 sells enough copies on the PS3 then there is no need to port/release it for the 360.
-If MGS4 doesn't sell enough copies on the PS3, but Sony has paid for the exclusive then there is no need to port/release it for the 360.
-If MGS4 doesn't sell enough copies on the PS3, and Sony isn't interested in coughing up the cash to ensure MGS4 development makes a profit. You can bet your ass MGS4 will be ported to the 360 to recoup losses, no matter what any one else says.

IMO: I expect Sony opened their wallet to ensure that it is a exlusive and that development costs are covered. Console manufacturers that screw their publishers over, tend to end up with no/few publishers.
