Metal Gear Solid 4: PS3 exclusive, like it always was

At Sony's conference, a lot of games were spotlighted. We mean a lot. While we'd love to go over the 15 first party exclusives, you all know them already, we're sure. So, we're going to move along and debunk the most annoying rumor we've had to put up with for the past year. Metal Gear Solid 4 was announced as a PlayStation 3 exclusive during the conference, met with a loving nod by our favorite Hideo Kojima (we know about twenty, but this one is our favorite). Hopefully this dispels rumors completely. Set for an early 2008 simultaneous worldwide release, MGS4 has come along nicely and has a new trailer up on the PS Store, as you may know. Well, get ready to hear all the "timed exclusive" rumors now, which we're a little more ready to agree to. But not happy about.

2. And how! I am so pysched to be a PS3 owner. For a while I was afraid I was going to be left a dry with a fancy Blu-ray player, but now things are truly looking up.

4. Nick just saw you on G4 .. you need to work on that belly ok .. but serious .. you should have held this post until after the konami junket .. my head would explode if this is not true but a nod from a non engrish speaking kojima really doesnt mean anything .. trenton could could have been laying on the political pressure by repeating it so much .. politics in gaming? what?

5. @ WhackMushroom -- saw me on G4? I didn't know they were filming in my apartment =P In any case, trust me, this seems to be for real. I'm not ruling out a timed exclusive, but it's definitely exclusive until April 2008.

Posted at 7:19PM on Jul 11th 2007 by qwerter

8. Well, if I had a 360 - I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for this one... =P

(I don't actually think this, but this is in place for you to laugh at, since no real xbox fanboys will dare show their face here)

10. Xbox fanboy just got a invite to a Konami's Press Briefing, saying that they will get news of something they didn't expect... If its MGS4, Konami just lied to alot of people...

Maybe a new Silent hill? Wait WTF... why is the 360 getting another exclusive??!?!??!?!?!??!

Posted at 7:34PM on Jul 11th 2007 by Jldowning

11. you see 10.'s comment Pot Belly Nick? Politics .. if konami pulls a fast one today we will believe they lied ;)

Posted at 7:56PM on Jul 11th 2007 by WhackMushroom

12. 11. while you do that we will be kicking major ass in killzone 2 bitch. unnnnhhhh i love e3 hostility!

Posted at 7:57PM on Jul 11th 2007 by WhackMushroom

13. I still dont see why people are upset about timed exclusives. Developers get to lead on their favorite platform, and consumers get to game on theirs. a win-win situtation if you ask me. I dont think the fanboys on either side were upset that RainbowSix, Oblivion, or VF5 were timed exclusives, so why is solid snake so different?

Posted at 8:30PM on Jul 11th 2007 by Bangbang...

14. Could be, I felt at the time that he said it 4 times to debunk the prior rumor. However I'm of the thought its Silent Hill 5. I wounder if it will be exclusive or not, and is it just microsoft peeps that got invited? If so its either exclusive, or the 360 is the lead platform. Which isn't a bad thing, but sucks to have ps3 stuck with another half port.

Either or, any new game is good news.

15. I just hope the 50 mil that M$ spent for exclusive content for GTA IV is worth it because Sony is finally stepping their game up in a major way. If M$ was smarter they would release Halo 3 for the holidays instead of September by thanksgiving H# wont have any more steam and then what will M$ do????

16. Xbox 360 fans go home!

Posted at 9:09PM on Jul 11th 2007 by Thomas

17. ok everyone breathe easy .. konami just wrapped up .. there is no huge surprise .. there is a god.

Posted at 9:15PM on Jul 11th 2007 by WhackMushroom

18. I am a proud 360 owner (as well as a PS2, gamecube, Xbox, PSP, dreamcast,etc...) No PS3 yet. I actually hope this stays a PS3 exclusive. I like the game. I will buy a PS3 when it has at least 4 exclusive titles I want to play. With killzone2, MGS4, Lair, and Heavenly sword, that should do it. Fanboy does not equal dickhead, but from the way some fanboys act on both sides you'd never know it. So from a 360 fanboy to PS3 fanboys, congrats on a good E3, and look forward to killing some of you online in Killzone 2...Peace

19. again, konami just cant let the rumor die, they are as responsible for the rumors as the fanboys.

they refuse to just 100 percent debunk a 360 version of MGS4, whether that be because its allready in the works, or they dont want to burn any bridges, who knows.

"no plans at this time" is definately not "Bitch this game aint never going to xbox"

Posted at 9:43PM on Jul 11th 2007 by napalmfuzz

20. I'm so sick of hearing about MGS4 on xbox 360... damn they got fatal inertia (the racing game) can't they just be happy with that..
