http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/919/919647p1.htmlOctober 14, 2008 - According to a Tokyo Game Show report from Japanese investment research firm Morningstar, Metal Gear Solid 4 may find its way to the Xbox 360 after all. Morningstar published a general article covering multiplatform trends that features a quote from a Konami public relations representative that should fuel rumors for months to come. The rep is quoted as saying, regarding MGS4, "We're actively looking into a release for the Xbox 360." While this isn't a confirmation of it coming, it does lend hope to those Xbox 360 owners who haven't plunked down money on a PS3.
However, this little quote doesn't clear the major hurdle Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima has listed for the title coming to Xbox 360. He has been quoted in several interviews saying a port was likely impossible due to the game being optimized for the PS3 hardware, specifically Blu-ray discs.
IGN has contacted Konami's US representatives for a comment and is awaiting a response. The original Morningstar report can be found here.
Now I'm still 95% sure this will not happen, and like it stated, it is not a confirmation or anything. I just want your thoughts on this. Is it just beating a dead horse, or is there substance to yet another rumor?

And I thought this was dead. MGS4 on the 360?
Perception is often deluded by envy.
This is a sad attempt to deviate attention from the momentum LBP is getting with all the reviews.
It has been debunked: http://www.n4g.com/ps3/NewsCom-215538.aspx?CT=1
Really sad, will these MGS4 rumors stop?

If it does happen, there could be some positives for the PS3 owners of the game out there. Achievements being mandatory means that a list would be prepared, so I'm sure Kojima would patch in PS3 trophy support with the same list.
I won't mind if this comes out on the 360, I've already played the game through once and enjoyed it, and I guess everyone who doesn't have a PS3 should get to experience the game too. (Please can the same thing happen to Fable II, God?)
I'm not sure how likely this is though. Hideo himself stated there was not going to be a port, and there are numerous things that would have to be pulled out of the game (Sunny's PS3 etc.) I guess we'll have to see. It's resurfaced again though, and this time with some proof (albeit not conclusive.)
Just bung the game on 10 disks then we can all install it to the hardrive with the new Dashboard coming in November
I think the game is useing the Full 50GB BR Disk, so it is going to be a massive instal weather we decide to install it or not, but for me i wont be getting the game eather way as you must have allready played the other games to know how the story goes or you just wont have a clue what is going on, hence why i not bother with the PS3 version when it first come out
I'm takiing it with a grain of salt, but when a Konami rep is quoted as saying something like this, out of context or whatever, it certianly isnt just made up.
There is a quote, and it's attributed to a Konami spokesperson.
More than likely it's a mis-quote.2play:Red Dead, GTA 4,Batman AA,Batman AC,Borderlands 2,

Was posted earlier, claimed to be debunked, and trashed.
it was a mistranslation, and has been debunked.
