Eurogamer writes: "Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has told Eurogamer that he looks forward to a day when people stop asking him whether MGS4 is coming out on Xbox 360.

"I've been doing a lot of interviews and stage shows, and half the questions are like 'Will MGS4 be coming out on 360 or other formats?', and in the near future I hope they'll ask me about Metal Gear, about us, about our future projects, and will stop caring about the hardware," Kojima told Eurogamer in an interview published today.

Pressed on MGS4's exclusivity and the possibility of an Xbox 360 port, Kojima reiterated that the PS3 had been chosen because he believed that the series' success had been entwined with PlayStation's, and admitted that 'because MGS4 was optimised for the PS3 it is probably not possible."

All of those 360 owners that want MGS4 should just buy a PS3 and stop complaining.

It's never going to happen as others have stated.

This puts nothing to rest.

If he carries on giving non definitive answers, then he should expect the questions to continue.

To answer shortly, no! Fanbois will continue to dream until the next console is out. I don't quite understand it. Its not like PS3 fanboys are clamoring for a Halo3 port... well maybe because its a lame game and is the same as the other two, but still, come on!

From everything I've read about Japanese, it's rather rude to give a strong "no" answer.

But beyond that, "Probably not possible" = "I doubt it's possible, but no one's taken the time to look into it."

[QUOTE="Cross, post: 0]MGS going to xbox360, ya right, thats like FFXIII going... oh wait...[/quote]

ha ha. So true.
Nothing is safe this gen. Unless something is owned by Sony/Microsoft themselves.... a game being ported is always a possibility. It doesn't matter anyway. Ps3 owners can play it, if it goes to 360 they can play it too.... gamers everywhere win...

personally i dont care if it gets re-developed for 360. If games are built on PS3 hardware for PS3 so they fully utilise its capabilities they can try port onto nes for all i care!

who cares, xbox 360 has so many great exclusives, like Gears of War, Mass Effect, Bioshock, oh wait... I forgot the better versions of those games are always on the other platforms such as PC or PS3, lol.

LOL ^^

I am pretty sure he could, but 360 wont see a MGS4 port, They just wont. the MGS4 developers put so much effort and I mean a lot of effort into that, I am pretty darn sure they are sick to death working on MGS4. There is no way in heck they are going to port that over to tweak this and tweak that, I just don't see it happening. If anything, they will come out with a whole different game and make it multiplatform.

Free publicity for MGS4 and Ps3..

Everyone sees that PS3 has the games that the 360 crowd wants but aint getting it.. maybe = more sales?

That's correct... He's being typically Japanese. Unlike his good friend Itagaki, who'd spit on your parents' graves as much look at you. Itagaki is not typically Japanese...

The Japanese "Maybe = no" thing and "delay = no" and other such formalities really do make communication with Japanese people very difficult for me.

[QUOTE="Wheezy85, post: 0]Lol MGS2 on PS2 was like 100 times better then this peice of crap. PLaying it in the game reminded me of how good the game was. THis game sucked. hahaha.[/quote]

I'm interested in your theories and will be subscribing to your newsletter.

People have to stop asking if its going to the 360. He has said like 5-6 times in public to everybody that it WILL NOT be going to 360. Seriously, it get really annoying.

And to the 360 fan boys, do we beg your developers and repetitively ask them if we can have your games? NO WE DON'T!!

I never understood why 360 fanboys believe they have all the exclusives. When every good "exclusive" they have is either on PC, coming to Ps3, or not even that good. A.k.a Halo 3. The only reason, and i mean the ONLY reason i bought another 360 is for Gears of War, and that's on PC.. but i don't have a good enough PC to run it nor do i care to. Simply put - Ps3 is where it's at for exclusives

lol, I was going to say the same thing...not to mention DMC4, GTAIII, etc.,etc...

I don't get the fanboy disease...I couln't care less who has what exclusive, AS LONG AS THERE'S COMPETITION it's good for all gamers.

We can definitively say that asking him repeatedly won't make it come any sooner.

Right you are. I don't care if they make a crappy port after coding it for the ps3. Hell, port it to the DS, I dont care.
The thing here is: Yes, they would make more money porting it to the 360, however, I think the deadline for profitibility has passed. Everyone really interested in the series moved to ps3 to play it by now. The profit from the port would be neglagable compared to the development costs at this point. It may have worked if they planned multi plat from the get go.
