New “Metal Gear” coming to the Xbox 360

Okay so here is how I imagine it went down…

Microsoft headed on over to Japan to have a chat with Solid Snake, of Metal Gear fame, and attempted to bribe him to come on over to their console of choice.

Snake was very excited about this opportunity but did ask for a large sign on fee. The Microsoft reps were over the moon and this is where all the Internet rumours started up.

However when big Bill found out how much the reps had promised Snake he flipped his proverbial lid and kindly pointed out that for that amount of money they could write there own game…

And so a game was born, the point of this entire story? Who knows…. However this new game sounds interesting and all new IP’s are things to celebrate.

According to the Internet rumours the Microsoft reps have had some game time with the new title and are very impressed, it has supposedly the best graphics of any console game out at the moment and has already pushed the 360 passed its previously presumed  limit.

Don’t expect this game to be released in 2008 however but we should at least start hearing more about it around the middle of the year… Round about when the perpetually delayed Metal Gear Solid 4 makes its appearance.

Any bets on this new IP beating MGS to retail?

Rumor 101: Microsoft’s “Metal Gear” for the Xbox 360

[Anyone else enjoy the irony of an American company copying and possibly improving on something invented in Japan?]

    ya… but it all seems very elaborate… I wouldn’t be taken money out yet for the gay… It also seems FAR to convenient to be the truth… I mean read the whole story, at the end they say, It pushes the limits beyond what people thought… plz…

    But hey, who knows, maybe the xbox will just own the ps3 and be the best console ever made

    LoL, so it’s a game no-one has heard of or seen yet it’s “the best graphics of any console game” and all at the same time being better than game that has been doing it’s thing for over 10yrs. Stretch a bit ?

    Never doubt Scotty’s loyalties 😉

    Seriously though I find the whole post a bit fishy especially the bit Scotty highlights, that’s fanboing of note.

    The principle sounds quite reasonable, it’s quite similar to what happened last gen when there were “Two Snakes” and some other version for the Cube and Xbox 1.

    It seems logical as Konami then gets appease everyone. PS gets “MGS4” exclusive, 360 get MGS4+ and can boast extra content eve nthough it’s a tad late. Like a mix of VF5 and GTA4.

    No scotty777, never doubt the power of marketing. Sony and MS are the kings of marketing. This is what someone once told me, “what the whole world knows about marketing, the Americans have already forgotten”.

    BTW did anyone read the comments on the referenced article? Here is a short summary of the hundreds of comments:
    Xbox sucks!
    PS3 sucks!
    You suck!!!

    Man, fanbois of both these consoles are a pain in the rear end.
