E3 2009: Metal Gear Solid coming to the Xbox 360

50 second read


I guess this is the end of my long running rumour mongering about Metal Gear Solid coming to the Xbox 360, feels a bit like an anti-climax really because it’s not a real Metal Gear Solid or it’s not the 5th in the series that we were expecting.

Unfortunately we apparently have no Solid Snake in the game but we do have Raiden and I guess he’s cool enough but I think he is going to struggle when put up alongside Alan Wake, Splinter Cell: Conviction, the Natal Project, Assassin’s Creed 2 and all the other titles we knew of beforehand.

Hopefully after the E3 dust settles we will receive some more information about this title but until then check out the reveal video below.

I for one welcome our future robotic overlords

    Well, to be fair, i don’t think porting Metal Gear Solid 4 over to the Xbox 360 would work (i aint a fanboy, i got both the Xbox360 and a PS3, and i play more on the Xbox), cause as i understand it, MGS4 runs on a double layer blueray disc, and in disc terms, that’s approximately 7 Duel Layer DVD’s for one game… eish…

  • RSA-Ace

    i think MGS:R will be a completely different genre to the normal ones. less stealth and more action.

  • spl0it

    Not really, PS3 does not use any image compression and has duplicate information on the disc to speed up loading times on the slow blu-ray drive.

  • easy

    even so, if you manage to discard a 3rd of the redundancy, you still looking at a multiple disc’s.
    maybe not such a bad thing

    NAh dude your forgetting that MGS was never even compressed aswell… 5 disc i recon… MAX

  • WitWolfyZA

    Im sensing a new Devil may cry thats what it is

  • WitWolfyZA

    I wonder if this game will even be as big as MGS 4 was… I kinda feel ripped off.. Yeah we got metal gear… But not the one we’ve been nagging for… MS probably thought its an old game now and no one will buy it anyways

  • Ladunia

    Hack and slash.

  • easy

    does anyone know if this is an exclusive title?

  • WitWolfyZA

    Nope i read on another site saying its going to PS3 aswell…. One has to wonder if the PS3 are getting 2 titles.. Seeing that the other image was Big Boss… Im hoping its a PSP title

  • Looks like it has now been confirmed as exclusive by the developers. Typing on my phone now, so I can’t post a link unfortunately.

  • WitWolfyZA

    Thanks for the update Nick…. Timed exclusive??

  • Dark

    Sam will win anyways 🙂

  • Conviction looks wicked 🙂

  • darthdad

    According to Famitsu it is not exclusive.
    Which is great for all gamers!

  • Yeah the mass confusion may be over.. it’s apparently appearing on both the 360 and PS3 simultaneously

  • Its definately a multi plat release

  • WitWolfyZA

    I wonder if MS only bought “MGS:Rising” or are they entitled to have All the MGS games now? Future Xbox Market place releases ???
