Sometimes it really does feel like these companies execs live in their own little world where they don’t truly understand what they are saying.
Jack Tretton, my new best friend, has been talking to journalists about that rumour yesterday about the Xbox 360 possibly getting MGS4â€¦
Jack has reiterated that MGS4 will never get to the 360 but his reasons for saying this just don’t add up.
According to Jack the Xbox 360 can’t handle MGS4 thanks to the fact that it doesn’t have a Blu-Ray drive. Now that makes no sense at all.
All the Blu-Ray drive does is give the developers a lot more storage space, at the expense of a slower streaming speed.
So granted MGS4 won’t fit onto a DVD but neither will FFXIII and that didn’t stop that from jumping ship.
However I do agree with most of yesterdays comments in that the 360 doesn’t need MGS4 and I think Microsoft will only go for it to rub Sony’s nose in it. I would prefer them to use that money to create new IP’s to be honest.
