Kotaku.com has managed to corner Mr Kojima (Head Honcho for MGS) and had a really interesting interview with him.
“But like I said, MGS4 is aimed for the movie theatre, it’s aimed for the PS3, so the game’s scenario and graphics need this theatre-type hardware. It’s when a producer has a game that can work on the ‘DVD level’ that a game will go multiplatform”, he says. Sorry kids. Your “OMGMGS4360” banners will have to come out another day.
If you are a bit confused after that quote don’t feel bad, it’s because he went on this trip about the PS3 being a theatre and the Xbox being a DVD and the Wii being a TV channel… ? Anyway back to the point. He says there will not be a version of MGS4 on the Xbox 360.
He also mentioned that he wants rumble in his game but it’s a timing issue, which I guess means it depends on how long it takes Sony to add rumble as a feature physically.
I guess the Xbox guys are just going to have to console themselves with Halo 3 and GOW 2…
