Metal Gear Solid 4 to come to 360 after all?
It seems the rumor mole strikes again, only this time with a bit more flame to the fire. The zombie-riffic Metal Gear Solid 4 rumor that won’t die is back again, and this time it’s from a fairly reputable source.
The “Mole”, unofficial rumor mascot of Official Xbox Magazine, reports that a “bankable source” has informed him that Metal Gear Solid 4 is going to ship on the Xbox 360. Supposedly, this will happen only months after it’s release on the PlayStation 3.
Apparently, the game is being worked on by a separate team that’s not being directed by Hideo Kojima, so he would still keep his promise of staying PS3 exclusive.
This rumor won’t die! Xbox owners have wanted Metal Gear since MGS2 released on the PS2, but when it released on the original Xbox, sales weren’t that high.
Now that there’s a chance that Metal Gear might release within months of the PS3 release, will those gamers who complain about it not coming to 360 actually buy it, or will it be another lukewarm reception?
What do you think?
