    Kojima made it very clear from day 1 that the Xbox 360 could not handle the MGS4 engine. When it was announced at E3 that the MGS franchise would be coming to the Microsoft platform I wondered if Kojima had made progress in making the MGS4 engine compatible with the Xbox 360, but that appears to be untrue. During the latest Kojima podcast, Sean Eyestone stated that Kojima has reworked the… Read More

  • MGS 4 in bargain bins already?

    We’ll start the day off with a video game story, since summers in the tech industry are slower than Biggs’ metabolism. Metal Gear Solid 4, in Japanese bargain bins already?

  • MGS4: 90-minute cutscenes ‘grossly exaggerated’

    The longtime whispers of MGS4 coming out on the 360 have been smushed by a Konami rep, who says that it is indeed a PS3 exclusive and there are no plans to develop a 360 version.

Thus the rumors were born and propagated — perhaps… Read More
