Locked: MGS 4 should be on the XBox 360

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - MGS 4 should be on the XBox 360

Game developers care little for console loyalty. All they care about is making money these days. PC loyal Valve even ported Half-Life games to console. At one time we would think Valve would never port Half-Life to consoles.

Lol. Starcraft can start a petition with Konami, like the Wii fans did with Resident evil 5. 50 000 Wii/ nintendo supporters signed the Resident Evil 5 petition but it fell on death ears.
Except Starcraft doesn't like stealth games.........

 



starcraft - Playing Games = FUN, Talking about Games = SERIOUS

I want Gears of War and Mass effect on PS3

Yeah ... two MS published games will appear on the PS3. Riyyyyyght. 


madskillz, don't be blind... MS may have published them, but they don't own the IP. EA owns M.E. and Epic Games owns (I think) Gears of War just like MS owns the Halo IP.


MS has an exclusive deal for Gears 1 and 2, so those will never go to the PS3. After that however, it's open game. Gears 3 will be multi-plat I am sure.

M.E. is less known about. A lot of deals were made on that one that are not public knowledge, so who knows. My guess is it will never happen. if M.E. has a sequel, it could be multi-plat (probably will be unless someone forks over a lot of cash)



Is this a joke? MGS4 filled up a blu ray, it would be more than 4 discs. 360 couldnt handle it in more ways than that.Is this a fanboy thread?

Developers care about two things. Making money, and making something that has never been done before.

if your a software developer, and want to make a great living, the last place you go is into the gaming industry. The medical field, or consulting work will make you a lot more. You do it because you are passionate about what you do.

The reason games are made on the PS3 and 360, and not the more profitable Wii, is because the power of the systems allows developers to make something new and exiting.

If it was all about money, all games going forward would be Wii games.

It's not all about the money.

 Yes, it's a joke.

As for the multiple disk thing, most of the space used was for audio. If you compressed the hell out of it, you could knock it down to a few disks, I am sure.

Plus, MGS is a linear style game, so breaking it up on multiple disks would not be that big of a deal.

With that being said, MGS4 will probably never see the 360. 



I couldn't care less. I'd probably prefer it on the PS3, i'm used to the Sony control anyway. :D

Did you just compare GTA 4 sales to potential MGS 4? MGS4 would obviously sell more on PS3 then 360.

I agree, reasons:

1. MGS has always been on PS consoles (exept the crap original NES)

2. It would be on 4-5+ disks

3. MGS is huge in japan and PS3 (2.10 mil) is way better off than 360 (0.61 mil) in Japan

4. 360 has RRoD (lol had to mention it)



LOL to everyone in this thread. PNWED!!!!!!!

You don't actually have to like the game though Starcraft, if I remember correctly Onimusha started an RE5 to Wii petition without being a fan of the series or having any desire to play the game even if it came to Wii. It's just all about the console wars baby.
