Just when you thought Snake’s sneaking days were finally over, a recent rumor heard from video game site ripten revealed that the Metal Gear Solid series may still have one final card left to play. According to its sources, they were able to spy evidence of the MGS series taking steps to infiltrate Microsoft‘s Xbox Live Arcade service. Find out more about this stealthy rumor in our full article.
With only a couple of days left before the release of the highly anticipated conclusion to the Metal Gear Solid series, it seems like a stealthy rumor was able to sneak past Konami‘s normally tight security. This latest tidbit comes from video gaming site ripten, which stated that Solid Snake may get its first ever appearance on the Xbox 360 very soon.
According to ripten’s sources, they were able to spy evidence of the MGS series taking steps to infiltrate Microsoft‘s Xbox Live Arcade service. To be more specific, word of the supposed transfer came from none other than PartnerNet, the developers-only alternate Xbox Live network used to beta test unreleased downloadable content for the next-gen console.
While it may seem highly unlikely that Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots can even fit on to a simple DVD format (much less the 350mb size limitation on XBLA), this wouldn’t be the first time the series has stepped outside of its PlayStation turf. There’s been no word which specific incarnation the MGS series may find itself on the Microsoft console, but the ripten writer Patrick Steen seemed rather confident about his sources.
Whether this latest tidbit in the rumor mill proves itself false or otherwise has yet to be seen. In any case, we’ll be sure to keep everyone posted on any new updates regarding the matter.
