Xbox Live Boss wants Metal Gear Solid 4 on 360
John Schappert, Microsoft Xbox Live Boss, says that he’d “love to see [Metal Gear Solid 4] on our machine.” Well looks like someone wasn’t listening to Kojima when he said to stop asking for an Xbox 360 version already.
More aimless dreaming in the full article.
Well looks like someone wasn’t listening to Kojima when he said to stop asking for one already. John Schappert, Microsoft Xbox Live Boss, says that he’d love to see Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots come out for the Xbox 360:
IÂ’m certainly in the fan club that would love to see Kojima-sanÂ’s masterpiece come our way. It would be wonderful to play Metal Gear Solid on the Xbox. It could become another of the many franchises that started their life on another console that are now coming our way.
Of course, there’s the obvious limit the Xbox 360 has with its DVD drive. Schappert seems to like daydreaming though:
I canÂ’t speak on behalf of Konami, but I can shed more light on the fact that we definitely have the power to run MGS4.
There are a lot of recent examples that are in true high-def on our platform and arenÂ’t on PS3. WeÂ’ve got an amazing amount of horsepower and graphics power.
While the Xbox 360 is a powerful machine, Konami will be hard pressed to try and squeeze in 50 GB worth of data into a DVD. Besides, even if Konami does agree on an Xbox 360 version and decides on a multiple-disc strategy for the game, how would Otacon be able to make his Blu-ray joke in the middle of the game?
