Snake has been through a lot in the past few years. After infiltrating a nuclear weapons base in the Arctic, he risked it all on an oil rig outside New York, before making his way to the jungle where he had to live off dead tropical creatures and get beaten up by a girl. Time has caught up with the elusive ex-soldier, and in 'Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots' it's really starting to show.

Yes, Snake is back, and to say that he's been missed would be an understatement. Every time the game's creator Hideo Kojima comes up with a new story, it becomes a huge gaming talking point from internet games forums to offices and playgrounds. 'MGS4' has been no exception, with the main speculation revolving around rumours that this could be the Metal Gear where Snake finally runs out of luck, the inevitability of his death becoming more obvious than ever before.

Returning to the game are the likes of series favourites Ocelot, Hal and Otacon, and the slightly less popular Raiden. All have aged considerably since the last time we saw them who will prove vital to the story, and who is there for mere cameo effect? Only time will tell. One thing is certain - IF this is indeed the last 'Metal Gear' ever, you can have no doubt the Hideo and the team at Konami will have pulled out all the stops to deliver a story of pure quality, which will keep you on your toes from start to finish. We can also expect phenomenal graphics, beautiful cut scenes and top-drawer gameplay, making this the true 'Hollywood Game' that the series has always aspired to.

thought i'd just post it that HMV are taking pre-orders for MGS4 on the xbox 360!! it was a rumour but seeing as HMV have got it listed, the rumor may be true
#2
I'm actually going to vote this cold. I personally reckon that you will be able to find this cheaper than £39.99 when it is released.
#3
sorry Killabyte, im going to have to rate this cold (first ever time as well)..reason being is it will be cheaper new to release and it isnt out until 2008 on 360
#4
im pretty sure that this wont be a sell out, im also sure that by the time it comes out as already mentioned, it will be cheaper else where. the only good thing about this is MAYBE by going through quidco and then in a couple months, cancelling the pre order, quidco may have paid you the £4. however i would not count on it, quidco didnt pay me for things i did buy or use, including a whopping £50 owed from virgin casinos which managed to 'disapear' from my enquiries the other month, 2 years after i should have had the money.

only reason i posted it was because it was said it may not get released on the xbox 360, but i found it on HMV on 360 so thats why i posted, i didn't post it cause of the price....i know it will be cheaper elsewhere but this is the only place you can pre-order it from so far
#6
thanks for sharing!!
I can't believe it's coming on the 360!
That was my main reason for being indecisive about whether to get a ps3 or not :)
#7
As of right this moment, this game is NOT, I repeat, NOT being released on the XBOX 360.

Do not place an order for this game, HMV have got it very wrong.

What he said.

Great, I can preorder a game that's not going to happen!

Now, c'mon HMV make my day and let me preorder Super Mario Galaxy on 360 too!
#10
BOOOO. This should stay on the ps3:p
#11
but i want it to be on the 360 so badly :-(

The Sony spin doctor has spoken, cheers. Order canceled :thumbsup:
#13
Interesting!

Read that, gives me hope :)
#14
i believe that MSG4 will be released on the 360 but probably a few months later after it is released on the ps3, thats wot happened with MGS2 on the ps2 & xbox

PS - MODS close this thread please....its not going the way i wanted it to go
#15
Except it's dated May 30th. A lot can change in 2 months in the gaming world.
Take articles from the beginning of June stating that Rockstar deny delay rumors for GTA4, then look what happened!

It's been said that they might have to port due to financial issues and that they need to recoup development costs. For now, it is still a PS3 exclusive though. However it may only be a timed exclusive, so you could expect MGS4 on 360, maybe 6 months later.
#16
It will come to the 360 just like the previous Metal Gears :-D

Everyone get your order in, wooooo!

I think more people have pre ordered the 360 version than the PS3 ;-)
#17
360 will easy outsell the ps3 on this for sure!
#18
I got a mate who is employed as an international financial consultant (now there's a mouthful) for Sony and when I saw this thread I rang him without haste. Anyway, he confirmed that Konami (developers of the MGS series) have signed a contract with Sony such that MGS4 will premiere on the PS3 before it is released on the 360...just thought some1 might wanna know that!
#19
MGS2 was the only one to come out on another console, a lot later!

This from an article on EuroGamer in July.

Earlier this evening Sony America boss Jack Tretton reconfirmed Metal Gear Solid 4 as an exclusive PS3 title.
http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=79554

Like freeDUMB said however Konami has stated that they may have to consider other hardware to recoup costs.

This is a PS3 only game. Konami have said the Metal Gear universe may have to go cross platform, which means a different game(s) altogether. You're wasting your time pre-ordering this on 360.

MGS2 came to the Xbox1, but was a terrible port and unsurprisingly sold terribly (it was also a smaller user base) This is why it was never ported for MGS3

MGS1 came out on the GameCube

Therefore you are talking rot, as 2 of the 3 games have been ported so far :)

Sony also said the MGS2 was exclusive... To an extent it was as MGS2 came out on PC and XBOX with additonal content added


If they want to sell as many copies of MGS4 as they did with previous versions, they will unfortunatly have to release it on the 360 :-D

If they don't release it on the 360, then I am one of many people who bought all the previous versions on the PS1/PS2 and who will not be buying this next one.

I don't care I guess, it saves £30 until they release MGS4:Substance on the 360 in 2008 with all the usual extra stuff

That makes sense as they haven't started work on the 360 version yet.

I think another team is handling the port similar to what they done with MGS2. Hopefully they'll make the effort and get it right this time, as the 360 has the bigger user base
#24
no doubt will appear on 360 due to the masses :whistling:
#25
I hope this comes out on 360.
Don't fancy buying a PS3 to complete this game, just to return the ps3 a week or two later.

HMV Admits MGS4 360 Boo Boo

Hell, sometimes even we get confused about the current status of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots for the Xbox 360 (no status at all), so far be it for us to scold some simple data entry clerk at UK retail giant HMV for posting a pre-order listing for the game during a bout of what the company labels as over enthusiasm.
"In his enthusiasm, one of our online games team indicated that hmv.co.uk would start taking pre-orders for MGS4 on Xbox 360, when, in fact, he simply meant to ask customers if they wished to receive an alert in the event of this title one day coming out on this platform," admitted the retailer to GamesIndustry.biz

haha to 360 owners :) (sorry, had to throw that in)

But on a more serious note. don't try preordering this from HMV or any other retailer

MGS1 didn't come out on the Gamecube, a remake did, which didn't retain the same feel and totally overhauled everything.

Don't you remember the MGS:VR missions!!!

If mgs4 does end up on the 360 it will be toned down for sure. Fitting it all on dvd is gonna be hard.

Funny you should say that as I have here footage of MGS4 on XBOX360.

PS3 owners look away now

I love my XBOX360 but I'm no fanboy, I leave that to the 'geek-heids' among us. :p
#31
Voted very cold

First it aint coming to the 360

Second its not even coming out on Ps3 until second quarter of 2008

Third you will be able to get it for £35 closer to release date.

Yes I do, I guess they were released seperately on the PS1 (bundled in with the special editions on MGS2+3) I guess you can expect something like that to come with MGS4 when it is out on the XBOX 360 :thumbsup:

What has that got to do with anything? If it helps you justify spending an insane amount of money on a blueray player then good for you :?

I am happy to save £200, get a 360 instead and settle for maybe 2 DVD's if it comes to it :) I survived a MGS1 disc change.

This is HOTUKDEALS afterall, and £200 is an excellent saving for playing the 360 version instead (if you can wait a year that is)

Well it was near enough the same game so my point stands. It just came with better graphics and revised video sequences. MGS1 will never be beaten, because I have great memmories of it. I can't really play it now as I know the story and nothing will beat playing it those first 2 times!
