Metal Gear Solid 4 coming soon to XBox 360

Postby dolphinius_rex on Wed Aug 01, 2007 3:10 pm

It looks like someone over at MS may have already leaked an early image of some of the possible packaging for Metal Gear Solid 4 will look like when it comes to the XBox 360.

As you can see, it's had to be split up onto multiple discs to make up for the difference in Capacity between Blu-Ray and DVD9.

I'm not familiar with MGS4, is this a joke?

If this game is on Blu-ray for the PS3, how many discs does it use and how many layers are present on each disc?

Yeah, this is a joke :wink:
Word is that it will be using a BD50 for the PS3 release (one of the first, along with some SquareEnix games). MS has been trying VERY hard to get it to be ported to the XBox 360, and Konami's U.S. branch seems interested, but how they'll port it seems to be the question. Aside from the capacity problem, there is also built in control functionality that only the 6-axis or the Wii-mote could accomplish, and MS has nothing in their consoles to be the equivilant. So controls at the very best would have to be redesigned.

looks like there is now a video of footage from the upcoming XBox 360 release. Looks pretty good! I'm amazed they were able to keep the PS3 level graphics for the most part:
