Rumor: MGS4 Comming to 360

Rumors of Metal Gear Solid 4 coming to Xbox 360 are nothing new. However today oddly enough on the 1st day of the new year Xbox Family brings this rumor back up yet again.

Today Xbox Family has reported that a Konami distribution representative has personally said that Metal Gear Solid 4 is coming to Xbox 360. And not only does the rep reveal that but also says that the Xbox version has been in development for quite some time and will be coming 12-14 months after the PS3 version.

Now I don't know about you but I refuse to believe this rumor until Konami themselves have a official press release regarding the subject. Kojima-san has stated many times that Metal Gear Solid 4 will remain a PS3 exclusive as have others involved in the project. Kojima-san has also stated that if a Xbox 360 version of the game was to be made it may suffer in quality as they have been designing the game for the PS3. Storage alone would be a issue as the game is on a Blu Ray disc. Thats not to say that the folks at Konami couldn't find a way to get MGS4 on the 360 as I'm sure they can. But a series famous for its quality might be better off remaining on the console it was designed for.

To anyone who has read this story I say take it with a very large grain of salt. Even though the article states multiple times that it is not a rumor in my eyes it is in fact just that. Like I said earlier I won't believe this until Konami themselves have a press release.

UPDATE: As I thought Konami has stepped forward and denied rumors that Metal Gear Solid 4 is coming to Xbox 360. Not only that they seemed baffled that this rumor got started. You can check out Konami's response here.
