Xbox iPhone to welcome Metal Gear Solid
Konami does Jesus phone gaming
We’ve got some bad news for Xbox gamers, but some good news for iPhone users. It turns out that Metal Gear Solid isn’t coming to the Microsoft console any time soon – despite suggestive messaging – and is instead set to launch on the Jesus phone.
Metal Gear Solid Touch is coming to the iPhone and iPod Touch
The game’s publisher, Konami, has now updated its teaser page - which a few weeks ago made fans think that the PlayStation 3 exclusive would appear on the Xbox 360 - with the strap line “Metal Gear Solid Touch”.
The presence of the word 'Touch' suggests that the game will only appear on the iPod Touch. However, clicking the available link takes you through to a Konami games download site where titles for both the Touch and the iPhone are already available.
A more definite promise that MGS Touch will appear on the Apple handset comes in the form of two pictures showing the game running on the talker, rather than the Touch.
Gamers use the screen to direct their kills
According to several online sources, the game will be based on MGS 4, but it won’t be an exact replica.
It’ll have eight levels initially, with more to follow later on. Gamers will earn points in the game that can be used to unlock MGS images and wallpapers.
A launch date or price hasn’t been confirmed yet.
It's out on N-Gage today, too. Are you going to report that? Oh no, anything that doesn't mention the iPhone isn't newsworthy, is it?
Is this media obsession just an interesting psychological effect or do Apple pay for all this publicity?
Oh how we laughed...
At all the Xbox fanboys and their wishful thinking. Nobody had the heart to break the news to them, that the symbol they decided must mean that MGS4 was coming to their favorite white turd of a chavbox360, is also present on 99% of all consumer electronics (including the PS3, PSP and iPhone).
What's even funnier, is now that it's not coming again, their tune has changed to "we didn't want it anyway"...
Paris, because even she is not that thick, and even she knows like IGN does, that the PS3 had better games in 2008, and less crap than all the other consoles. - http://uk.ps3.ign.com/articles/939/939461p2.htmlhttp:cles/939/939461p2.html
Re: Anonymous Coward
Why would i want to play a game on an Iphone when ive played it in all its glory on a Ps3?
Last time i checked Ps3 was a hell more powerful than an a Iphone so im sure i got the best experience possible.
Reports claimed that they had trouble putting it onto a single blu ray disk which is 50GB..Further research shows it was a min of around 33GB with a 4.6GB install to disc. The Blu Ray image size is 46.6GB.
Xbox uses the DVD system..4.7GB discs..you would need like 7 discs to get the game going!..have you seen how long the cutscenes are!...Also the "time to change disc" cutscene on the game which mentions that you are using a Ps3 system would have to be either taken out or revamped..which would riun the novelty.
