Rumor: Metal Gear Solid 4 to the Xbox 360 After All?

IGN is reporting :

According to a Tokyo Game Show report from Japanese investment research firm Morningstar, Metal Gear Solid 4 may find its way to the Xbox 360 after all. Morningstar published a general article covering multiplatform trends that features a quote from a Konami public relations representative that should fuel rumors for months to come. The rep is quoted as saying, regarding MGS4, “We’re actively looking into a release for the Xbox 360.” While this isn’t a confirmation of it coming, it does lend hope to those Xbox 360 owners who haven’t plunked down money on a PS3.

However, this little quote doesn’t clear the major hurdle Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima has listed for the title coming to Xbox 360. He has been quoted in several interviews saying a port was likely impossible due to the game being optimized for the PS3 hardware, specifically Blu-ray discs.

Of course, multi-disc games are no stranger to the Xbox 360 (see: Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, and so on), and the New Xbox Experience’s option to install games to the hard drive may allow a “HD Required” tag to be posted on the game - after all, Shivering Isles has that tag
