Japanese report removes Konami 'looking into MGS4 on Xbox 360' quote

Earlier in the week Japanese investment research firm, Morningstar, released a published report that quoted an unnamed Konami representative as saying the company was "actively looking" to bring Metal Gear Solid 4 to Xbox 360 -- suspiciously, the quote in question has now disappeared.

GameCyte details that the Kabushiki business journal, which is owned by Morningstar, has changed the original article with new quotes from another Konami representative discussing completely different titles. Speaking to J-Cast News, an unnamed Kabushiki representative said that the article is not a correction but a 'second appearance' and admits to no breach of journalistic ethics.

John Schappert: 360 can run MGS4

Frankenstein's rumor just keeps on shambling. In the wake of a Konami representative saying that the company was "actively looking into" a 360 version of Metal Gear Solid 4, concerns about the 360's power have come back into play. Speaking to MCV, John Schappert, Microsoft's corporate vice president of Xbox Live, did his best to quell such thoughts saying, "I can't speak on behalf of Konami, but I can shed more light on the fact that we definitely have the power to run MGS4." He adds that there are several games running in "true high-def" on 360 and not on PS3.

Schappert also voices his personal desire to see MGS4 on 360 saying, "I'm certainly in the fan club that would love to see Kojima-san's masterpiece come our way," adding that it would be another example of a franchise that was previously exclusive to another console making its way to the Xbox 360. Was there any confirmation that the game is actually heading to 360? No. No there wasn't. Move along.

MGS4 360 rumor rears its eyepatch once more

Coming as proof that you just can't keep a good rumor down (just ask the 360 Blu-Ray rumor) IGN is reporting that the longstanding Xbox 360 Metal Gear Solid 4 rumor has surfaced once again. The news comes by way of a report from Morningstar, a Japanese investment research firm, which focused on multiplatform trends. In the report a Konami public relations representative, in regard to Metal Gear Solid 4, was quoted as saying, "We're actively looking into a release for the Xbox 360."

As IGN notes, a single quote hardly adds up to any assurance that MGS4 will see the light of day on 360. This is especially so given that series creator Hideo Kojima has denied the rumor to the point of saying that he's tired of being asked about it in every interview. If somone doesn't make good on this rumor soon, we'll have to start one about MGS4 hitting the next Xbox.

Rumor: MGS4 co-producer working on Halo title

Here's a juicy Halo rumor for you. Word on the collective streets is that former Kojima Productions employee and Metal Gears Solid 4 co-producer Ryan Payton is currently working on the mysterious Peter Jackson Halo Project.

Supposedly, Payton has been given a "creative director" title on the "Halo: Chronicles" project which is a title that's way too vague for us to speculate his specific role. That is, if this rumor isn't made entirely out of lies. Our Joystiq mother ship has contacted Ryan Payton for comment, so let's wait and see what kind of answers we get.

Bad Company makes fun of Solid Snake

Whether or not you own a PS3, there's a pretty good chance you caught wind of the Metal Gear Solid 4 release last week. There's also a pretty good chance that you are at least familiar with the series. Perhaps you even know that Solid Snake, protagonist of the series, has a habit of hiding in barrels and boxes. There's one thing we know for sure though, and that is that Battlefield: Bad Company developer DICE definitely knows about the series. In a new video the soldiers of Bad Company poke fun at the longstanding Metal Gear convention. In short, it's pretty damned funny. Find the video after the break.

MGS4 takes a jab at non-HD disc formats

This is a momentous week for Playstation 3 owners. You see, Metal Gear Solid 4 comes out this week (perhaps you've heard). Metal Gear Solid 4 essentially is the game that will make the console. Apparently it's not enough just to make a good game, though. It appears that MGS4's creators feel the need to extol the benefits of the PS3 as you play. Alternately, one could argue that the game denigrates certain other consoles. Now, we're not trying to incite any flame wars here (though that's basically inevitable), and we know the video has tongue planted firmly in cheek, but it also smells ever so slightly of "inferiority complex." See the evidence after the break (note: MGS4 fans looking to avoid any spoilers should not watch). And remember kids, we're just the messengers.

Altair's true identity revealed

Hot off the heels of all the important news that is in no way influenced by the fact it's April Fools' Day is the announcement of Altair's latest adventure. Ubisoft producer Jade Raymond introduces a new type of assassin in this video which is verified to be AFS (April Fools' Safe).

In all seriousness, Ubisoft and Konami have teamed up for the ultimate gaming mash-up putting Altair, of Assassin's Creed, in the shoes of Solid Snake's (Metal Gear Solid 4) shoes as he battled through a futuristic battlefield.

Konami emphatically denies latest MGS4 rumor

In what we believe to be record time, the latest Xbox 360 Metal Gear Solid 4 rumor has been debunked and called total bologna by none other than Konami's PR themselves. Who would have thought?

After hearing about XboxFamily confirming with a Konami rep that MGS4 was indeed headed to the 360, The Game Reviews contacted their Konami PR guy and he emphatically denied the rumor. Mr. Konami rep went on to say that "for the record, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is a PlayStation 3 exclusive and there are no plans to develop an Xbox 360 version of the game." Ouch. A bit harsh. So, that should be the end of all Xbox 360 MGS4 rumors forever and ever, right? That is unless Konami is hiding something and doesn't want their big 360 announcement spoiled so they deny it only because they know MGS4 is Xbox 360 bound! Ha! Taking a denial of a rumor and turning it into a rumor ... we're pure genius.

Rumor: MGS4 360 bound 12-14 months after PS3 release

It wouldn't be the New Year without some juicy rumor talk and today it's all about the Metal Gear Solid 4. According to XboxFamily, they claim to have spoken with a Konami distribution rep who confirmed that MGS4 has been in development on the 360 since early 2007 and that it will release 12-14 months after the PS3 version. XboxFamily is pretty confident in the credibility of their Konami insider, but you can color us unimpressed. To us it's just more MGS4 coming to the Xbox 360 talk, another rumor we can add to the ever increasing list we already have and all we want is Konami to speak up. We give it another six weeks until the next MGS4 rumor surfaces.
