Metal Gear Solid: Rising not exclusive to xbox 360

Posted in Video games with tags , , , , on June 1, 2009 by trevdog54

Microsoft debuted the first details on Metal Gear Solid Rising at their E3 press conference this morning, but there’s a reason Microsoft wasn’t bragging about this Raiden-starring adventure being an Xbox 360 exclusive — it isn’t.

“You know, we didn’t say that it was exclusive,” clarified Xbox executive and corporate VP John Schappert (he was the guy hosting most of the event) during an interview  immediately following the press conference.

“We said that the next Metal Gear will be coming [to Xbox 360],” he said.

“I couldn’t be more excited about him [Kojima] working on that [Metal Gear Solid Rising] and having that be part of our show,” said Schappert. “When I heard about that, I was pretty ecstatic and it was an honor to be able to be on stage with him and announcing his next Metal Gear, which will be on Xbox 360.”

Of course, Schappert wasn’t in a position to announce where else Metal Gear Solid Rising would be appearing, but could series creator Hideo Kojima be pleasing everyone by announcing this latest work at one conference, showing it at another? We’ll have to wait and find out tomorrow morning at Sony’s E3 conference.

And thus, the waiting game continues.

Next 'Metal Gear' To Involve Big Boss, Raiden?

The teases for the highly anticipated announcement from Kojima Productions regarding the next Metal Gear franchise continue this evening, with the countdown website revealing a scary lookin’ Big Boss.

Rumors on this series of tubes we call the Internets purport the latest issue of Famitsu, said to have the first details on the next Metal Gear, also (supposedly) contains our first look at the new Raiden. Well, that’s if it’s actually Raiden we’re seeing. It could be a robot clone! Who actually knows what’s going on (or cares).

Speculate away!
