More ports Smilie

Did you post this on GAF ?

Let me guess Metal Gear with waggle?


Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he [Richard Ashcroft] promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clichť. They were the statement and the definition."

I wouldn't discount the possibility, but it would have to be severely cut down, perhaps to the point of becoming something else entirely.

Ports are not bad. Why shouldnt a game in developement be on all three platforms. I only have 2 problems
1 Rushed ports
2 worse than that is a port of most PS2 games (it has to be a really high calibre game and it needs to be ported well with tweaked graphics)
I still want established ip's on the wii and lets face it it will be some time before a company puts out two different games (NOT in the same manor as RE chronicles)
When did multi platforming become so frowned upon in nintendo forums and sites. Dont let ubisoft scar you for life.

Smilie i doubt it will ever happen maybe a new mgs game but not number 4 maybe we will get number 3Smilie

And besides the thought of metal gear on wii is amazing. A game I feel could benefit from what the wii controls can offer. The game would have to be cut down but the two PS2 games were pretty big. Shocked by the negative posts so far. Its one of those games that is guaranteed to ooze quality and substance yet there was a better reaction to carnival games. Built for the wii or not how many hours of 'joy' is that going to provide. Hope this rumour turns out to be true

Has anyone realised what this will mean in terms of the console wars. The PS3 has now only one major exclusive Final fantasy. I dont see it recouping. And with Xbox360 still dead in Japan. Wii looks like it will be number1 for some time (since its the only one selling loads in all three regions.)

Well I suppose "The Twin Snakes" came out on GC and Konami have been supporting the Wii fairly well so far. All sounds good. Hope this is true.

And when the hell did a AAA former exclusive going multi-platform ever get called a port?

Interesting to see what can be done. It's things like this that will begin to show what exactly the increased power of the 360 and PS3 actually offer in terms of gameplay.

I don't think FFXIII is PS3 exclusive anymore. It wasn't specified which other platforms it would be released on but I'm fairly sure they lost exclusivity. Anyone care to help out here?

Fingers crossed, but I'm doubtful. My guess is a spin-off game if anything.

Finally someone is talking sense. I agree with Dr_R. Its not exactly a port. Not even been released yet. So it wasnt originally intended for anything but the PS3 who cares.

A Cut Down MGS game, Don't think its gonna be MGS4, another Metal Gear perhaps.

wow you have joined the site over a year ago and only 76 posts Smilie

i dont think wii will get mgs4 coz konmai would have to start teh game from begining so it will work for the wii

Im not much of a poster. Guess it's a fake then.

WOW!!!.... but more importantly is that if this is true, its a huge hit to PS3 sales bottom line. First Devil May Cry and now this. Two huge once exclusive system sellers now going cross platform. Thats like Halo3 also going to PS3. Sony is in for a hell of a fight not fall to 3rd place this generation. As for the Wii... if its done real well (a scale down great gameplay experience) it will sell like hot games and welcome back snake we miss you here at Nintendo.

So, does that mean reports of a 360 version are also fake?

Whoa! when did it get said that MGS4 would go 360 too?!

OMG - I'm so GLAD! I just went Wii60 right now!! anyone got a link?!

**EDIT**

I meant I just got a 360 two weeks ago -- SO pumped!


*edit*
Nevermind! found it!

That would proper ruin MGS4. Perhaps a Wii-exclusive spin-off?

Phew thank god. I wouldn't mind seeing a boktai game on the wii, maby using the weather channel in some way.

It all depends on what FFXIII you are talking about. The current Square-Enix business model is to spread franchises overs as many platforms as possible. Kingdom Hearts one and two went to the PS2 but the GBA was given its own exclusive Kingdom Hearts game which was the prequel to Kingdom Hearts 2 and created a link between all three games. A Vincent game was released for the PS2 to expand the FFVII universe, FFXII is on the PS2 and the DS, Crystal Chronicles is having a Wii and a DS iteration.

Square-Enix have stated they will have in excess of five unique FFXIII titles across a range of platforms and at the moment the rumours of an Xbox360 port of FFXIII was based off of someone saying that Sony and Sqaure-Enix were still discussing the terms for exclusivity. This in itself does not imply that Square-Enix are looking to port the proper FFXIII to another console because as is quite common in business Square-Enix and Sony would be discussing the price for exclusivity.

Smilie Very doubtful about this, i doubt we will see MGS4 on Wii, like most of you have already pointed out we will probably see some kind of spin-off exclusive game!

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

Kojima wouldn't want his precious MGS4 running on such weak hardware. Smilie

A Metal Gear Acid port seems more probable. Smilie

Bah, the world would end if this happened.

I did mean the main game. After some investigating around the net it seems that FFXIII is still an exclusive to PS3, right you are again MGE.

Still, look at the massive names that the PS3 has lost:

GTA IV
Assassins Creed
Katamari - I think
Resi 5
Devil May Cry 4
Metal Gear Solid 4

Can anyone confirm this, I was wrong about Final Fantasy, so I could be wrong about these too.

I would actually like to see a spin off or a master edit of the three MGS games on Wii.

But MSG4? In your dreams, it was made from the ground up on the PS3, it is impossible.

Man this was the worst rumor with the best buzz of the week. Smilie
