Metal Gear Solid franchise coming to Xbox 360

Kojima just confirmed that the next major release will be called Metal Gear Solid Rising, and that development is currently underway for Xbox 360.

    Will Mexico between these 18 countries?

  • killdavid77

    WOW, now that i won’t need a PS3 for MGS anymore

  • ShaggyB

    so does PS3 get MGS 5 and we get MGS Rising…. or does PS3 get rising as well and we get MGS 5 when it comes out too?

    Because its huge if Xbox gets all future MGS titles…. but not if we dont

  • Chitwood7412

    That is great.

  • TH3Hammer

    It was almost a great announcement. Metal Gear comes to XBOX360… but it’s not MGS4.. and it’s Raiden. =/ I was pretty underwhelmed with Microsoft’s announcements this year.

  • Capt Moore

    Yeah, not that happy about Raiden, I didn’t like playing him in MGS 2 either. I was hoping for MGS 4 at least so I could continue Solid Snake’s story to the end.

    I hope at least they include a DVD telling what happened in MGS 4 if they will not release it for the Xbox 360.

    I don’t mind if MGS 5 is on the Ps 3 also, fine with me for those who bought that system for that game shouldn’t get abandoned as well.

    Hahaha awesome.
    Madden, Tekken, GTA, Final Fantasy, Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, Virtua Fighter..

    And now Metal Gear Solid!

    Omg, please stop it Microsoft, those poor Sony fanboys ahaha =’D

  • Viral Cyrix

    Thinks this is awesome wasnt this included in the exclusives area

  • ShaggyB

    Im sure Sony will continue to get MGS games… the question is will 360 get them as well or is Rising it for 360? Will Ps3 get MGS 5 and we get Rising 2? or will PS3 get MGS 5 and xbox get it as well?

    @ Viral Cyrix
    It was included in the Exclusive Area but I doubt it’s going to be exclusive.

    If I was a woman Larry I would marry you !
    Thank you so much !
    Thanks to Kojima-san !
    At last Konami understood that there are potentially 10 millions MGS5 to be sold on 360 !
    And if they’re not to greedy to spend a little money on correct servers (with a broadband >512kbps)perhaps we’ll have a good MGO-like on our beloved xbox !!!

    Good news for 360 owners. Looks to be a very different game from previous MGSs

    “Lightning Bolt Action”
    Don’t sound like a stealth game. Should be a nice change of pace.

    Doubtful that MGS4 will ever make it though.

    Hearing that there will be another MGS announcement as well. Big Boss-style

  • Rahul1309

    I do hope that they come up with MSG4 for the 360 too…

  • Codename 76

    I can just taste the tears of PS3 fanboys everywhere.

  • clarky456

    OMG HALO 3 ODST IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • XxLightkunxX


    I’ll be looking forward to seeing the rest of the MGS games coming to the 360 since Kojima himself said the franchise will be coming to the 360. Definitely am glad to see myself playing as Raiden since he went pretty much Gurren-Lagann-level EPIC in MGS4 with all the badassery he was showcasing in it.

    A video game that allows me to play as him when he’s all suped up and taking names is nothing short of awesome.

    I’m definitely one very happy MGS gamer right now.

  • yolarrydabomb

    I rather have MGS4

  • BeAkErOo

    MGS4 is one of the best games I have ever played and i never liked any other mgs games before it

    i hope this rising is good

  • DarkGin87

    wonder what all those people that said MGS on 360 will never happen are thinking right now…

    Microsoft announcement were huge i was amazed at the show

  • yolarrydabomb

    eh I wonder if they going to have online match’s?

  • zxcoolbird

    I can’t believe it halo odst and then halo reach man bungie is on a roll

  • w00dm4n

    do we only get the MGS games that star Raiden?

    better yet will these be like the “exclusive” version og MGS2 where xbox owners get the skateboarding level that uses the new tony hawk skate gamepad?


    IS this the game with the hour long cut scenes? and if so can you skip them?

  • Anonymous

    woooooooo sweet.

    Even sweeta Halo reach !!!!

    And Halo odst looks the nutz.

    Ps3 fans must be on a downer.

    If that motion cam is as good as it looks, nintendo might have a problem.

  • Nitramuse

    Hmmm….I’n thinking this will be a Devil May Cry clone….Metal Gear May Cry? (Best remix ever, btw)

  • K04 Passat

    Seriously, you guys posting about (most of you) could complain about ANYTHING. We are getting a new Metal Gear game on the Xbox 360. That should be great news.

    If we’re not getting MGS4 on the Xbox 360… Looks, guys, I LOVE my Xbox 360. I’m just throwing this out there, but MGS4 is worth buying a PS3 to play it. As far as single player mode is concerned, it’s the best game I’ve played out of this console generation.

    Kojima doesn’t let people down… Metal Gear Rising is going to be amazing, when it releases.

  • DarkTear81

    Mhh, the Game Title doesn’t show “Tactical Espionage Action” but Lightning Bolt Action. So with the appearence of Raiden in MGS4 it could be more of a Hack’n’Slay.

    Beside that I really wonder what the MS-FBs say now after they ranted over the MGS-Franchise when they didn’t get MGS4 *lol*

  • MeS FEAR

    i am so bad looking forward to the next MGS on XBOX 360…because of the high price of a ps3 i couldnt play MGS4…so now i can be happy to be able to play it on xbox 360

  • Sausage Villan

    awww man i was hoping for MGS4 …

  • N3WB13 R0N

    I want metal gear online on xbox 360!! That be sweet!!
