Why (I don't think) Metal Gear 4 will hit the Xbox 360

   0 do I put this? I constantly read about rumors going like "Metal Gear Solid 4 hitting Xbox 360 real soon", usually said by people who doesn't know jack about gaming (don't you dare to go bitchin' me about that! I just think that way, OK??).
Well...I don't believe, nor like, exclusives (the idea of buying a console only because such game is there, and only there, is just plain unfair, but once again, that's just me). But I have to say: if MGS 4 is to be released on Microsoft's machine...that'll probably happen in...about 5-7 years from now. You know how Xbox Originals work, right? I believe MGS 4 would go down the same path in the future...
Of course, Sony's gotta be paying a huge chunk of Drebin Points to keep Snake inside their black box, but money never held a game forever (unless that's a Mario game, but that may be going too far in this case). I just don't see it fitting the Xbox 360: it's waaay big, and by that, Big M's only got 2 choices: either compress the game to death (and kill its awesome quality) or leave it unpacked and distribute it in...hmmm...three dual layer DVD discs?
Judging by the time MGS 4's been out there, I think it's safe to say that a ***tload of gamers have already finished the game. Unless you're some hardcore freak (like me), what's the point on seeing Microsoft turning Snake's iPod into a Zune, or changing Otacon's MacBook into something generic, label-less?
What? Do you think Microsoft would allow those to stay? Sorry, no can do. I work directly with them: trust me, the wouldn't dare.

About Rafael Arbuluone of us since 5:42 PM on 10.17.2008

My name's Rafael Arbulu, and I'm MSN Games editor (the brazilian version, that is).

Don't like to talk about Rafael Arbulu that much, and pretty much everytime I do talk about Rafael Arbulu, I end up having a hard time.
I'm...errr....22 years old, live in Sao Paulo, Brazil, love RPG games, some sports games, a lot of action games...I just don't like soccer, basketball, football, and other "ball" me, they're all the same thing. Give me races, or anything similar, and we're gonna have some good gaming time.

Besides gaming, I (try to) watch a lot of anime, (try to) read a lot of manga...
I do love...collector's edition games, mangas, animes, action figures (related to anime and gaming, of course).

I'm kind of married...and...that's pretty much it. Any questions, just hit me up. When I get a chance to, I'll answer for sure.
