Hi,

I have been looking at buying a PS3 at £230. The main reason that I want it is basically for MGS4 as I have played all the others. The only thing is that I already own an xbox 360 and there are not many games that are exclusive to the PS3. Should I buy a PS3?

Also, is there any chance that there will be an xbox 360 version of MGS4?

MGS4 going to Xbox? Not a chance! I think having both console is great. I want to go for a 360 but I don't want to experience the RRoD.
#3 Posted by BrettB7400 (3401 posts) -
If you really want a ps3, then go buy one but dont ask people because its your decision. This is not the best place to ask because you are going to get biased opinions on the ps3 forum. Also, MGS4 will have 0% of going to the 360.

Sorry man MGS4 Is exclusive to the ps3.... Many good games are coming to the ps3 this year some of them you might now: killzone 2, little big planet, resistance 2 etc etc... if you are interested in any of them then i think you should buy the console... if you only want mgs4 then borrow a ps3 from a friend to rent it somewhere... but if u are a big mgs fan like me... then buying a ps3 only mgs4 is worth it :P hope it helped!

You can't make up your own mind on this??

I certainly don't want to tell you it's worth it only for you to decide a few months down the line that you don't think it's worth it and then you'll hate me and I'll feel bad.

I don't want that to happen. I suggest you figure this out on your own.

And no it's never ever going to be on the 360.

MGS4 to Xbox? It'll never happen. MGS series along with FF will always be soley for PS3. They're two of the biggest driving forces behind the PS3. Sony won't lose that.
#7 Posted by bjmmd5 (1 posts) -

I believe you woudl greatly enjoy a ps3..... though i haven't seen the blue ray potential harnessed yet but that will soon change i am sure. If you have the money then i say buy it.... you won't regret the buy..... and MGS4 is an ps3 exclusive .... it is ps's step forward in the battle of the consoles for dominance. but have a nice day send me a message if you disagree with anything i've said.

That's a myth made for fanboys, by fanboys. (I'm not saying you are a fanboy)

Now unless you mean the PS3 exclusives coming out are not your type of games then ok, but PS3 has plenty of exclusives and if you do a google search you'll find many lists.

i should note that MGS4: "X" will come to 360 in maybe a year plus as an extended game that will be multiplat. For example MGS2 Subsistence or MGS3 Substance (I dunno if that's the true names). You will just have to wait.

however the First MGS4 will be PS3 only. Come on guys we know it will happen, it's what konami always does, GS has never been PS exclusive. (well maybe the first one but even that one had a gamecube remake)

#9 Posted by wheezal (3066 posts) -

how would they put a game as massive as MGS (which takes up a lot of room on a Blu-Ray disc) onto the X-Box 360 which uses regular DVD discs?

oh, and buy the PS#, it's cool. :)

MGS4 and Killzone2, FF games wow that all ya'll can say. You guys are making ps3 look bad

Most of the good games are multiplatform right now. If you don't have a 360, consider the PS3 for its Blu-Ray abilities and free online play.

There are some good exclusives for the PS3, but no game-sellers yet.

BTW, there have been strong suggestions that MGS4 WILL come to 360:

I could say a lot of things about the 360 that arent good at all but I am not gonna stoop down to your level. By the way, how did MGS online fail when it hasnt been out yet. It was just a beta for a couple of weeks on the ps3.

Strong? How are rumours strong when the only official word by both Konami and Kojima over and over again is that it is a ps3 exclusive. Also, Kojima already anounced that there will be no Sub version of MGS4 thanks to the miracle of DL content. There's no need for one. So there goes the idea of a sub version coming out and being ported to 360. Also, there is a reason why 3 was never ported, yes 2 was ported to the x-box but it was a failure on the x-box. Also, they would have to put so much time and money porting this game. Moreso than any other game. Also, with sony brand cell phones being confirmed in the game it's even more proof that the game will be a ps3 exclusive.

I read it, and I think I have lost brain cells as a result of it. Im PS2 owner turned 360 owner and this has got to be one of the most ignorant posts I have ever wasted my life reading. Dude, get your facts straight before you make such an incredible attempt at making ps3 owners look like retards. Your only valid point is that the PS3 will last longer in terms of a system refresh. I'll give you that but dude, come on. No offense to you PS3 peeps, but this guy should be hung, gagged and beaten. lrn2tipe

#25 Posted by swamplord666 (1873 posts) -
Seriously people need to do some research... Kojima and everyone who has a word in the development of the game have CONFIRMED it will be exclusive. And no i'm not going to spend my time finding a link because if youhave ever used google you can find it yourself.

MSG2 substance was on xbox a year later. But it sold so poorly, that MSG3's subsistance was not on xbox.

Way to overgeneralize there troll. It's people like you who also make 360 owners look bad because you are acting like an immature teenager (I'm right aren't I?) If you can't contribute anything decent, keep your mouth shut. You're just making yourself look like an idiot.
#29 Posted by donwon06 (424 posts) -
as usual, i see a lot of people are being asses on here. look, if you enjoy playing video games and have the money to get a ps3, get one. you won't regret it. both systems have good points and bad. there's going to be exclusive games for both systems that are going to be really good, and with the ps3 you get blu-ray. if you have an hd tv then that is a big selling point. to tell you the truth, since i got my ps3 i haven't hardly touched my 360 and my gold subscription expired and i don't even care to renew it right now. i've decided that any multi-platform game i'm getting on my ps3. my prefrence is the ps3, but that's my opinion. not knocking the 360, live is awesome and there's lots of good exclusives that are coming out that i will buy. so if you have the money and enjoy playing video games and not the system it's on, get one. simple decision.

by the way i've gone through 4 360's and probably still need a new one. damn disc read errors that microsoft still has not acknowledged as a huge problem. this was one of the main reasons i got a ps3 in the first place, and i haven't regretted it one bit.

that's why i decided to get a ps3: good upcoming games and the system isn't expected to tank. I just don't understand how people accept a piece of hardware that is expected to break and just shrug it off. If Ipods broke all the time would people buy it? I certainly wouldn't...

Once the Xbox 360 loses it's failure rate, i will consider buying one.

well with the latest motherboard revision currently on the shelves, you won't get that failure rate that plagued the earlier systems.

If you want to play MGS4, you will need to purchase a Ps3. My advice buy a Ps3, it's a ubber console!
#38 Posted by carneyfolk (608 posts) -
I sold my 360 for a ps3, and i have never regretted the decision. My personal preference leans towards sony games over MS games. Since more and more 3rd party exclusives are going the way of the dinosaur first party titles will be the most important feature. I happen to believe that sony first party games are superior to MS game studios.
#39 Posted by GrandTheftANL (195 posts) -

Seems like your happy with your 360, but if it ever craps out on you, give the ps3 a try, i did and i havent regret the day i spend 600 dollars on it. First off its a extremely well put machine, we get the same 3rd party games, along with some amazing 1 party games. Resistance 2 i dont know much about games on the 360 i dont think theyre a game online with more than 40 to 60 players.

Expandable hardrive ebay has 320 gb hardrive for 120.00, you might say thats overkill, not when you have your movie backed up in mp4, divx, etc. along with games that are taking space to kill loading (uncharted no load time if you play it from start to finish), oh playtv is worth mentioning too never miss a show,

I'm enjoying my ps3, i'll watch a lil bit of scarface, some carlitos way, browse the forums, and hit up some games all while i'm just laying on the bed, maybe you think the ps3 is not for you and maybe it isnt but like is said if your current machine craps out on you give the ps3 a try and you'll be suprised the first time you put your finger in the buttonless touchscreen (whatever it is), and you'll know you just stepped in a future proof machine

Hi,

I have been looking at buying a PS3 at £230. The main reason that I want it is basically for MGS4 as I have played all the others. The only thing is that I already own an xbox 360 and there are not many games that are exclusive to the PS3. Should I buy a PS3?

Also, is there any chance that there will be an xbox 360 version of MGS4?

I say just purchase a PS3 for MGS4, because that's all it's worth. It has no games, constant game release delays etc. I'll be getting a PS3 again in June, only to play MGS4 but I'll probably get rid of it again like I did with my 60GB one last year. So I say get it for MGS4.
#41 Posted by Orga777 (39 posts) -
It is more than just MGS4 that makes the PS3 as good as it is. Killzone, Resistance, Motorstorm (not a fan personally, but I don't like racing games anyway...), Eye of Judgement, Little Big Planet, Ratchet and Clank, Uncharted, Final Fantasy XIII (eventually...), Darth Vader in Soul Calibur IV (who is more aweomse than Yoda on the 360), and the most underrated title probably ever; Folklore (which is just amazing on so many levels.) You see what we have here? Variety. I say go for it and get it. You are bound to find something you like.

I read it, and I think I have lost brain cells as a result of it. Im PS2 owner turned 360 owner and this has got to be one of the most ignorant posts I have ever wasted my life reading. Dude, get your facts straight before you make such an incredible attempt at making ps3 owners look like retards. Your only valid point is that the PS3 will last longer in terms of a system refresh. I'll give you that but dude, come on. No offense to you PS3 peeps, but this guy should be hung, gagged and beaten. lrn2tipe

no i agree with this guy here. Just in terms of hardware, reliablity and function. THe ps3 is way better than the 360 with its other media functions other than games. Hardware, PS3 has the advantage too, which can be shown by the PS1 and PS2. Both lasted as longer than predicted. E.g. We got God of war 2 in 2007, a whole 7 years after its original release in Japan.

However with the 360, just into its 2nd year, we're already having 4 disk lost odyssey and Gta4 disk-space problems. Disk space will definitely be a problem, in the near future too. Even for graphics, we haven't seen a great leap from gears 1 to gears2. and for the PS3, indeed, only sony's partners konw how to programme well for the ps3, the ps3 is still young.

the probably area where the 360 edge out would be games, its starting to have a much better library than the old xbox. but while We've heard news of GOW3, FF13, FF13versus .. all planned for 2009 and beyound. There isn't much news for the 360 future. except for a new console. (and the whole 360 wii mote gimmick)

It is more than just MGS4 that makes the PS3 as good as it is. Killzone, Resistance, Motorstorm (not a fan personally, but I don't like racing games anyway...), Eye of Judgement, Little Big Planet, Ratchet and Clank, Uncharted, Final Fantasy XIII (eventually...), Darth Vader in Soul Calibur IV (who is more aweomse than Yoda on the 360), and the most underrated title probably ever; Folklore (which is just amazing on so many levels.) You see what we have here? Variety. I say go for it and get it. You are bound to find something you like.Orga777
And when exactly will we experience this "variety" when all the good PS3 games get delayed multiple times and probably wont have a solid release date for quite some time. SO at this moment a PS3 may not be worth the buy!

*sigh* Why not just look at the exclusive games and the decide? If there are enough, buy it, if not then don't. I would never buy a console just for one game.

Perhaps you have a friend who owns one and can lend you his for the game? I gave my Xbox to a Friend once for a weekend so he could play Halo.

Counting chickens before the eggs hatch eh? Don't be surprised if you start to see Squenix games go multi platform. I mean, business is business and they will make more money going multi (as they have clearly indicated they are interested in expanding their western audience - what better way then to release content on a western console)

I didn't actually realise there were as many exclusove games and I have played some of the previous ones of some of them. I think I might get it but is there going to be any price cuts soon, just so that I don't buy it now when I could get it cheaper in a few weeks.

Hi,

I have been looking at buying a PS3 at £230. The main reason that I want it is basically for MGS4 as I have played all the others. The only thing is that I already own an xbox 360 and there are not many games that are exclusive to the PS3. Should I buy a PS3?

Also, is there any chance that there will be an xbox 360 version of MGS4?

apart from mgs4 and blu ray there is not much point buying a ps3 if you have a 360. if you are going to buy one then look for used 60gb. the installs are really annoying. im not a fanboy i have both consoles. still uncharted and heavenly sword are awesome

rufnek...u make a point...square will go multi platform...but not with the same games...they already have games for other consoles and hand helds...and btw all the things i said in my previous post were true go look that **** up for yourself...but yeah there is money in multiplatform...but they wont be like releasing ff on xbox360...they will make titles specificlly for xbox...the xbox would not be able to run ff13...not in a million years...no matter how many extra add ons u buy for it...same with mgs4...what are they going to do release a 6 disc box set? haha...seriouslly man i know u love your xbox...im not saying its a bad system...im saying its a bad system compared with ps3...they should not have said xbox360 was a next gen system...cause as the head of sony said and i quote..."next gen gaming begins when WE say it does"

for those of you that think that mgs4 will never be on the 360 your wrong because everyone said that with the ps2 and the xbox, and guess what they came out with sons of liberty for the xbox, and as far as final fantasy goes... there are final fantasy games on the xbox. so, there might be a chance for the mgs4 on the 360. never say never.
