And for those talking about Nintendo leading the industry in the right direction.. Regardless of your opinion on motion controllers, Gyration has had work on this before Nintendo, and even supplied Nintendo with their first motion based prototype in 2001. Nintendo isnt leading anything, they are doing what you accuse others of doing. EDIT - And, Gyration has had products on the market, along with other companies, doing this before Nintendo.

This is not an april fools joke just because you missed the news posts from a few days ago and didnt see it until now. lol... It was at GDC, and has info out there from other sources. << LINK REMOVED >>
Again, people, you are pointing fingers in the wrong direction and it is pointless, you prove nothing when you complain about something that isn't even an issue in this case. DRM has nothing to do with this... Here is a repost of my previous post since people cant seem to scroll down a few comments before posting again. "Before people all run around spewing vitriol about it being a DRM issue, do some research. It is a certificate expiration, granted it shouldn't have happened, but certificates are what they sign code with to show it is authentic and made by xxx company and not some virus laden POS by some 12 year old with a chip on his shoulder. That means, it had nothing to do with DRM, and everything to do with authenticity certificates." 19 posts, 5 of which complain about DRM, since I last posted this. That means 1 out of 4 people aren't reading before commenting, nor do they understand the problem at hand and are just assuming it is related to DRM and spouting off... Makes me sad about what things have come to on message boards/comment sections.

Also, one last note. A "Real Gamer" is someone who plays and enjoys games, someone who supports the industry in the little ways they can, that is a real gamer. Just because a "real gamer" doesnt want to support company XXX doesnt mean they arent real gamers, they simply may not think (Like myself) that company XXX is going in a direction that is best for the industry, and as such refuse to support them. To think that intelligence and subjective opinions mean you arent a real gamer, is just absurd.
Those of you saying it isnt a "Solid", might want to think again. "<< LINK REMOVED >>" Notice the MGST? That is where generally the initials to the projects name are. MGS4, MGA (Metal Gear Solid 4, Metal Gear Acid)... So it is either another Metal Gear Solid, or possibly Metal Gear Solid Touch, etc. But to think it isnt a solid, is being a bit naive.
All that needs said, is that previous Metal Gears have been on platforms other than Sony (Including the orig. XBOX), and that while MGS4 may have taken up 40gb on a BluRay (multilayer), that was with no compression of the Audio/Video. With compression being able to be used on the 360 better for a variety of architectural reasons, and near loss-less compression being available, shrinking that 40gb to 8gb or less isnt impossible, or a two disc release for that matter. Further, the graphics are very doable on the 360, as the 360 does technically have the stronger GPU, just like the PS3 technically has a stronger CPU. Some people just dont want it to happen, for whatever reason, so they will throw up whatever magical figures they can, even if it just came from a Sony bobble-head who is paid to confuse you and sell their products.
Sigh... Its amazing how many people dont understand, that HD-DVD was NEVER meant to play games, only movies, for those who wanted it, same as what Blu-Ray would be if they released an addon for it. As in, it cant really "fail", if you want Blu-Ray movie playback, buy it, if you dont - dont. Its quite simple, and choice is never a bad thing, and is quite a bit different than Sega, who required addons to complete a GAMING experience, or to play xxx game you had to have a 32x, SegaCD, and a Genesis, along with a 6-button control pad, quite different than a GAME SYSTEM which allows the CHOICE of an addon for HD movie playback, in this case Blu-Ray.
