Microsoft: Xbox 360 Can Handle 'MGS 4'


Posted October 16, 2008 - By jmanalang

According to an interview with MCV, Microsoft's VP of Xbox Live services John Schappert believes the Xbox 360 console is capable of running Hideo Kojima's masterpiece Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. Schappert said he would “love to see the game come to 360" after speaking his praise for Old Snake's latest mission.

“I can’t speak on behalf of Konami, but I can shed more light on the fact that we definitely have the power to run MGS4," said Schappert. He said that there are "recent examples" of "true high-def" titles currently on the Xbox 360 that can't be found on the Playstation 3. Currently, Metal Gear Solid 4 and its online counterpart, Metal Gear Online, are only available for Sony's home console.

Before Schappert's interview, game producer Hideo Kojima said it would be a "difficult" task to recreate MGS4 for the 360 due to title's current Blu-Ray support. "Technology-wise, the 360 is very different to the PS3, and because MGS4 was optimized for the PS3 it is probably not possible," said Kojima in a previous report.
