Konami Denies 360 Metal Gear Solid 4, Japanese Newspaper Silently Edits Story

Konami, in yet again denying rumors that Kojima Productions' Metal Gear Solid 4 (PS3) is in the works for the Xbox 360, made a quote from its PR man disappear in the night.

The persistent rumor popped up again after Konami PR rep Yoshitaka Arai told the Japanese branch of investment firm Morningstar, "we are investigating releasing a 360 version." But GameCyte picked up that Japanese game blog my game news flash noticed that the story was quietly changed.

Without update or retraction, the original Morningstar story was edited to mention the Winning Eleven (known over here as Pro Evolution Soccer) and Castlevania series in place of Metal Gear Solid 4.

"The talk about a 360 version of Metal Gear Solid 4 has somehow completely been replaced with talk about Winning Eleven!!!" exclaimed the Japanese blog.

    Why don't they talk about a fucking PC version? It could work and more people will get to play it. A lot of the shooting is first person now anyway, I think it would be perfect on the PC and even the original MGS was fine as a PC port.

    It might not be feasible to offer the game as a digital download, but the offering it on many DVDs and the sheer size of it alone would deter many of the casual pirates.

      I vote Wii version - I say Nintendo should come out saying "We can DEFINITELY handle MGS4 on the Wii." At a press conference!
