Metal Gear Solid: Rising Announced for Xbox 360

42
Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima himself today announced that the traditionally stealth-action Metal Gear Solid series is headed to the Xbox 360.

The next title in the franchise, Metal Gear Solid: Rising, was announced to be in development for the console. The game will center around Metal Gear character Raiden, with a subtitle of "Lightning Bolt Action."

"I can promise you that it is a completely new Metal Gear experience," said Kojima, who then noted that he couldn't say anything more about the game.

Update: Konami's official announcement for MGS: Rising bills the title as the first MGS game "to launch on the Xbox 360," but does not refer to it as an Xbox 360 exclusive.

        It doesn't say exclusive anywhere, it just states that MGS is coming to the 360... finally. Personally, I have a PS3 and don't own MGS4 and frankly don't plan to own it. I don't know why everyone raves about that game so much.

          Well being that ive played every MGS game i have to play 4, even if it does suck. (which im sure it doesnt)

          and honestly it doesnt really bother me that this is coming to 360, its actually not very surprising... i just hope its not exclusive to 360 as it could be a good game, that i dont wanna buy a 360 for.

          You haven't played it and you don't know what everybody raves about it.

          It all makes sense.

      http://tinyurl.com/lzvbde not exclusive, probably should cancel that ebay order if its just for one non exclusive game.
