First two symbols look like the Wii, whilst the last symbol reminds me of the 360...it really could go either way.

Ok I've seen the pic elsewhere but doesn't the third symbol appear on the PS3 standby switch = |/O (with a little line at the top of the "O")?

Man, I sure as hell hope that this isn't gonna be a new cool MGS game exclusively for a console that I don't own! I had a 360 once... I blew so much money on that damn thing, only to sell it less than a month later! If this new game or whatever it is, is in fact an exclusive to a console that I don't have, I hope that it's a Metal Gear game that I can live without, like the Ac!d games.

+1 to that, I'd cry if it was a canonical game that I couldn't play cos it's a sh!tbox exclusive.

It most likely means what everyone is least expecting.

Ha yea, I bet that's exactly what its going to turn out to be.

The first two symbols look like Wii to me and the last one looks more like Xbox than PC. Strange... I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

I understand why a lot of you guys see the whole x box thing, but you have to remember, that symbol is the universal 'on' button designation. I'm not saying that it wont be for the the x box, I'm just saying keep an open mind, and don't draw any conclusion's till we have more info. I'm curious to see what all this means, thats for sure.

Jeremy Parish sums up my thoughts on a potential next entry in the Metal Gear-series pretty well.

that would be no good as soon as you play it a few times on the 360 that green circle with the exclaimation mark would turn red with the red ring of death

right because if it is indeed for the x box konami will purposely sabotage the game by making it hard for the system to run. :roll:

I'd tend to agree.

The green really makes me think it's MGS4 for the 360... But who knows? Maybe it's Ac!d for the DSi :p.

I think we've already come to the conclusion that a 360 port of 4 is nearly impossible. Or at the very least, incredibly hard and unlikely.

Maybe it'll be something like MGO.

This would be my guess. As sucessful as MGO is on PS3 (compared to the previous outing on PS2), the only way MGO will survive in the long run is to be online for 360, which already has an insane amount of FPS next-gen shooting online players anyways. It would be an excellent mine of new MGO users to keep it going. This also means more attention on MGO, and possibly more patches to make it a better experience.

Porting MGO would be like a 1/3rd of the cost of making a new MGS game, I would think.


Alas, a part of me would love to see MGS3 on 360 though... it would be even with next-gen graphics / mechanics.

Well if Konami lets it go to Xbox it will sure be for the extra revenue if nothing else. I would prefer keeping in on PS3 just for Sony's sake. It is one of the biggest exclusive games and one of Sony's last trump cards.

Wrong; Sony's trump card is not MGS, and even if it was, they've already used it with MGS4, as MGS4 more or less wrapped up the storyline, and future MGS games will be riskier to develop & not will not be ensured successful sales.

Sony's trump card would be as simple as lowering their prices; Microsoft already did this, seeing the Wii's immense success as reason to do so; don't expect Sony to hold out for more than a year with their current prices. Sony also has the PS2 still generating revenue, the PSP re-gaining interest due to a slew of RPG remakes, & they have the odd original game, like LittleBigPlanet, that help keep their cred up. Keep in mind, neither nintendo nor microsoft have their own PS2 which is still kicking & selling, & without a huge price drop that the PS1 had when the PS2 was about a year or two old (the ps2 still sells, retail, for USD 130.00). Sony has good revenue to fall back upon to continue to take some damage until things fall into place for them. If only they made every PS3 backwards compatible (hardware, but at the very least software, none of this 40gb crap), would I think they'll do alright.

There is also the possibility this won't be 360 at all; the Iphone would not be a stretch to imagine MGS popping up on, as previously mentioned here, I think.

Personally, I think a Wii & Iphone appearence are more likley. I would bet on another cell phone outing too, & would also put money on a DS original at some point, especially since the DS-i sold half a million in its first month in japan alone.

Well it's NOT MGS4 for XBoX 360, that's impossible according to Kojima.

I'm gonna say it has nothing XboX related at all...maybe Wii?
the "ON" button is green, but my SONY laptop has the same green "on button"....
and many other electronic gizmos do to as well.

I'd bet on Metal Gear Ac!d 3, i mean the "!" is in the "AC!D" logo design!

MGA 1 "!" + MGA 2 "!" = MGA 3 "!/O" ...maybe the "ON" is online related????
