What I meant was that Microsoft doesn't need to specially license the game; it's published by Konami. They can put it out for whatever console they like. If they do an exclusive game, it's because a console maker convinced them to do it, not the other way around.

 

MGS games have been available on the PC for years, so it makes sense that an XBox version would appear eventually.

MGS2 ended up on the original Xbox.  2 and 3 ended up on 360 as the collection.  I don't think MGSV being on XB1 is a big deal.

 

Uncharted, however, is published by Sony.  Every game has a developer (who makes it) and a publisher (who often pays at least somewhat for the game development then pays to make copies, get licensing rights, distribute the game, and advertise it).  Sony publishes Uncharted.  I believe they actually own the franchise.  Similarly, Microsoft owns Halo outright even though Bungie is no longer owned by Microsoft.  I think they have a similar arrangement with Gears of War (MS owns it but Epic makes it).

 

So no, Uncharted will never end up on Xbox One.  And even if it could, it wouldn't be for a long time and hasn't been announced so my original comment about the XB1 having an uninteresting lineup holds.

I believe the publisher normally owns the IP, as opposed to the developer. See also Call of Duty; for years the games alternated between the developers Treyarch and Infinity Ward, but were always published by Activision.
