    I was in the game store the other day renting a gamecube, and I got talking to the owner about Xbox, Ps2 and exclusive titles. My point was that there were no strong Ps2 exclusives, since things like Metal Gear were being ported to Xbox. He then said that Konami cancelled the Xbox release last week-is this true? I've looked everywhere for confirmation or denial of this, but there's nothing. Anyone know any more about this?

    Konami have most definitely not announced MGS-X being cancelled. They're just being *very* *very* quiet about it.

    I SERIOUSLY doubt that MGS-X has been cancelled. I can Guarantee that you won't hear a peep out of Konami about it till after the holidays. It would be professional suicide for them to start talking about what they will do to it for the XBOX. Stealing the PS2's holiday thunder is NOT something they want to do.

    There even might be a contract stipulation asking that they hold off on the release for a certain amount of time after the PS2 game launch.

    But why would they announce Silent Hill 2 X so quickly after it's PSX 2 release? Why not do the same with MGS X?

    Silent Hill 2 is not quite the "event" game that MGS2 is. SH2X does not have quite the same impact as MGS2X.

    I suggest you look at the gaming sites on the net...they are a lot more reliable than the typical fanboys you meet in the gaming stores. [​IMG]

    Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams also is not that much greater than SH2. Its pretty much Silent Hill 2 with a second game that is 4-6 hours long. Nobody knows anything about MGSX, so it could be MGS and MGS2 or MGS2[​IMG]irector's Cut or something else that would be big.

    I don't know-I usually trust the guys who own the game shops, since they seem to have a better idea of what's going on than most. I don't know when the game was originally set to ship, but might it have been pushed back?

    Regardless, here's hoping that the rumor isn't true, since MGS2 is one of the only reasons I can think of to buy a Ps2 now.

    While we're on the Ps2/Xbox ports thread, what about Squaresoft? Any chance we'll see ffX on the Xbox (FFX X maybe?) Actually-a semi conspiracy based theory on that...

    What might happen is that we'll see a schism-the North American companies supporting the Xbox and the Japanese ones the Ps2. Since the Xbox seems to be concentrating on the North American market primarily (about time!) this might start a backlash among japanese gamers and development houses...

    Square has said before that FFXI is the only FF game (up to 12) that will be on something other than PS2 (and only PC has been confirmed). FFXI might come out on X-Box or even GameCube, but no other FF titles.
