    It's way too early for April Fool's Jokes, so I have no idea how this happened.

    Didn't a certain person who was EXTREMELY important to this say it would not happen?

    Why not summarize what the link is since it doesn't seem to be working at the moment.

    Hmmm...take Metal Gear's corny story lines and bring it to a Nintendo console? I see Solid Snake on a mission to save all of humanity by protecting the environment from Yoshi poop.

    Metal Gear, from what I know is most likely not coming back to Xbox. Konami was kinda disappointed with the Xbox sales in both the US and Japan.

    I hope it's just the Metal Gear Solid 1 upgrade and not something new

    Yay! I will buy it. I've only played through MGS 1, neither of the sequels.

    Hehe, that's funny because as a gamer I was disappointed in Konami's Xbox performance [​IMG] Why in the world it ran slower than the PS2 version and didn't have 480p graphics is just beyond me. I knew they would draw the conclusion that the Xbox wasn't a MGS seller, but then along comes Splinter Cell -- so I guess maybe now Konami eats a little humble pie. Make a good port next time and maybe someone will buy it...

    Joe: Comparing the PS2 MGS2 numbers to the Xbox Splinter Cell numbers, I don't think anyone's eating any pie other than money pie any time soon.

    And regarding this thread, I'm a bit confused. Why is this not supposed to happen?

    Josh - The godlike designer of the MGS games said that they were going to design for PS2 and Xbox and not GC. Now Xbox is out because of MGS:Substance sales and suddenly GC is being treated like a golden boy (over even PS2). The fans who bought a PS2 for MGS games feel a little betrayed by this turnaround.

    Also, I was trying to point out that Konami said MGS:Substance didn't sell well on Xbox because the market wasn't there, or that the Xbox consumers didn't want that type of game. Then Splinter Cell (same genre) comes along and sells a ton of copies, so obviously the market on Xbox was there. Konami just couldn't capture it with such a lame port of MGS2. Just think it is lame for Konami to blame Xbox owners for Konami's mistakes.

    I concur with Brian's comments: regardless of what he may or may not have said, it's all about $$$, not about 'shafting' certain console owners.

    Besides, if anyone has a right to bitch about being 'shafted' by Konami, it's GameCube-only owners.

    Isn't the recent MG release the one where it appears to be a cool first person shooter similar to the ones in the past except for the skateboarding.

    Why would take a game and add completely non related things like skateboarding to it?

    They're not shafting me? Of course they're not: I have all three consoles.

    One more time: I am stating that if anyone has the right to complain about lack of Konami titles, it's Cube owners who get a steady diet of Disney Sports titles.

    Personally, it doesn't make any difference to me--like I said, I own all three and, furthermore, didn't I just state that it all comes down to the money?

    Well I guess recent events with this title and Splinter Cell should teach people not to buy a console system for just one game.
