Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima has explained why Metal Gear Solid 4 and the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection will not be released on Xbox 360.
In an online radio show discussing the Legacy Collection (translated by Kotaku), Kojima said "I'm sorry to say an Xbox 360 version isn't being released, because an Xbox 360 version of MGS4 hasn't gone on sale. To explain the situation, the amount of data in MGS4 is just too enormous."
Kojima pointed out that due to Xbox 360’s use of DVD (as opposed to Sony’s use of Blu-Ray) Metal Gear Solid 4 would require seven discs to be released on Xbox 360. Kojima (presumably referring to the Metal Gear Legacy Collection) said "I want to put it out [on the Xbox 360], but we won't be releasing it." He added that “if we released a version on the Xbox 360 without MGS4, then it's not The Legacy Collection."
Kojima did note that “when it's the next console, maybe we can release it.”
I freaking lol'd.
Everyone asumed it would be multiple discs, but 7?!
My theory was that Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain would be one disc for PS3 and they would be on separate discs for 360. But now it seems like it would take more than two DVDs for 360 Ground Zeroes and the Phantom Pain.
