Kojima FINALY Explains Why MGS4 Will Nver be on the 360.

http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/05/02/metal-gear-solid-4-too-enormous-for-xbox-360?abthid=5182baf44...

 

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?! :smileyvery-happy:

Dual-layer DVDs are 8.5 GB full. MGS4 runs in a 50 GB dual-layer Blu-ray. If we asume MGS4 use the full disc, that would make aprox. 6 DL DVDs. 5 DL DVDs are 42.5 GB, and it's safe to assume MGS4 use more than that, so yeah, that'll make 6 discs for the 360.

 

Basically, I do math better than Kojima.

That's the basic DVD that 360 games use...

^ Here's something I just thought of. Forgive me I'm just being an idiot and there's a simple answer: how is MGSV being released on 360? Will it be toned down so it is compatible with the hardware (can't be; it is open-world, and FOX engine looms incredible)? Is this why Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain seem to be very separated at times?

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.

they would cram all the discs into a regular case and put a rubber band around it.

Actually, I think that's what the whole Fox Engine is. In MGS4, Kojima was testing with new stuff, so he didn't make everything efficient. Uncompressed data and stuff. So I think with the new Fox Engine, he will be able to reduce the six discs to 3 or 4.
