If you were too busy checking up on what Curiosity is doing on Mars, then you might have not heard of that new Konami game, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes. The game is said to be a prequel to Metal Gear Solid: 5, a game that is expected to feature on next generation video game consoles such as Microsoft's Xbox 720 codenamed Durango, and Sony's PlayStation 4.
There are many gamers out there in the thick of things who might only want Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes to be a PlayStation 3 only title; however, that is not going to be the case. Kojima has finally wised up and realized that, if he wants his golden franchise to rope in more dough, it would have to go multiplatform.
The PlayStation fanboys are probably so furious about this right now; not realizing that Metal Gear Solid is a game deserving to be on every game console imaginable. Once a video game franchise reaches a certain level of greatness, it needs to go multiplatform. Well, that is if it wasn't multiplatform in the first place, and if it is a third party title.
Some PlayStation fans are already complaining about how the game won't be that good because it is multiplatform. They are going on about Kojima would have to end up gimping the PlayStation 3 version of the game in order for it to work properly on the Xbox 360. They will come with the Blu-Ray vs DVD9 issue, they will come with all manner of things to try and make a case that has been long talked about for generations.
Sony does not own the Metal Gear Solid franchise, PlayStation fanboys need to be reminded of this every day, or else the Internet won't ever be a place of peace and tranquility. You see, how can Metal Gear Solid be considered a PlayStation game when the title has seen more exclusives on a Nintendo console than any other? The first two Metal Gear Solid games came out on the Nintendo Entertainment System and the MSX, while the others came out on PlayStation consoles.
But what is the big difference here, you might wonder. The two first Metal Gear Solid games were never launched outside of the NES, while every PlayStation version of Metal Gear Solid with the exception of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of Patriots, came out on competing consoles years after the intitial release. As it now stands, PlayStation only has one exclusive Metal Gear Solid game, so the question arises again - how is Metal Gear Solid a PlayStation game? By my logic, it is not.
Fans of the Xbox, stand tall knowing that no matter what the other group has to say, you will not argue, you will not be deterred from being a gamer and not a constant whiner. While the PlayStation fans are losing it over Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes not being exclusive, you will sit patiently waiting to have the last laugh when the title sells more copies on the Xbox 360.
