It’s not the first time we heard a rumor like this and everytime Xbox 360 users have to face huge disappointment when the news of Metal Gear Solid 4 getting released on Microsoft’s console get shot down. However this time things look a little different and the game could be finally coming, thanks to the celebratory special edition already confermed on Ps3.
Once again it’s a retail listing that starts the rumor: Online retailer Mighty Ape, who leaked other upcoming games as well, has posted a listing for the Xbox 360 version of the 25th anniversary edition of Metal Gear Solid 4, together with a boxart. However the box art it’s almost identical to the Ps3 one so it’s hardly official even though it would make sense if the retailer just wanted to get the game’s listing up without waiting for the official announcement, if the rumor ends up being true.
While Metal Gear Solid 4 has always been a Ps3 exclusive, it wouldn’t be the first time a mainline Metal Gear Solid game gets released on a Microsoft console: Metal Gear Solid 2 expansion, Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance was released on the original Xbox and all current generation Metal Gear games, with the exception of MGS 4, are available on Microsoft’s console and even the next installment of the series, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be coming on Xbox 360 next year, at the same time of the Ps3 version.
The Metal Gear Solid 4 25th Anniversary Edition is supposed to be released before the end of the month featuring the patched Metal Gear Solid 4 game with Trophy support and Full Installation Option.
