Metal Gear Solid: Rising Coming to the PC, Alongside Xbox 360 and PS3?

Category: Gaming
Posted: 07:05AM

One of the big announcements out of the Microsoft camp (albeit, not that surprising) was that the next installment in the Metal Gear Solid (MGS) series would be released on the Xbox 360. Xbox fanboys quickly gloated and laughed at the Sony supporters...but not so fast! Not only will the game be released on the PlayStation 3 as well, but in a surprising turn of events, it seems Metal Gear Solid: Rising will also be coming to the PC! Yep, you read that correctly. This news is courtesy of Games Press, a UK-based press-release service that GameSpot claims is relied upon by much of the games industry, and correctly revealed the multi-platform release of Crysis 2 before it was officially announced. In addition, PSP owners won't be left in the dust; Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is being developed for the PSP and is slated for release sometime in 2010. This is certainly good news for all MGS fans.

Well.. It seems that Microsoft begged their ass off to get the MGS on their Platform lol Kojima's bank account must be filled by now lol... Yet anyone knows about the releasing date? is Snake going to be there? Big Boss? Any of 'em? I know Raiden is taking control and being the man for now.. but any furthur info?

I heard this supposed to take a big turn in direction away from the previous MGS games so I'm curious. We'll just have to wait to see how it turns out.

I'm not familiar with the MGS games, so I can only say what I've heard...in this game, you play as Raiden, which is leading people to believe that this game will be more action-oriented and less stealth-based.

I'm very excited about this game. However folks, like always, we'll have to wait until after the console versions. Just like Red Faction Guerilla and Street Fighter 4. But I won't cry, I'll be busy playing Crysis.

Not necessarily. There have been several games released concurrently (Dragon Age: Origins, for example was actually going to be released on the PC first, but they pushed back the release to coincide with the consoles...and Crysis 2 is supposedly going to see a simultaneous multi-platform release as well). I don't think any release date has been given for MGS:Rising, so we'll have to wait and see.
