Rumorang: MGS4 'exclusive' to PS3, 'no plans' for Xbox version, Konami declares

Yes! No!! Maybe so? The tossing of the rumorang continues as Konami has paralyzed New Year's "confirmation" of Metal Gear Solid 4 for Xbox 360: "For the record, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is a PlayStation 3 exclusive and there are no plans to develop an Xbox 360 version of the game," a Konami representative has reportedly told TGR. No plans?

Well, there are plans – just if and when these 'plans' are executed seems to hinge on sales of the PS3 version: Poor sales suggest Konami would port MGS4 to Xbox 360 in an attempt to recoup development costs. Then again, strong sales could point Konami in a similar direction. Why not fatten profit by going multiplatform, say, like, 12-14 months down the line...? (Hear that? That's the sound of the rumorang circling back around.)
