While I enjoy being a gamer, I also hate it that I’m also a part of a community filled with ignorant morons who think they know something, but they obviously never, ever, EVER researched what they are talking about. One recent example is Sony fans raving about the Xbox 360/One version of Metal Gear Solid V getting an exclusive Raiden mission and calling a Kojima a “traitor” since the MGS series has always been a PlayStation only franchise…lol.
For people who have actually researched the series, will know that the majority of the games have never…NEVER been Sony/PlayStation only. The original Metal Gear games were released on NES and MSX, none of them were on a Sony console til they re-released the games with MGS3 on PS2 and the HD edition. Metal Gear Solid 1 also had a PC version, which I believe was called Integral, which doesn’t make the game PlayStation Only. Metal Gear Solid 2 had an Xbox version, thus again making the game not PlayStation Only. Not only that but Kojima/Konami also released a Remake of MGS1 called Twin Snakes, a game that was a gamecube exclusive, and to this day STILL a gamecube exclusive. One could only argue that Snake Eater/Peace Walker were PlayStation only until they released the HD editions that were also released on Xbox 360. Thus pretty much leaving the only current exclusive being MGS4.
Yup, sounds REALLY PlayStation only when as it stands now the only Sony/PlayStation exclusive game is Guns of the Patriots, lol. Not only that but Metal Gear Rising was PS3/360, with a PC version coming eventually, same as Metal Gear Solid V.
This is why in some cases, Ignorance isn’t bliss. Calling a company/brand a traitor to the Sony way of the life, when technically the series to a point has always been Multi-platform. I guess in another sense you can say Kojima has never betrayed Sony fans when he’s never been “Loyal” in the first place?
Of course seeing how there’s so many of these type of gamers, while some people might read this rant and actually research it and find out for themselves, there will always be gamers who just will talk with a foot in their mouth regardless.
A grand day to be a gamer indeed…
