Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots was an important, big game for the PlayStation 3 and the fact that it's only on the PlayStation 3 has definitely helped boost Sony's sales...but it's also upset a lot of fans and potentially limited Konami's sales.

Now, Konami's Yoshitaka Arai has commented (again) on whether or not gamers can expect to see an Xbox 360 version of Metal Gear Solid 4 on the Xbox 360 while at the Tokyo Game Show.

Interestingly though, whereas before Konami has played down the rumours and said that they weren't even thinking about it, the company has now 'fessed up and admitted that it could be on the cards.

"The worldwide demand for an Xbox 360 version of MGS4 is quite high," said Arai, stating the bleeding obvious.

"It is something we are currently looking in to."

Of course, the fact that Konami is planning on maximising their sales and making an Xbox 360 version of the game isn't really all that surprising. The developer would be stupid to ignore all the money that could be made from an Xbox 360 port. What is surprising though is that Konami's exclusivity deal with Sony would even allow such a thing, as the game has been a bit stock-shifter for Sony.

Would you be interested in an Xbox 360 version of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, or is it all getting a bit long in the tooth for you? Let us know what you think in the forums.
