Don't jump of a cliff just or slash your wrists yet, it's still a rumor, but it seems Metal Gear Solid may no longer be a franchise exclusive to the PlayStation as Konami may be bringing MGS 4 to the Xbox 360 as they feel there may not be that many PS3 units to make the game profitable.
Gaming website noooz.com, who by the way are the people behind this piece of news (or rumor) state that their information is pretty accurate as they "rarely run news unless they’re 100% confident".
Is this a trend started by Assassins Creed? All will be revealed in time; expect an official announcement this week.
Noooz.com is not a credible source for information. There rumor is based on the assumption that not enough PS3s will be available at MGS launch, which is stupid. MGS4 launch is on the tail end of all exclusives releasing next year. If there aren't enough PS3s by then, this should've already affected all exclusives releasing before MGS resulting them dumping PS3 altogether, which is insane. MGS4 may come out on 360 but well after its release on PS3, just like MGS2 came out on Xbox and PC.
Here's quote of Kojima from a more reliable source IGN ....
In a recent Web interview with Hideo Kojima, the master of all things Metal Gear Solid explained that creating Metal Gear Solid 4 is technically possible on Xbox 360.??Kojima said with the exception of nuances or small details, the power of next generation hardware (and the PC) no longer provides the technical restrictions they did before. Kojima also explained in a sideways manner why the Xbox never saw a version of Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater. He explained that he has no grudge or dislike for the Xbox or Xbox 360, but last year he and his team had their hands full with MGS3. Other Konami teams, he said, were able to get their hands on the Xbox 360 tools before him. It's his philosophy that he wants to be first, not second on the early development for a system, which is why he chose PS3.??When IGN contacted Konami America today, the representative said, "there are no new developments or news to share about any Metal Gear products coming to Xbox or 360."

Having a PS3 these days is like wearing a big fat "I told ya so" T-shirt
