Konami quashes cross-development rumors.
While Sega's latest saga has certainly held dominion over the realm of Internet rumors in recent weeks, further uncertainty has been spreading concerning Konami's plans for Metal Gear Solid 2. Speculation has rapidly arisen regarding the topic, but Konami recently interrupted the frenzy, clarifying its stance on cross-development for the Metal Gear Solid series.
Konami, while avoiding questions relating to the exact nature of Metal Gear Solid on Xbox, did deny that the company is even considering developing MGS2: Sons of Liberty for Microsoft's embattled console.
The Konami representative added, "This is what I hate about the Internet era. It's so easy for rumors to develop. It's created freedom of speech with anonymity."
