Platinum Games Won't Outsource This Time
So, Metal Gear Solid: Rising is no more. The troubled Konami title was almost shut down, until Hideo Kojima had a chat with Platinum Games - whose notable titles include Bayonetta and the underrated Vanquish - and the former Capcom team stepped in, renamed it Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and the rest will soon become history.
PS3 fans had reason to doubt Platinum Games' involvement, especially when their last hack-and-slasher turned out oh so wrong on Sony's platform thanks to a poor port Platinum sanctioned. Well, fret no longer PS3 owners, as Platinum has plumped for the PS3 to act as Revengeance's lead platform. Producer, Atsushi Inaba, confirmed the news on Twitter. All that footage of Platinum employees demonstrating the game with a 360 controller? PC kits. [Twitter]
