The wait will be over for a Metal Gear title to hit the Xbox 360 as Konami and Kojima announced Metal Gear Solid: Rising
will be coming to the Xbox 360 at the Microsoft Press Conference. The game will feature Raiden and I think saying he's a popular character from the Metal Gear universe in the PR might be embellishing a little bit. I don't know many that do like Raiden at all. With that announcement, I wonder what Kojima will say at the Sony Press Conference tomorrow about the game as I'm sure it will be hitting the PS3 as well.
