Well, maybe…maybe not. Hideo Kojima apparently has no current plans to port the handheld masterpiece to the PlayStation 3, but he does comment on the possibility.
In speaking to JeuxFrance , the MGS mastermind spoke about the idea of bringing Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker to the PS3; it's currently one of the best games available on the PSP. We had heard rumors in the recent past about the possibility of Konami porting the excellent title to the PSN, but none of those rumors or speculation has been addressed by the publisher. Said Kojima:
"I can not say I'll do a direct conversion of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker on Playstation 3. However, this game was a challenge in terms of its development on the PSP for me and I probably will preserve the base of it. And if I had to port it to another console, I would add even more depth to the story."
Well now, that's an interesting idea, isn't it? Not only will those who loved the game on the PSP get to play a bigger, better version on the PSN, but fans who don't own a PSP will get this critically acclaimed Game of the Year contender. Remember that Kojima has often referred to Peace Walker as "Metal Gear Solid 5;" he was directly involved in the development of the game and that means he's very close to it. Therefore, it's not surprising that if it were to make the leap to the PS3, he'd want to make the game even better. He's a perfectionist, right?
