E3: MGS: Rising for PC, PS3, 360

Konami puts the issue to bed.

Konami has confirmed Metal Gear Solid: Rising for simultaneous release on PC, PS3 and 360.

The announcement settles exclusivity issues - started by an Xbox 360 unveiling during the Microsoft E3 conference.

Hideo Kojima, creator of MGS, will not take charge of Rising. He told a Konami press conference audience that "up-and-coming young bloods" will boss development, but will retain the "stealth espionage" feel.

Metal Gear Solid: Rising stars Raiden and not Solid Snake as the main character. Raiden is part robot, like Robocop, and is capable of very flash gymnastics. [He is not like Robocop. - Ed]
