The rumours as to whether Xbox will snatch another PS3 exclusive from its rival are buzzing more than ever, following some comments by Japanese Konami PR Yoshitaka Arai.

Speaking recently of whether we'll ever see Metal Gear Solid 4 on Xbox 360, Arai confimed that "worldwide demand" for MGS4 on Xbox 360 was "quite high", and was something the company was "looking into".

This is something Xbox Live boss John Schappert was obviously thrilled to hear, and has followed up Arai's comments by stating how much he would love to see the game on the Microsoft console.

"I'm certainly in the fan club that would love to see Kojima-san's masterpiece come our way. It would be wonderful to play Metal Gear Solid on the Xbox. It could become another of the many franchises that started their life on another console that are now coming our way," he said.

Following a few concerns that the Xbox does not have the leg work to run MGS4, Schappert added: "I can't speak on behalf of Konami, but I can shed more light on the fact that we definitely have the power to run MGS4.

"There are a lot of recent examples that are in true high-def on our platform and aren't on PS3. We've got an amazing amount of horsepower and graphics power."

However, MGS creator Kojima has said that he was fed up of people wanting MGS4 on the Xbox 360, so whether we'll ever see it still remains to be seen.
