Anyone surprised that the Metal Gear Solid V exclusive content isn't for Xbox?

Seriously, Microsoft has been giving Hideo Kojima some major ass kissing for the last few years, even featuring him in the "Xbox Anthem" video. I mean, he has been at every MS E3 conference for the last few years with even having Metal Gear Solid V being the opening for the Xbox One's E3 event a few months ago.

How is it that with the relationship Microsoft built with Kojima and Konami that the exclusive content is for the PS4 and PS3? It really makes no sense at all, and I thought for sure the 360 and Xbox one would get it

PSVita & 3DS

I'm still pissed that MGS5 isn't X1 exclusive like Larry said.

Maybe he's more loyal to his country and sony pals.

I still remember when Major Nelson told us MGS5 would be a Xbone exclusive.

Well Microsoft paid Kojima a boat load of money at E3 to have the trailer of MGS V to appear at their conference. If I was Kojima as well I would do the same to make the game better regardless of what his personal preference was.

From a business standpoint, giving exclusive content to the xbox might have been a good idea to incentivize people who may never have had any experience with a metal gear game. At the same time it's probably a good idea to give it to playstation to suppress the rage people get when their console exclusive goes multi-plat.

If you really liked the Metal Gear series, you would've already gone with Playstation. Just be glad that V is even on the Xbox 360/One.

If it was 360/x1 exclusive the fanboys would have tantrums, they would petition konami and boycott them as well. They would rage about ms moneyhatting companies and say ms ruined the game for them.
