Metal Gear Solid 4 pokes fun at Xbox 360/Wii disc formats

By
Oh hardy har har!.  The [very] soon to be released PlayStation 3 exclusive Metal Gear Solid 4 contains a nice little cut scene poking fun at rival console disc formats.  Seems MGS4 will remain a PS3 exclusive with little digs like this contained herein.

In this sequence ripped from Metal Gear Solid 4, Dr Hal Emmerich, also known as Otacon gets Snake, MGS4’s main protagonist to change a disc.

Snake is instructed to swap disc 1 for disc 2, which the muscle bound warrior has trouble doing.  Otacon then realises ‘Wait! We’re on PS3 system! It’s a Blu-ray Disc’.  Being a 50GB dual layer disc, there is no need to go to disc 2 as all information is on a single disc.

Nice!  Funny. An obvious poke at the lower capacity DVD 9 systems employed by Xbox 360 and Wii.

Still, so far I haven’t come across a mandatory 20 minute hard drive installation title for the PS3 rivals.  8-)
