Kazumi Kitaue, the head of Konami’s North American and European operations, has spoken recently about the price drop of the PS3 and how it affects people’s decision to purchase the system:

“I wonder if Sony can win back user support by the price cut of just $100. I don’t expect a substantial impact … With $500, you can buy a personal computer.

“Since Metal Gear Solid was born for the PlayStation, we would like to keep it a PlayStation game. But we might have to take some steps”

This would be a HUGE blow to Sony if Konami ever decided to go away from the PS brand. They don’t confirm anything, but they definitely hint at the possibility of MGS going multiplatform. With the success of Wii, it will be hard for Konami to overlook the Wii as an option.
