One other thing to note. While they'll share a release date, there will be some differences between the version for PS4/Xbox One and the PS3/Xbox 360. One of the biggest differences pertains to the size of the multiplayer experience in the games new Metal Gear Online.
While the PS4 and Xbox One will support up to 16 players for Metal Gear Online, the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions will support just 12. It's still not clear if this will be the only multiplayer limitation imposed by Konami.
