Solid Snake has defected -- well, not exactly. "I didn't say anything about Solid Snake," said Hideo Kojima, arriving on stage as a surprise guest during Microsoft's E3 media briefing.

With the unveiling of a very brief teaser, Kojima unveiled Metal Gear Solid Rising the next title in his storied franchise -- which will be coming to Xbox 360.

In typically cryptic fashion, few other details on the Konami-published title were revealed. Like all iterations in the Metal Gear Solid franchise, Rising has a three-word subtitle, "Lightning Bolt Action," and appears to star MGS2 and 4 veteran Raiden, the war-traumatized ninja.

"It is a completely new Metal Gear experience," said Kojima. "You can look forward to many great things."

The Metal Gear Solid franchise was considered the most desirable remaining hold-out to PlayStation 3 exclusivity, after Microsoft and Square Enix announced last year that Final Fantasy XIII, another longtime Sony loyalist, would cross platforms in the U.S.

The Metal Gear Solid Rising deal is likely a similar proposition, as no mention of exclusivity was made during the event.
