PlayStation fans have started a petition on in order to stop Hideo Kojima from working with Microsoft. Kojima-san is reportedly in talks with Microsoft for a new Xbox exclusive.

GamesBeat's Jeff Grubb reports that the deal between Microsoft and Hideo Kojima is now close to being completed. Apparently, the two parties have signed a letter of intent that states that they intend to work out the details on a publishing agreement for a new Xbox game.

And while this is certainly exciting news for Xbox and PC owners, PlayStation fans are not quite happy with Kojima's decision to work with Microsoft. Believe it or not, a small group of PS fans have started a petition on , to stop Hideo Kojima from working with Xbox. 

A person under the name of Vrinn Y has accused Kojima of betraying his fans. Apparently, Kojima-san has been blinded by a big bag of money that Microsoft are offering.

"Kojima is betraying his loyal fans. He has been blinded by greed. We must help him come back to the winning side. PLEASE SHARE THIS PETITION EVERYWHERE," it's written in the description.

You may ask how we know that PlayStation fans are behind this ridiculous petition? Well, further in the description, the person who started it, states that "not everyone has enough money to buy a new console or build a new PC". Given that the game would be exclusive to Xbox console, it's safe to say that it's PlayStation fans that don't want to buy a new Xbox.

The saddest part of the story is that the petition does not seem to be some sort of lame joke but luckily it does not seem to have any traction with only 58 people signing it at the time of writing. Let's hope it stays that way, honestly.

Thanks, The Gamer.
