New Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 Box Lists Trophies, Support Incoming
Update: According to http://originalgamster.com/blog1/2010/11/04/konami-says-mgs4-trophies-are-not-coming/, Konami confirmed that the new Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 box listing trophies is unfortunately a misprint.
Today PlayStationLifeStyle.net (linked above) reports that the new Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 box lists PlayStation 3 Trophies concluding that long-awaited PS3 trophy support for the Konami title is incoming!
To quote: "The new "Greatest Hits" packaging for Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is currently hitting retailers everywhere, and the rear of the game case offers much hope for trophies finally being enabled for the PS3 exclusive.
While this isn't a confirmation, and we have seen some mistakes on game cases in the past, it certainly offers a glimmer of hope for a MGS4 trophy patch.
On the rear of the new MGS4 Greatest Hits edition case reveals - as seen on all PS3 games - a short list of PlayStation Network features available in the title. The list shows it as having online multiplayer, voice chat and... trophies!"
I hope this does become a reality for MGS 4. Even though I've already beaten the game on every difficulty I'll still play it again simply because I'm a major fan of the Metal Gear series. If anything I wish Heavenly Sword, Need For Speed: Carbon and Saints Row 2 would also recieve updated trophy support. Its a shame that NFS: Carbon isn't even compatible to the XMB of the PS3.
