May 15, 2007 - Like a crack dealer dangling his wares at the playground gates, Konami has revealed it's offering PlayStation Portable fans a tantilising whiff of its latest Metal Gear Solid title, Portable Ops, in demo form.

Already available for download via Sony's http://www.yourpsp.com, the demo dishes out a teaspoon's worth of the full game's offline multiplayer mode. It's a one-map Deathmatch demo, where up to six players can rack up the points with judicious annihilation of their pals.

Just in case the concept of multiplayer deathmatches are utterly alien to you, Konami provides this useful guide to clambering up the ranks: "The winner is the player with the most hits within the time limit, with double points awarded to the victor in the following round. However, player's toppling the current leader are awarded with triple points". So now you know.

Anyway, if you're still straddling Snake with indecision, check out the demo - it's just like the real thing, only smaller!
