Metal Gear Solid 4 delayed till Q2 2008

379w ago - Konami announced today that Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots would be delayed till second quarter 2008.

The official press release states that Konami had initially intended to release MGS4 this winter. However, to make further improvements and to add finishing touches, Konami has pushed back the release date to ensure a quality product.

Konami finshed their press release with the statement, " Konami will continue its efforts to make "Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots" meet everyone's expectations."

PES 2008 patch to combat offline and online issues

Kojima stuck behind the early 2008 release date for his latest sequel, and users interested in remaining pure for his "last" installment in the series will probably want to avoid the new trailer.

Additionally, Kojima confirmed MGS4 will come bundled with a Metal Gear Online "starter pack," but declined to specify what exactly that includes. That wasn't all for the Metal Gear universe, either, as a new trailer rolled for Metal Gear Portable Ops Plus, which apparently sold a surprising 400,000 worldwide, prompting the special edition. The Metal Gear Solid 2 digital graphic novel is still in the works, as well, and Japan receives a bonus -- a free copy of the original digital graphic novel, now with voiceovers.

Outside of Metal Gear, however, the conference was surprisingly quiet, with an enormous emphasis...
