208w ago - Update: According to PSI, whom have translated the article, a Metal Gear Solid for both PSP and PS3 will be released that will be connectible with each other.
The game will take place seven years after the events of Metal Gear Solid 4. The Big Boss character in the scans is not actually Big Boss but his most recent clone, who's said to have played a role in Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4.
Over the last seven years his aging has been rapid. That's all we got out of the translation.
The countdown site for Kojima Productions' next game has recently updated with an image of Metal Gear Solid's Big Boss. Now, a new interview with Kojima in the latest issue of Famitsu magazine has the image of Big Boss and Raiden (it could also be Gray Fox).
The interview, titled "Director Kojima Interview With Tons of Blanked Out Words: Talking The Latest MGS", contains little information on the next Metal Gear Solid since Kojima says at the end that it's only okay to publish the interview if Famitsu blanks out all the important words.

217w ago - If you've followed the Live Blog of Hideo Kojima's GDC 2009 Keynote, you might be asking yourself, "What's the deal with the last startling images of the presentation?".
After a rousing speech taking audience members through the entire Metal Gear franchise the last image we were left with was a bold still which reads "Mission: The Next MGS". Furthermore, planted in the top right corner of the still is a clear impression of the cyber ninja Raiden (close-up after the cut):
Which leads us to Kojima's interview earlier this week with IGN, where he stated that work was currently underway on a new game and that "An official game announcement will be made at E3."
Could the images above be the smoking gun for the next Metal Gear Solid to be a Raiden-specific outing? Given that of course, there was no other mention of specifics or hints given throughout the keynote, for we'll have to wait and see not when, but what will be announced at this year's E3.
There's definite writing on the wall, but what's your theory on the official announcement at E3?
