Kojima E3 Announcements Could be Good News Bad News [Update]

May 15, 2009 Written by Richard Allen


Metal Gear Solid 4 may go down in the pantheon of video games as being the game with the most [shal]rumor[/shal] and [shal]speculation[/shal] surrounding it.  We are on the precipice of [shal]E3[/shal] and it wouldn’t be an E3 without some [shal]MGS[/shal] shenanigans now would it?  Matt Furtado over at Kombo seems to think Kojima’s E3 announcements could present [shal]PS3[/shal] enthusiasts with a case of good news, bad news.

This doesn’t appear to be too much more then speculation at this point, but the author states his case that Metal Gear Solid 4 will receive DLC and the coveted trophy patch. That’s the good news. The bad news is that MGS4 will be released for the Xbox 360 in 2010 with the DLC included.

The most recent rumors surrounding the upcoming Kojima announcement are quite minor when compared to a new game announcement. As of now, the latest speculation is that Konami will announce Raiden based DLC for the PS3. Coinciding with the DLC will also be the long awaited Trophy patch for MGS4. Players will take control of Raiden through a total of 2 new chapters. Whether or not this will take place during the events of MGS4 or will be something completely new isn’t known.

It’s also being rumored that MGS4 will officially be announced for the 360. To keep Sony and PS3 owners happy, the 360 won’t see the game until Spring 2010. The 360 version will come packed with the DLC, but PS3 owners will have it exclusive for several months before the 360 title is released.

[Update] Game Of Honor had a chance to follow up with Kojima Productions.
