Metal Gear Solid creator, Hideo Kojima, just like our staff at PlayStation LifeStyle, seems to have a Twitter addiction. The latest tweet from the legendary developer reveals the reasons behind Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of The Patriots’ theme.

Kojima’s twitter stated:

In MGS4 we used the idea of “Haven” for the theme in the game. This idea came from the information my son, at the time was in elementary school, gave me. He asked “Dad, do you know the name of the smallest country in the world?” and lectured me about “HavenCo” which was in the news at the time. From there, I researched about it and an idea starting brewing naturally in my head.

Metal Gear Solid 4 features enemies called Haven Troopers and a ship named Outer Haven.
