While the 15-minute trailer for Metal Gear Solid 4 revealed a lot about the characters and settings of Solid Snake's (allegedly) final adventure, there's a lot that's still shrouded in secrecy. But in the August issue of our sister magazine PSM (available now to subscribers), series creator Hideo Kojima pulls back the curtain just a little to reveal a few more juicy details.
"There are many events that have occurred between [Metal Gear Solid 2] and MGS4; lots of small stories" Kojima said in

Metal Gear Solid 4: The Guns of the Patriots will take us "all around the world like Hitchcock or 007" when it's released on PS3 next year, director Hideo Kojima has revealed - so the battle-torn Middle Eastern location we've seen in the latest trailers isn't the only place that Snake will be sneaking around.

Hideo Kojima, legendary developer and creator of the Metal Gear Solid series, has revealed his disappointment at the lack of a rumble feature in Sony's PS3 SixAxis pad. "I miss the rumble," he's said in a recent interview, adding "even now I hope it will come back."

If, like us, you were asking "Why haven't I seen much of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots in ages?" when you woke this morning - though admittedly we do that most mornings - then we might have the answer for you.

"It's a very cinematic game, it really lends itself to movie-telling. But the question is, 'How do you translate Snake's
The fourth Metal Gear Solid is still in the in the middle of construction, but series mastermind Hideo Kojima is already brainstorming his next game, a pay-to-play online game where you hand over cash in exchange for stumbling around as a zombie.
"The zombie idea I have is a bit different," he told our colleagues at Edge magazine. "Imagine a large town where half the inhabitants are zombies. Users would subscribe, get inside the town and get bitten. At that stage they become undead and can't
Metal Gear Solid 4 will now not see the light of day, in the US at least, until March 2008 if reports from major games retailer, EB Games prove to be accurate.
Customers who have signed up for updates on the progress of Konami's stealth stunner have, according to Gameswank, received and email notifying them that the games release has slipped from September 1 2007 to March 1 2008.
