Metal Gear Solid 4 gets Trophy support at last... but that's not all Kojima's got up his sleeve

Metal Gear Solid is going to get Trophy support in the near future, according to Hideo Kojima. In an interview with Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, the Metal Gear head honcho explained that not only will the new budget range version of the game (due in August for 3,990 Yen in Japan) feature Trophy Support, there will also be a patch released around that time for PlayStation 3 owners who already own the game.

Above: War. War never changes. Except when it gets Trophy support

It really is a case of 'better late than never' because Metal Gear Solid 4 was one of the last big games released without Trophy support, meaning one of PS3's biggest hitters has been without the reward system. 

Interestingly, Kojima also revealed he has something planned for the Metal Gear series' 25th Anniversary event on August 30 at Tokyo Midtown (where Konami's Tokyo office is based). He's got an announcement to make which will reportedly have something to do with his new vision for a gaming experience that 'connects people'. It will apparently continue from the MGS Peace Walker 'Transfarring system'.

But he's not giving anything else away. So, as we wait with bated breath (and diazepam-steadied hands), we're left to guess at what sort of Trophies there will be. How about one for actually watching all the cut-scenes? It could be called 'Movie Gear Solid' or 'Cannes of the Patriots'. Or something. Let us know your ideas in the comments.

    Oh man Im this is kinda good news but I've already done everything I know is possible with this game, even the tidious job of getting every single Emblem. I mean yeah it was like mission finally complete getting all those but a throphy then would have been nice! Never the less it might just make me put down mass effect 3 (which im currently making sure ive unlocked everything possible)and give me a reason beat this game again and put it to rest!

    First of all, I love you for making a news post about this, Justin. Second, I've been terrified about this since I first saw it as now I'll have to beat it for the Big Boss emblem again and log even more hours into it with all the other crazy trophies...

    I'm excited for this. I should go re-install the game now lol

    With all those emblems they had in the game I thought it would be easy to change those to trophies, never thought it would take them 4 years, really hope they are not doing that now. I remember that to get one you had die a 100 times, got alerts 250 times and had to play for more then 35 hours before finishing the game. After that I was done with the game for a while. Can't wait to start again now though!

    I'm right there with yeah brother, it was too bad I already 100% the game before those actually started, it took them like 5 months to post those

    Anyone else remember when Kojima said he would NEVER add trophy support for MGS4? I do...

    Everybody bitched at him for resiting, maybe this is him finally giving into demand.

    Snakes quote was "war has changed", "war never changes" is from the fallout series. Maby you already knew that, just wanted to mention.

    Finally the time has come when the greatest ps3 game ever will receive trophy support. I am as happy as can be.
  • Crypto140 - July 11, 2012 9:25 a.m.

    "War. War never changes" is actualy a line from the Fallout Series. In Metal Gear Solid it's "War has changed".

  • cindy-schiebler - July 11, 2012 9:04 a.m.

    FINALLY!!! I doubt they will be retroactive which is to bad, I really don't want to play the boss extreme again. Still though Trophy Support!
