Metal Gear Solid 4 release date revealed!

Following a rumor that broke loose during Sony's Destination PlayStation retailer conference yesterday, publisher Konami today stepped up to the plate and confirmed that Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots will ship to US stores on June 12, 2008. At the same time, the company also released an early image of the game's box art, which is likely to change drastically before summer.

Konami reps went on to add that, starting in April, those who pre-order the game will be able to snag a Metal Gear Saga 2.0 DVD, featuring character bios, a recap of the series' story so far, a 20th anniversary retrospective and a collection of MGS4 trailers. More interestingly, those who pre-order early will also get access to the beta for Metal Gear Online, which goes live in April.

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
