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.
