Konami has confirmed earlier reports that Metal Gear Solid 4 will indeed come packaged with the multiplayer spin-off title, Metal Gear Online, but it will only be a starter pack.
"We have an online component called a 'starter pack' that's shipping with Metal Gear 4," Konami told GameSpot, before confirming that downloadable content will be released following MGS4's release.
Exactly how much of the game would be in this starter pack went undisclosed, but in PSN terms 'starter pack' basically means it'll be a demo, with the main bulk of the game likely to come as a standalone purchase via the online PSN Store.
Konami promises more info on the deal soon.
