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.

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.
