MGS4 dated for June 12?

Whispers from an on-going retailer conference could have finally revealed the release date for Metal Gear Solid 4: June 12, 2008.

Word from the conference, dubbed Destination PlayStation, is that Sony will also be including a hardware bundle complete with MGS4, an 80GB PlayStation 3 and DualShock 3 in the same pack.

"As a gamer, you may not have heard of Destination PlayStation - a meeting between Sony PlayStation, retailers, and 3rd party teams taking place right now in Arizona," reads the official Sony Blog. "But the discussions at DPS are generally pretty significant."

The post continues: "To coincide with the much-anticipated North American launch of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots in late Q2 2008, SCEA will introduce a PS3 bundle, which will include an 80GB PS3, the upcoming blockbuster Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, and a DualShock 3 wireless controller for $499.99 (MSRP)."

We're currently on the case with Konami to confirm the June 12 date.
