Three weeks ago, Konami extended a once in a lifetime invitation to a handful of journalists including one from IGN. Fourteen people from around the world gathered together at the Konami Super Campus in Nasu to experience one of the most anticipated titles in recent history, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots in a specialized boot camp for the game.
IGN was sequestered for three days at their facility for two specific tasks. The first task was that IGN were to play through the entire title from start to finish with the Konami team gathering their stats and play information as they progressed.
The second task was much more important, because at the end of every gameplay session, IGN were asked to provide detailed feedback, which would be given to the development team to make adjustments to the final build of the title.
Not only was IGN getting a chance to complete the game before anyone else, but they were making an impact on the overall game that will launch worldwide on June 12th.
