Last update:
"10:34 a.m. -- They kicked us out. Lame."

Uh oh. They better get back in.

Edit: Still reporting!

"10:48 a.m. -- So, yeah. I'm hot. The line has exploded into a mass of humanity outside the door. Kojima passed behind me a litte while ago. A woman with him had to shove me to get some space so that they could pass -- I swear I didn't know he was there!"

Q&A period.

"11:49 a.m. -- In Japan, will Online and MGS4 be seperate or one package?

"It's difficult to explain," Kojima says (through his translator. "We can't really say specifically."

Dude re-asks. He wants an answer!

"We haven't really decided," he says. If you buy MGS4, you'll be able to play some part online at least. They're discussing how much further that online component will go."

"11:53 a.m. --

Q: Is it coming to 360?
A: Not at this junction.

Q: Is the AI on easy or something in the game? Why can Snake make so much noise.
A: It'll be more difficult in the game.

Q: Does teh stealth suit and all the other gadgets make it too easy?
A: They're adjusting. It'll be much more difficult."

LOL, should have known the first q there would be asked.
