Since the announcement of Metal Gear Online, it's been left unclear whether or not it would be released as a standalone title or bundled together with Metal Gear Solid 4.

Well, the January '08 issue of the new PlayStation: The Official Magazine (formerly PSM) was just dropped off in VG Blogger Matt's mailbox, headlined on the cover with exclusive confirmation that MGS4 and MGO are in fact being integrated into one value-packed MGS experience for the PS3. Hurray!
