RUMOR, Metal Gear Solid 4 finally has a release date/ 80GB ps3 Dualshock3 Bundle

Kotaku writes, Word from Destination PlayStation, a retailers-only conference for all things PlayStation related, is that Metal Gear Solid 4 is coming to the PlayStation 3 on June 12, 2008. According to sources there now, the release of Kojima Productions action-stealth game will arrive on a Thursday, oddly enough. Even more interesting is that we're hearing word that Sony will be offering a hardware bundle that features MGS4, an 80GB PlayStation 3 and a DualShock 3 packed-in.

The story is too old to be commented.

Now that will be a sweet deal. And it will move a lot of copies of MGS4 and 80gb PS3's.

SCThor4981d ago

since greats games are coming right after. Don't forget LBP,KZ2 and RFOM2

marinelife94981d ago

I've said before I probably won't have the time or the attention span to finish the original GTAIV campaign let alone any extra content. There are too many games coming out this year that will divert my attention.

MikeGdaGod4981d ago

this is my most wanted game of the year, and i'm definately getting MGS4 the day it comes out but.............

as much as i love this game, its being released in the middle of the summer. and i can't see myself giving this game the type of attention that will be needed for my to finish it. during the summer i'm never in the house, i'm always on the go.

i really wish it was coming in March or April so it can get the attention it deserves. summertime is my gaming off-season.

@SCThor However is sony making effort to let gamers know about these great games after GTA4 releases?

@marinelife9. I have never finished any GTA game i played san andreas as far as i could but eventually i lost interest. I am not the greatest GTA fan but i do understand the fun factor in GTA. I play it just to beat up random ppl in the street and see how many warrants i can get not really for the missions. So unless the DLC is some revolutionary new gameplay and not missions i know i wont pay.

@scottie. I am so happy MGS4 is coming out in sumemr June 12 is perfect for me. So MF'in perfect am bout to explode. This has been my most anticipated game for about 3yrs after i beat MGS3. Only 4 months aaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. lol

Great move on the bundle. Would be even better if the 80GB with dualshock and all was somehow priced at 399. If they do that psn might crash cus the number of ppl buying ps3's will be crazy

Lifendz4981d ago

You want an attach rate? How about through the roof! How about more than a million units sold on day one! This game will PWN!

P.S...Konami, you can have 10 gigs of my HDD space of this game if you need it. I hope you don't, but if you do I'll give it up.

Yeah good deal for people who haven't picked up a ps3 yet

BeaArthur4981d ago

If I didn't already have a PS3 this would make me pick one up.

Blackmoses4981d ago

this would explain why all the current 80 gig models have been discontinued. To start getting the DS3 controllers out in circulation. Damn...JUNE!!! That means I'll have to be done with GTAIV and Haze by then. Not to mention a possible Home launch!

sonarus4981d ago

GTA4 isnt a game you get done with really and please i could finish haze in a day if i wanted. And offcourse home isnt a game. BUt bring it on solid snake. Gonna run away from n4g 2 weeks before release cus i knw there will be spoilers i dont want to see. The fact that i enjoyed the mgs series so much and this new one seems miles better than the others. My only fear at this point has to be the length of the game. Think i heard its the longest game but since its a ps3 game i can already see all the critics looking for any point to butcher it with. Hopefully i heard right and it is the best of all the games.

Blackmoses4981d ago (Edited 4981d ago )

I will be doing the same.

We will be hearing all kinds of garbage like...
"If I wanted to play a game not a movie" or "the game is 13 hours long from beginning to end with 11 hors of cutscenes"

People will always find a reason to complain. I plan on staying away for awhile and then come back with a unbiased review of what I experienced.

oh yeah, I know Home isn't a game. Hope everbody else knows that, but I will be spending some time playing around "within" Home!!

cr33ping_death4981d ago

Nice..... ill tell my bro to hold off on buying his PS3 for this....of course be it actually confirmed. damn this should be nice. with me having less time to play lately GTA4 should be more than enough to hold me over till MGS4 comes out. happy days :)

wageslave4980d ago

For everyone. The gaming industry is going full steam ahead - that's for sure.
