IGN Reports: "Konami shows off the most amazing game that this great Earth will ever gift to us.
Mr. Kojima-san promises that all will be revealed in Metal Gear Solid 4 -- all of the characters key to the saga will be seen or referenced, and all of the story elements will be wrapped up in this fourth game. This promises to wrap up the storyline of our hero Solid Snake (and given that early trailers of the game showed Snake contemplating suicide, this well may be the end for him.) Exact gameplay details are still scarce, but we have learned that while the game uses the same tactical sneaking action gameplay that the series is known for, there will be many more new and surprising elements added to MGS4 to make it a unique and dynamic chapter in the franchise. Kojima is investing all of his knowledge and experienced gained from 20 years in the market, and given that the MGS series has been flawless up until this point, in Kojima we trust. "
