Metal Gear Solid 4 Dated "Late Q2 2008" Along With MGS4-PS3 Bundle, Online Beta
A few important pieces of Sony news surfaced yesterday, most notably a slightly more finalized release date for the highly anticipated Metal Gear Solid 4.
Gamers can expect to see the game sometime in "late Q2 2008". Earlier reports stated the date as June 12, 2008, but that date has been shot down by Sony.
Sony also confirmed that the Dualshock 3 will be coming to America in April for $54.99 alone, or in a special $499.99 PS3 Metal Gear Solid 4 bundle which includes the game, an 80GB PS3, and the new rumble equipped controller. Sound like a good deal to me!
Last but not least is a special Beta for the separate game, Metal Gear Online, accessed by pre-ordering the Metal Gear Solid 4. The Beta will be launched some time in April. All together, this looks to be an oddly excellent summer for gamers.
