MGS4 Release Date and Bundle [Update]

I have a friend attending Destination Playstation. He just sent me a text with some exciting info. MGS4 will be released on June 12, 2008. It will be bundled with a 80GB PS3 with a Dual Shock 3 as well. This will be great for those people that haven’t got a PS3 yet and want to jump in.

Side note for PSP Users:

There will be a Blood Red PSP bundled with God of War in June. Which is odd, because that game is out next week.

[Update]

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots PS3 Bundle
To coincide with the much-anticipated North American launch of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots in late Q2 2008, SCEA will introduce a PS3 bundle, which will include an 80GB PS3, the upcoming blockbuster Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, and a DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller for $499.99 (MSRP).

As has been announced previously, MGS4 will include a Metal Gear Online “Starter Pack.” If you can’t wait to try out MGS4, the good news is you don’t have to much longer. Those who pre-order the game will be guaranteed access to a multiplayer beta test for Metal Gear Online scheduled for late April.

Where can I pre-order??! I want in on that Beta :D

Kotaku says that the DualShock 3 is coming out for the PS3 on April 15th for $54.99. Meh. I have one already. :)

We have more word from retailer conference Destination PlayStation: the DualShock 3—you know, that DualShock we’ve been waiting for since the PS3’s launch—has gotten a US release date.

Set to launch April 15th for $54.99, it’s slated to coincide with the release of GT5 Prologue. Oh yes, feel those engines roar through your controller and make your SIXAXIS-wielding friends envious…like they’re just playing a video game or something.

Top Secret 2009 Title

There are tons of top-secret products under development that we don’t know about yet. Some of them will be amazing, and most others will fail to live up to their sky high ambitions; that’s just how it works.

Normally, such secret projects aren’t worth talking about until we can really talk about them, but this is just interesting enough to mention.

BBC says:

So what else was I shown? Well, I was shown a trailer for a game not due out till 2009 but was sworn to absolute secrecy. Apparently, Sony just wanted to give a glimpse of what the console will be capable of.

In fact, the game is such a secret that when I mentioned the game to Phil Harrison last week he was unsure at first whether even to admit the title existed. When I explained I had been shown it under strict Non Disclosure Agreement terms he looked relieved.

I don’t mean to be a tease – all I can say is that I was left speechless. If the footage I was shown truly is “in game”, as told to me by the Sony PR people, then we could be on the brink of a step change in what games consoles are capable of in terms of story-telling and immersion.

Is this Heavy Rain? A PS3 God of War? The ICO game? Something else we already know about? Something completely different?

Talking about something that can’t be talked about is lame, but I can’t help but be a little bit excited :)
