MGS4 Set for Q2 Worldwide Release
It seems Metal Gear Solid 4 is nearly done and is on course for a Q2 release:
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is now playable from start to finish, and on track for a near simultaneous Q2 release in all major territories.
Having been delayed from its initially planned 2007 release, Kojima Productions developed PS3 exclusive Metal Gear Solid 4 has entered the “last push”, according to assistant producer Ryan Payton, and will release in the Q2 launch window with no significant delays between major territories. This is a major boost for US and European PS3 owners, as Konami has previously been somewhat vague over the game’s release timeframe outside of Japan.
I’m going to be very interested in seeing if MGS4 will boost PS3 sales in all regions. It should shift a few consoles over a short period of time but I hope Sony do a MGS4 bundle to entice PS2 owners who haven’t upgraded yet.
I have high hopes for MGS4 but I’m not too fussed on MGS Online just yet.
