A Snake-Skinned Package with Real Veno

London - 6th May 2008: One of the legends of the PlayStation® generation has taken his partnership with the platform to the next level. Solid Snake, the hero of the Metal Gear Solid® (MGS) franchise, is, this summer, being bundled with PLAYSTATION®3 and a SIXAXIS controller offering millions of PS3 and MGS fans around the world the ultimate gaming combo.

Concluding Hideo Kojima's Metal Gear Solid saga, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is set in a battle-scarred future where huge conglomerates fight for supremacy using armies of hand-picked mercenaries. This devastated world is seen through the battle-weary eyes of an older Solid Snake who has been charged with infiltrating a number of key locations across the globe, including the Middle East and South America. As such, the epic end to Snake's story offers ground-breaking combat elements, a refined control system that offers unprecedented control over the aged hero, and the tying up of key plot lines and loose ends.

Similarly, the accompanying Metal Gear Online features all the stunning stealth and combat elements of Guns of the Patriots, as it drops the player into a series of war zones and game options. With all-out 'Last Man Standing' battles to rescue and protection missions, Metal Gear Online effortlessly transfers the sublime control system of the series to an online competition, creating an absorbing battle between like-minded fans.

Available from June 12 and priced at 439,99 Euros this offer is one of the most exciting bundles to date - bringing two great servants of the games industry together for the conclusion of what has been one hell of a ride!

@Cenobia: HEy, I got tired of this crap! I have hold out on buying either 360 or PS3 and wait for "further developments" due to both machines being absolute crap (sorry to be blunt) in terms of either hardware (360), online (PS3), lack of must have exclusive games(PS3, up to MGS4), gimped PS3 hardware for euroland and one fun filled year of stupid mistakes one after another to the European public (you know, the public that worships them!).

I Love MGS4 and every Kojima game I've come across (Hint: Snatcher needs a remake on the Wii or DS) and I do hope MGS4 is a 10/10 (even after his frontal honesty about the Cell on EDGE last month). I hope everyone who bought a PS3 based on Sony's hype will finnalyhave their hard earned €s justified.

As for me, this is the last straw on a long list of being misstreated by Sony (and I have both PSX and PS2). They need a good lesson in humility. Why the hell do I need a SIXAXIS!? Rumble is last gen!? To hell with you, Sony. The only light of beacon that would still make me consider your BluRay player was the price of this pack and not even such a simple thing you made this right.

Oh, and just for the record, if anyone wonders the 1st time when I started considering the 360 in my future instead of the PS3: The day I came to Kotaku and Namco announced Ace Combat 6 on the 360 only.

Maybe niche, maybe im just a minotiry, but owning every single game from that series (including the japanese, non cut PSX AC3 Electrosphere original) I find it baffling that there isn't >A SINGLE AIRPLANE COMBAT GAME< on the PS3 in its entire lifeline*. 360 has ACE6, Wii has Heatseeker and will get "The Sky Crawlers" from Project Aces.

So here I am, single Wii owner, waiting for the dust to settle, trying to make the best possible decision to jump to a second console for this eneration. Peer pressure is a b*tch, acutally, since all of my friends own 360s. Not a single one of my friends has a PS3 (and all of them are, like me, PSX/PS2 owners)! Considering I live in Sonyland (thats Portugal, btw) , Sony must be doing something really WRONG, to make long time supporters completly turn away, even with MGS4 on the horizon.

If any of you STILL think that Sony is a saint... you really don't live in Europe, do you?

*No, "Warhawk" does not count, sadly...
