What riches await patient Metal Gear Solid fans at the end of Kojima Productions' days long countdown, now that the teaser timer has reached the zero hour? Why, more waiting of course!

Kojima Productions, in a completely unexpected move, revealed another countdown today, this one an impressive 120 hours in length. Clearly, Hideo Kojima and his merry team of hype engineers enjoys stretching the patience of their fans, offering up a new, noticeably darker, more stormy teaser page full of heavy rain and thunder crashes.

The new version of the teaser offers more than just the numeral "5" to fans, it also flashes with symbols that appear to be "@" or a lowercase "e," "E" and "3." 5@E3? What could it possibly mean?!
