Gearing up for MGS4According to reports from Japanese games magazine Famitsu, the original and hugely popular stealth game, Metal Gear Solid will be released on the Japanese Playstation Network (PSN) this Spring.
Konami's Metal Gear Series was first published in 1998 for Playstation and received high commercial and critical success. With the launch of the latest game in the series, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots due for release in June, the original game, which gamers will also be able to downloaded and play on the PSP, should get fans in the mood for Snake's first next-gen appearance.
Of course, it's extremely likely that it will take an age for Metal Gear Solid to amble its way to the European PSN, it needs to be confirmed for the US PSN first, but with such a huge following it's virtually guaranteed that Snake's original adventure will be confirmed for release in these territories very soon.
