According to GameVideos, the "real" version (most likely a higher quality feed of the above video) will arrive 9 p.m. ET.
Now, we're about 85% sure that he meant an option to play all the tracks from the game would be unlockable, but he did say our own favorite tunes. Since Kojima has a lot of fun making his games, who's to say Snake won't come across an MP3 Player on his journey that just so happens to be full of your favorite songs? Snake can rock out while hiding in a barrel, we guess. What do you guys think? Misinterpretation, or a hint at things to come?
Boss characters invade new Metal Gear Solid 4 trailer
Wait ... haven't we seen this trailer before? Yes, the opening moments of this Leipzig-edition Metal Gear Solid 4 trailer starts exactly the same as the previous trailer. But just wait. Your patience will be rewarded ... with bosses. Giant metallic tentacled beasts roar as they take down opposing forces with ease. What's that chill we feel? Could it be fear ... or uncontrollable excitement?
Watch the trailer after the cut.

Kojima talks Metal Gear Online, Xbox 360 and "The Rumble Guy"
When asked about rumble, Kojima-san told a tale of woe: "In Kojima Productions there is a man, we call him The Rumble Guy, and he has nothing to do right now. So every day I worry about him. I want to include Rumble so that he has something to do." Please Sony! Give The Rumble Guy something to do!
Finally, when asked about a 360 version, he reconfirmed what we knew all along: "Right now it's only being made for PS3. No plans for 360 for now." For the complete Q&A, visit Joystiq.
New Metal Gear trailer dies during Leipzig
At the very least, Europe knows that Kojima is aiming for a simultaneous release for its upcoming PS3-exclusive. "In the past, I felt bad that the European versions of Metal Gear were always last. I can confidently say that we aim to have a simultaneous worldwide release with Metal Gear Solid 4."
MGS4 in March '08? We'll find out at TGS
And since it wouldn't be a MGS4 article without stirring up the ridiculous 'OMGZ MGS4 360' hornets nest, the president of Konami also mentioned that they may take the Metal Gear Solid franchise multiplatform some point in the future. It's worth noting that he said FRANCHISE, and not Metal Gear Solid 4. And considering Konami has taken the MGS series to non-Sony platforms before, it's not a huge surprise. So yeah ... MGS4 still isn't coming to the 360, and PS3 owners will be very very happy come next March.
Metal Gear Solid 4 shows off Eva -- Snake didn't age alone
Even so, she looks younger than Solid Snake. How did he age so greatly, leaving people like Meryl and Otacon to look almost childish in comparison? Questions to be answered in the game, we suppose. In any case, a bunch of Metal Gear news popped up today, so this is just a taste of everything that's been announced. More on the way, we're sure.
Kojima walks us through MGS4 gameplay
Wait ... there's actual gameplay in Metal Gear Solid 4? The beautiful cinematic trailers left us perfectly content with watching the game. However, after watching Kojima's walkthrough of the game, we'll be pretty cool with actually having to play the game as well.
Of particular focus is the new camouflage system, where Snake can turn into a statue, or blend in with the floor. Also, you may notice a far more intelligent camera system in this latest iteration of the Metal Gear series: it follows Snake, behind the back, and will jump into an over-the-shoulder view for aiming.
We're glad to say the game looks good. Not just graphically, but it looks to play very well. Certainly, we weren't expecting anything less from Kojima Productions. PS3 owners will have a lot to look forward to when this exclusive arrives next year.
- An in-game demonstration of MGS4: Guns of the Patriots played by Kojima himself.
- First look at some kind of online multiplayer for the Metal Gear Solid series ... more on that after the list.
- New "series content", possibly re-releases or spin-offs like VR Missions.
- Official statement regarding Metal Gear: Portable Ops +.
This is the big quote people are jumping all over: "Since Metal Gear was born on the PlayStation, we would like to keep it a PlayStation game. But we might have to take some steps." What this means to us is exactly what we've predicted. Metal Gear Solid 4 is a timed exclusive if the game does not sell systems. We think it will, but we don't think it will be enough for Konami, so they'll release MGS4 on the 360 about a year later. Sucks for loyal Sony fans, but it's the most likely situation.
The trailer is, as we've said, supposedly voiced in English, but also will detail an entirely new environment. We'd been wondering when Snake and the gang would get out of the dismal, cow-robot overrun city. Chances are, though, it won't be horribly different from what we've already seen. It's rare that Kojima and crew show off later parts of a game before the release, but we might get a glimpse of what to expect. Perhaps something a little more futuristic than a middle-eastern city? Like ... a space station! That'd be a change.
Kojima considers MGS4 Limited Edition tin
While nothing more has really been said since it was mentioned in his latest "HIDECHAN Radio!" show, two weeks ago, that doesn't stop us from pondering on what such a tin could contain. Game? Check. Soundtrack? Would be nice. Artbook? Always fun to have. Replica bandana and dogtags? Why not!
What would you like to see in there, if it ever materialises?
The new trailer clocks in at over 13 minutes in length and what a blissful 13 minutes they are. The final scene with Raiden is incredible and worth the time investment by itself. What are you doing? Check it out NOW -- it demands your attention.
*Updated with embedded video - no more waiting for 20 minutes of buffering to watch some hot Snake action*
Thanks for the headsup Humpty!
