After 25 years of Metal Gear, Konami has figured out just how to keep everybody happy, up-to-date, and well informed of everything going on with the series. The answer is simple: A new online portal, designed to host all the news that's fit to print about the events and releases planned around the anniversary of the franchise.
The site's already packed with news, touching on the the 25th anniversary sale, and the social networking accounts for the game. More excitingly, series creator Hideo Kojima has announced a major update for Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots on PS3. After four years, the game has finally received Trophy support, with 34 added to the classic game.
In addition to this sort of newsbites, the new portal will also track the movements of Kojima himself, who is mid-way through a hectic year of touring the globe, chatting to people about (basically) how great Metal Gear Solid really is. He doesn't need to say much: To December 2011, the series had sold more than 31 million copies around the world.
Stay tuned - you never know where he might pop up next!
I like video games, fishing, Depeche Mode, long walks on the beach, writing discussion papers and cups of tea. Not necessarily in that order.
