Snake's latest gripping tale won't be in the hands of gamers until Q2 2008
MGS4 needs more time in the oven

It’s sad, but true. The most highly-anticipated PlayStation 3-exclusive game since the launch of the system has been delayed. Metal Gear Solid 4 will now ship sometime in the second quarter of 2008.

Fans of the series rejoiced when trailers for Metal Gear Solid 4 told of a winter release date, which some pegged for as soon as February or March, but alas, Old Snake won’t be appearing in finished form until several months after that.

According to the press release, “Konami has decided to delay the title's release in order to make further improvements to the quality of the game and provide even greater enjoyment for more customers worldwide.”

The announcement of the delay is certainly a disappointment, but definitely one that is permissible. All those eagerly waiting for the game would rather have the polished experience that all are expecting rather than some rush job.

Besides, with the number of games that were originally slated for Q4 2007 now being moved to Q1 2008, there really won’t be a shortage of hot titles on the PlayStation 3... as long as Grand Theft Auto IV stays on track.
