‘MGS4’ trophy patch is finally coming

This has been rumoured, talked about, hinted by Kojima, delayed by Konami, and complained about by fans, an infinite number of times since trophies arrived on the PS3.

Now though, 2008’s Metal Gear Solid 4 will finally be receiving a trophy patch.

In an interview with Japanese publication Famitsu, creator Hideo Kojima confirmed the news. The game will be getting a budget re-release in Japan on August 30th to coincide with the series’ 25th anniversary. That version will carry trophy support out of the box, but existing owners will be able to update their games too.

Expect news in the coming days on worldwide launch details for both the new MGS4 disc and the patch.

 

[UPDATE: Kojima has now confirmed that an option to fully install the game will also be included in the new budget version; allowing for much faster load times. Whether it will be in the patch or not is still uncertain. Furthermore, it has been revealed that MGS4 will carry a total of 34 trophies.]
