Update #2: It’s official.

Update: More evidence arrives via Konami’s site.

It looks like that mysterious formula which Konami put out has been decyphered.

Kojima wanted us to wait a few weeks to find out what the tease was all about, but crafty folks have uncovered a Famitsu magazine scan showing what looks like a Metal Gear game running on iPod Touch or iPhone hardware.

Here’s hoping that this is a legitimate effort by Kojima and company if all of this turns out to be true.

Below is the scan in question:

A Next Metal Gear Is… On?

posted in: Game News 0

Well that’s what I think the Kojima Productions teaser is saying. However, that’s because I’m not trying to incite flame wars. Yes, it could be attributed to an Xbox 360 debut of the franchise — I acknowledge this, but I also acknowledge the fact that a green power symbol is universal.

As a fan who loves this series, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is my most anticipated game of the year and quite possibly, ever. I purchased a PlayStation 3 for this game. In fact, you could say I assembled my entire home entertainment system in preparation for Snake’s final mission. The expectations are high with the folks at Sony, Konami, loyal followers and critics alike anticipating nothing, but the best from Kojima Productions. I don’t know if it rocked the sales charts or silenced the critics, but I do know it spoke to me and delivered an extremely satisfying gaming experience.
