Oh man…the mastermind isn't going to be happy.
Some time ago, we learned that quite possibly the most anticipated PSP title of the year, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker , had been delayed past the original March 18 launch date. The new date of April 29 in North America wasn't too terrible but Hideo Kojima still expressed great disappointment in his team and even apologized to the fans. Now, he's gonna have to do it again because Konami has confirmed to CVG that Peace Walker has been pushed back in the UK; this time for about three weeks. The old date was May 28 and the new release date is June 18 for the region in question; now, we're wondering if this has any impact on the current April 29 date for the US… We're hoping it doesn't but either way, UK gamers can't be too happy about it. It appears that Konami is facing a few more issues with the production/producing process, although we don't have any explanatory details. Perhaps they're unnecessary; maybe we can just assume that June 18 will be the final date for the UK. Cross your fingers.
As of now, we still have the North American launch set at April 29. That's less than a month away now and the closer we get to gold status, the better off MGS aficionados will be.
