Yes, we're finally getting Trophies for Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots .
But the game launched over four years ago. Why'd it take so long? Well, Kojima Productions Assistant Producer Sean Eyestone addressed this question in the developer's latest podcast, as cited at Examiner.com .
As it turns out, they just didn't have the manpower to start and complete the project, as it started and stopped multiple times. Although four years may seem like a long time, you have to remember that it's likely that these guys had higher priorities.
"We’ve been trying to get it off the ground. It got started, stopped, started, stopped. It’s been a long process. Unfortunately, it just works out that way because of the staff we have. Unfortunately, we don’t have unlimited staff and, whenever we finished one project, they almost immediately jumped unto the next; which means we couldn’t get the programmers and the designers necessary to work on trophies because they have always been busy with things like Peace Walker or various other projects."
But we're finally gonna get those elusive Trophies, and that means a whole lot of gamers will be diving back into the greatness that was MGS4. It's arguably the greatest game of the generation, after all.
