We thought we'd be getting it, but Konami now says it's a no-go.
According to the latest Kojima Productions podcast, it seems that heavily anticipated playable demo for Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots will not be coming to the PlayStation Store before the game's launch early next year. The podcast's host, Ryan Payton, said- "I can tell you, as of right now, we don't have any plans of uploading this demo on the PlayStation Store." So of course, any rumors going around that say we might see the MGS4 demo next week are false. This isn't good news for Metal Gear fans, but hey, this only makes the final product that much more earth-shattering.
Besides, it wasn't all bad news in the podcast. Flak master Michael Shelling announced that the PSP sequel, Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops+ , has gone gold and will ship on November 13. For handheld owners, that's awesome, but PS3 owners looking for a sweet demo are just gonna have to wait until the real deal hits store shelves.
