Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots launched at a time when it wasn't mandatory for PlayStation 3 games to include Trophies. But that doesn't mean they'll never show up.
Granted, it has been well over a year since MGS4 graced store shelves, and although many other developers have gone back and added Trophies to their older games, it didn't seem as if Konami would do the same. Given the length of time, many fans have already given up hope. Well, according to Examiner.com , Kojima Productions has indeed heard the request of MGS4 lovers everywhere and have responded in their latest podcast:
"Just to address one issue that we’ve been getting a lot of comments about. And this is, of course, about trophies.
I just wanna tell everybody out there right now that your voices are being heard and that we’re not ignoring you. We hear everything that you are saying. It’s just that we can’t say anything just yet.
But as soon as we have something to say, we will announce it. So, if we can just ask everyone to just be patient, we will give you an answer. But right now we can’t say anything. So we just ask for everyone’s understanding with that and just ask for everybody to remain patient and we’ll let you know."
So basically, Sony's philosophy of "we don't announce anything until there's something to announce" has rubbed off. Essentially, statements like these are typically thinly veiled confirmations, so we're just going to assume that Trophies will indeed be coming for MGS4, although we have no further details at this time. In the meantime, we'll keep our eyes and ears peeled…
