When it comes to Metal Gear Solid 4
, there are two rumors that will just not die. First up, of course, is the zombie-rumor
that the game is going over to the Xbox 360. Second only to that though, is the often denied rumor that there will be a MGS4 demo
coming out prior to the game's release. Now, Konami has gone on the record a number of times to say that it is not happening
, but yet still fans hold out hope.
Unfortunately, PSX Extreme
reports that once again Ryan Payton has denied the reports of an upcoming PSN demo in his regular Kojima Production Report
podcast. While it's annoying we won't be able to get a taste of MGS4
until this Summer, it's important to remember that demos aren't always a good way to really sample a game (think about Heavenly Sword
demo). Instead take solace in the fact that all the development cycles that are involved in making a demo are instead focused towards making MGS4
one of the top exclusive PS3
games of 2008.
