HMV is now taking pre-orders for both the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Metal Gear Solid. But the 360 version isn't due until five months later...
Here we go again. The latest 'MGS4-going-multi-platform' rumour is interesting for two reasons. Mega entertainment retailer HMV is taking pre-orders for the 360 version right now and the firm even dates both versions of the game.
Metal Gear Solid 4 will apparently be available from April 18, 2008 on PlayStation 3 only according to the listing. Then, just over five months later, the Xbox 360 will be blessed with Solid Snake's presence on September 26 (one year exactly after the launch of Halo 3, trivia fans).
Rearrange the following words into a well known phrase; Bag - Of - Cat - The - Out.
Pre-order the 360 version of MGS4 here. But for a limited time only we reckon. It'll come down as soon as word gets out, which is already has. We also snapped a pic just so you know we're not making it up. Spotted by CVG reader KayJay.
Update: GamesIndustry has received word from HMV that this is nothing more than an 'admin error'. "We're sorry to have caused such a stir - the oversight has now been corrected," said the retailer.Update out.
