Pete Stone, UK general manager for Konami, has told MCV that the publisher has written agreements in place with retailers in order to safe guard against early sales of Metal Gear Solid 4 taking place before the official street date.
"We pride ourselves on working closely with retailers and have a continuation of the singed agreement system we used so successfully before. All major retailers are supplying written agreements that they will honour the street date no matter what, making it a level playing field across the board. We all want the game to be a huge success, and for everyone to benefit from this release." said Stone.
Stone then went on to mention about the amount of stock that will be available on release; “With demand for MGS4 at such a high level, I am delighted to confirm that we are continually manufacturing stock to meet the phenomenal demand. We want to make sure that everyone gets a good allocation of what is the key PS3 title of the year,”
Metal Gear Solid 4 will be one of the most anticipated titles for the PS3 this year, so check back soon to see our review.
