Continuing its run of triple-A portable game releases, what with the likes of Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles and Silent Hill Origins dropping in recent weeks, Konami has launched Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops Plus for the PSP and Contra 4 for the DS. Both surefire hits are in stores now, PO+ priced at a frugal $19.99 and Contra 4 running $29.99. I suggest hitting up your favorite game emporium and snatching up this dynamic portable duo ASAP.

“With Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops Plus, Kojima Productions has pushed the limits of the PSP system, creating the definitive portable multiplayer experience,” Said Anthony Crouts, Vice President of Marketing for Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. “Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops Plus brings the fun and fast-paced action of a console multiplayer game to the PSP system, and at a price that gives fans of the series and newcomers alike an amazing value.”

“In celebration of the franchise’s 20th anniversary, we wanted to bring back the retro look and feel of classic Contra while still providing fresh, compelling content,” said Anthony Crouts, Vice President of Marketing for Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. “Well adapted to the Nintendo DS’s dual screens, Contra 4 provides an action-packed experience for seasoned Contra players as well as new fans of the franchise.”
