You Can Stop Begging for a MGS4 Trophy Patch, Konami Heard You Loud and Clear


From the very first second Sony launched the PS3’s Trophy system, fans have been begging Konami to patch Trophies into Metal Gear Solid 4. Konami has continued to hint at plans to do so, but a patch has yet to materialize.

But Konami went beyond hinting in the latest episode in the Kojima Productions podcast, reports IGN. Assistant Producer Sean Eyestone had this to say on the topic:

“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.”

These comments clearly seem to confirm that Trophies are coming, just without saying the actual words or indicating when or how they will be implemented. IGN suggests the possibility of an expanded MGS4 re-release akin to Substance and Subsistence tied into the release of a Trophy patch, hence the reason Konami “can’t say anything just yet.” Sounds logical to me.

Now if only Konami would drop the crummy Konami ID system from Metal Gear Online already…
