Metal Gear Solid 4 on PlayStation 3 is finally set to receive Trophy support, according to Hideo Kojima in an interview with Famitsu (via Andriasang).

Japanese gamers will be able to buy a brand new budget version of Metal Gear Solid 4 in August, which will come complete with Trophy support. Existing owners of the game will be able to download a patch to add the functionality to the game - there's currently no word on when the update will be available in Europe.

Metal Gear Solid 4 launched back in June 2008, followed closely by the introduction of PlayStation trophies in July. The game earned an excellent 9/10 in our Metal Gear Solid 4 review.

VideoGamer.com Analysis

This is great news for MGS fans, but Konami and Kojima Productions have certainly taken their time.

Is it merely a coincidence that the news came on the same day we revealed that hit novel series 50 Shades of Grey started out as Metal Gear Solid fan-fiction, 50 Shades of Gray Fox? We'll let you decide.

Yeah they have.

Played on it a few years ago and as usual just a load of cut scenes all the time for me.

It's nice they have gone back to it though and added trophies for it, wouldn't make me wanna play it again mind.

Thing is, backward Trophy support isn't usually something developers like to do and Sony don't put pressure on companies to do it, so it's pretty much a bonus for any classic game that came out before trophies were implemented to get them.

Trophy support!?

And yeah, this means I'll be playing MGS4 at least another 4 times. Once I completed it 6 times in a week, including twice in one day, because I was hell-bent on getting the emblems. It keeps such poor track of the emblems you have, though, so I had spreadsheets and stuff and it was a mess. Yeaahhh I miss unemployment.
