Kojima Productions Assistant Producer, Ryan Payton, has revealed that the company will not be releasing a demo of the highly anticipated Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots next month, despite reports to the contrary.
Reports of such a release originated from publication PSW, which claimed that a playable demo of the PlayStation 3-exclusive stealth romp would make an appearance on PlayStation Network some time next month.
However, speaking in a recent webcast, Payton shot down any hopes of seeing a demo, stating, "that's not the case".
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is due out in Q2 2008.

MF's.MF's.MF's. I don't know about the rest of you but I'm getting real tired of hearing about delays and cancellations.
Nevermind, so long as the game is out on time.

Yeah the game is more important however I really would have liked to play the demo

its funny how is everybody shock about this because Konami has said there wouldn't be a demo before.... its just people report the wrong things just to get a story out there and then when the developers come out themselves and squash those false reports then people get mad.... im not surprise ..

The way i see it is the less time there working on the demo the more time they can spend getting the damn game done .

I agree with you guys too. Reporting on news that isnt even news does my head in. Howbout sticking to the facts and stop makin stuff up. I thought they already said there isnt going to be a demo. Someone check the facts and leave it at that.

Yeah, I wish they would flag unconfirmed articles as rumors and you could select rumor filter so we don't have to keep reading articles that usually end up being false in the end anyway.

so when this MGS4 is coming out any why so we can have some real fun with it ,and also to see what kinds of games konami will bring to ps3

u guys can't get mad about other people starting rumors about something thats not true ... because ive even seen forums and other articles stating that theres was going to be a MGS4 demo.. especially after CES 2008 ended .... there just probably stating that so that the rumor doesn't get out of control like others n the past....

there was an interview a few weeks ago that said there wouldn't be a demo because they're more interested in making a high quality game. Looking it over, I guess #s 6, 8, 9, and 10 all agree with me as well. At least I know I'm not the only one.....

Common guys, Its not Konami's fault that website editors and news reporters are idiots. If I said MGS 4 is cancelled and it turns out to be a lie, wouldn't it be my problem not Konami's?
If you hate this game cause of all the news thats comming out for it, then maybe you should stop going to "NEWS" sites. I mean seriously, you come here to hear about news, if it turns out to be false, you shrug and go, oh well, what else is happening today.
Either way, stop blaming MGS4 for other peoples stupidity.

there making some really bad moves. they need to release this game as soon as possible or i will just go and get my money back cuz this game seeems like it won't ever come. cuz there jerking around consumers and shyt.

Well it was said before that there would be no demo. People only have themselves when they get worked up about unconfirmed rumors and dates.
- 6:25am EST - January 25th, 2008
Im seriously sick of delays and cancellations seriously this is so annoying why report such rubbish PSU if you know it will be canceled. You guys keep reporting stupid rumors and you only spread them, dissappointing people who take it as truth.

Not truly surprised about this. Konami was pretty much adament in the past about there not being a DEMO before release. On a game such as this, I would rather not play a demo version and then be depressed after finishing it wanting more and more. Was not a major MGS fan in the past....nothing against the series. But I must admit that I am psyched for this title. Hopefully they just focus on finishing an amazing product.

demo or no demo, shouldn't have a huge impact on sales. there is enough hype, that a demo would probably only hurt sales if it was bad

Thats okay about no demo. All that would have done was stopped me from racking up more medal and kils on Warhawk!
